His name is Alex. He is 13 years old. And when he reaches 35, he stands to inherit an estate now valued at about $400 million. This L.A. golden child is the only son of Mark Hughes, the late founder of Herbalife International, a maker of nutritional supplements. Hughes' death at age 44 on May 21, 2000, made Alex the sole beneficiary of a vast trust. The multimillionaire died of a lethal combination of alcohol and an antidepressant after a drinking binge. The death was deemed accidental.

My 82-year-old mother has been accusing family members of spying on her, listening in on her phone conversations and entering her home when she's not there, among other things, off and on for about 10 years. She told her doctor she won't talk with us. Is there anything we can do? Are there resources and/or free counseling services to help us work out issues with our mom so we can talk with her doctor? You can try to contact your mom's doctor to discuss her condition, particularly given that you're concerned she may be suffering from dementia and unable to properly care for herself.

A Florida appeals court said a lawsuit over whether a brain-damaged woman should be kept on life support must be reopened to consider more testimony. The ruling, which overturns a decision by the judge overseeing the highly publicized right-to-die case, is a victory for the parents of Theresa "Terri" Schiavo, 40. The suit challenges a law that ordered Schiavo's feeding tube reinserted six days after it had been removed at the request of her husband and legal guardian, Michael Schiavo.
