department's master.plan.


West Columbia station


sees improvements

Renovations and upgrades are part
of the Columbia County Fire
Department's master plan. '
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The Columbia County Fire Department is continu-
ing to upgrade and improve the services it provides to
the county.
The most recent upgrade in services is taking place
at the West Columbia Volunteer Fire Department
(Station No. 43), 2318 Pinemount Road, which is
undergoing renovation and expansion work. The ren-
ovation work consists of upgrading the station's living
quarters, while the expansion work consists of adding.
two bays to the station.
Columbia County Fire Department Chief Tres
Atkinson said the plan to expand the station has been
in effect since the county fire department was initially
set-up in May 2006.
"Ourinitial goal was to have that station open as aC.C
paid station," he said. "Because of circumstances
we've had to move in and out of there and try to start
the expansion work."
The interior expansion work began in September
with work in the living quarters' area. The station's
living quarters consists of a day room, office area and
sleeping quarters for the personnel on duty.
Work on the building's bay area began in
November.:; N
The station currently has two trucks, an engine and
tanker, but the additional bays will allow the station to
house a quick response unit and a brush truck. The
trucks are already in service, but stationed at a differ-
ent site. JASON MATTHEW WALKERiLe C4, fepri
Atkinson said the upgrades at the station will allow David Norris saws off a piece of wood while working on
the fire department to have quicker response times, the attic of Station No. 43. Crews will be working on
"Our volunteers at that station, as with all our upgrading living quarters and adding two docking bays
FIREHOUSE continued on 8A for fire trucks as part of the station's improvements.

Flue fire


burns


home
Minimal damage done to
structure in moving blaze
that was quickly put out.,
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
A faulty flue has been listed as the
cause of a Thursday morning structure
fire which caused minimal damage to a
local home, Lake City Fire Department
officials reported.
The Lake City Fire Department was
dispatched to the scene at 10:45, a.m.
after the call of a structure fire at 426 NE
Buddy St., came in.
Firefighters responded to the scene
with two units and a chief's vehicle.
Lake City Fire Department Battalion
Chief Buddy Crews said the cause of the
fire was a faulty flue.
The flue is the shaft used for the pas-
sage of smoke in a chimney. If function-
ing properly when a fire is active, it
allows smoke to flow freely upward
through the chimney and also allows for
a light draft of air to be pulled across the
fire to keep it burning.
"The fire was able to come out of the
primary flue and around the makeshift
secondary flue and into the interior
wall," Crews said, as he noted the flue
was being used with a cast-iron stove.
"We just had to breech the wall and
extinguish the fire before it traveled into
the attic."

Dim bulbs

light our

Capitol

A great many unkind things
have been said about our
current Congress -- many
of them merited. But
nothing this august body
has done this session has more
exemplified its meddling ineptitude
than its decision to phase out
incandescent light bulbs, of all things,
beginning in 2012.
As explained by Reuters in a recent
report, the measure signed by
President Bush on Dec. 19 requires
lighting to use "up to 30 percent less
energy," effectively outlawing the
brilliant device engineered 125 years
ago by Thomas Edison.
Proponents of the measure argue that
replacing all 4 billion Edison bulbs in
the United States with energy-efficient
alternatives will cut carbon dioxide
emissions from power plants by
100 million tons and dramatically
reduce household utility bills by
more than $18 billion a year.
But how will household budgets fare
under the greater cost of compact
fluorescent lights surpassing $5 per
bulb vs. about 75 cents for their
incandescent counterparts? And let's
not look too closely at the additional
pollution that will enter the
environment should the mercury inside
CFLs escape. Moreover, will Americans
especially aging baby boomers be
satisfied with the poorer, harsher light
shed by CFLs? Or will they merely use
more CFLs to supply the same amount
of light cast by a single incandescent
bulb?

