vintage theme

The Marianna Christ-
mas Parade and Winter-
fest will be held Dec. 6
this year, and the theme
of the celebration is "A
Vintage Christmas."
There is no target time
frame in that descrip-
tion, and thee open-ended
nature of the theme is by
design. It's meant to give
parade participants and
others who dress up for
the day an opportunity
to tap into any era they
wish. They could dip into
their childhood memo-
ries or go all the way
back to Charles Dickens
and the Victorian age

Street Marianrla Director
Charlotte Brunner.

"They can take that
and go anywhere with it,"
she said. "We think that

could lead to a very inter-
esting, very colorful, and
very inventive parade for
the crowd to enjoy." She's
hoping families, church-
,es, youth -groups, civic
organizations and busi-
nesses will sign on soon
Ao participate and let
their creativity run free
as they contemplate their
float and costume deco-
rations. She's also hoping
large number of church
choirs will sing Christ-
mas carols as they travel
in the parade. She will
have parade announcers
stationed in front of Con-
federate Park on U.S; 90
to describe what they see
as the parade wends its
way through that area.
The entry fee to, enter

According to an MPD

was taken into custody,

in reference to several
reward cards that were
delivered in error to
his business, which is
located on Lafayette

Please consider two
impressive, verifiable
facts about women,
finance and investing:
"Over the next decade,
women will control two-
thirds of consumer wealth
in the United States and
be the beneficiaries of
the largest transference
of wealth in our country's
history. Estimates range
from $12 to $40 trillion.
Many Boomer women
will experience a double
inheritance windfall,
from both parents and

many are just now starting
to immerse themselves in
the investment process.
And statistics show that
many more husbands
than wives still handle the
family investments.
A Wall Street Journal
article by Susan Thomas
entitled "The Rise of the

Female Investor" pur-
ports thai most women
don't have the time or the
inclination to coordinate
famih investment ac-
counts. " are still
more likely than women
to take the lead with the
family financial account."
says Thomas. "Accord-
ring to a recent study .19
percent of wives said they
took control of financial
decision making, versus
38 percent of husbands.
Among female breadwin-
ners, 20 percent said they
were 'very well prepared'
to make wise financial
decisions, compared with
45 percent of their male
Thomas also quotes

a recent stuch that 'has
found that women differ
substantially from men in
how they relate to invest-
ing. They don't want to
hear about.. growth or
comparative performance
of different funds; they
want information about
reaching their long-term
goals, like purring a kid
through college.
Having advised male
and female investors both
singularly and as couples
for 18 years, I think it's
difficult to generalize or
stereotype. Each investor
is different, regardless of
gender. That said, it seems
certain that by neces-
sity women are becoming
and will become more

familiar with investing.
And it's certainly prefer-
able that women engage
the process prior to the
passing of a spouse, es-
pecially one who handled
all family finances. Many
husbands will establish a
relationship with a trusted
investment advisor for the
express purpose of easing
the financial transition for
their spouse if the hus-
band passes away first
Some statistical stud-
ies show that women are
more risk averse than
men. Ironically, the big-
gest single determinant of
risk tolerance that I experi-
ence as an advisor is not
gender, but age. Both gen-
ders generally exhibit less

risk tolerance as the%, grow
older, as they have less
time to make up for drastic
market downturns. This
age-based diminished risk
tolerance is not always
applicable, of course, as
each investor is different,
but generally age and not
gender has had a greater
impact on risk aversion.

