Morrells sufferspossible smoke damagebut is otherwise OK.By TONY BRITT andLAURA HAMPSONtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA morning fire swept through a 9,000 square foot building near Morrells Home Furnishings on Wednesday, destroying a flea market. The fire at Cliffords Flea Market, 835 SW Deputy Jeff Davis Drive, left only blackened and scorched tin, charred metal pieces and melted globs of indistinguishable plastic. The building was owned by Morrells Home Furnishings and leased to Clifford Blackmon. Thick smoke from the fire engulfed the entrance to Morrells, but the furni-ture building did not catch fire, despite rumors that circulated Wednesday. The flea market warehouse was the original home of Morrells Home Furnishings. No one was injured in the blaze. Blackmon, who operated the flea market, was devas-tated by the loss. Ive lost everything I own, he said as firefight-ers continued their work. The building and its con-tents were uninsured, he said. John Norman, another vendor at the flea market, was inside when the fire began. I got a big dose of smoke but got out in time, he said at the scene. His destroyed goods -including antique video games and electronics -were irreplaceable, he said. I had original Ataris in boxes, he said. Things you couldnt buy at Walmart. Paul Mabile, one of the owners of Morrells Home Furnishings, said he was uncertain if any of their products suffered smoke damage. The store was closed when the fire occurred. Inside the furniture building there was some smoke but we have one of the local restoration com-panies in there now and they are going to hook-up some equipment to try to clean the air, he said. Hopefully there is noth-ing. The smell of smoke is not real strong in there so we should be OK. When I was driving up I saw a big, black cloud of smoke and I figured it was pretty bad because it was a pretty big cloud, Mabile said. About half of the building was on fire when I arrived and within in five minutes the whole thing was on fire and the flames were shooting out the end of the breezeway touch-ing the home furnishings building. Mabile said the flea market building was a wooden structure constructed in the late 1960s. The Columbia County Fire Department received a call about the fire at 8:32 a.m. David Boozer, Columbia County Interim Fire Chief, said the cause of the fire is under investigation and noted two state fire marshals were on the scene as well as a repre-sentative from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. When the initial crews came in they made an inte-rior survey and all the fire was up is the attic, so they backed out, Boozer said. He said attic fires are the most dangerous kind here because there is no barrier and the fire just runs. We went to try to make an offensive attack but it wasnt possible, because we had a really significant wind event that kicked in, he said. It took anywhere from an hour and 30 minutes to two hours to control the fire, Boozer said. It was a challenge just because of the wind. Boozer said preliminary indications are that the fire started on the rear south-west corner of the build-ing. Strong winds blowing to the northeast drove the fire through the building. It began heating things up as it progressed and it was just like a chain reac-tion, he said. We went to a defensive mode and in doing so we set up protective lines to protect the building, he said. In addition to the challenges from the wind, Boozer said at one point there was an issue with water supply. There was a delay in some water, he said. I really dont know all the details, but we experienced somewhat of a delay in getting some water, but we adjusted and did what we had to do.

Dick Clark dies at 82By LYNN ELBERAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Dick Clark, the ever-youth-ful television host and tireless entrepreneur who helped bring rock n roll into the mainstream on American Bandstand, and later produced and hosted a vast range of programming from game shows to the year-end countdown from Times Square on New Years Rockin Eve, has died. He was 82. Spokesman Paul Shefrin said Clark had a heart attack Wednesday morn ing at Saint Johns hospital in Santa Monica, where he had gone the day before for an outpatient procedure.

Townsend offers to resignas White Springs managerBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comWHITE SPRINGS Robert Townsend, the town manager and public works director, has submitted his resignation, but officials have postponed their deci-sion to accept the resigna-tion until questions about Townsends pension can be answered. Townsend, who has been on paid administra tive leave for more than three weeks, tendered his resignation to town offi cials with Wednesday as the effective date. We had a motion to accept the resignation which was seconded, but when discussion was called there was a question from a resident about an issue relating to Townsends pen-sion, which we were not able to answer, said Helen Miller, White Springs mayor. With town officials unable to fully answer the question about Townsends pension, they unanimously voted to table the decision until a later meeting. We will revisit this Thursday, April 26, when we have an organizational meeting, Miller said. During the organiza tional meeting next week the first order of business will be to elect a mayor and vice mayor then town officials will revisit the resignation and questions about Townsends pension. The town council is then expected to vote. Wednesday nights meeting was specifically called to discuss Townsends employment with the Town of White Springs. Townsend has been the White Springs town man-ager for close to 13 years. Townsend was placed on paid administrative leave after town officials learned he was under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Miller said town officials have not received any addi-tional information from FDLE regarding its invesMANAGER continued on 3A

AROUND FLORIDA Blair cautions against Mideast disengagementWEST PALM BEACH Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair cautioned Wednesday against disengagement in the Middle East, saying such a move would be a mistake that threatens the security of the West. Speaking at a leadership conference at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Blair said he now recognizes even more than when he was in office the threat of radical Islam and the importance of remaining involved in the Mideast. If we disengage from whats happening in the Middle East right now, he said, we will make a mistake. Blair suggested he would have been even more deeply involved in Middle East issues if he could relive his term, and he would be even more radical in his domestic reforms. The British leader spoke to several hundred people crowded into an octagon-shaped chapel at the Christian college. Despite worldwide turmoil, Blair said he remains profoundly optimistic and believes globalization will be positive for people around the world. I can truly say the one disease I never caught at Downing Street was cynicism, he said.Democratic Senate leader will run for governorTALLAHASSEE Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich is getting an early start in the 2014 election, saying she plans to run for governor. Rich said Wednesday she plans to travel the state in the coming months to meet voters and talk about policies. But she doesnt know when she will make a formal announcement that she will seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Scott. Rich, 70, lives in Weston and has served in the Legislature