Judge Julian Collins granted Georges attorney, Richard R. Kuritzs motion to continue the case during a brief hearing Wednesday afternoon in Third Circuit Court. We filed a motion for continuance to allow us additional time to do the discovery and depositions in the case, Kuritz said after the hearing. Court documents filed by Kuritz indicate he is also currently involved in a case in St. Johns County that is now in its third week. John Durrett, the assistant state attorney prosecuting the case, objected to the continuance on behalf of the victims. We object because of the passage of time, he said, following the proceedings. This is a case that has been pending for over 18 months and the victims have patiently waited for the wheels of justice to turn. We want them to be able to obtain closure. Kuritz said he spoke to Collins and Durrett Tuesday during a hearing on the telephone where Collins granted the motion to avoid unnecessary travel and expenses for the witnesses. George, 41, is charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and acting as an accessory to a felony. On June 30, 2012, she allegedly shot her former boyfriend, Maurice Mickler, in her home and cleaned the crime scene, reportedly attempting to place Micklers body in what police called a Christmas tree bag before calling authorities to report she had shot and killed him. Mickler, 27 at the time of his death, was a convicted felon and wanted by authorities on drug charges. George claims that Mickler was abusive to her and her attorneys filed the motion seeking immunity under the Stand Your Ground law. George, who is out of jail on bond, did not attend Wednesdays brief court session. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterThird Judicial Circuit Julian E.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Common Core changes approvedTALLAHASSEE — The State Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday to go forward with dozens of changes to the Common Core State Standards, a move that seemed unlikely to quell the grass-roots furor over the educational benchmarks. The approval followed a raucous public hearing that seemed to indicate that passionate opposi tion to the benchmarks remains despite a con certed effort by Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Department of Education to tamp down conservative anger over the standards. Education Commissioner Pam Stewart has argued that the changes, which include reinserting creative writ ing into the standards and explicitly including calcu lus guidelines, as well as the fact that the state has science and social studies standards that aren’t part of the Common Core, jus tify renaming the initiative as the “Florida Standards.” Stewart told reporters after the vote that it made the state’s standards clear. “The vote that the board took today certainly does lay to rest where we’re headed, the direction we’re going with our standards, and this is the right move,” she said. But dozens of activists slammed the standards during a lengthy public hearing before the vote, portraying Common Core as a federal plot to take over education and blam ing it for a variety of ills.

He was 61. Devo founding member Casale said in a statement that his younger brother’s death Monday was “sudden” and “a total shock.” “As an original member of Devo, Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning,” Casale said. “He was my level-headed brother, a solid perform er and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got.” No further details on his death were provided. The Ohio-based Devo introduced themselves to the world in 1977 by making a frenetic version of the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.” The new wave band released its Brian Eno-produced debut, “Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!,” in 1978 and reached platinum status with 1980’s “Freedom of Choice,” which fea tured “Whip It.” Gerald Casale formed Devo with lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh. Alan Myers, the group’s drummer, died last year after a battle with cancer age at 58. Devo is short for devolution, the idea that man was regressing into an earlier state. Music suspect compared self to rape victim JACKSONVILLE — The Florida soft ware designer accused of killing a black teenager during an argument over loud music compared himself to a rape victim, telling his fiancee in a recorded jailhouse phone call that the police were trying to blame him for the shooting when he was only defending himself. In a series of taped phone calls and jail house visits released Tuesday by prosecu tors, Michael Dunn also expressed surprise at the media attention his November 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store had drawn and expressed confidence that he would be exonerated once a jury heard all the facts. Dunn, 47, was convicted Saturday of three counts of attempted second-degree murder for shooting at three of Davis’ friends who were all inside an SUV, but the jury hung on a first-degree murder charge for Davis’ death. Dunn, who is white, has argued that he fired at Davis after the teen threatened him and raised a shotgun or something that looked like one after he asked the teens to turn down their rap music. No shotgun was found in the SUV. Dunn is facing 60 years in prison when sentenced.