What a weekend! Air show, movie night and International Bog Day are all on the calendar

Looking for something to do this weekend? Well, you’re in luck as Delta’s always-busy summer festival season continues to roll along with offerings in all three communities. First up is the Boundary Bay Air Show, which returns to the Boundary Bay Airport in Ladner tomorrow after a one-year hiatus due to construction. The popular show features a long list of aerobatic demonstrations as well as static displays. Highlights include Red Bull Air Race pilot Pete McLeod, L29 jets flying in formation and a simulated air race with Harvards. The show is free. Gates open at 11 a.m. and the event gets underway at 1 p.m. Saturday night kicks off the Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen’s Outdoor Movie Night series at Diefenbaker Park. The iconic Matthew Broderick flick where he skips out of school (sorry, not allowed to reveal title) will be shown at dusk on a giant inflatable screen. Prior to the movie there will be a festival that includes all sorts of free activities, demonstrations, music and more. That gets underway at 6:30 p.m. If you’ve still got energy come Sunday morning, then head out to Jog for the Bog and International Bog Day, which take place back-to-back in North Delta. The run gets going at 9 a.m., while the festival, which will feature music, displays and bog tours, runs from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For details on all of the events, see pages 14 and 15

Passionate about hospital

Foundation’s new executive director impressed by support community has shown over years BY


To say Deltans are passionate about their hospital doesn’t begin to describe their commitment to their health care facility, says the Delta Hospital Foundation’s new executive director. Veronica Carroll recently took over the helm of the fundraising organization from Teresa Cooper. Well wishers and hospital supporters attended an open house at the Ladner facility Tuesday afternoon to thank Cooper for her seven years of hard work and wish Carroll good luck as the foundation embarks on new fundraising initiatives. “The vision of this community and for this hospital is what really drew me here,” Carroll told the Optimist. Carroll has almost 26 years of fundraising experience, including in health care, social services and recreation services. Most recently, she was CEO of the hospital foundation at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, where about $3 million was raised from the community for a new intensive care unit. “We’ve got big plans for Delta Hospital, so that’s where my background and expertise really comes into play. The community has been just so warm and welcoming,” Carroll said. Last year, Fraser Health launched a planning initiative aimed at determining what services the Ladner hospital should provide as well as what physical additions would be needed. The

going to happen at the hospital over the next few months,” she said. Carroll said she knows all about the bitter struggle the community endured a decade ago when major cutbacks were announced for the facility, and how the perseverance and persistence of supporters played a big role in seeing services restored and expanded. “I know about the passion the community has for the hospital and how loyal and supportive the donors have been. As a fundraiser, that’s exactly the type of environment that we really do best in. We know the community is committed and it is really very rewarding for the community to get involved as partners.” Meanwhile, Cooper is taking her talents to the Vancouver Aquarium where she has been hired as the director of annual giving.

Fund set up to help those displaced by fire 13 suites damaged by blaze at Tsawwassen apartment building that claimed one life BY


The community is being encouraged to continue helping out those who lost everything in an apartment building fire in Tsawwassen earlier this month. Delta fire crews were called to the 39-unit Tsawwassen Terrace apartment building in the 5500block of 16th Avenue just before 2 a.m. on Friday, July 13. A fire had started in an apartment on the second floor and quickly spread to adjoining units. One person died. Fire crews were able to

contain the fire to a few suites, however, 13 suites were damaged by either the fire or smoke and water. The building’s owner, Century Group, notes tenants in four suites lost all their belongings, for which the company hosted a shortterm drop-off centre for donations of furniture and household goods. All other tenants are in the process of removing their possessions from their suites over the next two weeks. Century Group says it has been able to relocate many tenants to other apartment buildings in its portfolio, and others have found

If members of the community would like to assist the residents with the costs of relocation and other hardships, Century Group says it highly encourages monetary donations. The company has established a trust account for all


financial donations at the Royal Bank’s Tsawwassen branch. Anyone in the community can donate to the fund directly, and no account number is needed. The fund is called “Victims of Tsawwassen Terrace Fire.” In addition, Shannon

Taylor at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall is promoting a fundraiser by selling reusable shopping bags for $5 each, available at Sublime Art Supplies & Gallery. All proceeds go to the fund. Delta police Const. Ciaran Feenan said the police investigation has wrapped up and foul play is not suspected. The cause of the fire is under investigation and the file has been turned of to the BC Coroners Service. The name of the victim, a male in his 40s, has not been released until next of kin have been notified.

Police issue warning after rash of daytime break-ins in Tsaw.

The Delta police are warning Tsawwassen residents about a recent rash of daytime residential break-ins. Const. Ciaran Feenan said in recent weeks police have noted an increase in break-andenters, which are largely happening between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. He said it appears a suspect is targeting homes when they are not occupied. The point of entry is rear or front doors, or windows on the ground level that have been left open or are insecure. It is believed the suspect often Const. forces Ciaran his way Feenan into the homes by prying the doors open, at which point rooms are rummaged through in search of jewelry, small electronics and silverware. Delta police are reminding all residents to ensure they are locking their doors when they leave their homes and are securing ground level windows. Residents are asked to be extra vigilant around their neighbourhoods and to call police immediately if they see anyone or anything suspicious. Police are also reminding residents that if they’re planning a vacation this summer, they should ask neighbours to keep an eye on their home or visit a community police station to arrange for a security check. Feenan said if you happen to fall victim to a break-and-enter, it’s important to contact police as soon as possible and to not disturb anything within the residence. This will allow for potential evidence gathering and effective canvassing of the area for possible suspects. He said police will continue to provide a greater presence in the area during the times these incidents are occurring.

No desire to change school calendar Victoria gives boards ability to alter schedule, but Delta won’t be doing so unless parents come asking for it BY


Delta’s public schools won’t change their instructional calendars unless parents and communities come forward with a request. New government legislation introduced this spring aims to eliminate the standard September-to-June school year. The Ministry of Education says Bill 36, the School Amendment Act 2012, enables boards of education and education authorities to offer more creative scheduling options to better meet the needs of students. The ministry will continue to set a minimum number of instructional hours. At the time, Education Minister George Abbott said changes wouldn’t occur for at least a couple of years and only if there’s a full engagement with all education partners. School boards already have the ability to adjust school calendars and a few districts have done so, introducing balanced calendars, also known as year-round schooling, at some schools. A balanced calendar provides the same number of instructional days as a tradi-

Delta classrooms will continue to sit empty during the summer unless parents request a change to the school calendar. tional calendar, but reduces the summer vacation and provides smaller, more frequent breaks. None of Delta’s public schools have broken from the traditional calendar as of yet. Board chair Dale Saip said the district has no plans to introduce any changes unless there’s a desire from parents. “I look at it and say, ‘Well, a lot of things have

changed in education over the last number of years but a lot of things haven’t,’” he said. “There’s different options out there that have been tried in different parts of the world and it’s about choices for parents and local communities. We’ve looked at it and we’ve got data, and the board has to have more discussion around it, but I don’t see the board moving there any time soon.

