Theatres are all about comfort BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

Landmark Cinemas may not be able to change the outcome of movies, to make them funnier or scarier, but it’s striving to create the ultimate experience for moviegoers. The Calgary-based company is opening its newest theatres May 11 in New Westminster, a 10-screen complex at the Plaza at New Westminster Station. All totalled, the theatres will have 1,850 seats – big seats that lean backwards. “Comfort,” said Neil Campbell about the seats that lean back in all 10 theatres. “It’s all about the customers. We have it in some others, but this is the first time we have done it in every seat in the whole theatre.” Campbell, who is a partner and chief operating officer for Landmark Cinemas, said seating is an important part of the movie-going experience. “These are all wider seats. They are good and wide and lots of legroom,” he said. “I’m 6-2 – I like good and wide, with lots of legroom to be put in our theatres.” Before moviegoers make it to their seats, they’ll encounter some services that haven’t been offered previously in New Westminster theatres. “The screens are very different. They wrap around at the ends so you have as much exposure on the screen as you can in a theatre this size,” said Fran Holy, the company’s director of marketing and communications. “We have ultra comfortable rocking seats. They lean back so that you can enjoy yourself – not enough so you throw your popcorn back. They lean back, they are very comfortable. I think what most people are excited about is the reserved seating.” When the theatres open,

Come May 17, they’ll also be able to reserve their seats when they purchase their tickets online, a service being offered at no additional cost. “With reserved seating you are not in a rush anymore. You have time to go to dinner, you have time to go to the concession,” Campbell said. “You

know when you walk in there, your seats are waiting.” Theatregoers will have several options available for purchasing tickets at the new cinemas; they can purchase them at automatic box offices, at a staffed box office or from the concession. “It’s one line,” Campbell said about purchasing tickets from the concessions. “It allows

the customer to do whatever they want to do.” With their tickets purchased, customers will then proceed to one of 10 theatres, all featuring stadium seating. The floating screens are curved and tilted in specific ways to provide the best picture quality possible. “It’s a lot of physics,” Campbell explained.

While New Westminster city council was voting to proceed with construction of an office tower at the city’s future civic centre, Coun. Betty McIntosh was enjoying a Hawaiian cruise. Had McIntosh been at the April 30 city council meeting, she would have voted against the city’s decision to borrow funds and use reserves to fund construction of an office tower. “I had opposed the city going alone,” she said about her stance on the decision. “I believe there could be a developer out there.” The city announced April 30 that it would proceed with construction of the office tower component of the new multi-use civic centre facility on Columbia Street. Although the Uptown Property Group had planned to build the office tower, it later withdrew from the project. The City of New Westminster will continue to explore opportunities to sell or lease the office space. McIntosh said she doesn’t want the city’s decision to develop the tower to quash interest in the project in the development community. “I think it sends a signal that the city is ready to do business on its own,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to discourage a developer.” McIntosh believes there is a great potential for Class A office space in New Westminster. “I am not that nervous or worried about it being leased out. I am not concerned about it being a positive project,” she said. “There is continuing work to find a partner. I believe we can find a

Family thinks someone swiped Sierra Missing Maltese may have been picked up – and they want her returned BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

A Queen’s Park family believes their two-and-half-pound toy Maltese may have been taken from their front yard on First Street. Laura Wright says her daughter Whitney’s tiny dog – named Sierra – ran out the front door on Saturday afternoon at around 2 p.m. The family’s carbon monoxide alarm was going off, and in the confusion, the small, white dog went outside. “The little Maltese probably had to piddle (and) went outside the door into the yard, and in the commotion we kind of missed the fact,” says Wright, whose home is across the street from Queen’s Park. “She’s really friendly, super friendly, so if you talk to her, she’d go running up, shaking her tail.” The family has had the dog for more than four years, and Sierra has never left the yard, Wright says. When the family realized the eight-yearold dog was missing, they put up posters. Someone texted them after seeing the posters and said they had seen an “Asian lady with a child pick up the dog.” “Then she walked up and asked a few people, ‘Is this your dog,’” says Wright. “Apparently, she didn’t have very good English, and she asked a few people is this your dog. The man that texted said he told her to phone the SPCA, but she hasn’t. She hasn’t called animal control. “It does seem really strange that she hasn’t seen one of the 200 posters we put up, checked on Craigslist or Kijiji,” Wright says. The women never knocked on the door, Wright says, adding, “Apparently she was driving. She wasn’t just walking.”

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Missing Sierra: Laura Wright and her daughter Whitney are looking for Sierra, Laura’s Maltese dog that they think was taken from the area around their home, close to Queen’s Park. The dog went missing on Saturday, May 5. Sierra didn’t have her collar on at the time she went missing. “You know what, I feel just sick about this, we had taken her collar off to give her a bath,” Wright says. “That was maybe just a little bit before.” The dog does have a microchip implant – implants are used to help track animals

when they get lost, but the veterinarian where the family had it done is no longer open. The family describes the dog as having a scruffy face and one tooth. Her tongue is “almost always hanging out.” “I’m kind of at a loss to figure out how to get the microchip,” Wright says. Sierra belongs to Wright’s 24-year-old

daughter. “My daughter and her are like glued at the hip,” Wright says. “She hasn’t slept without her for four-and-a-half years.” Anyone who has information about Sierra’s whereabouts can call 604-5214880 or 604-374-1215. Sierra has her own Facebook page called Sierra Wright.

