• Don’t approach a dog you don’t know.

Tips On Keeping Children Safer Around Dogs (NAPS)—Those who don’t believe dog bites pose a serious problem in the U.S. are barking up the wrong tree. Consider the following:

how to act around dogs, how to play with dogs, when to leave dogs alone and how to properly meet a dog are much less likely to be bitten.

• An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year.

What can parents do? To help parents supervise their children when around dogs, here are some safe rules of behavior for kids, suggested by the Accident Attorneys Organization:

• Nearly 800,000 of those bites require medical care. • The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog-bite claims each year. Fortunately, there are steps that parents can take to reduce the risk of problems when children and dogs interact. The first is to educate their children and supervise them when they are around dogs. Studies have found that the No. 1 dog-bite prevention measure is education. Children who understand

• Never approach a dog that is tied up, behind a fence or in a car. Always make slow movements, set things down carefully and don’t run when you’re around dogs, as this gets them excited and they may accidently hurt you. What can dog owners do? Here are some tips for dog owners that can help to reduce the risk of problems:

• Don’t treat a dog unkindly.

• Supervise your dog. Dogs left on their own may feel uncertain and defensive, or even overly confident, and this poses risks to your dog, as well as to other people and dogs.

• Never hit, kick, slap or bite a dog or pull on his ears, tail or paws. • Don’t bother a dog when she is busy. • Never bother dogs with puppies or dogs that are playing with or guarding toys, eating or sleeping. Always leave service dogs alone while they are working.

Auto A u t o Service Service Directory Directory Ten Tips For Vehicle Maintenance (NAPS)- To keep you car on the road to safety and savings, now is a good time to make sure that it’s in the best condition. “Now is the time for motorists to ensure that their vehicles are in shape,” said Jim Sassorossi, head of Product Development at Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “The safety, performance and life of a vehicle hinge on preventive maintenance.” Here are hints on how: • Check Brakes - Brakes are on of the most used (and often abused) components on a car. A thin layer of the brake pad disintegrates every time the brakes are applied. Replace pads or shoes before drums or rotors become damaged. Check pads, shoes, drums, rotors, calipers, fittings, brake hardware and the parking brake to prevent problems. • Check Tires - Check air pressure on all tires, including spare. Improper tire pressure leads to premature wear and a decrease in fuel mileage. The entire surface of the tire, both tread and sidewalk, should be inspected for uneven or irregular wear. • Check Lights - Inspect and test all exterior lamps and lights, including turn signals and hazard lights, to ensure that they are in proper working order and alignment. • Check Air Filter - The air filter is one of the unsung heroes of a vehicle, as it protects the engine from airborne contaminants. Replacing a dirty air filter helps ensure proper performance and longer life. • Check Oil - Oil is the lifeblood of the engine. Engine oil level should be changed and replenished regularly. • Check All Fluid Levels - Dirty or low fluids may affect the performance of a vehicle and can lead to breakdowns if not properly monitored and filled. • Check Engine Belts, Hoses and Fuel Filter - Prevent breakdowns or serious engine damage and maximize fuel economy. • Check Battery - Look for corroded terminals and inspect for a bulging or cracked case. • Check Shocks and Struts - They’re vital for a smooth ride and optimal handling and may affect other vehicle parts. • Check Wiper Blades - Properly functioning wiper blades increase visibility, To alert you when it’s time for a change, Mopar all-season wiper blades feature an innovative wear indicator that gradually turns from black to green to yellow as the blades wear. Mopar is a contraction of MOtor and PARts. While it’s Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand, ann alliance with Magneti Marelli enables Chrysler Group dealerships to service vehicles for GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai and Kia.

Freshen Up Your House With Color (NAPSI)––A fast, fun and inexpensive way to give your home and your mood a lift is to freshen up your space in clever colors. “Today’s decorating trends point to softer, lighter colors that reflect an optimistic and free-spirited approach to decorating,” says color expert Jackie Jordan. “Updated pastels and romantic colors bring a spirited vibe to a variety of home design themes, from coastal to contemporary to vintage or cottage chic.” Here are some decorating tips for sprucing up your home with color: • Rethink room colors. Blues and violets are often used in bedrooms but they can also bring an unexpected twist to a kitchen, dining room or sunroom. Even one wall painted in a new color can create an accent that redefines the space.

• Create colorful contrast. A living room painted in a floral color such as pastel yellow works beautifully in contrast with furnishings in deep neutral colors such as dark peppercorn gray.

Potholes Pack A Powerful Punch help, you can turn to the Softer Side color collection by HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams. It features 20 designer-inspired paint colors that are carefully coordinated to take the guesswork out of color selection in any one room, room to room or exterior. • Have fun with patterns. Many paint colors are also specially designed to coordinate with wallpapers. Patterns with yellow leaves, green polka dots or large floral prints can add energy or a touch of whimsy to a room.

• Think beyond walls. Paint can be added almost anywhere, even on unexpected surfaces. A vintage bedroom dresser painted a pale pastel blue or pink can bring a cottage-themed room to life. A bookcase in fresh green or pale aqua can bring outdoor colors into a porch or den. • Ensure color harmony. To

• Think colorfully indoors and out. A carefully selected splash of color can also uplift the exterior of your home. Painting your homeís front door or shutters in a fresh new hue can create a cheerful and inviting look.

