“You won’t believe on All Hallow Eve, What lots of fun we can make, With apples to bob, And nuts on the hob, And a ring-and-thimble cake.� – Carolyn Wells

W

ith the onset of fall last month on Sept. 22, minds often wander to all things autumnal. Apples often rank right up there with pumpkins, falling leaves, cool weather and holidays that are right around the corner. And about 25 percent of an apple’s volume is air, which makes them oat‌and makes it easier to bob for them this time of year. But did you know that October is National Apple Month?

APPLES, APPLES, EVERYWHERE!!

National Apple Week was founded 1904 and later expanded to encompass the entire month of October. Naturally, the purpose is to boost apple awareness and hopefully bolster the apple industry. But that still begs the question: What is so great about the apple?

Evidence has shown that apples were discovered as suitable for human consumption as far back as 6,500 B.C. and possibly even earlier. The apple tree is said to have originated somewhere between the Caspian and Black Seas.

Apples were an integral part of life in the Persian Empire, grown not only for their delicious taste but also for their beauty. The Greeks followed suit after acquiring dominance over the Persians; and following that, the Romans discovered their appeal. Cultivating them became as much an art as a science.

AN APPLE BY ANY OTHER NAME IS…A ROSE? Apples are actually a member of the rose family and sizes range from a little bigger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit, depending on the variety. There are 7,500 varieties grown globally and about 2,500 of those are grown in the U.S.

Raising apples hit a downslope along with the decline of the Roman Empire, only to be rekindled during the Italian Renaissance in the fifteenth century. England and France got on board with the Italians; and early settlers coming to the Americas brought their own varieties of apples. Until then, the Americas only had crab apples.

With such a large variety of types, there are bound to be differences to make each type stand out from the others. Aftertaste happens to be one such difference. Some have the aftertaste of pears, citrus, cloves, cinnamon, coconut, strawberries, grapes or pineapple. It’s no wonder the apple is so versatile for cooking.

LEGEND HAS IT…

time, it also appears in many different religious and folklore stories. In the Bible, the apple appears several times. Probably the most notable is the story of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve are the first man and woman that God created. He gave them a home in the Garden of Eden where they could eat whatever they wanted as long as it wasn’t apples from the Tree of Knowledge. However, Eve is tempted by a serpent to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, hearing that it will make her more like God. She does, then gives the apple to Adam who also eats the fruit. For disobeying God, the pair is exiled from the Garden, never to return. In fact, the term Adam’s Apple refers to the lump in a man’s throat, said to be a piece of the apple he ate from the tree of Knowledge. The apple also shows up in mythology. It symbolizes desire and temptation, probably stemming from stories about Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and marriage, who is often depicted with an apple in her hand. Atalanta was

Diced pork and Matian apples was the oldest recipe on record containing the apple. It dates back to the third century, although it is said to have come from the mind of a man named Apicius, who lived 200 years prior to that.

forced to marry once she was beaten by Hippomenes in a footrace, thanks to Aphrodite’s help. The goddess supplied Hippomenes with three golden apples, which he used to distract Atalanta by throwing them in her path whenever she took the lead.

THE STORY OF JOHNNY APPLESEED More recently is the legend of Johnny Appleseed. In reality, this man’s name was John Chapman from Leominster, Mass. Chapman lived in the late 1700s and early 1800s and gradually made his way to the Ohio Valley, where this story primarily is centered.

Indiana regions, planting seeds, caring for apple trees and teaching farmers about apple cultivation. Supposedly, Chapman wore a coffee bean sack for a tunic and a cooking pot on his head during his travels. Did we mention he was supposed to have been barefoot the entire time…even during winter? Over the course of his lifetime, it is said that he planted thousands upon thousands of apple trees. October 20 at 8:00 pm October 21 at 2:30 pm

ter, etc.), apples are actually a pretty powerful fruit. The appeal of the apple as a healing food can be traced back to (guess who?) the Greeks. It was a custom to serve apples, among other fruit, at the end of a meal to aid in digestion. The saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” may actually be a good rule to live by. Research has shown that apples have been linked to helping with weight loss to cancer to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. More recent studies are beginning to see a link between

• To be the apple of someone’s eye means to be very special; the term comes from the ancient belief that the pupil of the eye was solid and spherical, like an apple.

