My Little Corner By Shannon Robin I spent the majority of last weekend in Calgary attending orientation sessions with Pincher Creek’s Rotary exchange student, Iris Wang. Iris is on what is no doubt the most incredible journey of her life so far, and my role is to ensure things go as smoothly as possible during her stay in our community. Tom, Lisa and Whitney Holoboff are the first local family to host Iris in their home. Tom and Lisa’s oldest daughter, Katrina, is currently in Brazil for a year as the outbound exchange student from Pincher Creek. It’s an exciting time for everyone, but also a stressful one. As Tom and Lisa are missing Katrina, they understand how Iris’s parents are feeling in Taiwan. There are language barriers and homesickness to deal with along with the good stuff. Iris arrived Sept. 6, and I was at the airport with the Holoboffs to welcome her. We watched the crowd for a face that matched her photo and held up signs to make it easier for her to find us. After 16 hours of travel, it was no surprise that Iris slept most of the way from Calgary to Pincher Creek. In the time she was awake she snapped photos, and I was impressed by her English skills. Traditionally, an incoming exchange student would spend the first two weeks at the home of her counsellor, prior to getting settled in her first host home. It’s meant to be a time of bonding and building trust – if Iris encounters any difficulties during her stay, she needs to be comfortable coming to me. Thanks to visa issues, though, Iris arrived almost a month later than anticipated, and the next morning she was off to Saskatchewan for 10 days with the Holoboffs. It was important to them to have Iris meet their extended family as they took in a wedding and Grandma’s 100th birthday. This left Iris and me a bit behind in getting to know one another, so last weekend was a great opportunity for us to connect. It was also her first chance to meet the other students visiting the

district, and to join them in sharing experiences as newcomers to Canada. Iris and I share interests in photography and music, giving us some common ground to begin building a relationship on. Many of the questions were thought-provoking, while others were silly. It was awesome to see her relaxed and comfortable, and to hear her laugh for the first time. We were told to exchange a recipe and I found it difficult to pull something out of thin air. In the end, I shared our family Thanksgiving traditions. The ingredients of dressing seemed to make sense, and we wound up in a fit of giggles as I tried to explain how it would be stuffed inside the turkey to be cooked. Lisa, she’ll be watching you this weekend! The next day, I found an Asian market and bought noodles for Iris to use in making a special dish for her host family, and mooncakes. Taiwan’s biggest celebration happened to be on Sunday, and mooncakes are part of the Mid-Autumn Festival tradition. I was glad to have a chance to learn about one of her cultural traditions and to help her share this with the Holoboffs. It was great to learn that the best thing Iris has experienced so far is a trip to Waterton that included seeing two bears. It was interesting to hear how many students had visited the park and considered it to be a highlight of their exchange so far. A fun challenge to my fellow Rotarians will be to have them learn to say the Four-Way Test in Mandarin. I had to say it in Finnish in front of a roomful of people, with help from another exchange student named Anni. It was a fun and productive time but there were many serious topics, as well, regarding the safety and security of the students. Iris has many adventures ahead of her this year and I hope the community will welcome her with open arms as she learns through us about Canadian and Alberta culture.

And a wild night it was! By Toni Lucas A priest, a flapper, a Prohibitionist, a cowboy and a madam walk into a speakeasy bar.... No, this is not a the start of a joke, but a few of the characters who appeared Saturday at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village during the Wild Night at the Waldorf 1920s Gala. Windy Hollow Players, volunteers, staff and guests showed up in costume, many in character. Over 100 people came to revel in the post-war boom. Ladies and gentlemen attended, dressed to the nines. Flasks were hidden inside pinstriped suits and garters. Guns, feather boas and cigarette holders were in evidence everywhere. The priest looked upon the night’s events with a jaundiced eye and long-suffering attitude. Patrons of the hotel received the princely sum of $25 in Kootenai Cash, the average fulltime working salary for a month during those times. They could use it to make tips, bribe officials, staff, and gamblers, and play games of chance that were openly rigged. There were even signs up that said “The house always wins, thank you for playing.” Meanwhile, undercover cop Sgt. Joseph Sloppy accepted bribes while handing out fines, and bathtub gin flowed freely at the bar. Pincher Creek Multimedia supplied an upbeat mix of 1920s music. Jackie Therriault and Kevin Fitzpatrick played fantastic live music of the era, and Chris Davis sat in for a few songs. The Bloomin’ Inn catered a fine meal. Colleen Cyr, president of Pincher Creek

