Coloring Book Q: I have a Donald Duck coloring book with boxed watercolors and crayons that originally belonged to my dad. It was never used. It was manufactured by Whitman in 1937. I almost put it out in a garage sale, but thought I would get your opinion first. My husband thinks it might be worth as much as $50. — Susan, Covington County, Miss. A: I found your coloring book and accessories in the Official Price Guide to Disney Collectibles by Ted Hake (House of Collectibles, $29.95). Hake, who buys and sells memorabilia through his auction house, be-

Your Money or Your Wife: Wives May Suffer When Husbands Refuse to Buy Long Term Care Insurance It’s a common scenario: a couple meets with their financial advisor, who recommends they consider the purchase of long term care insurance. Many times, the husband refuses to consider the purchase, saying that either family history indicates care won’t be needed, or that it’s “too expensive,” or “we’ll take care of each other.” He may be in denial of the possible frailty that may accompany old age. Or he may be simply unaware of the possible consequences when long term care planning is avoided. What’s the frequent result for our hypothetical couple? When the husband (who is usually older) needs long term care, his wife becomes the roundthe-clock caregiver. There are no insurance funds at the ready to alleviate her burden. So, husbands often receive their long term care for free - in theory. The true cost is borne by their wives, who may become ill when faced with the Herculean task of caregiving. Looking to their own future, these women are likely to be widows when they need long term care, which is why the vast majority of long term residents in nursing homes are female.1 They simply didn’t have the “built in caregiver” their husband did. Many people are aware of the phenomena in which a spouse dies within the first year of becoming widowed; it’s often referred to as “dying

How can I find out how much these are worth? — Irene, Coventry, R.I. A: There are several excellent comic-book price guides. My favorite is The Comic Book Checklist & Price Guide, compiled by Maggie Thompson, Brent Frankenhoff and Peter Bickford. This massive book references 125,000 comics and is updated periodically so that prices listed accurately reof a broken heart.” But less obvious to society has been the similar impact of spouses who need long term care. A Harvard study reported that an elderly person’s risk of dying rises when a spouse is hospitalized, especially if the spouse has a debilitating disease such as Alzheimer’s or other dementia, or chronic heart and pulmonary diseases. The stress involved with such a hospitalization raises the risk of the well spouse dying by up to 30%.2 Dr. Nicholas Christakis of Harvard Medical School comments, “There can be illnesses in your spouse that can be worse for your health than the death of your spouse.3” Just as we plan for bigger retirement nest eggs to cover increased lifespans, we must also plan for the long term care that is often needed as we potentially face decades of chronic illness. Just as purchasing life insurance at the birth of a child demonstrates love of a spouse, the purchase of long term care insurance continues a legacy of financially taking care of a spouse for better or worse. 1 US Census, National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS), conducted 1999, www.census.gov/prod/1/pop/p23-190/p23190-d.pdf 2 The New England Journal of Medicine, Mortality after the Hospitalization of a Spouse, published February 16, 2006 3 “When one spouse ails, health risks rise for both” The Boston Globe, March 12, 2006 40445, 05/10/06

GONE FISHING (continued): • King salmon, or Chinook salmon, are the largest of the Alaska salmon, typically 25-50 lbs. (11.3-22.7 kg). The world-record King salmon was caught on the Kenai River, in Alaska. It weighed 97 lbs. 4 oz (44.1 kg). • Man’s interest in the yellowfin tuna is an ancient one. Research on the tuna’s migration, feeding and spawning practices began in the sixth century B.C. by Greek fishermen who prized their delicate flesh. • The oldest known painting of a fisherman using a rod is from Egypt and dated at about 2000 B.C. Claudius Aelian (170-235 AD), a Roman author and teacher, mentions trout fishing with artificial flies with hooks in Macedonia. Fly-fishing has been around for more than 2,000 years. There is even evi-dence of the use of flies tied on bone hooks as early as 1400 B.C. in Egypt. • Shark fishermen beware: Sharks attack about 50 to 75 people each year worldwide, with perhaps 8 to 12 fatalities, according to data compiled in the International Shark Attack File. Although shark attacks get a lot of attention, this is far less than the number of people killed each year by elephants, bees, crocodiles, lightning or many other natural dangers. • Ice fishing is one of the only sectors of fishing that continues to grow rapidly, at a pace of 10 to 15 percent a year. • More than 90 percent of the rainbow trout sold in the United States is farm raised. • The largest brown trout weighed over 40 pounds (18.1 kg) and was caught in Arkansas on May 9, 1992.

GONE FISHING (continued): • The blue whale is the largest animal on our planet (exceeding the size of the greatest known dinosaurs) and has a heart the size of a Volkswagen. But it is not a fish; it’s a mammal. • The oarfish is the longest bony fish in the world. It has a snake-like body sporting a magnificent red fin along its length, a horselike face and blue gills, and accounts for many sea-serpent sightings. • A buck tail jig is a very simple lure that resembles a small minnow. They are often carried in survival packs, similar to the ones pilots have with them, because they are so effective. As the name implies, they are jigs tied with the hair of a buck deer’s tail. • Famous fish? Benson the carp was found floating in Bluebell Lakes near Peterborough, England. Benson was famous as England’s biggest fish and had been caught at least 60 times. • The biggest saltwater fish ever documented for an International Game Fish Association (IGFA) world fishing record was caught in 1959 by Alfred Dean of Irymple, Victoria, Australia. The white shark he snagged off Ceduna, South Australia, weighed 2,664 lbs. (1,208 kg). It was an IGFA all-tackle record and a 130 lb. (59 kg) line class record. • Catfish are the only animals that naturally have an odd number of whiskers.