City MP blasts Tories for ‘habitat’ change BY JENNIFER MOREAU REPORTER

The federal Conservatives have gone ahead with a move scientists have feared: removing the term “habitat” from a key section of the Fisheries Act. New Westminster–Coquitlam MP and fisheries critic Fin Donnelly was not surprised. “They have done what we suspected. They are weakening the Fisheries Act substantially,” Donnelly said. “I think this is going to have a huge impact on major projects in the country, certainly on the Enbridge pipeline, which crosses 800 to

1,000 streams.” The move was also no surprise to retired DFO biologist Otto Langer, who received leaked information in March that the Tories were secretly planning to remove habitat protection measures for fish. The proposed wording he received was almost identical to what appeared in Bill C-38. “Basically, they’ve gutted the habitat section of the Fisheries Act, and it’s going to be extremely difficult to protect fish habitat,” Langer said. “If you don’t protect the habitat, you don’t have fish.” Langer said the government did not hold public consultations on the changes but buried them in the budget bill

instead. “It’s not the way you change legislation, you don’t sneak it on the end of another bill you need to pass to keep government functioning,” Langer said. “This government is so arrogant.” In March, more than 625 scientists, including Canada’s most senior ecologists and aquatic scientists, signed a letter urging Prime Minister Stephen Harper to back off from changing the Fisheries Act, and a society of Canadian biologists and ecologists also wrote the government, urging the Conservatives not to rewrite the laws. The changes are outlined in Bill C-38, which was introduced in the House of

Commons on April 26 and passed first reading, but with the Tories holding a majority, it is almost certain to become law. According to Bill C-38, the Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act, the Tories are proposing to change Section 35. 1 of the Fisheries Act, which states that no one can carry on work or undertaking that “results in the harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat.” The new wording reads: “No person shall carry on any work, undertaking or activity that results in serious harm to fish that are part of a commercial, recreational or Aboriginal fishery, or to fish that support such a fishery.”

Police issue warning after rash of car thefts The New Westminster police department is warning residents to be extra careful after a rash of car thefts in the Royal City over the last two weeks. The thefts have been throughout the city with no discernible patterns or highvolume locations, said a media release. Police investigators have noted a large number of the cars had small, easy to conceal items, such as GPS units and IPods in plain view. These items are like magnets for auto thieves who can quickly enter a vehicle and easily transport these items to where they will be re-sold for small amounts of cash or traded for drugs, the release noted. Police are asking the public to help prevent thefts by removing such items from their vehicle and making them less tempt-

ing targets for thieves looking to make a quick buck. ICBC also has a number of tips for preventing auto theft and theft from autos. It recommends using anti-theft devices; parking in well-lit areas; removing possessions from the car; not keeping spare car keys in the car; not leaving the garagedoor opener in sight; and waiting for parkade garage doors and gates to close before pulling away. The police forensic identification unit is analyzing a number of items seized from the recent thefts, and investigators are tracking several suspects believed to be involved. Several arrests have been made, but charges have yet to be approved, according to the release. – Niki Hope

Canada dropped ment, has basically called out of Kyoto, saying it would come up out Stephen Harper’s government for unsupported statements on how it will with regulations to meet lower emission meet Harper’s own climate change goals. standards. As Vaughan points out in his report, given the rate of greenhouse gas Vaughan tabled an audit outlining his


emissions in the nation, “it is unlikely that enough time is left to develop and establish greenhouse gas emission regulations that together will contribute sufficient greenhouse gas reductions.” And for those who say this is the same-old, same-old politics – remember this is not the NDP’s Thomas Mulcair or Green party’s Elizabeth May making these charges – it’s the Office of the Auditor General. And now, this week, Harper has gone ahead with radical changes to the Fisheries Act, among them removing the

term “habitat,” leaving the fish completely vulnerable to development. “Basically, they’ve gutted the habitat section of the Fisheries Act. If you don’t protect the habitat, you don’t have fish,” said Otto Langer, a former government biologist. Mind you, it may be a moot point. After all, if Harper has sold out the environment and abandoned (if he was ever truly serious) greenhouse gas reduction targets, fish habitat may be replaced by lizard habitat – or we may all end up to our necks in watery fish habitat.

Every golden age has a dark side IN MY OPINION



t truly is a golden age, a time that will be remembered fondly for decades. Historians will write of these glory days, and bards will sing of their triumphs. Possibly with the aid of Autotune. It’s the golden age of superhero movies. As a longtime comics reader (don’t ask how many boxes I have at home), I’m giddy about the release of The Avengers, after a multi-year buildup that started with the first Iron Man film. There had been other superhero movies, and the Tim Burton Batman franchise made plenty of money, the Richard Donner Superman series is still well thought of. But finally, with CGI and directors who could tell tales of spandex heroism with a straight face, we got superhero movies that were actually good. Really, those Burton Batman films? If you want to really drive a comic book nerd into a redfaced, spittle-flecked rage, ask him how much he liked the idea of Batman machine gunning people from the Batmobile. (Jeez, it’s like Burton didn’t take the idea of a millionaire playboy/ flying mammal-themed vigilante

seriously or something!) The first of the golden age of superhero movies was arguably the 2000 release of Bryan Singer’s X-Men, followed by its sequels and spin-offs, the parallel Spider-Man films that started in 2002, and Christopher Nolan’s new Batman movies. Now, a lot of these films have been so-so to awful (we’re looking at you, Fantastic Four movies!) but you have to take the bad with the good. It’s always the golden age of something, and right now we’re living in the midst of several. The golden age of the hourlong drama? Sure, it started sometime in the 1990s when HBO rose to prominence and started making The Sopranos and Oz and The Wire, and everyone else had to bring up their game to compete. With Breaking Bad and A Game of Thrones still airing, it’s far from over. How about sitcoms? Arguably, it started with I Love Lucy and has not yet ended. The style seems to shift, though. The 1970s gave us MASH and All in the Family, with political and social commentary, then the 1980s gave us cosy, politics-free shows like Cheers and The Cosby Show. Seinfeld and Arrested Development brought cynical, dark comedy, and the current crop of great shows include Community and Parks and Recreation, shows that mix heart and absurdist, rapid-fire jokes. It’s also the golden age of

Civic centre plan has problems Dear Editor:

Re: City takes on $94-million project alone, The Record, May 2. When it comes to the rationalizing risking $57 million of City of New Westminster’s taxpayers money, Mayor Wayne Wright claims there is a need for Class A office space in New West and the promotion of the civic centre holding conventions. Most of the commercial and retail development taking place in the region is in Surrey and south of the Fraser. In the north sector, Port Coquitlam is the one municipality that seems to have the land space to develop commercial and retail. Most offices that are moving out of downtown Vancouver seem to be moving to Surrey because Surrey has a lot of the amenities and the willingness to supply those amenities to both commercial and retail, plus the ◗Culture Page 7 landspace to develop it.

