The council voted 16-1 to allow the Downtown Investment Authority to move the USS Adams to town. The ship will be moored by the vacant Maxwell House plant. Joe Snowberger, commodore of the Jacksonville Historic Ship Association, says the Navy should turn the ship over within six months. The group will then work to refurbish the vessel with the goal of displaying it on the river by the end of 2015.2 killed, 6 injured in semi-truck, van crash ORLANDO Â— Two people are dead and six more were taken to a central Florida hospital following an early morn ing crash between a passenger van and a semi-truck.

The U.S. AttorneyÂ’s Office announced Friday that charges had been filed against 38-year-old Johnathon Mathew Garrett. Garrett on Wednesday allegedly called the Social Security Administration offices angrily several times and used profanity. Officials say he told an employee during one call that he was going to Â“come down thereÂ” and Â“blowÂ” the building up. Garrett was eventually arrested at his home. He could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if he is convict ed of the charges.

Bill and Hillary Rodham ClintonÂ’s daughter had been working at the net work since 2011, sporadi cally doing feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work. Politico magazine reported earlier this year that NBC was paying her $600,000 a year. Â“I loved watching the Â‘Making a DifferenceÂ’ stories about remarkable people and organizations making a profound differ ence in our country and our world,Â” Clinton said in a statement posted on her Facebook page. Â“I am grateful NBC gave me the opportunity to continue this important legacy.Â” She was initially hired to do stories for Brian WilliamsÂ’ Â“Rock CenterÂ” newsmagazine, but that program was canceled. Her work occasionally appeared on NBCÂ’s Â“Nightly News.Â” Her exit removes some potential awkwardness for the network if her moth er runs for president in 2016. NBC made certain to keep Clinton off the air around the time her mother was making media appearances to promote a book, to avoid any appear ance of conflict. NBC also received some criticism when stories about her salary appeared; the net work didnÂ’t comment on the reports. HOW TO REAC H USMain number .......

Delivered to your job site today 1005 W. Howard St. Live Oak, FL 32060 Scott pitches new round of tax cutsBy JIM TURNER The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEEA rollback in vehi cle-registration fees, the key part of a $500 million package of tax and fee cuts approved this spring, kicked in Monday as Gov. Rick Scott starts to campaign for a new round of tax cuts. The election-year reduction in vehicle-registration fees (SB 156), one of two new laws that went into effect Monday, is expected to save motorists $17 to $25 a year depending on the size of the vehicles. The other new law (SB 242) is intended to keep people from stealing the identities of children. The Keeping I.D. Safe (KIDS) Act, backed by Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, would allow parents or guardians to open a file in their childs name with a major consumer credit bureau and then immediately put a freeze on the account. However, the reduction in vehicle-registration fees will be the law highlighted over the next two weeks as Scott goes out on his latest campaign tour, this time hop-scotching the state with a pledge to cut $1 billion in taxes over the next two years. At each stop, Scott will maintain support for a number of sales-tax shopping holidays, along with touting plans to cut the communications-services tax imposed on cable and phone services, eliminate a manufacturing sales tax, phase out both the corporate income tax and a sales tax on commercial leases and enact a constitutional amendment that would prevent residential property taxes from being increased when home values dont go up. Little information was immediately available Friday about how each cut could impact the state budget or local government revenues. The planned tax-cut tour follows similar campaign runs in which Scott has pledged to maintain or increase funding for transportation, the environment and schools. During the tour, scheduled to touch down in 28 cities, Scott will also play up that the vehicle-registration fees were raised as part of a 2009 law signed by Democratic gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist, then the Republican governor. Crists campaign sent out a release seeking to re-label Scotts campaign stops as the empty promises tax tour. Scott considered the vehicle-registration fee reduction one of his critical priorities during the spring legislative session. The cut to vehicle-registration fees is expected to trim state revenue by $309.1 million during the current 2014-15 fiscal year and $394.6 million in later years, when