Q I planted a jalapeno pepper plant next to a tomato plant this year. The resulting fruit looks like an upside-down tomato. Did the two plants cross? I was not aware this was an issue, but I am new to gardening.

Otus the Head Cat: Ex NLR mayor's mug won't be rockin' sculpture

Dear Otus, We have a spectacular view of the Big Rock Quarry bluffs from our condo on the south side of the river. We're a little concerned now that they plan to sculpt the thing into "Mount Rockmore." Is the sandstone even suitable for that? Do they plan to use dynamite on it? And who do they plan to carve other than Bill Clinton? I hope it's not Pat Hays. Does the public get to vote? -- Ralph Patrick, Little Rock

DEAR TOM AND RAY: I bought my used 2000 Nissan Xterra almost three years ago. Every once in a while it did this weird thing where all the dashboard functions froze. The tachometer, speedometer, temperature gauge, fuel gauge and digital odometer all stopped working. The odometer would, at first, be random nonsense. Then it would gradually fade away. It seemed to be happening when the car got hot, so I used my windshield cover and parked it in the shade most of the time, and it stopped happening.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm headed for college shortly, and I can't help but worry about the pressures I'll face as a Christian. It's a large state university, and from what my friends tell me it's not a very easy place to be a Christian. Am I making a mistake going there?
