This year stake a graduation party photo walk By Donna Erickson One of my vivid childhood memories is of riding in the backseat of our Ford station wagon on a trip through the scorching deserts of the Southwest in the summer with no air conditioning and two restless brothers kicking each other and me. We often were rescued from boredom by a series of Burma-Shave signposts. Printed on giant stakes spaced about a mile apart, silly rhymes grabbed our attention and gave us a chuckle, prompting us to make up our own verses. With a nod to that clever marketing idea, I created our own version of these posts, using photos for my kids' highschool graduation parties. Along the walkway that led guests from our front yard to the festivities in the back was a progressive visual history of their lives from tot to teen. Step 1: Sort through family photos of your graduate, and choose about 12 favorites that make you smile. We pulled out photo albums, loose pictures stuffed in drawers and my wallet, and identified favorites in our photo collection. Sort and identify your favorites from the different stages of your child's life. Step 2: Scan and print enlarged 8-1/2-by-11inch versions of the photos on your computer or have them enlarged and copied in color at a copy store. For displaying 12 photos, purchase six large sheets of poster board in bright colors at a discount or artsupply store and 12 dowels or garden stakes at your hardware store. Cut poster board in half widthwise. Step 3: Attach photos to the poster board with spray adhesive outdoors, following the directions on the can. For added pizzazz, you might wish to glue on construction paper cut in geometric shapes for decoration. Attach the dowels with strong tape to the back of each photo poster. Set in the ground or in planter boxes along the path to your party. Tip: Don't rush through the photo finding and sorting step. Although time-consuming, it was the most meaningful experience of the party planning. As a mom of three, I found pleasure in focusing on just one of the kids for a concentrated period of time, chronicling that life with visual and sentimental memories.

Safety first with watercraft Personal watercraft run the gamut and make for great fun on the water. They can be dangerous, however, if not cared for and used appropriately. Here are some basic safety tips to ensure a safe time. Check all craft: There is nothing riskier than getting into the water with a faulty watercraft. You do not want to get stranded. Check your watercraft before you leave shore and make any repairs necessary to ensure smooth operation. Have the proper safety devices: Ordinances should be in place regarding the safety equipment you should have onboard your personal watercraft. Make sure you have everything required and it is in good condition. Wear a lifejacket: It doesn't matter how great of a swimmer you are, accidents happen. You could stumble, hit your head and fall overboard. Be prepared for such emergencies by wearing a lifejacket. Not any old lifejacket will do. Wear one approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, and before heading out, make sure it is in good condition and fits you properly. Choose the right operator: If you do not intend to operate the personal watercraft, choose someone who can. You need someone familiar with the machine and old enough to legally operate it. Don't fudge on the age requirements. They are in place to ensure your safety. Use the engine stop lanyard: Attach it to your wrist or lifejacket and keep it there. If your watercraft does not have an engine stop lanyard, familiarize yourself with the proper reboarding procedures. Be on the alert: Operators as well as riders should always be on the alert for swimmers, crafts and other obstacles in the water. Check all around you when on the personal watercraft and avoid getting too close to anything. Operate the craft with care, be careful of the wake you create and do not speed. Never drink and drive: Drinking and driving do not mix, on land or on water. Leave the alcohol on shore, even if you do not intend to operate the personal watercraft. One too many drinks could cause an accidental stumble into the water and impede recovery efforts. With watercraft comes a sense of responsibility. Hold up your end, and if you have purchased a personal watercraft or are planning to operate one for the first time, check around and see if any training courses are offered. If so, take one. The more knowledgeable

June 2011

and prepared you are, the more likely you are to have a good time.

