Men’s Club offers a lifeline By NOKP Staff Retiring to Kings Point and Sun City Center is not just about living. It’s about living well, and living as independently as possible for as long as possible. For some people, this means getting a little help from time to time. For others, this means a bit more help a bit more often. For one group—you know who you are—help needs to be just a phone call away, even when you cannot reach the phone. At that point, in that moment, you need a lifeline. The SCC Men’s Club has you covered. “The Men’s Club of Sun City Center provides Philips Lifeline Personal Response equipment as a community service to anyone in Greater Sun City Center.” Don Koester, Vice President of the SCC Men’s Club said. “We used to have an installation fee, but now the Men’s Club underwrites the installation. All the individual is responsible for is a monthly subscription fee.” What does a subscriber get for that fee? “Peace of mind, 24-7,” Koester said, “And help when
you need it at the touch of a button.” Maybe you have seen the commercials? Those “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” adverts. With Philips Lifeline, a subscriber wears a small button on his or her necklace, wrist or watchband. When that person needs help, he or she presses that button and is instantly connected to Lifeline
The men gather for their monthly meeting.
About the SCC Men’s Club Established in 1962, the Men’s Club of Sun City Center is one of the oldest and largest service clubs in SCC. The Club, a non-profit fellowship and service organization, has about 500 members. Meetings are held monthly, on the third Wednesday of the month, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Luncheon programs include informative and entertaining speakers representing a diverse range of disciplines. Three times each year, the men invite the ladies in their lives to join them for special programs specifically designed to honor and entertain them. To wrangle an invite, simply tell a current Men’s Club member you are interested in visiting. He will arrange for you to come to a meeting as a guest of the Men’s Club. You may also contact John Armstrong at 813.634.6434 of look for the club online at www.sccmensclub.org. Kings Point residents are welcome. Koester said that, though about half of the Lifeline members are residents of Kings Point, only about one quarter of the Men’s Club members live there. “We would certainly like to increase our Kings Point membership. The more members we have the more good we can do.”
representatives. That call center, based in Massachusetts, handles about 700,000 subscribers across the country. “This is a big, very well trained group.” Koester said. The Lifeline reps taking the call speak to the caller in order to determine on the best course of action. Do they need immediate emergency help? The police? The fire department? A spouse or trusted neighbor or friend to be notified? Whatever the situation, representatives will then contact that individual or first responder and relay the information. Koester explains, “The subscriber makes the decision as to who is the default first responder. My

The Computer Club Celebrates 30 Years The Computer Club began in 1983, when Len Point had a computer problem and could not find ready answers. He made a plea for help and other PC pioneers responded as a “mutual aid society.” Club members took turns offering their homes as sites for the monthly meetings. As the PC became popular, the Club grew. In 1988, it became affiliated with the Sun City Center Community Association. Later, it incorporated and was granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS as a tax-exempt educational organization. The Club offers a wide range of facilities and services for the local PC community. Regular monthly meetings are held to update members on the latest equipment and software advances. The Club publishes a widely acclaimed, prize winning, 16-page monthly newsletter containing Club news, industry news and “how to” information. It also contains the very useful “Help Line” – a listing of members willing and able to assist others with specific software questions and problems.

One of the unique facilities of the Club is its full-time Resource Center in the Atrium Building on the North SCC Campus, where qualified Monitors (the “Yellow Shirts”) assist residents with PCrelated problems and questions. This operates daily, except Sunday with a dozen, state-of the art computers available. Visitors have used this facility to submit their homework, make on-line financial transfers or print out their Boarding Passes. This Center also serves as a backup facility for members and visitors who need access to their e-mail accounts, or to download programs on the Club’s high speed WiFi line.

