By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com WELLBORN An inmate at Suwannee Correctional Institution has been indicted on charges of attempt ed first degree murder for slashing the neck of his cellmate and refusing to let the man call for help last year, court records show. Adam Baird, 23, also faces charges of possession of contraband by an inmate and depriving a crime vic tim of medical care. On April 4, 2013, Baird, who was serving a 30-year sentence for carjacking with a deadly weapon in Volusia County, slashed Michael Beyer in the neck and face with a razor blade, according to a probable cause affidavit. Beyer said he went to bed around 2:30 a.m. and woke up with Baird strad dling him, his arms pinned beneath Bairds legs. Beyer told officials Baird hit him in the face four or five times with his fist and then slashed his face and neck. Baird got off Beyer, and Beyer tried to stand up, but Baird pushed him back down on the bed. Baird then made slashing motions, Beyer said. When Beyer put his hands up to defend himself, he said Baird cut his hands. Baird then told Beyer to face the wall and lie still, the affida vit said. He also told Beyer he would hurt him more if he moved or talked. Baird placed a blanket over Beyer and forced him to lie still under the blanket for about two hours and 20 minutes, according to the affidavit. Baird then watched while officers completed their security checks. Sometime from 5-6 a.m., Baird noticed blood was soaking through the blanket and put the blan ket from his own bed on Beyers body, Beyer told officials. Soon after, Baird told Sergeant John Patten, Sarge you need to cuff me Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterErnest Larry Grandison waves to his family Wednesday after being s entenced to life for the 2012 murder of store owner Rajnikant K.

The Grammy-nominated singer was not present for the 1:30 p.m. arraignment when he was charged with one count of misdemeanor vandalism, DA spokeswoman Jane Robison said. Its not immediately clear what the potential penalty is. A call Wednesday seeking comment from Biebers attorney, Howard Weitzman, was not immediately returned.

Crestview police detectives say the woman appeared to have mental health issues and told them a head injury causes her to forget things. The woman said she forgot that she left the bulldog mix in her SUV overnight while she wandered a Walmart Supercenter in Floridas Panhandle last month. The car was left running with the air conditioner on, but officers said air had stop circulating before the dog died. An officer had checked on the dog earlier that morning and determined the dog was fine in the air conditioned car. Passers-by called police several hours later after the dog died in the hot car.Day 2: Visitors wait 5 hours for new Harry Potter ride ORLANDO For a second day in a row, visitors are waiting up to five hours to get on a new Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. A sign at the entrance to the ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, at midday Wednesday said the wait would be 300 minutes. Some visitors, like Juan Sigler and his family from Pembroke Pines, Florida, say the ride is worth the wait. They say they felt immersed in Harry Potters world. Others like Jason Phillips and his family from Baton Rouge say no ride is worth that long a wait. They had to board the ride three different times Wednesday morning since it stopped twice because of technical glitches.Court date could be set in theater shooting case DADE CITY Attorneys for a retired Tampa police captain accused of shooting a man in a movie theater might use a stand your ground defense at trial next year. Attorneys for Curtis Reeves Jr. will have to let the court know four weeks before the trial starts if they plan to use the stand your ground defense. Reeves is charged with second-degree murder in the Jan. 13 shooting of Chad Oulson of Land OLakes. Prosecutors said Oulson was shot in the chest during an argument about texting. Reeves attorneys say their client shot in self-defense. Floridas stand your ground law says people not involved in illegal activity have the right to stand their ground and even use deadly force if they reasonably believe its necessary to avoid death or great bodily harm.

