Fabian Milat

Milat to run for council and board

Fabian Milat will be contesting two elections next month. He will be seeking election to Delta council and re-election to the Delta school board. Milat will be running as an independent for both positions. “We need steady leadership through these difficult times,” he said. “I would like to meld the educational and city concerns and issues to benefit all Deltans. Increased communication between the two local governments will result in efficiencies and cost savings that will benefit all taxpayers.” Milat, who has served as a school trustee for nine years, said he is proud of his track record on the board, noting he was the only trustee to vote against school closures and school land sales. He said the school district has much to be proud of, including being one of the first to bring geothermal energy to schools that will result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings through lower utility costs. “Nine years on the Delta school board has given me great experience into government finances and I hope to bring that skill set to council while continuing to maintain fiscal prudence at the school district, which has the fourth lowest administration costs in the province.”

Enrollment decline ahead

District down 100 students this year, but steeper drop expected over next couple of years BY

The Delta school district is going to face some tough times due to a much steeper drop in student enrollment over the next couple of years. Deputy superintendent Garnet Ayres offered that grim forecast when asked about student popu-

lation projections at the Delta school board meeting Tuesday. “We’re in for some serious declines,” he said. “We’ve been fortunate they’ve been gradual over the last couple of years, but we’re in for some rougher times.” Noting district initiatives such as new academies have helped ease the ongoing decline recently, Ayres said more significant

drops appear inevitable in the next couple of years that can’t be dampened. The enrollment should eventually flatten and then gradually start rebounding in about seven years, he explained. “If that happens, it won’t be anything like the levels we had before,” he told the Optimist following the meeting. The school board was provided

the latest enrollment numbers for the 2011/12, which has seen the district lose over 100 students to stand at 15,558. Meanwhile, enrollment has increased significantly in two areas of special programs that require more time and resources — special education and ESL. See ENROLLMENT page 3

DSS drag racer sets record Ladner high school establishes Canadian mark with electric truck that’s far from finished Delta Secondary automotive students hit a new milestone last week, setting Canada’s first electric drag racing record. With rains threatening, instructor Casey Mynott was determined to provide his students an opportunity to make history in their electric drag racing truck. The weather held off and student Alex Lehmann put together two repeat runs in Canada’s first electric drag racing vehicle to stand for an official track record, setting Canada’s first and only electric drag racing record. The paperwork has been filed and the sanctioning body of electric drag racing, the National Electric Drag Racing Association, has confirmed Delta Secondary as the Canadian record holder. “It’s a great achievement for the students who have committed so much time and energy to this project over the past two years,” says Mynott. “In order to set the record the same student was required to be behind the wheel for two repeat quarter-mile runs,

With each trip to the track, the students are learning more about their electric drag truck, tweaking and changing the vehicle to get better performance. With limited track dates available, the team will now have to refocus its efforts in

ENROLLMENT from page 1 Like most school district’s in B.C., Delta, which had an all-time high of 18,763 students in 1980, has been suffering from a declining trend over the past number of years. According to a consultant’s findings for the school board four years ago, Delta’s enrollment is projected to decline to 14,500 students by 2016, after which time it could level out. Ministry of Education projections done this year are even more dire, pegging

Kanakos seeks a return to council

Delta’s enrollment at just 13,332 by 2016. Whatever the drop, it will undoubtedly have huge implications on the school board’s budget, which is funded by Victoria on a per pupil basis. This past spring trustees adopted a budget that had a several reductions to help make up a $3.49 million shortfall. At the time, trustee Simon Truelove, noting about $11 million had been cut in three years, said the

the shop at Delta Secondary as the high school drag race program at Mission Raceway has wrapped up for the 2011 season. “We always get asked how many horse or how fast will it go?” says Grade 12 student Ian Donaldson, a committed team member. “Four hundred horse and 400 foot pounds of torque at zero rpm — that’s the

answer for those that are wondering.” Donaldson and Mynott aren’t necessarily concerned with how fast, but how cool it is they have built, from the frame out, the only electric drag racing project of its type in Canada and one of only two high school projects in North America. So does the truck go like lightning? The record was

set with two consecutive runs running the quartermile in 14.67 seconds at 83.58 mph. “We’ve set the bar,” says Mynott. “Is it crazy fast? Not yet, but we are raising the bar and are setting new goals which allows new students to come into the automotive program and continue the learning experience.”

board has managed to maintain a high level of success, but now some students will feel the effects. Chairman Dale Saip described the cupboard as “bare” as far as being able to make further reductions. The previous year was a tougher one for the board, which decided to close Delta Manor and Boundary Beach elementary schools. Special programs and educational assistants were also reduced as part of that series of budget reductions. The Ministry of Education announced this year that school districts

would receive $4.7 billion in operating funding in 2011/12, an increase of $58 million over current funding levels. That works out to an average of $44 more per pupil. Delta Teachers’ Association president Paul Steer and the B.C. Teachers Federation were quick to note that while dollar amounts have gone up, they have not kept pace with the increases in inflation and the costs downloaded to school districts. Meanwhile, some hope may be on the horizon, according to Delta trustee

Laura Dixon, who’s participating in a B.C. School Trustees Association effort to have the provincial government re-examine the current formulas and funding model. Dixon said the association has an agreement with the Ministry of Education to work on several issues. “The education minister, up to this point, has not said that he’s willing to re-examine the funding formula. So the fact that he’s agreed to work with the BCSTA, this could be the moment we get our toe in the door finally,” she said.

Former councillor Jeannie Kanakos announced Wednesday she’s looking to return to Delta council. Her candidacy has been endorsed by fellow independent Bruce McDonald, who’s seeking re-election to council, and Laura Dixon, who is running for a second term on the Delta school board. “I would be honoured to serve the Delta residents again and to contribute to making our good community better. It is a bonus to run with Laura Dixon and Bruce McDonald, who I respect and who have done so much for Delta,” said Kanakos. Kanakos served a three-year term on council after being elected in 2005. She didn’t seek reelection in 2008 in order to run for the Liberals against Delta North NDP MLA Guy Gentner in the 2009 provincial election. “Jeannie brings an excellent track record as a Delta municipal councillor. She is known for being prepared and she gets things done,” stated McDonald. Kanakos said her platform focuses on the importance of sustainability in Delta. “I look forward to Delta becoming a sustainable community and as your municipal councillor, I will consider the environmental, economic and social factors when making decisions for our community.”

