By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Equal Employment Opportunity Commission dismissed former Lake City Police Department Capt. Robert Smiths discrimination allegations against the department after failing to substantiate his claims of racial bias, according to a dismissal summary document. The dismissal summary indicated EEOC is closing its file on Smiths claims. The document was obtained by the Lake City Reporter through a public records request. Based on its investigation, EEOC is unable to conclude that the information obtained establishes violations of the stat-utes, the letter read. Smith, who is black, filed the EEOC complaint last fall, claiming he was treat-ed differently than a white captain in the department. Smith blamed LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore and City Manager Wendell Johnson for the discrimination against him. The EEOC report rejected Smiths accusations. Smith was placed on paid administrative leave from the time he filed an initial discrimina-tion complaint against the city in November until he was fired April 24. The Lake City Reporter on Sunday inaccurately described the correspon-dence as simply a right-to-sue letter. The Dismissal and Notice of Rights summary does describe Smiths legal right to file a legal claim within 90 days, but also notified Smith that there were no findings of merit and his EEOC complaint file was closed. City Manager Wendell Johnson said he was satisfied with the EEOCs lack of findings. Were pleased to see that the response from EEOC was a dismissal without any statutory violations against the city, he said. I certainly feel that weve made our decisions based on the actions of Mr. Smith. We filed a response to his claims against the city and that was a position statement to the EEOC. It proves myself and Chief (Argatha) Gilmore have cer-tainly been aboveboard in our treatment of Mr. Smith. Smith stood his ground on Monday.Basically they issued this letter and didnt make a determination one way or the other and they did not address any of the other issues that came up after the charges were filed, Smith said. They issued me a right to sue letter.

Associated Press Avengers hits big screen with a blast NEW YORK T he hype has been build ing for years and it couldnt possibly be more deafening at this point. After a series of sum mer blockbusters that individually introduced Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America, all these characters come together alongside several other friends and foes in Marvels The Avengers. And with director and co-writer Joss Whedon, they couldnt be in better hands. Hes pulled off the tricky feat of juggling a large ensemble cast and giving everyone a chance to shine, of balancing splashy set pieces with substantive ideol ogy. Stuff gets blowed up real good in beautifully detailed 3-D in The Avengers the area in and around Grand Central Terminal, for exam ple, gets obliterated beyond recogni tion in an exhausting, climactic battle but the film as a whole is never a mess from a narrative perspective. Whedon keeps a tight rein on some potentially unwieldy material, and the result is a film that simulta neously should please purists (one of which he is) as well as those who arent necessarily comic-book aficionados. He also stays true to the characters while establishing a tone thats very much his own. As he did with the recent horror hit The Cabin in the Woods, which he cowrote and produced, Whedon has come up with a script thats cheeky and breezy, full of witty banter and sly pop-culture shout-outs as well as self-referential humor, one that moves with an infectious energy that (almost) makes you lose track of its two-and-a-half-hour running time. Former Miss New Hampshire USA arrested MANCHESTER Police said a former Miss New Hampshire USA faces a simple assault charge stem ming from a con frontation with her boyfriend. Nicole Houde, 26, was arrested Wednesday after the beauty queen punched, kicked, scratched and bit Scott Nickerson, 33, also of Manchester.

Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE TUESDAY, MAY 1, 2012 3A he had known Rajni Patel for some time. He was one of the best guys we knew of in Lake City, he said. Funeral services for Rajni Patel will take place from 2-4 p.m. today at the DeesParrish Family Funeral Home Chapel, 458 South Marion Ave. Dees-Parrish Family Funeral Home is in charge of the arrange ments. Authorities have not made any arrests in the case, but are continuing to follow up on potential leads. Were still receiving tips and were continuing to follow up on those tips and pursue leads, said Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public information officer. We have received a lot of tips and a lot of information and right now we are sorting through all that informa tion trying to verify it and run down all those leads. Its been a lot of useful information. The people in the community have been very helpful. Its a very traumatic experience and people in the community want to see the case get solved. Theyve been very helpful in giving us infor mation. Authorities have not recovered the murder weapon. Shaw said personnel from the State Attorneys Office and the Columbia County Sheriffs Office continue to help with the investigation. All supporting agen cies are still supporting and helping us, he said. Weve devoted nearly our entire investigative division to the murder at this time. Theyre working hard. Patels body was sent to medical examiners office Friday where officials looked to verify the cause of death. Patel did go to the medical examiners offi cer, however we wont have the pathologists report back for an offi cial cause of death for a couple of weeks, Shaw said. However, the pre liminary reports are that his death was due to gun shot wounds. Authorities are look ing for two suspects, one a young black man about five feet seven inches tall, weighing around 180 pounds. He has short hair and was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and blue jean shorts. The other suspect is a light-skinned black man in his mid-30s weighing 230 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark straw hat with a white T-shirt, light blue jeans and dark shoes. The man had white tape across his nose and the left side of his neck. He reportedly walked with a limp. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 1:36 p.m. Friday, LCPD received notifica tion of a robbery at A&M Discount Beverage store. Officers arrived at 1:37 p.m. and found the suspects gone and Rajni Patel shot. Witnesses told authori ties there were two sus pects and gave a descrip tion of the men. Authorities said the two suspects went into the store around the same time and the first suspect took the money before fleeing on foot and the second sus pect shot Patel. Patels wife, Daxa Patel, was behind the counter when the men entered the store and Rajni Patel was coming out of a broom clos et off from the side of the counter when he was shot multiple times. Shots were fired at Daxa Patel but she was unhurt. The gunman then attempted to carjack a white Mercury in the parking lot while trying to get away from the crime scene. However, the occupant of the vehicle would not allow the man to enter the car and drove away to an S&S convenience store about a mile east of A&M Discount Beverage and called the police. The suspect then fled on foot heading east from A&M Discount Beverage. ROBBERY: Search continues for pair of suspects Continued From Page 1A fewer than 2007. Nonviolent crimes increased by 2,686 to 671,297, or 0.4 percent. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement uses seven index crimes to develop the crime statistics. The statistics are based on: Murder, forcible sex offens es, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The statistics compare the number of crimes to the previous year. In the county there were three homicides reported in 2011, compared to one domestic violence homi cide in 2010. Those three homicides have been solved and the Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrested the suspect within hours of the crime, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said in a pre pared statement. In 2011 the Columbia County Sheriffs Office reported nine forcible sex offenses, compared to 25 in 2010, representing a 64 percent decrease. County law enforce ment officials also report ed 11 robberies in 2011, compared to 13 in 2010, a 15 percent decrease; 210 aggravated assaults in 2011 compared to 148 in 2010, a 41 percent increase; 532 burglaries in 2011 com pared to 386 in 2010, a 37 percent increase, 840 larce nies were reported in 2011 compared to 827 in 2010, a 1 percent increase and 34 motor vehicle thefts were reported in 2011 compared with 62 in 2010, a decrease of 45 percent. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office is proud that our citizens have con tinued to partner with the sheriffs office to not only report crime but to be proac tive in the solving of crimes, Hunter said. Additionally, your deputy sheriffs have worked extremely hard this past year and their invest ment in their duties and their commitment to the commu nity has had a major impact. This positive impact is evi denced by the increase in the crime solve rate. According to data from the report, crime in the city limits rose and police department officials said one of the most significant challenges for the agency is the increase in property crimes. Theft of air conditioner parts and catalytic con verters contributed to the increase of these types of crimes, said Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public infor mation officer, in a press release. There has also been an increase burglar ies in our community. The police department urged residents to make sure valuables are out of sight and doors and win dows secured. Authorities also urged res idents to use outside lighting during nighttime hours. Statistics indicate there were no murders in Lake City in 2011, while there were three murders in 2010; forcible sodomy cases were the same in both years with one reported case for each year; forcible fondling incidents increased from two cases to five cases in 2011; robbery cases increased from 27 to 28 cases; aggravated assault cases increased by 11 inci dents from 149 to 160; bur glary