Although there have been no reports of lightning fatalities or injuries in Columbia or surrounding counties in 2014, the state of Florida has remained the leading state for lightning-related deaths. There have been a total of four fatalities in the state this year, out of nine throughout the country. All nine of this years U.S. lightning fatalities have happened since May, which seems to be a trend each summer season, according to the National Weather Service. Its been this way pretty consistently from year to year, said Dave Shuler of NWS Jacksonville. Florida is known as the lightning capital of the world. Shuler said the state typically leads the way in lightning-related injuries and in fatalities as well. According to John S. Jensenium, Jr., NWS lightning safety specialist, the majority of people harmed by lightning are enjoying regular summertime activities at the time of the strike. From 2006 through 2013, 261 people were struck and killed by lightning in the United States, he said in a press release. Almost two thirds of the deaths occurred to people who had been enjoying leisure activities. Jensenium added that fishermen accounted for the most deaths, at a total of 30. There were also 16 deaths while camping, 14 while boating, 13 of beachgoers, 12 of soccer players, 8 while golfing, 12 while doing yardwork and 14 while farming, he said. According to his report, more than 70 percent of these fatalities happened during the months of June, July and August, with peak numbers on Saturdays and Sundays. Columbia County Sheriffs Office spokesperson Murray Smith said his department hopes to keep Lake City residents safe by keeping them informed during summer thunderstorms. We have a lot of lightning, we live in the lightning capital of the United States. I always send out thunderstorm advisories on social media to remind people to be cautious, Smith said. Primarily the fire department responds to these things because they can often start wildfires, but we always encourage people to stay inside and use caution. According to an NWS report, many lightning victims were headed to or just a few steps away from safety before they were struck. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration urges people to get inside after hearing even the slightest rumble of thunder. Anytime that you hear thunder, a lightning strike is possible, said Shayne Morgan, Columbia County emergency management director. No matter how far away it may be, a lightning strike may occur. Columbia County Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Crawford said that if someone is struck by lightning, bystanders should immediately call 911 so that medical and fire officials can respond as quickly as possible. He also agreed with the NWS that it is a myth that anyone who touches a lightning victim will be electrified themselves. According to the NWS website, the human body cannot store electricity, so it is perfectly safe to touch an electrified victim to administer first aid. Continued efforts are needed to convince people to get inside a safe place before the lightning threat becomes significant, Jensenium said in the release. For many activities, situational awareness and proper planning are essential to safety. WIKIMEDIA COMMONSHere are tips for staying safe during Floridas summer storms: 1. Stay off corded phones. Cordless or cellular phones are OK. 2. Do not touch electrical equipment or cords. 3. Avoid plumbing. Do not wash your hands or take a shower during a storm. 4. Stay away from windows and doors. Stay off porches. 5. Do not lie on concrete floors or lean against concrete walls. Florida leads the nation in lightningrelated deaths.Quick Lightning Facts1. Thunder, high winds, darkening skies, rainfall and brilliant flashes of light are warning signs for lightning strikes. 2. Lightning strikes the U.S. about 25 million times each year. 3. Lightning can be up to five times hotter than the surface of the sun. 4. Most lightning strikes happen at the very beginning of an approach ing storm or after it is gone. 5. If thunder is heard, a storm is close enough for a lightning strike.*Courtesy National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Weather Service up and get my roommate out of here, the affidavit said. Baird was removed from the cell, and Beyer sat up and said, Im dying. Beyer had emergency surgery immediately. Beyer was conscious after the attack but didnt say anything out of fear that Baird would try to finish killing him, the affidavit says. When officials asked Baird why he cut Beyer, he said, I had to, the affidavit says. According to the affidavit, Baird admitted to officials that he put a handle on a razor blade and used it to cut Beyers face. When officials asked him why he went for the throat, all Baird did was smile, according to the report. Officials also asked him if he was going for the kill shot to which he said yes. While officers searched Bairds things, they reportedly found an anatomy and phsyiology textbook and drawings and notes about arteries in the human body. He told officers the bags the book and notes were found in belonged to him, the affidavit said. The indictment is dated June 5, 2014. Its not unusual for a delay in investigations when the suspect is already serving an extended prison sentence, said Third Circuit State BAIRDContinued From 1A Law Enforcement agents and personnel from their Florida Computer Crime Center, known as F3, served the search warrant on Tuesday. Duffer was booked into the county jail at 2:22 p.m. on $120,000 bond. CCSO is a member of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, an organiza tion that investigates