Regional count

Homeless teen numbers alarming Preliminary figures released Tuesday indicate the number of people living on the street locally is rising.

Caring Place advocates Cathy Cornelissen, Mike Schroeder, and Connie McGonigal all work with Maple Ridge’s homeless every day. They endeavour to get as many people off the streets and healthy, as possible. But the memory walls in their offices remind them – and visiting clients – that not everyone can be saved. Cornelissen, who was on the local streets and using crystal meth herself eight short years ago, said she offers unconditional love and support to everyone who comes through her door.

There’s a wall riddled with dozens of names and pictures of Maple Ridge’s homeless who have died since the Caring Place shelter first opened its doors eight years ago. But for every one of the local men and women who have been lost, there are literally hundreds who have turned their lives around and are off the streets today thanks to assistance from the Salvation Army’s Caring Place shelter. Client advocate Cathy Cornelissen was one of the first, and for the past seven years now she’s been reaching out to help others on the local streets. Tears welling up in her eyes, she showed off her memory wall Wednesday, following the release of a preliminary 2011 Metro Vancouver Homeless Count, which shows numbers of indigent people currently living on the streets is rising locally. Caring Place executive director Kathie Chiu said the numbers constantly go up and down, depending on the time of the year, the economy, and many other societal factors. But admittedly, she said, she’s noticed a slight decrease in the numbers of people coming in to the downtown Haney shelter since 2008. “We kind of knew this,” she said, looking over the draft report that says Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have seen an 18per-cent drop in adult homeless going into shelters during the past three years. When the shelter was first being proposed for Maple Ridge, the local community was banding around homeless figures in the 200 ball park. But these counts, Chiu said, give a more true, and realistic picture of the local numbers. This count, while only a snapshot taken one day in mid-March, shows the overall number “in shelters” homeless in Maple Ridge are down, from 50 during the last count in 2008 to 41 now. But those who are not in shelters has apparently risen locally, from 40 in 2008, to 61 this time around. While the 53 per cent jump might be alarming to some, especially given the existence of a local homeless shelter, Chiu said that’s not the figure worrying her. The adult numbers, admittedly, show a jump overall from 90 in 2008 to 102 this year. But that can be attributed to several

ness in the future.” Youth homelessness has been a topic of discussion by many service providers and politicians across the country for years, but Chiu said society has to move past the talking stage and act quickly, or pay a giant price. “If we were sticking around, that would probably have been my next project,” said Chiu, who is credited with creating the local adult facility that provides a 25-bed year-round shelter, a cold-wet weather shelter, and 15 long-term beds. “We’ve seen a lot of successes,” added Chiu, who – along with her husband Ed – will be leaving early next month for another larger Salvation Army care centre in London, Ont. Over the years, she said proudly, the majority of people who have turned to the Caring Place are no longer homeless. Admittedly, a number of them have died, some are in jail, and a few have moved elsewhere. But Chiu boasted, a majority have gone through rehabilitation and are living “stable lives” in the community, staying clean and sober and not on the streets.

HST cut, help for families proposed

What’s OnLine

Rave suspect in court Dennis John Allen Warrington, a 19year-old from Langley – who also has strong ties to Maple Ridge – is charged with producing and distributing child pornography. He appeared in court on May 24, and will appear again one week later, on May 31, for an application for warrant. He is charged in connection to the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl last September at a rave in Pitt Meadows. The other adult man connected to the rave appeared in court on March 17, and will be back early next year for his trial. Colton Ashton McMorris, 18, of Maple Ridge, is charged with sexual assault. His trial is set to begin in Port Coquitlam on Feb. 27, 2012, and is scheduled for three weeks. • More online at, click on “News”

The local anti-HST group still opposing the sales tax. by Maria Rantanen

The harmonized sales tax will be reduced, cheques sent to families and seniors, and the provincial corporate tax rate will go up – if British Columbians vote to keep the HST in the

upcoming referendum, the provincial government announced on Wednesday. All families with children under the age of 18 will receive “transition funding” of $175 per child by the end of this year. Seniors whose income is under $40,000 will also receive $175. This will be one-time transition funding to tide families over till the HST is cut next year. The HST will be reduced to 11 per cent in July 2012, and to 10

per cent in 2014. “This new plan really benefits low-income families,” said Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton. The corporate income tax will rise from 12 per cent from its current 10 per cent to coincide with the federal corporate tax cut of two per cent. Local anti-HST organizer Corisa Bell said her group will still campaign against the tax. “The announcement doesn’t

