Dear Amy: My co-worker's wife has Stage 4 cancer, and he has put out the word that he needs money for the mounting medical bills. He also said he was on the verge of losing his home. We were told that a bank account had been set up and that people could contribute. Here in the office, we all thought that was a great idea, and we pooled our money to deposit a large sum into the account. Lately, every time we talk to him, he talks about how he just bought new furniture and new carpet and is now taking the family to Disneyland with the funds.

As NFL divisions go, the AFC West is the AFC Weirdest. Wasn't Denver supposed to be doomed? The Broncos are 4-0 for the first time since 2003, and rookie Coach Josh McDaniels , who bumbled into town by first alienating then trading Jay Cutler , is beginning to look like a star. He's even mended fences with sulky receiver Brandon Marshall , who only weeks ago wanted out of Denver in the worst way. Even more surprising, last season's 29th-ranked defense is suddenly a force of nature, ranked first in points allowed and second in yards.

The public doesn't warm to every instrument it hears. Every winter audiences are enchanted by the celesta, a kind of keyboard glockenspiel, because Tchaikovsky made its sweet sound famous in "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from "Nutcracker. " The jury is out on the siren. Edgard Varèse shocked listeners in 1930 when they heard its high-pitched wailings in his all-percussion "Ionization. " The siren will get another hearing when percussionist Steven Schick joins 47 other percussionists in a performance of John Luther Adams' outdoor piece, "Inuksuit," at the Ojai Music Festival in June.

On a busy sidewalk in downtown Los Angeles, Birpal Kaur threaded her way through a stream of women with perfectly shaped eyebrows. She occasionally reached up to smooth her own — dark, bushy and untamed, hinting at a unibrow. For six months, the 28-year-old Sikh had resisted the urge to have her brows groomed, as she had regularly done in the past. For observant Sikhs, the body is a gift to be honored by leaving it in its natural state. Maintaining kesh , or hair, is one of the five articles of faith as ordered by the 10th guru.

I recall a story you did on thick eyebrows a while back; now I see there's a new one on thin eyebrows and the fact that they are "in"--but for how long ("Raising Eyebrows," by Lesa Sawahata, Style, Nov. 29)? Women are going to get nowhere until they stop decking themselves out like this, until they accept their faces as they are. All folks who have kind souls are beautiful, and makeup does nothing to disguise the other kind of souls. Come on, women--wash your faces! What's good enough for your pillow is good enough--period!

MEXICO CITY - President Obama on Friday painted a sunny picture of a modern Mexico emerging from its past troubles, an attempt at rebranding that serves the political aims of both governments but clashes with the realities of a country beset by violence and poverty. On his second day of a swing through Latin America, Obama emphasized optimism about Mexico's economic future and offered a broad endorsement of President Enrique Peña Nieto's reform agenda. Speaking to a crowd largely made up of high school and college students, Obama pushed the next generation of Mexicans to continue to demand change.

Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Tierra, the “villain” of this season of “The Bachelor,” cried so much this week that she melted into a puddle and drifted into the St. Croix ocean. But more on that later. Yes, this week's episode was set in the lovely Virgin Islands, cueing the portion of the “Bach” season where I actually consider auditioning for the show just for the free vacation. Sean flies into St. Croix on a tiny plane with -- gasp -- all six girls, explaining that he “wanted to break the rules” and travel with hot women instead of his usual pack of producers.

WASHINGTON -- Aloha! Sort of. As federal judges prepare to gather for a conference in Maui, a pair of Republican senators are still complaining about the potential $1-million tab. Lawmakers have been sensitive about conference spending ever since employees of the federal General Services Administration ran up an $823,000 bill for a Las Vegas-area conference in 2010 featuring a mind reader. Republican Sens. Jeff Sessions of Alabama and Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the ranking members of the Budget and Judiciary committees, respectively, have complained for months about the 9th Circuit Judicial Conference at the Hyatt Regency Maui, which gets underway Monday.

When Justin Combs turned 16, his father, hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, gave him a $360,000 silver Maybach. When Justin Combs decided to play football in college, UCLA gave him a $54,000 scholarship. As UCLA confirmed this week that the recent graduate of New York's New Rochelle Iona Prep would enroll on a full athletic scholarship, some questioned if the cash-strapped school should pay for the education of the son of a man worth an estimated $475 million - and whether the 18-year-old should have accepted the offer.