cases increased by 87 incidents, from 175 inci dents to 262; larceny cases increased by 77, from 581 to 658 cases last year, while motor vehicle theft cases increased by three, from 21 to 24. Prior to the Uniform Crime Report, the Lake City Police Department statistical data indicated an increase in property crimes, Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said. As a result, the police department took proac tive steps by working spe cial details to identify and apprehend those persons who are committing these crimes. Additionally, our crime prevention officer is working with neighbor hoods and community groups to educate them on how not to be a victim of a crime of opportunity. We are encouraging our citi zens to be vigilant in report ing suspicious persons or incidents in their neigh borhoods and businesses. Together we can make our community a safer place to work and play. Police department offi cials also noted concern over domestic violence type offenses and said domestic violence continues to rise. The Associated Press con tributed to this story. CRIME: Report issued Continued From Page 1A and Hepatitis C, says he was using the plants for medicinal purposes. Mullins wore a western style suit, cowboy boots and a neck brace to his court hearing on Monday, mak ing what he hopes will be his last appearance in the Columbia County courtroom to accept the deal. The plea bargain mandates that Mullins pay a $500 fee and that he report to a pretrial officer once a month for the next six months. The deal would allow Mullins to test positive for THC, the active chemical in marijuana, because of his prescription to Marinol. Marinol is a synthetic drug with similar proper ties to marijuana that is used to treat nausea and increase appetite. Its an incredible deal, Mullins attorney Michael Minardi said. Its all reward and no risk with the deal realistically. Because if something does happen and he does violate then we come back to court and we fight it. If Mullins had not agreed to the plea bargain, he could have faced up to 11 years in prison, Minardi said. Mullins said he was conflicted about his decision to accept the plea bargain. I would consider it a win and a loss, Minardi said. Were winning because they are not asking for a conviction, they are not asking for jail time, they are not asking him to be on probation or take a criminal charge on his record. So from that perspec tive it is a win. But obviously not being able to establish his medicinal defense is a loss in some ways. Mullins wife Karen said it was a tough decision to make and that the couple was not certain of their choice until the morning of the hearing. Its unfortunate that it has to be this way because that particular law, I feel, is wrong. The state shouldnt come between a doctor and his patient, she said. Hes a sick vet eran, hes not hurting anyone. Hes a patient, not a criminal. VETERAN: Plea deal means no time in prison Continued From Page 1A Legislative task force asks for major changes to Stand your Ground law By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE An indepen dent task force wants major changes, but not an outright repeal, of Floridas stand your ground law after the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. State Sen. Chris Smith, the orga nizer of the group, delivered the rec ommendations to Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders on Monday. Smith said the group which included prosecutors, defense attor neys, police chiefs and law professors could not reach a consensus on whether to get rid of the seven-yearold law that allows a person to meet force with force if they reasonably believe they are in danger of being killed or seriously harmed. The law removed a duty to retreat that previ ously was in the states self-defense law. We took an adult look at stand your ground, Smith said. We had adult discussions, not political, but adult discussions on stand your ground. Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense when he killed Martin earlier this year in Sanford. A spe cial prosecutor, however, charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder following weeks of outcry and protests. Zimmerman has posted bail and is currently in hiding as he awaits trial on the charges. Smith, a critic of the existing law, put together his own task force to look at the law after complaining that Scott was waiting too long to respond to the Martin killing. A separate task force assembled by the governor is scheduled to hold its first meeting in Tallahassee on Tuesday. Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said he would a sponsor in the bill in the Florida Legislature that includes the changes recommended by his group, including one that requires that a grand jury and not a prosecu tor determine whether stand your ground can be used to avoid arrest. Smiths group also called for cre ating a system to track self-defense claims in Florida and to make it clear that the police can detain and ques tion someone even if the person con tends they were acting in self-defense. Smith said the law is now ambiguous on whether police are allowed to detain a suspect. The 21-page report by Smiths group includes recommendations that either had unanimous support, or a supermajority. Smith noted that only a simple majority supported a repeal of the stand your ground law and that he would not waste the time of the GOP-controlled Legislature or public by sponsoring a bill to repeal the law. One recommendation that received a supermajority but not unanimous agreement was that police should be allowed to charge someone if the person killed was unarmed or was in the process of running away. Martin was unarmed when Zimmerman shot him. Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala and a sponsor of the 2005 stand your ground law, said hes not surprised that Smiths group came up with rec ommendations to overhaul the law. Baxley said he wanted the gover nors task force to stay on its mission to look at all of the states self-defense laws. The mission is not to have a kan garoo court and says what wrong with stand your ground, said Baxley, who is a member of the governors task force. The importance of the mission is to review public safety and protection. 3A Let us help your business SHINE!

