Q: I was wondering if the “John Carter” movie you mentioned this spring is based on the sciencefiction books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I hope so, because I’ve read them all and believe they could be made into a great series of sci-fi movies. — Paul R., Marion, Indiana A: The March release of Disney’s “John Carter” is indeed based on Burroughs’ Barsoom book series, which were published in various magazines as a serial from 1912 to 1943. Because of their popularity, they were then published as their own book series from 1917 to 1964. The film, however, didn’t prove to be quite so popular. It was received with mixed reviews and a dismal box-office take. The film was originally planned to be a trilogy, but that plan is on hold because of the film’s poor reception by moviegoers. “John Carter” is available on DVD and Bluray, so you can see for yourself whether it deserves a sequel. Q: What was Emily VanCamp in before she was on “Revenge”? I recognized her as soon as I saw her, but I cannot remember from what! — Iris V., Suffolk, Va. A: The gorgeous Canadian actress has been in the business since she was 13, making her debut on Nickelodeon’s “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” But before “Revenge,” she was best known for her role on “Everwood,” Emily VanCamp where she played Amy Abbott. She also had a co-starring role from 2007-2010, playing Rebecca Harper, who initially was thought to be William Walker’s (Tom Skerritt) daughter with longtime mistress Holly Harper (Patricia Wettig). Take note that the second season of “Revenge” begins Sept. 30 on ABC on its new night and time, Sundays at 9/8c. Q: I am a die-hard “Young and the Restless” fan. I have a question about the actress who plays Katherine Chancellor in the series. I heard that she has sons who are also actors. Could it be the Baldwins? — Janet C., Battle Creek, Mich. A: Jeanne Cooper, who’s played matriarch Katherine Chancellor on the series since 1973, does indeed have children (two sons, one daughter) who are actors: Corbin, Collin and Caren. The eldest is Corbin Bernsen, who is best known for playing Arnold Becker on “L.A. Law” and Roger Dorn in “Major League.” He plays the recurring role of Father Todd Williams on his mom’s show, and he also is a series regular on the USA’s “Psych.” Q: When will Syfy’s “Merlin” be back for its fifth season? Please tell me it has not been canceled — Gregory D., via email A: The British sci-fi/fantasy series will indeed be back for a fifth season, which will consist of 13 all-new episodes. The series began filming in Wales and in France this spring, and if all follows according to previous seasons’ trends, season five should premiere in the U.K. in December, and in the U.S. in late spring/early summer (although no official dates have been released yet).

(KSL-TV), on (“Law & Order�) “SVU,� rape and child murder is OK? But, (a) loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate?� The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) said, “Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Glee’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported (these kind of) shows, KSL (TV) is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country.� *** The upcoming election has taken over our televisions. Big-name stars are choosing sides, while the media and the TV networks perpetuate the myth that the American people actually elect the president of the United States. In fact, it’s the people we elect to represent us in Washington, D.C., who make up the Electoral College that actually selects our president. In a perfect world, they’d vote the way we the people do, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. In 1824, John Quincy Adams was elected president, but Andrew Jackson

Are You Prepared to Retire? Retirement used to conjure up images of lazy days spent in a rocking chair. Today’s retirement is very different. You might plan to open a business of your own. Or perhaps you’ll return to school for that degree you never had the chance to complete. So what does this redefined retirement mean to you? There is no one answer. In the coming decades, “retirement� will mean something different to each of us. Regardless of your decision, you’ll need to design a financial plan suited to your specific vision of the future. Income Is Key A good starting point might be to examine your sources of retirement income. If you pay attention to the financial press, you’ve probably come across at least a few commentators who speak in gloom-and-doom terms about the future for American retirees, decrying a lack of savings and warning of the imminent growth of the elderly population. True, there is widespread concern about at least one traditional source of income for retirees -- Social Security. Under current conditions, Social Security funds could fall short of needs by 2033.1 This shift makes it even more important for individuals to understand their goals and have a well-thought-out financial plan that focuses on the key source of retirement income: personal savings and investments. Given the potential duration and changing nature of retirement, you may want to seek the assistance of a professional financial planner who can help you assess your needs and develop appropriate investment strategies. As you move through the various stages of the new retirement, perhaps working at times and resting at others, your plan may require adjustments along the way. A professional advisor can help you monitor your plan and make changes when necessary. Among the factors you’ll need to consider: Time: You can project periods of retirement, reeducation, and full employment. Then concentrate on a plan to fund each of the separate periods. The number of years until you retire will influence the types of investments you include in your portfolio. If retirement is a short-term goal, investments that provide liquidity and help preserve your principal may be most suitable. On the other hand, if retirement is many years away, you may be able to include more aggressive investments in your portfolio. Inflation: While lower-risk fixed-income and money market investments may play an important role in your investment portfolio, if used alone they may leave you susceptible to the erosive effects of inflation. To help your portfolio keep pace with inflation, you may need to maintain some growth-oriented investments. Over the long-term, stocks have provided returns superior to other asset classes.2 But also keep in mind that stocks generally involve greater short-term volatility. Taxes: Even after you retire, taxes will remain an important factor in your overall financial plan. If you return to work or open a business, for example, your tax bracket could change. In addition, should you move from one state to another, state or local taxes could affect your bottom line. Tax-advantaged investments, such as annuities and tax-free mutual funds, may be effective tools for meeting your retirement goals. Tax deferral offered by workplace plans -- such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans -- and IRAs may also help your retirement savings grow. Prepare Today for the Retirement of Tomorrow To ensure that retirement lives up to your expectations, begin establishing your plan as early as possible and consider consulting with a professional. With proper planning, you may be able to make your retirement whatever you want it to be.

