The camera is actually placed just inside your ear canal. It will allow you to see all the way to your eardrum. The value of this procedure is that it may help you understand why you may be experiencing difficulties with your hearing like: • Hearing but not understanding certain words • Difficulty understanding conversation in noisy environments like restaurants • Frequently asking people to repeat themselves • Having to turn the TV up loud in order to understand what is being said Using the Video Otoscope, a hearing instrument specialist will be able to determine whether your hearing difficulties are being caused by simple ear wax. This exam may also reveal such common problems as: • Damage to the eardrum • Fluid accumulation in the middle ear • Other conditions which may make it difficult to hear clearly You will also receive a FREE hearing evaluation* to help further determine the type and cause of your hearing difficulties.

THERE IS NO CHARGE OR OBLIGATION FOR THESE SERVICES. Sincerely, Dan Allen Dan Allen, HAS Owner, Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist DAAH-1-0619-90171 *Hearing Evaluation & video otoscopic inspection are not intended to replace a physician's care.

Sweet Land of Liberty...

W

hen Memorial Day came around, it brought to mind memories of the phone call we received from our son, Gary, who had just finished training for duty in the Army. He felt sure he would be going to Vietnam but he called to say that he would be serving in the Old Guard. It was during a time of war and it was a big surprise learning that he would be located in Washington, D.C. Knowing that, we inquired about the Old Guard and were told that those chosen were the “only son of an only son.” (Never knew for sure if that was so, but it fit the bill and was surely easily acceptable to us). Mission of the Old Guard is to conduct military affairs to honor our comrades, ceremonies, and special events to represent the Army, communicating its story to our citizens and to the world. On order, the Old Guard is to conduct defensive support of civil authorities in the National Capitol region—the White House. We read that a member of the Old Guard must be between 5’10” and 6’2 with a waist size of no more than 30”… that the tall members, who are in the E division, commit two years to guarding the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform or the tomb in any way. The first six months of duty, they cannot talk to anyone nor watch TV. Off duty time is spent studying and memorizing the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. As a member of the A division, Gary’s duties were most often the 21-gun salute, military funerals; marching in parades; cordoning off the streets to allow careful traveling for automobiles of visiting dignitaries. They were also the ones who placed (and removed) the American flags on each grave in Arlington Cemetery for Memorial Day weekend. One time, when Gary came home on leave, he spent some time at the beach and felt like he got too much sun. He said he had better not be sunburned for that would be considered destroying government property. That time of Gary’s life comes home to us each year when we see the gravestones

at Arlington National Cemetery, graced by U.S. flags on Memorial Day weekend. While our son was there, I remember seeing a picture of two members of the Old Guard in the newspaper and being absolutely sure that the one on the right was our son. I cut out the picture and kept it handy to show my friends. When Gary came home he said, “That wasn’t me.” Oh, well, I enjoyed the thought.

You Name It …by Kitty Maiden

In time, patriotic holidays like Memorial Day have become long weekends—not only a day to visit lost loved ones at the cemetery, but a family event, an opportunity for getting together, having a picnic, going to the beach, and in many ways, celebrating. In the midst of all are the sober memories of those who gave their lives serving our country. We give thanks to them for keeping us safe for such a long time. Now we are coming upon another most important holiday, the day our democracy was born. We claimed our independence from Britain on July 4, 1776. From that day forward, many thousands have left their homelands to join us in the land of the free. This diverse nation, the United States of America, continues to celebrate the July 4th—with 237 years of enjoying the American dream. There are parades, family gatherings, civic affairs, concerts, barbecues, vacations—many ways of enjoying this special time of the year. To all America, let’s make this another Happy Birthday! There is currently an online request as to whether we think our school children should be saying: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Indeed they should always have the freedom to do so if we are to continue enjoying the freedoms of this great land of ours.

