Do we have enough civic politicians?

Stop laughing, it’s a serious question.

Delta is the largest municipality in the province with a mayor and just six councillors, which puts a greater workload on our elected officials. Efforts to increase that number date back 40 years, however, Mayor Lois Jackson doesn’t see it changing anytime soon.

Delta council members (from left) Ian Paton, Robert Campbell, Mayor Lois Jackson and Scott Hamilton were all re-elected last November. The seven-member council is on the small side for a municipality with a population of 100,000, but that number can only be increased with the electorate’s consent.

No appetite for bigger council Mayor, councillor don’t see electorate wanting more civic politicians despite lower numbers than elsewhere BY

Delta is getting by just fine with a smaller than normal number of civic politicians. That’s what Mayor Lois Jackson had to say when asked about the possibility of Delta council increasing its number to be in line with other similar sized communities. Delta still employs a mayor and six councillors and that’s not likely to change, said the five-term mayor. “All of us have to work a little harder and a little smarter than others that have nine or 11 councillors on their councils. We’d have to have an agreement by the population to be any different,” said Jackson. Delta put forward a proposal to the electorate in a 1972 referendum, asking voters if they wanted to increase the number of councillors from six to

eight. At the time, alderman Lorne Carmichael said when a municipality reaches a population of 50,000 it is entitled to eight aldermen. Carmichael said, “Council has a tremendous workload and we could use some help on council.” Delta’s population in that period was just over 45,0000, but it was the fastest growing municipality in Canada. Then mayor Dugald Morrison wasn’t keen on increasing the number of politicians, saying he felt “no alderman is overworked for the amount of money he gets.” Earlier that year council voted to give itself a 6.5 per cent pay increase, bringing alderman to $3,834 per year, while mayor’s salary increased to $12,788. The referendum, held during the municipal and school board elections, was soundly defeated. Jackson, who was

first elected to council in that election, recalled, “I remember that referendum and it got totally trounced. People said, ‘No, we’ve got too many already.’”

brought up earlier this year when council members gave themselves another salary increase. A report from staff noted that at 100,000 people, Delta is the largest

“In a lot of other communities, the provincial government said if you had a certain amount of people in your municipality, you could now be classified as a city and add more on council. In our case, we have to go to the electorate. I just don’t see the appetite changing.”

Mayor Lois Jackson

In the ensuing years the issue has been raised many times, but the number of civic politicians, despite what is now a doubling of the population, remains the same. A 1979 bylaw reaffirmed that any increase must go to community consultation and the electorate. The issue of Delta having fewer councillors was

municipality in the province that continues to employ a mayor and only six councillors. It’s normal practice for municipalities with populations over 50,000 to have more, the report stated. Employing fewer council members in Delta translates into additional workload for each because work items, such as council committees, need to be distributed

amongst fewer members, the report explained. Jackson noted, “In a lot of other communities, the provincial government said if you had a certain amount of people in your municipality, you could now be classified as a city and add more on council. In our case, we have to go to the electorate. I just don’t see the appetite changing.” Coun. Robert Campbell agreed, saying while the workload of Delta councillors might be more than councils in other communities, he doesn’t see the electorate wanting more politicians. “I don’t think Delta would have any appetite for increasing the number of councillors,” he said. Not including mayors, all of Delta’s larger neighbours have more councillors, including Surrey (eight), Richmond (eight) and Vancouver (10). White Rock, which has a population of around

20,000, which is even smaller than Tsawwassen or Ladner by itself, has six councillors. At a population of 65,000, New Westminster only has six councillors, but that community also has 35,000 people fewer than Delta. Some cities with smaller populations than Delta, including Kamloops (85,000) and Nanaimo (83,000), have eight councillors. Although the number on Delta council doesn’t appear it will be increased anytime soon, Jackson has come out in favour of longer terms for elected councils. That proposal seems to be dead in the water, however. Two years ago at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, delegates voted by a large margin against extending terms for municipal councils from three to four years.

Women across the Lower Mainland will soon be able to get an up close and personal look at a pair of Delta’s firefighters. Eric Bugiel and Mike Cvitkovich are two of 12 Lower Mainland firefighters featured in the 2013 Greater Vancouver Firefighters Hall of Flame calendar. Both have been with the Delta Fire Department for about four years and said they volunteered to be a part of the annual calendar, which helps raise money for a myriad of charities, including B.C. Professional Firefighters Burn Fund, CKNW Orphans Fund and the Vancouver Firefighters Charitable Society. Neither have been featured in the calendar in the past, however, numer-

ous other Delta firefighters have graced its pages, including a total of five in 2011. “It was kind of awkward,” Bugiel said of the photo shoot, adding he’s never taken his shirt off for the camera before. “It was fun,” said Cvitkovich, who is featured in the month of August. Bugiel closes out the calendar as Mr. December. Both said the photo shoot gave them extra motivation during workouts. The Hall of Flame calendar has become a tradition in the Lower Mainland. The idea was conceived and implemented 26 years ago by Vancouver firefighters and has since raised more than $1 million. The calendar is being released at a special event at Republic Nightclub in Vancouver tonight. Tickets cost $30 and are

available at the door. The ticket price includes a copy of the calendar and the chance to meet the featured firefighters, as well as an opportunity to take part in the bachelor auction for a chance to go on a date with one of the firefighters. The firefighters will also be appearing at a variety of events throughout the year. Locally, both Bugiel and Cvitkovich will be out next weekend with many of their fellow Delta firefighters collecting donations around the community in the department’s annual boot drive, which raises money for the Delta Firefighters Charitable Society. The 2013 Greater Vancouver Firefighters Hall of Flame calendar will be available at select London Drugs and Save-On-Foods stores as well as online at www.vancouverfirefighters. ca/fundraising.

Delta fire halls hosting open houses The Delta Fire Department is opening its doors to the public this month with a pair of open houses. The events will give members of the public an opportunity to have a look

inside a fire hall and talk to Delta’s firefighters about everything from home fire safety to a career in firefighting. Hall #1 in Ladner is hosting an open house tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The hall is located at 4654 Harvest Dr. The second open house is at Hall #3 in North Delta on Saturday, Sept. 22, also from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. That hall is located at 11375-84th Ave.

