NEW ORLEANS In
the end, it was a crush of
mud that finally plugged
the blown-out well in the
Gulf of Mexico, three
months after the offshore
drilling rig explosion that
unleashed a gusher of oil


and a summer of misery
along the Gulf Coast.
The government stopped
just short of pronouncing
the well dead, cautioning
that cement and mud must
still be pumped in from the
bottom to seal it off for
good.
President Barack Obama
declared that the battle to
contain one of the world's
worst oil spills is "finally,
close to coming to an end."

A second budget work-

City staff have been
aggressive in tighten-

Manager Wendell Johnson.
Both the enterprise and
general funds are balanced
in the proposed budget.
"I'm very pleased given'


the conditions," he said. "I
don't think it could have

The breakdown of enter-

expenditures include: $11.9
million for water/sewer;
$3.9 million for natural
gas; and $1.6 million for
airport. The 2010 budget
included $10.7 million for
water/sewer, more than $4

$1.2 million for airport.
The enterprise funds are

Johnson said. The user fees
support the service.
Other cost-saving mea-

prior to starting the bud-

Bristol Palin calls it quits with fiance


ANCHORAGE, Alaska
he on-again, off-again
engagement between
Bristol Palin and Levi
Johnston is off again.
.'.The 19-year-old daugh-
ter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin called off her wedding plans
after Johnston told her he may have
fathered a baby with another woman.
Bristol Palin did not identify the
woman when she gave a teary inter-
view to People magazine to announce
the breakup. A pregnant ex-girlfriend
of Johnston has publicly denied he is
the father.
Palin said Johnston told her about
the baby on July 14, the day the cou-
ple announced their re-engagement
-Palin and the 20-year-old Johnston
have a toddler son together, Tripp.
.Representatives for Palin and
Johnston did not immediately return
requests for comment Tuesday. But
Johnston's attorney, Rex Butler, told
.The Washington Post he doubts the
pair have permanently split.
"These young folk have a lot of
pressure on them right now," he
said. "All you have to do is watch
that show 'Bridezillas' it's on and
off, on and off, depending on the
pressures."

Members of the city

Guzman said he was

deemed as the "most

"There's nothing bet-

the patient who is just
expecting a little bit of

he said. "Whenever you

Extending tax cuts for wealthy

a $700B mistake, Geithner says


Associated Press
WASHINGTON
- Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner said
Wednesday that extend-
ing the Bush-era tax cuts
for the wealthy would be
a $700 billion mistake. He
also rejected a compro-
mise proposal that would


extend the cuts for one or
two years.
Geithner said cuts for
families making more
than $250,000 annu-
ally should be allowed to
expire on schedule at the
end of the year. But the
administration believes
tax cuts for the 95 percent


of taxpayers making less
than $250,000 should
be extended, he said.
Geithner's comments
came during a speech at
the Center for American
Progress and focused on a
key economic battle lead-
ing up to the November
midterm elections.


Yet after months of living
with lost income, fouled
shorelines and dying wild-
life, some Gulf Coast resi-
dents weren't so sure.
"I don't think we've fin-
ished with this," said 59-
year-old Harry "Cho-cho"
Cheramie, who grew up' in
Grand Isle, La. "We haven't
really started to deal with
it yet. We don't know what
effect it's going to have
on our seafood in the long
run."
Still, it appeared there
might finally be an end
in sight to the disaster
that closed vast stretches


of fishing areas, interrupt-
ed the usually lucrative
tourist season, and cost
BP's CEO his job and the
company's shareholders
billions of dollars.
BP PLC said 2,300 bar-
rels of mud forced down
the well overnight htd
pushed the crude back
down to its source for
the first time since the
Deepwater Horizon rig
exploded off Louisiana on
April 20, killing 11 work-
ers and sending tar balls
washing onto beaches and
oil oozing into delicate
coastal marshes.

domain, a time-consuming
process, they could do so.
, Negotiating the purchase
of the properties and acquir-
ing the land rights is the
final step before the project
can be put out to bid, a proj-
ect that was "technically"
conceived in 1976, Williams
said.
'This being the last
phase and the most compli-
cated of the phases, it may
seem like forever in order
to accomplish, but it is a pri-
ority of the Board of County
Commissioners," he said.
'They're not going take any
unnecessary shortcuts, not
this late in the game, but
they would like to see it
brought to a conclusion as
quickly as it could."
When built, the connec-
tor road will run' between
Lowe's on NW Bascom
Norris Drive and New
Millenium on Lake Jeffrey
Road.
Theboardwillalso discuss
updates on bringing a youth
baseball tournament event
to the Southside Recreation
Complex through
Cooperstown Dreams Park
in Co.operstown, N.Y., an
event that would boost the
county's tourism and econ-


omy.
Williams said he received
a memo from Harvey
Campbell, Columbia County
Tourist *Developmeit
Council executive director,
asking for the board's con-
sideration on how to "pur-
sue" the matter, which has
been in county discussion
for months.
Williams said Campbell
mentioned "a lack of inter-
est" from Cooperstown
officials in the potential
deal.
A new, Internet-based
phone system for the
county costing more than
$420,000 is also on the
county agenda for discus-
sion.
The system would do
away with using land-
lines and is expected to
save $116,000 annually
on monthly phone bills,
returning the county's ini-
tial investment in less than
four years, Williams said.
The Columbia County
Board of County
Commissioners will meet
at 7 p.m. Thursday at the
Columbia County School

