It's a 2-day event, but it's 2 days of auctions (no hyphen). AP, you're better than this. C'mon.

He is only four years old, but he is a four-year-old boy. Lose the dashes/hyphens since it's not followed by a noun..

Her ex-husbands are talking about splitting up? That's how I first read this. Turns out her exes are talking about her recent split from her current husband. How about "talk about her latest split"?
