SAN FRANCISCO – For nearly a decade, George Lucas has been trying to build a museum for his personal art collection. After several false starts, the filmmaker will decide in January whether to put his museum in San Francisco or Los Angeles.
Dear Doc: Thank you so much for your article in the paper on being proactive about discussing depression with your doctor. What a critical point. I also have been writing about this for years in whatever local publication will have me. I am very passionate on this topic. I suffered from depression, and I suffered from the inability to act on my depression. My family suffered, too. Good job. Keep up the good work. – J.P.
MIAMI – Her water tasted like rusty pennies; the pepperoni pizza like metallic cardboard. The more chemotherapy sessions Monica Faison-Finch got, the faster her taste buds gave out.

DON’T MISS: “Sherlock” – After a yearlong hiatus, Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) make a very welcome return in a three-episode fourth season.

Dear Carolyn: My wife and I have two children (whom I carried), ages 5 and 6 months. We spend two or three holidays and other “family vacations” a year with her family, which includes her parents and three sisters and their husbands and nine children ages 1 to 11. We spend anywhere from 3 to 5 days. Her family has always been supportive of our relationship even when mine wasn’t, and I appreciate that. My issue is the lack of respect for our parenting. They all think it’s appropriate for young children to hold, pass around, and carry around infants, and I am adamantly opposed to this. My wife does not appreciate that they do this either, but she will not put a stop to it. She has said a few things to her mom but never follows through.
Ken Hopkins’ recollection of July 13, 2015, is still vivid up to a certain point. That evening, he was involved in a bike accident that left him with a concussion, a few broken ribs and a spinal injury.