Shootin’ the Breeze October 3/12 Page 3

and District Historical Society, reminded the guests that this was a fundraiser to help create depictions of five Co-op stores in the Pincher Creek area of days gone by, on the building the party was hosted in. The Waldorf Hotel eventually became the lumberyard, and housed the Co-op administration. Colleen pointed out other ways to con-

tribute to this cause, which include donating a cream can for $250 to $300, or a feedsack for $100. Donors can have their family name attached to the artifact they sponsor in the the new Co-op display. If you would like to donate, or find out more information, please contact the museum. Pincher Creek Co-op donated prizes for best-dressed man (Paul Bruder), lady (Chris Bruder) and couple (Al and Debi Cornyn). Bloomin’ Inn donated dinner and door prizes, and the person who accumulated the most funny money during the night got a prize from Town and Country Liquor Store. The Windy Hollow Players announced themselves to the crowd at the end of the night. As it turned out, they were not just other patrons. The cowboy, the priest, a bartender and the madam, as well as others in costume, were part of a large undercover sting operation that was bringing in law and order. They arrested the dirty cop, shut down the gambling tables and confiscated the liquor, bringing the wild night to a close. The board, staff, volunteers, organizations and members of the public that attended to support this venture all were great sports and deserve a round of applause for the fantastic night they provided. The next big event on the grounds will be the family-friendly Harvest Fest, Oct. 19 and 20. Kootenai Brown will host a Best Fall Photo contest for the event. For more information, call Toni at the museum at 403-627-3684. See more photos in this week’s online edition at www.shootinthebreeze.ca .

A pair of skates is all it takes By Linda Dorge

Photo by Jaiden Panchyshyn Mina Wood was one of 17 performers from Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek and area who demonstrated their prowess at An Afternoon of Music on Sunday.

Local musicians shine for Alberta Culture Days Area musicians delighted their audience with An Afternoon of Music in Blairmore, Sunday. Styles ranged from classical to contemporary and jazz music, and included familiar traditional tunes along with personal arrangments and compositions. The youngest performer was Adrijanna Cooley on piano, who sang along while playing “I Like Koosh Balls,” a little song she composed herself. Other pianists included Solomon Cooley, Mina Wood, Jasmine Sydora and Nathan Sydora. Violinists played solos, duets, trios, quartets and everyone joined in the finale pieces. Caden Pichurski, Sophia Groves, Marieka Welke, Kristen Pundyk, Kate Pundyk and Jasmine Sydora rosined their bows and provided a variety of string music. Becky Pichurski and Carly Perkin accompanied themselves on guitar and filled the air with their lovely voices. Wendell Kisner also sang and played guitar, joined by Debbie Goldstein on bass and Tynan Groves on banjo. Debbie also demonstrated her cello skills in opening numbers, with Shelly Groves on violin. One of the final pieces was “Blackberry Blossom,” with Shelly on violin and Tynan on electric guitar. The Groves duo tapped their toes in time together and exchanged a smile at the end of the piece. Making music with family and friends is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Well done, everyone!

Crowsnest Pass Skating Club provides instruction from a registered Skate Canada coach. Irene Frasers, our head coach, is passionate about the sport and the development of the skater by instilling the fundamentals of development, movement, motor and sport skills. Irene plays an essential role in the delivery of the long-term athlete development concept, which allows for individual development and progress. This, in turn, promotes skating for fun, fitness and achievement. Irene’s leadership not only creates an athlete for today but an individual for tomorrow. Crowsnest Pass Skating Club has been a proud member of Skate Canada for over 50 years and our club holds true to the above statement. Irene is certified to coach our various programs. Skaters are registered in one of the programs based on age and ability. Our club is not defined as a figure skating club as it offers so much more. The term now used is “learn to skate.” We offer a Power Can Skate program that is geared toward hockey and ringette players and was developed by a team of hockey, figure skating and ringette experts. The action‐ packed, high-energy instructional program

focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. The fundamentals of power skating include skills, techniques and conditioning drills which are taught in a progressive and sequential manner, emphasizing how the skills apply to game situations. Can Power Skate provides an alternative to figure skating and is an excellent complement for these athletes. Its unique skill-award program provides incentives and motivation for skaters to continue to achieve. Our preschool program is a learn-toskate program targeting skaters five years and younger. This is a great introduction to the skating world. The program has weekly themes and various props to make it fun. Skaters do not realize they are learning to glide on one foot as they kick the ball or play “red light, green light,” which improves their ability to stop. These are a few examples of games used to improve skating development. Once these skills are met, the passion for skating grows and the skater will continually show signs of development. For further information regarding the Crowsnest Pass Skating programs offered in our community, please contact Sheila Rae Oliveri at 403-562-2731 or Irene Fraser at 403-564-5176. A pair of skates is really all you need. We will do the rest!

