10—THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1998 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Time out Newsday Crossword TREES COMPANY by Frank Longo Edited by Stanley Newman. Mole was the 'angry' kind Dear Ann Landers: I am one i of those millions of people who read your column every day but never thought I would be writing • to you. I'm a mother of a son. He flew home for Christmas from Indiana University. One night, while we were washing the dinner dishes, I noticed a mole on his upper inner arm. It looked like an angry mole - a mole that had a mind of its own. My husband said, "It's nothing." My instinct told me otherwise. After my son returned to school, I remembered a column you printed a while ago about moles that were cancerous. I phoned our son in Indiana and insisted that he see a doctor immediately. Yes, Ann, the mole was cancerous - the nasty kind. My son had quite a bit of skin removed and will follow up with a chest X-ray and a blood test. The doctor seems optimistic. The reason I am writing is to thank you. Unknowingly, you gave me the support I needed to trust my instincts. I had no support from my family. There is no way on earth I can thank you enough. - A Mother in Stockton, Calif. Dear Stockton Mom: All moles that have a raised surface, irregular borders or a change in color or look "angry" and active should be seen promptly by a doctor. I pray that your son caught his in time. Meanwhile, 'to anyone in my reading audi- ;ence who has such a mole: Will you please see a doctor immedi- ' ately - preferably a dermatologist? ANN LANDERS Dear Ann Landers: A while back, you asked your readers who have been married a long time to write and tell you what it was that made their marriages last. Well, here's my contribution: My bride and I will both be 76 years old in August. Our formula is as follows: dining out and dancing twice a week - without fail. She goes on Tuesday, and I go on Thursday. You may use my name and city. It's OK with me. -- Ralph Millsaps, Statesville, N.C. Dear Ralph: Thanks for sharing the secret of your happy marriage. It's your delightful sense of humor. P.S.: I hope you cleared this with your wife. Otherwise, you will never hear the end of it. Dear Ann Landers: Once again, you have performed a valuable public service by informing readers to be wary of charitable organizations that spend most of their money raising money instead of doing good work. The National Charities Information Bureau (NCIB) will be happy to give your readers guidance in making their charitable contributions. It is a fact that virtually all major charities use outside solicitation firms to help them raise funds. The key issue is how many cents out of each dollar actually go to the programs a donor wishes to support. To help contributors make wise decisions and to protect the charitable organizations that do good work, the NCIB will identify by name those that meet reasonable criteria and those that are and are not fully accountable to contributors whose support they seek. We would be pleased to send a copy of our current "Wise Giving Guide" to your readers, free of charge, if they call 1-800-501- NCIB, ext. 4003. Or they can write to our offices at NCIB, 19 Union Square West, New York, N.Y. 10003-3395 (www.give.org). -• James Bausch, president, NCIB Dear James Bausch: Thank you for your guidance. I hope that 800 number is prepared for a jillion calls and that you have plenty of guides on hand. You're going to be swamped. What can you give the person who has everything? Ann Lan- ders'booklet, "Gems," is ideal for a nightstand or coffee table. "Gems " is a collection of Ann Landers' most requested poems and essays. Send a self- addressed, long, business-size envelope and a check or money order for $5.25 (this includes postage and handling) to: Gems, c/o Ann Landers, P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, 111. 60611-0562.

Ask pertinent questions if there is any point that isn't clear. Back away from the deal if they want you to use your own money. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get out and socialize with friends.