Follow pool rules Spending the day at the pool can be great fun for the whole family. Teens can show off their diving skills in the deep end, while younger children play games in the shallow end and tots splash around in the kiddie pool as their parents look on. With swimming pools comes an element of risk and the proper precautions must be taken to ensure a safe experience for one and all. Whether you go to a public pool or have one of your own, you need to make safety a priority. Adult supervision is essential, especially with children that cannot swim. Never leave children alone in the pool for a second, even if they're wearing a lifejacket or a lifeguard is on duty. Nothing is foolproof, especially air-filled swimming aids. Never depend upon rafts and other floating devices to keep children afloat. Use lifejackets and supervise children always. Nothing can replace the ability to swim, not even a lifejacket. If you children don't know how to swim already, teach them or enroll them in a swimming class. It is best not to purchase a pool until your children are old enough to learn how to swim and follow your instructions. This, however, is not always possible. Should you own a pool, you will need to take some measures to ensure no child gets into it unsupervised. A high fence with a self-closing gate and latch high out of young hands' reach is a must. Alarms on the gate will let you know when someone has entered the area. A safety cover on the pool will keep individuals from accidentally falling into the pool. You will also need to set up some safety rules for your pool. Post them for all to see and take the time to enforce them. Public pools generally have safety rules in place. Take the time to go over them with your children and discuss with them why it is not a good idea to run around the pool, dive into the shallow end and so forth. Even with the proper precautions, accidents can happen. Be prepared by knowing first aid and CPR as well as how to use the safety equipment provided. If you own a pool, make sure you have the proper equipment in place and it is in good condition.

Household dangers We all depend upon the use of chemicals, whether it's to keep our homes and vehicles clean or keep pests out of them. Every household has its fair share of chemicals for a wide array of tasks, and while the risk for an incident may be low, that doesn't mean we shouldn't be prepared for one. The best course of action is prevention. To reduce the chance of an incident, follow these tips: •Buy only the chemicals necessary. Determine how much paint you need before you go to the store, and if a quart will do, don't buy a gallon so you'll have some later for touchups. You can always buy more and it will work better fresh. •Store chemicals properly. Keep them in their original containers with labels intact and place them in a locked cabinet out of the sight and reach of youngsters. If you have to change containers, make sure you label it. •Use chemicals as recommended. Follow the manufacturer's labels and never mix chemicals. A dangerous reaction could occur. Don't smoke or use chemicals around open flames. The vapors could catch fire or explode. •Clean up spills immediately. Wearing gloves and eye protection, sop up the spill with some clean rags. Set the rags outside for the fumes to evaporate, wrap them in newspaper and seal them in a plastic bag. Then dispose of them properly at a hazardous waste facility. •Dispose of chemicals properly, either with a hazardous waste facility or with an organization in need. Theater groups, for example, will often take used paint, while nurseries may take used fertilizers and other lawn and garden chemicals. Check around and see if anyone could use your leftover chemicals. Even with the best of precautions, incidents can occur. In the case of one, get out of the affected area as soon as possible and contact local authorities for assistance. Do not attempt to clean up the mess yourself. You could breathe in heavy fumes and suffer dire consequences. If ingestion has taken place, call for medical attention immediately and follow the instructions given carefully, making sure you have the product nearby for reference. Signs of ingestion include difficulty in breathing, changes in skin color, blurry vision, headache, dizziness, clumsiness, diarrhea and cramps, and irritation of eyes, skin and throat. No one likes to think about a household chemical incident, but it can happen. Be prepared. Post the numbers of the poison control center and local hospitals next to your phone and learn how to react in an emergency. Quick thinking could make a world of difference and lead to a positive outcome.