They’re taking One Small Step for Ellie Local family organizing walk next Saturday in Ladner to raise money for Prader-Willi Syndrome research BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Little Ellie MacDonald might never know the satisfying feeling that follows a good meal and she will never be able to be left alone with food — but her family is hoping to change that. The 16-month-old was born with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), which is caused by a genetic defect of the 15th chromosome and affects one in 15,000 births and one in 50,000 people. Prader-Willi carries a variety of symptoms, including low muscle tone, small stature, fair skin and hair colouring, hypothyroidism, sleep apnea, slow metabolism and developmental delays. Not every person with PWS will exhibit every symptom, however, they all have one — a truly insatiable appetite. “In people with PWS, a part of the brain, the hypothalamus, malfunctions,” said Ellie’s mom, Susanne Szabo-MacDonald. “The brain never receives the

signal that the individual has had enough to eat and they feel like they’re starving, regardless of how much they’ve eaten.” People with PWS can never be left alone because they will go to great lengths to access and eat as much food as possible. Without strict controls on calorie intake and exercise, they can quickly become morbidly obese, which can lead to a host of other health issues, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart and respiratory problems. Currently, the only treatment for PWS is daily growth hormone therapy injections and while that helps with strength, growth and brain development, it does nothing to quell the constant hunger. Szabo-MacDonald said she knew when she was pregnant with Ellie that something was wrong. Compared to her previous pregnancy with son Jakob, who is now three-and-ahalf, her second pregnancy was difficult. Ellie was born at 32 weeks and Szabo-

Last year, just 10 days after receiving Ellie’s diagnosis, the family took part in the One Small Step fundraising walk in Burnaby. In that time they managed to rally 40 people and raise $4,000. One Small Step is an international movement to raise money for research into a cure for PWS. This year, the family has organized a local One Small Step walk. The event takes place on Saturday, Sept. 22 at Ladner Harbour Park. There will be a one-kilometre walk and a six-kilometre fun run. Open Space Yoga will be on hand to lead participants in a warm up and there will also be a silent auction, healthy refreshments, face painting and music. Szabo-MacDonald said their goal is to raise $10,000 and so far they’ve raised $6,700. Scotiabank, which is sponsoring the event, is matching donations. Registration for the event starts at 10 a.m. and the walk starts at 11 a.m. For more information visit www.facebook.com/ onesmallstepladner.

hypothyroidism. Initially, SzaboMacDonald and husband Jason MacDonald were told Ellie’s hunger issues wouldn’t become an issue

until she was around six years old. “Her hunger kicked in in February,” she said. “It sucks, it’s really hard.” The end of a meal is heartbreaking, SzaboMacDonald said. Ellie cries and incessantly asks for more using sign language. “The hardest part is to see her really hungry at the end of a meal,” she said. It has changed the way the family eats. There is no junk food in the house. There are no treats, meals are kept to a schedule and there are no second helpings. Ellie’s food intake is carefully measured and monitored to ensure she is receiving enough calories and nutrients to support her growth and development. Szabo-MacDonald said quickly removing any left over food from the table and moving into another room of the house helps distract her daughter. It’s difficult but the family remains committed to making life as normal as possible. “We don’t really have a choice, we have to be strong for her,” she said.

Duo makes Delta stop in bid to document the state of farming Ontario filmmakers crossing the country on a tractor to talk to farmers BY

NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

John Varty and Molly Daley passed through Delta this week on their crosscountry Tractor Canada journey. The two, who live in southern Ontario, are in the process of making a documentary about the state of farming in Canada and were in town to talk to local farmers before heading over to Vancouver Island. “We’re going to get as much footage as we can in the next day,” said Varty on Wednesday. “All you have to do is open your eyes in this area and the land

The South Delta Minor Fastpitch Association’s Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) will be held on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 from 7:00 - 9:00 at the Ladner Community Center in the Multi-purpose Room. Every one attending the meeting will be entered into a draw for a free registration for the 2013 season.

A very special thank you … … to all who have been friends and customers at Mark’s Tanning and Hair Salon. It has been such a pleasure to be of service these many years to the warm and caring community of South Delta. The business has been sold and Renko will enjoy retirement after being self-employed in the hair and tanning industry for over 40 years. Due to decisions of the new management at Mark’s, Aggie will be continuing her long professional career as a stylist at a new location with a local salon to be announced after a short but well deserved holiday. She looks forward to seeing her regular and new customers, young and old.

Thank you for the cherished memories. The Juric Family Renko (Frank), Ajica (Aggie) & Mark

pressures are ... clear and unmistakable. It’s a story we’re seeing all across the country.” Varty, a former university professor, and Daley have been travelling across Canada on a tractor with a small sleeping cabin hooked up to it. They were stopped near Revelstoke by police and told they needed a permit as well as a secondary vehicle with flashers and warning signs to continue on. A towing company owner who saw their story in the media eventually volunteered to lend a hand. With the help of a flatbed truck they arrived in Ladner late Tuesday. Since Varty and Daley missed all of the farmland between Revelstoke and Delta, they plan to return sometime in the fall. “Our sense of it is B.C. farmers need to be part of this story,” said Varty. He said they’d like to finish the documentary in about a year. So far about 200 hours of interview footage has been compiled. “We have to find a way to package it in way we can tell the most effective story possible,” he said. “That’s going to be our biggest task.” Living in their small mobile cabin has also been a bit of an adventure. “On a 28 degree day in the middle of July when you’re camping it’s great.

John Varty and Molly Daley, with their tractor and cabin, at a Ladner farm Wednesday. It’s like a totally sweet, kind of unique camping trip,” he said. On the flip side there are days when it’s cold, pouring rain and you’ve got two flat tires, he added, which can make the experience a horrible one. Daley, who’s originally from New York, has been in Canada for four years. “For me, it’s a great way to see my new country,” she said. Varty said anyone with

a story to tell can get in touch through their website (www.tractorcanada.com). “We’re doing this because we believe in farming more broadly and food production, but we can’t do it without farmers’ input,” he said. “We need people to contribute in a way we can make this an informative thing for city people to see. So they go, ‘Wow, now I’ve learned something about farming.’”

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW Surely they can’t be that stupid. From oblivion to more than 20 per cent support in public opinion polls in little more than a year, the upstart Conservatives are poised to make significant inroads in next year’s provincial election. That will only happen, however, if they can keep their own house in order between now and next May. In the last few weeks some discontent has surfaced within the Conservatives’ board of directors, much of it aimed at John Cummins, the longtime Delta MP who became leader of the provincial party midway through last year. The fact Cummins has rubbed some people the wrong way is far from surprising; what is noteworthy is that it took more than a year for it to happen (or at least for it to go public). That’s not meant to be a knock on the former MP, who is as straight a shooter as you’re likely to find in a political world where butt kissing and waffling are traits that are honed to an art form. For those who didn’t follow his federal career closely, know that Cummins came by the maverick label honestly. When in opposition, he was critical of the government; when in power, he was also critical of the government. Some opined that meant he wasn’t a team player, and there’s absolutely no doubt his outspoken ways cost him a cabinet post as minister of fisheries, but wouldn’t you rather have a politician tell you what he thinks rather than what he thinks you want to hear? When he became leader of the provincial Conservatives last year, I wondered how that style would work now that he was the guy in charge. There was no doubt he had the smarts and the integrity for the job, but could he be the conciliator? For the most part, it seems to have worked out just fine. The initial honeymoon phase has been extended thanks to a continuing exodus from the governing Liberals, providing the Conservatives with a relevancy they haven’t enjoyed in decades. Whether that momentum carries on is subject to a variety of factors, not the least of which is whether members shoot the party in its figurative foot. With an election just eight months away and critical infrastructure still being put in place, it hardly seems like the right time to step away from that effort and put the focus on a leadership review. It would surely damage the party’s election fortunes to switch gears now, but then again, it would be the height of hypocrisy if members didn’t speak their mind in a Cummins-led party.

