A 100-TON gas spill at a liquefied natural gas plant in China this
week has renewed calls by environmentalist for the government to
abandon the proposed project in the Bahamas.

While news reports note that industrial accidents are common in
China, due to generally lax government regulations aird a reputed
lack of adherence to safety procedures, Ms Sam Duncombe, pres-
ident of environmental organisation reEarth, said the track record
of disregard for the environment in the Bahamas proved LNG in
this country would result in similar dangers to the environment and
the people.
"These incidences continue to show that LNG has the potential
to leak, to disperse into an ignitable cloud, and I think that it's some-
thing that our government really needs to take seriously said
Ms Duncombe. '

to 17 years in
emb6ZZiement CRSC
Puerto Rico
THE former chief of the
labor union of Puerto
Rico's aqueduct and sew-
er authority was sen-
tenced to 17 years in
prison in a multimillion-
dollar fraud and money
laundering case, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
U.S. District Court
Judge Jose Fuste sen-
tenced Hector Rene
Lugo, the ex-president of
the Independent Authen-
tic Union, and seven
members of his executive
committee on Wednesday
of embezzling US$15.2
million from the union's
medical plan.
The 65-year-old union
leader will have to pay
US$2 million in restitu-
tion to the syndicate's
health plan and a fine of
US$20,000, according to
the judgment. Rerie's
prison sentence of 17
years was the most severe
punishment handed down.
Rene denied that he
ever funneled embezzled
union funds into several
bank accounts. "I never
took a cent from the
workers," he told Fuste.
The 2005 arrests of the
union officials followed a
yearlong investigation by
the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice and the FBI into sus-
pected fraud. They came
two weeks after Lugo and
his executive committee
were re-elected to lead
the utility's union, which
represents 4,000 employ-
ees of the aqueduct and
sewer authority.

CONVICTED murderer Forrester Bowe, whose appeal to
the Privy Council led to a landmark ruling on the death
penalty in the Bahamas, was resentenced yesterday to life in
The ruling was handed down by Senior Justice Anita
Allen, who sentenced Bowe to death eight years ago.
Bowe was originally sentenced on February 25, 1998. At
that time, the death penalty was mandatory for those convict-
ed of the offence of murder.
A jury had found that Bowe was guilty of the shooting
death of Deon Patrick Roache, 20, at an apartment complex
in Freeport on October 23, 1992.
Bowe was 18 at the time the offence was committed.
On March 8, 2006, the mandatory death penalty in the
Bahamas was abolished by the Privy Council which ruled
that it is unconstitutional and that the appropriate sentence
should be at the discretion of the trial judge.
The ruling came as a result of the appeals by Forrester
Bowe and Trono Davis. Davis was convicted of the murder of
Jerrad Ferguson in December 1999.
Justice Allen yesterday said that she took into account
Bowe's age at the time of the offence, his character "up to a
point" as well as what a probation officer had said about his
prognosis.of rehabilitation before making her decision.
The prosecution said they had not been seeking the death
penalty for Bowe as this would have amounted to cruel and
inhutilane treatment in light of the fact that he had been.con-
victed and sentenced well over five years ago.
Justice Allen told Bowe thfit she nas imposmg the sentence
of imprisonment for the rest of his "natural life" which is
the meaning of a life sentence in the Bahamas, unlike some
Other jurisdictions.
Also unlike other jurisdictions, there are no varying
degrees of murder, only murder with intent.
Justice Allen noted that the sentence would replace the
death sentence that he received 11 years ago and take effect
from that date.
Bowe stood tall as the sentence was read.
After the judge finished speaking, Bowe took the caportu-
nity to raise the issue of hick of proper ventilation in his cell.
This issue had been raised before Justice Jon Isaacs several
weeks ago.
Justice Isaacs had ordered that the door which Bowe
claimed had been placed over the bars of his cell preventing
proper ventilation be removed.
Director of Public Prosecutions Bernard Turner said that
reports from the prison indicated that the judge's orders had
been adhered to. However he added that there should be a
determination of whether this was so.
Bowe's attorney Gina Morley also raised the issue that
Bowe is of the.Rastafarian faith. She said that she wanted to
make an application to the court to the effect that his hair
not be cut.
Justice Allen asked the attorney to submit both applica-
tions and supporting affidavits.

