Teacher pact nears approval


Union chief upset at delay in
board OK; members weren't
kept in the loop, says Hunter.

By LAURA HAMPSON
Ihampson@lakecityreporter. corn
School board members hope to approve
a final contract for teachers next week
at their regular meeting. For Kevin
Doyle, president of Columbia Teachers
Association, that can't come soon enough.


The new contract had
been on the consent agen-
da at the Nov. 22 board
meeting. However, four
of five board members
wanted more time to look
it over before giving their _
final OK, and approval of Hunter
the pact, which includes
a 2 percent raise, was
delayed. .
"It's like being stood up at the altar,
basically," said Doyle. "We are in limbo
right now."


According to one school
board member, however, the
^. board hadn't been kept fully
informed of negotiations.
Glenn Hunter, who's served
on the board since 1988, said
he received a copy of the con-
Millikin tract just before the Nov. 22
meeting and wasn't prepared
to vote. Some board members
were given the contract the day before the
meeting while others saw it for the first time
that night. The school board attorney had not
yet reviewed the contract, he said.


In the past the school board has met in
executive session a number of times dur-
ing negotiations to discuss progress on that
year's contract. A Nov. 28 meeting was the
first such session this year, Hunter said.
Board members had been informed of
progress on an individual basis, but that
wasn't effective, according to Hunter.
"Had the superintendent done this in
the manner we did in the past it would
have been resolved by now," he said.
Superintendent Mike Millikin said nego-

Bonus


checks


for city


workers


as well

By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter. com

Ifts not nearly as big as the
$2,000 bonus to county employees
announced last month, but Lake
City municipal employees will
receive a "token of appreciation"
in an upcoming paycheck. '
All city employees with more
than a year of employment will
receive a $100 bonus. Part time
workers and those with less than
a year of employment will be given
a $50 bonus.
The bonus was on the meeting's
consent agenda and was approved
at Monday's meeting without dis-
cussion.
City Manager Wendell Johnson
said the 238 employees will receive
the bonus on their next paycheck.
The bonuses will cost the city
about $19,000, Johnson said.
The city got some good news at
the meeting when Tom Conley, an
account representative for Florida
League of Cities, presented the city
with a check for $16,998 in property
insurance premiums. The check
was given because the city filed
no major claims with the non-profit
insurance provider, Conley said.
Council members also listened
to a presentation about the dangers
of flavored tobacco from Columbia
High School's chapter of Students
Working Against Tobacco. After
the presentation, council members
agreed to consider a resolution at
the next meeting supporting the
anti-tobacco drive.

Diamond, Streep get Kennedy Center Honors


WASHINGTON
Meryl Streep received
her next film assign-
ment over the
weekend from a
friend to play the
role of Hillary Rodham Clinton in a
future film as Streep and four oth-
ers were saluted with the Kennedy
Center Honors.
The jesting offer came when
writer Nora Ephron said Streep's
talent, versatility and resemblance
to Clinton made it "inevitable" that
she would one day play the secre-
tary of state and former first lady.
Clinton, who flew home for 36 hours
to celebrate the honorees over the
weekend, just laughed, while Streep
jokingly stood up for a better look at
the nation's top diplomat.
Along with Streep, pop singer Neil
Diamond, Broadway singer Barbara
Cook famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and
jazk saxophonist Sonny Rollins
joined in receiving the nation's top
award Sunday night for those who
have influeficed American culture
through the arts.
Caroline Kennedy, who hosts
the show as part of a living memo-
rial to her father, John E Kennedy,
acknowledged her personal connec-
tion to one honoree.
In a nod to Diamond, she said
he was "a Brooklyn lad with a gift
of melody who grew into a solitary
' man, 'reaching out, touching me."'
That was enough to draw big laughs
as the crowd of celebrities and politi-
cians recalled that Diamond's "Sweet
SCaroline" was named for her.

FAMU student leaders call for end to hazing


By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida A&M President
James Ammons said"
Monday the university is
committed to breaking a
conspiracy of silence that
has for decades shrouded
hazing practices at the
school and finally resulted
in a band member's death.
Ammons addressed an
estimated 2,000 FAMU stu-
dents Monday night and
then took several ques-
tions, many of which were
about the media coverage,
that most in the audience
felt portrayed the school in
a bad light.
"We are going to elimi-


nate this pattern of destruc-
tive behavior from our cam-
pus," Ammons said. "This


code of silence haml)ipers
our ability to root otl the se
insidious activities."