So sorry -apologies really do matter

In the health exchange website
debacle, Washington has moved
through denial, anger and
finger pointing. Now we've hit the
apology stage.
On Wednesday, Kathleen Sebe-
lius, the secretary of health and
human services, called the online
marketplace where people were
supposed to be able to compare
and buy insurance easily start-
ing Oct. 1 "a miserably frustrat-
*ing experience for way too many
"You deserve better," she said at
a House Energy and Commerce
Committee hearing. "I apologize."
And when the terrier from Ten-
nessee, Republican Rep. Marsha
Blackburn, snapped at Sebelius,
asking who was responsible for
the mess, Sebelius said, "Hold me
accountable for the debacle. I'm
A day earlier, Marilyn Tavenner, .
administrator of the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services,
the agency responsible for setting
up-the online marketplaces, also
apologized. -
"To the millions of Americans
who've attempted to use Health-, to shop and enroll in
health care coverage, I want to
apologize to you that the Web
site has not worked as well as it
should," Tavenner said at a House
Ways and.Means Committee
President Barack Obama, while
stopping short of an actual apol-
ogy, has said "nobody is madder
than me." He apparently can't
brake for pronouns at a time like
Seriously, the president must
be mad at himself for letting this
fiasco befall his signature legisla-


tive achievement. It's his legacy at
stake. Obama struck a confident
note'Wednesday in Boston, insist-
ing that the rollout problems are
solvable. A lot is riding on whether
the website is running smoothly
Nov. 30, as promised,
In his speech atTFaneuil Hall,,
Obama sought to clear up con-
fusion about his oft-repeated
promise that people could keep
their insurance under the new
system. Some people'who buy
health insurance on the individual
market have received cancellation
notices. Obama explained that a
few policies fail to meet consumer
protection standards in the health
law, but the people will be eligible
for better coverage and'possibly for
premium subsidies.
Typically, embattled public fig-
ures follow the old legal advice to
doctorsfacing malpractice claims:
"Defend and deny.", Testifying
before Congress, the lawyered-iip
contractors who engineered the
troubled marketplace avoided
showing even a smidgen of
remorse. -
When a top-level public servant
like Sibelius has'the wit to apolo-
gize and sound sincere, she con-
veys the sense that she gets it, that
she knows real people are being
hurt by her agencyWs ineptitude.
Don't get me wrong. An apol-
ogy manyapbolgies from

Washington won't shorten anyone's,
wait on or pay the
insurance premium. People want
results; they want their govern-
ment to work.
At the same time, though, people
should realize that Obamacare is a
moving political target.
"We did not wage this long and
contentious battle just around a
website," the president says. As
rocky as the rollout of the exchang-
es has been, the president insists,
the Affordable Care Act is already
working to make insurance more
readily available and affordable.
That, of course, won't satisfy the
law's foes.
Obama repeatedly says he'll work
with anyone who wants to fix the
law, but congressional Republicans
have no interest in mending it. If
it's not the website,-it's the canceled
policies or the cost of premiums or
something else. The GOP needs to
be accountable too.
Where, Republicans, is your
long-promised alternative to the
health law? Let us see it or help
fix what's broken.
A president saves his apologies
for big moments. He apologized.
Oct. 8, during the government
shutdown, for the unfolding fiscal
dramas in Washington.
; "To all the American people: I
apologize," he said, but he couldn't
resist turning the apology into a
rebuke,, saying what he needs to
do is to break his foes of their bad
habits mi negotiations.
An apology is not a solution,
but it is a start. It takes guts to say
you're sorry. Who'll be next?

Tax-credit scandal bad omen for Obamacare

Under Obamacare, the In-
ternal Revenue Service will
determine who is eligible
for health insurance subsidies, and
it will deliver those subsidies, in the
form of tax credits, to millions of in-
dividual Americans. It's a huge job, -
and a critical one, involving hun-
dreds of billions of taxpayer dollars.
So it should go without saying that
the subsidies go only to people who
actually qualify for them. But a new
scandal within the IRS casts serious
doubt on whether that will happen.
The scandal involves a program
known as the Earned Income Tax
Credit. It is an anti-poverty program
in whith the government gives low-
income workers a tax refund larger
than their tax liability. For example,
a family with a $1,000 income tax
- liability might qualify for a credit
four times that large, and receive an
Earned Income Tax Credit payment
of $4,000. Another family with no
income tax liability at all might
qualify for the same lump-sum
The government sends out be-
tween $60 billion and $70 billion a
year in Earned Income Tax Credit
payments. Now, a new IRS inspec-
tor general's report shows that a
huge amount of that- anywhere
between 21 and 30 percent, de-
pending on the year has been
given out improperly to recipients
who do not qualify for the payment
The inspector general estimates
that somewhere between $110 bil-
lion and $132 billion has been given
away in improper Earned Income
Tax Credit payments in the last
It's long been known that the
IRS throws taxpayer dollars away
through tax credits. President


