Ask Dr. Gott 1/28

DEAR DR. GOTT: I lost my father 25 years ago due to heart blockages. At that time, I became determined not to let that happen to me. I went on a vegetarian diet, avoided fat and ate a lot of carbohydrates. I cut out trans-fats, read labels and tried to always eat well. A few years ago, I started adding some meat back into my diet, but still being very careful of what I ate.

Dear Abby 1/28

DEAR ABBY: My husband believes an apology is required only if the action requiring one is intentional. For example, if my husband opens the windows and then turns on the sprinklers, allowing water into the living room, he thinks he doesn't need to apologize for causing the ensuing mess because he didn't do it intentionally.

Ask Dr. Gott 1/30

DEAR DR. GOTT: Since I had my nonfunctioning gallbladder removed six months ago, I continue to have occasional discomfort where it used to be. It can be random sharp pains to a dull ache and does not seem to be affected by food. It is always in the same spot (right upper quadrant, beneath the rib cage), and sometimes the pain will radiate to my back. Some of my co-workers also have similar symptoms that have continued since their gallbladder removals. I am a nurse, and we often talk about our various symptoms. Can you give me any insight into ...

DEAR ABBY: I'm a middle-aged man who has been married for 20 years. I own a duplex in a nice neighborhood.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Public-school discipline policies tie teachers' hands

A first-grade teacher asks what she can do about a girl in her class who is completely undisciplined. After nearly two months of this teacher's best efforts, the child's behavior is no better. She is defiant and aggressive toward other kids, and often gets out of her seat and crawls around on the floor. Several years ago she taught the girl's older sister, who also had numerous discipline issues. The home is chaotic, so the teacher doubts she can expect much - if any - help from the parents.

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.
