EDITORIAL


Wounded


soldiers


deserve


to keep


bonuses

private Jordan Fox of Mt.
Lebanon, Pa., was partially
blinded by a roadside
bomb in Iraq. Like thousands
of wounded warriors
returning from the war, he deserves the
gratitude of the nation for making such
a sacrifice.
But he got a letter from the
Army demanding that he repay the
$2,800 enlistment bonus he had
received because he didn't complete
his three-year tour of duty.
The Department of Defense insisted
that soldiers who received such letters
got them by mistake. An Army
spokeswoman e-mailed the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette that "it is Department of
Defense policy that soldiers who
become ill or are wounded while on
active duty are entitled to keep all
recruitment bonuses due to them."
But that doesn't explain why service
members have been caught in this
predicament
Americans should be glad to know
that both the House and Senate have
passed legislation mandating that
soldiers sidelined by injuries be allowed.
to keep such bonuses. Rep. Jason
Altmire, D-Pa., took an interest in the
issue long before he heard about
Mr. Fox's plight. He spearheaded a
House bill, which was passed last week,
that secures the bonuses of wounded
soldiers.
The House measure must now be
re bntciled with the Senate version.
Fortunately, there is no controversy
when it comes to protecting the bonus
rights of troops unable to complete
their service because they've endured
injuries on behalf of their country.

COMMENTARY


Congress' Christmas


stocking is full of pork


WASHINGTON


Congress, that
irrepressible
spending machine
that is held in
lower public
esteem than even the current
war-strapped president, has
been busy stuffing constituent
Christmas stockings full of
goodies and if you happen to
be one of the lucky ones, the
coming year should be a good
one. That is if George W.
Bush doesn't issue an order to
his troops to ignore most of
the'outlandish projects tacked
on to the $555 billion omnibus
appropriations bill just passed
and the $459 billion defense
appropriations measure
adopted last month.
Could he do that? Probably.
Should he do that? He most
definitely should.
The Democratic leadership,
which took over last January
with a pledge to curtail all
those politically motivated
so-called earmarks in
appropriations bills, may have
slowed the process slightly to
about 26 percent fewer than
the practice's high-water mark
in appropriations bills two
years ago, but the bills still
contain about 11,000 of the
treasury-draining items, many
of which are as outrageously
audacious as those of any time
in the past. Among them is
the most perfectly crafted
example of log rolling anyone
has seen in some time an
Alaskan ferry plan that is
shamelessly sponsored by a
senator and a House member
who are both under
investigation.
When Sen. Ted Stevens and
Rep. Don Jones lost in the
highly publicized bridge to
nowhere debacle last year -
it became the battle cry for
the anti-earmark forces -
most people thought they
were finished. Ha. Those who
did just failed to understand
the sheer gall of these two
old-time sourdoughs. They
came back this year with a
plan for an expeditionary boat
that would travel the same


OTHER


Merry, yes; simple, not by a long shot


e Americans
can't do
"simple
holidays."
We probably
wouldn't recognize one if it
cropped up on the calendar.
This year's Christmas, a
boisterous and appealing mix
of the sacred and the secular,
will be bigger and gaudier
than ever. Let us browse some
of the Census Bureau's
collection of gee-whiz facts:
Christmas trees are a
half-billion-dollar business.
China is our leading supplier
of tree ornaments and our
leading foreign source of