Complex auditorium, 372

INION


Plugging

the holes

in drilling

regulations

Now that the oil
gusher in the Gulf
has largely been
plugged, another
deluge is headed
the industry's way. At least
80 bills are before Congress
aimed at preventing another
Deepwater Debacle.
The bills would provide
better oversight over drill-
ing and ensure that before oil
companies bore a mile under
water, they have to prove that
they know how to do it safely
and are prepared to clean it up
quickly if there's a spill.
If passed, the House's
Consolidated Land, Energy, and
Aquatic Resources Act would
disqualify companies with blem-
ished records from bidding on
oil exploration leases, correctly
blocking BP from new leases
until it meets safety standards.
Drilling for oil under U.S.
waters is a privilege, not a right
BP has to be held accountable
for this disaster.
Had federal regulators done
their jobs, there wouldn't be
efforts now to give the Fish
and Wildlife Service, the Coast
Guard and the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
the oversight they should have
had all along.
BP has been less than forth-
coming froth the start It admit-
ted recently to doctoring photos
on its website. The company
demonstrated again and again
that it was not only ill-equipped
to handle the country's worst
environmental disaster, but
was unwilling to respond truth-
fully. BPs performance under-
scores the need for wholesale
overhauls, not the incremental
tweaks the industry prefers.

An unlikely rescuer for Dems


When Democrats
seemed in
certain peril,
with their polls
plummeting and
their former voters sounding
fed up with their handling of all.
things foreign and domestic,.
along comes the unlikeliest of
rescuers.
It's the Republicans! And they
seem clearly hell-bent on saving
the Democrats from their cer-
tain political fate!
No, not the Grand Old Party
of yesteryear. Not the philo-
sophically uncomplicated con-
gressional party led by Everett
Dirksen and Jerry Ford that
proudly proclaimed their one-
note-fits-all, anti-deficit refrain
while lambasting LBJ's "Great
Society" Democrats as shame-
less big spenders.
We're talking about the 21st
Century Republicans headed
by Mitch McConnell and John
Boehner. They were given
the gift of a win-win bonanza
- a Democratic president
and Congress that produced
what voters see as unpopular
bailouts, a jobless recovery, a
nightmarishly unwinnable war
- and Democratic House and
Senate leaders who are late-
night punch lines.
What the Republican lead-
ers did with it was to re-gift
the Democrats. They did what
decades of Democratic mes-
sage scripters couldn't do. The
Republicans recycled their own,
old "party-of-the-rich" label and
pinned the tale on their own
elephant
On a recent Fox News
Sunday show, Senate
Republican Whip John Kyl (R-
Arit.) supported extending the
Bush era tax cuts for the wealth-
iest Americans and also end-
ing unemployment benefits for
the unluckiest Americans who
have played by the rules but


Martin Schram

became victims of the reces-
sion and still cannot find work.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch
McConnell (R-Ky.) quickly
endorsed the idea.
Also, Kyl and McConnell,
leaders of a GOP that has cham-
pioned pay-as-you-go policies,
refused to say what expendi-
tures they want to cut to pay for
continuing tax breaks for the
top brackets which will cost
an estimated $678 billion over
10 years. Kyl even said it is OK
to increase the deficit to'pay for
the tax break for the wealthiest
- but not to pay for benefits for
the unluckiest who are unem-
ployed.
The background on this
is that President George W.
Bush's tax cuts are all due to
expire at the end of this year.
President Obama has proposed
ending the tax cuts for the
wealthiest Americans (couples
earning $250,000 a year, indi-
viduals earning $200,000), but
continuing tax breaks for mid-
dle and lower bracket taxpayers.
Obama also wants to extend
unemployment benefits.
Republicans justify their posi-
tion with the old trickle-down
argument: That cutting taxes
for the wealthiest will hurt
job creation in the recovering
economy. But wait Economists
agree that the wealthiest don't
pump most of the tax cut dol-
lars they receive back into the
economy. But virtually all of the
unemployed shovel their ben-
efits back into the economy, just
to pay for food and housing and


so on. It is far more effective
way to stimulate job creation.
But the trickle-down argu-
ment, when sounded by
today's Republican leaders,
was punctured most effectively
this past weekend by the man
who in the 1980s was selling
us Reaganomics as trickle-
down brilliance. We are talking
about David Stockman, the
Reagan director of Office of
Management and Budget, who
was a true believer up until he
suddenly discovered the guid-
ing principle of supply side
Reaganomics was really more
trickle-on than trickle-down.
In a devastating op-ed column
in Sunday's New York Times -
sub-headline: "How my G.O.P.
destroyed the U.S. economy"
- Stockman called McConnell's
position "unseemly." The one-
time Reagan disciple whose
policies once grew the deficit
to nearly three times what it
was on Inauguration Day 1981,
called today's Republican posi-
tion "vulgar Keynesianism
robed in ideological vestments
of the prosperous class."
Here's a solution: Former
Federal Reserve Board vice
chairman Alan S. Blinder has
called for ending the tax break
for the top brackets for at least
two years a savings of $75
billion over two years and
using that money not to reduce
the deficit but to pay for unem-
ployment insurance and food
stamp benefits.
Economist Mark Zandi of
Moody's Analytics, told a House
Budget Committee hearing his
economic model estimated that
extending unemployment ben-
efits would provide almost five
times the "bang for the buck"
as the Bush tax breaks. That
would be a smart way to start

