2A THE PALM BEACH POST THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1997 Newsmakers Gov. George, ex-prez's son, making another Texas run Palm Beach Post Hire Services What a difference a campaign can make. When George W. Bush ran for governor in 1994, he was an untested candidate who had to persuade Texans f fV ne was more than just a brash -, 1 businessman with a famous :.v V it Ma' S. ' - . . t . I .. f . J "i': father who wanted to lead Texas. Now, as the Republican incumbent crisscrosses the state seeking reelection, he is looking out on a political landscape that is dramatically different. His approval ratings are high and Texans don't really think of him as just the It's prime time for primates NOVA ARIPUANA, Brazil - There will be no more monkeying around for Marc van Roosmalen. The Dutch primatologist set out in the Amazon to find a new species of monkey. Instead, he found four species, including the callicebus genus, or the zog-zog (above). While he was at it, van Roosmalen also discovered a new species of porcupines. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bush Septuplets mark 2-week birthday; outlook still good Doctors say each of the seven babies has a distinct personality. The Associated Press DES MOINES, Iowa With their lungs and digestive systems coming along well, the seven little McCaugheys are also developing something else their own personalities. The history-making septuplets born to Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey marked their two-week birthday Wednesday in fair condition at Blank Children's Hospital. The babies' outlook still is very good, said Dr. Holley Bzdega, one of five neonatologists caring for the babies. "They've passed some critical points. There are still several hurdles to jump tolerate food, gain and grow at a regular rate, more mature in breath: ing and heart rate," she said. Since their birth Nov. 19, nurses and doctors have noticed distinct differences in the babies. '. Kenny is a couch potato with chubby cheeks. "He looks like he's in a Lazy Boy recliner. He kind of likes to lie back and grin," Bzdega said. Alexis is quiet and patient, while Natalie is stormy. Kelsey, the smallest of the bunch, is "getting downright feisty," Bzdega said. "She's a wiggle-worm who likes to lie on her tummy and wiggle about until she gets comfortable." Nathan is peaceful if left alone. Brandon is easygoing and likes to lie on his tummy and suck on a pacifier designed specifically for premature babies. And Joel is independent. The babies have begun to gain weight They lost between 5 percent to 15 percent of their birth weight about four days after their birth, which is a normal a sign that their kidneys were functioning. As of Tuesday, the babies weighed nearly as much as their birth weights, which ranged from 2 pounds, 5 ounces to 3 pounds, 4 ounces. ; They will remain in the intensive care unit until they're ready to go home in January, Bzdega said.; Ban will give Britain beef-less Ghristmas The Associated Press LONDON Just in time for the holiday season, Britain announced a ban Wednesday on rib roasts, T-bone steaks and all other beef on the bone after new warnings about mad cow disease. Restaurants now must rethink their menus, and butchers will have to disappoint customers who like a nice rib roast for holiday dinner parties. There will be no beef bones for soup stocks, and man's best friend will wag his tail in vain. "Christmas is coming and we usually sell a lot of ribs of beef," said butcher Joseph Steele, whose shop in a quaint byway of Hampstead, north London, caters to a well-heeled clientele. "I would say 40 percent like rib of beef, sirloin on the bone, T-bone," Steele said. "It will be a big disappointment to them." The government opted for the ban after its scientific advisers reported a risk that material contaminated with bovine spongiform encephalopathy mad cow disease could reach the human food chain through bone marrow. In announcing the ban to the House of Commons, Agriculture Minister Jack Cunningham called the risk of infection "very, very small," and said 95 percent of beef is eaten off the bone. The ban will take effect in a week. Like many British butchers, Steele weathered the original mad cow scare in March 1996, when the government announced a suspected link between mad cow disease and a new strain of Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease, a brain-wasting disease that has killed at least 20 people in Britain. son of former President George Bush anymore. Recent polls show him the clear favorite in a race against Democratic Land Commissioner Gany Mauro, and a number of Texans think he ought to run for president in 2000. Political pundits think he's unbeatable, though Mauro strongly begs to differ. George isn't the only Bush seeking elected office his brother, Jeb, is a candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Florida. Little Texas getting smaller The Country Music Association's 1994 group of the year will break up at the end of December, founder Tim Rushlow said in Wednesday's Dallas Morning News. Rushlow said there are no creative differences or infighting within the six-member band, formed nine years ago. .''We just feel like it's time to let this thing breathe," he said. A Castro on tourist duty Raul Castro, Fidel's brother and vice president of Cuba, is in Rome as a tourist. The Cuban embassy said Castro arrived Tuesday night from Beijing and has asked to see several landmarks, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Pope John Paul II is scheduled to visit Cuba Jan. 21-25. Raul Castro has been endorsed by Fidel as his successor. Big house up for big bucks Untouched for decades, a mansion built by the Vanderbilt family of industrialists is up for sale at $30 million, making it the most expensive house in New York. The five-story limestone and pale yellow Roman brick residence known ias the Vanderbilt Fabbri mansion is admired by architectural and real estate experts because it has all of its original detail. The house features a railing ornamented with lions heads and a sweeping staircase to the second floor with a .banister of Louis XTV-style bronze candelabra with Cupids almost 6 feet high. Another highlight is the music room containing a Votey pipe organ that occupies an entire wall. t Houston's 'cousin' on the run !