HOLLYWOOD — If you thought that censorship in television doesn’t happen in today’s progressive society, you’d be wrong. “American Horror Story,� “Nip/Tuck� and “Glee� producer Ryan Murphy isn’t “Glee�ful these days, thanks to KLS-TV, the NBC station in Salt Lake City, Utah, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka Mormans, who banned his upcoming show, “The New Normal,� even before its premiere. Seems they objected to the premise of a gay couple having a baby via a single-mom surrogate who has a “smallminded� grandmother, played by film star Ellen Barkin. Barkin immediately tweeted back, “Shame on u

won the popular vote. In l876, Rutherford Hayes won, but Samuel Tilden was the people’s choice. In 1888, the incumbent President Grover Cleveland won the popular vote, but Benjamin Harrison was elected to office. More recently, George W. Bush took office after the 2000 election, even though Al Gore was the popular vote-getter. So how much weight does our vote actually have? We would all be wise to stop accepting what the news media tells us and try to find a better way to pick our presidents in the future. *** Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story� is going through major changes. When the show returns in October for its second season, it will be called “American Horror Story: Asylum.� Two-time Oscar winner Jessica Lange returns, but Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton are gone. Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes are main cast members, while Mark Consuelos and “The Voice’s� Adam Levine are recurring. You won’t hear Adam’s singing “Voice� on this one, else they’d have to call it “American Horror Story: The Musical Asylum�!

I have several Life magazines from the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s. How do I sell them? — Lorraine, Surprise, Ariz. Life magazines are not as rare as you might think. Even though certain issues are more desirable than others, most are currently selling for about $10 each. Collectors are especially interested in the Beatles, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe covers. To sell your magazines, you might contact the Brass Armadillo antique mall, 12419 N. 28th Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85029, to see if there is any interest. ***

Q:

At a recent auction I purchased four large boxes of books, many from the early years of the past century. I suspect I might have a few that are quite valuable. How can I find out without hiring an appraiser? — Ted, St. Charles, Mo. Go to www.abe.com. Type in the name and author of a book, and a list of dealers offering that book for sale will appear on your computer. The edition of a book is extremely important. For example, the first printing of Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” often sells for $25,000 and more; later editions for much less. As with most collectibles, condition also is an important factor.

By Samantha Weaver

• It was British playwright and noted wit Oscar Wilde who made the following sage observation: “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” • If you’re like the typical human, your brain makes up only 2 percent of your body’s weight, but it uses about 20 percent of your body’s en-

ergy. • Some people, it seems, have more money than sense. For example, in December of 2008, some unknown person paid $5,300 to buy a single tissue off eBay. What was so special about the tissue? Reportedly, it was used once by actress Scarlett Johansson. Fortunately, proceeds from

the sale benefited a nonprofit organization. • The average ant lives less than two months. • Using leeches as a form of medical treatment is archaic, right? Maybe not so much. As recently as 2004, a request to market leeches as medical devices was approved by the Food and Drug

Administration. • When the infamous Titanic was being built, shifts were 14 hours a day, and workers only had one day off a week. Each day, each worker was allowed a total of seven minutes for bathroom breaks. • Those who study such things say that marriages involving so-called mail-order brides have a lower rate of divorce than marriages that come about in more traditional ways. *** Thought for the Day: “Among men, it seems, his-

torically at any rate, that processes of co-ordination and disintegration follow each other with great regularity, and the index of the co-ordination is the measure of the disintegration which follows. There is no mob like a group of well-drilled soldiers when they have thrown off their discipline. And there is no lostness like that which comes to a man when a perfect and certain pattern has dissolved about him. There is no hater like one who has greatly loved.” — John Steinbeck (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

If you’re trying to reduce the amount of salt you use to season your savory dishes, try lemon juice. Nothing adds zest or intensity to a dish like a squeeze of lemon. Lemons also act as a flavor catalyst, preparing the taste buds for the next flavor. Lemons provide a burst of brightness, flavor and freshness to your recipes. Bright, yellow, tart and tangy, lemons are one of nature’s most versatile, healthy and delicious fruits. Since lemons are available throughout the year, they make an attractive, affordable and accessible recipe ingredient. Adding lemon juice to marinades for grilled recipes is a great way to brighten up the flavors. You also can grill lemon halves and squeeze the smoky juices over your dish for an added flavor boost. Try using a fresh, fragrant lemon for this Lemon Ginger Chicken with Carrot Cashew Slaw recipe. It’s guaranteed to brighten up your day!

