Q: Why didn’t they make two Yogi Bears? A: Because someone made a Boo Boo.

1. Who was a regular attendee of Little Dipper School? 2. Who lived at 301 Cobblestone Lane?

1. Before Mickey Mouse was introduced, who was ranked as the world’s most popular cartoon character? 2. What was inspired by a 1954 Ford concept car, the FX-Atmos? 3. What furry mammal led a pack of con artists who regularly tried to outsmart Officer Dibble? 4. Who was the sidekick of Quick Draw McGraw? 5. Who was warned in the opening theme, “Watch out for that tree!”?

“I’m not interested in pleasing the critics. I’ll take my chances pleasing the audiences.” – Walt Disney

Debuting in 1958, Yogi Bear made his way across Jellystone Park, helping himself to pick-a-nic baskets from campers along the way, accompanied by his bow-tied sidekick, Boo-Boo. Ranger Smith did his best to keep Yogi in line. Yogi countered Boo-Boo’s warning of “But Yogi, Mr. Ranger isn’t gonna like this,” with, “I’m smarter than the average bear!”

Composting is one of the best things you can do for your garden. Putting your egg shells, vegetable peels and other organic matter in the garden can enrich the fertility of your soil, promote plants’ root development, and boost the soil’s ability to hold water. It’s also an alternative to chemical fertilizers. All that along with reducing landfill waste!

Sliding-Glass Door Won’t Glide Freely By Samantha Mazzotta

Q: I have a sliding-glass door leading to my porch, and it sticks very badly on opening and closing. How can I fix this? -- Joyce in West Palm Beach, Fla. A: Sticking or even hopping out of its track is a common problem for sliding doors, and one that can be prevented with regular cleaning and maintenance. Get in there right away with a vacuum (small handheld or a small vacuum hose attachment) and suck up all the loose dirt and debris that is cluttering up the metal track running under the door. This is the groove in which the door slides, and if it’s dirty or gunky the door won’t slide smoothly. Use a toothbrush and a damp cloth to scrub away gunky spots. Next, inspect both the track and the door rollers. If the track is bent, it can be straightened by placing a thin but sturdy wooden block in the track over the bent area, bracing it with a foot or your hand, and then hammering the

area until it’s straight. Worn or bent rollers need to be replaced. If everything looks OK or has been fixed, lubricate the rollers (an all-purpose spray lubricant like WD-40 should be fine) and slide the door open and shut to work the lubricant in. The door should roll more smoothly now, but if it still doesn’t seem right or is jumping out of its track, you can adjust the height of the sliding door so the roller moves more easily. An adjustment or mounting screw should be located where the door is mounted to its frame. Turning the screw counterclockwise will lower the door slightly; turning it clockwise will raise the door (although due to its weight, you will need a helper to carefully lift the door upward, using a pry bar while you turn the screw). HOME TIP: Sliding-glass doors are quite heavy, so if you need to lift or remove a door for any reason, always have one or more helpers to assist. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Yaks are divided into two species: domestic and wild. Domestic yak are smaller, have a less shaggy coat, and probably originated from wild Tibetan yak. Domestic yak are used for travel and as draft animals. They are also valued for their milk, meat, wool, and dung. Domestic yak are more varied in colors than wild yak.

WALT DISNEY

Nearly everyone on Earth is familiar with the creations of genius Walt Disney. Follow his path from humble beginnings on a Missouri farm to film mogul and theme partk creator. • An artist from childhood, Disney was already selling sketches at age seven. In high school, he worked on the school newspaper while attending night school at the Academy of Fine Arts.

3rd Quarter 2010 Week 32 Aug 1 - Aug 7 Page 7

• In 1918, Walt tried to enlist in the military but was turned away because he was only 16. His alternative was to sign up with the Red Cross, who sent him overseas. He spent a year driving an ambulance, decorated from top to bottom with his drawings and cartoons. He served in a unit with Ray Kroc, who, decades later, would found the McDonald’s fast food chain. •

Disney’s career in advertising began after the conclusion of World War I. In 1920, he created his first animated cartoons, and three years later, headed for Hollywood with $40 to his name. He joined up with his brother Roy, and the two borrowed $500 and built a camera stand in their uncle’s garage where they started production of cartoon “featurettes.”

• Mickey Mouse hit the big screen in 1928, and four years later, Disney was awarded the first of his many Oscars for a film entitled “Flowers and Trees.” • In the midst of the Great Depression, Disney produced “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” for the astronomical sum of $1,499,000. It took two million illustrations using 1,500 shades of paint to create the 1937 masterpiece. Fifty different names were considered for the dwarfs, including Gabby, Blabby, Hotsy, Nifty and Shifty. Disney had first conceived the idea for the film at age 15, when he saw a silent film version of the tale.

July 29 - August 4, 2010

Hiring Contractors for Remodeling If you have a remodeling project in mind, late summer is a good time to line up your contractors. Construction crews are coming to the end of their busy season and looking for work to keep themselves going over the cooler months, especially the winter. Before you begin: Take written bids from at least three contractors. Be detailed in your specifications when it comes to the type of wood you want, the model and color of cabinets, the number of coats of a specific paint, etc. Ask for references of any contractors you interview, of course, and call them. Ask if the project was completed on time and at the promised cost. But don't stop there.

While it's still warm and crews are out, drive around your area and make note of the addresses of homes where work is being done, as well as the company name and phone number of any work vehicles in the yard. When the projects are complete, approach the homeowners and ask whether they were satisfied with the work. They might even show you around to see the completed project. Make sure any contract you write is for a fixed price that includes materials and labor. That way you know the bottom line. If you sign a standard contract, read it carefully. Remember: If it's not in writing, it doesn't exist. Don't agree to any clause that can change the deadline, price or materials on your job. While it's tempting to save money by acting as your own general contractor, you may be happier in the long run if you hire a residential general contractor with the expertise to order supplies and hire and

schedule sub-contractors. Remember that while the general contractor will be responsible for a lot of things, you can't step completely out of the process. With liability insurance and workers' comp, for example, all crews who step foot on your property need to produce a copy of their certificate before they begin work. When new materials show up, be there when it's being unloaded and look for damaged or missing material. The general contractor also is responsible for paying the sub-contractors, so you need to require a performance bond to be in place for all levels of contractors.

Page 8 WALT DISNEY (continued): • Although “Snow White” featured eight songs, 25 songs were originally composed for the feature. It quickly became the highest grossing film of all time, a record it held only until 1939, when “Gone with the Wind” surpassed it. Walt built Disney Studios in Burbank, California, with the profits from “Snow White.” Over the next five years, he released “Pinocchio,” “Fantasia,” “Dumbo” and “Bambi.” • As early as August of 1948, Walt Disney was thinking of building an amusement park called “Mickey Mouse Park.” In 1955, he opened his 400-acre Magic Kingdom, Disneyland, in Anaheim, with a price tag of $17 million. It was Walt’s intention that Disneyland would, “never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world.” Indeed, new attractions are added on a regular basis. •

With his eye on the future, Walt purchased 28,000 acres in Florida for another theme park but didn’t live to see its construction. Walt Disney World opened in 1971, five years after Walt’s death. Strangely enough, Disneyland is in Orange County, California, and Walt Disney World’s location is Orange County, Florida.

• Walt Disney was the recipient of more than 950 awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor, awarded to him at the White House in 1964 by President Lyndon Johnson. Walt holds the record for the most Academy Awards and received honorary degrees from Harvard, Yale, the University of Southern California and UCLA.