Compromise needed to end this divisive chapter in Delta history DOUG HUSBAND

COMMUNITY COMMENT This will be my fourth, and last, column on the Spetifore property. My last column outlined Delta’s involvement in its 1979 submission to the provincial environmental land use committee requesting exclusion of the Spetifore property from the Agricultural Land Reserve. These lands were removed from the ALR by order in council in 1981. This process was heavily criticized in some quarters, as were the soil classifications. From that moment on the future of the Spetifore lands became an election issue. There was much speculation as to the value of these lands upon rezoning. Developers were quoted as stating then the lands had a potential value of $150 million. George Spetifore wearied of the time and toll in his role and sold the property to Dawn Developments in 1981. Delta council was active in the 1970s with its

support and in the 1980s a lengthy planning process was underway. The Official Community Plan was completed in 1986 after three years of public consultation. The South Delta Area Plan of 1987 designated the land as “urban” with singlefamily designation. Dawn Development sold its interest to the Lalji family, which then submitted a request to council for rezoning and amendment to the official community plan. George Spetifore continued as a spokesperson along with Michael Geller as a planning consultant for the applicant. While there were philosophically different opinions offered by council, it was agreed the application should proceed to a public hearing. The applicant undertook an open house approach in the months leading to the hearing to inform residents of the proposed application. As an interesting sidebar, Dr. David Strangway the president of UBC at the time, attended the mayor’s office to provide input on the organized public opposition to the proposal. The opposition centered on the environment, wildlife and aboriginal issues in addition to usual concerns of traffic, density and farmland. The housing plan, which included 1,990 units, a golf course

and open space components, was brought forward briefly in 1988 and adjourned for procedural reasons. The public process resumed on May 1, 1989 with 409 oral submissions and 3,748 opinion papers. The lengthy hearing became a divisive community issue. There was strident opposition to the application culminating with a community gathering. Local farmers held their own rally in support of the applicant through the downtown core of Tsawwassen. The bylaws were ultimately withdrawn hours before council’s debate on the proposal, to the ire of council. By way of motion, council expressed its opposition to the plan and the proponent’s action on the day of debate. This was a very unhappy time in Delta’s political history. Hopefully those currently opposed, neutral or in favour will find some common ground. We are fortunate to have a second-generation local owner at the helm of the development process. With the history of these lands in mind, there has been a serious attempt to find a proposal that satisfies the majority of concerns. There is a solution and it’s called compromise. And a goodnight to you, George.

Unethical agenda at work Editor: Re: Minister responds to critic of treaty process, letter to the editor, August 31 Minister Mary Polak stated that: “Treaties define aboriginal rights as treaty rights; they do not extinguish them.” The minister neglected to admit the difference between “aboriginal title and rights” and “aboriginal treaty rights.” The minister was attempting to refute the claims of Tsawwassen First Nation member Bertha Williams that the TFN treaty was a violation of aboriginal rights as it eliminated a longstanding aboriginal title in which land belonged to families. These rights were extinguished by a small group of appointed people, namely the treaty commission, which changed aboriginal title and rights and redefined them as

aboriginal treaty rights. “Financial inducements” were used to ensure a positive vote of the TFN treaty, which endorsed these changes. Money was promised to seniors if the band voted “yes” and the B.C. government hired a public relations firm to ensure the TFN members supported the treaty. This process was developed by the B.C. government, not by the First Nation as claimed by Polak. The process fails to meet basic international standards for constitutional votes and for dealing with indigenous rights. Williams correctly pointed out that due process was not followed and First Nation concerns were not adequately addressed as they were limited to negotiating with an appointed treaty commission. She has

taken her concerns to the United Nations Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which in turn has sought explanations from the Canadian government about irregularities in the treaty process. In order to facilitate the TFN treaty of 2007, two secret intergovernmental perquisite agreements were signed in 2004. This information was withheld from the public, including band members. The secret agreements committed the TFN to support port development as part of the treaty process. So contrary to Polak’s comments, this was not a transparent process. It was an unjust and unethical agenda to pave over farmland and wildlife habitat for port development at the mouth of the Fraser River. Susan Jones

Vandalism committed by a misguided few Editor: Re: It’s time students policed their own random acts of stupidity, Community Comment, Sept. 7 Mike Schneider leaves the impression the acts of vandalism committed on Hell Night are in some way connected to recent job action by teachers and general dissatisfaction in the education system. As a participant and cosponsor of grad activities, it is my fervent wish that the acts of vandalism were committed by a misguided few. It is neither trite nor facile to make the suggestion. If I thought the effort was organized and widespread, I would resign my support. I certainly agree that peers in the grad class

can have a profound impact on one another. Every citizen should and ought to engage in constructive debate about education. It is, after all, one of the most important aspects of civilized societies. An individual’s response to a poll can often be coloured by one’s experience in education rather than one’s beliefs. The education system is increasingly being asked to do more with fewer resources. It is perhaps the greatest existing frustration for educators province-wide. From this circumstance, school boards are constantly looking for innovative solutions to chronic underfunding, of which the academy programs are an example. Parents ought to be con-

cerned that it may be creating a tier of opportunity available only to families that can afford to pay. Aside from the unfortunate acts on Hell Night, the school year opened on a very positive note. There was good tone and students arrived with positive attitudes prepared to meet the challenges of a new year. I am also confident that positive conversations took place in graduating families about the importance of this final year of high school as members of this class prepare for the next phase of their lives.

