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.

In the spring of 1970, at the Student American Medical Association – renamed American Medical Student Association in 1975 – I was elected the first chairman of the OSR. The first national meeting of the OSR was held in December 1971.

I sat on the deck here in Kemah and looked out over the Dickinson Bayou, a scenic part of Galveston Bay. The water was peaceful and smooth, the sky was blue, and the fish were jumping. Truly my kind of day. My attention was drawn to the next-door neighbor’s boat slip. The family had a beautiful boat, perfect for riding over the water or fishing with the family. A truck I didn’t recognize was in the yard, and a man I had never seen before was walking down the long pier.

Q. My father recently passed. Question is, he had made a will with a lawyer but never had it registered. Is the will still valid? What happens if he did not have a will? Does all the property go to the state?

A. A will is valid and enforceable once it is properly prepared and signed. In most cases, a will also is notarized. This is not necessary, but it does make it easier and less expensive to probate the will. A will, however, does not have to be filed or registered to be valid. The attorney may now file the will for probate.