Obama, who has sought to expand.
the Earned IncomeTax Credit pro-
gram, in 2009 signed an executive
order entitled "Reducing Improper
Payments and EliminatingWaste
in Federal Programs" that required
the IRS to come up with annual
"improper payment reduction tar-
gets." That was four years ago. It still
hasn't been done.
Don't look for it to be done
anytime soon. IRS officials told the -
inspector general that the program
was too complicated to administer
correctly, and even if it were less
complicated, they would not want
rigorous enforcement measures
to discourage legitimately quali-
fied people from applying for the
credit In the words of the inspector
general's report: "The IRS cited the
complexity of the Earned Income
Tax Credit program as well as the
need to balance the reduction in
improper payments while still
encouraging individuals to use the
credit as the two main reasons why
reduction targets have not been.'
Given that, inspector general Rus-
sell George concluded, "The IRS is
unlikely to achieve any significant
reduction in Earned Income Tax
Credit improper payments." So,
look for billions more to be wasted
in improper payments this year.
And next year. And so on.

This is the very same IRS that will
administer Obamacare's subsidies
and penalties. Does anyone doubt
that in coming years the IRS will
use the same excuses -'complex-
ity, a desire not to discourage
qualified recipients to explain
its lack of enforcement, or perhaps
refusal to enforce, Obamacare's
The process has already begun.
Back in July, the Obama administra-
tiori announced it will not require
state-run Obamacare exchanges
to verify whether individuals who
receive subsidies for health cover-
age are actually qualified for those
subsidies. The administration will
rely instead on an honor system in
which it accepts an applicant's word
that he or she is eligible a deci-
sion many analysts call an invita-
tion to fraud.
In September, the Republican-
controlled House passed a bill to
require verification for all subsidies.
This month, a much weakened ver-
sion of that proposal became part
of the settlement of the government
shutdown. But the bottom line is,
don't expect the federal government
to do much checking on who is
receiving subsidies.
Right now the public debate over
Obamacare is consumed by news of
the exchange website's failures. It's
a serious situation that could have
a long-lasting effect on the system.
But at some point the administra-
tion will fix its technical problems.
And then the news can move on to
the next stage of Obamacare dys-
function like a new scandal with
the IRS and subsidy payments.

Datafest organizer Te-

sought to help journalists
become less afraid of big

athons are also a moment
for those who usually work
in very different fields to
come together and show
off what they do.
"Mostpeople have atech-
nical background, since
without them you can't do
anything, but it's also really
important to have people
who know the problem,
because the developers are
really good with the coding
but may not understand
the issues," Bouza said.!

Facebook and Microsoft
have become increasingly
vocal advocates of com-
prehensive immigration
reform, including mea-

sures to adjust the status
of the roughly 11 million
people living in the coun-

diate interest lies in mak-

H'ackathons give stu-

hackathons tend to draw a

more diverse group, which
leads to more diverse ways
of considering problems
- and ultimately more in-
novation, she added.
Andrew Suciu is among
those helping to organize
the weekend's event at
Stanford. The computer
science graduate student,
whose own researchhas in-

said he was drawn to the
Datafest because he'd like
to see more computer sci-
ence research dedicated to
solving social issues rather
than building million-dol-
lar apps.
Bouza, who is the deputy
bureau chief for EFE in
Washington, previously

created Datafests to exam-
ine campaign finance and
money in politics. Those
hackathons produced
visual apps connecting
companies, the issues they
back and the politicians
they support; an electroni-

Rogello Alejandro Lo-

UndocuTech at MIT, said
there is a notion that youth,

particularly activists, are
tech-savvy, but that much
of what they produce is
surprisingly conventional.
"There are a lot of folks
using tech and media," he
said, "but it's keeping up

partner with Florida and
more than 270,000 Japa-
nese tourists visit the state
each year. There are an es-
timated 119 Japanese com-
panies employing 20,000
people located in the Sun-

