Friends disagree on splitting road trip expenses

Friends disagree on splitting road trip expenses

DEAR ABBY: My friend and I are planning a road trip. We live in different parts of the country, so he’ll be flying to my city, where we will start the trip. We plan to split the cost of car rental, gas and hotels. However, I was assuming he would pay his own airfare, and he was assuming we would split it like everything else.

Chief gives update on busy week

It has been a busy week on the Muscogee Reservation. Saturday, Jan. 30, I delivered my second State of the Nation address virtually to Muscogee citizens. 2020 was certainly a year unlike anything we have ever seen before, but we endured, and the state of our Nation is strong. I encourage all citizens to visit www.mcn-nsn. gov/documents to view our quarterly reports and to learn more about our great nation and the many plans we have for the future.

Nutty Nutella

Nutty Nutella

World Nutella Day is February 5! Nutella, for those who may not know, is a chocolate hazelnut spread. It was originally created by Pietro Ferrero in 1944 in the back room of his bakery in Alba. It was originally made of just hazelnut paste and chocolate and was created as a way to make chocolate go further. It was sold in a solid block at the time. A creamier version was created in 1951, but the Nutella we all know was renamed and jarred for the first time in 1964 by Pietro’s son, Michele. Today, Nutella is made mainly of sugar and palm oil with only about 13% being hazelnut, according to research done by Greenpeace.

Son in abusive marriage won’t leave his kids

DEAR ABBY: My son is in an abusive marriage. He is verbally, mentally and emotionally abused by his wife constantly. She does everything she can to force him to leave. She tells him it is her house and she wants him to go. They bought the house together, and they both work and pay the bills. He won’t leave because he doesn’t want to leave his kids. Is there any kind of support for abused men? -- CONCERNED DAD IN N. CAROLINA
