Salvation Army donations steady


By LEANNE TYO

dedicating
their time this
holiday season
- to ringing the
Salvation Army bell'at local
businesses, and despite the
current economy, people
are still giving.
The Lake City Rotary
Club has been assigned to
ring the bell at the middle
door of WalMart, said Herb


Ellis, Lake City Rotary Club
president, and the dona-
tions have been coming in.
'The community is very
generous," he said. "We
had large denomination'
bills stuffed into our buck-
ets. The sensitivity to those
that are cold and hungry
is just touching. People
would donate on their way
into the store and give
again on their way out."
Kyle Keen, incoming
vice president for Kiwanis
and organizer of the


Kiwanis bell ringing proj-
ect, said the giving at their
Winn-Dixie post has been
the same as previous years.
"People are still giving
even with the recession,"
Keen said.
Margaret Collins,
president of Altrusa
International, Inc. of Lake
City, said the Altrusa club
rings the Salvation Army
bell at Publix and said she
is optimistic about the
donations they've received.
"We feel as though


people gave more this year
than they usually give,"
Collins said.
Ellis said the Rotary
club has raised $6,500 for
the Salvation Army so far
this year from their post at
WalMart, and that this was
more than they raised dur-
ing last year's campaign.
Bill Phillips, Rotary
member and chairman of

Fugitive found in
Missouri after 30
years on the run.
From staff reports
A Florida fugitive oih the
run for more than 30 years
was arrested in Missouri
during the weekend after
authorities received a tele-
phone tip which led to his
capture. The fugitive was
recently featured in: the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's "12 Fugitives
of Christmas" media cam-
paign focusing on high pri-
ority escapees and is the
first fugitive arrested as a
result of the campaign.
Oscar Eugene
Richardson, 61, was arrest-
ed at 3 p.m. Saturday in
Ridgedale, Miss., as a result
of a tip authorities received
from an FDLE hotline.


Richardson was arrested
by a U.S. Marshals Task
Force and
was booked
into the
T Tan ey
I County' Jail
on his out-
standing
warrant for
Richardson escape.
"Richardson is the old-
est case among the dozen
escapees, and it is fitting
that justice caught up
with him first," said FDLE
Commissioner Gerald
Bailey. "We thank our
friends' 'in the media for
reaching the public so effec-
tively with the names and
faces of these fugitives."

raise awareness about the
plight of the homeless.
More than 50 people turned
out for the second annual
candlelight vigil in down-
town Lake City.
People often think of
the homeless as the per-
son on the street corner
holding a sign and say
that will never be them,
she said.
"I always said that and
thought that," Lyons said.
After becoming home-
less, she moved from state

said. At one point, she suf-'
fered a miscarriage.
"Imagine going through
that and being homeless,"
she said.
Lyons did not call or write
her family while homeless
because she was ashamed,
she said.
"How do you admit
you're homeless and living
in a truck?" she asked. "If's
hard. It'll always be hard
for everybody living on the
streets."
People have many mis-
conceptions aboutthehome-
less, Lyons said. However,


they should not be judged
and the community should
try to help them.
Dec. 21 is the longest
night of the year, said
Deborah Rivera, Homeless

Suwannee Valley Chair.
"As we stand here for 30

ple unsheltered and don't

Davis said his accom-
plishments while at the
department contradict
the chief's reason for fir-
ing him. He was promoted
from lieutenant to cap-
tain and was recognized
as supervisor of the year
three times.
"So I am here tonight,
along with members of this
community, to fight for jus-
tice, not only for myself but
to also prevent this same
type of action from happen-
ing to someone else," he
said.
Gilmore's termination of
Davis was suspicious since
she had only been on the
job for six weeks, said John
Mayo, president of the
Columbia County NAACP.
"Many individuals in the
community view Mr. Davis
as an unsung hero," he said.
"He's worked his way up
the ranks."
Mayo continued, say-
ing people in the com-
munity feel the decision
was made based on hear-
say and retaliation against
complaints Davis has filed
in the city.