OTHER OPINION


Czar's weak reasoning on rationing


We're calling
him Dr. Ration.
Others are call-
ing him the
Rationing Czar
or the Rationer in Chief. He
is Don Berwick, MD, whom
President Barack Obama just
appointed as the administrator
for the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services, which
runs the huge Medicare and
Medicaid government health
programs.
This was a recess appoint-
ment, meaning it bypassed the
usual Senate approval process.
Berwick thus avoided hearings
in which Republicans would
have questioned him closely. ,
The appointment lasts until a
new Congress convenes next
January.
Berwick has long advocated
a rationing of health care along


the model of Great Britain's
National Health Service.
Praising the NHS in a speech
in Britain in 2008, he said:
"Any health care funding plan'
that is just, equitable, civilized
and humane must redistribute
wealth from the richer among
us to the poorer and the less
fortunate. Excellent health
care is, by definition, redistri-
butional."
Grace-Marie Turner,
president'of a free-market
medical think tank called the
Galen Institute, told Freedom
Communications that the
Obama health care reform
"sits with Berwick's ideology.
It's the idea that government
knows best; American patients
and doctors need to be told
what to do. Now he has 2,700
pages of legislation and one-
sixth of the economy to imple-


ment his vision."
We, too, favor broader
access to health care but
access achieved through
free-market reforms that
address everything from pre-
existing conditions (shared
high-risk pools) to lower-cost
premiums (private insurance
exchanges, fewer mandates,
sensible tort reforms).
The goal is to keep health
care in the innovative private
sector and keep medical deci-
sions in the hands of doctors
and patients.
Despite Dr. Ration's incli-
nations, individuals should
be diagnosed and treated as
individuals, not as health sta-
tistics riding a government-
run conveyor belt of pack-
aged care.

Hanging

out with

my sister

S sisters start out hating
to share a room and
end up never wanting
to say goodbye.
When we were
growing up, six years apart, I
wanted to be just like my big
sister.
I wanted to look like her. Act
like her. Think like her. Smell
like her. Be her best friend and
most trusted confidante. Dog
her heels day and night
She, in turn, wanted nothing
to do with me. In her words,
I was "just a baby," and, thus,
totally unfit for her company.
My orders were clear: I was
not allowed to touch anything
she touched. I had to plug my
ears when she whispered dirty
jokes to her friends. She would
not even let me help her hurl
cow patties at the boy cousins.
But above all, I could never
become a bona-fide member
of the Bobbie and Sandy
Club, which consisted of two
members only: Bobbie was
president, big chief and top.
dog in all matters; our cousin
Sandy was vice president and
sergeant at arms.
Occasionally I was allowed
to do their dirty work (some-
body had to collect the cow
patties), but never permitted
to join.
I've long since let bygones
be bygones, though I was
scarred for life, and can't seem
to resist making sure that my
sister never forgets it.
But I have to admit she has
tried to atone. After we lost
our dad to suicide and our
mother to cancer, it was her
arms that held me, her voice
that soothed me, her spirit that
drew us close.
When my first husband died,
she flew to California, sent me.
to bed, comforted my children,
greeted guests and made room
in the fridge for the casseroles.
That summer she took me to
Mexico, and made me pose for a
picture with a live chimpanzee.
Years later, when I introduced
her to a "friend," she told me
that if I didn't marry him, she
would. So, of course, I did.
Every time we talk on the
phone, she makes me laugh so
hard my husband knows exactly
who I'm talking to. And when
she visits us in Las Vegas, as
she did the past two weeks, we
make up for lost time.
In 12 days, we covered a
lot of miles from the concrete
grandeur of Hoover Dam to the
neon lights of the Strip. We took
a side trip to California, so she
could hug my kids and go whale
watching on Monterey Bay.
The older we get, the more
I'm amazed at how much we're
alike despite our differences.
In some ways, we are opposites.
She's a nurse. I type for a living.
I love Otis, as in Redding. She
worships Elvis, as in Presley.
Which is why, the last night
of her visit, we took her to see
Cirque du Soleil's "Viva Elvis."
I wish you could've seen her.
She sat drop-jawed through
the entire production, swoon-
ing like a teenybopper.
Afterwards, she said it
was the best thing anybody
ever did for her. And she was
sorry she had treated me so
unkindly all those years. And if
I still wanted to join, she would
speak to Sandy and they would
welcome me into the Bobbie
and Sandy Club though the
name, of course, would remain
the same.