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2014 3A we can. Although aware there was a training exercise underway, local public safety officials participating in the exercise had no knowledge of what was to come. Under the scrutiny of local public safety management, the simulation began with a parked school bus that had supposedly crashed after an angry parent struggling with custody issues ran it off the road. The parent rolled up in a black Cadillac Escalade, shouted profanities and boarded the bus with a large silver handgun, looking to take his son into custody. He fired two shots (blanks) from the handgun before leaving the scene with the child, firing a third once he left the area. Trained on-site dispatchers notified local deputies, EMS and firefighters, who arrived on scene to handle the situation. They have no idea whats coming, Morgan said. A group of FGC paramedic students role-playing as frantic parents of the children aboard the bus ran toward the scene, screaming and shouting, creating additional interference for deputies and staff. The goal for the parent role is to create chaos, said Mike Steele, an instructor with FGCs paramedic training program. If they cant control [the parents], they cant control the situation. Deputies and firefighters had their hands full trying to control the would-be parents, many of whom often disregarded the officers commands out of blind concern for their childrenjust like a real scenario. Why wont you do something? My kids are in there! Please, you have to do something! Theyre dying! Get my kid off that bus! While modern school buses have an average of six exits for emergencies, the vehicles front door was responders only means of accessing the injured childrena complication built into the scenario to encourage problem-solving skills under pressure. Firefighters responded by using generator-powered cutting materials and other extraction equipment to remove the bars surrounding two windows, creating an additional escape route for the victims. With the addition of special effects makeup, victims were drenched in blood to varying degrees, including a few that had shards of glass (plastic) emerging from their open wounds. Unfortunately, a handful of the faux-victims did not survive the ordeal, and many more barely scraped by with significant physical wounds. The armed gunman fled on foot to a nearby wooded area, but was tracked down with the assistance of K9 officers. Morgan said the scenario was inspired by the 2013 Alabama bunker hostage crisis, where a 65-year-old man boarded a school bus in Midland City, Ala., murdered the driver and took a 5-year-old student hostage in the mans personal bunker. We just wanted to make it as real as possible, CCFR Chief David Boozer said. This is real unknowns, being bombarded by parentsbut they handled it in stride, blocked it out and did the work they needed to do. CCSO Major Wallace Kitchings praised the performance of the deputies under his observation. I think theyve done well, Kitchings said. They managed the scene and contained it. Thats all you can ask of a first responder. TRAININGContinued From 1A slowdown, on how quick we can get everything back level again, re-sodded and allowed to grow enough that we can play on it. The installation of the lights were originally slated for Phase 3 on the Southside Sports Complex improvements but moved up on the schedule. By staging the number of fields where the lights are installed, four softball fields will remain operable while the others get lights. Muenchen said the lights are important to promoters because many of them could get tournaments done during the day if there was no rain, but rain often postpones games that have to rescheduled, often into early evening or night hours. The original plan for upgrades for Southside Sports Complex was based on a three-year timetable. They are going to redo every field out there, but they can only take so many out of commission at a time, otherwise we cant bring tournaments here, Muenchen said. The goal was to take it two at a time. Its just going to take time to get all the fields redone. Four phases of upgrade and renovation work have been scheduled at the complex. According to county reports, the estimated costs of all four phases of the project is $2.9 million. The TDC will pay for $1.7 million and the county will pay $1.1 million. In other business, the TDC: Authorized the staff to request permission from the Board of County Commissioners to apply for a Visit Florida Advertising grant for $2,500 and two other Visit Florida Cultural, Heritage, and Rural Nature Tourism grants for $2,000 and $5,000. Announced that the executive director of tourism position is being advertised following Harvey Campbells announcement that he plans to retire from the post as of April 1.