since 2000, when she was elected to the House. She was elected to the Senate in 2004.Burned bodies found near trail IDd as students ORLANDO Authorities have identified two bodies found burned this past weekend near a popular running trail in a suburb of Orlando as students from a local high school. The Orange County Sheriffs Office reported Wednesday that the bodies were identified by the medical examiner as Winter Park High School students, 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart. Detectives are calling the deaths a homicide, but not releasing any other information. Investigators have been at the scene since receiving a 911 call Sunday morning reporting a small fire burning near a storage shed.Panhandle towns mayor fires police chiefCRESTVIEW The Panhandle town of Crestview is looking for a new police chief. The citys mayor fired Police Chief Brian Mitchell on Wednesday. According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, Mayor David Cadle said an ongoing investigation of the police department by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has eroded his confidence in Mitchell. A former major in the department has pleaded not guilty to a charge of racketeering. The man was hired by Mitchell.Stolen painting handed over to Jewish familyTALLAHASSEE A nearly 500-year-old Italian painting is now back in the hands of a Jewish family that lost it during World War II. U.S. authorities in Tallahassee on Wednesday signed paperwork to return the Baroque painting to representatives of the family of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe. He died in 1940 shortly before the Nazis occupied France. The Vichy government later sold the painting, but the sale has been deemed illegal. The family plans to sell the painting Christ Carrying the Cross at an auction later this year. The painting could fetch up to $3.5 million. U.S. authorities seized the painting from a Florida museum last November after discovering the family had been seeking its return. (AP) California official joins networkSAN FRANCISCO California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is getting a new platform for sharing his made-in-San Francisco values a national cable television talk show. Current TV, the liberal-leaning cable channel co-founded by former Vice President Al Gore, announced Wednesday that it had retained the telegenic Democrat to host a weekly hour-long program during which he will chat up notables from Silicon Valley, Hollywood and beyond. The Gavin Newsom Show is scheduled to premiere in May during an as-yet undetermined time slot, Current spokeswoman Laura Nelson said. Newsom, who knows both Gore and Current CEO Joel Hyatt, approached the network with the idea for the program, the lieutenant governors spokesman, Francisco Castillo, said. He cleared it with his lawyers to make sure it would not pose a conflict with his elected office, Castillo said.NewsCorp suspends some non-U.S. stock voting rightsLOS ANGELES News Corp., the owner of the Fox television network, said Wednesday that it suspended the voting rights of some stock owned by foreigners to comply with a U.S. law that restricts the foreign ownership of broadcast licenses. The company said it discovered a potential violation as it was preparing to renew licenses for its 27 ownedand-operated TV stations. The suspension affects half the voting rights of non-U.S. owners of News Corp.s Class B shares, the class of stock with voting rights. The more widely traded Class A shares carry no votes in important decisions such as board member elections. Normally, such a move would increase the voting power of CEO and founder Rupert Murdoch and his familys trust, which holds a 39.7 percent voting stake in the company. But News Corp. said they agreed to refrain from voting shares they hold in a way that would increase their grip on the company.Lawsuit shows Bachelor discriminates those of colorNASHVILLE, Tenn. Two black men are taking The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to court with a lawsuit that claims the reality shows are blocking contestants of color from starring roles. Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson filed a federal lawsuit in Nashville Wednesday. It says the popular TV shows are engaged in a pattern of racial discrimination that intentionally excludes people of color. The two men say that after 10 years and a combined total of 23 seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, neither has featured a single person of color in a central role. The lawsuit names Michael Fleiss, the creator of the shows, as well as ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment and NZK Productions. Calls and emails to Fleiss publicist and an email to an ABC publicist were not immediately returned. The Nashville residents, one a small business owner and the other a teacher, applied unsuccessfully last year for the leading role in The Bachelor.Lucasfilm rejects bid to restart Northern California projectSAN RAFAEL, Calif. A company owned by George Lucas on Wednesday rejected a move by Marin County officials to persuade the filmmaker to resurrect a plan to build a massive film studio north of San Francisco. The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed a resolution commending the Star Wars creator and calling on him to move forward with the controversial Grady Ranch project. The panel pledged to help Lucasfilm Ltd. clear regulatory hurdles that could slow down its construction. Nearly 30 speakers praised the studio project and contributions by Lucas to the community at the meeting, the Marin Independent Journal reported.Judge will not dismiss Desperate Housewife lawsuitLOS ANGELES A judge has refused to dismiss Nicollette Sheridans lawsuit over the demise of her role on Desperate Housewives. City News Service says Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White urged the parties Wednesday to continue settlement talks but set a new trial for Sept. 10. A jury deadlocked 8-4 in favor of Sheridans claim after a trial last month. Sheridan sued ABC/Disney and series creator Marc Cherry for $6 Million for wrongful termination after her character, Edie Britt, was killed off in a 2008 episode. She seeks punitive damages.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012 3AMANAGER: Townsend offers to resignContinued From Page 1AFIRE: Warehouse blaze destroys flea marketContinued From Page 1A Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012 3A3A knockdown of the fire. Excavation equipment had to be brought in to move most of the charred debris so firefighters could spray hidden hot spots with water to prevent the fire from re-igniting. Although Boozer did not have the final estimated value of the building, he said just the vendors contents were estimated to be $100,000 to $130,000. This was a pretty extensive event, he said. Columbia County Fire Rescue responded to the blaze with at least nine units and 50 personnel who were joined by the Lake City Fire Department which responded with two units and four personnel. Mabile said the fire interrupted power and communications. All of the power to that [home furnishings building] and the phones to everything is out, he said. All of my Internet is out and of course my software runs off the Internet. He said there were no plans to close Morrells because of the fire. As soon as we get electricity back in that building well be up and running, he said. It was kind of neat all the phone calls I got from people worried us and making sure everybody was OK, he said. Its good to know that people care.