Dan K.Thomasson

route as the bridge would
have. The cost to the
taxpayers is $20 million, at
least to start; more later.
It is literally a ferry to
nowhere. Well, not quite,
since it would connect
Anchorage to a pretty-much
desolate rural peninsula
known as the
Matanuska-Susitna Borough,
where Jones' son-in-law just
happens to own land. Stevens
pitched the expeditionary
craft as for military purposes,
but Young touted it for what it
was a passenger boat. Who
would want to go? Plenty
apparently, since the peninsula
is two hours from Anchorage
now and only 15 minutes if the
boat is built, making the area
prime for suburban real estate
development.
Both Stevens and Young
have been under some federal
scrutiny for their dealings
with an Alaskan oilman and
lobbyist.
Okay! So what's the use of
being in Congress if you can't
do a favor now and then for
your loyal constituents like a
museum in Canton, Ohio,
honoring the nation's first
ladies? Does anyone really
give a hoot? Most people have
trouble identifying all the
presidents and vice
presidents. The omnibus bill
includes another $126,000 for
that pet project of Ohio
Republican Rep. Ralph Regula
whose wife founded the
museum and whose daughter
runs it on the site of the home
of Ida Saxton McKinley, the
wife of President William
McKinley. Remember her?
Regula persuaded the
National Park Service to
spend $1.1 million to buy the


artificial trees. Texas is our
leading supplier of candles,
$161 million worth at last
count. Jewelry-store sales will
jump 155 percent this month.
And because we're. a
sociable and family-oriented
people, more than 65 million
of us will be traveling to be
with loved ones, undaunted by
the hassle and the expense of
getting there.
At some stage during the
holidays, an exhausted
celebrant will sprawl in a chair
and wonder why we can't have
just a simple holiday. That may
work for individuals, but it
doesn't work for us as a people.


The "modern" Christmas
was partly a creation of
Clement Moore and "Twas
the Night Before Christmas"
- Santa Claus, the reindeer
and all that and Charles
Dickens and "A Christmas
Carol," which enshrined
generosity and charity as the
spirit of Christmas.
And although Christmas
is not and as long as we
have our way, never will be -
a simple holiday, the
underlying message is
simplicity itself: Peace on
Earth, good will toward men.

N Scripps Howard News Service


place way back in 1991 and
has made financing it a major
cause since.
In the omnibus bill's roads
and dams section, there is a
neat $100,000 for signage in
Los Angeles' fashion district,
according to Taxpayers for
Common Sense. This is small
change compared to the
$9 million for "rural
preparedness" in Kentucky.
Then there is $250, 000 for a
wine and culinary center in
Prosser, Wash. But what's a
few hundred thousand dollars
or even a million or so -
when no one in Washington,
D.C., really starts counting
until at least $1 billion.
Not all earmarks, are
unworthy or so blatantly
self-serving as the bridges
to nowhere and its ferry
successor. Necessary water
treatment facilities and other
community projects that have
been ignored by the
government are legitimate.
But enough of them are so
outlandish that the
phenomenon has received
an increasing amount of bad
publicity and has added to
an image of general
congressional irresponsibility
and even venality. A large
number of activist groups,
both liberal and conservative,
have sprung up to attack the
practice.
Before you open your
Christmas stocking, you
should be aware that Bush
has ordered his budget people
to consider ignoring all those
earmarks that aren't backed
up by specifically binding
legislative language. There is
likely to be a giant howl from
Capitol Hill, where lawmakers
believe the credit they receive
for buttering constituents'
bread is a necessity to holding
office. That may be, but they
aren't likely to get much
sympathy from this president
who will soon be in the
process of entering his final
year and couldn't care less.

editor of the Scripps Howard
News Service.