Seniors Serve Town By Serving Breakfast NAPSA

A

group of seniors with imagination and initiative recently demonstrated how committed volunteers can make a difference in a community. When the only breakfast spot in the small farming community of Rochester, Massachusetts closed, the seniors who lived there lost an important gathering spot. Then the volunteers came. Older adults living in the town started a community breakfast program at the nearby senior center—and the volunteers ran the program on their own. Keeping Things Cooking Four years later, the volunteers keep Ye Olde Breakfast Shoppe cooking. The town’s seniors can start their day with a hot meal and smiles from friends who keep them healthy and active. The volunteers reap the health benefits that come from helping others, and running the program keeps them learning every day. The senior center is now helping three times as many people who need counseling, transportation, exercise, wellness programs, and the like. A New Kind Of Volunteer This project is an example of the power of older adult volunteers. Their skills, talents, and passion can make life better for older adults in need. Some are volunteering in new ways, setting their own hours, leading their own projects, and offering the

experience they’ve developed over a lifetime, to help organizations like the Rochester senior center meet rising needs as America ages. The Power Of PowerUP! Through its PowerUP! initiative, the Aging Network’s Volunteer Collaborative, a project of the U.S. Administration on Aging, is striving to create 1 million volunteers in aging and disability services by 2015. ST To learn more about the initiative and how to get involved, visit your aging or disability services organization or go to the website at www.PowerUPVolunteers.org

Fly Your Flag For Freedom by George Goldtrap

H

ow nice it is to see a huge American flag spotlighted atop a high building, over a business, or adorning local thoroughfares. Yes... the flag belongs at the park, the post office, and heading a parade, but it is also at home over a business or residence. For a while it seemed the flag was an endangered species. Some folks mocked ‘Ole Glory’ during the Vietnam era. They seemed to delight in embarrassing the nation with their public displays of disrespect. Fortunately, most of that has faded. Achieving and celebrating our nation’s 200th birthday, helped. Flag raising is no longer flag razing. Why fly a flag? For the same reason you wear a college ring or a wedding ring. Pride. You've made a commitment. It makes a statement about your thinking, your intent, and your freedom. America makes daily contributions to the betterment of the world’s population. Under the stars and stripes America has accepted the world's tired and poor, its huddled masses yearning to be free... its homeless, tempest tossed. Even people who hate the U.S. want to live here. Using freedom, American scientist, researchers, and entrepreneurs have made contributions to the betterment of people everywhere. We are still the world’s most dependable leader. Our medical system has taught us the value of a healthy body. Americans jog 28 million miles daily... seven times the distance of our national roadways. Life span has jumped from 38 to 78 years, and thousands of Americans live to see 100. We've conquered diphtheria, small pox, typhoid, measles, TB, pneumonia, and polio, and we're gaining on hepatitis, sickelcel anemia, MS, MD, cancer, and aids. People around the world are alive today due to our work on the heartlung machine, dialysis, and the CAT scan. Dentists are seemingly putting themselves out of business with better dental care, better toothpaste. The American Red Cross stands as a world beacon in the distribution of safe blood products. We refill 2,000 people every day. Just a few years ago people would have died of diseases that are now eliminated or controlled with something as simply as vaccination. In 1908 manure fleas brought on a cholera epidemic that killed 20,000. That threat is now virtually nonexistent. We are cleanliness

conscious due to constantly rising sanitation standards.

Happy Talk …by George & Peggy Goldtrap

The fight for cleaner air is due in part to the free press. We’ve learned what dirty air does to our health. Who would have thought just a few years ago that smokers would be in the minority and that the pollution it creates would be unwelcome in public areas? Years ago, a German biologist predicted that 1970 would be a year of starvation for this world. Thanks to free enterprise farming, it didn't happen. The year yielded bumper crops in an America that has only 6 percent of the worlds land surface. Less that 3 percent of us are farmers. Our marketplace yields almost endless choices, the result of free agriculture. Food is so abundant we throw out or share with others, 200,000 tons of eatable food daily. The late Dr. Dixy Lee Ray, former governor of a northwestern state once said, “For the first time in history we take for granted that food will be available whenever we wish to buy it.” What other nations can boast of an almost 100 percent guarantee that the public water supply, in even the smallest hamlet, will be safe? Sure there's a lot more to be done. Just walk through the children's ward of any hospital... or through the geriatric ward or through a long term care nursing facility. It'll tear at your heart. Remember, everything is relative to time and time marches on. In America it marches fearlessly. America is beautiful, clean, and healthy. She has her problems, but problems are fraught with opportunity, and opportunity and freedom go together well. America's not perfect. I wouldn’t argue otherwise. We aren't building walls to keep citizens in. America is great because America is good. If she ceases to be good... then she’ll cease to be great! Fly a flag for freedom. Be proud of your American heritage. Happy birthday America! ST George and Peggy Goldtrap are both actors, speakers, and writers living in Ormond By The Sea.

