In the 1880's, railroad magnate John Williams consolidated a number of small coastal North Carolina railroad lines into the Seaboard Railroad (SB).

DEAR DR. GOTT: My sisters, brother and I have been caring for our 89-year-old mother for the past 15 years as she has slowly declined with dementia. The doctor has diagnosed her as having Alzheimer's disease. In January of 2005 our mother's condition worsened enough to warrant help from Hospice.

DEAR ABBY: I'm in a relationship with a man I'll call "Dominick," who was arrested a few years back, but he refuses to tell me what he was arrested for. I have two children, and I don't want to continue this relationship if Dominick is a child molester.
