Winfrey promises
to spill family secret
LOS ANGELES Oprah Winfrey

her talk show. But on Monday's epi-
sode, she promises, the drama will
be about her.
Winfrey told viewers Thursday
that she will have a reunion of her
own on-"The Oprah Winfrey Show."
She wouldn't say with whom only
that it involves something she's
learned about recently and is known
to only a few people close to her.
"I thought I'd seen it all. But this,
my friends, is the miracle of all mira-
cles," Winfrey said in a promotional
spot for the show. The word "mira-
cle" appears on screen, reinforcing
her pronouncement.

Scott selects ..
management head ...

Rick Scott dipped into
the health care industry,
where he made millions,
to find an executive with a
reputation for cost cutting
to head a much-criticized
agency that oversees
Florida's state buildings,
purchasing and personnel.
Jack Miles, most
recently a senior direc-
tor of CIGNA, was
appointed Friday by
the new Republican
governor as secretary
of the Department of
Management Services.
The former sourcing and
supply executive from
Winter Park was credited
with setting a record by
cutting $80 million in costs
for the health management
and in
just 20 months.
Florida faces a $3.6
billion to $4.6 billion gap
between anticipated rev-
enue for the next budget
year, which starts July 1,
and the most high priority
and critical state spend-
ing priorities. Scott also is
proposing school property
and corporate income tax
cuts that would balloon
the impending shortfall by
another $2 billion.

Agreement for
healthier lunches
MIAMI Former
President Bill Clinton has
announced an agreement
with leading food manufac-
turers to provide healthier
school lunch options.
Clinton told Miami
school students that seven
companies have agreed to
increase the sale of foods
that meet science-based
nutrition standards by 50
percent within five years.
The manufacturers also
agreed to set prices that
are no higher than less-
healthy choices.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs one of four executive orders
he put into action within an hour after his inauguration in
Tallahassee Jan. 4. Scott named Jack Miles to head the
Department of Management Services Friday.

Clinton's foundation is a
member of the Alliance for
a Healthier Generation, an
organization that aims to
reduce childhood obesity.
The pact is expected to
provide healthier options
for more than 30 mil-
lion students nationwide,
including 14 million in the
free and reduced-price
lunch program.
The agreement comes
a day after Walmart
announced it would make
thousands of products
healthier by reformulating
them and pushing suppli-
ers to do the same.

2 Russians go
- A pair of Russian space-

walkers breezed through
a series of chores outside
the International Space
Station on Friday, install-
ing a camera and an exper-
imental radio system.
Astronauts Dmitry
Kondratyev and Oleg
Skripochka set up the
radio antenna and routed
cable for it, then tossed
the cover and cable reel
overboard. TV cameras
showed the items tumbling
harmlessly away.
The radio system is
designed to transmit
large data files to Russian
ground controllers.
The men also retrieved
a pair of old science experi-
ments. They worked so
quickly the spacewalk
ended almost an hour early.

recession-battered economy began
and ended 2010 the same way -
with a 12 percent seasonally adjust-
ed unemployment rate.
State labor officials Friday said
December's jobless rate was 12
percent, the same as for January
2010 and also unchanged from
November. That leaves Florida with
more than 1.1 million unemployed
It's also 2.6 percentage points
above the 9.4 percent national fig-
ure for December and 0.3 percent-
age point higher than Florida's 11.7
percent rate in December 2009.
Despite that gloomy news, there
was at least one hopeful sign in
the year-end jobless report. Florida
added 43,000 jobs since December
It's barely a glimmer, though,
because that's not much growth -
just 0.6 percent in a labor force
numbering 9.2 million, and the total
jobs actually dropped by 17,900
from' November to December.
On the positive side, December
was the sixth straight month to
show an increase, even a small
one, in jobs compared to the same
month in 2009, noted Agency for
Workforce Innovation Director
Cynthia R. Lorenzo.
"And with Gov. Rick Scott's
emphasis on strategies to spark
and support job creation, we antici-
pate continued improvement in our
economy," Lorenzo said in a state-
The new Republican governor, a

multimillionaire who'd never before
run for public office, last year cam-
paigned on a promise to create
700,000 new jobs in seven years.
That's besides about 1 million jobs
state economists expect Florida to
add as it rebounds from recession
even if the state does nothing over
that span. Florida has lost 876,500
jobs since 2007.
Scott said Florida's December
unemployment rate "is not accept-
'"The numbers reaffirm my com-
mitment to getting Florida back to
work, and prove that we Ipust put
job creation first by making Florida
the best place to do business," Scott
said in a statement.
His plans include cutting busi-
ness taxes and government regula-
tion and increasing emphasis and
spending on economic develop-
Nearly 30,000 retail jobs cre-
ated in October, November and
December for the holiday shopping
period are not included because the
statistics are seasonally adjusted,
said agency economist Rebecca
Rust. She said typically some of
these jobs become permanent and
those would be reflected in figures
for January through March.
The state's unemployment rate
hovered at or near 12 percent
throughout the past year and set
a modern record of 12.3 percent in
March. That's the highest since the
state began keeping jobless statis-
tics in the 1970s.
Its lowest mark last year was 11.4
percent in June.
State economists expect Florida's
unemployment rate to remain at

or near 11.8 percent during first
quarter of this year before it begins
slowly dropping to 11 percent by
the end of 2011.
Rust said new workers entering
the labor market and those returning
after being discouraged and ceasing
to look for jobs have helped keep
the unemployment rate high even
as other economic indicators have
Some businesses aren't hiring
even though they are growing and
their profits are up due to improved
productivity, Rust said. She said other
factors contributing to high unem-
ployment are the inability of people
to sell their homes so they can move
to where jobs are available and a lack
of proper skills for those jobs.
I The sectors showing the strongest
job growth in December were health
services and private education, lei-
sure and hospitality and trade, trans-
portation and utilities.
Construction remains the biggest
job-losing sector, shrinking by 20,200
jobs from December to December.
Liberty County in the'Panhandle
had the state's lowest jobless rate
at 7.7 in December. It was followed
by Monroe, 7.9 percent; Alachua,
8.2 percent; Leon and Okaloosa, 8.3
percent, and Wakulla, 8.4 percent.
Most of those counties have high
proportions of government employ-
ment including universities and mili-
tary bases.
Flagler and Hendry counties post-
ed the highest unemployment rate of
15.7 percent each.
They were followed by Hernando,
14.5 percent; St Lucie, 14.1 percent;
Marion, 14 percent, and Indian
River, 13.6 percent.