Fraser ferry gets support

Editor: Re: Tunnel congestion opens door to idea of passenger ferry, letter to the editor, Sept. 5 In answer to ML Burke’s letter about a foot passenger ferry to Richmond, I have to say I was happy to see a like-minded individual express that idea. It’s something that has occurred to me many times and I’ve never quite understood why it’s not an option that is being added to the list of possible solutions to lessen the George Massey Tunnel gridlock. Maybe it makes too much sense. Looking at a map, it would seem that it would take longer to get across, but would people rather sit feeling frustrated in traffic and breathing fumes or enjoy the beauty that is around us? It would certainly start a person’s day in a more serene mood and be a great way to wind down at the end of the day. And I don’t

actually think it would lengthen the trip given the time currently spent in traffic. A shuttle bus to Brighouse Station would then be required but is that really all that costly when compared to building a bridge or a tunnel? Why is there a SeaBus in Vancouver and nothing similar at all for those of us south of the Fraser? Even to lessen the rush hour traffic from Ladner/ Tsawwassen would make a huge difference. Small steps can create large solutions. Ladner wants to develop the waterfront. How are tourists going to get here? What an added bonus for them to arrive here by boat. We’re very heritage conscious in Ladner. A ferry is how people got here before the tunnel. Can you get more heritage than that? It would also help alleviate the traffic problem during the public markets. Thank goodness the Delta

police are lenient because I had a hard time parking to attend church. I wasn’t a traffic hindrance and I have a small car, but I wasn’t between two white lines either. Since our fishing industry has all but disappeared, there are certainly enough people around that are qualified to operate a passenger ferry. It would create jobs for those people as well.

Shame to see business that’s meeting a community need forced to close doors

Editor: Re: Farm storage business scuttled, Aug. 29 To me, it seems really sad that a thriving business, which is obviously meeting needs in our community, has to shut down. I sincerely hope that Bob Robertson will not have to sell his farm. It sounds as though Robertson has done his best to maintain his farm

in good condition and evidently also made sure he paid the commercial tax rate on the property. My understanding is that many farmers are finding it hard to make a decent living. We are not going to just lose farms to the port and highways, but from lack of ability to thrive. I think it would be a great loss to our community if Robertson had to

shut down and sell. If it was hard for him to make it with just farming, who is likely to buy the farm? Could Delta council work on some creative way to amend the regulations so that an orderly business like his could continue to meet many needs, but those who allow their farms to deteriorate will be required to improve?

Supporting local farmers doesn’t cost any more

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Organizer Bill McKnight (rear), B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets executive director Elizabeth Quinn (right) and others were wearing their green Farmers’ Appreciation Week T-shirts at the Ladner Village Market last Sunday. Appreciation events took place in over 30 communities in B.C. last weekend. Buying locally grown and raised food is an excellent way to show support for our farmers.

ELIZABETH QUINN & KALEEN MCNAMARA

BY

This is Farmers’ Appreciation Week in B.C., a time to reflect on the importance of our agricultural producers and of buying locally produced food to keep farm families farming and to support our local economy. In recent weeks in B.C. we have seen both the NDP and Liberals demonstrate their appreciation for local food. Adrian Dix discussed prioritizing local agriculture through government procurement polices and the Liberal government unveiled its plan to launch a local food marketing campaign worth $2 million. These are timely announcements, but what can the average British Columbian do to support local farmers? Perhaps make time this week to support farmers directly at a farmers’ market, yet critics claim that this will cost more of your hard earned dollars. However, when it comes to purchasing fruit and vegetables, a study by Seattle University between 2003 and 2011 found organic fruit and vegetables in season are either cheaper or cost the same at farmers’ markets. The B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets is look-

$'&$ !%#

ing at how our farmers’ market prices compare with grocery stores. Preliminary findings in six B.C. communities indicate that conventional and organic products at farmers’ markets are the same price or less than the grocery store. Farmers’ markets often have more organic selection and this can make them seem expensive, but the price of equivalent products is generally the same, or less, than in grocery stores. For those on a tight budget, most farmers’ markets have conventional producers and shoppers quickly learn which growers they can afford to buy from. This year, Farmers’ Appreciation Week is focused on young people in agriculture as farmers in B.C. have the highest average age in Canada and nearly half of all Canadian farmers’ are 55 years or older. Farmers’ markets provide a low-cost and effective marketing channel for new farmers. British Columbians are encouraged to buy B.C. fruit and vegetables at a farmers’ market, farm-gate or grocery store this week to support B.C. farmers. Executive director Elizabeth Quinn and Kaleen McNamara work at the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets.

Hiring climate favourable for fall South Delta Motors hosting

Delta and Richmond area employers anticipate a favourable hiring climate for the fourth quarter of the year, according to the most recent Manpower employment outlook survey. “Survey data shows that 17 per cent of employers intend to hire with none expecting cutbacks for the upcoming quarter (October to December),” said Jeff Polkinghorne with Manpower’s Vancouver office. The study shows the other 83 per cent plan to maintain current staffing levels for the remaining months of the year. Seventeen per cent is a moderate decrease from the previous quarter’s report of 24 per cent planning to hire, however, it’s a one percentage point increase over what was reported at the same time last year. “Job seekers in all regions are likely to benefit from a positive hiring climate from October through

We were excited to have the opportunity to bring the experience back to Delta.” Fly Zone Bodyflight uses vertical wind tunnel technology to create winds up to 230 km/h and a flying experience that simulates a skydive freefall without the falling risks and costs associated with skydiving. Fly Zone Bodyflight has been operating a portable wind tunnel since 2009 and opened an all-weather location in December 2010 in Delta. It operated until last December when the site was closed for development. Fly Zone is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The site is available at other times for group bookings. Rates are $35 for a single flight or two flights for $50.

women-only car workshop

Free session teaches the basics of vehicle maintenance

South Delta Motors in Tsawwassen is looking to help women make informed decisions about their vehicles through an upcoming workshop. The third annual event, set for Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., is free, but open only to women. The purpose of the workshop is to empower and educate female drivers by teaching them the basics of vehicle maintenance. It’s a workshop for women of all ages; everyone from teens just getting their driver’s licence to seniors that recently lost a

partner that typically took car of their vehicle. South Delta Motors recognizes we live in a busy society today, with self-serve gas bars at every corner. The clerk behind the cash register isn’t trained to answer questions or allowed to step out to check your oil or tire pressure. The objective of the evening is to make women feel more comfortable discussing issues with the mechanic when they bring their vehicle in for service and repairs. Mechanics don’t have a Advertisement

Housekeeping for Homeowners. Like most British Columbians, your home is likely your most precious investment, but keeping it protected with simple home maintenance often falls behind a busy lifestyle and other priorities. Yet basic home maintenance does not require a lot of specialized skills or know-how, is very cost effective and an excellent approach to protection against an unexpected crisis and costs. Here we share some important tips to keep your home and family safe. • Prevent the possibility of a fire hazard by keeping the dryer vent clean. Clean the lint filter every time you run your dryer and once a year slide the vent out and remove any lint build up. • Run an energy efficient furnace by replacing filters at least every three months, especially for proper operation over winter. Dirty filters block airflow, lowering air quality and making it potentially dangerous to your family’s health. They also cause furnaces to work overtime, increasing energy bills and eventually to overheat, burn out and be replaced. • Prevent mold by monitoring your home for condensation. Too much moisture indoors eventually poses a health risk, and left untreated will rot woodwork. Examine your windows, checking for cracks or breaks in the seals that can easily be fixed. • Guard against water damage by looking for signs of dripping and

Leaking fixtures can often be fixed with simple replacement parts like O-rings, cartridges or flappers for leaky toilets. Leaks are easy to miss, but early repair avoids costly water damage. • Make sure your gutters are clean and water run-off is unobstructed. At least once a year physically remove debris and build-up from your gutters and ensure your downpipes are clear. Blocked gutters and pipes can force water to back up and soak into the roof, walls, and even the foundation. Basic upkeep of your home protects your investment and safeguards your family.