A 19-year-old man and a young offender allegedly beat the teenager with an undisclosed weapons during some kind of disagreement, Ridge Meadows RCMP are reporting. Mounties were called to a residential complex on Ford Road in Pitt Meadows just before 1:30 a.m., where they discovered the beaten victim, but no sign of the suspects.

change anything because we didn’t ask them to lower [the HST], we asked them to cancel it,” Bell said. The government estimates with a 10 per cent HST rate, B.C. families will pay $120 less tax than under the PST, compared to an increase of $350 a year that was estimated by the Independent Panel on the HST.

Hammond school receives money for breakfast Breakfast Television donated $1,000 to Hammond Elementary’s breakfast club.

by Maria Rantanen

A full belly helps kids focus at school and learn better. Hammond Elementary tries to promote healthy bodies, active minds, and happy hearts, said the school’s principal Leslie Langford. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, Langford added, but the school’s breakfast club, which runs five days a week, is about more than just filling

hungry bellies. “It’s more about the culture we build with the kids,” she said. “If you’re having a bad morning, you’re feeling a lot better [after breakfast club].” Hammond Elementary received a cheque on Wednesday morning for $1,000 from Breakfast Television to support their breakfast program as part of the television show’s Be There for Schools program. The school’s parent advisory council applied for the $1,000 grant, and it will be added to the funds already provided by the Ministry of Education program. The PAC also contributed $500. PAC chair Dean Hajum said the program

allows students to concentrate on school and not their empty stomachs. “A good nutritious meal will go a long way,” he said. Getting the extra $1,000 means the school can provide more nutritional food for the children, Langford said. On average, about 20 students show up to have breakfast at the school. “We support families who need help stretching a dollar,” said Tory Flavin, a child care worker at Hammond who runs the program. Flavin said the connections kids make in the breakfast program across grades continues on the playground.

Police blotter

Couple carjacked near Blacksheep Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for two men who stole a car on Tuesday afternoon. by Amy Judd

A man and a woman were forced from their car by two men in the middle of the afternoon this week. Although they are badly shaken, they were not seriously injured. Ridge Meadows RCMP were called to the 12900 block of 232 Street (near the Blacksheep Pub) at about 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, where the couple said they were carjacked. The suspect who drove off is described as being possibly native

or East Indian, and is in his 20s. He was wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt, and a black hat, and had some facial hair, looking somewhat like a goatee. His partner is a Caucasian man in his 20s, with a large muscular build, and is described as being quite tall. He has short brown hair, and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. Police are continuing to investigate, looking for the car, which is a black 2000 Mazda Protege, fourdoor sedan, with a British Columbia licence plate 238 SGV.

Counterfeit ring busted

A man and a woman were arrested last week in Pitt Meadows for an alleged counterfeiting and identity

theft operation. Ridge Meadows RCMP say a number of local citizens have been the victim of a counterfeit ring that was busted last Friday morning. One suspect was already on probation for similar offences dating back to 2008. “This is a very significant arrest,” said RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh. “Identity theft, and the related offences of producing counterfeit currency, and mail theft is a real problem in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.” Police found and seized a number of items, including blank cheques, stolen mail, and various pieces of identification.

‘Old gym’ demolished ‘Problematic’ building plagued District of Maple Ridge for years, but no more. by Maria Rantanen

A neglected building on 224th Street was demolished last week after council decided in April it had to go. The decision by Maple Ridge council was unanimous that it had to be demolished, said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie

Daykin, with a “let’s get it done” attitude. He noted the building had been “problematic” for more than five years. In November 2008, an unauthorized marijuana growing operation was removed from the basement of the structure. In June 2010 and again in March, the fire department and building, plumbing/ gas, and electrical inspectors reviewed the building and recommended action be taken to remove the building, which was deemed unsafe.

