• On May 24, 1844, in a demonstration witnessed by members of Congress, American inventor Samuel F.B. Morse dispatches a telegraph message from the U.S. Capitol to a railroad station in Baltimore. The message -- "What Hath God Wrought?" -- was telegraphed back to the Capitol a moment later. • On May 22, 1859, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of master sleuth Sherlock Holmes, is born in Scotland. His first Sherlock Holmes story, "A Study in Scarlet," was published in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887. • On May 25, 1927, Robert Ludlum, author of 25 thrillers, is born in New York City. Although he never earned a reputation as a masterful prose stylist, his suspenseful stories such as "The Bourne Identity" gripped a wide readership. As a critic for The Washington Post noted about one Ludlum novel: "It's a lousy book. So I stayed up until 3 a.m. to finish it." • On May 23, 1934, notorious criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are shot to death by Texas and Louisiana state police while driving a stolen car near Sailes, La. All told, the Barrow Gang was believed responsible for the deaths of 13 people, including nine police officers. • On May 26, 1940,

May 9 - 15, 2013 President Franklin Roosevelt makes a radio appeal for the support of the Red Cross. Belgian and French civilians were "running from their homes to escape bombs and shells and machine gunning, without shelter, and almost wholly without food," broadcast FDR. • On May 20, 1956, the United States conducts the first airborne test of an improved hydrogen bomb, dropping it from a plane over the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. Observers said that the fireball caused by the explosion measured at least 4 miles in diameter and was brighter than the light from 500 suns. • On May 21, 1978, 21-yearold rookie golfer Nancy Lopez defeats her childhood hero, JoAnne Carner, on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the Coca-Cola-Classic in Jamesburg, N.J.

How Safe Is Your Local Hospital?

Here’s a little test: Do you know what C. diff is? How about MRSA? Do you know how many people die each year due to hospital errors? Answers: C. diff and MRSA are two of the serious illnesses that can come from hospital stays. The number of deaths is 180,0000. If you or a member of your family ever needs to stay in a hospital, how much do you know about the levels of safety at your local hospital? If you have a choice between multiple hospitals in your

area, do you know the best one for the procedure you need? AARP (yes, the organization for seniors) has an article in its April/May issue about the safest hospitals in the country and how they got that way. (You can also read it online at www.aarp.org.) For example, one Michigan hospital employs 20 trained technicians simply to take detailed drug histories from the patients. In one Pennsylvania hospital, a bar-coding system on medications, matched up to a bar-coded patient bracelet, has reduced the number of errors from two in 100,000 to two in 1 million. The link at the end of the article details the super hospitals, the ones that have made great strides in patient safety. Notice that there are only 24 states listed. That doesn’t mean there aren’t good hospital in the other states, but you’ll have to look for them elsewhere. Check Leapfrog Hospital Survey [www.leapfroggroup.org/cp] to compare either overall patient safety ratings or the safety of selected procedures at a hospital near you. Click the box on

the left of each one you’re interested in, and at the bottom of the screen click on Compare. Also see Hospital Safety Score (www.hospit alsafetyscore.org). Put in your ZIP code and the map will show the ratings of all the hospitals in your area. Of the ratings, “A” is the best. Scroll down and click on each hospital to find detailed information. The AARP article lists four ways to protect yourself against something bad happening in the hospital: 1) Check the hospital’s credentials at The Joint Commission (qualitycheck.org); 2) Ask questions, and you’ll have a better outcome; 3) Bring someone with you to watch and listen to what is going on around you; 4) Be persistent in demanding that standard procedures be followed. A hospital stay can be frightening, but choosing the best hospital may get you a better outcome.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

When Skin Patches Lose All Color

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have vitiligo, and it keeps spreading over my body. My father had it on his legs. I’m an older lady of brown complexion. This vitiligo is so embarrassing. I wear slacks every day, except to church.

Do you know of any cover-ups for it? --C. ANSWER: Vitiligo is the loss of special skin cells called melanocytes, cells that produce the pigment melanin, which gives skin its color. The loss comes about because of an immune attack on those pigment cells. Genes are one of the ingredients that lead to vitiligo. Your father is an example of the genetic influence. The skin patches devoid of melanocytes and melanin become chalky white and are most noticeable on people with dark skin. The patches appear on the face, in circles around the mouth and eyes, on the neck, trunk, arms and legs. Stronger varieties of cortisone in creams, lotions and gels often can coax melanocytes back into the depigmented skin. Many users have enjoyed success with skin applications of pimecrolimus (Elidel cream) or tacrolimus (Protopic ointment). Ultraviolet light, along with the oral psoralen drugs, is another way of repigmenting vitiliginous skin. Quite a few people with vitiligo find it more convenient to apply cosmetic agents to cover the white patches and make them blend with adjacent skin. Covermark (800-524-1120), Dermablend (800-662-8011) and Cover Fx (416-665-7444) are three popular products. I’ve included the phone numbers of the manufacturers in case

you cannot find the products in your area. The National Vitiligo Foundation, Inc., will provide you with information on the many ways that vitiligo is treated. The website is www.nvfi.org, and the phone number (not toll-free) is 513-541-3903. You’ll find the foundation to be a friend that can help you cope with vitiligo. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Our friend, age 86, has Alzheimer’s disease. She sees a neurologist every four months. Some days, she is lucid; other days, she’s out in left field. She lives alone and drives a car. She recently got lost, but recovered and came home safely. Her children live out of town. We, her friends, think the time has come for our friend to give up independent living. What criteria are used to make this decision? -- C.F. ANSWER: Your friend’s lapses fill the criteria that indicate a need for assisted living. Although 50 percent of people with a degree of dementia make this decision for themselves, that leaves 50 percent who do not. Giving up one’s home and one’s car has unpleasant ramifications for that half who want to continue living independently. Close relatives can convince these people that they need help. A doctor can step in and strongly advise such moves. You and your friends would do this woman a service by contacting her children and telling them exactly what you have told me. The booklet on Alzheimer’s diseases discusses it and its treatments. Reader can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 903W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475.

