DEAR DR. ROACH: Since January, I have had gout in my right big toe five times. I have been treated by an internist, and was given methylprednisolone (4-mg dose packs) five times. The medicine works only to the point of getting rid of the worst of it, but it comes right back -- sometimes one or two days after taking the last pill. I adhere to the diet provided, take allopurinol daily to help prevent it, do not drink any alcoholic beverages, take tramadol for pain and just started meloxicam, which so far masks the pain some but has done nothing for the swelling and soreness.

Deadwiller, reviewed the parameters of submitting report evidence in a rape case, which concerns the constitutional right to cross-examine witnesses being called against the defendant.

The purchase of Dakotafest by the American Farm Bureau Federation will not affect the sales taxes paid at the event, according to Alison Jares, tax administrator for the South Dakota Department of Revenue.