B17 taxies to a stop at the Zephyrhills airport.
By E. Adam Porter Editor in Chief, NOKP This past Monday I was allowed a privilege only a select few will ever again experience. I was given the opportunity to fly in a B-24 Liberator, courtesy of a living history charity tour called Wings of Freedom. Not only is the generation who originally flew these warbirds passing away, but so, too, are the planes themselves. Of the more than 18,000 B-24s manufactured, only a handful remain intact. There are only two airworthy B-24Js in the world. One is owned by the Collings Foundation, which sponsors Wings of Freedom. The other is owned by Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, FL, and was last flown in 1997. The Collings B-24J flies at least 220 times per year, mostly from tour stop to tour stop. So, maybe I’m not in such limited company after all. But, when you consider who I had the privilege of flying with, it still feels pretty special. Robert Arrington Sr. was a young farm boy when the U.S. Army plucked him out of his small town and prepared him to go off to war. He started out in administration at “headquarters” before being sent over to the Air Corps for training as a ball turret gunner. By the time he finished training, the Air Corps was finished with Goering and his Luftwaffe, so Arrington never had to go off to war, flying in one of the most dangerous jobs in the Air Force. The 92-year-old had not been in a Liberator since completing training, but today, he would be flying once again. Joining him (and me) on this flight, was Arrington’s son, Robert Jr. During the preflight, Arrington talked about how precious the time is that he gets to spend with his son. “He takes me everywhere. All over the place.” Senior said. “I don’t remember half of what we do anymore, but I have a lot of
fun while we’re doing it.” Senior said he remembers his military days well, and he shares as much as he can remember with Junior. His stories are not of bronzestatue super heroes, but of boys and young men, with young men’s senses of humor and perspectives on life. The stories are raw and honest and funny, and I can’t help but wonder how they may have grown in the telling. As all the best stories do. As we were seated on the plane my mind assembled a movie reel of imagined reality. I’d never flown a bomber into battle. Not even in training. All my imaginings come from still shots and war movies. I glanced over at Senior and wondered what he was seeing, his eyes unfocused, his gaze always coming back to the ball turret at our feet. I wondered if he was remembering the first time he lowered himself into those tight confines. Just him, his machine guns and thousands of feet of open air. Junior asks Senior a question and the father turns to the son. “Yes it was loud. When all those 50s opened up, it was loud. I mean LOUD.”
Senior & Junior during the fight.
Junior turned to me. “Most gunners ended up with hearing loss.” Continued on Page 3

“What!” Senior asked, a twinkle in his eye. At that point the engines roared and the plane moved down the runway. Once in the air, with the waist gun hatches open, it was tough to do any more talking. But there was sure plenty to see. On this flight a P-51 Mustang would be flying escort. To look out a window and see that gleaming fighter on our wing sent my imagination into overdrive. Suddenly I was five years old and that plane was just begging to be explored. I tried out each waist gun, then crawled up into the nose to get that view. I squeezed along the narrow walkway, careful not to step on the bomb bay doors. In pre-flight, a flight crewman warned us that those were rigged to fall away and would not hold our weight. Good to know. At one point we flew over Fantasy of Flight, home of the other airworthy B-24J. There on the tarmac, two WW2-era planes waited, a fighter and a bomber. Talk about completing the picture. We landed in Zephyrhills, FL, where the B-24 and P-51 were scheduled to appear with a B-17 in a living history exhibit. Veterans and warplane history buffs of all ages were already waiting when the Liberator taxied to a stop. Chatter along the fence line ceased as the Arringtons crossed in front of them, Senior

In that moment, the attention of men and boys who had come to marvel at machines of war, was held, instead, by a man, an aging warrior who said he would have liked to have flown into battle at least once, but was, at the same time, relieved he never got the chance.

Later, in the pilot’s lounge, I asked Robert Arrington his thoughts about his final B-24 mission. “This was fun.” He said. “Like I remember…but different too.” Senior admitted he wasn’t really sure what he meant by that, and I didn’t press. I figure those memories are his to keep or give away. I’ll just have to use my imagination.

The LEO Letter
A monthly update from the Hillsborough County Sheriff ’s Office
With Deputy Chris Girard Did you know? Hello to all Kings Point and Sun City Center residents! It’s good to be back as your HCSO resource deputy, even if it is just temporary. This month I wanted to update the residents of our community about several issues that will be of interest to you. Did you know that, in the past year we’ve had several burglaries involving rear sliding glass doors? Many of these are crimes of opportunity. Unlocked doors leaving homes vulnerable to bad guys. Do you know what you should do to reduce the likelihood of becoming a target? Did you know that, at this time each year, the scams really start picking up? Phone, mail and walkup scams often increase during this time of year. Do you know what you need to know
to avoid becoming a victim? Did you know that, of all things, the theft of lawn decorations and lawn ornaments is increasing in our area? People are coming home to simply find their lawn ornaments gone. Do you know what you can do to keep this from happening to you? If you did not know these things or are unaware of how you may be able to take action, then please come to our next monthly community meeting. Attendance at these meetings has decreased over
the last several months and, consequently, we have seen an increase in certain types of crimes, like those listed above. These informative meetings allow residents to get the latest news, crime trends and the knowledge they need to take the proper precautions and avoid becoming a victim. For Kings Point residents: The meetings are hosted the second Tuesday of every month at 1:00 PM in the fiber arts room of the main clubhouse. For Sun City Center residents: The meetings are hosted the second Thursday of every month at 9:00 AM at the security squad.
A third meeting, open to any residents of KP or SCC is held the third Wednesday of every month at the Sun Trust bank at 1525 Rickenbacker Dr. Please take advantage of these important informational meetings. An informed populace is better aware and able to protect itself from many different types of crime.