the cuts will be in effect for a full 12 months. The vehicle fee change was included as part of the wide-ranging, $500 million patchwork of awesomeness tax package, so named by one of its chief architects, House Finance & Tax Chairman Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne. Among the items in the package were sales-tax holidays, a reduction in the insurance premium tax on bail-bond premiums, and the permanent elimination of sales taxes on college meal plans, therapeutic pet foods, child car seats and bicycle helmets for kids. Scott has made cutting taxes and fees a major focus of his administration and his re-election campaign. The Republican first pledged to eliminate the states corporate income tax when he ran in 2010, along with calling for a $1.4 billion property-tax cut as part of a sweeping economic plan he said would not reduce school funding. Efforts to cut taxes on commercial leases and the communications-services tax have stalled in the Legislature in recent years. And Scott in 2013 requested a permanent tax cut for manufacturing machinery. Instead he had to wait until the final week of the legislative session before getting lawmakers to include a three-year temporary cut as part of a larger economic-incentives package. Jack Hibbert LuffmanMr. Jack Hibbert Luffman, 92, of Lake City, passed away peacefully on Friday August 29, 2014 at the North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville after an extended illness. He was born in Oxford, Mississippi on June 6, 1922 to the late Albert Edward and Nellie Nell Adams Luffman. He has lived in Lake City since 1988, having moved here from Miami, Florida. He was an Air al Aviation Administration for 26 years and was a member of the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church. He served in the United States Coast Guard form 1942-1946. He loved to spare time. He is preceded in death by his sister: Betty Carter. He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years: Mae Luffman of Lake City, FL; son: Alan Luffman of Gulfport, MS and daughter: Jan Marie Luffman Norris (George L.) of Louisa, KY; a sister: Peggy Simon of Melbourne, FL; granddaughter: Jennifer Luffman of Gulfport, MS; two grandsons: Adam and Derek (Destiny) Norris of Lake City, FL. Several loving niec es and nephews also survive. Funeral services for Mr. Luffman will be conducted on Wednesday September 3, 2014 at 10 A.M. in the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church ating.

Marion Ave., Lake City, 32025. Please sign the online guestbook at ParrishFamilyFuneralHome.comOBITUARIES The sheriffs office SWAT and hostage negotiations teams made numerous attempts to contact Tolley but failed, according to an LCPD news release. After evacuating area residents authorities entered the residence, where they found the young girls unharmed. The girls were turned over to family members. Scott Bennett, who said he planned to stay at his mothers house for the night while she was out of town, was turned away when he tried to enter the neighborhood late Saturday. I drove up the hill, saw a ton of cops and knew something had gone wrong, Bennett said. The cops told me there had been a high profile incident. And when I told them I was a few houses down on the right, they thought for a second it had happened at my moms house, but it turned out to be the next-door neighbor. Bennett said he estimated there was a police car every 30 to 40 yards along the street, and said he decided to leave after waiting 30 minutes. Although his mother did not know Tolley that well, he said, I heard the guy had some issues with his family life. While some residents were out of town for the holiday weekend, others were still visibly shaken Monday and declined comment to a reporter. One long-time resident, who declined to be identified, said the incident had rocked the normally quiet neighborhood. Most everyones been here forever 35, 40 years, she said. We all know each other. However, she said she did not know Tolley very well. The Columbia County Property Appraisers website showed Tolley bought the home in July 2010. Police did not say what kind of weapon he had.