Woman misspelled name


on forged check, say police


By TONY BRITT
tbfitt@lakecityreporter.com
Local woman was arrest-
ed after a short Columbia
County Sheriff's Office
investigation determined
she forged a check for more
than $350 that belonged to
a local restaurant owner,
police
reports
said.
Natosha
Kelley,
32, 391
NW Irma
Kelley Ave., was
charged with larceny,*
counterfeiting of a public
record, uttering, a false
instrument and violation
of probation on an origi-
nal charge of giving a false
report to a law enforce-
ment officer. She was
,,booked into the Coluteibia
County Detention Facility-
on $20,000 bond.
According to sheriff's
reports, on Saturday morn-
ing the owner of the Blue
Roof Grill met with a dep-
uty about a potential case
of fraud.
The restaurant owner
explained that he recently
discovered someone had
stolen a check from his
business and'cashed it The
restaurant owner said all
employees have access to
the manager's office where
the checks are kept.

tiations went quickly this
time around.
"We felt we could get the
information out to individual
members but they still had
questions," Millikin said.
However, board mem-
bers could have called for
an executive session at any
time, he said.
Doyle said he had
hoped the contract would
be approved at the Nov.
22 meeting. Some district
employees were counting
on the retroactive pay from
the contract for Christmas
shopping, he said.
"It's disappointing," Doyle
said.
Millikin said the district
must close out the payroll
cycle for 2011 and create
district W-2 forms before
working on the retroac-
tive pay. If the contract is
signed, teachers won't like-
ly see any retroactive pay
until January, he said.
According to Hunter,
however, the process moved
at normal speed.
"This timeline is not
unusual," he said.
In any case, Hunter said
he's glad teachers are get-
ting a raise.
'"They are the public
school system," he said.
The board plans to meet
in executive session again
this week to finalize a few
small items, then will likely
approve the contract at its
Dec. 13 meeting.
The pact will then go to
teachers for approval.


The restaurant's man-
ager told the deputy that
between Nov. 21 Nov. 28, a
sheet of checks was stolen
from the manager's office
and as she was reviewing
the store's bank statement,
she realized that someone
had forged her signature
on a check. She said her
name was even spelled
wrong on the check.

The check was cashed
for $352 in the name of
Natosha Kelley, reports
said.
The owner and manag-
er canceled the checking-
account and provided the
deputy with witness state-
ments.
The deputy found Kelley
at a friend's house. Kelley
reportedly toldo the deputy


that one day she was at the
Blue Roof Grill picking up
food and noticed a blank
check on the ground next
to a gray car. Kelley report-
edly told the deputy that
she took the blank check
and forged a signature on
it and cashed it. She was
arrested and taken to the
jail without incident.

ONE '
OPINION


Obama

looking at

rare win

on taxes

n the curious way
Washington works, con-
gressional Republicans
never felt that the Bush
tax cuts, the origin of our
current tide of red ink, needed
to be offset by raising taxes or
cutting spending elsewhere in
the budget.
Neither did the Republicans
or the Bush administration
believe that the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan needed to be
paid for by tax increases. We
paid for those wars the same
way we paid for the tax cuts
- by borrowing the money,
mostly from ourselves.
Now that President Barack
Obama is refashioning himself
as a tax cutter, to some extent,
the Republicans are in a bind.
As a party, they are institution-
ally in favor of tax cuts, but as
the newly refashioned party
of anti-spending, they now feel
obliged to pay for them.
The centerpiece of Obama's
latest jobs program is another
cut in the payroll tax on
employees. This year it was cut
from 6.2 percent to 3.1 percent,
and Obama proposes dropping
that even further, to 2 percent
A Republican plan to pay for
the tax cut by freezing federal
pay and cutting the federal work
force by 10 percent through
attrition got hammered, 20 to 78,
with 26 Republicans defecting.,
The Senate debate was likely
a preview of the 2012 campaign,
when Democrats will strive might-
ily to paint the Republicans as
defenders of the rich and privi-
leged. The payroll-tax cut is set to
expire at the end of the month. If
it does, Obama said it means the
"Senate Republicans chose to raise
taxes on nearly 160 million hard-
working Americans because they
refused to ask a few hundred thou-
sand millionaires and billionaires
to pay their fair share."
That charge may be getting
a sympathetic reception. A new
New York Times-CBS poll shows
that nearly 7 out of 10 believe
Republicans favor the rich.
Obama, it seems, somehow out-
flanked the Republicans on both
the left and the right on the tax
issue.