Certainly we have to be prepared if that’s what the community wants.” Delta Teachers’ Association president Paul Steer said the main concern for teachers is the quality of education and learning experience for students as a result of any school calendar change. “Parents and the public should first be concerned with why the change. What is the improvement or bene-


ficial results for the system of any proposed change? And if there isn’t one, then the question is why the change at all,” he said. “Doing away with the standard school calendar certainly opens up possibilities for families to have perhaps a child in one school on one calendar and a different child in another school on a different calendar. It could create a lot of headaches for parents as far

as scheduling. In general, a certain stability in the system is supported by having certain reliable patterns from year-to-year,” he said. Steer noted the more important thing for students is a well-funded and stable educational experience. CUPE BC, representing 26,000 support staff in K-12 schools, has already come out against the legislation, saying, among other things, changes would place added burdens on families already having problems getting childcare. In 2005, in a cost-saving measure, Delta’s public schools began a new holiday structure in which they closed down for five days immediately following spring break. The district also changed the daily schedule by shaving off eight minutes during the lunch break and adding those minutes as instructional time. The extra instructional time is supposed to add up to the equivalent of five days. The district’s calendar committee had previously examined the possibility of a balanced calendar, but rejected that idea, as well as the possibility of a four-day school week.

Year-round schooling idea introduced, then shelved, 40 years ago Four decades ago the Delta school board seriously toyed with the idea of year-round schooling. In 1972, during a time of tremendous population growth that put significant pressure on the school district, board officials arranged meetings with parents at Hellings and Cliff Drive elementary schools to

see if they were willing to take part in a pilot program. At the time, the Optimist reported parents had expressed slightly more than 50 per cent support for a continuous school operation in an informal questionnaire. Delta principals, trustees and board officials went to Missouri and Illinois to see how a year-

round program was working in those states. If Delta had taken part, the district would have been the first in Canada to experiment with a year-round elementary school calendar. To begin in September of 1973, children would have attended school in a system of 45 days of instruction followed by 15 days

holiday, thus eliminating the traditional summer break. The plan was seen as a way to help Delta, the fastest growing municipality in the country, maintain standards without going to ratepayers to build more schools. Miles Adam, secretary treasurer of the school district at the time, said the

program would have saved taxpayers $47 million in capital costs over a 20-yearperod, when the municipality’s population was projected to reach 157,000. Although there was some initial support, opposition to the idea grew and it was eventually shelved. The concept of an altered calendar has been discussed

at other times as well. In 1993, a quarter-year timetable was floated for Delta Secondary. It involved students taking two courses daily, for two-and-halfhours each, for nine weeks. More than 200 concerned parents packed Genesis Theatre to voice opposition and the idea was soon dropped.

Civic politicians are on board with proposed changes to federal election boundaries that would reestablish Delta as a single riding. “Delta is Delta and it should be a federal riding as Delta,” said Coun. Bruce McDonald. Canada’s electoral districts are reviewed every 10 years by independent commissions in each province and changes are made based on population numbers and other factors. After a population increase of close to 500,000 in the last 10 years, B.C. is in line for six new electoral districts and the change means Delta’s northern and southern communities could be brought together as one riding. Currently, Ladner and Tsawwassen are part of Delta-Richmond East while the rest of the community is represented under the Newton-North Delta riding. “North Delta, in my humble opinion, has very little to do with Newton,” said Mayor Lois Jackson, adding she feels the federal and provincial political divides have harmed the sense of harmony the municipality is trying to foster between the three communities. McDonald echoed the comment. “I think tearing Delta apart was a factor in the difficulties we’re having in trying to unite the three communities,” he said. Delta was its own constituency for one term in the late 1980s and early


Delta could become its own federal riding for the first time in 20 years if proposed changes to the electoral map are approved. ‘90s when Dr. Stan Wilbee was the Tory MP. If the proposed changes are approved, Delta would become its own riding while Richmond would be divided into Richmond East and Richmond West, and Surrey’s four ridings would be reconfigured into five. The Corporation of Delta would like to see one change to the proposed new boundaries — the addition of Annacis Island to the Delta riding. Under the current proposal, Annacis Island has been included with Richmond East. “For consistency, it is important to ensure that Annacis Island is included in the Delta riding — it forms a significant part of the municipality, particularly in terms of the industrial tax base,” Sean McGill, Delta’s director of human

resources and corporate planning, stated in a report to council. The commission is holding a series of public meetings this fall on the new federal electoral boundaries. Residents are invited to share their views on the proposed changes. The municipality is planning on making a presentation to the commission in support of the change and requesting that Annacis Island be added to the Delta riding. A meeting is scheduled for Sept. 13 at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn at 7 p.m. Anyone wishing to make a presentation at the meeting must send the commission a notice no later than Aug. 30.

Hwy. 10 closed to traffic for hours after head-on crash sends three to hospital

A three-vehicle collision in the 11900-block of Highway 10 Wednesday morning sent three people to hospital and forced diversion of traffic for several hours. As a result of the collision, which took place

around 7:20 a.m., three people were taken to local hospital, two with serious but non-life threatening injuries, and another with minor injuries. Delta police Const. Ciaran Feenan said it is believed a vehicle traveling

eastbound on Highway 10 crossed the centre line and struck a westbound vehicle head-on. Police redirected traffic to alternate routes for several hours to allow collision analysts to investigate the incident.

Plan limits building height in area to three storeys

Last Friday’s article on Delta council’s approval of the Century Group’s Northgate project on 56th Street reported that under the Official Community

Plan, a maximum of four storeys is permitted in the area. In fact, the maximum is three storeys. The Tsawwassen Area Plan permits a maximum

of six storeys in the town centre and four storeys in a transition area north of the town centre. The subject site did not fall within those areas.