• Phytonutrients – these include vitamins A and E, and beta carotene, which are linked to reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes and asthma.

• Sir Isaac Newton developed his Second Law about gravity and its behavior based on what he observed while watching an apple fall from a tree.

With so many types of apples to be had, what are the most popular varieties? In the U.S. the top spot goes to the Red Delicious. The runner up, Gala, is followed by Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Fuji, McIntosh, Rome, Empire, Braeburn and Idared.

OTHER FUN APPLE FACTS

What makes apples so special? Unlike many fruits, which are still highly recommended as part of a healthy, balanced diet, apples maintain much of their nutritional benefits for as long as 200 days after harvesting.

• If you forgot your toothbrush on a trip, just munch on an apple. The meat of the apple acts as a toothbrush and helps kill bacteria in your mouth.

Here are some of the important nutrients found in apples:

• Apple juice is said to be one of the earliest antidepressants prescribed.

DON’T FORGET THE WINE… OR THE CIDER Apple cider is a traditional fall drink that is essentially apple juice that has not been strained or pasteurized for preservation purposes. Its origins date back to at least 55 B.C. where English villagers showed off their drink to the Romans. Apple wine, on the other hand, is a fermented form of cider that is mainly found in German-speaking countries and referred to as Apfelwein. The Internet likes to boast the ease with which apple wine can be made, but the lack of a fermentation bin and 4-5 weeks of patience might affect the ease of creating this drink.

he American Geriatrics Society Foundation has created a new website just for seniors: Health in Aging. Everything on the site has been written by experts in senior health. That’s good to know, because half of us over the age of 65 have at least three chronic medical conditions.

We are a federally designated debt relief agency pursuant to Title 11 of the U.S. Code, to help people file bankruptcy

Here are a few highlights: --The A-to-Z glossary gives easy-tounderstand information on a whole alphabet of health conditions. --You’ll find information about problems that come with aging, news on the latest information about aging and a link on finding a geriatrics health care professional. --One of the most important sections is on preventing drug interactions. Drugs work differently on seniors, and it’s not always possible to know exactly how an individual will respond to a drug,

because most clinical trials are done on healthy, young adults. We seniors have a different metabolism, less muscle mass, and age-related variables that can change the rate of absorption. Often, we have multiple medical conditions that can change how a drug will work, especially in combination. --When it comes to exploring the different types of living arrangements open to us when we need help with daily living, the site outlines assisted living, home care, nursing homes and community-based help, such as adult day care. --Guidelines for making our wishes known are written in easy-to-understand language with all the legal terms explained for advance directives (living wills, durable power of attorney for health care and Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment), endof-life care, guardianship and informed consent. Health in Aging (HealthinAging.org) is worth exploring and saving for future reference. Reminder: Have you had your flu shot yet?

SHAKY HANDS NOT DUE TO NERVOUSNESS DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you please provide information on essential tremor? Thanks. -- D.C. ANSWER: When people unfamiliar with essential tremor see a person with it, they immediately assume that the person is quite nervous. The shaky hands are a giveaway. It’s not “nerves” that are causing the shakiness; it’s essential tremor. A glitch in one of the brain’s movement-control centers has occurred. Katharine Hepburn suffered from essential tremor. Not only did her hands shake, but so did her head and her voice. Essential tremor is a common condition. Its other name is familial tremor, indicating that it runs in families. Most affected people can find other relatives who have it. Trembling hands make it near impossible to bring a spoonful of soup to the mouth. Handwriting often degenerates into a scrawl. Buttoning a shirt or coat becomes a herculean task. Alcohol abolishes the tremor for a short time. Alcohol can’t be used as a treatment. Other medicines, like propranolol (Inderal) and primidone (Mysoline), offer effective control. For seriously disabling tremors, deep-brain stimulation can put an end to them. People can help control shaking hands by holding their elbows firmly against the body when using their hands for a fine task. Everyone with essential tremor needs to make the acquaintance of the International Essential Tremor Foundation at 888387-3667 (toll-free) or online at www. essentialtremor.org. The foundation is a

*** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Many years ago, we moved to a small community next to the ocean. We have eaten large quantities of fish ever since. I have developed a parasite called pinworms, which I believe came from partly uncooked fish. I used to see them when they exited from my colon (backside). They are fewer now that I take Oregano Leaf Oil. Can they cause other ailments or infiltrate other organs? How does one get rid of them once and for all? -- J.D.

ANSWER: Pinworms are an extremely common infection, especially in children. During the night, the female pinworm crawls out of the rectum to lay eggs on the nearby skin. She is tiny, 0.4 inches (1 cm) long. You must have good eyes to see these worms. A magnifying glass is a big help. Pinworms rarely make their way to other organs. Some speculate that they might be a cause of appendicitis.

PALMER LAKE WELLNESS CENTER

Eggs on the skin cause intense itching. Your doctor is best equipped to make the diagnosis. Doctors have the instruments to clearly see the worm or its eggs. Mebendazole (Vermox), albendazole (Albenza) and pyrantel pamoate (Pin-X) have a good track record of getting rid of pinworms. They are not found in fish.

Undercooked freshwater fish can harbor the fish tapeworm, which grows to a length of 39 feet. It produces few, if any, symptoms. Prolonged infection with it can lead to vitamin B-12 deficiency.

our trees and shrubs? Damage from drought is often unnoticeable until many months later and right now many trees and shrubs are developing their buds for next year. That is why fall is just as an important time to keep a good watering schedule as anytime in the spring or summer.

FALL AND WINTER WATERING

I

don’t have to convince anyone that this year has been hard on our plants. It was a dry winter, followed by a dry spring and a very hot and dry summer. Now that fall is here and we have been getting a few wonderful rainy days we’re finally off the hook for watering. Right? Wrong. Especially after a drought, watering correctly during the fall and winter is absolutely crucial to the health of our plants and will determine how well they perform the following spring. Of course we all have our fingers crossed that this winter will be a wet one! Just in case it’s not though, let’s ensure that they are strong and healthy going into dormancy. Our summer was dry and most of us were on water restrictions. So what does that mean for the health of

(IN STOCK ITEMS ONLY)

*During the sale & while supplies last!

Now that it’s October we can certainly cut down on watering, but it is recommended to water one to two times a month from October thru March. For large established trees this means ten gallons per inch in diameter of the trunk each time you water. It’s best to water at least a few feet from the trunk and out to the farthest branch line or drip line and water like this in four different spots around your tree to provide an even watering. You can adjust this amount according to any moisture we might get. We will get! Keeping fingers crossed. Apply five gallons of water for small shrubs and eighteen gallons for large shrubs (over 6’). Any newly planted trees and shrubs should be watered more frequently, like three times a month. Perennials will also benefit from winter watering. In addition to watering just for the sake of keeping our plants hydrated it helps prevent the ground from freezing and thawing and the problems that can create.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL

• On Oct. 13, 1775, the Continental Congress authorizes construction and administration of the first American naval force. Esek Hopkins was appointed the first commander-in-chief of the Continental Navy. His first fleet consisted of seven ships: two 24-gun frigates, two 14-gun brigs and three schooners. • On Oct. 12, 1786, a lovesick Thomas Jefferson composes the first of many romantic letters to a married woman named Maria Cosway. In 1789, his letters grew less frequent. She continued to write to him and vented her frustration at his growing aloofness. After her husband died, Cosway moved to a village in Italy to open a convent school for girls. • On Oct. 11, 1793, the death toll from a yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia hits 100. By the time it ended, 5,000 people were dead. A vaccine prevents yellow fever in much of the world, though 20,000 people still die every year from the disease. • On Oct. 14, 1944, German Gen. Erwin

