THE SALINA JOURNAL Almanac FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1996 B3 JOYCE JILLSON Creators Syndicate Inc. HOROSCOPES • ARIES (March 21-April 19). Now is your chance to get in on the ground level. Others are not playing by the rules, so protect yourself by getting agreements in writing. Rumors are unreliable. Trips are necessary to cement a business venture. • TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are no guarantees, unless you live by your word. Don't sacrifice respect for instant, short-lived profits. Controlling another's life is impossible, so step away from conflicts and let things be. • GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Prepare ahead of time for difficult meetings. By doing homework, you get a coveted job or grant. In-laws undermine your position. Luck on a financial deal comes through superiors or authorities. Virgos and Pisces assist you. • CANCER (June 22-July 22). Love lifts you up. Family reunions heal old wounds. Visit A a friend who needs you desperately. Business seminars provide you with top- ranked contacts. Make vacation plans early and you'll end up saving money. • LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A unique romance will succeed. Play detective as new information puts you in a position of influence. Your boss is particularly energetic when you get the ball rolling on a company project or fundraiser. •, TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (October 11). You are more of a romantic than you think. You'll find yourself swept into love in the next three months. Money matters spring to the forefront in November. Partnerships solve business problems. Scorpios and Virgos offer help. Taurus is lucky in love, especially in the new year. Trial separations give you the emotional commitments you want. Travel in July. Consider a new career by April. • VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not too late to change your mind. Your lover is suggesting you try new ways of communicating. A work-related event is a spot for the discovery of a new artistic talent. A family member seeks advice. • LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Get out of town for the weekend. Luck comes from new environments. You've expected too much from a child or young relative. Mix business associates and family. You are literally saved by the bell. • SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is a reason why a friendship has cooled. Ask pointed questions. Romance is enchanting with a Leo. Make sure a new love is really single. A sudden trip revitalizes an old love or a faded one. • SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Deo. 21). Energy and dynamic magnetism are yours. Remain persistent, even when others lose faith. Projects need more preparation. Use intelligence to get a former love to return. Soothe his or her worries. • AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A complicated relationship issue arises but is really only a sign that things are getting more serious. A lonely friend is sincere but very manipulative. Express your artistry with neighbors and jobs will open up. • PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Higher-ups give the go ahead for a project you will head. Legal jargon should be looked over carefully by a professional. Respond to letters quickly, as time is of the essence. Openly discuss problems.

"If I live 10 years, it's a miracle," the falsetto-voiced entertainer said. The singer, whose real name is Herbert Khaury, had a heart attack Sept. 28. Twain may have hurt wetlands RAY BROOK, N.Y. — For country star Shania Twain, nothing could be more natural than making music in the mountains. But officials are investigating whether wetlands were destroyed to build her studio in the Adirondack Mountains and whether it is in tune with local zoning restrictions. Twain and her husband-producer, Robert "Mutt" Lange, claim their studio is being TWAIN used for artisan's activity, which would exempt it from the need for a permit. "What do you do there? That's what we're trying to find out," said William Curran of the Adirondack Park Agency, the local zoning authority. Reeves wows 'em in court JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Keanu Reeves' latest excellent adventure took him to Duval County Cougthouse to watch an armed robbery trial. The star of "Speed" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"'sat in court and studied the lawyers in preparation for his upcoming role in the movie "Devil's Advocate." "There was a noted and substantial increase in the female audience," said Circuit Judge Brad Stetson, "specifically, employees of the courthouse who don't normally grace my court with their presence."

Con artists who tout weight loss don't fool readers Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about the letter from a woman who signed herself "Aiming for a Size 10 in New York." The writer $ said she had received an advertisement for a weight-loss program clipped out of a newspaper, in a plain envelope, with no signature and no return address. Scribbled across the clipping was the message, "Mary, try it. It works." She was terribly hurt that some so- called friend would send this to her. I, too, received a similar clipping in the mail and couldn't figure out who among my friends would be so crude. I looked at the envelope and saw that it was mailed from San Diego. I don't know a soul in San Diego. To add to the "mystery," I have ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. never enrolled in a weight-loss program nor have I ever taken diet pills. Ann, please tell "Mary" she had been targeted by some con artists. She'll feel relieved. — One Who Didn't Bite in Springfield, Mass. Dear One: I'm glad you didn't bite. Neither did several hundred other readers. Keep reading for more on this slickly contrived gimmick. From Memphis, Tenn.: I am 5 feet 6 inches tall and weigh 104 pounds. For years, I've been trying to put on weight. I eat ice cream, drink malteds daily and slather butter on my mashed potatoes. Nothing works. Imagine my surprise when I received a handwritten note attached to a newspaper clipping describing a weight-loss program. The following day, a neighbor of mine received the identical mailing from an "anonymous friend." Looks like a racket to me. Spokane, Wash.: I, too, received an advertisement for a weight-loss program TV TONIGHT "clipped" from a newspaper. On it was written, "Shelley, try it. It works." It was mailed from Santa Ana, Calif. I was baffled. Then, I suddenly remembered that years ago I foolishly sent for a so-called thigh-reducing cream. I now know that once you get on "a list," you never can get off. Torrance, Calif.: "Personalized" direct mailings that call people by their first names are the newest gimmick. I have received such letters trying to sell me vitamins, youth potions, fat burners, sex energizers, just name it. They should be outlawed. Traverse City, Mich.: Anyone who has ever signed on to a weight-loss organization or sent for information about a weight-loss product gets on a list. Those lists are sold. Once you're on it, it's for keeps. Gary, Ind.: The newest weight-loss gimmick is a "new discovery from Asia." You can eat anything you want (drink alcohol, too). It's a cream that has a secret ingre- dient that prevents fat from building up, whatever that means. I'll bet your correspondent got one of these clippings in the mail, too. I did. . Louisville, Ky.: I was approached by a man at our state fair to register for a free vacation. Guess who sponsored it? You're right -the weight-loss program. I'm sure I'll be getting one of those clippings in the mail any day now. Florence, S.C.: That so-called newspaper ad didn't come from a newspaper. I received one and looked at the back. There was no sign of origin. Norfolk, Va.: I am 81 years old and a size 10. Over the last three years, I have received four of these things saying, "Agnes, try this." Dear Readers: You have just seen a small sampling of what I have been receiving for several days. I hope I have opened a few million eyes today — and put a serious kink in what appears to be a very slick bit of misleading promotion.