Hobbies for arthritis sufferers Individuals with arthritis are often stuck between a rock and a hard place. Doctors want people to exercise to keep up the range of motion in affected joints. However, even some limited movements can cause pain and suffering to those with arthritis. Furthermore, individuals with arthritis may shy away from the activities they once enjoyed because the pain is simply too overwhelming. Instead of simply sitting on the couch watching television, there are a number of different things arthritis sufferers can do to pass the time and reconnect with past hobbies and interests. It might just take a little re-outfitting of the tools that are needed to participate. Gardening: Gardening is a popular pastime for people of all ages. But the repetitive motions of digging and tilling as well as gripping a multitude of tools can take the joy out of the hobby. People with arthritis can make some changes. Raised garden beds or container gardening eliminates the stooping and bending associated with traditional gardening. With containers, individuals can place the containers on a counter or table and do all the work at a comfortable height. Choosing low-maintenance plants is another option. Plants that don't require as much pruning or repotting are good for those with arthritis. Also, look for tools with larger grips and handles to be easier on arthritic hands. Crafting: Many people with arthritis find the fine-detail work they grew accustomed to is not very comfortable with arthritis. Instead, there are many other crafts that can be practical. Ceramics are one craft where the activity can also be the exercise. Using a pottery wheel or hand-molding doughs and other modeling media can be a way to stretch and work the hands and fingers. Using paintbrushes equipped with wider grips can make painting possible. Mural painting is another option. Again, those with arthritis can choose tools with wide handles to make grasping easier. Large designs on walls or canvases will be easier to handle than smaller pieces. Cooking: Cooking and baking is an art form that can be enjoyed by anyone. Furthermore, with ergonomic spoons, ladles and other kitchen tools,

Container gardening is a hobby arthritis sufferers can enjoy. it has never been more convenient or less laborintensive to be an accomplished home chef. Baking and pastry creation is one area where people can show off creative skills. For those who love to bake but have trouble kneading and working dough, food processors, bread machines and kitchen stand mixers can take the work out of those processes. Cooking is not only a rewarding hobby but also an activity that can benefit the household. Having arthritis doesn't mean a person has to give up on the activities he or she enjoys. It merely involves a few tweaks that can still make these hobbies enjoyable.

Avoid investment traps When it comes to investing, many people approach their initial foray with a degree of trepidation. Much of that is due to the nature of investing, which involves a leap of faith even for the most conservative investments. The economic downturn that began near the end of the first decade of the 21st century has only added to the fears associated with investing. While investing is a risk, it's also a necessary step for men and women hoping to secure their financial futures. Whether an investment portfolio consists of just a 401(k) or an IRA, men and women who hope to retire need to find a way to balance their fear of investing with their desire to retire comfortably. Many of those fears can be countered by watching out for some of these common investment traps. •Environmental investments. The "go green" movement has opened the door for scores of investment traps that prey on an investor's desire to invest in ways that will improve their bottom line and the environment at the same time. Such traps are especially prevalent in the aftermath of environmental disasters like oil spills. Investors should be wary of e-mail or telemarketing campaigns that promise investors they have the products needed to fix disasters, whether it's an oil spill or a hurricane. Whenever investing in green technologies, investors should do extensive research before agreeing to invest. •"Hot tips." Nearly every investor has been offered a "hot tip" at one point or another. Novice and even veteran investors should be especially wary of such tips, which are often unfounded and could cost investors substantial amounts of money in the long run. •Special deals. Some private deals are legitimate, though investors, particularly beginners, must be especially wary of "special" investment deals that often prey on unsuspecting investors. Typically framed as a chance to get in on the ground floor and invest in a business that's trying to raise capital, these "special" deals are often fraudulent and investors could lose a lot of money. •Beware of online sales pitches. Social media has made it easier than ever before for con artists to victimize unsuspecting investors. This investment trap often boasts high-yield returns and might even suggest these returns are tax-free. Any investment that guarantees either of these things is too good to be true, and beginning investors should avoid them. •Gold scams. Though some investors embraced gold as an investment opportunity during the economic downturn, beginners should be wary of investment pitches that offer to buy gold for investors and then sell it once the value of gold has risen. The North American Securities Administrators Association warns that in many of these instances the gold does not exist. Investors who want to invest in gold should instead consider a gold fund.