Our View

Tax cut just a smokescreen Isn’t there a law against bribery? Apparently not when it’s a political exercise aimed at covering up blunders. British Columbia’s provincial government has announced that the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) will be cut by two percentage points, from the current 12 per cent down to 10 per cent, by July 1, 2014… IF B.C. voters agree not to discard the controversial – and highly unpopular – tax in the upcoming mail-in referendum… IF the current government is still in power by the time July 1, 2014, rolls around… And IF the government doesn’t decide that it can’t afford to cut its tax base and must postpone the reduction until better economic times. Let’s face it, we’re having an HST (many would call it an “anti-HST”) referendum next month precisely because most of the folks still making the decisions in Victoria can’t be trusted to be honest with us about their intentions. It’s plain our government was less than honest with us about the HST at the outset. Plans to implement the tax were hidden from public view, when they weren’t masked by outright lies. That dishonesty is why Christy Clark is now premier of B.C., instead of Gordon Campbell. And that dishonesty is the chief underpinning for opposition to the HST. Knocking two percentage points off the tax is unlikely to take the bad taste out of the mouths of B.C. residents who were forced to eat it in the first place. What happens if the HST is killed? For instance, how do we repay the federal government’s $1.6 billion bribe to implement the HST? And if the HST is cut to 10 per cent, what is the real remaining cost to taxpayers? Unfortunately, the current government’s attempt at bribery will only put up a smokescreen around the issue of whether or not the HST should be abandoned in the June 24 referendum (actually more like a mail-in survey). It will serve to remind voters of the dishonesty that brought us the tax in the first place, instead of helping us focus on the real pros and cons of keeping or discarding the HST. – B.G.

Yours Truly


Animal welfare

Donations encouraged by one appreciative pet owner Dear Editor,

Our family wants to personally thank Dr. Michael Orser and his wonderful staff for saving our black Lab, Paxton, from near death. It was the Easter long weekend and Paxton severely cut his paw/leg on a broken mason jar. Paxton and I were en route to the emergency facility in Langley, but I knew Paxton wouldn’t make that drive with the blood loss he was experiencing. Not being a regular customer of Alouette Animal Hospital, I was hesitant to call. But, I made the call and they told me to bring A cut to Paxton’s leg was so severe he was not expected to make it, but his Paxton in immediately. family credits staff at Alouette Animal Hospital for saving him. We arrived and the staff After IV, surgery to repair a severed came out and got Paxton tendon, pain medication, and general out of the car and into their facility, terrific care, Paxton came home the next where he collapsed on the floor in the morning. hallway. We can not thank Dr. Orser and his The staff were so knowledgeable, staff enough for the absolutely wonderful efficient, friendly, helpful, caring, and care and attention that not only Paxton understandable. I knew immediately that received, but me too! Paxton was in good hands. After reading the articles about Elmo in the TIMES, and seeing the success Reaction of Elmo living life on three legs, it just reinforces how Alouette Animal Hospital truly care about people and their pets. I encourage all pet lovers to donate to The Jackson Fund at Alouette Animal Hospital [a fund designed to help financially disadvantaged pet owners cover emergency vet costs]. Dear Editor,

Grateful for the polio message

With reference to Bob Groeneveld’s column [We’re all in this world together, May 10, Opinion, TIMES], thank you for drawing attention to the need to eradicate diseases like polio from the planet. While we in our culture take no notice of polio any longer, this debilitating disease continues to ravage millions in Third World nations. The most ominous aspect of this is – as you point out – some legislators and dictators in far-off lands continue to believe that vaccines may be a Western-world conspiracy against their nation, culture or race. They deny their children the right to protection. While we may think this is of no interest to us, consider the potential of refugees and immigration from these countries to Canada. Consider the implications of “the bug” in our community. It must also be pointed out that many of our citizens live with Post Polio Sequela, the late-in-life effects of having endured polio in their childhood. To that end, if your readers had polio in younger years, or know of parents or friends who had polio and are having undiagnosed medical issues presently, there is support and information available to them through the Post Polio Awareness and Support Society (PPASS), with local chapters in all regions of British Columbia. For contacts in the region concerning post polio information, email sonrise@, or if schools would like to be involved in better understanding polio, they can contact

Bob Brett, PPASS coordinator

Lisa Matheson, on behalf of Paxton and the Matheson family

I agree with Ms. Cherryl Katnich [Say ‘no’ to malls, April 19 Letters, TIMES] that yes, the addition of a shopping mall would create jobs. However, I believe that a large percentage of those jobs would be part-time that pay minimum wage – andf would not have medical/dental benefits, pension, or life insurance. While being constructed, it would more than likely provide full-time work for tradespeople. It would be beneficial for students and young adults entering the workforce. However, I am very concerned about the long-term effects. They create large amounts of garbage from cardboard boxes, solid waste from food courts, and plastic bags. Ms. Katnich also failed to mention that some of our local businesses could close. My letter from April 19 also stated that malls contribute to light pollution. As well, there would be a large rise in electrical consumption. So has this group gone from “Residents for Smart Shopping” to “Residents for Smart Shopping and Job Creation?” That’s quite a resume.

