Cunningham sizzles in Dons’ ‘Big Game’ win NEWS

BY DAN NELSON

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Santa Barbara High School defeated cross-town rival San Marcos High School 35-21, in the 52nd annual Big Game Friday night. Cheroke Cunningham put on a show that would have made the late Gary Blades proud. Cunningham was honored as the Gary Blades Memorial award-winner. The award is given to the most outstanding player in the Big Game every year. “It feels good,” Cunningham said. “We started off kind of slow, but we picked it up and got the win. It feels really good right now, but we have to keep this up.” Cunningham played a tale of two halves. He was limited to 19 yards rushing with one of the Dons’ two touchdowns. He finished with 25 carries for 163 yards and four touchdowns. “‘Roke is just a special kid,” head coach Jaime Melgoza said. “He just works hard. He’s real quiet. He’s a kid that does his job and he talks to his line.”

“I saw the hole and I just hit it,” Cheroke Cunningham said.

One of Cunningham’s four scores came on a career-high 61yard gallop with 7:09 left in the third quarter. “I saw the hole and I just hit it,” Cunningham said. His four touchdowns give him 16 on the year so far this season. “I didn’t expect to come in [and perform],” Cunningham said. “I’m a sophomore. I didn’t expect I would do that good, but I’ve worked hard, I’ve gotten better and my line did a lot of the work too. I got to give props to them.” Royals’ running back Marquis Glover overshadowed Cunningham in the first half. Glover had 108 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the first half and made a legitimate bid for the Gary Blades MVP trophy. Glover finished the game with 126 yards total. Santa Barbara came out of the gates firing with two first quarter scores. One by Cunningham and a 55-yard interception return by Matthew Gonzales. San Marcos responded quickly in the second quarter with two touchdowns to send the Big Game into halftime in a 14-14 tie.

“You know what, we came out with too much emotion in the first half,” Melgoza said. “They’re a good football team. [Andrew Thayer] is a phenomenal runner, [Marquis Glover] ran the ball good. All around, they did a good job in the first half. “Second half, we just ended up sticking to our game and ‘Roke came alive and he did a great job,” Melgoza added. San Marcos’ Andrew Thayer added another special teams touchdown to his collection with 10:56 left to go in the game. Thayer ran it back 98 yards to make the score 21-35 and give the Royals some life. The one-two punch of Cunningham and quarterback Shawn Ramos proved to be too much for San Marcos. Ramos threw for 145 yards total, which set the table for Cunningham. “We got a long ways to go,” Melgoza said. “It’s one win. We’re 1-0 in league. We’ve got a big contest next week against Ventura. We were rusty tonight and we have a lot of work.” The Dons (4-3) will try to make it four wins in a row against undefeated Ventura High School. The game will be at 7 p.m. on Friday in Ventura. San Marcos will rest during their bye week and take on Ventura the week after. That game will be at 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 on Sut Puailoa Field.


Matteo: audit the budget NEWS

Candidate promotes getting the community involved to solve problems BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Santa Barbara City Council candidate Jerry Matteo wants to remind people who’s at the top of the city government’s organization chart. “We, the people!” Matteo said. Matteo believes Santa Barbara’s biggest problem is community apathy. People complain one way or another about government, but don’t realize how much they can do by getting involved. He believes people can solve homeless, public safety, and environmental problems themselves. It just takes motivation. “What we do in the community and what we don’t do in the community affects everybody in the community,” Matteo said. The current council, he said, isn’t doing much to inspire the public. Matteo said the council has become too partisan and that has put Santa Barbarans on edge. He describes current council political struggles as a “tug-o-war,” with Santa Barbara being the rope. “When you do that, you have the city under tension the whole time,” Matteo said. “Because everyone’s thinking, ‘oh my God, what’s going to happen when we lose one person on either end.’” Matteo describes himself as a “Constitutionalist” and small government advocate, but not for the sake of government being small, but to let private organizations, non-profits, and individuals the opportunity to implement their own solutions. When it gets down to the nitty-gritty on policy, Matteo said his top priority is an independent audit of the city’s budget. Matteo said the city has a lot of money but much of it is being misallocated. As an example, he shows a list of city employees that make over $100,000. Matteo respects the work that city employees do, but said their salaries should be capped at $100,000. He said with 99 employees making above $100,000 an across the board salary cut like that would save the city $2.5 million. “[$100,000] isn’t slouch pay, it’s a decent wage to make no matter how high a position you have,” Matteo said. “Anything above that is glut.” His involvement philosophy encompasses many of the hot button city issues. He points to a recent forum where he challenged the audience to spend a week on the streets alone as a way for people to find solutions to homeless issues in the city. “It’s not a hard thing, just put yourself in that position,” Matteo said. Matteo believes youth programs need to give troubled kids a