Jobs bill to stop teacher


'layoffs nears approval


By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press
WASHINGTON Last-
minute money to save the
jobs of tens of thousands
of teachers and other
public workers overcame
a Republican filibuster
Wednesday and sped
toward Senate passage.
The House, under pres-
sure to help cash-strapped
schools nationwide, was
being called back from
its summer break for an
expected final vote next
week.
The $26 billion measure
would help states ease
their severe budget prob-
lems and advocates said
- stop the layoffs of near-
ly 300,000 teachers, fire-
fighters, police and other
public employees. Though
scaled back, the bill also
would salvage a victory for
Democrats who have been
unable to deliver most
of the jobs help they and
President Barack Obama
promised.
The legislation advanced
by a 61-38 tally that all
but ensured it would pass
the Senate on Thursday.
House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi said she would call
the House back into ses-

sion next week to approve
the measure to get it to
Obama for his signature
before most schools reopen.
Many Republicans object-
ed to the expense at a time
of record budget deficits,
but moderate Republican
Sens. Olympia Snowe and
Susan Collins of Maine
cast the key votes to break
the filibuster as they
did last month in helping
Democrats pass a six-month


extension of jobless ben-
efits.
Wednesday's bill would
extend programs enacted
in last year's economic
stimulus law. The measure
comes on the heels of suc-
cessful efforts to extend
unemployment insurance
for the long-term jobless
and to provide a payroll
tax credit this year to
businesses that hire the
unemployed.

Job market
brightens a bit
WASHINGTON Job
prospects are looking just a
little brighter.
The service sector, which
makes up 80 percent of
the economy, grew for the
seventh month in a row,
and state aid to preserve
jobs for tens of thousands
of teachers and other public
employees cleared a key
hurdle in Congress on
Wednesday.
Of course, the job market
still has a long way to go. A
key employment report due
out Friday is expected to
show the nation actually lost
jobs in July, mostly because
of temporary census work
that came to an end.
"The good news is that
the economy is still moving
forward, but the bad news
is that it is moving at a fairly
moderate rate," said Sal
Guatieri, senior economist
at BMO Capital Markets.

Thick smog
engulfs Moscow
PEREDELTSY, Russia
- Moscow was engulfed
Wednesday by the thickest
blanket of smog yet this
summer, an acrid, choking
haze from wildfires that
have wiped out Russian
forests, villages and a mili-
tary base.
Passengers on
Moscow's subway said the
eye-stinging haze hovered
above the platforms, and
City Hall warned of health
risks from the smoke,
which is carrying harmful
gases including carbon
monoxide.
"I woke up before dawn
and thought I was going
to die of suffocation," said
Yadviga Pashkova, a frail,
62-year-old former school-
teacher who lives in cen-

because there was no way
out."
To the east, firefighters
focused on beating flames
back from a top-secret
nuclear research facility.
In the capital, President


Dmitry Medvedev fired
several high-ranking mili-
tary officials over what he
called criminal negligence
in fires that ravaged a mili-

Very stressful job -....^


can affect health


GOTT: At age
E0-plus, I took
a job that was
stressful to the
extent it caused sleepless
nights and loss of appe-
tite. I resorted to taking
an over-the-counter sleep
aid, which left me with a
headache and feeling slug-
gish in the morning. To
alleviate those symptoms,
I took Excedriri for the
headache and a caffeine
bump. At the end of the
year, my contract.expired.
I lost 20 pounds and was
exhausted.
I went to my physician
for a regular checkup.
Routine lab wbrk indicated
I had an elevated TSH (6).
My doctor asked about
fatigue, weight gain, hair
loss, brittle
nails, dry skin Stres
and more. I an en(
explained the role in
circumstances role i
of my for- affect
mer job and in a
because of my of wa
age, I was at
least perimeno- wors
pausal. I was many
still having COnd
periods every
three weeks
instead of four.
I felt the symptoms I had
indicated hypothyroid-
ism. I expressed my feel-
ings and was prescribed
levothyroxine, which was
to continue forever. Well,
I took it for six months
and saw no improvement,
except for a lowered TSH
level. I gained back the 20
pounds and weaned myself
off the medication. I still
noticed no change in my-
health.
My question is: Could
adrenal fatigue or exhaus-
tion from the stress and
being perimenopausal
be factors in the elevated
TSH? Could they normal-
ize on their own when the
stress is removed? I under-
stand there are cardiac
implications with levothy-
roxine. I don't suffer any
issues, but there is a family
history on both sides. At
what point does the risk
outweigh the benefit? I
currently feel fine, my nails
are longer than they have
been in years, and my hair
is OK, as is my skin. My
energy level is acceptable,
and I wish the 20 pounds
stayed off that I gained
back.
DEAR READER: I
can understand why your

One striking difference is
that weight gain is rela-
tively common. However,
the reversal in your case is
obviously job-related.

differences between adre-
nal fatigue and hypothy-
roidism. Adrenal fatigue

Hypothyroidism isn't gen-

skin, heat intolerance and
a craving for fats.
Stress plays an enor-
mous role in health, affect-
ing us in a variety of ways
and worsening many medi-
cal conditions. Therefore, I
cannot rule it out as having
a bearing on the symptoms
you have. My recommen-
dation is to have your TSH
retested to determine what
your readings are without
the levothyroxine. Discuss
the pros and cons with
your physician. Maintain a
healthful diet, get adequate
rest, reduce the stress in
your life, and exercise reg-
ularly. The body is a truly
miraculous thing. Give it
some time to recharge,
but don't hesitate to seek
medical intervention if
appropriate.

