DEAR PAW’S CORNER: After taking my Terrier “Hank” for a walk around my subdivision yesterday, I noticed when taking off his leash that a tick had attached itself to the back of his neck! I don’t even know where it came from; we stayed on the sidewalk.

I  quickly tried to remove it with tweezers, but Hank is kind of a wiggly guy, and just as I tugged on the tick, he moved and the body of the tick broke off! It looks like the tick’s head is still embedded in his skin. What can I do? Will this hurt Hank? — Joe K. in Sarasota Springs, New York

Fogelman’s first series was the short lived ABC comedy The Neighbors, starring Jami Gertz (Still Standing). He followed that...

Frayzie hosting an album release party on April 19

“I just really loved rap music. I would sing it, I mimicked it. But I never said ‘Oh, I want to be a rapper’ until I was 16,” he said in an interview with the Sun.

He recorded his first album in a closet in his dad’s apartment, and now over 20 years later he’s about to release his ninth.

Frayzie said his favorite part about making music is getting to sit...
