THE LEARNING CHALLENGER by Robert Bamett DIRECTIONS: A. Using each "Chaos Grid" number with its letter one time, arrange the numbers with their letters for the "Order Grid" so each vertical column, horizontal row, and two diagonals each ADD to numbers inside thick lined cells. B. Some correct numbers with their letters have been put into the "Order Grid" to get you started. Also, above the "Order Grid" is a "Decoded Message" clue. C. After you have solved the "Order Grid" doing as direction "A" says, put the letters from horizontal rows, from left to right, under "Decoded Message" and make words to form the answer.

Within the first two years, it became obvious that "Lara" had a problem with alcohol. After she got into some legal trouble because of it, she joined AA. We assumed she was attending meetings and things were relatively normal. Last week, we learned that Lara is drinking again, and .worse, she is driving the children while drunk. There also has been neglect, since Lara goes away for days when she's bingeing. I am trying to stay out of their business and keep my mouth shut, although I did tell my son we are aware of what's going on and that we are here for him if he needs us. My son informed his wife that we talked about her drinking, and now we have been pushed out of their lives. My son is an enabler and is in a serious state of denial. This dysfunctional behavior is now being taught to my grandchildren, and it sick- By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar ens me. What can I do? - Distraught Grandmother Dear Grandmother: Call Al-Anon. ( or check your phone book) and ask for help. Meanwhile, do whatever you need to in order to get back in your son's good graces so you can keep an eye on the situation. If you see Lara driving drunk or know that she has left the children unattended, call the police. Some people need to be hit over the head before they will get the help they need. Dear Annie: I have a friend, "Jane," and we are both in middle school. When Jane and I are together at my house or hers, she is very nice TUESDAY EVENING 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 11:00 and polite. The problem is, when we are at school, Jane pushes me, shoves me, calls me names and so on. I have no idea why. One of my other friends said she wants to see me fall and get hurt. Please give me some advice here. Confused in California Dear Confused: Jane sounds like a troubled young woman. She may be jealous of your other friendships at school, or she may believe that ridiculing you in front of others will make her more popular. This is not a true friendship. Tell Jane that you will no longer tolerate her unkind behavior. If she pushes you or calls you names, walk away and don't look back. Also suggest to Jane that she speak to the school counselor about her hostility and how to manage it. Then tell your parents about her bullying behavior in case it needs to be reported. Dear Annie: I am finally writing this letter after being stuck numerous times with other people's bar bills. My husband and I don't drink, but when we go out with friends who do imbibe, we end up paying half of whatever alcohol they drink. We recently went out with a couple that drank over $150 worth of alcohol, and when the check came, I heard the husband tell the waiter to split it in half. When we have asked for separate checks, the waiter has given us a dirty look. The times we've pointed out to our friends that we didn't have anything to drink, one couple called us "cheap." We have declined dinner invitations with couples we know are heavy drinkers. I know we can't be alone in this uncomfortable situation, so please print this so the drinkers will see themselves. - Tired of Paying in Virginia Beach, Va. Dear Virginia: These are friends? No true friend would expect a non-drinker to pay half of the bar bill. In spite of the dirty looks, ask the waiter for separate checks, saying to your friends, "Since we don't drink, I'm sure you will want to pay for the liquor."
