Peoples Bank celebrates its 40th anniversary

Morning reception

scheduled Friday
Peoples Bank of Graceville is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a public reception on Friday from 9-11 a.m. It's at 5603 Brown St. Unique in that it is one of the few - and perhaps the only - remaining independent banks in the near region, it has a customer base that includes multiple generations of families who have done business with the institution since it first opened. As a result, bank officials hope to see a fair share of grandparents, parents and children come in together that day to celebrate with them. One of their visitors from that set of'multigenerational customers might be the county's top fire official. When Jackson County Fire Rescue Chief Scott Birge was about 3 years old, in the fledgling years of the Peoples Bank of Graceville, he got a kegstyle wooden bank that the bank had

given out as a promotional item after it opened its doors in 1974. Birge used it throughout his childhood to save his allowance, birthday money and any cash that came his way through summer chores or other means. His family moved out of town as he grew a little older, but his bank traveled with him in that move and others as he got out on his own. He used it in adulthood, too. And it was among the items he packed to take home when he moVed back to Jackson County recently to take on the job of county fire chief. Its style was perfect to fuel the imagination of an adventurous youngster, but it's even more than an exciting childhood treasure to Birge. It's a reminder of a life lesson that his parents taught him, recalled especially vividly in memories of conversations with his mother. He remembers that he got the bank during the bicentennial year of 1976. He asked his mother what "bicentennial" meant, and what all the fuss was about as the nation celebrated it with parades and all manner of events. She explained about the founding

of the country and all that it meant. So with the bank freshly in his hands at that time, it's tied to his sense of patriotism.
But it's also tied to a personal principle that his mother taught him
- the value of living as a trustworthy person.
When his mom would talk to him about this ideal, she sometimes told him about how his grandfather's upstanding reputation helped him in dealing with People's Bank of Graceyile. Whenever "Granddaddy" needed to borrow money for his farming operation, his handshake and his signature were always good for the loan, she told her son.
Birge says the lesson stuck. It was a value he said he's tried to live by. The keg bank has been a constant reminder of its importance. And when he moved back to Jackson County several months ago, Birge experienced one of the paybacks for conducting his life in a way that would be pleasing to his mother. Because he and his extended

Scott Birge recalls receiving this Peoples Bank of Graceville barrel bank when he was 3 or 4 years old. His son, 14-year-old Case Birge, now uses it. The item was one of several customer giveaways that the bank used as promotional materials after it opened in 1974.

Days to celebrate

he people of the
United States are known for having
great holidays and celebrations. During
this Fourth
of July
there will be
parades, barThomas becues, conVincent certs, picnics Murphy and family reunions. During each year we have an opportunity or choice to celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Halloween and more. Because of some religious or personal beliefs, some of our citizens choose not to participate in certain events, but living in a country that has freedom of choice is even a reason to celebrate. The holidays are some of the loneliest times for some of our senior citizens and the elderly, and if possible, spending time with them will definitely brighten up their lives.
While it's nice to enjoy celebrations, some people use holidays as a good

reason to drink alcohol heavily, indulge in illegal drug activities, take advantage of others and increase their criminal activities. Keep in mind the fact that older citizens are often the targets of criminals.
While many of us are relaxing, enjoying delicious food and having fun, others are planning illegal activities that could affect any of us at such a vulnerable time. Being careful and aware of our surroundings is a good thing.
If we travel, remember that the most dangerous time on our highways can be during the holidays when millions of people drink and drive. Criminals have their own reasons to look forward to the holidays. More money is being carried in our pockets and purses during holidays
- especially Christmas
- than at any other times of the year. During the time when people are the most upbeat and relaxed, is when unwanted surprises Scan take place. We should try to enjoy the holidays, but it's important to be aware of our surroundings and those around us.

