Aberdeen Centre is getting ready to celebrate ancient Egypt with a sweet display of icons made of M&M candy and replicas of beautiful artifacts.

The second generation of Mazda3 has some improvements, but a car with this quality and value doesn’t need many changes over the first version.

Film Fest tours Urkontinent

Helen Liao, event coordinator of the Your Kontinent International Film & Media Arts Festival, is camouflaged by one of two outdoor art installations at the festival.

BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

The German word Urkontinent, coined back in 1929 by geophysicist Alfred Wegener, meant “one single large continent.” When the New Asia Film Festival’s founders decided to reinvent the film festival in order to be more inclusive of all ethnicities, they came up with a twist on Urkontient — Kontinent. “This continent of which Urkontinent came from, if it existed today, would contain a multitude of ethnicities and thus be considered a mosaic,” said Ying Wang, director of the festival. “That is exactly what Richmond is all about.” Your Kontinent: Richmond International Film and Media Arts Festival, replaces the former New Asia Film Festival. see Films page 6

Raccoon attacks on rise Late summer means aggressive moms still with kits BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

More concerns are being raised after another vicious raccoon attack on a cat was reported on the weekend. All of the incidents — most of which have resulted in family pets being attacked, dragged away and bodies never recovered — have happened in the last few weeks and are concentrated in the south-west corner of the city, close to the west dyke. Wildlife experts in B.C. have said fights between the two species do happen, but that instances of raccoons hunting and attacking cats are rare. But the latest owner to contact the News, Karen Reynolds, isn’t convinced after seeing her cat, Coco, cornered and mauled by a pack of raccoons. Reynolds, who lives on 7th Avenue in Steveston, was woken up at 2 a.m. Sunday

Win-It CONTEST

by the sound of Coco the cat screaming. “I heard all this noise out my backyard and when I went downstairs, I could see Coco was fighting off four raccoons over the other side of my neighbour’s fence,” said Reynolds. “I was concerned about going outside when I seen the raccoons, but they were attacking my cat, so I had to do something. One of them backed off slightly and I managed to open the door long enough for (Coco) to get inside. I managed to rescue her but her injuries are unbelievable.” Coco is in Richmond Animal Hospital recovering from multiple puncture wounds, scratches and bruising all over her body, face and ears and a dislocated tail. “Her wounds are weeping so much that she is on an IV for dehydration, has a cone on her neck and a splint on her tail.” see Attacks page 4

Quirky ‘angel’ never woke up Vigil, celebration will remember popular teenager BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

She lived every day as a new adventure and rarely thought about tomorrow. That’s how Dawn Glinsky will remember her 17year-old daughter, Morgan Sparrow, who went to sleep July 15 and never woke up. A candlelight vigil on Friday (tonight) followed by a celebration of life on Saturday will be held to remember the popular, talented and “quirky” teenager who died suddenly last week. Messages of sorrow and support have been flooding

onto a memorial website and a special Facebook page set up to honour Blair elementary and Burnett secondary graduate Morgan. The page already has 345 members and is filled with heartfelt messages and pictures posted by friends. “She touched the lives of so many people and that is evident in the messages and postings on Facebook,” Glinsky told the News. “To her, every day was a new day to do stuff. She was big time into Facebook and texting friends. “I used to keep telling her, see Morgan page 3

Minister defends EAO’s pipeline review BY GRAEME WOOD Special to the News

Minister of Environment Terry Lake defended the work of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, calling the public consultation process of the proposed jet fuel storage facility on the Fraser River’s south arm a “good example” of the early stages of the assessment process. “I would say it’s an example of how it has succeeded. The public and city council and Richmond’s MLAs shared expressed concerns and the EAO heard all those things and the proponent is now going back to reexamine the other options,” Lake said. But not everyone, including Richmond’s mayor, agrees the process has been adequate. Lake also said his ministry is taking a “hard look” at whether or not the EAO requires more funding or human resources in the wake of a report earlier this month from B.C.’s Auditor General, which criticized the office’s inability to properly measure, monitor, and enforce environmental commitments on major industrial

projects. Lake noted the report did not look into the pre-approval assessment process, which includes public consultation. As he noted, the project’s proponent, Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation, has indicated it is looking at moving the location of a planned fuel pipeline to Highway 99 from No. 5 Road. A new proposal is expected by the end of August. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said while city council and staff have had several meetings with the project proponent, VAFFC, the quality of communication leaves something to be desired. “The challenge is not so much voicing an opinion, the problem I see is the position we’ve taken has been ignored,” he said of his city’s opposition to the storage facility. Brodie said he was puzzled at how the VAFFC came up with the option to ship fuel up the Fraser River via barges and Panamax tankers when other options were readily apparent, such as upgrading a current pipeline that comes from Burnaby to supply the airport.

Carol Day, chair of VAPOR, a grassroots organization of Richmond and Delta residents opposed to the plan, said the public consultation process undertaken by VAFFC was a “farce.” “It was public information, not consultation,” she said. Day’s criticisms came as no surprise to environmental lawyer Mark Haddock of the Environmental Law Centre at the University of Victoria. “The EAO follows a review and comment type of model that leaves a lot of people frustrated because they don’t feel properly engaged or consulted,” Haddock said. Ironically, VAFFC volunteered to take the proposal to the EAO for assessment, acknowledging the public’s interest in mitigating the risks of a fuel spill. It was not required because the facility, which would store 500 million barrels of fuel, is under the threshold for an automatic review. Nevertheless, a federal environmental assessment of the facility would have still taken place since the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority would be leasing federal land to VAFFC.

‘why don’t you just call your friends, that’s what I did when I was your age.’ And she would always say, ‘you never had texting when you were my age.’” Morgan’s “big thing” the entire last year was prom and graduating. “That’s all we ever heard about,” Glinsky said. “She also received a scholarship from Blair (elementary). She wrote a thank you letter to them, but she never got a chance to deliver it.” Sushi, shopping, Facebook and baseball all topped Morgan’s loves, said her mom. “She played in Richmond for the Boomers and then the Jaguars.” Glinsky said her daughter was planning to go to Langara College in September to do general studies, because she still “hadn’t quite decided what to do with her life yet.” Illustrating the regard in which Morgan was held, one Facebook picture, posted by Tanzy Sayadi, shows off a fresh tattoo in honour of her “best friend.” “We have lost our angel, but she is never to be forgotten,” her family wrote in her obituary. They described Morgan as a “beacon of light that will always shine in our hearts. “We miss you terribly funny girl and you will never leave our hearts ... we will love you always!” The candlelight vigil, organized by her friends, will take place at Burnett secondary on Friday at 7 p.m. The celebration of Morgan’s life will be held on Saturday, July 23 at 2 p.m. at the Richmond Funeral Home at 8420 Cambie Rd.