Pet Care Mutts Capture Owners’ Hearts by Sam Mazzotta

Dear Paw’s Corner: What is the most popular dog in the United States? And what about mixed breeds? —Jane in Tuscaloosa, AL Dear Jane: Everyone has a favorite dog or cat, but a number of surveys are done every year trying to figure out which breeds are the most popular. According to the American Kennel Club, the most popular dog breed in 2012 was the Labrador Retriever, which has reigned supreme for a decade. Rounding out the top five are German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Beagles, and Bulldogs, although Yorkshire Terriers often contend for a place on the list, coming in no lower than sixth since 2002. A recent survey conducted for pet food company Royal Canin revealed another heartening statistic. More than 40 percent of cat owners and 28 percent of dog owners preferred mixedbreed pets, rather than purebreds. More owners are choosing pets based on factors other than breed alone. So, how do dog owners choose their pet? According to the survey, size was

the No. 1 factor in their decision of which kind of dog to adopt or purchase. Among cat owners, a cat's appearance was the top factor in choosing their feline companion, according to more than 55 percent of those surveyed. So, while the even-tempered Labrador Retriever continues to be a popular choice for American families, owners looking to adopt a mutt stand in good company with other pet owners.

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 .

If you're a fan of the TV series Dr. Who, you probably know that the title character, a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, has two hearts. This may seem like science fiction (and, of course, it is), but it's not unknown for a human to be born with two hearts. One such example was Giuseppe de Mai, born in Italy in the 19th century. The condition is rare, though; so rare, in fact, that the London Academy of Medicine offered de Mai $15,000 under the condition that it receive his body after his death. ST ***

hat do we really want from life? How do you beat depression and be happy? That seems to be a question many of us have these days. There seems to be a great number of reasons to be depressed and not quite as many to be happy. Whether it is the economy or illness or the loss of loved ones or even the threat of losing your job, there are plenty of reasons to go around depressed. A lot of people feel happiness is on a course to allude them. There have been times over my lifetime that I have had happiness snatched from me, and I understand how they feel. Sometimes our lack of happiness is rooted in what we have done. Other times it has absolutely nothing to do with us, other than it crosses our path and leaves us with sadness. I have heard it said that it is those times that we face darkness in our lives and have happiness stripped from us that make those times we are happy that much more important. That is probably true in the bigger picture of things, but not so easy to understand when we face trials and tribulations. I believe at the core of this, however, is our inability to see the future as a brighter place; a place in which hope and faith can sustain us although most of us accept that every day may not be perfect and that we can deal with life's set backs most of the time. We find ourselves being overloaded with fear of the future and unable to reconnect with being happy. My thoughts are that

we have placed ourselves in a position in which we demand more so therefore our wants are more. I am a baby boomer and I think that is where I will start. I have written on many occasions how as a child

Winding Roads …by Byron Spires

growing up my life was much simpler. Some of that was because my parents were dealing with the life issues of putting food on the table. It is bigger than that. They were the World War II generation; a whole generation of young adults who grew up and fought in a war or were profoundly affected by the idea that they could be invaded or taken over by a foreign country. When the war was over a whole generation of people (10 million served in WWII) had the same basic idea. They wanted a home and children. As a whole they were not interested in saving the world anymore, just the simple life. Maybe that is why happiness alludes us now, because we have put a price tag on what makes us happy. There are many reasons I'm sure that could be attached to our lack of happiness or why we find ourselves depressed. Maybe the time has come that we take a step back and define what we really want from life and not be so dependent on others to tell us.

