A happy new year to troops


ou don’t know 1st Lt. Nicholas Rasmussen. However, if you contrib­ uted some modest gifts or a little cash to the Support the Troops effort in Steam­­boat Sp­­rings in Nov­­em­­ ber, you touched Ras­­mussen and his fel­ low soldiers this holiday season. Tom Ross Nicky PILOT & TODAY is the nep­­ hew of Steam­­boat-area resident Joy Ras­­mus­­sen, and until late fall, he was a graduate student at the University of Iowa study­ ing physical therapy. He had to put his pursuit of a Ph.D. on hold late in fall when his Army National Guard unit was called up to serve in Afghanistan. Rasmussen is serving at a base near the border of Pakistan and is doing double duty as a medical officer and a public affairs officer. That’s what the Army is famous for, right? Support the Troops has been an ongoing effort of local mili­ tary moms Molly Hibbard, Mar­­ ci Valicenti and Lynn Mc­­Nas­­by. Each year under the auspices of the Yampa Valley Com­­mun­­ ity Foundation they collect addresses of service members and small gifts, which they ship in care pack­­ages for the holidays with the help of local businesses. “Molly and I have been doing a grass-roots effort here in Steam­­ boat since Thanks­­giving 2003,” Valicenti told me in November.

Fire ignites in Yampa house

Steamboat’s Finest Retail Space Available

Home damaged, no one injured in Thursday morning blaze

700 SF to 3,000 SF

Matt Stensland



An electric baseboard that caught a couch on fire is sus­ pected of being the cause of a house fire in Yampa on Thursday morning. Yampa Fire Protection Dist­ rict Chief Dan Allen said 20-foot flames were coming from the house on Fourth Street when firefighters arrived shortly after 7 a.m. Stella Stonehocker rents the home with her three children. She said she was in bed when she noticed a smell. She went into the room and saw the couch smoldering. It burst into flames within seconds, she said. The rest of the house was silent, including the smoke alarm. “It didn’t go off,” she said. Stonehocker went into anoth­ er room in the front of the house and told her eight-year-old son and his friend staying over to get up and get out of the house while she went for her cell phone. “By the time I got back, the kids were out of the house,” Stonehocker said. “They were like little superheroes.” The fire quickly spread. “It happened so fast,” said Stonehocker, who has lived in South Routt County for five years. “That’s where people make mistakes. You don’t go back in.”




Yampa Fire Protection District Chief Dan Allen says 20-foot flames were coming from this house at 640 Fourth St. in Yampa when firefighters arrived Thursday.

Everything in the house is destroyed, Stone­hocker said, except possibly a couple un­opened Christmas presents for her kids. Stonehocker said she is not soliciting help, monetary or oth­ erwise, but if people want to help, they can contact the First Baptist Church of Yampa at 970638-4622. “I know everyone wants to help,” Stonehocker said. “There is just not a lot that can be done.” One local company already has offered assistance. Stone­ hocker said Mountain Resorts contacted her employer, Steam­ boat Central Reservations, and put her up in a condo. Stonehocker said she has spoken with her landlord, and they hope to have the damage repaired quickly so she can move back in with her family.

Fire damage was contained to a single bedroom, but there was heavy smoke damage through­ out the rest of the house. “It was so heat- and smokedamaged that there wasn’t a lot salvageable,” Allen said. “It’s kind of sad, especially this time of year.” Allen reminded people to keep heaters away from other objects. “They need to keep good spacing in there, especially when it’s so cold,” he said. Firefighters from the Oak Creek Fire Protection District helped Yampa firefighters while a crew from Steamboat Springs stood by in Oak Creek in case there was an emergency in that area. “We’re fortunate to have mutual aid with Oak Creek and Steamboat,” Allen said. “It worked quite well.”

The Routt County Board of Commissioners voted this week to increase the compensation of one veteran employee at Yampa Valley Regional Airport, but tabled similar requests for two others. Maintenance worker Don Marchbanks will see his hour­ ly pay rate increased from $17 to $19.60 based on Airport Manager Dave Ruppel’s descrip­ tion of the expanded responsi­ bilities he has taken on, County Human Resources Director Chris Hensen said. Ruppel had requested that Marchbanks’ pay be increased to $21, but Hensen said after writing a new job description and a new pay scale with steps, she adjusted the new compensa­ tion in part to reflect the 5 per­ cent pay cut all county employ­ ees have had to absorb during the past two years.

