      *TOP STORY*

      *Few Programs to Help Women with Addictions*
      The number of U.S. women dealing with drug addiction has skyrocketed
      over the past few decades, as has the female prison population, but
      there still are few addiction treatment programs designed to meet the
      specific needs of women.


      *Betty Ford's Legacy Recognized*
      As Americans paused this week to remember former President Gerald Ford,

      offenses, but the state chapter of the ACLU is challenging General
      Treasurer Paul J. Tavares' stance.

      Policy Foundation.
