LIAM NEESON ... Actor... BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The new movie about the life and work of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey has received a thumbs- up from one of Kinsey's colleagues. Paul Gebhard, an 87-year-old who was a member of the late Dear Abby By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am divorced and my 5-year-old daughter, "Liza," just started kindergarten. Her father, "George," remarried two years ago to a woman I'll call Beth. Beth has a 6-year-old daughter. Now that Liza is going to "big school," Beth wants to come to all of Liza's parent- teacher functions with George (and in his place when he can't make it). George agrees with her. I don't want Beth there. I am Liza's mother. It would be one thing if I weren't around and my daughter needed a mother to come to these things. I appreciate Beth wanting to do it, but to have her there would make me uncomfortable. I don't want to hurt Beth's feelings, but as a mother she should understand. Am I wrong to feel this way? Should I approach them with this? Please advise — FEELING STEPPED ON IN N.C ; DEAR FEELING: Before saying anything, consider that Beth is showing a sincere interest in Liza's education. That is a plus if custody is shared. Every child should be as fortunate as your little girl that all of the adults in her life want to make sure she excels in school. Please think this through. Your daughter's welfare should come first, and in this case, three heads may be better man two. DEAR ABBY: My 80-year-old mother-in-law, "Verna," moved in with my wife and me sometime back. We thought it would be better for her than living so far away and alone. Her husband of many years died about 15 years ago, and she is still depressed. • The trouble is, Vema has be- Come reclusive. She hoards food in her room, rarely comes out and spends hours just talking to her dog. She also believes that we feel she's an intrusion in our lives. Abhy, my wife and I talked this over before Verna came, and we both acknowledged mat although it might be difficult, we could work through any problems. However, lately the problems have begun to include imaginary issues such as saying we won't permit her use of the telephone. (It never happened!) Is it time to seek professional help? — CONCERNED IN TEXAS DEAR CONCERNED: Yes. Any change in the behavior of a person your mother-in-law's age could signal a physical, mental or neurological problem. She should be evaluated by a doctor who specializes in geriatrics *— and while you're at it, the doctor should be told about her chronic depression and hoarding. One thing is certain: She won't get any better if you ignore the problem. DEAR ABBY: I am a 41-year-old gay man who has survived the AIDS virus for .almost 19 years. I recently had a'bad Health'scare" and realized there was so much I wanted to say to people. It occurred to me that I should write my own eulogy. I'm not sure if that's appropriate or just self-indulgent. I'd appreciate your thoughts. A positive attitude has been my strength. — "WATCH ME FLY" IN PALM SPRINGS DEAR "WATCH ME FLY": If youwouldlike to write your own eulogy, by all means do so. You won't be the first to do it, and it's a surefire way to assure your message gets across — especially if it's videotaped. P.S. 1 hope your "flight" is long delayed and you have many more good years in Palm Springs.

The new Guthrie, a $150 million Jean Nouvel-designed building on the Minneapolis riverfront, is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2005 and open in 2006. Ehlshlager said she is leaving the theater as construction is proceeding according to plans. "I have no concerns about the project whatsoever — everything is on budget and on schedule," she said. Ehlshlager, 33, has been with the Guthrie since 1999, when she came to the theater on a management fellowship. She was promoted to her current position after the yearlong fellowship.

Film director... the Roundabout Theatre. PODGORICA, Serbia-Montenegro — Sarajevo-born film director Emir Kusturica has won a slander lawsuit against a Montenegrin writer who accused him of supporting former Yugoslav President Slobodan attack Milosevic^ Andrej Nikolaidis, columnist for Montenegrin weekly Monitor, will pay $6,490 to Kusturica for calling the famed director a "media star of Milosevic's war machinery" in a May commentary. A court in the Montenegrin capital, Podgorica, ruled that Nikolaidis had slandered Kus- turica and damaged his reputation, the writer confirmed Saturday. Nikolaidis said he would appeal the ruling. Nikolaidis told The Associated Press that "it wasn't my writing that damaged Emir Kusturica's reputation — the director did it himself by the way he behaved during the Bosnian war." Kusturica left his native Bosnia before the outbreak of the 199295 ethnic war and took up self- imposed exile in neighboring Serbia, the dominant republic in then-Yugoslavia. Kusturica enjoyed support from Milosevic's government, which agreed to finance his work. 2960 Oakland Avenue Indiana, Pa Near Ruby Tuesday 424-349-0320 •Mon-Fri 9-9 •Sat. 8-9 •Sun. 9-5 Give Yourself the IPfR!
