As a trained librarian, one of her underlying principles in recording her family research was to ensure that all lineages were supported by documentary evidence. This principle led her to the study of DNA in establishing family relationships. Submitting DNA samples for her brother for Y-chromosome values and DNA for herself to establish mitochondrial values led to results that helped establish family relationships. Attend this cutting-edge program at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 6 at the Genealogy Library, 302 E. Bonita St., Payson.

NEW SHIPS AND RIVERBOATS FOR 2014 Even though the cruise lines are selling cruises at some of the lowest rates in years, new vessels are coming out of the builders’ yards to crowd the seas with more new ships. Keep in mind that cruise lines must order new ships at least three to four years ahead of completion. Actually, only a modest number of new oceangoing ships are coming into the market, while riverboat building shows no sign of slowing down. There are an amazing 34 new riverboats on the way, including 16 new riverboats for Viking River Cruises alone. KEN BROOKS It seems that after the public has experienced several ocean cruise ships they are ready for the riverboat experience. I hope there will be enough river docking space available at the end of this year. Actually, they often tie alongside one another at some of the busy ports of call. And riverboat cruising is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable types of vacations you can experience. As to the new oceangoing cruise ships entering the market this year we will begin with Norwegian Cruise Lines’ new Getaway, which is a twin to the Breakaway that is based in New York. The Getaway features the same bells and whistles as its sister with a multistory sports complex, complete with ropes course, rock-climbing wall and zip line; outdoor promenade for dining and drinks; and more than 20 restaurants and bars. The 146,000-ton, 4,028-passenger ship will sail year-round from Miami, and its newto-the-line features include tropical-inspired artwork and some Miami-themed public spaces like the Tropical Room, which will capture Miami Beach of the ’40s and ’50s. There will be a Flamingo Bar and Grill, a Latin-style restaurant; Sunset Bar, inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s home in Key West; and Sugarcane Bar, an island-themed Tiki Bar. Pop artist David “LEBO” Le Batard designed the hull artwork, which features mermaids and pelicans. The “Illusionarium” — a special-effects magic show and dining experience — is also new to the line, replacing the “Cirque Dreams and Dinner Jungle Fantasy” onboard Breakaway. There are more exciting experiences that await your cruising pleasure onboard. It will cruise the Eastern Caribbean. Then, there is the new Regal Princess, which will be a twin sister to the Royal Princess, which launched last year. You can expect such features as the SeaWalk, a cantilevered glass-enclosed walkway that will extend 28 feet beyond the ship’s edge and 128 feet over the water; a series of private, for-fee poolside cabanas; an adults-only pool; a huge pastry shop; and the Princess Live television studio. The Regal Princess is 141,000 tons and will carry 3,600 passengers. Its atrium is called the Piazza and will be ideal for people watching or enjoying a cup of coffee and ocean views. Regal Princess will add a couple of new features, including an aft pool and a promenade deck

that will allow passengers to walk the length of the ship. All outside cabins will feature balconies, which means 80 percent of the ship’s accommodations will have outdoor spaces. It will cruise the Mediterranean and Eastern Caribbean. Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’ new Quantum class will present its first newbuild since 2010 with the launches of Quantum of the Seas in fall 2014 and Anthem of the Seas in 2015. This debut will feature a few “WOW” features including the first skydiving simulator at sea; bumper cars; and the North Star, a glass capsule that can rise 300 feet above the sea level and provide 360degree views over the sides of the ship. The vessel will feature 270º — a multilevel entertainment area with floor-to-ceiling windows that will house a gourmet marketplace, library and workshop. At night, entertainment will be the name of the game, with a combination of live and digital performances, including aerialists and TV screens that move with the aid of robotic arms. The cabins have been changed, adding options like solo staterooms and inside cabins that feature virtual balconies — essentially floor-to-ceiling LCD TV screens. The cabins will be nine percent larger than those on the lines’ Oasis class ships. The first ship launched will be deployed in the Bahamas and Caribbean. The Pearl Mist will be the first ship for the new Pearl Seas Cruises unveiling its small luxury ship. The American company will deploy the ship for some fascinating itineraries through New England, Canada and the Great Lakes before making its way to the Caribbean. The cabins will be larger than many, with the smallest being 300 square feet. All cabins feature private balconies, flat-screen TV, DVD players and wireless Internet access. The owners promise onboard enrichment and cuisine prepared to match the regions for each itinerary. The ship also includes a spa, fitness center, lounges and a