Do you have something to say about a story we’ve written?

The new voodoo Paul Krugman


Hypocrisy never goes out of style, but, even so, 2010 was something special. For it was the year of budget doubletalk — the year of arsonists posing as firemen, of people railing against deficits while doing everything they could to make those deficits bigger. And I don’t just mean politicians. Did you notice the U-turn many political commentators and other serious people made when the ObamaKrugman McConnell tax-cut deal was announced? One day deficits were the great evil and we needed fiscal austerity now, never mind the state of the economy. The next day $800 billion in debt-financed tax cuts, with the prospect of more to come, was the greatest thing since sliced bread, a triumph of bipartisanship.

Still, it was the politicians — and, yes, that mainly meant Republicans — who took the lead on the hypocrisy front. In the first half of 2010, impassioned speeches denouncing federal red ink were the GOP norm. And concerns about the deficit were the stated reason for Republican opposition to the extension of unemployment benefits, or for that matter any proposal to help Americans cope with economic hardship. But the tone changed during the summer, as B-day — the day when the Bush tax breaks for the wealthy were scheduled to expire — began to approach. My nomination for headline of the year comes from the newspaper Roll Call, on July 18: “McConnell Blasts Deficit Spending, Urges Extension of Tax Cuts.” How did Republican leaders reconcile their purported deep concern about budget deficits with their advocacy of large tax cuts? Was it that old voodoo economics — the thought, refuted by study after

study, that tax cuts pay for themselves — making a comeback? No, it was something new and worse. To be sure, there were renewed claims that tax cuts lead to higher revenue. But 2010 marked the emergence of a new, even more profound level of magical thinking: the thought that deficits created by tax cuts just don’t matter. For example, Sen. Jon Kyl, of Arizona — who had denounced President Barack Obama for running deficits — declared that “you should never have to offset the cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans.” It’s an easy position to ridicule. After all, if you never have to offset the cost of tax cuts, why not just eliminate taxes altogether? But the joke’s on us because while this kind of magical thinking may not yet be the law of the land, it’s about to become part of the rules governing legislation in the House of Representatives. See Krugman, page 9

Liberals give ’til it hurts (you) Ann Coulter


Liberals never tire of discussing their own generosity, particularly when demanding that the government take your money by force to fund shiftless government employees overseeing counterproductive government programs. They seem to have replaced “God” with “Government” in scriptural phrases such as “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all Coulter your soul, and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37) This week, we’ll take a peek at the charitable giving of these champions of the poor. In 2009, the Obamas gave 5.9 percent of their income to charity, about the same as they gave in 2006 and 2007. In the eight


years before he became president, Barack Obama gave an average of 3.5 percent of his income to charity, upping that to 6.5 percent in 2008. The Obamas’ charitable giving is equally divided between “hope” and “change.” George W. Bush gave away more than 10 percent of his income each year he was president, as he did before becoming president. Thus, in 2005, Obama gave about the same dollar amount to charity as President George Bush did, on an income of $1.7 million — more than twice as much as President Bush’s $735,180. Again in 2006, Bush gave more to charity than Obama on an income one-third smaller than Obama’s. In the decade before Joe Biden became vice president, the Bidens gave a total — all 10 years combined — of $3,690 to charity, or 0.2 percent of their income. They gave in a decade what most Americans in their tax bracket give in an

average year, or about one row of hair plugs. Of course, even in Biden’s stingiest years, he gave more to charity than Sen. John Kerry did in 1995, which was a big fat goose egg. Kerry did, however, spend half a million dollars on a 17th-century Dutch seascape painting that year, as Peter Schweizer reports in his 2008 book, “Makers and Takers.” To be fair, 1995 was an off year for Kerry’s charitable giving. The year before, he gave $2,039 to charity, and the year before that a staggering $175. In 1998, Al Gore gave $353 to charity — about a day’s take for a lemonade stand in his neighborhood. That was 10 percent of the national average for charitable giving by people in the $100,000$200,000 income bracket. Gore was at the very top of that bracket, with an income of $197,729.