The nature of the investigation has not been disclosed. Townsends resignation also impacts the towns budget, as the town may not have enough money to offer the position to another person. We have a loan for our wastewater treatment plant and we have a loan and the interest on that invested amount is what weve been using to pay back the loan, Miller said. Due to the recession, the interest dividends emanating from that investment are less than theyve been in the past, so we currently have a shortfall. We are now looking at how do we cut our operating expenses in the next years budget so we can allocate more funds to a sinking fund to ensure we can pay back the loan as required. Town Clerk Shirley Heath will continue to serve as the interim town manager. However, filling the spot for the public works director has not been as simple. The town council has contracted with a licensed water operator, who is monitoring the requirements after hours from his other position. Andrew Green, who is on the town hall staff, will be taking water samples eight times a day, as required by the state Department of Environmental Protection. To deal with both the near term and the longer term, were dealing with our license operator, Green, and a representative from the Rural Water Department so that we can have better understanding of what the options are for going forward, Miller said, noting officials plan to look at automated water sampling options.From staff reportsOfficials on Wednesday released the name of a Wellborn man who died Tuesday when a tire failure caused him to lose control of his vehicle. Gary Lee Prince, 56, was ejected from his vehicle and died, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Officials waited to release the name until making contact with Princes next of kin. Prince was driving north on the inside lane of Interstate 75 in Hamilton County at 10:30 a.m. when his vehicles left front tire came apart, according to the report. Prince was unable to maintain control of his 1991 Ford Explorer, which began rotating and traveled across the center and right lane. The vehicle slid across the weigh station exit ramp and into the grassy shoulder, where it overturned at least once and ejected Prince, who was not wearing his seat belt. He died at the scene.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comFriends, neighbors and strangers are coming together to support a local family hit hard by a medical emergency. Daniel Evans of Lake City suffered a stroke Oct. 11. After surgery, intensive care and therapy, Evans was able to return home April 14. However Evans hospital bed and medical equipment take up the entire living room of the familys small, single-wide mobile home, said Cindi Diaz, family friend. Weve got to do something for him, she said. I know our community has pulled together for a lot of things. Evans worked for Homes of Merit for 18 years but was laid off, said his wife, Susan Evans. About six years ago the family of four, including a teenaged son and daughter, lost their home and moved into the single wide, she said. She said because of the stroke her husband is completely paralyzed on his left side and requires constant care. Susan Evans was a teacher at Covenant Community School, but has spent the last five months by her husbands side. He survived for a reason, she said. To help get the family into a larger home that is more accommodating to Evans long-term care, Applebees, 2893 West U.S. 90, is donating 10 percent of meals to the family on April 22 and 29. Diners must show this article or a flyer available at the restaurant to the waitress in order to donate. On May 5 there will be a Zumba class from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Teen Town, 533 NW DeSoto Street. The $10 class fee goes to family. Those who wish to help can also donate to the Daniel Evans Fund at First Federal Bank of Florida.

To the Editor:I am totally appalled that you would put an article in the paper that you have about Obama and Christians. I want you to know that I am a proud Democrat, and most definitely a Christian. I love the Lord more today than yesterday. I get up in the morning and before I begin my day, I do my devo tions and prayers. The Prayer of Protection is powerful. I get more out of that than going to church and listening to all the false proph ets throwing their false opinions and fear upon their congregation. My dad, father-in-law, hus band and son did their time in the military. They were and are proud of their country. When they were doing their service and showing their allegiance for our country, they were not thinking of Democrats, Republicans, or Independents. They were doing their job and praying to the Father and asking his son Jesus Christ to watch over them. They were not thinking of any of this political nonsense or hate that your writer is trying to spread. Shame on her and others. Obama has been trying to straighten out the mess that the Republicans have put us into with their corporations and big spend ing. I am not trying to be as low as your writer, but get real. Obama is looking after people that know what it is like to struggle to make ends meet, Making the mortgage payment, rent, utilities, groceries, etc. is the real challenge. I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I have always had to work for everything. I have paid my dues, as well as many others in this country. I feel everyone should be given a chance, not just the selected few, who think they own the world. There will be a surprise for you right wing Republicans when you get to heaven, if you get to heaven, there will be plenty of Democrat, liberal people smiling at you. Also, believe this, we will be praying for you, not hating you. The Bible says to love your neighbors and enemies. You need to read the scripture more instead of throwing your false innuendoes around. When it comes time for re-elec tion, I will vote for Obama and do it with pride, knowing that I am doing my duty to God and my country and showing the love that the Lord has placed on my heart. I refuse to carry hate around with me, or to judge others, if their opinion is different than mine. Remember we are all Gods children. Your writers opinion is the main reason I do not attend church any more. I prefer to be around good positive people that respect people and love mankind. Your writer needs to enjjoy Gods wonderful blessings, instead of spreading hate, false accusations and filling your pockets while ofthers suffer. Shame on you. OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA. 2012. Edie McGillFort White T he November presidential elec-tion is shaping up as a clear choice between a vision of a smaller federal role and President Obamas view that theres no limit to what the government can do. One thing the administration wont do is ensure the choices Americans make at the ballot box are prop-erly counted. