For The Week Of February 5th to February 11th. CAPRICORN December 22– January 19

CANCER June 22-July 22

AQUARIUS January 20-February 18

LEO July 23-August 22

PISCES February 19-March 20

VIRGO August 23-September 22

Oh boy, Capricorn. The winter blues set in, and it’s up to you to boost everyone’s spirits. An inexpensive activity outdoors might do just the trick.

Creativity abounds, and the pace picks up considerably. Enjoy, Aquarius. A lacy antique gift brings a touch of elegance to your home.

Times are changing, Pisces. Go with the flow. A last-ditch effort to restore harmony to your home works. Cook up something special to celebrate.

ARIES March 21– April 19

Fess up, Aries. All of the sneaking around has raised suspicions, and if you don’t let the cat out of the bag, the surprise is going to be on you.

TAURUS April 20-May 20

Surely, Taurus, you can help. When a cause comes calling, don’t miss out! Amazing things are in store. A deadline is extended to make way for a new arrival.

GEMINI May 21-June 21

Revenue increases, and budget woes come to an end. Yahoo, Gemini! Look to a mentor for guidance to put the surplus to good use. A furry friend alleviates loneliness.

Will you, or won’t you? Time will tell this week, Cancer. No news from home is good news. Leave things be. A test in patience turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

Watch it, Leo. Careful deliberation is required. The slightest of miscalculations could land you in a world of trouble. A charity could use a donation.

Shh, Virgo. Make sure you keep what you are about to discover under wraps. Travel plans begin to take shape with the help of someone you least expect.

LIBRA September 23-October 22

Prep work is key to completing a home improvement project right. Don’t dismiss it, Libra. A special date draws near. Look to a friend for direction.

SCORPIO October 23-November 21

Misunderstood you may feel, but misunderstood you are not. Your friends know you. Give them the benefit of the doubt, Scorpio. Chores stack up.

SAGITTARIUS November 22-December 21

Your vast knowledge is impressive, but don’t overdo it, Sagittarius. Use what you know, and you’ll gain friends. Flaunt it, and you’ll risk alienation.

A u t o Service Service Auto Directory Directory

Give Your Car The Brakes It Deserves

(NAPS)- Before you try to stop your car again, you may want to start thinking about your brakes. Consider the strength and power it takes to bring a 4,000pound or heavier vehicle from 60 mph to a quick, safe stop. Many drivers take their brakes for granted until they squeal, grind or, worse, stop working altogether. Before that happens, you can get your brakes checked at a qualified, licensed service center. Driving with worn brakes is dangerous for you, your passengers, fellow motorists and pedestrians. Regular brake inspections also help prevent expensive damage and avert potential safety issues. Most cars today are equipped with disc brakes. When you put your foot on the brake pedal, fluid triggers a piston in a caliper to press the brake pad against a rotor on the wheel. The friction of the pad against the rotor stops the hub and wheel – and, therefore, the vehicle. The friction from braking also generates intense heat and brake dust as the pads begin to wear. When pads get too thin, not only can braking ability be compromised, but the heat can damage the rotors and lead to even costlier repairs. Quality brake pads have a built-in wear indicator that makes a high-pitched noise when the pads are worn. It’s your warning to get your brakes checked as soon as possible. Other signs that you may need brake service: • Your stopping distance is increasing, causing a longer braking distance • You have to push the brake pedal unusually far to engage the brakes • Your vehicle has a tendency to move right or left when the brakes are applied • The steering wheel shakes in your hands as you come to a stop. (This could mean your rotors are damaged, or “warped,” and need attention.) When your brakes or rotors need replacing, use quality, tested products designed for your vehicle. Premium ACDelco Professional DuraStop brake pads, for example, are covered by a limited lifetime warranty and made for most vehicles on the road today and a variety of needs and budgets. Extend brake life by: • Getting regular brake maintenance • Not riding your brakes • Not slamming on your brakes • Removing brake dust and mud from your wheels with regular car washes • Making sure brake fluid is at the proper level. It’s a good idea to have your auto repair facility check your brakes every time you change your oil or according to the schedule in your owner’s manual. To find a nearby service center, visit www.acdelco.com and click on “Find a Service Center.” If you take good care of your brakes, they’ll take care of you.