Former RCMP officer is to be sentenced today Monty Robinson convicted of obstruction of justice for his actions following fatal crash in Tsawwassen Former RCMP officer Benjamin “Monty” Robinson is scheduled to be sentenced in B.C. Supreme Court this morning. Robinson was convicted earlier this year of obstruction of justice as a result of his actions following an Oct. 25, 2008 crash in Tsawwassen that killed 21year-old motorcyclist Orion Hutchinson. Hutchinson died after a collision between his motorcycle and Robinson’s Jeep at about 10:15 p.m. at the corner of 6th Avenue and Gilchrist Drive. Robinson, who was off duty at the time, left the scene with his children, leaving his driver’s licence with a bystander. The 42year-old walked to his home a couple of blocks away, where he said he had a couple of shot of vodka, before returning to the scene. Delta police recommended Robinson be charged with impaired driving causing death in the high-profile

case, but the Crown decided not to proceed with that charge.

MURPHY’S LAW Do you get the feeling sometimes that our two arms of local government are operating like two left feet? Last year Delta responded to the need for a second artificial turf field in Ladner by embarking on a process that culminated with the creation of the Ladner Sport Field Enhancement Plan. The big ticket item in that document is a synthetic pitch for Dugald Morrison Park, the one across the street from Delta Hospital. There was a move afoot, one that got support from this corner, to have that turf field located at Delta Secondary instead. The reasoning behind that effort was that placing it at Ladner’s only high school would ensure the field is used throughout the day rather than having it sit idle for stretches at a municipal park. Delta officials didn’t bite, citing space restrictions among other concerns, and because it’s paying the vast majority of the tab on this one, Ladner’s next artificial turf field will be situated at Dugald Morrison. Now, however, we’ve got the school district pitching the idea of building covered turf fields on school properties. These would be miniaturized versions of a typical artificial turf field, complete with a roof and boards, that would cost in the neighbourhood of $1 million each. They’re decidedly different from your typical turf field — less space, but protected from the elements — however they would, for the most part, serve the same constituency. And that’s where I see the need for some collaboration. There’s nothing stopping Delta from building its own field and the school district from finding partners to make its covered facilities a reality too. If they both come to pass, local sports groups would be in far better shape than they are today. Yet wouldn’t it make sense for the two arms of government to get together to at least explore the possibility of meeting their goals in a consolidated fashion? Who knows, it just might save taxpayers, and user groups, some cash. I’m far from an engineer, but I suspect there’s got to be some way to cover all, or at least a portion, of a turf field to meet both objectives. Even if that were possible, perhaps location, in Ladner or elsewhere, would still prove to be a sticking point. Or maybe one additional facility, either municipal or school district, isn’t enough and a community needs both. I’m not sure if there are hurdles out there that can’t be cleared, but I’m certain that if both arms of government continue to work in isolation, we’ll never find out.

Time to get funky if we want to sell tourists on this place MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT I, too, plan to comment on tourism in Delta. I just got back from a week of camping in Point Roberts. Once you cross the border, it really does feel like you are on a Gulf Island. As usual, our experience at Lighthouse Park was memorable. The staff is polite and efficient and the park itself is a wonderful place for the kids to fish for bullheads and enjoy the spectacular waterfront. And, you can burn wood in fire pits! There are a number of funky galleries and restaurants and Lily Point Park is about as spectacular of a hike and picnic spot that you will ever find, especially at low tide. The Marketplace is a destination in itself and has an enticing array of food and beverage items you just don’t see in Canada. The place was packed every day we were

there. Point Roberts has an accidental tourism strategy. It doesn’t work overly hard at it but it brings in the bodies, gas pricing not withstanding. I took a look at the tourism strategy report on the Corporation of Delta website. At 185 pages, it is certainly thorough enough but reads like a calculus textbook. Lots of terms, strategies, tables and goals, but not a whole lot of meat on the bone for me. Maybe a simpler way of identifying opportunity would be to put your sales hat on and I think this is what Coun. Sylvia Bishop was trying to say a couple of weeks back. If you were to set up a booth in a shopping mall in Victoria or Seattle to sell Delta, what would your brochures look like and what would your sales pitch be? Out of the shoot I can see talking about Ladner, its riverfront heritage, its quaint streets and riverside restaurants. Westham Island is a real treat in the spring and summer and the Reifel Bird Sanctuary is a no-brainer tourism stop. In North Delta, a drive up Scott Road or along Nordel Way does not say funky, it says something else. Burns Bog is in North Delta but it isn’t really accessible, except for the Delta Nature Reserve.

Watershed Park is a great place to walk your dog. Tsawwassen is brimming with potential. Our climate, Boundary Bay Regional Park and Centennial Beach and its warm waters are truly impressive assets. A few years back we were finally granted our right in Canada to access the western shores of our peninsula. Other than that, Tsawwassen is essentially a residential area, just like North Delta. Our shopping core is barely adequate but not likely a destination goal for a Seattle tourist. I am hoping that at long last, a community on the Southlands will be approved so access to Boundary Bay can be enjoyed more readily by other neighbourhoods in Tsawwassen. I am hoping that a vital market square would give our community a sense of identity that it could use to promote new ideas in tourism strategies revolving around urban agriculture and livework small-scale economies. To me, this type of community in proximity to an outstanding waterfront environment would be a benefit to all who live here and for those who view Tsawwassen only as a place they drive through on the way to the ferry or to get gas. Time to funkify.

July 27, 2012 The Delta Optimist A11 Letters to the Editor

One crash brings community to standstill

Editor: Well, what a fine mess we have here! Courtesy of a truck once again spilling its load, Highway 17 was closed for several hours southbound on Monday. Traffic headed south on this route was rerouted through Ladner, a community that many of the ferry-bound travellers are totally unfamiliar with. This caused major traffic issues throughout Ladner as the affected traffic fumbled through the unanticipated and unmarked detour. Then we had Highway

17 northbound, which was nothing more than a parking lot. Traffic headed northbound was backed up past 28th Avenue. The traffic in that lineup sat for hours trying to get to the only exit between Tsawwassen and Ladner, which, thanks to the brain trust that removed the exit at 28th Avenue, is Ladner Trunk Road. How good does the idea of removing the only opportunity to exit the highway between Tsawwassen and Ladner look now? Pretty smart to take it out and replace it with a private, gated, “farmer use” only

Too noisy to sit on patio

Editor: When I retired last year I moved to Ladner because I felt it was peaceful, friendly community. This has proved to be true. I’ve met tons of great new people, started volunteering for the Delta Hospital Auxiliary and am thoroughly enjoying the area except for one loud problem. Living close to the fire hall I’ve become immune to the sirens, but shortly after I moved in, a “rock star” moved in next door. Repeated calls to the bylaw office have proved to be of no assistance since their response has only been “talk to them about the noise level.” There have been several conversations about the volume level — met with negative responses — the most memorable of which has been, and I quote, “As long as it’s daylight, I can be as loud as I want.” I find this statement to be grossly unfair to anyone living in the neighbourhood and I’m fairly certain it’s not accurate. I recently wrote a letter to the mother of said “rock star” asking, pleading, begging for the volume to be turned down. I even included $20 to buy headphones for her drummer son.