and prevents the exploitation of children through the Internet, according to a news release. CHILD PORNContinued From 1AFrom staff reportsA security guard shot at the Washington Street Elks Lodge Saturday morning has been released from the hospital. Niaja Bowles, 33, is recovering from his wounds, the Columbia County Sheriffs Office said in a news release. A woman who was also shot has also been released from the hospital. The shooter believed by police to be Robert Dell Church, 29, of Lake City is still at large. The initial investigation by the Columbia County Sheriffs Office revealed Church was in an argument with two unknown females inside the lodge at closing. Bowels attempted to separate the parties involved and take them outside. Once outside, Church fell to the ground, police said. It is unsure what caused him to fall. Church then reportedly went to a vehicle in the parking lot and retrieved a handgun. He shot Bowles once before fleeing the area, deputies said. The bullet passed through the lower portion of Bowles body and struck the woman in the leg. Church is described as a black man standing 5 10 inches tall and weighing about 235 pounds. Anyone who has information on Churchs whereabouts or the shooting is asked to contact CCSO at 719-2005 or Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at 754-7099.Security guard out of hospital

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Computer breaches put millions of Americans at risk every year to cyber thieves who hack into databases for passwords, PIN numbers, Social Security numbers and other personal information. The Target breach last year exposed 40 million people to potential financial losses. The nonprofit Identity Theft Resource Center has compiled 4,500 breaches over the past decade that have exposed 630 million confidential records. The number of breaches it recorded jumped 30 percent between 2012 and 2013. Thats why its encouraging to see Florida adopt new data breach laws that are among the most expansive in the nation. Gov. Rick Scott signed the Florida Information Protection Act of 2014 into law last month, and the new measures went into effect last week. They replace an existing set of laws with tougher requirements for pro-tecting consumers and for reporting breaches to the state and to affected consumers. Under the new law, data breaches affecting more than 500 Floridians must be reported to those consum-ers and to the states Attorney Generals Office within 30 days of discovering a breach. That trims 15 days off the previous laws reporting requirement. As anyone whos been exposed to a breach knows, the sooner the various banks and credit card compa-nies can be notified, the better the chance of avoiding an unauthorized purchase or withdrawal. The law expands the kinds of personal information that must be protected and reported when breached. A persons medical history, health insurance policy numbers and online user names and email addresses in combination with passwords and security questions are now considered personal information under the law. As part of the reporting requirements, companies must outline the circumstances surrounding the breach and the total number of people affected in Florida. The new law also requires companies and government entities to take reasonable measures to protect personal information. And it gives enforcement authority to the Attorney Generals Office, which can demand computer forensic reports and breach policies from companies that are hacked or mistakenly expose personal information. Civil penalties up to $500,000 can be imposed for violating the breach laws, just as the previous law stipulated. The rising tide of cyber crimes, and the lack of a federal breach notification law, has prompted a maj ority of the states to adopt measures that attempt to pro tect consumers when their personal information is expose d. Supporters say the laws have motivated private comp anies and governments to improve data security, or r isk the fallout from appearing to conceal a breach that puts their customers and constituents at risk. Some critics say only a small percentage of people who are notified of breaches become fraud victims and question whether the expense to notify is worth the effort. But to anyone whos ever dealt with the finan-cial chaos brought about by identity theft, arming the government with a law than can alert a potential victim is well worth the cost. New law takes aim at data breaches Principal comes to defense of Shining Star Q Tampa Tribune I am writing in response to a recent news article about the future of Shining Star Academy of the Arts. The daily operation, test results and progress of the Academy is my sole responsibility. Finger point-ing and scapegoating is not my style. I take full responsibility for my school and its overall opera-tion. Although our academic per-formance, as measured by the now defunct FCAT test, was less than stellar our first year, we have made significant progress and are defi-nitely heading in the right direction. It is true that so far we did not meet the expectations of every student and every parent each and every day. It is also true that not all the promises made about higher academic standards and better com-munication happened overnight. I have come to understand that those things take time. I know that our school has made a positive differ-ence for most of our students and that I am blessed with a dedicated staff and many supportive parents who are now seeing both academic and social improvement in their children. For those who were quick to criticize and slow to praise, I apologize for my imperfection. I