By DAN MORIARTY Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The massive City Hall energy-efficiency and renovation project is winding down this week, with municipal employees slated to move back into the historic building next week. A group of about 25 employees were given a sneak peek yesterday of the modifications made to the century old structure, drawing oohs and aahs as they toured the restructured offices. Gone are window air conditioners that pocked the building in the past, gone are huge cast-iron steam radiators, gone are the linoleum floors. The building has been equipped with new energy-efficient forced hot water radiators and with central air conditioning replacing the inefficient air conditioning window units and single-pane windows which leaked energy to the outside. The original hardwood floors were uncovered as linoleum was pulled up and sanded, revealing the beauty that was hidden for decades. Doors were sanded and refinished, and interior office space reconfigured to provide better space for both employees and members of the public seeking services in those offices. Mayor Daniel M. Knapik said that while
improving energy-efficiency was the factor that led to the City Hall renovation, there were other goals. “The utility and energy management project was the reason for the renovation,” Knapik said, “But while the walls were open, we decided to reconfigure the space to better facilitate City and School Department functions. “When I arrived in this building four years ago, more than 30 percent of the interior space was unusable,” Knapik said. “So one of the primary goals of this project was to reconfigure the building so that every space could be used for people, to have the workflow make sense. “Another goal was to make the whole building American with Disabilities (Act) compliant,” Knapik said. Every office is now equipped with counters that can be used by people in wheelchairs, office doors were widened to allow access and a wheelchair lift system added on the third floor to give access to all of the offices on that floor. Knapik said that many of the physical modifications returned the structure to the original configuration of the building. See City Hall, Page 6
Board approves sewer design funding By DAN MORIARTY Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The Water Commission approved a funding request for the design of two sewer improvement projects presented by City Engineer Mark Cressotti last night. Cressotti said that both project will position the city to extend sewer service into neighborhoods currently without sewers, but which have been included in the city’s sewer expansion program. The board approved $60,420 for design of a sewer line on Big Wood Drive that will be extended in the future to include nearby residential streets such as Blueberry Ridge and Pineridge Drive. “There is a resident on the culde-sac section of Big Wood Drive whose septic system is failing and whose property backs up to Shaker Road,” Cressotti said. “He is willing to give us a sewer easement through his property and to

“There’s much to be said for challenging fate instead of ducking behind it.”
MARK CRESSOTTI share the cost of the design work.” Cressotti said that design work will include calculations to extend the sewer line to the neighborhood currently not served by city sewers. “Strategically we need to get sewers in there,” Cressotti said. “The resident is looking to grant a
sewer easement to service that entire neighborhood. This is as good, if not better, than other alternatives and it sets up for future extension.” Initially the resident and neighbors on the cul-de-sac will have sewer service, but the design will allow that line to be extended. The commission awarded the contract to Rob Levesque & Associates of Westfield. Cressotti estimated construction of the initial stage at $120,000. The second project is much larger in scale, replacing a sewerage pump station now servicing Westfield High School on Montgomery Road. The current pump station was designed to serve only the school and not the adjoining neighborhood and is connected to the city’s sewer system by a pressurized line. Water Resource Superintendent Dave Billips said that he is planning to upgrade a number of the systems aging pump stations, but
has identified “critical ones” that need to be replaced in the near future. Billips said that each station will cost between $500,000 and $750,000 to replace and that he will seek City Council approval for a $7 million bond package. “When the Montgomery Road pump station backs up, it backs up into the Westfield High School swimming pool,” Billips said. “I need to get Montgomery Road on the upgrade list so if the bond is approved we can move quickly.” Cressotti said the current pump station, serving WHS, is a shallow system, but that the new facility will be a deep pump station to allow installation of a gravity sewer line servicing residences and businesses along Montgomery Road. The pump station will then push the sewerage through a pressurized line to connect with existing gravity feed lines. The commission awarded a $150,000 design and engineering contract to CDM of East Hartford.