Movie at UMC
February 8, 2013 another great movie will be shown at The United Methodist Church located at 1210 Del Webb Blvd. W., Sun City Center. The Friday Night at the Movies is always shown the second Friday of each month at 6:30. The doors open at 6:00 for a half hour of chitchat and refreshments. The name of the movie for February 8, 2013 will be “LAST OUNCE OF COURAGE”. “LAST OUNCE OF COURAGE” is about a town whose families are having their Faith, Freedom and their Cherished Rights taken away from them, little by little. Powerful Washington interests seek to stamp out their entire God-given-rights and what they were founded on. Bob Revere, mayor of the town; having lost his son while serving overseas is reminded by his grandson, who is now a young man serving his country as a soldier, to take a stand for the ideals and traditional values that our heroes in uniform sacrifice everything to protect. Having lost his job, for speaking up against the system and in honor of his son, Revere embarks on a personal mission to reignite the last ounce of patriotism and faith of his fellow citizens and reassert the cherished rights guaranteed to all Americans. If you never watch another movie, this is one to watch.

Meteorologist John Frizzola presented his talk “Italian Meteorologists and the Age of Science” to a packed meeting room of AMICI members and guests. The Age of Science reached its peak in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Italian scientists of that era laid the physical and mathematical foundations of the sciences used today to observe and predict the weather. They belonged to the famous Academia Cimento of Florence. Using overhead transparencies and actual instruments, Mr. Frizzola took the audience from early science to today’s applications. After the presentation he gave attendees time to make comments and ask questions. This was Mr. Frizzola’s third program for AMICI. The club hopes to have him back next season for a continuation of his interesting and informative programs on weather and science. For information on AMICI and upcoming programs call 634-0955.

Sweet Tart Kickoff to Festival Season Late winter is festival time in central Florida, from Dade City to Sarasota. Story Eddie Dixon, Photos by Adam Porter The Dade City Kumquat Festival, held the final weekend in January, is the unofficial kickoff for festival season in Central Florida. The smallish, one-day downtown Dade City celebration of the tiny citrus fruit known as the kumquat is the pride of Dade City and a sort of dress rehearsal for the larger fairs and festivals held in February and March. Sponsored by the Dade City Chamber of Commerce the Kumquat Festival offers booths, vendors, live entertainment and just about any sort of kumquat concoction you can think of. Booth offerings at the 2013 festival included a farmer’s market, fine art, woodworking, crafts, home décor, sports memorabilia and politically-charged t-shirts. This is the 16th year the Dade City Chamber of Commerce has presented this festival and, I have to tell you, they do a darn good job of organizing the event. Roughly 40,000 festivalgoers pack a four-block radius, but the crowd is orderly and you really don’t get any of the logjams or rude behavior you might expect. Over and over again, folks from out of town remarked about how much fun they were having and how friendly everyone was. The folks at the Chamber will tell you that’s just part of Dade City’s charm, and, as someone who gets up that way a fair bit, I’d have to agree. It really is “nice” here. Even those aforementioned politicallycharged t-shirts only elicited polite disagreement, rather than screaming, fist shaking and finger pointing. Fans stood next to the booth chatting companionably why folks of a different opinion than the vendor simply shook their heads and mumbled under their breath as they passed by. So, it’s safe to say that this Dade City shindig is passing sweet. It’s also a little bit on the tart side. At least those kumquats can be. The little fruit, roughly the size of
a walnut, comes in two varieties – sweet and tart. But it’s sort of like wines. Sweet ain’t exactly sweet, and tart will hit you like a dry wine if you don’t see it coming. It can be an acquired taste. But, up here, they love them both. Folks in Dade City put kumquats in pies, jams, jellies, salsas and wines. Of course, you can also just pick one up and pop it in your mouth, peel and all. The peels are similar in texture to oranges, but much thinner, so you can eat the whole thing, minus the occasional seed. One piece of advice, when sampling, try the tart variety first. Just trust me on this. So, this time next January, if you like browsing eclectic arts and crafts and enjoy fair food hot from the fryer, take a trip up to Dade City for the kumquat festival.