must do a better job of advertising our successes and devote more attention to improving our overall operation. Great teachers make great schools and Shining Star Academy of the Arts is a great school. In spite of unfavorable comments made about our teachers by super-intendent Terry Huddleston, we do have great teachers at the Academy. In fact, we have a waiting list of teachers wanting to come teach for us.Teacher qualityAs principal of Shining Star Academy of the Arts, I am honored to be surrounded by some of the finest teachers and staff in the edu-cational profession. They are to be commended for their outstanding work ethics and performance. Teaching is a noble profession. It is not just about pay and benefits. We are a school that sup-ports and values each and every employee. Our recently retired assistant principal, Steve Frandle, did an outstanding job oversee-ing a phenomenal improvement in academic gains over the previous year. Some of my award-winning, veteran teachers provide the kind of leadership other schools would love to have. Given a bit more time, I know they will lead the way as we become an A+ school in more than just the arts.Lack of insuranceWe offered health insurance to our employees when we opened our school. We thought the premiums would cover the same Blue Cross program all other public employees have. We contacted Blue Cross of Florida and they told us the school district had the option to allow us to participate in the same plan at the same price as other public school employees. However, the district chose not to allow us to participate in their insurance pool. As most folks know, small group health insurance is expensive. With pre-miums for our small pool nearly double that of regular public school employees for the same coverage, our staff turned down the insurance plan.Employee salariesOur starting teacher salary ($33,750) is the same or higher than Columbia and surrounding school districts. Using the average salary of 30-year teachers with new teachers is a very misleading com-parison. Our paraprofessionals are paid more than any rural school in North Florida ($20,000). Shining Star Academys principal sal-ary ($82,000) is much lower than the closest other charter school ($137,000). Teacher turnoverAs with any new business, building a compassionate, highly effec-tive group of team players is an ongoing process. Shining Star Academy of the Arts offers teach-ers a unique opportunity to reach a diverse, highly-spirited and artisti-cally talented student population. Just as our school is not for every child, our arts-infused teaching model is not for every teacher. We did have a reduction in staff as part of our restructuring process. The statement that I let three teachers go because of low FCAT scores was inaccurate, seeing as the grades did not come out until AFTER these teachers left. School gradesKeep in mind that the so called School Grade does not take into consideration all the wonderful arts programs (Music, Art, Drama, & Dance) and leadership training opportunities (4-H Club, K-KIDS, school farm, etc.) we provide. The school grade does not include the testing of Kindergarten through 2nd grade and does not factor in the academic gains documented through the FAIR testing results. The current system used to deter-mine a school grade is based on how students score on a test a couple days out of the year. The FCAT grading system has been discredited and has been abandoned for next year. Nevertheless, the FCAT system is still being used this year for determining a schools grade based on student proficiency and aca-demic learning gains. Shining Star Academy students showed a signifi-cant percent of academic gains this year. Learning gainsThe percentage of students in Reading with adequate progress learning gains showed a great increase this year from last year. The percentage of students in Math with adequate progress learning gains went from 20 percent to 31 percent, an increase of 50 percent from last year. The percentage of students showing gains in the lowest performing 25 percent in Reading went from around 11 per-cent to at least 67 percent (a 500 percent increase). The percentage of students showing gains in the lowest performing 25 percent in Math went from 16 percent to 34 percent (a 110 percent increase). Proficiency levels Shining Star Academys 3rd grade reading proficiency level (Level 3 or higher) stands at 43 percent, which is greater than Melrose (39 percent) and Niblack (41 percent). Shining Star Academys 5th grade reading proficiency level (44 percent) is greater than Niblack (43 percent). Shining Star Academys 6th grade reading proficiency level (68 percent) not only outperformed all three middle schools (Fort White 58 percent, Lake City Middle 67 percent, and Richardson 50 percent), but was also 8 points higher than the state average. These schools are mentioned for comparative analysis purposes only. I believe that all our academically challenged schools are working hard to improve their school grades and are to be commended.An apologyIn conclusion, I apologize for any offense I may have caused anyone for my comments in the Lake City Reporter article dated June 22, 2014. I want to thank all of the parents, students, and staff for their support and faith in our mission. We look forward to an exciting and challenging upcom-ing school year. Shining Star Academy of the Arts uses the arts as a motivational tool for its students. We are not perfect, but our school test scores show significant learning gains and our performing arts classes are second to none. Moving forward, the future is bright for all our Shining Stars.