Terry Fox, uncle and namesake to a Canadian hero, shared a poignant message with a full assembly of students at Matthew Halton High School in Pincher Creek last Thursday. “If you young people don’t remember my nephew, his dream will die,” he said. The students responded with a standing ovation as they prepared to set out on their annual Terry Fox Walk in support of cancer research. Over $6,000 was raised for the Terry Fox Foundation by young people in Crowsnest Pass, Lundbreck and Pincher Creek. See more photos in this week’s online edition at www.shootinthebreeze.ca .

The Legacy Continues ...

I am so pleased to introduce Amber Scott as the excited new owner of Ruffles. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have realized my dream, which was enriched beyond words by the special people who have passed through Ruffles’ door for the past 13 years while I enjoyed ownership. It is time for a new chapter in my life, and so I wish Amber beautiful days ahead as she starts a wonderful new chapter in her life. I ask all who have enjoyed Ruffles in the past to continue to support Amber and enjoy her enthusiasm and great style. With love and much gratitude, Karen Andrew

I am ever so grateful to be given the opportunity to continue the legacy of Ruffles. I fondly remember shopping with my mother as a young girl, and dreaming of one day owning my own boutique. The Ruffles you know and have come to love will continue with the same great philosophy of exceptional customer service and fashion-forward clothing and accessories. I’m looking forward to serving both old and new customers and appreciate your continued support. I wish Karen the best in her new endeavours! Amber (Queenie) Scott

“Better Off Without ‘Em: A Northern Manifesto for Southern Secession” by Chuck Thompson (Simon & Schuster, $25) Reviewed by Larry Cox Author Chuck Thompson builds a convincing case that the American South is essentially a separate country that negatively affects the rest of the United States in his new book, “Better Off Without ‘Em: A Northern Manifesto for Southern Secession.” Everyone jokes about secession, and some politicians -- like Texas Gov. Rick Perry -- have even threatened it. But what if it actually happened, Thompson wondered? What would the measurable impact be, and which side would be better off economically, politically and culturally? Thompson, who has written for publications such as The Atlantic Monthly and Esquire, uses wit to make his points as he explores the consequences of jettisoning 78 million people and a half-million square miles of land. He claims the American South generates “so much of the willful igno-

rance and Jim Crow-style hatred that it keeps the rest of the country from moving ahead.” Humor aside, some of Thompson’s statistics are, indeed, rather shocking. For example, with the exception of Florida, no southern state contributes more money in federal tax revenues than it gets back in government assistance and entitlements. According to 2010 U.S. Census estimates, 10 of the 15 states with the lowest high-school and college graduation rates are in the South (11 if you count Texas). Of the 10 states with the fewest adults holding high-school diplomas, eight are in the South. It also is home to the nation’s five poorest states, where nearly 40 percent of people are impoverished. With acid-tongued wit, Thompson dives head first into the land of blackeyed peas, mustard greens and red-eye gravy. As a longtime former resident of Alaska, Thompson claims he maintains a certified outsider’s perspective on American politics. “Better Off Without ‘Em” combines scathing humor, caustic opinion, colorful travel writing, jaw-dropping interviews and solid academic research in a entertaining and thought-provoking book that sticks to the ribs like cheese grits and pecan pie.

