MEET YOUR NEIGHBORLake City women are best friends forever.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCounty officials plan to get the governor involved in their dispute with the Florida Department of Emergency Management over $400,000 $500,000 in reimbursement funds the county hopes to recoup from Tropical Storm Debby cleanup. During the 5:30 p.m. Columbia County Commission meeting at the School Board Administrative Complex Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St., County Manager Dale Williams plans to ask commissioners for their approval to send a letter to Scott seeking a resolution to the problem. Williams said Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne impacted the area in 2004 and the county did not recover all its costs from the storms until two weeks before Tropical Storm Debby hit in 2012. Thats far too long and I dont want to see that process repeat itself, Williams said. What we have in dispute is roughly $400,000 to $500,000. The county believes it is correct, but obviously the state is looking for some documentation. We believe weve given them the Says state owes the funds for cleanup costs following Tropical Storm Debby. DEBBY continued on 3ABy SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comApril Vinson and Lisa Lee have been named the new principals at Westside Elementary School and Five Points Elementary, respectively. Both women have teaching experience at Columbia County schools, Superintendent Terry Huddleston said. Vinson has worked as an intensive reading teacher at Columbia High School and has taught at Melrose Park Elementary School. During the 2013-14 school year, she was the instructional coach at Lake City Middle School, and she was supposed to be the new teacher support colleague for the upcoming school year. However, she was recommended by the hiring committee for the position of principal at Westside Elementary, and Huddleston said he thought she was the right person for the job. Shes real excited, and Im very happy to have her there, and I think shell do a great job, he said. Vinson is replacing Cherie Hill, whos the new principal at Pinemount Elementary School. Lee was a teacher at Summers Elementary School until she became the behavioral resource teacher at Five Points for the 201314 school year. Huddleston said she was very instrumental in improving the schools FCAT scores this past year. Five Points received a B for this school year and was only four points shy of an A grade. During the 2012-13 school year, Five Points was a C school. Shes very energetic almost like the Energizer rabbit, Huddleston said. And thats a compliment. She brings a high level of energy to the school. Lee replaces Terri Metrick, who retired.Principals named at Westside, 5 Points April Vinson, Lisa Lee take over for 2014-15.

More than 480 people and more than 40 employers were represented at the event.LAKE CITY JOB AND RESOURCE FAIRHundreds seek jobs at fairBy EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comBlue Thomas knows how unforgiving the job market can be. The Marine Corps veteran worked at PotashCorp White Springs for a grand total of 15 minutes before being laid off. His job, his income, his hope gone. Down but not out, Thomas was one of 481 people seeking employment at the second annual Lake City Community Job and Resource Fair Wednesday. The fair, a combined effort of Career Source Florida Crown and the Columbia County-Lake City Chamber of Commerce, was open to the public, but veterans received top priority. The 2013 event was for veterans exclusively. Tables of more than 40 employers weaved around the fairgrounds entertainment building, including Champion Home Builders, Home Depot, Avalon, Rue 21, Florida Highway Patrol and the Florida Department of Corrections. For many local veterans, this was a welcome sight. The job market is tough, and many find themselves out of work. Another former PCS employee, Sam Nearly 500 turn out for 2nd annual event at the county fairgrounds. Bryan Barclay, a human resources consultant with McDonalds, goes over the resume of White Springs resident James Murphy. Barclay said the potential employees that attract him are the ones he can see a drive in, a real want to succeed. I want someone who wants to work and you can see it. Someone who is very sincere in wanting to be a part of my company.

