ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You don’t like rejection. But instead of trying to “ram” your ideas through to an unreceptive audience, stand back and wait for a more favorable environment later this month. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Job commitments call for the tidy Taurean to charge into those problemplagued projects and get

them into shape. Then go ahead and enjoy the fun and friendships of your expanding social life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The pressures of the workplace are beginning to ease. While you still need to stay connected to your ongoing commitments, you’ll be able to take more time to relax with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel that you need to prove how much you can do. But be careful not to take on more than you

can handle, or you risk being bogged down. An Aries has a message for you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Financially it could be a little tight for a while. So resist the urge to splurge on things you don’t really need. There will be time enough to indulge yourself when the money squeeze eases later this month. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You demand trust from others. But someone is creating a situation that could put your own trustworthiness in question.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Keep your keen senses open to possible changes in personal and/or professional situations. Knowing what might lie ahead gives you an edge on how to handle it.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012

Commanding performances to grace ECS stage Feb. 15 An evening of sound and music is in store when the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) band appears in Estevan this month. The Command Brass quintet will be accompanied by performances by the Estevan Comprehensive School band, when the two will be performing at the school on Feb. 15. Wilma Mantei, organizer of the event, said that the RCAF band is often used in part for fundraisers, as the show is meant as raise money for the Estevan Arts Council. “They use their services for fundraising opportunities. They are giving their services to us,” she said. ECS band members will be opening for the five-piece

brass band. “It’s a really good opportunity to get a little more fun here,” she added, noting that the “ensemble of virtuoso players” perform numerous classics, as well as jazz and contemporary songs. Mantei said that they had considered bringing in the quintet as part of the Stars for Saskatchewan series, but added that because part of the Winnipeg band’s mandate is to perform at functions such as these, it would be appropriate to bring them in as part of a fundraiser. Having the high school band perf o r m isn’t just a good opportunity for the young musicians to increase their experience, but it’s an opportunity for the community to see what

the local bands are doing. “That’s important,” said Mantei. “We don’t hear them enough.” She said the start time may be a bit of an eyecatcher as well. “(Command Brass) wanted to start at 8 o’clock, so we thought we’d start at 7:45 with the high school band players. Why would you start at that hour?” With the ECS band playing as an opener, it gives them the chance to mix things up a bit. Instead of playing as a whole Kyle Whitehead, ECS band director, said, “We’ll have one or two small ensembles.” Splitting up into smaller groups is largely because it’s difficult to get everyone out in the evening. Whitehead encourages students to perform in the community often. “We had students go throughout the community at Christmastime, so they performed at seniors’ homes or the mall,” he added.

It was the Arts Council who approached him about teaming up for the fundraiser with the RCAF band. “We were hosting (Command Brass) and asked the ECS band to be part of it. It will benefit them as well, and they provide the place,” said Mantei. The performances will be held in the school’s 800seat cafetorium. Mantei encourages people of all ages to come out to enjoy the evening, noting that the show is for music lovers as well as people who wish to support the local arts. Part of the money raised will go to the Estevan Arts Council, which organizes such things as Koncerts for Kids, Stars for Saskatchewan and visual arts programming. The rest will go to the ECS band, which will also be raising funds through concessions at intermission. Tickets are available at Henders Drugs, ECS and at the door.

Sciatica: big nerve can be big problem DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 78-year-old woman, and five months ago I came down with sciatica in my left leg underneath the buttock. It’s very painful. I’d like to know if there is something that can be done. -- S.M. ANSWER: The sciatic (sigh-ATTIC) nerve is the body’s longest and largest nerve. It springs from nerve rootlets that emerge from the spinal cord in the lower back. Those rootlets intertwine to form this big nerve. It travels from the back, through the buttocks and down the leg to the foot. Anything that presses on or irritates the nerve in its long course gives rise to sciatica (sigh-ATTIC-uh), painful inflammation of the nerve. A bulging back disk can press on the nerve. Arthritic spurs on the spine are another source of irritation. A collapse of a backbone from osteoporosis is another trigger for pain, and the pain can be in the lower back, the buttocks or down the leg to the foot. Have you tried Tylenol (acetaminophen) for