By Steve Becker AN OLD FAVORITE B. Jay Becker, the former editor of this column, liked to tell this story about the time he was playing with Helen Sobel in the Masters Team-of-Four championship many years ago. The bidding went as shown, and Becker became declarer at four spades. West led the K-Q-J of hearts, South trumping the third heart. Becker’s principal problem was how to try to avoid losing two trump tricks. Several approaches were possible. If West had the K-J-x of spades, for example, declarer could not afford to play the ace and another spade, which would allow West to score the king and jack for down one. Alternatively, if East had the K-J-x and South led the ace and another trump, the contract would still be in danger if East took the second spade and returned the jack. In that case, Becker would not be able to ruff his losing club in dummy. Then there was also the possibility that the club loser could be averted by taking

a diamond finesse, or by cashing the A-K of diamonds and ruffing a diamond, hoping the queen would fall. As Becker weighed these options in his mind, he took lots and lots of time. After a while, Mrs. Sobel got up from the table, wandered around the room, came back to see whether her partner had played a card yet (which he hadn’t), went off again and eventually settled down at a nearby sofa to read a magazine. Meanwhile, Becker’s opponents chatted amiably, occasionally getting up to stretch or get a drink of water. Time went on. Finally, after more than 15 minutes, he decided to play the ace and another spade. When the trumps divided 2-2, he claimed the rest. Every other conceivable line of play also would have worked. Mrs. Sobel returned to the table shortly afterward and asked anxiously, “Did you make it?” “Sure,” said Becker, “it was a laydown!” (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.


PHOTO: Kellie Martin Q: I am so happy to hear that “Army Wives” has been renewed for another season. Will all the stars be back for the new season? -- Fiona W., via email A: Lifetime has indeed ordered 13 more episodes of the hit military drama for a 2013 seventh season. However, not all the details of who will be returning have been worked out. Catherine Bell appears to be a yes, while Dana Delany is most likely a no. Kelli Wilson, who plays Jackie Clark, seems a likely candidate to slip into a more prominent role. And don’t count out newcomer Kellie Martin, who plays Capt. Nicole Galassini. She told me recently that she’d be up for another tour of duty with “Wives.” “I was honored to play this woman,” Kellie said. “I thought she was so brave and so smart, yet in her personal life she had to hide, and it was really fun to play someone who comes out. I feel like Capt. Galassin is the girl next door. Everybody knows someone like her. I’m just very proud of “Army Wives” and Lifetime for following through with the storyline that they did. “Last we saw Nicole, she was on a

plane to Afghanistan at the season end, and there was a lot of turbulence ... but I had a great time and I never ever know where my career’s going to head, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.” In the meantime, you can catch Kellie in the Hallmark Channel original movie “I Married Who?” airing Saturday, Oct. 20, at 9/8c. *** Q: What has happened to “CSI: Miami”? Has it been canceled? -- Bill V., via e-mail A: CBS opted back in May not to renew the David Caruso-starring crime drama after 10 seasons and 232 episodes. However, you can still whet your “CSI” appetite with the original “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on Wednesday nights with Ted Danson and Elisabeth Shue, and “CSI: NY” with Gary Sinise and Sela Ward on

Prepare yourself for 20 informative and somewhat-scary episodes beginning Sunday, Nov. 11, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. This season the team of investigators will travel worldwide in search of the ever-elusive sasquatch, heading to Australia to investigate the phenomenon known as “yowies” and to Indonesia to scout out the “orang-pendek” creature. *** Q: I was wondering if two of my favorite reality shows will be back: “L.A. Ink” and “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.” -- N.P. in Kentucky A: I hate to have to deliver this double-whammy of bad news for you, but neither “L.A. Ink” nor “Family Jewels” has been renewed for a new season, and therefore won’t be returning to TLC and A&E, respectively. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Butter Churn Q: Earlier this year, I went to a farm auction in West Texas, where I purchased a Daizy brand butter churn and six crocks of various sizes. I would like to know what they are worth. -- Bill, Clarksville, Tenn. A: The Daizy churn might be worth about $75 if it is in decent condition. The value of the crocks would depend on size, manufacturer and condition. *** Q: I have a tumbler that was made with Pittsburgh Glass. I have been told that it is quite early. I love the tumbler and want to learn more about this type of glass. -- Susan, Naperville, Ill. A: According to the 20th edition of

Butterscotch & “Cookie” Dessert I don’t know too many folks who are too full to dig into a luscious serving of dessert. This scrumptious dessert is no exception! 18 (2 1/2-inch) chocolate graham crackers