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com W ho knew there were that many Teslas quietly motoring through our town any given day? The folks at Tesla, thatÂ’s who.They had the good sense to build a charging station, called a Â“supercharger,Â” out at the I-75/US 90 interchange, and itÂ’s been quite a hit. So much so, a Tesla Motors Club chapter has decided to hold a meeting right here in Lake City next Saturday. How cool is that?Electric cars arenÂ’t for everyone, of course. Teslas can only go 250 miles or so before a 30-minute recharge is required. And even with those kinks one day worked out, nobodyÂ’s saying electric cars will solve all our energy problems down the road. We still have to produce the electricity to power these machines, after all, and thatÂ’s a whole different set of issues. Still, itÂ’s a nice diversion, at least for the time being. And there are more substantial benefits as well. Having a supercharger here gives our town some exposure to folks who might not otherwise have reason to stop. Today itÂ’s just a quick bite.Maybe next time theyÂ’ll want to stay a while. In any case, welcome to all. Charged up over the Tesla craze Q Associated Press On eradicating apparently annoying Southern accent TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1789, the United States Treasury Department was established. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union Gen. William T. ShermanÂ’s forces occupied Atlanta. In 1901, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt offered the advice, Â“Speak softly and carry a big stickÂ” in a speech at the Minnesota State Fair. In 1935, a Labor Day hurricane slammed into the Florida Keys, claiming more than 400 lives. In 1944, during World War II, Navy pilot Lt. George Herbert Walker Bush was shot down by Japanese forces as he completed a bombing run over the Bonin Islands. D ear Jennifer Adams: I read in the paper about your book, Â“Say Goodbye to Your Southern Accent,Â” and IÂ’m much obliged for your advice. But donÂ’t forget that most advice is as useless as a steering wheel on a mule. ItÂ’s too late for me to change, Miss Jennifer. IÂ’m practically retired and what I sound like is not that important anymore, except when I call the cable company and the robot lady canÂ’t understand me. But it might not be too late for my four grandkids, who have Southern accents to varying degrees. Maybe you could work with them. We certainly donÂ’t want their accents to hold them back, as you say drawls are wont to do. If I hadnÂ’t been strapped with my accent, why, I couldÂ’ve been serv-ing up corn beef and cabbage in some deli in New York City. But, as I said, itÂ’s too late for me. I appreciate that you have a masterÂ’s degree in speech pathol-ogy, and I know that comes in handy when youÂ’re helping some-one exterminate a Southern accent. Matter of fact, one of our daughters is a speech pathologist, and sheÂ’s done mighty well in the speech business despite her having a somewhat noticeable down-home sound. Without that accent, I bet she could be working with you. If I may quote from this newspaper story: Â“Taking the South out of a clientÂ’s mouth means shortening vowels, sticking GÂ’s back on the end of verbs and losing colloquial-isms like Â‘What in the Sam Hill?Â’Â” What I want to know is, what in the Sam Hill is wrong with Â“what in the Sam Hill?Â” I normally donÂ’t go around saying that, but itÂ’s a perfectly good expression. If I had time, IÂ’d tell you what in the Sam Hill itÂ’s all about. By the way, IÂ’m right particular about putting GÂ’s on the back end of verbs, except when I donÂ’t feel like doinÂ’ it. You see, Miss Jennifer, a Southerner has a mind of his own, and he wonÂ’t cotton to someone trying to change his speech pattern. If you donÂ’t know what Â“IÂ’m fixinÂ’ toÂ” means, well, thatÂ’s your problem. You need to study up. If youÂ’ll pick a day, youÂ’re welcome to drop by the house for a lesson or two. WeÂ’ll put it down where the goats can get it. IÂ’ll teach you how to under-stand Southern, and you can write another book. You can call it Â“Kiss My Grits.Â” The point is, Miss Jennifer, folks are different in different parts of the country. ThatÂ’s just fine. But if books like yours catch on, weÂ’ll all sound like that guy on the 6 oÂ’clock news who wears a spray-on tan and enunciates words to death. Honestly, maÂ’am, some of us really appreciate our heritage and value our Southern accents. And weÂ’re bound and determined to keep them. By the way, forget about working with my grandkids. I was just pull-ing your leg. Fondly,Phil Hudgins T he excitement is building. Only a few more weeks until the long-awaited mid-term elections, which Republicans hope will mean they take over the Senate and smite President Barack Obama even harder. And, so, we wonder, what is impassioning the voters who will make this momentous decision? Is it the killer terrorists of the so-called Islamic State of Syria and Iraq? Is it the treatment of young black men by police? Is it ObamaÂ’s milk-toast version of Â“bringing it onÂ”? The bor-der crisis with young children being sent on hazardous journeys to the United States without their parents? For millions, especially in tea party strongholds, it is the riveting matter of the fate of the Export-Import Bank of the United States. I do not jest.ItÂ’s sort of hard to figure this out. Have Americans suddenly taken a strong new interest in arcane economics? Or are tea partiers jousting with an issue they