HIG H LIG HTS
IN HIST'O'R'Y "

Today is Friday, Dec. 28, the 362nd
day of 2007. There are three days left in
the year.
On Dec. 28, 1917, the New York
Evening Mail published "A Neglected
Anniversary," a facetious essay by H.L.
Mencken supposedly recounting the
history of bathtubs in America. (For
example, Mencken "claimed" the first
American bathtub made its debut in the
Cincinnati home of grain dealer Adam
Thompson on Dec. 20, 1842, and that the
first White House bathtub was .installed in
1851 at the order of President Millard
Fillmore.)
In 1694, Queen Mary II of England
died after more than five years of joint rule
* with her husband, King William Ill.
In 1832, John C. Calhoun became
the first vice president of the United States
to resign, stepping down over differences
with President'Jackson.
In 1846, Iowa became the 29th state
to be admitted to the Union.

COMMENTARY



GOP agenda: Illegals


By PETER SCHRAAG
Sacramento Bee
Who said this?
"Immigration
to this
country is
increasing
and is making its greatest
relative increase from races
most alien to the body of the
American people and from the
lowest and most illiterate
classes among those races ...
half of whom have no
occupation and most of whom
represent the rudest form of
labor.
'The immigrants who come
to the United States reduce
the rate of wages by ruinous
competition, and then take
their savings out of the
country.
"Home as a foreign country.
... They have no
interest or stake in country
and never become American
citizens."
Many, he went on, are
genetically prone to crime,
insanity and disease.
Five points credit if you
guessed it isn't Rep. (and late
presidential candidate) Tom
"throw all illegals out"
Tancredo of Colorado, or Mitt
Romney, or Rush Limbaugh or
Lou Dobbs of CNN.
Two more points if you
recognized it as not coming

LETTERS TO

Patriots need to
stand up now
To the Editor:
I've read in the paper that
there is a person in California
who is trying to take "Under
God" out of our Pledge of
Allegiance to our flag.
He was turned down once
by the Supreme Court
because he did not have full
custody of his son who he is
suing. As a member of the
VFW, American Legion,
Korean War veterans, I think
this one thing, if passed, will
be over my dead body.
I think every veteran and
every good American should
look into this and write the
president and congressman.
I find the people who did
the least for our freedom do
the most complaining and
want to change the laws that
protect our freedoms.
When I was scared and
lonesome and afraid that I
would die in Korea, God gave
me the courage to survive.
I said the Lord's prayer
over and over again and He
came through for me.
Let's unite, Americans, and
stop these unthinkable things
that are destroying our
freedom and way of life.
Frank Laber
Lake City


from anyone in this century. A
perfect 10 if you traced it back
to the last decades of the 19th
century.
The author, in a pair of
articles on "The Restriction of
Immigration" for The Atlantic
magazine in 1891, was Rep.
(later Sen.) Henry Cabot
Lodge of Massachusetts. His
undesirables were Jews,
Italians, Poles and
Hungarians, people like
Tancredo's Sicilian
great-grandparents. In those
days, of course, everybody
was undocumented.
So you can say that the
current debate among GOP
candidates Rudy Giuliani and
Romney about who would be
the meanest, toughest guy on
illegal immigration is in an
American tradition almost as
old as immigration itself.
Giuliani's father, an Italian
immigrant who served prison
time for robbery, and was a
collector for Giuliani's
mob-connected uncle, would
have been a perfect example
for Lodge.
The tradition goes back to
the Salem witch trials and
"No Irish Need Apply" and
'"The Chinese Must Go," and
"Japs keep moving."
Not all of it was overtly
racist
The official targets of the
Great Red Scare of the 1920s


were communists and
anarchists, although most of
them also happened to be
Italian immigrants. In the
notorious Sacco-Vanzetti case,
two Italian immigrant
anarchists were convicted and
executed for a
robbery-murder in Braintree,
Mass., in 1920 that they
probably didn't commit.
And there was, of course,
the pursuit of communists,
alleged communists and
"fellow travelers" in the 1950s,
and the blacklists and loyalty
oaths that came with it -
Americans were encouraged
(and often pressured) to
denounce colleagues and
associates they suspected.
Hollywood producers,
politicians and university
trustees, including the regents
of the University of California,
folded under the pressure.
Many of the blacklisted never
recovered.
The present furor about
illegal immigrants isn't quite
like any of those things.
But the attempt to exploit
anti-immigrant rage and fear
by politicians-such as Romney
and Giuliani and by the radio
talkers that thrive on the issue
comes awfully close.