We gardeners know it takes a lot of hard work to have a nice garden. Experience and knowledge come with time. We have investments in tools and plants and planning ahead is important. Gardeners know the feeling of just having to have that new plant and then trying to find a place to plant it. Im certainly guilty of that. But the pleasure derived from gardening is worth it all. Desirable plantsIt is obvious to me that a pretty plant that is also easy to grow and propagate is a desirable plant to have. Many times this plant can be native and other times may be an exotic (imported from another country) but has acclimated to our locale. Plants that are able to survive in gardens with little or no additional help from the gardener, such as special fertilizers, pesticides or excessive irrigation are a pleasure to grow. Heirloom varieties that live on unattended in old cemeteries and abandoned homesteads are plants to acquire. Slow GardeningThis concept of having plants that do well on their own is not new. Theres a trend in gardening called Slow Gardening. This is a no-stress philosophy in which the gardener strives to please himself. This means less coddling of your plants, less need for water because they can survive on rainfall alone and fewer chemicals introduced into the soil. Slow Gardening is inspired by Slow Food, an international movement that promotes local food production and biological and cultural diversity. Slow gardening can help us appreciate and enjoy our gardens more. Easy-care plants Plants that grow well in North Florida and have passed the test of neglect in my garden include; daylilies, iris, angel trumpet, fig, ferns, hydrangea, azaleas, herbs and many others. These plants dont need regular pruning to stay in bounds like a formal hedge or shrubs that may be placed where they need to be kept smaller. These are familiar plants we see in many gardens. Of course they need to be established (watered more after newly planted until new growth begins to show) before I ignore them and I still need to weed to keep the whole garden from becoming a jungle. Perfection is impossible in the garden. Dont worry about a few insects. When you dont use pesticides, the beneficial insects are not killed and they help control the bad guys. Youll have a healthier ecosystem.Invasive plantsWe should be wary of those plants that grow so easily they become invasive and escape into the wild. Examples of these nightmare plants are: potato vine, kudzu (the plant that ate the South), common nandina, coral ardisia, boston fern, camphor tree, Chinese tallow, cats claw vine, Chinese wisteria, lantana (not the hybrids), Chinaberry, wild taro, mimosa tree, water lettuce, and water hyacinth. Hydrilla verticillata is a submerged water plant requiring constant management with chemicals and machines. The management cost in Florida public waters for this single plant species approach $20 million every year. The threat of invasive exotics is they are altering native plant communities by displacing the native species, or hybridizing with natives. Hydrilla was introduced by dumping aquarium water into waterways in Florida. It is now established in Canada and the southeast from Connecticut to Texas and also California. We might think we can control invasive plants in our gardens but wind, birds, animals and yard trimmings can spread seeds and spores far beyond our narrow boundaries. Enjoy your garden and be a responsible gardener. Know your plants: Be a responsible gardener Martha Ann Ronsonet Martha is an avid gardener who lives in Lake City. She is the author of Gardening in the Deep South and Other Hot Pursuits. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., residents brought flammable liquids, propane tanks, used oil filters, medications, latex paint, automotive batteries, antifreeze, fluorescent lamps and other materials for collection at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. This program continues to be both popular and beneficial, said County Manager Dale Williams. It enjoys wide community support. WASTE CLEAN UPContinued From 1A Grandison, who was wearing a white shirt, with a black and gray-striped necktie and black slacks, showed no emotion when the verdict was read. The jury was not polled. David Collins, who represented Grandison, said Grandison wanted to be sentenced today and after a 15-minute break, Johnson sentenced him to two life sentences without the possibility of parole. She told Grandison she was tak ing his prior record into account with the sentences. Grandison previously served time in prison for robbery, grand theft and forgery. Grandison showed no emotion until after he was fingerprinted. After sentencing he was handcuffed and while he was being escorted from the courtroom, someone in the courtroom gallery sitting with his family yelled, We love you man, and Grandison replied, yeah, with a wave to his family. Grandison was convicted of felony murder in the first-degree, with the discharge of a firearm