Storyline

Sam has introduced a new column in the newspaper: an advice column called Dear Minerva, with Sam secretly being said Minerva. Kate thinks the advice Sam is doling out is all wrong and comes up with better advice to the letter writers. Kate's advice is exactly what Sam was hoping as he wanted a woman to take over the column. He convinces Kate to be Minerva, she agreeing only on the condition that no one knows it's her. The plan is for Kate to type the columns at the hotel, with Dog being the messenger between Sam and Kate. Kate has a difficult time trying to find a place in the hotel where she can type her columns without anyone finding out. She manages to get the job done and the column becomes a big hit, but typing the columns in peace while still attending to her hotel duties and the needs of the family takes its toll on her. Kate finds out in a roundabout way what effect her column writing is having on life at the hotel, and she has to decide if the grief is worth the big time ... Written by Huggo
