Mershons father, Mike (not pictured), said that the water fountain is his favorite toy.New poll finds U.S. effort viewed as harmful.By ANNE GEARANAP National Security WriterWASHINGTON Support for the war in Afghanistan has reached a new low, with only 27 percent of Americans saying they back the effort and about half of those who oppose the war saying the continued presence of American troops in Afghanistan is doing more harm than good, according to an AP-GfK poll. In results released Wednesday, 66 percent opposed the war, with 40 percent saying they were strongly opposed. A year ago, 37 percent favored the war, and in the spring of 2010, support was at 46 percent. Eight percent strongly supported the war in the new poll. The poll found that far fewer people than last year think the killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. troops increased the threat of terrorism against Americans. Overall, 27 percent say the al-Qaida leaders death resulted in an increased terror threat, 31 percent believe his death decreased the threat of terrorism and 38 percent say it has had no effect. The poll was conducted before the revelation this week of a recent al-Qaida plot to blow up a U.S.-bound airliner with an underwear bomb. Chris Solomon, an independent from FuquayVarina, N.C., is among the respondents who strongly oppose the war. He said the military mission has reached the limits of its ability to help Afghans or make Americans any safer, and he would close down the war immediately if he could. While the rationale for the war is to fight al-Qaida, most of the day-to-day combat is against an entrenched Taliban insurgency that will outlast the foreign fighters, he said. POLL continued on 3A Water advisors namedFrom staff reportsLIVE OAKTwelve representatives were named today to the North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnerships stakeholder committee, an advisory body that will share viewpoints of stakeholder groups with the St. Johns River and Suwannee River water management districts and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to help address the regions water supply issues. Chosen to represent the groups, organizations and entities that have an interest in the regions water supply, committee members are: Public water supply: Ray O. Avery, Clay County Utility Authority; David Clanton, City of Lake City Utilities Commercial and power generation: Athena T. Mann, JEA; James Cornett, Cornetts Spirit of the Suwannee Inc. Industrial and mining: J. Michael OBerry, Vulcan Materials Co.; Stan Posey, PCS Phosphate Agriculture: Kerry Kates, Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association; Thomas Harper, Harper Farms Environmental: Patrick T. Welsh, University of North Florida and Save Our Lakes; Jacqui Sulek, Audubon Florida Local government: Keystone Heights Mayor Mary Lou Hildreth; Dixie County Commissioner Gene Higginbotham The St. Johns District received 18 applications, and the Suwannee District received 24. We are pleased with the broad interest in the partnership, said Charlie Houder, Suwannee River District acting executive director. The committee represents a wide range of expertise that will serve as a valuable asset to assist the districts and DEP in the development of sustainable water supplies. One of DEPs top priorities is getting Floridas water right. The joint Regional Water Supply Planning process is an important step toward ensuring an adequate water supply for North Florida, said Ann B. Shortelle, DEP Water Policy Director. I want to thank the members of the stakeholder committee for volunteering to bring ideas to the table that can help meet our states future water needs and protect our valuable water resources. The committee is structured such that a wide range of public interests are included, while keeping the committee small enough to be effective and productive. Stakeholder committee representatives will closely coordinate with the constituencies they represent, as well as being responsive to the interested public, says Hans G. Tanzler III, St. Johns District executive director. Our goal is that the process be open and inclusive. Committee meetings will be open to the public, so stakeholders beyond the committee membership can attend and participate. Additional information for each member is available on the partnerships website, northfloridawater.com. The website also provides information about relevant activities of the districts, related initiatives and past and upcoming meetings.

We hope to make this an annual event each year and then maybe through other corporate spon sors and community partners, hopefully we wont have to use it as a fundraiser, but just as a means to bring the commu nity together.By HOPE YENAssociated PressWASHINGTON The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service sought Wednesday to tamp down concern over wide-scale cuts, revealing it will seek to keep thousands of rural post offices open with shorter hours. At a news briefing, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the mail agency was backing off its plan to close up to 3,700 low-revenue post offices sometime after May 15. Citing strong community opposition, Donahoe said the agency will now whittle down fulltime staff but maintain a part-time post office presence in rural areas, with access to retail lobbies and post office boxes. Under the emerging strategy, no post office would be closed. But more than 13,000 rural mail facilities could see reduced operations of between two and six hours. The Postal Service intends to seek regulatory approval and get community input, a process that could take several months. The new strategy would then be implemented over two years and completed in September 2014, saving an estimated half billion dollars annually.

Hudson, who attended every day of testimony in her former brotherin-laws murder trial, bent forward, her head on her knee, and sobbed as prosecutor Jennifer Bagby described what she called the execution of Hudsons mother, brother and 7year-old nephew in October 2008. The boys mother, Hudsons sister Julia Hudson, fiddled nervously with a piece of string as Bagby described how her ex-husband allegedly shot her son Jason King, whom she called Juice Box, through the head. William Balfour left that innocent child to die in his own pool of blood, covered by an old shower curtain, Bagby told jurors, with many of them taking notes Balfour, dressed in a white dress shirt and striped tie, sat impassively at the defense table, as he had for most of the two-week trial. His attor neys, who took all of 30 minutes to begin and rest their case Tuesday, were slated to give their closing arguments later Wednesday, after which the jury will deliberate.

Judge rules in favor of Village People singer LOS ANGELES A judge in Los Angeles says the original lead singer of the Village People can reclaim at least partial ownership of the copy rights to more than two dozen of the groups songs, including Y.M.C.A., Macho Man, and In the Navy. U.S. District Judge Barry T. Moskowitz on Monday rejected a lawsuit by two music publishers who argued Victor Willis had no right to regain ownership of 33 songs he cowrote for the group under contract.

Swan eggs stolen from Fla. parks LAKELAND City officials want to know who is stealing swan eggs from Lakeland park sThe Ledger of Lakeland reports that city workers who feed and monitor the swans first noticed eggs missing from Lake Morton and Lake Mirror last week. Director of Parks and Recreation Bob Donahay says the swans were moved to Lake Morton so officials could keep tabs on the eggs. He says up to 20 eggs are missing. Donahay says the eggs worth up to $150 each were about to hatch. The newspaper reports that Lakeland officials often find a broken swan egg or two around the parks. But this time they dont believe the eggs fell victim to vandalism. Instead, Donahay believes the thief took the eggs to hatch and sell. Boy killed when SUV hits bike BRONSON The Florida Highway Patrol says a 12-year-old north Florida boy died after being hit by a car while riding his bicycle. Troopers announced Tuesday that the boy had died following the Sunday afternoon crash in Bronson. FHP says Keanu Becker was not wearing a helmet when he was thrown from his bike after being struck by a Honda SUV driven by 20year-old Elizabeth Tyler. The Gainesville Sun reports Tyler told troop ers she had passed two other people on bikes and the glare from the setting sun was in her eyes when she hit the boy. Troopers say the boy was taken to Shands at the University of Florida, where he later died. Bear travels through Orlando ORLANDO A 250pound black bear is back in the wild after trekking through metro Orlando last weekend. Wildlife officials say that the young male black bear trekked through metro Orlando for more than a day and a half before wandering into downtown last Sunday afternoon. There, wildlife officers tranquilized the bear just two blocks from the Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic. The bear was then relocated several hours later to the Ocala National Forest. The bear was first spot ted by Orlando residents Friday night.

