Bodies of a man & woman found
with fatal stab wounds in kitchen
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The little house that Fred Marshall
built by the water in Northwest Calhoun
County is wrapped in yellow crime
scene tape after a gruesome discovery
Two bodies were there for days
before anyone knew about them, lying
fully clothed, face up on a bloodied
kitchen floor, a man next to a woman.
She had one knife penetration to her
chest; he had many.
"The evidence suggests that each
of the persons fatally stabbed the
other," according to a news release
from Calhoun County Sheriff David
"I have a lot of questions about
what caused it but there's no reason to
believe anyone else other than those
two were involved," he said. He said
the bodies were there five to seven days
before the son of the woman who had
been staying there stopped by for a
visit and saw the horrific scene through
the kitchen window around 7 p.m. on
A positive identification has yet to
be made because of the condition of
the bodies, according to the sheriff,
who said they were sent to the medical
examiner's office in Panama City.
"Although we are confident as to the
identity of both persons that lived in
the home, we have not conclusively
identified the pair."
But the next door neighbors feel
sure it's their good friend, 63-year-
old, Fred Marshall and his girlfriend,
Laurie Adams, who is believed to be
The sheriff summoned the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
mobile crime lab team to the scene,
along with representatives from the
medical examiner's office and state
"After a methodical entry into the
crime scene by the FDLE team, taking
several hours, it was determined that
the pair had each suffered stab wounds
and apparently died of those wounds,"
according to the news release issued
by the sheriff. "It was further observed
that the two doors to the home were
each locked from the inside suggesting
that no one had left the interior of the
home after the altercation."
The sheriff said that the physical
evidence suggests, "The pair had
struggled in the kitchen area of the
home with each of them suffering knife
wounds in multiple places. It appears
that the male walked from the kitchen
to the living room, leaving bloody
footprints on the floor, then returned
to the kitchen and laid down beside
The investigation is being conducted
by the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, the Office of State Attorney

ARREST REPORT TeresaEubanks
Caretaker charged with stealing,
forging checks from 78-year-old
by Teresa Eubanks,
The discovery of ten
forged checks totaling
$1,230 led to the arrest of
a woman who served as
a caretaker for a 78-year-
old Blountstown resident,
according to a report
from the Calhoun County
Jackie Lytle, 47, of
Altha was arrested June
14 on ten counts each of
exploitation of the elderly, JACKI E
forgery, uttering a forged
instrument and petty theft.
An investigation began when the
victim's son turned over printouts of
checks all written to or endorsed by Lytle
from Eva Schmidt's bank account. The
check amounts ranged from $60 to $160.
The son also brought a spreadsheet and
letter showing that Lytle was paid $300 to
care for Schmidt. Concerns arose when
the family noticed additional checks being
written to Lytle.
When questioned by
investigators, Lytle first
said Schmidt allowed
her to write checks
on her account. She
later admitted that her
employer was unaware
of the checks she had
During a search
of Lytle's room at the
her purse, which held
Schmidt's checkbook and
ledger. A box containing three unused
books of checks, some mail that included
Schmidt's credit card statements and a
prescription were found in the room.
Eleven prescription bottles, including
some with pills that had been prescribed to
Schmidt, were found in Lytle's purse and
dresser drawer. Some of the pills included
the narcotic pain reliever, Darvocet.
Young rescuer identified
in Camel Lake incident
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A 10-year-old Altha boy was the quick-
witted hero who grabbed a limp little girl
from under the water and pulled her to
safety June 13.
Three-year-old Jada Owens slipped
under the surface after her float vest came
off at Camel Lake earlier this month.
"I thought she was playing and that she
was about to come up," said David Trejo,
who was nearby in the waist-deep water.
"Then I went down and recognized that she
wasn't moving," he said, explaining that
she didn't react when he playfully stuck his
hand in front of her. David then went under
the water and looked at the little girl's face.
When he saw that her eyes were closed, "I
He began yelling for help as he pulled her
from the water. His aunt, Victoria McClure
of Clarksville, responded, handing her
10-month-old baby to someone as she went
into the water. "She came and helped me
tote herto shore and then she started doing
CPR," David said. Others then responded,
including Miley Williams of Telogia,
whose First Responder training came in

got the water out of her lungs before she

We would like to thank every-

and said prayers during our time
of loss. Daddy had a lot of good
friends, especially Mr. Pat his