Stocks, bonds, Kevin Costner and Charlie Rich

"Can't take it with you when you're gone... But I wantenough to get thereon."
"Rolling With the Flow"
Written by Jerry Hayes
and recorded by Charlie Rich
oday's markets are, as Kevin Costner
said in the 1991 film "JFK", "through the looking glass." What do we mean? Well, bonds (fixed income) have traditionally been considered a less-risky investment than equities (stocks). But currenitly, this is not necessarily true. It's an upsidedown investing world. Alice, it's your movein the Wonderland of Capital Markets.
, Historically, bonds are popular for many reasons. Bondholders are high on the "default ladder" and are paid before stockholders should a default occur. Second, when a bond matures, you get your original investment back, in addition to the yield you've

been paid throughout the life of the bond. Bonds have also been known traditionally for their stability: In good times and bad, bondholdMargaret ers of credit McDowell worthy institutions are paid
on time and their money is considered reasonably safe. Payments were made to owners of U.S. Treasurys even while the Civil War raged. Municipal bonds remain one of the few ways that high-wage earners can catch a tax break, since interest earned from "muni" bonds is not subject to federal tax. In years past; some investors even went so far as to create allbond portfolios. Currently, though, most investors are leaning to equities. Why? While equities certainly are more expensive than they were

even 18 months ago, many dividend-paying stocks are paying more than bonds when considered on an apples-to-apples basis, a comparison known as the "equityriskpremium."And some equities, like utilities (referred to as "widow and orphan" stocks) for instance, represent investments whose dividends are seen as. sound as the yields offered by some types of bonds. Another bond concern is that the face value of longer-dated debt will likely decline when the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, perhaps as early as next year. Naturally, an investor's financial objectives and risk tolerance should always be considered. Certain bond purchases may indeed successfully fill a fixed-income need in a portfolio, even in an economy in recovery amid a rising-interest-rate environment. Convertible bonds, highyield bonds, senior loans,

and bankloans are a few to consider. But the traditional 60 percent equities/40 percent bonds investment ratio that so many investors have utilized for years wasn't designed for this type of environment. Even "Bond King" Bill Gross of PIMCO declared an end to the 30-year bond bull market last year.
Equities are no longer cheap, but they aren't extrepely overvalued when compared to what bonds are offering these days. There are always underappreciated companies whose ,prices haven't risen with the rest of the market.

Our View

Chalk one up for privacy
ne credit card company, in an effort to saturate the marketplace with its brand, did so effectively with a campaign centered on the inquiry, "What's in your wallet?"
These days, a more important question might ask what's in your phone.
This week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that police don't have the authority to find out without a warrant. Until now, when police arrest someone, they've been able to examine the information in suspects' cellphones without a warrant.
Any reasonable person should agree that's wrong.
Contemporary cellphones contain all manner of information, much of which the owners may not be aware of. They not only contain information about who the owner called or received calls from, when the calls took place and how long they lasted and text messages, they can also contain data that can be used to determine where the phone has been, potentially revealing the owner's whereabouts whenever the device was powered on. There can be far more data as well, such as financial transactions, passwords and other information one wouldn't want out of his or her control.
The Supreme Court, in an overwhelming unanimous decision, agreed, extending the same Fourth Amendment protections that apply to homes and vehicles to cellphones: They cannot be searched without a warrant issued by a judge upon presentation of probable cause.
That's a victory for advocates of personal privacy, and the action will effectively disqualify as evidence any information officers glean from a cellphone without a warrant.
In these times of rapidly changing technology, legal underpinnings will usually lag behind new developments as society attempts to ensure that common-sense applications are supported by law.
Meanwhile, private citizens must protect themselves and keep sensitive information out of portable devices in case they fall into the wrong hands, which can be far worse than an unauthorized search by law enforcement.