Organizers are hoping for a hot day again this year.

Pitt Meadows Day

Mounties bring tank to parade

Plans are in full swing for the biggest party of the year on June 4. by Amy Judd

Many returning favourites with a few new surprises thrown in are on the boards for Pitt Meadows Day, set to kick off at 7 a.m. in early June. “We have been told that the RCMP are bringing their armoured personnel carrier and a horse,” said spokesperson Richard Keltie. Groups and volunteers are already working hard to ensure the day will be as successful as those that came before. One of the highlights of the day is always the parade, and Keltie said about 10,000 people turn out to watch all the entries and floats pass by. Last year, more than 70 floats were

involved, with about 1,000 people. Usually about 18,000 people from all over the Lower Mainland attend the full day of festivities. “Returning favourites will include the Katzie in their canoe, clowns from Pitt Meadows fire department, pipe bands, and dance academies,” said Keltie, adding that his favourite parts of the day are the parade and salmon barbecue. Of course, this day could not happen without many volunteers donating their time, and more are still needed. Anyone interested can contact Lianne Shaw at The events kick off at 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, with the Pitt Meadows Lions Club pancake breakfast, followed by the parade at 11 a.m. (running from Blakely and Hammond Roads, west on Hammond Road and north on Harris Road), and much more the rest of the day.

Joe Robinsmith and his son Colton both write poetry.

Maria Rantanen/TIMES


Country inspires poetry

A Ridge poet asked his 16-year-old son to contribute to his first book. by Maria Rantanen

Local poet, writer, and full-time electrician. Joe Robinsmith’s computer hard drive crashed eight years ago, and he lost 22 chapters of a novel he was writing. “I was so devastated, I stopped writing for two years,” he said. His son, Colton, who’s 16, writes his poetry on his phone – that also crashed recently in the middle of a poem. Despite the technological setbacks, father and son have kept writing and Joe’s poetry book Heartsongs from a Cowboy’s Soul includes poems by both. Joe has included his poetry from the last six years, inspired by love, life, and relationships. But the backdrop to his poetry is a childhood spent in B.C. cowboy country. Joe spent his formative years on a farm without a lot of modern amenities – his parents wanted to “get back to the land.” He learned to work hard on the land. But he was also given a lot of freedom to explore the countryside. Sometimes wild horses would come through and his father would rope one and throw him onto the back of the horse and let him ride. He also spent a lot of

time riding his dirt bike with friends on forestry roads and through the mountains. “There were a lot of good times,” he said. Joe’s family moved back to the Lower Mainland when he was a teen and he settled with his own family in Maple Ridge in 1992. The next year, Joe ran for council as he wanted to get involved in the community. When he lost, he got some advice that has stayed with him. “Candace Gordon pulled me aside after [the election] and said if you want to get involved, volunteer,” Joe said. Joe did volunteer on various local boards, and now, through his writing, he’d like to do something locally to help young people get writing. When he was putting his book together, he asked his son Colton to contribute. Joe said when he read Colton’s poetry, he was blown away by what his “quiet and deep” son had written. “His poetry really gets inside your head and makes you think,” Joe said. Joe is working on a collaborative poetry book with 22 poets from around the world whom he’s met through his blogging and other online forums. Joe Robinsmith will be signing copies of his Book Heartsongs from a Cowboy’s Soul at Black Bond Books in Haney Place Mall on May 28, from 12 to 1 p.m.


The City of Pitt Meadows Public Works Department will be flushing water mains throughout the municipality for approximately twelve weeks beginning March 21, 2011. During this time there may be a temporary drop in water pressure or a noticeable discolouration in tap water. To correct problems with milky water, open the cold tap slightly to bleed air from the water lines. If you experience problems with dirty water, turn on an outside tap and let it run until the water clears. The City thanks residents for their patience during this routine maintenance of the water mains. If there are any questions or concerns please call 604-465-2434.

and are monitored by shelter staff.

include information from the survey done during the homeless count. This will include information like where homeless people are from, what their source of income is, their gender, health, and marital status. Sundberg said the overall regional numbers show that “we might actually be getting a handle on this homelessness issue.”