he American Cancer Society (ACS) just celebrated it's 100th year anniversary. Over the past century, cancer has invaded the lives of virtually every family in America, mine very much included. Love Whole Foods has chosen to pursue its mission statement: support the health and well being of our local community. One of the ways we have done this it to partner with the Florida Memorial Hospital's Cancer Treatment Center. Called Project Hope, this year's event was particularly important because our community's generosity is also being used to fund a new Neonatal Intensive Care Facility. In the last 100 years, cancer has now grown to be the number one disease destroying the lives of prepubescent children in America as well many other countries. Their focus, along with the ACS, is to treat cancer once a victim has been stricken. Love Whole Foods joined with the hospital's food service department to make a simple statement. The best way to defeat cancer is to not get it... and the best way to do that is by fighting it one meal at a time. Meals that need to be designed around life, whole foods with plenty of fruits and vegetables. The hors d'oevres served at this event were fresh salads, raw from scratch salsas, gluten free chips, fresh rainbow colored fruits, and our own real uncontaminated, unflouridated artesian water. We provided a wonderful info sheet called The Colors Of Cancer Prevention written by Dr. Susan Higenbotham, Phd., R.D. of the American Institute of Cancer Research (www.aicr. org). This simple sheet lists the major fruits and veggies that possess phytonutrients which have clinical research confirming their cancer fighting properties. This is critical information for moms with children as well as for cancer survivors who want to stay cancer free. This sheet is displayed at both our stores in our organic produce departments, ask for a copy. While you are there, ask for our in-house magazine with Christy Turlington on the cover. It has great tips on how to cook these delicate foods in order to preserve their phytonutrients as well as making them taste fantastic. We also handed out literature on one of nature's most potent plants in fighting cancer. You know it as Tumeric which is the dominant spice in Indian and Thai cuisine. The root of the tumeric plant (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family, has been used in India for thousands of years as the principle spice used in curry. It is also the key element in Ayurvedic medicine's goal of supporting the body's natural inflammatory response. As discussed in previous articles, systemic inflammation is the root cause of most degenerative diseases-cancer being its ultimate expression. It is ironic that a century ago tumeric's active compound, curcumin, was isolated. This element gives tumeric its vibrant color. Over the years, the health benefits of this nutraceutical have been studied but clinical trials designed to replicate its cancer fighting properties (as well as other benefits) were dogged by absorption problems. Taking

as much as twelve grams of concentrated curcumin powder (not the spice tumeric) failed to be detected in the blood. This lack of absorption meant that the body was breaking it down into other compounds before it reached the tissues being studied. Cancer research money has afforded a breakthrough in this arena. Nutraceutical companies have solved the problem of both absorption and reasonable dosing levels. Natural Factors, based in Vancouver, has taken the lead in developing a proprietary formulation of natural curcumin (not a drug analog) called Theracurmin which utilizes this new delivery system. The result is a dramatic increase in the absorption of curcumin compared to all other commercial forms as evidenced by serum testing. At equal dosing levels, Theracurmin produces blood levels in HUMAN studies 300 times greater than regular curcumin supplements! (Dr. H.Saski, Phd., Improved Bioavailbility, Biol.Pharm. Bull., 2011, 34:660-5). Natural Factors has allowed new research to proceed validating curcumin's multiple benefits using controlled, replicable methodology just like with pharmaceutical drugs. These layered benefits come with virtually no side effects. This precisely why leading cancer treatment centers like MD Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor Research Institute, Dallas, are now doing research of not only curcumin's anti-cancer cell activity, but also for its beneficial effects when used in conjunction with conventional chemo treatment such as reducing the impact of nausea and pain following those treatments. It is a complimentary therapy which your doctor may investigate with Love Whole Foods for more information and contact these renowned institutions for the latest updates. How effective is it? Read Dr. Michael Murray's How To Prevent And Treat Cancer, available at both our locations. It goes into detail on the research done on this miraculous nutraceutical. The best insurance policy to beat cancer: eat whole foods and take supplements to prevent it. Don't want Alzheimer's? Read my article on curcumin's ability to prevent the formation of beta-amyloid plaque. Got pain? In my twenty plus years of helping my customers relieve their pain without drugs. Theracumin is the best antiinflammatory I have ever worked with, period. Want more information? Come to either store and pick up the literature discussed along with The Colors Of Cancer Prevention. Better yet, try the new introductory size Theracumin (30 veggie capsules). We have partnered with Natural Factors to offer all three sized Theracumin (30, 60, and 120) at a remarkable 25 percent off until July 4th. Try it—by the 4th you will have something else to celebrate! Mitch Booth is the owner of Loves Whole Food stores located in Port Orange and Ormond Beach. Visit the website at:

Keep Safety While Shopping For Food

A

ccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), foodbourne illnesses result in 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,200 deaths each year, nationwide. Consumers can play a key role in preventing these illnesses by making food safety a top priority. What can you do? While shopping for food you should keep the following points in mind. • Check for cleanliness. Buying from a retailer who follows proper food handling practices helps assure that the food is safe. Does it look and smell clean? • Keep certain foods separated. Separate raw meat, poultry, and seafood from other foods in your cart. Place these foods in plastic bags to prevent their juices from dripping on the other foods. • Inspect cans and jars. Don’t buy food in cans that are bulging or dented or jars that are cracked or have loose or bulging lids. Don’t buy a food product whose seal seems tampered with or damaged. • Inspect frozen packages. Don’t buy packages that are opened, torn, or crushed on the edges. Look for signs of frost or ice crystals. This could mean that the package has been stored for a long time or has thawed and re-frozen. • Select frozen foods and perishables last. Meat, poultry, fish, and eggs should be the last items you select. Put these items in separate plastic bags to protect other foods from cross-contamination.