causing the death of A&M Discount Beverage store owner Rajnikant K. Patel on April 27, 2012. He was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, the mandatory minimum under state law. In count two Grandison was convicted of armed robbery with the discharge a firearm, a conviction that also carried a life-with out-parole term based on the 10-20-Life law. Both the victims and the defendants family declined comment. Jeff Siegmeister, state attorney, said he was satisfied with the verdict, even though from the crime to the verdict it took a little bit longer than he expected. I think the jury did the right thing, he said. Mr. Grandison will serve the rest of his natural life in prison. Mr. Grandison got his just punishment. He deserves the maximum sentence and thats what he got. Unfortunately, Mr. Patel wont be there for his family. Collins, a state-appointed conflict attorney, said he respected the verdict. I think we are very lucky to have a system in which 12 citizens get to decide tough facts, so I respect the verdict, he said as he was leaving the courtroom. He said an appeal is likely to follow. Usually in these kinds of cases in which a life sentence is imposed, its pretty routine that an appeal will be filed for many different reasons, he said. That appeal will be filed. Whether there is any real appealable issue or not, thats a question for the appellate lawyer. There wasnt a lot of disagreement between ourselves and the state regarding the law, so I dont know how successful such will be, but given the sentence, (an appeal) certainly will follow. It was a well tried case. I think he got a very fair trial. John Durrett, the assistant state attorney who prosecuted the case, relaxed in his office following the verdict and collected his thoughts before speaking about the proceedings. I feel as though justice was served in this instance, he said. I hope that the family of Mr. Patel can experience some semblance of closure with this verdict being returned. I only wish they would have never had to go through it in the first place. GUILTYContinued From 1A

Argentina beats Netherlands on penalty kicksBy MIKE CORDERAssociated PressSAO PAULO Goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved two penal-ties Wednesday to send Argentina into the World Cup final with a 4-2 shootout win over the Netherlands after the game finished in a 0-0 stalemate. A day after Germany lit up the World Cup with its clinical 7-1 destruction of host Brazil, the Netherlands and Argentina could not manage a goal between them in 120 minutes before the shootout. Romero thought to be a weak link in this Argentine team and not even a starter for his Monaco club most of last season blocked penalties by Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder. For Argentina, Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Garay, Sergio Aguero and Maxi Rodriguez all converted their spot kicks. Argentina will play Germany in Sundays final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. That means Brazilians will have to watch their fiercest rivals play for the world title in their most hallowed stadium, bringing the countrys World Cup to an extra bitter end. Argentina, a two time World Cup winner, reached its fifth final, and its first in 24 years.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 10, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: My best friend is getting married and asked me to be her maid of honor. She has also asked me to buy an expen sive dress, host a lavish shower Im afraid I cant afford and plan a destination bachelorette party. The cost will be exorbitant. On top of this, she has asked me to be her cover when she lies to her fianc about where she is. She has admitted to me that she has cheated on him, and I think shes doing it again. I know its not my place to question her or tell her what to do, but this has made me hesitant to commit financial ly to her wedding. Should I talk to her about this? I dont want to lose my best friend, but I also dont want to put my money on the line for someone who isnt being honest. DRAGGING MY HEELS IN NEW YORK DEAR DRAGGING YOUR HEELS: Do not question your friend or tell her what to do, but DO convey to her that you cant function as her maid of honor because you cant afford the cost. And the next time she asks you to cover for her, tell her you no longer want to be a party to deceiving her fianc because youre having trou ble looking him in the eye. Your best friend sounds like a piece of work, and if it costs you the friendship you wont have lost much. This girl lacks both judgment and character, and youll be bet ter off to distance yourself. Both of you should mingle with people with whom you have more in common. DEAR ABBY: I dont know where to start so I will just plunge in: I have five kids by five different men. I am not a terrible person. I have a job, take care of my babies and am working toward a degree. But some times I feel like the ultimate loser. I get judged all the time. Im so ashamed of the choices I have made in life. Will it ever be better? 