Mireille Goyer films a video at Boundary Bay Airport last month to accept the 2011 Let’s Go Flying Award. Aviation Worldwide Week in March. The initiative saw 700 girls and women introduced to flying. She also organized an international event last year to commemorate the centennial of licensed female pilots. “Women are the great untapped pool of potential pilots,” said AOPA president Craig Fuller on the group’s website. “Here in the United States, they make up only about six per

cent of the total pilot population. Goyer’s efforts to urge more women to learn to fly are in the finest tradition of AOPA’s Let’s Go Flying campaign to grow the pilot population.” The award honours the individual or organization that best demonstrates the passion and commitment needed to ensure the future of general aviation by ensuring there are pilots to fly, the site states.

Peter Roaf Executive director has put considerable effort into the B.C. Chamber Executives organization. His ability to get things done is truly remarkable. Peter’s leadership and mentoring is leaving a lasting legacy in both his community and the B.C. Chamber Executives.” Roaf said he completed a good part of last year as interim president of the B.C. Chamber Executives and was also chair of the conference committee. At the group’s AGM he formally succeeded to the position of president. The British Columbia Chamber Executives was founded in 1981 to promote and deliver professional development to the executives of chambers of commerce throughout the province.

nity, fostered membership growth in the chamber and has been willing to take risks to achieve change. The award also recognizes an executive who has served as a champion of the chamber network, as a mentor to new executives and deemed to be a leader by their peers and their chamber. “Peter Roaf is all of these and more,” said Deb McClelland, past president of the British Columbia Chamber Executives. “He has been a mentor to chamber executives across the province and has provided guidance and leadership to strengthen the chamber movement as the voice of business.” In his support, Delta Chamber of Commerce past chair John Appleby recognized Roaf’s contribution through “his relationship and support to his board, his role in the community, and his contribution to the growth and development of the chamber, all undertaken with quiet efficiency.” The award was presented to Roaf by the 2010 recipient Bruce Carter, CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, who commented, “Peter has been involved in many projects and most recently

The Chamber Accreditation Council of Canada has re-accredited the Delta Chamber of Commerce for a three-year period in the large chamber category and “with Distinction” after successfully completing a two-year initial period. This national accreditation means the accredited chamber keeps a strategic focus on core chamber activities, and is recognized for its dependable governance, distinctive brand identity when compared to other business organizations, strong “voice of business” in the local community and active role in national and international policy advocacy. The letter announcing successful re-accreditation included the comment the Delta Chamber of Commerce continues, “...to demonstrate to the business community within which you operate that your chamber is run in a strategic and professional way and that your operations reflect standards of business excel-

lence.” “What’s important to us is, by maintaining this national standard of accreditation, we can assure all chamber members, the rest of the business community, the overall Delta community and chambers throughout Canada that we provide value and service to business,” said Delta Chamber of Commerce chair Ian Tait. “The board, committees, staff, office volunteers and members all should be pleased with this national level recognition,” said executive director Peter Roaf. “But it’s not just those here today who should be reassured or thanked. There are the many hundreds of people who have built the chamber and served the business community for more than 100 years here in Delta.” The 400-member Delta chamber was the sixth, out of 130 chambers and boards of trade in B.C., to achieve its original accreditation rating in 2009. There are only 17 chambers accredited in Western Canada.

Delta Cable prepared for increase in 3D offerings

Delta Cable announced last week it is one of the first in North America to provide 3D capability for its video customers. Delta Cable first broadcasted movie and live sports 3D programming over its fibre network late last year, confirming the company’s system is ready to handle the growing 3D content being produced by movie studios and TV networks. “Our research shows that 3D TVs are becoming increasingly popular,” said Wayne Rothenberger, regional manager Delta Cable. “As our customers have

been investing in this technology, we have been proactively preparing to deliver the best 3D programming experience. We have been installing HD and 3D ready digital receivers in our customers’ homes for over a year now and offer HD and 3D ready receivers to customers who require an upgrade.” As the holiday season approaches, TV manufacturers are expected to capitalize on the growing popularity of 3D ready TVs. According to industry research, global sales of 3D TVs are expected to grow to more than 50 million

units by 2014. Delta Cable’s digital receivers are HD, Bluray quality and 3D ready, which means customers who invest in a 3D TV are immediately able to enjoy full 3D programming. A regular slate of 3D content will be starting this month through Delta Cable OnDemand with the premiere of the Hollywood blockbuster Thor 3D and the James Cameron-produced Sanctum 3D. “This is the first of many movies, programs and sporting events our customers will be able to enjoy in 3D,” said Rothenberger.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW Delta Secondary has provided an intriguing twist in the conversation about where Ladner’s second artificial turf field should be located. In fact, the more I think about the town’s only high school playing host to the field, the more sense it begins to make. Whether Delta’s two branches of local government can come together to make it happen is the $2.5 million to $4.5 million question, but it’s a discussion that would most definitely be worth having in the months to come. Delta began seeking out a site for a second turf field earlier this year, turning to user groups for input on which park would be the most appropriate. Three contenders were eventually pared to one and I can definitely see the rationale for leaning toward Dugald Morrison: The existing soccer field is a soggy mess and the municipal precinct location translates into decent access and limited impact on the surrounding neighbourhood. However, now that Delta Secondary has been added to the mix, I’m not so sure Dugald Morrison should continue to be considered the frontrunner. The biggest thing DSS, and its 1,200-student population, has going for it is the obvious ability to make much greater use of the amenity. The field, which would be hopping evenings and weekend regardless of where it’s located, would also be busy throughout the day if sited at DSS, something that couldn’t be said for Dugald Morrison, the closest school to which was closed a couple of years ago. That’s not to say the Delta Secondary plan doesn’t have its drawbacks, including the imposition of lights, traffic and noise on neighbouring homes, but I suspect the largest stumbling block may well come from some sort of turf war between the municipality and school district. Given the district doesn’t have two nickels to rub together these days, it would likely be up to Delta to finance the lion’s share of the project, only to see the finished product shine on school board property. That might prove hard to stomach for some over at municipal hall, but they must remember it’s all the same taxpayer, and if that taxpayer can get more bang for the buck by locating the field at the high school rather than a park, then Delta has to seriously consider that possibility. I’ve been to turf fields attached to high schools in Vancouver, Richmond, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge in the last few months, so clearly there’s an ability to make it happen. Whether that can take place here remains to be seen.