By HOPE E. TREMBLAY Staff Writer SOUTHWICK – Superintendent of Schools John Barry assured the Board of Selectmen last night that the Fiscal Year 2015 school district budget would be lean. “It’s incumbent upon us to have a very conservative budget,” said Barry. “No new initiatives, no new programs, no new staff. It’s our intent to keep [the budget] as reasonable as possible.” Barry and the Southwick-TollandGranville Regional School Committee acknowledged that taxpayers in all three towns are bearing the costs of the campus renovations and they want to keep the budget tight. Southwick Chief Administrative Officer Karl Stinehart asked if they planned a level service budget. Barry said they did hope to have level service or better. “Where we can see savings, I want to be aggressive about that,” Barry said. The two boards met yesterday in the superintenSUPERINTENDENT dent’s conferDR. JOHN BARRY ence room to have a preliminary budget discussion. “It’s really early but our purpose is to get a feeling from you on how to proceed,” Barry said. “We’re in the beginning of the process.” Barry and School Business Manager Stephen Presnal gave budget directives to principals and program directors already. They expect to receive initial reports by Christmas and will have more information by the time the selectmen and finance committee host budget meetings in early February. Barry said while the budget projection in February will be closer to reality, it will be more of a “summary” of the budget. “We may have House One by then,” Barry said, referring to the governor’s early prediction of state funds for schools. Barry and Presnal said those numbers change and the February budget will not be the final budget. As far as projected cuts, Barry said they know they will lose one position. “We will lose a grade five position – we know that,” he said. “We will go from six fifth grade classes to five.” Selectmen Russell Fox and Joseph Deedy asked about the future of Granville Village School. Barry said originally they had thought grades seven and eight would move to the Southwick campus next year. “I think in FY16 it’s about 99 percent that Granville will be a K-6 school,” said Barry. Barry said they decided to wait another year to bring the middle school students to Southwick because the new middle/ high school should be open by then. Rather than transfer students to Powdermill Middle School next year and then the new combined school the year after, they opted to make it easier on the students with one transition. Barry said the five-year plan for Granville Village School has it remaining open as a K-6 school and that continues to be the plan. If the population there dwindles, it will be revisited.

Ghost hunters in Pa. are mistaken for burglars GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania are investigating a complaint concerning a ghost hunt that went bust after a police officer mistakenly thought it was a burglary in progress. The Gettysburg Times reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1bfEf0U ) that the Thanksgiving night ghost tour ended with two tourists and their guide being detained at gunpoint. A patrolman passing a closed store in Gettysburg says he saw flashlights inside, so he went in and handcuffed and searched the three ghost hunters. Police called the owner, who confirmed the tour operator had permission to use the allegedly haunted Civil War-era building. The first Union general killed in the Battle of Gettysburg was brought to the building after being fatally wounded.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Wednesday, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2013. There are 27 days left in the year.
n Dec. 4, 1619, a group of settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in presentday Charles City County, Virginia, where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. (Some suggest this was the true first Thanksgiving in America, ahead of the Pilgrims’ arrival in Massachusetts.)
ON THIS DATE: In 1783, Gen. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York. In 1816, James Monroe of Virginia was elected the fifth president of the United States. In 1912, Medal of Honor recipient Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, the Marine Corps pilot who led the “Black Sheep Squadron” during World War II, was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson left Washington on a trip to France to attend the Versailles Peace Conference. In 1942, U.S. bombers struck the Italian mainland for the first time in World War II. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the dismantling of the Works Progress Administration, which had been created to provide jobs during the Depression. In 1945, the Senate approved U.S. participation in the United Nations by a vote of 65-7. In 1965, the United States launched Gemini 7 with Air Force Lt. Col. Frank Borman and Navy Cmdr. James A. Lovell aboard.
In 1978, San Francisco got its first female mayor as City Supervisor Dianne Feinstein (FYN’-styn) was named to replace the assassinated George Moscone. In 1984, a five-day hijack drama began as four armed men seized a Kuwaiti airliner en route to Pakistan and forced it to land in Tehran, where the hijackers killed American passenger Charles Hegna. In 1991, Associated Press correspondent Terry Anderson, the longest held of the Western hostages in Lebanon, was released after nearly seven years in captivity. Pan American World Airways ceased operations. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush ordered American troops to lead a mercy mission to Somalia, threatening military action against warlords and gangs who were blocking food for starving millions. In 1996, the Mars Pathfinder lifted off from Cape Canaveral and began speeding toward Mars on a 310 million-mile odyssey. (It arrived on Mars in July 1997.)