The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature passed the expansion on the final day of the session after previous efforts to push the legislation had been defeated. The lawsuit filed Wednesday in a Leon County Circuit Court does not target the existing $300 million program that served nearly 60,000 families last year. Instead the legal challenge contends that when state legislators passed the expansion they violated a requirement in the state constitution that bills can cover only one subject. The voucher expansion was added to an unrelated education bill because a day earlier a stand-alone measure had failed to win enough votes in the Florida Senate. This was a sneaky way for the legislative leaders to enact measures that had already failed, said Florida Education Association Vice President Joanne McCall.81 cases of mosquito virus now tallied in state WEST PALM BEACH State officials say the number of Florida travelers who contracted the mosquito-borne chikungunya (chik-in-GUHN-yuh) virus has risen to 81. Floridas Department of Health says 15 new cases of the virus were reported last week. Officials say all the patients documented in Florida contracted the virus while traveling in the Caribbean. Chikungunya is transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes. It was documented in 40 countries in Asia, Africa and Europe before it was first confirmed in the Caribbean late last year. Symptoms typically begin three to seven days after being bitten and include fever and severe joint pain, often in the hands and feet. There is no vaccine, but it rarely kills those infected. People infected with chikungunya are urged to avoid mosquito bites to prevent transmitting the virus.Wife says Fla. shark bite victim is on crutches FORT WALTON BEACH The wife of a Tennessee man bitten by a shark off Floridas Panhandle says shes grateful his injuries arent more serious. Melissa Moore says her husband Terrell suffered a broken foot and two deep puncture wounds after being bitten Monday in the waters off Okaloosa Island. Melissa Moore says the family from Pleasant View, Tennessee, planned to finish their vacation even though her husband was on crutches and their children were worried about going back into the Gulf.

By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com The Pinemount Elementary School nurse arrested in May for stealing and taking students’ pills now faces a charge of child neglect as well, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office offense report. Marilee Boozer, 24, was previ ously charged with petit theft of the first degree and possession of a controlled substance. State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister said he does plan to file charges against Boozer, but he’s waiting on more infor mation first. He declined to elab orate. Siegmeister expects the investigation to be finished in the next few weeks, he said. At that time, he’ll formally charge Boozer, although the charges may vary from those CCSO has put forth. CCSO’s investigation revealed that 25 students’ pills were stolen, according to the report. Murray Smith, the CCSO public infor mation officer, said it’s unclear exactly how many pills Boozer stole since she took them over the course of a few months and altered forms that documented the missing pills. CCSO’s investigation revealed that number is in the hundreds, though. Smith said CCSO believes Boozer was giving the children folic acid, a vitamin supplement instead, but isn’t sure that’s what every child whose pills were allegedly switched was adminis tered. Some children told their par ents they were being given dif ferent colored pills than they nor mally take, the report says. Other parents suspected their children were being given the wrong medication because their children were behaving unusu ally. One boy began dry heaving, vomiting and having abdominal pain the day he was given the wrong pill at school, the report states. His mother took him to the emergency room, but no tests were done because doctors believed he just had a virus and no one suspected he had been given the wrong medication. It’s unclear what the cause of his sickness was. Tests are now underway on pills that remained in children’s prescription bottles when Boozer was arrested.Pinemount nurse faces child neglect charge Boozer proper documentation.” The dispute centers on cer tain road repairs made during part of August. The state will not reimburse the county for repairs to private roads unless it is a temporary repair made in a life-threatening emergency. The state questions the use of millings as a tempo rary fix and also questions the severity of the emergency. The county contends that during the disaster it had to be able to get EMS, fire and law enforcement to residents to avert possible catastrophe and that “to wait would be negligent and endanger the lives of those residents.” The county has submitted its documentation to the state and is awaiting a response. “I don’t see why this needs to go much further,” Williams said. “To me this has sort of hit the wall and somebody just needs to step back, take a look at it and say, ‘this is no big issue and let’s resolve and go forward’... For a $400,000 to $500,000 disagree ment, this has already drug on too long. We don’t need this to drag out seven to eight years.” In other business, the com mission: Q Will set its proposed maxi mum millage rate for the 2014-15 fiscal budget; Q Will hear the preliminary rate resolution for the annual fire assessment. County staff plans to recommend the assess ment remain the same as 2013-14 fiscal year.

County staff plans to recommend the assessment remain the same as during fiscal year 2013-14. The proposed rate for residential solid waste is $193; Q Will discuss a request from Republic Services to bring out-of-county garbage from the Pilgrims Pride plant in Suwannee County to the Winfield Solid Waste Facility; Q Will discuss completing a water availability study for $17,400.