Schroeder’s Antiques Price Guide, window glass and hollow ware were being produced in the Pittsburgh area as early as 1797. Coal was used instead of wood to fire the large glass furnaces. At one time, more than 150 glass companies flourished in the region. During the Victorian era, dozens of free-blown, pattern-molded and flint glass were produced. I suspect your tumbler was probably made sometime during the late 19th to early 20th centuries. *** Q: I have six copies of Life magazine, including those depicting Martin Luther King’s assassination and funeral, the Marvels of Egypt, and the 1969 Year in Review issue. I also have an Esquire magazine and Harper’s Bazaar, both from 1937. -- Pat, Conyngham, Pa. A: A quick check of several magazine dealers confirmed that most issues of Life magazine from the 1960s are worth an average of about a dollar per issue. Like all collectibles, there are always exceptions. *** Q: I recently inherited a teapot and

several serving pieces in the Tea Leaf pattern. I like the simplicity of the design, and I would like to find more about it. -- Betty, Naperville, Ill. A: Tea Leaf china was one of the most popular patterns to be carried west during the American expansion of the post-Civil War period. This durable stoneware was perfect for the rough and tumble West and has remained popular with collectors for more than 150 years. One of the best sources is the Tea Leaf Club International, 960 Bruden Road, Columbus, OH 43205.

meltdown of 1986. At first they love the spooky abandoned apartment buildings and old nuclear facilities. Of course, when things get dark, their van won’t start and it’s clear they’re not alone, their joy turns to terror. Director Oren Peli (creator of “Paranormal Activity) just doesn’t deliver the suspense, and the horror falls flat. PHOTO: Jared Gilman in “Moonrise Kingdom” PICKS OF THE WEEK “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” (PG) -- The talking animals of the Madagascar series are back on a quest to get to their home at the zoo. Alex the lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), King Julien the lemur (Sacha Baron Cohen) and all the rest are still on for this third installment. This time, the animals find themselves lost in Europe and decide to join a traveling circus as a means of transportation. It’s the third movie in a series that wasn’t the most original or exciting, and the creators know it. “Madagascar 3” dials up the pace to keep things interesting. Overall, it’s a good sequel, even if it might be too fast and frenetic for some. “Moonrise Kingdom” (PG-13) -- An oddly earnest 12-year-old boy (Jared Gilman) and an equally stiff young girl hatch a scheme to run away together and live off the land for a while.

The movie is a love story between two adolescents, but it’s not a movie most adolescents would enjoy. Director Wes Anderson’s trademark whimsical, awkward-but-plausible fingerprints are everywhere.

Anderson’s attention to detail is evident in every shot, and all of those details can actually pull you into this oddly appealing universe. “Chernobyl Diaries” (R) -- A gang of carefree young people decide to steer their vacation into the extreme.

DOG OF THE WEEK “That’s My Boy” (R) -- It appears that somebody in the movie-going population has gravely offended Adam Sandler. This latest R-rated gross-out comedy on the heels of “Jack and Jill” (the one where Sandler plays his female twin) is so lame that it seems like Sandler has a grudge against people who like comedy and haven’t liked him for the past decade or so. What’s worse, “That’s My Boy” is a disgustingly unfunny comedy that co-stars Andy Samberg, a rising star who has at least 10 years of being funny left before he morphs into the next Sandler.

Freeze-Ahead Fresh Apple Pie Filling It’s apple season! That means it’s time to make your way to a local apple orchard and harvest your own. Many orchards are jam-packed with additional things to do in the crisp fall air, such as hay rides, corn mazes and walking trails. You’ll be tempted with a never-ending array of treats, from apple cider to doughnuts and caramel apples. But no trip is complete without the experience of picking apples fresh off the tree with your kids and bringing them home to enjoy for snacking, applesauce-making and our family favorite, apple-pie baking. One year, when we came home with an extra basketful, I thought about how great it would be to preserve that fresh taste of our favorite local apples and enjoy them in a warm apple pie come wintertime. That’s when a friend reminded me of her novel idea of freezing fresh apple pie filling in the shape of a pie pan. A few months later, when chilly, snowy days were upon us and the family longed for the taste of fall, the frozen filling was placed in a pie shell and baked. While you peel, core and slice apples for a pie or crisp this week, prepare

some extras and freeze them. You’ll be glad you did. Here’s how to make ahead and freeze apple filling for a two-crust pie: 1. Set a 22-inch sheet of wide aluminum foil over the pie pan you will use for baking. Mold it in the pan at the center point of the foil. Set a 22-inch long piece of plastic wrap over the foil. 2. Peel, core and thinly slice 6 cups tart apples, and place them in a bowl. Toss with 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Stir in a mixture of 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. 3. Pour apple mixture onto the plastic wrap in pie pan. Press firmly and form a rounded top. Bring edges of plastic wrap together to seal. Repeat with foil. Freeze overnight. 4. Remove pie plate and set frozen pie-shaped apple filling “package” in a plastic freezer bag. Freeze up to four months. 5. To bake apple pie, preheat oven to