A NEW advocacy group has .
pledged to set up mechanisms to
investigate and record.human
rights abuses in the Bahamas.
Its members say they will work
to promote education about.and
support for the universal applica-
tion of fundamental human rights.
Yesterday, members of the
newly-formed group,, the
Bahamas Human Rights Net-
work, held a press conference in .
front of the Supreme Court on
Parliament Street to commemb-
rate International Human Rights
This day is observed by the
international community every
year on December 10. It com-
memorates the day in 1948 when
the United Nations General
Assembly adopted the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights.
Erin Greene, spokesperson for
the group, told The Tribune that
their purpose is to begin building
a culture of democracy and under-
standing of the needs of vulnera_
ble communities in Bahamian
"Our legal system lays a pretty
good system for the protection of
rights, but we need the assistance
of civil society to ensure that the
judicialsystemworks properly, so
that the weakest and poorest of

the Bahamian people can have
access to justice," said Ms Greene.
Elsworth Johnson, another
spokesperson for the group, said
they chose the Supreme Court to
commemorate Human Rights
Day in an effort to affirm their
commitment to one of the most
basic fundamental human rights
of every individual in the
Bahamas the right to have his or
her concerns heard before a free,
fair and impartial judiciary.
"We plan to come here on
many different occasions and
enforce these rights, so that's why
we choose the courts today," said
Mr Johnson,
In a statement released at the
press conference, the BHRN said
that the preservation of funda-
mental rights and freedoms are
essential to the proper functiomng
of a democratic society, and that
this can only be guaranteed by an
inderiendefit body that pledges to
promote and encourage respect
for fundamental rights and free-
The objectives of the group are
to work to promote the obser-
vance of human rights in all
respects, to promote education
regarding human rights and
responsibilities, to set up mecha-
nisms to investigate and record

abuses of human rights, to seek
means and ways to remedy abus-
es of human rights, to establish
methods of resolving human
rights disputes, and to liaise with
and support other human rights
groups in the Caribbean and
throughout the world.
The BHRN said it intends to
be an advocate for the "disen-
franchised, a support for the pow
erless, and a voice for those hav
ing no voice,"
The theme for Human Rights
Day this year is the eradication
of world poverty.
Yesterday, Ms Louise Arbour,
the United Nations High Com
missioner for Human Rights, said
that the UN wants to use this
Human Rights Day to "reaffirm
that freedom from want is a right,
not merely a matter of compas-
sion, and that fighting poverty is a
duty that binds those who govern
as surely as their obligation to
ensure that all people are able to
speak freely, choose their leaders
and worship as their conscience
guides them."

Mr Laing also contested Mr

of Assembly that he called the
National Health Insurance

"I never did any such thing .
. and he can't prove that I

The former minister said
that he would never label the

ing that Mr Miller must have
confused him for the leader
of the Bahamas Democratic
Movement Cassius Stuart,
who made such a claim on the
radio show Issues of the Day.
"That very morning, Jeff

was a tax.

Open e er to

Dr Bernard Nottage

EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE allow this concerned senior citizen a small space in your
editorial to convey this open letter to Dr Bernard Nottage, Minis-
ter of Health regarding the inadequate in-patient care provided to
my wife during 10 days hospitalization period while on the Female
Surgical Ward of Princess Margaret Hospital.
On October 19,.2006 my wife, who is also a senior citizen, under-
. went surgery which resulted in her being hospitalized. From the very
onset, the staff was provided a full account of my wife's managed
illnesses (diabetes, hypertension and Alzheimer), along with her
medication regimen. The aftermath of the surgery left my wife
immobile, and requiring assistance in the administering of her
medication, meals and hygienic care. All of \vhich were grossly
neglected by the nursing staff.
A number of the nurses were very unprofessional, and uncaring.
Although they were made aware of my wife's deteriorating con-
dition, no action was taken to manage her care, and on October 24,
2006 she was discharged with significant weight loss, out-of-control
blood pressure and sugar glucose level, only to be readmitted by
ambulance hours later, whey she collapsed. Her re-admittance to
the Female Surgical Ward seemed to have angered the nursing staff
abd their assistance and care seemed to have been further with-
drawn, which restilted in her developing severe bed sores which
went untreated up to the time of her final discharge on October 28,
2006. This condition did not exist during her initial hospitalization,
and must now be treated at the expense of two pensioners.
It is evident that a senior citizen, who is limited in her ability, can
be neglected to the point of abuse in the public health care system,
as was the case during my wife's hospitalization. I therefore call
upon the Minister of Health and the relevant authorities to look into
this matter regarding the health care.