The proposed contract is for three years. DEBBYContinued From 1A By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.com A homeless man was arrested on charges of theft, resisting an officer, possession of drug equip ment and destroying evidence after allegedly stealing food from Spires Grocery Store Monday, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. Michael Anthony Kiser, 49, of Jacksonville, stole $8.56 worth of food items from Spires Grocery Store, located at 2681 NE Bascom Norris Drive, CCSO said. A manager told deputies he saw Kiser enter the bathroom at Spires with a grape Sunny-D bottle, which was later found in a trash container in the restroom empty. Kiser then left the store and headed toward a wooded area behind an abandoned house on Northeast Bamboo Terrace, CCSO said. Officers located Kiser and ordered him to halt, but he “kept moving about in the thick bush” and putting his hands in his pockets. Kiser complied as officers were about to use a taser, CCSO said. Kiser repeatedly stated that he was homeless and hungry. Officers found packages of food lying on the ground and a crack pipe, which Kiser had attempted to destroy, CCSO said. The pipe tested positive for cocaine, the report said. Kiser was then taken back to Spires Grocery Store where the food was returned, CCSO said. He was transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility without incident. Report: Man stole Sunny-D from Spires Kiser Jacksonville man faces theft charges.

T he teacher tenure war that’s been simmering across the nation for years has begun to boil over. The battle is now in Philadelphia, but it started in California and is spread-ing to New York. Hopefully, the abil-ity of some teachers to keep their jobs no matter how poorly they per-form will soon end. Here’s a recap. Philadelphia has an ineffective school system and teachers unions fighting change. What’s at stake is a cornerstone of unionism: employ-ment decisions based on years of service. Officials laid off 3,800 teachers last year, but 1,600 were called back. The layoffs were done by seniority, as the teacher contract and state law demand. For the call-backs, though, criteria other than length of service were considered. Because the city’s schools are under state control due to financial and academic issues, Pennsylvania law protecting the privileges of seniority can be suspended. Less clear is whether the teacher contract that enshrines seniority also can be bypassed. As more staff cuts are in the works, the city is telling admin-istrators they can bypass seniority to retain younger teachers if the ones they keep are measurably better, and the unions are pushing back. The confrontation in Philadelphia comes weeks after a lower court judge in California blew up that state’s tenure law. The judge ruled that tenure disproportionately affected the education of low-income students by letting poor teachers, too often parked in minority neighbor-hood schools, stay in place. Shifting the emphasis in the tenure debate from one that pro-tects the free expression rights of teachers to one that shows a union work rule is hurting education for poor students could be revolution-ary. Getting better teachers to the poorest kids is a national problem. President Barack Obama addressed it last week by dedicating $4.2 million to help states devise plans to provide great teachers to children who need them most. The other battleground in the education wars has been the new Common Core educational stan-dards and the changing curricula implemented across the country. Parents are upset by how Common Core has been implemented, and rightly so. But they’re also riled up by teacher unions decrying Common Core when what the unions mostly oppose is the teacher performance evaluations tied to stu-dent scores on standardized tests. In some cases, the best teachers are the longest serving, in others they are not. The fight is over the idea that merit, not seniority, will be the main factor determining teach-ers’ futures. That’s an outcome the unions oppose, but students must have.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Sheriff Mark Hunter laid it on the line at a county commission workshop in May when he said he couldn’t keep running the jail on CCSO’s current budget. He gave commissioners a choice: Give the sheriff’s office a $550,000 boost to fund long-overdue raises for all his work-ers — road deputies and corrections officers included — or take back the jail and run it themselves. The county should pay up and be glad the sheriff didn’t ask for more. Great care must always be taken when spending taxpayers’ money. But we cannot scrimp when it comes to public safety. The men and women who keep the bad guys at bay have bills of their own to pay, and we don’t need them jumping ship because they can’t properly support their families on a peace officer’s pay. Unfortunately, that’s just what’s been happening within the ranks of CCSO. In the past, deputies had an average of six years’ experience, Hunter says. Now they have about three. It’s