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has declared that widespread voter fraud does not really exist in the United States. That was before video guerrillas presented him with an up-close view of the problem. Earlier this month, anti-corruption activist James OKeefe released footage show-ing a D.C. poll worker offering Mr. Holders ballot to an actor on primary day. The District does not require voters to pro-duce identification, so the actor simply provided Mr. Holders name and address and voila he was handed the ballot. He declined to accept it in order to avoid actual voter fraud. The stunt was an obvious attempt to embarrass the nations top law enforcement officer and demonstrate how easy it is to commit fraud where voter IDs are not manda-tory. Mr. Holders defenders argue that a single incident does not mean large-scale bal-lot manipulation is actually hap-pening. Still, ballot irregularities have been cataloged across the coun-try. In April 2011, officials for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Nevada pleaded guilty to running an illegal voter-registration scheme. Earlier this month, Democratic Party officials in Indiana were indicted on vote fraud charges for purportedly forging signa-tures on Barack Obamas 2008 primary petitions. In Virginia, 10 felons were charged with making false statements on voter registration forms. Mr. Holder has blocked new state laws requiring voters to present government-issued IDs at polling places. In December, the Justice Department cited the 1965 Voting Rights Act in nullifying South Carolinas new voter ID law, arguing that the new provision could discour-age minorities who do not have an ID from voting. In March, Justice also blocked Texas from enforcing its statute. The Pew Center on the States issued a report in February titled Inaccurate, Costly and Inefficient, which found about 24 million voter registrations, or 13 percent of the nations total, are invalid or contain major inaccuracies. As many as 2.75 million persons are registered in more than one state, and 1.8 million deceased individuals are still listed on voter rolls. President Obamas winning margin in the 2008 presidential election was less than 10 mil-lion, and George W. Bushs in 2004 was just 3 million. With such a large number of regis-tration inaccuracies, fraudulent ballots could determine the winner in a tight presidential contest. Fair elections are a precondition for democratic governance. The Obama administrations refusal to recognize the funda-mental importance of an hon-est count only strengthens the growing notion that it seeks advantage, not justice. America is better than that. Fair elections,Obama-style ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW P resident Barack Obama cant seem to get anything right, or at least no more than half right, as when he said the other day that Google and Facebook would not exist without government spending on basic science and research. It is true that the Internet arose out of a military project, and it is also true that one of the few places Obama is willing to cut spending is the military. Go figure. Spending is Obamas first love, ideologically speaking. Like most everyone else of leftward bent, he thinks throwing public money at whatever looks evil will make it good, will make it shine, will render Utopia. What it will actually do is destroy America, and you would think that vot ers would fight back by doing some throwing themselves, as in throwing the rascals out. Sadly, voters get led into sil liness, first by the politicians and then by too many reporters looking for zing instead of sub stance while wasting an awful lot of breath speculating on who will win. They need to get around more to serious issues. And no, I do not mean the story about Republicans being against contraceptives that will some how go away without the bless ing of the healthcare reform law known as Obamacare. The GOP is not against birth control. The truth is that everyone can get contraceptives cheaply while the poor can get them for free and that insurance companies have been providing contraceptive coverage for years. The chief contraceptive innova tion of Obamacare, besides achieving nothing by forcing some religions to act against their faith, is to end co-payments, thereby forcing everyone to pay more on insurance premiums. The provision sums up part of what Obamacare is about: inter ventions helping some by the most autocratic, complicated, inef fective means possible while hurt ing many others. But Obamacare is also about crazy spending. If you are in doubt, meet Charles Blahous. He is a terrifi cally smart guy whose specialty is entitlement programs. I myself met him when he was a top economic adviser to President George W. Bush. He is now a trustee for Medicare and Social Security, appointed to the posi tion by Obama, and has lately come out with a peer-reviewed, fact-filled analysis refuting political blather to the effect that Obamacare will actually save money. Though Obamacare was sup posed to lessen total health care spending, Blahous tells us, over the next 10 years it will boost it by some $1.15 trillion while add ing somewhere between $340 billion to $530 billion to federal deficits. But, hey, whats with these straightforward calcula tions? Doesnt Blahous know Washington prefers to operate in the midst of numerical confusion? For decades, the Congressional Budget Office has eased political life on both sides of the aisle by scoring the costs of some programs in a manner that says you have cut spending when you havent. Whoopee, said the Obama administra tion, looking to help subsidize Obamacare medical treatments for tens of millions of people with Medicare cuts that arent really cuts at all. They are in effect funds to be used for Medicare benefits in years to come. Are there lifeboats for this fiscal Titanic of ours? We could go under. The debt is projected to reach $16 trillion by the end of the fiscal year, and both par ties plans would increase it by trillions more over the next 10 years. The chief Republican plan at least increases it by less and focuses on some important reduced-spending ambitions with tax reform. The Obama plan seeks big-time tax hikes without true reform, meaning you can kiss economic growth goodbye. Obama virtually ignores the icebergs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Wait -my view is just a conservative extreme, right? Wrong. Any number of reason ably moderate economic think ers are shuddering out loud these days. The nation should pay attention, and, by the way, someone ought to tell Obama the most significant technologi cal innovations have come from private entrepreneurs.

The Pakistani-backed Taliban affiliate, keeping a disci plined cell-phone silence, ferried fighters, weapons and ammuni tion from across Afghanistan to simultaneously attack multiple targets in four provinces, includ ing two targets in Kabul. The attacks came as a surprise that Afghan President Hamid Karzai deemed an intel-ligence failure for us and espe-cially NATO. With Karzai, the failing is never totally his. The insurgents, using a favored tactic, occupied build-ings that were vacant or under construction, and then held out tenaciously. This was the first coordinated operation since Sept. 13, when there was an ineffective attack near the U.S. embassy and NATO headquarters. And it proved exactly what? Only that under certain circum-stances, the Taliban are capable of launching surprise attacks and willing to sustain large loss-es to do so. They failed to hold their gains, and they forced no major policy changes, neither the Afghans nor ours. The attack, however, does give those attending the NATO summit May 20-21 in Chicago food for thought. The attacks argue for a robust U.S. and NATO presence through 2013 and right up until -and maybe beyond -the planned 2014 han-dover to Afghan forces. We may not be able to exit Afghanistan as quickly and abruptly as the White House would like. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen perhaps went further than the Obama admin-istration would have liked when he pledged: We will not aban-don Afghanistan after 2014. We will stay and assist. NATO is here as Afghanistans partner.