We would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to
the good people in Calhoun and Liberty Counties who came forth
to help with the search and rescue and recovery of Jefferie Rector
whom was thrown out of our boat on May 30 in the Apalachicola
River. I've always loved this community and now I know why. Ev-
eryone comes together when there is a crisis I don't know what I
wold have done without friends and family. Thank you for all the
prayers, flowers, food, phone calls and visits.
This has been a tragic loss to me as Jeff was my second son. He
came to live with us when he was nine years old and has been with
us since. But I have so many good memories I will treasure forever.
I would like to thank Roman Wood of the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department for contacting Henry so he could be the one to tell me
the news. Thank you to the deputies who searched and those in the
Calhoun County helicopter. Also thanks to the Liberty County citi-
zens and Sheriff's office.
Many thanks to all my close friends at Blountstown Health and
Rehab Center for their prayers, food and more. Thanks also to the
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital staff for monetary contributions, food,
visits and giving me extra days off. Thanks to Covenant Hospice for
their visits, food and friendship. Thanks to my wonderful neighbors
especially, Alva Martin and the Methodist Church for arranging din-
ner before the funeral.
If there was any bit of wisdom I can leave to anyone for Jeff it is:
(1) USE your kill switch on your boat.
(2) tell your children you love them every day as God only loans
them to us.
Sincerely, Debi Thornton Smith and Family

Bomber buzzed Blountstown

submitted by Mary Marchant
The following is Maurice Marchant's description of the RB36 and the "Buzzing of
This Bomber Aircraft had a wing span of 230 feet (just 70 feet short of a football field).
There were six pusher props and four jet engines; a fuel capacity of four (4) rail road cars;
twenty-two (22) crew members. The fully loaded weight was 450,000 pounds. This par-
ticular aircraft was assigned to me, R.M Marchant, in 1953. I have 2,000 hours in it as an
Air Craft Commander.
On a flight from the home base, Ramsey Air Force Base, Puerto Rico to the Repair
Shop in San Antonio, Texas, I had an occasion to "buzz" Blountstown at water tank level.
We came in from Bristol, made a left turn at the Drive-In Theater, held the turn until Pete
McClellan's house and proceeded back to Blountstown and up Main Street.
I was low enough to recognize my mother-in-law, Ida Belle McClellan, standing in
front of the Ford Place. She was standing in the street with her car door and her mouth
open. Kids at the high school jumped out the windows. It's been said with all ten engines
burning and turning, the noise at that altitude cracked setting hen's eggs, and cows went
Had it not been for Terrell Yon soothing the high school principal, I probably would
have been reported for airways violation.
I could not resist the temptation to "buzz" home.
There were few bold pilots and nearly no old bold pilots.
The deadline is June 30, 2009 for the stories to be in the Calhoun County Heritage Book.
There will not be any extensions added. If you need to know if your family is listed in the
book, you may contact the committee. There are still a lot of you out there who have not
submitted a story. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Mary Lou Holley