theatre. It will cruise New England, Canada, Great Lakes and the Caribbean. The crew and officers will be American. TUI Cruises is a German company that soon will unveil its latest ship, Mein Schiff 3. I think that translates to My Ship 3. The ship will be 99,000 gross tons and carry 2,506 passengers. The company is a joint venture with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. More than 80 percent of the cabins will feature balconies. German will be the first language spoken, followed by English. It will be deployed in the Mediterranean. Another large new ship will be the Costa Diadema which will begin service in October. It will be the largest ship in the Costa fleet and carry 3,724 passengers. It is 132,000 tons and will feature a large outdoor promenade, new-to-the-line bars and restaurants and multifunctional room with interactive games. The former Carnival Cruises interior decorator, Joe Farcus is the decorator for Costa Deadema, so expect loud and garish designs all about the ship. Some like it — I don’t. The ship will include a 4D Cinema, Grand Prix simulator, pool movie screen, three pools, 83,000 square-foot spa and an outdoor jogging track. It will cruise the Mediterranean. Now, for the explosion of river ships in Europe. There will be the Viking Alsvin, Bestla, Buri, Delling, Eistla, Gullveig, Heimdal, Hermod, Hlin, Idi, Ingvi, Kara, Kfasir, Lif, Hemming the Viking Togil and they are all due for passenger service by March of this year. In all, there will be 14 new Longship-class boats sailing on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Seine and Rhone, along with new itineraries on the rivers in France’s Bordeaux region. The Line is debuting two new boats on Portugal’s Douro River this year, as well. Each Longship carries 190 passengers and offers five classes of cabins. Each suite features two rooms with a French balcony off the bedroom and a full balcony off the living

room. Aboard, passengers can enjoy the Aquavit Terrace, an indoor-outdoor space with retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors. These vessels will also feature a swimming pool. We have discussed in the column several times the pluses of river cruising, especially in Europe. The vessels are fully booked early each year, but it seems with so many new boats coming into service there may be room for us. AMAWaterways will be placing several new river boats into service this year and will feature larger cabins than usual. The new ones will have a heated pool with a swim-up bar on the top deck. They cruise the Rhine and Danube. Emerald Waterways’ twin sisters Emerald Star and Emerald Sky will cruise the Rhine, Main, Danube and Mosselle. These new boats are 443 feet long and will feature two-week itineraries. These lovely boats have swimming pools that are heated and the cabins will be larger than those found on many riverboats. The William Shakespeare will cruise both Europe and on the Mekong River in Southeast Asia. It is new, nicely decorated and features three decks with tropical hardwoods. Several riverboats are coming into service to visit Asia and the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. Some former service men want to return to Vietnam and witness the modern changes since they served there. The new ships will be available shortly, along with those that are already plying the seas loaded with vacationers. We just returned from a two-week Caribbean cruise in the new MSC Divina that cruises out of Miami, which we reviewed recently. It seems the newer ships with all the many new attractions onboard are becoming a hit with the newer cruise passenger. For me, just give me a fine, luxury ship with a good-size room and balcony and delicious food and I am a happy camper.




Country-style pork ribs and mojo; dips for game day The aromatic flavors and wholesome ingredients found in comfort food can take us back to another place in time — a place that conjures up happy, feel-good memories, along with the completely satisfied feeling that comes after enjoying a hearty meal. But those same flavors and ingredients can also serve as a foundation for creating new, inspiring twists on traditional dishes from the past. For James Beard Award winner, author and chef, Michelle Bernstein, the traditional dishes she remembers most vividly from her childhood include traditional American-style barbecue pork ribs and pork marinated in mojo — a simple, Latin-influenced sauce that varies in spiciness and typically includes citrus, garlic and cumin. To honor these two favorite recipes from her past, chef Bernstein created a new, flavor-filled recipe that infuses classic country-style pork ribs with a zesty, savory mojo sauce. “I knew there couldn’t be anything more perfect than marinating pork ribs in mojo — not just because the ingredients remind me of my heritage, but because ribs are so easy to make and so great to pair with different flavors,” said chef Bernstein. “After marinating them in the mojo sauce and grilling them for about 15 minutes, you’ll have incredibly tasty, tender and juicy ribs the whole family will love — and probably ask for again and again.”