Kennedy like a rock star during his brief presidential crusade in 1968 - chasing his motorcade, grasping'so desperately at his arms they were cut and sore after a day of campaigning. That was before Watergate, before tracking polls, before a weary disappointment in politics set in that can be traced partly to the night Kennedy lay dying with a bullet in his head. Could it be 30 years ago? Watching the Discovery Channel's three-hour documentary on Kennedy, which premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT, it feels like a much more distant time in public life. Real passion for politics, and a politician who bares his soul to the public seem out of place today. So Jack Newfield, Kennedy biographer and the film's co-producer, set out to evoke that spirit as well as to tell the Kennedy story. "This film was intended as the antidote to 'Primary Colors,' which was about the cynicism of politics," Newfield said. "I hope this is about the idealism of politics." Kennedy visited migrant workers in California and spent time among the poor in Brooklyn's tough Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood. Not only did he feel their pain, he convinced them he was their best hope to do something about it. Former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, one of the film's three narrators, called it "sensual politics." The documentary starts slowly, detailing Kennedy's upbringing in a competitive family. One anecdote, about how Kennedy's father didn't consider a ski trip successful unless his boys had some sort of injury, takes on an eerie resonance with the death of RFK's son, Michael, on the ski slopes last New Year's Eve. It follows Kennedy's career as a Senate aide and attorney general in the his brother's administration. He attacked organized crime figures and labor 1 corruption. t The film's "impact deepens when it describes Kennedy's growth as a man and politician after John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Robert Kennedy, who frequently climbed a fence at Arlington National Cemetery to pray by his brother's grave, became much more reflective and unafraid to let the public see his doubts. The New York senator agonized over the Vietnam War, eventually opposing it and admitting to mistakes in JFK's administration. Initially he was slow to back the civil rights struggle - as attorney general, he authorized a wiretap of the Rev. Martin Luther King - before becoming a strong supporter. He acknowledged waiting too long to run for president, jumping into the race only after Eugene McCarthy proved that dissatisfaction with the Johnson administration could be tapped. "In order to evaluate the current crop of politicians, you need to know how good a politician can be," Newfield said. "You can't measure David Mamet until you read Shakespeare. You can't judge Bernie Williams unless you saw Willie Mays. "I think (Kennedy) was just a politician, but he was as good as a politician can get, in terms of getting more open, more thoughtful and more independent as he got close to the presidency, rather than more cynical and more cautious and more programmed, as most politicians do as they acquire more power." Newfield speaks with some of Kennedy's children, who read notes their father wrote to them on historic occasions such as the desegregation of the University of Alabama and the day JFK was buried. They're like treasured time capsules to the recipients. Newfield said he was surprised when historian Doris Kearns Goodwin told him that in a late-night conversation, Kennedy revealed he was convinced that organized crime murdered his brother. In one poignant moment, former Sen. George McGovern talks of how vulnerable, even small, Kennedy appeared physically the last time he saw him, standing on an airport tarmac. Remembering the moment, McGovern's eyes glisten and his voice cracks. He waves off the camera, explaining he must be getting tired. Other television outlets are using the anniversary of RFK's assassination for features. MSNBC is running a two-part "Time & Again" special on RFK's assassination Thursday and Friday with Jane Pauley. Birthday Baby: You will always attract a lot of attention. You are outgoing, eager to please and usually the center of attention. You will be forever asking questions and in turn learning and expanding your horizons throughout life. _ __________ THURSDAY EVENING 6/4/98 BROADCAST CHANNELS 6:00 I 6:30 I 7:00 I 7:30 1 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00110:30111:00 Ways to overcome the planning stress By Dr. JOYCE GERDIS KARP For AP Special Features Your wedding day is a glorious time: a day of -hope and promise. Yet while some people thrive on the countless details so typical of planning a wedding, others are overwhelmed by the enormity of the project. Fortunately, couples can take action to help minimize the difficulties of this joyous but sometimes stressful period. Consider the wisdom of common-sense approaches. Get organized by obtaining wedding tips from friends, relatives, publications, the ' Internet or professional consultants. However, don't be afraid to follow your own instincts, even ' if they run counter to advice offered. Work with your own unique style. If you are creative, incor- . porate that into the mix; if you are effective at delegating tasks, use that skill. Take steps to avoid being overwhelmed by •' wedding details. Break down large projects into smaller, more manageable components. Develop a timeline of tasks to be completed. Be sure to eat well, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. ; It is inevitable that certain challenges will arise while arranging a wedding. These may be financial pressures.'conflicts among family members, issues involving the incorporation of stepfamilies, or problems that arise when two families of different cultural or religious backgrounds are combined. Sometimes larger issues masquerade as smaller ones. Arguments over the wording of invitations really might be over the quality of the engaged couple's relationship. Procrastination might signify doubts about the impending marriage. Be aware of the potential for difficulties and do not hesitate to obtain professional counseling. Try to keep a healthy perspective while planning a wedding. Realize that the wedding-planning phase is a miniature version of the upcoming marriage, so view it as an opportunity to learn how to work through issues as a couple. View the mundane details of planning a wedding as part of a ritual that allows the reality of marriage to sink in over a period of time. And don't forget your sense of humor. Your wedding day is only one brief chapter in the story of a marriage. Dr. Joyce Gerdis Karp is clinical instructor of psychiatry at New York University School of Medicine in New York City.