Tea Party loses support


The steam has gone
out of the Tea Party
movement, leaving
voters still simmer-
ing with discontent.
According to new findings
by the respected Pew Research
Center, only 20 percent of
Americans say they support the
Tea Party, down from a plurality
a year ago. Even in 60 congres-
sional districts represented by
Tea Partiers, only one out of
four voters backs the Tea Party.
Even worse for the fledgling
movement that took America
by storm last year, half of those
polled don't know enough
about Tea Partiers to have an
opinion. More Americans sup-
port the Occupy Wall Street
movement's warning about the
growth of inequality in America
even though police have largely
squelched the camp-ins..
Tea Partiers' disdain for
government resonated with
Americans suffering from round
after round of bad economic
news. But Tea Partiers' willing-
ness to let the government
default on its debts soured many.
Even so, staunch conserva-
tives have emerged in full
control of the Republican Party,
tying it in knots.
In a time when Republicans
and Democrats can't be in the
same room together without

verbal violence and when com-
promise is a dirty word, Tea
Party lawmakers did nothing
but stoke the incivility and ani-
mosity.
Governing is the art of com-
promise but Tea Party lawmak-
ers don't accept that reality.
They will not permit any closure
of tax loopholes, even if they
affect only the wealthy, because
that's seen as a tax increase.
'Tley seek spending cuts only,
even if that hurts Americans in
great financial difficulty.
One wonders why Tea Partiers
ran for Congress if their only doc-
trine is: My way or the highway.
We love the idea of Mr. Smith
going to Washington to thwart
the majority and stand up for
principles. But that is not how
progress; or law, gets made.
Perhaps the fiscal responsibil-
ity yearnings of Tea Partiers
and the more-equality demands
of the Occupy Wall Street
movement will be merged into


a reasonable middle-ground
philosophy of government that
a majority of voters will accept
Perhaps not But both move-
ments awakened passions we
had forgotten we have.
In the end America will be a
better place because of the Tea
Party and Occupy Wall Street,
even as America is better off
without the irrational excesses
of each.
As the end nears for this annus
horribilis, as Queen Elizabeth
refers to a very bad year, we see
that once again we are going
through a type of bloodless revo-
lution that may well end in a less
profligate, more compassionate,
even fairer nation. It is too soon to
tell. The good news is that we've
strengthened ourselves before
- the end of slavery, the push for
women's rights, the abolition of
sanctioned child labor. We will
do so again because the nature
of our representative democracy
permits it
And because, sometimes
excessively, most of us care and
care deeply about this country.
Now, if we could just talk togeth-
er without shouting and work
together without gridlock....

TO THE EDITOR


Quit dodging debate on evolution


To thke Editor:

The Florida Columbia County
School District has been dodg-
ing a public debate between the
Scientific Theory of Evolution
and the Holy Bible. They are
using our Florida taxes to
thrust their false, blasphemous,
anti-Scriptural teaching upon
Columbia High School and Fort
White High School Biology 1
students, who have to learn this
evolutionary explanation of how
they came into being.
These High School stu-
dents fall under the authority
of Florida Next Generation
Sunshine State Standards
(NGSSS) for Biology 1 stu-
dents.. The NGSSS Benchmark
number SC.912.L.15.8 has
the benchmark description,
"Describe the scientific expla-


nations of the origin of life on
Earth."
When you go. to page 402 in
the Biology Florida Textbook
for these students we read of a
scientific experiment performed
by famous French scientist,
Louis Pasteur. He proved that
life can only come from preex-
isting life.
The Next Generations
Sunshine State Standards
cannot even prove how the
first generation of life came
into being, let alone the next.
Pasteur's experiment proved
"only living organisms can
produce living organisms."
So where do we have an
example in the history of
mankind where life came
from non-life?
The answer is found in John
chapter 11. We read what


