Dear Abby: I recently got back in touch with an old flame from 12 years ago. We never dated in the past because he was an alcoholic and not in a good place. A month ago, he added me on Snapchat, and we picked up right where we left off. He has been sober for three years, has a steady job, a …

Dear Abby: I'm nearing 57 and single. My mother, who is 78, lives in the same apartment complex. I always try to talk with her because we don't have much time together. All she wants to do is watch TV and read the paper. She allows me to talk to her for about a half-hour a day, then she has …

Dear Abby: I have a former high school classmate who, over the years, I've gotten pretty close to. He has been there for me when I was at my lowest, and I have been there for him as well. He lives several hours away, but we talked almost daily in addition to being on social media.
Dear Abby: I was deeply hurt after going to a barbecue at my oldest daughter's home. It was to celebrate my granddaughter's fourth birthday. My daughter's husband is from Thailand. He barbecued beautiful dishes of shrimp and something that looked like a gigantic crawfish. While my daughter i…
Healthy eating is not a black and white issue. It’s shades of gray — and sweets are definitely in the gray area. It’s true, sugary-filled treats shouldn’t be a major part of your diet. However, there’s also no reason why they need to be banned entirely. In fact, for many, swearing off favorite treats may cause feelings of deprivation, which can lead to cravings and over-indulgence. That said, the key to enjoying treats is balance.

The Idaho Senate has passed a bill criminalizing gender-affirming healthcare for minors, one month after the state House passed similar. KTVB reports the Senate approved the measure 22-12. It would bar transgender and transitioning children, or children with gender dysphoria, from receiving hormones or puberty blockers to alleviate their symptoms or help them with transitioning. Doctors prescribing these hormones or blockers could be charged with a felony and face prison time. The bill returns the House for consideration of Senate amendments. If the House agrees, the bill will go to Gov. Brad Little. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends gender affirming care to treat children struggling with gender dysphoria.
Kansas’ highest court has signaled that it still considers access to abortion a “fundamental” right under the state constitution. Multiple justices expressed skepticism Monday during hearings over two abortion-related lawsuits and peppered an attorney for the state with tough questions as he argued that a decisive statewide vote last year affirming abortion rights “doesn’t matter.” The court ruled in 2019 that the state constitution protects abortion rights, and voters affirmed that last summer. One of the two cases before the state Supreme Court deals with a 2015 law banning a common second-trimester abortion procedure. The other involves a 2011 law regulating abortion providers more strictly than other health care providers. Neither law has been enforced.
Indiana’s Republican General Assembly is advancing a measure to ban virtually all gender-affirming medical care for minors in the state. The Indiana House voted Monday 65-30 to approve the bill, which already cleared the Senate. The bill now heads to Indiana’s Republican governor, who hasn’t said publicly if he’ll sign it. If he does, minors in Indiana won't be allowed to access hormone therapies or puberty blockers in the state. People speaking in opposition to the healthcare restrictions say those types of treatment are often life-saving for trans kids. But backers of the legislation have raised doubts on the safety and reversibility of those treatments.
North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper has signed a Medicaid expansion law that was a decade in the making. Cooper celebrated on Monday the passage of expansion legislation from the Republican-controlled General Assembly with the bill-signing ceremony at the Executive Mansion. Cooper has wanted expansion for years, but Republicans came around to the idea recently. North Carolina has been among 11 states who haven’t accepted expansion. Cooper isn't thrilled with a provision in the bill that requiring the legislature to pass a separate state budget law first for expansion to be implemented. The governor said the law will be the "working families bill of the decade” once implemented.