Chipola event to honor the late 'Big Sam' Mitchell
leader "Big Sam" Mitchell will
be honored at a ceremony, din-
ner and dance celebrating his life
on Aug. 29 at the National Guard
Armory in Marianna.
The event will honor the for-
mer Florida legislator's legacy
while raising funds to create a
perpetual scholarship in his name
at Chipola College, where he
played on the college's first foot-
ball and basketball teams in 1947.
"Big Sam," developed a larger
than life persona during his 40-
year career as a coach, principal
and father figure to thousands of
children in Vernon and Washing-
He began his coaching career
at Campbellton High School in
1952 where he had a 24-2 record
in his first season.
He was called to service in the
United States Army, and upon re-
turning home from military duty,
Mitchell established himself at
Vernon High School, where he
compiled an overall career record
as a basketball coach of 396-59.
As a football coach, Mitchell
compiled an impressive record
of 113 wins and only 17 losses.
Mitchell's basketball team won
the state championship in 1957.
He was chosen basketball coach
of the year in 1957, and football
coach of the year in 1961.
Mitchell was appointed prin-
cipal of Vernon High School
in 1967 and served until 1977.
He was elected to the Board of
Directors of the Florida High
School Activities Association
from 1968-1975, and served
as vice-president from 1975 to
Mitchell was elected by the
people of this area to serve in the
Florida Legislature. He served
for more than 20 years, receiv-
ing many legislative awards. He
completed his term as speaker
pro tempore during the 1988-
1990 sessions. At the time of
his retirement from the Florida
House, Mitchell was one of the
longest serving and most re-
spected members in the history
of the Florida legislature. For-
mer Rep. Robert Trammell who
served alongside Mitchell in the
Florida House for many years,
said, "Big Sam was very proud
of his rural beginnings. He never
forgot who he was or where he
came from. Even though he was
one of the most powerful and
influential leaders in the state of
Florida, he always preferred the
simple things in life and was al-
ways a friend to the little man."
After retiring in 1994, he
worked with the Florida Lakes
Department for three years.
Mitchell was born Aug. 2, 1929,
in Chipley. He married Nellie
Henders on Sept. 4, 1951, and
they had two children, Brenda
and Sammie Jean. After retire-
ment he settled down in Vernon,
where he ran a small seafood
business as a hobby, which al-
lowed him to make new friends
until his death in November
The Aug. 29 dinner is hosted
by "Friends of Sam Mitchell"
and sponsored by the Chipola
Appreciation Club. The event
will celebrate Mitchell's life
and contributions to the people
of this area while helping to en-
dow a scholarship in his memory
at the school that gave him his
start. Chipola president Dr. Gene
Prough, said, "Sam loved Chipo-
la and he gave the college credit
for providing him the opportu-
nity to earn an education. I know
that Sam would be proud that we
are establishing this scholarship
in his name to insure that other
people have the same opportu-
nity that he had."
The event will begin with a
social hour at 6 p.m., followed
by dinner at 7 p.m. Entertain-
ment will begin at 8 p.m., featur-
ing the world-famous Embers,
the Raleigh, NC, band renowned
for its exciting renditions of nos-
talgic "beach music."

To help customers begin saving energy
and money, FPU compiled a list of 10
easy and low cost energy-saving tips.
For more conservation ideas and energy-
saving projects, make sure to visit the
Big Tent Event.
1. Keep the thermostat as high as
comfortably possible during the summer
months. A good rule of thumb is to set
your thermostat for 78 degrees. Each
degree below 78, can cost 5-6 percent
more for cooling energy.
2. Fans cost less to use than the air
conditioner rely on them as much as
possible, but be sure to turn them off
when you're not in the room.
3. Keep windows shaded from direct
sunlight whenever possible. Blinds and
curtains will block the sun and keep
your house cooler. Adding awnings on
windows or exterior shades on porches
are effective ways to reduce heat gain in
4. Set your water heater to 120 degrees
or the "Low" setting to save energy. If
your dishwasher does not have a booster
heat element, you may need to increase
the temperature to 140 degrees for good
5. Only run the washing machine and
dishwasher when you have a full load.
6. Wash clothes in cold water most of
the time. Clean the lint trap before every
dryer load to save energy and reduce run
7. Replace light bulbs with ENERGY
STAR' compact fluorescent lamps (CFL),
which use two-thirds less energy.
8. Fill in holes around doors and
windows to keep the cool air in and the
hot air out.
9. Use the sleep mode on the computer
and other electronics when not in use.
10. Use a microwave whenever possible;
it takes less time and uses less energy.

publicly traded utility company, which
since 1924, has provided safe, reliable

Safety program held
at Sutton Creek Apts.
SRO Warren Tanner of the Blountstown Police Depart-
ment and Fire Chief Ben Hall of the Blountstown Fire De-
partment (shown at right) conducted a safety program for
the parents and children at Sutton Creek Apartments on
Mayo Street in Blountstown Monday. SRO Tanner talked
about the dangers of talking to strangers and told the kids:
"A stranger is anyone YOU don't know!" SRO Tanner also
talked about gun safety and taught the kids a simple saying
to remember when they encounter a firearm in the home:
"Don't touch, leave the room and go tell a grown-up!".
Fire Chief Ben Hall spoke about fireworks safety and
told them that fireworks should only be used when a re-
sponsible adult is around. Adults were reminded that any
firework that launches off the ground or explodes (like fire-
crackers or bottle rockets) are illegal in Florida.
Chief Hall also talked with the families about staying
hydrated and drinking plenty of water while outside play-

DMV Fee Increases
September 1, 2009
Beginning on September 1, vehicle own-
ers can expect to pay more for tag and titling
a vehicle in the state of Florida, as well as
significantly higher fees for registration renew-
The fee increases were enacted by the
2009 Florida Legislature and are service fee
transactions, not tax increases. However all
of the increased fees will be remitted back
to the State to be used primarily for funding
the Department of Education, Department of
Transportation and the Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehicles. These fee
increases are not established or controlled
by the Department of Motor Vehicles or your
County Tax Collector.
Individuals can renew their registrations up to
90 days prior to their birthday and 2-year
renewals are also available to lock in
the current fee rates up to August 31
(no postmarks will be accepted).
The goal of our office is to make
the public aware of these increased
fees and to encourage customers
who are eligible to go ahead and renew
at the current rates to avoid paying the fee in-
creases this year.