Martha said to the Messiah, the
Creator, The Lord Jesus Christ.
He came to Bethany, where
Lazarus had been dead for
four days. It says in John 11:39
(KJV) "Martha, the sister of him
that was dead, saith unto Him,
Lord, by this time he stinketh:
for he hath been dead four
days."
But The Messiah raised
Lazarus from the dead even
after he stinketh. I challenge
the Florida Columbia County
School District and all its teach-
ers to a public debate in Lake
City, Florida. They all have
been debate dodging for much
more than four days and it stin-
keth.

To the Editor:

One in FOUR children in
Columbia County live in pov-
erty? Well, that just takes the
cake, as they say!! The first
thing that came to my mind
are the churches. Yes, the
churches!!
They fly OVER mission fields
in their own back yards to get
to mission fields in another
country. There is no excuse
for children living in poverty in
the United States of America; at


least, not in my mind.
But, you know what, Lake
City? We can't take care of
the whole world, right? It just
looks like we COULD open
our hearts and our resources
to take care of the children
in our own back yard, so to
speak.
CHILDREN are going to
school who have NO home!!!
Where do they "live?" The peo-
ple of Lake City need to know
so that we can do something
MORE than we are doing


right now to help. Please do
a front page story about this
and open our eyes so that we
can see!!! If we only save ONE
town our town that would
really be a miracle!!! I vol-
unteer to do what I can. Who
will join me ? It's not all about
the money, people. These
things are FRAGILE!! These
things are matters of the
HEART!!!

ANOTHER
VIEW


'Police,

jailer'

officers in the U.S. 7
military should
never have the .
authority to patrol
the nation's streets
and lock up people they sus-
pect of being terrorists, at will,
for life.
President Barack Obama
should keep his promise to d
veto the defense bill now k .
before Congress if it includes
the frightening amendment A
allowing the military to impris- ni
on American citizens indefi-
nitely without trial indeed, T
without even letting them talk -
to a lawyer. It is an insult to ?3
our nation's values the kind :
of thing we protest when it .
happens in China and other ,
dictatorships. ;
California Sen. Dianne o
Feinstein is courageously i
leading the opposition to the 3
amendment As hair of the
powerful Senate Intelligence
Committee, she has strong
national security credentials.
But this, she recognizes, is
an affront to Americans' basic L
respect for due process.
Feinstein compares it to leg- '
isolation that permitted the gov-
ernment to lock up Japanese-
Americans in internment camps
during World War I a point
made in'a column on this page -
Monday by Floyd Mori of the
Japanese American Citizens
League. U.S. leaders must never ,"
forget that racially charged'
injustice that also was made in
the name of national security.
"We are not a nation that
locks up its citizens without '
charge, prosecution and con-
viction," Feinstein said.
Democratic Sen. Carl
Levin, who chairs the Armed f
Services Committee, and .
Republican Sen. John McCain
are leading the charge to
repeat history.
Levin asks, if somebody
believed to be "a member of
an enemy force who has come
to this nation or in this nation
to attack us as a member of a
foreign enemy, should that per- ,
son be treated according to the j,
laws of war?"
He assumes military officers ,
always will fairly assess indi-
viduals' intent, will be immune .
to racism and will never over- ,
reach with this broad authority
to lock people away without
having to prove anything.
Certainly no community would
want local police to have this
ability, no matter how profes-
sional the force. /
Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo.,
tried to inject some sense into
the debate. He proposed strik-
ing the detention provision from
this defense bill and writing a
separate detention bill.
Nor has Congress heeded
Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta, a former CIA direc-
tor, White House Chief of Staff
and member of Congress. The
highly respected Panetta says
the current bill could "need- !
lessly complicate efforts by
front-line law enforcement
professionals to collect critical '
intelligence concerning opera-
tions and activities within the ,
United States." Taking sus-
pects into military custody
could hinder the FBI from
using its counterterrorism
tools, he argues.
Levin and McCain haven't
made a compelling case that
detaining suspected terror-
ists indefinitely is essential
to national security, let alone
worth the violence it would do
to cherished civil rights that
set us apart from totalitarian
states. Obama, with his veto,
can renew our commitment
to preserving individual free-
doms.

