"It was the favorite spot for my wife and I to dine out before we had children."

Not "I." "Me." The sentence requires the objective pronoun.

Facing deficit, Henderson State University seeks $6M from state

In one of my FB groups, a former Henderson student posted that she was seeking a grant or loan opportunity so she can pay her $1,500 debt to Henderson. The college won't release her transcripts until she settles the account and the delay prevents her from enrolling at a different university. Why could she even take classes at Henderson without paying tuition? (And how is she financing her new college, but that's a different matter.) My alma mater would drop students if they didn't settle their bills by the second or third week of the semester. Now taxpayers need to foot the bill. Neither fair nor prudent.

Health insurance premiums up 5% for state workers

Ditto to previous two comments. Our employer-provided family coverage is $1,600/month, of which we pay half. Our aggregate deductible is $3,000, we don't have family/individual deductible. Last year, we paid twice as much in OOP medical costs (insurance premiums, deductible and co-pays) as we did in federal income taxes.
