DEAR DR. GOTT: This is in response to a letter from a 66-year-old female with bowel problems. She stated she often had to get to a bathroom quickly and, in one instance, shortly after having a salad at a restaurant.

But occasionally you will be sitting there, wondering exactly what to do next. A good rule of thumb is to show where your high-card values lie. Look at the South hand. You open one club, and partner responds three hearts, which by your partnership agreement is a splinter bid. North is showing at least game-going values with five or more clubs and a singleton or void in hearts. What would you rebid?

The last time Statesboro carried an 0-2 record into its third game of the season, the members of the 2014 Blue Devils were in diapers - if they had even been born yet.