THE EDITOR


Listen to law
enforcement
To the Editor:
How many have read about
the use of Tasers? Where
does listening come in?
I was raised believing that
when one in authority says to
do something, regardless of
how I felt about the
command, I was to do it, then
file a complaint if I felt I was
wronged by the officer.
I believe according to
English, the word stop means
not to resist, fight, curse or
threaten.
If one disobeys the law,
they have by law the right to
use whatever force that is
necessary to detain or protect
society as needed.
They have guidelines and
regulations that have to be
followed.
I would rather be tasered
than hit with a baton or shot
by a gun.
Many want to blame law
enforcement for excessive use
of force.
We as adults need to take
responsibility for our own
actions and stop putting the
blame on "how we were
raised."
We are what we want to be,
live the way we want to live,
act the way we want to act. If


we look in the mirror and we
will see the culprit at fault We
should be grateful for the law
enforcement, firefighters,
emergency responders, and
those that work as correction
officers, -keeping our
community safe and sound, as
much as they can.
Think for just a moment
about how much time it takes
to work and complete each
report.
We have approximately
10-20 officers on any given
shift which includes state,
county, and city.
This county covers
approximately 800-900 square
miles, which means every
officer has to cover
approximately 40-90 miles,
plus many calls they have per
shift
We have no room to
complain even though in time
of need we want them there
"right now."
I have learned by talking
with the officers the duties
required of them.
Thank you, to all of you for
'your work and your caring for
us.
May God bless, and
protect each of you in your
endeavors.

Teen



driving



turmoil,



worry

As I watched my girls aged 11,
8 and 6 roll around the house on
the new scooters they received
for Christmas, I found myself
offering the usual "be careful!
Watch where you're going, not so fast!"
What they don't know is that I can't see
them taking off merrily on their little scooters
without flashing forward to the teen driving
years when they'll want to take off merrily inr
cars.
That's because I recently read 'Teenagers
and Cars: A Deadly Mix" by Gerri Hirshey in
the New York Times.
I may roll my eyes at helicopter parents
today, but I plan on leading the squadron
tomorrow
when my kids
face the very
lethal
combination of
teens and
autos. I know, I
know, actually
telling my
teens they can't Betsy Hart
drive after dark letterstohart(@comcastnet
or with other
teens, both of which dramatically increase
their chance of crashing and the combination
of which is especially deadly for young
drivers, seems impossible.
Butowhat struck. me from the Hirsheypiece
wasn't the litany of scarystatistics involving
teens and driving, or the real life, or rather
the real death, accounts of recent teen driver
fatalities she detailed.
It's that Hirshey recounts that according to
one recent poll, while barely one-third of
parents think teen drivers are generally safe
drivers, 88 percepth- 88 percent of parents
believe their own teens are safe drivers. (Try
to do that math.) And more than half of
parents believe that if their child is involved in
a crash it will be someone else's fault
Here's a sample of what teens themselves
say, according to a 2005 survey of 1,000
people ages 15 and 17, conducted by' the
Allstate Foundation:
0 More than half (56 percent) of young
drivers use cell phones while driving
(a high-risk factor for accidents.)
p 69 percent said that they speed to keep
up with traffic..
A 64 percent said they speed to go through
a yellow light
As Allstate puts it, no other hazard or
behavior comes close to claiming as many
teen lives as teen driving. Six thousand teens
a year die in car accidents, with 300,000 more
teens injured in accidents. What's most
sobering about the report? Allstate recounts
that traditional "safe driving" courses and
programs targeted at teens, which have
proliferated in the last decade, have not led to
safer teen driving. That's probably because,
Allstate says, we now know through science
(what parents used to know in their hearts!)
that the brains of teenagers are not physically
wired to make good executive decisions. They
are wired in many ways to take risks..
(And by the way, every parent knows that
that's particularly the case when it comes to
boys.)
What .does show promise in bringing down
teen driving fatalities is later driving ages or
phased-in driving restrictions which most
states are implementing but which too few
parents know about or enforce.
Anyway back to "not my kid." As scary as
that attitude may be when it comes to our
children and driving, it's really just a symptom
of a much larger problem. It's where we
parents so let down our kids. We used to
understand that our children came into the
world full of naturally foolish tendencies and it
was our job to love them and to civilize them
and in the process protect them from
themselves.
Now, 88 percent of parents believe their
own kids are safe drivers, when the statistics
and even the kids themselves so dramatically
demonstrate otherwise.
It's a fine thing for our love for our children