Attacks: Rare on cats Continued from page 1 “Her body has been shaved so they can treat the wounds. She is a mess, but thankfully alive.” Reynolds lives less than half a mile south from where the majority of the recent attacks — said to be rare by wildlife experts — have taken place. She said she’d never had a problem with raccoons in four years of living in Steveston. On Wednesday, the Wildlife Rescue of B.C.’s Yolanda Brooks advised cat owners to keep their pets in at night. “I understand comments about keeping pets indoors and looking back, I wish now I did, but it is sometimes difficult to do,” Reynolds said. “I have my sliding door open to my backyard almost everyday for fresh air. What do I do? Lock the cat in a room while the door is open?” Although Brooks acknowledged that raccoon and cat fights do happen occasionally, Richmond’s cat owners and residents are now wondering what’s causing the apparent spike. One theory is the recent advent of the city’s Green Can program, which encourages residents to recycle food scraps — a common source of food for raccoons. Some believe the scraps are more accessible in the new Green Cans and more odorous than they were previously in regular garbage cans, providing a greater attraction for the raccoons. “Raccoons are attracted to garbage and if it’s more accessible, then, yes, it might attract more of them,” said Brooks. “They’re basically scavengers. And the more food they’re getting, the healthier they will be and the more babies they will pro-

duce. “We’ve also had a longer spring, due to the weather, so there might be more newborn raccoons to protect at this time of the year than normal. That might explain why there are more attacks.” However, Linh Huynh, of the City of Richmond’s Environmental Programs’ department, said they’ve received no complaints about raccoons getting into the new green cans. “It’s been a year now and we’ve had no problems that I know of,” Huynh said. “People can wrap up the scraps in newspaper and most of the cans being used have tight fitting or snap-on lids. “Plus, we’ve talked to other municipalities that have the same programs and they’ve not experienced any rodent problems.” Huynh pointed out that people have always put food scraps into their garbage and that plastic garbage bags can actually increase the smell, as opposed to containing it. Brooks also suggested that it could, in fact, be just one group of rogue raccoons that are causing all the misery for the area’s cat owners. “It could actually be the same raccoons, because they do have their territories,” she said. The News reported earlier this week how the owner of a dead cat has posted warning notices in her neighbourhood after raccoons dragged away her family pet of 17 years in front of her mom. Just a week before that, a family in the same south-west Richmond neighbourhood suffered the loss of their pet, when a pack of raccoons were spotted in an apparent feeding frenzy on a cat they had killed.

They wanted more Richmond and less RCMP and that’s what they got. City council earlier this year knocked back the proposal to spend up to $100,000 on a public art project at the new Richmond RCMP headquarters because it was too aligned with the Mounties. But after the artist, Glen Andersen, reworked his designs — which incorporate the City of Richmond’s salmon theme as opposed to the RCMP’s buffalo — council approved the project for the No. 5 Road building, just south of Steveston Highway. The new designs, which include a mosaic entrance and a metal sculpture, are inspired by the city’s crest and heritage. Andersen was chosen out of 14 artists by a panel. The new building is expected to be opened in the fall.

More money will be dished out by the City of Richmond next year in civic grants — and the main beneficiary will be the grossly under-funded arts community. Collectively, Richmond’s arts, culture and heritage groups received less than $19,000 in grants this year. Next year, however, that total figure is set to rise to $100,000 after a city staff report indicated that the arts industry suffers from “perpetuated under-funding.” It’s a much needed boost to the arts community, who this year received just $18,730 out of the entire $542,000 civic grant pot. In a report placed before city council’s general purposes committee this week, staff acknowledged that a strong arts grants program could bolster local organizations and increase opportunities for artists. Despite the massive increase, Richmond’s contribution via grants to arts and culture is still less than a third of some neighbouring cities. From next year, the new city grants program will allocate $536,719 to groups offering health, social and safety pro-

Films: Celebrate identity Continued from page 1 “After three years, we decided to rebrand ourselves to expand the festival from an Asian only festival to a multi-ethnic one,” she said. “We want to be clear about our city’s identity and to have a sense of belonging for everyone. “The deliberate choice to use Your instead of Ur in the title is to represent one’s individual perception of their continent or culture.” Wang said there are many opportunities over the weekend to take in full-length films from all over the world (22 in total), as well as multi-media performances, installations, projections, music and dance. Friday night kicks off Theatre Under the Sky, with animation workshops live musical performances, free family activities, and a movie screening of a new award-winning Hong Kong kung fu comedy, Gallants, at the Richmond Cultural Center Plaza. The movies being shown are as varied as the filmmakers, but the underlying theme is one of “exploring our diversity and inclusiveness.” Unique this year is the two large white metal storage containers on the grassy area of the plaza, which are being transformed into intimate movie theatres. “People will be able to walk into these containers, at least 10 in the larger one, to watch short video clips,” said Wang. “In one container we will show Fragments, written by a Turkish new immigrant. It’s a film that deals with the loss of one’s iden-

tity in a multicultural world.” One of the highlights of the festival is the tea ceremony titled Tea Into the Mist — A Ceremony of Soul, a solo performance with performance artist Sophi Liang and a Tea Show, a multi-media projection and collective show (Sunday). “First of all, everybody knows tea but not everybody knows the properties of tea, its history and how it connects people all over the world,” said Liang. “Tea originated in Asia and spread all over the world and we will tell that story in an artistic way with a visual projection, music and a Chinese tea ceremony.” During the festival, the Performance Hall will become a cinema café, with tables set up so that attendees can sit and enjoy tea and scones with jam, while watching a film. The cultural centre’s new media lab will also be used during the four-day festival. “For example, people will be able to try their hand at animation, and create a film using a green screen,” said Wang.