blackness of the winter night,
my eyes are drawn to colorful
displays of light that people use
to festoon their houses, bushes and trees. In
this most dreary time of year, just getting out
of bed in the morning becomes an obstacle to
overcome, rather than an automatic and
cheerful spring of the limbs. One's most
coveted activity (in my case, horseback
riding) often seems more like an obligation or
chore, really,
instead of
something
one cannot wait i t -
to do.
I'm not -.'
alone. Among
my equestrian
buddies, the Bonnie Erbe
common bonnieerbe@CompuServe.com
complaint this
time of year is, "I'm so out of shape. I can't
even force myself to ride most days." It's not
the temperature that stops us. It's our moods.
But sufferers of seasonal affective disorder, or
SAD, can now come out of the closet It's no
longer the stigma or figment it once was.
Pagan tribes celebrated the winter solstice,
and it's no accident that Christianity's most
colorful holiday, which has evolved to include
red-clothed Santas and bright blue, green and
red lights, is four days later. Since the
beginning of time, medical authorities now
report, human animals have been inventing
ways to brighten dreary winters, while some
of their mammal colleagues take it off
altogether and sleep through it.
Dr. Richard Friedman, a Weill Cornell
Medical College psychiatrist writing in
The New York Times this week said, "As
daylight wanes, millions begin to feel
depressed, sluggish and socially withdrawn.
They also tend to sleep more, eat more and
have less sex. By spring or summer the
symptoms abate, only to return the next
autumn. Once regarded skeptically by the
experts, seasonal affective disorder, SAD for
short, is now well established.
Epidemiological studies estimate that its
prevalence in the adult population ranges
from 1.4 percent (Florida) to 9.7 percent
(New Hampshire)."
It comes as no surprise to those of us who
suffer from it that the percentage of people
affected is much higher in New Hampshire,
where the winters are colder, the light is
thinner and the days are much shorter than
in tropical Florida. What may be a surprise to
many is that there are now treatments, so
suffering through winter, if you're affected by
SAD, is no longer de riguer.
Bright, full-spectrum light early in the
morning is the best nonmedical intervention.
Scientists have now confirmed that the
production of melatonin, "a brain chemical
turned on by darkness and off by light,"
Friedman writes, can be controlled to a
certain extent by artificial light and that
melatonin production tracks closely with SAD
in many sufferers. "There might have been a
survival advantage, a few hundred thousand
years back, to slowing down and conserving
energy sleeping and eating more in
winter. Could people with seasonal depression
be the unlucky descendants of those
well-adapted hominids?" asks Friedman.
The Mayo Clinic offers some online
guidelines for when SAD is serious enough to
prompt a visit to the doctor. "Most people
experience some days when they feel down.
But if you feel down for days at a time and you
can't seem to get motivated to do activities
you normally enjoy, see your doctor. This is
particularly important if you notice that your
sleep patterns and appetite have changed -
and certainly if you feel hopeless, think about
suicide or find yourself turning to alcohol for
comfort or relaxation."
But the main thing to remember is, if you
do need help, you're hardly alone. You're
joined by millions of others in the United
States and worldwide. That closet door is now
open. If northern winters are getting you
down, turn the handle, walk out and join the
crowd.

Lady Tigers open

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High's girls
basketball team is taking its
own trip to the Panhandle for
a Christmas tournament. The
Lady Tigers open Thursday
with an 8:30 a.m. (CST) game
against Spanish Fort, Ala.
Host team Choctawhatchee
High plays Poplarville, Miss.,
and both are in the same
mini-bracket with Columbia.
Losers square off at 3 p.m.,
Thursday, and the winners
play at 5:30 p.m.
In the other bracket, Raines
High plays Gulf Breeze High
and Pensacola High plays


Northview, Ga., on Friday.
Continuing matchups
depend on winning and losing
in the double-elimination
tournament.
Columbia has won three
straight to improve to 8-5
overall. Two of those wins
have been in District 4-5A
where the Lady Tigers are 5-4.
"I think we are definitely
improving," CHS head coach
Horace Jefferson said. "The
young ladies are buying into
what the coaching staff is
selling. I really do believe that
if we continue to move in a
positive direction good things
are going to happen."
Sharmayne Edwards is
leading Columbia in scoring
with an 18.2 average. The
sophomore also is averaging
4.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and
two steals per game.