Rommel, nicknamed “the Desert Fox,â€? is given the option of facing a public trial for treason, as a co-conspirator in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, or taking cyanide. He chose the latter. The German government gave Rommel a state funeral. His death was attributed to war wounds. • On Oct. 8, 1956, New York Yankees righthander Don Larsen pitches the first no-hitter in the history of the World Series. Even better, it was a perfect game -- that is, there were no runs, no hits and no errors, and no batter reached first base. • On Oct. 10, 1985, the hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro reaches a dramatic climax when U.S. Navy F-14 fighters intercept an Egyptian airliner attempting to fly the Palestinian hijackers to freedom. On Oct. 7, four heavily armed terrorists had hijacked the Achille Lauro and 320 crewmembers and 80 passengers. • On Oct. 9, 1992, a 28-pound bowling-ballsized meteorite lands on an orange 1980 Chevy Malibu in Peekskill, N.Y. Scientists have determined that it came from the inner edge of the main asteroid belt in space, between Jupiter and Mars. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

A RECIPE FOR KID-FRIENDLY MEALS

G

etting children to eat a healthy dinner often takes a little extra planning. You might try combining healthy ingredients in interesting ways. This recipe for Black Bean and Broccoli-Stuffed Potatoes is vegetarian dish that has all of the flavors of a nacho or a taco. The addition of broccoli makes it a nutritious and easyto-prepare meal. You also might try using colorful and interesting dinnerware or place mats. Involving your child in the meal preparation is another way to ensure that they’ll eat dinner. It’s also the perfect time to make memories and instill healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.

BLACK BEAN AND BROCCOLI-STUFFED POTATOES 4 large russet baking potatoes, scrubbed 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 (8 ounce) box, frozen broccoli florets, thawed 1 1/2 cups mild or medium prepared salsa 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)

New DVD Releases for Week of October 8, 2012 PICKS OF THE WEEK “Prometheus” (R) -- Ridley Scott directs this (kinda) prequel to “Alien,” wherein a bunch of planet-jumping archaeologists explore the ruins of an alien civilization and discover all kinds of bad stuff there in the dark: alien monsters, ancient doomsday technology, bone-chilling revelations. Really, they were asking for it. Charlize Theron is the captain of the ship, and Michael Fassbender plays the erudite android. Fassbender’s performance holds

up the film pretty well: He’s detached an awkward enough to be a mixed-up android, but he’s observant and curious enough to be a dangerous intellect. Like many of its peers, the movie shifts from spooky sci-fi exploration to all-out terror near the end. “The Raven” (R) -- John Cusack stars as the horror-mystery author Edgar Allen Poe in this Gothic thriller. Somebody is imitating the brutal murders described in Poe’s crime stories, so the Baltimore police detectives bring in the writer to help solve the case. While it’s well-researched, the film isn’t quite on Poe’s level with its by-thebook storyline and enormous plot holes. But really, how many well-researched Gothic murder mysteries are coming out these days? “The Raven” is spooky and interesting enough to keep you along for the ride. “A Cat in Paris” (PG) -- Dino is an adorable house cat in a colorful and stylis-

tic animated version of Paris. By day, he lives with a little girl who doesn’t speak; at night, he works with an agile human thief who climbs into buildings -- a cat burglar, if you will. One night, the little girl follows Dino and gets caught by some gangsters planning a heist. Dino and the burglar have to team up and go on a scenic adventure to rescue her.

from late ‘80s rock, including Journey, Bon Jovi and Night Ranger. All of the music is sung by the actors themselves. No matter how goofy the songs might sound to us today, you’ll always notice that the actors just can’t come close the vocal abilities of the original performers. You’ll be sick of this movie well before the final number.

DOG OF THE WEEK

TV RELEASES

“Rock of Ages” (PG-13) -- It’s exactly what all the posters promised: a big cheesy musical full of ‘80s hair metal. A pretty young girl from Oklahoma decides to follow her dreams to the glamorous Sunset Strip in LA. She meets some handsome guy who plays guitar, and then they sing as if their relationship is just so incredibly unbelievable. Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Paul Giamatti are there to be funny. Musical numbers are all drawn

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then.