Davis' rights were violated
and "just cause was not fol-
lowed" in the termination.
However, everyone in the
community is not opposed
to the chief's decision, said
Glenel Bowden of Lake
City. The chief has brought
a degree of leadership and
experience to the city, he'
said.
"A coach has the right to
determine their assistant,"
he said. "Otherwise the
team just won't work."
During the meeting,
Gilmore. asked the council
to reclassify two corporal
positions to one addition-
al captain's position and
amend the budget accord-
ingly. The council voted 4-1,
with Councilman Jake Hill
dissenting, to approve her
request.
Gilmore echoed
Bowden's sentiments and
said the council has empow-
ered her to take the depart-
ment forward to be a world
class agency.
"As a leader you have to
make tough calls in your
assessment," she said.

Reshaping

Florida's

political

landscape



politicians and their
special interest
allies in Tallahassee
" and Washington,
SD.C., are getting nervous about
a pair of proposals that could
,weaken their grip on power.
Two proposed constitutional
:'amendments would reform
'the once-a-decade process of
drawing legislative and con-
gressional district boundaries.
SEach would make it harder for
legislators who redraw' the lines
to keep tailoring districts for
incumbents or political parties
instead of voters. Legislators
would be required, wherever
possible, to create compact dis-
tricts that follow existing politi-
cal or geographical boundaries.
With these proposed amend-
ments looking like they're going
to get enough valid signatures
from voters to get on next year's
ballot, opponents have turned'
to a misleading and cynical
S argument: The measures would
somehow diminish the voting
rights of African American and
Hispanic voters in Florida.
Under the current system,
the majority in the Legislature
uses detailed databases on voter
behavior and sophisticated com-
puters to fashion as many legsis-
lative and congressional districts
as possible with a majority
inclined to support its party's
candidates. They corral voters
-likely to oppose their party in as
.-few districts as possible.
This approach. often leads to
bizarrely shaped, gerryman-
'tered districts that divide com-
-:%unities with common interests.
-' C minole County, for example,
'6is been sliced and diced into
,'&ats of four different U.S. House
districts. This amounts to law-
- i fakers choosing voters, instead
ofletting voters choose them.
SIt helps explain why so
few seats in the Legislature
and Congress change hands
Sin most elections. Consider
that last year, when Democrat
SBarack Obama won the
i presidential race in Florida, no
incumbent Republican state
'legislators lost their seats.

'Believe' isn't right message


S"Believe in what your heart
is saying
Hear the melody that's
playing
There's no time to waste
There's so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel
inside
And give your dreams the
wings to fly
You have everything you
need
If you just believe"

I may sound like a Grinch
on this one. But I admit
I am repulsed by this.
treacly Josh Groban song.
Yet we hear it everywhere
we go at Christmas. "Believe"
is a wildly popular track from
the 2004 Christmas movie "The
Polar Express," and one can't
getaway from it at this time
of year.
It airs about every 18 min-
utes if one is listening to
Christmas music on the radio.
Every time it plays, I'll go out
of my way to make fun of it
or otherwise refer to it if my
children are around. Often
they beat me to it. "Mom,
your 'Believe' song is on
again!"
It's not that I mind secular
Christmas tunes. "Grandma
Got Run Over by a Reindeer"
is one of my favorites.
Seriously. At least it's fun.
Conversely, I find a lot of con-'
temporary Christian music to
be really shallow.
I know, I know: "Believe"
is just a song. There are a lot
of silly Christmas songs. But
this.one really gets to me, I
suppose, because the lyrics