Three Great Doctors… With Over Three Decades Of Experience Helping Patients Feel Better! …Still Accepting New Patients

Life …by Kathy M. Bryant • Be mindful of time and temperature. In the summer’s extreme hot temperatures, the interior of parked cars can often reach 90° F or higher. It’s a good idea to have an ice chest to place frozen and perishable cold foods for the ride home. • Make the grocery store you last stop. When the outside is hot, which is almost anytime in Florida, you should make the grocery your last stop on your shopping trip. While grocers and food retailers have much of the responsibility for keeping the food supply safe, consumers play a big role in preventing foodbourne illness by practicing safe handling techniques.

hen scammers try to con you out of your hardearned cash, they are relying on a combination of only two things: their own ability to tell convincing stories and the victim’s tendency to trust anyone claiming to be in a position of authority. Even when scammers use the Internet to ply their trade, they are still using nothing more than a cover story and your trust. Two scams illustrate this point. One scam eventually resulted in two arrests, but not before thousands of dollars were conned out of several trusting victims. A suspect claiming to be a representative of the victim’s bank called one of the victims, a 75-year-old woman, on the telephone. The suspect told her that her bank debit card was invalid. During the conversation, the victim was persuaded to reveal her PIN. Finally, she was told to mail her card to a fake address. The suspects were waiting a short distance from the victim’s home, and right after they saw the card put in the mailbox, they snatched it. The suspects’ story varied at times to match the victim’s situation or simply to naturally go with the flow of the conversation. Sometimes the excuse they gave was that the bank was having computer problems, or maybe the card had expired. Other times they had the victim tape the card to the front door or the mailbox and said that a bank employee would be by to pick it up. If the victim followed instructions, it didn’t take long for the suspect to drain the victim’s bank account. The 75-yearold victim was just one of many who were conned as the suspects swept the Central Florida area. It can be hard to separate the cons from the genuine calls. The suspects can sound very professional, friendly, and convincing. The same can be said of some illicit

e-mails and websites. Scammers use these methods too.

From The Sheriff

‌Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson

An e-mail claiming to be from the FBI had lured many recipients to an official-looking website, complete with the same logo and design that is on the real FBI website. The cover story was about a mass theft of debit cards. Visitors to the site were prompted to provide their account information and told that the FBI could then check to see if the visitor was in any way victimized by the supposed theft. However, by entering the information, the visitor became a victim. Tracking down the owners of fake sites such as this one is difficult. The real FBI investigated the website and determined it was registered to an operator in Switzerland. However, the site was hosted by an Internet service provider here in Florida, and the information victims entered into the site’s forms was sent to a Russian-based e-mail address. Legitimate businesses, such as banks and credit card companies, will not call you to ask for your personal information, especially your PINs and passwords. Furthermore, no legitimate business or organization will ever ask for such information through e-mail or the Internet. Unfortunately, scammers with convincing stories are still able to con unsuspecting victims out of this information. Don’t fall for it! If you get a suspicious call, hang up and dial *69 to get the number of the call you just received. Then report the incident to local law enforcement and your bank. Don’t not report out of embarrassment, you could help save another senior from being a victim! ST


Antiques Vietnam War Script by Larry Cox

Q: My dad was in the Vietnam War, and I have a $5 Military Payment Certificate from 1961. I have been offered $50 for it. —Bob, East St. Louis, MO A: According to Vietnam War Collectibles by David Doyle, U.S. personnel in Vietnam were not paid in cash, but rather in scrip known as Military Payment Certificates (MPC). This was done in an effort to curb black-market activities. When leaving Vietnam, troops could exchange pay certificates for regular U.S. currency. Doyle values your $5 MPC at $125. Of special interest to collectors are those numbered 591, 611, 641, 651, 661, 681, 691, 692 and 701. Beware of reproductions, because some have popped up, especially at military shows. *** Q: I have collected Fenton Glass for several decades. About a third of my collection is Carnival Glass from the 1920s and '30s. What is the best way to sell my collection for the best price. —Kathryn, Spring Branch, TX

