DEAR ABBY: I joined the Navy after I learned I was becoming a father. I didn't want to be a husband or father, but I did both. In 2010, my wife died. My feelings about being a husband and father never changed.

LET'S TALK: 'I'm sorry' is season's greeting

On Books: Clean off shelves, stuff the stockings

posted: 12/10/2017 2:16 a.m. Discuss

I gave away a few thousand books this fall, mostly to the Central Arkansas Library System but to a few other institutions and individuals as well, clearing out more than half of our shelf space and physically and psychically lightening the burden that pins us to the world. I feel good about it now, though I admit it was difficult to begin the process. I have always lived with walls of books, and stripping the cases in my office at first felt dangerously wrong.

Drivetime Mahatma: State quick to fix signs at on-ramp

posted: 12/09/2017 3:08 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: The new on-ramp at Cantrell Road and Interstate 430 is an engineering marvel, but signs directing traffic to the ramp are deceptive and dangerous. I followed the sign pointing to the right, rounded the bend at merging speed and was in somebody's driveway! I slammed on my brakes and narrowly avoided a terrible accident. The people living in that house must be tired of hearing screeching tires in their driveway! -- John