Thanksgiving is perfect time to reflect upon our good fortune MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT There is an online survey that identifies Thanksgiving as the fifth most popular holiday in Canada. Thanksgiving is above Victoria Day but behind Halloween, which is actually an occasion, not a holiday. Although the idea of Thanksgiving is about as sound of a concept for a holiday as you can get, I don’t think it has been given the consideration it really deserves. Getting together with friends and family to celebrate the harvest is a welcome and obvious holiday that I am sure we all cherish. Some of my fondest fall memories have been Thanksgiving related. Pre-dinner football on my grandparents’ lawn, the great turkey meltdown of 1972 when grandpa overcooked the bird by a couple

of hours and it collapsed in a heap when he tried to carve it and, of course, the fairly recent revelation that no one in the extended family actually likes Brussels sprouts. The dinners were always and are still lively and animated events that are a whole bunch of fun. This year, I am going to pay tribute to, and be thankful for, the circumstances that allow me and my friends and family to enjoy this weekend. I think it is time we took a page out of the Remembrance Day holiday and observe a minute of silence in our own personal way to reflect upon our good fortune beyond a plate of turkey with all the trimmings. Take the time staring at yourself in the mirror, walking the dog or whatever. Just take the minute to look around your house or up the block. Look at kids playing in the park. Take any bitterness out of your mind for just this moment and spare your issue angst to really appreciate your life as a Canadian. Take a second to be proud and thankful that you have been taken care of and governed appropriately

The Optimist encourages readers to write letters to the editor. Letters are accepted on any topic, although preference is given to those on local matters. The Optimist reserves the right to edit letters and the decision to publish is at the discretion of the editor or publisher. All letters must be signed, dated and include the writer’s phone number

for all of your life. Be hopeful for the future for you and your family and recognize that you may not always get your way but in the end you will have more to be thankful for than most in this world. Empathize with younger people who feel despair and who are fraught with angst and a sense of hopelessness. They are telling us something in their riots and protests and we need to listen. Help them grow and adapt without being condescending. Ask them to take a moment, too, to appreciate what they have so they can compare to what they think they need. They will figure it out. They always do. After your thankful minute congratulate yourself for giving yourself some “me” time, and remember your moment the next time you feel your blood pressure rising when you can’t find a parking spot or you hit two red lights in a row. This weekend, when you have the opportunity, hug your friends and family with just that little bit extra. You and them will feel much better for it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

October 7, 2011 The Delta Optimist A9

Editor: After reading about yet another traffic fatality, I can’t hold back any longer. Twice over the course of two days some “jackass” decided it was OK to pass me on the right, which is both an illegal and dangerous move. Both times I was riding my Harley Davidson touring motorcycle, not exactly a small bike. The first incident involved a white Honda

while merging from Ladner Trunk onto Highway 17. I yielded to traffic on Highway 17, only to have this “jackass” go around me on the right, using the bus stop pullout to accelerate. The second incident was on 12th Avenue when a car coming the other way with several sheets of plywood on the roof lost its load just ahead of me. I swerved to avoid the sheets of wood skidding in my direction, only to find

a black VW passing on the right that came within inches of hitting me. Lastly, I have seen countless people whom don’t seem to know what to do when an emergency vehicle is driving down the opposite lane. Seems many people do not know that by law you are required to pull over and stop until the emergency vehicle has passed. Pull over and stop, people. Don’t just everybody

either ignore the ambulance and keep driving, or stop in both lanes and block the ambulance or fire truck. It could be your house that is on fire, or one of your loved ones that is in dire medical need, and the delay of emergency personnel could mean the difference between life and death. Perhaps it is time to make a professional driver course mandatory before you can get your licence. D. McDonald

Plenty of questions surround move to smart meters Editor: For those of you who think smart meters are a good thing, or those who know little about them, educate yourselves and consider: 1. Right off the top, it is going to cost taxpayers $1 billion to replace the present analog meters that are perfectly fine. This money would be better spent on education, health care or job creation. 2. With former premier

Gordon Campbell’s Energy Act, the B.C. Utilities Commission has not been allowed to review and approve a business plan. 3. Concerned taxpayers have not been allowed public hearings. 4. These are wireless digital transmitters that can, 24/7, invade our privacy and collect all kinds of data that can be sold to anyone. 5. Hackers will be able obtain data, such as whether we are home or not.

6. This radio frequency radiation cannot be turned off, unlike our cell phones or wifi transmitters. 7. People with health problems or electro hypersensitivity are being made sick or sicker. 8. No energy is conserved by this meter. It only reports usage like an analog meter. 9. Provinces like Ontario are finding that consumer bills are climbing by as much as 150 per cent.

10. B.C. Hydro had the choice to use hard wired smart meters, but it chose wireless. Why? 11. Citizens of the Netherlands protested so vehemently smart meters were abandoned. 12. Education is the only way to learn to conserve energy. 13. Finally, ask yourselves: Who is behind this global effort to create a global electrical grid? Mark Warwarick

Michelle

Michelle was found wandering around the streets of North Delta and was brought in to the shelter intact, with no ID. After her stray holding time the shelter spayed her and she is now ready for adoption. She is quite a sweet cat and adores people. Michelle does not like other cats and would do best in a home with no other animals. She is fond of nice soft blankets (preferably pink), cat toys with bells and cat nip.

Offer expires Nov. 15/11

For the second consecutive year, the grandchildren of the late Lorraine Guichon thanked their community for its amazing support throughout this summer’s produce season with a fundraiser in support of Delta Hospital.

On Saturday, Sept. 10, their roadside produce stand on Arthur Drive dedicated the proceeds of the corn and potato sales to the Delta Hospital Foundation in memory of their grandma, who passed away in November of 2009.

At the end of the day, $3,397 was raised for the hospital as the community stopped by car after car for fresh vegetables. The Guichon grandchildren would like to thank everyone who came out. They all had a terrific day

and the support by the community of Delta Hospital was very much appreciated. The Delta Hospital Foundation raises funds so Deltans have access to the best medical services close to home. Since 1988, it has raised over $22 million.

Thanksgiving is the time of year when many gather around family, food and share the many blessings in their lives. Although there are many different traditions that surround this holiday, they all revolve around us being thankful for the good things in our lives. Some of these blessings are having good health, being surrounded by friends and family that we care about, having a job, food on our tables, and some may even be thankful that it means an extra day off from work or school. Whatever, we are thankful for when we sit around the table and think about our blessings, it is unbelievable how much we have to be thankful for.

