They are in their original boxes. I have no idea of how much they are worth and hope you can help me. -- Stella, Sun City West, Ariz. A: According to "Blue Book: Dolls and Values" by Jan Foulke (Hobby House Press), condition is extremely important in determining the value of Barbie dolls. "Mint condition" means the doll has never been played with, coloring is beautiful, hair is perfect and all accessories are present. A rule of thumb dictates that to price out-of- original-box dolls and accessories, deduct 50 percent, for lightly played with dolls, another 25 percent. Lois Berger is a collector, and she might be able to help you established the value of your dolls. Her address is 2323 Lincoln St., Beatrice, NE 68310. Paul David is a dealer who also publishes a Barbie newsletter. His contact information is 610 Blackwater Road, Chillicothe, OH 45601. ••• Q: I have a 1983 RCA Selectavision Video Disc Player in the original box and 15 of the movie discs. What are the player and discs worth, and where can I sell them? -- Linda, Menomonie, Wisc. A: The RCA Selectavision Video system is technology that didn't quite achieve traction with consumers. Think 8-track tapes. Generally, the discs sell for about $10 each. The players, especially ones with the original container, are worth more. To find out more about the RCA Selectavision players, discs and the people who collect them, check out www.cedmagic.com/selectavision.html. June 9 - 15, 2011 ••• Q: I have about 30 M.I. Hummel figurines, which I began purchasing during the 1950s. I would like to pass this collection along to my family, but would like to know the appraised value of each. Can you help me? -- Otto, Peoria, Ariz. A: The easiest (and cheapest) way to determine the value of your Hummel figurines is to purchase a good price guide. My favorite is "M.I. Hummel Figurines, Plates, Miniatures, and More" by Robert L. Miller (Portfolio Press, $24.95). I found a copy on Amazon for $26. This excellent guide features the latest prices referencing thousands of items. Even though I have seen other guides, this one accurately reflects the current marketplace.

DONOHUE: My daughter, 37, has rheumatoid arthritis. Is it genetic or a diet/lifestyle illness? What can be done to alleviate her discomfort? I read somewhere that cod liver oil brings relief. -- H.B. ANSWER: Arthritis comes in many guises. Osteoarthritis is the most common kind. Nearly everyone has a touch of it before death. Rheumatoid arthritis affects about 1 percent of adults, with two women afflicted for every man. It makes its appearance most often in the 40s and 50s. The lower two knuckles of the fingers, the wrist, elbows, ankles and foot joints are the ones most often attacked, but any joint can be affected, including the shoulders and hips. It’s a symmetrical arthritis, meaning that the same joint on the right is stricken as the one on the left. It’s also a systemic illness. The body as a whole suffers. Fever, weight loss and fatigue are common in many stages of this illness. The eyes can become inflamed, as can blood vessels. Changes in the lungs are possible. It’s not a diet/lifestyle illness. Genes play a role, but not the entire role. The immune system is involved. Cod liver oil is no longer used for treatment. A new dawn has broken for the treatment of this often- Seeds of Change LLC Jill Shire, M.A. L.P.C. (formerly known as Jill Herber-Rocco) Now accepting new clients Counseling for Adults & Children 111 W 2nd Street • Ste 305 Casper, WY • 307-277-7802 disabling affliction. Formerly, anti-inflammatory drugs like Motrin and aspirin were the initial treatment. Now treatment most often begins with drugs called disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, DMARD. These medicines have the potential to stop the progression of the illness. Methotrexate is one example. A brand-new class of rheumatoid arthritis drugs, the biologicals, neutralizes body chemicals that lead to joint inflammation and deformity. They can halt the arthritis process in its tracks -- not always, but enough of the time to call them amazing. Some names are Humira, Kineret, Actemra, Enbrel and Remicade. They also have powerful side effects that have to be quickly attended to. Your daughter lives at a time that is a good one for people with this illness. The booklet on arthritis describes the various kinds and their treatments. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 301W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 76-year-old man with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -- emphysema and chronic bronchitis). I am relatively symptomfree and have reduced the use of my inhaler to one puff in the morning and in the evening. I jog and walk two miles, three times a week, in 25 minutes and have done so for the past four years. Am I putting undue stress on my heart? Am I hurting or helping myself? -- R.S. ANSWER: You’ve stuck with this program for four years and are now using less medicine than you did. It appears to help you. Your regimen isn’t a dangerous one. However, I have to stop short of giving you carte blanche approval. Only your doctor can do June 9 - 15, 2011 so. He or she knows all aspects of your medical history; I don’t. I’m pretty sure you’ll get the doctor’s OK. ••• Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

