THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
I'm a divorced single mother with two boys. My first son is 16. His father passed away when he was just three. My second son is 12. His father moved about an hour away after our divorce three years ago. My older son has been involved in summer sports, but my younger son has not been able to do that because he spends time here with me and much of the summer with his dad. Last night he was complaining about it and accused me of being the reason he can't join the team. I'm trying to figure out how I can accommodate that. If he joins a team in the community where his dad lives, I would not see him all summer. That would be hard for me, but I also don't want him growing up thinking that I stopped him from doing something he wanted to do. Are there other parents who have gone through this? I'm looking for some help on this one. Not sure if you can help, but I wanted to at least ask.

The famed "Typhoid Mary" infected more than 50 people by cooking for them. "Typhoid Mary" was a real historical person who became notorious in the early 1900s. She was an Irish woman named Mary Mallon who immigrated to the United States in the 1880s. Though she had no symptoms of typhoid fever, she carried the bacteria in her blood and could pass it on to other people. Because no doctor could convince her that this was true and she didn't feel sick, she insisted on working as a cook. During her career, she infected at least 51 people, three of whom died, before she was isolated in enforced quarantine for the last decades of her life.

setting his neighbor's house on fire because they didn't mow his
lawn. 53-year-old Lee Bowman of Sioux City was arrested and charged
with Arson 1st and Criminal Mischief. According to court documents,

the time of the fire and a neighbor noticed the fire and banged on
their door. Court documents reveal that Bowman lives next door to the