When I was a young clerk just
starting out two decades ago, I
met a Caucasian American gen-
tleman who had come to The
Bahamas to trace his genealogy. I
was young, green and naive and
had no idea of the man's mal-
intentions. However the blue-
. eyed, ntdhsu equently isem
prove that his grandmother, who
was a conkyjoe Bahamian, was
not pure white and therefore he

United States because he was

perately needed his grandmoth-
er's birth certificate which would
indicate her racial extraction.
Well, needless to say the white
man was successful m his court
action, but only after producing,
his Grammy's ongmal birth cer
tificate showing her race as "M ,
meaning Mixed. I always felt that
if it had not been for economic
gain, this selfish and greedy con-
tractor would never have men-
tioned this point.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
LAST year I submitted a letter
to this daily complaining that the
births and deaths records of the
Bahamas were being comput-
erised, but that the race of the
person was being deleted, or
omitted, because no provision
had been made in the computer
In my original letter I cited
three examples to emphasis the
importance of retalmng the race

Mixed and A for African or
I am pleased to report that the
computer has been re-pro-
grammed to reflect the race of
persons for the said period of our
The purpose of this letter is
1) To thank the authorities for
seeing the wisdomin computer-
ising the births and deaths of the
Bahamas accurately by including
race, and
2) To suggest that a footnote or
Abbreviation be made at the bot-
tom or on the reverse of the cer-
tificates to define the letters E,
IVTand A.
At the moment there is nothing
on the certificates being issued
by the Registrar General's Office
to explain the significance or
meaning of the letters E, M and
Without clearly defining the
aforesaid letters, we are opening
up ourselves for the liberals and
mal-intentioned among us to
argue and misinterpret A as
Anglo; Any Race or Anonymous
Race; M to mean Mongoloid or
Monkey Race and E for Eastern
or Every Race. Now that may
soutd far-fetched and to some
even ridiculous, but when you
have seen and heard all that I
have, anything is possible.
For the benefit of readers who
may have missed the three salicitt
examples I gave m my 14itial let-
ter, I shall repeat them hereun-
de@nee in a quieting petition,
application was being made for a
certificate of title to a large tract
of land on one of the Family
Islands. The petitioner was a
Johnson and he was alleging in
his abstract to be the owner
through inheritance of some 2000
acres of land. It was ultimately
discovered through birth and
death records and meticulous
research that the original John-
son owner was a white or Euro-
pean Bahamian and the petition-
er was an Afro-Bahamian and
that there was no consanguinity
between them. Naturally it was


IT WAS DEFTLY and diplomatically
done, but the message was unmistakable.
On Wednesday, James Baker, Lee Hamil-
ton and the Iraq Study Group essentially
declared George W. Bush's foreign pohcy
In effect, the 10-member commission led by
the former secretary of state laid down a set
of bipartisan benchmarks for judging the
Bush administration itself.
Although the group lent its prestige to giv-
ing the president a year or so to try to stabi-
lize Iraq, they made it crystal clear he needs
to reverse his (anti-)diplomatic approach.
. White House Press Secretary Tony Snow
later maintained that the study group's con-
clusions and recommendations weren't a
rebuke to the administration. .
Actually, they really can't be read as any-
thing but. And that's why the report, in con-
junction with the imminent Democratic take-
over of Congress, has the potential to change a big way. The report puts forward
what could well become a consensus political
time frame for the withdrawal of most US
combat troops from Iraq, saying that could
(read: should) happen by the first quarter of
To lay claim to the brief bipartisan breath-
ing space the commission's recommendations
could secure for him, the president must do a
dramatic about-face..
The group as much as said the notion of a
flourishing democracy in Iraq has become a
pipe dream. It told, an administration
informed by the peo-con notion that it can
remake the world according to its will and
idea that it must now accept the realities of
the Middle East, not just by engaghig with
Syria and Iran, but by seeking their inclu-
.in an mtertliational up orbgrouspt for
ing the peace process betiveen Israel and the
Palestinians to address broader regional con-
President Bush may try to ignore those
recommendations, of course.
But if he does, the report should embolden
congressional Democrats, who note, rightly,
that much of their thinking is mirrored in
the study group's conclusions.
Here's what Harry Reid, the incoming Seit-
ate majority leader, and Senator Richard
Durbin, his number two, wrote: in a memo
to the study ggoup in Augitst: "We think it is
time to transition (be US mission to one of
counter-terronsm, training, logistics and force
protection. We also believe that a phased