When the many
planks of
national health
care reform
were being
debated last year, one part of
the package that many critics
latched onto was a clause per-
taining to doctors consulting
patients about end-of-life coun-
seling essentially, patients
having conversations with their
doctors about living wills and
appropriate or needed medical
treatments and tests when the
patient knows he or she may
have a limited time left.
On Jan. 1, new Medicare
rules went into effect that allow
the federal health insurance
program to reimburse doctors
for voluntary end-of-life counsel-
ing with patients. Funny how,
minus the furor over the crafting
of the legislation and the daily
news coverage on it, all the
hyperbole and scare language
that we heard about this change
regarding end-of-life counseling
has died down. Actually, it has
disappeared completely.
Because it's perfectly reason-
able that doctors should talk
with patients who know that
death is approaching about what
kind of medical care they want
and what they may not want,
about what goes into crafting liv-
ing wills and about health care
proxies who can make medical
decisions for a patient when that
that patient can no longer make
It should always be a patient's
decision whether to talk to a
doctor about these important
And, if patients choose to have
these consultations with their
doctors, their Medicare should
cover it
For Medicare to purposefully
not reimburse doctors for such
important sessions with individ-
ual patients because of political
conjecture and foolish propa-
ganda about death panels and
seniors with terminal conditions
being urged to commit suicide
would be ridiculous.
It would be wrong.

US slips to 9th freest economy

We're No. 9!
America has
slipped one spot
since last year
from Earth's
eighth freest economy in 2010,
according to 2011's Index of
Economic Freedom. This 17th
annual report, jointly published
by the Heritage Foundation and
the Wall Street Journal, sifts
through the wreckage caused
by government's turbocharged
acceleration during the Bush-
Obama years. America's slump-
ing score (down from No. 5 in
2008) confirms the urgent need
for Washington, D.C. to revital-
ize free markets and restrain
government intervention.
Among the Index's 179
countries, Hong Kong is rated
first, followed by Singapore,
Australia, New Zealand,
Switzerland, Canada, Ireland,
and Denmark. These nations
all outscored the US across 10
categories, including taxes, free
trade, regulation, monetary
policy, and corruption.
America barely made the Top
10. Bahrain was tenth, with 77.7
points, one decimal point behind
America's 77.8 rating. Chile
reached No. 11 with 77.4, just
0.4 points behind the US.
Even worse, with a score
below 80, the US is spending its
second year as a "mostly free"
economy. As it departed the
family of "free" nations in 2010,
it led the "mostly free" category.
Even within this less-than-illus-
trious group, America now lags
behind Ireland and Denmark.
How did our once unas-
sailable country wind up so
"The national government's
role in the economy has expand-
ed sharply in the past two years,
and the federal budget deficit is
extremely large, with gross pub-
lic debt approaching 100 percent
of GDP," explain the Index's
authors, Terry Miller and Kim
R. Holmes. "Interventionist


Deroy Murdock
responses to the economic
slowdown have eroded eco-
nomic freedom and long-term
competitiveness. Drastic leg-
islative changes in health care
and financial regulations have
retarded job creation and inject-
ed substantial uncertainty into
business investment planning."
Miller and Holmes also criti-
cize Washington for abandoning
the free-trade posture of earlier
years, an area where former
Democratic President Bill
Clinton boldly guided his party,
starting with the NAFTA trade
pact. Washington Democrats
these days scorn Clinton's suc-
cessful example. As Miller and
Holmes write: "Leadership and
credibility in trade also have
been undercut by protectionist
policy stances and inaction on
previously agreed free trade
agreements with South Korea,
Panama, and Colombia."
On fiscal freedom, the Index
marks the U.S. below aver-
age. The top American federal
income-tax rate is 35 percent,
versus a worldwide average
of 28.7 percent. At 35 percent,
America's federal corporate
tax outpaces the world's 24.8
percent average and increases
US exports ... of jobs. America's
overall average tax burden was
26.9 percent of GDP, compared
to 24.4 percent globally.
America also suffers a below-
average score for government
spending. Worldwide, such
expenditures average 33.5 per-
cent of GDP; in the US: 38.9
Compare America to Rwanda,
the Index's most-improved
nation. This landlocked African

nation leapfrogged 18 spots,
from No. 93 in 2010 to No. 75
today. How?
"Rwanda scores relatively
high in business freedom, fiscal
freedom, and labor freedom,"
Miller and Holmes observe.
"Personal and corporate tax
rates are moderate. With a
sound regulatory framework
that is conducive to private-
sector development, Rwanda
has achieved annual economic
growth of around 7 percent over
the past five years."
As I noted on my visit there
last month, Rwanda remains
poor, with a long list of chal-
lenges. Yet there is no denying
its self-confidence and unflag-
ging commitment to pro-market
modernization, Rwanda is mov-
ing on up.
America remains blessed with
wealth, durable institutions,
and creative, clever, industrious
Yet its self-doubt is fueled
by an insatiable state that con-
stantly devours more of the
nation's output, and with little to
show for its gobbling. Depleted,
America stumbles downhill.
Miller and Holmes surveyed
the globe and reached this
conclusion: Rather than multi-
billion-dollar stimuli and 2,000-
page regulatory behemoths,
"The best results are likely to be
achieved instead through policy
reforms that improve incen-
tives that drive entrepreneurial
activity, creating greater oppor-
tunities for investment and job
The path back to American
prosperity and pre-eminence lies
in Washington's bipartisan lead-
ership abiding by the previous

First ladies don't need a 'cause'

ell, more
if you will. I
guess Michelle
(Obama) had to pick some
"cause" to champion and try to
make a name for herself other
than "President's wife," which,
by the way, should be sufficient
for someone with no specific
accomplishments so far.
I have not seen too many attri-
butes given to her so far other
than her propensity for high-
price travel and fashion dressing
at taxpayers' expense and that's
not too popular.
Now, my real subject is these
food producers "giving in," so

to speak, to government telling
them what and how much of
certain ingredients to put into
their products.
I can certainly tell these
companies that they are risking
their base consumers' loyalty
when they alter the contents of
their most popular products to
fit these findings of how much
of "this or that" to put in. I have
discontinued some products
myself due to unacceptable
"altered taste."
I believe that the majority of
us have the ability to control
how much, if any, certain prod-
ucts to consume.
If we want to "eat or not, and
how much" it is certainly up to

us anyway. We are still, so far, in
control of our own health.
By the way, doesn't Walmart
know that a person could con-
ceivably just eat more of a prod-
uct, or is that the idea?
They should be careful
because, in my own case, I have
stopped buying "store brands" of
some items because the taste is
not as good.
Some of us "foodies," if you
will, go by taste as well as
maybe, healthy or not.
Anyway, first ladies don't need
to always be in the foreground.
So they don't need a "cause" to
espouse to assure that they are.