OCTOBER 8, 2012

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, it’s a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) “Caution” continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Don’t let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem.

13

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. You’ll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You’re right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism ‘twixt the two sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor.

THE MONSTER BASH: The Legend of Linus Bardamas PART 2

By Nicholas Yanez

A

s the army of trows continued to move south, away from their home gate, they began to worry. They knew the sun was less than two hours from rising. Once it did, the trows would grow weak and feeble standing no chance to escape the Norwegian Monsters. Linus looked around the scurry and found a familiar face. He called out to Humgaurd, his lifelong friend and neighbor. Linus questioned his comrade, searching for ideas of how to return home. Humgaurd too was thinking about the inevitability of the daytime coming and searching his thoughts for an answer. “Over here!” yelled a voice from the west. Linus and the others looked through the grass to see a young trow, barely nine years old. He begged the group to follow him. “I have a way home” said the youngling. Trows were a trusting bunch, honest with themselves, they knew they hadn’t a better solution. They chose to follow the youngster. As he led them out of the grass and into a desert-like area, the group saw traces of young trow footprints. They wandered through a valley and into a deep jungle, one where shadows would overtake the sun. There were even more abundant footprints there; clear traces of Trow. “What is this place?” asked Humgaurd. “It’s where they ran away” responded the little one, shame in his body language.

Sisters’ Thrift and Boutique is always looking for volunteers and upscale, clean, gently used clothing, accessories, household items, sporting goods, decorating items, baby equipment, clean linens and small furniture items. If you are interested in being part of this worthwhile organization, please contact Sandy at sistersthriftandboutique@benethillmonastery.org, or call the store at 719-282-0316. About Benet Hill: The Benet Hill Monastery and Ministry Center is located on 44 acre site in the Black Forest along Highway 83. The entire landscape is ideal for the home of a Benedictine community of religious women serving as a “sacred place” for the human spirit to find welcoming monastic hospitality, renewal and healing. The sisters have provided a broad range of educational and spiritual services over the past 95 years to the people in Colorado and around the world. The Benedictine Spirituality Center in the Pines continuously offers educational and formational curriculum that has empowered thousands of adults. They sponsor a variety of programs from Sacramental to Contemplative to Spiritual Direction and retreats. Programs and services are open to people of all faiths. To learn more go to: www.benethillmonastery.org

A couple of years ago, nearly twenty trow children escaped in the middle of the night. No one knew what had happened to the adolescent bunch; until now that is. The little one explained that he was sworn to secrecy when the group had set out to explore the night. For months the young trows had secretly created their own tunnel system, conveniently leading to an area where they knew light had very little influence. A somber mood overcame the group, knowing that the little ones had succeeded their plan and escaped. They also knew that the young trows must have been taken by the light. The mood quickly shifted as the group realized the tunnels were still there, and would lead the villager’s home. Linus and his fellow Trow opened the hatches built by the lost younglings and entered the secret caves. They had found a way home before the sun had risen. They were safe for now. But as they trudged through the small channels one by one, they heard a noise. It was distant, but obvious. The Monsters were destroying their underground home from the North side. With each thumping, crumbling noise the trow stayed the course; headed to an inevitable showdown.

But we think of our community as our extended family as well, and invite all cooks both in our immediate area and in the general region to submit their favorite Italian recipes for entrees, appetizers, pizza and even dessert. We would enjoy the opportunity to cook your favorite Italian food for you and for the community of our customers.” ~ Chris Bohler, Chef and Co-Owner, The Villa Palmer Lake.

fine to use, they are not a replacement for brushing -- at least once a week -and an annual dental checkup and tooth cleaning. Purchase a pet-specific toothbrush and toothpaste at the pet store or vet’s office. Human toothbrushes and mint-flavored toothpaste will not do. Pet toothbrushes often are shaped to fit over one finger so that you can hold your pet’s head still and gently lift his or her lip in order to reach the gums.