time to shore things up.If commissioners can pay to refurbish the football field at CHS and build new locker rooms at Fort White High, they can surely take better care of the people who take care of us. County officials seem to agree that running the jail themselves is a non-starter. And bringing in a private com-pany raises a whole different set of ques-tions. The best and most economical solution is also the obvious one. Give Hunter what he needs to properly manage the sheriff’s office and maintain a well-seasoned staff. And keep him at the helm of the jail. Let’s end this debate and be done with it.CCSO deserves a raiseA forgotten lesson from fiery pols past Q Newsday W hat a week for Cleveland! On the second Tuesday of a sweltering July, the Republican National Committee announced it was bring-ing its 2016 presidential convention — and all the economic kick and image glories that go with it — to the city that for decades has gotten national attention mainly as a late-night TV punchline. Then, just three days later, the national basketball conglomerate known as LeBron James announced that he was spurning the allure of Miami’s South Beach to return to Lake Erie’s shore. Instantly and expertly, pundits and talking heads made the lateral transition from ho-humming about Republicans’ political motives to head scratching about an NBA superstar’s sudden yearning for home cookin’. Today we are all about the former. And we will end up by exclu-sively focusing upon a central les-son of convention politicking other pundits apparently missed. A lesson taught to grateful politicians four decades ago by Cleveland’s distin-guished former mayor, Ralph Perk. It isn’t hard to deduce the true motives of Republican Party lead-ers’ decision to hold their 2016 convention in Cleveland. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus laid out the strategy when he announced the RNC site committee’s choice on Fox News July 8. “As goes Ohio, so goes the presidential race,” Priebus explained. Indeed, the history of the modern era is that when the Republican presidential candidate wins in Ohio, the Republicans win the White House. When Republicans lose Ohio, they lose the presidency. Of course, holding a convention in a crucial swing state hardly guarantees a presidential victory. But GOP strategists agree it sure can help. It will bring jobs and money into the state. Also, it will be a vehicle for spreading the GOP’s political mes-sage through that swing state. And that can greatly help Republicans. But only if the party has developed a coherent message that is inclusive and not divisive in that state where independent-minded voters in sub-urbs often provide the margins of victory. Inclusive message politics hasn’t been something the Grand Old Party has been very grand at in recent years. But it has done a bet-ter job of it on the state level, in Ohio. Two top Ohio Republicans, Sen. Rob Portman and Gov. John Kasich, are on many Republican lists as pos-sible longshot candidates for presi-dent and more likely candidates for vice president in 2016. Either one could help Republicans capture Ohio and the presidency. Yet Portman and Kasich represent two different concepts of what the GOP can be about. Portman is a traditional Washington-centric Republican can-didate — and an impressive one. Kasich is, well, something else. He can be a staunch economic conservative; as House budget committee chair he helped balance the last federal budget during the Clinton presidency. But he still champions social safety net efforts. After a rough start as governor, Kasich is campaigning for re-elec-tion this year with polls well above 50 percent. He also complicates life for folks who like to pigeonhole politicians, having once proclaimed: “I think I was in the tea party before there was a tea party.” Cleveland hasn’t hosted a presidential convention since 1936, when Republicans gave Alf Landon the honor of challenging President Franklin D. Roosevelt. But in 1972, Cleveland hosted another conven-tion that might have been forgotten forever — except for the enlighten-ing lesson Mayor Perk taught there for future politicos. Hoping to enliven a mundane ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the American Society for Metals conference at the old Cleveland Convention Center, the mayor reached not for traditional scissors but a blow torch. He carefully aimed it at a commemorative ribbon made of titanium. Sparks flew, and the ambitious Perk set his own hair on fire. Mercifully, onlookers rushed for-ward and extinguished Hizzoner’s flaming locks (before any of the mayor’s opponents could helpfully suggest: “Go soak your head!”). Today, in an era when ambitious politicians increasingly seem tempted to overreach, especially whenever cameras are around, both parties should be forever grateful to Perk for having bequeathed for the ages his enlightened lesson of con-ventional wisdom: No matter how much you desire to leave a lasting impression with your fellow convention delegates, try not to set your own hair on fire.

