Dear Abby for Feb. 18

DEAR ABBY: You were wrong to advise “Starting Anew in Ohio” (Nov. 7), the mother of a 10-year-old girl who wanted the bigger bedroom in their new house, to have her kids draw straws. When the girl made the request, her older brother said he didn’t care. The time to have drawn straws was when…

DEAR ABBY: I live in a fairly well-to-do neighborhood on a cul-de-sac. There has been an increase in the traffic on my street, and I suspect it’s because a neighbor’s adult son has been selling drugs. Most of the cars are driven by young people who park for five to 10 minutes at the most, an…