Are Americans now more


honest about their weight?


By MIKE STOBBE
Associated Press

ATLANTA Are
Americans becoming more
honest about their weight?
That theory could explain
why the gap appears to be
closing in what people say
they weigh and what actual
measurements report.
A new government tele-
phone survey released
Tuesday puts the adult obe-
sity rate at nearly 27 per-
cent and rising. A more sci-
entific survey has already
said the rate is 34 percent
and holding steady.
Experts believe the 27
percent is probably an
underestimate, because
it's based on what people
say. People tend to say they
weigh less than they actu-
ally do and say they are
taller than they are.
The fact that it's catching
up to the more accepted 3.4
percent estimate could sug-
gest people are becoming
more accurate when they
talk about their girth. It's
one explanation, anyway,
said Dr. William Dietz, of
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
"It is possible people
are paying more atten-
tion to their weight and
reporting it more accu-


rately," said Dietz, director
of the CDC's Division of
Nutrition, Physical Activity
and Obesity.
The new results are based
on a telephone survey of
about 400,000 people who
were asked their height and
weight CDC researchers
then calculate whether the
person is obese, following a
standard formula for body
mass index.
Under the formula; a 5-
foot-4 woman is obese if
she weighs 174 pounds or
more, a 5-foot-10 man fits
that description if he weighs
at least 209 pounds.
The study found that
nearly 27 percent of the
surveyed adults said they
were obese in 2009, up from
about 25.5 percent in 2007, a
small but statistically signifi-
cant increase.
Earlier this year, the
CDC released results from
another study that actual-
ly weighed and measured
5;700 adults. It found that 34
percent are obese; results
have been similar in the last
three surveys.
The differing surveys
mean the CDC is reporting
that obesity is increasing
-.and that it's not.
"We have somewhat con-
tradictory data," because


the studies were done differ-
ently and sampled different
populations, Dietz said.
There could be several
reasons why the telephone
survey produced different
results, said Dr. K.M. Venkat
Narayan, an EmoryUniversity
public health professor famil-
iar with the two studies.
For example, the phone sur-
vey included only people with
landline telephones, meaning
others with cell phones were
not part of the data, he said.
It could be that a significant
number of people who exclu-
sively use cell phones are
obese and not counted.,


As for people underreport-
ing their height and weight,
"it's not so much lying," but
rather that they don't regu-
larly get on a scale, Narayan
said.
The new report also
found that in nine states
at least 30 percent of the
adults were obese in 2009.
The states were Alabama,
Arkansas, Louisiana,
Kentucky, Tennessee,
Missouri, Oklahoma, West
Virginia and Mississippi, the
highest at 34 percent In 2007,
only Alabama, Mississippi
and Tennessee topped 30
percent.

Pregnant moms who overeat

at risk of making babies obese


By MARIA CHENG
Associated Press

LONDON Women
who gain too much weight
during pregnancy have big
babies, putting their chil-
dren at risk of becoming
heavy later on, a new study
says.
American researchers fol-
lowed all births in Michigan
and New Jersey between
1989 and 2003. They then
focused on women who
had more than one child, to
exclude the possibility that
women who were genetical-
ly predisposed to be obese
were simply passing those
genes onto their babies.
Among the more than
513,000 women' and their
1.1 million infants studied,
scientists found that women
who gained more than 53
pounds during their preg-
nancy made babies who
were about 150 grams (0.3
pounds) heavier at birth
than infants of women who
gained only 22 pounds.
The study was published
online Thursday in the medi-
cal journal Lancet and was
pdid for by the U.S. National
Institutes of Health.
"It's never too early to


"It's never too
early to start
preventing
obesity."

start preventing obesity,"
said Stephan Rossner, a
professor in the obesity unit
at Karolinska Hospital in
Sweden who was not con-
nected to the study. "It may
be uncomfortable for moth-
ers to eat less and change
their lifestyle, but after nine
months they will get a great
payoff for their children."
In the U.S., more than a
third of women of normal
weight and more than half
of overweight and obese
women gain more weight
than their doctors recom-
mend.
The Institute of Medicine,
an independent, nonprofit
organization that advises the
U.S. government, says nor-
mal-weight women should
gain 25 to 35 pounds during
pregnancy, while overweight
and obese women should
gain 11 to 25 pounds.
Heavier babies have a


significantly higher risk of
staying heavy throughout
their lives, said Dr. David
Ludwig, director of the
Optimal Weight for Life pro-
gram at Children's Hospital
in Boston, one of the study
authors. Big babies also have
higher chances of develop-
ing problems later in life
including asthma, allergies
and even cancer.
Ludwig and his co-author
found most women tend to
put on similar amounts of
weight for each pregnan-
cy, though they are often
heavier when they become
pregnant with subsequent
children.
Previous studies have
shown pregnant women
who pack on the pounds
suffer from complications
like diabetes and high blood
pressure, but little research
has shown what those
extra pounds could mean
for babies. In addition to
bumping up their chances of
becoming obese later, large
babies are also more likely
to get stuck in the birth canal
or need a cesarean section.
Ludwig said when preg-
nant women overeat, some
of those extra calories over-
stimulate the fetus' growth.