democrats who
are calling the
House's decisively
passed repeal of
Obamacare the
so-called Patient Protection
and Affordable Health Care" act
theater are hallucinating.
Perhaps it was theatrical
to include in the name of the
repeal act "job killing," though
that is what it is.
But I prefer melodrama to
dishonesty. Calling Obamacare
government mandates, sub-
sidies, price controls, taxes, and
rationed care -"patient protec-
tion" and "affordable" is the
height of dishonesty.
The House repeal vote was
important because the House
is the legislative body clos-
est to the people, and the
people voted unequivocally last
November to repudiate social-
ized medicine.
It is the beginning of respon-
sible government to start rep-
resenting what the American
people want and repeal is what
Americans voted for.
Although repudiation of
Obamacare was the most tan-
gible message of the 2010 elec-
tions, there were other impor-
tant messages.
Most Americans are sick of
the socialist direction in which
our great nation has been
moving. They are sick of dis-
honesty and word games ema-
nating from Washington and
politicians. And they are sick
of special interest groups in
Washington sucking the oxygen
out of all opportunities for good
public policy.
The "Affordable Health Care"
Act, besides being bad health
care policy, has all the above
characteristics duplicitous
Washington accounting games "
that pretend to save money by
spending it subsidizing all the
nation's health care, taking
what was already broken in
the way we deliver health care
most of it already being con-
trolled by government and third
party payers and giving us
more of it father than less, and
accomplishing all this by work-
ing with the big health care
special interests insurance
companies and pharmaceutical
But what makes me most
heartsick is to watch our great
and free nation transformed into
a second rate welfare state.
Again, even before the
"Affordable Health Care" act, our
health care system was already
largely taken over by govern-
ment Ninety percent of our
health care bills are paid by third
parties, and between Medicaid,
SCHIP, and Medicare, well over
half of American health care was
already directly controlled by
What else do you have to know
about what was wrong? Yet,
Obamacare's answer was to give
us more of all of it
I challenge any sitting
Democrat who continues to push
socialized medicine on us to
move into any of our inner cities
and find out first hand about life
on the government plantation.
The House repeal of
Obamacare was not theater. It
was reality TV.
The follow up act must be to
reform health care with real free-
dom and capitalism.

Shootout suspect a'career criminal'

AP Legal Affairs Writer

MIAMI By the time
police came to arrest him
on murder charges, 22-
year-old Johnny Simms -
whose many tattoos includ-
ed the word "savage" and
images laced with violence
- already had a long crimi-
nal history that began with
theft and trespass charges
when he was 14.
The Miami man killed in a
Thursday shootout that left
two police officers dead was
what police called a career
criminal: He'd been arrested
for cocaine and marijuana
trafficking, burglary, cartheft
and armed robbery, accord-
ing to a copy of Simms' crim-
inal history obtained Friday
by The Associated Press. He
was arrested 11 times as a
juvenile and became more
violent as the years passed.
Simms finally went to
prison in March 2007 for
grand. theft and robbery
convictions, getting out
on probation in February
2009, according to state
prison records. It would be
only a few months before
he was arrested again on
robbery and cocaine charg-
es and sent back to prison
in August 2010.
Prison officials meticu-
lously documented Simms'
numerous tattoos that
appeared to reflect his
criminal lifestyle. Those
included an AK-47 image
and the word "gun" on his
left hand; the word "sav-
age" on his right hand;
several dollar signs; the

tion of a shootout that erupted in a Miami neighborhood, kill-
ing two Miami-Dade police officers and a suspect Thursday.

words "Lil Pimp" on his
right arm; and "10-20-Life"
on his right hand a ref-
erence to Florida's manda-
tory sentences for using
guns in crimes.
Simms' second stretch in
prison lasted a few weeks,
mainly because of credit
for time served in jail. He
was released Sept. 3, 2010.
His probation provided no
requirements for keeping
tabs on him.
"This is a type of proba-
tion that is always objected
to by prosecutors," said
Ed Griffith, spokesman
for Miami-Dade County
State Attorney Katherine
Fernandez Rundle.
A few weeks after his
release came the slaying
that ultimately led to the fatal
police shootout.
According to a Miami
police affidavit, Simms over-

heard a phone conversation
involving his sister, 20-year-
old Shenica Simms, who had
gotten into an argument with
a man outside a battered-
looking apartment build-
ing where she was visiting
friends. Cornelious Larry,
27, had "started to curse and
verbally disrespect her" in
the parking lot on Oct. 16,
the affidavit said. '
Witnesses later told
police that Simms' broth-
er, 16-year-old Demetrius
Simms, was with Shenica
and was carrying a silver-
colored revolver. His sister
told officers that the young-
er brother, Demetrius,
warned Larry "to stop
disrespecting his sister,"
according to the police
affidavit. About that time
Johnny Simms rode up on
a bicycle and both brothers
confronted Larry.