sense of family and community. His own suggestions involve an “adopt-a-senior” program that would help bridge social gaps between the young and the elderly. He believes that would give at-risk youth a link to the future. “That’s a connection that we’re really missing,” Matteo said. He also believes the city needs programs that get whole families involved. He said it’s hard to make changes in youths from troubled homes if they have to go back to the same problems every night. “You have to make the support generational,” Matteo said. When it comes to gangs, he supports the injunctions though says they’re a far cry from the best solution. They’d need to be vetted for constitutionality, and they should only apply to the worst offenders. “This may not be the best way to go about it,” Matteo said. “But it was a measure that was felt had to be taken.” A professed fan of Mahatma Gandhi quotes, Matteo spent three-and-a-half months in India where he picked up his philosophy regarding empowering communities. “I learned there what happens when you don’t have conscious community development,” Matteo said. A Connecticut native who decided to move out to California after visiting family on the West Coast, Matteo has called Santa Barbara home for 20 years. He’s works a variety of jobs including a masseur, handyman, and an elderly companion. But he may be best known to the public for putting on the “Free Hugs Campaign” every Sunday at the State Street entrance to Paseo Nuevo. Working at it since 2006, Matteo said the experience has been rewarding. He said people from all walks of life have come to him for hugs. He recalls one woman who approached him after hearing her daughter had gotten hugs from him for three weeks. She told him the hugs had been the best thing that’d ever happened to her. After Matteo gave her a hug to see what Free Hugs was about, she dropped the bombshell: Her daughter had cancer. “Something as simple as giving someone a hug can do wonders,” Matteo said. Though his website still lists how to donate, Matteo has decided not to raise money for his campaign. He told one woman who offered his campaign money that he’d rather have her vote. He also recognizes that his chances of winning a seat are slim, but says spreading his message is more important. “Regardless of who wins these three seats, enough information is being put out where people know that something can be done,” Matteo said.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Arizona border lawsuit dismissed

(Reuters) - A federal judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit by the state of Arizona against the U.S. government that said the Obama administration had failed in its duty to enforce immigration laws or secure the border. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's ruling marked a victory for the Obama administration in its legal and political battle against Arizona and Governor Jan Brewer over illegal immigration. Brewer, a Republican, filed the suit in February as a counterclaim after the Obama administration sued Arizona to overturn the state's controversial law, SB-1070, cracking down on illegal immigrants. Arizona said in its suit that the U.S. Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security had failed to gain "operational control" of the border with Mexico and had abdicated responsibilities to enforce federal immigration laws. "Today's U.S. District Court decision to dismiss Arizona's suit against the federal government is frustrating but not entirely surprising," Brewer said in a written statement following the ruling.

New help for homeowners

(Reuters) - Homeowners who owe more than their houses are worth will get new help to refinance in a government plan to be unveiled as early as Monday to support the battered housing sector, sources familiar with the effort said. The Obama administration has been working with the regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to find ways to make it easier for borrowers to switch to cheaper loans even if they have little to no equity in their homes. The regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, intends to loosen the terms of the two-year-old Home Affordable Refinance Program, which helps borrowers who have been making mortgage payments on time but who have not been able to refinance as their home values have dropped. Officials have been frustrated that attempts to bolster housing - the epicenter of the deepest U.S. recession since the Great Depression -- have borne little fruit. Some top Federal Reserve officials want the central bank to consider buying more mortgagebacked securities as a way to help. While housing prices have stabilized recently, they remain almost a third below the peak reached in 2006.