COUNTRY-STYLE PORK RIBS WITH MOJO Recipe provided by Michelle Bernstein Makes 6 servings; preparation time: 20 minutes, plus overnight marinate; cooking time: 25 minutes 12 cloves garlic, smashed About 2/3 cup canola oil 3 oranges 4 limes 3 tablespoons adobo sauce, from a can of chipotles in adobo 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

SIMPLE, TASTY TAKES ON ENTERTAINING WITH SEAFOOD Nothing pairs better with cool, crisp weather than warm, home-cooked comfort food. Whether you’re searching for a dish for a get-together to watch the game, a dinner party or just a relaxing night at home, look no further than the decadence of perfectly-prepared shrimp. ADAPTABILITY MEETS DELICIOUSNESS

Due to its versatility, shrimp is a top protein choice among many chefs. Shrimp can be served at any time of the day, from shrimp and grits at breakfast to shrimp salads at lunch, or simple boiled shrimp as a delectably light hors d’oeuvre. It can also be an elegant addition to Italian dishes, Mexican recipes and delicatessen favorites, just to name a few. Wild-caught Gulf of Mexico shrimp, in particular, has an exceptionally rich flavor profile due to the warm, nutrientdense water in which it was caught. Nothing packs a mouthful of savory flavor like fresh, Gulf shrimp. ALL THE FLAVOR, NONE OF THE FAT

Country-Style Pork Ribs with Mojo 3 tablespoons olive oil Leaves from 4 sprigs thyme 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander 2 pounds pork country-style ribs In small saucepan over medium heat, combine garlic and enough canola oil to barely cover it. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until garlic is tender and lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Strain and set the garlic aside. Zest oranges and set zest aside. Juice oranges and limes. In jar of a blender, combine orange juice, lime juice, garlic, adobo sauce, brown sugar, olive oil, thyme, cumin, pepper and coriander and process

to puree. Stir in zest. Transfer to large resealable bag and add pork. Set aside in refrigerator overnight. Prepare grill to medium heat and lightly oil grate. Remove pork from marinade and grill, turning occasionally, until ribs are tender. Remove ribs from grill and let rest 3 minutes. SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Stay in the Caribbean style and serve these ribs with grilled plantains or coconut rice. If you like, you can use the mojo marinade on other cuts of pork as well — try it with roasts, chops and tenderloins. Source: National Pork Board

An important part of a healthful diet, shrimp contains high-quality protein and a variety of essential nutrients, such as vitamins B-6 and B-12. Additionally, it is among the few natural sources of vitamin D. While low in saturated fat, shrimp offers healthy omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease. PREPARING THE PERFECT SHRIMP

For many home chefs, the idea of preparing seafood can be an intimidating process. Because they cook very quickly, the biggest mistake many people make while preparing shrimp is overcooking. But, with a little know-how, preparing a delightful shrimp dish is quite simple. Here’s a fool-proof plan for preparing CONTINUED ON PAGE 5



This entry in Jack Ryan series missing something Well-known Shakespearian actor Kenneth Branagh also directs films. Who knew? Not me. It turns out that he has directed plenty of movies, most in the serious art category. He also directed the 2011 mega-hit “Thor,” a film that I did not review well. Wise, wealthy men somehow selected him to direct “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” a kind of prequel and kind of an update/revamp of the famous Jack Ryan franchise based on the novels by Tom Clancy. Maybe fast-paced thrillers are not Branagh’s cup of tea. I have to put this three saw blade not-such-a-thriller just ahead of the uninspired “Sum of All Fears” in the Ryan films. This one feels like a paint-bynumbers landscape put on celluloid, a film with all of the components of a film wor-

Writers, please give us a disaster we can believe in. We want an earth-crushing asteroid or a terrorist with an Abomb. We don’t want some fancy, not believable paper shuffling that leads to an economic meltdown. Bond prices will go down! Be still my heart. But I do love Jack Ryan and hope Chris Pine will have a great career. The producers spent a modest $60 million or so to make the film, which has already raked in about $40 million. Perhaps the PG-13 rated one-hour-and-40-minute film will have a positive return. Kenneth Branagh has now directed a dozen films. Many of his films are versions of works by Shakespeare. If you like that sort of thing, I highly recommend his “Henry V” of 1989. He directs himself in the title role. Flawlessly.