Concussions, PTSD By Freddy Groves The first line of "Aftershock: The Ticking Time Bomb of Soldiers' Traumatic Brain Injuries" says: "At 8:20 p.m. on Sept. 21, 2010, Iraq veteran Brock Savelkoul decided it was time to die." The long article begins by describing a standoff with police while Savelkoul gripped a 9mm pistol and an untrained police officer tried to talk him down from a suicide wish. Savelkoul, a decorated veteran with three tours in Iraq under his belt, suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder -and he'd had enough. "Aftershock," by T. Christian Miller and Daniel Zwerdlin, should be required reading for a long list of people: doctors, nurses, family of returning veterans, active military in harm's way -- and veterans who have experienced difficulties adjusting to civilian life after suffering seemingly mild concussions from blasts. The question that remains for doctors is whether a mild traumatic brain injury (concussion) can lead to PTSD. The answer likely lies in how the injury came to be: a football field concussion in a familiar setting can be different from one in a frightening circumstance of war. As the article describes, severe traumatic brain injuries aren't as likely to lead to PTSD because the person is knocked unconscious, but as one researcher indicated, one concussion may cause lifelong problems. The article describes the long process that veterans go through trying to get help for their invisible wounds. Savelkoul and four others with him suffered mild traumatic brain injuries from a nearby explosion, although they were not initially diagnosed with concussion, likely because they weren't checked. Of the men, three are still in the military and serving overseas, one recovered but gets bad headaches, two have memory and concentration problems -- and Savelkoul entered a downward spiral that led to his standoff with police. To read the whole article, go online to www.alternet.org and put the title in the search box. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Strange, but true By Samantha Weaver It was 20th-century Belgian writer and philosopher Raoul Vaneigem who made the following sage observation: "There are more truths in 24 hours of a man's life than in all the philosophies." The next time you're annoyed by a bad case of the hiccups, consider poor Charles Osborne. In 1922, when he was 28 years old, Mr. Osborne got the hiccups. For the next 68 years, he continued to hiccup, finally stopping in 1990, one year before his death at the age of 97. Those who study such things claim that an average bank robber in the United States nets about $4,000 for every heist. No info at hand on how the researches acquired their data. If you're planning a trip to the United Kingdom in the near future, you might want to be sure Windsor Castle, located in the county of Berkshire, is on your itinerary. Built in the 11th century, it is both the longest-occupied palace in Europe and, with more than 500 people living and working there, the world's largest inhabited castle. As a bonus, through April of 2012 you'll be able to view a special exhibit on royal cakes. Yes, cakes. Amazingly, included in the exhibit are two pieces of cake from the wedding of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert, which took place on February 10, 1840. Stephen Spielberg, who has earned two Academy Awards for Best Director, and three of whose films have set boxoffice records, was rejected -- twice -when he applied to the film program of the University of Southern California.

Try these tips Use a mesh bag to hold flowers in place in a vase. Just roll or wad it up and put it down in the bottom of the vase. When you're done with the flowers, you can use a stick to swish the bag around and loosen any gunk inside the vase when cleaning. Launder the mesh or just toss it. When freezing leftovers, especially soup or stew, consider using zipper-closing bags. They can be filled and frozen flat, then stacked nicely. They take up much less room than standard containers.

Old home-canned pickles recipe may be unsafe By Angela Shelf Medearis When backyard gardens are overflowing with cucumbers, grandma's homecanned pickles are not far behind. But before you take the first bite of that crisp, tangy pickled cucumber, it might be wise to ask, "Is her recipe safe?" No offense to grandma, but it's probably not very safe. Many of the old family favorites use methods that have been deemed unsafe, said Sarah Janicek, who answers foodsafety questions for University of Missouri Extension's nutrition education programs. "People are still using really old recipes that are not reliable or safe," she said. For Janicek and other extension nutrition specialists, home canning questions are as much of a summer tradition as grandma's pickles. Answers to those questions focus first and foremost on ensuring that home canners know the current recommendations to prevent the possibility of food-borne illnesses and spoilage. Common mistakes include failing to heat pickles in a boiling-water bath, and under-processing tomatoes and other items produced using recipes based on trial and error rather than good food science. Though the U.S. Department of Agriculture -- the definitive source on home food preservation -- completely revamped canning recommendations in 1989, old methods still persist. "Sometimes they (home canners) don't realize the risk they take because up to this point they've managed to escape the most serious consequences, or have not understood why jars came unsealed or spoiled on the shelf," said Cynthia Fauser, an MU extension nutrition specialist.