' to be a little near-sighted at times.
But whether our kids are young and
scootering or older and driving or anytime in
between, it's useful to remember that when
our love for our children is blind it can also
be dangerous.

Betsy Hart is an author and a television
talk-show host.

Tucker's Steaks & Seafood
will host an early New Year's
Eve Celebration at 6:30 p.m.
Saturday downtown. The
black tie event will include a
five course meal and live
entertainment, with all pro-
ceeds to benefit the Lifestyle
Enrichment Center.
"It will be a lot of fun on
Saturday night and raise a
little bit of money for the sen-
ior program," said executive
director of Columbia County
Senior Services Debbie
Freeman.
The funds raised will be
used to help. retire the
mortgage for the Lifestyle
Enrichment Center, she said.
The idea for a formal fund
raising event came from peo-
ple within the community, said
Dr. Debra Griffin, event
organizer.
"People wanted to wear
tuxedos and dress up,"
Griffin said. "It's a pre-New
Year's Eve celebration and an
end-of-the-year fundraiser."
Each of the meal's courses
will be paired with the appro-
priate wine. The appetizer will
be a tuna ahai, followed by a
romaine salad, seafood bisque
soup, filet with stuffed shrimp
and fried cheesecake for
desert, Griffin said.
The idea for the wine pair-
ing with the five course meal
came from an event held
earlier in the year where it
was done and was incredibly
successful, she said.
"It will be fun. We don't get


"It's a
pre-New Year's
Eve celebration."

event organizer

a lot of five course dinners and
the wines that match up with
everything," Freeman said.
Musical group Last 2 Leave
from Jacksonville will play
contemporary hits until the
party ends at midnight, when
celebratory champagne will
be served.
The event is an unusual
fundraiser for the center, but
Freeman said she is looking
forward to the event.
"We don't do an awful lot of
black tie events. It's such a dif-'
ferent thing for us to do,"
Freeman said, "when you
raise funds, its always, 'what'
can you do that people would
like to do and still be able to
sponsor you organization?'"
The $125 ticket pays for the,
meal, wine and champagne,
Freeman said.
Griffin said everyone,
should come out and party at.
Tucker's this Saturday.
"Lake City never has a good
band like this and the event is
to benefit the. Lifestyle -
Enrichment Center and if peo-
ple haven't made their charita-
ble contributions for this year,,
it is their last opportunity to
do so for tax purposes,"
Griffin said.
Tickets can be purchased
today and Saturday by
calling 755-0235 and can be.,
purchased at the door.

stations, is very good, but the
response times are limited to
people getting up, getting
dressed and going to pick up
the trucks," he said. "This will
quicken that response. When
you have people living in the
quarters, the initial response
is-much quicker. This will def-
initely make our response
times less and it surely will
help in saving property and
lives."
The fire department will
continue to depend on volun-
teers to bring back-up appara-
tus to fire scenes.
West Columbia VFD Chief
Jerry Stanley said he is look-
ing forward to the renovation
and expansion work being
completed.


'The paid guys are going to
be an asset to the district," he
said. "We're looking forward
to working with them. The dif-
ference is going to be great
because we're going to have
paid personnel there already
to respond and we'll just
be complimenting the paid
department.",
Atkinson said one of the
principal reasons behind the
expansion work at the station
was to have paid staff occupy
the station to lower ISO rat-
ings.
"Our goal is to be in there
by the end of January or in
early,February, back with paid
staff," Atkinson said.
As the fire department
shifts from volunteers to paid


personnel, there will be two
paid firefighters on duty per
shift and the department will
have three shifts.
The expansion work is part
of the county fire department's
master plan, which called for a
county fire department station
in the north, south, east and
west area of the county.
However, due to the volume of
calls handled by the fire
department, county officials
have had to alter their initial
fire station plans.
"As we've grown and been
able to see where our major
amount of calls are, that's
where we've had to make
some adjustments in person-
nel," Atkinson said.