everything, so at first I didn’t really like being here,” Leblique said. “But now I like it, I have a wonderful neighbor and friend.” She explained that when Haynes moved across her street 15 years ago, they bonded instantly. “I would go out to empty the garbage and we would stop and talk for a bit,” she said. “And she would always say I could come over anytime. There’s not many people you can do that kind of thing with.” Haynes, who moved to Lake City from Stone Mountain, Ga. agreed, and said she and Leblique have always been, and always will be, there for each other. “We just kind of look after each other,” she said. “It’s nice to have someone to ask favors from and not have to feel bad about it.” Problems big or small, the friends said they remember to take care of one another simply because they know the other would do the same for them. “Sometimes, if I’m in a hurry somewhere, I’ll forget whether I put the garage door down or not,” Leblique said. “So I just call Dot and ask, and usually she says I did and must have just forgot.” She also said Haynes will pick up her newspa pers or take out her trash cans while she is away. It’s not just the little things, Leblique said, it’s the big ger things, too. “When our husbands got sick, we were sympathetic ears for each other,” she said. Although Haynes’ hus band passed away from Alzheimer’s this year, Leblique explained that she had never seen some one more dedicated to their spouse. “She would go to the VA every day to help him eat his dinner and make sure he got into bed,” she said. “I would hear her garage door go up every night at 8:30 and know she was com ing home from seeing him.” She did that for eight years, Leblique said. She said she would always be there for him. “Well that’s why you get mar ried,” Haynes said. “To have a companion. Of course you’re going to change a little — you get old and ugly — but your love gets deeper.” She said that she has always believed that life is what you make it. For years now, Haynes has been collecting Madame Alexander dolls. She started out buying them for her nieces, but now has over 1,000. “The first one I ever got was $3,” she said. “But that was a long while ago, they are much more expensive now.” Leblique said that once, while she was looking around the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store, she found some dolls for just $7 and knew she had to tell Haynes. Although Haynes didn’t see any dolls her collec tion needed, Leblique bought one resembling her great niece. “Her name was Miss Irish, and she had red hair and blue eyes just like my niece,” she said. “Dot gave me a stand for her and I sent it to my niece for her third birthday.” Leblique said her main reason for buying it was because she had seen the dolls at Haynes’ house. The pair find genuine joy in sharing their trials, swapping their stories and exchanging shopping tips. “After the library we’re headed to the Dollar General Store because Dot has never been,” she said. “I told her they have pound cake for a dollar, and it’s really good, so that’s our next stop.” 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Y our savings federally insured to at least $250,00 0 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government National Credit Union Administration, a U.S. Government Agenc yNCUA Free Checking with NickelBack Auto Loans Mortgages Visa Credit Cards Membership is open to everyone who lives, works, worships, attends school or regularly conducts business in Alachua, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist or Levy County www.SunStateFCU.org Lake City Branches 1605 West US Hwy, 904 386-755-4097 619 Marion Ave. (inside VA hospital), 386-752-7894 COURTESYYoung Artists for the month of JulyLake City Middle School’s Young Artists of the Month for July are Pr incipal Sonja Judkin (front row, from left), sixth grader Caroline Lewis; sixth grader Isabella Park; seventh grader Soobi n Yoon; eighth grader Peyton MacDonald; Art Teacher Don Sloan.