In my letter I explained I had spent a fair bit of time, effort and money to create a backyard patio that I wanted to be able to enjoy and that the volume, which rattles my living room windows, also made it practically impossible to even comfortably open the windows to get a breeze through the house in the hot weather. The mother did return the money (thank you if you’re reading this) but her response to the request for a reduction in volume was to advise, and again I’m quoting, “He only plays two times a week, sometimes three. So there are four or five days for patio enjoyment.” How generous to give me permission to enjoy my own home and patio. It’s not the music I’m objecting to, it’s the volume of the music. I am a little worried about retaliation for writing this but I’m already the bad guy for complaining verbally and recently in writing about this ongoing noise problem so I don’t see, at least not yet, how it could get any worse. Is it unreasonable of me to expect to be able to enjoy my patio and my home on my schedule and not someone else’s? D.S. Galvin

Soccer players get Save-On support

Editor: The Ladner U14 Pumas soccer team would like to extend its sincere gratitude to Save-On-Foods for its generosity in providing the opportunity to hold a Spin the Wheel fundraiser last weekend. Thank you to Ryan for accommodating our requests, to Terry for making his fantastic announcements and to all the other employees who helped us out. We would also like to thank the community for supporting our girls over the weekend. Thank you Save-On-Foods and Ladner. Christine Bramwell

Highway 17 was blocked in both directions Monday. overpass. How many of our tax dollars funded that little pet project to benefit such a small number of people while literally inconveniencing thousands Monday alone?


This is a perfect example of the poor planning that residents have come to expect for dealing with traffic here in South Delta. And yet it appears our mayor and council still insist on trying to bend over back-

wards to add thousands of cars and people into the mix by continuing to consider and reconsider housing development proposals for the Southlands, despite residents repeatedly pointing out this obvious problem. They also know the Tsawwassen First Nation is already going to add significantly to the number of vehicles trying to travel this route daily. What a perfect example of bureaucratic incompetence. No doubt fingers will be pointed in the days to come at everything from unprofessional driving behaviour

in the trucking community to municipal/provincial/ federal decisions that have caused the highway problems, but the real problem is simply numbers. An accident like this should not shut down an entire community, but it did. It makes me wonder what will happen if a true disaster occurs because we are once again proving that South Delta is woefully unprepared to deal with anything out of the ordinary and still remain as a functioning community. How very pathetic! Patricia Moore

Leadership required to capitalize on abundant eco-tourism opportunities

Editor: Re: Cashing in on tourists isn’t easy, Murphy’s Law, July 20 Delta might be in a “better position to capitalize” on bird watching and other wildlife-viewing tourists if community leaders understood the activities and requirements of this sector. Financial benefits are already accruing from ecotourism, although much more could be done. The Coast Tsawwassen Inn, for example, has benefited from a number of events for naturalists and birdwatchers, including the general meeting of B.C. Nature last fall. The snowy owls on Boundary Bay drew thousands of visitors, some from as far away as Japan. Owls, eagles, whales and shorebirds are wildlife that could particularly attract tourists.

Accommodation and food are two consistent requirements of traveling birdwatchers. Additional benefits to commercial interests depend on destination marketing, the worldwide dissemination of relevant information about our community to suitable audiences and a reliable, attractive “product” in the form of excellent habitats, abundant birds and/or other wildlife, accessible viewing points and trails, local guides, an absence of incompatible uses at key sites and a strong nature interest in the community. It is not just about Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. While an excellent spot for visitors, there are many more bird watching places around Delta than that. Many small towns in North America and elsewhere attract ecotourists, so exam-

ples of successful strategies abound. It is too early to dismiss the idea. Delta has not gathered any data that would inform an action plan. In contrast to Washington state where a recent study showed the huge benefit to the economy from ecotourism, there has been no B.C. or recent Canadian study on this subject. Nor have the business community or governments consulted with birdwatchers and wildlife viewers likely to know more about the subject, despite suggestions from the conservation community for the last 20 years. In 1992, Delta was one of 22 agencies to endorse Ours to Preserve, a report published by the Boundary Bay Conservation Committee, which included a section on the economics of ecotourism; however, the corre-

sponding recommendation was not implemented. Peter Davidson of Bird Studies Canada and I presented to the Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee on this topic, but our suggestions were more or less ignored. As the writer of two guidebooks to local nature destinations, I also presented to the Mayor’s Summit, as did Richard Kunz and Dana Maslovat. Again, ideas on ecotourism were not picked up. It will take major leadership for Delta and the business community to recognize what many of her citizens do: that we are the stewards of an incredible nature-rich part of the world, well worthy of civic pride. I hope that leadership is forthcoming. Anne Murray

Civic tourism strategy not being followed Editor: The recent exchange of commentary on tourism in Delta has been fascinating to read. The mayor’s letter regarding Delta’s tourism investment suggests to me that Lois Jackson is an “empress with no clothes.” The mayor doesn’t believe she’s “naked” on the tourism issue because the municipality has a tourism strategy and it’s “supported” tourism by granting funds each year to the Delta Chamber of Commerce. In reality, if you read the recommendations contained in the Delta Tourism Strategy it would appear

the mayor has chosen not to follow most of them. The mayor’s reference to funding the operation of a tourism information centre doesn’t even appear as a core initiative in the strategy document. Perhaps the mayor can use her valuable time to give her constituents a more relevant status update on the array of recommendations found in the tourism strategy. Some of the more important ones include: hiring a qualified tourism program manager; preparing a tourism marketing plan; collaborating with B.C. Ferries and relevant destination management organiza-

tions; developing programs around farm tours; developing cycling routes. Have any of the recommendations been adopted? The tourism opportunities that abound in Delta are actually quite impressive — a reality I have personally confirmed with the former CEO of Tourism BC after extensive discussions in 2011. However, to leverage them takes more than operating a tourism information centre. It requires a coordinated implementation plan as proposed in the tourism strategy. It makes me wonder how much of our tax dollars have been wasted to date,

both on the tourism strategy process and on a prehistoric marketing tactic. For those who doubt the viability of tourism in Delta consider the global economic contribution of tourism ($6.3 trillion, nine per cent of global GDP and 255 million jobs in 2011) or B.C.’s tourism revenues of over $13 billion. Such large numbers indicate there is significant opportunity to gain a small slice of the tourism pie, as confirmed in the tourism strategy, which would be much more palatable than industrial and commercial development of our farmland.