Shenica Simms, accord-
ing to the affidavit, "said
she knew something bad
was about to happen so
she turned around to walk
away." Gunshots rang out
and Larry crumpled on a
staircase. Witnesses iden-
tified Johnny Simms as
Larry's killer; one saw him
hand the silver-colored
handgun back to his young-
er brother before they both
Eventually, the killing
brought a four-person team
of Miami-Dade fugitive
investigators Thursday to
the duplex in crime-ridden
Liberty City, where Simms
was living with his mother
and other relatives.
Cmdr. Nancy Perez, a
Miami-Dade police spokes-
woman, said previous
efforts to persuade Simms
through family members to
turn himself in had failed.
So the officers, wearing
body armor, knocked on
the door and Simms' moth-
er opened it.
Without warning, police
say Simms came out of
another room and shot at
the officers with a hand-
gun, killing veteran detec-
tives Roger Castillo, 41, and
Amanda Haworth, 44. A
memorial service has been
scheduled for Monday
at the AmericanAirlines
Simms was shot and
killed by detective Oscar
Placencia, who was not
hurt., A fourth member of
the fugitive team, detective
Deidre Beecher, suffered a
minor knee injury.

really wanted to tell her off,
but I held my tongue"; or
"I apologized to him even
though I don't think I was
in the wrong"?
It really is amazing that
we brag about being decep-
tive. Actually, the Bible
has another word for it.
In Matthew 15:7-8, Jesus
called the Pharisees "hypo-
crites" for honoring Him
with their lips, while their
hearts were far away.
Appropriately, the root
word of the original Greek
for "hypocrite" was descrip-
tive of persons in a play
who act a part or pretend
to be what they are not.
A close look at the life
of Jesus reveals that He
was very critical of this
trait. While sinners who
acknowledged their con-
dition were treated with
grace and forgiveness,
hypocrisy was consistently
met with stern warnings of
judgment. (See Matthew
15:7-9 and Luke 11:37-54)
In Matthew 12:33, the
Bible gives this perspec-
tive: "Make a tree good
and its fruit will be good,
or make a tree bad and its
fruit will be bad, for a tree
is recognized by its fruit."
The problem with leav-
ing a bad tree to produce
bad fruit is that it will
continue to do so bring-
ing forth nothing good!
In order to make a tree
good, you wouldn't just
hang healthy fruit on its
branches and declare it a
good tree. That would be
Likewise, when we rec-
ognize those thoughts and
feelings that would produce
bad fruit, instead of just
correcting our outward
behavior, it is our respon-
sibility to bring our hearts
to God in repentance. He
alone can change the con-
dition ol the heart.
Once our hearts are
"made good," we can act
out of the overflow of that
goodness and produce hon-
est good fruit.

"Y ou can spot a
Baptist church
from almost
any hilltop in
Alabama, so
it's not hard to find people
who agreed with their new
governor this week when
he said only Christians are
his brothers and sisters.
Even so, some of his
brothers and sisters
thought he could have
found a nicer way to say it.
It's unlikely that
Republican Gov. Robert
Bentley will suffer politi-
cally from his inauguration
day remarks, which he
made from a church pulpit
at a Martin Luther King Jr.
holiday service Monday.
"I don't think he was
too smart to say that,"
72-year-old Ron Brooks
said as he was getting his
hair cut at a barber shop
in Wetumpka, a subur-
ban town about 20 miles
north of Montgomery. But
Brooks, a retired employ-
ee of a defense contrac-
tor, said he's "inclined
to agree" with Bentley's
Baptist churches are a
fixture in every tiny cor-
ner of the state, many of
them Southern Baptist,
the same denomination
Bentley follows.
There are about 1.1
million members of about
3,300 Southern Baptist
churches in Alabama, said
Keith Hinson, a spokes-
man for the Alabama
Baptist State Board of
Missions. There are
believed to be as many

The Rev. Steve Jones (left), Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (center) and Rabbi Jonathan
Miller attend a news conference Wednesday in Montgomery, Ala. Bentley is apologizing for
his remarks about only Christians being his brothers and sisters.

as 600,000 others who
are members of Baptist
churches that are not affil-
iated with the Southern
Baptist Convention.
Keith Nicholls, a poll-
ster at the University of
South Alabama, said in his'
polls of Alabama residents,
often as many as 70 per-
cent identify themselves
as "born-again Christians."
Bentley's comments
Monday shocked and
offended some nonbeliev-
ers and member of other
faiths and stoked criticism
from across the country.
The governor apolo-
gized Wednesday for the
remarks after meeting
with leaders of Alabama's

Jewish community.
A lifelong Baptist who
works at a two-pump
gas station in rural Rock
Creek, Angel Byram said
Thursday she understands
what Bentley meant with
his original comments.
"I get what he was say-
ing. It didn't bother me,"
said Byram, who was sell-
ing a soft drink and head-
ache powders to a coal
miner at the small store
on Warrior River Road.
"But being in a public
office like that (Bentley)
should have thought of
others," she said. "If I
wasn't Baptist and didn't
believe that way I would
have been offended."

Byram said it was good
that Bentley apologized.
"But I wonder if he really
meant it or was just saying
it like politicians do," she
Kay Cummins of
Hueytown said she wasn't
offended by Bentley's
speech and didn't think he
should have apologized.
"I wouldn't have," said
Cummins, working in the
fellowship hall at First
Cumberland Presbyterian
Church, which she
"I see really nothing
wrong with what he said.
I think it was innocent,
and people are trying to
make a mountain out of a

molehill," said Cummins,
who voted for Bentley.
"I was offended that he
hadn't even been in office
as hour and they were
already taking h'im apart
word by word."
Talk radio shows in
Montgomery were full
of chatter after Bentley's
remarks, with some call-
ers saying the governor
shouldn't have apologized.
Retired Auburn his-
tory professor Wayne
Flynt, who has written a
book about the history
of Baptists in the state,
said the controversy
won't damage Bentley
in Alabama, where can-
didates typically portray
themselves as Christians,
with campaign commer-
cials often showing them
at church.
"I don't think this hurts
him at all within the state.
I think it really helps him
with his very conservative
base," said Flynt.
Flynt said Bentley's
problem was that when he
made the remark about
his "brothers and sisters"
he was speaking in "insid-
er language" that-was
misunderstood by many
outside the Baptist faith.
Bentley made the
remarks at the predomi-
nantly black church where
King first served as a
pastor in the 1950s. Flynt
said he believes the gov-
ernor was trying to show
the black Baptists that he
includes them in his fam-
ily, but went too far when
he said non-Christians
were not his brothers and

Only God knows when Jesus will come

Much has
since the
first let-
ter to the
editor a few weeks ago by
Mr. Krahnke. Signs have
gone up, people standing
on street corners holding
signs, teenagers pass-
ing out material at the
Christmas parade, and
articles in the Reporter
about billboards going
up across the nation pro-
claiming they know that
May 21, 2011 is when
Jesus will come for his
church and on October
2011 God will destroy the
earth and everything in it.
It's sad, but it seems
that about every 20-25
years Satan sends some-
one along that he has
deceived to take advan-
tage of poor unlearned