It’s raining, not flooding

Libyan revolution. Syrian death squads. Sudanese war crimes. Somalian famine. American debt crisis. Yes, those are just a few of the topics you’ll find if you cruise around Google news headlines this week. So what are we all talking about? Why, the weather, of course. It’s raining. Again. It’s grey and it’s cloudy and it’s hardly warmed up at all. The temperature has barely broken 20 C, gardens and fruit trees have suffered from a cold, rainy spring — and never mind that, we’ve hardly had any time to sit on our patios sipping on pretty pink drinks with umbrellas in them. So here’s the thing. We live in the Lower Mainland. It’s hardly renowned for being a sun-worshippers’ destination. It’s a bit of a puzzle why we’re all up in arms about the rain when we live in a rainforest. More to the point, well, don’t we have any real problems to worry about? Has hunger been solved? Homelessness fixed? Poverty eliminated? War and revolution made a thing of the past? Yes, sarcasm is uncalled for. We sound unbearably pompous and hypocritical, because we complain about the weather just as loudly as anybody. But every now and then, we need a kick in the pants to remind ourselves that we have pretty darn good lives — and we should start paying a little more attention to those who don’t. So consider this our kick to ourselves and to the rest of you weatherbashers out there. Yeah, rain isn’t fun. But on the scale of revolution, war crimes, famine and international economic crises, it’s not really all that big a deal. Buy an umbrella and get over it already.

Ilich’s kindness will be missed Dear Mrs. Ilich; All of us at the Richmond Sunrise Rotary Club would like to extend our condolences to you and your family for the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and philanthropist. Both you and Mr. Ilich were long time supporters of our annual auction and gala. For 22 years, you purchased two tables at our May event, providing opportunities for not only your family to attend, but many others in the community. When you were in attendance, you generously purchased many of the auction prizes both live and silent to assist us in raising almost $1 million for local and international charities. Of these funds, almost $200,000 went to the Richmond Hospital Foundation (a charity close to all of our hearts). The legacy of the Milan and Maureen Ilich Foundation cannot be underestimated for not just the Richmond Sunrise Rotary or the Hospital Foundation, but all the other organizations that you have encouraged over the years. We wanted to ensure that you were aware of our deep appreciation for his impact on the community of Richmond and in particular our Rotary Club. Mr. Ilich will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. As per the family’s request, we will be making a donation in Mr. Ilich’s name to the Vancouver General Hospital Foundation. Mary Lou Miles President, Richmond Sunrise Rotary

Falcon nervous amid economic woes Finance Minister Kevin Falcon seems to have suddenly become very nervous. Long known for his brash, cocky demeanour, Falcon this week displayed a more muted, cautious attitude when he talked about the province’s finances during a presentation he gave on the public accounts of last year’s budget. The reason? Look no further than the ongoing events in places like Greece, Portugal and the United States. The spiraling debt crisis is the latest serious threat to the world economy, and Falcon knows B.C. could easily be sucked into any global financial meltdown. That’s why his finance ministry is now projecting that B.C.’s economy will only grow by two per cent this year. That’s half the growth we experienced last year. In fact, last year may be as good as it gets for our provincial economy for some time. No one is predicting that B.C. — or any other province, for that matter — will achieve four per cent annual growth for the next few years. This translates into fewer jobs and less revenue for government. And that means provincial finances will be squeezed even further in the months and maybe even years ahead. The financial challenges for government that come with any economic slowdown are compounded by an area of spending that shows no signs of slowing down: the health-care sector. Health-care spending

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

grew by more than four per cent (or $635 million) last year, and a similar increase will occur this year. But last year the government had more money to play with. Revenues were up almost $2.5 billion more than expected because of that unexpected four per cent growth rate. This year, with slower economic growth, it’s unlikely the government will see a greater than anticipated increase in revenue. So health-care spending will continue to squeeze other areas of government spending. The annual increase in health-care spending alone will soon be more than the annual budgets for all but eight ministries in government (remember, that’s just the increase from year to year!). Falcon’s other worry is the fate of the HST. If it is rejected in the referendum, it will blow an estimated $3 billion out of government coffers. More than half — $1.6 billion — is transition money that would have to be repaid to Ottawa. The remaining $1.4 billion represents the money expected to be lost over a couple of years after the HST disappears. That’s because the HST brings in significantly more revenue to government than the old

provincial sales tax. In fact, the HST was around for just nine months of the last fiscal year (which ended last March 31) and resulted in contributing several hundred million dollars in unanticipated revenue for the government. By the way, this last point is why I think people are fooling themselves if they think their personal finances will vastly improve if the HST disappears. Falcon says he can deal with that $3-billion hole, but he’s signaled one way to soften the blow: revisit the things that were exempt from the PST if we go back to the old tax system. So don’t bet that restaurant meals, to use just one example, will once again being exempt from the PST. Everything is back on the table when it comes to any exemptions. The potential headaches flowing from getting rid of the HST are one thing, but what really has Falcon spooked are the external events happening around the world. As we saw in the 2008 recession, no government is immune from the external machinations of the world economy if they are large enough. Falcon admits that two per cent growth projection for this year may actually prove to be too lofty if things really tank. If that worst-case scenario does indeed occur, Falcon will go from being a nervous finance minister to a panicstricken one. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

and many enjoy doing so. Please remember before using a hockey stick on any animal that all of our wildlife are trying to survive in a world where we, the people, have left them nothing. We continue to believe that we own it all, we don’t. Remember, what is here today is not necessarily here tomorrow. In closing, I would like to say you need not worry about the little four legged masked bandits that move through the night trying to survive.