Covered in Love Facebook group runs Mommy Makeover contest

A local mom is launching a “Mommy Makeover” contest. Tsawwassen’s Andrea Delf says she’s running the contest through her Facebook page, Covered in Love, and plans to offer it every six months. The winner gets a manicure, pedicure and makeup application from Spa Time in Tsawwassen, a meal of their choice from White Spot delivered while they’re

at the spa, and then a haircut, colour and styling from Salon 56. Delf says she knows it can be hard for some moms to get out and find the time to pamper themselves while it can be financially tough as well. Entries, which can be e-mailed to Delf at, should explain why the entrant or a mom they know should be pampered for a

day. She’s set a deadline for entries of Friday, Aug. 3 at 5 p.m. Her Facebook page, started earlier this year, is geared towards connecting moms and families in need with people who have baby and toddler gear they don’t need anymore. For more, search Covered in Love in “Groups” on Facebook and request to join the page.

It’s outdoor movie time Tsawwassen BIA’s series starts with Matthew Broderick classic


he Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen kicks off its fifth annual Outdoor Movie Night series tomorrow at Diefenbaker Park. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. with a pre-movie festival with lots of free activities, demonstrations, music and food plus the iconic Matthew Broderick 1986 movie of his day off from high school featured at dusk. “Even if you have kids that are a bit young for this movie, bring them for a great community festival before the film presentation begins,” says Ana Arciniega, BIA executive director. “It is free and it is a lot of fun. Our presenting sponsors invite children to play at their three giant inflatable toys. We will also have ice blocking, games and crafts, a concert in the park featuring Terra Nova Bay and face painting to name a few of the activi-


The popular annual Outdoor Movie Night series starts tomorrow at Diefenbaker Park in Tsawwassen.

ties.” Terra Nova Bay is a Tsawwassen-based band that was formed two years ago. Originally a threemember group, the band has grown to a six-piece unit. The band, influenced by both Vancouver’s growing indie rock scene and a mix

of members’ own personal favourite groups growing up, has developed its own sound that fits into the wide rock spectrum. Their performance is part of Delta Parks Recreation & Culture’s free annual summer Concerts in the Park series. The first of three movie

nights is presented by Randy’s Tirecraft & Auto Service and Tsawwassen Collision. Those heading out to the movie night can bring a picnic from any of the many fine restaurants and coffee shops in Tsawwassen or visit the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen concession

and popcorn tent at the park with hotdogs, beverages and candy available for purchase. Also Stone Cold Creamery, McDonald’s, Freshslice and the Tim Hortons Community Cruiser will be at the park. “This year, proceeds from popcorn and concession sales from all three movie nights will benefit one local group: The Rivers End Rangers, the senior branch of the Ladner/ Tsawwassen Girl Guides,” explains Arciniega. This group of Rangers started Guiding 12 years ago and has completed many community service projects. They will be working with the set up, event day activities and clean up during the movie nights. “They are currently raising funds to further their leadership training skills so we are happy to partner with them in these community events to help them achieve their goal,” says Arciniega. The movie begins

at dusk, which will be approximately 9:30 p.m. The movie is rated PG and there is some course language. Parental discretion is advised. It’s recommended that moviegoers bring their own chairs and blankets. The next movie nights are Saturday, Aug. 11 at Diefenbaker Park in combination with the Queen Diamond Jubilee Celebration and Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. The Aug. 11 show is the Disney animated classic about the adventures of a young lion who becomes king while the Aug. 25 flick features Ben Stiller starring as the guard who needs to battle museum creatures that come to life every night. For a complete list of pre-movie festival activities and for updates in case of bad weather conditions, check the BIA website at or its Facebook page.

Comic hopes to become ‘People’s Champ’ BY


Tsawwassen comic Billy Mitchell is taking part in what’s being billed as what could be “the greatest comedy competition the city of Vancouver has ever known.” The People’s Champ of Comedy includes some “pretty stiff competition,” Mitchell notes, adding there are over 60 comics involved while the contest attracted

over 200 submissions. Broken down into four weeks of preliminaries, two weeks of semi-finals and a final set for next month at the Edgewater Casino, the contest features a $20,000 first prize.

Bog Day & jog set for Sunday


The Boundary Bay Air Show returns tomorrow after not taking place in 2011. The event features aerial displays as well as activities on the ground.

Air show ready for take off The Boundary Bay Air Show takes flight tomorrow. The free event didn’t take place last year due to construction of the nearby 80th Street overpass. “I would think so given we’ve had a two-year break,” said Boundary Bay Airport manager Lyle Soetaert when asked if he thought there could be increased interest in the show this time around

because of the hiatus. “Generally we’ve had really good attendance at the air show. I think that this year, weather permitting, we should have a fantastic turnout.” The show’s lineup features Red Bull Air Race pilot Pete McLeod, L29 jets flying in formation, a simulated air race with Harvards, the Pacific Skydivers, Alpha Aviation’s

Fred Kaiser in a CJ2 corporate jet, and a Skyraider and P51 Mustang from the Heritage Flight Museum in Bellingham. There will be displays on the ground as well, including some amphibian aircraft, a corporate display and a series of smaller aircraft. Gates open at 11 a.m. while the air show begins at 1 p.m.

Your goal weight could just be a good night’s sleep away. That’s what a group of Finnish researchers have found ( in a seven-year study of 7,022 middle-aged people. What qualifies as a good night’s sleep? Apparently, anything seven hours long or more. Sleep any less, and you could experience the same 11-pound weight gain the Finnish researchers saw in their participants. In another study, at the University of Lübeck in Germany, researchers found the less sleep the subjects had, the less calories their bodies burned. It seems that when we are robbed of sleep, our bodies do not run at the same metabolism as when rested. The study’s participant’s energy expenditure was five per cent less when sleep-deprived compared to a rested night’s sleep, and post-meal energy expenditure was a whooping 20 per cent less. What does this mean? Less sleep makes you a poor fat-burning machine! When shut-eye is lacking, you also tend to snack more – and not on cucumbers and carrot sticks either. The body craves foods high in

carbohydrates, those same bad carbs we have been told to drop. At the American Heart Association’s 2011 Scientific Sessions, it was shown that women who got only four hours of sleep at night ate, on average, 329 calories more than they did after they slept nine hours, and men ate 263 calories more. Multiply that by a year and you are looking at more than a 30-pound weight gain.