G oing to the senior prom didnt used to be a budget buster. Oh, some big spenders would pop for an orchid corsage instead of a carnation, but the big event could easily cost both par-ties less than $100 total if her mom made her gown and he wore a nice suit instead of renting a tux. Tickets to the prom, held in a crepe-papered gym with a theme like A Night to Remember, might set you back $20. If you could relate to that at all, then you are old. Very old. Today, according to promgirl.com and prom-night.com, ticket prices can be as high as $200 if the prom is held at a swanky venue. A new gown will cost $100 to $400. Youll want the profes-sional photos, of course ($30 to $125), and to get your hair, makeup and nails done ($30 to $275). Then theres the pre-prom dinner ($25 to $130 per person), boutonniere ($10 to $20), corsage ($25 to $50) and tux rental ($50 to $150). And heaven help you if you forget to book a limo ($200 to $500) for the big night. During the economic downturn, consumers got tight with their money, spend-ing less on what could be considered frills. But that trend doesnt seem to apply to prom. According to Visa, the average family with a teen attending a prom plans to spend $1,078 this year com-pared to $807 in 2011 -a jump of almost 34 percent! Inexplicably, lower-income families -those making less than $50,000 a year -spent more than the average: $1,307. According to Visa, parents say they plan to pay for 61 percent of their childrens prom expenses. When parents are pinched to save money for college or their retirement, theyre spending this kind of money for a school dance? Whats going on here? Visa spokesman Jason Alderman says that many young people are trying to outspend and one-up each other. They see lavish parties and spending on reality TV and want that for themselves. Another explanation could be that parents who have cut back on everything else still want to indulge their children, perhaps for one last time before they go off to college or join the work force. Could these be the same folks who splurged on over-the-top theme birthday parties when their kids were young? Whatever the reason, busting the family budget so that a teen can have an extrava-gant night out sounds crazy. Then again, Americans flocked to the movie theaters in the Great Depression to watch men in tails cavort with bejeweled women in glamor-ous settings. Maybe, in the Great Recession, the prom extrava-ganza offers a bit of the same escape. Moms and dads always live through their children to some degree and on prom night, rich or poor, every-ones living it up. Prom spending may reflect recession dreams ONE OPINION M edia personal-ity Tavis Smiley and Princeton philosophy pro-fessor Cornell West have just published their latest contribution to American poverty propaganda, The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto. The book should have a second subtitle: How to keep the poor poor and blacks enslaved to government. To the extent this book is taken seriously by anyone, the result can only be more, entrenched poverty. Smiley and Wests message is simple. America today consists of a few powerful, rapacious rich people and a lot of unfortunate, exploited poor people. The rich are rich because they are lucky. The poor are poor because they are unlucky. And the only way to solve the problem is activ-ist government to manage the American economy and redis-tribute wealth. Its as if the wealthy belong to a different species of life with no common thread of human-ity linking who they are to those who have less. The idea that haves once might have been have nots -or that that they did something to become haves that todays have nots might consider doing -never enters the equation. Even if Smiley and West conceded that there might be some element of personal responsibility in how ones life turns out, their portrait is of an America now so unfair, that per-sonal responsibility is irrelevant. There is no hope for anyone to rise, according to this book, without government boost-ing them using other peoples money. A good candidate for one of the more outrageous distor-tions, in a book filled with them, is No. 1 on their list of Lies about poverty that America can no longer afford. That No. 1 lie is: Poverty is a character flaw. No way, according to the authors, is there a chance that poverty has anything to do with ones behav-ior. Rather, The 150 million Americans in or near poverty are there as result of unemploy-ment, war, the Great Recession, corporate greed, and income inequality. Given this insight -that there are 150 million poor Americans whose economic condition is the result of extenuating cir-cumstances -it is no wonder that Smiley and West never once mention what many schol-ars see as the major causes of poverty -poor education and family breakdown. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011 unem-ployment for those without a high school diploma was 50 per-cent higher than those with a high school diploma and almost three times higher than those with a college degree. According to the Census Bureau, 17.8 percent of American families with children under 18 lived in poverty in 2010. However, in households with children that had married parents, 8.4 percent lived in pov-erty. In households with chil-dren headed by a single mother, 39.6 percent lived in poverty. The evidence is powerful that getting educated and getting married dramatically reduces the prospects for living in poverty. Yet apparently not sufficiently powerful to interest Smiley and West to note these factors once in their poverty manifesto. Can better government policy expand opportunity for those who actually choose to get educated and live responsible lives? Certainly. But what we need is totally the opposite of what these authors advocate. Evidence abounds that coun-tries with limited government and more economic freedom are far and away the most pros-perous. Despite this books message of the inherent hopeless-ness and unfairness of todays America, the authors them-selves seems to be doing quite well, selling their paperback poverty manifesto at $12 a pop. Apparently its quite good business to tell Americans that America is unfair. Perhaps this book can be used to reduce competition for jobs by immigrants. According to the State Department, there are currently 4.6 million visa applicants wishing to enter the United States under the family and employment pref-erences immigration program. They apparently havent gotten the word that America is no lon-ger a land of opportunity. Keeping the poor poor To the Editor:Tampa Concealed Weapon Ban?? Let me get this straight, if I am in Tampa during GOP convention for a business meeting DOWNTOWN OR IN PLACES DEEMED SOME SURROUNDING AREAS, they want my right to carry to be suspended because they are afraid that hundreds of con-cealed weapon carriers will show up and disrupt the con-vention or shoot someone!! Gimme a break! The left wing is really pushing the envelope on this one. The law was passed to prevent city and local govern-ments from stepping on peoples rights and Governor Scott needs to stand by his legislation and let the laws already on the books take care of the situta-tion. Mayor Buckhorn needs to wake up and smell the roses, legal concealed weapon carriers are not the problem better look out for those idiots out there carrying unlawfully who rob your businesses every day. No lawful concealed carrier is going to show up at the convenetion with a weapon. The unlawful are the ones to lookout for!!

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org T he credibility gap is widening between what the Obama administration says about the jobs picture and what Americans sense is the grim reality. Despite the official line that things are get-ting better, the employment situation is growing progres-sively worse. You would never know this from the headlines. The Labor Department reported Thursday that initial unemployment claims for the previous week had fallen by 1,000. This was the sixth reported decline in the last eight weeks. The over-all impression is that the situ-ation is improving, slowly but surely. Over that same period, however, the actual number of new jobless per week has increased by almost 40,000. The Obama administration is managing perceptions by revising the weekly numbers upward after the fact. Every week for at least the last eight weeks, the initial jobless number has been raised after it was released, some-times significantly. So while the combined initial figures over that period show a 13,000 new jobless decline, this is only because 49,000 jobless were not included in the initial reports. Revising upward after the fact allows the White House to generate favorable headlines even as joblessness increases. By shifting the previous weeks total above the new jobless number, it appears that claims are falling when they actually are increasing. The 1,000-claim drop in the most recent report was only possible because the previous number was raised by 3,000. A week to week com-parison shows a 2,000-claim increase, but this is the kind of bad news the Obama adminis-tration would rather not have reported. By rigging the num-bers, they can say to the press that everything is trending in the right direction when in fact it is not.

Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. Chris Paul hit a pair of free throws with 23.7 seconds left, and the Los Angeles Clippers rallied from 27 down to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-98 Sunday night in the opening game of the Western Conference series. The Clippers tied the NBA playoff record for largest deficit overcome at the end of three quarters, when they trailed by 21. Rudy Gay missed a 15-footer with 0.9 seconds left after the Grizzlies squan dered a lead they held for the first 47 minutes. The Clippers lost Caron Butler to a broken left hand. But Nick Young scored 19 points off the bench, includ ing three 3-pointers in the midst of the Clippers 26-1 run. Paul finished with 14 points while playing a teamhigh 38 minutes despite a groin injury. Blake Griffin had 17 and Butler 12 before leaving the game. Gay finished with 19 for Memphis. Mike Conley and O.J. Mayo had 17, and Marc Gasol scored 14. Lakers 103, Nuggets 88 LOS ANGELES Kobe Bryant scored 31 points, Andrew Bynum posted the Lakers first playoff tripledouble in 21 years with an NBA postseason recordtying 10 blocked shots, and Los Angeles thoroughly controlled the tempo in a playoff-opening victory over Denver. Bynum, the Lakers AllStar center coming off his best regular season, also had 10 points and 13 rebounds while incredibly blocking 11 percent of the Nuggets 90 shots. Bynum had the Lakers first playoff triple-double since Magic Johnson in the 1991 NBA finals. Fellow 7-footer Pau Gasol added 13 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points for the Nuggets. Hawks 83, Celtics 74 ATLANTA Josh Smith scored 22 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, lead ing Atlanta over Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs, the final minute turning ugly when Celtics star Rajon Rondo was ejected for bumping an official. The Hawks, who led by as many as 19 in the first half, were clinging to a fourpoint lead when Rondo lost his cool with 41 seconds remaining. Rondo scored 20 points and dished out 11 assists, but none of it mattered when he lost his cool. Kevin Garnett bounced back from a miserable start to put up 20 points and 11 rebounds. Smith carried the Hawks on a night when Joe Johnson managed just 11 points on 3-of-15 shooting. Spurs 106, Jazz 91 SAN ANTONIO Tony Parker scored 28 points and San Antonio beat Utah to win its playoff opener for the first time in four years. Tim Duncan added 17 points and 11 rebounds, helping the Spurs dodge another early playoff let down. Despite boasting the No. 1 seed again, San Antonio hadnt won a Game 1 in its last six postseason series including the one that began a shocking first-round ouster last year. Paul Millsap led Utah with 20 points. The Jazz hung close until the third, when the NBAs top 3-point shooting team began bury ing Utah with three in a two-minute burst to finish the quarter. The Spurs have won 11 in a row.