oldest teenager because of his boyish appearance, Clark bridged the rebellious new music scene and traditional show business, and was equally comfortable whether chatting about music with Sam Cooke or bantering with Ed McMahon about TV bloopers. He thrived as the founder of Dick Clark Productions, supplying movies, game and music shows, beauty contests and more to TV. Among his credits: The $25,000 Pyramid, TVs Bloopers and Practical Jokes and the American Music Awards. For a time in the 1980s, he had shows on all three networks and was listed among the Forbes 400 of wealthiest Americans. Clark also was part of radio as partner in the United Stations Radio Network, which provided programs including Clarks to thousands of stations. Theres hardly any segment of the population that doesnt see what I do, Clark told The Associated Press in a 1985 interview. It can be embarrassing. People come up to me and say, I love your show, and I have no idea which one theyre talking about. The original American Bandstand was one of network TVs longestrunning series as part of ABCs daytime lineup from 1957 to 1987. It later aired for a year in syndication and briefly on the USA Network. Over the years, it introduced stars ranging from Buddy Holly to Madonna. The shows status as an American cultural institution was solidified when Clark donated Bandstands original podium and backdrop to the Smithsonian Institution. Clark joined Bandstand in 1956 after Bob Horn, whod been the host since its 1952 debut, was fired. Under Clarks guidance, it went from a local Philadelphia show to a national phenomenon. I played records, the kids danced, and America watched, was how Clark once described the series simplicity. In his 1958 hit Sweet Little Sixteen, Chuck Berry sang that theyll be rocking on Bandstand, Philadelphia, P-A. As a host, he had the smooth delivery of a seasoned radio announcer. As a producer, he had an ear for a hit record. He also knew how to make wary adults welcome this odd new breed of music in their homes. Clark endured accusations that he was in with the squares, with critic Lester Bangs defining Bandstand as a leggily acceptable euphemism of the teenage experience. In a 1985 interview, Clark acknowledged the complaints. But I knew at the time that if we didnt make the presentation to the older generation palatable, it could kill it. So along with Little Richard and Chuck Berry and the Platters and the Crows and the Jayhawks ... the boys wore coats and ties and the girls combed their hair and they all looked like sweet little kids into a high school dance, he said. But Clark defended pop artists and artistic freedom, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said in an online biography of the 1993 inductee. He helped give black artists their due by playing original R&B recordings instead of cover versions by white performers, and he condemned censorship. His stroke in December 2004 forced him to miss his annual appearance on Dick Clarks New Years Rockin Eve. He returned the following year and, although his speech at times was difficult to understand, many praised his bravery, including other stroke victims. Still speaking with difficulty, he continued taking part in his New Years shows, though in a diminished role. Ryan Seacrest became the main host. Im just thankful Im still able to enjoy this once-a-year treat, he told The Associated Press by e-mail in December 2008 as another New Years Eve approached. He was honored at the Emmy Awards in 2006, telling the crowd: I have accomplished my childhood dream, to be in show business. Everybody should be so lucky to have their dreams come true. Ive been truly blessed. He was born Richard Wagstaff Clark in Mount Vernon, N.Y., in 1929. His father, Richard Augustus Clark, was a sales manager who worked in radio. Clark idolized his athletic older brother, Bradley, who was killed in World War II. In his 1976 autobiography, Rock, Roll & Remember, Clark recalled how radio helped ease his loneliness and turned him into a fan of Steve Allen, Arthur Godfrey and other popular hosts. From Godfrey, he said, he learned that a radio announcer does not talk to those of you out there in radio land; a radio announcer talks to me as an individual. Clark began his career in the mailroom of a Utica, N.Y., radio station in 1945. By age 26, he was a broadcasting veteran, with nine years experience on radio and TV stations in Syracuse and Utica, N.Y., and Philadelphia. He held a bachelors degree from Syracuse University. While in Philadelphia, Clark befriended McMahon, who later credited Clark for introducing him to his future Tonight Show boss, Johnny Carson. In the 1960s, American Bandstand moved from black-and-white to color, from weekday broadcasts to once-a-week Saturday shows and from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Although its influence started to ebb, it still featured some of the biggest stars of each decade, whether Janis Joplin, the Jackson 5, Talking Heads or Prince. But Clark never did book two of rocks iconic groups, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Elvis Presley also never performed, although Clark managed an on-air telephone interview while Presley was in the Army. When Michael Jackson died in June 2009, Clark recalled working with him since he was a child, adding, of all the thousands of entertainers I have worked with, Michael was THE most outstanding. Many have tried and will try to copy him, but his talent will never be matched. Clark kept more than records spinning with his Dick Clark Productions. Its credits included the Academy of Country Music and Golden Globe awards; TV movies including the Emmy-winning The Woman Who Willed a Miracle (1984), the $25,000 Pyramid game show and the 1985 film Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. Clark himself made a cameo on The Fresh Prince of BelAir and a dramatic appearance as a witness on the original Perry Mason. He was an involuntary part of Michael Moores Academy Award-winning Bowling for Columbine, in which Clark is seen brushing off Moore as the filmmaker confronts him about working conditions at a restaurant owned by Clark. In 1974, at ABCs request, Clark created the American Music Awards after the network lost the broadcast rights to the Grammy Awards. He was also an author, with Dick Clarks American Bandstand and such selfhelp books as Dick Clarks Program for Success in Your Business and Personal Life and Looking Great, Staying Young. His unchanging looks inspired a joke in Peggy Sue Gets Married, the 1986 comedy starring Kathleen Turner as an unhappy wife and mother transported back to 1960. Watching Clark on a black and white TV set, she shakes her head in amazement, Look at that man, he never ages. Clarks clean-cut image survived a music industry scandal. In 1960, during a congressional investigation of payola or bribery in the record and radio industry, Clark was called on to testify. He was cleared of any suspicions but was required by ABC to divest himself of record-company interests to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest. The demand cost him $8 million, Clark once estimated. His holdings included partial ownership of Swan Records, which later released the first U.S. version of the Beatles smash She Loves You. In 2004, Clark announced plans for a revamped version of American Bandstand. The show, produced with American Idol creator Simon Fuller, was to feature a host other than Clark. He was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 1994 and served as spokesman for the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Clark, twice divorced, had a son, Richard Augustus II, with first wife Barbara Mallery and two children, Duane and Cindy, with second wife Loretta Martin. He married Kari Wigton in 1977. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012 Mother Lestee CookMother Lestee Cook was born December 10, 1928 to the late Horace and Evella McHenry.

By TOM MURPHYAssociated PressKaila and Mark Nickel were saving to buy a house. But their plans took a detour when Penny, their miniature Schnauzer, started shivering uncontrollably one evening last summer. In an effort to find out why, the Nickels dipped deep into their down payment fund. Veterinarians told the Nickels that X-rays revealed an unknown mass in Pennys stomach. The 2-year-old was unlikely to have cancer, so the vets recommended exploratory surgery. The mass turned out to be a collection of blood, yet the doctors never determined where it came from or what caused it. Penny is doing fine now, but the Edmond, Okla., couples bank balance is still recovering. The surgery, medication and subsequent vet visits cost nearly $4,000. Big, unexpected bills like this are prompting more animal lovers to seek pet insurance. Americans spent an estimated $450 million on coverage for their pets last year, and they are expected to spend around $500 million this year, according to American Pet Products Association, a nonprofit trade association. An estimated 3 million dogs and 800,000 cats are covered by pet insurance in the United States, according to the association. Policies for pets come with various terms, such as deductibles, co-insurance and coverage exclusions that must be sorted out before committing to a policy, just like health insurance for their owners. Plus pet owners have to decide if a policy is the right solution for them. Here are some of the issues to consider: HOW DOES IT WORK? Pet insurance policies can cover costs associated with emergencies, surgeries, medications, routine care or ongoing care for conditions such as diabetes. It does not cover conditions that existed before the coverage started. Coverage, which is typically billed monthly, adds up to about $200 or more annually for cats, and can cost as much as $500 or more for dogs. That depends on the particular plan, the animals age and where the pet owner lives. Some breeds are prone to certain illnesses and that can affect how much their owners pay for a policy, and the terms of coverage. For instance, many policies for bulldogs exclude hereditary conditions like breathing problems that are common with the breed, said Chris Ashton, co-owner of Petplan Pet Insurance. His company covers those conditions, but to do so, it charges an average annual premium of $650. That is more than 70 percent higher than the $380 annual average for all dogs. Pet insurance policies require the owner to pay the veterinarian first and then submit a reimbursement claim. Deductibles and co-insurance portions of the bill the customer is responsible for are subtracted from the reimbursement, and those also vary by plan. Shoppers can find policies on the Internet. Some also can get coverage through work. Employers like home improvement retailer Home Depot Inc. give their workers a chance to sign up, but they dont pay part of the premium like they do for human health insurance. IS THIS COVERAGE WORTH IT? Expensive treatments are becoming common in veterinary care. Dogs routinely receive chemotherapy, and animals also receive heart pacemakers or stem cell treatments to correct hip problems. Those procedures can cost several thousand dollars. About one in eight pet owners who took their animals to the vet in the past year spent $1,000 or more, according to an AP-Petside.com poll conducted last fall. Thats money many pet owners are willing to pay even if they dont have coverage.