pursuing land conservation. After a recessionary lull, the state's populatibn growth is returning to full throttle, making it critical to preserve valuable natural' areas. And that won't happen without the help of privateproperty owners.
The commission staffhas identified about 19 million acres of significant wildlife habitat on privately owned lands. By collaborating with landowners, the state could develop strategies to preserve habitat without threatening the landowners. Nobody understands the land like those who make their living from4it. And conservation can offer financial benefits. Hunters, for instance, routinely lease the hunting rights to ranch land. Some landowners capitalize on the increasing popularity. of "ecotourism," where people visit areas to canoe, bird-watch, hike, camp or otherwise enjoy nature. Important to the state's natural assets is the adoption of the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative (Amendment 1) in November. It would not increase taxes, but would dedicate 33 percent of documentary stamp tax revenue to land preservation. This was roughly the traditional amount spent on saving valuable environmental lands under the Florida Forever program until state lawmakers virtually abandoned the effort in recent years.
The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's approach to preserving the great Florida outdoors - and its recreational opportunities -is correct. Work with landowners - don't make enemies of them.

Supreme fight ahead over pregnant workers' rights

f you were outraged by the
Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby
decision, take a deep breath and get ready for the next battffle over women's rights.
A case that will affect millions of working women is on the Supreme Court docket for the term beginning Oct. 6. Young v. United Parcel Service will test the law prohibiting employment discrimination against pregnant women. And it's anybody's guess how this court will rule.
The essential issue in Young is
whether an employer who provides accommodations to some work-' ers with work limitations must also provide them to pregnant workers who are "similar in their ability or inability to work" The obvious answer: Yes, of course. It's been against the law for employers to discriminate against pregnant workers since the era of the Bee Gees, "Laverne & Shirley" and big hair.
Congress passed and President Jimmy Carter signed the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 in response to a boneheaded 1976 Supreme Court ruling that found discrimination on the basis of pregnancy was not sex discrimination but discrimination between pregnant and non-pregnant people. The pregnancy act says employers must treat a pregnant woman who is temporarily unable to perform her job the same war it treats other temporarily disabled employees. Despite the law, allegations of discrimination against pregnant workers persist more than 35 years later.
And now the Supreme Court is


getting involved.
PeggyYoung was a part-time "air" driver for United Parcel Service in Landover, Md., in 2006 when she took a leave of absence for in vitro fertilization treatments. She became pregnant, and her midwife said Young should not lift packages heavier than 20 pounds for the first 20 weeks of pregnancy and 10 pounds subsequently. Young wanted to return to work. As an air driver, she met an earlymorning shuttle from the airport and delivered letters and packages by 8:30 a.m. These packages cost more to send and tend to be lighter than other UPS packages, according to court documents. But her job description required that she be able to lift packages weighing 70 pounds. Young asked to return to her regular job or for light duty.
Her boss empathized but refused, saylngYoung was too much of a liability to work at her regular job and citing the company's policy to provide light duty only to employees injured on the job, to those who meet the criteria of disabled under the federal disability law or to those who lose their federal driver certificate.

UPS says its policies are "pregnancy neutral" and are specified in its collective bargaining agreement negotiated with the Teamsters. Young Was a member of the union. Young went on unpaid leave and lost her health insurance. She returned to work after the baby was born.
Contending she was treated differently from others temporarily unable to perform their jobs, she complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which authorized her to sue UPS.
UPS contends it treated Young "exactly the same wayit treats all employees - regardless of pregnancy- who are unable to perform essential functions of the job as a result of an off-the-job injury or condition."
The district court ruled for UPS, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit affirmed the decision. Young took her case to the Supreme Court. The justices asked the U.S. solicitor general for his advice on whether to hear the appeal. The government's lawyer, Donald B. Verrilli Jr., said no.
While the lower courts' rulings were wrong and the questions raised are "important and recurring," Verrilli said, a disability law passed in 2008 law will help resolve the legal issues. Besides, the EEOC is working on guidance for employers. The justices decided to take the case anyway They never say why. America's working women will be waiting and watching. This time, surely, a majority of justices will stand up for women's rights. Marsha Mercer writes from Washington. You may

Dems struggle to show anti-Koch amendment is 'reasonable'