Today’s Flyers

a couple of years ago was felt due to our pet cats. Every year at Critter Care Wildlife Society we get many, many rabbits, squirrels and even baby raccoons and other small animals brought into our centre because someone’s cat caught them. With the loss of habitat, our wildlife moves into areas where they have not been before. Populations build up and disease will come along and knock that population down. Raccoons have been around for decades, are highly intelligent and excellent mothers who will fight to the death to defend their young, no different than any other animal. Raccoon kits are now at an age where they are following their mothers while looking for food. So, if you don’t want them around, don’t leave food out, and monitor your pets while they are outside. During baby season you will quite often see raccoons during the day because, being a nursing mother, they are hungrier than normal. Also many of our urban animals have gotten used to living around people,

The Editor, Re: “Raccoons kill, drag away another cat,” News, July 20. “Does city have a raccoon plan?” Letters, July 20. “Raccoon attack on cat horrifying,” Letters, July 13. This letter is in response to the media coverage and news article on killer raccoons in Richmond: There is an old saying that an outside cat is a dead cat. In saying that, my husband and I have owned three cats, all rescue cats, ALL indoor cats, all were very happy and lived to an old age. When you go to adopt a kitten, or older cat you have to sign a form saying this animal will be an indoor cat. Why? Because they get hit by cars, they fight with other cats, they can be mauled by someone’s dog, or killed by a raccoon or coyote. The cat family is known to be the most ferocious of all hunters, our pet cats being responsible for killing not millions but billions of song birds and small animals every year in all of Canada. In fact, the decline in the song bird population

in November 2009. The fact that a municipal bylaw process overrules the Canadian Constitution and Freedom of Rights should be of concern to everyone. The attorney representing The Hall, in an effort to persuade me to drop the petition, offered my attorney: ! A one-time RCMP blitz in front of Lord Byng School (after initially saying The Hall could not control RCMP enforcement against dangerous driving at this location) but no ongoing enforcement; ! A review of the school zone signage (after initially saying it was adequate) but a refusal to even consider installing a radar speed reader board such as is located at other high risk traffic locations in Richmond; ! A neighbourhood survey of Georgia Street residents about the possibility of future installation of speeds bumps, contingent upon a consensus. Does anyone remember a survey and consensus for the millions spent on the Olympic Oval, public art acquisition, The Tall Ships, or the Dogs in Parks Taskforce, unless it was a corporate consensus? Now, I have first-hand experience of how The Hall’s surveys work: After spending gobs of tax money The Hall does what it damned well pleases, or nothing, regardless. It is, in my view, an exercise in futility. In return for these dubious concessions, The Hall’s attorney demanded a promise from me to obey the bylaw that

The Editor, Re: “Ottawa erodes democracy,” Letters, June 15. It’s tax time, time to pay for the governments we have deserved. My last and enduring hope is that I am wrong about most of what I think I know about our municipal, provincial, and federal electoral and bureaucratic systems. It does nothing to assuage my pessimism about the future for your children and mine when a person of Dr. Richard Mathias’s intelligence, knowledge, experience, and integrity agrees with me. I would have greatly preferred that he disagree and hold out some hope for true democracy, that he have offered some alternative to fixing a flawed system with a flawed system, and that he give me some reason for abandoning the legal alternative I am following as a last resort because it isn’t that I don’t have better things to do. First, fighting is stupid. I have the scars to prove it. Even when you “win,” you pay a price in injury, pain, money, time or inconvenience. Second, the reason conventional wisdom has it that “you can’t fight city hall” is that city hall, certainly The Richmond City Hall, fights back with your own tax money. You are paying them to beat you down. A sad example of this is my own B.C. Supreme Court Petition which originated with a B.D.A.S. ruling

puts me at risk. Well, my life may not be worth much, but I hope it is worth more than a $35 parking ticket. Even if not, the lives of the youngsters, parents, elders and disabled people transiting Georgia Street sure as hell are! Finally, The Hall conducted a “site survey” Oct. 20, 2010 with two senior staff members, a traffic technician, and an RCMP sergeant. Affidavits were sworn by all, as well as other staff, and provided me, through our respective attorneys, in two Cerlox bound volumes which, together with attachments, charts, tables, diagrams, fold-out aerial photographs, deck level photographs with notes and arrows, a response to my petition, and associated correspondence, not including covers and binders, comprises approximately 150 pages! If any of the many News readers who have expressed their concern about spiraling taxes (e.g. Surplus spending questionable, Clarke Carry, The News, June 15, 2011, p.12) are curious about how much all this, without actually accomplishing anything, is costing them in taxes, I encourage them to seek answers from The Hall through Freedom of Information before, as Dr. Mathias illustrates, our deteriorating democracy eradicates that too, as it has the federal popular vote payment to political parties.

The Richmond News July 22, 2011 A11

The Editor, Recently, there has been construction work near my neighbourhood. In the mornings, I don’t need my alarm clock because the construction uproar is impossible not to hear. I understand that construction is needed to form better roads, but what I don’t understand is the huge amount of time needed for construction. Often I see construction signs being held, roads being dug out but no workers are seen. This continues for days. Pedestrians are unable to travel on the paths properly, driveways are so unsteady that they cause

damage to the cars. In the winter, when construction work is left behind because of the weather, the ice between the cracks on the pavement expands, ruining the roads even more. As I sit inside my house I can feel the shaking whenever a truck or bus passes by. As a Richmond resident I hope that the construction work will be limited to a certain amount of time. This way, not only does it assure residents of the safety and peace they should receive, but it also makes Richmond an even more beautiful place to live. Anita Chen Richmond

No respite from noise on holiday The Editor, I was looking forward to a respite on Canada Day from the construction noise I am surrounded by at the moment with three new houses being built around me. A quiet day in the garden was planned, catching up on maintainance I have been unable to do because of the constant noise. However, this was not to be. It was carry on as

usual on the building site. Surely we are entitled to a little peace and quiet on Canada’s birthday. Any candidates who come calling for my vote at election time had better come prepared with an answer as to what they intend to do about the toolax regulations regarding building hours contractors are able to worth within. While trying to do a little gardening amid the

noise, I pondered Leslie MacDougall’s letter June 29 and realized while her neighbours will be sorry to see she is “outta here,” our esteemed mayor and councillors will not be. After all, her sold property will probably be knocked down to be replaced by yet another monster house, giving them more property tax dollars to play with. Annette Masters Richmond

Travel protected from the unexpected. You may be surprised to learn that medical care outside of B.C. can be very expensive - especially in the United States. For example, the average cost of emergency in-patient hospital care in the United States often exceeds $1,000 USD per day, and can even be as high as $10,000 USD per day for intensive care. And since Health Insurance BC (formerly MSP) may cover as little as 10 per cent of the medical expenses you could face TRAVEL INSURANCE when travelling outside WITH B.C., the Ministry of Health Services strongly EDWARD MACADAM advises buying additional medical insurance even if you only plan to leave the country for one day.