City candidates qualify for electionBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comCandidates running for two Lake City city council seats qualified Monday by collecting petition signatures, while Mayor Stephen M. Witt will instead pay a fee to run for another term. Incumbent Jake Hill Jr. qualified for city council district 12 by collecting petitions from 5 percent of the registered voters in the district, which is 94 petitions based on the last city election. Zaccheus A. Paulk, running against Hill, also qualified with 94 petitions. Incumbent Melinda Moses and Ricky Jernigan qualified for city council district 13 by collecting petitions from 5 percent of the districts voters, which is 122 petitions. Council candidates could have qualified by paying $1,065.85, or 6 percent of the positions salary. Mayor Stephen M. Witt is running for reelection unopposed thus far, but did not qualify by collecting petitions. Witt would have needed 341 petitions, which is 5 percent of the registered voters in the city. Instead he must pay a qualifying fee of $1,199.10, which is 6 percent of the $19,985.06 annual salary. City Clerk Audrey E. Sikes serves as the qualifying officer for city candidates, while the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections qualifies candidates seeking county or district positions. City and county candidates have until June 8 to pay a fee instead of qualifying by petition. Temporary tax shortfall puts district in bindBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County School Board approved a Tax Anticipation Note Tuesday night, which allows the district to borrow money to meet operating costs while the district waits to receive payments from property taxes. The district will borrow about $1.6 million from First Federal Bank of Florida for about 37 days, costing the district about $18,000, said Mary Loughran, district director of finance. Taxpayers are now using installment plans for property taxes that have changed the cash flow pattern for the district, she said. The districts budget is on target, but summer checks for employees in May are a significant amount of money and final payment of the districts portion of taxes is not received until midJune. The district has never used a Tax Anticipation Note before, but it is common practice for larger districts and smaller ones, including Suwannee County. Loughran said the loan is to ensure financial obligations are met and district officials have been monitoring the cash flow situation closely. Board member Charles Maxwell said its costing taxpayers a lot of money, but agreed to the note because it is an emergency. Board chairman Steve Nelson said borrowing the money was not a small thing as $18,000 is someones salary, but wanted cash flow problems to be an item on the next budget workshop. Board member Linard Johnson said the loan was the cost of doing big business and the district didnt want to write a check that it couldnt cover. Family Fun Night to be held at RichardsonFrom staff reportsWith activities and fun for the community, Richardson Middle School is welcoming incoming sixth-graders today at its annual Family Fun Night from 6 to 8 p.m. The entire community in invited to a free dinner at 6 p.m., said Bessie Whitfield, principal. Visitors can also meet the schools faculty and staff and see performances by the chorus and band at 7 p.m. All grades levels will find something fun at the event, like bounces houses, door prizes, project displays and a book fair. Plants grown in the schools new greenhouse will also be on sale, she said. New and current students can find out about the schools activities and athletic programs, Whitfield said. Its a good time to preview our school, she said. Richardson Middle is located at 646 SE. Pennsylvania Street. What are we really doing there? Who are we helping? he said in an interview. Yet nearly half, 48 percent, said the continued presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan is doing more to help Afghanistan become a stable democracy, while 36 percent said the opposite and 14 percent said they didnt know. Among those opposed to the war, 49 percent say U.S. troops are hurting more than helping. Three-quarters of those who favor the war think they are doing more to help. Republicans are most apt to see U.S. forces as helping, with 56 percent saying so, followed by 47 percent of Democrats. Among independents, more say troops are hurting Afghanistans efforts to become a stable democracy (43 percent) than helping (32 percent). President Barack Obama has promised to keep fighting forces in Afghanistan until the end of 2014, despite the declining popular support. The effort to hand off primary responsibility for fighting the war to Afghan soldiers will be the main focus of a gathering of NATO leaders that Obama will host later this month in Chicago. That shift away from frontline combat is expected to come next year, largely in response to growing opposition to the war in the United States and among NATO allies fighting alongside about 88,000 U.S. forces. The shift makes some military commanders uneasy, as does any suggestion that the U.S. fighting force be cut rapidly next year. Obama has promised a steady drawdown. Obama acknowledged the rising frustration during a surprise visit to Afghanistan last week. He signed a 10-year security pact with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and congratulated U.S. troops on the anniversary of bin Ladens death. He told troops that he is ending the war but that more of their friends will die before it is over. I recognize that many Americans are tired of war, he said then. I will not keep Americans in harms way a single day longer than is absolutely required for our national security. But we must finish the job we started in Afghanistan and end this war responsibly. As of Tuesday, at least 1,834 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S.-led invasion in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count. Obama has argued that his persistence in hunting down bin Laden is one reason to re-elect him, and his on-time handling of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is another. Obama closed down the Iraq war on the timetable set when he took office and expanded the Afghan fight that had been neglected in favor of Iraq. He is now scaling back in Afghanistan, bringing troops home by the tens of thousands. Weve listened to our customers in rural America and weve heard them loud and clear they want to keep their post office open, Donahoe said. We believe todays announcement will serve our customers needs and allow us to achieve real savings to help the Postal Service return to long-term financial stability. Under the new plan, communities would be given the option of keeping their area post offices open but at reduced hours. Another option would be to close a postal office in one area while keeping a nearby one open full-time. Communities also could opt for alternatives including creating a Village Post Office in which postal services are offered in libraries, government offices or local stores such as a Wal-Mart, Walgreens or Office Depot. At the end of the day, we will not close rural post offices until we receive community input, said Megan Brennan, the Postal Services chief operating officer. We believe very few post offices will be closed over the next few years. The latest move comes as the Postal Service is making a broad push for Congress to pass legislation this summer that would allow the agency to move forward on its multi-billion dollar costcutting plan, which include an end to Saturday mail delivery. High concern in rural communities over proposed cuts has been a principal barrier to the cost-cutting OPEN: Postal Service revises plans to keep rural mail office buildings goingContinued From Page 1A

