No COLA Increase

The news isn’t good. There has been lots of talk about the Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) for the year 2011. And now we know: We won’t see an increase in our monthly checks. Many of us already live close to the edge. With the cost of everything going up -- food, gas, utilities, clothing, medical (and never mind having any fun by going out to a movie or the occasional dinner) -- we’re going to be squeezed tighter than ever. Many of my friends are getting angry and making plans on how to survive with less. That’s my stance on it, too: Figuring out how to make it work. Here are some of their ideas: • Join a movie club, one that delivers DVDs

November 4 - 10, 2010 right to your door in the mail, and split the cost with some friends. Swap the movie around or get together once a week to watch the latest film. • Don’t buy holiday gifts for family this year, or send one check as a family gift. • Pool your resources where possible. Go in with a few friends on bulk groceries and divide them into smaller amounts. Go on errands together in one car, or use the van if you live in a retirement center. • Ask the senior center or even the library to host a meeting to exchange ideas on how to save, signing up with others for car rides and bulk purchases, or bartering and swapping. • Ask your doctor for generics on every prescription you have, and buy them at Walmart or other stores offering $4 prescriptions, if possible. Remember: We can be tough if we have to be, and we can do this. All it takes is an attitude adjustment, right?

Q: I think I've missed a couple of episodes of "Lone Star" on Fox. Is it coming back on? -- Mike M., Newark, Ohio Q: I fell in love with the ABC summer series "The Gates." Do you have any idea if it will be brought back, maybe as a midseason replacement? I really need to know what happens! -- Karen D. in Virginia A: "Lone Star" was the first casualty of the fall 2010 season. Despite rave reviews and being the critics' darling, low ratings forced Fox to pull the series after only two episodes. And the same fate seems to have befallen the summer series "The Gates" (which was one of my favorite shows of the year) and "Scoundrels." On Oct. 15, "The Gates" star Frank Grillo tweeted: "Don't shoot the messenger ... "The Gates" is officially canceled. I knew my source was right. Thanks to all of you for supporting us." As of this writing, ABC's "My Generation" and

NBC's "Outlaw" (starring Jimmy Smits) also are kaput. One the cusp of cancellation -- however, they still could be saved -- are "Undercovers" and "Running Wilde." ••• Q: Last season on "The Mentalist," there was an actor on one of the episodes playing the role of a billionaire who really resembles Kevin Spacey. Who is he, and what else can I see him in? -- Jay F., via e-mail A: You're thinking of 43-year-old Canadian actor Currie Graham. Most recently he co-starred with Jaime Pressly in "Smoke Screen," a made-for-TV movie based on the Sandra Brown novel. The movie premieres Sunday night, Nov. 21, on the Lifetime Movie Network. ••• Q: Sean Murray of "NCIS" sure has lost a lot of weight. Is he ill or on some sort of a diet? -- Mrs. G., Venice, Fla. A: Sean, who turns 33 on Nov. 15, explained via his Twitter account that his weight loss came from "14 months of no alcohol and almost no sugar. Ate strictly organic. ... You can actually see me gradually lose the weight over the 24 (episodes) of Season 7; a

pound every week or two." ••• Q: I enjoy watching classic black-and-white movies on television. What does "RKO" stand for in the RKO Pictures logo? -- Tashi G., Dearborn, Mich. A: RKO stands for "Radio-Keith-Orpheum." RKO was formed after the Keith-Albee-Orpheum (KAO) theater chains brought together under the control of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) back in 1928.