comparing and contrasting
in stories and the sequenc-

Fort White's Wrench signs softball scholarship to Thomas


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. corn
FORT WHITE
Fort White High's
Alison Wrench
signed a softball
scholarship
to Thomas
University during a
ceremony in the school's
communications center on
Monday.
Athletic Director John
Wson served as master of
ceremonies.
Wrench's decision to
attend the Thomasville,
Ga., school completes a
pipeline of sorts.
Fort White head coach
Cassie Sparks played for
the Night Hawks, and in
her last two years was


coached by Thomas head
coach Bill Wilson.
"My heart and soul is
with Thomas; there are so
many memories," Sparks
said. "All is a coach's
dream. She is a huge
leader for the team. You
don't have to tell her to
keep pushing. She always
give you 100 percent"
Sparks suggested Coach
Wilson give Wrench a look
and he was soon sold.
"I watched a-game last
year and saw her play in a
few exposure
tournaments," Coach
Wilson said. "She is a great
girl and a good student.
She works extremely hard
and plays multiple
positions. I think she can
play well for us."


A three-sport athlete,
Wrench played volleyball
and is in the middle of
soccer season. Coaches
Doug Wohlstein and Perry
Sauls, respectively,
attended the signing.
Principal Keith Hatcher
spoke of Wrench's resolve.
"Anybody who forgets
that dynamite comes in
small packages needs to
come and watch Ali in
anything," Hatcher said.
"She demonstrates
leadership and
commitment to team, not
by what she says but by
what she does."
John Wilson coached
Wrench in one of her six
-varsity softball seasons.
"Great things happen to
great people," the


athletic director said.
"After a while you realize
it is not the coaching you
are after, but the kids you
are there for. We are super,
super proud and thank you
for everything you have
down for us."
As a shortstop and
outfielder, Wrench hit .397
for the Lady Indians last
year and scored 14 runs.
"Since I was little, I have
dreamed about playing
softball," Wrench said. "I
am excited to go to college
and play the game I love."
Wrench following Sparks
to Thomas is a plus for
both programs.
"I am very proud and
very excited," Sparks
said. "Thomas is getting a
phenomenal athlete. I am


going to do everything I
can to prepare her for the
next level."
Wrench had kind words
for teammates, coaches
and administrators, and
included all in the photo
session.
Her special thanks
were for family parents
Sandra and Gary Williams
and grandparents Nancy
and John Palmer.
"I want to thank my
parents for everything they
have done for me," Wrench
said. 'Thanks to my
grandparents for always
being there since I was
born. I am going to miss
you very much."
Fort White will miss
Wrench, but two sports
seasons remain to enjoy.


Rematch of


the centu r


Alabama squeaks
by Oklahoma St.
in final standings.
By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press
If you like sequels, the
BCS has a championship
game for you: Alabama-
LSU II.
The Crimson Tide edged
Oklahoma State in the final
round of voting Sunday and
will play the top-ranked
Tigers in the BCS national
championship game on
Jan. 9 in New Orleans.
Undefeated LSU is the
only team to beat Alabama
this season, and the head


BCS official sees a rematch
as a perfectly good title
game.
"Absolutely, if they're 1
and 2, and they are in all
the polls released today,"
executive director Bill
Hancock said.
Still, it's not exactly a
game the public was clam-
oring for at least outside
of Southeastern Conference
territory. And it will do
nothing to quiet critics of
the Bowl Championship
Series or calls for a college
football playoff.
Like it or not, the system
has ensured that the SEC
- home to both schools
- will run its streak of
BCS championships to six

Alabama has one of
those and will be making
its second BCS title game
appearance in the last three
seasons. The Crimson Tide


claims 13 national cham-
pionships overall and is
one of the most decorated
programs in the land. It's
won seven AP titles since
the wire service started its


poll in 1936.

A win for Tiger


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tiger Woods reacts after a birdie putt to win
the Chevron World Challenge golf
tournament at Sherwood Country Club on
Sunday in Thousand Oaks, Calif.


