C8 TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 2001 By Joyce Jillson Creators Syndicate Inc. • ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not feel like exerting yourself as much as you had planned.

Strange offers require unique decisions. • CANCER (June 22-July 22). Romance wins over your practical side. Ideas, creative input and proposals will come flooding in this afternoon.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Mark Santana ruled the state Attorney General's Office rightfully seized Gravano's $380,000 in assets because proceeds from the book "resulted from criminal activity that violates Arizona's racketeering ^„.„..,^ laws." GRAVANO Gravano, the former mob hitman known as "Sammy the Bull," is in jail awaiting trial on drug charges. Santana's written opinion says prosecutors did not violate Gravano's right to free speech or his right to retain legal counsel by seizing the book assets. Author Peter Maas interviewed Gravano dozens of times for the best seller "Underboss: Sammy the Bull Gravano's Story of Life in the Mafia." Jackson's agenda: health, wages ATLANTA — In the old South, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, the races were divided by law. Today, he believes they are divided by access to health care, education, technology, political clout and a living wage. In Georgia for a seven-day tour of 25 cities, Jackson said Sunday he wants to take up "the unfinished agenda of the New South." "The image being reinforced is Atlanta, Coca Cola and CNN," he said. "But beyond that, 60 percent of aU Georgians earn $25,000 a year or less. Two million have no health insurance." "People across racial lines can rally for better health care and living wages," he said. "The New South challenge of today is to close the resource gap. We've already shown we can play ball together" Cowboy picked to win 'Survivor' LAS VEGAS — Oddsmakers have installed Texas cowboy Colby Donaldson as the favorite to win the $1 million grand prize on the CBS reality-based series "Survivor" Donaldson is the 3-2 favorite at the Stardust hotel-casino and the 2-1 favorite at the Bally's and Paris hotel-casinos. "Colby has won many immunities and he looks like the strongest," said Joe Lupo, manager at the Strip resort's race and sports book. Tina Wesson is Lupo's second favorite at 2-1, while Keith Famie is at 3-1 followed by Elisabeth Filarski at 5-1. The odds are only hypothetical because state law prohibits wagers on events in which the outcome already is known, and CBS, unlike the odd­ smakers, knows how this contest ends. The winning survivor will be revealed in a two-hour finale May 3. JACKSON It's time to take action against voting fraud Dear Ann Landers: I read with interest the letter from the California woman whose husband filled out an absentee ballot for his senile mother Some years ago, I was an employee for the county Every election, the committeewomen for one of the political parties would go to all the nursing homes in town to "get out the vote." In many cases, this meant holding the hand of a resident and making a mark or signing that person's name. Most of these individuals had no idea what they were doing. Many were senile or worse. Not one of the nursing home administrators ever questioned this despicable practice. They even cheered when one comatose patient, known to be a member of ANN LANDERS the other party, "voted" for his opponent. I'm ashamed to say I did nothing about this skullduggery because I needed my job. These committeewomen were upstanding pillars of the community and considered themselves to be honest people. They also believed it was their duty to do whatever was necessary to defeat the other party When I saw one of these women the other day, I asked her if she was still overseeing the nursing home vote. She said, "Of course! Voting is about all these old folks can do for their country and we make sure they vote the right way." How do you like that, Ann? — Observing Life in the Heartland Dear Heart: Talk about taking advantage of unfortunate people — this practice is the bottom of the barrel. A representative from both parties should be stationed at these nursing homes to monitor the voting process. Here is a "cause" you can do something about. Hop to it. Be a hero. And now, the last word on the subject, I promise: Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about the California woman whose husband registered his 80-year-old mother to vote, even though she had Alzheimer's. He completed an absentee baUot for her, which means he voted twice. You were right to condemn the man's behavior as reprehensible, but it was also illegal, possibly violating California Elections code 18560 and Penal code 118, both felonies. The secretary of state is charged with administering election laws in California. I am the supervisor of the Election Fraud Investigations unit, and our mission is fraud-free elections and zero tolerance for election fraud. Please consider this a formal request for any and all information available on the identity and location of the letter- writer whose husband may have violated California election law. We fully intend on opening a criminal investigation into this matter. Thank you for your assistance. — Richard Ciaramella, Supervising Investigator, Election Fraud Investigations Unit, Sacramento, Calif. Dear Richard Ciaramella: Thank you for the information on the election law in California. I respect your mission, but under no circumstances would I consider revealing the identity of a person who wrote to me. A great deal of my mail arrives without a name or address, but had the writer told me her husband's name, I still would not give that information out. If my correspondent violated the law, I am sorry but my first loyalty is to my readers who place their confidence in me. If that reader's husband did something illegal, you will have to find him on your own. Write to Ann Landers at P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, IL 60611.