Triglycerides Can Clog Arteries DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What are triglycerides? What do they do to you? I am a 55-year-old male in good health, or so I thought. My lab tests have shown I have elevated triglycerides. My doctor believes I need to make funeral arrangements. He told me to cut down on fats. I have never eaten much fat. I don't use butter. How do I get my level down? -- R.F. ANSWER: Triglycerides are fats. The marbling in meat and the stuff that surrounds a cut of meat are triglycerides. In the blood, they are not solids. They're a source of energy for body cells. Excess amounts are stored as fat. Cholesterol gets all the blame for clogging heart arteries and causing heart attacks. But triglycerides bear part of the blame. A very high blood triglyceride level inflames the pancreas -- pancreatitis. That happens, but is a somewhat rare event compared with other causes of pancreatitis. The normal triglyceride reading should be less than 150 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L). Values between 150 and 199 (1.7 to 2.2) are considered borderline high. Anything above 500 (5.6) is very high. Weight reduction almost always brings down triglycerides. Fatty foods, fatty meats and fried foods should be eaten sparingly. Surprisingly, sugar raises triglycerides, as does immoderate alcohol drinking. Omega-3 fatty acids lower them. Fish -- a good source of omega-3 fatty acids -- therefore, ought to be a major part of two weekly meals. If you don't like the taste of fish, you can take omega-3 in pills. I know people must cringe when they hear exercise mentioned, as it appears to be a panacea for every ill. A half-hour of brisk walking on most days of the week reliably lowers triglycerides. You can start more modestly, and work your way to the 30-minute goal. If none of these lowers your triglycerides, medicines can. Lopid, Tricor and niacin are three reliable drugs. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I just received a lab slip from my doctor's office for tests that should be done before my visit. Electrolytes are circled. What are they? They sound like something to do with electricity. -- M.Z. ANSWER: Electrolytes are sodium, potassium, bicarbonate and chloride. They do have something to do with electricity -- they carry a charge. They're involved in a huge number of body processes, including keeping the heart beating, facilitating nerve transmission, helping muscle contractions and maintaining the balance between acids and bases. The booklet on electrolytes describes their functions and details the things that can go wrong when one or other is deficient or excessive. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 202W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) 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 have trouble with weak ankles. I am always twisting one or the other. Which

is better for me -- tape or an elastic brace? -- T.J. ANSWER: I take you to mean you have this problem when you're jogging or running. An elastic wrap provides longer-lasting support for the ankles than tape does. Tape loses its gripping power somewhat quickly. •••

Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. © 2010 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Animal House" Trumps the Oscars MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Nothing wrong with NASCAR can't be fixed by a race at Martinsville Speedway. Some people are going to disagree. They're the ones who think every race should be in some place like Las Vegas. They're the ones who believed Gillian Zucker, president of Auto Club Speedway, when she claimed that she couldn't draw a crowd in February because of -- get this! -- the Academy Awards. As if there were fans saying, "I'd love to see that race, but I just can't leave without knowing if 'Hurt Locker' won the Oscar." Who can give it up for Jimmie Johnson when Dame Judi Dench is on the tube? Some of those fans watched the Tums Fast Relief 500 on television -- and probably had a jolly good time making stupid jokes about its title -- and the wonders of Martinsville probably seemed elusive.

On TV, racin' at Martinsville looks more like a homecoming parade in fast-forward. Up close and in person, its more fun than a barrel of monkeys. (Photo: Getty Images)

Something about television makes race cars look slower. Martinsville can look like a Homecoming Parade in fast-forward. Specifically, it can look like the Homecoming Parade in "Animal House," complete with calls for "ramming speed" and an abundance of profanity among the participants. Do not judge Martinsville if you've never been there. On TV, it also looks a great deal like bumper cars at the county fair. Up close -- and by that, I mean, in the lower rows of the grandstands, squinting at cars flashing by and trying to keep dust, grime and oil out of the eyes -- it looks as if all the cars were constructed by NASA, not organizations with names like Furniture Row Racing. It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys. At the end, unflappable guys like Jeff Burton are ... flappable. Being a race driver, Burton sometimes seems embarrassed by the perception that he has good sense. Maniacs are more the norm in the circus to which he ran away many years ago. After Burton's teammate, Kevin Harvick, got mad at him, Burton's first reaction was to defend himself ("There is nothing I did that I regret, and there is nothing I won't do next week.") and his second was to take mild offense that he acted like everyone else. "I drive like that every week," he snapped. "I have this reputation of being a passive driver, and I drive hard every week. I drove hard this week, but I didn't drive any harder than I normally do." Martinsville would be a lot better place to have every race than Vegas, solely on the basis of the post-race quotes. ••• Monte Dutton has covered motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette since 1993.