TEN YEARS AGO:
President George W. Bush scrapped import tariffs he’d imposed earlier to help the battered U.S. steel industry. Baltimore-based federal prosecutor Jonathan P. Luna was found dead behind the parking lot of a well-drilling company in Lancaster County, Pa. (The case remains unsolved.)
FIVE YEARS AGO: U.S. automakers drew fresh skepticism from lawmakers during a Senate Banking Committee hearing over their pleas for an
expanded $34 billion rescue package they said was needed for them to survive. For the first time, an NFL game was broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Boston, New York and Los Angeles. (Although the telecast was marred by technical glitches, fans were mostly forgiving as they watched the San Diego Chargers beat the Oakland Raiders 34-7.)
ONE YEAR AGO: A homeless man, Naeem Davis, was taken into custody in New York City in the death of a man who’d been pushed in front of a subway train; Davis would be charged with second-degree murder. Two Australian radio disc jockeys impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles made a prank call to a London hospital and succeeded in getting nurses to tell them the condition of the hospitalized Duchess of Cambridge; a nurse who took the call would be found dead three days later in an apparent suicide.

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Two Worcester men are facing voter fraud charges stemming from last month’s municipal election. Fifty-year-old Mark Atlas is charged with voting under someone else’s name. Authorities say 57-year-old Richard Suchocki provided Atlas with the name and address of another registered voter. Police began investigating when that voter went to cast his ballot on Nov. 5 and was told he had already checked in. Suchocki’s lawyer tells The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit. ly/1bfJP78 ) that his client “denies that he has done anything wrong” and will be exonerated. Atlas could not be reached for comment. Authorities did not disclose a possible motive.

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A Springfield man has been sentenced to two years in jail for choking and beating the mother of his unborn child. Johnny Rodriguez was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty in Hampshire Superior Court to three counts of assault and battery on a pregnant person. Prosecutors say the 22-year-old Rodriguez got into an argument with the victim in South Hadley last December. The woman was pregnant with his child and is the mother of two of his other children. Authorities say during the argument, Rodriguez grabbed the victim by the throat, pushed her against a refrigerator and choked until she was unable to breathe or speak. The Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit. ly/1eVh15p ) reports that his lawyer says Rodriguez is remorseful and trying to be a positive influence on his children.

THE WESTFIELD NEWS
Yes, I was just wondering the paving the roads that were supposed to be done around downtown area like Franklin Street and several more there that was on the time to get done. I’m assuming that the paving plant must be closed now with the weather changing and the temperatures but they should have got that done like they had said, especially Franklin Street. I knew it wouldn’t get done because once Knapik got back in he’s all set now for a couple more years so maybe next year or the year after they’ll get it done. Each of the roads named needed utility upgrades and to overlay them again would simply be a waste of money so the decision was made to upgrade the utilities first then pave later. The work done on Franklin was needed as a temporary measure, as the gas line replacement project and associated work left the east bound lane of Franklin in terrible condition. Yeah, good morning PulseLine! Over here on the north side Councilman Keefe was reelected and telling everybody what he did for the city of Westfield and everything. I like that. Ask him what has he done for his ward. He lives just a bit up the road from the pumping station at the corner of Force Avenue and Prospect Street where there must be ten truckloads of leaves all over the place blowing into people’s yards. People are even blowing the leaves out in the street on Reservoir Avenue, getting them out of the yard from where they’ve blown in from the pumping station. You mean to say he can’t see that? You try to get a hold of him, you can’t get a hold of him to tell him anything. Like I said, I’d like to have him publish in the paper what he’s done for his ward. Have a good day. The article Father pleads guilty to assaulting his son: a sixyear-old. And what does he get? Two years probation. He would have gotten more if he had done that to a dog. This is a sad situation. I don’t mean to say that abusing a dog is all right but make the comparison. One of my pet peeves in the city of Westfield is sending fire apparatus, now its ambulances, to people who have locked themselves out of their car. I cannot believe that the Westfield News wouldn’t make a comment about this when I’ve called in before. Do you think it’s economically viable to send a fire truck with two men on it to unlock somebody’s car? How about handing them a AAA application? Unbelievable! Now an ambulance sent to unlock people’s vehicles. Where’s the sense in this? When it comes time for a new vehicle I’m sure we’ll bond for a fire apparatus so we can do lockouts. Unreal! And while I’m at a stuttering rant, I can’t even get a clear conscious thought out of my squash I cannot believe we’re spending $175,000 of Community Investment Act money on a whip building. What are we going to do with that? Make cat-o-ninetails? Unbelievable. And I’m sure at that whip building they’ll be lining up outside to get in when it’s a museum just like the old Chinese restaurants Sue’s to eat some pork fried rice. And there’s money for that whip building and Ken Frazer, the poor bastard, he has to feed those stray dogs sawdust!