During this time the hymn “Amazing Grace” often comes to mind. The part that often comes to mind is, “that saved a wretch like me.” We have so many things that we are blessed with that we often forget the greatest blessing of all. That blessing is the gift of eternal life in heaven with our Lord and Saviour. This gift is open to all people and is very simple to have. John 3:16 puts it clearly: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” An eternal life without worrying or suffering, and it’s free! Now this is truly something to be thankful about. Happy Thanksgiving.

adner singer/songwriter Rosemarie Hurst has released her second CD after making it through some serious health issues. “I decided that I really needed to get going on the CD as I didn’t expect to be around to finish it,” says Hurst, who suffered a stroke and ruptured brain aneurysm in 2009. She says she’s recuperating well and looks and sounds the same but has issues with multi-tasking, short-term memory loss, confusion and exhaustion. Hurst, who’s also a nature photographer, says she focuses on what she can do, rather than what she can’t. The album is titled Faithfully Yours — Ballads of E. Pauline Johnson. “I found it a challenge to record as far as my energy went,” says Hurst. “I could only do three hours or so at a time. It was wonderful to complete this project as it was one of my dreams.” The CD is based on the work of Pauline Johnson (1861-1913), a Canadian poet known for celebrating her First Nations heritage in her writing. “I love her poetry and I

admire her so much for her courage, tenacity, fearlessness ... and belief in herself. She was ahead of her time and her story is a very fascinating and inspiring one.” Johnson went on a series of speaking SUBMITTED PHOTO tours in Rosemarie Hurst has a new CD out.

A

group of Delta Secondary students is organizing a charity hockey game at the Ladner Leisure Centre Sunday. Anybody can drop in and take part for a minimum donation of $5. The game “just evolved into this big charity event,” says Grade 11 student Chris McCluskie. Proceeds will support

Cops for Cancer fundraising efforts for the Canadian Cancer Society. Katie Smillie, another organizer, says her sister Mirren was one of the four students at DSS who had their heads shaved last week when the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley team stopped at the Ladner high school. Organizers are hoping around 200 people will come out to the game. Smillie says she started a Facebook page for the

event and it met with a lot of interest. “In an hour we had 100 saying they were coming,” she says. Referees and goalies have been lined up to participate and organizers already have custom jerseys (practice jerseys with stenciled logos and numbers) ready for the game. The charity hockey game is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 9 from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at the Ladner Leisure Centre.

Downsizing made easy

Pro organizer to speak at local libraries Local libraries are hosting a free workshop that will teach the shortcuts to downsizing. Move forward with your life with Ranka Burzan, a professional organizer who specializes in decluttering, downsizing for seniors, residential organization and home maintenance. Don’t Agonize, Downsize! with Ranka Burzan will be held on Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Ladner Pioneer Library and on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the Tsawwassen Library. Both sessions run from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Burzan first shared her organizing tips with readers in the Surrey Now newspaper back in 2003.

Burzan first shared her organizing tips with readers in the Surrey Now newspaper back in 2003. Her article, Helpful Hints to Organize and Clean Your Home, was well received by readers. She followed that with

more articles in other local newspapers and magazines and has written a helpful little book, Kick the Clutter Get Organized. The overwhelming demand for her services and workshops prompted her to start her own business when most people are retiring or dreaming about being retired. She also started to offer workshops through libraries, Chapters and local school districts; giving people tips and tools on how to organize and maintain their homes, offices or classrooms.

Ladner Pioneer Library has book clubs for both kids and teens FILE PHOTO

Ladner artist Michael Abraham has a new exhibit at Gallery Jones in Vancouver this month. “In this body of work Abraham returns to a more elemental subject matter, painting stories that read like fables for a visually sophisticated audience,” says the gallery’s Shane O’Brien. Titled Inspiritus, the show runs until Oct. 29 at 1725 West 3rd Ave.

Do you love to read and talk about books? The Ladner Pioneer Library offers book clubs for both kids and teens. If you are between ages nine and 12, register for the monthly Kids’ Book Club beginning Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The Simpson Brothers band was knocked off CBC’s Cover Me Canada last weekend. The Tsawwassen group, which includes 21-yearold twins Rich and Rob Simpson, performed Buffy Sainte Marie’s Up Where We Belong in week three of the competition. The show features groups performing covers of songs from Canadian artists in the hopes of winning a $100,000 cash prize, a recording contract for their first original single to be released by Universal Music Canada and featured airplay of the single on CBC Radio 2. “It was amazing to work with every single person on the cast - competitors, producers, staff, techs, judges, bandmates and the fans who smiled the whole way through and kept us smiling,” the group posted on its Facebook page. “We hope to keep your support and make it back on the wild card!”

Three super upper body exercises joint that are quite often weak. A. Lie face down on an incline bench, or over stability ball, and hold onto a pair of light dumbbells in each hand. Your arms should be hanging down with your palms facing your feet.

p.j. wren

Well on Your Way Switch things up a bit with these three exercises. 1. Stability Ball Push-up Plus The push-up is a great exercise to train the chest muscles, as well as a small muscle group under the armpit area called the serratus anterior. The serratus anterior muscle helps to move your shoulders. Weak serratus muscles put you at a high risk for shoulder impingement, a painful injury in which the tendons of the rotator cuff get impinged in the shoulder joint when elevating the arm. A weak serratus is also responsible for bad posture by causing the shoulder blades to tilt forward and down; giving you rounded shoulders and eventually a permanent slump of the mid-back. My version of the pushup recruits the serratus to its max by adding an extra push at the end of the pushup. Add a stability ball into the mix and voila, you are recruiting even more muscles into the exercise. A. Place your hands on a stability ball, fingertips pointed down to the floor, arms straight. Position your body in a long line, keeping the bum down and core engaged.

1C apart your shoulder blades. The movement is slight, and hard to see in the picture, but you will feel the difference. Perform 10 to 15 repetitions. 2. Row with External Rotation Rated by many fitness experts as the best exercise to do, this movement not only targets the upper back’s scapular muscles, it also hits the rotator cuff muscles, a group in the posterior cuff of the shoulder

2A B. Keeping your head still, pull both dumbbells up so your upper arms are parallel with the floor and the elbows are flared out.

3A 2B C. Rotate the weights upwards, until your palms face the floor. Pause and then reverse the whole exercise. Perform eight to 12 repetitions. 3. Thoracic Spine Mobility This exercise enhances the mobility of your upper back and is particularly good for all you deskjockeys out there who are slumped over a computer (or even a steering wheel) all day. I also use this

2C mobility drill as a way to warm the upper body up with my clients before their workout. A. Start on all fours, with your right hand behind your ear, your left arm directly below the left shoulder and knees apart and under the hips. B. Twisting from the mid-back only, bring the elbow of the right arm under the body. C. Reverse the movement

and lift the elbow as high up as you can. It is important that you are rotating from the mid-back on both parts of this movement, not from the hips or low back. The hips and lower spine should be squared to the ground and quiet throughout the exercise. Perform 15 to 20 on each side. PJ Wren is a local personal trainer and writer in the Delta area who can be reached at www.fitnesswithpj.com.