Boston adds
15-time All-Star
to'The Big Three'.
By HOWARD ULMAN
Associated Press
BOSTON The Big
Three of the Boston Celtics
are now a Very Big Four.
The Eastern Conference
champions, signed 7-foot-i,
325-pound Shaquille O'Neal
on Wednesday, adding the
15-time All-Star to a team
needing his size with cen-
ter Kendrick Perkins recov-
ering from knee surgery
that could sideline him until
February.
The deal with the free
agent center is for two years
and about $3 million, a per-
son with knowledge of the
negotiations said on condi-
tion of anonymity because
no details were released.
O'Neal joins the other
three big names Paul
Pierce, Kevin Garnett and
Ray Allen on a team that
went to the seventh game of
the NBA finals before losing
to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Since then, Boston signed
center-forward Jermaine
O'Neal.
Point guard Rajon Rondo
will also be coming off an
outstanding postseason.
"I am honored to be joining
the Celtics," O'Neal said in a
statement issued by the club.


Favre saga continues


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Minnesota Viking quarterback Brett Favre passes to an
Oak Grove High School football player on Wednesday in
Hattiesburg, Miss.


Quarterback says
he will play if
ankle is healthy.
By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
Associated Press
MANKATO, Minn. -
Ready for another flip-flop?
Brett Favre is planning
to play ,for the Minnesota
Vikings this season if his
surgically repaired ankle
allows it.
Vikirigs offensive coor-
dinator Darrell Bevell and
Favre's agent, Bus Cook,
both said Wednesday that
the veteran quarterback
plans to play if he is healthy.
He had surgery on the
ankle in May.
Bevell has been close
friends with Favre since
he was his quarterbacks
coach with the Green Bay
Packers.
"I know it's a decision that
he wrestles with," Bevell


said after Wednesday morn-
ing's practice as Favre was
throwing the ball around
with high school students
in Mississippi. "He's a great
player. He's a great compet-
itor. He mulls things over.
He's an emotional guy. So
he thinks things through
long and hard and takes
his time with his decision.
So I'm not surprised that
things started to come out.
We just have to wait and
see."
Bevell said he has spo-
ken to the 40-year-old quar-
terback recently, but not in
the last 24 hours. He said
it's been his understanding
that if Favre's ankle heals
well enough, he will return
to play for the Vikings this
season.
"That's what I've been
getting all along," Bevell
said.
Cook said Favre will visit
his surgeon, Dr. James
Andrews, next week for an


evaluation.
"He's working out really
hard and everything seems
to indicate that if he is
healthy and. can contribute
and play at the level that he
has become accustomed to,
he will play," Cook said.
The two-year contract
Favre signed last year calls
for him to make $13 million
this season and Cook said
he has not begun negotia-
tions on any adjustments to
the contract.
Outside Oak Grove High
School in Hattiesburg,
Miss., Favre told reporters
his decision is "not about
the money." He also said he
has been in touch with the
team and "they know what's
going on with me."
On Tuesday, a person
with knowledge of the situ-
ation told The Associated
Press that Favre had con-
tacted teammates and

New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez (right) is congratulated at home plate by Derek Jeter
after hitting his 600th career home run during the first inning of a baseball against the
Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday in New York.


RODRIGUEZ: Hits home run No. 600

their heads.
The rest of the team
also came out to greet
Rodriguez. After stepping
off the field, then coming
out for a curtain call, A-Rod
kept on receiving congratu-
lations in the Yankees' dug-
out.
At 35 years, 8 days,
Rodriguez joined, an elite
club that includes Barry
Bonds (762), Hank Aaron
(755), Babe Ruth (714),
Willie Mays (660)., Ken
Griffey Jr. (630) and
Sammy Sosa (609). -The
next youngest was Ruth at
36 years, 196 days.
The ball he hit was the
104th specially marked
one that had been used for


each of his plate appear-
ances since reaching
No. 599. The Yankees
immediately put commem-
orative T-shirts on sale at
concession stands for $25
each, and one stand behind
home plate sold out within
two innings.
The milestone homer
provided a lift during a try-
ing stretch for the Yankees,
who had lost three in a
row. Not only have they
watched the Tampa Bay
Rays pass them for first
place in the AL East, off the
field they are still mourn-
ing the recent loss of owner
George Steinbrenner,
beloved public-address
announcer Bob, Sheppard


and former manager Ralph
Houk.
Despite saying he's been
more relaxed than he was
when trying for his 500th
homer, Rodriguez went just
9 for 46 after homering on
July 22, the longest stretch
between Nos. 599 and 600
for any of the seven to
reach the mark. Mays was
next at 21 at-bats, accord-
ing to STATS LLC. A-Rod
went 28 without a home
run before 500.
"I know Alex is going to
be fine," Yankees manager
Joe Girardi said before the
game. "Maybe I lead him
off one day so he can hit the
home run in the first inning
and get it over with."