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com Q Denver Post OPINION Thursday, May 10, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A T ampa, Fla., wants to cancel the rights of concealed-carry permit holders in the vicinity of the upcoming Republican National Convention. Commuter-train passengers in Chicago will be subjected to frisking and air-port-style X-ray scanning during next weeks NATO summit. The Obama administration is asking for warrantless access to cell-phone location records. The common thread in these recent headlines is the notion that government can do no wrong when it comes to making people feel safe. Its an illusion. Instead of enhanced safety, were seeing the destruction of the fundamental values based on the liberty of the individual that once made America stand apart from the rest of the world. In the 1980s, the phrase Papers, please was the sort of thing heard only when watching a spy movie set in a totalitarian state such as East Germany. Now we have a Supreme Court that rules the Fourth Amendments protection against suspicionless search and seizure of individuals must be set aside so police can set up Soviet-style roadblocks to verify that a persons driving papers are in order. This is supposedly for safety. About a dozen states ban such checkpoints, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations accident data-base shows theyre just as safe as states where checkpoints are widespread. Alaska and Idaho dont allow roadblocks, yet they are enjoy-ing a greater reduction in road fatalities than the national aver-age. Todays privacy invasions arent about producing tangible results. In February, President Obama signed the Federal Aviation Administration reau-thorization bill into law, which includes a provision promoting the widespread use of military-style surveillance drones on U.S. soil. The Department of Homeland Security already has been handing out taxpayer money like candy for the pur-chase of these high-tech spy machines. Last month, Hawaiis transportation department admitted it wasted $75,000 in federal funds on an unmanned aerial vehicle that it is unable to use. The Gadsden, Ala., police department used the federal checkbook to purchase two drones in 2010. They, too, are locked away and have never flown. If we dont have a specif-ic need for this tool, why break it out of the box? Gadsden Police Chief John Crane said to the Gadsden Times last month. As long as the pricey surveillance devices are being bought with other peoples money, local officials arent going to worry about whether they ful-fill an actual need or not. They function like a childs security blanket, enabling politicians and bureaucrats to issue press releases claiming they are doing something against ter-rorism and crime that all may now feel secure. Theres more than a monetary price to be paid for indulg-ing in this safety placebo. The more these tools find their way into more bureaucratic tool-boxes around the country, the more likely it is they will not be used against terrorists and drug dealers but will be misused for getting back at ex-wives and political enemies. What other government program has been free of waste, fraud and abuse? Its not too late to recover the privacy rights that have been fading over the past few decades. Small-government con-servatives and the liberals who still believe in civil liberties can unite in opposition to the worst abuses. All it takes is the will to say enough is enough.Q The Washington Times W hen it comes to same-sex mar-riage, President Obama is a commitment-phobe. He keeps putting his political partners off by saying his position is evolving. He should just come out and take the plunge. Adopting an evolving position is a classic political dodge, allowing Mr. Obama to claim to be sympathetic to the concerns of homosexual activists while not offending traditionalists. His stance is calculated to grab centrists whose votes he needs in November. It gives him wiggle room with leftists who are curious why he wont be more explicit. But when Mr. Obama says he is evolving, he does so with a wink. His liberal sup-porters know where he really stands. Its in his genes. Politicians cant hide the truth forever. This week, Vice President Joe Biden said he is absolutely comfortable with the idea of same-sex marriage, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan also voiced his support. The White House, however, wants to avoid taking a firm position in an election year. The situation in North Carolina illustrates the Obama campaigns dilemma. Mr. Obama needs to win the Tar Heel State to retain control of the White House. Its so important to Democratic strategy that it was chosen as the site for the partys national convention. Same-sex marriage is against state law, and a state constitutional amendment banning the practice passed by a landslide in Tuesdays vote. This is why Mr. Obama would rather skirt the issue in the swing states, but the current controversy is dragging it out of the closet. The expression evolving position is traditionally used to soften the blow when a politician is flip-flopping, but it raises questions the president needs to answer. If Mr. Obama is evolving, where did he start? Where is he now? Where is he going? When did he first realize he was evolving? Has he taken any actions based on his chang-ing preferences? When will he come out with his fully evolved position? Is he exploring his options? On Monday, political adviser David Axelrod said there was no daylight between Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama. He shakily asserted that the president believes that couples, heterosexual couples gay couples should should have have the same legal rights. Yet when asked for an official statement, a flustered White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded, I think when people have asked him that and he has no update to give them or no change in his views to put forward that hes simply saying that, I have nothing new for you on that; his position is what it was. And thats and thats with regards to his personal views his views are crystal clear. Even the usually unflappable White House press corps had to laugh at Mr. Carneys stam-mering. Mr. Obama is clearly in a public state of denial. Everyone knows where he really comes down on the issue. He should just man-up and admit it.Q The Washington Times I t wasnt just the Obama administration that expressed doubts about the original Keystone XL pipeline proposal, which would transport heavy crude oil from Canadian tar sands to refineries along the Gulf of Mexico and has become a bone of contention in the presidential race. The state of Nebraska last year told TransCanada that its proposed route through that state needed adjustment, too. Now TransCanada has returned with a revised plan that skirts the environmentally sensitive Sand Hills region, adding about 100 miles to the route, and avoids areas where groundwater in the Ogallala aquifer is less than 5 feet from the surface. The case for the pipeline has always been compelling if envi-ronmental concerns could be satisfied, and now that case is even stronger. If the president is re-elected this fall, its hard to see how his administration could be justified in again find-ing grounds to deny a permit for the project. Protagonists on both sides of the Keystone debate have not exactly covered themselves in glory in the past few months. Although concerns regarding the Sand Hills are understand-able, many in the environmen-tal community are intent on killing the pipeline no matter what route is chosen. Meanwhile, those Gulf refineries will still import crude oil, only from the Middle East. Surely it makes more sense for them to depend on Canada rather than oppressive and often volatile regimes halfway around the world. Republicans, who have the better arguments on the merits of the pipeline, have unfortu-nately exaggerated the likely number of jobs it would create and even portrayed it as essen-tial to economic recovery. Sorry, but Keystone is not a silver bullet for our sluggish economy. It should be support-ed, yes, because its benefits appear to outweigh its possible costs. But a few thousand con-struction jobs do not a recov-ery make.Time toreconsiderKeystone?Bumblingterroristtaken out Q St. Louis Post-Dispatch Obama should get off fence,take a stand on key issuesPrivacy evasions in support ofsecurity becoming commonI n the beginning of Americas war on ter-rorism was a Yemeni jihadist named Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al Quso, who was to al-Qaida what Fredo was to the Corleone family. He played a bumbling role in the October 2000 attack on the guided missile destroyer U.S.S. Cole. But there was no doubt he was in on the planning and he was indicted in absentia by a federal grand jury in New York on 50 counts of terrorism activity. In 2001, the CIA was still doing things the law enforce-ment way, with electronic and human intelligence, arrests and prosecutions by local authori-ties. Mr. Qusos career as a terrorist lasted long enough for that to change. On Sunday, in its fourth attempt, the United States killed Fahd al Quso with a mis-sile fired by a drone aircraft. The Yemeni government, which had authorized the strike, confirmed his death along with those of two other al-Qaida members. According to the Long War Journal, an online public jour-nalism project, since 2006 the United States has launched more than 300 air attacks either by drone, manned air-craft or missiles in Pakistan and