PHILADELPHIA Police Officer Thomas Schaffling has again overstepped his bounds. The troubled officer drew his pistol outside a bar in the Tacony section and let off shots at the men who allegedly attacked him. How long will Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey put up with this problem officer? Over the years, Officer Schaffling has his share of run-ins and misconduct. In 2008, he was linked to the beatings of three men. He was involved in an incident at a baby shower that cost the city money via lawsuits.

DEAR ABBY: After two failed marriages, I married a wonderful man whom I love but am not in love with. He recently had a seizure, after which he was diagnosed with moderate dementia. All I see is a long, dark road ahead. We are senior citizens with not a long time left on this Earth. My health is suffering because of this situation. I am extremely depressed, suffer from panic attacks, and have lost any hope of happiness in the future. I am torn between my responsibility to my husband and leaving to try to find some sort of joy in my life.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Two of my adult children and I are hosting a baby shower for my third child and her husband. They are big sports fans, so the shower is planned for late morning at a location that will allow guests, if they wish, to join the parents-to-be at a nearby sporting event afterward. It is a coed shower with four children (10 and under) attending. Now my son-in-law is planning to bring a cooler of beer because, he says, it will be a "draw" for the guys.

SALEM, N.J. - A South Jersey high school teacher who allegedly slapped a female student's face was acquitted Tuesday of a simple-assault charge she filed. Salem City Municipal Judge Jason Witcher ruled that there wasn't enough evidence to indicate Steve Merritt intended to injure the student, 18. Witnesses said Merritt - a longtime English teacher at Salem High School - tapped the student in what appeared to be a joking manner. Witcher said the student apparently misinterpreted Merritt's actions.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for 10 years, married for five. We have an 8-year-old daughter. Yes, the math is clear - she was a "love child. " My family is religious, and although I was 22 at the time of my pregnancy, they announced that I would not be having a baby shower because I had conceived in sin. My sister and her husband of five years recently announced that she is pregnant and I am expected to attend showers and parties for her. Am I wrong for not wanting to go?

As everyone knows, there are baby-shower standards: inane activities, public opening of presents, lots of oohing and ahhing over said presents. Not everyone's a fan, including Donna Laing. But when she attended a grandbaby shower a couple years ago, she had a blast. "It was so fun, and an easy-breezy afternoon. No crazy games, you didn't have to get dressed up, and you didn't spend a million dollars," said Laing, of Warminster. The guest of honor was Peg Bauman, the grandmother-to-be of twins.

WE DON'T KNOW what to make of Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey's apparent change of heart over the disciplining of two officers, but we hope it's not a signal that the public honeymoon is over for the so-far well-regarded chief. Last week, a police melee at a baby shower that injured six people involved two of the officers that were caught on videotape kicking a suspect back in May. That May incident was an international embarrassment for the police, but Ramsey and the mayor's quick response - firing four officers, transferring four others and suspending three without pay - was hailed as a bold and decisive move, necessary for a department that has lacked transparency and sensitivity to charges of brutality, use of force and over-reliance on violence.