When family and friends gather together to watch the final game of the professional football season, loading up the table with a variety of easy-to-grab, flavorful appetizers is a winning plan. After all, casual food and good times are what game day is all about. In the world of appetizers, dip is king. From savory to sweet, this simple tailgating party addition can take on flavors that span the globe, or that are as American and as beloved as the gridiron game itself. • Keep it light — Be sure to have lots of fresh, crunchy vegetables on hand. Start with your standard dippers — like sliced carrots, broccoli and cucumbers — or score big with unique vegetable dipper options — like snap peas, asparagus spears and radishes. This recipe for Cucumber Cups creates simple and crunchy bite-sized noshes with a delicious dip of Sabra Hummus in the center. For more great game day recipes, visit • Serve Delightful Dippers — Potato and tortilla chips go hand-in-hand with football festivities, but beyond these standards is a whole world of other dipping options. For a Mediterranean touch, go with flatbread, pita bread or pita chips. Instead of plain old butter rounds,

opt for more texture with multi-grain crackers that include raw flax, chia or sesame seeds. Or, serve up a warm batch of buffalo wings with this smoky and spicy recipe for Hummus Buffalo Wing Dip. • Offer Variety — A large spread of dippers calls for a wide assortment of scrumptious dips. As an alternative to sour cream or cheese-based dips — which are loaded with fat, preservatives and sodium — serve up an assortment of delicious Sabra Hummus. Hummus offers up the protein, iron and fiber that other dips lack. Incorporate a few of these dip tips into your game day strategy and watch as fans huddle up to fill their plates.

Bird watchers around the world needed Rim Country residents get on board. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, bird watchers from more than 100 countries are expected to participate in the 17th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), being held Feb. 14-17, 2014. Anyone anywhere in the world can count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and enter their sightings at The information gathered by tens of thousands of volunteers helps track the health of bird populations at a scale that would not otherwise be possible. The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society with partner Bird Studies Canada. “People who care about birds

can change the world,” said Audubon chief scientist Gary Langham. “Technology has made it possible for people everywhere to unite around a shared love of birds and a commitment to protecting them.” In North America, GBBC participants will add their data to help define the magnitude of a dramatic irruption of magnificent snowy owls. Bird watchers will also be on the lookout for the invasive Eurasian collared-dove to see if it has expanded its range again. GBBC observations may help show whether or not numbers of American crows will continue to rebound after being hit hard by the West Nile virus and whether more insect-eating species are showing up in new areas, possibly because of changing climate. Last year’s Great Backyard Bird Count shattered records after going global for the first time, thanks to integration with the eBird online checklist proCONTINUED ON PAGE 7

More than 34.5 million birds and 3,610 species were recorded — nearly one-third of the world’s total bird species documented in just four days. “This is a milestone for citizen science in so many respects — number of species, diversity of countries involved, total participants, and number of individual birds recorded. We hope this is just the start of something far larger, engaging the whole world in creating a detailed annual snapshot of how all our planet’s birds are faring as the years go by,” said Cornell Lab director Dr. John Fitzpatrick. “Canadian participation in the Great Backyard Bird Count has increased tremendously in recent years, and it’s wonderful to see this program growing globally,” said Bird Studies Canada President Dr. George Finney. “The count is introducing unprecedented numbers of people to the exciting field of bird watching.” The Great Backyard Bird Count is a great way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with nature and make a difference for birds. It’s free and easy. To learn more about how to join the count visit The Great Backyard Bird Count is made possible in part by sponsor Wild Birds Unlimited. Rim Country bird watchers recently completed another count program: the Payson Christmas Bird Count. Since 1900, the National Audubon Society has conducted bird counts throughout North America. Local birding enthusiasts conducted their 10th annual count on Jan. 4,