For years, "cold packing" -- treating vegetable-packed jars in a hot-water bath -- was the favored method for green beans and tomatoes, vegetables still popular among home canners. The technique was based on pre-World War II science when microbiology was still in its infancy, she said. Food scientists now know that waterbath canning is not safe for low-acid foods, which includes vegetables, meats and vegetable-meat combinations, Fauser said. "CI Botulinum goes active when it's canned," she said. "It particularly likes low-acid, air-free environments, as in canning jars with low-acid vegetables. "It's undetected by taste or smell, but one taste can produce potentially deadly stroke-like symptoms," Fauser said. Janicek added, "Low-acid foods need to be pressure canned to kill the botulism spores." Tomatoes are borderline acidic, so safeguards include added lemon juice and increased processing times for many tomato products, Fauser said. Tested recipes use processing times based on the specific recipe's pH, the size of the jar, thickness of the product and even altitude. "That's why home canners need to stick to tested recipes and follow procedures precisely," Fauser said. "Just because the recipe has been published in a book doesn't mean it's been tested. There's no requirement for recipes to be safety tested," Fauser said. "The bottom line is that you have to take the safety into your own hands when you want to be a food processor." This recipe for Refrigerator Pickles allows you to save the best of your sum-

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste 4 sprigs fresh dill weed

1. In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, water, vinegar, dill, sugar, garlic, salt, pickling spice, dill seed and red pepper flakes. Stir, and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, until the sugar and salt dissolve. 2. Remove the cucumbers to three sterilized, 1 1/2 pint wide-mouth jars, placing 4 cucumbers into each jar. Ladle in the liquid from the bowl to cover. Place a sprig of fresh dill into each jar, and seal with lids. Refrigerate for 10 days before eating. Use within 1 month.

*Pickling Spice Mix

mer produce using modern methods for preserving vegetables.

Refrigerator Pickles If you can't find pickling spice, use some (or all) of the ingredients in the pickling spice recipe below to add a boost of flavor to your refrigerator pickles. This recipe also works well for all types of peppers, just omit the dill weed and dill seeds, and the red pepper flakes. 12 (3 to 4 inch long) pickling cucumbers 2 cups water 1 3/4 cups white vinegar 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh dill weed 3 tablespoons sugar 8 cloves garlic, chopped 2 tablespoons coarse salt 1 tablespoon pickling spice* 1 1/2 teaspoons dill seed

Sports Quiz Answers

Cherry Pork Chops

1) Current Angels skipper Mike Scioscia; 2) Boston's Jim Rice had 406 total bases in 1978; 3) Paul Hackett (1998-2000); 4) Vince Carter, with 9,420 points; 5) It was the 1999-2000 season; 6) Nineteen games; 7) True. He held the WBA cruiserweight belt (1986-88) and the IBF and WBC cruiserweight belts (1987-88) before going on to win world heavyweight titles.

Boneless pork loin chops cook quickly, and since they have no bones, it's easy to cut off all the excess fat. Fruit always goes nicely with pork -- and here we used some of the season's early cherries to make our special sauce.