KinVillage open house gets visitors moving!

Terry Fox Run is set for Rotary Square in Tsawwassen this Sunday morning

Runners, walkers and rollers are scheduled to take part in the annual Terry Fox Run for cancer research this Sunday in Tsawwassen. Gail McEwen, co-chair of the South Delta event, which is organized by the Tsawwassen Rotary Club, said last year’s run attracted 350 participants. McEwen said that while it is aimed at raising funds,

the main focus is participation and making it a fun, family-oriented and educational event. Bring those things together and the money will come, she said. The South Delta Terry Fox Run includes five- and 10-kilometre routes. Both options begin and end at Rotary Square at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. Both routes are open for walkers, runners and

rollers. McEwen said it’s pet-friendly as long as animals are on leashes. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and the walk/run/ roll starts at 10 a.m. There is no registration fee and no minimum donation. Participants are invited to stick around after the run for a barbecue, raffle draw and other festivities. For more information visit www.terryfoxrun.org.

Stir it up There is a lovely old prayer that is often read on the Sunday before Advent that says, “Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people, that richly bearing the fruit of good works, we may by you be richly rewarded...” Years ago my grandmother, upon praying this prayer in church, would later rush home and begin to assemble the ingredients for her Christmas cake. This, you see, was “stir up” Sunday and not only were we to stir our Christmas cake ingredients, but we were to stir our hearts and minds to prepare for Advent and the coming of Christ. This past week, I thought of this prayer as I participated in a celebration of “new ministry” as a neigh-

bouring parish greeted its new pastor. My 21-year-old cousin Cameron read from the “gospel of Luke”(Luke 4:38-44). His clear, booming voice and his beaming smile shone into every nook and cranny of the church and with each word he read - he also shared an unspoken message - “this is God’s word come into our midst, this is Good News, this is love right here, right now.” He was clearly stirred up. That night the good news was about new birth, new beginnings, new relationships, and God was clearly at the centre of it all. Whether it’s an old prayer or a new beginning, let’s stir our hearts every day and get ready for the Spirit’s blessing on us all.

Ladner teenager part of group to build a dormitory in Madagascar BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

Ladner’s Linda Rainbow was part of a team from Scouts Canada that spent last month in Madagascar working on an international development project. “It was an amazing experience for me to learn about the different culture in Madagascar and to work with people to accomplish our goal we set out to do,” said the 19-year-old. The team, made up of 16 youth and six adult supervisors, built a dormitory in the village of Ambato Boeni. Madagascar is an island country in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern coast of Africa. Rainbow noted the dorm would provide room for around 24 students, all girls from age 14 to 19. The team met one of the girls, also seeing her “shanty village” and living conditions. “It really clarified how important the project was for the village,” Rainbow said.

Linda Rainbow was in Madagascar last month for an international development project with a team from Scouts Canada. Her favourite part of the trip was working with locals and no matter of the cultural and language differences, being able to complete the project. Their team worked with local Scouts during their last week. “It was great to work with them and feel the connection of the Scouting movement,” Rainbow said.

The project was originally planned for 2009 but was postponed due to political unrest in the country. “This project will not only bring education to a population where only 45 per cent of youth will ever go to school, but it will also make it possible for students from outside of the village to have a

place to stay during the week, spreading education throughout the region,” according to the Scouts Canada website. Rainbow, who’s currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business management, plans to continue volunteering with Scouts as a youth commissioner for her local council.

Memory loss could be more than just sign of aging As we age, some forgetfulness is natural and inevitable. You might, for example, “lose” the car keys or other household objects, or forget where you heard something and/or who told you. Those usually aren’t causes for concern. But Delta families that are seeing their family members struggle with loss of memory, difficulty with day-to-day tasks, and changes in mood and behaviour could be dealing with something more serious. “People may think these symptoms are part of normal aging, but they aren’t,” explains Anthony Kupferschmidt, the local

support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. Those symptoms could well be indicators of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

“If you have concerns about your memory, or are concerned about someone else, it is important that you consult with your family doctor,” says Kupferschmidt.

The society can also help local caregivers who are living with someone with dementia. It runs a free support and information group that serves as a forum for shar-

ing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. The group helps create support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia. For more information,

contact Kupferschmidt at 604-238-7390 or anthonyk@alzheimerbc.org. For more information visit the Alzheimer Society of B.C. website at www. alzheimerbc.org.

Ladner’s Johnny van Tol has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his volunteer work, primarily with the B.C. Lung Association. Van Tol received the medal last weekend during the lung association’s 28th annual Bicycle Trek for Life and Breath, an event he has supported for the past quarter century. The award is a symbol of constancy and loyalty, as well as a symbol of service. “Johnny gives tirelessly to others and has been an outstanding volunteer in his community, especially for the lung association during in the past 25 years,” said Scott McDonald, CEO of the B.C. Lung Association. “It’s an honour,” said van Tol. “You don’t seek recognition, but it certainly feels great when the work you do is appreciated. I was really surprised to be nominated. It means a lot.”

Lung Association. “I was interested in taking on the challenge, but being Canadian, wanted to raise funds for the B.C. Lung Association

rather the American Lung Association. With a little help from the B.C. Lung Association, that’s just what I did,” said van Tol. “After I finished, the association suggested I participate in their annual Bicycle Trek for Life and Breath. I’ve been hooked ever since. Some years I ride, others I volunteer, and a few years I’ve had to pass, but for the most part I’ve been taking part every year since 1989. “I’ve also been involved in other Lung Association activities,” he said. “I work with special needs kids for a living and so when they asked if I would help with the association’s asthma kids camps, of course I accepted. I do as much as I can for the association.” Van Tol’s wife Morag, who he met since getting involved with the lung association, has become just as committed and involved to lung health issues. And like her husband, she too is employed in helping kids with special needs.