Yemen. As many as 2,800 people have been killed, 90 per-cent of whom were identified by local authorities as militants or terrorists. When the target is a group of individuals believed to be enemy combatants, the strike is called a signature strike. When the target is a specific individual, its called a person-ality strike. Mr. Quso died in a personality strike. Whatever his abilities as a terrorist, he was a reminder to the CIA of a ter-rible mistake it had made in early 2001. The mistake stemmed from the attack on the Cole. It was actually the second time al-Qaida terrorists had targeted a warship in Aden harbor. The first attack, in January 2000 against the U.S.S. The Sullivans, had failed. The boat that Mr. Quso had purchased for the attack had sunk. Salvaged and repaired, the boat was readied for the Oct. 12 attack against the Cole. As his colleagues raced across Aden harbor in the fiberglass boat with a 700-pound shaped charge in its bow, Mr. Quso had better duty: He was assigned to videotape the attack from an apartment over-looking the Yemeni port. He overslept. As he was hurrying to his video perch, he was rocked by the tremendous explosion that killed his col-leagues and 17 U.S. sailors. Yemini authorities arrested him two weeks later. In early 2001, Yemens Political Security Organization finally allowed the FBI to question Mr. Quso about the Cole bombing. Still, he sang like a canary when he was questioned, with non-enhanced techniques, by a brilliant Arabic-speaking FBI interrogator named Ali Soufan. He claimed to have been part of the failed underwear bombing plot in 2009. On Monday, the day after Mr. Qusos death, U.S. authorities said that theyd foiled a second underwear bomb plot, also originating from al-Qaidas Yemeni franchise, this one using a more sophisticated bomb. There have been no reports linking Mr. Quso to this second device. But as a nasty failure, it bears his fingerprints. (St. Louis Post Dispatch) ANOTHER VIEW

BY SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Its one of the leading causes of death for cats, but there is no cure and no known cause: kidney disease. One in 12 older cats has chronic kidney disease, according to Banfield Pet Hospitals just-released 2012 State of Pet Health Report. Banfield, the largest veterinary practice in the world with 800 hospitals in 43 states, based its report on medical data from more than 2 million dogs and nearly 430,000 cats seen by its veterinarians. Acute kidney disease, caused by eating antifreeze, grapes, lilies or other poisons, can be cured if treated quickly enough. If you catch it, you can treat it, said Dr. Nina Nardi, chief of staff at Banfields Canoga Park hospital, 25 miles northwest of Los Angeles. But chronic kidney disease is much more common, more progressive and irreversible, she said. Treatment is aimed at easing pain and prolonging a quality life. Cats diagnosed in the early stages of chronic kidney disease live two to three years, while those diag nosed in later stages live only a few months. (Dogs can get kidney disease, but it is seven times more common in cats.) Nate Glass can only try to ease the pain of his cat Girly, who he rescued as a kitten after shed been shot with a BB gun in an alley behind a dollar store. Nardi, Girlys vet for the past five years, tested her for kidney disease because she lost three pounds between exams. It shocked me, Glass said. I didnt think she was three pounds lighter. She still looked as fluffy as she ever did. Cats are notorious for hiding their health problems. Possible signs of chronic kidney disease include increased thirst, increased urination, decreased appetite, weight loss, vomiting and bad breath.

An Air Force dentist pulls teeth in the oil-stained garage where the towns fire truck normally parks. A reservist in camouflage dispenses free medicine in the police department lobby. The doctoring Wednesday was part of a military program to provide free health care in poor areas of the South and whose latest mission came to one of Alabamas most impoverished regions, where the teams have treated more than 12,000 people in less than two weeks. The work helps fill a gap in an area with few doctors and a multitude of medical problems, many of them linked to the obesity that is rampant in the state. All day, people with high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, rotting teeth and failing eyes wait to see doctors, nurses and other uniformed health professionals from the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve and Navy Reserve at Hayneville City Hall, which has been temporarily converted into a health clinic for the program. Similar clinics set up in Demopolis and Selma have treated thousands more since opening May 1; the temporary program ends Thursday. Leaving with an update on her blood pressure problems and a bag full of pills, Mamie Brenson, 45, of Selma was thankful for a rare chance to see a doctor. I really love this, she said. Im happy for it, yall. Now in its third year in Alabama, the Pentagons Innovative Readiness Training program is administered in parts of the South by the Delta Regional Authority, a federal-state partnership that promotes economic development in parts of eight Southern states. The authority has brought similar health projects to Arkansas and Mississippi. Aside from the South, troops have provided health care and other services including dog inoculations and sewer repairs from Hawaii to Alaska. In return for the care, the troops get the occasional donated meal or a hug from patients, plus valuable training. Their work is part of a program that sends guard members and reservists into some of Americas poorest communities, where they learn to set up health clinics and other projects and deal with large numbers of people, just as they might do after a natural disaster or in a foreign county. Jim Byard, director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, said calling in the military isnt the long-term solution to improving health care in Alabamas Black Belt, an impoverished, aging region named for its dark soil and beset by poor nutrition and high obesity rates. But it is a Band-Aid thats helping, said Byard. As he spoke, a reservist checked a womans blood pressure in the municipal courtroom. With bad eyesight and a plus-size waistline that puts him at risk for high blood pressure, Ricky Brothers of the rural Davenport community normally must drive 30 minutes or more to see a doctor in Montgomery. But distance is only one of the roadblocks to regular health checks for people living in the Black Belt. Medicaid has been cut off for a lot of us, we dont have jobs, dont have any money to fund as far as doctors at all, Brothers said as he waited to have his eyes checked in a clinic set up in the towns conference room. Industries are scarce and unemployment exceeds 12 percent in most of west Alabama, and Mayor Helenor Bell said improving the areas overall health is an important step toward pulling the old plantation region out of generations of poverty. If youre always sick you cant work, you cant learn, said Bell. Hayneville, located about 25 miles southwest of the Capitol in Montgomery, has about 930 residents, 85 percent of whom are black. Census figures show about 35 percent of its residents live below federal poverty levels, and more than half of the towns families get by on total incomes of $25,000 or less annually. The commander of the medical program, Air Force Col. Jerry Arends, said obesity is the overwhelming health problem encountered by troops seeing patients at City Hall. The cause of the fatness epidemic isnt hard to see the towns gas station is also its main lunch stop, with a menu of pizza, fried foods and honey buns. It contributes to the overwhelming numbers we run into here or in any other of our missions, he said. We had a mission about a month and a half ago in Hawaii, the highland of Kauai, and we really dealt with the same public health issues. About 55 medical personnel are treating patients at Hayneville. In all, about 250 troops are in the state through the program. Aside from general health care screening and nutrition counseling, military doctors are fitting patients for eyeglasses and pulling teeth by the dozens. Dental hygiene and care is almost nonexistent in some households, and Air Force dentist Tina Stoner of Quincy, Ill., only took a few minutes to extract four teeth from a middle-aged woman seated in a portable chair in the fire truck bay. There just wasnt anything holding them in, said Stoner.ASSOCIATED PRESSNavy dental assistant Shenetria Harris treats an unidentified patient at a military clinic set up at Haynesville, Ala., in this recent photo.