In another study, at the University of Lübeck in Germany, researchers found the less sleep the subjects had, the less calories their bodies burned. Why does your body crave these sinful treats? It’s hormones, or in particular the hormones ghrelin and leptin. These are responsible for making us feel hungry and full – and they are both grossly affected when we don’t get enough sleep. Ghrelin is a hormone produced in the stomach whose function is to tell our brains when we are hungry. It stimulates our appetite, and to add insult to injury, it also favours fat on the body. And not just any kind of fat. It likes the fat viscerally and it likes it around our stomach region – both

of which are the most dangerous types of fat to have. Leptin, on the other hand, is a hormone produced by our white and brown adipose (fat) tissue. He’s the guy that tells our brains when we are full, when we are satisfied and to please put down the fork. In a sleep study in Wisconsin of more than 1,000 people, researchers found that people who got five hours of sleep a night had 15.5 per cent lower leptin levels and 14.9 per cent higher levels of ghrelin, compared with those who got eight hours of sleep. At the University of Chicago, it was discovered that restricting the sleep of 12 healthy young men to four hours a night lowered their leptin levels by 18 per cent, and the men rated themselves as having a 24 per cent increase in hunger. Experts also note that when we sleep two hours less a night it gives us two more hours a day to eat and snack. Something none of us need. As you can see, weight loss is a lot more than calories in versus calories out. For some people, finding their circadian rhythm again could be the key to successful weight loss.

Delta Hospital Auxiliary Lifeline

One Delta Hospital Auxiliary unit is working to help keep local seniors out of the hospital and in their own homes longer. The Lifeline Unit serves about 375 seniors and people with disabilities in Delta. Lifeline is a medical alert system that puts clients in touch with response associates in case of a medical emergency or fall 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The response associate will assess the situation and contact a neighbour, loved one or emergency services to help, and then follow up to confirm that help has arrived. Clients can choose from a pendant or wrist-style help button to wear around the house. When help is needed, the client just needs to push the button and help will be on the way. Lifeline also now offers AutoAlert, which can detect a fall and automatically place a call for help if the client is unable to push the button. “This is peace of mind for families,” says Ellen Johnston, Lifeline volunteer coordinator. Seniors and their families can have peace of mind knowing that help is just a click of their personal help button away. Ageless Adventure Tours formerly Mandate Tours

Exit also an entrance This photo was taken at the Irene Thomas Hospice Residence in Ladner. I have been spending more time there lately, learning from people who have received terminal diagnoses, learning from their families and from the staff. We all know we will “exit” one day, and yet when that diagnosis comes, it frames the reality that our days are numbered in a very particular way. The windows in the photo are framed by a cross. For me, this photo is a profound statement of faith, for it says that our journey continues even

though we die, through Jesus’ death and resurrection. In effect, it says, “Jesus has been there/ done that,” including the suffering and feeling alone. I read in Romans 5 of God’s great love for us, sending Jesus to die for us while we were still sinners. This offers hope in the form of three Rs: Restored to friendship with God; right standing with God; resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Remember that on the other side of the exit is an entrance.

Infiniti has done something similar with FX series and others are following the footsteps too. Built on its MDX utility platform, Acura created a sleek four-door coupe body that challenges traditional thinking of what’s a coupe, a sports sedan or a utility vehicle. Being based on a utility vehicle, the ZDX can easily handle the rough road trip to the cottage or any “off-the-beaten-path” destination. Yet, it also offers a sporty drive when unleashed on a paved road. Powering the ZDX is a responsive 300-horsepower, 3.7-litre VTEC V6 engine that’s mated to six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters at the steering wheel. Selecting the transmission’s “S” mode provides a more dynamic shift pattern and doubleshifts can be made with the paddles. The normal torque bias for Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system is to the rear wheels, which gives it a sportier handling feel. Up to 90 per cent of torque can instantly be transferred to the front wheels when needed. A torque-vectoring feature kicks in while cornering or accelerating and can re-direct up to 100 per cent of axle torque to either rear wheel, which further enhances the ZDX’s handling dynamics. Some changes have been incorporated for 2012, such as the Technology Package, which is now standard. This adds perforated Milano leather upholstery, a navigation system with voice recognition, eight-inch LED colour display, a rear-view camera, headlamp washers, a 10-speaker audio system,

dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth hands-free phone service and keyless access plus push-button ignition. Styling The unique styling of the ZDX was created by Acura’s Design Studio in California and based on original sketches by Michelle Christensen. The coupe-like appearance of the ZDX is pulled off by enlarging the front doors and concealing the rear door handles in the window frame. The styling lines are the sharpest of any Acura and a unique stamping process called “deep-draw” was necessary to fabricate the rear quarter panels. The upper cabin is tapered to the rear (from an overhead view) and the all-glass, sharply raked roof tops a curvaceous body with boldly flared fenders that give the back end a wide, muscular look. Acura’s signature “floating” grille is surrounded by a honeycomb-design air opening. Unfortunately, the access to back seats is extremely limited and going in-out of the rear may cost you a bump on your head. Handling Despite being a MDXbased car, the ZDX handles well, even better than the already acclaimed MDX itself. Slightly shaper, firmer and more “focused” than the MDX, the car tracks straight and brings decent road feel throughout the different driving range. The ZDX is a fairly heavy vehicle that weighs in at 2,007 kilograms (4,427 pounds) and comes with a superb and appropriately named Super Handling See ACURA page 26