"Florida is undoubtedly
the number one tourist
and business destination

Sticker shock follows cancellation | -

liked the health insurance
he purchased for himself
and his wife three years
ago and thought he'd be
able to keep the plan even
after the federal Affordable
Care Act took effect-
But the 64-year-old re-
cently received a letter
notifying him the plan was
being canceled because it
didn't cover certain ben-
efits required under the
The Griffins, who live
near Philadelphia, pay
$770 monthly for 'their
health care plan with a
$2,500 deductible. The
cheapest plan they found
on their state insurance
exchange was a so-called
bronze plan charging a
$1,275 monthly premium
with deductibles totaling
$12,700. It covers only pro-
viders in Pennsylvania, so
the couple, who live near
Delaware, won't be able to
see doctors they've used
for more than a decade.
"We're buying insurance
that we will never use and
can't possibly ever benefit
from. We're basically pass-
ing on a benefit to other
people who are not other-
wise able to buy basic in-
surance," said Griffin, who
is retired from running an
information technology
The Griffins are among
millions of. people na-
tionwide who buy indi-
vidual insurance policies
and are receiving notices
that those policies are be-
ing discontinued because
they don't meet. the higher
benefit requirements of
the new law.
They can buy different
policies directly from in-
surers for 2014 or sign up
for plans on state insur-
ance exchanges. While

enings when they access
the websites and realize
they'll have to pay signifi-
cantly more.
Those not eligible for
subsidies generally receive
more comprehensive cov-
erage than they had under
their soon-to-be-canceled
policies, but they'll have to
pay a lot more.
Because of the higher
cost, the Griffins are con-
sidering paying the federal
penalty about $100 or
1 percent of income next
year rather than buy-
ing health insurance. They
say they are healthy and
don't typically run up large
health care costs. Dean
Griffin said that will be
cheaper because it's un-
likely they will get past the
nearly $13,000 -deductible
for the coverage to kick in.
Individual health insur-
ance policies are being
canceled-because the Af-
fordable Care Act requires
plans to cover certain ben-
efits,' such as maternity
care, hospital visits and
mental illness. The law
also caps annual,, out-of-
pocket costs consumers,
will pay, each year.
In the past, consum-
ers could get relatively
inexpensive, bare-bones

coverage, but those plans
will no longer be avail-
able. Many consumers are
frustrated by what they
call forced upgrades as
they're pushed into plans
with coverage options they
don't necessarily want.
Ken Davis, who manages
a fast food restaurant in
Austin, Texas, is recovering
from sticker shock after
the small-business policy
offered by his employer
was canceled for the same
reasons individual policies-
are being discontinued.
His company pays about
$100 monthly for his ba-
sic health plan. He said
he'll now have to pay $600
monthly for a mid-tier sil-
ver plan on the state ex-
change. The family policy
also covers his 8-year-old
son. Even though the fed-
eral government is con-
tributing a $500 subsidy,
he said the $600 he's left to
pay is too high. He's con-
sidering the penalty.
"I feel like they're forcing
me to'do something that I
don't want to do or need to
do," Davis, 40, said.
Owners of canceled poli-
cies have a few options.
They can stay in the same
plan for, the same price
for one more' year if they

have one of the few plans
that were grandfathered
in. They can buy a similar
plan with upgraded ben-
efits that meets the new
standards -likely at a cost
increase. Or, if they make
less than $45,960 for -a
single adult or $94,200 for
a family of four, they may
qualify for subsidies.
Just because a policy
doesn't comply with the
law doesn't mean consum-
ers will get cancellation
letters. They may get no-
tices saying existing poli-
cies are being amended
with new benefits and will
come with higher premi-
ums. Some states, includ-
ing Virginia and Kentucky,
required insurers to cancel
old policies and start from
scratch instead of beefing
up existing ones.
It's unclear how many
individual plans are being
canceled. But it's likely in
the millions. Insurance
industry experts estimate
that about 14 million peo-
ple, or 5 percent of the to-'
tal market for health care
coverage, buy individual