Betsy Hart
betsysblog.com
aren't just foolish. They are a
theme song of our culture.
Ick.
"Believe" ... in what? Well,
whatever you want to, it
seems. What about, "is this
right?" or "is this true?" Nope.
Just believe what feels good.
"Believe in what your heart
is saying/Believe in what you
feel inside,"
Are you kidding me? Not
to put too fine a point on it,
but the prophet Jeremiah said
that "The heart is deceitful
above all things, and desper-
ately wicked: who can know
it?"
Good grief, if my four kids
were to believe in whatever
their "hearts" were articulat-
ing, those hearts would regu-
larly be .saying to each other,
"You are wrong, I'm right and
that's mine!"
And it would be constant
warfare around here, instead
of only semi-constant warfare
around here.
Any honest parent knows
that the age-old prophet beats
out the modern-day songwrit-
er on that one.
And really, "... you have
everything you need, if you
just believe." Oh? Try telling
that to the folks who audition


for "American Idol" without
having any talent.
Enough said.
Sure, I'm all for looking
at what is going on in one's
heart, but it has to be mea-
sured and checked against
something. Like maybe, truth.
Only in a "feelings are
always right" culture that
battle is lost from the get-go.
And so I wouldn't take a silly
Christmas song so seriously
except that this wildly popular
nonsense doesn't just pop out
of dopey poetry.
It's produced.by a culture.., ,,
that buys into these
sentiments hook, line and
singer.
And what an irony that
school kids would easily be
allowed to put their voices to
songs like "Believe" in almost
any holiday concert. But
"Silent Night," which, like it
or not, at least announces the
possibility of something both
concrete and transcendent to
believe in, would be banned
From most of those same pro-
grams because it is somehow
offensive.
So here I'll fully confess
something I "feel inside,"
especially at this time of year:
It's that my children are bet-
ter off understanding what
I think, not just what I feel,
about sentiments like those
found in "Believe."

a Parent" radio show on

OTHER OPINION


H1N1 no judge of class, character


he H1N1 flu scared
the heck out of
many Americans.
Nervousness was
fed by a growing
number of death reports and
an H1N1 vaccine shortage.
Americans stood in long lines
- in the cold and rain some-
times - to get vaccinated.
And those fortunate enough
to get protection were usually
considered at high risk of hav-
ing complications if they got
sick. They were among those
in "priority groups" because
there wasn't enough vaccine
for everyone.
Now everyone is a priority.
Any Floridian who wants
an H1N1 vaccine is eligible to
receive one.
Because the flu season is far
from over. Winter hasn't even
officially started and the holi-
days will bring people - and


all their viruses - together.
You could leave a family gath-'
ering with more than a present
you didn't want. You could
leave with a strain of flu that
can make you very ill --death-
ly ill.
Health officials say at least
10,000 Americans have died
from H1N1 so far. Thousands
of people across the country
have been hospitalized. By
now, most of us know someone
who has been sick with the
bug.
The vaccine will prevent that
from happening to more peo-
ple. It is highly effective. And
it is safe. The H1N1 vaccine is
made in exactly the same way
the
seasonal flu vaccine is made
each year, and by the same
manufacturers. Early on, it
was tested on thousands of
Americans - including many


Iowans.
With hundreds of
thousands of people vaccinated
over the past few months,
few side effects have been
reported.
Get vaccinated for selfish
reasons. You don't want to be
sick in bed and aching for a
week or more. You think you
won't get ill, but that is likely
what many of those who died
thought as well. It's easy to
believe your child won't get
sick or die from the new virus,
but children continue to die.
Go get a shot and put your
mind at ease.
Go get an H1N1 vaccination.
It's a gift to you and your
family that will keep on
protecting.

