New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 10, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Pago 26 Herald-Ze#flint?. New Braunfels, Texas Tuesday, December 10,1985 Dear Abby Bloom County Woman Who Survived Attack Is Now Bound in Red Tape DEAR ABBY: Three years ago I was raped, beaten and left for dead in the middle of nowhere. I found my way back, identified my attacker and pressed charges. We went to court, and he is now serving five to seven years. He was up for parole once and was denied. My problem: At the time of the attack, the police took all my personal belongings for evidence—including the jewelry and clothes they took off me in the hospital. They told me I couldn’t have anything hack until after the case was over. After the jerk was sentenced, I asked for my things and was told I would have to wait until the case was appealed. Next they tell me that the case has to be typed up, the judge must read it, sign it, then it must be filed. They said they “lost” my things. Two months later they found everything. I have been calling them once a month for three years, and I still don’t have anything back! I keep getting one stall after another; they say the courts are very busy now, and I will have to wait. OK, now that I have explained my predicament, I would like to forget this ugly incident once and for all, but I can’t get it out of my mind until I get my things back. Can you help me? FED UP IN CONNECTICUT DEAR FED UP: Yes. There is a non-profit organization that helps people like you. It is Victims for Victims, 1800 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, Calif. 90035.

DEAR ABBY: As a smoker, I want to thank you for your response Horoscope By Stella Wilder TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10 Bom today, you have a sharp mind and a capacity for quick judgment. You are able to see right to the heart of a problem in no time - often as soon as it is presented. You are a highly imaginative individual. This, combined with your seemingly limitless energy, makes you a valuable contributor to ail manner of ventures. You are the first to get to work on a project and the last to retire from it upon completion. Efficiency is ultimately the key to your success. Your one drawback may be that you tend to overestimate your endurance and you often work quite literally until you drop from exhaustion. It is essential that you pay keen attention to your health, for you make great demands upon both your mind and body. Rest and diet are your most valuable tools Also born on this date are Emily Dickinson, poet; Che! Huntley, newa commentator.

Your reply: “You had every right to complain. Most smokers need only be told politely that their smoke is offensive, and they promptly react with courtesy and consideration.” Yes, just ask me and I’ll gladly cooperate. I have learned to be assertive. If I want to smoke in a taxi and the driver doesn’t want me to, I get another cab. D K. CARNAHAN, NEW YORK DEAR D.K.; Some cab drivers are assertive, too. They light up without asking their passengers' permission. And if the passen gers object, they’re told to find another cab. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter was married a month ago, and a couple we know well attended both the wedding and reception. However, no gift was ever received from them. They live in our town, so I’m sure it wasn’t mailed. Should I mention it to them? Either they haven’t bought a gift yet, or if they gave money, it could have gotten lost at the reception. Our daughter received either a gift or money from everyone else. How much longer should we wait before we mention it to them? MOTHER OF THE BRIDE DEAR MOTHER; Forever. It would be in very poor taste to mention it.