Roddick Calls It Quits What (were) Andy Roddick’s chances at winning the U.S. Open? “As good as anybody not named Roger,” said Andy ... perhaps the most quotable tennis player in the history of the sport. Andy called it in at this year’s U.S. Open, announcing his retirement after the first round of the tournament. I’m sure there’s a joke in that headline somewhere — that he usually retires around the first round of a championship but that would, of course, be a joke. For Andy Roddick was a champion ... albeit a champion with very bad timing. Andy Roddick held the torch of American tennis for the better part of a decade. And by “better part,” we mean “better part.” This guy at one time held the record for fastest serve (155 mph ... you just try doing that on the highway), he hosted “Satur-

day Night Live,” and he married Brooklyn Decker. Did I mention he had a really fast serve? But Andy Roddick had a problem at birth: He was born at the same time as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Unfortunately for the script, those guys played better tennis. It certainly wasn’t for lack of trying. Sure, Roddick was a fiery, tempestuous sort of player. He needed to get psyched up before every match as if he was Matthew Modine in “Vision Quest.” But when he won, he won big. There aren’t many tennis players or champs from any game that can say they won the U.S. Open (2003) and 32 career titles. Roddick had a flair for drama, and his announced retirement during the middle of a tournament didn’t seem too out of place for the man. Though not an outsized per-

sonality or multi Grand Slam winner like McEnroe or Connors, he still managed to get into the club. In another decade or so, ask yourself who was a dominant male American tennis player at the turn of the century. You’re not going to say “Mardi Fish,” or anyone else for that matter. He’s only 30 years old. I bet he comes back, and if he doesn’t, something tells me he’ll find another line of work. For those of us in the post-game business, he’ll be sorely missed. Rarely has an athlete been more forthcoming at a press conference. Hey Andy, you just lost at Indian Wells to an inferior player and said your confi-

dence was shot ... can you elaborate? “It comes from playing like s**t. Why would I feel confident right now? If that was the case, I don’t think we’d be sitting here having this funeral-like press conference. It’s just weird because, I used to like, hit for a half-hour and then go eat Cheetos the rest of the day ... come out and drill forehands. Now I’m really trying to make it happen, being professional, really going for it ... and I miss my Cheetos.” We’re gonna miss you too, Andy Roddick.

Earth’s mightiest ulations of their university. superheroes are assembled Violet and her gals seeks to into one team to defend the recruit Lily, a transfer stuworld from an alien inva- dent, into their little circle so sion led by Loki, the Norse she might learn their ways god of chaos. Add that of dating only socially inept weird plot to truckloads of guys and civilizing the special effects and a star- party-animal demographic. Director Wilt Stillman studded cast wearing colorful costumes, and somehow puts the humor into the cait all works. Of course it’s dence and delivery of the inloud and silly, but it’s also a nuendo-laden dialogue. This very fun ride, even for those isn’t a National Lampoonwho own fewer than 100 style college romp, but an eccentric, banter-heavy comic books. Other super-movies have comedy about people with

good intentions. “The Tall Man” (R) — In a remote town where the weather forecast is always ominously grey skies, the townsfolk spread a creepy little rumor. Children go missing, and people say it’s because of a tall man. Jessica Biel plays a local nurse who doesn’t buy the story, until her own boy disappears. She goes on a parent’s nightmare journey for her child, only to get lost in a series of plot twists, conspiracies and missed opportunities for the movie to end on a reasonable note. “Soldiers of Fortune” (R) — Christian Slater is a tough ex-military kinda guy hired to protect some millionaires who want frontrow tickets to a real war zone. Naturally and deservedly, the mission goes horribly awry and everybody’s lives are put in danger (more than anticipated, I guess). This is one of those movies you see for rent that you’ve never heard of, but when you check the box it’s got a decent cast (Sean Bean, Ving Rhames, James Cromwell). Yet should you cross the line and attempt to watch this movie at home, you will be treated to an early bedtime by this snoozefest of a convoluted action movie.