All-Wheel Drive system. This allows the ZDX to almost magically find grip in treacherous corners and was most impressive in the extremely wet weather conditions experienced during my time at the wheel. The 3.7-litre V6 engine is a silky smooth power provider that has very good torque in the mid to upper end of its speed range. It can propel the ZDX to 100 km/h in about seven sec-

onds. On the down side, city fuel consumption numbers are on the high side and it likes premium fuel. Safety The ZDX achieved top five-star ratings in crash tests performed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a four-star rollover rating. An electronic stability system called Vehicle Stability Assist is standard and it also comes with airbag

rollover protection, hill start assist and active front seat head restraints. Interior The interior is sporty and luxurious, while retaining a unique look distinct from the MDX model. “Futuristic” comes to my mind. The instrument panel is completely blank until the ignition is switched on and then the electroluminescent gauges appear in an impressive choreographed display. A power-operated tilt and telescopic steering wheel is

another bit of standard luxury and it also has an easy entry/exit feature. Those drivers who like to see the end of the hood while driving, however, may be disappointed and driver rear vision, even with the secondary lower back window, is also somewhat restricted. While seating is provided for up to five, the ZDX was conceived as a personal escape vehicle for two adults. It’s a design that’s clearly focused on pampering the front seat occupants and it also allows them to

The coupe-like appearance is pulled off by enlarging the front doors and concealing the rear door handles. bring along considerably more cargo than a conventional coupe allows. A power operated (open/ close) rear liftgate is standard. The cargo area is fully

carpeted and additional storage can be found in a large under-floor compartment. Removable side panels also allow golf bags to fit crosswise. Challenge The only challenge is the ZDX is not well appreciated in the marketplace (just look at their sales figures on this model), making it a truly niche vehicle. I believe the main issue is that people don’t exactly know what this car stands for. Is it a sporty SUV, a five-door cross-over or just a fancy looking, five-door luxury hatchback? The ZDX is none of these, of course, but people are not aware of that in the first glance at the car or even after a brief test drive. I think once buyers understand the real intent of this car — it is a sporty, trendy alternative to today’s boring SUVs — they might appreciate the car much more. With pricing changes and added standard equipment, we might even say the ZDX is a good value, which wasn’t the case before.

Street Soccer League founder recognized for his work DAVE WILLIS

Tsawwassen’s Alan Bates talks to some players from the Vancouver Street Soccer League.

Tides at Tsawwassen Pacific Standard Time. Height in feet

Alan Bates says he was honoured to be the Vancouver Whitecaps nominee for the Major League Soccer Community MVP Award. “It was really neat the Whitecaps decided to support us in that way. We definitely got lots of public interest about it,” said Bates, who grew up in Tsawwassen and is a South Delta Secondary grad. “I think its led to a stronger relationship between us and the Whitecaps as well.” The winner, which gets a $10,000 donation to the charity of their choice, was announced Wednesday at the league’s AllStar Game in Philadelphia. There were 19

nominees, representing each MLS market, who competed in a two-week online contest. Bates, a resident psychiatrist at the University of B.C., said he’s already been notified he didn’t win but said it was still an honour to be nominated. He’s the founder of the Vancouver Street Soccer League. It’s “made up of teams that provide friendship for the homeless, physical fitness for the ill and addicted, direction for at-risk youth, and cultural focus for other unique communities such as inner-city First Nations people,” the league’s website states. Bates coaches Portland FC, one of the nine teams in the league. He noted the Whitecaps are having a number of street soccer players come out to their home game on August 11.

Rowers lead medal haul at B.C. Summer Games

Delta athletes turned in some outstanding performances at last weekend’s B.C. Summer Games in Surrey. The multi-sport event, which takes place every two years, featured over 2300 athletes from across the province competing at 20 sports venues. With an average age of 14, the B.C. Games are a training ground for the best up-andcoming athletes in the province. Twenty-five members of Canada’s 2012 Summer Olympics team are B.C Games alumni. The 2014 B.C. Summer Games will take place in Nanaimo. One of the biggest medal hauls for local athletes was

close to home as the rowing events were hosted by the Delta Deas Rowing Club on the Deas Slough. Ty Yamamoto and Miranda Prekaski took advantage of the familiar waters to collectively win 11 medals. Elsewhere, Michael Milic was a force in the triathlon events, winning three gold medals. Delta athletes and coaches also had key roles in Fraser River Delta baseball and lacrosse teams winning bronze medals. Here’s a rundown of the Delta medal winners as provided by the B.C. Summer Games.

Still the girls have overcome the adversity to win a number of tournaments on both sides of the border. They are now preparing to represent B.C. at the U16 Canadian Championships, slated for Aug. 8-12 in Brantford, ON.

The Delta ’96 Heat girls rep fastpitch team made it back-to-back provincial championships in dramatic fashion. Montana Turnovitsky delivered a clutch one out hit in the bottom seventh inning to cash in Marley Parker as the Heat outlasted the Victoria ’96 Devils to claim the U16 crown. Parker, Francais Olexa and Carolyn Thoveson did an outstanding job on the mound throughout the championships, with Jennifer Linde and Lexie Brenneis catching. Fantastic fielding and hitting by Kennedy Bailey, Holly Speers, Haili