Santa


called


to offer


hope
Yes, Virginia, there
is a Santa Claus. He
sits next tO me in
the church choir.
Let me describe
him for you: He's about five
feet, seven inches tall. He's
a jovial fellow with an ample
belly to roll with a hearty
laugh that can be heard all
over the church. He has salt-
and-pepper hair and beard that
miraculously turn white at the
beginning of the Christmas
season. He sings beautifully.
He also reads music, which
is helpful to the guy sitting
next to him.
About the middle of
November, Santa disappears
from the choir. He goes off
to a place called Bakersfield,
Calif., where he and Mrs.
Claus will stay until the day
after Christmas. Then they'll
return to northeast Georgia,
where they live when they're
not taking children's requests.
Santa sits inside a
Bakersfield shopping mall 11
hours every day and listens
to children who have visions
of sugar plums, or something,
dancing in their heads. Some
.,of them:havye visions of just
being together for Christmas,
all of their family together.
- One pretty, little girl wanted
her grandmother to get bet-
ter for Christmas. A boy told
Santa, "I'd like a new house for
Christmas. ... We had a fire."
And Santa said, "Well, Santa
will pray that your new house
will be ready real soon."
Santa does pray, you know,
Virginia. He often breathes
a prayer from his heart and
sometimes prays out loud with
the youngster on his knee. He
also says things like,."You'll
celebrate more than just what's
under the Christmas tree,
Rightt" And, "I'm just a small
part of the picture. The bigger
story is about God's Gift to
us." And, "Santa may seem to
be the big guy, but he can only
do so much. God can perform
miracles."
You don't know this,
Virginia, but for 32 years Santa
was an associate pastor and
Music minister in New York
and Pennsylvania. He survived
double heart-valve replace-
ment in 1992, when doctors
gave him a 2 percent chance
of making it. Now he's retired,
but not altogether retired, as
you can see.
People at church know
Santa as Bill Sandstrom. That's
William David Sandstroni, born
in Jamestown, N.Y., migrated
south in 2002, married to Mrs.
Claus, also known as Peggy; a
son and a daughter and three
grandchildren, 6, 3 and 2.
Santa answered his new call-
ing, as he terms it, six years
ago. "It's a calling," he says, "to
share the Christmas spirit, to
, give people hope, to point them
to God as the only source of
love, joy, peace, hope and good
will." Santa loves telling kids
that he needs a savior, too.
Santa is really tired after
seeing maybe 300 children a
day. But he loves his work. He
really does.
You can tell by the way he
laughs that Santa laugh and says
to you, Virginia, and to everyone
else who celebrates the birth of
Christ, "Merry Christmas to you
all. And God bless you."

Dems on track for pre-Christmas health bill LOCAL STOCKS


By ERICA WERNER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON
President Btarack Obama
cheered a crucial health
care vote in the Senate on
Monday that put historic
legislation well on its way to
pre-Christmas passage and
which sharpened already
edgy partisan tensions.
The middle-of-the-night
vote, which knocked away
Republican attempts at pro-
cedural delays, required
all 58 Democrats and the
Senate's two independents
to hold together. The next
vote is expected around
7:20 a.m. today.
Obama called the vote "a
big victory for the American
people," and challenged crit-
ics who say it will increase,
not reduce costs.
"For all those who are
continually carping about
how this is somehow a big
spending government bill,,
this cuts our deficit by $132
billion the first 10 years,
and by over a trillion in the
second," Obama said. "That
argument that opponents
are making against this bill
does not hold water."
Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., said: "Never
have we been so close to
reforming America's bro-
ken insurance system." t

Association announced

that secured the votes of
Sens. Joseph Lieberman, a
Connecticut Independent,
and Ben Nelson, a conser-

The AMA's support came
even though the bill doesn't
address a top organization
goal - a permanent fix to a
flawed Medicare reimburse-
ment formula that would
cause payments to doctors
to drop by 21 percent in
January.
Still,.Reid did make some
last-minute changes to


court doctors' support.
A proposed fee on physi-
cians to enroll in Medicare,
originally set at $300 annu-
ally, was dropped in a final
package of amendments,
and payment cuts to spe-,
cialty physicians to pay for
bonuses to primary care
doctors in underserved
areas were also eliminated,
the AMA's president-elect,
Dr. Cecil B. Wilson, said.
"America has the best
health care in the world
- if you can get it," Wilson
said. "For far too many
people access. to care is


out of reach because they
lack insurance. This is not
acceptableto physicians."
With final passage on
track, Republicans ramped
up their criticism, denounc-
ing the last-minute deals
and concessions needed to
get the 60 votes needed to
overcome GOP tactics.

