Husband likes to get high but keeps lying about it

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 10 years, together for 12. We have no children together, but I have four from a previous marriage. Two are grown and have moved out; two are still home and in high school. When we got together, my husband stepped right up and became a wonderful stepdad. He has always been a provider, a listener, an advice giver, friend, etc. He is the epitome of a great dad and husband. My family loves him, and I love him with my whole heart.


National Police Week was May 12 through May 18 this year to honor America's law enforcement community. President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962 and the week in which that date falls was designated as National Police Week. A Memorial Service is held in Washington D.C. yearly this week to honor officers who gave their life in the line of duty. Pictured from left to right are Hays County Precinct 1 Deputy Constable Eric Villalpando, San Marcos Police Officer Andrew Wisener and Hays County Sheriff's Deputy Caitlyn Alvarez representing the three law enforcement departments that serve the San Marcos area.

Historic building in Dunbar to get national historic designation
Historic building in Dunbar to get national historic designation

The Dunbar Home Economics Building, located behind the Dunbar Recreation Center, is in the process of receiving a National Register of Historic Places Designation. This will create more opportunities for grants to preserve this building, which was a part of the San Marcos Colored School — the only part that did not burn in the fire in the 80s. Pictured is the Dunbar Home Economics Building.