Close to 80 pieces of artwork are on display at Go Figure, including paintings, drawings and sculptures. “It’s a lovely show,” says Rod Winning, who has two pieces in the exhibit. The guild hosts life drawing drop-ins on Mondays, which start up again on Monday, Oct. 1, that are open to members and nonmembers. There is a small fee to take part because the artists are working with live models. The artists’ guild, which is a finalist in this

year’s Delta Chamber of Commerce Hats Off to Excellence Awards, was started 40 years ago and now supports over 140 members. Other popular dropins for members are held Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday where members can paint and socialize. Upcoming workshops include Glazing and Composition with Rick McDairmid (Sept. 21, 22, 23 for $295 or $280 for members) and Daily Painting Experience with Gaye Adams (Oct. 22, 23, 24 for $285 or $270 for members). Lea Price also has ongoing acrylics sessions on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Go Figure runs until Sunday, Sept. 23 at the Tsawwassen Longhouse

Gallery, 1710-56th St. (adjacent to the South Delta Recreation Centre). The gallery is open Thursday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The group’s upcoming show, Autumn Crisp, will run from Sept. 27 to Oct. 28.

Kids can get a chance to experience flight next weekend at Boundary Bay Airport. Local pilots will be offering free flights for young people from seven to 17 as part of the COPA for Kids program next Saturday. Harry Pride, one of the organizers, says about 14 pilots are signed up to fly and they get great satisfaction from taking the kids up in the air. “I enjoy flying kids because flying is a passion with me and I want to help other people experience

He notes the planes involved in the upcoming event will include a Cessna 150, Cessna 172, Cessna 177, Piper 150, Piper161, Piper Pa 28-R200, a helicopter and a Cessna Bird Dog. Pride, who was discharged from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1945, is a longtime member of the Canadian Pilots and Owners Association. He’s taken kids flying for over 12 years with COPA and an event sponsored by an American flying group called Young Eagles. He plans to be flying at the

Teachers team up for band course Jantzen and Behenna invite students to join Delta Music Makers Junior Band

Long time Delta band teachers Margaret Behenna and Curt Jantzen are inviting any and all former students to join a night-school course called Delta Music Makers Junior Band. Only two years experience is necessary, and the

age range is 13 to adult, so anyone that took band for two years in the elementary programs, or in Behenna’s high school program at Delta Secondary, is welcome. Other members of the public are welcome too. “Do not be afraid,

nobody will be embarrassed,” says Jantzen. “Please dust off that instrument and come join us for a trial 10-week course. We will give you all the help needed to make those musical sounds once again.” A no-obligation get-

together will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. in the band room of Delta Secondary. It’s an opportunity to meet other likeminded folks and discuss the formation of the Delta Music Makers Junior Band. The course will actually begin two weeks later, running 10 weeks from Thursday, Oct. 4 to Thursday, Dec. 6. “We may divide the group by age if we get enough students,” says Behenna. “That is, we may have a group of youngsters and a group of older teens and adults if the numbers warrant it.” Behenna was a wellloved band teacher for many years at Delta Secondary. Thousands of students played music in her outstanding band program. Since her retirement in 2007, she has been working with Jantzen in the elementary schools of Ladner and North Delta, giving the gift of music to thousands of younger students. All former students of Jantzen and Behenna, and other members of the public, are invited to join this new venture, no matter how long the instrument has been put away, or how little

A bird’s eye view of regal Victoria

British Columbia’s capital city is picturesque, particularly from the air BY

JANE CASSIE

Optimist contributor

Swanky yachts and regal schooners skim the sunglinted waves below. They unite with ocean-going kayaks, speedy dragon boats and other pleasure vessels that share their hulls with the seaside. Framed by a rugged coastline and backed by powdered peaks, it’s a setting that’s picturesque to a fault and truly epitomizes the axiom, Super Natural British Columbia. Although there are plenty of ways to check out Victoria’s scenic sites, during this visit with my daughter we enjoy a couple of the more adventuresome options, and this one comes with a bird’s eye view. After briefly surfing the Pacific, our DeHavilland Beaver rises to this occasion and over the next 30 minutes we share the sunny skies with soaring eagles. Cooper Air’s aviator, Mick,

doubles as an informative guide and while navigating the seaplane he provides a running commentary of the attractions below. “The promenade is a great place to check out the activities,” he explains as we pass over the bustling hub. Although briefly interrupted by Johnson Street Bridge, the walkway encircles the inner harbour where the colourful past integrates delightfully with the present. Streets are dressed with bouquets and Kabuki Kabs, Cinderella horse-drawn carriages, and double-decker buses whisk time-rich vacationers to internationally-acclaimed tourist attractions. From our panoramic viewpoint we can visually trace the pedestrian causeway that leads to our temporary home away from home, the Laurel Point Inn. Snuggling up to her jetty perch she sparkles with contemporary sophistication

and melds harmoniously with Victoria’s Old World architecture. Our flight veers to the west and Mick shares historical tidbits along the way. “Fisguard is the oldest lighthouse on the West Coast,” he informs, while flying over Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Park. Although only accessible from the sea during its prime time, we can see that Ocean Boulevard now

winds its way around to this once vigilant beacon. Clusters of verdant evergreens border shimmering lakes, and a few minutes to the north, the Edwardianstyle Butchart Gardens come into view. While sprawling over 50 palatial acres, it hosts a number of theme gardens and provides a mantle of colour year round. We putter over patchwork farmlands, grey winding

highways and golf greens speckled with undulating plateaus. The highlight for my daughter is when we hover over the University of Victoria, and visit from above, not on foot as she did a few years ago. “There aren’t too many students who get to see their campus from this vantage point,” Mick chuckles, “and as you can see, it’s just a quick jaunt to the beach whenever the students need a break.” The strand of rocky shoreline is dotted with posh homes and washed continuously by gentle waves. Trillions of sparkles reflect off the sapphire waters and while buzzing closer to sea level we spot shimmering shadows, reminding us of the marine life that thrives just beneath. In my mind’s eye, I retrace the previous day’s activity when Cuda Marine Adventures provided a similar encounter, but from an entirely different viewpoint.

Our covered vessel had plied effortlessly along this same coastal waterway and, although shielded from headwinds and ocean spray, we enjoyed marine life sightings through surrounding windows. The majestic killer whales were like friends to our guide, but for us, their titles didn’t matter. It was their splendour that tweaked our curiosity and activated our zoom lenses. I shake myself out of the daydream just in time to get one last overview before our seaplane gently splashes down. Though our stay in Victoria is just about over, the little white aqua bus that transports us to the other side of the harbour reminds me there is one last adventure in store — the scenic ferry ride that will take us back home.

Stylish and sporty import provides buyers with far more than basic transportation DAVID CHAO & BOB MCHUGH

What’s fun, trendy, affordable and super exciting to drive these days? It’s the Fiat 500.