1A B. Keeping the core engaged, slowly lower yourself until your chest is almost hitting the ball, and then push yourself back up again.

1B C. At the top of the pushup, perform the “plus” part of the movement by pushing your upper back away from the ball and pulling

People who love using garlic in recipes but are shocked at its cost in winter need to know that growing their own cloves is very doable, even in a small space. Where flower gardens are the only option, a few plants of garlic fit right in because they deter aphids from infesting neighbouring plants. As well, garlic is completely hardy, slug-resistant and needs almost no watering because it makes most of its growth during our nine-month wet season. What it does demand is sun and well-drained, rich soil. Raised beds amended with compost or composted manure are a perfect garlicgrowing environment. October is the ideal month to plant this crop and bulb clusters will soon be available in local garden centres. Another useful source is farmers markets where varieties are grown close to home. If you buy garlic from food stores to use as sets you should be cautious. Some garlic bulb clusters may be treated with sprout inhibitors. Also stores may sell varieties from warm climates that are far less hardy than local garlic. There are three main kinds. The largest cloves come from hard-neck types such as Persian Star, Music or Red Russian. These throw up a stiff, bulbil-producing stalk. Soft-neck types such as Greek White or Chinese have smaller, extremely long-keeping cloves and braidable stalks. Then there’s serpent garlic, which has long stems that curl in circles at the top. Sometimes this is called Rocambole. Sometimes first-time gardeners are unsure how to plant garlic. They should break the bulb clusters apart and plant individual cloves with the pointed end up two or three inches deep. Mulching with leaves or perhaps grass clippings keeps the soil moist and

deters weeds. Because garlic needs to grow from October to about August, it doesn’t fit well into succession plantings. Also the garlic bed should be rotated. This means the old garlic area should have no garlic, shallot or onion crops in it for three years. This is hard to do in small space. An alternative is digging out the top layer of old soil and replacing with compost. The old soil could go into summer planter pots, fill low places in lawns or help raise a flower bed.

Sometimes first-time gardeners are unsure how to plant garlic. About June, garlic develops scapes. These look like flower buds with long points and they should be removed immediately while still very young. They are delicious sliced-up in a stirfry. If you leave them alone, your garlic cloves will be smaller. The long stems can be left to continue photosynthesis. In July when weather usually becomes very dry, the garlic bed can be left unwatered so the plants die down naturally. Leaves and stems go yellow, then brown and after a few weeks keel over. At this point, it’s time to dig up the cloves. Depending on the weather, these may be cured for a week in sun with a cover put over at night or just dried inside if the weather is showery. Soft-neck kinds can then be braided. Hard-neck kinds are impossible to braid. The stems, with cloves attached, should be tied together and hung in a dry, cool spot to be eaten as needed. Save the biggest cloves of your favourite kinds for planting next year. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

“I’ve said it before, and I’m still saying it - “I can’t wait for my next Pilates class!” I have come to know and love the friendly staff at TWC, and my fellow Pilates-mates, and regard them as “family”. The atmosphere there is one of genuine care and helpful support in many aspects of my health, fitness and wellbeing. When the stuff of everyday life trips up routine,TWC continues to meet me RIGHT where I am, not only in areas of flexibility for make-up classes, but in working through any stumbling blocks that happen along the way. Through the past 3 years at Tsawwassen Wellness Centre, I found a love of Pilates like NOTHING ELSE in the journey of “mid-life move it or lose it”. Challenged with knee/alignment issues, the no-pain-no-gain slant of weight-training, even under the direction of a personal trainer over the course of a year, only kept me in chronic knee pain; followed next by a futile attempt in a facility where the workout routine was far too cookie-cutter on circuit-training equipment, only had me right back into weeks of physio treatments for those knee/alignment issues. I soon discovered that Pilates is truly an extension to physio and worth every penny for my health. It’s focused and deep core work has given me back my

I can easily go weeks between sessions before the pain returns. I was the first client to use the sauna and I was truly a non believer I was yah whatever I have been in saunas before they do nothing more than sweat you... this was different the infrared heat really gets down into the muscle tissue and just loosens those knotted muscle good.” ~ M.C., Ladner

FIRE

PREVENTION

Fire safety starts at home

On average, fire kills eight people each week in Canada, with residential fires accounting for 73 per cent of these fatalities. A new national fire safety survey reveals that while a majority of Canadians

believe they are protected from fires in their homes, many are failing to implement two essential measures needed to maximize home fire safety. The annual Duracell Fire Safety Survey, con-

ducted in partnership with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC), reveals that 70 per cent of Canadians surveyed feel protected from fires. At the same time, however, about 40 per cent said they do not have a fire escape plan in place for their home, and 75 per cent said they have not practiced a home fire drill in the past year. Worse yet, the survey shows the number of people failing to practice a home fire drill had gone up when compared to the 73 per cent reported in the Duracell Fire Safety survey of a year earlier. With Oct. 9 to 15 marking Fire Prevention Week across Canada, Duracell and Canada’s fire chiefs are urging Canadians to be bet-

ter prepared for a home fire emergency. “The new survey seems to reflect a gap between fire safety expectations and reality, in terms of Canadians doing all they can to reduce the risk of a devastating tragedy,” said Len Garis, B.C.’s representative for the CAFC. “Having a fire escape plan in place — and practicing it at least once a year — is fundamental to maximizing home fire safety.” Another major element of home fire escape planning is making sure there are batteries in all of your home’s smoke alarms, and that they are changed at least once a year. Additionally, smoke alarms should be tested monthly and replaced every 10 years.

OCT. 9-15

WEEK Protect family from fire The theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week, which takes place from Oct. 9 to 15, is Protect Your Family From Fire. Fire Prevention Week is recognized every October during the full week — Sunday through Saturday — that Oct. 9 falls in. Despite the fact fewer fire losses are reported in Canada, still, on average, eight Canadians die from fire every week. Most of these fires are preventable and caused by careless behaviour. That is why it is critical to educate Canadians and incite them to act. During this week, fire departments across the nation will promote public awareness of the dangers of fire and the ways we can protect ourselves from fire. “This year’s theme underscores the importance of making Canadians aware of the simple preventative measures they can take to prevent disaster from occurring to them,” says Delta fire chief Dan Copeland. “Statistics reveal that most fires are caused by careless behaviour. An ounce of prevention in this case will save lives, homes and everything that we hold dear. It is the responsibility of every Canadian to educate themselves on the simple fire prevention measures they can take.” The Delta fire department is hosting an open house at the Ladner fire hall this Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will offer information on everything from fire safety in the home to firefighting as a career.