mer Republican governor-
turned Democrat Charlie
Crist took the first step Fri-
day toward attempting to
reclaim his old job with a
new party, paving the way
for a bitter contest that will
be one of the most watched
in the nation.
Crist filed paperwork to
get in the race and is now
the front-runner to rep-
resent Democrats against
Republican Gov. Rick
Scott, one of the most un-
popular chief executives in
the country. Scott, though,
will be well-financed and is
expected to spend as much
as $25 million in attack ads
against Crist.
For Crist, he is hoping
to revive a political career
that seemingly crashed
when he left the GOP and
lost an independent run
for U.S. Senate to Republi-
can Marco Rubio in 2010.
Crist has a 10 a.m. event
scheduled in a park near
his St. Petersburg home to
kick off his campaign.
"I'm looking forward to
Monday and making it offi-
cial in everyway," Crist said
Friday. "I just hope that the
message that we deliver
will lift Florida's spirits and
let her know that there's a
brighter future tomorrow.
And it's coming."
There was little-doubt he
was getting into the race.
He has been preparing a
team of advisers and has
set up a website for the
potential campaign. His
addresses to Democratic
groups have increasingly
sounded like campaign

for a year, he's finally an-
nounced and I think every-
body knew he was going to
do this."
If he succeeds, it will be
an amazing turnaround
for the person who many
thought could be 2008
GOP presidential nomi-
nee John McCain's running
mate, if not a Republican
presidential candidate in
his own right.
Republicanshave pound-
ed Crist for months antici-
pating the announcement,
calling him a political op-
portunist who will say and
do anything to remain po-
litically relevant.
"He wanted to be in D.C.
a couple of years ago, that's
where he wanted to solve
all the world's problems,
and now he feels he wants
to be back as governor
without any good reason,"
said Lenny Curry, chair-
man of Florida's Republi-
can Party. "Rick Scott has
a record of success to run
on and Charlie has a life-
long 'It's all about Charlie'
to run on."
Grist's ability to connect
with people has often been
compared to that of former
President Bill Clinton.

Marianna fell to 1-2 in the dis-

another closely contested dis-

East Gadsden 27-25 on Oct. 4.
It was a tough loss for the
Bulldogs, who continued their
season-long trend of being wry
competitive with the best teams
on the schedule but not being
able to close it out in the fourth

Despite the loss, first-year Mar-

was happy with the way his play-

way they progressed throughout

Vernon clinches

district with

win over Pirates


The Sneads Pirates' dreams of making their first
trip to tie postseason since 2003 were denied
Friday night by the Vernon Yellowjackets, who
took a 35-19 win in Sneads to clinch the District 2
With the win, Vernon finished the league season
a perfect 4-0, with Sneads falling to 2-2 and ending
up in third place in the district standings behind
the 3-1 Cottondale Hornets, who beat Graceville on
Friday to clinch'the runner-up spot.
It was a disappointing result for the Pirates, who
had high hopes following back-to-back district
wins over Graceville and Wewahitchka last month,
but coach Bill Thomas said he was satisfied with
what his players gave him all season.
"I told them before the game and I told them af-
ter that, win or lose, I was proud of their effort this
year. They're still great kids and a good ball team.
We just fell short a couple of plays," he said.,"A lot
of times when you get in, tight ballgames, the team
with more experience pulls it out. I just wish that
we could take back a few plays."
Things couldn't have gotten off to a rockier start
for the Pirates on Friday when Vernon took the
opening kickoff all the way for a touchdownto take
a 7-0 lead.
But Sneads answered right back with a scoring
drive of its own, with Antwan Durn scoring from 4
yards outto tie it up.
Veron led 14-7 after one quarter, but the Pirates
responded with a punt return touchdown by Javar-
ris Goodson with 2:41 left in the second period to