A ile much of Washington grapples with
V international crises, chronic economic troubles and upcoming midterm elections, Senate Democrats are steadily pushing forward with what they hope will become the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The proposed amendment would give Congress authority to regulate every dollar raised, and every dollar spent, by every federal campaign and candidate in the country. It Would give state legislatures the power to do the same with state races. Framed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a response to campaign spending by the conservative billionaire Koch brothers, the proposed amendment, written by Democratic Sens Tom Udall and Michael Bennet and co-sponsored by 42 other Senate Democrats, would vastly increase the power of Congress to control elections and political speech. The problem is, Democrats aren't quite sure exactly what the amendment should say. In a move that received virtually no attention, they recently rewrote the measure - and in the process revealed its fatal flaw. This is the heart of the amend-


ment as originally written by Udall and Bennet:
"To advance the fundamental principle of political equality for all, and to protect the integrity of tlhe legislative and electoral processes, Congress shall have power to regulate the raising and spending of money and i in-kind equivalents with respect to federal elections, including through setting limits on "(1) the amount of contributions to candidates for nomination for election to, or for election to, federal office; and "(2) the amount of funds that maybe spent by, in support of, or in opposition to such candidates."
There are literally no limits to congressional power in those words. In the name of "political equality for all," Democrats proposed to change the Constitution to allow lawmakers to impose any restriction they

want on campaign fundraising and spending- in other words, on campaigning itself.
Republicans characterized the Udall-Bennet amendment as a clear infringement of First Amendment free-speech rights, as well as a particularly naked power grab by Congress. Democrats responded that the proposed measure was in fact a reasonable response to the "problem" of money in politics, represented in their view by the Kochs.
"We need to make sure that there are reasonable, commonsense limitations in place to prevent wealthy special interests from tarnishing our democratic process," Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said in a June 18 meeting of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution. To show how reasonable the measure is, Durbin proposed a new wording for the amendment. This is the heart of the revised version: * ' "To advance democratic selfgovernment and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process, Congress and the states may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections."

The big difference is the inser- "What we are talking about

which Democrats apparently regulation," an exasperated

New baby rough-toothed dolphin

Gulf World Marine Park is proud to announce the birth of a male roughtoothed dolphin. Doris gave birth at 5:58 p.m. on Friday, June 27. Doris is an Offshore dolphin that was stranded in 2004 on Cape San Blas in a mass stranding. After extensive rehabilitation she was deemed un-releasable by the U.S. government. There were an unusually high number of rough-toothed dolphins that were stranded from Texas to the Florida Keys over the course of a couple of years. GulfWorld volunteered to house all of the dolphins that were deemed un-releasable and is the only facility that has them in long-term human care.'
The father of the calf is Astro, a rough-toothed dolphin that was stranded

Doris and baby.
in 2005 in Houston, Texas. Astro was deemed un-releasable because of severe hearing loss and scoliosis. Gulf World staff started 24-hour monitoring of the expectant mother on June 7 after they observed the beginning stages of labor. After the birth, the calf seemed to be having a -problem nursing. On

Sunday the mom. and calf were moved to a different pool so the staff could assist the mother with the feeding process. The first 30 days are very critical for the calf's survival. Gulf World's veterinarian and marine mammal staff will continue to monitor the dolphins 24 hours a day for the next few weeks.

16A * SUNDAY, JULY 6,2014

From Page lA
family have always done business with Peoples, including some members who eventually moved far away but keep their assets there, it was natural for him to approach the bank when it came time for to look for a house in Jackson County.
Don Graham, the first president of Peoples back when Birge was a little boy, was on the ribbon-cutting line that year and he is currently its CEO and Chairman of the Board there. The bank is staffed with 14 people, many of whom have been there almost as long as Graham. And his son-in-law, David Watford, is the current president.
Birge and his wife sat down with Watford and told him they were interested in buying a house and needed a loan to finance it.
Watford slid a one-sheet document across the desk for them to fill out, back and front. They did that on the spot and handed it back to him. He scribbled his name on a blank left empty for bank officials to sign. Birge figured it was a pre-application and that there would be many more forms to fill out before they could find out whether they qualified. "So what's next?" he askedWatford.Watford's reply stunned him. "You go start looking for a house," he said. "I mean, I can go.give this (paper) to my secretary if you want, but I just approved you."
They're in that house today.
The ability to make such decisions on the spot and to make the process simple illustrates what makes an independent bank like Peoples so special, says Graham.
He was one of the chief organizers of the institution. He was on the 1974 ribbon-cutting line with Robert McRae, who was chairman of the board and one of the founders who came up with the stock and money to put it together. "I came aboard when it was just a slab of concrete," Graham said. "From there we completed the bank and hired the employees. We started with six, including myself, and now we have 14."