It’s wise to check the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada website at voyage.gc.ca. Select your destination and the Entry/Exit Requirements section will provide you with the travel insurance requirements. If you have confirmed coverage through your credit card or extended benefits program, be sure to obtain the proper documentation to meet the entry requirements of your destination(s).

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

Many B.C. residents already have limited travel insurance coverage through their credit card or employer extended benefits program. However, this coverage often doesn’t have a high enough dollar limit or cover you for the number of days per trip you require. Know before you go. Reviewing your travel insurance is increasingly important as some countries are now monitoring travellers’ coverage prior to crossing their borders. In fact, it was recently announced that several European countries are advising travellers to be prepared to show proof of medical coverage and may also impose a minimum coverage requirement.

Call 310-2345 or click on bcaa.com

Travel with peaceof-mind. If you find that your current coverage is inadequate to completely protect you from the financial devastation an accident or injury could cause, investigate additional coverage like emergency excess medical insurance, to be protected and enjoy peaceof-mind during your travels. Remember to purchase your coverage before leaving B.C. Coverage is available through private insurers, such as BCAA, who offer at least five million dollars in emergency medical coverage. Always carry your declaration page with you when travelling as proof of your insurance coverage. For more information about travel insurance talk to your local BCAA Insurance Agent today. Edward MacAdam is an Insurance Advisor at BCAA. He can be reached at edward.macadam@bcaa.com.

Put a notice on the hospital chart and above the patients’ bed. ! The HOH person can’t read lips through curtains or in the dark. ! Make chaplains, volunteer or visitors aware of the hearing impairment. ! Don’t do anything unexpected from behind. ! Tap the mattress to get the patient’s attention if his /her back is turned. ! Don’t leave the patient in complete darkness; leave a dim light on. ! Make sure the hearing aid is within easy reach. These are tips for com-

municating with HOH persons. There are other guidelines for people who are deaf and use sign language. The important message is to find strategies that work.

As promised, here are additional important tips to help you communicate with a heard of hearing person (HOH). This is the last of three articles on this topic. ! Begin every conversation by positioning yourself in front of the HOH person. This will help them relax and know that you care by the effort you’re making. ! Be aware of possible emotional responses such as: embarrassment, denial, anger, withdrawal, frustration or confusion. ! If you are not being understood, ask the person what you can do differently. ! From time to time ask the person how well you are doing. They often respond with a positive comment that will make you feel appreciated for your effort. ! Write down key words or phrases and be aware the some older people can’t read; they may be too embarrassed to tell you. ! Take time to include the HOH person in group situations; they feel hurt and frustrated because of missing so much. ! Don’t talk to the HOH

EXHIBITION

Aberdeen atrium transforming into ancient Egyptian tomb BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Joey Kwan was eating a few chocolate candies when a thought occurred to her. What if, mused the promotions manager at Aberdeen Centre, someone could construct an Egyptian exhibition made entirely out of chocolate candies? That idea spawned giant reproductions of The Great Pyramid and The Sphinx of Giza made completely out of M&M chocolate candies, which will be on display at Aberdeen Centre beginning July 29. “Last year, I started to think about M&M candies and how fun it would be to have an educational exhibit made out of them,” Kwan said. So, the mother of a 12year-old girl went online to see if she could find an artist who could create what she had imagined. “I did a lot of research and then found an artist in Hong Kong who I thought would be perfect for the job,” she said. For about a year, Kwan carried on email and phone call discussions with Hong Kong-based multimedia and toy designer, Dio Wong. “Dio had done similar exhibits, but on a much smaller scale, but after our talks back and forth he agreed to it,” she said, adding he created the torch relay bear mascot for the

2008 Beijing Summer Olympics as well as a chocolate scene to promote the film Transformers Revenge of the Fallen (2009.) “In fact, Dio has applied to the Guinness Book of World Records because these chocolate sculptures just might be the tallest and largest ones made out of M&M candies.” The central atrium at Aberdeen will be transformed into ancient Egypt, where shoppers can come and explore the world of the Boy King Tutakhamun and his treasure trove. Visitors will enter the mammoth display through two guardian statues and enter into a reproduction of Tutankhamun’s burial chamber. According to Kwan it is resplendent with its hieroglyphic ritual images, murals depicting the King and Gods, as well as his second coffin and the famed gold funerary mask. It was also important for Kwan to have the new exhibition interactive and educational. There will be a team of local post-secondary aspiring art students who will work alongside Wong for a month to create massive, coloured sculptures. “They will be building showpieces which will rise up 10 feet and 13 feet wide,” said Kwan. Throughout the summer months, there will be a number of special events tied to the exhibition. There

These replicas of of a golden throne and a life-sized statue of King Tutankhamun will be part of an exhibition at Aberdeen Centre, along with reproductions of the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx of Giza, made out of M&M chocolates, beginning July 29. will be weekly Egyptianthemed musical and dance acts. As well, Kwan said visitors might see “a living King Tut statue dancing around the mall.” Perhaps most impressive is the collection of more than 20 museum replicas of the most notable items of King Tut’s riches, on loan from Royal Exhibitions, a historical replicating company based in Ontario. “I was talking to the

curator at the Royal Exhibitions and he told me he had a collection of replicas, including King Tut’s tomb, the golden throne from the antechamber, an iron dagger from the Annexe as well as a life-sized statue of the king himself,” said Kwan. “There’s a lot of interesting stuff and he told me we could borrow them for our exhibit. see Show page 16

GREATEST SHOW UNDER EARTH.

It was once the largest copper mine in the British Empire. Today, the Britannia Mine Museum opens up a little-seen world that fascinates all ages. Just like miners did, visitors climb aboard a

mine train and rumble into an authentic tunnel. Entertaining guides describe the workings of drills and tools from the past century. Every visit includes gold panning with the chance to take home frequent findings. A captivating 15-minute film re-creates the past and reveals how families turned their isolated surroundings into pleasant experiences. The Family Play Area keeps young ones entertained. A glittering gift shop offers unique stones and carvings. To reach the Britannia Mine Museum, head north on the scenic Sea to Sky Highway. And the critics say: “!!!!1/2” TRIP ADVISOR. “Great Experience!” FROMMER’S TRAVEL. See you there!

