THURSDAY, OCT. 1,1992 THE NEWS JOURNAL B 4A Timberlake lists his seven secrets to success RISING SUN, Md. If every-body was born to win, as Lewis Timberlake told a Rising Sun High School audience Wednesday, why don't they? Timberlake, a native of Stamford, Texas, listed four main reasons people fail: They expect to fail. They blame others for their bad breaks: They let fear control their lives instead of letting faith control their lives. And they have no written goal for their lives. "I've never had someone come to me and say, 'I'm a self-made failure,'" said Timberlake, who has spoken to hundreds of corporations as a visiting lecturer. "We're always blaming God, our spouse or our leaders." Timberlake outlined seven secrets of success: Quit feeling sorry for yourself. Eliminate self-pity. Write down a specific goal for your life. Public Works votes 'budget cuts Associated Press ANNAPOLIS - The Board of Public Works voted Wednesday to cut state spending by about $240 million to keep the Maryland budget balanced. "There is no easy way to do this. It is with great difficulty that we make our decision," said Gov. William Donald Schaefer. The decision for Schaefer, Treasurer Lucille Maurer and Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein was made more difficult by the wrenching testimony presented by handicapped people fearful that they will lose state services that allow them to lead independent lives. Speaking from her wheelchair in a soft voice scarcely audible in the hushed governor's reception room, Lori Peters told the board that a personal care attendant paid by the state made it possible for her to move into a group home after 20 years in a nursing home. "I do not want to go back to a nursing home. I like to be out on my own," she said. At Maurer's suggestion, the board voted to restore $5 million for the transportation program and personal attendants who cook, clean, shop and take care of the severely handicapped. But that is only about one-fourth of the money that was available before the budget cuts. Nelson Sabatini, state health secretary, said there is no guarantee that help will be available for Peters or other handicapped people who might wind up in nursing homes or state institutions with Key testimony in slaying trial gets contradicted By CAROLYN LEWIS Sussex Bureau reporter GEORGETOWN Did Walter W. Cannon bludgeon his stepfather to death on Sept. 14, 1991? Or did the 33-year-old Ellendale man drive away from Walter Smith's Milford house before the hour when police say Smith was killed? A witness Wednesday in Cannon's first-degree murder trial contradicted a Monday witness who said he saw Cannon's car leave the Columbia street house well before the hour Smith was killed. " Troy Terry had said he saw Cannon's car go around the corner and his friend Darrell Bailey, saw it, too. But Bailey said Wednesday he never saw the car and never discussed Cannon with Terry that day. Smith, 52, a Milford bootlegger, was found beaten to death in his home the evening of Sept. 14. Wit Senate OKs bill to By BETH MILLER Cecil Bureau reporter WASHINGTON New fire and police facilities for Aberdeen Proving Ground were included in the final version of the Military Construction Appropriations Bill, approved Wednesday by the Senate.

Timberlake's suggestions: Put the alarm clock across the room and get up promptly in the morning. The first 18-37 minutes of each day set the tone for the rest of the day, he said. Sing in the shower. "We do not sing because we're happy," Timberlake said. "We're happy because we sing." Read inspirational material before listening to the morning news or reading a newspaper. Be careful who you spend time with. "You can't fly like eagles if out personal care. But he hopes local governments and volunteer organizati6ns will pick up part of the burden and that the limited state money can be used to supplement their services. The cuts approved by the board are part of a $450 million plan proposed by the governor to offset the loss of state revenues brought about by the recession. A new lottery game and increases in fees will produce almost $59 million in new revenues. The remaining $150 million will be made up by cutting state aid to local governments. Only the legislature has the power to cut local aid, and the board asked lawmakers to approve that reduction despite the objections of county officials. The $240 million reduction in state spending will affect every agency. It will cause layoffs of about 480 employees and elimination of almost 900 vacant state government jobs. There will be less spraying for mosquitoes and gypsy moths, fewer trees planted, elimination of services in state parks. Grants to welfare recipients will be reduced from $381 a month for a family of four to $359, the same amount paid in 1988. A hiring freeze will prohibit state police from filling 140 vacancies. The University of Maryland will lose $19 million in aid, resulting in tuition surcharges in the spring ranging from 3 percent to 7 percent. State aid to local health departments will be cut by $11.6 million. nesses said Smith kept large sums of money on the premises, and police reported signs that some money was stolen. Police arrested Cannon after he told conflicting stories, Deputy Attorney General John R. Garey told the Superior Court jury. Garey played a portion of an interview taped by Milford police the night Smith's body was discovered. Cannon told police he last saw his stepfather about 11:15 a.m. when he drove Smith to a store in Milford and left him there. He also said he changed his clothes later that day and left the clothes at his mother's house. Judge William Swain Lee recessed the trial before the complete tape could be heard. One juror had to attend a funeral and Judge Lee had promised her he would recess early. The trial is to resume Monday at the Sussex County Courthouse. aid Aberdeen ple and facilities of this important installation," said Sen. Paul Sar-banes, D-Md. Police and fire facilities will be joined in a $3.4 million emergency services center. It will replace the existing fire station, which dates to the 1920s, and the provost marshal's office, which was built as a temporary facility in the 1940s. "It is very important to all the people of Maryland that Aberdeen Proving Ground remain one of our nation's modern and efficient military bases," Sarbanes said. ture guest speaker Larry Johnson, Magic Johnson s brother, who founded "Brotherhood Against Drugs," an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program in Lansing, Mich.

The woman's jaw and right leg were fractured and she had a severe head injury from an apparent hit and run accident. She was carrying only a tube of lipstick and a comb. "I'm on cloud nine," said Hermann Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Fuglaar. "I've felt all along that Estelle, or rather Nancy, knew what was going on around her. I think she's very relieved that we will no longer call her Estelle." The case was featured Sept. 16 on NBC's "Unsolved Mysteries" program. A jailer at the Easton, Md., city jail recognized the woman as a former inmate who lived in the city, Fuglaar said. McDonald has been staying in an area nursing home since she was transferred from the hospital in July. She remains incommunicative. But Janine Medley, McDonald's court-appointed guardian, said the woman nodded when asked if Nancy Sue McDonald was her name and nodded again when asked if she was from Maryland. Medley said she spoke to the woman's stepmother Tuesday, but the family hasn't decided when they will pick up McDonald. o up for their low tax bases.