Brake For Problems By Ronda Addy

What do you consider to be the most important part of your vehicle? If you think it’s the brakes, you are correct because without the ability to stop your vehicle, you’re like a projectile in search of a target. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to your brakes. There are a number of problems you can experience with your brakes. Some of these include: • Clunking brakes may indicate that the bolts holding the brakes together are loose. You could also have worn

or broken suspension components. • Spongy or weak brakes may indicate low or contaminated brake fluid. If the fluid is contaminated, you will have to bleed your brakes and put in new fluid. You could also have worn brake pads. • Squeaky or whiny brakes may indicate worn brake pads. There is a small metal gasket between the brake pad and the piston that absorbs vibrations. When it becomes worn, squealing occurs. The gasket must be replaced or at the very least coated with an anti-squeal lubricant. • Brakes grabbing or pulling may indicate worn or contaminated brake pads or discs. Either way, the

May 9 - 15, 2013 brakes will need to be replaced. Page 19 • A brake pedal that goes down too far before you start to slow down may indicate low or contaminated brake fluid, worn brake pads or a bad brake power boost unit. To check the brake booster, you will need a special vacuum measurement device. • Too firm of a brake pedal may indicate a problem with the vacuum system. If there is nothing wrong with the system, check your brake booster unit. Something may be blocking your brake fluid line, thereby preventing the fluid from reaching its destination. • A brake pedal that goes to the floor may indicate no brake pressure due to low brake fluid or air in the brake fluid. If air is the culprit, you will need to bleed your brakes and replace the fluid. You could also have a bad master cylinder. • Pedal vibration at any time other than when braking hard may indicate contaminated brake pads, bad brake discs, misalignment or worn front suspension. If you think you have a brake problem, ignoring it won’t make it go away. The problem will only get worse, endangering not only you and your passengers but others on the road. Don’t ignore the warning signs.

• It was French Enlightenment author Voltaire who made the following sage observation: “Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” • If you’re like the average American, you laugh 15 times every day. • Have you ever heard of an artist by the name of John Banvard? You’re to be forgiven if the name is unfamiliar; few people these days remember him. In the mid-19th century, though, he was something of a phenomenon. In 1840, the then-25-year-old man set off on a skiff down the Mississippi River. He spent more than a year on the river, sketching steadily along the way. After he completed the voyage, he spent another five years painting his “Panorama of the Mississippi,” an ambitious work that was 12 feet wide and more than 3 miles long. When completed, the painting was mounted on two upright revolving cylinders and displayed for the paying public throughout the U.S. and Europe, earning him $200,000 along the way. • In the 1960s, the miniskirt was still controversial. Both the Vatican City and Disneyland refused entrance to women wearing the short skirts. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Volume 8, Week 18 THIS IS A HAMMER By Samantha Mazzotta

Kid-Tough Baseboards Q: For a recent do-it-yourself project, I replaced the baseboard along two walls of the kids’ playroom with a length of two-by-four wood. The kids tend to ram their toys into the base of the wall and this dented and marred the original baseboard and even damaged the drywall behind it. I removed the original baseboard. I also patched the damaged sections of drywall by cutting them away and replacing with new pieces of drywall held in place with wooden strips behind the drywall. This also helped to reinforce the base of the wall. Next, at my home-improvement store, I had two pieces of 2-by-4 cut to the length of each wall’s base. I left a quarter-inch off each end because I decided to leave the baseboard in place on the other walls. There was one error here: I had to re-cut one piece of wood because I forgot the two pieces would intersect at one corner. But it was not too difficult to saw off a couple of inches from one end. I attached the new “bumper boards” to the wall studs. To make it easier, I located and marked the studs first, then pre-drilled the boards. Once the boards were in place, I attached them to the studs using 4-inch wood screws, countersunk the screw heads slightly and covered with wood putty to hide them from the kids. Finally, I painted the new boards. The plain wood tended to soak up paint, so I had to put on two coats of primer first. Then I painted them with a “kid-resistant” paint (available at any paint store) with an eggshell finish that is easier to wipe clean. Once the kids are grown, I will likely replace the bumper boards with regular baseboard. You can save the old baseboard, but mine is too damaged, so I plan to scrap it and start

fresh. Hope your readers can benefit from my experience! -- Sam G., Baltimore A: That sounds like a great fix for the playroom. Thanks for sharing! Readers, to remove baseboard without damaging the drywall beneath or marring the paint, first run a box cutter or a small putty knife along the top of the baseboard to separate paint, glue or other material from the wall. Next, using a nail set (or a sturdy nail) and a hammer, locate the larger anchoring nails along the baseboard, place the nail set against the nail head, and hammer a few times. This will push the baseboard back slightly, creating a gap. Use a small prybar to pull the board away from the wall. To protect the wall, hold a piece of scrap wood against the wall and lean the prybar against it. Once the baseboard pulls away, you can either remove the finishing nails from the drywall or pound them in, so they don’t stick out. Before storing or tossing the old baseboard, remove nails from it or hammer them to the side to keep others from getting injured. HOME TIP: Rub beeswax or bar soap onto the threads of a wood screw, and it will be easier to screw into solid wood boards or studs. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.