donÂ’t really understand, just as they tried to ruin the U.S. reputation as a good investment by preventing the country from paying its legitimate debts. (Not understanding that rais-ing the debt ceiling applies to debts incurred and is not a license to incur new debts.) Most countries have exportimport banks to make loans to foreigners to buy their products. The U.S. bank charter written in the Depression says its purpose is to assist in financing the export of U.S. goods and services to international markets. If Congress does nothing by September 30, the bank will run out of money and close its doors. Hurrah, say some conservative Republicans, who argue the bank is a monster running amok, one form of the kind of corporate welfare and crony capitalism that they oppose. Whoa, say most Democrats who rightly think the bank could be reined in but who say its demise would hurt thousands of American businesses and cost U.S. jobs when the fragile economic recovery is still struggling to sit up in bed. But it is not a straight Republican v. Democrat issue. The conserva-tive Heritage Foundation wants the bank shut down while the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says that would be stupid. The Chamber has a countdown clock on its website and urges busi-ness leaders to write to Congress and Â“support the bank.Â” It notes the bank provided $37.4 billion worth of sales of U.S. products in 2013 and account-ed for 200,000 American jobs. Heritage argues the bank is Â“beset by mismanagement, dysfunction, and riskÂ” inevitably the Â“result of government assuming a function far beyond its proper purview and one that rightly belongs to private business alone.Â” Ah, the vagaries of time. Two years ago the bank was reautho-rized with overwhelming bipartisan support. That was then; this is now. Obama used a radio address to urge support, saying the bankÂ’s demise would mean thousands of big and small businesses would take a Â“completely unnecessary hit.Â” The man who wants to snatch control of the Senate out of Majority Leader Harry ReidÂ’s Democratic hands, Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., opposes reauthorizing the bank. The bank says, we make a profit, and touts success stories of U.S. com-panies it has aided. For example, the president of Thrustmaster of Texas, Inc., says the bank provided where-withal for multimillion-dollar sales that permitted it to compete on a level playing field with the big guys. But the bankÂ’s own overseers admit there are problems that need fixing. There is a chance Congress may do a short-term extension to keep the bank operating until after the election and then work out a better solution. But in the polarized climate on Capitol Hill thatÂ’s a long shot. Election-year politics are so whimsical.Export-Import Bank fight not exactly a battle royal Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 P age Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Oklahoma at Tulsa Michigan State at Oregon MZ61 Zero turn24hp Kawasaki61Â’Â’ Fabricated cutting deck 3 Blades$116 mo.48 mos. equal paymentsNo InterestVirginia Tech at Ohio State East Carolina at South Carolina By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the Reporter FORT WHITE Â— You live in a motel room Â— for now. Next week you might be sleeping on the back seat of a car or on the couch in an auntÂ’s house. Insecurity is con stant; sometimes youÂ’re not even sure if there will be enough food to keep you from going to bed hungry. School? Just mak ing it there is a challenge. Homework might get done if you can scrounge the supplies you need and find a few minutes of peace and quiet. For hundreds of chil dren in Columbia County, those are the hard real ities of life. Sometimes homelessness results from job loss, a house fire, or natural disaster; sometimes itÂ’s the result of a flight from domestic violence or a childÂ’s run ning away from home. Sometimes itÂ’s a matter of living doubled up with a relative for a few months; sometimes itÂ’s a chronic problem. Regardless of the cause or duration, itÂ’s Dana HugginsÂ’ job to see that homelessness doesnÂ’t stand between a child and school. Â“My job description is simple: if thereÂ’s a barrier to a childÂ’s education caused by homelessness, itÂ’s my job to find a way around it,Â” Huggins explained. As the Columbia County School SystemÂ’s homeless education liaison, she and assistant Joyce Spradley are at the center of a net work dedicated to provid ing homeless children and families with the help they need. That network stays busy: during the 2013-14 school year, about 575 children received services through HugginsÂ’ office.Attendance mattersProviding homeless children with access to education starts with getting them to school. Once she becomes aware of a childÂ’s need through school guidance or con