Astronauts enhance Hubble
SPACE CENTER, Houston — Working through cycles of night and day as they sped around Earth, astronauts outfitted the aging Hubble Space Telescope today with two powerful new eyes to enhance its view of the universe.
Spacewalkers Mark Lee and Steven Smith, in bulky space suits and breathing heavily, went about
their business with a minimum of chatter. They removed two scientific instruments from the Hubble and replaced them with two others more powerful and up to date.
But there were a few asides as Lee and Smith worked in the shuttle's open cargo bay against the background of a blue Earth.
“Beautiful planet,” said one of the astronauts.

Rules of Love Are Mandatory On This Day for Sweethearts

O 1997 Universal Press Syncftcate
DEAR READERS: A Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all! There may be snowdrifts on the ground or rain clouds in the forecast, but regardless of what the weatherman says, there is sunshine and springtime in our hearts.
Years ago, in celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided to write my own Ten Commandments, the Ten Commandments of Love. Actually, at the time I was so enthusiastic that I wrote 20 — one set for men and another for women. But then I received a letter from Mandy Stillman, a lawyer from Milwaukee, insisting that there be only one set of commandments.
She was right, of course. And here they are for your review:
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LOVE
• Put your spouse before your mother, your father, your son and your daughter. Your mate is your lifelong companion.
• Do not abuse your body with excessive food, tobacco, drink, or any foreign substance that goes into your arm or up your nose.
e will never forget the wonderful Hospice group who loved and cared for us during Andy’s illness.
We love you all.

• Remember that cleanliness is a virtue.
• Willingly share all of your worldly goods with your mate.
• Do not forget to say, “I love you." Even though your love may be constant, your spouse needs to hear those cherished words often.
• Remember that the approval of your spouse is worth far more than the adoring glances of a hundred strangers, so be true and forsake all others.
• Permit neither your business nor your hobby to make you a stranger to your children. The most precious gift a parent can give is time.
• Keep your home in good repair, because out of it come the joys of old age (not to mention its resale value).
• Forgive with grace, because who among us does not need to bt* forgiven?
• Honor the Lord your Clod every day of your life, and your children will grow up and bless you.
Today, be a sweetheart. Call someone you love and say. “I love you."