NASCAR driver
Jimmie Johnson is
AP Male Athlete.
By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -
There was little recognition
outside the racing world
when Jimmie Johnson won
his first NASCAR driving
championship.
Same with his second,
and again with his third.
But four straight champi-
onships? That's a different
story.
Johnson, the first driver
in NASCAR history to win
four consecutive titles,
earned mainstream recog-
nition Monday when he was
honored as the Male Athlete
of the Year by members of
The Associated Press.
Johnson received 42
votes from editors at U.S.
newspapers which are mem-
bers of the AP. Tennis star
Roger Federer (30 votes)
and Olympic sprinter Usain
Bolt (29) were the only
other athletes with totals in

Santa Fe High has agreed
to fill in, joining Palatka
High, Union County High
and the host Lady Tigers
for the event the 'week
'after Christmas. In turn,
Columbia will give the
Raiders a home game on
Jan; 7.
"We just don't have the
numbers," Fort White


ing


coach James Jackson said.
"We are worried about our
district games."
District 5-3A is a worry
for all the winter sports at
Fort White.
The Lady Indians
volleyball team was
runner-up in the district that
includes Newberry, Santa
Fe, Suwannee and Williston
high schools, but the tables
have turned.
Heading into Christmas
break, Fort White boys are
04 in district basketball and
0-3 in district soccer (no
Williston). Lady Indians
basketball is 0-5 in district,
while the girls soccer team
is 04-3.
In district realignment
for 2009-10, Fort White
escaped PK. Yonge School


which, won district in girls
basketball and soccer and
boys soccer last year, and
was runner-up in boys
basketball to Willist6n.
It hasn't helped so.far.
Newberry and Williston
were in Fort White's
district last year. Santa Fe-
and Suwannee dropped
down from Class 4A.
SSanta .Fe won its district
last year in girls basketball

Playoff picture messy


SixAFC teams
tied at 7-7 and still
in the running.
By BARRY WILNER
Associated Press
These playoff races are
oh, so easy to decipher,
aren't they? No ties at the
top of divisions and two
clear-cut wild-card teams in
each conference.
Real easy - except for
this: There are two more
weeks on the schedule
and enough teams on the
playoff fringe to create
a wild scramble for the
remaining berths.
Here's what we do know:
San Diego, Indianapolis,
New Orleans, Minnesota
and Arizona are division
champions. The, Colts
and Saints have clinched
first-round byes, and the
Chargers are on the verge
pf doing so.
The Eagles own at
least a wild-card spot, and
if they beat Denver on


"You can't kill
us until we're
dead."
-Max Stark,
Pittsburgh Steelers tackle

Sunday and Dallas loses to
Washington, the NFC East
is Philadelphia's.
Cincinnati needs a win
Sunday against Kansas
City to clinch the AFC
North. New England gets
the AFC East by beating
Jacksonville.
Both of those division
leaders also can clinch if
their nearest pursuers,
Baltimore in the North
and Miami in the East, fall
Sunday.
Through 14 games,
the wild-card holders are
Dallas and Green Bay in
the NFC, with no tiebreak-
ers necessary. In the AFC,
it's Baltimore and Denver,
the only 8-6 teams in the
conference. There are
several scenarios through


which the Ravens, Broncos,
ICowboys and Packers could
grab those wild cards this
weekend.
So now let's- muddle
things. A lot.
Not in the NFC, where
only the New Yoik Giants
also remain viable. But in
the AFC, there's potential
for all six 7-7 clubs to get
in, and one of them -
Miami - could still win its
division.
'We're still in this race,"
Dolphins coach Tony
Sparano said. "The best
chance we have is we have
to win two games. We still
have a pulse. We'll prepare
that way."
Heading into Week 15,
Jacksonville owns the
No. 7 seed, for whatever
that's worth considering
the Jaguars must go to
New England. The Patriots
need a win to considerably
ease their load on the final
weekend - and they still
could be the second seed in