Everyone talks about revitalizing the downtown of New Westminster. Traditionally, downtown areas of cities are where there’s a concentration of retail, business and residents. In New Westminster, ironically the “downtown” is actually “uptown.” But once again, by moving the big retail in New West over to Queensborough Landing and also ceding it to Burnaby (Big Bend and Lougheed mall) or Coquitlam, the uptown area that is actually the downtown core of New Westminster is starting to suffer. Take a walk through Royal City Centre. The anchor tenant in the mall: Dollarama, aside from the Safeway. Across the street (kitty corner) you have London Drugs and Save On Foods. Zellers in Royal City Centre – gone. And looking at it now, potentially, that would have been a Target store, as Target competes with Wal-Mart. But my ◗Rethink Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Rethink use of city money ◗ continued from page 6

main point is that the people have decided to make uptown the commercial hub of New West, not downtown. And people and their money speak loudly. The city spent a lot of resources and time facilitating the development of the B.C. Electric building. And who is the big tenant at the front entrance of New Westminster, the “big draw,” the first thing you see when you drive from west to east through the downtown area? The Salvation Army Thrift Store. Not a higher end retail store to draw a higher end clientele. Nope. A thrift store. Don’t get me wrong, thrift stores have their place in the retail scheme of things, but still … right at the front gate of your exciting, vibrant downtown core? On the other side of the street, you have the new development. Yet when you look at it, it’s a giant concrete monstrosity. You don’t see anything other than a Shoppers. And west to east, to access it … clearly, someone didn’t do their homework on that one. To me, it’s clear that some of the people who own the buildings downtown, the ones who don’t upkeep them, leave them boarded up (Front Street side) have shown how interested they are in revitalizing the downtown core. So: $57 million, plus the $35 million gaming grant. How much would that have done being put to work in other areas of the city? Such as the Queensborough pedestrian bridge. Or better yet, what about partnering up with the provincial government and upgrading the Queensborough Bridge? Imean,thecityhasmadeQueensborough the focal point of retail development and has forced people to cross a bridge to go shopping in New Westminster, pushing more traffic (commuter and commercial) onto the bridge. Not to mention the amount of development that’s taken place during the last couple of years in Queensborough. Yet it’s still a two-lane bridge. And constantly congested, bringing that congestion

all the way down Stewardson, sometimes as far as 12th Street. That’s just one suggestion. I’m sure lots of people would have lots of ideas about how to spend that kind of money. I don’t see anything wrong with simply adding a civic centre to the downtown core. If someone comes along and wants to partner up with the city within the next six months, prior to the “point of no return” on the issue of capping the building, then the plans are in place, owned by the city (I hope). And then the city can simply move forward with a new partner on the office space development. The city should perhaps be open to other alternatives other than just straight office space.

Project not worth the risk

603 1st Street, New Westminster $829,000

Dear Editor:

Re: City takes on $94-million project alone, The Record, May 2. Why would the City of New Westminster take on a $94-million project alone? It seems if the Uptown Group declined to participate for business reasons and no other developer has come forward, then what does the city know that developers don’t know? As a taxpayer, I am very concerned about the risk the city is taking on. With New Westminster being roughly 10 per cent of the population of Vancouver, the civic centre and office tower project would be equivalent to almost a $1-billion project for the city of Vancouver. Does anyone remember the Olympic Village? Does the city have an anchor tenant or any tenant for the office tower? Is the city planning to use the profits from the office tower to fund the civic centre? Does the city administrator’s statement that “the money is available from the Municipal Finance Authority” make it a good investment? Has the city provided taxpayers with a business plan for the project? Why would the city build an office tower, when no business partner is interested? Should ◗Office Page 8

a big fan of innovative jazz was the early 1960s. The soap opera is not likely to see any further artistic developments if it ceases to exist, as seems likely. The western genre produced everything from The Searchers to High Noon to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. In recent years, we’ve seen few westerns, many of them remakes. There are also areas where I simply can’t tell. If I don’t care for dubstep,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Office tower is too risky

◗ continued from page 7

the city wait with an office tower until future market conditions reduce risk? If the civic centre can only be built at the current size with an office tower, then the city is relying on office tower profits to fund part of the civic centre. Can the city come clean and let us know what amount of the office tower profits would fund the civic centre as currently planned? I am certainly not keen for a small city like New Westminster to take on a project of this size with so much uncertainty and as currently structured. The civic centre location makes sense, but the scope is beyond what the city should take on. Coun. Jonathan Cote considers that there is only short-term risk. Coun. Bill Harper is prepared to go without a business partner. Mayor Wayne Wright wants to continue to search for another business partner but not have a gun to his head. Will he then also drop the project as currently planned if he can not find another business partner? In a Nov. 1, 2010 press release, Mayor Wright stated that Uptown Property Group “is well-known in New Westminster and has a good reputation as office landlords in uptown.” Then what would cause UPG as an experienced landlord in New Westminster to back out of the project? In the same press release Lisa Spitale, director of development services, stated that: “By creating an opportunity for the

construction of a new Class A office space in downtown, we are able to achieve our downtown community plan priorities as well as those of in New Westminster’s Livable City Strategy while satisfying a key city council principle of DAC funding, which is to encourage the levaraging of private sector investment.” Will that key principle go out the window if private investors don’t come to the table? My view is that Coun. Chuck Puchmayr’s decision not to support the office tower is warranted. The risk to the city is too great. Let’s rethink this, and let’s be more transparent about costs, profit and risk to the city.

Give Burnaby the bridge Dear Editor:

New Westminster has six bridges. Burnaby has none. Let’s give them the Pattullo! Southeast of the Fraser has the new Golden Ears and Port Mann bridges. Southwest of the Fraser has the SkyTrain bridge, Queensborough and the newly located Pattullo (Tree Island) bridge. Build more park-and-rides where needed, and reroute all truck traffic through Coquitlam and Burnaby. We are a small 20-square-mile city of 70,000 people, who have to contend with 40,000 vehicles per day driving through our city. Give us a break. The traffic, noise and pollution is killing us.