375 F. Set unwrapped frozen apple filling in a 9-inch pastry-lined pan. Do not let it thaw. Dot with 1 tablespoon unsalted butter. Place top crust over filling. Cut slits to vent, then seal and flute. Set on a foil-lined baking sheet. Allow 20-30 extra minutes of baking time, or until filling is bubbling through the slits. Tip: Cover loosely with foil if crust gets too brown before the filling bubbles. *** Donna Erickson’s award-winning series “Donna’s Day” is airing on public television nationwide.

Spinal Stenosis Causes Back Pain DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 84 years old, and I have spinal stenosis, which is causing me pain. I would like to know more about it. Will you furnish more information? -- T.P. ANSWER: Spinal stenosis is a common back problem of older people. It’s said that 20 percent of those older than 60 have it. The spinal cord is an offshoot of the brain, and it travels from the brain to the lower back. It’s about the width of your little finger and is extremely delicate. That’s why nature encased it in backbones -- vertebrae. Running through the backbones is a tunnel, the spinal canal that serves to protect the cord. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the tunnel. It happens mostly in the neck and lower-back regions. Thickened ligaments surrounding the spinal cord or arthritic changes of the backbones impinge on the spinal cord or the nerves that spring from it. Refresh Your Mind, Body and Spirit

When the process occurs in the back, pain is felt there and often in the buttocks or thighs. The pain worsens if a person stands for too long. People can ease the pain by bending forward at the waist or by sitting down. Bending opens the tunnel to give the spinal cord some breathing room. The amount of bend that works is the amount of bend a person assumes when pushing a shopping cart. Have you tried Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain? It’s safe when used as directed on the label. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve) also are helpful. They can cause stomach upset and stomach bleeding, so follow directions given for their use. Hot packs or cold packs might work. Try both, and see if either gets the job done. At night, lying on your side in bed with a pillow between your knees lessens pain. A program of physical therapy might help you turn the corner. Ask your doctor for a referral. And finally, the opinion of a back surgeon will let you know if any surgical technique can bring you relief. The booklet on back pain offers other advice for the many conditions causing back pain.

Contributing cause: surgical shock.” She died in 1931 at the young age of 33. What does all this mean? -- J.F. ANSWER: Hemorrhage is massive bleeding. She bled from her uterus either during an operation or from a tumor, a twisted fibroid or an infection. Surgical shock isn’t a term used these days. Shock means that the bleeding was so great, her blood pressure dropped. Not enough blood could circulate to her organs, including her brain and heart. In those days, such a catastrophe almost always resulted in death. I’m guessing at the meaning of surgical shock. I take it to mean that the bleeding occurred during surgery. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Potato Skins Celebrate football season with our fully loaded skins. They weigh in at just 120 calories per serving versus the classic’s 350, and have one-fifth the saturated fat. Our secret: lighter ingredients (reducedfat sour cream, Pecorino cheese) that pack a lot of flavor. Touchdown! 4 large (12 ounces each) baking (russet) potatoes, well scrubbed 4 slices center-cut bacon 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Salt Pepper 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream 1 ounce Pecorino Romano cheese, finely grated 1 large (10- to 12-ounce) tomato, finely chopped 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives 1. Preheat oven to 400 F. 2. With fork, pierce each potato 3 times. Place potatoes on parchment paper. Microwave on High 8 minutes. Turn over; microwave on High 10 minutes longer or until tender. Cover with kitchen towel; let cool. 3. Meanwhile, in 18-by-12-inch jelly-roll pan, arrange bacon in single layer. Roast 10 to 12 minutes or until browned and crisp. Drain on paper towels. When cool, crumble. Discard fat from pan but do not wipe clean; set pan aside. Reset oven to 475 F.