O n this fine winter day, when much of the country is an icebox, I know I shouldn’t com-plain. I can sit outside, feel the sun on my face and not get one bit of frostbite. But I’m just going to say it: I am weary of winter. Depending on where you live, you might be even wearier of it than I am. I live in the Mojave Desert on a hill overlooking Las Vegas. My family is scattered between the mountains of the Carolinas and the coast of California. In the west, they are finally getting some desperately needed rain. In the east, they are buried beneath a blanket of snow. Meanwhile, here in the desert, we are basking in a balmy, 70-degree, spring-like day. I say “spring-like,” because it’s not really spring. It just looks like it. Much like the ceilings of casinos on the Strip that are painted to make you think it’s daytime when in fact it’s the middle of the night and you ought to be asleep instead of walk-ing around losing money. “Spring-like” doesn’t fool me. I know any minute now winter could rear its icy head and slap us with a blast of freezing temps or howling winds or even snow. Yes, it snows in the desert. But not today. This morning I sat out-side talking on the phone with my rain-soggy kids in California, and my frostbit sister in South Carolina, whose Jeep is almost axle-deep in snow. I’m no stranger to nasty weather. Rain, thunder, hail, lightning, blizzards, tornados. You name it, I’ve known it. As a child, I’d lie awake at night listening to the Emergency Broadcast System on the TV in the living room issue the latest threat of death and destruction. It was way more exciting than Christmas. I loved it. I still do. Preferably from afar. But something happens every year about this time. In the dead of win-ter, with not a bloom in sight, I start looking for spring. I blame my grandmother. Growing up, I spent most spring breaks with her on her farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Once, when I was 8 or so, I said, “Why do they call it spring break? It still feels like winter.” She studied me for a minute, then said, “Spring is where you find it. Let’s go take a look.” In the basement, she pulled out a pair of old rubber boots. “Put these on,” she said. Then we each grabbed a walking stick and with that we were off. You could not outwalk my grandmother. The woman never tired. Tromping along through patches of snow, I barely kept up. We fol-lowed a pig trail, zig-zagging up the mountain from the farm to the top of a ridge. Finally, she stopped. “There,” she said. “There’s your spring.” She pointed to a tree all covered in pink blooms like little puffs of cotton candy on sticks. I wish you could’ve seen it.“It’s a dogwood,” she said. “It blooms every year whether we’re around to see it or not. It’s a prom-ise. You can count on it.” That tree became a ritual, a promise I counted on. Every spring we went looking for it and every time we found it in all its glory, in full bloom. When I grew up and moved away, I carried the memory of that tree and its promise with me from the mountains of North Carolina, to the coast of California, to a hill in the desert overlooking Las Vegas. My grandmother has been gone for years. Her farm was sold and the ridge above it became a subdivi-sion. I don’t know if the dogwood survived. But it still blooms, without fail, in my memory. Sometimes in the dead of winter it helps to remember the promise I learned as a child. Life persists in spite of us. The Earth and all its winter-weary souls are reborn every spring, every day, every moment. Just when we think life will never come again, a tree blooms on a mountain or in memory. It’s a prom-ise. You can count on it. Keep look-ing. It will find you.