pain relief? Aleve, Advil, Motrin and the many other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs dull pain and quiet inflammation. Icing the painful back area for 10 to 15 minutes three times a day is another way to numb pain. If ice doesn’t work, turn to heat -- hot compresses or a heating pad. Stretching the back might take pressure off the nerve. Sit on a firm chair with feet on the floor and knees shoulder-width apart. Turn slightly to the left. Then, with your right arm dangling down between the knees and left arm dangling down on the outside of the left knee, bend down to the floor as far as you can and hold that position for five seconds. Straighten up and reverse the process by turning to your right and arranging

your arms with the right arm outside the right knee and the left arm between the knees. If this exercise hurts, stop. If it doesn’t, perform five bends each, to the right and then to the left. Do the exercise three times a day. Five months is a long time to put up with back pain. I’m not sure if selftreatment will do much for you. You need a doctor’s intervention, along with physical therapy. The booklet on back pain delves more deeply into its causes and treatments. To order a copy, write: Dr. Donohue -- No. 303W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Some time ago, you answered a letter from an 80-year-old lady who asked if she still needed to have mammograms. I say an unqualified yes. Two years ago, at the age of 82 1/2,

For photos from around the community, check out: www.estevanmercury.ca

my mammogram detected cancer. Surgery was followed by radiation. Two years later, I am feeling fine and doing well. -- A.S. ANSWER: Experts argue about the value of mammograms late in life. Stories like yours make me side with those who promote having mammograms as long as a woman is in reasonable health. If a woman has an estimate of living at least four more years, mammograms are a good idea. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

Twitter succumbs to dictators’ censorship rules Social media is going dark, but it’s not another SOPA protest. Nevermore will the open and transparent virtual world of social media be so open, despite being a little more transparent. Twitter unveiled a new censorship policy that is governed by the rules of different countries. If you tweet from Canada, then you’re probably unaffected by the new rules. It’s people in North Korea or Thailand who will find it difficult to view a raunchy tweet fresh off the fingertips of Howard Stern. The move by Twitter is one that violates all kinds of free speech or access to information laws that we should be standing up for and championing their inclusion in societies where they don’t exist. The whole point of this for the social media giant is gaining access and money in these countries. Rather than be appalled at the way Syria chokes its citizens, Twitter is congratulating these regimes and accepting these controls over information as legitimate. If Twitter doesn’t comply with these censorship reforms, it won’t have access in these countries, and instead of showing a little backbone and refusing to have their

Jordan Baker Thoughts From My Fingers service knocked down to that of a PR tool for a repressive government, Twitter execs bowed low. There were two options: say no to censorship and be banned in some regions of the globe, or allow censorship of any tweets that may offend somebody or some government. Any tweet that is deemed offensive in China will still be readily available to view, retweet or respond to in Canada. Twitter is actually completely unavailable in China. Maybe if Twitter cuts down what can be viewed in that country to just the statecontrolled account, things will change. Of course China’s leader Hu Jintao will not be able to follow anyone but his own government. That may lead to further leniency. Jintao may, in turn, allow Putin’s Twitter feed inside the Great Wall of China. Kim

Jong-Un is in his 20s, so I’m sure he’s all over Twitter. He and Jintao can tweet each other about basketball and fun new ways to make the West more terrified of them. Twitter used to block some tweets that linked to copyrighted material, following requests from the owner of the material. There was no explanation, but now, Twitter will give reasons for banned content. I’m sure that doesn’t really matter to the Thai who wishes to access a tweet from Josh Lewis but can’t because Twitter says her government thinks it would be bad for her. Sure that’s more transparent, but it’s still unacceptable. Maybe not coming to a compromise, and having the state of some of these countries just ban Twitter outright would be better. Maybe then people would get restless at the inability to tweet and challenge their governments to allow a wholly uncensored social media network in their countries. When people in these parts of the world want a free Internet, they will ask for it, or more likely demand it. Then these social outlets should feel free to host their services in those countries.

Tribute to a man who lived agriculture There have been times when writing this column has been a challenge, usually because finding an idea sometimes requires a lot of brain racking. However, no column has been more difficult to write than this one. Usually words are not something I struggle with. I suppose more than two decades as a newspaper journalist have at least given me that ability. But this week the right words seem to escape me. This week I want to write about one man, and who he has been in the years I have known him. Like most, summing up a man in a few words is not easy, and that is certainly the case here. I’ll start by saying that Sheldon Nicholson was first and foremost a good guy. So when I learned last week Sheldon had died as the result of a stroke, I was greatly saddened. Yorkton had lost one of the nicest men you were likely to meet. I can’t recall ever running into Sheldon where he didn’t have a smile, and the time to talk, and that talk in our case usually turned to agriculture. I first met Sheldon years ago when he took over as manager of Heartland Livestock in the city, a position he had held ever since. The man knew cows and he knew mar-