Movies: Cinemas open tonight at New Westminster station ◗ continued from page 1

Eldon Wilson, general manager of King Cinema Services, said technology has changed considerably from what was available when the theatre first hit the drawing board three years ago. “Five years ago digital was a bad dream by somebody,” he said. “It has changed so much from five years ago. Five years ago it wasn’t as good as film.” Campbell said the customer is the “big winner” when it comes to digital technology. “The picture is perfect. The sound is perfect,” he said. “It is perfect for every presentation.” The small-, mediumand large-sized theatres are designed to accommodate the life cycle of movies and other offerings that may be sought by the local community. While some of the Landmark’s theatres offer alternative content including ballet, wrestling and opera, it will experiment to see what works in New Westminster. “We are community based. What works in New West is different than what works in Nanaimo,” Holy said. “We know that and appreciate that. We are able to work with our general managers of each city we are in to bring the best to that community. They live in the communities, they are part of the communi-

ties.” When Campbell first heard about the Plaza 88 project back in 2008, he wasn’t initially keen on the concept of locating a theatre in the development. A visit to the site, and chats with developer Mike Degelder, Mayor Wayne Wright and TransLink officials changed his mind. “We got more excited about the location. You have 1,800 condos here, basically in their home,” he said. “We could have a sold-out crowd just with the people who can walk to this theatre.” Campbell said the company decided to go for it, considering the fact that New Westminster didn’t have a movie theatre and the site’s proximity to condo dwellers and SkyTrain. Plus, he said, it was “just weird” that a city with a population as big as New Westminster didn’t have its own theatre. “I think one of the things that has intrigued Neil and I in particular is this unique venue,” said Brian McIntosh, a partner in Landmark Cinemas. “It’s our first, and it’s the first in Vancouver for sure where you are actually at platform level of the SkyTrain. You can speculate all you want about what that will do for your audience – we think that is a real plus for us.” As moviegoers stand inside the theatre’s lobby,

they can see SkyTrain cars rushing past every few minutes. Inside the theatres, however, there’s no evidence of trains of any type. “There is some additional sound concern, so we made sure there is good acoustic separation between us and the track,” McIntosh said. “The other thing is there is a railway track that way, on that side. When that train whistle goes, it’s loud out there. Not in here though.” Landmark Cinemas held a small community opening, including a ribbon cutting, on Thursday night.

It officially opens May 11 (today) at 6 p.m. Late Wednesday afternoon, crews continued to put the finishing touches on the theatre – polishing floors in the lobby, doing paint touch-ups on walls marked up when seats were moved in, stocking the concession, laying the last bits of carpet, cleaning up any bits of drywall dust, and preparing to train the theatre’s staff on one of the most critical aspects of the theatre. “The popcorn training happens tonight,” Holy told The Record Wednesday.

“There is official popcorn training – there is magic to that popcorn. It’s addictive. Each theatre group has their own way of making popcorn.” In addition to a full-time manager and two assistants, the theatre will employ a mix of 40 full- and part-time personnel. Mike Sharpe, general manager, came to New Westminster from one of Landmark’s busiest theatres in Fort McMurray. “That is the entertainment there. He is used to the volume. It’s important to have someone with that experience in a flagship like

this,” Holy said. “Mike has that experience. He also has the experience with a community that wants their movies. They want the latest and the best.” Campbell is confident that New Westminster residents will be pleased with the offerings at the city’s new theatre. “The people in New Westminster are going to be thrilled,” he said. “It’s a fun place to go, it’s a great escape. If you’re having a great day, it’s the icing on the cake. If you’re having a bad day, it’s a great place to de-stress.”

Retro chic: An interior shot of Sheila Sullivan and Oliver Demuth’s mid-century modern living room in their Massey Heights home. The couple bought the property in 2008. The home was custom built for Helen and William Dempsey in 1956 and was the Demspey family home for 50 years.

Homeowners open doors for tour Heritage Home Tour and Tea marks its 33rd year on Sunday, May 27



he home at 812 Massey St. is a midcentury modern lover’s dream – the very definition of post-war optimism with its exposed posts and beams, vast windows and perch above the city. But when Sheila Sullivan and Oliver Demuth bought the home in 2006 it wasn’t because they were mid-century fans. “(We had) no idea, we just liked the space. Loved it. Had to have it,” Sullivan says. It was only after they purchased that they realized its historical and architectural value. The couple is opening their home as a part of New Westminster’s Heritage Home Tour and Tea on Sunday, May 27. It is one of several stops on the selfguided home tour. This is the 33rd year for the tour, which was founded by the New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society to preserve and protect heritage in

the Royal City. Sullivan says she opted to open her home because she wanted people to see how many of its original features have been maintained. “There’s a lot of similar style homes in the area that have been covered over, built over,” she says, referring to her Massey Heights neighbourhood. “I think if people could be a little more educated on what it could be, they won’t do that and maybe they will restore them.” It was through the response of others – people would actually knock on their door, asking to buy the mid-century gem – that they became aware of just how unique their home was. A real estate agent who specializes in mid-century modern properties even asked if he could list the house. Eventually, they came across a design magazine that featured mid-century homes – from that they pulled decor ideas. Conveniently, some of the pieces they already owned worked. “This coffee table has been in Oliver’s family since the ’50s,” Sullivan says, pointing to a mint-condition Danish teak coffee table in the living room. “We just ◗Homes Page 12

haphazardly bought things, and they just kind of worked. “The home is peppered with large-scale paintings by Demuth’s brother, Michel Demuth, and other artists. A Fred Herzog – Vancouver’s godfather of mid-century colour photographs – book sits on the coffee table. The living room has a chrome and leather original 1970s Onda Wave design chair. The downstairs family room has Eames chairs – a coveted staple of mid-century decor. The home has rich mahogany wood panelling. Originally, the entire house had the panelling, but the previous owners replaced some of it with drywall – a move that Sullivan applauds. “Just to break it up a little bit more,” she explains. The backyard has a pool that was installed in the ’70s. Sullivan and Demuth bought the home in 2008. “We were actually going to purchase a townhome, and then he saw this house online and went

‘Oh yeah, we have to look at that,’” Sullivan says. They knew immediately they wanted to buy it. The then-owners were two men who had purchased it from Helen Dempsey in 2006. The pair renovated parts of the house including the kitchen and bathrooms but maintained its mid-century character. Helen and her husband, William Dempsey, were the original owners who had the home custom built in 1956.

