In the last nine months, she has tost 145 pounds! (She weighed 260, but now she weighs about 115.) She doesn't need to lose any more weight, but she wont stop. Ail she will eat is a half-cup of rice and a hatap of steamed broccoli once a day! She takes a daily prenatal vitamin (although she isn't pregnant). She stopped menstruating last fall. Her mood swings are so bad that she frequently bursts into tears. What are my legal rights in getting her professional help? What kind of help can I get her before she turns 18? AT MY WITS END DEAR WTTS END: Your daughter is a minor, so of course you have a right to seek help for her. After she turns 1 8, you should consult an attorney. Your daughter appears to suffer from anorexia nervosa, ft is urgent that she be evaluated by a doctor or therapist who specializes in eating disorders. Anorexia can be fatal so don't delay. You can obtain information and emotional support by contacting: The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders Inc. ANAD has 400 chapters nationwide, and overseas services.

Please include a long (business-size), self-addressed, stamped (55 cents) envelope. The organization's hotline is (708) 831-3438. DEAR ABBY: I own two beautiful boxer dogs. I named them Max and Shadow. A few weeks ago, I was walking my dogs when I noticed a man walking his rottweiler. I immediately crossed the street and shortened the leashes on both my dogs. At the moment we passed each other, this man's dog started to growl and bark at my dogs; then to my amazement, the man deliberately let his dog go. The dog jumped on Max and bit him severely on the chest How I got the two dogs separated, 111 never know, but the visit to the vet cost me $1 04. I Bm-Jfc J Abigail N VanBuren NPvO-w Do I have the right to ask the owner of the rottweiler to pay for Max's vet bill? And should I have called the police on that man for deliberately letting his dog go? My husband says "No" to calling the police. ELIZABETH N. IN TAMPA, FLA. DEAR ELIZABETH: I agree with your husband. You would have a difficult time proving that the owner of the rottweiler deliberately released his dog in order to attack your dog. However, the owner of the rottweiler should pay the vef s bill. DEAR ABBY: Just yesterday I buried my father. I feel so empty. If I never accomplish anything else in my life, I would like the world to know that, with a little practice, it's easy to say, "I love you." I realized during my dad's critical illness that sometimes it's very hard for people to say what's In their hearts. So I beg of you: Start today. Those three little words get easier every time you say them. A GRIEVING DAUGHTER, BETHEL PARK, PA DEAR DAUGHTER: My sympathy on the toss of your beloved father. Your letter carries an important message. Sometimes words that are the most difficult to say are the ones that the listener most needs to hear. Among the phrases that come to mind are: "I'm sorry," "I was wrong," and of course, "I love you." Send questions to Dear Abby, P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069. For personal reply, please enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Don Herald Today's declarer was the club mathematician. He could recite most probability percentages accurately up to two decimal places. Unfortunately, that's as far as his talents took him. He was often oblivious to actual events. Observe him in action in today's heart game. West took his three high diamonds and switched to the dub jack. South won his ace, drew trumps and then played the ace and another spade, hoping to win a finesse against West Wesfs discard deflated South's balloon and the unavoidable spade loser sent the game one down. South played the spade suit in strict accordance with the probability tables. In theory, his best chance was to find the spade queen in the West hand. However, it would have cost South nothing to gather more information about the entire deal. After trumps were drawn, West was known to have started with six diamonds, three hearts and at least one club. To give himself an almost complete picture of Wesfs hand, all South had to do was cash dummy's club king and ruff a club. After West follows suit, he is limited to no more than one spade and the winning play NORTH 4.KJ85 VQ72 963 K54 4-24-A WEST 10 863 A K Q J 7 4 J 109 EAST AQ 7 6 4 3 5 4 10 Q87 32 SOUTH AA92 AKJ 109 852 AS Vulnerable: Both Dealer South The bidding: South West North East IV 2 2 V Pass 4 V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead Diamond king becomes clear.

The fun of getting lots of attention is balanced by the need to think and act independently because you have goals and ideas. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sure, there's some pressure at home, and maybe you're seeing the financial picture through a gray cloud of discouragement but brighter, more confident days are just ahead!. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22).

