Drivetime Mahatma: Bike ahead in Conway: Pass at all?

posted: 02/06/2016 3:34 a.m. Discuss

Sir: In Conway there are many streets that are two lanes, no shoulders, and striped as no passing. That is, double yellow. Some of these streets are posted as "bicycle friendly." To be clear, if I come up behind a bicycle on one of these streets, moving at about 5 mph, it would be unlawful for me to move over to pass? By the way, is the 3-foot rule a law or a suggestion? -- Frustrated in Conway

I doubt many folks in Arkansas know Russell Langston ... well, at least not personally. But I'll bet nearly everyone has benefited from his tireless efforts.

Q I have never seen this addressed, so I'm seeking information on the subject of pre-emergent herbicide. How is it used and where is it available?

Anthlon Bell excels the old-fashioned way in a world of college basketball dominated by one-and-dones and two-and-throughs.

Dear Abby: Clutter of holiday decorations crushes man's Christmas spirit

posted: 02/06/2016 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Every December my wife virtually buries our home in Christmas decorations. It's not just the tree and stockings in the living room; she's not happy until there are Christmas towels and Christmas soap in the bathroom and another tree and knicky-knacky stuff downstairs. Not even a doorknob is safe from decoration.

Winter releases gain in quality, ticket sales

This probably isn't the worst time for casual moviegoers. There are plenty of good films left from last year still in theaters, and if you haven't yet caught The Revenant, Room, The Big Short, Youth or Carol, you still have time. And I expect that in the next couple of weeks you'll be able to see Mustang, 45 Years, Son of Saul, Anomalisa, The Lady in the Van and maybe Mojave, which was a movie I liked at last year's Tribeca Film Festival. (Caveat: I am the only one I know who liked Mojave.)

Dear Abby: Small displays tell larger tale of late husband's life

posted: 02/05/2016 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My husband passed away recently and I have some items of his I'm unsure how to tastefully display to honor his memory. They are his Bible, a U.S. flag in a triangular display box (he was a veteran), a set of deer antlers, works he authored, his guitar and family photos. I don't want to build a shrine, but I don't want to stick these things in a closet, either.

Dear Abby: Visits to mother-in-law feel like stepping into a fight ring

posted: 02/04/2016 1:39 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I am dreading an upcoming trip that includes a visit to my husband's mother, "Harriet." She is prone to "accidents" when I visit, and I always end up getting hurt. Harriet's "oops" moments usually involve my toes and feet, although the last time I was there she managed to strike my face.