Here's a look at a few of the things you may choose to do to show you care about the world around you:

• Participate: The next time a nearby school, church or fraternal organization is having a bake sale, fundraiser or fair, join in the fun and provide some funds.

• Volunteer: Whether you’re the sociable sort who'd love to serve in a soup kitchen or cheer up the elderly in a nursing home, a professional prepared to mentor at-risk youth or the bookish type who’d be happy recording textbooks for blind students, there are all sorts of opportunities out there for giving of your time and expertise. There are even organizations such as www.volunteermatch.org that will find nearby places where you may care to volunteer. • Donate: You can send money to a cause you care about –– but you

• Nominate: A variety of groups ask the general public for the names and good deeds of people to be honored.

Rather than being replaced by “instant” media, your local free community paper has become an important part of our neighborhood. The reason, which sometimes is not heard because of all the noise about the Internet, is pretty obvious: Consumer News does what the Internet doesn’t. We promote connections at a local level. Consumer News joins readers and advertisers in ways digital media doesn’t.

I 4F3 E:C6D

In fact, the local content and power of Consumer News makes advertising even more effective. We are one of the number one mediums for driving purchases. That’s important in every product category.

HELOISEʼS KITCHENEERING BY HELOISE

Keeping It Crisp Dear Heloise: I live by myself and need to save as much food as possible. I clean a WHOLE STALK OF CELERY, then cut it in lengths to fit in a large jar. I put cold water over it, put the lid on and put it in the refrigerator. It keeps for a long time and stays crisp. -- L.H. in Mississippi This is one way to store celery. I do something similar so I can just grab a stalk and munch away! However, you really need to put only about an inch or so of water in the jar, as the stalks will soak that up and stay crisp and crunchy! -- Heloise SAFE FOOD Dear Heloise: Recently, a friend made an expensive seafood gumbo with $150 worth of fresh seafood. She called me when she opened the refrigerator and said that, upon lifting the pot’s lid, it was bubbling. Restaurants cool down large quantities with large ice wands. My hint for at home is that you freeze a 1- to 2liter soda bottle (plastic). You can place it in the pot when you pull it from the stove, and it will start to cool down. -- Miriam J., via email Oh dear! What a waste of some yummy (NOT cheap to make, either) gumbo! This is a good lesson for all of us. After cooking large quantities of something, try putting it into smaller containers before placing in the refrigerator. However, cooling down soup using your hint certainly would help prevent the bubbling over that your friend experienced.

Another method for cooling soups in large pots is to submerge the pot in a sink or tub filled with ice water. Soups are a great meal to cook ahead and freeze for later, which is why I wrote my Heloise’s Spectacular Soups pamphlet. To receive one, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Soups, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Freeze soup in smaller quantities (one serving, two servings or four servings) for unexpected guests or for a quick meal. -- Heloise FROZEN POPS Dear Heloise: I love your column in the Lubbock (Texas) AvalancheJournal and clip a lot of them. Pudding snacks were on sale, so I bought a lot. I cut a slit in the foil, insert a wooden craft stick and freeze. I cover it with foil so the stick will stand up. Kids love them. -- Barbara C. in Texas TINY FUNNEL Dear Heloise: Recently, I couldn’t find my small funnel to refill my salt and pepper shakers. I grabbed a round icing tip from my cake decorating set and used it. It worked well, as there were no spills! -- Lisa Z. in Texas CRACK OPEN Dear Heloise: I have difficulty opening packages, bottles and jars. I solved the problem of opening small, screw-top bottles by using a nutcracker that has been in the family for years. Works like a charm! -- Virginia E. in California (c)2013 by King Features Syndicate Inc.