WSU Letter to the Editor
Hi Everyone, This semester, Maureen McCartney encouraged me to teach Environmental Biology as one of our “First Year Only” classes. If you don’t know, these classes catch students during their first semester at Westfield State University, giving them an opportunity to bond and learn together as a cohort. It has been a really cool experience for me watching these students grow as they confront all that life throws at them during their first semester away from home. Recently, the students “volunteered” their lab periods to clean up the University Wildlands and property along the Westfield River. They cleaned up several home remodeling dump sites (bathroom tiles and sinks), many vodka nips, a whole lot of Dunkin’ Donuts rubbish, tires, a TV, dental flossers, garden gates, and the trash left at an abandoned homeless camp. Few had ever seen a homeless camp or really considered being homeless. It gave us all some time to reflect on our own lots in life – and good fortune. All together, the students cleaned up two pickup truck loads and a trailer full of rubbish. Give a pat on the back to these students when you see them, for participating in the cleanup and making WSU a nicer place: Christopher Abbott Kaitlyn Amuso Holly Brouillette Dylan Burns Matthew Carlin Leah Chevalier Alex Drummey Meaghan Fuller Taylor Gageby Faith Garbecki Hayley Gentile Ethan Goldberg Emily Hendrickson Aimee Hodgman Andrew Jacobs Nicole Kana Kaitlin Keet Ashley McWilliams Sergei Meehan Rory Mitchell Emily Stockhaus some new lab tech, Sarah Michael Vorwerk, Ph.D. Ashley Monahan Shannon Wallace, and Tomas, who got the necessary Professor and Chair Michael Oliver Jason Hinton, who is not in supplies for us to do the Department Kellee Quinn the class but was bored and cleanup! of Environmental Science Anthony Spano came along to help.