65_RedRoses screening this Saturday AROUND TOWN



va Markvoort’s legacy lives on as the 65_RedRoses campaign for organ donation and cystic fibrosis awareness continues. 65_RedRoses is a Canadian documentary that takes an unflinching look into the life of the New Westminster resident as she battled the fatal genetic disease, cystic

fibrosis. After undergoing a lung transplant, her body rejected her new lungs, and the 25-year-old passed away in March 2010 while waiting for a second transplant. “But her vision did not die. Canadian distributor Hello Cool World is working with the filmmakers and Eva’s family to spearhead a North American campaign, centred around,” stated a press release. Campaign highlights include a launch of the new free #4Eva Mobile App designed to put organ donation on the map, a new cut of the award-winning documentary, and

legacy screenings across Canada. “At 23, Eva needs a double lung transplant to live,” said a synopsis of the documentary. “Unable to meet in person because of the spread of infections and super bugs, Eva and two of her online friends have become each other’s virtual lifelines, providing unconditional love, support and understanding long after visiting hours are over. Now at a critical turning point in their lives, the film travels the distance the friends cannot

go themselves, capturing the compelling and often heartbreaking realities they face, just trying to take each breath.” A portion of proceeds of a May 12 screening of 65_RedRoses will benefit Cystic Fibrosis Canada, in Markvoort’s honour. The screening is taking place on Saturday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at Denman Cinemas, 1737 Comox St. in Vancouver. For more info, see

Fighting hunger

New WestminsterCoquitlam MP Fin

Donnelly is taking up the challenge of Hunger Awareness Week. To mark this year’s Hunger Awareness Week, Food Banks Canada issued a challenge to all members of Parliament to fast for one day so they can experience what it feels like to be hungry during an average day. Donnelly fasted May 9 to raise awareness about hunger in Canada. Food Banks Canada states that each month, nearly 900,000 Canadians turn to a food bank, which is essentially unchanged from 2010 and 26 per cent

higher than 2008/09 levels. “In a country as wealthy as Canada, there is no excuse for letting our most vulnerable citizens go hungry,” Donnelly said in a press release. “This issue should have every Canadian concerned, and all politicians working together to solve this problem.” Hunger Awareness Week runs from May 7 to 11.

Discovering Wine

As New Westminster’s first and - from what I gather - only official Wine Assistant at a private liquor store, I have the pleasure of helping people – many who are in a hurry – pick out the perfect wine. It may be for a dinner party they’re hosting, or a family affair, like Mother’s Day. They may want to play it safe – if the wine-know-it-all boss is on the guest list – or experiment with something no one has ever heard of.

Wine can be a complex business -- or not. I prefer to take some of the mystery out of the experience. I find out what people are planning to eat and their budget. And then I dash around the aisles plucking a couple of bottles off the shelf. For Mother’s Day, consider a wine like Mas Fi Cava, with its sparkling lemon gold hue, like a statue – an Oscar - in Mom’s honour. All Moms should sparkle on May 13th and a bottle of this well-priced Spanish wine would go a long way to making her feel appreciated. Plus, if you still rely on Mom for most of your meals (and you’re expected to cook May 13th), Mas Fi Cava is wonderful on its own! For wine aficionados, this wine is made in the traditional method and it is a deal at $19.00.

May is also the time for prawns, lots of them, with prawn festivals taking place across British Columbia. All t h a t f re s h seasonal seafood needs to shine and requires a light accompaniment, a helpful sidekick that won’t overtake. If you are grilling prawns, Pampas del Sur’s 2010 Chardonnay-Chenin Blanc Blend from Argentina, for $12, is excellent value.

Also this month, is the May long weekend, which means finding a wine that can stand up to steaks and hamburgers. The $17 chocolatey Shiraz out of the Long Row vineyards in Australia is no push over. Its taste is substantial. It will match your barbecued meat and them some! This Friday evening come and visit me at Moonraker’s liquor store when we feature our wine of the week. My hope is to make the wine experience at Moonrakers as easy and unintimidating as possible. Come swirl a glass with me, but our noses won’t be in the air!

Mom will love your fun photo as a special Mother’s Day gift from Royal City Centre’s Giggle Photo Booth – it’s FREE!

Multicultural festival back for 10th year BY MARELLE REID REPORTER

For new immigrants and lifelong residents alike, this year’s multicultural festival in New Westminster will be a chance to check out traditions and cuisines from around the world. The 10th annual festival, presented by the Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association, will be held Saturday, May 19 from noon to 6 p.m. at the River Market. Food, dances, music, ethnic dress and arts will be shared at this family-friendly event, with about 30 groups presenting a variety of cultures. “We do have a lot of new immigrants come to the festival,” said Kendra Johnston, executive director of the BIA. “It’s a great place to connect with everyone in the community.” Over the last decade the festival has grown from just a few vendors to become a well-anticipated date on the New Westminster community calendar. “I was here for the first multicultural festival, and it was just a small event,” said Johnston. “It was really only a few groups getting together and maybe a couple thousand people came, and it’s definitely grown over the years. People look forward to it every year.” Last year, despite the rain, about 15,000 people turned out for the fun, and this year about 20,000 are expected. New for this year will be an art show in the River Market building and more interactive presentations, with activities like dance lessons and a mask workshop for kids.

NWSS students start food scrap recycling BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

The N-Dub Environment Club is trying to minimize the amount of waste that students are tossing into the garbage. The high school’s environment club recently launched a food waste recycling program. “Generally, it’s been quite a good reception,” said Isabel Sadowski, a Grade 12 student at New Westminster Secondary School. “Most people are starting to get the hang of it.” Because food scrap recycling hasn’t yet gone citywide, club members are stationing themselves by the food scrap bins at lunch hour to ensure students know the appropriate place to dispose of their lunches. In addition to food scraps, students can also recycle beverage containers and plastic products in other bins. “There’s not a lot you should put in the garbage can anymore,” Sadowski said. The school’s environment club has worked with the City of New Westminster and janitorial staff to implement the program in the cafeteria. Jennifer Lukianchuk, the city’s environmental coordinator, is proud of the students’ efforts to launch the food waste products.

“We started in the kitchen so the cafeteria workers would know what to do and how it worked,” Sadowski said. “Then we put the bins in the cafeteria. If this goes well in the cafeteria, we will probably put some bins around the school. A lot of people eat in the hallways.” The City of New Westminster currently offers food scrap recycling for single-family homes and plans to introduce a similar program for multifamily residences in the coming months. The city provided the bins for the school’s food scrap collection program. “The city picks up the food every week,” Sadowski said. “It’s already happening in the city. Many houses have these bins – I didn’t see why the school shouldn’t be doing it as well.” Members of the environment club will continue to staff the new bins for a few more weeks to ensure all students know where food scraps should now be placed. “They organized themselves and made this work,” Lukianchuk said. “It is amazing.” The food scrap recycling program is just one of the initiatives being pursued by New Westminster Secondary School’s environment club. “We have a community

Seeing beyond vision loss BY TAMARA TEDESCO

On a typical day, Brenda Knechtel, 54, might take care of her flower garden, browse online travel sites or carefully write cards to friends. But how she does these things is not so typical.

