Q. I recently had a small fire in my apartment. I think it was caused by the new clothes dryer I had installed. The landlord collected for the damage to his building from his insurance company. Now the insurance company is coming after me for $60,000 because of a clause in my lease. This fire was not my fault. How can I be sued?

One of the questions I get most often has to do with judging others for their actions, or lack thereof. Some people enjoy judging and really could make a good living out of it if they chose to do so in the legal field, but that would take more education, more discipline and more hard work. It is far easier to just sit back in a recliner or rocker and take on the world and let everyone who will listen know what others should do about their sorry lives. I am amazed at what ticks some folks off and how little it takes to get them ranting and raving for days.

The context of my visit with the Lamar pre-professional students included my discussion of the OSR and the AAMC. My relationship with the founding dean of the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio is part of that context.

My name is Paul. I’m around 2-3 years young and I weigh 26 pounds. I am very sweet and very playful, so I need someone to play with me! I love running around in the yard and playing with toys. I’m good on a leash and sure would love to go on walks with you by my side. I also like to play with other dogs but like to be introduced slowly and get to know them with you by my side. If you are interested in adopting me, please come down to BAS and meet me. If you call for information, reference system No. 25340.

Q. I gave proper notice to end my lease and started moving out a week before it ended. I moved almost all of my belongings into my new apartment and was living there, but I accidently left a jewelry box in my former apartment. When I went back to retrieve it, it was gone. I still had my key and three days remaining on my lease. Is my landlord responsible for the theft?

I have a dear friend (well, actually, more than one) who sometimes loses his objectivity and becomes downright mean to those around him. More often than not, he will be mean, excessively so, to one person for a week or two, and then completely switch his allegiance and turn on someone new within his circle. And believe me, after watching this trait demonstrated on several occasions, I can find no fault with the one that is chosen for that particular week. He or she will not have done anything demonstrating ill will, unkindness, or evil toward this person.

This little frisky fella is Leonardo. He’s definitely not a needy cat. He wouldn’t mind if you work long hours as long as you keep his food and water bowl full and his litter box clean. He’ll be delighted when you get home and might even want to snuggle with you! We believe Leonardo is around 9 months old. He currently weighs 7 pounds.  Please stop by the shelter to meet Mr. Leonardo!! Leonardo # 25815

Dr. Jack Johnston has about 50 different surgical caps with decorations ranging

There’s a lot to look at when entering a new doctor’s office: photos of the family, wall art and perhaps a few old magazines. And then there’s the doctor himself. Wait. Are those sandals?

When Dr. Jack Johnston of the Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute walks into his office at 2501 Jimmy Johnson Boulevard in Port Arthur, probably what will surprise first-time patients the most is the footwear selection of the physician. Don’t expect to see traditional, white hospital shoes when Dr. Johnston enters the exam room.
