Good wedding-gown advice
Dear Readers: A while back, we printed a column on WEDDING-GOWN CARE and said that the dress should be professionally cleaned before storage. Joyce Winey wrote the following:
Dear Heloise: A few years ago, I found out that I needed to go on MEDICATION every day for the rest of my life.
What to say to police when they pull you over
DEAR ABBY: I'd like to respond to the recent letter from the woman with three college-age children, all of whom drive. She said she was concerned about their responses should they get pulled over by police. As a police officer for 15 years, I recommend the following guidelines for anyone who is pulled over by the police: (1) Shut off the engine and remain inside your car unless the officer requests that you exit. (2) Have your license, registration and insurance card in a convenient location so they are easily accessible. Fumbling around inside your car for ''lost or missing'' paperwork should be kept to a minimum. (3) Keep your hands on the steering wheel and avoid making moves that could be interpreted as sudden or threatening. (4) In the event other passengers are riding with you, ask them to refrain from making comments. (5) If the stop is at night and it's possible, pull over in a well-lighted area. Remember, we are humans, and we get nervous, too! (6) Turn on the interior light and keep it on in order for the officer to see inside your car. It shows that you are concerned for your safety as well as ours. (7) Do not argue with the officer. If you are treated unfairly, get the officer's name and badge number. You can follow up by notifying the officer's superior and filing a complaint against him or her. -- SGT. GISELLE DOSZPOJ, BRIDGEPORT, CONN. DEAR SGT. DOSZPOJ: Thank you for your sensible suggestions, which are far more inclusive than mine. You are not the only law enforcement person who responded to that letter. Read on: DEAR ABBY: As a retired police officer, I assure you that you were right on the money when reminding readers of the danger of law enforcement. There are not many jobs in America where one goes to work every day mentally exercising his or her action if confronted with an armed individual during the shift. Police live with this possibility and repress any fear in order to concentrate on the task at hand. I don't recommend a shift filled with paranoia any more than I recommend complacency.