Associated Press


THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Two years
after his life, and career came crashing
down, Tiger Woods is a winner again.
One shot behind with two holes to play,
Woods finally looked like the player who
dominated golf for so much of his career.
He birdied his last two holes Sunday,
making a 6-foot putt on the 18th, to win
the Chevron World Challenge by one
shot over former Masters champion Zach
Johnson.
Woods closed with a 3-under 69, sweep-
ing his arm when the final putt dropped,
then slamming down his first in celebra-
tion. It had been 749 days and 26 official
tournaments since he last won on Nov. 15,
2009 at the Australian Masters, back when
he looked as though he would rule golf as
long as he played.
But he crashed his car into a fire hydrant
outside his Florida home on Thanksgiving
night, and shocking revelations of extra-
marital affairs began to emerge, which
eventually led to a divorce. Since then, he
has changed swing coaches and endured
more injuries.
Now, however, it looks clear that Woods
is on an upward path.


Heisman finalists set


By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press

NEW YORK Andrew
Luck, Robert Griffin III,
Trent Richardson, Tyrann
Mathieu and Montee Ball
are the finalists for the
Heisman Trophy.
Luck, the Stanford quar-
terback and preseason
favorite, is a finalist for the
second straight season.


Griffin is the first Baylor
player to be picked as a
finalist. The school has
never had a player finish
better than fourth in the
Heisman voting.
Richardson is the
second Alabama running
back to be a finalist in the
last three years.
Former teammate Mark
Ingram won the Heisman
in 2009.


Ball has scored 38
touchdowns for Wisconsin
and needs one more to
match Barry Sanders'
NCAA record.
Mathieu, the LSU defen-
sive back nicknamed Honey
Badger, has made numer-
ous game-changing plays
for the top-ranked Tigers.
The Heisman Trophy
will be presented Saturday
night

Meyer past and future


in Gator Bowl matchup


By MARK LONG
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE -
Urban Meyer's former and
future teams will play in
the Gator Bowl.
Florida (6-6) and Ohio
State (6-6) were chosen to
meet in the Jan. 2 game
in Jacksonville, a mar-
quee matchup between
once-proud programs that
slipped significantly this
season. The teams last
played'in the 2006 national
championship game, which
Florida won 41-14.
Meyer's hiring earlier
in the week in Columbus
makes the rematch even
more intriguing.
But both sides insist it
won't be a distraction, even
though Meyer already has
lured highly regarded
strength coach Mickey
Marotti away from Florida.

"I don't know that it could

But for our coaches and
our players, I don't know
that they'll know much of a

Meyer won two national
titles in six years with the
Gators. He left Gainesville
after last season, citing
health concerns and a
desire to spend more time
with his family, and became
a college football analyst
for ESPN. He walked away
from the network last
weekend and was officially
introduced Monday.

lower-division Furman last
month.
"Based on what I know,
Urban won't coach the

Explanation Key
The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls.
Team percentages are derived by dividing a team's actual voting points by a maximum 2875 possible points in the Harris Interactive
Poll and 1475 possible points in the USAToday Coaches Poll. I
Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component.The highest and lowest ranking for each team is
dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage.The six computer ranking pro-
viders are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking
accounts for schedule strength in its formula.

DEAR ABBY


Airlines are thinking small

as Americans are getting big


DEAR ABBY: This let-
ter is to offer sympathy
to "Trish in Louisiana"
(Sept. 25), who was seat-
ed next to two large pas-
sengers on a three-hour
flight. It has happened to
me.
The airlines control the
size and weight of bag-
gage, whether it's checked
or carry-on, and charge
when it's overweight So
why do they turn a blind
eye when it comes to pas-
sengers who must endure
being crowded out of the
seats we have paid for? If
airlines aren't willing to
screen passengers for size,
perhaps they should pro-
vide a few rows of larger
seats to accommodate
them.
Airlines have sacrificed
comfort for economy to
the point that the seats are
simply too small. I'm an
average-size woman, but
I find the seats are barely
large enough. They're
crowded so close together
you can't move your
legs, and they don't actu-
ally recline. I agree with
your advice to speak up
if you find yourself being
squeezed. ELLEN IN
LAS CRUCES
DEAR ELLEN: While
your letter reflects the
views of many readers,
they ALL emphatically
agree that airlines need to
do a better job of customer
service regarding the seat-