Love letters to Carol Burnett

Dear Carol, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so glad we had this time together ... Last Friday at the Lobero Theatre was just what the doctor ordered: An Evening of Laughter and Love, with a healthy dose of friends. The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit event brought out Montecitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest and finest, as they came to pay tribute to the woman Master of Ceremonies Dennis Miller decreed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Queen of Comedy, the honcho of the greatest variety show in the history of the media television: Carol Burnett.â&#x20AC;? And while cancer is clearly no laughing matter, as a way to cope with the disease, for some it may really be the best medicine. In this case, it served to raise spirits, awareness and funds for TBCF, ANN the local organization founded by Nikki PEYRAT Katz to provide support to tri-county families with children facing the devastating diagnosis of cancer, through financial assistance, therapy groups, care packages, fun outings, celebrity visits, transportation needs and more. The night kicked off with a cocktail reception and, behind the scenes, press heard Burnett say of her start, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to college ... and I had to take an acting class and all of a sudden I got on stage and they laughed and I liked it.â&#x20AC;? Best known for The Carol Burnett Show (CBS, 1967-1978, named one of the greatest television shows of all time by TV Guide and Time magazine), the award-winning actress, bestselling author and beloved Montecito residentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedic career was highlighted throughout the evening with clips from her show. Audience members clapped at Burnettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unforgettable Tarzan call, roared in laughter at her Gone with the Wind parody where she â&#x20AC;&#x153;saw [her dress] in the window and just had to have it,â&#x20AC;? complete with curtain rod across the shoulders and all, and reminisced at seeing her ear tug, done at the end of each episode as a sign to her grandmother (who raised her) that she was thinking of her. Although, later, through video congratulations from fellow comedians Steve Martin and Garry Shandling, we learned the true meaning of that ear tugâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, as true as can be believed of Martin, who not-so-subtly, tongue in cheek suggested it was her sign to him to meet up for a little private rendezvous, if you know what he means (wink-wink, nudge-nudge, tongue in ear). After an opening address by event co-chairs Margo Barbakow and Fiona Stone, relative newcomer funny-man Garet Webb entertained the crowd, followed by comic Melissa Peterman, who played Barbra Jean on the tv sitcom Reba. As she has been for many an aspiring comedienne, Burnett has been an inspiration and role model for Peterman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be hard for me to breathe a little bit,â&#x20AC;? confessed Peterman, not even pretending to control the excitement in her voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a thrill to be part of the night that is paying trib-

Obtaining Medical Care You Deserve ASK SETH & BRAD

Dear S&B: My insurance is rejecting the procedures I need. What are my options and how can I get them to pay what they should? – Ken, Santa Barbara

In the greatest time of need when emotions are high and uncertainty exists, you hope your insurance company will come through. And in a preponderance of circumstances, the doctors, care coordinators and insurance companies work diligently to get people better and take care of business. But sometimes it does not work out and here are suggestions on how to get your needs met. If you are experiencing a “small” issue, normally your agent and your doctors’ office can straighten it out. But if the situation is “large,” also known as very expensive treatment, you may experience a denial response. Fear can lead to anger or for some, they just give up. The key to obtaining the care you deserve is “to never give up,” says attorney Mark Hiepler of Hiepler & Hiepler in Oxnard, an expert in insurance complaints and recognized as one of the Top Ten Trial Lawyers in the nation. Mr. Hiepler recommends you start with the following 5 point plan and then escalate pressure if the intended results are not reached. 1. Never give up and understand the “squeaky wheel gets the grease.” 2. Write a four paragraph letter that starts with who you are, your family circumstances, the issue at hand and the solution you are looking for. This humanizes the message. 3. Make sure your doctor is involved in the case to push it along. 4. Overnight and fax your appeal to the CEO, CFO or Medical Director of the insur-

NEWS

ance company (go to the “top” people). 5. Follow up the letter with phone calls. Mr. Hiepler stresses that you want to press for “accountability” and that you are looking for a resolution vs. a fight. If this process does not gain satisfaction, the CA Department of Managed Care can be a good resource. “They have a 48 hour life threatening review process that can be beneficial in helping with patient rights,” says Hiepler. The last resort is legal action but it may be necessary in order to force the desired result. Hiepler says, “denial of treatment is usually accompanied by the claim that a procedure is medically unnecessary, experimental or they will not pay for the top doctors, all meaning that it is too expensive from their perspective.” Though you are going up against a large company, “the fear of bad publicity through school fund raisers for example or national news can be extremely effective. The last thing an insurance company wants is bad press,” Mark Hiepler goes on to say. Mark would know from experience, he won an $89 million dollar judgment against an insurance company for bad faith practices in withholding medical care. A judgment that helped open treatment to others. These can be trying and emotional times. Let your voice be heard and get others involved if you can’t obtain the results you are looking for. Just don’t give up.