Clinton: ‘I was trying to be supportive’

By JOSE DELREAL Politico.com Bill Clinton explained his comments about President Barack Obama keeping his word to the millions of Americans whose health insurance plans will be canceled under his signature health care law: He was trying to help. “I was trying to be supportive of it,” the former president told CNN Español’s Juan Carlos López in an interview airing Tuesday. “I don’t think you can find anybody in America who has worked harder for (Obama’s) re-election or supported this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the American people more than I did.” Clinton is speaking to several Latino-focused cable news channels, including an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that will air at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The media swing precedes the Clinton Global Initiative’s Latin America meeting in Rio de Janeiro. Clinton made headlines in November when he told the website Ozy that the administration “should honor the commitment” it made that Americans would be able to keep their existing health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act. Clinton’s remark sparked speculation that the Clinton’s were subtly distancing themselves from the ACA ahead of the 2016 presidential election, in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, could be a candidate. Clinton forcefully pushed back against that idea in the interview. “[I]t was obvious to me, listening to [Obama], that he wanted the American people to feel that he had kept his commitment, and that they didn’t understand that he, in fact, did grandfather in–that is, protect–all the policies that were in existence on the day he signed the health care bill,” Clinton said. On the subject of the 2016 presidential election, Clinton reiterated that he does not know if his wife will run, and said it is too early to shift attention to the next White House race. “I think, and she believes, that the country should spend at least another year working very hard on the problems we have,” Clinton said. “We have very serious challenges in America, and we have responsibilities around the world. I think it’s a big mistake, this constant four-year, peripatetic campaign is not good for America.” Clinton also praised another potential 2016 contender on the Democratic side: Vice President Joe Biden. “I’ve known him for years and years and I have a very high opinion of him. I care a great deal about him and I think he’s
done a good job for the President and the country,” Clinton said of Biden. “[I]f he runs and he’s the nominee, I’ll try to help him win. I think the world of him.” In a separate appearance with Fusion, Clinton expressed concern over revelations that the National Security Agency has spied on world leaders. “I think there ought to be very explicit rules on listening in on conversations of world leaders,” he told Ramos. Clinton also said he believes the NSA data collection scandal that dominated headlines this fall has had a “damaging effect” at home and abroad. “We’re getting in a position here where people didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “So I think the most important thing we can do now is have a really public discussion about what the rules should be.” But while calling for increased transparency, he also pointed out that other countries have similar programs. In the same interview, Clinton addressed one of his most parodied political equivocations: “I didn’t inhale.” “I didn’t say I was holier than thou, I said I tried,” Clinton told Ramos. “I never denied that I used marijuana. I told the truth, I thought it was funny.”

Miller Jr., said that the reconfiguration “is well done, but not overly done.” Another major part of the renovation, which included installing a new slate roof, was to add additional support structure for the massive weight of that roof. “An additional steel superstructure to support the slate roof was installed,” Knapik said. “All of that weight is now being carried by the steel structure.” Knapik said that municipal employees will begin to move back into the renovated building on Monday beginning with his staff at 27 Washington St., which includes Auditing and Purchasing staff, Community Development and City Advancement Officer Jeff Daley. Staff now housed in the Westwood Building on North Elm Street will then begin to return, an effort that includes moving a large number of files needed for municipal administration while city hall work was underway. Building Superintendent Jon Flagg said that he and Fire Department officials, Superintendent of Alarms Greg Health and Deputy Chief Patrick Egloff, the department’s fire prevention office, will inspect the building Friday.

With a little creativity, you Zillions of Gifts & can design a gift basket to dazzle your loved one no matter who they are or what their interests might be. You just have to think outside of the box or basket, so to speak. Here’s how to put it all together. The first step in designing a successful Stocking Stuffers. gift basket is to choose a subject or combination of subjects that interests the recipient. Next, you need an appropriate Right here in your very own backyard. container to hold the gift or gifts.The container should be associated with the type of gifts it will enclose or decorative in its own right. A cardboard box won’t do. From there, it’s just a matter of filling the container with the appropriate items. Here are some ideas: • Gym baG—for the guy or gal who likes to work out. Fill it with towels, shampoo, hand weights or a gym membership. • Ice bucket—for the wine connoisseur. A nice bottle of red wine and a bottle opener are all that is needed, though you might throw in a brick of cheese and some French bread. • backpack—for the outdoor enthusiast or bookworm.

THE WESTFIELD NEWSSPORTS B&G Club hosts 6th annual ‘Gordy’s First Race’
BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
Courtesy of Boys & Girls Club WESTFIELD – On January 1, 2014, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield is hosting its sixth annual “Gordy’s First Race” in honor of Gordon F. Bates who, at the Club, was known as “the Organizer, the Race Director and the Go-to guy in the Orange Hat.”
“Gordon was proof that a core group of people with a mission can do anything!”
Westfield United Basketball practice
LERRYN GODDEN Finance Director at the Boys & Girls Club.