Hugh Sherrill Jr.
They claim to come up
with some new revelation
from God (when there
is no new revelation,
it's already in the Bible)
that tells them they now
know when Jesus is com-
ing back for his church.
Again read Matthew 24:36.
Oh, by the way, this guy
Harold Camping, presi-
dent of Family Radio, is
calling on people to come

out of the church. (See
"wecanknow. com")
In the 1960s and the
1980s, some others like
him came along to deceive
people with this same
Statistics show that a
high percentage of people
are followers, not leaders.
They have to have
someone to follow. They
don't take the time and
pay the price to learn what
God says in his holy word,
the Bible.
Someone once said that
the Bible is the least-read
bestseller of all time.
Most people only know
what someone told them
about God and the Bible.
In the gospel of
Matthew, chapter 24,
Jesus warns us at least
five times about not being
deceived and that many

false prophets will come
along to deceive people.
These people are false
prophets who are spread-
ing this false information.
We must pray for them
and our city of Lake City
and our nation that God's
people will rise up and
dispute this doctrine.
Lake City does not need
another group of people
who distort God's word.
You say, "Wait a minute,
this is America, we have
freedom of religion." That
freedom of religion w. s
never meant to support
false prophets.
God calls on his people,
especially his pastors,
preachers, and evange-
lists, to stand up and cry
out against these people.
They cause confusion and
cause unlearned people to
question the truth.

In Genesis, Chapter 2
and 3, God places Adam
and Eve in the Garden of
Eden and tells them to
eat all the fruits, except
the fruit of the Tree of
Knowledge; and if they
did, they would surely die.
In Genesis 3:1, the serpent
(Devil), when speaking
to Eve, only had to raise
a question in her mind to
convince her it was OK.
The Devil said, "Yea hath
God said?" This confused
Eve and you know the rest
of the story.
So church, I plead with
you, don't listen to these
Ask your pastors to
speak out, because Jesus
will come "as a thief' to
call his children home.

preacher in Lake City.

Soft words hide spending cuts' pain

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -Terms like "cut-
ting spending" and "raising taxes,"
though they sound straightforward
enough, are becoming battlegrounds
in the Republicans' and Democrats'
bids to frame the debate over how to
cope with the growing national debt.
Newly empowered congressional
Republicans are playing down the big
impact their proposed spending cuts
would have on millions of Americans,
according to Democrats and some
bipartisan groups.
Prominent Republicans, for

instance, have said a return to 2008
spending levels would not amount
to "cutting," even though billions of
federal dollars would be lopped off.
Another GOP leader minimized the
economic impact of firing thousands
of federal workers, saying overall
employment would rise.
Bill Hoagland, a former Republican
budget aide now with the Committee
for a Responsible Federal Budget, said
many elected officials are misleading
the public. It's easy to say that elimi-
nating "waste, fraud and abuse" will
balance the budget, he said, but the
huge programs that must be reined
in include Social Security, Medicare

and Medicaid, which are barely being
People talk about "cutting the gov-
ernment," Hoagland said, "but the
real problems come right out of our
pockets." That's true of those "entitle-
ment" programs, he said, as well as
federal highways, border security,
education and other programs.
Although Republicans are leading
the budget talks for now, Democrats
also have been coy about fiscal real-
ities. They have defined the mid-
dle class as families making up to
$250,000, and said a return to higher
Bush-era tax rates would not consti-
tute a tax increase.

Doc: Giffords heard cheers

The caravan carrying
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Friday as she left the hospi-
tal in Tucson, Ariz., where
she dazzled doctors with her
recovery from being shot in
the head two weeks ago, and
was moved to Houston for
Children sat on their par-
ents' shoulders as the motor-
cade passed. Many waved.
Others carried signs wish-
ing "Gabby" well.
"It was very emotional
and very special," said Dr.
Randall Friese, who traveled
with Giffords.
By Friday afternoon, after
a 930-plus-mile trip that doc-
tors said went flawlessly,
Giffords was in an intensive
care unit at Texas Medical
Center, where a new team of
doctors planned to start her
therapy immediately.
After several days of eval-
uation, she will be sent to
the center's rehabilitation
hospital, TIRR Memorial
Giffords has "great reha-
bilitation potential," said Dr.
Gerardo Francisco, chief
medical officer of Memorial
"She will keep us busy,
and we will keep her busy as
well," he said.
The first thing is to deter-,
mine the extent of Giffords'
injuries and the impact on
her abilities to move and
communicate. She hasn't
spoken yet, and it's unknown
whether she will suffer per-
manent disabilities.

A police motorcade leads the ambulance carrying U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., away
from University Medical Center Friday in Tucson, Ariz. Giffords is being transported to a medi-
cal facility in Houston.

A gunman shot Giffords
and 18 other people on Jan.
8 as she met with constitu-
ents outside a grocery store
in Tucson. Six people died.
The suspect in the attack,
Jared Loughner, 22, is being
held in federal custody.
Since she was hospital-
ized at University Medical
Center in Tucson, Giffords
has made progress nearly
every day, with character-

ence seemingly yields a

Tracy Culbert, a nurse
who accompanied Giffords
and the congresswoman's
husband, Houston-based
astronaut Mark Kelly, on
the flight, described her as
being captivated by a ring on

Culbert's finger. The nurse
took it off and Giffords put it
on her own hand.
"She was taking it off my
hand and I asked if she want-

replied, "Do you want me to
"She's a very gentle per-
son," Culbert said, "and her
personality is coming out
with her touches, the way she
touches us, the way she looks
at us, and I am very lucky to
know her."
Then, she added: "I have a
lot of hope for her, and I know
she's going to do great"
Doctors said Giffords will
stay in the intensive care unit
for now because she has a
drain to remove fluid buildup
in her brain. She was going
to begin rehab immediately,
with a session scheduled for

Friday afternoon.
Because part of her skull
was removed during sur-
gery, a specially made hel-
met was made to protect her
brain. Friese said Giffords'
husband asked them to
make another one with
the Arizona flag on it
"We immediately got one
the next day," Friese said.
Specialists ranging from
physical and occupational
therapists to speech thera-
pists and psychologists will
give a slew of tests to see
what she can and cannot do.
They'll determine the
strength of her legs and her
ability to stand and walk;
the strength of her arms,
and whether she can brush
her teeth or comb her hair;
whether she can safely swal-
low on her own; how well
she thinks and communi-
cates not just her ability

Higher gas prices
coming this spring
Gas pump prices that
are around $3 a gallon now
may seem like a bargain by
the "time your kids are on
Easter egg hunts.
Pump prices have risen
nearly 9 percent since Dec.
1 and topped $3.10 a gal-
lon this week. That's the
highest level since October
2008. The price may rise
or fall a little over the next
few months, but analysts
expect it to range between
$3.20 and $3.75 gallon by
March and April ahead of
the summer driving sea-
The national average for
regular gasoline was about
$3.12 a gallon on Friday,
according to AAA, Wright
Express and Oil Price
Information Service. That's
nearly 12 cents more than
a month ago and 38 cents
above a year ago.
Average pump prices
range from $2.81 to $3.70
in major cities. For exam-
ple, the average in Salt
Lake City is $2.74 a gallon
and in New Orleans it's
$2.97 a gallon. Drivers in
San Francisco pay $3.44 a
gallon, and in Honolulu gas
is $3.58 a gallon.