Columbia High hosts
Fort White, four others
in annual tournament.
By CHRIS WHITE
cwhite@lakecityreporter.com
While most students are
enjoying their time off, the
Columbia High and Fort White
High boys soccer teams will be
using the break to do a-little bit of
homework.
The Tigers host Fort White and
four other teams today and
tomorrow at the CYSA fields in
Lake City for a round robin
tournament, where both teams will
get a chance to work out some
kinks and see how the squad will
fare down the final stretch of the
season.
For Columbia, the games will
provide an opportunity to see how
the lineup responds to some
injuries.
Starting sweeper J. Ben Parker is
out with a shoulder injury and
striker Alan Watson likely has an
MCL sprain, CHS coach Trevor
Tyler said.
But players like Jorge Carrillo
have stepped in to pick up where
Watson left off, and Geoff
Beardsley is more than competent
at starting sweeper, the coach said.
"These guys have played before
and they know what to do," Tyler
said. "They're doing a great job and
we can still play well."
The Tigers (9-3-1 overall) open
the tournament with a 10:30 a.m.

game against Middleburg High.
The two teams share a bracket with
Panama City Arnold High.
Fort White will take the field at
noon to face St. Francis Catholic
High, and those two teams share a
bracket with Suwannee High.
The Indians enter the tourna-
ment missing starters Mac Collins,
Darren Faulkner and Brandon
Brooks for the week, and also will
look to the bench for some relief.
"The starters we're missing,


they'll make a difference," Fort
White coach Ashley Griseck said.
"But that's why I kept a big bench
this season. I wanted to have a lot of
players this season."
The Indians (3-8-2 overall) fin-
ished third in the tournament last
season and the. team's only goal is
to improve on its own performance.
And the recent break will only help,
Griseck said.

Longhorns in

control of

Holiday Bowl
Texas scored early, often for
35-20 lead over Arizona State
after three quarters Thursday.
From staff reports

Texas was just a little more than one quarter
away frbfin 'aO-Win saon'on Thursday night
in the Holiday Bowl in-San Diego, where they
led Arizona State 35-20 after three quarters at *
presstime.
The Longhorns opened the scoring on
a two-yard Colt McCoy pass to Derek
Lokey less than two minutes into the first
quarter.
John Chiles boosted the Texas lead on a
four-yard run at 7:08 in the first, and Jamaal
Charles broke for a 15-yard score to give the
Longhorns a 21-Iead with 1:30 remaining in
the opening period.
- Arizona State's Chris McGaha registered
the Sun Devils' first points of the game with a
seven-yard touchdown reception from
quarterback Rudy Carpenter at 12:36 in the
second quarter.
McCoy scored on a nine-yard run with just
under five minutes in the half, and the
Sun Devils answered with a 32-yard field goal
by Thomas Weber with :39 left before the
break.
Weber scored again, this time from 46 yards
out, early in the third quarter.
McCoy fumbled at the Sun Devils' 3 later in
the quarter and Nate Jones recovered the ball
for a Longhorns touchdown.
Arizona State moved downfield and Michael
Jones brought in a 22-yard pass from
Carpenter at 2:49 to give the Sun Devils hope
for a comeback in the final quarter.