It wasn’t always this way for Brenda, a Coquitlam resident. As a child, she wore glasses and often visited her eye doctor. But as an adult, she began to develop vision problems, including retinal detachment, and had to undergo 22 eye surgeries. The experience was hard.

“Losing your sight… is like grieving something,” she explains. She was soon referred to CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind), a charity that provides support to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. She began attending the CNIB Vision Odyssey Group, a course that supports

“It’s CNIB that gave me the vision to be hopeful,” she says. “They taught me that I may not be able to do things the exact way I did previously, but I can still do them.”

Brenda also took other CNIB courses that taught her safe ways to cook, sew and organize her home. Her favourite CNIB service was the one-on-one assistive technology instruction that taught her how to use a computer in spite of her vision loss.

In British Columbia, less than 10 per cent of CNIB’s funding comes from provincial government sources, and CNIB relies on charitable donations to provide services at no cost to people who are blind or partially sighted.

“I told everybody,” she recalls, “‘I’m getting back on the computer!’”

To make a donation or learn more about how you can support CNIB programs and services in B.C., visit or call the toll-free CNIB Helpline at 1-800-563-2642.

With the help of screen-reading software that reads both what is on the screen and what she’s typing, Brenda now uses her laptop just like her sighted friends and family.

An avid traveller, Brenda does all of her travel planning online. An added benefit of researching her trips ahead of time is that it helps her better visualize her surroundings when sightseeing.

During Vision Health Month, CNIB is challenging British Columbians to take care of their eyes so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss.

Variety show helps Ride to Conquer Cancer BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

Simon Jukes is up to his old tricks. Jukes, a professional juggler and performer, and the B.C. Ride to Conquer Cancer are presenting their second annual Va”RIDE”ity show. The fundraising show features two-time world champion of magic Shawn Farqhuar, comedy magicians Trevor Watters and Lorena (who will soon be seen on Canada’s Got Talent), the eccentric juggler Simon English, international comedy performer the Checkerboard Guy, the Incredible Underground Circus, magician Brian Cooke, the ELEVATE dance crew and MC/comedian Donovan Dresher. The family-friendly fundraiser is taking place on Saturday, May 12 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Columbia Theatre. “It’s an incredible lineup,” said the former Queensborough resident. “I have got the current world champion of magic. He (Farqhuar) just performed on the Ellen show. He won a big competition

with Penn and Teller.” Jukes hosted last year’s variety show, but is taking to the stage as Simon English for this year’s event. He’s thrilled to once again be performing at this year’s event at the Columbia Theatre. “We are really excited to perform there,” said Jukes. “It’s historic. It has so much history behind it. As a performer, there is something about being on a stage where so many

people have stood before you, where so many New Westminster residents have used that as an entertainment hub.” Tickets are $20 and available at www.lafflines. com/reservations.html. If the event doesn’t sell out, a limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $30. Jukes is preparing to take part in his second two-day Ride to Conquer Cancer in honour of his younger

brother David, who died of cancer in October 2009 at the age of 27. While growing up in Birmingham, England, Simon developed an interest in juggling and performing at a young age, while his brother was more interested in mountain biking, golfing and playing his Xbox. Jukes will once again be riding his brother’s beloved mountain bike on the twoday bike trip through the

Pacific Northwest in June. While he cycled solo last year, he’s riding with a team for this year’s event. For more information

Defending city’s honour OUR PAST



n its early years, New Westminster took pride in its position on the mainland, not only as the capital but also for the services it provided. For those passing through on their way to the goldfields, seeking land on which to homestead, setting up a business or perhaps seeking a job, New Westminster was the place to start. There were always challenges to its position, and one of these occurred in early 1862 when Mr. Ballou, prominent in the stagecoach and shipping business, according to The Colonist, a Victoria newspaper, said that there was no accommodation for non-resident people in the mainland colony. The New Westminster paper, The British Columbian, took great offence to this and set out to right the perceived wrong. They said that the Ballou suggestion was

“calculated to make the impression that there is no accommodation for travellers in this Colony and warning people against leaving Victoria for at least 12 or 15 days.” The British Columbian stated further, “We take the liberty of stating for the information of those who are huddled together in Victoria, like so many herrings in a barrel, that, so far as New Westminster is concerned, this is far from correct.” It’s easy to imagine what happened next. Someone from the paper, a reporter or perhaps even the editor, donned their suit jacket, grabbed paper and pencil, and took to the street to interview those Royal City establishments involved in the hostelry trade. They subsequently informed their readers that “we have taken the trouble to ascertain from each hotel and boarding house the exact number they are prepared to accommodate in addition to those already here.” Quite apart from being able to witness, 150 years later, a bit of a squabble between the papers and the concerns of two growing colonial cities, this local survey supplies some very enlightening informa-

tion. The reported community survey included the following businesses: Hardies, Columbia, Colonial, Cameron’s Mansion House, Oro, and the New Westminster Boarding House for a total of 400 spaces available at rates of from $7.50 to $12 per week. Four hundred people could find a place to stay in New Westminster’s hotels and boarding houses in 1862! The article proceeded to offer the opinion that New Westminster hotels were equal to or better than Victoria’s, and that “gentlemen, who speak from experience, say it (New Westminster) is superior.” There was little up river in the Fraser Valley at this time in our history with amenities at places like Hope and Yale just getting started. The article from 1862 noted, however, that Port Douglas, at the head of Harrison Lake, “had plenty of provisions and good hotel accommodation.” New Westminster of 150 years ago was trying hard to become a “big city,” and their newspaper and businesses were ready and willing to defend their town from any slight to its position.

