Federal judge appears skeptical of new border law

A federal judge is expected to rule quickly on the constitutionality of a Texas law about to go into effect that institutes new state penalties for illegal border crossings. During a hearing last week, U.S. District Judge David Ezra said he had concerns that other states would follow Texas’ lead in creating their own immigration laws – a power given exclusively to the federal government under the U.S. Constitution.

Enjoying the 'Swifty Bowl'

SWIFTY TIME ! With all the crazy events going on in the world these days, I can’t resist adding my contribution to the list. The past two weeks have seen an incredible increase in the attention given to “the one and only“, TAYLOR SWIFT. To be honest with you, I couldn’t pick her out of a group of 3 girls in my neighborhood, or wouldn’t know her voice from a tv singing contest, but I got to give her credit for providing us with a breath of fresh air from all the world’s problems. From what I can see, she’s been a pretty healthy role model for our young girls (as well as their Moms and even Grandmas), and she’s obviously a very pretty, talented, and smart individual, who has earned the support of fans all over the world for the past 16 years. There’s only one other artist in my lifetime who was able to create this kind of following - E L V I S. After 60 years, it’s about time we have a new “Super Star”, and this time it’s a gal getting all the attention. Congrats ! This year’s “SWIFTY BOWL” will be one for “The Ages” Dave Guenther

Dear Abby

Boy’s poor eating habits frustrate his grandparent

DEAR ABBY: I have a close relationship with my grandchildren and their parents. My 12-year-old grandson eats nothing except fast food and refuses everything else. His parents allow it and even have food delivered for him. His 8-year-old sister watches closely and is starting to head in the same direction. What they do at home is one thing, but it’s a problem for me when they visit, especially for three or four days. Help! – FRUSTRATED COOK DEAR COOK: Have the child’s parents considered that their son may have an eating disorder? If they haven’t, it may be time for them to discuss his eating habits with his pediatrician. Although some children may be spoiled and catered to, others may need medical or psychological intervention. Because this presents a problem for you when your grandchildren visit, rather than waste the food they refuse to eat, have their parents send their food with them.