By LAURAN NEERGAARDAssociated PressWASHINGTON Be happy it seems to be good for your heart. Scientists have long known that Type A personalities and people who are chronically angry, anxious or depressed have a higher risk of heart attacks. Now a Harvard review of the flip side of that psychology concludes that being upbeat and optimistic just may help protect against heart disease. Rather than focusing only on how to lessen heart risks, it might also be useful to focus on how we might bolster the positive side of things, said lead researcher Julia Boehm of the Harvard School of Public Health. Boehm reviewed dozens of studies examining a positive outlook as determined by various psychological measurements on heart health. Optimism in particular seems key, as a number of studies found the most optimistic people had half the risk of a first heart attack when compared to the least optimistic, Boehm said. Why? Previous work shows the stress associated with negative psychological traits can lead to damage of arteries and the heart itself. Boehm found that people with a better sense of wellbeing tend to have healthier blood pressure, cholesterol and weight, and are more likely to exercise, eat healthier, get enough sleep and avoid smoking. But she cautioned that it will take more research to tease apart if a positive outlook makes people feel more like taking heart-healthy steps or whether living healthier helps you feel more positive. The review, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was published Tuesday by the Psychological Bulletin. More research is needed but that link between psychological and physical wellbeing makes sense, said Dr. Elizabeth Jackson of the University of Michigan and American College of Cardiology, who wasnt involved with the review. Among her own heart patients, she has noticed that those who feel they have some control over their lives and are invested in their care have better outcomes. Insurance guards against big vet bills ASSOCIATED PRESSLuis Calderon is pictured with his German shepherd, Buddy, right, and his wifes dog Lola, left, in El Monte, Calif. Calderon said if Buddy needed a vet, he would have to go through public services or use credit. A growing number of pet owners are buying insurance to protect themselves against unexpected treatments that can easily top several thousand dollars as veterinary care becomes more sophisticated. Positive outlook may be good for your heart Dear Pharmacist, I live in chronic pain, its usually my joints but now my nerves are involved. My tests are all normal, and my doctor gives me Celebrex, Vicodin and Flexeril. I feel doped up, and still live in pain. What else can I do? --B.C., Sanibel Island, Florida Answer: Avoid eating a certain class of foods known to ignite pain in the muscles, joints and nerves. Some of you can guess which foods Im talking about here, especially if you grew up in tropical regions of the United States, where your summer camp counselor told you to avoid the wild berries of deadly nightshade, which contain belladonna. Nightshades belong to the Solenaceae family and I bet you eat a nightshade food each day. The most common are tomatoes, white potatoes (not sweet potatoes or yams), potato starch is found in hundreds of medications; eggplant, and peppers (including all those deliciously spicy peppers like cayenne, chili, and habenero). Tabasco sauce, which contains large amounts of heat-causing capsicum annum, ranks up there. Paprika is a sneaky one, showing up in flavoring mixes or under added spices on the label. Other nightshades include goji berries (bummer, theyre the latest rage in the antioxidant crowd), ashwagandha, Cape gooseberries, ground cherries, and garden huckleberries (thankfully not blueberries). We all know cigarettes cause cellular damage, but they are also a nightshade! These all cause pain! If you dont believe me, have a fullon nightshade party and load the salsa on your breakfast omelet, have French fries with lunch, and for dinner, eat eggplant parmesan with some stir-fry peppers and tomatoes. NSAIDs anyone? Because all those nightshades are sure to cause a flare-up for you, necessitating non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The flare-up could take 3 hours to 3 days to occur, so connecting the dots is tricky. If you are sensitive to weather changes, this could be a sign of nightshade sensitivity, dont ask me why. So whats the problem with some our favorite farmers market heroes? Well, nightshades contain alkaloids that accumulate and block an enzyme called cholinesterase lighting the bodys pain fuse: Muscle spasm, aches, joint pain, tenderness, hip pain, inflammation, and stiff movement. Heartburn too! And you thought heartburn was related to a Prilosec-deficiency, didnt you? While symptoms may dissipate in a few days or weeks if there is no more consumption, the problem is that we keep eating nightshades in almost every meal. The body never gets clear of them so it stays on fire 24/7 despite all your pain-relievers. If youre otherwise healthy, eat up! But if live in chronic pain, or have Rheumatoid arthritis, try completely eliminating nightshades for 3 solid months. Hang in there because it takes a few weeks before the pain even begins to retreat. Ive read anecdotal reports where some people kiss pain goodbye forever, just by avoiding nightshades. Can you imagine? Complete pain relief, it costs nothing and the only downside is an occasional craving. DEAR PHARMACIST SUZY COHENNightshade foods delectable or deadly?
