Both old and new friends and associates will play important roles in helping you have an easier row to hoe in the year ahead. They’ll stand by you in your time of need because you’ll be there for them when they need you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you choose to work in a busy environment today, chances are you’ll be easily distracted and somewhat limited in your productivity. Try to find solitude if you hope to accomplish your aims.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t make waves today by ignoring family needs to satisfy a personal, expensive desire. Talk things out first with the clan in order to understand how they’d feel.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be careful not to come on too bossy today. Persons with whom you share your day will perform better with a minimum amount of supervision. Leave others to their own devices.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Again today, you may find yourself periodically out of control when it comes to your spending practices. Strike a balance between wastefulness and penny-pinching.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — What you desire to accomplish today can be achieved, so long as you don’t start taking shortcuts to save time. Your haste will invite mistakes and more delays.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Behavior predicated upon sober, clear-headed reflection will lead to desirable results today. Conversely, when you’re nonchalant about situations, the opposite will be true.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Before getting involved again with one who is already obligated to you, ask him/her to straighten out the old matters satisfactorily first. Otherwise, you’ll only get in deeper.
, LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you truly want to make progress today on a present objective, re-evaluate it to be sure you . haven’t been chasing an unattainable goal. You may need to replace it with a feasible target.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Relying too heavily upon chance or luck today in a situation that requires methodical management will lead to failure. Logical procedures will enhance your abilities to achieve.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Should you slip out of your bailiwick today, you could act in ways that would prove costly. Stick to endeavors where you have knowledge, expertise and experience.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Standing around waiting for others to catch up with you today will get you no place fast.
Greater progress can be made if you act alone and proceed at your own speed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Sometimes you allow irrelevant matters to dominate your time and attention and this could be one of those days again for you unless you focus on important issues and make them your priority.
Monday, Jan. 6, 2003
In the year ahead many restrictions and tensions might be lifted off your shoulders and a fun cycle could be in the offing for you. A number of new friends and interests might command your time and attention.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan. 19) — It’s smart to do more listening today than talking, especially when having a discussion with a well-informed friend. What he or she tells you could end up being very constructive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although you might have to do so in small stages, a goal you’ve been anxious to achieve will be attainable today. Be both patient and persistent and you’ll accomplish your goals.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Watch the winners of the world today to see what you can effectively imitate. You can learn an important lesson by using your abilities as an observer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It isn’t likely that anyone will be able to pull the wool over your eyes today. You won’t be deceived by outward appearances; you’ll grasp what lurks behind people’s motives and actions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — It pays
to rehash important issues today down to their smallest details before taking any action on them. It’s best to do so with a cohort who understands the matter as well as you do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You’ll be compensated in proportion to the efforts you expend today. Use your smarts when performing your work and do a little extra if you can fit it in. It’ll be appreciated.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — By getting others to talk about themselves today, you’ll not only put them at ease, you’ll make them think you’re pretty great to be around as well. Popularity stems from showing interest in others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Showing thoughtful concern for loved ones will be particularly appreciated today. They will focus on the little things you do for them that show how much you care.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Apply your ingenuity and resourcefulness to involvements that require creativity or an imaginative twist. You’ll be especially skillful in devising original concepts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A number of small gains can build up to a pretty large sum today, so be satisfied with each little accomplishment and let them add up one at a time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Because you’ll have a way of making the affairs of others appear more enticing than yours today, it shouldn’t be too difficult for you to find persons who will be supportive of your views.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — This could be the day that someone who owes you something will try to make an effort to repay you in some manner. His or her gesture will be most welcome.

Odds & Ends
LANTANA, Fla. (AP) — It didn’t take long to crack this case.
Detectives say a forgetful thief left his wallet behind when he pulled a gas station stickup.
Authorities said Alfonso Valbuena, 22, opened his wallet and asked a gas station clerk for change. He then allegedly set his wallet on the counter and pulled a gun.
Valbuena robbed the store of about $200 and fled, deputies said. The clerk wasn’t hurt.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they found the wallet still on the counter. They used several traffic citations inside to find owner’s car, along with Valbuena, in an apartment complex.
Deputies recovered the weapon used in the robbery and the money. He was being held in the county jail without bond on an armed robbery charge.
nity music and art project. He handed it back to Hora, who said the letter will be displayed in a local museum.
The stolen ’S’ spawned months of intrigue around the community, as the letter frequently popped up at events, only to quickly disappear.
Ransom notes for the 'S’ were sent to Youngman at the Sundstrom building, to Carol Potter at the Cadillac Area Visitor’s Bureau and to the Cadillac News office.
CADILLAC, Mich. (AP) — The ’S’ pilfered months ago from the front of the Floyd Sundstrom building has finally surfaced.
The remaining letters are still missing, however, apparent victims of community pranksters who freed the letter S’ Tuesday during the city’s New Year’s celebration.
Wexford County Historical Society member Diane Hora showed up with the ’S’ handcuffed to her wrist.
“They gave it to me at about 3:30 at the school and told me to return it to Frank (Youngman) and then it was going to be given back to us later at the pep rally,” Hora said.
She declined to say who ’they’ were.
Hora ret unled the ’S’ to Youngman, who this summer used the vacant Sundstrom building to

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (AP) — An error in a newspaper advertisement touting a New Year’s Day sale at a sporting goods store created extra work for some 911 dispatchers and police officers.
In the full-page ad that ran Tuesday morning in The Grand Rapids Press, the prefix for the telephone number of Dunham’s Sports store was incorrectly listed as 911. The correct prefix is 977.
When readers dialed the first three digits of the incorrect phone num ber, their calls automatically went to the 911 dispatchers.
Many callers hung up as soon as they realized a mistake had been made, requiring dispatchers to return the calls to make sure there were no emergencies, said Jay Vermeer, dispatch supervisor for Kent County
Some of the dispatchers’ returned calls went unanswered, so police officers were sent to homes to investigate.
Vermeer did not know how many calls dispatchers answered Tuesday but estimated they received about 50 to IOO calls the next day. The newspaper published a correction Wednesday.