redeployment of US forces should begin
before the end of the year. This redeploy-
- ment is critical to ensuring that Iraqis begin to
take the lead for the secunty of their nation."
They also recommended a regional diplo-
matic imtiative and a revitahzed economic
reconstruction effort in Traq. The endorse-
ment of that basic approach by the panel of
Washington wise folk should give Democ-
rats bipartisan leverage to demand a change
in admimstration pohcy.
How will Congress react if Bush merely
pays lip service to the study group on its
major recommendations? I asked that of Sen-
ator Joseph Biden, incoming chairman of the
Senate Foretgn Relations Committee, dur-
ing his Wednesday conference call with
Biden said the response could range any-
where from rejecting the administration's
legislative requests "to trying to get a reso-
lution ... to jointly condemn the president or
criticism the president's failure to move."
The Delaware Democrat didn't believe
that would be necessary, however, because of
the pressure the president will feel from his
own party-
"I don't think that a majority of the Repub-
licans are going to allow him to ignore this
report," he said. With 21 Republican Senate
seats up in 2008, "I am absolutely convinced
that they are not going to sit by and not let
their displeasure be known" if the president
won't change his approach.
The administration has a bigger problem
than changing domestic political realities,
however. It doesn't have a strategy for suc-
cess in Iraq and it's far from clear that
the commission's notion of a stronger, more
capable central government and better-
trame raqid b s ued in "The
End of Iraq" (and on this page), you can't
build an effective national military force if the
various components are ma civil war with
each other.
Biden and Galbraith both favour facilitat-
ing what is already starting to take place in
Iraq: the division of the country into separate,
largely autonomous regions for the Shi'ites,
the Sungi Arabs, and the Kurds.s
Earlynext year, Biden plans, to use the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee to
explore that option. With Iraq spiraling out of
control, that could turn out to be the least
bad of a series of unpalatable choices.

I sim extremely vex at these stupid people who are always driving
around with their bright lights on, trying to blind me. I almost get
in one accident the other night trying to get home. Driving instruc-
tors need to start taking their students out after dark so that they
can be taught what to do and not to do at night, because obvious-
ly the problem is one of ignorance. If a street is fully lighted there
is no need for bright lights. I am sick to death of these drivers. If
they keep this up I will soon have to start wearing shades at night.

I vex because Batelco's Internet system keeps going down. I
can barely stay online for five minutes before I lose my Internet con-
nection. Now, I have Vonage and since Batelco came out with da
Vibe my Internet keeps going in and out. I don't mean to be super-
stitious but I really>think that this is a form of sabotage. Because
when I ask other people (without Vonage) how their Internet is
functioning they never seem to have a problem. So this is either a
blatant form of sabotage or Batelco's Internet system in my area in

giving her wide berth because she was acting like a fool. People like
her need to off the streets and being psychologically analysed.

Tribune Travel Editor
TURNING over the pages
of memory, looking back into
the not too distant past,
Eleuthera once stood as a
giant among the tourism des-
tinations in the region.
While the names sound
familiar to a new generation of
Bahamians -- the Rock Sound
Club, Cotton Bay, French
Leaves, Cape Eleuthera -
these new developments are
all echoes of a past that was
once central to the definition
of Bahamian tourism.
"Beginning in the late l950s,

that's when Eleuthera was tru-
ly a five-star destination. That
was when you had the rich
and the famous, the celebri-
ties, staying at these proper-
ties. People would travel here
in droves," said Raymond
Harrison, general manager of
the Eleuthera Tourism Office.
"That was the time of what
we call generation travel,
where grandparents and par-
ents and grandkids, they used
to travel to the island together,
and as the children grew they,
would bring their children.
Those properties, including
the Potlatch Club, were pretty
upscale, everybody wore
jackets and ties during the

The birth of Eleuthera's
tourism industry, which start-
ed with a boom, came with the
arrival of American industri-
alists such as Arthur Vining-
Davis, Henry J
Kaiser and Juan Tripp, own-
er of Pan American Airlines
and the initial developer of
Cotton Bay.
Mr Tripp would later sell
the development, in the 1940s,
to Mr Vining-Davis.
From the late 1950s,
through the 60s and into the
70s, the island's tourism busi-
ness flourished.
The 1980s however, the
beginning of the end, ivas
marked by the fading away of
business and the deterioration
of properties.
"It is my understanding that