Calvin Daniels Trader Agriculture Columnist kets, and he was always ready to help me understand what was happening in terms of markets, and how that related back to farmers and ranchers locally. He became a valued contact because of that. But there was more to Sheldon. Trained as an auctioneer, the man competed in auctioneering contests on a regular basis, and he did well. That meant more stops at his office to talk about those experiences, and to write more stories. I suppose in my case, I often think of people in terms of interviews. Sheldon was a good one. He was articulate, and willing to share his views, even at times when they might not have been what everybody else was saying. That made him good press. But as the number of stories grew, from comments on cattle markets, to business reviews of Heartland Livestock to working with recently arrived employees from Mexico, I just grew to like Sheldon as a person. As things sometimes turn out, Sheldon also liked supporting agriculture and the

community, so he became involved with the Yorkton Exhibition Association. Since the YEA is heavily involved in agricultural events, the spring bull sale, Harvest Showdown, and related areas such as rodeos and standardbred racing, I spent a considerable amount of time at the local fairgrounds, although nothing like the time Sheldon donated to the association, and its events. Sheldon, like many, put in countless hours to makes sure the events ran smoothly, and Yorkton and east central Saskatchewan had a range of things to take in and enjoy. Yet, again as busy as Sheldon might be, he always had that smile of his on under the cowboy hat, and he always had time to talk. It will not be quite the same at the summer fair, or Friday night standardbred racing without Sheldon being part of it. I can only imagine the heartache his family and closest friends are feeling over his loss at age 45. My condolences are extended to all of you. Just know others feel the loss too. The community has lost a valued volunteer and agriculture a good friend. And while I started out knowing him as a work contact, I too feel I have lost more than someone I occasionally quoted in the paper. Sheldon Nicholson ... you will be missed.

Five movies costs local family $11,000 on Phoenix trip It can be a terrible feeling to open up your phone bill and realize that the $11,000 figure is not an error. It was after a weeklong New Year’s trip to Phoenix with the family that John Gibson found a bill from SaskTel for $10,668.38. “That got my attention,” he said in an understatement that rivalled the exorbitant bill. The Weyburn man was down in Arizona with his children and grandchildren. His son Jason had taken his laptop with him that received Internet service through an air card or Internet stick that plugs into a USB drive. Jason said they thought it was a great way to keep the children entertained, so they watched five movies through Netflix over the course of the week. It’s a subscription service that was paid for, but what wound up costing them was the data charge. Because they were in the United States, they were considered roaming, and John said when he spoke to someone from SaskTel

about it, she told him the rate was $6 per megabyte. With the movie files being close to 400 megabytes each, the expense accumulated very quickly. “The average person around here would have to go get a loan to pay that, or you’re paying SaskTel $100 a month for 20 years,” said Jason. John is the one who received the bill and called Jason to tell him the surprising news. “He gave me a shout, told me about it, and my jaw hit the floor,” Jason said. The SaskTel mobile Internet plans web page does give a breakdown of monthly fees, which includes in the chart U.S. roaming fees that range from $3 to $6 per megabyte of data, depending on which plan an individual has. The information is there, but the Gibsons said the extra costs incurred under these circumstances should be more clear, adding that they never

gave a second thought to downloading the movies. John said when he first saw the bill, he read it as $106 and was going to pay it before he did a double take to more closely review the fivefigure number before him. “I called up SaskTel and said there’s something wrong here,” but the woman at SaskTel went over the dates of when the expenses were incurred, and he realized it was when they were in Phoenix. “It’s an excellent little trap,” he said, but added, “They were pretty good about it. I told her what happened. They knocked off $9,600.” The amount owed was significantly reduced, but a little more than $1,000 is still a steep price to pay for a few movies. The incident is a stark reminder to be aware of when your mobile devices are roaming, and know what the rates are when downloading any data.