JOHNSON: First race driver honored

double digits.
Although Tiger Woods
was named Athlete of the
Decade, the golfer received
only nine votes for Athlete
of the Year.
For Johnson, 34, the first
race car driver to be named
the APs Athlete of the Year
in its 78-year history, the,
award is the validation he's
been waiting for since he
began his historic run in
2006.
' "We'd been wondering
the last few years, 'When is
this going to hit?"' he said.
"It seems like the answer
is now. The wave is finally
peaking, and we don't know
where it's going to take us.
The fourth straight title
takes it out of our sport and
makes it a point of discus-
sion - like, 'Wow, a race car
driver won this thing.'"
The Californian again'
schooled the competition,
winning four of his seven
races.this season when the
Chase for the Sprint Cup
championship began in
September. Two-time cham-
pion Tony Stewart dominat-
ed the "regular season," but
it was Johnson and his No.
48 Hendrick Motorsports
team that turned it up when
the stakes were highest.

In the 10 Chase races,
Johnson finished outside
the top-10 only once: when
he wrecked at Texas with
Sam' Hornish Jr. three laps
into the eighth race. The
crash proved Johnson's
mettle, as he sat inside his
car, helmet on, for more
than an hour as .crew chief
Chad Knaus led a total
rebuild of his .Chevrolet so
that Johnson could return
to the track.
Although the 38th-place
finish decimated his cozy
lead, in the standings, he
shrugged off any potential
challenge by' rolling into
Phoenix the next week and
leading 238 of the 312 laps
en route to a victory that


turned the season finale
into a low-key Sunday drive
for Johnson.
"I'm pretty sure that
dude's Superman," said
teammate Mark Martin,
who finished 'second in
the standings, 141 points
behind John'son.
The march into the'
record books has attracted
attention for Johnson far
beyond NASCAR's insu-
lated garage. HBO Sports'
award-winning "24/7" pro-
gram has tabbed Johnson
for a four-episode series
that will chronicle his prep-
aration for the 2010 season-
opening Daytona 500.
And he received wide-
spread attention earlier this
month when he donated
$922,000 in educational
grants to 26 schools ,in
California, North Carolina
and Oklahoma.
Now comes the AP
honor, which Johnson
said reinfor-ces what he's
always believed - that
even though he's a race car
driver, he's "100 percent"
an athlete.
"I've. looked at other
sports, particularly base-
ball, and I've seen. plenty
of out-of-shape, fat players,"
said Johnson.

HAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Daughter must cut off


access to stop nosy mom


DEAR ABBY: My moth-
er is my best friend, but I
can't stop yelling at her for
invading my privacy. I have
just learned that she has
read all my journals since I
was 9. She also figured out
all my passwords to my e-
mail, online blogs and social
network accounts.
I have lived away from
home for six years. I no lon-
ger feel I can leave my moth-
er alone in my apartment be-
cause she goes through my
text messages, call list, let-
ters, bills, bank statements,
etc. I have now stopped writ-
ing, which was iy only out-
let of expression, because
of her snooping. She says I
hurt her feelings when I yell,
butI have reached the end of
my rope.
I have had calm conver-
sations with her about this.
She always promises that
she'll stop, but she never
does. Abby, she has no rea-
son to snoop - I.talk to her
20 times a day. How can I
keep this from ruining our
relationship?- . MAD IN
MANHATTAN
DEAR MAD: You say
you talk to your mother 20
times a day? Doesn't that
seem to you to be some-
what excessive? You say she
snoops when she's alone in
your apartment. How is she
gaining unsupervised entry?
Speaking as an unbiased
outsider, I think some sepa-

