Youthful Eagles looking for leaders

Bridge 2/9

John Keats wrote, "Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid."

Ask Dr. Gott 2/8

DEAR DR. GOTT: In early 1997, my enlarged prostate was removed. My PSA was barely detectable in 2001, but in late 2003 it was 0.5, and in early 2005 it was 1.4. Our local radiation oncologist recommended immediate radiation treatments, saying his cure rate indicated 35 percent to 50 percent odds of a cure in my case with less than 5 percent permanent side effects. I consulted an oncology-urology team at Hershey Medical Center and was informed the cure rate was 20 percent with possible side effects of colon damage, incontinence, etc. Whom do I believe? Hormone therapy ...

Dear Abby 2/8

DEAR ABBY: May I respond to the assertion that letting the 6-year-old drive a golf cart is unsafe (Dec. 31)? Six-year-olds routinely drive go-carts, motorcycles and the like recreationally.

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions.
