DALLAS (AP) — Jail time while staying in office doesn’t sound like a good idea to some East Texas constituents of Drew Nixon, the state’s first sitting senator to be incarcerated.
Nixon’s decision to finish his Senate term and his plea to be allowed to serve his six-month sentence in a work-release program and in a jail near his Carthage home are hot topics in the Panola County town of6,500 residents.
Nixon’s lawyer has requested that the lawmaker spend only nights in jail, allowing him time for senatorial duties and his accounting practice.

Dear Abby: Please allow me to give your readers some lifesaving advice about fire: Take is seriously. Every year the National Fire Protection Association chooses a special theme for Fire Prevention Week, to focus needed attention on the fire problem. For 1997, it’s “Know when to go! React fast to fire.’’ It’s the basis for an educational campaign to get people thinking about fire before it happens.
We selected “Know when to go! React fast to fire” because it’s vital that people understand that fire and smoke alarms must be taken seriously, wherever you may be. Please ask your readers to take these simple steps:
• When in public buildings, such as restaurants, malls, etc., always locate the two exits nearest you. If you see blocked exits, or doors that are chained, report it immediately to
Elementary and Lone Star
Monday — breakfast: frosted donut or cinnamon toast; lunch: pepperoni and cheese pizza, toeeed salad with ranch dressing, buttered com. banana half and
someone in charge. (Call the fire department if it isn’t promptly corrected.)
• If you hear a fire alarm, react immediately. Don’t wait to see what others do. In most cases, the safest action is to leave die building. Wait until the fire department gives you clearance before you go back inside.
• When staying in hotels, always familiarize yourself with the escape plan posted on the door of your
room. Locate the two exits nearest you and check the doors to make sure they’re unlocked.
• Set a good example for your children. In a calm and positive way, point out exits and talk about the safest response in the event of a fire. Have a home fire-escape plan and practice it twice a year. If the alarm does sound, stay calm — but leave quickly.
Obviously, there is a great deal more information on fire safety. However, these key points will go a long way toward preventing fire injuries and deaths. Thank you, Abby, for sharing them with your readers. With your help, we’re working to reduce the fire loss problem in the United States and all over the world.
George D. Miller, President, National Fire Protection Association
Dear Mr. Miller: I’m pleased to help you publicize a message as important as this one. Too often people underestimate the speed and growth of a fire. They think there’s plenty of time to escape, but in a fire, time is the enemy. It’s important to plan ahead for an. emergency, to know when to go — and to act immediately. It can make the difference between life and death.
Dear Abby I’ve been married for eight years and have always had problems with my mother-in-law. I’ll call her “Girdie.”
Last week, Girdie came over to our house, uninvited, with all of her church friends, to parade through “her son’s house” to show it off. Abby, she walked right past me after I opened the door and began her
tour. She went into all of the bedrooms and bathrooms, and I felt like it wasn’t even my home anymore.
Is there any way to gracefully hint that her actions are not appreciated with starting World War III?
Frustrated in Clovis, Calif.
Dear Frustrated: Your mother-in-law appears to have the hide of a rhino. However, when personality types Uke hers are challenged, they often become extremely sensitive to criticism. Therefore, your husband should tell his mother that she placed you in an embarrassing situation with her unannounced visit and by bringing strangers into your home without first consulting you. He should also insist that she never do it again.
Murder rate lowest in 25 years
WASHINGTON (AP) — Serious crime is on the decline in America, due largely to the aging of the baby boom generation and the effects of a harsher judicial system.
FBI statistics released Saturday show .crime was down in 1996 for a fifth year in a row. The murder rate fell to its towest level in more than a quarter of a century.
“Part of this is demographic: Many baby boomers are now in their 40s and have mellowed out. They are not

committing the high-risk violent and property offenses they did IO years ago,” said professor Jack Levin, director of the Program for the Study of Violence at Northeastern University in Boston.
But Levin added: “That’s not the whole picture. The other part is that we are doing all sorts of things to reduce crime: Locking away more violent prisoners; going after small offenses so they don’t lead to large offenses.
“We arc taking the guns off the

streets in high-crime areas; we’ve formed partnerships between police and residents. There have been large-scale grass-roots efforts in major cities, and the total effort is paying off.’’
But James Alan Fox, dean of criminal justice at Northeastern, warned that the new numbers are “reason to be hopeful, but not reason to be overconfident.’’