A Valentine From The South Shore Symphony Orchestra
The South Shore Symphony Orchestra goes all romantic in two Valentine performances Saturday, February 9 in Sun City Center. The concert of romantic classics by Bach, von Weber, Elgar, Dvorak and Mendelssohn, will be presented at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, 1015 Del Webb Blvd., E., in Sun City Center. Tickets at $12 are available at the church office, at the Sun City Center and South Shore Chambers of Commerce and online at www.thessso.org The Program • The Overture to Carl Maria von Weber’s Oberon, an opera fantasy about an Elf and Fairy, a Knight and a princess, has been described as “dazzling, gorgeous, and shining in fantastic splendor,” among other superlatives. • Air from Suite in D, BWV 1068 by Johann Sebastian Bach, one of the most famous pieces of baroque music, has come to be known as Air on the G String. • Cello Concerto in Bm, Op. 104, mvt 2 by Antonin Dvorak, who had long resisted writing this work because he didn’t think the cello was solo-suitable. Audience applause and praise by Johannes Brahms, his mentor, changed his mind.
Ask Pete your questions about
prostate cancer My friend had prostate cancer surgery 7 years ago. Now they say it has come back. Why? A—Unfortunately this does happen. It is extremely difficult for even the best surgeon to remove ALL the prostate tissue during surgery (even with the new robots). It is possible for prostate cancer cells to be left behind, and to later develop into cancer. This is why it is important to maintain annual check-ups following any type of prostate cancer treatment. If there are some active cells left, you want to find them early. It is possible to have a second treatment to address this “recurrence.” Most likely this man will now have some kind of radiation treatment to knock out the remaining cancer cells, or he may elect to take some hormones to halt the growth. Hormones, however, are a temporary solutions, and not a “cure.”

• After Felix Mendelssohn read William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he set to work on a romantic beauty he would title: The Overture in E major, Op. 21. At completion, he had not yet reached his 18th birthday. • Enigma Variations: (Theme, and movements 8, 9, and 13) was the work that made English composer Edward Elgar internationally famous. “The enigma, I will not explain,” he said, and to this day neither has anyone else.

Now Here’s a Tip
By JoAnn Derson •Sunburn happens in the winter, too, especially on the slopes. Use a cotton ball soaked in cold tea to ease tight, dry skin. Be sure to apply sunscreen to your face and wear eye protection when going out in the snow. •For delicious baked potatoes, boil a pot of salted water, add whole potatoes with skin, remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Finish in oven for a sturdier skin. Start checking for doneness after 15 minutes in the oven. Baking time can be cut in half! -- J.L. in Florida •Remove that musty smell from stored clothes by adding either vinegar or ammonia to the wash water. Be sure to check for smell removal BEFORE drying, as the dryer can bake the smell into clothes, making it more difficult to remove.

2013, February The News of Kings Point
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
Forget New Mattress, See Doctor Instead DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have back discomfort upon lying down. It doesn’t matter where I lie or what position I’m in for my back to hurt and often one or both hips. Getting out of bed in the morning is hard and uncomfortable. Once I have had my morning shower and am up and around, I’m fine. We have thought of replacing our mattress, but how do we find something that will help? What would you recommend? -- M.W. ANSWER: I strongly recommend that you see your family doctor before you invest any money in a mattress. Some of what you describe fits the picture of osteoarthritis -- stiffness upon wakening, difficulty getting out of bed and relief of symptoms after taking a hot shower. Before you spend a penny on a mattress, have your back examined and the problem diagnosed. The booklet on the different kinds of arthritis explains each and how it is treated. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 301W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I looked in the mirror this morning and couldn’t believe what I saw. My right eye was bright red. It looked like someone had punched me. When my husband saw it, he asked if he had hit me while he was asleep. He didn’t. It doesn’t hurt. My vision is perfect. My eye looks frightful. Do I need to see a doctor? -- Y.T. ANSWER: Your question is asked repeatedly. My long-distance guess is a subconjunctival hemorrhage. The conjunctiva is a cellophane-like covering of the eye. Beneath it is a network of invisible blood vessels. When one of those delicate vessels breaks, blood covers that part of the eye. Coughing, sneezing or straining causes the breakage. Sometimes it happens for no apparent reason. The eye looks awful, but no real harm is done. The blood is absorbed in about a week. You can hurry it up by putting warm compresses over the closed eye. You need to see a doctor if the eye begins to pain you, if the blood stays for longer than a week or if it happens time and again. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: How good are prunes for constipation? I am often constipated and have unsuccessfully tried many remedies. They might work for
a short while, but then I am constipated again. I’d like to try the prune way, if you say that it works. -- M.A. ANSWER: It works for many, but I can’t give you a guarantee. Five to six prunes twice a day can change your bowel habits in a week or so. Prunes have fiber, one reason why they exert a laxative effect. Fiber keeps food waste moist on its passage out of the body. Prunes also contain sorbitol, a natural laxative. In addition to the laxative action, prunes have antioxidants, substances that counter the bad effects coming from cell chemistry. Prunes have undergone a name change; they are now called dried plums.