ration from your mother
would be healthy for both
of you. So change your pass-
words, put your financial
information under lock and
key, and cut the umbilical
cord. It's long overdue.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
male friend who was raised
with beautiful manners and.
always opens a door for .a
lady. The last time we spoke,
he told me he had opened a
door for a woman and she
told him off! She said she
didn't need-any "help," that
she was capable of opening
her own doors, and it should
have been obvious that she
wasn't disabled - among
other things.
My friend didn't know
what to say. I told him to just
ignore what she said. Was
there a polite comeback for
him? - STUMPED FOR
AN ANSWER
DEAR STUMPED: No,
not unless he wanted to get
into a spitting contest with
a viper. You say your friend
was raised to open doors for
ladies. Well, it appears he
opened a door for a woman


who wasn't one. Please tell
him not to give up because
anyone with manners would
har-e said thank you and ap-
preciated the gesture. I know -
I would have.
DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I have been mar-
ried for 27 years and are
raising four children. During
a recent visit to my in-laws, I
noticed a picture hanging on
their wall that we had used
as our engagement photo.
Abby, the picture had been
altered. My portion was
cut out! I was shocked and
would like to know your
thoughts. Should I say some-
thing about it, or ignore this
obvious slight and move on?
APPARENT OUT-LAW
IN HOUSTON
-DEAR OUT-LAW: You
say you have been married
to their son for 27 years and
this the first time you've no-
ticed it? If so, ignore it. How-
ever, if the alteration is re-
cent, and you suspect there
may be fences thai ner 1
mending, the next time you
pay them a visit, walk over to
the picture, say: "Oh, that's
our engagement picture. But
something seems to be miss-
ing. Why ... it's ME. Should
I take this as a message?"
Then be quiet and listen

ARIES (March 21-
April 19); Strategy and
common sense will save
the day. If you complicate
matters by acting, impul-
sively, you will have regrets
and probably a tough time
rectifying the problem. Use
your energy and know-how
wisely. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Last-minute
rushing around will pay off.
It's the little things you do
for others that will count. A
trip or visit will enable you
to reunite with people you
should try to see more of-
ten. ****
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Don't give in to
pressure being put on you
by someone who has done
something for you in the
past. A change in a rela-
tionship will influence what
you do this festive season.
Do something special for
someone .questioning your
choices. **
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): An interesting
turn of events will change
your status, your outlook
and your attitude for the up-
coming year. A burden may
be placed on you but, if you
take it on without question
and do the best you can, it
will make you look good
and win someone's favor.
'***** *


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): You can expect things
to change rapidly. You have
to tidy up any loose ends
now before it's too late. A
financial or legal concern
will leave you feeling emo-
tional about what might
have been. Put the past be-
hind you. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Let everyone know
how you feel and what your
plans are. The feedback
you get will build your con-
fidence to carry on with
your plans. A burden you've
carried for a long time will
come to a head. Prepare to
let go. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): The festive season
is here and you should be
engaging in plenty of social
activities. An innovative gift
will help break the silence
between you and someone
you've lost touch with. Love
is in the stars. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Take on any
challenge that comes
your way and you 'will
prove a point to someone
who has been question-
ing what you are doing. A
couple of slight changes
to something creative you
are working on will turn a


negative response into a
positive. *****
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Your exu-
berance will cause some
problems with a relation-
ship that hasn't been go-
ing too well. Tone it down
or prepare to walk away. A
change at home may not
be what you want but face
facts and move on. **
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Reconnect-
ing with old friends and
family will warm the heart
and help. you put your life
back in perspective. This is
a great day to express your
thanks and gratitude. Your
acknowledgement will be
appreciated. ****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Helping others
will bring you in touch with
someone you haven't seen
for some time. Before you
consider getting together
with anyone from your past,
remember why you moved
on the last time you were
together. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): You'll be
emotional about personal
matters but don't act im-
pulsively or you may ruin
a relationship important to
your future. Get your facts
straight. Someone may be
trying to lead you in the
wrong direction. ***