Did you Know? A Little history about Boy King Tutankhamun ! Known as the Boy King, Tutankhamun ruled Egypt from the age of nine until he died around the age of 18 or 19. He reigned from 1333-23 BC. ! In 1922, his nearly intact tomb was discovered by British explorer Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings, Egypt. ! Buried with the king was a treasure trove of riches and artifacts. ! To this day, major studies have been conducted into how he died, with speculations running from an infected leg, to being assassinated to having malaria. Source: Aberdeen Centre

HEALTH

Appreciation can go a long way I’ve recently written of the challenges of romantic and marital relationships, how our thoughts of one another can suddenly or gradually shift from the positive to the negative, HEALTHWISE and how love — without deliberate care and maintenance — can be lost. With the cognitive shift to negative thinking, behaviour follows and we can share more negative than positive experiences. We must remain wary of this tendency towards negativity — of criticism and complaining — of competing needs and wants. At our family dinner table, we play the Appreciation Game. My kids might tell you that I force them to play the game but of course it’s for our own good. Everyone comes out a winner, and everyone gets to eat after we play the game. Even on days when the kids haven’t been getting along, I ask each to say at least one thing they appreciate about each of the other members of the family — including each sibling and parent. I’ve also taught my kids to start and end each day with a prayer of thanksgiving with a special emphasis on the people who make a positive difference in their lives. If they’re ever stuck for some ideas, I start them off by reminding them about everything Mom and Dad do for them. Counting their blessings at the start of each day, they are primed to look for the positive throughout that day. At day’s end when I would tuck them into bed, they will recall the good that they have been given; again, a positive way to close the day. This framing of the day with an attitude of gratitude influences how they see their world, themselves and others. Rather than focus on what they lack and what they want, they appreciate what they do have and feel more empowered to manage the challenges of each day. I practise the same rituals, and it has helped me through difficult and challenging times in my life. Each morning, the first person I think of before I get out of my bed is the person lying next to me — my wife. No matter what the day has brought and even when we have had disagreements, I have continued my ritual of appreciation. Invariably, the good that I have been given through the blessings of this relationship and the daily devotion of my wife over many years outweighs the minor challenges of the day. The act of appreciation may sound simple or simplistic, but it has helped me keep perspective — on what matters most to me and what really makes a difference in the life of my family.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry.No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody #1 confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night.

2 STORES - Online and in the Richmond Auto Mall

The Mazda3 Sport is a premium five-door hatchback that costs a little more than its sedan equivalent. You’re not alone in liking the look of this car as it’s already a very strong seller in Canada, where compact vehicles dominate. Buyers appreciate the high value, quality product when they see it. Completely redesigned last year, the second-generation 2011 Mazda3 Sport comes in three trim levels, GX ($17,495), GS ($20,965) and GT ($25,425). The base GX is powered by a 148-horsepower 2.0litre engine with a five-speed manual transmission, while the GS and GT trims both come with a 167 horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder and a six-speed manual gearbox. All trims have an optional five-speed automatic with manual-shift mode. Wise old auto heads say that it’s better to buy a car in its second year of production, when the engineers have ironed out all the early manufacturing kinks. There’s certainly something to be said for that line of reasoning, although probably less so today. That said, the 2011 Mazda3 Sport does come with a host of changes, but they are mostly packing changes. To start with, electronic stability and traction control systems are now standard on both the GX and GS trim levels. A 16-inch alloy wheel is now standard on the GX trim, a Luxury package (with leather) is now available on the GS trim and new Standard Equipment on the GT trim includes; a moonroof, leather upholstery, an eightway adjustable driver seat and heated front seats. New available features for 2011 include; rain-sensing wipers, auto on/off headlights, bi-xenon headlights with auto-levelling, an Adaptive Front lighting System, and LED rear combination lights. Deleted features include side turn lamp markers on GX and GS trims, door mirror turn lamps on GT and a driver seat memory function. A new blue warning light, which indicates low engine temperature, has been added to the instrument panel. While there’s no need to idle any modern engine for a long period in order to warm it up after a cold start, it should be driven cautiously (no high revving) until the engine gets to its operating temperature (and the blue light goes out). No matter the edition, price or potency, core attributes of a Mazda3 are its super-rigid body platform and its sport-minded engineering theme. Increased use of high-strength steel and a technique called weld-bonding in key body locations make the structure both lighter and stiffer, and when combined with new suspension modifications result in an even tighter and better handling Mazda3. My test Mazda3 Sport GT came with the new GT-E Package ($2,140), which includes intelligent key with push-button ignition, the Adaptive Front Headlights System (AFS) with automatic headlamp levelling, a premium 10-speaker Bose audio sound system, satellite radio, a Multi-Information Display, and a navigation system. This, of course, does put its price up dangerously close to an entry level high-performance MazdaSpeed3, but a similarly equipped Speed3 is about $4,500 more. see Safety page 23

Safety: Top Pick by institute

DriveTime PHOTO SUBMITTED

The driver’s seat has a tilt and other features that make it easy to find the perfect driving position.

Continued from page 22

The Looks

Not sure about that big Cheshire Cat grin up front, but its impish appearance and wavy body lines give the Mazda3 a distinctive look that’s very attractive. It’s a little longer than the previous generation car (by eight cm) and Mazda says that the big front air intake actually helps it slip through the air better, while taking in more air. My test Mazda3 Sport GT came with the optional Adaptive Front-lighting System which means the headlights turn as the steering wheel is turned. While this may sound a bit gimmicky it was actually a good feature to have while driving on a dark country road, as you see earlier and further into the corner.