We’ve become an iFamily When Apple announced its last quarter earnings recently, one figure stood out - how many iPhones are sold every day. Some intrepid writer then put two-and-two together and realized Apple is now producing more iPhones each day than humanity’s women are producing babies. Somehow, I don’t find that hard to believe. That’s because in December, we became an iFamily. For Christmas 2010, I bought my wife a fourthgeneration iPod touch. It’s basically an iPhone without the phone. All the same capabilities, sans phone, and a little thinner. She hadn’t put it down all year. At work she found it useful in pulling up drug references. At home she

Brian Zinchuk From the Top of the Pile would voraciously use it as an e-reader. Sometimes she would play games on it, and every once in a while, actually listen to a song. When we needed to keep Spencer occupied, say waiting at a dentist’s office, the ridiculously addicting yet simple Angry Birds game came to the rescue. By November, both I, and the kids were insanely jealous. Katrina was saving all her loonies and pennies for one of her own. Santa beat her to the punch, however, and both she and Spencer got iPods for Christmas. Michelle and I obtained iPhones in late November. At first I kind of choked at the idea of spending that much money on kids’ gifts, but I soon realized that a Nintendo 3Ds costs just as much, and the games are a lot more. Most apps for an iPod are around a buck, maybe two - plus, you’re not likely to lose the games either, since there is no physical media to lose. An iPod is also infinitely more flexible. I now have 119 apps loaded on my iPhone. I

haven’t used all of them yet. Some are games waiting for me to have an idle moment to kill time. Others are indispensible. Chief among these is the ability to do all my banking online wherever I am. Not sure if I have enough money in that account before making a purchase? Tap, tap - yup. Go ahead. A close second is Flipbook, an aggregator app that ties into dozens of news apps, Facebook and Twitter. While I already have apps for many of these, this is a quick, easy go-to app that is great for a spare minute. The kids have realized that they can now do video conferencing both amongst themselves and to us. When that’s not available, they now record and send video messages to me. I was shocked the other day when I was in Carnduff and Katrina sent me a video message. When I was that age, we still had a party line and a rotary dial phone. We loaded the kids’ iPods with educational tools and games. Katrina, in French immersion, has

started to make use of Google translate, which will not only translate text, but say it in whatever language you want. That’s a lot easier than using the old French-English dictionary of mine she pulled out the other day. This past weekend I took part in a free online web seminar (webinar) on wedding photography. I had it playing in the background on my desktop while working on other things. But when I had to get away from the computer, I launched the iPhone app and was able to take the video feed with me anywhere I went. The possibilities of such capability, both in education and in business, are endless. If you are house hunting in a new town, the REALTOR.ca app is probably the best thing to have next to a live, breathing realtor with you. You can drive down the street, stop, and scope out a house’s specs and photos without even leaving your car. Nope, don’t like that one. Let’s check out another one in the neighbourhood.

What is the best part about the Super Bowl?

He She He She Said By: Jordan Baker

To get to the bottom of what is good about the Super Bowl, we must go through a painstaking and arduous process of elimination of everything that is not so good about the Super Bowl. Hopefully at the end we aren’t left with commercials. The six to eight hours of coverage leading up to the game is definitely out. Watching a panel of two ex-players, an ex-coach and a generic TV personality to keep everything on schedule can give good analysis for about 15 minutes. The rest of the time it’s Toby Keith singing about America and sob stories about players from earlier this season, growing up in an underprivileged home or how they helped out after Hurricane Katrina. Often those stories are well done, but it’s become very predictable. Media Day looks fun, but as everyone knows, interviewing athletes is like taking the train: there is one set of tracks, and you will be carried away down one path. There is no room to veer off course and take the scenic route. One can only hope to find a colourful coach. The Super Bowl needs a Ryan. The half-time show is just terrible. Ever since that one that coined the term wardrobe malfunction, these shows have been on a tight leash by the networks and their advertisers. Madonna is performing this year and apparently she thinks she will be charged with the setting up the stage and taking it down, asking in an article I read, “How do you do that?” All you have to worry about Madonna is pretending to sing a couple of your songs, look like you want to be there and make sure all your clothes are in working order. Though every now and then the actual game turns into a classic, it’s far too hit-and-miss to really celebrate the physical competition that all the hullabaloo is supposed to be about. What does that leave us with? Commercials? No. The best part about the Super Bowl cannot be the commercialization of sport. It’s got to be Super Bowl chili. It’s the same as chili at any other time throughout the year, but this time, it will be the best part of your day.

