,3ubiana ET CETERA Friday, September 19, 2003 — Page 13 Dear Abby By Abigail Van Buren ' DEAR ABBY: I just found out my 18-year-old daughter, "Lori raine," and I have drastically dif• ferent views regarding sex. ; Since her 18th birthday, Lori raine has had sex with three dif- j ferent men. She will meet them, I spend a day with them and have ! sex as part of the date. Lorraine J feels that sex is "no big deal," but ' I am heartsick. She is putting her \ health hi danger — and I don't ! think what she's doing is emo- l tionally healthy, either. Lorraine . says I wouldn't feel this way if she • were my son, but she's wrong. ', Don't young people today care ' about their physical and emo- ? tional health? How can I make ; her understand that it is impor- ; tant to have an emotional at- i tachment with someone before ; having sex? — WORRIED MOM . INWASHINGTON ; DEAR WORRIED MOM: Since 'your daughter appears to be • tuning out your important message, I recommend that you both attend some sex education . sessions so she can hear with a ' fresh ear what the concerns re; ally are. Planned Parenthood, • which is in your phone book, ' would be an excellent reference. While you're at it, contact the American Social Health Association (ASHA) and ask for some of . theur comprehensive materials on sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), which are rampant in our population. That way, even if your daughter is not willing to take your concerns to heart, she will at least know how to protect herself. Call: National Herpes Hotline: (919) 361-8488; National HPV Hotline: (919) 361-4848; and the CDC's National STD and AIDS Hotline: (800) 227-8922.

When we go out to eat, Don displays proper etiquette and table manners, with one exception: He holds his fork hi his fist like a young child and shovels food into his mouth. Friends have noticed this and commented to me about it. When I mentioned it to Don, it hurt his feelings. Is there a gentle way I can help my friend? — DON'S DINNER PAL IN ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. DEAR DINNER PAL: You have already helped your friend by telling him what people are saying. Now it's time for HIM to change his eating habit — or not. ROBERT DUVALL - ... Oscar-winning actor... Duvall t gets star on walk , By The Associated Press ;' LOS ANGELES — Robert Du- 'yall has one Oscar, four Golden globes and now— a slab of sidewalk. The star of "The Godfather" and "Tender Mercies" received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday. The ceremony took place in front of the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards. It's a privilege p eop | e for me to work ,as a professional 'actor. I am very proud of that, and I still got a lot in me before they start wiping away the drool," the 72-year-old Duvall, who won a best-actor Oscar for 1983's "Tender Mercies," told the jfrowd. Duvall co-stars with Michael Caine in the movie "Secondhand lions," about two curmudgeonly Texas brothers who agree to raise a nephew, played by Haley Joel Osmenf. He also recently appeared as a trail boss in "Open Range," as Gen. Robert E. Lee in "Gods and Generals" and as a dancing hit-man in "Assassination Tango," which he also wrote and directed. DEAR ABBY: Last Sunday in church, while my husband, "Johnny," and I were on our knees praying, the preacher's wife, "Selma," who was sitting behind us, leaned forward and began giving Johnny a back rub. It really upset me. We've been going to this church for only a few weeks, and I felt it didn't look right. Johnny says SeLma was just being nice. I feel that out of respect for me, he should have told her to go rub her husband's back instead of his. It made me mad that Johnny was standing up for her. I think this is how adultery starts. Am I wrong? — LOSING MY FAITH IN CENTRAL INDIANA DEAR LOSING MY FAITH: Not necessarily. However, it's clear that Selma rubbed someone — you—the wrong way. Next Sunday, make a point of sitting behind Selma. If she reaches for Johnny again, hit her with chapter and verse. "Thou shalt not covet..."

Fossett fails in bid WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — American adventurer Steve Fossett failed today in his latest bid to set the world glider altitude record in a flight over the snowcapped mountains of southern New Zealand. Fossett, 58, and former NASA test pilot Einar Enevoldson had hoped the mountain winds would lift their German-made glider above the current record of 49,009 feet Their flight to the north of New Zealand's highest peak, the 12,316-foot Mount Cook, stalled at about 25,000 feet "At that point they ran out of lift," Fossett's partner Mary Howard told The Associated Press. "It didn't look good enough to continue. The lift was too slow." The Chicago millionaire, the first person to fly a hot air balloon solo around the world, was planning another attempt at the gliding record early Saturday morning. Even before setting off today, he sounded pessimistic. "We don't know that it's really that good today, but that's what we're looking for," he told the AP by telephone. Fossett and Enevoldson were wearing space suits for the record attempt. Temperatures plunged to minus 34.6 Fahrenheit during the flight, Howard said.