Military stop brings health care to rural Alabama Kidney disease is one of the leading killers in cats BY MIKE STOBBEAssociated PressATLANTA More teen girls now use the best kinds of birth control, a new government study says. About 60 percent of teen girls who have sex use the most effective kinds of contraception, including the pill and patch. Thats up from the mid90s, when less than half were using the best kinds, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study found. The trend in better contraception is helping to drive down the teen birth rate, health officials said. The CDC released the report Thursday. Its based on a national survey of 2,300 girls ages 15 to 19, conducted in the years 2006 through 2010. The most effective forms of birth control include the pill, patch, vaginal ring, IUD, the Implanon arm implant and the Depo-Provera contraceptive shot. Using only condoms was deemed just moderately effective. Why are more teen girls now using hormonal birth control like the pill? Doctors seem to be increasingly comfortable prescribing them to teens, said Crystal Tyler, a CDC epidemiologist who coauthored the new report. Also, some of them like the vaginal ring CDC report: More teen girls are using best birth controlCDC continued on 8A CATS continued on 8A Cats diagnosed in the early stages of chronic kidney disease live two to three years, while those diagnosed in later stages live only a few months.
Dear Pharmacist, Recently, you wrote about the medicinal action of herbal teas, and got my attention. I have serious health concerns like diabetes, hypertension, pancreatitis and insomnia. --J.Y., Gainesville, Florida Answer: As far as tea goes, chamomile is perfect. Ive emailed you a free copy of my ebook Understanding Pancreatitis & Pancreatic Cancer. Researchers report that drinking chamomile tea daily helps prevent complications of diabetes, such as loss of vision, nerve damage, and kidney damage. This speaks to the ability of chamomile to sqaush free radical damage in the body, which is excellent. This is exactly what you want to do if you have pancreatitis too! After reading a study about chamomiles benefits to those with diabetes, I theorized that it must have other benefits for the pancreas. Lo and behold, I found numerous studies discussing apigenin and its ability to inhibits growth of pancreatic cancer cells through vari ous mechanisms. Apigenin is a citrus bioflavonoid compound found in chamomile (and other fruits/vegetables including grapefruit) that gives it a yellow color, and as well as that familiar sedative effect. And apigenin appears to inhibit pancreatic cancer! Apigenin, found in chamomile suppresses pancre atic cancer growth through suppression of cyclin B-associated cdc2 activity and G2/M arrest, according to the study published in Molecular Cancer December 2006. The researchers conclude that apigenin may be a valuable drug for the treatment or prevention of pancreatic cancer. A few years later, in Pancreas (May 2009), scientists published findings about apigenin again, this time to conclude that it improved the action of gemcitabine, a drug used to treat pancreatic cancer. Their results found that (apigenin in combination with gemcitabine) inhibited pancreatic cancer cell growth more than either agent alone! It was dose-dependent too, the more apigenin, the better the effect. Apigenin was shown in a 2008 study in the journal, Pancreas, to decreases glucose uptake in pancreatic cells (you might say it starved them to death). Its what we call a flavonoid, and it happens to be a strong antiinflammatory. Other studies have found this compound to possess ability in inhibiting several cancer lines, including breast, colon, thyroid, skin and leukemia. To spare confusion, apigenin is a compound found in chamomile, its not a drug. You can get apigenin by purchasing it as a stand-alone supplement called apigenin online or at a health food store. Another way is to drink chamomile, or take dietary supplements of chamomile. There are very few warnings associated with the lovely centuries-old flower, but being a natural sedative, chamomile could enhance the effect of prescribed tranquilizers, anti-anxiety medications and prescribed sleepers (alprazolam, diazepam, zolpidem) or dietary supplements/herbs such as kava kava, passionflower, GABA. High dose supplementation could potentiate and enhance the effect of anti-seizure medications (necessitating the need to lower drug dosage). Teas are weaker than supplements, make your own by steeping one tablespoon of chamomile herb in hot water for 15 minutes. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012 CDC: Teen birth controlContinued From Page 7A 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx8AHealth US 90 East, Lake City, FL 32025(386) 755-9130 Mon.-Fri. 6 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat. 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Sun. 8 a.m.-2 p.m. OPENMONDAY THROUGH FRIDAYMONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY Accepting New PatientsMedicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensationSpecializing in adult medical care including: Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINEVisit our website at www.SouthernInternalMedicineLC.com386-719-2540Allison B.