The sun was out. The sky was blue. There was a gigantic high-definition message to guard against hiding the view. Charlotte Motor Speedway officials said the CocaCola 600 crowd was better, which was what they said during the Sprint All-Star Race, but the tension is gone from attendance at this speedway and about every other one. It doesn't matter where one goes on the Sprint Cup circuit these days. Good seats are available. I spent a good bit of this warm day among the fans. Each year a group of fans, united in their slightly irrational love of an obscure brand of beer, invites me to their prerace party. I don't materially participate in the shrine, knowing full well that duty calls. I drink one beer, take part in a toast, share some NASCAR stories and play some songs. Payment this particularly Sunday was two bottles of Gatorade, a hamburger and a hot dog. And, oh, yeah, some tortilla chips. Others stopped by. A year ago some of our troops, already on maneuver at the speedway, went foraging through the campgrounds in search of rations but mainly beer. This year my friends -- some from North Carolina, some from Tennessee, some from I don't know exactly where -- provided hospitality to several happy wanderers, but none were wearing camouflage. All season I have been pondering the fall-off. The more I watch, the more I read the mail and the more I talk to fans, the more I believe that a troubled economy is a bit overrated. The fans who cite the price of gas are the ones who don't go anyway. It is sort of their rationalization for not being there. A driver's motor coach can cost $1 million, easy. Most fans don't pay $1 million. But, if a family can afford to drop, oh, $200,000 on transportation, how can a measly $400 stop them from using it to drive from home in, say, West Virginia to a race track in Concord? If anything is crazier than spending that kind of money, it's leaving the investment sitting in the yard. On the other hand, people don't like to admit that they can't afford to do anything. Some of them claim they think the racing isn't the same, it's boring, etc., in part because they have to make an excuse other than "well, I can't afford it." I think most fans still like the races. It's just hard to beat the comfort of home. The fan base is getting older. Each year the comfort of home seems a little more inviting and a lot less expensive. It's not that they can't afford it. A man who loved to "rough it" at 30 is starting to think a high-def TV -- not one as big as his house but one that looks large in his living room -- and grill on the patio is better than pitching tents a half mile from the track. The deficit in the grandstands is almost completely reflective of the deficit in the campgrounds. The people who drive back and forth to the track are the same. The ones who make a vacation of it are the ones deciding to make a vacation of something else. 517 N Lennox Street • 266-6642 What NASCAR needs more than anything else is a young generation of rowdy fans to replace the ones getting a bit older and more willing to do their NASCAR partying in their backyards. ••• Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.)

The bad know they are good, but the good know nothing.

These Folks Say Yes DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I just read your article about how people feel about their pets. I am one of the pet lovers who believes that they are part of our family. My husband and I have two teenage daughters and a 14-year-old deaf and blind border collie named Logan. I am Mom to Logan, my husband is Dad and our daughters are "Sissy" to her. We got her through a rescue league when she was about a year old. I am a big supporter of shelters and helped form Justice for Dogs with Amy Touchette in Wolcott, Vt. I'm happy to see that the trend is going in the right direction about how to treat animals. Many people have told me over the years that when they die, they want to come back as my dog. If you had all day, I could give you the list of reasons why. Thank you. -- Toni M., Hardwick, Vt. DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I read your column and have to put my say in, as I absolutely adore animals. They are great friends and are always there when people may not be. We had a cat about four years ago that had kittens and always killed the litters -- until one day I got angry and saved the last kitten. As "Socks" grew attached he treated me as a mother, and to this day I feel he is my baby boy, even though I am just 18. I go so far as to give him a little birthday each November. -- Sign me, Socks' Mom in Illinois DEAR READERS: Wow, thanks for the great letters! I received quite a response to my question of pet owners. It's clear that owners care deeply for their pets, and that's positive news.