4. Cut each potato in quarters lengthwise. With spoon, scoop potato from skins, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato with skin and being careful not to break through skin. Reserve cooked potato for another use. 5. Arrange skins, skin side up, in single layer on reserved pan. Brush with oil; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper. 6. Roast 13 to 15 minutes or until browned and crisp. Transfer, skin sides down, to serving plate. 7. To assemble, spread 1 teaspoon sour cream on each skin. Top with cheese, tomato, bacon and chives.

PHOTO: Kristen Wiig HOLLYWOOD -- The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, which awards the Oscars each year, sent shock waves throughout Hollywood when it switched from announcing the Oscar nominations on Jan. 15 (last year) to Jan. 10 (this year). For years, the Golden Globes have capitalized on giving out their awards earlier, potentially influencing Academy voters. This year, the Golden Globes will air three days after the Oscar nominations, on Jan. 13. All the other award shows that beat out the Oscars are changing their dates to be relevant, if they can. There’s no telling how the new date will impact big films such as “The Hobbit” (Dec. 14) and “Les Miz” (Dec. 25) in impressing voters. Why did the Academy switch the dates? In a word: purity! It’s been trying for years to keep studios and producers from waging massive ad campaigns to influence voters. *** Now we go from the biggest event in films to the littlest event in television -- Honey Boo Boo. While many viewers thought Honey and her family were just a bunch of country bumpkins, they were quietly pull8506 - 19th Avenue

ing in $4,000 an episode. Now that they’re an unqualified hit ... with higher ratings than the Republican Convention, they’re demanding a pay raise to $10,000 an episode to sign for season 2. More redneck conservatives were watching them than the convention? *** Kristen Wiig, who left “Saturday Night Live” on the heels of her “Bridesmaids” success, has taken The Toronto Film Festival by storm with her new movie “Imogene,” co-starring with Annette Bening, “Glee’s” Darren Criss and Matt Dillon. Wiig plays a screenwriter who fakes a suicide to get her boyfriend back, but ends up with her gambling-addicted mother instead. The film has been picked up by Lionsgate for distribution. *** Last year’s best picture winner, “The Artist,” was a black-and-white film that enabled a French filmmaker to bridge the language gap, effortlessly. You’d have thought there would’ve been a flood of silent B&W films -- but nothing until now! Spanish writer-director Pablo Berger screened his new B&W silent film, “Blancanieves,” at The Toronto Film Festival. Already this year we’ve had

“Mirror, Mirror” and “Snow White and The Huntsman,” and now there’s Berger’s re-imagining of the famous Grimm fairy tale. The film, set in Spain, centers around a bullfighter’s daughter, seven bullfighting dwarves and her wicked stepmother, who is more Norma Desmond from “Sunset Boulevard” than a witch, and ends more like “Sleeping Beauty” than “Snow White.” Let’s face it, any film with seven bullfighting dwarfs and a Norma Desmond-ish villainess has got to be as much fun as 30 clowns popping out of a Volkswagen!

By Samantha Mazzotta Painting Tips Q: I’m painting my apartment next week, the first time I’ve ever done this. Do you have any painting tips? -- Lana, Columbus, Ga. A: Tons of tips, but limited space to list them all, unfortunately! First-timers often are daunted by the amount of paint and paint products to choose from, conflicting instructions from various sources, and sometimes a lack of helpful information from home-improvement store paint sections. Others feel it’s simple enough to just buy a bunch of paint and brushes and just go for it. The reality falls somewhere in between. Preparation is the most important rule to follow, however. You’ll want to prepare the walls (and presumably trim) in the apartment for painting. You’ll need to figure out not just what

color paint to use, but how much of it to buy, and if the colors even work the way you think they will. Here are a few tips to get you started: --Buy sample sizes of paint colors you’re interested in, and paint a stripe of each in an inconspicuous section of the wall. Paint looks different when wet and when dry. --How much paint should you buy? A gallon of latex paint covers 350 square feet. Measure the length of each wall and add the figures together. Measure the height of the room from floor to ceiling. Multiply the first number by the height of the room and you’ll have your square footage. --Wash all surfaces to be painted with a damp sponge soaked in a soap and water solution and then squeezed to remove most of the water. Let the surfaces dry for about a half-day, longer if it’s rainy or humid. --Remove protruding nails and patch nail holes and small (less than 1/2 inch) dents and holes with spackling compound. Once it’s dry, sand the compound lightly and wipe with a damp sponge to remove dust. --Mask off areas you don’t want to paint using blue painter’s tape, which comes off more easily than masking tape. --Covering a dark wall with a lighter paint? Prime the wall first with a primer that is close to or matches the color of the new paint.