The Super Bowl is great. It is an awesome time for athletes to show the world just how tough and cool they are. It’s also entertaining because spectators get to watch highly paid professionals cave and crumble under pressure. It makes us all feel a little bit better about ourselves, because even famous people can really suck. The Super Bowl is also great because it’s an excuse to eat all kinds of fattening food, and possibly have a few drinks. One can spend time with friends and just enjoy one another’s company. It also gives people a chance to watch their friends get drunk and embarrass themselves. This is even better when you don’t necessarily like all of your friends. The commercials during the Super Bowl are another fan favourite. Companies spend millions of dollars to advertise during the game, and often enlist the help of celebrities. The plots are sometimes a little racier than typically allowed on TV, as the intention is sometimes to get people talking about the product. But the very best part of the Super Bowl is that when I leave the house during the game, there will be fewer people on the road, in Walmart and just out and about in general. Seriously, I have absolutely no interest in watching the Super Bowl, so while every sports fanatic in the city is watching men in tight pants crash into one another, I will be getting my groceries, wandering around the mall or maybe just running red lights downtown. As for those commercials, I can catch them the next day online. And by the time they hit the Internet, someone else will have already weeded out the stupid ones.

Special postmarks coming out of Love, Sask. PROVINCIAL REGINA - The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region has released a five-year report outlining changes in the region’s demographics. It says that in the last 14 years the overall population has grown 2.7 per cent. In the same period, the aboriginal population has grown 39 per cent and the number of people 85 years old and older has doubled. Dr. Tania Diener says those figures mean the services that need to be in place may need to change. For instance, the report found half of all injuries that landed patients in hospital were due to falls,

so the health region has started fall clinics for seniors. Diener says they need to look at other prevention programs. More than 56 per cent of people are described as overweight or obese. *** OTTAWA - Nothing says love like a heart-themed postmark. Canada Post says cards sent via the Love, Sask., and St-Valentin, Que., post offices will get special postmarks. Canada Post says the Love and St-Valentin post offices will postmark twice as much mail as usual over the coming weeks. Already, mail is com-

ing in from across Canada and from countries such as China, Japan, Hungary, United States, Switzerland and France. Those wanting the special postmark in time for Valentine’s Day can find out how to send their card to the postmasters at the Love and StValentin post offices from Canada Post’s website.

CATHARINES, Ont. - American daredevil Nik Wallenda will make another presentation to the Niagara Parks Com-

The performer’s dream to inch along a tightrope above the Horseshoe Falls has been rejected by the commission board, citing its anti-stunting rule. Wallenda met earlier this month with Ontario Tourism Minister Michael Chan to plead his case. Chan told the performer he couldn’t overturn the commission ruling but urged Wallenda to meet with them again. After meeting with Wallenda, staffers will prepare a report that will be considered by the commission board, likely at their Feb. 15 meeting. INTERNATIONAL HARRISBURG, Pa.

- Pennsylvania prosecutors say they’ll tell Jerry Sandusky the names of the 10 young men identified as victims of sex abuse allegedly at his hands by the end of the week. The attorney general’s office said in a document filed late Monday in Centre County court that the alleged victims’ names will be delivered to Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola by the close of business Friday. Sandusky says he is innocent. The lawyer has requested a document from prosecutors that would include names of purported victims. It would also include the times, locations and other information to back up more than 50 criminal counts against the former Penn State defensive co-ordinator.

The Bienfait Coalers won a pair of games at home late last week to secure a first place finish in the Big Six Hockey League standings. With one game left, the Coalers (17-1-1) are now five points ahead of the Arcola-Kisbey Combines (15-4). Last Thursday, the Coalers hosted the Lampman Imperials and emerged with a 9-2 victory. And on Saturday, they edged the Oxbow Huskies 3-2. In other scores, Redvers doubled up Carnduff

6-3 on Thursday. Midale dumped Carlyle 8-4 and Oxbow defeated Wawota 7-4 on Friday. On Saturday, it was Carlyle 4 at Wawota 3 and Lampman 3 at Midale 8. After Bienfait and Arcola, the playoff race is very tight as five teams — Carlyle (10-8-1), Redvers (10-8-1), Wawota (10-7-0), Midale (9-7-1) and Oxbow (9-91)— were separated by two points entering Tuesday’s action. Wawota and Midale had two games in hand on each of the other teams.