NEIGHBORContinued From 1A MEGAN REEVES/ Lake City ReporterCarol Leblique (left) and Dot Haynes read together in the Columbia C ounty Library Wednesday. The two have been neighbors and friends for 15 years. Stalvey, was looking for full-time work. From 1984 to 1995 he served in the United States Navy. Stalvey worked in maintenance for nine years before being laid off. He has experience with industrial work but is willing to take any full-time job. “Full-time, whatever,” he said. “I’ve got a family to support.” Stalvey is a proud father of two and grandfather of three. “Being a father and a grandfather, there are certain things you have to do,” he said. Army veteran John Fink came to the fair because he wanted a new career. He was previously working at a concrete company and in landscaping. “I’m too overqualified to mow grass,” Fink said.Finding a career suited to his skills was difficult in the current job market. He hoped to walk away from the fair with “gainful employment,” he said. Employers like the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies were at the fair specifically looking to hire veterans. Sergeant Rick Damon said much of CCSO’s force consists of veterans. “We love to hire vets,” Damon said. “A veteran fits seamlessly into what we’re doing.” A veteran himself, Damon served in the United States Coast Guard in the 80s. Employers like CCSO seek out veterans because of the skills and values they learn while enlisted. Loyalty, discipline, following instruction, punctuality, dependability and accountability make veterans model employees. “Just about anything an employer wants, vets have,” Fink said.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: On July 26, 2011, you posted an answer to “Jittery Future Bride in Boston.” I am that woman. I had asked you how to get my boyfriend of five years to use my deceased grandmother’s ring as an engagement ring. I followed your advice and told my boyfriend-at-the-time that I wanted to use a family ring. I spoke with my father about it and checked with my sister to see if she would mind if I used it. We got engaged seven months ago, and my now-husband told me he had been hoping to take the stone from my pater nal grandmother’s ring, a stone from my maternal grandmother’s ring and one from his family to make a new “joining of the families” ring. We haven’t made it yet, but we all look forward to the special meaning that it will embody. We even plan to make a new setting out of the old setting. It’s a fairy-tale ending. — BLUSHING BRIDE IN BOSTON DEAR BLUSHING BRIDE: Actually, it’s more like a fairy-tale beginning. I love the idea. Thank you for letting me know how things turned out. Not many of my readers take the time to do that. I wish you and your husband a lifetime of happiness together. DEAR ABBY: The mother of a friend of mine died recently. I offered my condolences, and since then I haven’t been the same. I am nine months preg nant, and even though I should be excited and celebrating the anticipated arrival of our baby, all I can think about is that my mother is going to die one day. She’s 52, healthy and happy, but I can’t get it out of my mind. I have become a different person, crying at the most trivial things and often panicking that Mom’s OK. I don’t think I could make it through if anything happened to her. Dwelling on this is affecting my relation ship with my husband and my friends. How do I stop obsessing over this? — ANXIOUS IN ALBUQUERQUE DEAR ANXIOUS: A discussion with your OB/GYN would be helpful. By the last months of preg nancy, a woman’s body is swimming in hormones. Those increased hormone levels have been known to have a profound effect on a woman’s emotions. The solution to your problem may be as simple as understanding that once your baby arrives and your hormones return to normal, you will be back on a more even keel. If that doesn’t happen, you may have to talk with a mental health professional -although I doubt that will be necessary. In the meantime, your mother is healthy, happy and about to be a grandmother, so dwell on the positive. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let your emotions stand between you and a good relationship decision. Sharing costs or lowering your overhead will buy you the freedom and good fortune to do more of the things you enjoy most. Plan a trip for two. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep an open mind when listening to the concerns of others. Offering simple but effec tive solutions will ensure you get the same respect in return. Don’t let your emotions show, or some one will spot your vulner ability and use it against you. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your energy into doing a good job and helping others. The changes you bring about will be commend able, but not everyone will agree with your methods. Appeal to the emotional side of those trying to interfere with your plans. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your intu ition will guide you, but don’t expect smooth sailing. Meddling can be expected and must be handled with professional ism if you want to avoid a disagreement that can hin der your reputation. Stay calm and proceed with caution. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Jump into action and make things happen. Take control and do your own thing. You’ll gain respect, attract attention and be acknowledged for what you accomplish. Someone is likely to challenge you. Stand tall and proceed with grace and dignity. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let impulsiveness lead to a costly move. Investments will not be as good as they appear. Control your emotions when it comes to money, health and legal matters. Keep a calm dis position and refuse to let anyone take advantage of you. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participate in an activity that offers positive results. Doing something special with someone you love will help you bond and set the groundwork for a better relationship. Strive for equality and you’ll achieve compatibili ty. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new people, places and activities. Keep your emo tions in check and look at your options.