The Inside

My test GT edition came with leather upholstery that offered good side support on the cushion and seatback to hold an occupant snugly in place. The driver’s seat came with a good range of power adjustments, which included seat cushion height and a tilt feature. Coupled with a tilt and telescopic, which is standard on every Mazda3, finding that perfect driving position is an easy task and it can accommodate a taller than average person. Mazda has done a very job of setting up the cabin cockpit with the driver’s job in mind. There’s enough rear seat space for adults provided those up front are willing to share. The seatbacks fold 60/40 to create an almost flat load floor. The extra cargo room that the hatchback provides can come very handy when moving bulky items. The optional navigation system screen is quite small and it’s mounted in a second tier instrument panel that’s further away from the driver. While in the driver’s line of sight it’s harder to read than most, which are usually mounted closer in the centre stack. The navigation screen also doubles as a MultiInformation Display, which was controlled by a grouping of small buttons on the right side of the steering wheel.

The 2011 Mazda3 recently qualified as a “Top Safety Pick” based on the results of crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. And as already mentioned an electronic stability control system is now standard on the GX and GS trim levels.

The Drive

The manual transmission has a stubby shift lever mount in centre console that was easy to navigate through its six gears and the clutch had a nice lightaction feel. While not quite the crisp, direct feel of a rear-drive sports car, like the Mazda MX-5, it’s very close. The top end gear ratios were not as long as I expected, as Mazda tends to lean more towards performance than fuel economy. see Score page 24 We also rent concession equipment!

Continued from page 23 The 2.5 litre engine pulls well at low engine speeds and its power output is deliciously progressive. Itís hard to find fault with an engine that’s such a smooth, torque-rich and willing performer, yet, its overall power output is little disappointing, considering its large (four-cylinder) displacement. The Mazda3 Sport is a good handling vehicle that feels solid and composed both at a high highway speeds or on a twisty mountain road, although road noise on some surfaces can be an issue. The steering is sharp and accurate, and it gives the driver a connected feel with the road.

Summer is the main season for road construction, which means there’s a good chance you’ll hit a bump or two, or come across loose stones and other hazards associated with construction zones. These road conditions can be tough on a vehicle’s steering and suspension systems and can throw out the alignment, while loose stones have the potential to damage the vehicle’s exterior or windshield. The symptoms of steering and suspension or wheel alignment problems are uneven tire wear, pulling to one side, noise and vibration while cornering or loss of control. The main parts of the systems are shocks and/or struts, the steering knuckle, ball joints, the steering rack/ box, bearings, seals or hub units, and tie rod ends. Motorists have their vehicles checked out immediately if any of these symptoms exist, as steering and suspension systems are key safety-related components and largely determine the car’s ride and handling. Regardless of road conditions, these systems should be checked annually and a wheel alignment should be performed at the same time. Motorists also should do frequent visual checks of their vehicle’s exterior and windshield to identify any chips, dings or cracks. These are small problems that can become costly repairs and safety hazards if they aren’t taken care of immediately. “Even the most careful driver, who is traveling slowly and carefully through a work zone, can hit an unexpected bump or other road hazards,” said Patty Kettles, manager, marketing and communications, Be Car Care Aware Canada. “The key is to pay attention to your car and if you think there’s a problem, have it taken care of as soon as possible.” Research shows that there is $10 billion worth of vehicle maintenance and repair being neglected by Canadian consumers. Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line, either in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value. Courtesy of Be Car Care Aware Canada

Small problems like dings and chips caused by driving in construction zones can be big problems later. It’s best to tackle the issues early on.

! Get in the experts: Consider giving your teen lessons with a professional driving instructor. A driving school instructor can be objective without the emotion involved in many parent-teen relationships. Stay involved and discuss what they’re learning. ! Remember the restrictions: As a parent, you should know the restrictions of the Graduated Licensing Program and make sure that your teen sticks to them. ! Put it in writing: Consider creating a family contract and set of house rules that are in line with the GLP restrictions. Go to icbc.com and create your own family contract. ! Gearing up: The type of car your teen learns to drive on can make a big difference. It’s best to learn how to drive on a vehicle that’s a manageable size and has good visibility.

School is out and now your teenager wants to hit the road — in your car. In 2010, more than 49,000 teens got their first B.C. driver’s licence, according to an ICBC press release. But driving is especially risky when you lack experience as a new driver. Not only are new drivers more prone to crash, one in four of their crashes result in an injury or fatality. Here are five tips to help teens drive smart: ! Set the right example: Driving lessons start much earlier than you may realize – your children will observe your actions and attitude from a very young age. To set a good example, remember that most driving slip-ups result from lapses of attention – stay away from anything that takes your mind from the road whether it’s a cell phone, food, coffee or make-up.

The Richmond Roadrunner Pee Wee A2 lacrosse team saved its best for last, capping a tremendous season with a silver medal finish at the Provincial Championships in Vernon. It was a perfect time for the Roadrunners to be firing on all cylinders. They opened the eightteam tournament by going 3-0 in round-robin play. Richmond defeated host North Okanagan 9-4, then rolled to an impressive 13-4 triumph over Abbotsford. The third game saw the locals trailing 5-3 in the third period to Nanaimo, before storming back with a pair of goals to draw even, then netting the game winner in overtime. The Roadrunners moved onto the semi-finals where they upset favoured Surrey 10-8. The outstanding run concluded with a 12-6 loss to Langley in the championship game. Richmond actually led 3-2 in the late stages of the second period before a rash

The offence was led by first team all-star and tourna-

ment MVP Josh Bourne, who compiled an impressive 18 goals over the five games. Two-time game MVP Ryan Jensen, added 12 goals and added 10 assists. Other offensive contributions came from Hunter Van Hest, Mitchell Lavoie, Jordan Sandhu, Kyle Alhfield, Brock Jung and Jordan Roberts. The iron wall defence was lead by first-year goalie standout Sam Loewen, who also won a game MVP award. see Goalie page 31

Richmond lacrosse player Melissa Caviglia has been selected to represent Team BC for the nationals being held this weekend in New Westminster. Caviglia, 16, who has been playing the game for seven years, is the only Richmond girl to make the provincial squad for the five-day competition.