There also remains a race for the eighth and final playoff spot. Lampman (2-18) has four points and Carnduff (1-16) has two. Lampman has finished their regular season slate while Carnduff has three games left. Carnduff was scheduled to visit Wawota on Wednesday. Tonight, Midale is in Wawota and Bienfait is in Carlyle. Tomorrow’s slate has Oxbow at Carnduff and Wawota at Midale. In provincial action,

the Coalers advanced to the second round of the Senior A draw with a 2-1 road victory over the Avonlea Arrows on Sunday. Bienfait won the best-of-three series in two games. The Coalers will now face the Balcarres Broncs of the Qu’Appelle Valley Hockey League in the second round. In the Senior C bracket, Carlyle tied Odessa 5-5 on Sunday to win their series and move on to a matchup against the QVHL’s Indian Head Chiefs.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012

A Caring Teacher As parents we have all been exposed to the “parentteacher interview.” I remember as a child dreading the return of my parents following their interview with my teachers. I knew they would hear the standard, which was always: 1) Susan’s grades are good, 2) Susan talks too much in class, 3) Susan socializes too much in class. Needless to say, I was a busy student and the social side of school was very important to me. Interestingly, I seem to have similar interviews when it comes my children. My three children all do very well in school and they are extremely social. I’m reminded once again that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, which brings me to my story about a very caring teacher. Last year, my daughter (Sophia), who is an A+ student, was in her first year of junior high. Grade 7, as we all know, is an interesting transition. Elementary school

Susan Sohn Welcome to Real Life and its structure and teacher driven schedules seem to fly away the moment you walk into the “other” side of the school. My daughter, being extremely social and usually very capable of handling her school work plus her social behaviour, found herself in this new world of selfdiscipline, student-driven schedules, no recesses to chat and linger and a heavier workload. The balancing act she was accustomed to didn’t seem to be working in junior high. Report cards came out and surprisingly a few of her grades had dipped, only slightly, but this is something that neither she nor her teachers had ever seen before with her. Parent-teacher interview time quickly approached and

I received an e-mail from her geography/history teacher, Mr. Brad Clooney. Mr. Clooney knew Sophia well and he knew what she was capable of. His e-mail requested that Sophia be present at our interview, to which her father and I quickly agreed. On the day of the interview, I could tell that my lovely Sophia was slightly nervous and unsure of what Mr. Clooney’s intentions were. Through her eyes I could see concern, the same concern I had as a 13-year-old girl. What would he tell my parents? Is he going to tell them how much I talk and focus on socializing rather than listening? How much trouble am I going to be in after this? She was clearly unsettled and deeply concerned about what would be revealed during the conversation. As parents (and like most parents), we know our kids well. I was pretty sure that

We Have K-CUPS

Mr. Clooney was going to highlight Sophia’s socializing and the dip in her grade was due to lack of attention, etc. I wasn’t worried, but I played the parent card well and let my (at the time) 12-year-old daughter know how serious this was, we were being called in by her teacher and her presence was requested. It was serious. We arrived at the interview and Sophia was nervous but poised. Mr. Clooney began to talk to us about her marks and went through his detailed information. We all listened intently and then Mr. Clooney asked Philip and me if he could direct the conversation towards Sophia. We always knew that Mr. Clooney was a great teacher and the students greatly respected him but for Philip and me, this is when Mr. Clooney showed who he really was and the extraordinary teacher that he is. Mr. Clooney said to Sophia, “Sophia, you are a very smart girl, you are socialable, very outgoing and a joy to teach. You engage in interesting conversation and you have a great interest in your classes. Unfortunately, your marks aren’t reflecting this. Sophia, you are better than this, you are a scholar student and you are operating below your natural ability.” He went on to ask her

if she was happy with her grades and if she thought this was her best effort. He talked to her and during the conversation he masterfully allowed Sophia to see what she was capable of through her schooling. He brought her to a place that was hard, she had to accept responsibility and then make a mature decision to make the necessary changes to bring the gold that he saw within her. Mr. Clooney is a wonderful teacher and an engaging teacher, and as I said earlier, the kids respect him - they have fun with him while he teaches them. In this instance, Mr. Clooney put on the strong teacher hat and took an opportunity with our child to set her on the right track. Mr. Clooney challenged her, corrected her and disciplined her. He did this wisely and seasoned with wisdom. Sophia came away from our meeting inspired and grateful. She recognized what Mr. Clooney did and how he took a risk at telling her exactly what he thought. She knew he wasn’t impressed with the work she was putting forward, she had disappointed him and us. Sophia determined that day to accept Mr. Clooney’s challenge and from that day on, instead of Grade 7 being a weird and awkward year, it became a year she will