according to Dave Hallock in a special report to the Roundup. About 18 participants headed out into the field with spring-like weather, which contributed to 95 species being observed, up 10 from last year. Counters tallied 4,963 birds, slightly lower than last year, Hallock said. The count is a census of the birds found during a 24-hour period in a designated circle 15 miles in diameter. The Payson count circle is centered a little northwest of town. It runs north to the Control Road and Whispering Pines, east just past Diamond Point Shadows, south to just below Oxbow Hill, and west to Tonto Natural Bridge. The national project included over 2,000 counts held between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5. Full results of the Payson count can be viewed on the Audubon Web site (http://birds.audubon .org/christmasbird-count/). Arizona is an especially critical site for the census since most of the songbirds that summer throughout North America migrate through Arizona. The species tally differs every year. In some respects it is similar to the game “musical chairs,” with different species moving through the area each year. First is a movement of birds coming south for the winter often influenced by the severity of weather. Next, local species shift positions, such as Anna’s hummingbirds and cardinals, moving down into the lower and warmer basins below Payson. Other species may move up from those basins during periods of nice weather. Count day is when the music stops and there is a slightly different mix of birds each year, Hallock said. Over the past decade, a total of 130 species have been observed. A shifting group of 60 species shows up in some years, but not others.

“This year we had high numbers of berry-eating birds, including American robins, Western bluebirds, mountain bluebirds, Townsend solitaires, spotted towhees, and phainopeplas. They were attracted to the abundant berry crop on one-seed junipers, particularly on the lower slopes of the count area below Oxbow Estates and along the road to Doll Baby,” Hallock said. Watchers also recorded above-average numbers for northern flickers, Say’s phoebes, Steller’s jays, American crows, and mountain chickadees. However, the count revealed lower-than-normal totals for Canada goose, mallard, American wigeon, Gambel’s quail, bushtit, and most sparrows. Some raptors made a good showing, including five bald and two golden eagles. Other birds-of-prey included Cooper’s hawk, red-tailed hawk, American kestrel, and merlin. Some of the more rare finds included northern saw-whet owl, Cassin’s kingbird and Eastern bluebird. Cassin’s kingbird is common in the Payson area during the summer and generally winters in Mexico and farther south. But winter sightings in Arizona have been on the increase in recent years. Due to the stretch of mild weather preceding the count, higher than normal numbers of wintering desert birds made their way up into the count area, including Say’s phoebe, verdin, cactus wren, sage and crissal thrashers, canyon and Abert’s towhees, and rufous-crowned sparrows. Participants in the count were Kathe Anderson, Diane Brown, Tom Conlin, Gregg Dunn, Dave Hallock, Helen Hassemer, Rick Heffernon, Brian Ison, Gordon Karre, Grace Knowles, Lois Lorenz, Beverly Malmberg, Sue Myers, Peggy Newman, Sue Schuett, Chip Steele, Diane Steele and Joanne Travis.

CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT REVEALED: • Birds are not climate skeptics, having spoken with their wings. Many birds have shifted their ranges northward and inland, according to an analysis of 40 years of data. The systematic shift in the range of many birds appears to have come in response to a gradual rise in average temperatures. • The bald eagle is back; the Endangered Species Act works. The national tally from the bird count helped document the recovery of the national bird from near extinction. Based in part on the Christmas Bird Count data, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed the bald eagle from the endangered species list. The Payson tally demonstrated the rise in the number of bald eagles locally as well. • Many of America’s most familiar and beloved birds are in serious decline. The annual surveys have documented the alarming decline in 20 once-common bird species. Sharply affected birds include the northern bobwhite, evening grosbeak, northern pintail, greater scaup, Boreal chickadee, eastern meadowlark, common tern, loggerhead shrike, field sparrow, grasshopper sparrow, snow bunting, black-throated sparrow, lark sparrow, common grackle, American bittern, whip-poor-willo, horned lark, little blue heron and ruffled grouse. • Eurasian collared-doves invaded America. This small dove showed up in North America in 1988 and has expanded its range steadily, although it has not yet reached Arizona. The warmer winters enable the coldsensitive doves to spread farther and farther north. • Peregrine falcons are no longer in trouble. The Christmas Bird Counts played a key role in documenting the recovery of the fastest birds on the planet. Like bald eagles, they were nearly exterminated. • Sage-grouse are in deep trouble. The bird count has documented the steady decline of the sage-grouse, one of 59 continental and 39 Hawaiian birds on the “red list” based on population declines. The annual survey plays a key role in determining population trends — and can provide early warning of the need to shift a species to the Endangered Species List. The sage-grouse has been decimated by drought and warming trends, together with the impact of cattle grazing. • More and more hummingbirds are staying in the USA and Canada for winter, especially in Arizona — which has more species of hummingbirds than any other state. Most hummingbird species live in the tropics and only a handful migrate to North America.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Doing something nice for others is typical of the generous Arian. But be prepared for some jealous types who might try to question one of your more recent acts of kindness. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re eager to take on new responsibilities. But before you do, you might want to check out exactly what would be required of you so that you don’t face any “surprises” later. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It might be best to put off an important decision until a fluctuating situation becomes more stable. Recently received news could help resolve a long-standing family matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you still have a problem getting that information gap closed, you might consider asking a higher authority to resolve the matter, leaving you free to move on to another project. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A family matter needs to be dealt with at the start of the week. Once it’s resolved, the Big Cat can devote more attention to that new opportunity that seems to hold so much potential. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Pay attention to those niggling doubts. They could be warning you not to make any major decisions until you’ve checked them out — especially where money matters might be involved. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A business venture might need more of your attention than you are able to provide. Consider asking a trusted friend or family member to help you work through this time crunch. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A more-positive aspect helps you get a clearer focus on how to handle your time so that you can deal with several responsibilities that are just now showing up on your schedule. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A very close friend (you know who that is!) has advice that could help you work through a confusing situation. So put your pride aside and ask for it. You’ll be glad you did. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A workplace situation could turn a bit tense. The best way to handle it is to confront it and deal with it openly. Doing so can help reveal the underlying reasons for the problem. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A colleague’s remarks appear to be especially cutting. But don’t waste your time or your energy trying to deal with the situation. You have more important things to do. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Support for your work comes as a surprise from someone you thought was critical or, at least, indifferent. Your spouse or partner has big plans for the weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: Your spiritual strength often acts as an inspiration to help others make decisions about their lives. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Dust mites can stir up allergies BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. ©2014 NORTH AMERICA SYND.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What’s all this about dust mites? Do they carry disease? How do we kill them? A baseball bat? — R.H. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: About dust mites — I am getting nowhere with them because they are practically invisible. They crawl in and out of my mouth and on my face when I am in bed. I have suffered too long with them. — P.B. ANSWER: Dust mites are hardly visible; they’re smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. They don’t transmit diseases, but they can create trouble for those who are allergic to them or their waste material. The mite skeleton and waste products can provoke asthma, skin itching, eye itching, sneezing and dripping nose. Most people, however, live in blissful ignorance of the mites. They have no symptoms. Dust mites don’t bite. They feed on dead skin cells, mostly cells that have fallen off the body. They don’t enter the mouth. You really can’t tell they’re around. They like living in bedrooms — in mattresses and bedding, including blankets — upholstered furniture and carpets. They can take up life in stuffed animals. Allow only washable stuffed toys into a bedroom. They prefer a warm, humid environment, a preference that can be used to evict them. Keep the bedroom cool and dry with a dehumidifier, an air conditioner or both. The humidity should be less than 50 percent. Mites dehydrate at that humidity. Wash all bedding weekly. Vacuum mattresses and pillows. Encase them in coverings specially made from cotton, polyester or plastic. Mites don’t disappear overnight. The battle against them has to go on for months and months. A victory isn’t total elimination, but a reduction in their population. If after all these measures a person still suffers allergic symptoms, visit an allergist for desensitization therapy. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I read that more heart attacks occur in winter than in summer. Why? If you dress warmly, does that protect you? — N.C. ANSWER: Cold weather is a stress on the body and the heart. The heart has to work harder to keep the body warm by pumping more blood than it ordinarily does. That extra effort is too much for hearts not in the best of shape. Dressing warmly lessens the risk. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Both my sister and I take Synthroid. My doctor insists that I take it first thing in the morning, before I have had anything to eat. He also has told me not to eat for 30 to 60 minutes after taking the tablet. My sister didn’t get any similar instructions. She takes hers at noon with lunch. Who’s right? — L.C. ANSWER: It’s best to take Synthroid, the mostoften-prescribed thyroid hormone preparation, on an empty stomach and to wait at least 30 minutes before taking any food. I have to assume that your sister’s doctor is checking her thyroid hormone levels from time to time. If they’re OK, she’s OK and her medicinetaking is OK. If she has to increase her dose of the medicine because of low blood levels, then she should adopt your method of taking Synthroid.