Early detection key with fires & cancer

extinguishers around the house, here are some additional tips for fire safety and prevention: • Make a fire escape plan for your family. Walk through exit paths and decide on a place to meet outside. • Store matches and lighters in a locked cabinet that children cannot access. • Always remain in the kitchen while cooking — don’t leave boiling pots or simmering food unattended. • Keep flammable materials at least three feet away from fires, candles and heaters. Now, for the first time, Canadians can make their homes safer and contribute to the fight against breast cancer. First Alert has developed a line of Canadian Breast Cancer Fire Safety products: two smoke alarms, a carbon monoxide alarm and a kitchen fire extinguisher. For each product sold, First Alert will donate $1 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. www.newscanada.com

SAFETY. PRIDE. PROFESSIONALISM.

Chief Tim Beckett, president of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, said there are some basic, yet necessary, steps Canadians must take to keep safe. “Smoke alarms are the easiest, most cost-efficient way to alert family members of a developing fire,” said Beckett. “With working smoke alarms on each level of the home, families increase the likeliness that a fire will be detected and that the family will be alerted of hazardous smoke and flames.” Beckett recommends alarms are installed inside or near each bedroom. The number one complaint about smoke alarms is that it can be difficult to change the battery, so purchase one that has an easy access battery door so it never has to be removed from the ceiling. Fire extinguishers are another essential tool to fight small fires before they spread out of control. Along with placing smoke alarms and fire

This fall is all about early detection for Canadians. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but did you know that October is also Fire Safety Awareness Month? Both fire and breast cancer are killers. And for both, early detection is key. In a special collaboration, First Alert has teamed up with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to spread this important message. “Whether it be a middleof-the-night fire alarm or a routine mammogram, First Alert and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation know that early detection saves lives,” said Jim Rotz, president of First Alert. According to Fire Prevention Canada, eight Canadians die every week from fires, with residential fires accounting for 73 per cent of these fatalities. Sadly, many of these deaths could have been prevented with proper placement and maintenance of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers.

• Always keep a lid nearby and slide it over the pot to smother the flames. Turn off the burner. Do not move the pan until it is cool. Never pour water on a grease fire. It will cause it to flare up and spread. Never discharge a multipurpose fire extinguisher onto a pan fire as they can cause a fire to spread. • If there is a fire in a microwave or oven, keep the door closed and turn the appliance off immediately. • If you are trained and decide to fight the fire with a fire extinguisher, be sure

approaching, you can do a lot to ensure you won’t get stranded. Follow these 10 winter-preparation tips to keep safer on the road and reduce your gas expenses: 1. Check your battery. Are your battery terminals covered in a crusty, white deposit? That corrosion can insulate the terminals and prevent your car from receiving its first boost of ignition-sparking power. Scrape away the deposits with a wire brush. And if your battery is getting old, replace it. 2. Don’t over idle your car. Your engine needs only 30 seconds of idling to warm up sufficiently in winter. By limiting your idling time to half a minute, you’ll not only reduce

If you break down at the side of the road in Canada, chances are pretty good you’ll get help from another motorist. According to a recent survey, about half of Canadians would stop to help a motorist in need. Another one-third of the population would decide whether to pull over depending on the motorist’s appearance (so it pays to spruce up a bit before you step out). The survey was conducted by Leger Marketing on behalf of Car Care Canada to help promote October as Car Safety Month. Why even take the chance you’ll need to rely on the goodwill of your fellow Canadians? With winter


A30 The Delta Optimist October 7, 2011 Car Care

All-season tires struggle in winter should be used on rear wheel, front wheel or four wheel drive vehicles. If you only have two, one end of your vehicle won’t react and perform the same as the other in the dry, wet, slush and snow conditions. To assist you in controlling your vehicle in winter conditions, always install your winter tires in sets of four only. As a tire wears, traction is reduced. Tires that are worn close to the tread wear indicators should not be used on snow-covered

TJ & SHIRLEY BROWN Optimist contributors

No one likes to get stuck in the snow (or the ditch) during the winter. Tires marked “M + S” (Mud and Snow), or “all season” tires that do not have the peaked mountain with snowflake symbol, may provide safe performance in most weather conditions, but are not designed for snow and ice-covered roads. Transport Canada recommends four winter tires

roads. At temperatures below 7°C, standard tires begin to lose elasticity, resulting in reduced traction. Winter tires retain their elasticity to grip at much lower tempertures. Wide, high-erformance tires, other than those specifically designed as winter tires, are not suitable for use on snow-covered roads. Inflation is also very important because the only connection between your car and the road are the tires — and the contact

patches are no bigger than the size of your hand! No matter what type of tread you have, the grooves in the tires can only push out so much water before they fill. In those instances when they can’t push out all the water, a scary driving condition called hydroplaning can occur. That’s when a layer of water forms between the tire and the road surface, causing the tires to lose contact with the road. The best way to avoid hydroplaning is to have suf-

ficient tread, the correct tire pressure and to slow your car as you approach large puddles so tire grooves have more time to do their work. When should winter tires be installed? Subscribe to the seven degree rule, which is simply once the temperatures hit seven degrees Celsius it’s time to install snow tires. At this temperature your all-season or summer tires don’t have the ability to grip, and braking is much more difficult. In colder temperatures the com-

pounds that all-season tires are made of start to harden up. If you rely on your verhicle no matter what the winter weather brings, have your tires checked now and budget for those snow tires. Don’t wait until the last minute (when everyone is in panic mode and all shops are so busy you can’t get an appointment) or you can’t find your size because the suppliers have run short. TJ and Shirley Brown are the owners of South Delta Motors.

• Check the tire tread depth and tire pressure. If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly. • Be diligent about changing the oil and filter every 5,000 kms. Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to a “winter weight”: oil if you live in a cold climate. Have your technician check the fuel, air and transmission filters at the same time.

• Make sure heaters, defrosters and wipers work properly. Consider winter wiper blades and use cold weather washer fluid. As a general rule, wiper blades should be replaced every 12 months.

• Clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system. As a general rule of thumb, this should be done every two years.

• Have the brakes checked. This braking system is the vehicles most important safety item.