ing on passenger planes.
My newspaper readers
comment:
DEAR ABBY: As
America grows larger,
airline seats grow smaller.
Trish was right to be com-
passionate. If airlines treat
large people (who are also
paying customers) like dirt
so they can turn a profit by
squeezing passengers into
every inch of space, they
are WRONG.
There are ways to be
creative and not humiliate
anyone. The flight atten-
dant could have moved a
child to her seat with Mom
across the aisle. '
I recommend that flight
attendants think along
those lines, because hav-
ing a gate attendant drag
people off flights is not the
best way to handle this
and should only be a last
resort We're all custom-
ers, and we all deserve
to be treated with dignity.
- MARY IN VIRGINIA
BEACH, VA-
DEAR ABBY: The fault
lies with airline manage-
ment. They should specify
up front in their ad cam-


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Use your personal'
experience to get ahead
professionally. Set up meet-
ings and play an aggres-
sive role in getting what
you want, when you want
it. Your spirit will raise
greater interest in what
you have to offer. Show
your skills proudly. ***
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Let your feelings be
known. Don't be shy or too
stubborn to admit what's
on your mind and what
you intend to do. Meetings
will bring good results and
allow you to find out who
wants to get involved in
your plans. ***
. GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You must deal with
red tape, institutional mat-
ters or government agen-
cies quickly. Someone will
not be happy with a deci-
sion you make regarding a
partnership. Don't be too
hasty to make a deal or
you will give up too much
for too little. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Getting involved in a
worthy cause will lead to
all sorts of perks. Not only
will you meet someone
stellar, but you will also
discover potential partner-
ships that can help you get
ahead financially. Love is
highlighted. ****
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Have fun in the company
of those who share your


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

interests. Shopping will be
exhausting and could be
expensive. Budget wisely
and keep your expendi- '.
tures to a minimum. You
don't have to i-?press any-'
one. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): You need to get
out and experience new
people, places and things.
A heartfelt matter can be
addressed. Plans to get
involved in something
you believe in-will lead to
greater knowledge and
the opportunity to expand
your interests. *****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Put more focus on
your personal finances,
finding ways to lower
your taxes and improve
your home. Letting others
determine what you can do
will be your downfall. Do
research and make deci-
sions that will benefit you,
not others. ***
SCORPIO (Oct 23-
Nov. 21): Live, love and
laugh, but most of all,
get involved in things
that make you happy.
Passionate times will bring
back fond memories and
open up future opportu-
nities. Set the wheels in
motion now for what you
would like to see happen.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Take any pre-
cautions necessary when it
comes to travel or experi-
menting with activities
that involve an element of
danger. You don't have to
show off. Everyone will
love you for your wit, intel-
ligence and playful person-
ality. *****
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Take precautions
when dealing with people
you have an emotional
connection to. Don't make
promises that will be too
difficult to keep or offer to
pay for something you can-
not afford. Call the shots
instead of taking orders.
**
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Don't let financial
uncertainty get you down.
Seek extra work or find
a way to offer your ser-
vices in different circles.
Diversity will keep you
ahead and ease stress.
Setting a new budget will
help stretch your income.
**
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Rely on the past to
help you make the right
choices now. Someone
may confuse you, but if
you talk to a trusted friend
who knows your situation,
you will find a way to move
forward. Love is on the
rise. ****

COMFORTABLE ON THE
GROUND
DEAR ABBY: My heart
goes out to all three. I am
a plus-size woman and
my husband is "normal"
size. His field is market-
ing, and I showed him
your letter. He said recent
surveys have shown
that one-third of people
who refuse to fly do so
because of the tight seat-
ing, and not fear of an
accident. Airlines pack
people in like sardines to
make more money, and it
is resented.
I quit flying years ago
because of claustrophobia.
If I had to fly now, I'd buy
a first-class ticket I won-
der why the planes don't
have six or eight seats
in the back of coach that
are larger and cost more
money, but less than first
class.
Something has to be
done to make flying safer
and more comfortable
for everyone. Surely
we have the intellectual
capacity to solve these .
problems. NO LONGER
