A year ago I was struggling with a major episode of anxiety and depression. I've dealt with both my whole my life, and I've used various things, some healthier than others, to cope. Last year, however, when my despair seemingly came out of nowhere, I felt like I had drained all my coping skills. What could I possibly do to help this time?
My husband, Dustin, is one of the most competitive people I know. We’ve known each other since I was first born, but I only really came to understand Dustin’s competitive nature when we were newlyweds.

With the start of another year comes the promise of another session of the state Legislature and the prospect — no, make that a guarantee — of more laws.
Lawmakers are looking at ways to make the election process cheaper for voters, easier to see who is funding campaigns, and harder to run initiatives with financial consequences. Holding fewer elections, paying the postage on mail-in ballots and new disclosure rules for pop-up political committees are among the ideas put forth thus far this session.