Senior News Line by Matilda Charles
Collecting By Larry Cox
Not only has the flu arrived early this season, but it appears to moving quickly. Seniors are at risk of becoming extremely ill from the flu, so it’s up to us to do everything we can to avoid catching it. We say this to little kids all the time: “Keep your hands away from your face.” But it’s true. Granted, the flu is respiratory and is generally spread through someone sneezing or coughing near us, but flu germs can live on surfaces. If transferred to our hands and then our face, we can catch the flu. An important point: People who have the flu can give it to you a whole day before they even know they’re getting sick. Some hints to avoid the flu: •Carry hand wipes when you shop. If the store doesn’t have any near the carts, use yours to wipe down the handle and seat before you touch it. •Use alcohol-based wipes on your phone and doorknobs at home, just in case. •Stock up on hand sanitizer and keep a small bottle with you when you go out. •Stay out of stores after school hours when small children might be with their parents. If you haven’t had a flu shot for some reason, call your doctor and ask if you should have one. Age alone, if you’re over 65, can put you in a high-risk category, and so can any medical condition you might have. If you do get the flu, ask your doctor about a prescription for an antiviral drug. The drugs work best if started within two days of getting sick. They can make the symptoms a little easier to handle, and they can prevent complications like pneumonia.

Q: I have quite a few books of Blue Chip trading stamps and wonder if they have any value. I am from California and originally got them at gas stations. -- Paul, Apopka, Fla. A: I remember my grandmother carefully pasting trading stamps into books after each visit to the grocery store. There were at least a dozen companies that promoted them. Blue Chip began in about 1956 when Chevron Oil, Thrifty Drugs and several grocery stores in California began to offer them as premiums. After the books were filled, they could be redeemed for items such as toasters, waffle irons and coffee pots. Blue Chips Stamps is now a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway. At a recent paper show in Phoenix, I saw books of Blue Chip stamps priced at about $10 each. William J.

His contact addresses are 6413 Snow Apple Drive, Clarkston, MI 28346; firstname.lastname@example.org; and www.biblecollectors. org. Q: I bought a mug years ago in a shop in Portland, Maine. It is a commemorative mug celebrating the centennial of the United States in 1876. How much do you think it is worth? -- Erma, Apache Junction, Ariz. A: I examined the photo you sent, and after doing a little research, I have determined that it was manufactured for J.M. Shaw and Company of New York by W.T. Copeland & Sons of Britain. This design was part of a 40-piece set that included a teapot, creamer and sugar, plates, cups and saucers. A complete set recently sold at auction for $1,500. Your mug might be worth about $50.

Interfaith Council Honors Scholarship Recipients at Holiday Luncheon University of Central Florida, University of Tampa, Hillsborough Community College, and other colleges, all are graduates of Lennard High School or East Bay High School. They shared their stories on how the scholarships have made a difference in their lives. All were grateful for the generosity of the community for supporting the Nearly New Shop that generates the funding for the scholarships through the sale of
donated items. The Interfaith Council has awarded 68 new and continuing scholarships this past year, for a total of $136,000. These scholarships are given to graduating seniors and to successful college students on a continuing basis. In addition, many charities and organizations received grants from the council this past year from proceeds generated by the Nearly New Shop.
29 of the 68 Scholarship recipients attended the luncheon sponsored by the Interfaith Council of Sun City Center. Jacob Netzley, above, a continuing scholarship recipient pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering at the Florida Institute of Technology speaking at the luncheon.