Small in stature yet big on personality, the 2012 Fiat 500 takes the commuter car to a new level of style and sophistication. The Cinquecento, as it’s known in its Italian home-

land, can seat four people in a cabin that offers excellent safety features and unique interiors in a variety of colour and trim combinations. The chance of seeing

two completely identical versions of the Fiat 500 parked together is remote as it’s offered in 14 exterior colours, five seat combinations and six wheel choices. You can also add acces-

The Fiat 500 is offered in 14 exterior colours, five seat combinations and six wheel choices. sory body graphic accents. It certainly has that something extra that makes it stand out in a crowd. The 500 also comes in two body styles — a hardtop (hatchback) and a convertible. The hardtop 500, which is the focus of this review, is offered in three trim levels: Pop ($15,995); Sport ($18,500); and Lounge ($19,500). There’s also a high-performance Abarth edition ($23,995). The 500c (convertible) comes in base Pop ($19,995) and Lounge ($22,995). Distinctive both inside and out, each trim level has a unique personality, which allows the 500 to attract a wide variety of buyers. Competitors also come in many forms, from out-andout commuters like Scion iQ and Smart ForTwo to the Mini Cooper or the Ford Fiesta or Mazda2. Good examples of a new breed of stylish small cars that offer more than just A-to-B transportation. The original Fiat 500, which dates back to 1957, came with a 0.5-litre engine in the rear. In the new 500, a sophisticated 1.4-litre MultiAir engine drives the front wheels and it can be coupled with either a fivespeed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The MultiAir engine technology includes hydraulic actuated intake valves controlled by fast-responding, electronic solenoids. The high level of control of the air-fuel mix entering each combustion chamber improves both engine efficiency and power. Fiat clams this system achieves both a 10 per cent power and fuel efficiency improvement, while at the same time decreasing CO2

emissions by up to 10 per cent. It also claims that with a full (40-litre) tank of fuel the 500 can be driven about 780 kilometres on the highway. Mind you, the fuel of choice is the more costly premium type. The 500 is sold through selected Chrysler dealerships, which have separate Fiat showrooms. The North American version of the Fiat 500 is made in Mexico. THE LOOKS According to Fiat, approximately 60 per cent of all Fiat 500 buyers are male. My unscientific observations, however, don’t concur. “It’s adorable” and “cute” were compliments its many female admirers seemed to use within my earshot. The males were largely silent, but perhaps they were secret admirers. My test 500 was a black Lounge edition, which looked unexpectedly elegant as this trim level comes with more chrome trim than all the others. Door handles, side mirrors, bumpers and even the licence plate garnish all came with the “bling” treatment. Nice little style detail was the 500 emblem inside the headlight assembly. THE INSIDE My test 500 was equally refined on the inside and had grey leather upholstery and chrome trim features. Its glossy black exterior colour also showed up inside on the dash panel. It’s a nice nostalgic style feature reminiscent of the old metal dash panels. The driver instrument pod is small and also had a retro look to it, but it’s a little crowded. See FIAT page 27

The Fiat 500 comes in two body styles — a hardtop (hatchback) and a convertible.

Leather upholstery and chrome trim give a refined look.

FIAT from page 26 A digital readout, a tachometer and a speedometer were all housed in the small gauge pod in front of the driver. The dials are a little tricky to figure out at first, however, owner-drivers will probably get use to this fairly quickly. Unlike some of its competitors, the 500 actually has a decent-size trunk, even with the rear seats in place. Legroom for rear seat occupants is basically at the discretion of front seat occupants, and the round head restraints on all the seats are interesting and distinctive design element. SAFETY The 500 comes standard with seven airbags (including a driver’s knee airbag) and it received a top rating in European crash tests. It also comes standard with a host of safety features, including electronic stability and traction control. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also gave the 2012 Fiat 500, made after July 2011, a “top safety pick” rating. However, a structural problem with the driver’s seat, in models made before this date, caused it to have a lower rating. THE DRIVE The manual seat cushion height adjustment on my test 500 didn’t seem to function as it should. Combined with a lower roof height caused by an optional sunroof, headroom was limited, an issue I didn’t have with 500c that I drove last year. That said, it’s still a clev-

erly designed cabin that makes the most of the space available. My test 500 came with the five-speed manual transmission. The shift lever is on a pedestal that extends out from the centre of the dash and is positioned handily to the steering wheel. The short throws on the shift pattern were easy to navigate and gear engagement had a nice solid feel, even though it’s a remote cable-type setup. The clutch pedal action was on the light side and its engagement smooth, making it easy to use. Acceleration to 100 km/h was timed at 12.3 seconds at the Canadian Car of the Year evaluation event, but it seems faster when you’re inside a 500. For comparison, the Honda Civic sedan at the same event was clocked at 9.9 seconds to 100 km/h. The 500 is still a fun car to drive because of its brisk off-the-line performance and uniquely agile handling qualities. Its lightweight, impish driving manners are very appealing and parking a 500 is ridiculously easy, making it a terrific city runabout. There’s also a Sport button on the dash that when pushed changes steering feel and engine tuning. The steering tightens and the engine responds a little faster. While not dramatic, it certainly adds to the driving experience. THE SCORE Italian styling flair combines with advanced

B.C. Lions star receiver Geroy Simon looks on his Cloverdale Bobcats battled the South Delta Rams in Vancouver Mainland Football League Pee Wee Division action last Sunday at Dennison Park. The CFL’s all-time leading pass catcher has been coaching the Bobcats for the past five seasons. His son Jaden is a key member of the team.

Brito leads Ice Hawks to opening night win MARK BOOTH

On a night when the Delta Ice Hawks had 13 newcomers in their line-up, it was still some familiar names that dominated the scoresheet. The defending Pacific International Junior Hockey League champions opened the 2012/13 season Tuesday with a 4-2 home ice victory over the North Delta Devils. Anthony Brito, who was among the standouts during last spring’s playoff run, picked up right where he left off, scoring twice and setting up the other two. Delta took a 2-0 advantage into the third period when the Devils rallied to pull even and came very close to beating goaltender Scott Lapp on a couple of more occasions to take the lead. When it looked like the visitors might just get some revenge for last season’s heartbreaking seven game playoff series loss, Tanner Gattinger broke the deadlock with 4:34 remaining. South Delta product Michael Olson-Eyre then iced the win with his first ever PIJHL goal into the empty net after a nifty flip pass from Brito to complete his big night. The 20-year-old centre has had little time to catch his breath after spending the summer playing in the B.C. Junior

Ice Hawks Michael Olson-Eyre battles with North Delta Devils Ben Vikich during Tuesday’s 4-2 home ice win.

