Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am confused about sleep aids. I am 81 years old and in very good shape. I take five to six Benadryl every month to help me sleep. Now you mention Melatonin. Is that better? You mention Ambien, but that is a prescription. Is it safe for me to continue with Benadryl? When I have used them up, should I buy Melatonin?

Bulloch History – column

Captain John White dropped off Sir Walter Raleigh's famous Roanoke Island colonists in 1587 and then went back to Britain. When he returned with supplies and more colonists, the colonists were gone.

Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: What is the best way to dry dishes? I mean, where would there be the fewest germs, and what would be the most healthful approach for the people using the dishes? One person I talked to will wash the dishes, take a towel and dry the dishes, then put them away. I say put them on a drainer, let them air dry, then put them away. Who would you say is correct?

DEAR ABBY

DEAR ABBY: My sister, "Cindy," and some of her friends have been playing the "choking game" where you deprive yourself of oxygen by tying something around your neck in order to get high. They say it's safe because they do it with someone else there to make sure they're OK. However, last week there was an article in the paper about a boy who died doing it.

Room to reminisce

In a world filled with strife and negativity, a visit to Roy and Deborah Thompson's "Triple T Ranch" takes one back to a simpler time, when kids played cowboys and Indians, when families ate dinner together, when things like jobs, technology and crime didn't intrude as much as they do today.
