The Hutchinson County
Republican Women (HCRW)
will be hosting a county-wide
candidates forum to discuss
more than a dozen candi-
dates for area City govern-
ment positions, according to
HCRW representative Cyn-
thia Lagrone. The forum will
be held on Thursday, April 1
at 11:45 a.m. in the Gallery
Room at Frank Phillips Col-
lege.
HCRW candidates forums
are open to the public; and an
optional lunch will be served
by Great Western Dining at
FPC cafeteria, 2013 winner
of the Taste of Hutchinson
County’s Best Booth and
Best Food awards.
The meeting, said
LaGrone, will cover candi-
dates in races for City Coun-
cils in Borger, Stinnett, Fritch
and Sanford; and mayor and
aldermen in Fritch.
Two seats will be voted
on in Borger. Robert Vine-
yard is running unopposed to
keep his current council seat
but Mayor Jeff Brain will not
be seeking reelection. Brad
Carpenter and Karen Felker
are running against each oth-
er seeking to replace Brain
on Borger’s City Council.
The races in Fritch are
somewhat more contentious.
Fritch’s mayor will also not
be seeking reelection, but
four people are running for
that seat: Kelly Henderson,
Denise Campbell, Les Mill-
er, and Tom Ray.
Two aldermen will also
be selected in Fritch, and
six people are in the running
for those seats: Brooklyn
Bidwell, Yvonne Blackwell,
Arturo Gutierrez, Richard
Hein, Chad Hutson, and Jana
Sichick.
Sanford is also seeking
City Council members; three
seats are up for grabs and
six people: Terrie Bechtel,
Karen Packebursh, Miranda
Danford, Connie Robinson,
Donna Ormon, and Fern
Whipkey are seeking to fll
them.
Stinnett’s races are so far
uncontested. Three seats are
available but only three peo-
ple are seeking to fll them:
April Couch, Justin Hart, and
Jeff Irwin. However - Stin-
nett’s fling date for new can-
didates has been pushed back
to April 14, 2014, so those
races still have a chance at
developing.
For those seeking more
information about the forum,
information is available from
the HCRW at 274-6903 or
274-9389.
Voting will be May 10.

DEAR ABBY: My daugh-
ter is being married soon, and
I need some guidance about
inviting my aunt and uncle to
the wedding. They live about
30 miles from us. We moved
to this area four years ago,
and we’ve had them over for
dinner once and invited them
another time. They declined
because they were going to
be out of town.
Abby, they didn’t recipro-
cate, and in fact, didn’t even
invite us to their daughter’s
wedding, which hurt us very
much. I had always consid-
ered myself close to these
relatives before we moved
here, so their treatment of
my family and me has been
painful.
My mother is telling me to
turn the other cheek despite
everything and invite them to
my daughter’s wedding. My
daughter doesn’t want them
to attend and neither does
my husband, but Mom is em-
phatic about inviting them
“because they’re family.”
I would appreciate your
opinion on this, Abby, be-
cause I’m between a rock
and a hard place, and my
emotions are pulling me
apart. -- BETWIXT AND
BETWEEN
DEAR BETWIXT: The
bride’s wishes should pre-
vail. Her happiness on her
wedding day is more impor-
tant than the feelings of rela-
tives who don’t bother with
you, her and your family. I
have always said that one
should never invite guests to
a wedding hoping they won’t
show up, because they usu-
ally do.
DEAR ABBY: I’m an av-
erage 17-year-old guy. I love
basketball, football and girls.
The problem is I’m a player,
and girls say I “use” them.
I’m not ready to settle
down, and I end up hurt-
ing girls and breaking many
hearts. How can I cure my
player habits and heal some
of the hearts I’ve broken? --
TIRED OF PLAYING
DEAR TIRED OF PLAY-
ING: Apologize to any
young woman you have mis-
led. Then ask yourself, “How
would I feel if I had been treat-
ed this way?” If you practice
the Golden Rule -- “Do unto
others as you would have
them do unto you” -- it will
serve you well in most situ-
ations. If everyone did this,
we could change the name
of our planet from Earth to
Paradise, and wouldn’t that
be heavenly?
DEAR ABBY: I have an
older friend who is 70. She
doesn’t have much money.
She was having blood pres-
sure problems, so I ordered
a deluxe blood pressure ma-
chine for her that cost $160.
It wasn’t a birthday gift; I
was seriously concerned for
her.
I learned this week that
she “loaned” it to a friend.
I wrote her a note and asked
her nicely to please get it
back because I didn’t buy it
for her friend (who has plen-
ty of money), but because I
was worried about her health.
She is now not speaking to
me, and MY blood pressure
is going up by the minute be-
cause I’m so angry. Was I out
of line or is she? -- HYPER-
FURIOUS IN ARIZONA
DEAR HYPER-FURI-
OUS: Relax. Breathe. What
you did was a beautiful and
generous gesture, but the
blood pressure machine was
a GIFT. Once a gift is given,
it belongs to the recipient to
do with as she (or he) wishes.
For you to tell her to ask for
it back may have been well-
intentioned, but it was the
wrong thing to do.
CONFIDENTIAL TO
“STUCK IN DULLS-
VILLE”: Because you’re
convinced your job is a dead
end, start sending out re-
sumes. Jack London had this
to say about stagnating lives:
“I shall not waste my days in
trying to prolong time. I shall
use my time. ... The proper
function of man is to live, not
to exist.”