GLENN COOPER News Canada

While buckling seatbelts is second nature when getting into a car, how many of us think to adjust the headrest? Reports show that headrests are one of the most overlooked safety features in motor vehicles today and many don’t realize the important role they play in preventing neck, brain and spinal cord related injuries. “Headrests are designed to work alongside the seatbelt so that when an accident occurs it prevents the head from twisting backwards, which subsequently results in whiplash,” explains Mauro Convertini, an insurance and claims expert at Aviva Canada. “Drivers can sustain an injury from an incorrectly adjusted headrest even at speeds as low as 15 kilometres per hour — the same speed as the average bicycle.” According to an Insurance Bureau of Canada study, only 14 per cent of drivers on the road have

their headrest in the proper position. And whiplash being the most common soft tissue injury incurred during auto collisions underlines the importance for all passengers to ensure their headrest is adjusted properly. Convertini recommends Canadian drivers follow three simple steps in order to prevent injuries associated with improper headrest position: 1. The top of the headrest should be in a straight line with the top of your head. 2. Position the centre of your headrest so it is slightly above the top of the ear. 3. Ensure the distance between the headrest and the back of the head is between five and 10 centimetres. An important message for local families with multiple drivers: The next time you get in your vehicle, remember to use your brain and adjust your headrest to the correct level. More information is available from your insurance broker or online at avivacanada.com.

If your car heater packs it in this winter, you’ll have to entomb yourself in extra clothing and blankets to keep even partially warm. Then you’ll have to hope your chattering teeth don’t dislodge your dental fillings. You’re far better off to avoid car-heater problems in the first place, says Car Care Canada. Your best precaution is to recognize the symptoms that could signify pending car-heater trouble: • Do you hear a chirping or screeching sound when you turn on your car heater? This noise suggests a worn fan-motor bearing. Motor failure will quickly follow. • Is your dashboard heater-control lever unusually stiff? This stiffness could be a sign of a sticky or inoperative heater-control valve. • Does moisture accumulate inside your car, even with the defroster running?

If so, your car’s heater core - a miniature radiator - may be leaking. • Does your heating system operate inefficiently? Heater and defroster duct hoses carry fresh air into the system and warmed air to locations beyond the heater core. If these duct hoses leak, your heater won’t efficiently warm your car or defrost your windows. • Does your heater blow only cold air? A leaking heater hose (which carries your system’s antifreeze) could be the culprit, and this problem could strand you at the side of the road. A properly functioning car heater will keep you comfortable and your windows clear, both keys to safe driving. So, be alert to potential heating problems, and get them fixed before they leave you shivering in the cold.

Victories coming too easy for Ice Hawks

Junior hockey team has outscored its opponents 28-8 en route to five straight wins while Richmond Sockeyes are also rolling BY

MARK BOOTH

mbooth@delta-optimist.com

It was hardly a stretch to suggest the Richmond Sockeyes and the Delta Ice Hawks were the teams to beat in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League this season but few would have guessed just how dominant they would be.

er, Delta has dominated its opponents, outscoring them 28-8. The defending champion Sockeyes are off to an even more impressive start, rolling to four consecutive shutout victories, including last Sunday’s 8-0 blasting of the Mission Icebreakers. They outshot the hosts 60-16. While both clubs should

Spencer Traher is congratulated after his third period goal in Tuesday’s 5-0 win over the North Delta Devils. The Ice Hawks’ veteran loaded line-up is off to a fast start out of the gate, with five wins in six games, including Tuesday’s 5-0 triumph over the North Delta Devils at the Ladner Leisure Centre. After being surprised 4-2 by the Port Moody Black Panthers in its season open-

be commended for the talent they have assembled, the current lack of competitive balance is hardly healthy for the league’s best interest. “I think there are a few issues going on,” said Ice Hawks head coach Dave McLellan. “Maybe some inexperience coaches and the people making player

selections as well. There are definitely two teams we have played that do not have junior calibre players on their rosters. “We are trying to figure out why. The disparity is just too great. It’s a little scary this kind of separation and it’s not good for the league. It makes it tough on everyone.” The Ice Hawks host North Vancouver on Tuesday then get their first crack at the Sockeyes two nights later in Richmond. The Sockeyes ended Delta’s season with a game seven series win in the conference finals a year ago. “It’s a game we are definitely looking forward to given the bitter pill we swallowed last year, continued McLellan. “They are the best team in the league and we will see how we match-up. With the graduation of last year’s scoring champion and league MVP Liam Harding, along with Kye Benjaminsen, the Ice Hawks needed a more balanced scoring attack to realize their expectations. Defenceman Alex Martin is setting the pace with 10 points in six games, while seven players have at least five points or more. Twentyyear-old local product Byron Maxwell, who was acquired in a pre-season trade with Mission, scored

The local product scored his team leading fifth goal of the season. his team leading fifth goal on Tuesday, playing on a line with standouts Spencer Traher and Cody Smith. “We are getting scoring right through the line-up and that should bode well for us in the long run,” added McLellan. “It was

a little bit of a hurdle for us in the playoffs last year when our first line got shutdown. I like the fact we are big and strong as well. I think we bring some toughness to our game this year and that was something we really wanted to add. Our

style this year is about playing tough and physical.” Kody Botterhill, John Proctor, Anthony Brito and Traher had the other goals Tuesday. Doug Birks turned aside 20 shots for his first shutout of the season.

Zibrik fires six under 65 to win Beach Grove Pro Am Beach Grove Golf Club’s annual Pro Am Championship produced more outstanding play as Dave Zibrik fired a six under 65 to take top honours. Zibrik’s impressive round earned him a first prize cheque of $1,100 and was good enough to hold off a quality field of 28 professionals that included runner-ups Bryn Perry and Matt Daniel, who joined Jeremy Paradis in a group at four under (66). Two shots further back were Andy Girling, Kyle German and Shingo Akizuki with 68s, while Cory RudstonBrown and Darryl Stubbs each shot even par 71s. In the team competition, pro Matt Mackinson and club members Wayne

Grayshon, Randy Volden and Grant Turner captured top honours with a 21 under 121 total. They held off Akizuki’s team (20 under) that included David Craig, Larry Kenmare and Keith Tough. Rounding out the top four, the team of Matt Daniel, Craig Van Poelgeest, Mike Smith, and Randy Debenham finished tied for third spot at 19 under, with the foursome of Craig Van Poelgeest, Mike Smith and Randy Debenham. Finishing fourth at 18 under were Segei Dronov, Peter Bexley, Jim Musselwhite and Jim Bremworth. Steve Knoblauch, from Ram Construction and also a member of Beach Grove, joined other sponsors in

making this year’s event a huge success. “Without the support of many sponsors, this Pro Am would not have been possible to execute such a successful day. The professionals and members appreciate the support of all sponsors who participated,” says Beach Grove Head Professional Brent Derrheim. Other tournament sponsors included: Richport Ford Lincoln (Grant Hanbury), Silver City Galvanizing (Doug Boychuk), Blakes Lawyers (Bill Maclagan), Boston Pizza (George Melville and Hank Van Poelgeest). Hole Sponsors included: Re/Max Tsawwassen (Lance Hughes), Bushnell Yardage Finders (Rick Soutar), Family Dentist (Brian Standerwick), Canaccord Capital (Bryan Claggett), Bex Holdings Ltd (Peter Bexley), Edwards Kenny and Bray LLP (Brian Mulholland), Property Development Group (David Coon).