Q: My cardiologist says I have aortic stenosis and need a new aortic valve. He also mentioned that the FDA has approved a new procedure that replaces the aortic valve without open-heart surgery. This option sounds safer to me, but my doctor says this new option is not for everyone. Can you walk me through the pros and cons of these two approaches? A: The short answer may seem facetious: Ask your doctors. In fact, its a complicated decision that requires an individualized answer depending on your health, your preferences and -above all -the experience and skill of your cardiac care team. With that said, lets discuss some general considerations. The aortic valve is a threeflapped structure that ensures the one-way flow of blood from the hearts main pumping chamber to the rest of the body. In some people, the aortic valve becomes encrusted with calcium deposits that stiffen and narrow it, restricting blood flow. When people with aortic stenosis start feeling symptoms such as light-headedness or fainting, breathlessness, fatigue and loss of appetite, quality of life goes downhill quickly until the valve is replaced. Until recently, replacing the aortic valve required openheart surgery. Now that the FDA has approved a no-surgery technique for replacing a failed aortic valve, many people with aortic stenosis are asking, Can I get this procedure? The answer is Maybe. Thats because the FDA has currently restricted its use to people who are not good candidates for open-heart surgery. As you point out, its easy to see why people might prefer the new approach, called transcatheter aortic valve implantation, or TAVI. The new valve is placed using a wire, or catheter, that is maneuvered into the heart from a blood vessel in the groin. Both the hospital stay and recovery are shorter and less painful than with open-heart surgery. The FDA based its approval on a clinical trial dubbed PARTNER. In this trial, 69 percent of the patients undergoing TAVI were alive after a year, compared with 50 percent of a group that received standard therapy, which included balloon valvuloplasty, an attempt to increase the valve opening with a balloontipped catheter. PARTNER data presented at a scientific meeting in late 2011 showed that more than two-thirds of the people in the standard-care group had died after two years, compared with 43 percent in the TAVI group. Another analysis found that quality-of-life scores after one year among the TAVI group improved by 32 points on a 100-point scale, while scores among the standardcare group improved by only 4 points. But although it prolongs life and is less invasive than openheart surgery, TAVI has its drawbacks. TAVI recipients in the PARTNER trial had more than twice the number of strokes and many more serious bleeding complications than patients in the other group. The bleeding problems were mostly related to the wide catheter thats used during TAVI. So its important to look at the benefits and drawbacks of TAVI on an individual basis, taking into account your specific health status. Thats where your heart team can be very useful in advising you. People who are treated with TAVI may live longer than patients who undergo standard therapy, but the procedure does have limitations that need to be considered, too. The FDA stipulates that a surgeon must help determine which people with aortic stenosis are eligible for TAVI. Patients may be eligible because they have an unhealthy aorta (the main pipeline for blood from the heart to the body), chest tissue that wont heal well due to past radiation treatment, previous artery-bypass surgery that makes another surgery impractical or simply a very weak heart. The TAVI procedure is an prime example of astounding medical innovation. But it still takes old-fashioned experience and judgment to decide when to use this new technology.

By JENNIFER KAYAssociated PressMIAMI Following a two-day trip to Haiti, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday that she was encouraged by the Haitian governments efforts to boost health in the Caribbean country still battling a cholera outbreak that began after the 2010 earthquake. Haiti, the United States and international partners announced this week a nationwide vaccination campaign to immunize Haitian children against diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles rubella, polio and other diseases. That program and efforts to curb the cholera epidemic bode well for the health of vulnerable Haiti, said Sebelius, who praised Haitian Health Minister Dr. Florence Duperval Guillaume for focusing on projects that could show results to international donors investing in long-term improvements to sanitation and access to clean water. Were eager to work with her, Sebelius said. Plans to use some donor funding for earthquake recovery efforts are still waiting for approval as Haitis government awaits confirmation of a new prime minister. Until then, Guillaume is very focused on measurable, deliverable results, understand ing that in order to have continued interest from the donor community, in order to make sure that their budget resources are spent wisely, they needed to focus on areas that really made a difference in peoples health and could show people that there were results, Sebelius said. Cholera has killed more than 7,000 people and sickened 530,000 more, according to Haitian health officials. Last week, Haitis Health Ministry approved a separate campaign by Boston-based Partners in Health and the Haitian-run Gheskio Center to distribute a two-dose, oral vaccine to roughly 100,000 people. The cholera vaccination program was supposed to begin in January, but an ethics committee in the Health Ministry delayed the distribution out of concern that the two groups were using the vaccine as a research project. The nationwide vaccination program to prevent infectious diseases includes support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from the GAVI Alliance, a group of international health organi zations, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others. On her way back to Washington, Sebelius toured womens health, pediatric and dental services at a Borinquen Medical Centers of Miami-Dade clinic on the edge of Miamis Little Haiti. Roughly 40 percent of Borniquens patients at its seven clinics are Haitian, a number that has swelled since 2010 with Haitians displaced by the earthquake and their South Florida family members seeking care, said president and CEO Robert Linder. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx8AHealth Outstanding Leader of Inpatient TherapyOur therapy program is designed to rehabilitate individuals back to their highest level of independence and functioning.

She says she supports Warlick as her replacement and wants to ensure the sta-bility of the program. The move comes less than a year after her diagno-sis with early onset demen-tia-Alzheimers type. Warlick has been Summitts assistant for 27 seasons and was a three-time All-American with the Lady Vols. Womens hoops all-time winning coach to retire.By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High coach Jimmy Williams had to let go of one of his favorites on Wednesday as Michaela Burton signed to play col-lege softball at St. Johns River State College. The good news for Williams is that he still gets to coach Burton through a playoff run. Since the first day, she has always been my favor-ite, Williams said. In 13 years, Ive seen a lot of tal-ent, but I knew her fresh-man season that she would be one of those to play college. But Burton isnt quite ready to make the move. My dad told me a little while back that I only had two games left, Burton said. I started crying, until I thought we still have dis-tricts, the playoffs and final-ly a state championship to play for. Burton will try to help the Lady Tigers earn their third district title in four years against Atlantic Coast High at 7 p.m. today in Jacksonville. It would mean the world to me, Burton said. But her ultimate goal doesnt end at a district title. I would love to leave high school with a ring on my finger, she said. Id love to go out as state champions. For Burton, its never been about the individual achievements. She does all the little things to help a team win. It doesnt really matter to me, because its a team game and thats how I look at it, Burton said. After playing shortstop through her sophomore year, Williams moved Burton to second base. Its a move that has paid off for the Lady Tigers. She made our defense championship caliber, Williams said. Moving was a sign that shes a team player. When we have con-versations its never about her. Its always about team. Once you understand the true meaning of this game is being about the team, youre going to be successful. Burton learned that lesson early. Making the move felt really good, Burton said. I have more range and was able to make more plays for the team. And Burton feels that the team-first attitude is one of her best assets. I think I have a good attitude, she said. Ive worked really hard to get where I am. And where she was Wednesday was signing a college scholarship. She knows that all started at home. I wouldnt be standing here today without my parents, she said. They have supported me all the way from the start. Theyve done so much between all the tournaments and travel. My whole family has been supportive. Williams was also big on the support and Burton didnt go without noticing. He always had the drive for us, Burton said. He wanted the best for us and I think hes done pretty good at getting that. Now Burton will try her best for Vikings coach Katie Brosky. And Brosky thinks Burton will make an immediate impact. I actually caught onto Michaela by watching Jessica Keene, Brosky said. Everywhere I went, Michaela would be there and she was just outstanding. She makes all the great plays and has great character. For now, the Vikings will have to wait, because Burton isnt through as a Lady Tiger.