tacts with one of the areaÂ’s social service organiza tions, Huggins swings into action to ensure that child has transportation to and from school. Â“Usually itÂ’s a matter of finding out where the nearest bus stop is and ensuring that the child and the parent know when and where to be there,Â” Huggins says. Â“But some times these children move a lot within the county during the course of the school year. When that happens, they have the right under the McKinney-Vento Act to keep attend ing the same school they started in. That means itÂ’s up to me to keep tabs on them and make sure they know how to access school transpor tation wherever they are.Sometimes it means scrounging up transporta tion the best I can if they move outside a schoolÂ’s zone but want to keep going there. I do whatev er it takes. I also monitor absenteeism to make sure they donÂ’t miss too many days.Â”WeekÂ’s worth of food HugginsÂ’ job doesnÂ’t end with making sure a child gets to school reg ularly. Â“Kids canÂ’t learn when theyÂ’re hungry,Â” she says. Â“I make sure that the children I service are signed up for the schoolsÂ’ free meals. That gives them breakfast and lunch every school day. We have local charities that provide backpacks of food that stu dents can take home for evenings and weekends and I try to get children linked to those. In addi tion, IÂ’ll refer families to United Way, Catholic Charities, or the Christian Service Center as needed to get their basic needs met.Â” Huggins makes use of all these organizations and more to supply chil dren with other basic needs such as clothing and school supplies. Â“We are blessed to have many groups in our area that help provide for these chil dren and their families,Â” she says. Â“I canÂ’t meet every need these children have myself, but I can usu ally find someone who can through a church, Altrusa, or some other organiza tion.Â”Educational needsWith transportation and basic needs taken care of, Huggins helps students access special education services, gifted and reme dial programs, bilingual education and tutoring within the schools. She also helps her students get involved in programs that may require extra financial assistance, finding ways to work around participation fees for athletics and help ing students with obtain ing items like instruments for band or a uniform for chorus. Â“No child should have to neglect develop ing a talent or pursuing an interest because of home lessness,Â” she said.Help always availableHomeless children and their families often have difficulty getting medical, dental and mental health care, adding another layer of complexity to HugginsÂ’ job. While federal law man dates that homeless chil dren be allowed to attend school even if state require ments for immunizations and physicals arenÂ’t met, itÂ’s in everybodyÂ’s best interests for these chil dren to receive the needed services as soon as pos sible. Huggins spends a good deal of time helping parents get their children scheduled for immuniza tion clin ics and physicals. She also makes referrals as needed to men tal health profes sionals, preferably those who provide in-school services. While social work involving the families isnÂ’t part of HugginsÂ’ job description, she knows from experience that meeting the familiesÂ’ needs removes other bar riers to childrenÂ’s educa tion. Â“I refer parents to other agencies for help all the time,Â” she says. Â“The new community resource center in Fort White is going to be a huge help because Fort White Elementary School has more students needing homeless services than any other school in the county. Fort White High School is second on the list. YouÂ’d be surprised at how many kids are living in tents and campers out in the woods down there. With the new center, I can tell their families that there will be people right there in Fort White who can help them. It will only be open one day a week, but itÂ’s more than they had before.Â” In addition to her other duties, Huggins educates school staff on homeless ness and works with local advocates for the home less. ItÂ’s a lot of work, but her reward is far more than a paycheck. Â“Every year Joyce and I get thankyou cards and graduation notices from these kids,Â” she says. Â“Every time we get a card or run into a par ent who tells us how well their child is doing, it just thrills us. Knowing that weÂ’ve helped a child get an education and find a way to be successful makes it all worthwhile.Â” Huggins fights homelessness in order to further education AVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the ReporterDana Huggins, Columbia County School District homeless liaiso n coordinator, is seen at her desk at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex. Children canÂ’t learn if they donÂ’t attend school, so Dana Huggins finds a way to get them there.