The race is sponsored by B&E Tool. It all started in 1994 when a group of runners from the Empire One Running Club approached the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield with the idea of a half marathon fundraiser. One of those runners was Gordon Bates. The proposal was to offer runners the opportunity to tune up for the Boston Marathon. Over the course of the next 15 years, the race grew from some 100 runners to close to 500. This was to be a collaborative effort benefiting both the Empire One Running Club and the Boys & Girls Club. Bates was one of the original group members to organize and take charge of the event on race day. Eleven years later, Bates was informed by the Empire Running Club that they could no longer support the event with the large amount of volunteers required to coordinate and direct a successful half marathon. Obviously, Bates did not agree with their decision. In 2004, he was able to pull a group of people together to help out for another race. That year, he led the committee to successfully raise more than $7,000 for the Boys & Girls Club. Not only did he ensure the safety of the runners with radio volunteers, water stops and directions, Bates made sure that the bag piper was on Hillside Road to greet the runners after that grueling hill. “Gordon was proof that a core group of people with a mission can do anything!” said Lerryn Godden, Finance Director at the Boys & Girls Club. “Bates could do it all. He never once lost his patience. It didn’t matter if it was waiting an extra two hours for Jane Goodman to cross the finish line or being approached in the Club lobby by a man clothed in only a towel and covered with soap because we ran out of hot water in the showers. Thanks to Gordon, the Half Marathon committee, and of course our major sponsor Oleksak Lumber, the Club has been the beneficiary of over $100,000 in net proceeds over the past 20 years.” In September 2008, Bates passed away in Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston. That year, on behalf of the club, he was inducted into the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield’s Hall of Fame. “He was sorely missed at that year’s race and five years later, today, we still miss him.” So on the first day of 2014 in his memory, the sixth annual “Gordy’s First Race” at the Boys & Girls Club will be held. The application and online registration is available online at www.bgcwestfield.org Race day registration is available at the Boys & Girls Club from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Post-race food and refreshments, including hot chocolate, are free to all participants of 10K and 5K at the Boys & Girls Club. The Boys & Girls Club will also be giving out to the runners their choice of an Orange Beanie Cap or a Hot Chocolate Mug. All results from the race are provided by GreystoneRacing.net. For questions or additional information please send an email to email@example.com If you would like more information about programs at the Boys & Girls Club to get your child involved, or if you would like to volunteer, please contact Kellie Brown, director of operations at 413-562-2301 or visit our website at www.bgcwestfield.org.

Top-ranked Amherst topples Owls WESTFIELD – Senior guard Aaron Toomey (Greensboro, NC) poured in 37 points to power No. 1 ranked Amherst College to an 83-59 victory over Westfield State University in non-conference men’s basketball on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Amherst – the reigning NCAA Division III national champions and ranked first in the country this season – boosted its record to 4-0 in winning its 28th straight game. Westfield is 4-2. Toomey – the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division III player of the year in 2012-13 – put on a dazzling shooting display as he was 9 for 12 from the field and 13 for 14 from the foul line. The smooth shooting 6-1 guard drained six of eight 3-point attempts. Toomey scored 17 first-half points to stake the Lord Jeffs to a 41-25 lead at the break. Amherst jumped out to an early 7-0 lead but Westfield rallied to take a 9-7 lead five minutes into the game.
Westfield took a 14-13 lead at the 11:32 mark on a layup by junior captain Grant Cooper (Northampton), who led the Owls with 14 points, nine rebounds and four assists. But the tall and talented Lord Jeffs went on a 15-3 run over the next five minutes – capped by a Toomey trey – for a 28-17 advantage. Toomey flushed another 3-pointer to give Amherst its biggest lead of the first half, 41-23, at the 1:52 mark. Toomey also gave Amherst its biggest lead of the second half, 60-32, by canning two free throws with 14:03 remaining. Scoring in double figures for Amherst were Connor Green (12 points), Tom Killian (10) and David George (10). George and Green led the Lord Jeffs with nine and eight rebounds, respectively, and Killian dished out a game-high six assists. Despite Toomey’s hot shooting from beyond the arc, Amherst only made 8 for 23 from 3-point range. But the Lord Jeffs shot a sizzling 24 for 28 from the foul line.

