In 2001, national newscasts gave accounts of Devin Batts in Jacksonville, Fla., the 10-year-old girl who was lying on her bed, listening to the radio when a sheriff's department police dog suddenly leaped in and attacked her. A burglar-alarm company had given the K-9 unit a wrong address. Most reports minimized the wrong-address factor and criticized the Jacksonville police-dog policy that reportedly trained the dogs to "detect and hold by biting" rather than "detect and ...

Q: As she raised me during the Great Depression, my mother taught me how to get things done. Today, I feel more challenged than ever to handle simple tasks like returning unwanted merchandise. It can be intimidating when one encounters poorly trained sales representatives, confusing warranties and store policies that declare all sales final. Can you offer any suggestions? A: One suggestion for successfully returning merchandise is to quickly evaluate the attitude of the store ... [full story]

Q: Our close friends recently lost their 22-year-old son in an automobile accident. My husband tells me that the father has expressed strong guilt feelings because he had never been affectionate with his son. He also said he was sorry he had never told his son he loved him. The father said he was using the same parenting techniques his father used to raise him. He believed sons should grow up to be strong emotionally ... [full story]

It seems as if people will do just about anything to garner attention, fame or fortune. But those weren't Aron Lee Ralston's goals when he sawed off his hand with a makeshift multi-tool after becoming pinned by a boulder in the backcountry of Utah six years ago. All he wanted to do was live. His true grit has made him a celebrity, a best-selling author and a motivational speaker. In The New York Times recently, ... [full story]

Almost from the time it was established 75 years ago, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been America's most visited national park. No surprise here — it is, after all, stunningly beautiful, and what really runs up its visitor numbers is the fact that half of the country's population lives within a one-day drive plus, unlike other national parks, there is no admission fee.   A well-preserved log cabin greets visitors to the Great Smoky ...

CAIRNS, Australia — Several years ago, when I was in the outback at Kakadu National Park, cautiously trekking up a rough, rocky hill, enduring searing heat in the middle of nowhere with Warren Djorlom, my barefoot Aborigine guide, I remember thinking, What if I fall and break an ankle? Or, even worse, am bitten by a poisonous snake? How could I get help?   Tourists snap photos and tour the 1977 Beechcraft Queen Air at the ... [full story]

In a tiny five-room reconstructed frame house built in 1885 in Steveston, British Columbia, then the world's salmon-canning capitol, is a 1925 photo of a pretty young Japanese woman named Assayo in her wedding dress with her bridegroom Otokichi Murakmai. After they married, Otokichi built the adjacent boat works and became adept at constructing fishing vessels.   An exhibit at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery shows many of the labels that have gone on the products ...

Our Earth is the playing field, the staging ground, the backdrop of our lives, our hopes and dreams and all our human dramas. In the words of the late Carl Sagan, "Every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust ...

Dear John: My husband of 25 years is 56, and I am 51. I believe that "Leonard" is going through the change of life. His testosterone level has plummeted, while my sex drive is accelerating, due to the estrogen pills that I taken since my hysterectomy 10 years ago. Recently, he reduced his work schedule to only 20 hours a week. He appears to be mentally and emotionally well, and is enjoying his newfound time ... [full story]

Dear John: My fiancé, "Steve," asked me if I'd recently gone to lunch with an ex-boyfriend, and I said no. Well, I was lying and Steve knew this. He didn't act upset or anything, but he did ask if I wanted to go back to my ex-boyfriend. I said no, which is completely true. I think I have problems with trust and cheating stemming from that past relationship. How do I overcome my own insecurities ... [full story]

For the longest time and for reasons that escape me, this column used to be titled "Dogs, Cats and Other People." Not a week went by where I wasn't lambasted by some flummoxed cat person with a bone to pick over my gross neglect of felines. Who could blame 'em? Bad title. And now, with the column at last more aptly named "Dog Talk With Uncle Matty," I finally have cause to advise a cat ... [full story]

Q. My friends believe I am shy. They are right. Now, as a recent widow, I want to become more outgoing, make new friends, and be happier. I find myself hesitating to respond to strangers for fear of saying the wrong thing and looking stupid. How can I teach myself to be more outgoing? A. Become more comfortable by anticipating how to respond when meeting strangers. Learn to bond by remembering individuals are primarily interested ... [full story]

Parents always are asking me about how to spot or react to drug and alcohol use by their children. I've got a lot of suggestions. But an e-mail from a reader last week reminded me that sometimes the most effective advice or insight I can offer is with the practical experiences of teenagers themselves. Dear Mr. Moyers: I am 16 years old, and my name is Jac Z. I'm from a big town in the ... [full story]