• It was Pulitzer Prize-winning American author John Steinbeck, best known for “The Grapes of Wrath” and “Of Mice and Men,” who made the following sage observation: “The writer must believe that what he is doing is the most important thing in the world. And he must hold to this illusion even when he knows it is not true.” • If you’re planning a summer trip to Maine, you won’t want to miss the stunning tourist attraction to be found on Peaks Island. There you’ll find an entire museum devoted to housing a rather extensive collection of umbrella covers. • In the United States, January is the least popular month for weddings. • If you’ve never heard of the quagga, don’t blame yourself. The creature, once found on the plains of Africa, has been extinct since 1883. An oddlooking creature, this subspecies of zebra was once thought to be halfzebra, half horse. Though the front part of its body had the zebra’s stripes, those stripes faded out midbody and the rest of the equine looked remarkably like a common horse. • It’s been claimed that 19th-century English naturalist Charles Darwin devoted eight years to studying the lowly barnacle. • We all know that the day after Thanksgiving is commonly known as Black Friday, thanks to all the crowds seeking out deals on Christmas gifts, but have you ever wondered how it got that name? It seems that the moniker originated back in 1965 when the Philadelphia police department came up with the name after having to deal with the traffic jams and shopping crowds. © 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

A Permanent Reminder Of The Cherished Day

Old Sanctuary

By Tresa Erickson

Your wedding day is just months away, and the time has come for you to select a photographer. You have spoken to several in the past weeks, and they all want to know what style of photography you are most interested in. You’re not up on the current trends in wedding photography and could use a brief review.

In spite of the popularity of photojournalism, portrait wedding photography is not going away any time soon. The majority of couples still want the standard posed portraits. These days, however, many are choosing to have their wedding portraits taken with a high-end fashion approach. A throwback to fashion magazine shoots, invogue wedding photography maximizes the glamour of the moment and makes the couple look their best, almost like celebrities, through digital image editing and manipulation. Shots are very artistic and the editing is very skilled.

There are two basic approaches to wedding photography: portrait and photojournalistic. In the former, subjects pose for the pictures; in the latter, they don’t; the shots are more candid. Many brides and grooms opt for a combination of the two, often hiring a photographer familiar with both styles or sepa- When it comes to the style of your wedding photos, it is your choice.

• “To keep deer from eating plants, slip remnants of bar soap into pieces of pantyhose and hang on plants. The deer can’t stand the smell.” — M.R. in California • Here’s a great, decorative way to absorb excess odor in damp spaces (like bathrooms or basements). Wrap a plastic container with pretty shelf paper and add charcoal briquettes or kitty litter to the box. Place a lid on top with holes poked in it. It will absorb the moisture. Check it periodically and replace the contents. • “To get rid of the smell of burned food in the microwave, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to 4 cups of water in a microwave-safe glass bowl. I use a measuring cup. Microwave on high until boiling, about four minutes. Let it set in the microwave for a few minutes and then remove carefully. You also can boil the mixture on the stove, and it will make the room smell fresh.” — R.F. in Indiana © 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

TIDBITS RIDE GUIDE Kasey Kahne to Detour on Way to Hendrick FORT WORTH, Texas — Kasey Kahne is headed to Hendrick Motorsports, but it’s kind of complicated. Kahne, 30, has already driven for three teams in the Sprint Cup Series — without ever moving. He began with Evernham Motorsports, which became Gillett Evernham, which became Richard Petty Motorsports. All along, Kahne drove No. 9, but he started in a Dodge and this year changed to a Ford. Considered one of the sport’s more talented drivers, it’s no surprise that Kahne is moving to Hendrick Motorsports once his contract at RPM expires at the end of the season, but he’s not moving there directly, or at least, that’s the current spin. Next year Kahne will drive for a team not yet announced — Stewart Haas Racing, a Hendrick satellite of sorts, is most often mentioned — while Mark Martin completes his contractual commitment at Hendrick. Kahne will not actually join Hendrick proper until 2012. Or so it is currently assumed. Kahne is willing to wait a year, apparently, in order to join the team that produced the top three finishers — Jimmie Johnson, Martin and

Jeff Gordon — in last year’s Chase. “To be in the position I’m in now and know where I’m going to be in 2012, to have the opportunity with Rick Hendrick and everybody at Hendrick Motorsports, to me, it’s an unbelievable opportunity. I can’t wait to get that started.” Beyond the announcement of Kahne joining Hendrick in 2012, little is known. Martin has declared he isn’t retiring. Tony Stewart has said he has made no arrangements to have Kahne join him and Ryan Newman, and other scenarios (JR Motorsports, also Hendrick aligned, moving up from Nationwide to Cup being one) are similarly denied or, at least, played down. No one knows whether or not Kahne will take his crew chief, Kenny Francis, along with him — wherever that is. “I’ll work through it with Mr. Hendrick and figure out exactly what we need to do that makes the most sense,” said Kahne. ••• Monte Dutton has covered motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette since 1993. He was named writer of the year by the National Motorsports Press Association in 2008.