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your domestic scene remains prominent. From 2010 to 2012 this area might seem a bit more burdensome or restrictive than usual. In reaction, you might either: 1) deepen and re-establish your marriage (or seek to “domesticate” someone, if you’re single) or 2) let domestic matters drive a wedge between you and your spouse. (The latter is not necessarily bad. Choose in your heart what is good or bad.) Sunday’s wise, loving. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday. Hopes rise, happiness reigns, Thursday/Friday! Retreat Saturday. Money flows swiftly to mid-November: bank it, or lose it. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Communicate, write, call, travel, complete paperwork and applications. Handle all the “busy stuff” now, as late October will bring a rest-and-relax period. Meet friends, read the paper – stay informed. Your sexual magnetism sizzles, so one of those friends (if you’re single) might flirt – and mean it. You’ll be handling the paperwork stage of a legal, far-travel, educational, publishing, cultural or similar project (especially Monday to Wednesday). Sunday’s for mystery, finances, intimacy. Be ambitious Thursday/Friday – luck awaits you! Saturday’s for wish fulfilment, friends, joy! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money, enjoy sensual moments. Sunday’s for relationships. Large finances, investments, debts, lifestyle changes, health concerns, intimacy and sexual urges, research, mysteries – these fill the Monday to Wednesday interval (and to some degree, they fill your private thoughts all month). Both obstacles and “lucky doorways” exist in these zones. The happier you are, the more accurately you’ll see your options. A gentle, wise, loving mood enters Wednesday eve through Friday. These days favour a legal, real estate, international or intellectual matter. Be ambitious Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on relationships. Your romantic sense/urge is strong. Be diplomatic, co-operative, and eager to merge – with a person, a group or a corporation. A small new note introduces a song of sex, financial manoeuvres, secrets or behind-scenes actions. Still, most events – and interactions – remain aboveboard. Lie low, rest and plan Sunday. Be spiritual. Your energy and charisma rise Monday to Wednesday, but expect some opposition if you insist on your way. Your money luck’s high Thursday/Friday, but deep down this might fight your real needs. Talk, travel Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Much work still faces you, for two more weeks. Don’t let work pressures make you temperamental on the home front. (If you succumb to the temptation to be grouchy, a real fight might ensue late this month and November.) Social delights, popularity and optimism buoy your spirits Sunday. But retreat, rest, contemplate and plan your future Monday to Wednesday: don’t compete. Your energy a nd charisma rise Wednesday night to Friday: tackle intimidating tasks, get big things done. Saturday’s great for shopping, earning. Remember, you’re in a grand, lucky, significant turnaround year. Gemini May 21-June 20: Romantic vibes continue. Your big love affair year is still nine months away, so don’t try to climb too high, too fast, in love zones – be happy, pleased! You’ll be gratified, alive, perceive unusual beauty – let your creative juices flow, let life’s beauty soothe you. Express yourself, gamble, step into a new world. Give authorities their due Sunday. Your wishes, popularity and joy grow Monday to Wednesday (but avoid work-related showdowns Monday). Retreat, rest, plan, be spiritual and deal with governments Thursday/Friday. (All these are 2011’s main luck zones.) Saturday, you succeed!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma, luck and effectiveness remain high, so start important projects, approach others, ask favours – demand growth in your life! Your popularity is high, your financial/investment luck remains strong, and your intimate urges can be fulfilled. A Gemini or Virgo might be involved. Realize it’s better, before June 2012, to be satisfied with sex, than to seek life-mate type marriage. Wishes about relocation, litigation and general opportunities will come true. MondayWednesday accents relationships. Depths, finances, sex Thursday/Friday. Love, wisdom Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan. A sweet mood imbues you now to month’s end. By late October opportunities will return. Expend effort in one sphere, though: career and employment. Here, bosses, parents and VIPs can be critical until early November – more so if you slack off. Sunday brings beauty, pleasure. Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday. Relationships – your lucky area June 2011 to June 2012 (despite your complaints!) – come to the fore Wednesday eve through Friday. There’s luck here Thursday a.m., restrictions Thursday p.m. Mysteries intrigue Saturday – investigate. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Popularity, social delights, entertainment, wish fulfilment and optimism fill this week and next. Avoid lawsuits. Do pursue travel, international concerns, publishing, education, religion and cultural venues – these might be more work than usual this year, but they’re succeeding, and you’re energized about them now. Take a deep, quiet rest Sunday. Your romantic, creative side bursts forth Monday-Wednesday – many serious subjects accompany passion this year, as Tuesday night shows. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday, especially in the areas listed in the second sentence.

Oct. 9 - 15, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The focus lies strongly on career, ambitions, prestige relations, community status, reputation and dealings with authorities. You could feel a tug-o-war between these and your security-homefamily needs Monday-Wednesday. You’re very intuitive about career and money now, so choose your path with confidence: whatever you decide will tend to be the right way. Romance, beauty, pleasure and creative surges visit you Thursday/Friday – don’t ignore these, as they hold 2011’s “fortune.” Tackle chores Saturday. All month, to early-mid November, sexual/financial matters intensify. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The general accent lies on understanding, compassion, culture, love, international affairs, far travel, higher education, publishing, statistics, science … Relationships remain intense until Nov. 10. Simultaneously you’re lucky in, and drawn to, real estate, a domestic situation, and the ending of a project or relationship. That intensity could lead to a significant parting or a major bonding – to know which, look at your present situation. As a result, by November, you’ll start 11 months of deep change, “intense sex” and fast-paced financial events. Real romance? Mid-2012. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The focus remains on hard work, health and finances. Your “value” is changing; so are your desires, lifestyle, and, perhaps, your investments. The structure of your life might change. Soon (November) a dramatic 11-month phase will occur in your most important relationships – it would be wise not to make an irrevocable commitment before you see how this phase affects you. Money, sensuality and possessions will be involved, and it’s intense! Your energy, charisma are high Sunday. Chase money Monday-Wednesday (last day best). Thursday/ Friday are chatty, travel-prone. Home, Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