Space in The Closet

By Tresa Erickson

Are you in desperate need of a home office? Is that corner of your dining room table no longer doing the trick? Are your files and papers a jumbled mess simply because you have no place to put them? Well, then, it might be time to look around and find a more suitable place for your home office. Chances are you don’t have a spare room, or you would already be using it as a home office, right? How about a spare closet? Do you have an extra closet somewhere in the house that you could clean out and use for a home office? Many people in need of a home office turn to a closet. Adapting a closet into a home office takes some time and creative thinking. Most closets are small, so you have to use the space wisely. You will probably need a desk and some sort of shelving unit to house your supplies and equipment. You may purchase these from a closet design company or create your own. If designing your own desk, make sure you use quality lumber for the top or a thick piece of plywood that you can cover with laminate. You may also be able to use a solid-core door. You can purchase ready-made legs, create your own or use file cabinets to serve as the base. As for a chair, you can purchase one that folds down so you can keep it in the closet

����������� �������������������

www.Herbadashery.com

or use one that you can leave in the room when you are done working. You will probably need access to electricity, so if your closet doesn’t have any outlets, you may need to hire an electrician. If you have a computer, you may need to contact your phone or cable company to install an additional line in your closet so you can have Internet service. Once you have the necessities in order, you can focus on storage. Make sure you take advantage of every available space, using shelves, stackable organizers, baskets and more. Consider using chalkboard or magnetic paint on the back wall to provide a place for writing or attaching notes. The best part about a home office contained within a closet is you can shut the doors when your work is done. Of course, your closet doors may or may not suit your purposes. If they slide, they may only allow you access to one side. In that case, folding doors or curtains may be better. Whatever you choose, you can close up the space when you are done and never have to worry about someone dropping by and seeing your mess. The clutter of your home office will be contained behind closed doors.

Fleas Aren't Always Obvious DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My 6-month-old Lab mix, "Charlie," scratches and bites at his fur a lot. This started a couple of weeks ago, and he scratches most of the day. Does he have fleas? I can't see any. - Darlene H., Baton Rouge DEAR DARLENE: It's entirely possible for your pet to have fleas without you being able to see them or experiencing their itchy bites yourself. If there is one telltale indicator of infestation, however, it's "flea dirt": tiny black flecks in his fur or on his skin that look kind of like black pepper. But he may not even have that, at first. Charlie also could be having an allergic reaction to something. He could even have a flea or two and be having an allergic reaction to their bites. You can check for this by looking at the skin of his hind legs and at the base of his tail. Are there small red bumps raised there? If you find evidence of fleas but no other

problems (like allergic reaction, infected scratch marks, etc.), treat Charlie for fleas and monitor him more closely than usual for a few weeks to make sure scratching does not resume. In addition, treat your home and entryways to prevent fleas and increase the number of times per week you vacuum (and be sure to change the vacuum bag frequently too). If you can't find fleas or their evidence, or he keeps scratching after treatment, take Charlie to the veterinarian to look for other problems like allergies, skin disease or a hidden illness.

By Samantha Weaver

He died of pneumonia just 32 days after taking office. • In 1666, the Great Fire of London destroyed 13,200 homes, 87 parish churches and St. Paul's Cathedral, and it left some 70,000 people homeless. It also provided the impetus for the beginning of the insurance industry. After the conflagration, Nicholas Barbon, a well-to-do doctor, realized how much of his wealth was flammable. A year after the Great Fire, he began the world's first insurance company. • The men and women who venture into space have to adapt themselves to changing environments both when they enter space and when they return home. Many astronauts and

cosmonauts say that one of the most difficult things to adjust to when returning to earth from space is the fact that when you let go of something, it falls to the ground. • If you're a longtime football fan, you might not be surprised to learn that between 1983 and 2006, the average weight of NFL players rose by 10 percent. © 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.