“A” Lacrosse League with the Coquitlam Adanacs. His season ended Aug. 26 when the Adanacs lost in the Minto Cup finals to Ontario’s Orangeville Northmen. By that time, the Ice Hawks’ training camp was well underway. “We told Anthony to take all the time he wanted before coming back,” said Ice Hawks head coach Dave McLennan. “But he wanted to be here and was excited to be back. That’s just the type of guy he is.” Brito is one of the team’s assistant captains, along with returning veterans Ryan Cuthbert and Kody Botterhill. Third-year blueline standout Alex Martin is the team’s captain and responded to his expanded leadership role with a pair of assists. The Ice Hawks were playing without returning forwards Grange Gordon and Aaron Merrick. Delta travels to Abbotsford tonight to face the Pilots in a rematch of last year’s PIJHL finals. Although the Ice Hawks managed to win that series, the Pilots went on to capture the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial championship as the host team. They then travelled to Saskatoon and won the Keystone Cup Western Canadian championship. becoming the fourth B.C. team to pull off the feat in 10 years. The Ice Hawks next home game is Tuesday when the Squamish Wolf Pack visit Ladner at 7:30 p.m.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Answer communications from others. Get all the paperwork and niggling chores done,as Saturday (the 22nd) begins a month of important events, especially around your home, children and security. You get a preview of that month ahead Sunday/ Monday, as the upcoming themes of kids, security, etc. “visit” you briefly (and bring luck in background, intimate and government-related zones). Romance, pleasure and beauty call Tuesday/Wednesday. Tackle chores Thursday onward. All week (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday) you face relationship change and some stress in career or neighbourhood status. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Keep chasing money. You might experience some disruptions this week, but they’re probably small compared to the upheavals or challenges others face. Still, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday will disrupt employment plans or health situations. Be very safety conscious with machinery and electricity. (DON’T buy machinery any day/time before 6 p.m. Thursday.) Friends and loved ones (a particular loved one) might be suffering a moral or career dilemma. Otherwise, Sunday/ Monday bring friends, information, travel. Home sweet home midweek. Romance, pleasure blossom Thursday night, Friday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue high – though disruptions might undercut new starts. (All week, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, beware sudden disruptions founded on long, semi-hidden and deep communication problems in sexual and financial zones. Drive carefully.) Chase money, buy/sell, seek new clients or a pay raise Sunday/Monday. Trips, errands, paperwork, media and casual friends fill Tuesday/Wednesday. Turn your attention to home, family, Mother Nature, security and retirement plans Thursday/Friday. Romance speaks (though testily) Saturday p.m.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: It’s your last week of work, boredom and health bothers. Just plunge in and get it done during this productive week. The only thing to watch for is a reputational or career glitch, probably involving your reaction to someone, or a high tech snafu (Sunday p.m., Tuesday night, or Thursday) – this glitch could turn to an explosion if you lose your temper or taunt someone. A month of crucial relationships and fresh horizons, opportunities and opposition, begins Saturday. This area has been rather dismal since 2010 – but by Oct. 5 the chains drop off, the barriers dissolve! Taurus April 20-May 20: This is your last week of romance for awhile, so take advantage. Beauty, pleasure, adventure, fine creative urges – these are yours still. But avoid all unsavory involvements – gossip, secret affairs and attractions, etc. – and dealings with the government, institutions, charities or big corporate head offices. The former group is obvious – you won’t get away with anything. The latter (government, etc.) will tend to work against your ethics/wisdom, or a legal barrier prevents success. Let education, law, far travel and philosophy trump those secret or “government” things. Gemini May 21-June 20: Six days remain of property or rental negotiations, repairs, gardening, kid-nurturing and such basic things. Usually September brings a sweet rest, but this time you’ve been busy – and happily so. By Saturday, a month of romance, creativity, beauty, pleasure, games and successful speculation begins. All these have been sober, unrewarding since 2010 – but Oct. 5 ends the lead blanket – soon, life’s pleasures will truly be yours! Earlier, though (Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday) be prepared for conflict between your hopes, friendship goals, and monetary, health or sexual realities.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Relationship stresses arise this week, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Your home or children – or your security or retirement situation – is at the root of the problem. You might need to make ongoing adjustments in these areas now to 2018. Be careful in traffic all week. At least, on Sunday/Monday, and for an entire month beginning Saturday (the 22nd) you have “clout” on your side – boosted energy, charisma and decisiveness. Home, family and real estate matters that have gone in circles since April finally go forward now – success will require sacrifice. Nap frequently. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Lie low, rest, research and deal with government Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charisma soar upward Tuesday/ Wednesday. Chase money or make wise purchases Thursday/Friday. Run errands, communicate Saturday afternoon. All week, your mood will be hopeful and cheerful. You’ll enjoy friends, enjoy entertainment, and flirt with your loved one. But this week also confronts you with some disruptions, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. These days highlight your job and/or your health, communications, and head office or government agencies: be cautious in these, make adjustments. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: All week, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, money, earnings and possessions will conflict with your friendship, group, romantic, creative and pleasure goals. This month, romance, etc., will tend to disappoint or restrict you, while now and in future, the practical, the money side, will probably win – so cast your vote and efforts in that direction. These struggles/disruptions aside, this is a strongly ambitious week – so work hard, display your skills to higher-ups. Sunday/Monday are flirty, friendly, and hopeful. Rest midweek. Your energy surges Thursday onward.

Sept. 16 - 22, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: This is a sweet week, filled with understanding, compassion, and love for others. Far travel, cultural events, higher education, publishing and legal affairs are favoured. But a series of stresses or disruptions do attack your domestic and career zones, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday – these disruptions might actually be caused by your own strong viewpoint, stand or actions. So you have a choice: push things and watch them rebel, or be more receptive, co-operative, and sidestep conflict. However, now or later you’ll have to push, for your “dream goals” are at stake. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: This week’s conflicts involve others and only strike you indirectly. Still, disruptions can arise in background areas (with government, institutions, charities or “head office”) in communications and travel, and in legal, learning or cultural situations. Drive carefully while tensions distract you, especially Sunday,Tuesday and Thursday. Otherwise, Sunday to Friday brings changes, secrets, investment opportunities, and sexual urges. These can be lucky or productive early Monday morning (love) Wednesday (power, finances) and late Thursday into Friday (joys, wish fulfillment). Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Relationships fill your days – with deep, mysterious urges Sunday/Monday, gentle understanding and “abstract love” Tuesday/ Wednesday, and power plays (ambition) Thursday to Saturday. Disruptions can occur in money, earning and spending zones, social interactions, and deeper, financial and sexual areas – especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Don’t buy computers or other high tech items Sunday through 6 p.m. (PDT) Thursday. This isn’t the best week to ask for a pay raise, either. Approach the boss with an “equity” or similar proposal Friday. Saturday begins a month of secrets. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-560-1269