Good job, coach Isiah Phillips, and please pass our accolades on to your entire squad. You made the whole county proud. Eric Holder courts the cellblock vote E ver in search of new vot-ing blocs, the administra-tion is making felony dis-enfranchisement its latest cause. Felons who have served their time in prison are now to be called “returning citizens.” That’s the word from Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., who demanded in a speech last week at Georgetown University that the states “fundamentally reconsider laws that permanently disenfran-chise people” after they complete probation or parole. The nation’s top law enforcement officer says state laws barring “returning citizens” from casting a ballot make “reintegration” into society more difficult. He cites a Florida study that concludes that former prisoners with restored voting rights have a lower rate of return to a career in crime. Perhaps, but it seems more likely Mr. Holder has in mind a new sur-vey by the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, which found that a mere one in 10 returning felons registers to vote as a Republican. It’s not hard to see why. Democrats are notoriously soft on crime, and that’s exactly how pro-fessional criminals like it. ... Mr. Holder insists disenfranchisement perpetuates “the stigma and isolation imposed on formerly incar-cerated individuals,” which increases their desire to commit crimes. Translation: “If they won’t let me vote, I’ll just stick up another 7-Eleven.” The Justice Department says that 11 states — including the electoral swing state of Florida — restrict voting rights for ex-felons. Mr. Holder sees 5.8 million undocu-mented Democrats to add to the voting rolls. ... It’s certainly worth considering restoring rights for certain nonvio-lent felons to help bring them back into society. It’s good to ask why the federal government has so many Americans behind bars for “victim-less” crimes. The Lacey Act, for example, makes it a felony to violate the envi-ronmental laws of a foreign country. The federal authorities have been a bit overzealous in prosecuting the “war on drugs.” Unfortunately, this most partisan of partisan attorneys general does not have the credibility needed to make the case. Hans von Spakovsky, a former Justice Department official and co-author of a forthcoming book about Mr. Holder and his tenure as attorney general, takes note of how selectively the attorney general applies his outrage. “In most states, you lose your rights to own a gun, to sit on a jury, to engage in certain kinds of employ-ment, like being a police officer,” Mr. von Spakovsky told The Hill, a Capitol Hill political daily. “Nowhere does he say a word about restoring those rights. That tells me he is only interested in the potential votes.” We would take Mr. Holder’s proposal seriously if this administration were even half as passionate about making sure that U.S. military men and women serving overseas can get an absentee ballot in time to make it count. But since voters who wear the nation’s colors, law-abiding citizens all, usually vote Republican, we don’t expect Mr. Holder to turn his attention to that outrage, not even in a speech at Georgetown. Q Washington Times TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1809, the Supreme Court ruled that no state legislature could annul the judgments or determine the juris-dictions of federal courts. In 1839, Congress prohibited dueling in the District of Columbia. In 1862, William Wallace Lincoln, the 11-year-old son of President Abraham Lincoln and first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, died at the White House, apparently of typhoid fever. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt signed an immigration act that excluded “idiots, imbeciles, feeble-minded persons, epileptics, insane persons” from being admitted to the United States. In 1933, Congress proposed the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to repeal Prohibition. In 1938, Anthony Eden resigned as British foreign secretary following Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s decision to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. In 1944, during World War II, U.S. bombers began raiding German aircraft manufacturing centers in a series of attacks that became known as “Big Week.” In 1962, astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth as he flew aboard Project Mercury’s Friendship 7 spacecraft. In 1965, the Ranger 8 spacecraft crashed on the moon, as planned, after sending back thousands of pic-tures of the lunar surface. In 1971, the National Emergency Warning Center in Colorado erroneously ordered U.S. radio and TV sta-tions off the air; some stations heeded the alert, which was not lifted for about 40 minutes. In 1998, Tara Lipinski of the U.S. won the ladies’ figure skating gold medal at the Nagano Olympics; Michelle Kwan won the silver. In 2003, a fire sparked by pyrotechnics broke out during a concert by the group Great White at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, R.I., killing 100 people and injuring about 200 others.

By BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter In 1939, Jane Hussar and her late husband Earnest Hussar arrived in Lake City from Miami. Jane was born in Burlington, Vt., and briefly moved just three miles from the Canadian border. She recalled the perception her friends had about her relocating to Miami to be married. At that time Miami was asso ciated with a life of luxury and glamour but it didn’t strike her as so until she was en route, at age 21. She chuckled when she shared the realization of her travels. After hundreds of miles she suddenly real ized there was no turning back. She recalled life in Miami was very different then, in the quiet, coun try-life atmosphere which seemed picturesque for raising children. She spent her leisure time out on the boat with her husband and her lifestyle was that of a homemaker caring for the couple’s two daughters Gail and Janie. At nearly a century of age, Hussar shared with me some of the joys of her life; realizing how capa ble she was of managing her independence in a successful career in retail management, sharing time with her two granddaugh ters and one great-grand, and having the experienc es afforded to her at the LifeStyle Senior Center. I asked her what was so special about the Center, and she responded that throughout her life she had not always had the freedom to enjoy diversity in her choices of friends. She had been fortunate, she said, to work for a retail company in Miami that offered equality to black people long before it was a requirement. She attribut ed this experience to her having a genuine apprecia tion for people today. She also said how refreshing the Center’s atmosphere was and how meaningful the relation ships were to her. She and her very dear friend at the center spend time talking and crocheting together. Hussar beams with pride when talking about teaching her friend to crochet. In addition, Hussar talk ed about one little boy she observed playing at the Center during a recent Black History Month event. She expressed how much energy she observed in him and how concerned she was that he would safe ly maneuver through the landscape while his mother followed behind him. I listened attentively as Hussar further expressed the joy she felt watching the little boy, realizing his journey into life had begun and she couldn’t help but think of all the beautiful things he would get to see. Mrs. Hussar brought such joy to me as I listened to her reminisce. With just a glimpse into her world I came to appreciate her beautiful perspective. We much too often view an accident with such con cern for the victims that we neglect consideration for those who are equal ly affected because of the impact — such as the children who were regu larly transported by the vehicle, or the neighbor who received their weekly medicines from one of the drivers. Many people have been deprived the benefit of learning not just to tol erate but also to appreci ate others. Meeting Mrs. Hussar, someone in whom this trait seems to have always naturally existed is such a treat! Thank you, Mrs. Hussar, for being that treat to Lake City. You spoke of having angels during your near century of life and I sus pect many have seen the wings on your back. You are a special person and we benefit from you being here among us. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER BLACK HISTORY THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 $16.00 Fruit Tree Sale!

Spending time with historical figures of today P resident’s Day for the 20 or so stu dents who attended the Teen Summit was, in part, spent at the LifeStyle Enrichment Center playing bingo with walking histori cal figures — our elders in the community. The youth were given one assignment for the venture, to learn something interesting about their backgrounds. Of course, once the youth realized that the bingo prizes, donated by businesses in the community, were fair game for all, many of them began to secretly compete with the senior they were paired with. The youth couldn’t believe the variety of careers the seniors had come from — ranging from teachers, retail managers, veterans, homemakers and even some individuals who had rubbed shoulders with Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers. The seniors afforded the youth an opportunity to gain wisdom and insight that can only come from people who’ve experienced more life than we have. There is no better way to demonstrate to a child why history is important than to allow her to see our elders for what they are, our walking balls of wisdom. Elders offer a unique perspective on life, love and progress that can only be appreciated by spending time with them. The youth found the experience rewarding and many found it refreshing in the absence of time with their own grandparents. COURTESYTeen Summit youth spent Monday with their elders at the LifeStyle Enric hment Center. HISTORICALLY SPEAKING Bea CokerQ Befaithful Coker is the executive director of It’s About My Eorts. Test your history knowledge By BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter Otis Frank Boykin (1920-1982) was an African American inven tor born in Dallas, Texas.

Tigers take another over Union County By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High picked up its second victory against Union County High with a 6-1 netting in Lake Butler. The Tigers missed a near sweep in a close-fought No. 1 match as Brandon LaVance fell to Rafael Sanchez, 7-9. Columbia was able to bounce back and take the court in the rest of its matches, however, includ ing three wins by the score of 8-1. LaVance and Daniel Rendel picked up an 8-1 victory in the No. 1 dou bles match against Sanchez and Hayden Thomas. In the other doubles match, Brandon Helms and Mason Adkins defeated Trey Spitz and Thomas Webb, 8-1. The other 8-1 win came from No. 5 singles player Noah Robinson as he defeated Chase Wilburn. Rendel defeated Spitz, 8-4, in the No. 2 match, Helms defeated Webb, 8-2, in the No. 3 match and Andrew Milito defeated Tide Molins, 8-6, in the No. 4 match. We saw some improve ments in the players, Columbia head coach Tom Moore said. Daniel Rendel played a very good match. Him and Brandon Helms played well against Union.

