THE SAUNA JOURNAL Almanac TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 1997 BB JOYCE JILLSON ( rentors Kvndlcatt Inc. HOROSCOPES • ARIES (March 21-April 19). Reconsider what you really want from your career. A turning point is coming, and preparation will allow you to make the most productive decision. Surprise -- you may be falling madly in love again. • TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your intelligence and honesty will impress those who matter. But who impresses you? It's important to have role models and supportive partners. Why not join an environmental group? Addictions have solutions. • GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Letters and other written items get enthusiastic responses. Blocks melt away when you explore your psyche. Show love for a mate more obviously. A relative comes to you for help. Make time for relaxation and music. • CANCER (June 22-July 22). Self-exploration and analysis is important, but find time to play, too. Thinking too much could stop you from doing more. Use imagination and intuition in your love life. Likely loves are Capricorn and Taurus. ^ • LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your ambition and confidence are magnetic, but hard work is still what gets you from point A to point B. If you delegate too much, the fun and challenge leave you, too. Even doing your own cleaning can be enlightening. • TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 29). Stay focused on your work - you'll benefit from it. Moving projects to new surroundings increases their chances for success. Your comfort factor will determine deals made this summer. The more you accommodate others, the richer you will be. An old flame will try to win you back in September, but by then, you'll probably be happy with a Pisces or Libra. • VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Long-awaited money is on its way. Keep plugging away in the present, and let bygones be just that. Intellectuals you meet intimidate you at first, but believe in your ability. A sweetheart deeply appreciates your generosity. • LIBRA (Sept. 23- Oct. 23). Lawsuits and other arbitrations find you triumphant. Because your heart Is pure, the result can only benefit everyone involved. Loved ones need more consideration and less activity. Watch that credit-card spending. • SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Tenacity and creativity are among your arsenal of luck attractors. As expected, the object of your desires will soon call you - so sit back and be appealing. Your devotion to your family will be an example for siblings. • SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Optimism in business is justified. Impressive money gains go to the worker who is in love with the work. Why not take on a new charitable cause? Shaking up the routine is what brings inspiration. • CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Friends are loyal. Business contacts observe your lifestyle. Commitment is finally secured from those formerly with cold feet. Relatives support your educational and financial ventures. Spending time with a Taurus is lucky. • AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be bold in the pursuit of power. Consult the yellow pages -- fresh ideas help you out of a bind. Generosity is the water that feeds the seeds of love. Sympathy for a complaining friend doesn't have to be followed by a solution. • PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You can work your way out of a sticky situation so don't give up hope. Take advantage of the buzz you create by joining a new social group. Friends return for more of your hospitality. Make exceptions to senseless rules.

The chairman of Microsoft donated $2 million in cash and software to the civil rights group Focus:HOPE and the Detroit Public Library. "There is one idea behind all of this and that is to really empower people to use the Internet and to use the PC," said Gates, who toured the library's downtown branch Monday. Most of the grant, $1.5 million in software, will go to Focus:HOPE, which was formed in the wake of the Detroit riots of the 1960s. It has a technology center that trains people in engineering. The rest will go to the library. Pop band shakes up Maoris WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The Spice Girls have made New Zealand's Maoris red hot by doing a war dance that only men are supposed to perform. The five-member British pop group twice danced the haka during a visit to Bali, Indonesia, last week after two New Zealand rugby players offered to show them how. "It is totally inappropriate," said Joe Harawira, a member of Urban Maorian Authorities. "It is not acceptable in our culture, and especially by girlie pop stars from another culture." Spice Girls record manager Bart Cools said the artists did not mean to mock •Maori culture and were only following the rugby players, who didn't explain the significance of the dance. Graf bouncing back to action BERLIN — While her top competitor sits out with a knee injury, Steffi Graf is ready to resume playing tennis. Graf, out three months with a tendon infection in her left knee, will play in a tournament in.Berlin in mid- May, tournament director Eberhard Wensky said Monday. Graf, 27, missed several events after withdrawing from the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo on Feb. 2. She was supposed to compete in Tokyo against 16- year-old Martina Hingis in the final. Hingis, who overtook Graf as the world's No. 1 player on March 30, won't play in Berlin. She is out with an injury after a horse-riding spill a week ago but hopes to be fit for the French Open starting May 26. From Wire Service Reports GRAF T ADVICE Reader urges taking a tough approach to addicts Dear Ann Landers: Please give me a chance to warn those who think they are helping an addict when they say, "Don't do it!" It * r- will only encourage the addict to hide his addiction. If you want to help addicts, don't lend them money, wash their clothes, dry their tears, write them letters or invite them into your home. Don't let them use your phone, your car, your shower or your bed. Don't listen to or advise them or give them articles to read. Don't think you can be their best friend. Only a professional can help them. What you think is "help" may only make them worse. Addicts are master manipulators, more seductive than the drugs they're hooked on, and their ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. word (with a hand on the Bible) doesn't mean a thing. They have no conscience. If their lips are moving, they are lying. I have learned a lot from attending more than 40 Al-Anon and Nar-Anon meetings in five cities. The faces are different, but the stories are the same. The more you involve yourself with addicts, the more misery and devastation you will suffer, and you won't help the addicts one damn bit. You need Al-Anon or Nar- Anon. I know because I have — Been There and Done That in Clayton, Calif. Dear Been There: The authorities in the field of drug abuse agree with your tough approach. It's awfully hard, however, to stand by and watch someone you care about destroy himself or herself and not try to help. That's why programs such as Al-Anon and Nar-Anon, for families and friends of addicts, are so important — and they're in the phonebook. Dear Ann Landers: I am writing in re- Til TONIGHT sponse to the letter from the mother of triplets and a 6-month-old who was sick and tired of rude comments from strangers. Relentless commentary is a problem for all women. If a woman has no children, she hears, "When are you having kids? Why aren't you having any? I can't imagine life without mine." If a woman has one child, she hears, "When are you going to have a little brother or sister for your baby? You don't want her to be lonely, do you?" If a woman has several children close in age, she gets remarks about her overly active sex life, her husband's hormonal output or pity for her domestic workload. In other words, women can't win. People who are asked personal questions by insensitive clods need never feel obligated to respond. Your long-ago line, "Why would YOU be interested in THAT?" is the perfect rejoinder. — Denver Dear Denver: Thanks for suggesting that one of the basic Ann Landers re^ sponses be invoked when ignoramuses ask nun-uv-yer-bizzness-type questions. You are absolutely right. Dear Ann Landers: Here's a suggestion for that healthy co-worker who complained about people coming to work with colds, flu and strep throat, even though the company has sick-leave benefits. Keep a surgical mask in the desk drawer, and when a "sickie" comes to work, put it on. Urge your co-workers to do the same. As an added bonus, have a can of anti-bacterial spray handy, and be sure to use it conspicuously on every surface the "sickie" touches. Even a dim-witted idiot will get the message. — Bob in Dallas Dear Bob: Beautiful. If anyone reads this and tries it, let me know if it worked. Gem of the Day: A lot of people are already working a four-day week. The problem is, it takes them five days to do it. 4/29/97 0 PBS, Bunker Hill-Hays El NBC, Wichita QFOX, WIchlta-Sallna OCBS, Topeka El Access 6, Sallna O FOX, Kansas City SI PBS, Wlchlta-Hutchlnson QABC, Kansas City fi3 ABC, Wichita f9 CBS, Wichita fQ NBC, Kansas City ffi| Encore B3WTBS IQcinemax D3starzl EDHBO 03 Discovery 60 CNN Q3i/x tQAiner.