DEAR PHARMACIST SUZY COHENChamomile has a life-saving secret became available more recently, she said. The teen birth rate fell 44 percent between 1990 and 2010. Another factor besides better birth control is increasing absti nence. About 43 percent of the girls in the survey said theyd had sex, the new study found. Thats down from a similar survey in 1995, when 51 percent of teen girls said theyd had sex. We hear a lot of times from teens that Everyones having sex. But a lot are not, Tyler said. do for a cat with chronic kidney disease is hydrate it, Nardi said. Fluids reduce the filtration load on the kidneys, she explained. Sick or not, Nardi recommends recyclable water fountains so cats always have access to fresh water. But water wont restore kidney function, just help whats left work better, she said. She put Girly on an IV for three days, prescribed a special diet that cut down on protein and salt and made sure she had medicines for nausea and vomiting. Girly now goes in twice a week for subcutaneous fluid treatments, where the liquid is injected beneath the shoulder blades. Kidney transplants can ease pain and help a cat live longer, but they are rare and cost between $8,000 and $18,000, said Dr. Chad Schmiedt, the surgeon in charge of the transplant program for the University of Georgias College of Veterinary Medicine. Watch your cat, Nardi advised. Too often, a dog will throw up once and its owner rushes to the vet, but a cat might throw up every day and no one will take it in, she said. And she thinks love and attention can be almost as important as water. One of the worst cases she ever saw was a cat in the late stages of the disease. You wouldnt have given her more than six months, she said. But the cat had a special owner, she said, and lived for 2 years.CATS: Kidney diseaseContinued From Page 7A

Jackson received a call from Madison County High to participate in a special scrimmage on Saturday. To play on Saturday, Fort White is cutting back on the varsity participation in the Red & Black game on Friday. The game will go on at 6 p.m., and will be played with officials. Donations will be accepted for admis-sion, and the concession stand will be open. We will divide the teams up for the varsity as even as we can and do a little scrimmage, Jackson said on Tuesday. We will run 15 plays on offense of Red vs. Black and 15 plays of Black vs. Red. Fort White will turn over the rest of the game to the junior varsity. The format for the Madison competition is 24 plays from the 40-yard line, four plays from the 20 and four plays from the 10. The teams will then switch offenses and defenses. Admission is $3. Play begins at 10 a.m. with Fort White facing East Gadsden High. In the third session, Fort White will play Madison County and there will be a re-match with East Gadsden for the fifth session. Taylor County High and Fernandina Beach High are in the mix, but Fort White wont face them since they play in the regular season. Jackson said he was mostly pleased with the turnout at practice on Monday, after the pads went on for the first time on Friday. A couple of excuses were tricky. Spring practice began on May 1 which was a Tuesday. A few said they didnt know we practiced on Monday, Jackson said. We have some first-year varsity players and some didnt do all their workouts, so we will have to see. We will have more contact (Tuesday) and Wednesday and cut back on Thursday. Fort White will wrap up spring practice with a game at Orange Park High on May 18. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort Whites Shayne Newman catches a pass while practici ng with the team Wednesday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High will be in a bizarre situation as it heads into its annual Purple & Gold game on Friday. The Tigers will head into the game without senior starting quarterback Jayce Barber, but its not due to injury or suspension. Barber will be part of the Tigers baseball team as it continues its quest in the FHSAA Class 6A play-offs against Pace High in Pensacola on Friday. Its both a curse and a blessing for the Tigers. In one sense, Columbia will be without its leader. On the other hand, it will be a valuable experience for backup quarterback Austin Williams to gain experience. Were going to try to get through, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Austin has done a good job of coming in and man-aging the game. Hes mak-ing strides and doing well. Were confident that he can manage the game as a quarterback and not lose it for us. Were happy for the baseball team, but anytime you lose your quarterback its tough, especially with a guy like Jayce. Williams will take all the snaps during the Purple & Gold game as the Tigers dont have another quarter-back available. We dont have a No. 3 guy right now, Allen said. Hes going to run with the first and second offense. Its going to be a valuable-learning experience for him. Were not going to go out and ask him to throw 100 passes. We just want him to be able to manage the game. Should the Tigers baseball team win, the foot-ball team could be with-out Barber at the close of spring against Dunnellion High as well. Thats something that were not looking at right now, Allen said. Obviously I want Jayce and the base-ball team to have success. I understand that this is as far as the team has ever been, but then again, as a football coach, Im selfish. We want out guy out there no matter what other sport hes playing. Still, Allen feels that the Tigers are more than capa-ble of winning even without Barber. We want him taking those valuable reps, but again, we think that Austin can go out and manage and is more than capable, he said. He doesnt have to go out and win the game for us. He just has to manage it. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Jayce Barber throws a pass during a drill Wednesday.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who has float-ed ideas for how a four-team college football play-off should be set up, said Wednesday that any new format shouldnt include a team that doesnt win its division. I dont have a lot of regard for that team, Delany said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. I certainly wouldnt have as much regard for that team as I would for some-one who played nine con-ference games in a tough conference and played a couple out-of-conference games on the road against really good opponents. If a poll doesnt honor those teams and theyre confer-ence champions, I do. Alabama finished behind LSU in the SEC West last season, but the Crimson Tide got a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game and beat the Tigers. Delany insisted he isnt pushing for a particular format to be implemented for the 2014 season. He said a proposal that would put four conference cham-pions, ranked among the top six, into the four-team playoff was simply an idea he discussed with report-ers last week in Chicago. Some people think it should just be the top four teams; some people think it should just be the four highest-rated champions, Delany said. I was just floating some ideas of how you might have a hybrid where champions were respected and there was still room for at-large. The polls dont always measure strength of sched-ule. Some conferences are playing nine games, some are playing eight. The Pac-12 is playing nine and then to go out and play a round-robin game against us, thats 10 and some of them are going to play Notre Dame thats 11 difficult games. If theyre ranked fifth in the country and they won a conference championship, I think thats quite an accomplishment. Some teams dont even win their own division. They started off highly in the rankings, lose early, dont play a championship game and they might end up at four. BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock has said 11 conference commissioners and Notre Dames athlet-ic director will present a small number of options two to seven configu-rations for a four-team playoff to their leagues at conference meetings. The group of decisionmakers will gather again in June, attempting to agree on a final version for uni-versity presidents to poten-tially approve by July 4.Delany: Non-division champs shouldnt have a shot at title ASSOCIATED PRESSOrlando Magics Glen Davis (11) gets past Indiana Pace rs David West (21) for a shot during the second half of Game 4 of an NBA first-round playoff ba sketball series, on Saturday in Orlando.Magic begin offseason likely filled with changeBy KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated PressORLANDO The Magic found themselves at the center of the NBA universe several times this season. The only problem was that it was for reasons everyone in the Orlando organization not only loathed, but never wants to duplicate again. After four months of soap opera-caliber drama that included a preseason trade demand by Dwight Howard, a word war over whether the all-star cen-ter asked coach Stan Van Gundy to be fired and a rash of late-season injuries that culminated in a second straight first-round playoff exit, change is likely on tap for the Magic. That could not only mean a new head coach or general manager, but even major changes to Orlandos current roster. Were going to start a full evaluation process of our entire organization, Magic CEO Alex Martins said Wednesday, a day after the Magics 4-1 first-round playoff series loss to Indiana. Thats what we do at the end of each season ... and everything will be evaluated. Everything that weve done over the years is about getting to win a champion-ship, and unfortunately just getting to the playoffs is just not good enough. Howard rescinded his trade request in mid-March, and later gave up the opt-out clause for this summer, which will keep him under contract for the final year of his current deal next season. But with the Magic still facing the possibility of Howard playing out next year and then leaving them with no compensation by signing with another team free agency, they must either get him to commit long-term or possibly