Annie’s Mailbox By KATHY MITCHELL and MARCY SUGAR
Heartbroken Dear Annie: I have not shared a birthday, holiday or special occasion with my son for the past five years, since he married. He has two children now. We always have been close, but I’m so sad that my daughterin-law won’t let me be a grandmother. Their first year of marriage, they alternated holidays and combined our families. When they had their first child, however, “Rhonda” said it was too much, and now all holidays are spent with her family. They are wonderful people, but she is not willing to share her toddlers’ time with her husband’s family, including his siblings. I do not get the privilege of babysitting or having the kids over to my house for the day. I am not allowed to pick them up or bring them places. I live nearby, but they never stop over. Rhonda is socially immature, and I believe she is naive as well as selfish. She holds all power and control and is judgmental and unkind. She gives every excuse to avoid us. Her family has tried to reason with her, to no avail. My son is terribly hurt by this and tries his best to include me for a short visit at least once a month. I am grateful, but not satisfied. I am fun-loving, happy, giving, appreciative and accepting. I make the most of whatever time I am allowed. But Rhonda is negative, self-centered and rude and does her best to spoil the visit. I’ve tried several times to discuss this with her, have prayed and have shared words of wisdom and scripture, but nothing breaks through. My son prefers to avoid a confrontation. Should I also give up? -- Grandmother Missing Out Dear Grandmother: How sad that Rhonda denies her children the privilege of knowing all of their grandparents. Would your son be willing to bring the kids to your home for a visit without Rhonda? And if you can manage it, consider inviting the entire family, including Rhonda’s folks, to your place now and then. We also recommend you work on ways to warm up the relationship with Rhonda. Surely you can find something to admire about her and keep quiet about the rest. We hope, in time, she will realize that what goes around comes around. Dear Annie: My husband and I frequently go out to dinner with several other couples. One of the wives is a vegetarian. That’s fine, but she sometimes makes a scene with the server. She argues about the way things are prepared and accuses the waitstaff of lying. It’s become quite embarrassing, and some of our other friends refuse to go out with her anymore. It recently happened again. My husband and I were mortified when she sent her meal back and accused the waiter of giving her the wrong dish. It ruined our night. I think we should say something, but my husband thinks it will ruin the friendship. Any suggestions? -- Carnivore in Florida Dear Carnivore: It is not unheard of for restaurants to prepare vegetarian meals with chicken broth or beef stock without declaring it. However, it is rude to accuse the waitstaff of lying and cause a scene. We recommend you do a search in your area for vegetarian restaurants when socializing with this couple. Otherwise, let them know you won’t be going out to eat with them because it is obviously too stressful. Dear Readers: Sunday, Dec. 8, is The Compassionate Friends’ Worldwide Candle Lighting in memory of all the children who have died. Please light a candle in the evening at 7 p.m., local time, and remember them with love. For more information, log on to compassionatefriends.org. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to email@example.com, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.
HINTS FROM HELOISE WHAT ARE BUTTER-FLAVORED GRANULES? Dear Heloise: A few years ago, my mother gave me a book of recipes from her church. Several of the recipes call for BUTTERFLAVORED GRANULES. What are they, and where can I find them? -- L. King in California Butter-flavored granules are a powdered form of butter that is fatfree, gluten-free and good for those watching calories. The main ingredients are natural butter flavor (processed into a dry form), maltodextrin (a natural carbohydrate that comes from corn) and salt. You can find them in most grocery stores in the baking or spice aisle. Keep the top sealed tightly, and once opened, store in the refrigerator. They are good to keep on hand, as they can be used for many foods. -- Heloise P.S.: I love them! I sometimes mix some with nonfat sour cream or yogurt to top a baked potato. Or I use them on steamed veggies, in brown rice with veggies and on hot oatmeal, among a few other things. EASY CLOSE Dear Heloise: It’s frustrating trying to open bread ties. When I get the wire unwound, I replace it with a clothespin. No more twisting and untying. -- Pat M. in Florida

