Kathy Bradley

The Escape is going to be six years old next month. Together we've traveled over 90,000 miles. Last week I took her in for a check-up. I'd called ahead and reserved a rental car so that I wouldn't have to sit in the customer service lounge reading out-of-date magazines and listening to other customers either talk loudly on their cell phones or snore for the several hours I'd been told the check-up would take.

Ask Dr. Gott 9/29

DEAR DR. GOTT: In your past columns, I have read where some of your readers have treated severe leg cramps with quinine sulfate. I used a quinine product by the trade name Q-Vel until it was taken off the market. Since then, I have used 250-milligram tablets of quinine sulfate by prescription from my family doctor to relive severe leg cramps. These leg cramps occur in my upper-thigh area after strenuous exercise or climbing on a ladder. I use the quinine tablets only prior to or immediately after exercising or climbing. I have been using quinine for over 30 years ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Foolproof apple crisp for the love of fall

On my ride to work on the first day of October, I turned on the defrost in my car for the first time this year. When I got to work, I turned off my air conditioning, relishing in the cool, rainy temperatures outside. This season, I've already enjoyed a few weekend brunches on my screened-in back porch, easy like a Sunday morning. I'm always sad to see summer go, but the food of fall and the excitement of the holidays quickly propel me forward.

Simpson, Bowles: Barrow is 'brave'

Our nation needs to get its fiscal house in order, and to do so citizens must fully demand leaders who are willing to put partisan differences aside and come together to present the American people with honest solutions and consensus proposals that put the national interest ahead of special interests. That is why we were so disheartened to learn that John Barrow is being criticized for his support of a budget based on the plan recommended in 2010 by a bipartisan majority of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which we co-chaired (Simpson-Bowles Commission).
