   NEW YORK (AP) — Lindsay Lohan says this time it's going to be different.

   In an interview that aired Sunday with Oprah Winfrey, the trouble-prone actress declared that this, her sixth stint in rehab, has put her on a path of recovery.

   Lohan said she's in "a different head space" now and vowed to stay "present and clear-headed and focused."

   "I feel whole again," she told Winfrey, "and I have such a desire to want to keep this feeling and stay this way, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes."

   Lohan, 27, completed her latest court-ordered stay in rehab in July. She must continue therapy into late next year.

   She acknowledged an addiction to alcohol, which "in the past was a gateway to other things for me," but she offered no specifics other than cocaine, which she said she has used no more than 15 times.

   Winfrey asked her what she's on these days. Lohan replied, "Vitamins."

   "You're not on any prescription drugs?" Winfrey pressed.

   "No, no," Lohan insisted, then checked herself: "I take Nexium. Because I have acid reflux."

   Clad in a form-fitting orange dress, Lohan said a comfort level with her past chaotic life had fed her much-reported partying and her brushes with the law. But she added that she takes full blame for her mistakes.

   When Winfrey asked if she can turn her life around this time, Lohan said with no hesitation, "Yeah."

   The interview aired as an episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which will spotlight Lohan next year in an eight-part docuseries based on her life.

   During the hour, an advertisement appeared for Cliffside Malibu, the rehab facility where Lohan was recently residing. That ad boasted of a treatment program so successful, it's guaranteed.

   Lohan's latest film, "The Canyons," is currently in limited release.

   They say the attack also left three policemen wounded. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to the media.

   The strategic region borders the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Amazon severing ties with online associates in MO

Monday, 19 August 2013 01:02 Published in Local News

   KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Online retailer Amazon is severing ties with its online associates in Missouri because of a new state sales tax law.

   Amazon Associates are people who write blogs or product reviews then link to Amazon.com. They collect commissions if people use their link to buy at Amazon.

   The Kansas City Star reports that Amazon blames its decision to sever ties with its Missouri associates on a new state new law that takes effect this month subjecting those transactions to sales taxes. The retailer says it will no longer pay advertising fees for customers referred to an Amazon site after Aug. 27.

   Rep. Jeremy LaFaver, a Kanas City Democrat, says lawmakers didn't hear from Amazon when the bill was under debate in the Legislature.