remember. We are grateful that Mr. Clooney took the time to simply care about his student. He truly is a caring teacher and a teacher I believe Sophia will remember for her lifetime all because he cared about her and made a point of really teaching her. What Mr. Clooney did in that interview was true teaching. Yes, he is her geography/ history teacher, and he helps her learn about the world, but that day he truly taught a young girl how to be all that she can be. That’s why we are grateful. Sophia was given the opportunity to see herself through eyes other than her own, other than her parents, she saw herself through the eyes of a teacher who believes in her. Sophia is once again excelling in every area of school life, her grades are back to their great standing and her social life remains strong and healthy. To all the teachers out there ... may you never underestimate or forget the incredible impact you have, and can have, on young lives. Kids need your wisdom and to simply know, just like Mr. Clooney, that you care. Susan J. Sohn susanjsohn.com/thefamilyroom blogtalkradio.com/susanjsohn

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012

Colts face expensive Manning dilemma Neck surgery kept Peyton Manning from throwing a single pass during the 2011 National Football League season for the Indianapolis Colts, but it may be a key clause in his contract that keeps him from throwing one in 2012. Manning, 36, and a guaranteed Hall of Famer who might have three or four good years left, health permitting, has an important month coming up. If he is still on the Colts’ roster on March 8, he is due for a $28 million bonus. Payable immediately. On top of the $18 million per year he receives from a five-year contract he signed last July. Ownership says “ouch”; the Manning family counters with “yippee!” Owner Jim Irsay saw his team suffer through a 2-14 season without Manning this past season, and could logically expect a similar result next year if Manning isn’t wearing his No. 18 Colts jersey when the club huddles up for real next September. But if you owned a business and were due to pay a big chunk of dough to an employee whose health may prevent him from working for you next year, how eager are you going to be to write the cheque? In April, Irsay’s team will likely draft Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, a potential superstar, and the perfect scenario would be for Luck to study under Manning for a couple of years before the Colt great’s inevitable retirement a few years down the road. So what do you do? Cast Manning free before March 8? Trade him (the

Sports Columnist Jets, reportedly, are salivating at the thought of having Manning in his twilight years)? Pay the $28 million and have him tutor Luck for two or three years, as Brett Favre did with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay? That worked out well, but Favre didn’t have a $28 million price tag hanging around his neck while he played out the string with the Packers. My guess? Irsay will take a big gulp, pay the money to Manning on March 8, and pray nightly that his quarterback is healthy enough to pull double duty the next two years by leading the Colts back into contention, and showing Luck the NFL ropes so that the $28 million pays off in the next decade with a couple of Super Bowl titles. • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe.com: “The St. Louis Rams have announced they will play a regular season game in London in each of the next three NFL seasons.

Canadian junior reaches Aussie Open final NATIONAL MELBOURNE, Australia—Canadian junior Filip Peliwo had to beat his roommate to reach the Australian Open boys final. The Vancouver native won 6-4, 6-4 against American Mackenzie McDonald on Friday in the junior boys semi. Peliwo advanced in 75 minutes with five aces and four double faults, breaking on three of six occasions. “I returned well and served well in the tough situations,” said Peliwo. “I controlled the baseline and had good defence. I was able to put pressure on him. Peliwo said there was nothing strange about facing his roomie for a chance at the biggest honour of his young career. *** As the countdown clock for the London Olympics prepared to hit six months

Friday, Canada’s top athletes weren’t counting. They had more pressing matters on their minds — namely their next workouts. And the fact that neither Dylan Armstrong, Priscilla Lopes-Schliep nor Catharine Pendrel were even aware of the notable date, let alone planning to mark the occasion, was welcome news to Mark Tewksbury. Their focus, said the former swim star and the Canadian team’s chef de mission for London, is exactly where it should be. Armstrong, the world’s top-ranked shot putter last season, has been training in Scottsdale, Ariz., since November and makes sure not to get caught up in the Olympic hype. London, he said, is rarely even mentioned in training. *** TORONTO - He’s al-

ready in charge of making sure the 100th Grey Cup is the best ever. Now Chris Rudge has added the huge challenge of making the Toronto Argonauts relevant again. Argos owner David Braley announced Monday that Bob Nicholson had stepped down as club president with Rudge taking over as executive chairman and chief executive officer of the CFL club. And it’s not just an interim posting. Rudge, who has acted as the Argos’ chairman and alternate governor, will continue leading the Toronto club years after

