    LOS ANGELES - Don Knotts, the skinny, lovable nerd who kept generations of television audiences laughing as bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show," has died. He was 81. Knotts died Friday night of pulmonary and respiratory complications at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, said Paul Ward, a spokesman for the cable network TV Land, which airs "The Andy Griffith Show," and another Knotts hit, "Three's Company." Unspecified health problems had forced him to cancel an appearance in his native Morgantown in August 2005. The West Virginia-born actor's half-century career included seven TV series and more than...

    The case of the breast-fed 8-year-old is back in court. An Illinois judge said Lynn Stuckey's continued breast-feeding of her son amounts to neglect. The judge said Stuckey going public with her story is also exposing the boy to emotional harm. A tape of Stuckey breast-feeding the boy was shown on ABC's "Good Morning America." But Stuckey testified Tuesday that her son wants to continue to nurse. In the past, she's said there's nothing wrong with an 8-year-old breast-feeding. Stuckey's son was placed in foster care last year after a caretaker of the child told authorities that the child was...