Contract Bridge Super Crossword
By Steve Becker AN AUCTION BRIDGE TALE
IT’S A SMALL WORLD
The late Sidney Lenz used to tell the story of the time, many years ago, when he played against a man he called Mr. Grumpy, who fancied himself a very good bridge player. It was back in the days of auction bridge, and because the bidding at that time was altogether different in purpose from what it is today, it is not given. Suffice it to say that the final contract was four spades played by Lenz (South) and doubled by Mr. Grumpy (East). A diamond was led, East

cashing two diamond tricks and shifting to the queen of clubs. Lenz won with the ace and cashed the A-K of spades, Mr. Grumpy following with the nine and jack. Having failed to find the trumps divided 2-2, Lenz was now in trouble. He had no entry to dummy to utilize the J-10 of clubs, and as East was marked by his double with the king of hearts, two heart losers seemed inevitable. So Lenz led the king of clubs, hoping Mr. Grumpy would make a mistake, and that worthy gentleman obliged by ruffing with his seven of spades, establishing dummy’s six as an entry to the clubs. As he ruffed, Mr. Grumpy remarked that his clever falsecard of the 9-J of spades had apparently caused Lenz to miscount the trumps. He further twitted Lenz for having failed to make an overtrick in the doubled contract. However, when Lenz pointed out that the contract surely would have failed if East had not ruffed the king of clubs, a sadly chastened and deflated Mr. Grumpy was compelled to retire meekly from the field of battle. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Strange But True By Samantha Weaver
• It was Martin Luther King Jr. who made the following sage observation: “Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.” • Are you a dromomaniac? If you travel compulsively, you are. • The famed statue Venus de Milo was lost to history for nearly 2,000 years. No one knew of its existence until 1820, when a Greek peasant tilling a field on the island of Milos hit stone -- several carved blocks of stone, to be specific. Within a few weeks, archaeologists arrived and took the statue of Aphrodite to France. King Louis XVIII dubbed it the Venus de Milo and donated it to the Louvre, where it remains today. • You might be surprised to learn that Humphrey Bogart wasn’t the producers’ first choice for the role of Rick in “Casablanca.” An actor named George Raft was originally offered the part, but he turned it down because he didn’t like the script. • In 2010, a new species of slug was discovered in the mountains of Borneo. It is distinguished from other species of slug by its novel method of mating: It shoots its mate with a so-called love dart made of calcium carbonate and containing hormones. The researchers nicknamed the gastropods “ninja slugs.” • If you’re traveling to Kansas anytime soon, be sure to remember that it is against the law in that state to catch fish with your bare hands. • During the original run of the classic 1960s TV series “Gilligan’s Island,” some viewers took the show rather too seriously. Several telegrams were sent to the U.S. Coast Guard asking why the poor people hadn’t yet been rescued. Thought for the Day: “I want a man who is kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?” -- Zsa Zsa Gabor © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’re eager to take on that new opportunity opening up as January gives way to February. Now all you need to do is resist quitting too early. Do your best to stay with it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Doff a bit of that careful, conservative outlook and let your brave Bovine self take a chance on meeting that new challenge. You could be surprised at how well you do. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might not want to return to the more serious tasks facing you. But you know it’s what you must do. Cheer up. Something more pleasant soon will occupy your time. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) As you dutifully tidy up your endof-the-month tasks, your fun self emerges to urge you to do something special: A trip (or a cruise, maybe?) could be just what you need. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your achievements are admirable as you close out the month with a roar. Now you can treat yourself to some well-earned time off for fun with family or friends. (Or both!) VIRGO (August 23 to Sept. 22) Be sure you know the facts before you assume someone is holding back on your project. Try to open your mind before you give someone a piece of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might feel comfortable in your familiar surroundings, but it might be time to venture into something new. There’s a challenge out there that’s just right for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your love of things that are new gets a big boost as you encounter a situation that opens up new and exciting vistas. How far you go with it depends on you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That recent workplace shift might not seem to be paying off as you expected. But be patient. There are changes coming that could make a big difference. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While few can match the Goat’s fiscal wizardry, you still need to be wary in your dealings. There might be a problem you should know about sooner rather than later. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.18) Easy does it when it comes to love and all the other good things in life. Don’t try to force them to develop on your schedule. Best to let it happen naturally. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A surprise decision by someone you trust causes some stormy moments. But a frank discussion explains everything, and helps save a cherished relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: Sometimes you forget to take care of yourself, because you’re so busy caring for others. But you wouldn’t have it any other way. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