Trial date set
for arms suspect
yer for a former Soviet
military officer accused of
offering to sell weapons
to a terrorist group said
Friday that she'll challenge
the government's case on
the grounds that it has
no jurisdiction to pros-
ecute him in the United
States and that it violated
Thailand's laws when it
recorded him on the day of
his arrest.
Sabrina Shroff, a court-
appointed attorney, told
U.S. District Judge Shira
Scheindlin of her plans as
the judge set a Sept. 12
trial date for Viktor Bout.
Bout's wife and mother
were in court Friday and
he winked at them as he
entered court.
Bout, 43, was extradited
to the U.S. from Thailand
two months ago to face
conspiracy charges that
accuse him of agreeing to,
sell powerful weapons to
the Revolutionary Armed
Forces of Colombia, also
known as FARC, classified
by Washington as a narco-
terrorist group. He has

pleaded not guilty.
He was arrested
in March 2008 at a
Bangkok hotel after
a Drug Enforcement
Administration sting opera-
tion using informants who
posed as FARC officials.
He was accused of agree-
ing to smuggle missiles
and rocket launchers to
the FARC, and conspir-
ing to kill U.S. officers or
employees. A conviction
could bring a mandatory
minimum 25-year prison
Shroff said Bout can-
not be prosecuted in the
United States because
none of the alleged crimes
occurred here.

Bid to toss out
verdict rejected
NEW YORK A judge
refused Friday to toss out
the conviction of the first
Guantanamo detainee to
be tried in a civilian court,
saying the evidence was
sufficient for the jury to
conclude his "knowing and
willing participation" in the
1998 bombing of two U.S.
embassies in Africa.
U.S. District Judge
Lewis A. Kaplan rejected
as "deeply flawed" the
arguments by defense law-
yers, who said the verdict
against Ahmed Ghailani
should be tossed because
it was inconsistent for the
jury to convict him on
a single count involving
the attacks and exonerate
him on 284 other counts.
The twin bombings killed
224 people, including 12
The judge said

believed there was ade-
quate evidence to convict

Ghailani was convicted

that 26-year-old founder

Craig Howard's

his fourth year with the

is, will he be here?
There's no reason for
the Tigers to get worked
up about the direction
Howard decides to take.

he grew up in. The
Raiders play only
25 miles away from
Howard's hometown and
going home is always
something that should be
considered, especially at
his age.
Oregon is where
Howard began his
coaching career, and it
wouldn't seem out of the
question for him to end
it there.
Among his coaching
stops have been Oregon
Tech, Portland State,
Edward Waters, Rice and
Oregon at the collegiate
level. He's had extensive
high school experience
as well, most of it coming
in the state of Florida.

There have been
plenty of examples of

Some of Barry Bonds' for-
mer teammates, along with
other retired Major League
Baseball players and per-
haps current player Jason
Giambi, will have to testify
at the slugger's upcoming
perjury trial, a federal judge
said Friday.
Lawyers for Bonds
argued at a hearing before
U.S. District Court Judge
Susan Illston that the play-
ers should be excluded
because of their ties to
Bonds' former trainer Greg
Anderson, who is refusing
to testify against the slug-


Illston previously barred
much of the evidence relat-
ing to Anderson because
of his willingness to go to
prison on contempt charges
rather than testify at the
trial set to start March 21'.
Without his testimony,
it could be impossible to
prove that urine samples
that purportedly tested pos-
itive for steroids had been
collected from Bonds by
Illston also said she would
consider on a case-by-case
basis whether to exclude
other evidence seized from
Anderson's home and else-
where that prosecutors
want to show the jury.
The judge said prosecu-
tors could call the athletes
to testify about their rela-

The second half belonged
to Trevor Stout, who scored
less than a minute into the
half and again with four
minutes remaining.

government claims supplied
Bonds with performance-
enhancing drugs.
Bonds, 46, has pleaded
not guilty to 10 counts of
perjury and an obstruction
charge after telling a grand
jury in December 2003 that
he never knowingly took
steroids. Bonds testified
that Anderson supplied him
with all kinds of substances,
but he assumed they were
all legal supplements.
Some players were
expected to testify that
Anderson supplied- them
with drugs and informed
clients the substances were
illegal steroids. Prosecutors
hope the testimony will
persuade jurors that
Bonds had to have known
that Anderson was giving
him illicit performance

Jets get mileage from passing attack

Associated Press

Matchups for the AFC
championship game
between the New York Jets
and Pittsburgh Steelers at
Heinz Field follow.
When the Jets have
the ball:
Don'tbe fooledbytheJets'
claims they need to pound
the ball on the ground to
win. For one thing, nobody
pounds the Steelers, who
allowed the fewest yards
rushing, a mere 1,004, this
season. For another, the
Jets have thrown the ball
well recently, particularly
in last week's shocker at
New England. QB Mark
Sanchez (6) has completed
60.7 percent of his passes,
had three TDs against the
Patriots, and his 91.6 rating
is nothing to ignore.
He also has dynamic
receivers in former Steelers
star Santonio Holmes (10),
the MVP of Pittsburgh's
February 2009 Super Bowl
triumph, and Braylon
Edwards (17), and reliable
ones in Jerricho Cotchery
(89) and TE Dustin Keller
New York's offensive line
is a strength even without
injured RT Damien Woody
(Achilles' tendon). Nick
Mangold (74) is a Pro Bowl
center and RG Brandon
Moore (65) probably
deserved to go to Hawaii.
Still, the defense New
York faces is far more fierce
and formidable than what it
saw in Indianapolis or New
England the last two weeks.
Neither the Colts nor the
Patriots have playmak-
ers like S Troy Polamalu
(43), who could wind up
anywhere on the field at
any time, and LBs James
Harrison (92) and LaMarr
Woodley (56). The Jets must
get solid performances
from tackles D'Brickashaw
Ferguson (60) and Wayne
Hunter (78),. plus depend-
able blitz pickups from RBs
Shonn Greene (23) and
LaDainian Tomlinson (21),
along with steady veteran
FB Tony Richardson (49).