Tigerettes head


to Cotton Bowl


CHS dancers will
perform at game,
in parade in Dallas.
By CHRIS WHITE
cwhite@lakecityreporter.comrn
The Columbia High
Tigerettes dance team hits the
road today for one of the only
events bigger than a CHS
football game a college
bowl game.
The Tigerettes' combined
varsity and junior varsity
squads were selected to
perform at the Cotton Bowl
in Dallas, Texas, on New
Year's Day and the team will
even have the opportunity to
do its routine in the bowl
parade, which winds its way
through the city.
'"The girls are all very
exited about being able to do
this," Tigerettes coach Wendy


Stevens said. "Some of these
girls have never been out of
Lake City or Florida, and
getting to go to a bowl game is
a big deal."
And like the teams
competing in the game,
Missouri and Arkansas, the
Tigerettes put in the
necessary work to earn their
spot in one of college foot-
ball's biggest shows.
The dance team visited a
National Dance Association-
sponsored camp over the
summer, which was put on by
the company that organizes
the pregame and halftime
shows for the Cotton Bowl.
There, the Tigerettes had to
earn excellent or superior
scores to warrant a second
look, and after doing so, they
played the waiting game.
"We did our routine and got

fared no better at the
Playground Area Shootout
tournament in Fort Walton
Beach, CHS coach Trey
Hosford said.
"We had a lot of open shots,
we just weren't making them.
We just played extremely
weak," he said. "(Pensacola)
only shot once from the
free throw line, so our
defense wasn't even getting
close enough to foul them."
The loss to the No. 9 team
in Class 4A dropped the


Tigers to 6-6 overall and 1-1 in
the tournament, where they
dropped into the losers
bracket.
Columbia will play the
winner of Thursday night's
Christian Life (Louisiana) vs.
Dickson County (Tennessee)
game today, and a loss would
mean an early trip home,
Hosford said.
"Both teams are good," he
said. "If we don't play well
again, we will be home by the
time people are opening.
up their papers the next
morning."


Lady Tigers basketball

The Columbia High girls
varsity basketball team fell to
Spanish Fort High 50-49 after
two overtimes on Wednesday
at a Christmas tournament in
Fort Walton Beach.
The Tigers struggled to


score and regulation ended in
a 35-35 tie. A 40-40 finish to
the first extra period forced a
second, where Spanish Fort
(Alabama) capitalized on a
few key free throws to seal
the win.
"The girls played extreme-
ly hard," CHS coach Horace
Jefferson said. "Now they just
have to learn to play smart
when they're not shooting
well."
The Tigers will get a chance
at improving today at 4 p.m.
CTS when they play
Poplarville High (Miss.).
Against Spanish Fort,
Sharmayne Edwards led the
Tigers with 19 points; Yasmen
Harrington scored nine;
Tasheona Harris scored eight;
Kaylyn Varnum scored five;
Liz Coker scored four; and
Deandrea Edwards and
Shaniqua Henry each scored
two.

TOURNEY: Indians look to snap streak


Continued From Page 1B

"Going in, we've had a week
off, and it was a well-needed
break," she said. "Everyone
seems excited to get started
again. We're going to try to get
third or better again this year."
The tournament also
offers Fort White a chance to


1;


get back into the swing of
winning. The Indians are on a
seven-game losing streak and
have not won since late
November.
But the Indians are mostly
healthy and prepared to turn
one- and two-goal losses into


wins, Griseck said.
"The last few losses we
only lost 1-0 or by a goal," she
said. "We're playing really
well and playing great
possession soccer, we're just
not finishing. Hopefully we
can start to do that."


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Members of the junior varsity Tigerettes for 2007-08 are (front row, from left) Katie Faris, co-captain
Kaila Wolff, Gaptain Casey Stevens, co-captain Kirstin Charney and Jillian Roberson. Second row
(from left) are Lt. Breanna Black, Lt. Caitlin Darby, Lt. Julie Geisler and Megan Proveaux. Back row
(from left) are Rachquel Harper, Karissa Varnum, Ashley Davis, Jordan Williams, Tiffany Wilson and
Ashley Huddleston. Jessica Stalnaker is coach.


