Cancer gets romantically creative
FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 30
You find rainbows everywhere you turn. Difficult situations evaporate when you face them with a positive outlook. Angry loves and relatives calm down and are ready to forgive and forget. Take the initiative and make social arrangements with people you haven’t seen lately. A new family pet may help you heal old emotional wounds.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You count. Tell others what they can do to help you make an even bigger difference in your community. A friend’s self-confidence is directly affected by your opinion. You might have to shock someone to get his or her attention.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have the energy of a superhuman. Use it for your own projects, too, not just to further everyone else’s agenda. Money trickles down into your fun pile. Spiritual help is available for the asking.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t let worries keep you from accomplishing what you set out to do. Bad habits, particularly smoking and overindulgence, are easier to break now. It’s OK to tell family members what you really think tonight.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care so much for someone that you have lost your objectivity. Romantic capers make you doubly creative. Amusing friends contribute worthwhile ideas. If a loved one is in a no-win situation, don’t candy-coat your opinion.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Everyone knows you’ve got a big heart. Obligations must be handled in a new way, or energies get sapped. A romantic relationship needs some new life pumped into it. A child asks a serious question that deserves a truthful answer.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 30). You finally overcome one major obstacle, and by late August, your life has more purpose. The clutter magically clears up, and money hassles diminish. Aries and Scorpios rush in with jobs, love and solutions to family problems. In September, accept an unusual offer. A spouse or partner returns and restores your faith in December. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 17, 21, 23 and 31.
VIRGO (Aug. 23- Sept. 22). Today’s the day to solve the world’s problems — or at least a few of your own. People will know you according to the friends you keep. Impulse spending is still a temptation, but resist it if you can.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone close is thrilled when you let him or her take over sometimes. You are able to cut back without missing anything. Clean up — it’s great for your soul. In all matters, the clearer your sense of direction, the sooner you arrive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Concern yourself with the common good, but keep your needs foremost. Take vicarious pleasure in a love’s success. You are most productive when every hour of your day is accounted for. Review tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nobody wants to bnng secrets to the light, but the world asks you to be sharply observant. You’ll never get to the bottom of problems at work unless you are absolutely committed to asking in-depth questions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Stay-at-home moms have breakthroughs in the discipline of a child. Every creature responds more favourably to affection than to p. n. When you want the bare-bones truth, you get it. Casual dates are the most enjoyable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb 18). Be spontaneous. Perfection is for the gods. Besides, human foibles make you irresistibly sexy. You may be horrible at one thing, but you are outstandmg at something else. Concentrate on the process, not the final product.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It is lucky for you to return to old stomping grounds — if not actually, then in your daydreams. Potentially valuable ideas need to be developed and shouldn’t be shared until then. Compromise keeps a partnership running smoothly.
McCartney to McDoi aids: Conform animal standards
NORFOLK, Va. — Paul McCartney wants McDonald’s to apply its US. animal welfare standards to its restaurants worldwide.
The former Beatle who married Heather Mills earlier this month, took time out from his honeymoon to wnte to the top IOO shareholders of McDonald’s, asking them to urge the fast-food chain to extend the standards.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released the letter Thursday.
“Although McDonald’s has made laudable efforts on behalf of farmed
animals in the United States and (the) United Kingdom, it now needs to do the same in other countries,” the letter said. “Abuse is abuse, whether it goes on in Sussex or San Salvador, Toronto or Tijuana.”
In the past, PETA has taken credit for McDonald’s adoption of animal-welfare standards for cattle, pigs and chickens in the United States. The company has said the group wasn’t responsible for its actions.

Sign contract, teen driver
EDITOR’S NOTE: Ami Landers answered her readers’ letters up to her death on June 22. Die following was one of her last columns.
Dear Ann Landers: Years ago, you pnnted a contract for teenage drivers. My granddaughter is expecting her parents to give her a car when she turns 16 on her next birthday.
She will not be responsible for its upkeep, including gas and insurance. I’d like her and her parents to see this contract.
Would you please print it again? — Concerned Grandmother in Texas
Several readers have asked me to reprint that contract. It was written by John Violette of Nederland, Texas. I urge all parents whose children are now driving, or will be soon, to clip this column, discuss it with their teens and get a signature. Here it is:
Contract for Drivers It is understood and agreed that having a driver’s licence and driving a car are privileges. Any privilege has to be earned, and it must be earned on a continuing basis. This means that driving privileges may be revoked due to an infraction of the following rules:
I Breaking the dnving laws or abusing a motor vehicle can result in the loss
of driving privileges, even if we learn about it from a source other than the police. You never know who may be observing you.
2. You will strive to maintain the grades, conduct and attitude at the same high level as when we first granted your driving privileges.
3. No one else should be allowed to drive a vehicle entrusted to you. This means you may not lend youi vehicle to friends.
4. lf you are ever in a condition that might render you less than IOO per cent competent behind the wheel of a car, phone us. We will come get you. This will not result in the loss of your driving privileges.
5. You are never to be a passenger in a car in which the driver should not be driving. A call to come get you will not result in the loss of driving privileges. It you cannot reach us, call a taxi. We will pay for it, and there will be no punishment.

old professional woman who recently had braces put on my teeth. Every day, people ask me the same tired questions: “How long do you have to weal them?” “Why did you get braces?” “Do you like them?” “Do you think it s worth it?” “Why didn’t you get them when you weic younger?’ "How do you brush your teeth?” "Can you take them off ?”
May I answer, please? I have to wear the braces for two to three years. I am hoping they will make my smile prettier. I'm not fond of having a lot of metal in my mouth, but of couise it’s worth it for the end result. I didn’t get biaces when I was younger because my parents could not afford them I brush my teeth carefully and with cxtia effort. The. bi aces can’t come off until the orthodontist removes them.
I realize people ale curious, but it is not uncommon these days to see adults with braces. We don want to discuss them constantly. We would prefei to talk about other things, just like every one else Please folks, it you think about it for one sec ad. you will see that the answers are obvious Mel af Mouth in Maryland
Dear Mat viand: Adult brac es are more popular now that people realize they can finally afford to have the smile they’ve always wanted, i hanks tor writ mg