PETS NOT IMMUNE TO GUM DISEASE DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My dog, “Parker,” had two teeth removed during his last visit to the veterinarian, who said he had periodontal disease. I always thought that feeding him teethcleaning dog treats was enough to keep his teeth healthy, but the veterinarian said no. Can you let your readers know that their pet’s teeth need regular brushing and periodic checkups at the vet’s office? -- Sharon in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Place a small dab of pet toothpaste onto the brush, cradle your pet’s head, and lift his or her lip upward (or downward, if brushing the lower teeth). Brush by starting at the gumline and brushing gently down over the teeth (or upward, if brushing the lower teeth). Be patient and give your pet lots of encouragement. Many pets resist having their teeth brushed, so again, be patient and gentle, and give lots of praise and a treat at the end of each session.

UNPACK YOUR UNIQUENESS By Ron Ross

Y

ou are unique – that’s it. You’re not “somewhat unique” nor are you “very unique”. You are unique. You are the only one like you. Unique, you see, is a term that cannot be modified by an adverb or degree or a comparative adverb. For instance, if someone says that you are “somewhat unique” they probably mean you are unusual, maybe a little odd, or even weird. If someone describes you as “very unique” it probably means that you are exceptional in some way or maybe eccentric, or worst of all,

frightening. But either way, they are not using the word unique correctly. Unique means only one thing: one of a kind. So you can’t be “very” one of a kind or “somewhat” one of a kind. You can only be one of a kind.

That’s because of your unique experiences in life: The environment you grew up in, your education, your interests, the people you’ve met along the way, all of these experiences and people have left their impression on you and have impacted the way you sort out all the information placed before you at any given moment.

And that’s what YOU are. You are You feel the way you feel. No one one of a kind. reacts emotionally to life just like You look the way you look.

Oscar Wilde said, “Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” Don’t allow that description to apply to you. Unpack your uniqueness. Let the real you shine. Drop the phony imitations of others and be uniquely you. It was the late great jazz singer Billie Holliday who said, “If I’m going to sing like someone else, then I don’t need to sing at all.” You see, you’re not your best you can be if you are trying to be someone else; but you are your best when you are totally you. And that is for one simple reason: you are unique – that’s it. You’re not “somewhat unique” nor are you “very unique”, you are unique. You are the only one like you. Your swift kick in the pants for this week is this – stop imitating others and unpack your very own uniqueness.

the dry cycle is finished. Go the Consumer Product Safety Commission (http://www.cpsc.gov) for the latest recall information and to report unsafe products. The most recent recall information is on the front page. Or call its toll-free consumer hotline: 1-800- 638-2772.

HOW TO AVOID BUYING DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS

W

hen it comes to your family’s safety, it’s important to try and investigate products you plan to buy. For example, 12 models of a popular coffee maker have been recalled after more than 60 reports of the water heating chamber releasing hot water and grounds -- causing burn injuries to hands, faces and torsos. These models were sold over the past two years, and therefore might have made it to the discount-store level as newer models came on the market. Two million baby bath seats have been recalled due to sudden collapse that spills the baby out of the seat. Reported injuries so far include skull fractures and bleeding on the brain as a result of the falls. The manufacturer has offered a free repair kit that will lock the seat in position. Twenty-one thousand gas dryers have been recalled because the gas valve doesn’t shut off, which causes the temperatures to rise even after

If there’s a malfunction with an item, report it. Only after a number of people report malfunctions and injuries from consumer products will recalls be issued. Never assume you’re the only one with a problem. Be sure to report your safety problem to the manufacturer as well. Many of them will do a voluntary recall to catch the problem quickly, before it shows up at the Consumer Product Safety Commission level. If your gift buying for the coming holiday season includes making purchases at discount stores, consider that the models available there might not be current. It’s important to check for recalls on any models of appliances before you buy them. Search for product information at saferproducts.gov. Purchasing an online subscription to Consumer Reports magazine is well worth the small cost. You get even more information than the print edition alone. Online, by signing in with your ID and password, you can access comments made by other consumers and expanded information on the products you want to buy. Additionally, you can sign up to receive monthly email information about product safety and recalls. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
