AP IMPACT: Environmental risks keep ’mothball fleets’ of retired warships at anchor

BENICIA, Calif. - From afar, the ghostly warships recall a fierce phalanx ready for battle. A closer look, though, shows the rust and rot of ships unfit for duty or even dismantling, a quandary that is costing taxpayers millions of dollars and could cause environmental misery that will cost millions more.

Bridge 7/6

In yesterday's column, I mentioned an advance control-bid (cue-bid). One player makes a bid, usually in a new suit, that says he is raising his partner's suit to game and that he has a fitting hand if partner is thinking about a slam. Here is another example.

Ask Dr. Gott 7/5

DEAR DR. GOTT: I'm a 53-year-old man, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 200 pounds. My waist is 33 inches, and I am built like an athlete. I have never smoked, bike 20 to 40 miles a day, usually doing the first 20 in an hour. I swim both in the ocean and the pool, lift light weights and surf occasionally. I also work in the construction field and do manual labor to keep in shape, even though I am the architect and builder of each project. Having said that, I have been to hell and back, surviving cancer.

Dear Abby 7/5

However, that mother should be encouraged to attend parenting classes or speak to her son's pediatrician regarding her problem with how to discipline her son. I am very concerned for the child's well-being if she even has to ask if it's OK to smash his toys with a hammer. - A MOM WHO CARES