Floridians urged to seek safe shelter during thunderstorms
TALLAHASSEE Floridians often think of hur-
ricanes and tornadoes when they think of hazardous
weather in the Sunshine State, but many would be sur-
prised that, on average, lightning strikes are responsible
for more weather-related deaths than all of our weather
hazards combined. In 2008, 28 people died from light-
ning strikes nationally. This year, the recent lightning-
related deaths recorded in Broward and Highlands coun-
ties, underscores the danger of this common threat.
The National Weather Service recognizes June 21-27
as Lightning Safety Week and officials from the Florida
Division of Emergency Management urge all residents
and visitors to have a plan of action for lightning condi-
tions as they would for any other disaster.
"Lightning is a serious and deadly threat, especially in
Florida where thunderstorms form quickly," said Ruben
D. Almaguer, interim director of the Florida Division of
Emergency Management. "Floridians should pay close
attention to changing weather conditions when outdoors
and seek shelter when thunder is heard."
WHEN THUNDER ROARS, GO INDOORS!
KNOW THE 30/30 RULE.
All thunderstorms produce lightning. Did you know
that lightning can travel horizontally from thunderstorm
clouds and strike as far as 10 miles away from any rain-
fall? Residents should know that if they hear thunder,
they are in danger of being struck by lightning and
should seek safe shelter immediately.
Week is ddda
The most dangerous place to be during a thunder-
storm is in an open area. Nearly half of all lightning
deaths occur in open areas. Trees may offer shelter from
the rain, but provide no protection from lightning. Cov-
ered picnic shelters, tents and convertibles also offer no
protection from lightning. During a thunderstorm, the
safest place to be is in a building, such as a home, away
from the windows. Vehicles with metal roofs also pro-
vide safe shelter from lightning.
Florida emergency management officials encourage
families and businesses to incorporate the "30/30 Rule"
when conducting outdoor activities. This two-part rule
states that people should first seek immediate shelter
once the time between a lightning flash and thunder is
30 seconds or less.
The second part of this rule states that people should
remain in safe shelter for 30 minutes following the final
clap of thunder. Many lightning strike victims assumed
that the threat had passed once a thunderstorm's rains
had ended, when in fact lightning can travel far from the
core of a storm's downpours.
Floridians should always be aware of weather condi-
tions when participating in activities outdoors and have
a plan in case thunderstorms develop. A portable NOAA
all-hazards radio will provide weather forecast updates
and can audibly alert you if a severe thunderstorm watch
or warning is issued. To learn more go to www.lighning-
If a person is struck by lightning, call 911 and get
medical help immediately. Lightning strikes can cause
cardiac arrest, burs and nerve damage. Bystanders are
in no danger by initiating medical aid and CPR; the vic-
tim will not carry an electrical charge. Some deaths can
be prevented if the victim receives the proper first aid

West torches East in All-Star game, 21-12
by Jim Mclntosh
MARIANNA -- Even though
the thermometer read 105 at the
end of the game, Brandon Smith
made it sizzling hot on Chipola
College's baseball field last Sat-
With the game tied 2-2 in
the top of the second inning, he
launched a grand slam bomb
over the center field fence that
put his West team ahead to stay,
6-2, and ignited them on their
15-10 run in the first annual Big
Bend All-Star Game, 21-12.
That play allowed Smith, who
had 2 singles, 5 RBI, and scored
twice, to secure the Most Valu-
able Player award.
After being hit by a pitch to
open the game, Jackson Coun-
ty's Zach Henderson stole sec-
ond base. Bay County's Tony
Keller reached on a one out
walk and Calhoun County's Ben
Faurot scored Henderson with a
ringing single to right field. The
Horsemen's Josh McIntosh lift-

Liberty County's Richie Smith
drove in the first two runs of the
East All-Star team with a double
to center field that scored Justin
McCroan and Liberty County's
Travis Anderson. That made it a