5 KIDS, 5 DADS IN OREGON DEAR 5-5: You will see an improvement as soon as you stop beating yourself up over the choices you have made. No one can change the past. All we can do is learn from our mistakes and make a conscious decision not to repeat them. And as to those who judge you, they should judge not, lest they, too, be judged. DEAR ABBY: My hus band thinks we should snug gle up and sleep together even when were sick. I think its common courtesy to keep a respectable dis tance from loved ones and to clean up after yourself when you have a bug that is communicable. I need to stay as healthy as possible to keep up with the needs of our child, the housework and my job while my hus band is sick. Your thoughts? MARRIED TO A MAN-CHILD WHO NEEDS A MOMMY DEAR MARRIED TO A MAN-CHILD: Your husband may think Im heartless, but I agree with you. While he may need you emotionally, his rational self should accept that with a child in the house and the demands of your job, you need to stay well and functional. His tissues, meds and a pitcher of water should be by the bed. There should be a wastebasket for his tissues. He should wash his hands before touching any thing, and you should use hand sanitizer liberally. You should sleep elsewhere. The cuddling can wait until hes no longer contagious. P.S. And dont forget to sympathize. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will be tempted to spend on luxury items. You can have fun without being indulgent. An important relationship can be enhanced with less possessiveness and more passion. Self-improvement projects will turn out well. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Concentrate on putting your own personal touch on any job you do. Taking an active or aggressive role in your professional advancement will have its benefits. Making a conve nient change at home will improve your comfort and lower your stress. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Consider your current personal situation and what you can do to improve your relationship with those you deal with the most. Reviewing the past will help you make a wise choice now. Question motives and be honest about the way you feel. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep whatev er you do simple and within your means. Moderation is key and not overreacting is necessary. A change of plans may not sit well with you, but it shouldnt stop you from continuing down the path that you feel suits you best. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make changes at home that add to your comfort and convenience. Offering assistance to someone who interests you will bring you closer together. Share your feel ings and offer alternatives with regard to your current relationship. Romance is in the stars. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful whom you share your personal information with. Dont mix business with pleasure. Stick to your game plan and dont make changes to your financial investments. An offer will not be as good as it appears. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your thoughts diplomatically and you will get your way. Any pressure or lack of courtesy will work against you. Listen carefully to what a partner has to say, but dont overre act or you will end up in a stalemate. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expand your interests and friendships to include something or some one unusual and you will learn something valuable. A change at work or within the industry you belong to will cause alarm. Dont overreact; it wont be as bad as you anticipate. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Uncertainty regarding your direction or who is on your side and who isnt will develop. Look at your options and head toward the people and the path that will bring you the greatest satisfaction and pleasure. Love is on the rise. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont take a risk. You are best to stick to what you know works best. Prepare to deal with the unexpected and counteract any situation that has the potential to disrupt a part nership that is vital to your future plans. +++ A QUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put greater emphasis on you and what you can do to improve your home, business, finances and love life. One main alteration can have a snow ball effect that will improve your life. Helping someone you love will result in per sonal rewards. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Moving, renovations and home improvements will end up costing more than you anticipate, causing stress and emotional turmoil. Sticking to a set budget or revising your plans to fit your financial criteria will be necessary. Emotional manipulation is apparent. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Woman thinks bride-to-bes friendship isnt worth the cost Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