TIGERETTES: Will join 1,000 students


Continued From Page 1B

the scores, but they didn't
send us an invitation right
away," Stevens said. "We had
to go online and look for it,
and after we filled out
the application, we finally
got it."
Stevens received a DVD
with the dance routine
instructions in the mail
mid-November and the team
has been perfecting it since.
The 31-girl team will now


perform in the bowl parade on
Dec. 31 before joining more
than 1,000 other students in
the pregame routine and
halftime festivities on Jan. 1.
The Tigerettes will return to
Lake City on Jan. 2.
After the team found it was
accepted, however, the
most difficult part of the
preparations began. Each girl
was required to raise $650 to
pay for the trip, and the team


financed a large portion of it
through yard sales, bead
sales, wreath sales and dance
clinics. The rest, Stevens
said, was taken in through
generous local sponsors.
"I think (the community)
seemed to want to help us
out," Stevens said. "... We had
it broken down, and some
people helped sponsor a meal
and some people helped pay
for other parts of the trip."

-- ---: Son's embrace of family does

S-""- not include family's antiques


- DEAR ABBY: We have a
4 large collection of 18th- and
S 19th-century antiques, mostly
-- - inherited. It consists of furni-
* * ture, silver, china, Oriental rugs
e and artwork. Our son professes
an interest when asked, but
D ** recently threw out a very good
I- db (but not antique) rug we had
- given him. He replaced it with a
- rug from IKEA.
S*- *- His wife is a sweet woman,
but does not care at all about
S possessions. Their house is
chaos a big. way station.
S Because these possessions are
* -- family items going back genera-
*- -- tions, I'm floored by his not
*< understanding the significance
* and the good fortune of having
.- - them. How should I approach
- * * this? - ROBERT IN
a ATIANTA
-* DEAR ROBERT: Talk to
-- your son, but above all, do not
S- be defensive. His and your
*, daughter-in-law's inability to
*- appreciate the value of the heir-
f looms isn't a personal rejection.
P* Forgive me if this seems blas-
* * phemous, but some people con-
U h *o sider antiques to be simply used
- furniture. And they don't want
the responsibility of polishing
silver or having to worry about
breaking a dish.
Because your son's lifestyle is
so different from your own,
* please give serious considera-
B tion to donating your heirlooms
- to a museum or selling them to
-- someone who will appreciate
their value. The proceeds could
be placed in trust for the next


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorabby.com
generation of your family, and
you will have peace of mind
knowing your heirlooms will be
preserved.
DEAR ABBY: I'm the only
African-American at my job. I
work in a small office. I enjoy
my job and get along with
everyone including the indi-
vidual I have issues with. Ill call
him "Rick." Rick thinks ifts com-
ical to always talk to me with
what I'll refer to as "homeboy
slang."t
When another co-worker
asked about my plans for the
holidays, Rick chimed in and
said, "all know she ain't 'bout to
tell y'all her business." Abby, I
don't talk like that, and I was
offended by his statement
Some co-workers laughed while
others said they agreed he was
being rude.
I usually ignore him, but I
can't do that any longer. I deal
with ignorance all the time, but
it's embarrassing at my work-
place. How can I put Rick in his
place without blowing my top?
- HAD IT IN NORTH
BERGEN, NJ.
DEAR HAD IT: The ideal


time to have spoken up was the
first time your co-worker pulled
that nonsense. Take Rick aside
and tell him privately that he
embarrassed you and that the
connotation is racist. If the man
has any manners or common
sense at all, he will apologize.
But whether he does or not,
make clear that the next time it
happens you'll complain to the
boss. His behavior is over the
line and not funny.
DEAR ABBY: Something
has bothered me for a long
time, and I'm wondering if it's
just me.
My women friends and I will
walk into a restaurant and the
waiter or waitress will come up
and say, "What can I do for you
guys?" or, "What would you
guys like?" Then, after we've
started eating, the person will
return and ask, "How are you
guys doing?"
Abby, I'm not a guy. I'm a lady.
Why can't these people simply
ask, "How are you today?" What
do you think? Am I too sensi-
tive? DISGRUNTLED IN
LOMPOC, CALIF.
DEAR DISGRUNTLED:
You are being addressed that
way because the server was not
taught differently. Also, your
server may be quite young and
using the most casual form of
English. Are you too sensitive?
If you're letting it ruin your
meal, yes, I think so.
E Write Dear Abby at
www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box