(NAPSI)––Hitting a pothole can be more than a momentary jolt. While the tires and wheels should be visually inspected as soon as possible, you should know there could be damage to the steering, suspension and alignment systems that you canít see. To help determine if hitting a pothole has damaged your vehicle, watch for these warning signs: • Loss of control, swaying when making routine turns, bottoming out on city streets or bouncing excessively on rough roads. These indicate that key safety-related systems–the steering and suspension–may have been damaged. They largely determine your carís ride and handling. Key components are shocks and struts, the steering knuckle, ball joints, the steering rack or box, bearings, seals and hub units, and tie rod ends.

suspect that there may be damage to the tires, wheels, steering and suspension, or wheel alignment,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council, “it’s worth having a professional technician check out the car and make any necessary repairs.”

• Pulling in one direction, instead of maintaining a straight path, and uneven tire wear. These mean an alignment problem. Proper wheel alignment is important for safe handling and long-lasting tires. • Low tire pressure, bulges or blisters on the sidewalls, or dents in the rim. These problems should be checked out as soon as possible as tires are the critical connection between your car and the road.

As a general rule of thumb, he advises, steering and suspension systems should be checked at least once a year and wheels should be aligned at the same interval. Motorists who drive in areas where potholes are common should be prepared to have these systems checked more frequently. The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.

Tips and Tools For Your Spring Cleanup (NAPSI)–Thereís good news for homeowners preparing for their first yard work of the season. Investing a little time and effort in selecting the right tools and techniques when it comes to your spring yard cleanup can make the process quicker, easier and greener. For starters, homeowners should be aware that advances in battery technology are making it possible for the performance of cordless tools to match that of their gas-powered counterparts. Thanks to a new wave of battery-powered tools, such as the OREGON40V MAX* Cordless Tool System, homeowners no longer have to sacrifice power for convenience. And because these tools produce zero emissions, batterypowered tools boast a huge environmental benefit over gaspowered tools. To help make your cleanup

easier–and greener–the experts at OREGON offer these tips: • Choose the right tools. For instance, battery-powered tools start instantly, making it easy to tackle any yard task as soon as spring is here. With battery-powered tools, youíll be ready with a simple charge of the battery. • Clean up the yard. Remove leaves and winter debris from lawn and shrub planting areas before new growth starts. Inspect trees and shrubs for winter damage, then use a chain saw or pole saw to trim damaged limbs back to the nearest healthy bud. Lightweight, cordless chain saws and pole saws can be excellent tools for this kind of task. Theyíre also handy to have on hand for cleanup after spring storms. • Prune trees and shrubs at the right time for maximum leaf growth. Most

shrubs and ground covers are best pruned in early spring, before they start to grow. A pole saw, such as OREGON’s new PS250, makes it easy to trim out-of-reach branches without the use of a ladder. • Keep grass trimmed to ward off weeds and summer drought. Cut lawns low and re-establish edges along shrub beds, walks and driveways in early spring. Allow your lawn to grow taller as it enters late spring or summer to improve drought stress. The convenience offered by batterypowered trimmers can help make it easier for homeowners to achieve a well-trimmed lawn. • Be a better neighbor. Compared to their gas-powered counterparts, cordless tools are low noise and quiet between cuts. And no gas means no pol-

HELOISEʼS KITCHENEERING BY HELOISE

Does This Cheese Break the Mold? Dear Heloise: Most cheese, even when stored in the refrigerator, will begin to MOLD after a while. However, the Parmesan cheese in the shaker-type container, no matter how long it is kept, seems never to develop mold. Does it ever develop mold and it just can’t be seen, or does it simply not mold? How long should one keep this cheese for safe consumption? This would seem to be an important question for us all. -Ray M., via email Well, Ray, here’s what I found, after calling the manufacturer. The cheese will show mold eventually, even if kept under the best refrigerated conditions. So, make sure to consume the cheese prior to or within three months after the “Best When Purchased By” date that is stamped on the bottom of the container. -- Heloise P.S.: I write the date that I open the container on the bottom in black marker. This way, I know when several months have passed and I need to purchase new cheese. SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at)Heloise.com SHOPPING HINT Dear Heloise: I save my grocerystore receipt until the next time I go shopping. I use a magnet to stick it on the side of my refrigerator. This is handy, because I can look at the receipt to see what foods I bought as a reminder that I need to use things before they go bad. Also, if I come

across a bad product, I have the receipt, so I can take it back and get a refund. -Linda C. in Washington DRYING SPONGES Dear Heloise: I’ve tried the various “sponge dishes,” etc., that are commercially available and have yet to find one that doesn’t collect soap scum or leave my sponge smelling of mildew. To solve the dilemma, I cut vertically into the open end of a plastic, net vegetable bag (potatoes and Brussels sprouts, for example, come in these). I make the cut long enough that I can tie a knot with the two sides and still have a 4-inch opening. I have a heavyweight soap dispenser sitting on the edge of my sink. I tie the net bag around the neck of the soap dispenser so that it hangs into the sink without touching it. I slip my sponge into the open slit of the bag, and it hangs in the sink. The sponge dries quickly after each use. -- Margaret B., via email BATTER UP Dear Heloise: When I am making cupcakes or muffins, I use a measuring cup to put the batter in the cupcake/ muffin tin. No more mess! -- Betty H. in Ohio CHILL OUT Dear Heloise: My daughter loves different juices, but hates that they water down so easily over ice. She began freezing grapes and using them in place of ice cubes. She’s tried a few different types of fruit, but grapes certainly work best. Her idea gave me one: using frozen grapes to chill wine! It’s worked great! -- Shelby T. in Oregon (c)2013 by King Features Syndicate Inc.