SPEIGHT, DILYS After a life of devotion to her family and her many friends, Dilys Speight, a woman of deep religious faith, died peacefully on Thursday, July 19 at the age of 87. She always believed in “blooming where she was planted,” and that included the hard times of post-war Britain, to her early married life in West Africa to her last days in a long-term care home in Tsawwassen. Blooming for her meant reaching out to others, many of them women who sought her help and advice in dealing with relationships and other issues in their lives. Dilys grew up in Wales during the Depression. She and her husband-to-be, Peter, met early in World War Two, and then began years of letter writing after he went overseas, a correspondence that culminated in their marriage in 1945. In 1951, she and Peter moved to the Gold Coast (now Ghana) where he taught science at one of the country’s first high schools. When Ghana became independent, they moved to Trail in the B.C. Interior where she got involved with the Anglican Church, developing her talents as a listener and advisor. In the late 1970s, she supported Peter as he retired early from teaching and went back to university to become an Anglican priest. They served at churches in Golden, Nelson and Nakusp before moving to Vancouver Island where they ran St. Francis House, a church counselling centre in Nanaimo. They later moved to Tsawwassen where they became involved with the Baptist church and made many new friends including her honourary daughter, Yvonne Anderson. When they moved into the KinVillage care home, she reached out to the staff, wanting to know more about their lives. This meant a new circle of friends that led to an invitation (as a woman of faith) to pray at Richmond’s Jami’a Mosque, and the amazing gift of a gorgeous blue suit brought back from India, a blue that matched her eyes. She looked so happy, so beautiful in the suit, the family decided she should wear it on the final stage of her journey. She will be sorely missed by her son Duncan and his wife Betty of Tofino, her daughter Vanessa of Calgary, her son Andrew and his wife Dolores of Penticton and her sister June Williams of White Rock. She is also survived by six grandchildren; Matthew, Elizabeth, Julia, Eric, Emily and Jessica. Most of all, she will be missed by Peter, her loving husband of more than 66 years. We would like to thank her many friends who shared her love throughout her life, with very special thanks to the caring staff at KinVillage who made her life more comfortable. Dilys supported Covenant House in Vancouver, and in lieu of flowers please consider this worthwhile cause. Cremation has already occurred, with a celebration of life planned for a later date.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The whole week is romantic. If you’re not in the market, the same influence brings you beauty, pleasure, joy in kids, and a favourable risk-reward outlook, in stocks, speculation, etc. An old flame could return. Remember, don’t start any major projects before Aug. 8. Love exists Sunday, though on “low heat.” A new/old friend might come Monday, and he/she will have an effect on your ambitions, career or status in the world. Work uncomplainingly Tuesday. Flirtation, joy, popularity and grand hopes for the future arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Retreat, lie low late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: This week starts with mysteries and changes (Sunday) but soon switches, Monday/Tuesday, into a more intellectual, legal, cultural atmosphere. These two days are an unusual mixture of friendliness, career blessings and monetary stability/luck tied to work or health – along with unpredictable nerves (Monday) and practical/ethical warnings (Tuesday). Remember, don’t start ANY important projects before Aug. 8. Your prestige soars midweek – at the very least, people call you Ma’am or Sir. Butter up higher-ups. Hopes come true Friday/Saturday. All week, seek home, kids, rest. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your lucky year – best in 13. It started in June.Those of you born in May might already be feeling it. Remember two holdups: 1) now through Aug. 7, don’t start projects; 2) now through Aug. 30, karma is still “watching you,” so a) behave, b) try to figure out how your past actions have begat consequences, and c) seek others; reject independence. Though August makes you wait, it distracts you with enjoyable travel, friends, conversations, curiosity and discoveries. DON’T buy, invest, Monday/Tuesday. Love, understanding and inspiration come Wednesday/Thursday.



Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing before Aug. 8. The main accent lies on money, earnings, possessions – and a sensual attraction. If one of these returns from the past, especially if from the “heavier side”Wednesday/Thursday, go ahead, grab a winner! (By “heavier” I mean sex and commitment more than sensuality, investment or debt reduction more than earnings, etc.) Tackle chores Sunday. Relationships offer conflict and disappointment, as well as prestige and comfort (and a valuable secret?) Monday/Tuesday. Pick well. Sweet, gentle understanding arrives Friday (best) and Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: I’d warn you against starting new ventures/relationships, but your present indecision is a natural deterrent. Relax, let events flow: the fears and uncertainties of the last 15 years have made you a mild control freak. Now through mid-2013, you’ll be much luckier if you let the cosmos have control. (E.g., you can’t force a wish to come true, but the cosmos – the matrix surrounding you – can, and likely will during this lucky year, bring your deepest wishes true.) Savour someone’s beauty Sunday. Work carefully Monday/ Tuesday. Exciting meetings midweek! Friday brings deeper fires. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Don’t start new ventures, investments or relationships before Aug, 8. Instead, handle overdue government or administrative tasks and paperwork; fulfill old obligations to shut-ins and charities; and seek spiritual horizons. Higher-ups still love you. Show them what you can do (especially Wednesday/Thursday) without starting new projects. Money flows swiftly to Aug. 23 (to you and through you: be careful with spending). Home sweet home, Sunday. Romantic notions can lure you into a stew of sexual urge and disappointment Monday/Tuesday. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday.

July 29 - Aug. 4, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Expect popularity, optimism, social delights, flirtations and wish fulfillment. Before Aug. 8, they will be old wishes, former friends, old (light) flames. Before then, pursue unfamiliar faces at your peril – new relationships will blossom after the 8th. Until late August, you’ll be more assertive and determined than usual – but don’t go wild with this. Sunday’s for errands. Protect home, family Monday/Tuesday: love’s good, wise. Romance has a splendid chance Wednesday/ Thursday. (Married? Pursue kids’ programs, art, beauty, pleasure.) To work you go, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no new projects before Aug. 8. Meantime, any “investments” you made in the past in your career or reputation might now pay off (likely July 29 or Aug. 5/6). Work can be hard and burdensome until Aug. 23, but it carries future benefits, so keep at it. Benefits either continue to flow your way from past financial or intimate commitments, or your past actions now prevent such payoffs – but September onward, the bonanza gates will open. Chase money Sunday. Guard speech, writing, driving Monday/Tuesday. Success at home midweek. Romance, pleasure Friday/Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start no new projects nor relationships before Aug. 8. An old flame (or a former “teacher”) might return – so might books, letters, philosophies and international or educational contacts from the past. Others remain gracious, generous – this will last for 11 more months. Your energy and charisma sail high Sunday. Be alert to money problems Monday/Tuesday. (A great friendship, love or romance might distract you.) Talk, travel, handle paperwork and errands Wednesday/ Thursday – all’s smooth, easy, friends are friendly! Settle into home, kids, garden Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 8, especially in financial or intimate zones. This is an excellent time for research or self-examination. Your work scene is still pleasant, co-workers are affectionate, but bosses remain temperamental until Aug. 23. Their impatience hints that they are planning/handling a big increase in business, or a big project – and you, over the months ahead, will see your duties and hours expand. Rest Sunday. Your charisma, energy rise high Monday/ Tuesday: use them to solve home, career, income problems. Chase money Thursday/Friday: lucky! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’ll feel energized or flat, co-operative or belligerent, as relationships either please or defy you. Start no new projects/relationships before Aug. 8.Your romantic, speculative, creative and pleasure-loving instincts are running hot, but these contain a (mildly) negative karmic element until Aug. 30. So deflect – gently – those who chase you before then. (A Libra might have his/her eye on you – and to a Leo, you represent the future. But it’s Gemini who really has your heart. But – unless a former flame returns this week – wait.) Avoid head office, gov’t, Monday/Tuesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Start nothing important before Aug. 8. August ends a lot of things: it ends (Aug. 7) the sweetness you’ve felt at home (but replaces it with very lucky cheerfulness and optimistic plans); it stops (by Aug. 23) a dangerous urge to invest or jump into someone’s bed without forethought; and it finally (Aug. 30) concludes an 18-month “period of loss” in real estate, home, parent-child relations and foundational ventures. This means September will be chock-full of opportunities (personal and business) – wait. Joy and rejection mingle Monday/Tuesday. You conquer Friday! • Reading: 604-727-3673
