,3nMana (JSaeette ET CETERA Saturday, September 20, 2003 - Page 11 Abby By Abigail Van Buren Americana music awards By The Associated Press , DEAR ABBY: At my office, many employees participate in fund-raisers for church groups or schools. These fund-raisers involve buying items such as wrapping paper, chocolate bars, etc. I usually buy "whatever" because it's for a good cause. [One of my co-workers, "•Robin," frequently asks the rest df us to chip in to raise money for her daughter's school. However, Robin recently admitted to me privately that the money she's collecting is actually for herself. She justified her actions by saying the funds are for a "worthy cause" — HER TRIP TO PARIS. ^Should I tell my co-workers a^bout Robin's scam, or report her tb the companies providing the products she's selling for "charity"? I am disgusted by her deceit and her inability to see anything wrong with what she's doing. — SICK ABOUT IT IN ST. LOUIS DEAR SICK ABOUT IT: By all means, speak up and tell your co-workers about her scheme. Robin's lack of ethics is appalling — and may even be criminal. To remain silent makes you an accessory, so don't wait. Do it now. DEAR ABBY: Two months ago, I tpld a boy at school I'll call Aaron that I've been infatuated with him. We are both 13. Aaron and I have been dating ever since my "confession," and I've been very happy with him until recently. Lately, I can't, stand him — and I don't know why. I dread his phone calls, and I'm always trying to think up excuses not to see Him. «Aaron has told me that I'm his \yhole world and he would kill himself if he ever "lost" me. This i§> my first relationship with a boy, and I don't know what to do. ; Abby, please help. I want to end this thing with him, but I'm afraid of what he might do. — SCARED AND WORRIED SICK IN KANSAS CITY , DEAR SCARED AND WORRIED: What Aaron is doing is emotional blackmail. On some level, he senses that you are losing interest and he is trying to make you responsible for his welfare. Now is the time to tell your parents or another trusted adult exactly what is going on. Aaron's family should be informed about his self-destructive threats. Please don't delay. ' In the future, don't be so quick to tie yourself to one person. Now is the time you should be enjoying activities with groups of friends. ijpEAR ABBY: I was recently hired at a company that seems to be way out of my league. When I walked in, I saw young, beautiful, thin, well-bred, middle-class folks everywhere. I am none of those things. (Well, I am young.) How does a person from one class work with another class without being noticed? By that I mean, how do I hide the fact that V don't fit in? — FEELS LIKE A FRAUD IN FLORIDA DEAR FEELS LIKE A FRAUD: Stop putting yourself down and anticipating problems that may never happen. If someone didn't .think you'd fit in, you would not have been hired by your employer. Do your job well and you v^ill be respected. Be friendly and reach out and you will make friends. .Ifs not what you look like or where' you are from, it's what you have to offer that makes you a valued employee.

JOHNNY CASH ... AMA award winner ... Spirit of Americana Free Speech Award, presented by the First Amendment Center along with the AMA, Kristofferson, who also wrote "Me and Bobby McGee," is a LOS ANGELES — A judge dismissed two parts of pop star Michael . Jackson's lawsuit against Universal Music Group, that claims the world's largest record company owes him royalties for the rerelease of songs he made in the 1970s. . The lawsuit, filed in May, accuses Universal of violating a 1980 agreement to pay Jackson royalties from recordings he made with the Jackson 5 and as a solo artist from 1969 to 1976 for Motown Records, which was acquired by the company. On Friday, Judge Emilie Elias tossed out Jackson's claim that Universal had a fiduciary duty to make sure he received the best financial deal possible. She also dismissed his conversion claim, which argued that Universal had improperly used the music in licensing. Eight of Jackson's claims remain in the lawsuit, including breach of contract. Universal's attorney declined to comment. Jackson's lawyer, Brian Wolf, said he is considering filing an appeal about the fiduciary duty claim and plans to amend the conversion claim and present it again to the court.'