SUMMERContinued From 1Aseason ending after Monday, she said the park will see about 750 people in the head waters, which is where the spring begins, and will see additional people jump in at the midpoint and the south end of the spring. Smith said she was from Lake Panasoffkee and had been a volunteer with her husband for the past five years. She said they stay in motor home off the property for a couple months leading up to Labor Day Weekend when the park expects a large crowd. Â“ItÂ’s going to be a nice week end,Â” she said. Â“People come to Ichetucknee to take their time to float and enjoy the nature along the way. And as long as people are safe and follow the rules of the park, every one will have a great time.Â” They come from all over the region to tube for three hours down a six-mile-long crystal line river to enjoy the cool tem peratures of the water and the natural beauty that surrounds it. A tri-county camping group from the Pasco, Hillsborough and Tampa Bay area said they had been at the springs since 7 a.m. and were ready to float down the river for the first time since 1991. The group said when others drive to theme parks, wait in hours-long lines and spend a ton of money, they were miss ing out on this hidden gem. They said they came to the springs this weekend to relive their youth and to have a good time with friends. Â“ItÂ’s like a paradise,Â” said Cathy Wetherington, from the Tampa Bay area. She said she was with her husband and two friends who had been to the springs many times. Although people sometimes worry about snakes hanging from the trees and other wild life in the water, Wetherington said the animals had never bothered her. She said she had been to many different parks throughout Florida and nothing compared to the springs of the Ichetucknee. Â“This one is pristine,Â” Wetherington said. Â“Not only are the springs beautiful, but just walking through the trails to get to the springs are gorgeous. ItÂ’s too bad theyÂ’re not open for a longer season to tube.Â”

Blayne Barber earned his tour card by virtue of his finish on the Web.com Tour this season, and will make his PGA Tour debut when the season begins in October. The feeling of being on the big stage is a new one for Barber. Â“ItÂ’s kind of hard to figure out,Â” Barber said. Â“ItÂ’s surreal. ItÂ’s cool to make the dream come true, and I had ambition to realize that dream. To see it all come to fruition, itÂ’s just a feeling of excitement.Â” Barber said this isnÂ’t where the train ends and has set new goals. Â“I have to start thinking how to compete with the best players in the world,Â” he said. Â“I have to learn to compete on a regular basis and obviously IÂ’d love to win. The ultimate goal is to do this for the next 20-25 years. I have to continue to get better and progress each step of the way. IÂ’ve been fortunate to win at every level, so itÂ’s just about adapting to the change at this level.Â” Barber said the dream would be to contend in the biggest tournaments. Â“Obviously the stock answer is to say that IÂ’d love to compete in the Masters,Â” Barber said. Â“ThatÂ’s every-oneÂ’s dream. With the Players Championship being so close to home, thatÂ’d also be cool to land a spot in there next year.Â” Barber said heÂ’s confident in his game and that he believes that when heÂ’s playing well he has what it takes to win.

But does it really matter if Stewart makes the 16-driver field? Not in the least.StewartÂ’s team and his employees and his sponsors would be thrilled if Stewart pulled it off, and it sure felt as if the crowd was pulling for him given his reception during driver introductions. So when his tire blew and he hit the wall, ending his night just past the halfway point, there was heavy sadness in his voice as he radioed his crew. Â“Sorry, guys,Â” he said. Â“You deserve better than this.Â” Only the finish wasnÂ’t that important in the grand scheme of life, which Stewart is beginning to understand in the aftermath of WardÂ’s death. Returning to the track was imperative for Stewart, who had spent nearly three weeks in seclusion. Many of his peers tried and failed to comfort him; Stewart simply wasnÂ’t ready to talk or text or let anyone into his world of constant sorrow. Â“IÂ’ve wanted to talk to him for weeks,Â” Atlanta winner Kasey Kahne said. Â“I think a lot of people have, and havenÂ’t been able to.Â” Kahne finally got his chance Friday after Stewart returned to the track and made his first public statement since WardÂ’s death. Those friendships and support are what Stewart needs most right now. He needs normalcy and routine and the distraction of pulling on his helmet and climbing in a car. The investigation into WardÂ’s death will last at least another two weeks, and criminal charges are still possible. So itÂ’s foolish to think one weekend at the track did anything to make his problems go away. Many will scrutinize the timing of StewartÂ’s return. But many are touched by tragedy daily, and few get to simply shut down and grieve indefinitely. There are jobs, children, responsibilities and lives that go on. When something terrible happens, eventually itÂ’s time to return to work. ThatÂ’s all Stewart did last weekend.