House to repeal pay-as-you-go rules that offset losses from tax breaks Krugman continued from 8 As the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities points out, the incoming House majority plans to make changes in the “pay-as-you-go” rules — rules that are supposed to enforce responsible budgeting — that effectively implement Kyl’s principle. Spending increases

Parades not needed for donations Coulter continued from 8 When Sen. Ted Kennedy released his tax returns to run for president in the 1970s, they showed that Kennedy gave a bare 1 percent of his income to charity — or, as Schweizer says, “about as much as Kennedy claimed as a write-off on his 50-foot sailing sloop Curragh.” The Democratic base gives to charity as their betters do. At the same income, a single mother on welfare is seven times less likely to give to charity than a working poor family that attends religious services. In 2006 and 2007, John McCain, who files separately from his rich wife, gave 27.3 percent and 28.6 percent of his income to charity. In 2005, Vice President Dick Cheney gave 77 percent of his income to charity. He also shot a lawyer in the face, which I think should count for something. In a single year, Schweizer reports, Rush Limbaugh “gave $109,716 to ‘various individuals in need of assistance mainly due to family illnesses,’ $52,898 to ‘children’s case management organizations,’ including ‘various programs to benefit families in need,’ $35,100 for ‘Alzheimer’s community care — day care for families in need,’ and $40,951 for air conditioning units and heaters delivered to troops in Iraq.” The only way to pry liberals from their money is to hold tickertape parades for them, allowing them to boast about his charity in magazines and on TV. Isn’t that what Jesus instructed in the sermon on the mount? “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do … But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:2-4)

will have to be offset, but revenue losses from tax cuts won’t. Oh, and revenue increases, even if they come from the elimination of tax loopholes, won’t count either: Any spending increase must be offset by spending cuts elsewhere; it can’t be paid for with additional taxes. So if taxes don’t matter, does

the incoming majority have a realistic plan to cut spending? Of course not. Republicans say that they want to cut $100 billion in spending, which is itself small change in a $3.6 trillion federal budget. But they also say that defense, Medicare and Social Security — all the big-ticket items — are off the table. So they’re talking about a 20 percent cut in

what’s left, which includes things like running the judicial system and operating the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; they have offered no specifics about where the cuts will fall. Now, the federal government has a lot more flexibility than a smaller government: It needn’t, and shouldn’t, balance its budget each year. The deficits of the

past two years actually have been a good thing, helping to support the economy in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. But responsible government can collapse in this country now that one of our major parties believes in budget magic. All it takes is disgruntled voters who don’t know what’s at stake — and we have plenty of those.

Agricultural land tax revisited The Colorado Court of Ap­­­ peals recently considered the question: When is the owner of agricultural property eligible to receive the favorable “agri­ cultural” tax classification? Fortunately for the landowner involved and for the owners of agricultural property in this region, the court took a com­ mon-sense approach to apply­ ing the facts of the case to the Colorado real estate tax law. Under Colorado law, a property that is used for agri­ cultural purposes, where the owner is attempting to make a profit — either from crops or from livestock uses — is enti­ tled to an “agricultural” tax classification. This then results in a favorable tax rate. In this case, the Adams County asses­ sor had classified the subject property as “vacant,” which resulted in a much higher tax rate to the owner, Aberdeen Investors Inc. Aberdeen had purchased the property in 2004 and in July 2005 leased the property out for grazing for the remainder of the grazing season. Aberdeen also leased the property for grazing in 2006 and in 2007 requested that the property be classified as “agricultural.” The assessor denied the request, indicating that the property would have had to be in agri­ cultural use on Jan. 1, 2005, in order to satisfy the requirement that the property be in agricul­

And that’s where Joy Rasmus­­ sen and her nephew came in. Nicky Rasmussen’s mother, Cinda Heiman, reached in Omaha, Neb., on Friday, said when mail call arrived on the day the care packages from Steamboat came, her son’s mail required an entire wooden pallet. “He got so much mail, he really caught a lot of (goodnatured) grief,” Heiman said. His aunt was proud of what her nephew accomplished through Steamboat’s generosity.