Justin Cherry of Bay County

inning by drawing a lead off
walk. With one out Jackson

Reaching after being hit by a

ring up 4 more runs in the third
inning. His teammate, Justin
Cherry, scored him by driving a
double into the right field fence.
Jackson County's Raymond
Bentley brought Cherry across
the plate with a single through
the left side of the infield. Then
Zach Henderson and Bran-
don Smith added back-to-back
singles to load the bases. Tony
Keller picked a RBI on a walk
that scored Bentley. After Hen-
derson stole home, it extended
the West's lead to 10-3.
In the fifth inning the West
added 2 more runs. Brandon
Smith's grass-burning single
made it through the left side.
With one out Ben Faurot reached
on an infield single. Josh McIn-
tosh ripped a double to the cen-

Travis Anderson's double and
Richie Smith's 2-run home run
was part of a 7-run fifth inning
that helped the East All-Stars
narrow the gap to 12-10.
But the West got back 4 of
those runs in the sixth inning.
Calhoun County's Tad Scott led
off by hammering a double into
right field. Bay County's Alex
Register's 2-bagger to left field
brought Scott home. A single
to center field by Raymond
Bentley and the third double of
the inning to right field by Bay
County's Jimmy Hill scored

New program to trap
destructive beetle that
kills ash trees started
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced the estab-
lishment of a statewide emerald
ash borer (EAB) trapping pro-
gram to help prevent the intro-
duction of this dangerous pest of
ash trees. Bronson is also warn-
ing the public that firewood and
other wood products can con-
tain destructive pests, including
EAB, and is urging people to
take steps to reduce the chances
of possible infestations.
The emerald ash borer, a me-
tallic green beetle about half an
inch in length, has been on the
move since its U.S. arrival in
2002. It has already killed mil-
lions of ash trees in Michigan,
Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Mis-
souri, Pennsylvania, Maryland,
Virginia, West Virginia, Wis-
consin, and most recently in
Control of any wood-boring
insect, once established, is very
difficult so prevention is criti-
cal. States already infested with
EAB, as well as the federal gov-
ernment, regulate movement of
firewood, nursery stock and oth-
er ash wood materials. Florida
is in the process of developing
regulatory rules that will limit
the movement of firewood and
other unprocessed wood prod-
ucts into and within the state.
Florida has four known va-
rieties of ash trees: white, pop,
green, and pumpkin, which
grow primarily throughout the
northern part of the state.
The Department has placed
traps in Florida counties identi-
fied as high-risk areas because
of the possibility of infested fire-
wood being brought in by camp-
ers from states where emerald
ash borer has been found. Two
hundred traps have been placed
and are monitored monthly.
Entomologists at the Division
of Plant Industry examine trap
contents monthly at their head-
quarters in Gainesville.
Symptoms of EAB infesta-
tion on ash trees include a gen-
eral decline of tree health and
canopy dieback. Look for split
bark, serpentine larval galleries,
and D-shaped exit holes. Lar-
vae feed on the inner bark of ash
trees, disrupting the tree's abil-
ity to transport water and nutri-
ents. Extensive larval damage
can lead to tree death.
The redbay ambrosia beetle
is another devastating insect,
now found in several Florida
counties, that infests red bay
and other Florida trees, includ-
ing avocado trees. The redbay
ambrosia beetle carries laurel
wilt, a disease that is respon-
sible for the death of thousands
of Florida trees. The beetle can
also be moved on firewood and
host tree debris.
The public can help prevent
the introduction of wood-boring
insects by following these sim-
-- Do not transport firewood
from other states or within
Florida. Emerald ash borer and
other dangerous pests and dis-
eases can hitchhike on firewood
infesting new areas at an alarm-
-- When building a fire, use
local firewood only.
-- Burn all firewood at your
campsite before you leave.
-- Do not take any firewood
home with you.
To further protect Florida's
plant industry, the Department
recommends that you:
-- Report any suspicious plant
pests or diseases.
-- Don't pack a pest. When
you travel, don't pack food or
other products in your luggage
that might contain harmful pests
-- Purchase only certified
plants from registered nurser-
Bronson is urging the public
to help protect native ash trees
and Florida's natural environ-
ment by preventing the intro-
duction of harmful pests and
diseases like the emerald ash
borer. If you think you have
seen an emerald ash borer or a
diseased ash tree, contact 1-888-

