Ask Dr. Gott 4/3

DEAR DR. GOTT: I recently read about the 54-year-old person who was taking Zocor, and who complained to his doctor he was having muscle weakness. Well, I had been taking Zocor for two years, and a year ago my doctor changed me to lovastatin. For three months, I complained to my doctor of severe cramps, and sizzling in both legs and hands. I could hardly walk and couldn't go upstairs. I wasn't able to exercise and had pain across my lower back, into the hip area.

Dear Abby 4/3

DEAR ABBY: I was so glad to see the letter from "Irritated in Missouri" (Feb. 11), referring to people calling each other "retarded." I have a son with Down syndrome who is my absolute joy, and it breaks my heart to hear people use his disability as a derogatory insult. My son is my hero, and I am proud to be his mother. I cannot say his name without smiling.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, "up close and personal!"
