Blood may be thicker than water; but don’t count on it.  Lawyers can be contracted on a contingency fee basis; but don’t count on it. Those lessons were learned by an Arizona woman who called the USD Senior Legal Helpline.  Her 86-year-old mother recently died in California, leaving an estate valued at $800,000, consisting of a house worth $490,000, and the balance in stocks and bonds.  The property had been held in a trust, with ...

Q: Our veterinarian recently diagnosed Addison's disease in our 8-year-old, spayed West Highland white terrier. Our dog was not doing well for several months. We took her to several veterinarians who simply treated her symptoms before receiving a definite diagnosis from our current veterinarian.

My wife, Kate Bird, lamented recently, "I will become 70 next September. I don't want to be 70 and I certainly don't want to celebrate it." She worried, "At 70, what do I have to look forward to? I'll probably need a pacemaker. My mother had terrible osteoporosis. Cancer has struck several relatives." Now that I have passed 70, let me say that I don't think I am destined for eternal paradise on this earth. ... [full story]

THE CHEF It was a cold November evening in 2005 and the Blue Heron Restaurant's grand opening was going smoothly. After all, chef Deborah Snow and manager Barbara White had operated the award-winning restaurant for six years at a nearby location. This redesigned 120-seat restaurant in the historic Old Town Hall in Sunderland, Mass., was the partners' dream come true. But the dream turned to a nightmare when White was urgently called to the kitchen. ... [full story]

(PART 1 OF A 2-PART FEATURE) About three years ago, White Oaks treatment center staff began noticing a new population of young people coming in for heroin detox. It is a predominantly white, middle-class group between the ages of 18 and 25, though there have been clients younger than that. They come from Peoria and also from smaller towns and more rural areas. Some of them live in nice, comfortable homes, either with their parents ... [full story]

Young boys study Hebrew in preparation for their bar mitzvah. A Jewish goldsmith designs jewelry in his shop. The rabbi reads from the Torah in the synagogue. All very common experiences in Jewish neighborhoods around the world, but ones you don't often, if ever, see in an Arab country. Welcome to Tunisia, a modern, moderate Muslim country perched jauntily at the tip of North Africa, where more than 2,000 Jews thrive in the midst of ... [full story]

I received a phone call the other day that was both enlightening and disturbing. A 60-plus reader wanted advice about caring for her older brother with myriad health problems. He lives out of town and his sister wanted to know whether she should move him closer in order to care for him. If she did, she wanted to know how to make the chore easiest on herself. She explained that she doesn't particularly like her ... [full story]

GRANADA, Nicaragua - Tucked away in the tropics of Central America, Nicaragua is suggestive of a gifted diva patiently waiting offstage to be discovered by the world, like a dazzling diamond in the rough, simply overlooked by the masses, sometimes trampled on, but surviving with pride and honor. Overshadowed by Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama and Guatemala, all high-profile and impressive neighbors, Nicaragua has been stranded in time, lost amid the jumble of North and Central ... [full story]

Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas was the National Football League's most valuable player during the 1991 season, feared for his breakaway speed, soft hands and ankle-breaking cuts. Heading into Super Bowl XXVI, Thomas had all the tools necessary to dominate. All the tools except a helmet. The all-pro, all-world, all-everything back spent the Bills' first two offensive plays of that game scouring the sideline for his misplaced head gear. Neither he nor his team ... [full story]