DEAR ABBY


Mom's kitchen floor remedy

is embarrassing to daughter


DEAR ABBY: When I
went to visit my mother, I
found her lying on the kitch-
en floor. I asked her what
she was doing there, and she
said the floor feels cold and
hard and soothes her back.
Abby, my mother has two
very expensive beds in her
home, and there is no rea-
son for her to lie on the floor.
It could be embarrassing if
a friend or neighbor should
pop in and find her there.
How do I get her off the
floor? NOT BEDRID-
DEN IN FLORIDA
DEAR NOT BEDRID-
DEN: You should be more
concerned with how things
are than how they "might"
be perceived by others. If
your mother is having back
trouble, encourage her to
discuss it with her doctor
or a chiropractor so she can
be examined to make sure
nothing is wrong. But if
nothing is, then leave your
poor mother alone. She's in
the privacy of her own home,
and she is hurting no one.
DEAR ABBY: We have
an ongoing discussion in
our office. What color ink is
proper for signing birthday
cards, sympathy cards, fare-
well cards, etc?
One co-worker continues
to use colors other than blue
or black. An older co-worker
says it's inappropriate to
use any other colors. I have
searched for an answer to


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorobby.com
this question with no luck.
Can you help? SEEING
RED IN OKLAHOMA
DEAR SEEING RED:
You seem to have a lot of
time on your hands in that of-
fice. What is being conveyed
is more important than how
it looks. To sign a sympathy
card in bright red might be
inappropriate because it is
jarring. For cards celebrat-
ing happy occasions, colored
ink is acceptable the ex-
ception being fluorescent ink
because it is hard to read.
DEAR ABBY: My aunt
and uncle are "large" people.
In the past we have had to
be extremely cautious about
where they sit when they
come visit. Our furniture is
mostly hand-me-downs and
not overly sturdy.
They have, on occasion,
broken the furniture be-
cause of their weight. We
have had to have our kitchen
chairs reglued, and once a
chair was destroyed beyond
repair. They have never ever
offered to make'amends for
the furniture they have dam-
aged.


We are about to order a
new dining room set and
living room furniture. Natu-
rally, we don't want these
broken. My husband has
suggested giving them only
sturdy folding chairs to sit
on, but I don't want to em-
barrass them or make them
feel unwelcome.
Is there a way to protect
our furniture without hurt-
ing or offending my aunt
and uncle? We don't have the
money to constantly replace
broken items. STRICTLY
ANONYMOUS IN THE
MIDWEST
DEAR STRICTLY
ANONYMOUS: To drag out
folding chairs for your aunt
and uncle to use would be
glaringly obvious. Consider
buying a couple of sturdy
chairs (and possibly have
them reinforced with metal
bracing) for them. When
you know they're coming,
"guide" them toward. the
chairs you want them to uje.
If you are questioned about
it, explain (kindly) that in the
past your chairs have been
broken or needed repair -
so these were bought with
them in mind because they
are sturdier an'l you. want
them to be comfortable.

Dawn of tilhe


South Carolina's Darlington Raceway, opened in 1950, is
the granddaddy of today's NASCAR tracks. Darlington's
success in the 1950s inspired a building boom of super-
speedways 50 years ago this year. (NASCAR photo)


Fifty years ago a new kind of track changed NASCAR racing forever'


It hasn't exactly been the most celebrated of
Golden Anniversaries, but 2010 marks the
50th year since NASCAR's original super-
speedway boom.
Back in 1960, three new superspeedways
joined the group of tracks hosting races for the
circuit now known as Sprint Cup, a list that
was dominated at that time by dirt tracks,
most of them a half-mile or less.
Atlanta International Raceway, now known
as Atlanta Motor Speedway, plus Charlotte
Motor Speedway and Marchbanks Speedway
in California, opened in 1960, joining the two
existing superspeedways on the circuit -
Darlington Raceway, which opened in 1950,
and Daytona International Speedway, which
opened in 1959.
Two other attempts at superspeedways had
failed in the 1950s. The one-mile paved oval in
Raleigh, N.C., opened in 1953 and was gone by
1958. The 1.5-mile, high-banked dirt oval
Memphis-Arkansas Speedway had just a
three-year run from 1954 to 1957.
But during the 1950s, Darlington Raceway
was wildly successful, and it was those
Darlington races that led a group of Georgia
businessmen to set about building a track in
Atlanta.
The men went to a race at Darlington and
came home with a dream to build a state-of-
the-art speedway in Atlanta and to bring
NASCAR racing to it.
About the same time, promoter Bruton
Smith and driver Curtis Turner were pursuing
similar dreams at Charlotte, and in Hanford,
Calif, businessman and farmer B.L.
Marchbanks was busy building a 1.4-mile
paved track that he named Marchbanks
Speedway.
Ed Clark, the current president of the
Atlanta track, points out that those early track
builders were true pioneers.
"Superspeedways were just coming into
being, and nobody knew what the future held,"
Clark said. Those people were pioneers to
even think about undertaking a mile-and-a-
half, high-banked race track. Now you look