Westview pupil goes to cowboy camp

A local resident received the chance of a lifetime to advance his skiing career in late April. by Amy Judd

Ryan Patience still seems to be in shock that he was picked as one of 12 skiers to train with members of the Canadian ski team last month. The 16-year-old Westview student, who is a member of the Vancouver ski team, attended Mike and Manny’s Cowboy Camp in Whistler, an experience he said he will remember forever. “It’s for ski racers who have the finances to do ski racing, but don’t have enough to do all the camps,” Patience said. This year the fourth annual cowboy camp was held April 25 to 30, and all 12 participants were put up in a house in Whistler, and learn from some of the best skiers in the country. “Manny’s [Osborne-Paradis] mom cooked us breakfast and lunch,” said Patience, describing the homey and relaxing atmosphere. The camp was started by Alpine ski team members Mike Janyk and Osborne-Paradis, and is supported by other team members. For instance, this year fellow team member Robbie Dickson came out for the camp. It started in 2006 as a bursary program by Osborne-Paradis called the Get-Up-And-Go Award, sponsoring two skiers. The next year he was joined by Janyk and together they sponsored four skiers. After a lot of support they were able to expand the program to hold a camp every year in an effort to help aspiring skiers realize their dreams without additional costs. There is no fee to attend the camp, and once accepted, all the skiers have to do is get to Whistler with their equipment. Patience was one of the lucky ones chosen, and he was able to work on his downhill racing skills, such as slalom, Super G (super giant slalom), and giant slalom. “I like Super G,” said Patience. “I just find it kind of fun.”

Ryan Patience worked on his line for much of the Cowboy Camp at Whistler, saying he was so excited to spend a week with some members of the Canadian national ski team.

He was able to not only interact with other aspiring skiers during the week, but worked with Janyk, Osborne-Paradis, and Dickson on his line (meaning the way that he skis a course). “Where we’re turning above and below the gate,” he explained. “I got my line better, which improved everything.” Patience has been skiing for

about 14 years, but he knows he has a lot of training to do if he wants to make it to the level of his idols. He’d like to make the national team one day, “but it’s really hard,” he said. Patience wouldn’t trade the experiences of skiing for anything else, despite the cost and the high-level of competition his sport

brings. In fact, his week at cowboy camp just spurred him on to do more and try harder. “Robbie Dickson, Mike and Manny, they’re so nice. They’re not stuck up about being good.” Patience will now continue to hone his skills on the downhill courses and remember all that he learned during his intense week of training.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead emphasize quietude, contemplation, solitude, lowered energy, particularly this Wednesday/ Thursday. Despite this, however, your social and optimistic side remains strong – especially Sunday to Tuesday. Your psychic and spiritual side emerges – so, hopefully, does your charitable side. This is a good time to contemplate your plans for the future, especially Sunday to Tuesday. June 4 begins 12 months of increased socializing, especially in your work environment. You might not feel the full effect of this until your birthday onward. Your energy bounces back Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The emphasis lies on wish fulfillment, social delights, light, friendly romance, optimism, the joy of living! Be ambitious Sunday to Tuesday. Soon (Saturday) you begin 12 months of super career luck. You’ll find bosses, parents and VIPs are more open to your ideas, willing to give you a boost up the ladder. Your creative, romantic and pleasure-loving side can help promote you and your ambitions. Midweek’s for social joys, entertainment and romance. Issue invitations. But retreat Friday/ Saturday – conditions are unstable Friday. Humour a “pushy” higher-up – until late June. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks ahead bring pressure to perform and opportunities to enhance your status or prestige. Your career, relations with higher-ups and ambitions will occupy you. Until June 21, you might invest in a foreign country or international fund, etc. For this same three weeks, avoid legal hassles. Pay attention to Sunday through Tuesday – days when your mind will naturally drift toward the “larger questions,” toward international events, higher learning, compassion for all, and gentle love. This entire zone will be very luckily brought into prominence this June to next (2012).