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013: This year you will follow your intuition, especially when dealing with family and real-estate matters. Come summertime, you could be unusually lucky in these areas. If you are single, your life needs to have an element of excitement about it in order for a romantic relationship to be successful. Otherwise, it could become explosive. If you are attached, the two of you work together to solidify your financial and emotional security. Listen to your thoughts more often, as they will lead you in the right direction. CAPRICORN understands money as well as you do, but he or she looks at finances quite differently. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH At times, you just can’t seem to give a higher-up the respect he or she desires. Are you revealing your true feelings? The unexpected marks your actions. To many people, you are changing in front of their eyes. Tonight: Burn the candle at both ends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Kick back and take in the big picture. How you see a situation could change as a result of this process. Once you gain a better understanding of the mechanics involved, you will transform your ideas accordingly. Tonight: Listen to what a loved one shares. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Deal with a loved one directly. Your fatigue could mark a discussion with this person. Take a deep breath before you start. Realize what you hope to get from this situation, and you will be able to make a decision about whether the timing is right. Tonight: Togetherness. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Defer to others, and follow through on what you want to do. That extra time you save could make all the difference in what happens. You’ll hear a lot from someone in your daily life about what you need to do. Make your own choices. Tonight: Listen to your inner voice first. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Tap into an associate’s imagination, and you will be delighted and challenged simultaneously. You might want to reverse direction or do something differently. Once you settle on a new path, don’t let anyone distract you. Tonight: Push on till the wee hours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Your perceptions come from your intuition. Sometimes a partner might make fun of this quality. This person just wishes he or she could home in like you do. Be willing to rearrange your schedule. You might decide to approach a topic differently. Tonight: Fun and games. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Tension builds and creates greater motivation to complete a personal matter. You know that some of your ideas are great, but you get distracted easily. Revise your thinking if it becomes apparent that you might be straying down the wrong path. Tonight: Head home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Resist following your gut, as it could lead to trouble. A situation involving your health and daily life could take an interesting turn. You might want to assess your plans and your approach to an important matter. Can you avoid a power play? Tonight: Visit with a loved one. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Be sensitive to your financial situation and where it could land you. You might want to jump on a sudden offer, but you seem to be restrained. What might appear to be a good risk suddenly could turn out to be too dangerous to mess around with. Tonight: Your treat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You are in your element. A family member might test your decisions as of late. You’ll adjust your approach as a result of their attitude. You seem to be changing. If a thought keeps lurking in your mind, listen to it; it probably has value. Tonight: The world is your oyster. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Saying less and listening more is a safer course for you to take. What you hear could be quite unexpected yet significant. Use caution with your finances right now. A friend could share
a secret that might help you make a decision. Tonight: Not to be found. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Zero in on what you want. A friendship plays a strong role in the next few days. Your intuition also might be somewhat important, as you pick up a lot on a subliminal level. Make a call to a parent or older friend later today. Tonight: Don’t overthink a personal matter.

WESTFIELD - Author Lori Szepelak of Southampton relishes her messages from the angelic realm. She will share her experiences of how her new book, Floors of the Forest, came to fruition during a program titled â€œAn Evening of Angelsâ€? on Dec. 10 at the Westfield Athenaeum. The 6:30 p.m. program in the Lang Auditorium is part of the Athenaeumâ€™s monthly Local Author Series. The event is free and open to the public. In her new book, just released from Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, Szepelak shares the revelations she received from angels one winter morning in February 2013 on her way to work. Szepelak is also the author of An Angel on My Shoulder which debuted in 2010. â€œWhile I was driving to work I asked my guardian angel to help me determine the message of my second book,â€? she said. â€œAlmost immediately, I heard the words â€˜floors of the forest,â€™ and then the need to educate individuals â€“ especially young people - across the globe to work in concert with their guardian angel to help preserve Mother Earth.â€? Szepelak noted that she was intrigued by the title and the concept fit perfectly into her own lifestyle â€“ being an avid hiker and scuba diver. â€œI incorporated messages I heard in the spring of 2013 from the angels with what I knew about the environment, as well as my personal experiences in nature, and soon the book came to fruition effortlessly,â€? she said. â€œThe angels were also particular in stressing that young people need to be engaged now so Iâ€™m hopeful that teens especially will consider attending the lecture,â€? she said.