“He distributed seven huge boxes of goods from Steamboat to the troops,” Joy Rasmussen said. His mother said he earned a new nickname in the process. “They started calling him St. Nicky,” she said with a laugh. In a recent e-mail, Rasmussen wrote his aunt: “Joyful Joy, I have to say I snuck some of the socks out of one of the care packages you sent and kept them to keep my toes warm. I feel a little guilty, but at the same time very happy since my feet have not been freezing while walking around the dust of Afghanistan. Thanks again for the packages! I know they brought a lot of joy to all the recipients.” So, what’s a grad student in physical therapy doing in Af­­ ghan­­istan, anyway? Heiman said her 25-year-old son had signed up for Army ROTC to help pay for under­­ graduate studies in integrative physi­­ology at the University of Iowa (he graduated with honors). “He withheld the news from us that his unit had been called up for quite some time,” Heiman said. “I think he was kicking himself because he had several chances to transfer into another unit and just put it off. That medi­ cal unit is giving physical exams to other soldiers who are going over­ seas now. But he’s come to terms with it and has decided that if he has to do something like this, it’s the best time in his life to do it.” The war in Afghanistan is peculiar because many of us who do not have a loved one serv­ ing in harm’s way are strangely detached from the conflict. We have not had to make personal sacrifices to aid the war effort that were made by previous generations, and we go about our lives tracking the football bowl games and worrying about the price of sirloin while other Americans are risking their lives. Happy new year, Steamboat — you sent a clear message to service men and women you will never meet that someone cares.

Colorado Republicans who vowed to reverse oil and gas regulations that they claimed were strangling the industry and driving jobs out of state are now backing off — as is the industry. Two Republicans who campaigned for wholesale changes sent a letter to the oil and gas association Dec. 10 acknowledging the political reality: an incoming Democratic governor and a Senate controlled by Democrats who can block any legislation. “Since the governor-elect has said he supports the rules, a full-frontal assault on the rules would be a futile endeavor,” Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, and Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg, R-Sterling, said in the letter obtained by The Associated Press. The lawmakers urged oil and gas representatives to hold Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper to his campaign promises to change regulations the industry found onerous. “Are Republicans reneging on a clear campaign promise? Yes

they are, but they are doing it because they are being realistic. The best they can get is a fair implementation of the rules,” said political consultant Floyd Ciruli. Hickenlooper said some rules pushed by Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter and his administration and approved by the legislature may not be necessary. Hickenlooper spokesman Eric Brown said the new governor wants to promote the industry and protect the environment. “Both goals are achievable if we keep an open mind to new information and ideas, whether they come from industry, the conservation community or state legislators,” he said. In the letter, Brophy and Son­ nenberg said if Hickenlooper “can make the flawed rules work ... then we should allow him that opportunity. If he will not make that commitment, or if he fails to keep the commitment, we can reassess and pursue a wholesale rewrite if appropriate.” Doug Flanders, policy director of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association, said oil and gas companies are working on a few changes to the rules, but

they now want stability. “We are not looking for any wholesale changes and we are not asking for any legislation this year.” “What a lot of producers and the whole business community wants is business certainty. We can mostly live with what we’ve got,” he said. Changes that the Republicans and some industry leaders recommend include timely permitting, a moratorium on new regulations and new taxes, and replacing some of the people on the Colorado Oil and Gas Con­ servation Commission, which they claim was unfairly stacked by Democrats with environmentalists. The commission’s makeup was changed by state law to give landowners, local government officials and environmentalists a voice on the commission. Critics said the former makeup was too heavily weighted in favor of industry. Pam Kiely, spokeswoman for Environment Colorado, said the proposed changes are “a far cry from repealing the rules” that voters heard during the campaign. She said claims that the rules were “job killers” were not borne out.

Flames sizzle Avs, 3-2 Colorado loses 4 of past 5 games THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Tom Kostopoulos, Jarome Iginla and Tim Jackman scored in a 7:30 span in the second period and the Calgary Flames won their third straight game, 3-2, against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night. Miikka Kiprusoff made 19 saves for the Flames, who were playing their first game since Darryl Sutter resigned as general manager Tuesday. Assistant General Manager Jay Feaster is serving as acting general manager. Daniel Winnik and Tomas Fleischmann had third-period goals for the Avalanche, coming off a 4-3 overtime victory in Edmonton on Thursday night. Colorado has lost four of its past five games. “We were pretty resilient there in the third period, but it wasn’t enough,” Colorado coach Joe Sacco said. “It was a little bit too little, too late. At the end of the day, it just wasn’t good enough.” Kostopoulos opened the scoring at 5:53 of the second period when he drove to the net and swatted a rebound past Craig Anderson. Just 42 seconds later, Iginla took a drop pass from Alex Tanguay and wired a shot through traffic past Anderson. Jackman put Calgary up by three when he took a breakaway pass from Anton Babchuk and put a shot under Anderson at 13:23. Winnik got Colorado on the scoreboard with a short-handed goal at 7:45 of the third period. While falling to the ice, Winnik backhanded a shot through Kiprusoff’s legs to end the goalie’s shutout bid. Fleischmann then backhanded a shot past Kiprusoff with 2:32 left. “It wasn’t good enough,” Fleisch­­mann said. “It’s tough to play catch-up after 3-0. We tried. We had chances a little bit, but it was nothing close I would say.”