C-aliers


Senior Tasheona Harris is
averaging 10.5 points, 5.1
assists, 4.4 rebounds and two
blocks per game.
'Tasheona is definitely our
catalyst," Jefferson said. "We
feed off her energy and she
has definitely provided senior
leadership. It has been a
pleasure coaching her and all
of the Lady Tigers.
"Kaylyn Varnum, Deandrea
Edwards, Liz Coker, Alexis
McCray and Yasmine
Harrington have also played
an intricate part in our
progression."
Jefferson recently brought
up freshman Michelle Fulton,
who was put to the test at
Eastside High on Friday.
Harris was fouled on a
rebound, but the referees sent
Fulton to the line to take the
free throws. Fulton made the

"We are believing and we

ahead," Jefferson said.

Green Anjou, Red Anjou, Cornice, Seckel, Forelle, Bosc, Concorde,
Starkrimson, Green Bartlett and Red Bartlett.
Ripen pears at room temperature and check for ripeness by pressing
the neck or stem end. It's ripe if it yields to gentle pressure. To slow
ripening, simply put them into the refrigerator.

DEAR ABBY


Mom with alcohol issues is

threat to daughters' health


DEAR ABBY: We have
out-of-state friends who have
two daughters, ages 10 and
11. More than once I have
seen the mother give her girls
sips of her wine even hard
liquor when she is drink-
ing. We do not allow our chil-
dren to do this. We have dis-
cussed drinking in modera-
tion with them, but only when
they are of legal age..
My problem is, this friend
and her family will soon be
coming here to visit. She has
now informed me that she'll
be bringing a bottle of wine
for her girls to drink. When I
asked her not to because I'm
not comfortable with it and
my kids aren't allowed to do
so, she started arguing that
mine don't have to. Then she
said that she wouldn't bring a
bottle for her girls, but would
let them have some of hers.
She argues that this is com-
mon in Europe.
This situation has me
uncomfortable. Am I being
unreasonable? OLD-
FASHIONED IN THE
U.SA.
DEAR OLD-FASH-
IONED: Unless your friend
and her family LIVE in
Europe, please wake up to the
fact that she is trying to ration-
alize her own alcohol prob-
lem. While some parents
allow children an occasional
sip of whatever they (the par-
ents) are drinking, they do
NOT bring along an extra bot-

tie "for their children"!
This indicates to me that
the girls are doing a lot more
than "sipping." What you have
described is a family in seri-
ous need of an intervention,
because your friend's behav-
ior is child endangerment.
She's jeopardizing her chil-
dren's health. My advice is to
tell her you would prefer no
alcohol in your house peri-
od. I'm betting it will cause
her to cancel her plans to visit.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
close friend, "Dee," who is
more than 50 pounds over-
weight. She wears the trendi-
est clothes, styles her hair and
makeup to perfection, and has
oodles of male friends she'd
love to be more than friends
with, but has never been in a
serious relationship.
When we go out with her
male friends, they shower me
with compliments and atten-
tion. I'm friendly, but never
flirt with them. It makes me
uncomfortable that Dee -
who I'm constantly trying to
shift attention to by mention-
ing the "funny thing she did at


work today," or a compliment
that she received at work, etc.
- is obviously unhappy.
I love spending time with
her, but feel like if I'm there
she'll get less attention and
lessen her chances of finding
a significant other. Dee has a
wonderful personality and is
one of the nicest people I
know. I really want to see her
happy.
I have even resorted to
lying to her about men look-
ing at her in a bar or fabricat-
ing compliments that I say I
overheard a male friend say
about her. It visually changes
her mood for the better, but I
feel awful for making it up. I'm
becoming exhausted trying
not to show interest in her
friends, "dressing down"
when we go ofit so as not to
attract attention, and lying to
her to make it all better. What
can I do besides avoid her
altogether? "DEE"-
VOTED FRIEND IN D.C.
DEAR FRIEND: The first
thing you must do is stop
lying to her. Every time you
do, you raise her hopes that
the person you have invented
will show an interest, which of
course can never happen.
Sometimes it takes a loving
friend to direct our attention
to something we would rather
ignore, and it appears in this
case, that person is you.
