DEAR DR. GOTT: Are generic prescription drugs from India safe to use?
NEW YORK - A construction crane collapsed Friday on New York's Upper East Side, smashing into a 23-story apartment building as it fell to the ground, killing one construction worker and seriously injuring two others.
SAN ANGELO, Texas - Now, the waiting begins. A Texas Supreme Court ruling paves the way for members of a polygamist sect to get their children out of foster care, but it remains unclear when that might happen or what kind of restrictions might be imposed.
In the year ahead, there is an excellent possibility that you could form a dynamic friendship that will have a big influence in your life. This person will bring out the best in you and take you to places you've never been.
William Shakespeare wrote in one of his sonnets: "But if the while I think on thee, dear friend, / All losses are restor'd and sorrows end."
MURRIETA, Calif. - For weeks, the three wives of Mansa Musa Muhummed and most of their 19 children have been telling a jury countless stories of torture and starvation that they kept to themselves for years.
CHICAGO - Many Americans allowed themselves to fantasize about large-screen TVs, European vacations and other luxuries when they learned of the federal rebates they'd be getting this spring and early summer.
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. - The 35-story indoor ski mountain would soar over bucolic pine barrens and farms at the twin forks of Long Island.
RALEIGH, N.C. - The reality of rising fuel prices cost students in a Tennessee school district their bus ride to school this week on the last day of the year.

PARIS - Americans are shell-shocked at $4-a-gallon gas. But consider France, where a gallon of petrol runs nearly $10. Or Turkey, where it's more than $11.
In the year ahead, you'll be fortunate to be included in a number of arrangements or situations initiated by others. What you do with them is up to you, but the opportunities will be there to advance yourself greatly.
DEAR DR. GOTT: I recall my mother in her later years requesting I trim her toenails, as she wasn't agile enough to perform the task herself. Her nails were so thick and yellow that I had to go for the wire cutters, as clippers would not suffice. Now I am getting in that same situation. Are you aware of a treatment or cure?
DEAR ABBY: On a recent trip to Europe I learned firsthand the meaning of the term "ugly American," which stems partly from the loud, obnoxious voices we sometimes use in public.