the Grey Cup game in November. INTERNATIONAL PHILADELPHIA - At least four lawsuits blaming the NFL for concussionrelated dementia and brain disease are being consolidated in Philadelphia, and more could follow. A U.S. judicial panel in Miami approved requests Tuesday by the NFL and plaintiffs lawyers to try similar cases before a federal judge in Philadelphia. The four suits were filed in Philadelphia and California. Lawyers say more than a dozen lawsuits could ulti-

mately be consolidated in Philadelphia. The lawsuits represent more than 300 retired players or spouses, including two-time Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon. The players accuse the NFL of negligence and intentional misconduct in its response to the headaches, dizziness and dementia that former players have reported. *** BERLIN - Germany’s national anti-doping agency will investigate 28 athletes to see whether they received blood transfusions from a doctor at the centre of a doping scandal.

NADA said Monday it will review the court documents from an ongoing case against Dr. Andreas Franke, who worked at a training centre run by the German Olympic Sports Confederation for top-level athletes in Erfurt, central Germany. NADA President Andrea Gotzmann said she hopes the documents will help the body “decide which athletes we proceed with” in the investigation. Franke is suspected of treating athletes’ blood with UV light before re-injecting it back into the same athlete, a procedure banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Mighty fine salsa and homemade chips Homemade salsa stirred up with sun-ripened tomatoes from our backyard vines is a special treat reserved for summertime snacking. That’s what I thought until our neighbor Bryce popped by during a January snowstorm with a bowl of his “Mighty Fine Salsa” to warm us up. But how did he do it? After all, fresh tomatoes can be rather peaked, tasteless and expensive at the market this time of year. “It’s all in the secret ingredient,” he whispered. “Canned tomatoes. No one will ever know.” And he’s right. This salsa is not only mighty fine, but mighty tasty, too. Make up a batch, and add fun-shaped homemade chips. Why eat boring triangular chips out of a bag when your kids’ can cut whimsical cookie cutter shapes from flour tortillas? Just pop them in the oven, and they’ll be crisp and ready to dip into the salsa. Here’s how: Easy Mighty Fine Salsa 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, slightly drained 1/2 cup fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and quartered (see note below) 1/2 medium yellow onion, quartered 3 garlic cloves 1/2 cup fresh cilantro

lightly oiled skillet. Place it on a cutting board and cut into shapes with metal cookie cutters. Use scissors to cut your own designs or alphabet

Juice from one lime 1 teaspoon kosher salt

letters. 3. Set shapes closely together on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Brush or spray shapes

lightly with oil. Continue with remaining tortillas. 4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned. Sprinkle lightly

with salt, if you wish, and serve. Serves four to six. (c) 2012 Donna Erickson Distributed by King Features Synd.

Cast-iron doorstop Q: I have a cast-iron doorstop that has been in my family for at least three generations. It is a rabbit dressed in top hat and tails. The item is in fairly good condition. -- Beth, Amarillo, Texas A: Your doorstop was probably manufactured by National Foundry and is valued in the $75 to $150 range, according to “Kovels’ Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide” by Ralph and Terry Kovel (Black Dog & Leventhal books). Doorstops were especially popular during the late Victorian-era. *** Q: I have a Victorian-era Bible that was published in Glasgow, perhaps during the 1880s. It has a deluxe binding with metal latches and thick back and front covers. Letters found in the Bible are from the 1890s. It is in excellent condition, and I would like to determine its value. -- Judith, Placitas, N.M. A: I contacted several used and rare book dealers who told me that most

answered questions about Fiesta dishes, but I have an unusual product made by this company and wonder if you can help me determine how much it might be worth. In my mother’s estate is a lamp with a syrup pitcher base and a post-metal bottom. It is in cobalt blue. -- Cynthia, Buckeye, Ariz. A: I found your lamp referenced in “Warman’s Fiesta Ware: Identification and Price Guide” by Mark F. Moran (Krause, $24.99). According to Moran, your lamp with original shade is worth about $350. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox is unable to personally answer all reader questions. Do not send any materials requiring return mail. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

highly decorative Victorianera Bibles sell in the $75 to $150 range, depending on condition and content. By content, I mean personal family information recorded in its pages. A Bible from the Civil War period could be quite valuable if it has information pertaining to the war or was owned by a historically important family. William J. Chamberlin is vice-president of the International Society of Bible Collectors, and verily I say unto you, he might be able to determine the value of your Bible. His contact information is 6413 Snow Apple Drive, Clarkson, MI 48346; and research@biblemuseum. org.