New York Jets running back Joe McKnight (25) splits cornerback Kyle Wilson (left) and safety
Emanuel Cook during practice Wednesday in Florham Park, N.J.

Tomlinson has had a
rebirth in New York. He
and Greene have combined
for 271 yards rushing in
the two postseason games.
If they get anywhere near
their playoff averages
Sunday, it bodes well for
the Jets.
Regardless, Sanchez
must remain consistent and
throw in some big plays
such as the TD pass to
Holmes last week or the
one to Edwards that set up
the winning field goal in
Indy. Keller should expect
to be rocked by Polamalu
and S Ryan Clark every
time he touches the ball,
but Pittsburgh's corner-
backs are beatable.
When the Steelers have
the ball:
Don't be fooled by the
Steelers' claims they need
to pound the ball on the
ground to win, either. The
running game might be a
bit more critical for them,
and Rashard Mendenhall
(34) can be a beast; he
rushed for 1,273 yards and
13 touchdowns during the
season, but managed only
46 yards against Baltimore.
Pittsburgh's offensive
line, banged up all year, will
be tested' by a resurgent
Jets defense that pressured

Peyton Manning and Tom
Brady. Rookie C Maurkice
Pouncey (53) has more
than held his own, but QB
Ben Roethlisberger (7)
doesn't always get the same
support from the rest of
his blockers. Of course, few
quarterbacks can manufac-
ture something out of chaos
the way Roethlisberger
does and has done in
winning two Super Bowls.
He masterfully led the
comeback from a 14-point
deficit against Baltimore
last week.
Although Hines Ward
(86) is the key receiver in
big spots, Mike Wallace
(17) figures to get the Revis
Treatment. Shutdown CB
Darrelle Revis (24) will
be a huge challenge for
Wallace, Ward, Emmanuel
Sanders (88) and Antonio
Brown (84), one of the
heroes of the win over the
Ravens. Just like Manning
and Brady, Roethlisberger
probably will go after CB
Antonio Cromartie (31),
and look over the middle
for TE Heath Miller (83).
New York doesn't cover
tight ends over the middle
particularly well.
Even if the Jets get pene-
tration similar to what they
got against the Patriots from

Shaun Ellis (92) and Calvin
Pace (97), that doesn't mean
Roethlisberger will be sty-
mied. His ability to take
hits, avoid the rush and
throw on the run make him
dangerous everywhere.
Special Teams:
A strength of the Jets
under coordinator Mike
Westhoff, with Brad Smith
(16) the main threat. Smith
ranked second in the league
with 1,432 yards on kick
returns, a 28.6 average,
and two touchdowns. The
Steelers 'very well remem-
ber the 97-yarder Smith
had to open New York's
22-17 victory at Pittsburgh
on Dec. 19. The Steelers
counter mostly with Brown
on returns. Brown had one
kickoff runback for a score
during the season. Both
teams are solid on kickoff
coverages in particular.
Pittsburgh changed
placekickers in midseason,
from Jeff Reed to Shaun
Suisham (6), and- it worked
out nicely. The turf at Heinz
field can be problematic,
but Suisham went 14 for 15
on field goals. New York's
Nick Folk (2) isn't quite
so reliable, even missing a
30-yarder at Foxborough.
He did hit the 32-yarder
that lifted the Jets past the

Packers use ground game

Associated Press

Matchups for the NFC
championship game
between the Green Bay
Packers and Chicago Bears
at Soldier Field follow.
When the Packers
have the ball:
Until the playoffs began,
the Packers were a pass
first, second, third and all
the' time team. QB Aaron
Rodgers (12) did not have a?
go-to running back all sea-
son after Ryan Grant was
hurt. Rodgers even was the
second-leading rusher dur-
ing a 10-6 season.
But in Philadelphia for
the wild-card round, rook-
ie RB James Starks (44)
emerged with 123 yards
rushing, and he had 66
tough yards against Atlanta.
Rodgers not only is the
Packers' main weapon, he's
been the top quarterback in
the playoffs.
A pass rush is a must
for the Bears, which means
DLs Julius Peppers (90) and
Israel Idonije (71) have to
be factors early and often.
LBs Brian Urlacher (54)
and Lance Briggs (55) had
strong years and need to
get after Rodgers.
Greg Jennings (85),
Donald Driver (80), James
Jones (89) and Jordy
Nelson (87) are a formi-
dable receiving corps, but
Rodgers will find anyone
in a Packers uniform. He
also has scrambling skills
and will take off when a
play breaks down, making
something out of nothing.
Again, Urlacher and Briggs
will be the keys to short-
circuiting Rodgers' runs.
Green Bay's offensive
line has improved through-
out the season, with RG

Josh Sitton (71) the stand-
out. He'll see lots of DTs
Tommie Harris (91) and
Anthony Adams (95).
The Bears need to be
aggressive in coverage with
CBs Charles Tillman (33),
Tim Jennings (28) and D.J.
Moore (30) certain to be
busy. Chicago's best sec-
ondary player is safety
Chris Harris. If Harris is
able to roam despite a hip.
injury, he could be a differ-
ence maker.
When the Bears have
the ball:
Chicago was 4-3 going
into its off week, and the
offense got something of
an overhaul. Coordinator
Mike Martz and coach
Lovie Smith reined in QB
Jay Cutler (6), cutting down
his erratic play; revamped
the offensive line, where
C Olin Kreutz (57) is the
leader; and became more
dependent on RB Matt
Forte (22).
Forte responded with
1,069 yards rushing and
six touchdowns. Cutler also
responded and the Bears
won seven of nine to win
the NFC North ahead of
Green Bay.
Cutler, who like Rodgers
is mobile he had two TDs
rushing and two passing
against Seattle last week,
tying a record set in 1954
and '55 by Otto Graham
- has advantage over his
quarterback buddy (they
text each other frequently,
although presumably not
this week). Greg Olsen (82)
is an elite tight end, even if
he doesn't get much notice.
Olsen was unstoppable
against the Seahawks.
The Packers can be run
on and that's what Chicago
wants to do from the outset.
If Green Bay gets stingy on

Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher catches a ball
during practice at Halas Hall in Lake Forest, III. on Thursday.

the ground, WRs Johnny
Knox (13), Earl Bennett
(80) and Devin Hester (23)
need to win matchups with
top-notch CBs Charles
Woodson (21) and Tramon
Williams (38), whose
70-yard interception return
helped do in Atlanta last
Saturday. That's a very
tough chore for Chicago.
One key could be backup
RB Chester Taylor (29),
who along with Forte can
be dangerous as a receiv-
er ,out of the backfield.
Checkdowns could provide
a lifeblood for the Bears,
except that sensational LB

Clay Matthews (52) is cer-
tain to be nearby. Matthews
is the Pack's difference
maker on D.
Special Teams:
The edge here belongs
to Chicago. which has a
superb punt returned in the
record-setting Hester. He
ran back three punts for
Robbie Gould (9) made
25 of 30 field goals and has
range. Green Bay's Mason
Crosby hit 22 of 28 tries.
Smith and the Packers'
Mike McCarthy each

McCarthy and his staff

number of injuries 15 on

six key defensive players,
Grant and TE Jermichael
Finley yet found the
kind of depth that carries
teams deep into the play-
offs. Green Bay has peaked
in the last month.
Dom Capers' defense is
fast, smart and aggressive.

Son yearns to find a way

to connect with critical dad

DEAR ABBY: I have a
father who's always mean
to me. He finds reasons to
yell at me for example,
the trash isn't taken out or
the dishes aren't washed.
He isn't involved in my edu-
cational life at all. When my
teachers request a confer-
ence with my parents, he
almost never shows up.
When I graduated from ele-
mentary school and middle
school, he didn't come to
either of the ceremonies.
I'll talk to my dad about
these things sometimes,
and he says he's sorry and
the next day he'll buy me
something to try and make
it up to me. He can be really
nice when he wants to be,
but most of the time he's a
mean person. He is always
putting me down, calling
me an idiot and saying I'm
worthless and a good-for-
nothing son. I really want
to become friends with
my father, but it seems he
doesn't. What can I do? -
THER: You may not be
the perfect son, but you
are NOT good-for-nothing,
worthless or an idiot What
you have described is sad,
because this may be a "par-
enting technique" your dad

Abigail Van Buren
learned from his own fa-
ther. I don't know whether
he's an alcoholic, a worka-
holic or what other rea-
sons there may be for his
absence and his guilt. But
"Father of the Year" he's
not, and if you want a male
you can look up to, you will
have to find one elsewhere.
Talk to your mother about
this if you haven't, and ask
her to guide you. You have
my sympathy.
and his girlfriend of 13
years, "Liza," broke up,
and my son has moved out
of the house they bought
together. They still have a
lot to settle, but so far, they
remain on reasonably good
tThe news of their split has
left my wife and me feeling
bad. We developed a bond
with Liza over. the years
and we are unsure how to
proceed from here. We feel
she has become a part of
our family, especially since
she has no real family of

her own.
We would like to express
our sorrow for their break-
up, wish her the best in the
future and, perhaps, main-
tain friendly contact. We do
not want to upset our son
by doing this.
Please advise me on how
we should proceed. What
is the proper approach for
parents and other family
members in this situation?
asking the wrong person.
The person you should dis-
cuss this with is your son.
While it is understandable
that you feel Liza is a mem-
ber of the family, ,the truth
is she isn't in the literal
sense. The extent to which
you keep her in your lives
may depend upon the cir-
cumstances of the breakup.
While the extended family
may wish to maintain re-
lationships with her on an
individual basis, whether
ybur son would be comfort-
able having her present
during family holidays is
yet to be determined.

bAo~P!TAL.~oWM 2



ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Acting impul-
sively will not solve your
problems. Concentrate
more on what you can do to
utilize your talents. A rela-
tionship you form is likely to
confuse you. For now, enjoy
the company but don't make
any promises. ***
TAURUS (April20-May
20): The more you interact
with others, the better you
will feel about yourself and
your life. Use your knowl-
edge and wisdom to combat
any setback you face. Your
negotiation skills will be
stellar, so don't be afraid to
speak up. *****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You can fix up your
home and make changes
that will allow you to be
more productive. An invest-
ment that produces extra
cash will make life easier
and give you a chance to
achieve some of your per-
sonal goals. **
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Do your home-
work before you make
changes at home. You may
want to confront someone
who will be affected by your
decisions and plans. Join
forces instead of causing
animosity. Speak from the
heart ****
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): You need to. get out

Eugenia Last

and explore new avenues
if you want to put some ex-
citement and adventure into
your life. Love is in the stars
but, if you move too quickly,
you could get hurt or disap-
point someone. Slow down
and savor the moment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put more effort into
home and family. Plan some-
thing you can enjoy with
young and old alike. The
thought you put into pleas-
ing others will enhance your
reputation and help you gain
approval for a project you
want to pursue. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't give in to pres-
sure or bullying. The way to
handle someone's threats is
to say no and walk away. You
have too much to lose if you
fold when you should be do-
ing your own thing. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Calculate your
moves and put your strat-
egy into play. Don't take
chances when so much is at
stake. Practical application
will bring greater results
and lead to an interesting
connection with someone
who has something to offer
in return. ****

22-Dec. 21): If you believe
in what you are doing, don't
let anyone deter you from
following through. You may
feel limited due to a wage
freeze or being in a posi-
tion that leads nowhere. It
may be time to rethink your
game plan or to check out
other options. 2 **
22-Jan. 19): Adding value
to what you already have
will make a difference in
the future. Think ahead
and you will find a way to
ease your stress and accom-
modate your needs. Give
a gentle push if you need
to get someone's approval.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): There is a good
chance you can get involved
in a moneymaking busi-
ness if you divide your time
up properly. Working from
home or in your spare time
can be a profitable setup.
Be adaptable and available.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Your exper-
tise, coupled with your
experience and work ethic
will enable you to pull off
something not many people
could do. You'll be an asset
to any group you volunteer
to help. Don't let a personal
matter cause you to miss a
great opportunity. ***
