DEAR ABBY: I am a 17-year-old girl and have just gotten out of a seven-month relationship. I was a virgin until this relationship. I told my boyfriend, "Gavin," that I was a virgin and wanted to wait until I trusted him and felt that I loved him. Well, the time came that I felt I did love and trust him, so I went ahead and had sex with him. After one month, Gavin decided he was sick of me! It seems like as soon as we started having sex, things started going downhill. I feel so hurt and used, I'm now starting to view sex negatively.

It may be every girl's dream: a big, fabulous wedding. This week a group of vendors is auctioning one off, complete with couture wedding gown, to honor another girl's dream: to cure cancer with lemonade. Alexandra Scott, the Wynnewood 8-year-old who died of cancer in 2004, raised more than $1 million to find a cure for childhood cancers. She started by selling lemonade in her front yard. To date, the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $19 million and funded more than 80 pediatric cancer research projects nationwide.

Marie E. Sankey Carney, 81, a businesswoman who during a 50-year career of mixing drinks, keeping the books, and making to-die-for crab cakes helped turn a single neighborhood bar into a string of family-run taverns and restaurants, died of breast cancer Monday at her home in Villanova. Mrs. Carney's career began with her wedding rings. When a building at 36th and Walnut Streets was for sale in 1950, her husband, John P., couldn't afford to buy it. Mrs. Carney told him to hock her wedding and engagement rings to raise money to buy the site, sure that they would be able to buy better rings in a few years.

Twenty-two-year-old James Samuels may have been bold when he and his partner used a hatchet to rob a jewelry store at the Neshaminy Mall. But they weren't very clever in their getaway - getting arrested as they tried to avoid paying a toll on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Samuels, of the 900 block of North 10th Street in Philadelphia, pleaded guilty Monday in Bucks County Court to charges of robbery, aggravated assault and receiving stolen property. Sentencing of Samuels was deferred until the man accused of being his partner goes to trial next month.

CAN'T GET a ticket for one of Madonna's two soldout First Union Center concerts this weekend? Try consoling yourself with an old Madonna demo tape, her used exercise equipment (Ooh! Madonna's dried sweat!) or a rejection letter she received from Millennium Records in 1981. Madonna memorabilia, some 70 lots in all, went on sale Wednesday in an online auction held by Sothebys.com and Gotta Have It Collectibles Inc., a New York memorabilia shop. Estimated prices range from $100 for a "Like a Prayer" promotional candle and poster to $10,000 for an MTV music video award for "Express Yourself" and upwards of $15,000 (but can you really put a price on something that's touched Madonna's breasts?

They traveled from the Northeast and Narberth, from Fairmount and Fishtown, clutching tote bags and shopping bags, cardboard boxes and big suitcases. They wrapped their treasures in old towels, stuffed them in pillowcases, cocooned them in layers upon layers of plastic bags. And for hours they stood in line patiently, eagerly, waiting to show their wonders to the world. The two auctioneers on hand to appraise artifacts during a special program at the Atwater Kent Museum Saturday didn't discover any objects worth millions, any copies of the Declaration of Independence squirreled away behind the backings of cheap paintings.

Laurie Miller makes children's fantasies come true. Take 9-year-old Yardley resident Scott Klein. His dream is to be a prince. Three-year-old Briana Tsarnas, on the other hand, likes to imagine she lives in the time of "Arabian Nights," dressing only in the finest silks. "Whatever their fantasy is, we have it," says Miller, the owner of A Wish Come True, a fantasy play shop for youngsters that opened in Morrisville in October. The shop, which is located in the Valley Creek Shopping Center next to the Morrisville Post Office, carries a large line of clothing for dressing up, funky accessories and a complete miniature recording studio for birthday parties.

After years of dating a parade of undesirables, my nearly-40-year-old cousin celebrated her wedding in San Francisco over Columbus Day weekend. My husband, teenage son, and I, joined by our daughter on her first break from freshman year at college, happily traveled westward for a weekend of family festivities. But the Saturday night wedding was set for sundown on Yom Kippur, the Jewish holy day of fasting, so our first day in the city was spent exploring on empty stomachs. We waited in front of our hotel for one of the famed cable cars, sharing the plaza with rowdy Occupy San Francisco protesters who shouted anti-corporate slogans through bullhorns and, somewhat ironically, sipped lattes from Starbucks.

The letter said he was about to be sent overseas, part of the intensifying American effort in World War II. So June Schoellkopf left her home in Merchantville and boarded a military train in Philadelphia and headed toward the Army Air Corps base in Walla Walla, Wash., where her fiance, Norman Baldwin, was stationed. For six days, she was the only woman on the train. But aside from a young man sitting next to her who fell asleep with his head on her shoulder, everyone respected her engagement ring.

ITALIANS GET all saucy when movies portray them as mobsters. The Irish foam at the mouth when movies portray them as drunks. Jews get whiny when Mel Gibson portrays them as killers of Jesus. And Republicans filibuster Michael Moore when he portrays them as . . . Republicans. Now angry Greek lawyers are threatening to sue Oliver Stone and Warner Bros. because "Alexander" is too gay. The San Francisco Chronicle's "Daily Dish" says the attorneys insist the empire builder was straight as an arrow, totally hetero, lover of wine, WOMEN and song.

The members of the William Paterson University softball team were sitting outside a restaurant in Kissimmee, Fla., last month waiting to be seated for dinner as President Bush declared war on Iraq. Pioneers centerfielder Liz Carroll, a graduate of Middle Township High School in Cape May Court House, N.J., thought instantly of the man she was scheduled to marry in June, Army Spec. Chris Boyer.