Thebankalso grewphysically over time. It started as a 4,000 square-foot structure, but a 2,500 squarefoot expansion was added in 1980.
It has also grown in its asset base. It started with deposits totaling about $450,000. Graham estimates that today it would take deposits of about $5 million to get a new bank off the ground. From that $450,000 base, the bank has built to about $80 million. It has more than $12 million in capital, at about 14 percent of the deposits. That far exceeds the federal mandate that a bank hold about 8 percent capital, a figure calculated from the deposit total. The bank's robust health and its growth, says Peoples Bank of Graceville auditor, John Turner, were built in part upon the Graham philosophy. Adhering to those conservative and careful policies kept the bank out of the kind of trouble that so many others faced in a trend that developed in the industry a few years ago of making riskier lending decisions. At the same time, under the right circumstances the bank can, as an independent, make quick but still prudent decisions like the one Watford made in the Birge loan. It might not always be that simple, but the potential for it is there in a way that non-independents can't easily manage. Graham said he stuck with Peoples all these years, despite offers to go with larger chain banks, because he values the independence that sets Peoples apart. And, too, there's the fact that he knows his staff quite well and that he can depend on them with confidence. Some of the tellers have been there more than 20 years, and some employees have been there almost as long as he has. And he likes the fact that customers and employees know each other on sight and by name practically after one visit, an intimacy he thinks is valuable beyond measure in the human relations department. Graham grew up in Rehobeth, Ala., and started his banking career with the National Bank of Dothan in 1960 as a teller. He worked his way up to head teller, then assistant manager, and then became a branch manager at the bank's Fort Rucker outlet. He went back to the bank's

West Main branch, then became a loan manager at that bank's downtown location.
Soon after, the bank was sold and at about the same time McRae tapped him to help open Peoples. He said he's never regretted the move.
"It happened a couple of times where people showed an interest in me, but I've never seriously considered changing," he said. "I'd been in the multibank environment, and knew that, in that structure it can be pretty impersonal. We keep our mortgages with our bank; we don't sell them like a lot of them do, to two or three parties that then the homeowner doesn't have any way to contact if they have a problem. There's a pride in being able to help people in your community, in ways that you just can't unless you're and independent." As for those conservative policies he espouses, Graham said it's that way for a good reason. " We have never been in a situation where we felt uncomfortable, because we are so conservative, with not a lot of big chances taken. When the crisis on the coast occurred, with financing of condos, etc., the bank regulators were kind of impressed when they found out that we had absolutely none on the coast. We hadn't taken any of those on."
Graham said he. believes that the policies at Peoples were proved to clearly be the right ones, but that the bank and its customers have still felt the fallout of the nationwide banking crisis in a certain way. "You always have ups and downs, and regulations are getting tougher and tougher," he said. "They've put in place some things that have to do with the big folks who did those things, to prevent the debacle of going under, but they apply to everybody and that's kind of frustrating to us. It's not healthy to penalize us for something someone else has done, but it's done, and we've had to spend more on advisers just to keep up with their rules. It's costing more to operate than ever before. That, means that going up on interest rates for savers is difficult, because the margins .are gettingthinner. Still, it's my belief that, while some of the bigger guys can offer marginally better interest

rates, we can still be ihore efficient than they could ever be in a lot of customer service areas."
He explained further. "Most of the big banks, you can't go to a branch for some help and get an answer that day. Here, that's possiblebecause it's not going to be forwarded to a group to determine a bunch of things that then have to come back down. , Here, we sit down and interview a person, and usually give an answer within less than aday. And ifa customer with a mortgage gets in some kind of temporary financial strain that makes it necessary for them to try and extend for a month, they can come to us. The bigger guys, on the other