Flashback Answers 1) Sutcliffe was the original bass player of The Beatles. A talented artist, he died at age 22 of a brain hemorrhage; 2) The Guess Who, in 1970. The song shot to No. 1 on the charts; 3) "Baby Workout." While appearing on stage in 1975, Wilson suffered a heart attack. Failure to resuscitate him quickly left him in a coma until he died in 1984; 4) Cleveland, likely chosen because that's where DJ Alan "Moondog" Freed hosted the first rock concert in 1952; 5) The legendary Bo Diddley, in 1960. The album title was probably a takeoff on "Have Gun - Will Travel," a television Western of the time; 6) Honey Cone, a girl group from Los Angeles. The 1971 song climbed the charts to No. 1, as did their next song, "Stick-Up," released the same year.

Certain farm equipment exempt from state sales tax In an effort to improve efficiency and simplify certain processes, the Louisiana Department of Revenue has revised its farmer certification process as described in Revenue Information Bulletin No. 09-034. Act 464 of the Regular Session of the 2009 Louisiana Legislature amended the sales tax exemption for farm equipment authorized by Louisiana Revised Statute 47:305.25 to require farmers and agricultural facilities to be certified by LDR in order to document their eligibility for the exemption. Beginning March 1, 2011, the Louisiana Department of Revenue began certifying eligible farmer or agricultural facilities using the R-1070 Application for Certification as a Manufacturer. Farmers and agricultural facilities will no longer apply for certification using the R-1085 form which has been discontinued. If the R-1070 application is approved, the farmer or agricultural facility will receive a Manufacturer’s Exemption Certificate (R-1071). The exemption certificate will serve as documentation that the applicant has been certified by LDR and is eligible for the exemption under Louisiana Revised Statute 47:305.25. Farmers are no longer be required to present the Farm Equipment Sales Tax Exemption Certificate (R-1060) to their vendors. The personalized Manufacturer Exemption certificate (R-1071) should be presented to vendors in lieu of the state sales tax on purchases of eligible “machinery and equipment”. Upon expiration of their Manufacturer’s Exemption Certificate, farmers and agricultural facilities must submit a new Application for Certification as a Manufacturer (R-1070) to be re-certified. As a holder of the Manufacturer’s Exemption certificate, a farmer will be able to purchase the equipment described in Louisiana R.S. 47:305.25 without the first $50,000 sales price limitation. Certified manufacturers/farmers can purchase the following classes of equipment without payment of state sales tax: • Rubber-tired farm tractors, cane harvesters, cane loaders, cotton pickers, combines, hay balers, and attachments and sprayers. This exemption includes all attachments and implements to be used for commercial agricultural purposes with a rubber-tired tractor, including particularly clippers, cultivators, discs, plows, and spreaders. • Irrigation wells, drives, motors, and equipment. • Other farm implements and equipment used for agricultural purposes in the production of food and fiber. • On-the-farm facilities used to dry or store grain or any materials used to construct such on the farm facilities. Additional information regarding qualifying machinery and equipment purchases may be found in the Louisiana Administrative Code regulation entitled Sales and Use Tax Exclusion for Manufacturing Machinery and Equipment (LAC 61:I:4301).

A Revenue Information Bulletin (RIB) is issued under the authority of LAC 61:III.101(D). A RIB is an informal statement of information issued for the public and employees that is general in nature. A RIB does not have the force and effect of law and is not binding on the public or the Department. Dealers may continue to accept LDR-approved Farmer of Agricultural Facility Certifications (R-1085) until the certificate expires. After the expiration of the R1085 form, applicants must re-apply for certification using the R-1070 form. Dealers are responsible for properly administering this sales tax exemption and may be held liable for payment of the sales tax if the exemption certificate is improperly accepted for equipment that clearly does not qualify for exemption under the statute. Farmers who are purchasing seed, fertilizers, pesticides, animal feed and other farm-related products that are exempt from state sales tax under other Louisiana statutes must continue to use the R-1007 Commercial Producers of Livestock, Livestock Products and Commercial Growers Purchases exemption certificate to document their exemption from state sales tax. Interested parties should contact the Special Programs Division at (225) 2192200 or email to sales.inquiries@la.gov Information taken from Revenue Information Bulletin No. 11-007.
