“Betty White is so old that on her first game show ever, the grand prize was fire.” Lisa Lampanelli


TV HOSTS Kathy Wolfe

We’ve invited these people into our living room for decades. This week, Tidbits invites you to examine the details on these television hosts. • Dick Clark first gained real fame as the host of “American Bandstand” from 1957 to 1987, where many famous artists, including Prince, Jackson 5, Sonny and Cher, and Aerosmith, got their start. Clark’s first job in the broadcasting industry was at age 16 when he started as a mail clerk at a Rome, New York, radio station owned by his uncle. It didn’t take long for him to move into the relief weatherman slot. During college, Clark worked at a country music station, and after graduation, nabbed his first television host job, that of “Cactus Dick and the Santa Fe Riders,” a country music program. In later years, Clark hosted the game show “Pyramid,” and broadcast “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” live from Times Square from 1973 to 2004, when he suffered a stroke. • “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron started out as a disc jockey at a Haverhill, Massachusetts, radio station.

I-25 Exit 78 & 80 SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach


ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a better perspective on what you’ve done and what still needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff ‘n’ stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work themselves out at their own pace. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Trying to uncover a colleague’s secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation.

is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in his or her way. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Uncertainty about who is right and who isn’t might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what you’re being asked to decide. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an extraordinary ability to rally people to do their best. You would be a treasure as a teacher. (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

Paw’s Corner by Sam Mazzotta How Long Should Dog Spend Alone in Yard?

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My toy poodle “Scraps” loves to run around in our big backyard. He never tries to get past the fence, so I usually leave him out while I clean house or handle other tasks. A few days ago, however, as I was calling Scraps inside, my next-door neighbor told me off for leaving him out there for hours. I don’t see anything wrong with him being out in our backyard. What’s your take? -- Miffed in Ocala, Florida

DEAR MIFFED: Your neighbor may simply have been worried for Scraps’ welfare. If the weather was hot, did you put out water for him to drink while he was outside? Could the neighbor see it? You also should consider dangers we don’t think about when we’re outside. Scraps is a toy poodle, so is small and light. He may not be interested in escaping under the fence, but he may look kind of tasty to a bird of prey. In some suburban neighborhoods, coyotes roam through backyards, and Scraps wouldn’t stand a chance against such a predator. At the very least, make sure Scraps has a shaded area to rest in when he’s outside, and has plenty of water to drink. Check on him every 15 to 30 minutes. And bring him in after one to two hours -- don’t leave him outside for long stretches, or all day. You can let him out again after a couple of hours’ rest indoors, again for just an hour or two. More importantly, give him more one-on-one attention. He may love being outside, but Scraps would adore playing fetch with you or reviewing basic commands like sit, stay and lie down.