Are gardenias a good choice? BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON

Question: We have moved to B.C. from Newfoundland, into a very small townhouse with a little area in front of our dining-room window. I would like to plant two gardenias and a rose bush there and some low, colourful bushes in front to outline the bed itself. Would they grow well together, and is now a good time to plant them? Can you plant cuttings from an outside rose bush? If watered regularly, would they take root and grow? – Beverly Warford, Ladner Answer: Yes, Beverley, this is a good time to plant most things. A rose bush would be quite rugged and would fit well into your garden bed, but the hardiness of gardenias may be unpredictable here. The Kleims Hardy gardenia is said to have survived down to about 10 C. The Summer Snow gardenia is said to be zone 6 hardy (Ladner is somewhat warmer than that, probably 7B). But every few years we have had a brutal winter here in B.C., where borderline-but-usually-hardy plants have perished. So they can be a gamble. A long-flowering perennial to outline your bed might include the ornamental sage Purple Rain, or the white or pink-flowered Musk Mallow (Malva moschata). Yes, Beverley, roses can be grown from cuttings, and, if watered regularly, some will grow. Chances are not all will grow, so take two or three times as many cuttings as you’ll need. August or September are the best months to do this because the rose stems have become somewhat mature by then. Question: Last year I planted hollyhocks, and the stem and leaves were covered with rust. Also, my pretty pink mallow, which had been fine the last two years, also became covered in rust. This year both plants have rust again. Should I discard them? Is rust an airborne disease or is it an infection? – Heidi, Port Coquitlam Answer: The rust releases

spores that over-winter in the ground and reinfest new growth as it comes through. But yes, the spores can also float through the air. Rust is the reason why fewer gardeners grow hollyhocks these days. But some varieties are said to be rust-resistant. The Antwerp Mixed seed variety is said to be very rust resistant. But any hollyhocks can usually escape rust for most of their first year

rust had it not been near the hollyhocks. You may be able to save the mallow. Cut back and garbage every bit of new growth, wash all the soil off the roots then wash the roots again in 10 per cent bleach solution. Replant the mallow where rust has never been a problem. Got a question about gardening? Anne Marrison welcomes questions sent to

– and early-flowering varieties are now being developed. Fiesta Time, Spring Celebrity Mix and Summer Carnival are all said to be first-year flowerers when started early from seed. Yes, you should garbage the rust-infested hollyhocks. Don’t compost them, and don’t plant hollyhocks or mallows in the rust-prone spot for several years. I don’t think the mallow would have got

Library now on Facebook BY FAITH JONES CONTRIBUTOR

You can now follow the New Westminster Public Library on Facebook. If you “like” the library on Facebook, you can be among the first to know about new services such as our new microfilm scanners and the Express View DVD collection (available for three-day loan). Every Monday is “Movie Monday”: Library staff make suggestions, ask questions or take a poll on movies that are available at the library. The same goes for novels on “Fiction Friday.” This is a great way to find out more about hidden gems in the library’s collections. And if you don’t have a Facebook account yet, the library can help you get started. One-on-one computer tutorials are available. For 40 minutes on a Saturday or a Tuesday evening, you can receive individual help setting up an account. You can also get help with other computer skills as well. Call 604-527-4665 to make an appointment.

The library also has books about using Facebook, such as Facebook for Dummies, and for helping your kids make good choices online, such as Facebook Guide for Parents. If you have a small business, you might want to check out Facebook Marketing for Dummies or The Facebook Era. Or if you’re looking for work you might want How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Other Social Networks. If you’re curious about where Facebook came from and how it grew so big, there are books like The Accidental Billionaires and The Facebook Effect. And of course, the movie The Social Network, which is a fictionalized account of the company’s founding in a college dorm room, is available at the library. Facebook isn’t for everyone, so if you decide not to use it, make sure you pick up the library’s events calendar or look at the library’s web site regularly so you stay informed about all our community offerings. You can still say hello in person when you drop by!

The New Westminster Salmonbellies offence stalled big time in Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Delta Islanders in B.C. Junior Lacrosse League play. The sole bright light for the Salmonbellies was Nathan Stewart, who potted a natural hattrick in the middle frame. Stewart scored New West’s first goal with his second tally of the season on the short man. He potted his team-leading sixth marker of the year that tied the game at 16:00 of the second period. “Our offence wasn’t good at all, other than the intermediate callup Nathan Stewart, and he was the best player on the floor,” said New Westminster junior A head coach Dan Perreault. “He (Stewart) was very good, but our shooting was terrible and our turnovers were terrible.” Perreault was however pleased with the defensive end of the floor. Ross Bowman, who was solid in goal in the team’s first two wins of the year, had to leave the game midway through the opening period after a diving scoring attempt in his crease. Frankie Scigliano took over in the Salmonbellie

Race season a juggling act for sports car driver BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

Burnaby motor sports driver Michael Valiante will have a busy season of racing. Valiante was an 11th-hour replacement for Starworks Racing at the 24-hour at Daytona at the beginning of the year. There, Valiante raced to the lead and helped hold it for six hours before a flat tire ended the team’s day. “It kept my name out there,” said Valiante. It also led to a handful of other opportunities after Valiante’s contract to race with Michael Shank Racing was not renewed

last year. The 32-year-old former openwheel racer now finds himself juggling rides in three separate sports cars series this season, including a seat with the Spirit of Daytona team in the Grand American Daytona Prototype series race this weekend in New Jersey. Valiante began the season racing for the Honda of America team in the front-wheel-drive Grand Am Continental Tire series.

Golf: Two events planned ◗ continued from page 25

Two invitational tournaments are currently in the works – a confirmed eight-team event to be held in Osoyoos and a proposed 12- to 16-team tournament in Victoria to be played at Arbutus Ridge. “We are just allowing teams which are still playing to meet and compete at a high level,” said STM coach Joe Thierman. “We’re not trying to replace the provincials. It’s open zone.” Both tournaments will be 36-hole affairs and run on the same May 26 and 27 weekend, allowing AA, AAA and single A schools to compete against each other. Four schools were already confirmed at Osoyoos, but Thierman said the best fit for the Knights is the Shawnigan Lake invitational competition in Victoria. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed,” Thierman said.

New Westminster travels to Victoria this weekend for a Saturday matchup against the first-place Shamrocks. The junior ’Bellies are back at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday against the 0-2 Langley Thunder. Game time is 8 p.m.