Aries March 21 - April 19: Letters, emails, reports, short literature, calls, visits, short trips, errands, paperwork – these fill your life, especially midweek. The week is busy but not terribly important. Money themes continue, mostly good ones. Money might really rush toward you now to June 21 – but beware, you could spend it just as swiftly, or spend even more than comes. Bank it, be tight-fisted! Saturday (June 4) begins a year of grand money luck, especially in earnings and selling items. (Early hints of this Sunday/Monday, when all’s well in dollar-land.) Focus on home, children Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead feature money, earnings and spending, possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensuality. All these, by June 4 onward will “tweak” or more deeply, give birth to, significant and beneficial “heavy money” situations. Heavy money = investments, mortgages, financial partnerships, dealings with other people’s money, inheritance: generally any money that is big, shared and intended to grow. (E.g., a car will not grow in value, but land often does.) Your charm and magnetism soar Sunday/Monday: impress someone! Money, midweek – beware a false idea. Speak humbly Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Congratulate yourself – you’re on top, winning! Your energy and charisma are climbing (and will increase more next week). Impress someone, seek attention, start significant projects, tackle formerly daunting tasks. Rest and plan and deal with government or head office Sunday-Tuesday.Then plunge into brave action Tuesday eve to Thursday. You might need to choose between your personal drives and a career/reputation situation. Either choice is OK: base it on your stage of life. Be cautious with money Friday: spend Saturday. Saturday begins 12 months of relative quietude: be patient.

May 29 - June 4, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A mellow, understanding mood flows over you this week and the next two (especially this midweek). Study abstract subjects, religion, philosophy – any higher learning – or to write, travel afar or handle legal matters. You might meet love. Sunday to Tuesday contains mysteries – look beneath surface appearances. Your sexual and financial instincts awaken. It’s a superb time to go for a health diagnostic, change your lifestyle, or make a commitment. All these things (from mysteries to sex to finances) face huge luck from June 4 to mid-2012. Your life is about to change! Caution Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Late May and June draw you into life’s depths. Mysteries, secrets, large financial manoeuvres, investments, sexual urges, lifestyle commitments draw you, especially midweek. Study this area for a clue to fortunate action, projects in the year-long phase between June 2012 and July 2013. Until then, though, play this area lightly. (Actually, if you’re planning that far ahead, mark July/August of 2012 as “highly questionable.”) Your true luck, for the immediate 12 months ahead, begins this Saturday: you’ll find it in relationships of every stripe. You might relocate, or marry! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on relationships, relocation, agreements, contracts, negotiation, opportunities, competition, challenge, opposition, litigation, especially midweek. You’ll receive the positive side of these if you’re diplomatic, eager to please and a team-player. The negative needs no explanation. But one note: in general, it’s better not to vigorously pursue either side, now to August 2012. A Gemini might play a key role. You’ll accomplish a lot of work Sunday/Monday. Work will expand strongly now to mid-2012. Learn to relax! Invest or offer intimacy Saturday, NOT Friday!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Lots of work faces you, especially midweek, when a new chore could begin. Better plunge in these few weeks, as a major romantic, pleasure-oriented or “happy venture” phase begins very soon, and will last for 12 months. You’ll want to be relatively free of restricting duties by then. (In late June, a powerful relationship influence starts, bringing romantic urges to a tempting climax.) In fact, this romantic phase has already started, in minor ways. Sunday to Tuesday contain some tantalizing urges! Careful with relationships Friday. One affair might end, another start – soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature romance, creativity, pleasure, vacation, sports and games and successful risks. Something might start in a very small way in these areas midweek – something that can grow in future. But a lot of emphasis remains in your area of home, domesticity, security and children (especially early week). You have to avoid friction or sharp words here (or anywhere near a cafe or kitchen – watch cuts and burns, too) through June 20. On June 4, a year of luck begins in these areas: home, children, real estate, retirement, new beginnings. A new home? Caution Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The emphasis lies on your home, security, children, nourishment, on Mother Nature, retirement, endings and beginnings. A minor new phase or project might begin in these areas midweek. Usually this phase (late May to late June) creates a restful, sluggish mood designed to give you a mid-year rejuvenation. But this time a lot of errands, trips, visits, calls and paperwork keep you busy. June 4 starts a year in which your career will involve a lot of running around and communicating. Romance disappoints Friday, flows smoothly Saturday. One met before Friday isn’t compatible. • Reading: 416-686-5014