Columbia knocks off tennis foe for second time. GAMES BRIEFS JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Tyler Myrick swings at a pitch earlier this season. Myrick pitched two innings for the Tigers in a 6-2 win over Gainesville on Wednesday. Columbia beats GHS By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High had a dominant night on the mound using two pitch ers to shut down the vis iting Hurricanes, 6-2, on Wednesday. Daultin Mauldin picked up the victory after strik ing out six batters in five innings. He allowed three hits and gave up two runs. Tyler Myrick closed out the game with two more strikeouts in two innings. Daultin was able to throw strikes on eight of his first 20 pitches and really settled into his own, Columbia head coach Heath Phillips said. Thats what were try ing to get our of our start ers. Tyler came in and as a sophomore, hes a guy thats getting better every day. Columbia took a 4-0 lead in the second inning after Alex Milton started the inning with a double off the fence. He was able to slide into third after a throwing error and Kaleb Thomas knocked him in with anoth er double for the 1-0 lead. Harrison Shubert followed up with a single for a 2-0 lead and Mauldin then singled to score Shubert. The Tigers final run of the inning came off a wild throw to first to allow Kaleb Rossignol to score as a courtesy runner for Mauldin. Columbia added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth for a 6-0 lead after Myrick knocked in Shubert and Jason Plyn scored Caleb Vaughn. The thing that has real ly helped us this year is that its been a different guy every night, Phillips said. Milton and Thomas had back to back doubles and after that we really got going with the bats. Columbia improves to 4-0 with the win and will travel to Wakulla High at 7 p.m. on Friday. Tigers knock off Hurricanes, 6-2, to improve to 4-0.

Roughly a week after Stewart broke his right leg in a sprint car crash, Harvick was surprised to find his new boss’ bedroom had been turned into an unlikely boardroom. The entire Stewart-Haas orga-nization had gathered to discuss the potential sign-ing of Kurt Busch. They wanted Harvick’s input on adding a driver who hadn’t exactly endeared himself in the past. Baggage aside, Harvick knew as well as anyone that Busch was still as good as it gets as a wheelman. “I was the only guy who had ever worked with him,” Harvick said. “I understood that in my opinion he’s going to be good for the company, from a compe-tition standpoint, to drive the performance of the race cars to be better. And that’s why we are all here: to be fast and win races.” They were all in on Busch. Former rivals, Busch and Harvick were now the new guys at a sud-denly crowded SHR shop. If Harvick’s arrival, after a career spent driving for Richard Childress Racing, brought euphoria to the shop and a shot in the arm to the fan base, Busch’s arrival was a bit of a curiosity. Busch was covertly courted by co-owner Gene Haas, the often overlooked “H’’ in SHR, to round out a dream team of drivers that already included Stewart, a three-time Cup champion, and one of NASCAR’s most popular stars in Danica Patrick. Busch, Stewart and Harvick have a combined 95 Cup victories, four cham-pionships, and Patrick was the first woman to win the Daytona 500 pole. Harvick filled departed Brickyard 400 winner Ryan Newman’s spot in the line-up, and Haas made the call to add Busch and become a four-car franchise. Busch’s prodigious talent has never been doubt-ed, with 24 career Cup wins and the 2004 championship etched on his resume. But his personality has cost him major rides, deep-pocketed sponsors, and turned him into a journey-man driver at only 35.