hand, may have sold that mortgage three or times over its life, and it's impossible for the customer to go out in the marketplace and track all that down." Graham, Watford, Turner and all thdemployees at the bank are hoping for a good turnout Ffid'ay so they can have a chance to personally interact with customers on a day set aside to celebrate the bank's birthday, those differences and the banks continued ability to make them work for the benefit of the community they serve.
As for Birge, whether he goes to the celebration or not, he's thankful for the bank's existence and the policy that helped him get his house.

Fishing Report

Lake Seminole
Bass fishing is good and fish are active despite the heat. Early morning and late-afternoon topwater fishing is productive. Best baits are frog-type lures fished in surface vegetation. Jerkbaits may also pay off.
Deep grassy areas iear river ieges are good spots to target after complete sunup. Texas or

Local squads seek,state titles


Local All-Star baseball and softball teams will hit the road this weekend in search of a state championship, as Darlings, Angels, AAA, and Ozone squads from Marianna and Sneads try toearn aWorld Series berth.
The Snead$ Darlings, Marianna Angels, and Marianna Ozone All-Stars will all head to state as district champions, while Marianna AAA goes as a replacement for DistrictV champion Calhoun County.
The opening ceremonies for

each tournament will be Friday before the start of play Saturday.
Marianna's Ozone All-Stars will travel to Spring Hill looking for a shot at redemption after coming up one win short of advancing to the title game of last year's tourney in East Lakeland.
The Marianna team made it to the fifth day of the tournament before a 10-7 loss to Hardee end-ed its run, but this year's group appears determined to make it all the way after a dominant run of the district tournament that Featured a 4-0 record and an 188 win over Blountstown in the

championship game. Both the Sneads Darlings and Marianna Angels will be in Okeechobee for their tournaments, with Sneads also glad to get another shot at a state crown after winning two games and getting eliminated by Hernando last year in Brooksville, with six players from that squad making the return trip to state.
Sneads claimed another district title this year with a dramatic 10-9 victory over Marianna after winning its first three games by a combined margin of 58-18. The Marianna Angels are the

only local team looking to repeat as state champions after rolling through last year's Brooksville tournament 4-0 with three wins by 10 or more runs.
Marianna was also 4-0 in this year's district tournament, beating Wewahitchka, Sneads, and Franklin County twice by a total score of 43-3.
The Marianna Angels are coached by Jim Williams, while the Sneads Angels are led by Steve Sprouse, the Marihnna Ozone by Brian Wiggins, and the Marianna AAA by Shane Monk.

wimmers take off at the start of the 2014 Freedom Springs Spring Triathlon at Blue Springs Recreation Area in Marianna on Saturday. The sprint triathlon consisted of a 14-mile swim, a S10-mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run. This is the 29th year for the event and many participants said they would be back next year for the 30th anniversary.

AP Source: Cavaliers meet with agent for James

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND - Four years after their messy breakup, the Cavaliers and LeBron James are at least talking about a reunion. Cavs officials met with James' agent, Rich Paul, this week about the free-agent superstar's possible return. The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks. It was not immediately clear if owner Dan Gilbert was at the meeting.
James recently opted out of the final two years of his contract in Miami. The two-time NBA cham-

Miami Heat basketball player LeBron James posed for a picture during the team's media day in Miami on Sept.30, 2013.

pion has gone to four straight finals with the Heat. However, after the team was throttled by San Antonio in this year's finals, James said he would weigh his

options this sumner. One of them could be re-signing with the Cavs, the team he spent seven seasons with before leaving in 2010 to join forces with

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Florida. Wade.and Bosh also opted out of their deals with Heat, raising speculation the "Big Three" could be headed in different directions. James' decision to leave Cleveland - Thursday was the fouryear anniversary of the team's last pitch to him - prompted Gilbert to condemn him in a scathing letter to Cavs fans. The owner also told The AP he felt James had quit during games in the playoffs. ESPN has reported that Paul also met with representatives for the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. A photo of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban in Cleveland circulated on Twitter, though he said he was there for a commitment for his TV show, "Shark Tank."

