Ask Amy: Traumatized veteran admits he’s ‘a crappy husband.’ Where can he get help?

Dear Amy: I’m a 41-year-old man. My wife is 34. We’ve been married for 15 years. We have two children, ages 14 and eight. Our marriage has been difficult, mainly due to my PTSD from Iraq and an opioid addiction. Once I got sober, I shut out the world. I was an avoidant parent. My wife stuck with me through all of this, but 18 months ago she confessed to a short-lived affair.

Jury finds Clark County man guilty in 1974 slaying of Portland teen

A Clark County jury found Warren Forrest, 73, guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday in the 1974 slaying of 17-year-old Martha Morrison of Portland. It took just 90 minutes for the jury to deliberate after six days of testimony, but for Michael Morrison, the victim’s half-brother, the wait lasted 49 years. As the jury filed into the courtroom around 5 p.m., he clasped hands with 63-year-old Norma Jean Lewis, who was 15 and a Ridgefield High School student when Forrest abducted and attacked her.

The addition of Pleasant, the No. 91-ranked overall prospect in the class and one of only five unsigned top 200 players entering the day, came in the same hour the Ducks missed out on five-star athlete Nyckoles Harbor, who chose to sign with South Carolina in a recruiting battle to the very end.