=Eitk nce
ket crashed in the US (1987)
they released their interest in
the hotels here before any-
where else. And afterwards all
the hotels closed down."
Eleuthera did not remain
dormant for long, however.
With the emergence of a new
era the birth of a new class
of wealthy black Bahamians,
an increase in international
attention and the governmen-
t's creation of investor friend-
ly policies the island is expe-
nencing a renaissance which
is opening the door for the
return of Eleuthera's glory
"We know that within three
. to five years Eleuthera will
become the destination of
choice within the region
because we would have devel-
oped a five to six star product
here and the community at
large will see a different ini-
tiative being taken on the
island," Mr Harrison said.


MA SPECTACULAR view of Eleuthera


I vex because the gov- 7
elrnment spending all kin-
signmwhiee the nsid of
the airport looks terri- a
ble. Our airport must be
the only airport in the
world that does not have
a screen that give depar-
ture and arrival informa-
tion. Nassau is a premier he
destination,.we could at ,
least put up an information
board. Every time I go to the .
airport to pick someone up I '
have to ask the people where they
coming from. Whoever in charge of
the airport need to deal with that --because
this doesn't make sense.

As part of the process to
rebuild an industry that stood
head and shoulders above its
nearest competitors, the Min-
istry of tourism has launched
a programme to overhaul the
island's amenities and attrac-
1ions. They are also ib Ibe
process of developing a pro-
gramme that will see new
community street signs and
sq nspointingthe wa y to
attractions and popular spots
go up.
Mr Harrison told Tribune
Travel that he welcomes the
entire. Bahamas to visit
Eleurbera. the island of free-
dom, w here n all started. "
"It's very impor rant that
they come and see what is
happening in Eleuthera, South

Eleuthera and the other com-
munities see theopportum-
ties that have been presented
and that will encourage a great
entrepreneurial spirit, because
that helps to maintain the
character of the destination,"
said Thomas Sands, director
of sales for the new Cotton
He further encouraged
those Eleutherans who are liv-
ing on other islatids, to return
and begin investing in their
home, their future and their

Mrs Kimes asked friends not

INTEREST in the ever-fas-

documentary about the case,
called Murder in Paradise.
Millions watched the peak-
time Channel Four pro-
gramme, which provided con
flitting theories in what has
been called the 20th century's
greatest 'Whodunnit?'
Sir Harry was murdered on
the night of July 7-8, 1943, at
his Nassau home, Westbourne.
Speculation about his killer has
circulated among crime buffs
ever since-
The Channel Four documen-
tary focused on the line of a
book, A Serpent in Eden, pub~
listed last year by London
lawyer-cum-journalist James
Several Nassau personalities
were interviewed for the film,
including attorney Paul Adder-
ley, historian Dr Gail Saunders
and The Tribune's John Mar"
quis, whose own book
about the case, Blood and
Fire, was published last Christ-
Yesterday, British viewers
declared the documentary "fas-
cinating", saying it gave an
interesting feel of Nassau life.
One, Rhys Oldfield, enjoyed
it, but said the story-line con-
centrated too much on Owen's
Another viewer said: "It por-
trayed the Bahamas as a coun-
try of intrigue, which ought to
be good for tourism, I sup-
London barrister Piers Mar-
quis, son of The Tribune's
managing editor, said: "I \vas
very proud to see my old man
being anti-establishment on .
Channel Fpur last night."
And a Scottish viewer who
knows Nassau well declared
especially for people with an
interest in the Bahamas and
crime mysteries in general.
Press reviews were generally
favourable, with some London
weekend papers highlighting it
as a "pick of the day".

