Dear Heloise: One of the things I often see on the street is a mattress that has fallen off somebody's vehicle. People do not realize that a gust of wind or the wind they create by driving can cause the mattress to flip up and fall off. I have seen two mattresses on the street within the past week. Anybody who moves a mattress needs to loop a strong rope through the loops on the sides and across the mattress in at least two or three places. Crisscross the ropes across the mattress as well. -- William K. in Houston

Federal authorities, who are responsible for 90 percent of the project's costs, made the company and South Dakota use a mediator instead.
CHICAGO -- State legislatures trying to curtail abortions have suffered a 0-for-8 losing streak after court challenges to their new laws this year.

Democrats plan to use the attempted curbs to boost 2014 congressional fundraising and increase voter support, calling the laws part of a "War on Women."
