Dear Abby 4/6

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 15-year-old girl in high school. Two days ago I went to my friend "Kate's" house to work on a school project. After we started working on it, Kate's sister, "Nell" - who is 9 - accidentally stepped on the poster board and bent it a little. It was something that was easily fixable, but Kate lost it. She started yelling and verbally abusing Nell.

Bridge 4/6

The opener bids one heart or one spade. When responder has at least four-card support for his partner's major, he normally immediately announces his excellent support. But with the right hand, he should adopt a two-step process, first making a strong jump-shift. This shows some 13-16 high-card points with either an excellent one-suiter (a six-card or longer suit headed by at least the K-Q-J), or a prime two-suiter (in principle, five-plus cards in his suit and four-plus cards in opener's suit).

Ask Dr. Gott 4/6

DEAR DR. GOTT: I can't get this on paper and to you fast enough. In a recent column an ovarian cancer, a survivor described pain diagnosed by her oncologist, correctly, I feel certain, as neuropathy. I, too, am a cancer survivor (breast) for nearly five years. I had the benefit of wonderful doctors who took time to explain everything they could about chemotherapy and its side effects. They did not, however, know or think to mention the pain that would set in just after the chemotherapy ended and which continues in a much lesser form today.