THE US State Department
is continuing to encourage
American citizens to apply for
passports as the January 23
start of the Western Hemi-
sphere Travel Initiative
During November, the CBS
television network ran a two
week advertisement on its elec-
tronic billboard screen on 42nd
Street in Times Square, New
York City that displayed four
images with the WHTI mes-
sage, compliments of staff from
encNew York Passport
The ads compliment other
efforts being made by the US
government to encourage citi-
zens to get passports for travel
in the Western Hemisphere.
Beginning January 23, 2007, *
citizens of the United States,
Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda
will be required to present a
passport to enter (or re-enter)
the United States when arriv-
ing by air from any part of the
Western Hemisphere.
Currently, American citizens
need only show proof of citi-
zenship and identity for
air travel to the United
States from the Western Hemi-
Earlier this week, local offi-
cials announced that there has
been a jump in the number of
passport applications by US cit-
izens in the last six weeks, indi-
cating that the "potential fall-
out" from the new initiative
ma be miti ated.
Tourism Director General
Vernice Walkine said: "What
we re being told by the Depart-
ment of State is that the US
media is getting the word out
and Americans are becoming
more aware of the need for a
passport. They are applying
and there's been a jump in the
number of applications over
the last six weeks."
According to Ms Walkine,
preparations have also been
made in the US to handle an
influx of passport applications

MA BELLBOARD gets the message across

that may be the result of belat-
ed realisations m January that
travel will not be permitted
without a passport.
The m1mstry has been work-
ing with associates in the
tourism industry to raise aware-
ness among travellers, as some
will have to make extra prepa-
rations for their trips abroad.
"We are hopeful, though,
that all of the initiatives that
have been undertaken by our-
selves, our hotel partners, our
airhne partners and even the
cruise Imes will put the .ime s -
ican coilsum$r iii the p than

to appreciate that they do need
a passport in order to return
to the US after coming to the
Bahamas for a vacation," said
Ms Walkme.
To offset a devastating
tourism downturn that some
regional experts have predicted
nught result from the imtiative,
some resorts have been offer-
ing discounts and refunds ill an
effort to lure visitors for
example, offering to pay the
cost of a passport if a tourist
can show that the Bahamas is
their first port of entry using
thernew document.

And he added: "I want to contribute as a mem-

Workshops were needed to "hone the craft" of
film-making, he said.
Earlier, Sir Sean had described Mr Cage as "a
real pro", adding: "He brings to the table what
makes it (film-making) a real joy."
Festival founder Leslie Vanderpool called Mr
Cage "one of Hollywood's brightest stars and a
consummate professional."

SIR Sean Connery last night called for gov-

Other peculiarities came to
light. One of these was the
$5,000 discrepancy between
the cost of construction and

from contractors through-

In fact, Mr Wisdom said

The other swimmers at the meet representing the
Bahamas were Jeremy Knowles, Alana Dillette, Nikia
Deveaux, Teisha Lightbourne, Alicia Lighthourne, McK-
ayla Lightbourne, Jenna Chaplin, Jade Thompson, Ariel
Weech, and Anthaya Rolle.
The meet was a fast andlarge nicet with sorite 1,000
swimmers including several World record holders and
Olympic..Ghampions. Because of the size of the kneet
the heats were run as an A and B flight.
The A flight.being the top six entered heats which
were run first and the B flight being the remaining heats
which were run after the A flightinaking for shorter
waits at (be pool for most swimmers.
Jeremy Knowles made the C finalin the 2001M, the B
final in the 100 fly, and the A final in the 200 fly where the
finished 6th in a 2:01.60.
The event was won by Michael Phelps in 1:55.7 who is

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Stop worrying about what you can't
change, Aries. Focus your attention
on those things that are in your con-
trol, like your finances. Start saving
for a big purchase.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Hold onto your hate Taurus; things
are going to be a whirlwind this
week. Many people will be vying for
your time, and you'll need to sched-
ule most of them in.
GEMINI Ma 22/Jun 21
Think hard before you give a friend
e ouyou vo d our
have an ulterior motive? Don't cause
added problems'
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Things are looking up, Cancer. You
just need to hang m there a little while
longer to nde out a storm that has been
brewmg. Friends and family are a con-
tmued source of support.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You can't always get what you want,
Leo, but this week things seem to
fall into place. Your every desire is
granted, almost as if a fairy god-
mother is watching over you.

for you this week, Virgo. Before
jumping inito a new relationship,
. examine all the sides.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Your romantic partifer thinks a break
is in order, Libra. You're not that
inclined to agree, but will go ahead

versations peaceful.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
You have a new outlook on life,
Scorpion, and it's a positive one.
Things seem awfully manageable

Mediation is no longer an option
for a relationship that cannot be
salvaged, Sagittarius. Cut your ties
and do so quickly. The neater the
loose ends the better.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You've been the center of a conflict
between two people, Capricorn.
While you thought you were actmg
correctly, you've actually been self
ish in your pursuits.