Goalie: Amazing performance Continued from page 30 “It is truly amazing that a first year goalie could perform at this level under the extreme pressure,” added Jensen. The big athletic defence consisted of game MVP Dorrin Luding, Taylor Dudlets, Connor Sexsmith, Callum MacBeth, Justin Preston and Fair Play Award winner Graham Lynn. “We were by far the most athletic and

aggressive team in the tournament,” commented assistant coach, Roy Van Hest. “To have such a small association and achieve the silver medal placement clearly shows the character and determination of this group of boys.” The team would also like to thank bench personal Paul Roberts and Colin Sexsmith, along with team manager Carey Sexsmith.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of romance arrives. It grows sweet, lucky Thursday onward, when Venus enters your love sign. You could fall in love! (Maybe with someone from the past – an old flame, or a former co-worker or friend.) Instead of romance, the weeks ahead could bring a creative project, vacation, educational program, speculative venture or sports involvement. The same influences apply: you’re lucky, and the past will hold sway. (E.g., visit a former vacation spot.) Finish rather than begin things now: a slowdown looms. Tuesday/Wednesday are very friendly, Saturday’s lucky, love-starred! Taurus April 20-May 20: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 26. The weeks ahead feature home, family, property, security, retirement (or plans for, if you’re young). They can also tempt you to start a new project in these areas, or can bring an old/ former project back. The latter’s lucky, the former (the new) is not. Generally, these areas will be fortunate, especially this Thursday onward. You’ll be shutting down one connection or situation in your life, and beginning another. You might need a rest. If so, take it now: go camping, or sleep away few afternoons in the backyard hammock. Life’s easy! Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up, finish rather than begin. A slowdown or “retracing steps” influence lies just ahead. A month of travel, communications, paperwork and casual friends and siblings has just begun. You might take a very pleasant trip soon to a former haunt, visit long-lost friends, etc. Welcome the past, beware the entirely new. Your determination and sex appeal remain high this week, especially Monday to Wednesday (new friends, wishes fulfilled!). Rest, retreat Sunday. Be careful with money Thursday. August will bring major (mostly lucky) money flows: be cheap, savings oriented.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of lucky money interests faces you. Chase dollars, buy/sell. A slowdown or “backtracking” period will arrive early next week, so finish projects or reprise old ones rather than begin anything. Seek new clients among old contacts. Your memory will not be reliable soon, so take notes, write appointments on a calendar, etc. An old money issue might arise; you’ll finally pay up, or be paid. This is also a sensual period – your sex appeal, determination and “career clout” will grow soon (in August, not now). Sunday’s happy! Lie low Monday-Wednesday. Shine, Thursday/Friday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your clout, charisma and energy grow now to late August – you’ll get your way. But don’t start important projects. You’ll grow a bit indecisive soon – to Aug. 26. A slowdown, backtracking period affects everyone, causing missed appointments, broken promises, unexpected delays. But for you, the effect is more personal: you will reconsider your goals, your money situation/ plans, and your social desires. It isn’t major, and you almost don’t notice, as you feel sweet, loved: but it’s there. Don’t start anything new. Wishes come true Monday-Wednesday. Saturday, you attract love! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A slowdown looms in August, so don’t start anything new, even this week. A month of reduced energy, rest and contemplation has begun. Start to slow down, retreat from the hectic fray. Sidestep competitive situations. Though you face some weeks of relative solitude, it will be a sweet solitude. Be spiritual, charitable. Deal with government and institutions – these will treat you graciously and helpfully. Sunday’s sweet, gentle. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday. You’re wishful, optimistic Thursday/Friday: enjoy the mood, forget the results. Find a valuable secret Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A slowdown looms in August, so finish rather than start projects. A month of happiness, popularity, wish fulfillment, entertainment, light romance and social delights has just begun – the weekend coming (July 30/31) will bring sparkling evidence of this. You could fall in love, make a new friend, even meet a life-mate. This Monday to Wednesday are almost the same, except that the mood is more gentle – and serious. Now, how does this “big new love” vibe reconcile with the “don’t start anything” period that looms? Not sure. The love might connect to the past – yet not an ex. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing; finish instead. The month ahead (to Aug. 26) brings slowdowns, missed meetings, short supplies, etc. Have a Plan B – this is important, because you have just entered a career month, in which higher-ups will be expecting you to perform, and important people will be watching. So plan contingencies (and check supplies, firm up schedules, etc.) now, while you’re still in a strong, good phase. Enjoy relationships Sunday. Finances, research, sexual urges, all succeed Monday to Wednesday. Great work/career luck Wednesday and July 30/31 – it might entail “an end.” Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: August will bring slowdowns, indecision and backtracking, so finish projects now; start nothing important. A four-week streak of great intellectual, travel, international, educational, cultural, religious and love pursuits faces you – with good luck Monday to Wednesday (when relationships, marriage, contracts, opportunities and new horizons are accented) and even more so July 30/31, when friendship and love are hard to tell apart! But in pursuing these, stick to a past or ongoing connection rather than creating a purely new undertaking. An old flame might be on the horizon.

July 24 - 30, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new. You’ve had an exciting month, but a more telling, significant (and beneficial) one lies ahead: a month of depth, mysteries, sexual intimacy (or urges, at least!) health diagnosis, financial engineering, investments/debt, and significant commitments, lifestyle changes – all very fortunate Wednesday and July 30/31. Because these themes exist largely within a “backtracking” influence now, don’t look for nor pursue the completely new – seek a connection to the past. (E.g., an investment you pondered last year.) Step lightly with relationships, eight weeks. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: An exciting month has just started. Usually the weeks ahead would bring new people, new challenges and opportunities, and new horizons into your life – but this time they are likely to bring the “renewed” – opportunities from the past, ex-flames, etc. Pursue these, or stick to ongoing relationships, agreements, etc. Soon, your work is going to be very hectic, and you won’t have room to cultivate a brand-new link anyway. That said, what does come is romantic and fortunate Monday to Wednesday, and exciting and luck-starred July 30/31! Be careful with tools, health, work Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 26. A month of work, health chores, nutrition, and care of kids/pets has begun. Overall good: co-workers will be pleasant, kids well-behaved (to a point, of course) and your health should hold up well. (Watch sweets, blood sugar and digestive areas.) In addition, newly cheerful friends will surround you, and a strong streak of romance will exist. So you’ll survive; you’ll sidestep terminal boredom. Property and family are lucky Monday-Wednesday. Work/ money luck soars July 30/31. Romance has a snag or a joy Thursday night: marriage! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
