Spring Means Animals On The Road Each year, there are more than a million auto accidents involving animals, accounting for an estimated 10,000 injuries and 150 deaths each year. The average amount of property damage caused by animal collisions is $2,500 per accident. Where you live determines which animals you might encounter. Animals like deer, moose, elk, horse and cows often wander onto highways or roads. The most important thing a driver can do to stay safe is

to be alert. Reducing your speed is key to avoiding an animal-related accident. The more time you have to react, the better chance you will have of avoiding an accident. In areas animals are known to habitat, get into the habit of scanning the roadway. Use your high beams whenever possible. This will help you see the animals’ eyes reflected in the light.

Kid-Tough Baseboards Q: For a recent do-it-yourself project, I replaced the baseboard along two walls of the kids’ playroom with a length of two-by-four wood. The kids tend to ram their toys into the base of the wall and this dented and marred the original baseboard By Samantha Mazzotta and even damaged the drywall behind it. 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. Next, at my home-improvement store, I had two pieces of 2-by-4 cut to the length of each wall’s base. I left a quarter-inch off each end because I decided to leave the baseboard in place on the other walls. There was one error here: I had to re-cut one piece of wood because I forgot the two pieces would intersect at one corner. But it was not too difficult to saw off a couple of inches from one end. 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 to hide them from the kids. 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 (available at any paint store) with an eggshell finish that is easier to wipe 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. HOME TIP: Rub beeswax or bar soap onto the threads of a wood screw, and it will be easier to screw into solid wood boards or studs. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Keep in mind that many species of animals travel in groups. When you see one deer bounding across the road, chances are there will be several more following. Be extra cautious when driving near farms, wooded areas, open fields and water. Many times you will see signs advising you of the animals known to cross the road in that area. Take these signs seriously. Make yourself known. Use your horn to warn the animal of your presence. Honking your horn is the most effective way to get the animal’s attention. If are in a situ-

ation where an accident with an animal is inevitable, don’t swerve. Swerving to avoid an animal can cause more damage and injury than hitting the animal. Apply the brakes hard, honk your horn and try to maintain control of your vehicle. If there are vehicles behind you, pump your brakes and sound your horn. As with anytime you get into a vehicle, be sure to use your seatbelt. If you do have a collision with an animal, stay in your vehicle, as getting out increases your chances of being hit by another vehicle. Report the incident to the police immediately. Animals don’t get issued driver’s licenses, but they do share the road with you. Drive defensively, stay alert and be safe.

Vietnam War Scrip

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, and now find I have gathered more than 300 pieces. About a third of my collection is "Carnival Glass" from the 1920s and '30s, which I found at local estate sales and flea markets. Since I am thinking of downsizing, I wonder what would be the best way to liquidate my collection for the best price. -- Kathryn, Spring Branch, Texas 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. Most dealers are helpful and can advise you. 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. Although it takes time and effort to photo, post and process items on eBay, it should allow you to get the maximum amount for your Fenton pieces. I monitored eBay for several days, and the activity for Fenton appears to be brisk. ••• Q: I have my first-grade reader from the 1940s, "Fun with Dick and Jane." I wonder if it has value. -- Barbara, Ramona, Calif. 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. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