National now Sprint Cup race at the brand-new
Atlanta International Raceway. (NASCAR photo)
back, and not only has it grown in the Atlanta
area but also nationwide, and NASCAR racing
has become a mainstream sport."
Clark said it's important to remember that
AMS, like the track in Charlotte where he
worked before coming to Atlanta, survived
many a hurdle in the early days.
"Nobody would lend you money," he said.
"Everything was under-funded. Everything was
rough and not very polished, but that speaks to
the core product and the appeal it had to peo-
ple. That and a few people who just diligently
worked and wouldn't give up are what got the
track and the sport to where it is now."
The tracks in Atlanta and Charlotte both
were opened with much work remaining to be
done. At Charlotte, paving went on right up
until race week, and the uncured asphalt came
apart during the inaugural World 600, forcing
teams to put giant screens on the fronts of the
cars to keep chunks of asphalt from breaking
the radiators.
Jack Smith of Atlanta was five laps ahead
late in the race when a chunk of asphalt
knocked a hole i'n his gas tank, putting him out
of the race and opening the door for Joe Lee


Johnson to take the win.
When Atlanta opened a few weeks later,
NASCAR officials, worried about a repeat of
the track problems at Charlotte, limited the
race to 300 miles.
But the track held up just fine, and Fireball
Roberts scored a popular win.
The down-to-the-wire work at Atlanta most-
ly involved getting the grandstands ready.
Concrete pouring went on right up until race
time.
Still, track officials and the people of Atlanta
were happy to have a race track all their own.
"It was a glorious, fun-filled day," Jack Black,
one of the original shareholders who later
became track president, said in an interview
several years ago. "It was a great race, and
there were lots of cars still running at the end."
Black said somewhere between 20,000 and
25,000 people witnessed the first race, but that
number was never for certain because all the
fencing wasn't in place and many fans walked
in for free.
Marchbanks was a different story. The
Southern drivers, for the most part, didn't
make the long, expensive haul to California.
The official crowd estimate for the first race
was just 7,000, and the track hosted just one
more NASCAR race before dropping off the
schedule.
But the tracks in Atlanta and Charlotte sur-
vived the tough early years and went on to
play key roles in the growth of the sport.
Races at Atlanta, Charlotte and Daytona
brought national media attention and the first
TV coverage to the then-fledgling sport of stock
car racing.
Clark, the Atlanta track president, said rac-
ers and race fans everywhere owe a debt to the
pioneers who kept the Atlanta and Charlotte
tracks in business through all the rough times,
preventing them from being lost to time like
Marchbanks, Raleigh and Memphis-Arkansas.
"It could have very easily happened," Clark
said. "A lot of people put a lot of personal time
into it that they weren't compensated for
because they believed in it and loved it."


Biffle Pocono win: 'It's for Jack'
Greg Biffle gave his car owner Jack Roush a
much-needed "Get Well" present by winning at
Pocono Raceway on Sunday and ending Ford's
year-long losing streak. It also ended a personal
64-race winless run for Biffle.
He got the win by using the same two-tire pit
strategy that Jamie McMurray used a week ago
in winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis
Motor Speedway.
Jeff Gordon was leading late, as Juan Pablo
Montoya was a week ago, but took four tires on
the final stop and took himself out of contention.
Gordon restarted 13th on the final run and bat-
tled back to sixth, while. Biffle bolted past Sam
Hornish Jr., who didn't pit, and cruised away
unchallenged over the final 21 laps.
But in Victory Lane and.in his winner's inter-
view afterward, Biffle said his victory seemed
destined to happen, as Roush was in the hospi-
tal recovering from injuries suffered in an air-
plane crash.
"I have to tell you that when it got to be five
[laps] to go I started thinking about it," Biffle
said. "I started thinking that this race was
meant to be. It's for Jack. And then I thought of
spending all the time I've spent with the Ford
people and how desperate they are to prove that
they've got good product. They've got great cars
and trucks, but they want to improve on the
race track, that they want to win. And then I
thought about all the 3M guys, but Jack mostly.
"I just thought, This is going to be a great
day if I can complete this thing."'
Safety questioned ... or not
Elliott Sadler walked away uninjured from a
savage crash that was described as one of the
worst-looking ever in NASCAR. His Ford struck
an area of the track not equipped with SAFER
barriers, and the impact knocked the engine
and transmission out of his car.
Sadler credited the safety features on his car
for his being able to walk away
"It's definitely the hardest hit I've ever had in
a race car," he said. "These new cars are built to
be safer, and if I can get out of that and walk
through that, I think it did its job."
After earlier incidents at Pocono, many driv-
ers have been critical of the lack of safety fea-
tures at the track, but this time drivers seemed
inclined to avoid saying anything critical of the
track. Last week it was revealed that Denny
Hamlin and Ryan Newman were fined for criti-
cizing NASCAR's handling of incidents on the
race track.
Said Carl Edwards: "I don't know what hap-
pened. From my standpoint, though, this is a
fine race track. I feel safe driving on it, but I
didn't see that hit."
Jeff Gordon offered some insight.
"I think the incidents speak for themselves,"
he said. "I think that there are times where
we've got to step up the technology and safety
at certain facilities. We've seen two incidents
here this year. I think it is going to be a wake-
up call for some improvements. It is a great
track here at Pocono, we love coming here, but;
there are definitely some areas where it could
be improved."
