Pain pills not the medication for healthy marriage

Dear Annie: Please help me. My husband, whom I love very much, is addicted to pain pills. It's been more than a year.

Public unions

Tuesday's recall election in Wisconsin, where backers of public unions failed to unseat Gov. Scott Walker after he cut collective bargaining rights, commanded much of the spotlight, but voters in San Jose and San Diego, Cal. also dealt major blows to public unions by voting to cut the pension benefits of public workers in those two cities. Many labor experts see a rising tide of such moves as cities and states are now facing the harsh economic realities of the rich deals they bestowed upon unions for so many years.

Editorial: Traffic light needed

Most, although not necessarily all, people in Bethune appear to want an actual traffic light at the intersection of U.S. 1 and S.C. 341 rather than the blinking red and yellow lights there now or a proposed four-way stop.