When will that be, and can you give me any scoop about the new season? -- Kimberly F., St. Louis A: “Leverage” will be back Sunday, June 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TNT. Timothy Hutton and crew kick off the new season with a snow-bound adventure. Eric Stoltz guest-stars as the Leverage team must recover lost evidence high up on a mountain. I spoke with Timothy about the new season, and he gave me a sneak peek: “There’s certainly going to be developments with the Nate/ Sophie relationship, with them trying to figure out who they are together and what they want with or from each other.” “The other thing about this season is that the Leverage team is being watched very closely,” he said. “They are being hunted by certain people who would like them to stop doing what they are doing, so they’re a little bit on the run. “It adds a nice element of danger to season four, where they’re not just independent agents who can move about freely and take down bad guys. They still do that, but they’re doing it at quite big risks, because they know that someone is out to get them.” ••• Q: Is it true there are plans to remake “Total Recall”? -- Jerry W., via e-mail A: That’s the news spreading around town. Len Wiseman of “Underworld” fame is on board to direct, with Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale (who also happens to be Len’s wife and favorite go-to leading lady) set to star. Bill Nighy, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biehl, Ethan Hawke and John Cho also have signed on for the remake of the 1990 film, which is based on a Philip K. Dick story, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.” The tentative release date is Aug. 3, 2012. ••• Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Holding a yard sale can be work, but it also can be lucrative. Here are some tips to make your yard sale successful. Posters and signs: Put up notices in grocery stores, the library, senior center -- anywhere you can find community bulletin boards. Be sure what the laws are in your area about posting on telephone poles. Make a list of the sign locations so you can take them down quickly after the sale. Ads: Go in with others on the cost and hold a multi-family sale. The bigger the sale, the more traffic you’re likely to get. Organize: Set aside the items you want to sell. Gather user manuals, clean your items and make them look as attractive as possible. Pricing: Put prices on everything, ideally where the Tidbits of Casper - For Advertising call 307-473-8661 • 161 South Fenway, Casper, WY sticker easily can be seen. Put bigger signs on items such as furniture. Recruit the kids: You might convince them to sell their unused toys if you allow them to keep the money. If nothing else, you can clear some of the clutter out of their rooms. Clothing: Make sure items are washed and dried and hung on hangers. Check the pockets. Books: Price them cheaply enough and they’ll move quickly. Flip through the books to make sure you haven’t left anything between the pages. Cash only: Put up a sign that says you’ll only take cash -- and stick to it. If someone wants something, be willing to “hold” an item for a few minutes while your customer runs to the nearest ATM. Generally, however, people know they’re going to spend money at yard sales, and they bring the cash they need. Table displays: Have enough tables so that merchandise is up off the ground. Don’t make people bend over and paw through boxes of stuff under a table, especially clothing and books. Paper or plastic? Collect plastic grocery bags for people to use. Be honest: If the printer doesn’t do color photos well but is great with black ink, say so on the price sticker. Making change: Have plenty of bills and coins to make change. Designate a family member to run the cash box -- and not leave it unattended for a second. Even better: Use a pouch Page 19 that belts around your waist.

SLOW AGING FROM THE INSIDE OUT Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ products help eliminate harmful toxins and impurities from the body that can accelerate the aging process. These products also replenish the body with crucial nutrients for optimal health. The Rejuvity and other anti-aging products also address the need for optimal cellular nutrition that ultimately creates a new level of wellness, vitality, and youthful appearance from the inside out. 2. ADDRESS AGING ON ALL FRONTS-NOT JUST SKIN The skin is largely an indication of how the body is aging. If the body has been abused, neglected and malnourished, then the skin will reflect this. However, if the body’s cells, tissues and organs are protected from harmful pollutants and replenished with crucial nutrients, the skin will reflect this level of health by appearing vibrant, glowing and youthful. 3. NO HARSH CHEMICALS OR IRRITANTS The anti-aging products in the Rejuvity and IsaDermix® lines do not use any harsh, irritating chemicals or compounds, including phthalates or parabens. Other common products that include harsh compounds often require downtime and may damage the skin further. 4. PROMOTE SKIN’S NATURAL PROCESSES Ageless Renewal Serum and other anti-aging skin products help minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles, support collagen production, improve elasticity and tone, and increase firmness by helping the skin remember what it has forgotten as we age. 5. BOOST ENERGY, VITALITY, AND OVERALL HEALTH In addition to the superior skin care, Rejuvity and other Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing products slow biological aging of the entire body, leading to enhanced energy and a new level of vitality and improved overall wellness. 6. SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE All of the ingredients in Rejuvity and the other Isagenix anti-aging and replenishing products are supported by scientific research. In addition, many of the company’s own products - including Ageless Renewal Serum - have been specifically investigated in scientific trials with extremely positive results. A recent trial on Ageless Renewal Serum showed a 92% increase in the overall improvement of the skin, and the CoQ10 used in Ageless Actives has been shown to be 800% more absorbable than standard powder forms used in other products. 7. SUPERIOR QUALITY Isagenix prides itself in using only the highest quality ingredients. With Rejuvity and other anti-aging product lines, this commitment to quality continues. 8. UNMATCHED INGREDIENT FORMULATIONS All of the Isagenix product lines boast unmatched ingredient profiles you can’t find in any other product. These include the growth factors, polypeptides and actives in Ageless Renewal Serum, the lipid-based CoQ10 in Ageless Actives, and many more. 9. ISAGENIX IS AHEAD OF THE CURVE The Isagenix Quality, Regulatory, Technology, Science (QRTS) teams use the latest scientific research to create life-changing products, thus solidifying its position as an industry leader. 10. AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE REPLENISHING CATEGORY Isagenix is the creator of the Replenishing product category. Its anti-aging product lines continue to solidify this position as the company continues to develop new products within this category. ������������ 307-529-0166 ������������ Neal & Cindy Lein ������������������������������ Independent Isagenix Associates NLein.Isagenix.com ��������������������� These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
