How do I stop my shower from dripping at night?

QUESTION: In the middle of the night, if we use the bathroom in the master bath and then go back to bed, water starts coming out of our showerhead; it drips and drips and drips. A plumber recommended installing a new showerhead and pipe, but that didn’t work. How can we stop this from happening? Our house is about 16 years old.

That might have seemed like a dizzying pace in the first half of the past century, but if they were here today, I thi…

St. Joseph struggles with lack of skilled workers

A recent workforce survey conducted by the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce found the city is suffering from a shortage of skilled labor. Specifically, low- and middle-skilled workers are in demand.