A new weapon in the fight
against the mole cricket
Mole crickets can be by Theresa Friday,
serious pests of Florida Horticuture Extension Agent,
lawns, gardens and pastures. Sana Coun
But before you panic and Santa Rosa Count
begin treating your lawn, let's
learn about a new strategy for mole cricket
There are several pest species of mole
crickets. We have a native mole cricket in this
area, but it is rarely a pest. It's the introduced,
or exotic, species that cause all the trouble.
They were accidentally introduced to the
southeastern United States in the early 1900s,
almost certainly hitchhiking in ship's ballast.
How do you know if you have a mole
cricket problem? Mole crickets feed on plant
foliage and roots. In the lawn, they will
eventually cause a brown or dead spot. Other
common signs include narrow tunnels and
small, raised mounds of soil. However, don't
assume that every mound or every dead spot
indicates mole crickets. Many things can cause
a dead spot and small mounds can be created
by earthworms. The only sure-fire way of
knowing you have a mole cricket problem is
to flush them out.
The best way to monitor for mole crickets
is the soap flush technique. In a sprinkling
can, mix two tablespoons of lemon liquid
dishwashing soap in two gallons of water.
Apply this solution to a 2-foot by 2-foot area
where you suspect mole crickets. It's bestto do
this late in the day and after the lawn has been
recently watered. Mole crickets are not evenly
distributed throughout the turf, so repeat the
soap flush in several areas of your lawn. If
two to four mole crickets emerge within a few
minutes, control measures are justified.
How do you get rid of mole crickets?
Chemical control is possible but you must
choose the right chemical and the right time
Late June or early July is considered to be
the most ideal time to apply control measures
based on extensive research and knowledge
of the mole cricket life cycle.
It's important to treat when
the young mole crickets
begin actively feeding in
early summer. The longer you
allow them to feed and grow the more difficult
the task of managing them. Adults are very
difficult to control because of their ability to
tunnel. Tunneling allows the adults to avoid
contact with many conventional pesticides.
There are number of products on the market
to control mole crickets. Look for products
that contain bifenthrin, cyfluthrin, fipronil,
imidacloprid or lambda-cyhalothrin. Be sure
to read and follow all label directions.
The exciting news is that non-chemical
control measures are helping to win the battle
against the mole cricket. Biological control
agents including wasps, nematodes and flies
imported from South America are now being
used. They have helped to reduce mole
cricket populations in the Gainesville area by
95 percent, and these biological controls are
spreading throughout Florida.
One biological control agent is active in
the Florida Panhandle. An imported wasp
(Larra bicolor) attacks pest mole crickets. This
solitary wasp, called the mole cricket hunter,
stings the pest mole cricket and lays an egg.
The wasp larva begins feeding on the mole
cricket and kills it within two weeks.
The Larra bicolor wasp is currently present in
46 of Florida's 67 counties including Escambia,
Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties.
So help is here in the form of a solitary,
copper and black colored wasp. Let's wish
her well in the fight against the pest mole

June 28 to July 4
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Getting in touch with your
inner fighter could be harder than
you think this week, Aries. You
might feel a little lost and not
easily roused to action.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, your friends might
provoke your angry side, but
you'll have to work hard to
remain level-headed. Seeing
things from another person's
perspective could help.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
Don't worry about what anyone
else think, Gemini, you have to
do what you feel is right. How-
ever, you may or may not be able
to decide what that is right now.
CANCER June 22/July 22
You will feel rejuvenated this
week, Cancer, and better in touch
with your feelings. It'll help you
embark on a campaign of sorts
for good reasons.
LEO July 23/Aug23
A conflict regarding what
you perceive to be the case and
what really is the case could
cause you to have a short temper
this week, Leo. Throwing a
temper tantrum is foolish.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, you don't like being
bossed around by others this
week, especially when they
aren't as smart as you. Remain
patient and don't show off
your smarts too much.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
You may be working harder than
usual, Libra, and you're not
getting anywhere. Don't be
discouraged, however. Things
will change for the better soon.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Your pent-up energy needs to be
released, Scorpio. Hop on the
treadmill or get out and do some
more exercise to release your
frustrations this week.
SAGITTARIUS-Nov 23/Dec 21
Although you may attempt
to use your charms, Sagittarius,
others see through the act you're
putting on and call your bluff.
You will have to try another
tactic to get what you want.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, choose your battles
carefully this week, otherwise
you could alienate more people
than you intend to. The sun shines
on a project you have started.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Any current money dilemma
you have now is easily remedied,
Aquarius, because you truly are
in a good financial standing.
You may be doling out
money advice to others.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
You have swift reactions
to things, Pisces, which lead
others to believe you may be
using too much force.
