CHICAGO (AP) — Abby has moved — across town.

Chicago area devotees of the long-running Dear Abby column now have to turn to the Chicago Sun-Times for advice.

The column appeared in the newspaper for the first time Monday. It had previously been a regular feature in the Chicago Tribune.

Jeanne Phillips is the daughter of Dear Abby founder Pauline Phillips and is the current author of the column. In Monday's paper, she warned a worried boyfriend away from a girlfriend who gambles too much and ordered a reluctant secretary to send thank you notes to business associates.

Jeanne Phillips tells the Sun-Times in an interview that an increasing number of people who write her for help have troubles related to the nationwide economic downturn.