--Ditto for covering one type of paint, such as an oil-based paint, with a different type, such as latex paint. A primer coat will keep your new paint from bubbling, cracking or peeling. --Make sure the area being painted is well ventilated; additionally, wear a filter mask (not a dust mask) to reduce inhalation of paint fumes. HOME TIP: Paint stores will pre-mix your paint after you purchase it, saving a lot of time, but you still should stir the paint for a few seconds immediately before beginning to paint with it.

PHOTO CREDIT: Photo provided by Diva Productions, Inc. for Vitacost.com. A Breakfast Worth Getting Up For Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and often the most neglected. It’s important that you eat a nutritious morning meal no later than an hour after waking up. A healthy breakfast allows the mind and body to work well throughout the day. Breakfast also is important for creating healthy eating habits, general health, weight control, greater concentration and productivity, and maintaining hormone levels and blood sugar. Breakfast will speed up metabolism and help you burn more calories throughout the day. Most people who skip breakfast eat more during the day. If you start the day with an empty stomach, blood-sugar levels will be lower. As a result, during the day you’ll need “instant” sugar, usually a doughnut, chocolate, pasta or other unhealthy choice. How do you find the time to prepare and eat breakfast every morning? Try getting up 15 minutes earlier. Or, prepare your breakfast the night before! This recipe for Baked Banana Oatmeal with Walnuts and Raisins is a healthy and delicious solution to your morning breakfast dilemma. Best of all, it keeps well when refrigerated and can be packaged in re-sealable containers and re-heated at work, if necessary. BAKED BANANA OATMEAL WITH WALNUTS AND RAISINS

2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon of unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, lightly toasted, divided 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/4 cup maple syrup or maple-flavored agave syrup 1 cup milk, organic soymilk, or almond milk 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced 1/2inch thick 1 cup raisins, cranberries or craisins 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 1/2 cups milk, organic soymilk or almond milk 1. Preheat oven to 375 F. 2. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish with 1 teaspoon of butter or oil. In a medium bowl, combine rolled oats, half of the nuts, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar. Stir with a fork to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the maple or agave syrup, 1 cup milk, egg, butter or oil, and vanilla. 3. Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the raisins or

cranberries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. 4. Pour liquid ingredients evenly over the oats. Sprinkle remaining nuts and berries over top. Bake 35-40 minutes, until top is browned and oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. 5. Combine cinnamon with 1 1/2 cups milk. Heat until warm, about 2 minutes. Serve oatmeal topped with warm cinnamon-almond milk. Cover and refrigerate leftover oatmeal. 6. To reheat, place a serving of the oatmeal into a bowl. Mix cinnamon with almond milk and pour it over oatmeal. Heat oatmeal and milk on high in the microwave until the oatmeal and milk are warm, about 2 to 3 minutes.

dog. Dogs can’t fake it! Made a believer out of me! -- Mrs. J., via email

Acupuncture Helps Perk Up Old Dog DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I’m writing in response to your column on alternative treatments for pets. A vet I used to work for studied acupuncture for pets. She had an old dog with arthritis, and he was really grumpy because he was in so much pain. The vet did acupuncture on him, and within a few weeks he was running around and playing with the puppies. Total change in that

DEAR MRS. J: Thank you for the anecdote! While studies about the effectiveness of acupuncture and other alternative treatments -- such as homeopathy, reiki, massage and aromatherapy -- are still being done, many pet owners swear by these treatments and say that their pets’ lives have been profoundly changed for the better. Do they really work? I don’t know. However, speaking with a medical doctor a few years ago about alternative treatments, she said that since most alternative treatments have few-to-no side effects, and her (human) patients felt better after having them, she felt that they were a positive benefit that could boost the effectiveness of more conventional Western medicine. This idea could hold true for treatment of pets, as well. I think it’s

important to consult your pet’s veterinarian for any illness or injury -physical or emotional -- and make sure your pet gets conventional treatment. But alternative therapies can provide additional benefits. Readers, do you have a story about a pet that was helped through alternative treatment? Let me know! Send your questions or tips to ask@ pawscorner.com, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
