Prince Harry: More talk It seems the stiff upper lip thing doesn't apply for a whole generation of British royals. Take the late Princess Diana 's son Prince Harry , who was 12 when his mom died in '97. "You know, I really regret not ever talking about it," Harry says in a vid released Monday by the BBC. "It's OK to suffer, as long as you talk about it. It's not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognizing it and not solving that problem. " The vid has Harry, 31, chat with several sports stars, including footballer Rio Ferdinand , whose wife died of cancer last year.

By the time you read this, I will be a year older. But no wiser. Because I almost got killed this morning doing a dumb thing. Or maybe the best thing I ever did. You be the judge. We began on a quiet Saturday morning, and I was going to meet my best friend, Franca, so we could ride our bikes on the trail. Yes, it's that time of year again, when Franca and I go bicycle-riding and try to remain upright. I was driving to meet her, and there was only light traffic because it was early in the morning on a summer weekend, but as I turned onto this main, four-lane road near my house, I happened to notice a flock of mother and baby geese about to step off the curb on the other side of the street and cross the road.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I have been with my boyfriend for four years. We have lived together for one. I am nine years older, and he comes from a very traditional part of the world. We are trying to get pregnant, but the thought of scientific intervention puts him off. I have tried to explain that the longer we wait, the harder it will be, but he thinks that if we keep trying, it will happen. I am afraid that if it doesn't, we will end, because he does want children and I won't be able to. How do I get him to face the age difference and go to the doctor?

Friday the 13th will never be the same for the Smith family, which stepped forward Friday to claim a $429.6 million Powerball jackpot, the largest ever won in New Jersey. Pearlie Mae Smith and her seven adult children said they plan to tithe 10 percent of their winnings to their Pentecostal church, take vacations, and help others. "Wow. That's what it's like," Smith, 70, of Trenton, said at a news conference at state lottery headquarters in Lawrenceville. "I'm still trying to figure out what it's like.

DEAR ABBY: I have a hard time differentiating between enabling and helping my sister. Throughout her adult life, even while she was married, she has never been able to make ends meet. She's single now and in her 50s, a hardworking but underemployed, depressed individual. I have a good job and I feel guilty if I don't help her each month. (She doesn't ask but drops enough hints that I know things aren't going well.) I have suggested repeatedly that she needs to find a better job. I even send her job leads, but I'm not sure she ever applies.

Question: I love that you are big on each spouse's "having the other's back" - as they are on the same "team. " However, when is it OK not to have your partner's back? My spouse routinely makes statements that are patently and demonstrably untrue - easily disproved with a couple of clicks of a mouse. Yet I am berated (later) for not "having my spouse's back" when I don't publicly agree with Spouse in the face of nonbelief by Spouse's particular audience. When is it OK to say, "Honey, I love you, but when I believe you to be completely wrong, I won't have your back this time"?

New Jersey lawmakers are renewing a push to let the state take control of Atlantic City's finances in an effort to prevent bankruptcy for the resort town, shaken by casino closures. Legislation outlined Wednesday comes after Gov. Christie, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, and Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian agreed in principle last month that greater state involvement was needed. The proposal from Sweeney (D., Gloucester) and other senators would allow the state Local Finance Board to assume the "functions, powers, privileges, and immunities" of the city government for five years.

TRENTON - A New Jersey judge on Friday blocked attempts by environmental groups and a state senator to appeal the state's settlement with ExxonMobil Corp. in a high-profile pollution case. But the saga isn't over. The groups and State Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak (D., Union) immediately said they would appeal the judge's decision to the Appellate Division. At issue is a $225 million settlement the state struck with Exxon in March, following a decade of litigation over the oil company's contamination of more than a thousand acres of land at two sites in North Jersey.

MAYOR NUTTER, City Council President Darrell Clarke and Deputy Mayor Alan Greenberger came to praise developer Eric Blumenfeld's "never-say-die" attitude in finally getting a deal done to renovate the Divine Lorraine Hotel. At a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday, both Nutter and Greenberger said the $44 million restoration would be a "tipping point" to enhance the revitalization of North Broad Street. "Restoring the Divine Lorraine to its former glory was among my top economic-development priorities," Nutter said.