Wal-Mart trims some U.S. health coverage (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc will no longer offer health insurance to new part-time U.S. employees who work fewer than 24 hours a week and will charge workers who use tobacco more for coverage as healthcare costs rise, the company said on Friday. Wal-Mart, the largest U.S. retailer and the nation's largest private employer, is also slashing the amount that it puts in employees' healthcare expense accounts by 50 percent. The changes, which affect U.S. associates who work for Walmart and Sam's Club, are being explained during the current fall enrollment period before they take effect in January. Preventive care such as annual checkups

remains fully covered. Wal-Mart will now provide $250 for associates to use for healthcare expenses that are not covered, down from $500, and will provide $500 for families, down from $1,000. Those who use tobacco products will also pay more, with rates varying by the type of plan someone chooses "The current healthcare system is unsustainable for everyone and like other businesses we've had to make choices we wish we didn't have to make," said Wal-Mart spokesman Greg Rossiter. "Our country needs to find a way to reduce the cost of healthcare, particularly in this economy."

U.S. to pull out of Iraq after nearly 9 years of war (Reuters) - President Barack Obama vowed on Friday to pull all U.S. troops from Iraq this year, symbolically ending the war but dashing U.S. hopes of leaving a few thousand troops to buttress a still shaky Iraq and offset neighboring Iran's influence. After months of negotiations with officials in Baghdad failed to reach an agreement to keep possibly thousands of U.S. troops in Iraq as trainers, Obama announced he would stick to plans to pull out the remaining force of 40,000 by year's end. "After nearly nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over," Obama told reporters. The announcement was a milestone more than 8 1/2 years after the Bush administration led the invasion to topple Saddam Hussein based on warnings of weapons of mass destruction that turned out not to exist. Obama made his announcement after a video conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. He said the two leaders agreed to stick to an earlier arrangement to pull the remaining U.S. troops by year's end. The prospect of extending the troop presence was very sensitive for Iraq's fractured political elite. Maliki, heading a tenuous coalition including politicians vehemently opposed to foreign troops, eventually advocated a training presence but rejected any legal immunity for U.S. soldiers. Those terms were deemed unacceptable in Washington. Obama, eyeing a 2012 re-election campaign likely to be fought over his handling of the U.S. economy, is looking to wind down a decade of war in the Muslim world that did lasting damage to the U.S. image worldwide and stretched its military and budget to the brink. In Iraq, where the U.S. force peaked at about 190,000 during the height of President George W. Bush's troop surge in 2007, almost 4,500 U.S. soldiers have died and the war has cost U.S.

taxpayers over $700 billion in military spending alone. Even as leaders of Iraq's fragile democracy seek to distance themselves from Washington, Iraq is only slowly getting to its feet after years of ferocious violence that shattered its society and killed tens of thousands of people. While Washington has hailed Iraq's halting progress, especially as tumult has swept the Middle East, its political system remains gripped by perennial deadlock on issues dividing a religiously and ethnically fractured country. Violence there is a far cry from the sectarian slaughter of 2006-07, but Iraq still suffers daily attacks from a stubborn insurgency allied with al Qaeda, and from Shi'ite militiamen.

SHARED VISION FOR IRAQ?