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: When my sister dated
"Ron," he was a very angry and controlling man. They fought constantly. My parents insisted they both see a psychologist to work out their relationship issues. The psychologist diagnosed Ron as a sociopath, but my sister married him anyway.
They divorced when their son was 5
years old. My sister has sole custody, but Ron sees and speaks to him whenever he pleases and constantly disrespects my sister.
I have recently noticed some disturbing behavior in my nephew. He has bursts of anger, displays reckless behavior and copies his father's words, calling my sister some very bad names.
I worry that my nephew will become a sociopath like his father. Since I have the clinical diagnosis from the psychologist, can I hire a lawyer to request that Ron have only supervised visits? I realize that I'm meddling in my sister's business, but she doesn't have the strength to fight her ex. In fact, she wasn't the one who asked for the divorce. Ron did. My parents are very old, and none of the other siblings cares about this. I feel I should do something.
- CAN'T STAND BY HELPLESSLYWATCHING Dear Can't: We understand your frtstration and concern, but without your sister's cooperation, there's a limit to what you can do. Would you be willing to claim that she is an incompetent mother and take custody of the boy? Can you show that she is putting her child at risk?
We think you should instead urge your sister to get counseling to understand the ways in which she is allowing her ex-husband to take advantage of her and emotionally damage their child. She also should seek counseling for her angry son, who wants his father to love him, and so he emulates behavior that hurts his mother, whom he also loves. This is both confusing and manipulative: Perhaps she will take action for the sake of her child, if not for herself.

Dear Annie: When my family gets together for holidays, my two daugh-

ters-in-law prepare and bring food. When dinner is over, they clean and do dishes. My daughter rarely brings food and never helps with the cleanup. This embarrasses me, yet I do not want to say anything that would spoil the day for everyone. Perhaps she will read this letter and realize that family members should do their share. What do you say?
Dear Mom: We say you need to tell your daughter to do her share, but don't wait until the last minute. Before the next holiday gathering, simply ask her to bring a dish like everyone else, and add that you expect her to participate in the cleanup, along with her sisters-in-law. And by the way, where are your sons? They should be helping, as well. We suggest that you make a matter-of-fact announcement to that effect and assign chores for everyone.

Dear Annie: I cried when I first read the letter from "Saddened," whose wife has cut off all forms of intimacy. I am a few years shy of 60 and have had no intimacy in years because of my husband's "medical issues," though I often wonder whether he simply doesn't want me anymore.
I know age has changed us, but the feelings are still there. I cry when I think of what I am missing. He couldn't hurt me aby more if he stuck a knife through me. I've tried initiating and hinting, and get a peck on the cheek for my efforts. I don't want him to feel forced.' The thought of an affair has crossed my mind, but there's no one else I want, and I doubt anyone would want me. I know my husband loves me, but I miss the closeness we once shared. I have reconciled myself to the fact that this is the way it's going to be, but inside, I am

Charles Baudouin said, "No matter how hard you work for success, if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize your endeavors and make success impossible."
That can apply at the bridge table. In today's deal, though, South has to try to neutralize the threat of East's heart suit. South is in three no-trump and West leads the heart six. What should declarer do?
South starts with seven top tricks: one spade, one heart (given the lead), four diamonds and one club. At least two more tricks are available from the club suit. But is there any danger? If, at trick one, declarer plays low from the dummy and wins East's nine with his king, then, when he takes the losing club finesse, West will lead his second heart and the defenders will win one club and four hearts.
The result will be the same if South plays dummy's heart 10 and takes East's jackwith his king. Instead, declarer should call for dummy's queen. East has to take the trick with his ace; otherwise, South gets two heart tricks. But what does East do now?

Finally, the curious may work out how East-West can defeat three no-trump if declarer allows East to win Trick 1 with his heart nine.