Your Column Here!
I went to a college re-
union and was excited to
see a former roommate
there. Beside him was a
beautiful lady, and behind
them trailed four cute chil-
dren.
I walked over to him
and punched him in the
arm. “They’ll let anybody
come to one of these things,
won’t they?”
He turned, and seeing
me, his eyes grew wide. Jed
punched me back. “I guess
they will, because you’re
here.”
I laughed and, as we
shared our delight in seeing
each other, our wives and
children came up beside
us. We did introductions,
and then my wife asked
them, “So how did you two
meet?”
Pamela, Jed’s wife,
smiled. “It’s a long story.”
At college, Pamela was
roommates with Jed’s cous-
in, Sally. It was the frst time
that the two girls had met,
but they hit it off immedi-
ately. They did everything
together, and soon became
close friends. As the year
went on, Sally realized that
since it was Pamela’s senior
year, she would be moving
on and it was unlikely that
their friendship would stay
as strong.
That was when she hit
on an plan. All she would
have to do is get Jed and
Pamela to marry, and then
she and Pamela could be
together at every family re-
union. She approached Jed
about asking Pamela out,
but he would have none
of it. He told her he didn’t
go out with girls he didn’t
know, and, besides, he had
heard horror stories about
people setting relatives up
blind dates.
She then talked to Pa-
mela about asking Jed over
for cookies or something.
“You are a great cook and
you would really like him,”
Sally said. But Pamela was
too shy and felt that would
be too forward. Sally threw
out some more ideas to
Jed and Pamela, but it was
just making things worse.
She even tried to get Jed to
come over and visit so she
could just happen to intro-
duce the two of them. But
Jed had grown wary of her
motives and always found
an excuse.
But then, one day, as she
was visiting with him, he
started coughing. “Are you
ill?” she asked.
“Oh, just a little bit of a
cold,” Jed answered. “Noth-
ing to worry about.”
But suddenly Sally had
an idea. As soon as she got
back to her apartment, she
waited until she knew that
Pamela was entering the
room, then she grabbed the
phone from the receiver.
“Oh, Mom, I’m so worried
about Jed,” she said into it.
“I wish I could make him
dinner or something to help
him feel better.” She then
went on, speaking into the
phone, explaining how Jed
was on death’s doorstep.
Pamela, who had a big
heart, couldn’t help but
overhear. She fnally felt
she had to join the conver-
sation. “I don’t see any rea-
son we couldn’t make him
dinner.”
Sally turned to her. “But
the way I cook, I might kill
him.”
“I could help,” Pamela
said.
“Oh, would you?” Sally
said, hanging up the phone
without thinking. Pamela
stared at it, and Sally real-
ized her mistake. “Oh, the
phone. Uh, Mom heard you,
and had to run, saying she’d
let us deal with it.”
Pamela trustingly be-
lieved her, and they set
about making dinner. Pa-
mela was an excellent cook
and made some homemade
bread. When it was done,
they heated up some chick-
en noodle soup from a can,
then headed out to deliver
it.
When they arrived, Jed
answered the door. Sally
was quick to tell him that
when Pamela heard he was
sick, she insisted on making
him some homemade bread
and soup. Although Pamela
was a bit confused, and Jed
was surprised by the atten-
tion, the smell of the hot
bread broke down his de-
fenses. He invited them in,
and Sally suggested there
was enough they could all
share. But just as they were
starting to eat, Sally sud-
denly remembered she had
a chemistry lab.
After she left, the si-
lence between Jed and Pa-
mela was awkward. But
then he cut into the bread,
and the aroma flled the
air. His compliment on it
warmed Pamela’s heart,
and soon they were talking
and laughing together as
they ate.
“And,” Jed laughed,
“later we learned that Sally
didn’t even have chem-
istry. But with great food
like that, I was hooked, and
she got her best friend as a
cousin.”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Your research skills
are fabulous today. You
instinctively will know where
to go to fnd answers and
solutions. (And you won’t give
up.)
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20)
You might attract a powerful
person to you today. Possibly,
you will play this role for
someone else. Whatever the
case, you will modify your
goals for the better.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Conversations with bosses,
parents, teachers, VIPs and
the police will be practical but
powerful today. You won’t
be able to hide anything. Be
honest, and get right to the facts.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
This is a wonderful day to
study something or learn how
something works because you
easily will see what goes on
behind the scenes. You might
learn a lot about politics and

and how to divide shared
property. You will be insightful
and will take care of your own

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Conversations with others

Sometimes it’s good to get your

Speak up with your ideas
about making improvements

doing, so why not offer a few
suggestions?

Mystery movies and books

things work. A surprise firtation
might catch you off-guard.

This is a good day to make
repairs to plumbing areas or
anything to do with laundry and

those of you who sell, market,
teach, edit, write, act or drive
for a living. You will be like
Darth Vader on steroids.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.
18)
You might see new uses for
something you already own.
Or you might see a new way to
earn money, or perhaps to make
a little money on the side.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Take a realistic look in
the mirror and ask yourself
what you can do to improve
your image. There’s always
something, because no one is
perfect.

future of Texas, it’s about
my kids and my grandkids.
It’s about what we do each