Obama's announcement in the White House briefing room was freighted with political overtones. The president, who was an early opponent of the war and campaigned on a promise to end it, repeated his mantra that "the tide of war is receding." But prominent Republicans criticized the president. Senator John McCain told Reuters the decision went against the advice of U.S. military commanders, could embolden Iran and likely would be met with alarm by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who is already concerned about U.S. commitment to his country. "In retrospect, I don't think the political side of the Obama administration ever had any serious intentions of keeping a residual force there because none of their actions were serious," said McCain, who lost to Obama in the 2008 presidential election. About 160 U.S. soldiers will remain behind under State Department authority to train Iraqi forces along with a small contingent of soldiers guarding the U.S. Embassy. There will also likely be a U.S. special operations presence in Iraq. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Friday the United

States would start negotiating with Iraq about military training assistance after U.S. forces withdraw this year. Such an arrangement could potentially involve a troop presence in the country. "Once we've completed the reduction of the combat presence, then I think we begin a process of negotiating with them in order to determine what will be the nature of that relationship," Panetta told reporters traveling with him to Indonesia. He did not rule out having U.S. trainers rotate through Iraq, without being stationed there. Obama's announcement underscored the gaps that remain between U.S. and Iraqi priorities and political realities. "This has been inevitable," said David Mack, a former U.S. ambassador in the Middle East. "National security strategists in both Washington and Baghdad made a strong case for keeping U.S. military forces beyond 2011, but the domestic politics in both countries were against it," he said.

U.S. MILITARY ROLE

The U.S. military role in Iraq has been mostly reduced to advising the security forces in a country whose military was rebuilt from scratch following the 2003 invasion. Lingering weaknesses in Iraq's military capability would have been one reason to keep a larger U.S. troop presence. Another was Iran. Chronically critical of Iran's nuclear program, Washington is especially sensitive to the prospect of an expansionist Iran, following its recent allegations about a foiled Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington. "We remain very concerned that Iran is meddling, not just in the affairs of Iraq but of other countries in the region. And that's unacceptable," Pentagon spokesman George Little said this week when discussing a possible extended troop presence.

Gaddafi’s assets illusive

(Reuters) - Libya's new leaders will have to dig deep to find billions of dollars in cash and assets that Muammar Gaddafi and his family stashed around the world, and then will face daunting legal hurdles to recover them all, experts said on Friday. About $19 billion in assets believed to have been under the control of Gaddafi or associates have been located and frozen by the United Nations and member countries, U.S. officials have said since rebel forces began fighting to oust him from power. But other estimates suggest Gaddafi controlled as much as $30 billion in assets in the United States alone, plus large holdings in Europe and South Africa, said Victor Comras, a former money laundering expert for the United Nations and U.S. State Department. "Gaddafi was no dummy," Comras told Reuters. "The obvious and easy money, that held in Western banks and financial institutions, has largely already been located and blocked." Like other despots such as Iraq's Saddam Hussein and Democratic Republic of Congo's Mobutu Sese Seko, Gaddafi "likely also squirreled away large sums in assumed names or secret numbered accounts, or lockbox/deposit box stashes of currency, precious metals and marketable art and collectibles," said Comras. Other assets could include indirect holdings of shares and stakes in businesses and property held under assumed names or controlled by trusted associates. FINANCIAL FORENSICS

"Finding this money will require very advanced financial forensics and it will still be quite difficult to locate," Comras said. John Christensen, former economic adviser to the tax haven of Jersey and now head of the

Tax Justice Network, said assets could be hidden in trusts and front companies. "When the actual person dies, the trustees often help themselves to the trust," he said. "I've seen this happen in Jersey on a small scale and it happens on a large scale as well." Juan Zarate, a former White House and U.S. Treasury official who led the hunt for Saddam Hussein's assets, said: "The recovery of assets is complicated not just by the hunt itself but by the difficulties with identifying and disentangling ownership interests." Recovery could ironically be aided by the fact that Gaddafi and his family regarded the Libyan state's wealth and assets as their own, said Roger Tamraz, a Dubai-based financier who has had extensive dealings with Libya. Seeing Libyan state wealth as their own, they kept most money or assets they held overseas in sovereign entities such as the Libyan Investment Fund, which would be easier for Gaddafi's successors to recover than assets converted to personal use and then concealed, he said. "When they were running the show, (the Gaddafis) didn't feel they had (to distinguish) between what was government (wealth) and what was private," Tamraz said. FRAGILE BANKING SECTOR