No. 24 Michigan St batters

No. 23 Michigan 29-6

The Associated Press

EAST LANSING, Mich. Shilique Cal-
houn, Ed Davis and the rest of Michigan
State's defense battered rival Michigan
on Saturday, and the No. 24 Spartans
remained unbeaten in the Big Ten with
a 29-6 victory over the 23rd-ranked
Michigan State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) has
won five of the last six meetings with the
Wolverines, and this was the Spartans'
most lopsided win in the series since
1967. They held, Michigan (6-2, 2-2) to
minus-48 yards rushing, the worst out-
put in the Ann Arbor program's history.
Connor Cook threw for a touchdown
and ran for one, but this game belonged
to Michigan State's defense, which so-
lidified its spot among the nation's best
with an overwhelming performance on
a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium.
Calhoun and Davis each had'2 Vi sacks.
Michigan State is ranked No. 1 in the
nation in total defense, and the Spartans
looked positively dominating for most
of the, game. Michigan quarterback
Devin Gardner was sacked four times
in the first quarter, and things only got
worse for the Wolverines on one drive in
the second.
On first down from the Michigan
State 49,?, a shotgun snap sailed over

Gardner's head for a loss of 20. After a
sack on third down and a Michigan pen-
alty, the Wolverines finally punted on
Thanks to the sacks and that bad snap,
Michigan finished the first half with mi-
nus-41 yards rushing. The Wolverines'
best hope was for Gardner to look for big
chunks of yardage on deep passes. He
completed a few, including a 58-yarder
to Jehu Chesson that set up a field goal
in the second quarter.
With the score tied at 6, Michigan
State's slumbering offense finally broke
through, driving 75 yards on 10 plays
for the game's first touchdown. It came
on a 14-yard pass from Cook to Bennie
Fowler with 23 seconds left in the half.
Fowler's sliding catch came in the
same back comer of the end zone where
he was unable to hold onto a potential
touchdown pass earlier in the quarter.
The second half was more of the same.
Michael Geiger's third field goal of the
day made it 16-6, and the Wolverines
were stuck deep in their own territory
for much of the third quarter.
Michigan finally caught a break when
CookIs pass was intercepted by Raymon
Taylor, giving the Wolverines the ball
at,the Michigan State 41. But that only
gave the Spartans another chance to
shine on defense.

The Associated Press

sonville Jaguars receiver
Justin Blackmon has been
suspended indefinitely
without pay for another
violation of the NFL's sub-
stance-abuse policy.
Blackmon was previous-
ly suspended the first fourth
games of this season for
violating the policy.
So this is at least his
third violation in about 18
months. And the Jaguars
are acknowledging -he has
a problem.
"All of us who are a part
of the Jaguars family care
very deeply about Justin
and his well-being," gener-
al manager Dave Caldwell
said in a statement. "That
said, he must be held ac-
countable and accept the
consequences announced
today by the NFL
"His suspension will pro-
vide him the opportunity
to receive the attention
and professional treatment
necessary to overcome his
challenges, and we will
support him during this
time. The Jacksonville Jag-
uars will evaluate Justin's
status once he has suc-
cessfully met the criteria
to be considered for rein-
statement to the league."
Blackmon's suspension
begins immediately. He
will be eligible to apply for
reinstatement prior to the
start of the 2014 season.
Since the winless Jaguars
(0-8). aren't on the hook
for the rest of Blackmon's
salary this season they
also might try to void what
remains on his rookie con-
tract they could keep
him on the roster in hopes
he turns his life .-around.
After all, the troubled re-
ceiver has proven to be
talented in two seasons.
Blackmon has 29 recep-
tions for 415 yards and a
touchdown this year. He
has 93 catches for 1,280
yards and six scores in 20
games all since Jackson-
ville traded up to select the
former Oklahoma State
star with the fifth overall
pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Blackmon credited his
four-game suspension
Jfor ahis success this sea-

son, saying he Used the
time away to get in better
He also acknowledged last
month that his reputation
was still a work in progress.
"I just don't really care
about people on the 0ut-
side," Blackmon said: "I
don't care what they got to
say. I don't really care how
they view me because they
don't try to know me. They
won't ever know me, so
that's not important to me.
They can feel however they
want to feel. I don't really
care about that.
"All I can do is control
what I can control, and
that's showing up here, try-
ing to get better every day
and carrying that out there
on the field."

