Dear Mahatma: I live near Murray Park, where there are many incidents of people doing doughnuts. It's also common to have loud motorcyclists speeding on Rebsamen Park Road. Why are police officers regularly stationed along Rebsamen in the day when there is little evidence of law enforcement late at night when the real problems occur? -- Proud City Taxpayer

Low, fast-moving rain clouds punctuated by intermittent showers couldn't keep nearly 100 people and Channel 10 television from Springfield, Mo., from attending the memorial rally and float for the late 3rd District Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt along the Buffalo National River near Pruitt last weekend.

Q I recently heard that having cedar trees around can cause your peach trees to not produce fruit. Is this true and how much distance should be between the trees?

DEAR ABBY: I'm a teenager and I want to grow up fast. My boyfriend, "Jared," and I are very serious, and we want to have a baby. I know that sounds crazy, but we talk about it all the time and we're ready for it.

Q. Whatever happened to Mr. Big Shot Movie Man? We haven't heard from the old boy in quite some time and I rather enjoyed his occasional drawings back of the curtain to expose the sausage factory-esque workings of the MovieStyle section. What have you done to him? I suspect that he was a little too frank and transparent for the powers what be.

DEAR ABBY: My sister-in-law and her live-in boyfriend, "Bud," get together with us for dinner and outings. We enjoy each other's company, but over the last couple of years he has been making disparaging remarks on the subject of politics. We do not belong to the same political party, and his remarks make our blood boil.

DEAR ABBY: My in-laws are fabulous. They love me and think the world of our 2-year-old daughter, "Hayley." They do anything to support us.