President ‘Incomplete’ “Are people better off than they were four years ago?” is hardly a trick question. It’s one of the most reliable cliches in American politics. So Gov. Martin O’Malley, a Democrat from Maryland, should have been ready with some handy dodge when he was asked the question by Bob Schieffer of “Face the Nation.” Really, in the circumstance, any circumlocution would do. Instead, O’Malley said “No,” igniting a firestorm with his unadorned, monosyllabic honesty. Which didn’t last. Within 24 hours, the skies had brightened, the malaise had lifted, and O’Malley was pronouncing the country “clearly better off.” O’Malley can be forgiven for his initial forthrightness. People who make their living coming up with creative ways to avoid questions inconvenient to President Barack Obama didn’t do all that much better. Asked twice on “Fox News Sunday” if Americans are better off, David Axelrod pointedly wouldn’t say “yes” or “no.” Asked three times on “This Week,” David Plouffe passed on a direct answer all three times. After getting knocked around for their evasiveness, though, the Obama team recalibrated and decided to answer “absolutely” to the better-off question. The herald of the new message was none other than the man best-suited to bluster his way through a not-particularly credible statement, Vice President Joe Biden. “America is better off today than they left us when they left,” Biden told a union rally, before adducing as evidence what he called a “bumper sticker”: “Osama bin Laden is dead and Gen-

eral Motors is alive.” The catchy bumper sticker doesn’t address the betteroff question. The query has to do with personal economic well-being. It’s a wonderful thing that bin Laden was dispatched, but it doesn’t give anyone any additional income. It’s terrific for GM’s remaining workers that they are still working, but the cost of the car company’s bailout — some $35 billion — makes it a rotten deal for everyone else. A clever bumper sticker can’t obscure that real median income has declined $4,300 since January 2009, the unemployment rate has been above 8 percent for 42 straight months, and longterm unemployment is up and labor-force participation is down. The Democrats can say all of this is an accident of timing: The aftereffects of the Bush recession are unfairly counted against their record. But the recovery that they take credit for is also an accident of timing. The economy wasn’t going to keep shedding 800,000 jobs a month forever. In fact, the recovery proved dismayingly lackluster. President Obama’s signature initiatives — a stimulus designed to sate pent-up congressional spending demands, ObamaCare, the hideously complex regulations of Dodd-Frank — were irrelevant to or crosswise with promoting a sustained, robust recovery. Now, the president gives himself a grade of “incomplete,” as if he has much else yet to accomplish. Yet his stated second-term agenda consists only of a tax increase on the wealthy, and getting along with the same congressional Republicans he can’t abide. There’s evidently nothing for him to complete, except riding out the consequences of his misbegotten first term. Eventually, American will be better off than they were in 2008. When that day finally comes, this president will have had nothing to do with it. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. © 2012 by King Features Synd., Inc.

Leg Pain a Sign of Blocked Artery DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My wife’s doctor thinks she has intermittent claudication due to peripheral vascular disease. She also has diabetes. Would you describe it and its treatment? — S.B. ANSWER: Peripheral vascular disease also goes by the name peripheral artery disease, PAD. “Peripheral” refers to the outer boundary, and when speaking of the body, the legs are its periphery. Leg arteries are narrowed and often blocked by the buildup of cholesterol, fat and many other components found in the circulation. The buildup is called plaque. The buildup can be so great that no blood runs through the main leg arteries. Intermittent claudication is leg pain that develops when someone with PAD walks any distance. The person can tell, almost to the number of steps taken, when pain will arise. Taking a rest relieves the pain. About 15 percent of those 70 and older have PAD. Its main sign is intermittent claudication. Your wife can do many things on her own that will help her. If her cholesterol is high, she has to get it down. She has to maintain normal blood pressure. She must exercise within the limits prescribed by her doctor. Walking is one of the best exercises. If she starts out modestly and gradually increases the distance and pace, she should aim for 30 minutes of walking daily. When pain arises, she should stop, take a break and then resume once pain has gone. One simple test for determining PAD is comparing blood pressure taken at the ankle with blood pressure taken in the arm. They should be nearly equal. If the ankle pressure is lower, that’s evidence of PAD. Your wife’s doctor will discuss the use of medicines like Plavix, Pletal and aspirin. With severe blockage

of an artery, opening it up with a balloon-tipped catheter and inserting a shunt is one treatment. It’s the same procedure used for clogged heart arteries. Removing the obstructed artery segment and replacing it with a graft is another way to treat this illness. The booklet on PAD discusses the details of this common malady in depth. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 109, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Ever since I was 10 years old, I have had this problem: If I set something down or reach or touch something, I have to touch it again to make it feel right. When I hang clothes, I reach for a hanger and then put it back for a different one. I do things like this all day. I am 55. Am I crazy? — N.H. ANSWER: You describe obsessive-compulsive disorder. You’re not crazy. Many people have it. It’s an irresistible urge to perform a certain ritual, like touching things a second time or constantly washing the hands. That’s the compulsion, an act that relieves inner unease, the obsession. Help is available. Ask the family doctor to refer you to a specialist in this disorder. You’ve put up with it for too long. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.
