A prize of paint

Adam Pflugrath, a second-grader at Lee Elementary in East Wenatchee, paints a message on the hood of a VW Beetle on June 8. Students in Doug Cornwell's second grade class met their math goal for the year, which earned them the chance to paint para-educator Pat Shigouri's 1999 Volkswagen Beetle as a reward. The paint is washable. (World photo/Reilly Kneedler)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Just like the kids in “The Magic Tree House” books he’s always reading, Amare Leggette will soon embark on a big adventure, the biggest of his life.

Dear Abby | Not every friend desires benefits

Dear Abby: Some people believe sex with friends can turn a friendship into chaos. I don’t believe it because I can remain a friend and still be there intimately.

I know it’s only a joke, but I believe he’s the type of person who would feel the friendship would be lost if we were intimate — or worse, if we aren’t compatible in bed.