trade him before then. I dont think anybody wants to go through the sea-son we just went through, Martins said. Howard is currently in Los Angeles recovering from late-season back surgery that caused him to miss the Magics final 17 games of the season, including the play-off loss to Indiana. Orlando went 5-12 without him. Martins said he, president of basketball opera-tions Otis Smith and mem-bers of ownership have spoken to Howard, but not specifically yet about sign-ing a long-term contract extension. He also said there hasnt been a timetable on mak-ing a decision on Howards situation, or on retaining the services of Van Gundy or Smith. Howard has previously noted issues with both at times, but has repeatedly maintained that he never asked management to fire Van Gundy, though the coach said he has been told by team officials that its happened. I think everyone deserves and needs some time to cool off after a very trying season, Martins said. But nobody deserves to be left in limbo...Its not a tricky position (evaluat-ing everyone). Its what we do. Van Gundy expressed a desire Wednesday to return next season, but Smith said he is actually 50-50 in his mind on whether he still has the desire to return. Smith and Van Gundy each have a season remaining on their current contracts. Van Gundys accomplishments are documented, having won 50-plus games in each of his first four seasons and making the playoffs all five of his sea-sons. He took the Magic the NBA finals in 2009. Smith was the architect of those clubs, but has also made questionable moves such as trading for Gilbert Arenas, whose contract has since been amnestied. I talked to Otis a little bit today, but nothing about that, Van Gundy said of his future. Theyre gonna decide one way or another and you go with that. That part of doesnt weigh on me at all. Theres only two things that can happen, its not like menu of options. You either fire me or you dont fire me. Smith said he thinks Van Gundy is a hell of a basketball coach but that any personnel decisions on him or Howard would be done 110 percent of whats in the interest of the organization. He also said deciding whether he wants to remain on per-sonally would come before any type of thoughts about Howard or how the roster should look going forward. You have to have clarity on the top before you decide anything else, Smith said. While the futures of Smith, Van Gundy and Howard will certainly grab most of the immediate off-season attention, they arent t the only pressing person-nel issues for the franchise. ASSOCIATED PRESSTexas Rangers Josh Hamilton watches his two-run home run in the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimor e on Tuesday. Hamilton plenty thankful for his 4 HR-game TuesdayBy DAVID GINSBURGAP Sports WriterBALTIMORE Josh Hamilton expects it will take some time before he realizes the significance of becoming the 16th player in baseball history to hit four home runs in a game. He does, however, appreciate how fortunate he was to be playing baseball at Camden Yards on Tuesday night as a member of the Texas Rangers. Because, before his epic performance against the Baltimore Orioles, Hamilton had to do something even harder than launching a quar-tet of two-run homers. He needed to save himself from personal ruin. Hamilton went from firstround draft pick by Tampa Bay in 1999 to out of base-ball altogether because of drug and alcohol addiction. He recovered and returned to the majors in 2007 with Cincinnati, and was traded to the Texas, where he has become a star the AL MVP in 2010 while still battling his addiction. He had a relapse before this season, but is off to a torrid start. After going 5 for 5 with a career-high eight RBIs and setting an AL record with 18 total bases in the Rangers 10-3 win, Hamilton reflected on what his life was like before this unfor-gettable night. I think about what Gods done in my life, everything I did to mess it up, he said. To finally surrender every-thing and pursue that rela-tionship with Christ on a daily basis and understand-ing when I dont pursue it, I end up messing up. Understanding that what Im doing and what Gods allowed me to do, coming back from everything I went through and allowing me to play the game at the level I play it, its pretty amazing to think about.

PG-13 Gary Owen: True Story (N) Gigolos Sunset Place Donald, McIlroy face off in long battle for No. 1By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH Golfs world ranking has been more like a game of musical chairs with the most turnover at the top in the 26-year history of the ranking. Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald would like the music to stop playing for good sometime this year, the sooner the better. And both want the same out-come. Hopefully, Donald said Wednesday, raising his hand, it will be me. McIlroy said the same last week at Quail Hollow, where his playoff loss at the Wells Fargo Championship was enough for him to return to No. 1 for the third time this year. Donald has a chance to take it back from him this week at The Players Championship, which offers the most world ranking points of any tournament besides the majors. They already have taken turns at the top six times in the last 10 weeks. The last time the No. 1 ranking was even remotely this volatile was in 1997, when it changed seven times in 13 weeks among Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Tom Lehman and Ernie Els. The Players Championship is a rare occa-sion for them to get togeth-er. Already four months into the season, McIlroy and Donald have only com-peted in the same tourna-ment four times: the Abu Dhabi Championship, two World Golf Championships and the Masters. I think the last couple of months have not been as exciting because Rory and I really havent been playing in the same events, Donald said. I think that will change a little bit, and hopefully there will be some situations coming up in the next few months where well be playing in the same tournament and both having a chance to win the tournament. As for a clear No. 1, Donald said that can only happen by winning a major or multiple tournaments along with the other players not playing well. The ranking shuffle speaks to a broader issue in golf. No one ever talk-ed about the world rank-ing because there was no debate about No. 1. There was no parity in golf. There was Tiger Woods. In the 18 months since Woods abandoned his post atop the world rank-ing, four players have been No. 1: McIlroy, Donald, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer. In the 30 months since injuries and the scandal in his personal life reduced Woods to an ordinary player, no one has won more than three times in a season on the PGA Tour. That used to be considered a slump for Woods. Do I think its good for the game? Woods said of the current state of golf. I liked it when I was up there. Thats just me. The edge going into The Players Championship belongs to McIlroy, the U.S. Open champion, based on consistency. Not only did he win the Honda Classic in early March to reach No. 1 for the first time, he has finished out of the top five only once this year. That was at the Masters, where he was one shot behind going into the weekend, closed with 77-76 and tied for 40th. Donald, who got off to a slow start this year, has fin-ished out of top 30 in five of his eight tournaments. He showed how determined he is to stay in the picture, though, by winning the Transitions Championship and rallying on the week-end to finish third in New Orleans. Golf now heads into a time of the year where there will be ample oppor-tunity for someone to estab-lish himself as the clear No. 1, with The Players Championship, Memorial, Europes flagship event at Wentworth, followed by three majors and a World Golf Championship. If thats not enough, Donald, McIlroy and Westwood who at No. 3 also has a slim chance to get to No. 1 again this week at Sawgrass are PGA Tour members and eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs, which feature four strong fields at the end of the summer. It all starts to unfold Thursday on a course that fittingly favors no one. The past winners on the Stadium Course at the TPC Sawgrass range from power (Woods, Norman, Phil Mickelson, David Duval) to precision (Tim Clark, Fred Funk, Hal Sutton). McIlroy and Westwood skipped last year when they belonged to the same man-agement company and were not PGA Tour members. It wasnt one of my brightest moments, McIlroy said. Im glad to be back. The Players Championship typically boasts the deepest and strongest field in golf, though it gets just as much notoriety from the course on which its played, partic-ularly that island green on the par-3 17th that makes for great TV and becomes a smaller target depending on whats at stake. Missing from the field is Masters champion Bubba Watson, who has pulled out of the last two tourna-ments so he can bond with the baby boy he and his wife adopted in late March; Dustin Johnson, still recov-ering from a back injury; and 2011 Masters champi-on Charl Schwartzel. Mickelson, a past champion at Sawgrass, is fresh off his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Woods is coming off only the eighth missed cut of his career at Quail Hollow. Even in the best of times, Woods struggled on this golf course. He won in 2001, was the runner-up in 2000, but never seriously contended any of the other 12 times at The Players Championship. Ive done really well or I havent, Woods said. Either Ive been right there in contention with a chance or I havent. He was speaking of The Players Championship, though he just as eas-ily could have been talking about his season. His win at Bay Hill in March at least got him back into the top 10 in the world, though even if he were to win his next two tournaments, he could not get to No. 1. ASSOCIATED PRESSRory McIlroy watches his putt on the18th hole during the fi nal round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournamen t at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. on Sunday.