A: Since there are dozens of antiques dealers in both Dallas and Houston, I would begin by seeing if there is any interest in your immediate area. Consider investing in a good price guide to help determine values. I especially like Fenton Glass Identification And Price Guide by Mark Moran and published by Krause. You also might consider eBay, since that will provide you with an international marketplace, it should allow you to get the maximum amount. *** Q: I have my first-grade reader from the 1940s, Fun with Dick And Jane. I wonder if it has value. —Barbara, Ramona, CA A: Oh, oh, oh, see Barbara smile when I tell her that the reader is quite collectible and probably worth about $50. Condition is always important, and if there are torn pages or pencil or crayon marks, it certainly will be less. ST Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

On June 21, 1916, the controversial U.S. military expedition against Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa brings the United States and Mexico closer to war when Mexican government troops attack U.S. Gen. John J. Pershing's force at Carrizal, Mexico. The Americans suffered 22 casualties, and more than 30 Mexicans were killed. On June 22, 1937, Joe Louis wins the world heavyweight boxing title when he defeats American Jim Braddock in an eighth-round knockout. Louis was the first black heavyweight champ since Jack Johnson, who lost the title in 1915. On June 20, 1947, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, the man who brought organized crime to the West Coast, is shot and killed. In 1945, Siegel had built the Flamingo Hotel in the middle of the desert, in what would become Las Vegas, with $6 million of the mob's money. When the hotel wasn't immediately profitable, he couldn't pay the money back on time.

On June 17, 1958, a bridge being built to connect eastern and northern Vancouver in western Canada collapses, killing 59 workers. On June 18, 1983, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, the space shuttle Challenger is launched into space on its second mission. Aboard the shuttle was Dr. Sally Ride, who as a mission specialist became the first American woman to travel into space. On June 19, 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court rules against Curt Flood in Flood v. Kuhn, denying Flood free agency as a baseball player. Flood was trying to break the reserve clause that had tied baseball players to one franchise since the establishment of professional baseball. Today, free agency is as much a part of baseball as Cracker Jacks and hot dogs. On June 23, 1992, Mafia boss John Gotti, is sentenced to life in prison. Supporters stormed federal courthouse in Brooklyn and smashed cars before being forced back by police reinforcements. ST

Senior Service Line Why We’re Suckers For Medicare Scams by Matilda Charles

T

he Affordable Care Act was signed in 2010, but at 2,409 pages, it's no wonder so many people don't understand all of it. Seniors especially are hit hard by not knowing what changes to Medicare and Medicaid are coming. That makes us more vulnerable to scammers. A UCLA psychologist, Shelley Taylor, recently did a study to determine why it's easy to scam seniors. In a lab experiment with senior and young adults, seniors rated as trustworthy more pictures of people than the young adults did. We're not picking up on clues. In a more telling experiment using brain imaging, it was discovered that seniors have less brain activity in the region that processes risk and subtle danger. Taylor believes that this is because we seniors have a bias against negativity, that after a certain point in life, there is an effort to make life more positive. The problem for seniors, she says, is that it leaves us unable to recognize untrustworthy cues.

When it comes to Medicare, here are two situations to beware of: 1. You get a call from a health company. You're told that Medicare will pay for some type of medical equipment that you might need. You just need to give them your Medicare number. (Think about it: Why would you give your information to a complete stranger?) 2. You get a call saying that you'll need a new Medicare card because of the Affordable Care Act, but they need to confirm your personal information. (Think about it: If you already have a Medicare card, they already know your information.) If someone has tried to get your Medicare information, report it at 1800-447-8477. ST

This Is A Hammer Kid-Tough Baseboards by Samantha Mazzotta Q: I replaced the baseboard along two walls of the kids' playroom with a length of two-by-four wood. 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. I had two pieces of 2-by-4 cut to the length of each wall's base. I left a quarterinch off each end because I decided to leave the baseboard in place on the other walls. 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. 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 with an eggshell finish that is easier to 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. ST

Here’s An Idea by JoAnn Derson

My mom was dealing with a rough health patch recently, and my dad was in charge of all her doctor visits. There was a lot of follow-up to keep track of, and many different doctors. He used a wallet-size photo holder to corral all the different appointment cards to put them in order of appointment. He did a great job, and Mom's all better now. —Y.R. in Ohio Here's a tip for brides: For a couple of weeks before your wedding, wear your wedding shoes around the house several times a week. This breaks them in, and you will be more comfortable with all the standing and dancing on your special day!

To thread a needle, run the tip of your finger and thumb over a stick of lip balm, then roll the end of the thread between your fingers. It keeps the threads together and will go through the eye of the needle much easier. ST Send your tips to Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
