AFTER BEING injured in a car crash last week, state Attorney General Kathleen Kane has one message for her constituents: Wear your seatbelts. Kane is recovering at home from a concussion she received in that crash, Renee Martin, her spokeswoman, said yesterday. The crash happened in Dunmore, Lackawanna County, early Oct. 21 after Kane's security team picked her up for a morning appointment. As Kane's driver turned onto a residential street in the sleepy town, not far from Kane's home, he reached for his iPad, which contained the directions to the appointment, Martin said.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 51-year-old gay male. I have a sweet, dear friend I'll call "Samantha" who is slightly older. The problem is, she wants more than friendship. She insists on spending time with me and calls me daily. She hugs me repeatedly when she goes to leave, and kisses my neck or cheek - whichever she can get to. Samantha has touched me in a way that makes me uncomfortable. She places herself so her body touches my hand or arm. When she does, I quickly remove it. She says I remind her of her brother, but I'm not feeling a sibling relationship here.

A week or two later, Jack and friends walked into the Brick House Tavern.

The morning after former Miss New Jersey Cara McCollum was critically injured in a car accident, her colleagues at SNJ Today formed a circle in the conference room at the television news station where she is an anchor and prayed for more than 20 minutes. "There were lots of words of prayer . . . and silent reflection," said Mike Frankel, who covers sports and news for the upstart TV station, based in Millville, Cumberland County. "We all really have become like family, and if it were someone else in this situation, Cara would be the one leading the charge to pray and do whatever she could . . . so we are staying upbeat and doing what we can for her. " Frankel said McCollum's "kindness and charisma" have inspired an outpouring of concern from coworkers, members of her former pageant family, and strangers who have taken to social media and other means to call for prayers.
