We were fortunate to find a handicapped space near the entrance. When we returned to the van, a car had squeezed into the adjacent blue-striped area. It required leaving my son unattended behind the other vehicle while I pulled my car out. What made matters worse was that mall security was present and did nothing. It makes my blood boil to see people use the striped areas. Some of these people have handicapped placards or plates, so I guess they think that makes it OK. It does NOT. The striped areas are there to provide safe passage for individuals using wheelchairs, walkers

The Herald

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 2012 Something in which you’re presently involved might have potential for a greater yield in the coming year than you may realize. It behooves you stick with your current course of action -- it’ll pay off eventually. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It behooves you to be extremely selective regarding those whom you go to for advice. Turning to a friend might not be the smartest thing if he or she isn’t any more informed than you are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Think twice before getting involved with a friend in some sort of financial matter. It might take a longer time to resolve than anybody realized, and you could be stuck with some of the payback. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Keep your colleagues fully informed about your intentions before acting on them. If you make a move without their knowledge, big trouble could result. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Because of your sharp intuitive powers, you can often see where things are heading from the get-go. That doesn’t mean you’ll always be right, though, and that could be the case today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’s quite possible that you’ll make an unusually strong impression on others. Just make sure it’s not a negative one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Partial victories won’t have much significance in the general scheme of things, so don’t kid yourself into believing something is a fait accompli if it’s only half-finished. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you’re not on your toes, it’s quite likely that you’ll repeat an error very similar to one you recently made, only this time you won’t have any excuses. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Do your best to avoid financial gambles and those who are prone to take them. If you don’t do so, you’re asking for money trouble. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Clarify the rules regarding a partnership arrangement so that no one in the group tries to supersede anyone else. Should that happen, trouble is likely. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Move today when considering making any long-range maneuvers concerning your work or career, in order to be sure that your information is accurate and your ideas realistic. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -This is not a good time to make loans to friends or to borrow any funds from them. Arrangements of this ilk are likely to cause complications in the future. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -In your eagerness to start something new, you might not take under consideration all the ramifications. Don’t get in over your head.
