Did your ancestor have syphilis?

Dear Annie: This is in response to “Bedwetter,” who is afraid to move in with his girlfriend for fear she’ll find out he still wets the bed. My oldest son had a problem with bedwetting and was unable to attend sleepovers because he didn’t want his friends to know he wore pull-ups at night. My […]

A large study of preteens in Texas found that about one-third of them had borderline or high cholesterol when tested during routine physical exams.

Gail Collins: The season of the twitch

In the June election, Davis voters have an opportunity to weigh in to prevent our fiscal demise. No, I’m […]

Be the change in youth sports

Considering the attention paid to the Davis High School volleyball coaching assignment and the impossible task handed to the school board, I was looking forward to an Enterprise review of John O’Sullivan’s “Changing the Game” presentation on Friday, March 21, sponsored by the Davis Parent University.

They want different things

Dear Annie: I’m in my early 50s and have been married to “Ralph” for two years. At first, he was attentive and romantic, sending flowers and writing cards. We went on frequent weekend trips where we would focus only on each other. In the past year, Ralph’s job responsibilities tripled, and so did his stress […]