DEAR ABBY: May I comment on the let-ter from Working the Window in Georgia (Jan. 22), the drive-through worker who said people should have their orders ready when they pull up to the speaker? Many drive-through restaurants place their speakers in FRONT of the first menu you see. Unless you frequent the restaurant, its impossible to know what you want until you reach the menu. Also, if corporate is timing their employees, then maybe they should dispense with having the employees greet custom-ers with a long list of item suggestions before taking the order. Those of us at the other end of the speaker often cannot understand a word being said, either because the speaker isnt working properly, the order-taker has a thick accent, or the person is speaking too fast. -PEGGY IN THORNTON, COLO. DEAR PEGGY: My readers agree with you 100 per-cent! Their biggest beef is the order menu being located only at the order window/speaker. Fast-food corporate America, please take notice. Read on: DEAR ABBY: How are we supposed to have any idea of what to order when we dont see the menu until we pull up to the window? This is especially true when I try a new res-taurant. If restaurants post anything before that, it is usually just a list of their most expensive combo meals. Here are some suggestions for people working the windows: 1. I may not know your menu. So please give me a chance to look it over. If you dont want new custom-ers to know what you offer, then Ill be happy to take my business elsewhere. 2. I know you are reading from a script, but if I dont want a combo meal, please do not ask me repeatedly if I want one. 3. Give me a chance to check my order when you hand it to me. I am really tired of getting to my des-tination only to find out my order is wrong. 4. Do not argue with me if I want to verify that my drink is a diet drink. I am diabetic and a non-diet soda could make me very sick. 5. Please understand that even if I dont have the radio on and there is no background noise, I may still have trouble understanding you. Perhaps the speakers are bad or I am slightly hearing-impaired. 6. Please give me a straw if I order a drink. I have worked fast food before, and I know from experience it is not an easy job. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I attended his nephews out-of-state wed-ding. A few weeks before, I had shipped a beautiful, expensive set of porcelain dishes from a high-end designer store. The neph-ew commented, Those dishes dont go with any-thing we have. Should we request they be returned or ignore their lack of appreciation? -APPALLED AUNT IN ARIZONA DEAR APPALLED: Your nephews comment was extremely rude. If he and his bride werent regis-tered, and their preference of a china pattern wasnt clearly stated, you did the best you could under the circumstances and were generous. Most high-end stores have websites that display their inventory. Rather than ask for the gift back (which would be equally rude), suggest he and his Mrs. go online and exchange the dishes for a pattern of their choice. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Make personal changes that better suit your current situation. A conservative approach to business will help you secure your position. Put pressure on someone who could potentially ruin your plans if a contribution isnt made on time. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Mix business with pleasure. Showing your playful side will help build better relationships and ensure that you get the help you require when you need it. Orchestrate a face-to-face conversation if an important deal begins to teeter. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Emotions will be dif-ficult to control, posing a personal problem. Listen to complaints and observe the situation before taking steps to rectify the prob-lem. You arent likely to get more than one chance, making your timing and choices crucial. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do your best to fol-low through with your plans. Dont allow anyone to make you feel self-con-scious about your capa-bilities. Rely on experience and the information you have gathered, and you will reach your destination. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont complain about your job or someone will think you arent right for the position. You have to protect what youve got, not throw it all away. Hard work, dedication and show-ing interest will all contrib-ute to a successful future. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Youve got all the right moves, so dont hesitate to follow through with your plans. A lack of confidence is the only thing stand-ing in your way. Share your thoughts and you will realize that you have something worthwhile to present. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Personal changes will be easier than anticipated if you sign up for a self-help course. Love is on the rise, and talking about your plans with your cur-rent partner or taking part in activities conducive to meeting someone new will pay off. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Concentrate on money matters and professional gains. Letting emotions get in the way of your advance-ment will lead to regrets in the future. You may have to work with someone you dont trust in order to get what you want. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Dont start some-thing you cannot finish. A problem with relatives or friends will occur if you are too aggressive. Keeping an open mind and letting others voice an opinion will make it easier to get others to accept your ideas. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You can wheel and deal all you want. Someone is likely to make last-minute changes that will upset your plans. Spend more time securing your position by work-ing on projects that dont require the help of others. Success will be your pay-back. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Youll have to put up with interference. Listen to whats being sug-gested and combine it with what you feel works for you. At the end of the day, accomplishing what you set out to do will be the bottom line. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont let anger lead to a mistake youll regret. Do what you can to reach your goals without being sidetracked by what others want you to do. Someone from your past will offer you an opportunity you cannot refuse. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
