Q. I am a recently-separated single father with primary custody of my six-year-old daughter. Her mother has her every weekend and sees her weekly during activities and dinner. Her mother recently started dating a man and their posts on Facebook include them drinking and partying on weekends when she has our daughter. Should I be concerned?
This question has two somewhat connected issues to it, panelist Mike Ramsey said.
“One, the father is worried about the supervision of his...
Some weeks ago, my husband and I invited another couple to our home for dinner at 6 p.m. I hadn’t seen them in years and my husband didn’t know them. They got to know each other over a nice dinner.

Musikfest, named the “Best Music Festival in North America” by USA Today’s 10best.com, is held in...
“Spider-Man: Far from Home” is the equivalent of a 1950s science-fiction drive-in flick.
One big difference is that “Spider-Man: Far from Home” has a $160-million budget.
The budget for “Plan 9 From Outer Space” (1959) was $60,000.
In “Spider-Man: Far from Home,” there’s a student field trip, but this being the 21st century, rather than going to the area planetarium, as in “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955), it’s a trip to Venice, Austria and Prague.
There’s a teen...