Dear Annie: I am a stepmom to two
wonderful little boys under the age of 4. 1
treat therp the same as my own children.
The problem is their mother. "Carla" acts
as if I am the wicked witch. I know it is
hard to let another woman care for your
children. I have assured her numerous
times that I am not out to take her place.
She is their mother and always will be.
Two years ago, the children were
removed from her home due to anger
issues and drug abuse. She had some
counseling and now shares joint custody
with their father. But if I happen to run
intG Carla when she is with the boys, she
causes a huge scene, yelling and cussing
at me if the boys say hello. She has sent
me awful text messages and threaten-
ing Facebook posts. I always try to be
the bigger person and ignore her, but
it's hard. I have had to call the police
numerous times when I felt she was a
danger to my children or me. ,
My husband tries to keep the peace
because no one knows what Carla is
capable of I feel she is unstable. The
youngest son has minor surgery sched-
uled, and Carla told my husband I better
not show up at the hospital. As a step-
mom, what am I to do?
Dear Stepmonm It doesn't sound as
if Carla's counseling was sufficient to
.overcome her anger issues. She is a loose
cannon and could be dangerous. Please
keep records of her threatening texts and
posts in case your husband chooses to
fight the custody arrangement. We. un-
derstand that he fears rocking the boat,
and there is no simple solution. Some-
times the best thing is just to stay out of
the way and be as non-confrontational
as possible. That includes not going to
the hospital. Have your husband convey
your' good wishes to your stepson. Also
try the National Stepfamily Resource
Center ( for a support
group in your area.

Dear Annie: I was adopted as an in-
fant. I am now in my early 20s and am

interested in contacting my birth family.
I know my birth mother's name from a
letter she wrote me, in which she asked
me to contact her if I ever wanted to. It
wasn't hard to find her or her family. I
even found the Facebook pages of my
older half-siblings who know about me-
By perusing those pages, I learned my
birth mother died 10 years ago. I want
to make contact with my biological
family, but I don't know if they shared
my mother's wish to meet me. I don't
want to cause them any pain, and I don't
want to overstep any boundaries. Doing
this through Facebook seems tacky, and
the only address I have is for my bio
mother's sister. Isn't it more appropriate
to contact my grandmother first? How
should I proceed?
Dear Adopted: You are overqhinking
this. Send a letter to your bio mother's
sister. Tell her about yourself and that
you'd like to establish contact Say you
want to get to know your grandmother
and half-siblings, but do not wish to
intrude. If you do not hear anything
back within a month, it is OK to contact
your half-siblings via Facebook. If there
is still rjo response, it means they are not

Dear Annie: This is for "Stressed Out
by Picky Eaters," whose family makes
holidays more difficult with their various
dietary demands.
Why not have them cook with her in
her kitchen? This way, they can each pre-
pare a side dish they know they will love
and share it with their family. Instead of
being resentful, they will create many
memories along with all the great food.'

In "Rosericrantz and Guildenstem
Are Dead," Tom Stoppard pointed out:
"Eternity's a terrible thought. I mean,
where's it all going to end?"
In today's deal, the trump split is ter-
rible and seems to end declarer's chance
of making six hearts. But he can survive.
West leads the spade queen. South wins
with his ace and cashes the heart ace
to get the bad news. How must declared
It is rare that an auction starting one of
a major two of a major ends in a slam.
However, that South hand is very strong.
When South rebid three clubs, North
assumed this was a help-suit game-try.
and jumped to four hearts because he
had'a good club' holding and a maxi-
mum aces are wonderful" South then
carefully employed Blackwood before
bidding the small slam.
It seems as though South must lose two
trump tricks. But if South can reich an
ending with the king-jack of hearts and
a loser, while West still has his last three
trumps, West can be trapped.
,To achieve this ending, South must
ruff three diamonds in his hand and find
West with exactly 3-4-4-2 distribution., .
At trick three, declarer plays a diamond
to dummy's ace. He continues with a
diamond ruff in his hand, the club king,

"The front line did an