DILBERT BABY BLUES DEAR ABBY CELEBRITY CIPHER BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I’m a single mom in a serious relationship with a divorced man who has children of his own. Between us, we have seven, ranging in age from 7 to 17. I’m in my early 30s; he’s in his early 50s. My dilemma: I’m interested in having another child if we get married. He definitely isn’t. Is it unreasonable for me to want to add to this already large potential blended family? I love the idea of experiencing moth-erhood again with a little more experience and age under my belt, and I’d love to share that intimacy with him. While he likes the abstract possibility of “our” child, he says he feels too old now and he wouldn’t be able to be the kind of father he would want to be. If neither of us had kids of our own, this would be a deal-breaker for me, but how do I know if my maternal longings are just the last, painful tick-ings of my biological clock, or a real desire that I’ll end up resenting him for if I ignore it and we stay together? — IS SEVEN ENOUGH? DEAR IS SEVEN ENOUGH?: Because your boyfriend is in his 50s and has made it clear that he isn’t interested in becoming a father again, I think you should count your many blessings and consider that seven is a lucky number. DEAR ABBY: My godmother passed away in January 2011. My godfather, “Jim,” remarried last year. I am still mourning her loss and have not been able to get myself to call and speak to Jim, even though I did send him a congratulatory wed-ding card. I love him. Jim is a wonderful, kind, attractive man. I knew it wouldn’t be long before another woman would take an interest in him or he’d find love again. My siblings have tried to get me to make contact with him, but I’m still not ready to accept that he has moved on with another woman. Please advise me. — CAN’T FACE IT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CAN’T FACE IT: I am sorry for your loss, and I’m sure your godmother will always live in your heart. However, if you love your godfather, you should be glad that he has been able to move forward in his life. That he was open to finding love again speaks volumes about the quality of the marriage he shared with your godmother. Of course seeing Jim with someone else won’t be easy for you, but it is sad that you would sacrifice the special relationship you have with him because you are reluc-tant to face reality. For both of your sakes, I hope you’ll reconsider. If you do, you may find that you like the new lady in his life. DEAR ABBY: Is it ever appropriate for a diner to lick his/her fingers in pub-lic, like when eating finger food or barbecue? It drives me nuts! I equate it to a cat cleaning itself. When I try to get the person in question to use a napkin, I’m looked at as if I’ve lost my mind! At the very least, our hands are covered with germs, and who wants to stick them in their mouth? Yecch. — GROSSED OUT IN OHIO DEAR GROSSED OUT: I think it depends upon the circumstances in which the food is being served. If someone is eating canapes at a cocktail party, lick-ing the fingers is a no-no. And most barbecue joints provide moist towelettes to their patrons. HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Protect your reputation. Put in extra hours or add more detail to the way you do your chores and your job. Help others and you will avoid being cen-tered out. Less complaining and more production is the key to your success. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can improve your professional position if you add skills or services to what you are currently offer-ing. Your peers, colleagues and superiors will consider you valuable if you keep up with technology and busi-ness trends. Innovation coupled with teamwork is required. +++GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your investments may need a tune-up. Go over per-sonal papers and any joint holdings you might have. A change regarding the per-son you do financial or legal business with will help you get your money matters in better shape. +++CANCER (June 21-July 22): Acceptance will help you maneuver through any negative encounter you face. The sooner you deal with responsibility, the quicker you will be able to move on to the people, places and things you enjoy most. Don’t let dead weight hold you back. +++++LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking action will allow you to show what you’ve got to offer and place you in a very cushy position when it comes to both your personal and professional connec-tions. Don’t let an emotional issue cloud your vision or your progress. ++VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Walk away from an argument. Love and romance are in the stars, and setting plans to enjoy time with someone you think is spe-cial will brighten your day. Children will play a positive role in your life. ++++LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get out and about. The more you interact with people who share your inter-ests or concerns, the further ahead you will get. A change regarding your relationships with others may be neces-sary if you are heading in a different direction. +++SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Do, rather than discuss, when it comes to domestic situations or deci-sions that must be made. By taking action you will confirm that you are willing to go the distance to make things happen. Explore friendships with people you find inspiring. +++SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A misunderstanding can cost you, so choose your words carefully. Helping others will raise your profile, but don’t allow anyone to take advantage of your good nature. Keep your money in a safe place. ++++CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Rely on your business savvy and ability to outmaneuver others. Taking an unusual route to reach your goals will help you bypass some of the competi-tion you face. An unexpected change in one of your rela-tionships must not throw you off course. +++AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Trust in yourself and put your time and effort into achieving your goals, not helping someone else advance. Make changes that will enable you to use your skills innovatively and you will surpass anyone trying to stand in your way. ++PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Legal settlements, contracts, invest-ments or any matter that can help you out financially should be dealt with. Money will come to you from an unusual source. Don’t feel like you have to share what you receive. ++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Veteran dad has no desire to start a second family Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