DEAR ABBY: My husbands son -Ill call him Duncan -came to visit with his family. He lived with us for about six months on and off when he was younger. During that time, he twice went through my dresser draw-ers without my permission. The first time, we discov-ered a photo of me in a negligee he had found and hidden. The second time, he said he had been look-ing for a key. I was furious and felt violated. During his recent visit, it happened a third time. I discovered my underwear drawer was slightly ajar and knew Duncan had used the bathroom in our bedroom. When I told my husband, he asked me not to let it ruin the rest of their visit. I felt violated again! After Duncan and his family left, I asked my hus-band if this upset him, too, and his reply was that he was upset that I let it both-er me. I understand that Duncan is his only son, but Im hurt that hes taking Duncans side. Help! -NERVOUS IN NEVADA DEAR NERVOUS: It does appear that Duncan has an unhealthy fixation on your underwear drawer, or he may be a cross-dresser. Because your husband refuses to discuss this with his son, the next time Duncan announces that hes coming for a visit, offer to buy him lingerie in his size, or install a sturdy lock on your bedroom door. DEAR ABBY: I have been having an affair with Ginger for several years. Shes married and has three kids. Ginger told me she and her husband had stopped being intimate just before we started our rela-tionship. Her husband caught on about a year ago. By this time Ginger and I had developed deep feelings for each other, but we agreed to stop because he had given her an ulti-matum -either break it off or get out. We stopped seeing each other for a few weeks, then she called say-ing she had been pregnant but had gotten an abortion, and we started up again. This time we had to carefully plan our limited time together. We con-tinued our relationship for another eight months before it finally ended. What Im having a problem with is Ginger ended it with no phone call -noth-ing. I havent heard from her in more than a month, and she wont return my calls or texts. Dont you think I deserved a better goodbye? -SITTING BY THE PHONE IN OHIO DEAR SITTING BY THE PHONE: Not really. While closure might have made this less frustrating for you, Ginger tried to say goodbye to you before and it didnt work. What probably happened is her husband found out the affair was ongoing and is monitoring her closely. Youll feel better once you accept that Ginger has chosen him and the kids and moved on. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I like to entertain in our home, and sometimes we offer self-service mixed nuts. What do you think of a guest who hovers over the bowl and picks out all the pecans and macada-mias, leaving behind the peanuts and the almonds? Is she being rude? -TOM R. IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR TOM R.: Sure its rude. Its also greedy and inconsiderate of the other guests who also may be partial to pecans and macadamias. However, because you know that this person has a weakness for two particular kinds of nuts, why not offer her a small bowl of her own containing only those nuts? When you do, smile and say ... nuts to you. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont labor over per-sonal matters you cannot change. Concentrate on work and you will advance. Putting in long hours and paying attention to detail will put you ahead of the competition. A professional look will add to your mar-ketability. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll dazzle everyone with your astute way of explaining and presenting what you have to offer. Networking will help you seal a deal or obtain infor-mation you need to move forward with something or someone you want to pur-sue. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do a little soul-search-ing and make a list of the things you must do to make your life better. Start with your home, family and obligations, and you will discover a way to ease your stress and improve your lifestyle. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do something out of the ordinary. A change of scenery or trying a new activity will motivate you to expand your circle of friends and make a posi-tive move toward a better future. Life is what you make it. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be careful not to get in someones way. You have to protect your reputa-tion and avoid getting involved in gossip. Work hard to complete any job or responsibility youve been given. Show strength, courage, accountability and integrity. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are in a much better position than antici-pated. Dont hold back, waiting to see what every-one else does. Be a leader, stand up and speak to your peers. You can make a dif-ference. Opportunities will develop if you take charge. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Money matters may be of concern if you have taken on too much debt. Set up a budget you can live with, or sell off assets to ease your stress. Sizing down will enable you to establish a better opportu-nity to move forward. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Communication will result in a chance to partner with someone. Whether it is a personal or professional relationship you seek, you will connect with people who can con-tribute something worth-while. Equality should be your goal. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Haste makes waste. Slow down and leave nothing to chance. Relax and let things fall into place naturally. Force will backfire and leave you feeling defeated. Put time and effort into impor-tant relationships, not an impossible deadline. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Do something that will improve your liv-ing conditions. An invest-ment will pay off, and a chance to show off in front of friends or relatives will boost your reputation and put you in a good position when it comes to personal decisions. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Do whatever it takes to stabilize your financial, emotional and personal life. Its important not to promise what you cant deliver. Stick to the truth and open your heart to someone who has been there for you through thick and thin. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Consider past experi-ences when making a per-sonal decision. You have to make the right choice if you expect to find happi-ness in the future. You can-not base your next move on what others want when its what you need that counts. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
