Q: Can you help me deal with the starving, binging and purging problem I’ve had ever since I was a teen? Thoughts of food rarely leave my mind. I’m fixated on my body weight. I feel guilty, shamed and dirty. How can I change?
Q: As a 50-something single woman with no immediate family (I never married), the past few months of forced isolation have really ramped up my concern about how I’ll cope as I age.

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend President Trump’s Independence celebration at Mount Rushmore. During this speech, the President stated, “Our Founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America. And no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation.” I appreciate President Trump’s strong remarks.
Chocolate chip cookies, one of America’s most iconic, favorite treats were created by accident. Ruth Wakerfield, owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, was baking some chocolate cookies when she realized she was out of cocoa powder.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) – also known as Obamacare – is ten years old. However, with ten years of hindsight, it is clear the ACA has been anything but affordable for Nebraska families. In the Third District, insurance on the ACA exchange often costs upwards of $30,000 for a family when you include annual premiums and deductible. Despite the ACA raising health insurance rates instead of lowering them, this week Speaker Pelosi brought a new ACA expansion bill (H.R. 1425) before the House of Representatives.