PG-13 The Borgias Paolo Nurse Jackie The Big C Gigolos Sunset Place ASSOCIATED PRESSColorado Rockies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer is congratulated by teammates in the sixth inning of a baseba ll game against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday in Denve r. The Rockies won 5-3. Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher to win a major league game.Moyer fends off Father Time to notch win at 49By PAT GRAHAMAssociated PressDENVER Jamie Moyer is headed to the Hall of Fame. Well, maybe his uniform anyway. Or perhaps even his glove. Cooperstown has asked for some sort of memo-rabilia from Moyer to commemorate his record-setting night as the 49-year-old left-hander became the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league contest. And whatever the Hall of Fame decides it wants, Moyer said he will certain-ly deliver after throwing seven efficient innings to help the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Tuesday. To have your name mentioned with great players of the past or Hall of Fame players, its pretty special, Moyer said. For Moyer (1-2), making history was nice. But stopping the Rockies two-game skid was just as rewarding. Moyer was effective all evening as he picked up his 268th career win, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer for 34th on the career list. He relied on a cutter the Padres couldnt get good wood on and a 78-mph fast-ball that danced all over the place. Moyer gave up just six hits and two runs both unearned as he kept the Padres hitters off balance and guessing. Today, for me, just like its been my previous two starts going out and try-ing to give my best effort, Moyer said. Thats a tried and true formula for success, one thats worked well for Moyer over a career that has stretched nearly a quarter century and included 689 games. Moyer earned that elusive win for the ages in his third start of the season. He is 49 years, 150 days old. Thats important to note since before Moyers effort the oldest pitcher to win a game in the majors was Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers on Sept. 13, 1932, when he was 49 years, 70 days old. Moyer doesnt know all that much about Quinn. He wishes he did, though. As players, we should know more about the game, the history of the game, Moyer said. You need to respect the game and the people that came before you. Hes definitely a part of baseballs lore now.
DEAR ABBY: My exhusband likes to call to ask me for advice. Our most recent conversation was in regard to his girlfriend and her sexual past, which he knew about before they started dating. He now disapproves of her history and he began calling her unpleasant names. He tells me he deserves better but intends to stay with her until he gets bored. Hearing this sort of talk gives me a stomachache and heartburn. I feel ter-rible for the woman. I want to be a friend to my ex, but Im not sure I can handle the stress it causes. He has had a hard life, and I didnt make it any easier by divorcing him. Is the only solution not to take his calls, like my friends tell me? Im not sure I can do that without major guilt. -WISCONSIN READER DEAR READER: Ill offer another option: The next time your ex starts asking you for relationship advice, tell him you dont like hearing the way he talks about his girlfriend. Explain that it makes you so uncomfortable that you prefer to avoid the topic of his love life. If he respects your wishes, continue taking his calls. If not, because you find them upsetting, refuse them. And please, stop feeling guilty about the divorce. From your description of your former husband, he is a user, and youre lucky to be rid of him. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I attend a church with about 350 wor-shippers. The church pro-vides a supervised nursery for infants to 2 years of age. Most parents with babies use it. However, one couple has a 2-year-old child and a 2-month-old baby. These parents do not take advantage of the nursery, but keep the kids in the sanctuary. Last Sunday the baby, who was in the fathers arms, cried during most of the service. The parents may be able to tune it out, but many of us were very distracted by the wailing. The father is a schoolteacher. I couldnt help but wonder how this teacher would handle a student who caused such a disrup-tion in his classroom. I dont think he would toler-ate an hour of loud crying from anyone. Why dont these people understand their behavior prevents others from worshipping as they would like? -SILENCE, PLEASE DEAR SILENCE, PLEASE: Thats a good question, and one I rec-ommend you pose to the person who was conduct-ing the service. Out of consideration for the congregation, he or she should remind the par-ents that the nursery is available, and stress that in the future it be used to prevent the problem from recurring because the dis-ruption caused so many complaints. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I was recently a bridesmaid at a friends wedding. The bride gave all of us brides-maids gifts after the recep-tion. The bags were fancy and contained expensive gourmet chocolate candy. When I went to open mine, I noticed the box had already been unwrapped and half of it had been eaten. I didnt say anything because I didnt want to hurt her feelings or seem ungrateful. What should I do? -BRIDESMAID IN TENNESSEE DEAR BRIDESMAID: While its unfortunate, I see no reason to bring it up now. Expensive or not, its only a box of choco-lates. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put everything youve got into personal gain. Invest in you and what you can do to improve your situation.

Your abil-ity to find solutions and formulate a simple plan will help you gain senior-ity. Dont be surprised if someone is jealous of you. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your thoughts to yourself. Accept the inevitable.

Be creative and you will come up with a way to enhance your living arrangements to better suit your personal and pro-fessional needs. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youve got all the moves and ideas to win favors. Communication is the key to getting what you want. Your outgoing nature will bring greater interest from someone who wants to partner with you to reach similar goals. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Put your money and possessions in a safe place. You stand to lose if you are too trusting. Joint ventures, lending or bor-rowing are all bad ideas right now. Focus on home and family, and work to secure your position and your future. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can turn a good idea into a profitable ven-ture. Dont just talk about your plans; spring into action and get things up and running. Love is in the stars, and a romantic plan should be executed. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont take anything or anyone for granted. You are better off doing things on your own.