Steamboat Springs resident Charlie Dresen skis Friday in a sprint classic Telemark event in Steamboat. He finished second in the event. Shane Anderson placed first.

Racers attack Howelsen Steamboat Telemark skiers dominate sprint classic event Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF


Brendan Durrum is only 12 years old, but he’s already an experienced Telemark ski racer. Friday, he paused before explaining what he thought of his runs down Howelsen Hill,

which he skied as a part of a national Telemark race in Steamboat Springs. “My first run I could have done better,” he said. After he tore through a giant slalom course and flew over a jump, his ski got caught in a pile of snow in a 360-degree turn at the bottom of the course.

He powered through that, however, and rushed to the finish line. His second run was better, and in the end, a few minor quibbles did nothing to diminish the excitement of the Denver-based racer. “I was 7 the first time I tried Telemark, but really started racing when I was 8,” Durrum

said. “I like that there is always competition. You get to be racing and competitive. You’re always out there having fun.” He had plenty of competitors who agreed with him Fri­­day afternoon as a long stream of Telemark skiers attacked How­­ See Telemark, page 19

Latavius Murray scored on a 10-yard touchdown run with 9:01 left, and Central Florida held on to beat Georgia, 10-6, Friday in the Liberty Bowl and cap the best season in school history with the program’s first postseason victory. The Knights (11-3) had never won more than 10 games in a season and had lost their first three bowl games, including their last visit here in 2007. The Conference USA champs made this win even sweeter by knocking off a Southeastern Conference team in the process. Georgia (6-7) snapped a fourgame bowl winning streak with its first loss since the 2006 Sugar Bowl. Worse for the Bulldogs is notching their first losing season since going 5-6 in 1996. The Bulldogs had the ball last and converted two fourth downs before Kemal Ishmael knocked down Aaron Murray’s final long throw into the end zone as time expired. And in an ending reminiscent of Thursday night’s Music City Bowl, the game seemed to be over before it actually was. Murray’s first deep throw into the end zone landed incomplete and the clock appeared to run out. But replay officials reviewed the play and ruled the clock should have

Daniels helps South Florida down Clemson, 31-26 Mike Cranston



Skip Holtz came to South Florida in a tough spot, replacing a popular coach whose firing left some bad feelings in the locker room. The 3-3 start fueled by a shaky offense didn’t help matters. Slowly, Holtz got a grip on the young program and thanks to an impressive comeback from an injury by his quarterback, the Bulls have reached another milestone. B.J. Daniels threw two touchdowns passes and ran for a third and in South Florida’s 31-26 victory against Clemson in the Meineke Bowl that gave Holtz a strong finish to his first season

South Florida secured its fifth straight eight-win season and earned its first bowl win over a team from a BCS automatic-qualifying league. “It was really a great team effort all the way around,” said Holtz, who helped the beleaguered Big East move to 3-1 in bowls.

EJ Manuel threw a fourthquarter touchdown pass to stop a South Carolina rally and lead Florida State to a 26-17 victory against the turnover-plagued Gamecocks in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Friday night. Chris Thompson ran for 147 yards and a touchdown and Dustin Hopkins kicked four field goals for the No. 23 Seminoles (10-4), who reached 10 wins for the first time since 2003. Hopkins tied his own school record for a bowl, and the four field goals also

matched the bowl record. Manuel took over for senior quarterback Christian Ponder, who left early in the second quarter with a concussion. No. 19 South Carolina lost running back Marcus Lattimore when he was hit hard on the Gamecocks’ first drive. “I hate it for Christian,” Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. “He got dinged on the back of his head. He came off and he was kind of out of it a little bit. I hate that because of what he means to us, but EJ, oh boy, I’m glad he’s on our team.”

