DEAR ABBY

Bargain hunter’s bragging tires her friend
news single (Abby).jpg

DEAR ABBY: I have a friend I’ll call Rose who likes to brag about how cheap she is.
Sometimes when we’re talking, she will interrupt me and ask, “How do you like my pants? I got them for a dollar at a yard sale.” Or she’ll say, “I got them for free.”
Rose likes to draw attention to herself every time she wears something new by asking how I like it.
Then she will tell me where she got it and how much it cost. I couldn’t be less interested, and I’m tired of hearing about her tacky, cheap clothes.

In the United States, 1 of 10 people over the age of 60 have been the victim of elder abuse, reports the AARP, a popular national elder advocacy group.

Rosemond, John.jpg

Q:  Our 9-year-old daughter recently announced to us that she doesn’t like school, doesn’t want to go, and doesn’t want to do the work. We’ve been unable to get a coherent reason out of her and her third-grade teacher tells us that she seems well-adjusted, has friends, and is doing above-average work, which is probably her best. She usually makes this complaint during homework time, when she encounters a difficult problem or doesn’t readily understand some explanation I’ve given. Lately, however, her complaints have become more frequent, anytime the subject of school comes up.

People love to feel like they’re part of something. Whether in grade school, college or participating in civic engagement, there are always plenty of clubs to join. Taking part in almost any activity includes attaching an identifier to oneself — he’s a baseball player, a cook, an avid reader, a vegan, etc.

Here’s our Top 10 Tech players at the ‘Joe’
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

The 50 greatest players in Joe Aillet Stadium history were announced last fall and are probably open for future debate.
Imagine what a list of Top 10 — yes, only 10, not 50 — Bulldogs in the history of the ‘Joe’ would attract in the debating circles.
Well, get ready.
Here’s our Top 10:
TERRY BRADSHAW: Naturally, any Top 10 rankings would kick off with the Blond Bomber. He earned a No. 1 NFL draft call after an All-American stay in Ruston.
FRED DEAN: The best defensive player in Tech annals. No argument needed.