Yet the NTC is moving cautiously in its efforts to recover overseas assets due to the fragility of the Libyan banking system, European and U.S. officials said. Before they can haul in any assets, experts and officials said, the new authorities in Tripoli will have to establish government procedures and mechanisms for efficiently and accountably handling large amounts of recovered wealth.

always tell people that Carol is as funny and open and gracious and lovely as you hope in your fantasies.” “The Carol Burnett show made me fall in love with sketch comedy and become my life long obsession to be part of an ensemble just like that wonderful cast (Vicki Lawrence, Harvey Korman, Tim Conway and Lyle Waggoner) who not only made me and all of America howl with laughter, but looked like they were having the time of their lives doing it,” said Lynch, who, as a 12-year-old, in 1972 Chicago, sent a fan letter (unsuccessfully) to Lawrence in hopes of getting on the show, the way Lawrence had written a letter to Burnett (successfully) with the same goal. Lynch’s childhood dream to work with Burnett finally came true in 2007 when they were cast as mother and daughter-in-law in the movie, Post Grad. Most recently, the two worked together on the hit show Glee, where Burnett guest starred as mom to Lynch’s cheerleading coach character, Sue Sylvester, in the episode where Sue marries herself. Yes, herself. Sue may not have the sense to recognize

we do nothing alone in this life, but Burnett does. She knows the love of her comedy family, and shared stories of her gang’s antics, knows the healing power of laughter, and knows firsthand the pain of losing a child to cancer; her daughter Carrie Hamilton, 38, died in 2002. “This is very special for me tonight,” said Burnett, wearing the teddy bear with a heart necklace given to her. “I can’t thank you enough, I’m so happy ... thank you for this and thank you for letting me a part of this community.” And with that, one last surprise walked in as local high school Madrigals paraded down the aisles, singing The Carol Burnett Show’s closing theme song, concluding, “seems we just get started and before you know it, comes the time we have to say, ‘So long.’” With love (and laughter, giggles and guffaws), thank you Carol Burnett. Fondly, your biggest fans. ••• For more information: Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation www.teddybearcancerfoundation.org

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: Consequences will be dependent on how you handle each matter you face. Reserved and practical action will win favors; overreacting and impetuous decisions will lead to disaster. Think, before it's too late to reverse your position. Play the game aboveboard and without malice. Your numbers are 5, 13, 19, 21, 27, 34, 41.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Check out job opportunities. Update your resume, take on a part-time job or start a small business. Put your energy to good use and network with people who may be interested in something you have to offer. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Have an open mind and you will gather information that will help you out in a social situation. Good fortune will come your way if you help the needy. A partnership will suffer if you argue. It's best to make peace, not war. 5 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your time, effort and energy into your home, assets and finances. Too much idle time will result in emotional problems caused by deception. Money is heading your way. Expect to win something or receive a gift of some sort. 2 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Present, promote and establish what it is you want to get in return. Love and romance are highlighted, and time spent with someone special will enhance your relationship. Don't give in to someone trying to dump additional responsibilities on you. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get out, have fun and explore new avenues, but don't take risks that can end in personal injury. Your adventuresome nature will get you in over your head. Exercise restraint and common sense before you let the daredevil in you take over. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Good fortune will come to you if you put time and effort into your home, family and assets. You can buy, sell or make a move that will enhance your life and ease your stress. A job opportunity must be considered. 5 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take care of personal paperwork that has been left undone. Do research or attend a seminar that will define what action you need to take in order to get ahead. Plan to spend the evening hours with someone you love. Stick close to home. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be misinterpreted if you are too vocal about the way you think or how you feel. Discipline will be required when it comes to setting a budget and sticking to it. Being honest with yourself will help you make better choices. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Help others and it will spark an idea that will bring in extra cash. Getting together with old friends, attending a reunion or visiting places you used to frequent will bring back memories and the desire to resurrect something you used to enjoy doing. 4 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go over contracts or other paperwork that needs updating. A partnership can be improved if you share the trials and tribulations, as well as your successes. Tend to the little aggravations now and you will avoid dealing with big issues later. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't let what others do or say get to you. Showing anger will put you in an awkward position that may affect your reputation. Assess your situation and take care of anything unsat-