Irish score 3 times in 1st 4 possessions Sun Bowl continued from 17

“Clearly, we are gaining a lot of confidence,” Kelly said. “We’ve beaten some good football teams late in the year as we’ve come together and found our identity. It’s going to taste a

whole lot better in the offseason talking about a win.” Notre Dame (8-5) reached the end zone on three of its first four possessions. Rees tossed touchdown passes of 3 and 34 yards to Floyd and Cierre Wood broke free on a 34-yard scoring run

before David Ruffer added field goals from 40, 50 and 19 yards. “It’s not hard when you’re throwing the ball to Mike,” Rees said. He’s such a great player. I knew that if I threw it anywhere near him he was going to make the catch.”

23 racers take part in Telemark event Telemark continued from 17 el­­sen in a sprint classic event. Steamboat skiers emerged as the dominant force in the event, which attracted mostly competitors from across the region. Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club assistant coach Shane Anderson won the men’s division of the race, which is decided by a finisher’s time as well as scores awarded for Telemark turns and jumps. He finished with 104.44 points. Charlie Dresen was second with 106.55, and Jeffrey Gay was

third with 108.07, ensuring an all-locals podium. Steamboat’s Erika Walters, in town on break from Colorado School of Mines, won on the women’s side. She finished with 122.23 points, atop another podium full of Steamboat skiers. Madi McKinstry was second with 126.18, and Zoe Taylor was third with 133.89. “It was good, but it was cold,” Walters said. “I was happy with my runs. It was a lot like training. The upper part was difficult because it was really icy and was a big cranker, hard turn.”

The day was plenty successful for many of those who didn’t make the podium, too. In all, 23 racers took part, including many young Tele skiers. “This is the future of our program and the sport. It was great to see they were out there,” Steamboat coach Ty Upson said. “After all this training, all fall, they actually finally came out and got to do it. All the hard work they’ve done, all the skate skiing, all the weights we’ve lifted and video we’ve watched, finally they got to do it, and that was great.”

Daily Horoscope by Eugenia Last Saturday, Jan. 1, 2011 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Verne Troyer, 42; Dedee Pfeiffer, 47; Don Novello, 68; Frank Langella, 73 Happy Birthday: Taking your time isn’t such a bad idea this year. Impulsive actions will lead to regrets. Weigh every offer, proposal and opportunity carefully. Set your own standards and call the shots. Do not give in to emotional blackmail or to anyone taking advantage of you. Your numbers are 8, 11, 15, 22, 27, 31, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t guess; go to the source and find out. A deal, contract or settlement that is pending can be consummated if you offer the right ingredients into the mix -- wisdom, knowledge and experience. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Everything will be crystal clear as you view the window of opportunity that appears to be developing. A change of scenery will give you a renewed attitude and a positive outlook. Change will be good. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Assess your financial situation and you will feel better about the year ahead. A strict budget will encourage you to put your money where it will benefit you the most. Property, downsizing or making a good long-term investment will help you save. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Restructuring the way you do things and how you deal with people will give you greater insight into how you can get the most out of the people you know and love. It’s time to review and revamp your personal and professional goals. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t boldly jump into the new year without giving careful consideration to where you are headed and how it will affect the people you love. You may be craving change but, if it isn’t the right time or place, you are better off waiting until the moment is better. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Truth hurts but it is a necessity if you want to stop wasting time and start moving forward. Begin this year on the right foot by clearing the air

and getting rid of the people and situations that have been holding you back. Embrace the future with optimism. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Throw procrastination out the door. Start the year off fresh by getting all the odds and ends tied up. Wipe your slate clean so you can focus on the exciting future goals you set. Not everyone will be happy with your choices but it’s you who must find peace of mind. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your mind race and your imagination take over. The ideas you come up with will be spectacular and will pave a path to a better future. Don’t limit the possibilities with negativity. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stop running from emotional matters. Face the music so you can take advantage of existing opportunities. Reveal the secrets you’ve been harboring and you will ease your stress and open doors to a better future. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put as many irons in the fire as possible without spreading yourself too thin. Solicit people you feel can help you accomplish your goals. A unique way of approaching an old idea will pay off later this year. A change of heart will lead to new beginnings. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Start the year off right with an exercise program that will help relieve stress. Follow through with ideas that lead to reforms. A change in lifestyle will be beneficial and will bring you praise and self-satisfaction. ★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the truth. You will receive help from someone who cares about you but, unless you are willing to share your thoughts, you will not get the feedback required to make you see the light. ★★ Birthday Baby: You have drive, determination and courage. You are sensitive and caring and have remarkable insight and uniqueness.