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: My son married an educated professional woman from another country. When their twins were born, my daughter-in-law immersed them in her native lan guage so it would become their mother tongue. Although I understand and respect the benefits of being bilingual, this caused a lot of communi cation gaps and frustration between us and the grand kids during their early years. They attend a bilin gual elementary school now, and their English is superb and communication between us is great. The problem is, when we are together, my daughter-in-law speaks to her children exclusively in her native language. My son under stands the conversation, but my husband and I do not know what is being said. We think this is rude and inconsiderate. Are we being overly sensitive, or is this com mon practice in families with multiple languages? Our relationship with our daughter-in-law is polite and cordial, but not close or intimate. Any advice? Â— LEFT OUT IN FLORIDA DEAR LEFT OUT: This is not unusual in multilingual families, and I agree that it is inconsid erate. Have you spoken to your son and daughter-in-law about how this makes you feel? If you havenÂ’t, you should, because she may not be deliberately trying to make you feel excluded. When you raise the sub ject, choose your words and tone carefully. Because if you donÂ’t, your relation ship with your daughter-in-law could become a lot less cordial than it is. DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m a 55-year-old gay male who has been with my now-spouse, Â“Owen,Â” in a lov ing, committed relationship since 2005. While earlier we could not legally marry, in 2006 we had a commit ment ceremony bringing together close friends and family to acknowledge and celebrate our relationship. In 2013, Owen and I were finally able to legally marry in California. My dilemma comes from people who donÂ’t know what to call us. People often refer to my spouse as my Â“friendÂ” or Â“partner.Â” At times I say nothing, but more often than not, I find myself saying, Â“Oh, you mean my HUSBAND.Â” Some of them thank me for the clarification; others just look at me with a blank stare. Owen never corrects them because he feels it isnÂ’t his place. I feel itÂ’s my responsibility to do so, first so as to not play down the significance of our relationship, but also to educate these people. Do you think this is inap propriate? Â— MARRIED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MARRIED: Not at all. The people who refer to you and Owen as Â“partnersÂ” and Â“friendsÂ” are using terminology that is evolving because marriage among same-sex couples is still relatively new. As it becomes more common place, that will change. In the meantime, itÂ’s com pletely appropriate for you and Owen to speak up. P.S. For any reader who may not already know, gay men refer to their spouse as their husband and lesbians refer to theirs as their wife. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Enjoy life and all it has to offer. Indulge in events, activities and doing things that inter est you, and you will gain knowledge and improve your prospects. Travel will lead to a new adventure. Romance is highlighted. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Financial ventures and opportunities will come from an unusual source. Plan carefully or whatever you gain will slip through your fingers.

A strong, sta ble, responsible approach to work and personal duties will put you in a good position that will bring promising results. Your personal secrets will be revealed if you are too trusting. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Strut your stuff and put on a show. Not every one will be entertained by your bravado, but it will grab the attention of someone who likes your style and knows how to put your talents to good use. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Invest in education, travel and your community. DonÂ’t let emotional issues stop you from following through with your plans. Make a couple of changes to your living quarters to accommodate some thing you want to pursue. Emotional deception is apparent. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Speak up and ask questions if you are uncertain. Attend an event or activity designed to improve your communi ty. Personal connections made at functions will turn out to be opportune. Romance is in the stars. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Observe how others react to what you say. What you learn will help you avoid making a mistake. Protect against physical illness or injury. Do something to make your domestic surround ings more conducive to the things you enjoy doing. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Check out what everyone is doing or saying. Stick to the truth and focus on getting ahead professionally, financially and personally. Positive changes at home will raise your standard of living and lead to a better relationship with someone special. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ulterior motives are apparent and taking precautions to keep your intentions a secret will be in your best inter est. Be ready to counter an unexpected change someone makes at the last minute. DonÂ’t let it disrupt your plans. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Say whatÂ’s on your mind and get what you want in writing. A professional change looks inviting. Your negotiating skills will help you win a position that can lead to greater income. Romance will help bring you clos er to someone you love. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Avoid emotional confrontations. Concentrate on contracts, settlements and other legal or financial matters that can influence your standard of living, your reputation or your position. Honesty will be a factor regarding an old friend. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Using mother tongue makes family conversation difficult Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