Burnaby’s Ryan NugentHopkins scored his first goal at the International Ice Hockey Federation world championships in a 7-2 win over France on Monday. The Edmonton Oilers rookie centre opened the scoring for Canada at 1:59 of the first period after being partnered on a line with Patrick Sharpe and Jamie Benn. The new line showed a lot of hop against France, factoring in on five of the team’s goals, including the first four tallies, all of which came in the opening period in Finland. Nugent-Hopkins, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NHL draft, picked up an assist on the power play on Canada’s second goal of the game by Sharpe. The 18-year-old NugentHopkins also potted his second goal of the game in the third period. The win over France came after last Saturday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the United States. On Wednesday, Canada improved to 3-1 in preliminary round play with a 3-2 win over Switzerland.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to chase money – this entire week might build to a financial climax (Friday/Saturday) that favours you – there might even be a pay raise or you might sell a big item (or buy one). All’s good, so proceed. This is a smooth, easy week. Retreat, rest and contemplate Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Your energy and charisma return this evening through Thursday – start important projects, follow through with earlier plans, seek favours, call people. Whether you’re aware of it or not, you and a VIP might soon shake hands over something. Continue the hard work. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy and clout are at a yearly high. Life is expanding, but also changing. Some of you are being or have been “set free” – from a job, a duty, a marriage – in order to find new settings and new adventures. This freedom might be painful, but it is very likely fortunate for you in the long run. You might not believe me in late 2012 through 2013, as another factor indicates you will be living through the consequences of all your not-so-good actions of the last 18 years. But that’s then – for now, celebrate, as luck and ease fill this week. Wish fulfillment Sunday/ Monday! Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of rest and low energy. By May 20, you’ll be starting a high-energy month, which introduces an entire year of better luck, travel, marriage prospects, lucrative partnerships, even potential fame. Before then, you have to make it through the present interval of low energy – which should be a snap, as this is an easy, smooth week. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday: you could land an assignment. Midweek brings friends, a rising heart. Chase governments, institutions, charity, spirituality, therapy and research Friday/ Saturday – a civil servant likes you.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This fine, easy week starts with a beautiful, mellow and wise mood, Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Your relationship with a Virgo or Gemini – or with a partner – flows successfully. Communication helps. Midweek brings ambition (or pressure from the boss). Again, a partner might help.Thursday eve through Saturday intensifies this week’s main note: social delights, entertainment, wish fulfillment, popularity and group affairs. All week, two broad areas seem favoured: relationships (opportunities, negotiations, love, relocation) and career (prestige, worldly standing). Go ahead! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Chase your ambitions during this smooth, productive week (especially Friday/ Saturday, when a new project might begin). (Bosses approve of your wide viewpoint and your legal, financial and security insights these same two days.) Friends accumulate – and old friends from the past will begin appearing soon. Life’s depths, financial opportunities, sexual urges, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle changes face you Sunday to Tuesday afternoon – charge after what you want. Midweek’s mellow, wise, gently loving – however, your ideas or generosity might meet reluctance by another. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You can simply enjoy this mellow, smooth week and float along, or you can use the calm waters to sail ahead on your favourite projects. It’s a superb time to expend effort – you’ll be pleased, and your life strengthened, by the results. Relationships are prime Sunday to afternoon Tuesday. Exciting meetings, opportunities, relocation themes, even love, enter the picture in lucky ways. Midweek is for mysteries, depths, investments, debtreduction, and sexual urges. Be conservative. Far travel, cultural, intellectual, legal and international affairs succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is your last week of secrecy, sexual temptations, research, large financial actions and possible health concerns. These areas appear headed for success, easy progress – at the very least, healing. You might have made a substantial commitment or investment recently, or might this week. Go ahead – this is where your good fortune lies. Sunday to Tuesday afternoon brings chores, mild health concerns. Midweek’s for exciting meetings, new horizons, new opportunities – and negotiations. Friday/Saturday bring the last four weeks to a climax: embrace everything in the first sentence! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships open doors to new vistas and opportunities this week, especially Friday/Saturday. (Late May to mid2013 will feature financial, intimate and lifestyle “opportunities to commit” based on who/what you meet/agree upon, this week [and the last 50].) In other words, the meeting, the open doors appear now (and have, recently) but the commitment, the funding, will come late May onward. (Be cautious with commitment through August.) Romance, creative surges, even true love can arise Sunday to Tuesday. Tackle chores midweek. Friday/Saturday – the world! Be diplomatic, eager. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of chores, and an easy week it is. (However, the last year has brought an increase in work duties; and this Friday/Saturday might start a new job/project that will last to mid-June.) Be home, or attend to children, family, gardening, security, retirement, nurturing and similar themes, Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Romance calls midweek – so do pleasure, creativity and a speculative risk. Go slow. Late week, as mentioned, brings new chores. All week – and all the 13 months ahead – bring affection, generosity from others. Don’t “join” before September.

May 13 - 19, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance, love, charming kids, beauty, pleasure, creative surges and speculative joys last one more week before a large work load arrives. So enjoy yourself during this easy, happy week. Short trips, errands, casual friends, communications and paperwork fill Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Midweek’s for rest, home, family, real estate, security, retirement, gardening and similar interests. Go slow, realize someone ultimately isn’t on board. (And that someone might be you.) Friday/Saturday intensify everything listed in the first sentence of this message – in a lucky way! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase money (or spend) Sunday/Monday – luck is with you. (But don’t “push” an investment Sunday – if you can’t meet on a price/ value, just leave it.) All this week you’re concerned with home values, real estate, family, security and retirement – Sunday/Monday and Friday Saturday are great times to buy or sell a home. Friday/Saturday are perfect for finding the home you want – or for ending a futile relationship or a wasteful project. Midweek (Tuesday eve through Thursday) brings travel, errands, paperwork and casual friends. An old flame or former love prospect will soon appear. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This is your last week of errands, communications, short travel, paperwork and daily details. These come in a whirlwind Friday/ Saturday. It’s an easy week. Your energy and charisma score high Sunday to afternoon Tuesday – start something important (except in home, real estate) or impress someone. Chase money midweek, but go slowly with purchases. (Best time, especially for technical or health products: 9:15 a.m. PDT onward, Wednesday.)Your home and family are sweet: luck either comes swiftly here, or eludes you. If the latter, walk away: better stuff awaits September onward. • Reading: 604-727-3673