Commissioner highlights growth 1 requirement, Fry said. "That's a difficult position because there are so many facets to the entertainment industry and the size of government isn't growing. And you don't have a lot of people to do that stuff with, so there are greater demands on those people," he said. Fortunately for Tennessee, the new film commissioner says her management philosophy is "inclusive and participatory. I believe in delegating and encouraging and supporting the people who work with me," she said. For instance, she touts staff member Gordon Caldwell's efforts to get a home page on the Internet for the film commission. Also, Blackburn said that if a major production chooses to film in Tennessee, she's eager to share the credit with whichever of the state's city film offices helped. Although she admits she's still learning details of Tennessee's massive entertainment industry, Blackburn discusses its potential with the zeal of an Amway dealer. Indeed, it's hard to tell where an interview ends and the Tennessee sales pitch begins. Talk to her for long and you'll be convinced you should move your entertainment company here, even if you dont have one. For those who take the bait and ask about Tennessee's growth opportunities, Blackburn is ready with a list of conditions like expanding markets here and abroad, the growth of the state's entertainment industry infrastructure, the lure of a business-friendly atmosphere, and details like the fact that 80 of the blues recordings produced in Memphis are sold in Europe. She has other plans and hopes, many of which pop up throughout a normal conversation. She'd love to lure a CD manufacturing plant to the corridor between Nashville and Memphis. She wants to commission a new economic impact study to update the one from 1989. This time she'd like to track capital investment, too. Blackburn plans for her office to coordinate some testimonial videos that can be sent to producers interested in shooting here. She wants a long-range marketing strategy; one new pitch to producers will be, "Tennessee: The Next-Best Place Just Got Better." She wants to tape a public service announcement to air in the state, telling the benefits that the r entertainment industry brings to Tennessee. The list goes on. Given Blackburn's relative lack of experience with the Hollywood film and TV system, there was grumbling months ago that, as with Blackburn's predecessor Dancy Jones, the state was appointing a relative novice to the post However, Blackburn has earned generally high marks from industry insiders so far. In fact, there's already worry that she may be a great film commissioner who leaves in a year or so to run for political office agaia Blackburn downplays the idea Still, she never says never. "I've made my commitment to be the best representative that I can be for this industry as long as the governor wants me," she said in a measured response punctuated with a smile. Blackburn's enthusiasm for the position is unmistakable. With Last Dance having just left town, she and her staff were just recovering from weeks of late-late-night shoots and non-stop logistics crises. She was asked if she's happy to have a respite. "I hope we never settle down," Blackburn said. "I hope we keep running. I still believe this is the best job in state government" YWCA benefit's success no mystery tery is supposed to be set in Havana, black tie or 1940s' Havana chic. Most people went for black tie, although there were a few Carmen Mirandas there, like Meryl Truett and Jo Buckley. Triumphs: The party was huge, 580 reservations. Sold out We heard they made $95,000 by the beginning of the evening, so that figure doesn't account for the silent auction, which was great Unfortunately, people didn't pay enough attention to it because it was tucked out of the way so auction items didn't go for as much as they should have. Glitches: There was no need to serve five courses. We loved the crab cakes and hated the soup course. Orkesta Mondo Pinguis is great to listen to, but terrible for dancing. It's impossible to shag to Latin music. Noted: Chuck Blackburn does the mystery every year, a series of questions whose answers are unscrambled to form a sentence. People correctly guessing the mystery handed in their names and one was drawn for a trip to Miami. Jill and Lee Denmark of Franklin were the winners. Carolyne Hadden is the prettiest six-months-pregnant woman we've seen in a while. Angelo Valenti hit a hole in one at Richland Country! Club. Quoted: "Now that I'm CEO of Shoney's, I've gotten so much grief," said Stephen Linn, who is not the new CEO of Shoney's. That guy is Lynn. That doesn't mean Stephen Linn has-nt gotten calls wanting to know what he plans to do about the salad bar.
