It’s birthday time for those born in September! Here are a few tidbits about these autumn babies, both past and present. • Ed Sullivan was 62 years old when the Beatles made their first live appearance in America on his TV variety show in 1964. Every Sunday night since 1948, this former boxer had promised “a really big show” to his viewers, frequently prefacing his introductions with, “And now, right here on our stage…” The Beatles’ performance made that week’s show the most-watched program in TV history to date. Sullivan’s program remained on the air until 1971. • Prince Harry, the younger son of Charles and Diana born in September 1984, isn’t really Harry at all, but rather Henry Charles Albert David. The 27-year-old pilot in training is third in line to the British throne.

• “You might be a redneck” if you’re familiar with the work of September baby Jeff Foxworthy. This Blue Collar Comedy Team member also hosts the quiz show “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” Foxworthy didn’t start out as a comedian, but rather as a mainframe computer maintenance technician at IBM, a company where his father was an executive. It was his IBM co-workers who convinced him to enter a comedy talent show in 1984. turn the page for more!

Friendly Knowledgeable STAFF

CHRIS WADDELL Chris Waddell’s story is one of a young man who was dealt a tragedy yet chose to turn it into triumph. This week, Tidbits looks into the life of this remarkable athlete who overcame astounding difficulties to reach victory. • In 1988, Chris Waddell was a promising young ski racer as a freshman at Vermont’s Middlebury College. With the goal of going All-American, he planned to spend his Christmas break training on the slopes. On the first day of his vacation, he experienced a devastating crash, one that broke his back and paralyzed him from the waist down.

becoming the most decorated skier in Paralympic history. In addition, he has nine World Champion medals. Along the way, as a way of helping other disabled athletes, he founded a camp for up-and-coming mono-skiers. • As if all of Waddell’s triumphs in ski racing weren’t sufficient, he branched out into wheelchair racing and nabbed the World Championship in 1998 and a Paralympic gold medal. His greatest conquest, however, occurred in 2009, when the 42-year-old paraplegic climbed to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, using the power of his own arms. He ascended the 19,340foot-high (5,895-m) mountain in six and half days, wheeling himself up in a specially designed four-wheeled mountain bike, a 50-pound (22.7-kg), 27-geared cycle that can scale foot-high boulders. The final 4,000 feet (1,219 m) were a vertical climb, during which he was secured to a winch and pedaled up a fixed rope. Waddell estimated that it took 528,000 revolutions of the cycle’s wheels to reach the summit. Speaking of his monumental feat, his words were, “My goal was to change the lives of the 600 million people in the world with physical disabilities. That day I felt like I rode on their power.”

• Waddell has been honored by Skiing magazine as one of “The 25 Greatest Skiers in North America.” He has had modeling assignments for department stores and catalogs and had a role in the daytime drama “Loving.” People magazine has included him on their list of “The Fifty Most Beautiful People in the World.” • Waddell has also created a non-profit foundation called One Revolution (referring to one rotation of a wheelchair’s wheel), with the goal of bringing “hope and inspiration to the disabled community.” He maintains he wouldn’t change a thing about his life, saying, “I don’t think what happens to you is nearly as significant as what you do with what happens to you.”

• As Waddell lay recuperating in the hospital, he made up his mind to continue skiing in some shape or form. Within two months of the accident, he was back again at Middlebury, enrolled in Spring Semester classes. Ten months after that, he was back on the hill, learning to mono-ski in a speciallybuilt ski frame. • Waddell remained on the Middlebury ski team as he worked to perfect his abilities, and as a senior at the college, served as captain of the team. Two years after his first attempt at monoskiing, he was named to the U.S. Disabled Ski Team. He first competed at the Paralympic Winter Games in 1992, winning two silver medals. In Lillehammer’s 1994 Paralympics, he collected all four golds. He continued his participation in these events up through 2002, garnering 12 total medals,

Find All Puzzle Answers on page 12! WACKY WARNINGS In this day of frequent lawsuits, manufacturers are making sure they have all their bases covered. In their attempt to shield consumers from injury, they list some rather bizarre safety precautions. This week, we bring you some actual warnings found on a variety of products. • Boxes of Christmas lights were distributed with the counsel, “For indoor or outdoor use only.” The question is, what other kind of use is there? • Even though it seems to be the purpose of pepper spray, the warning on one brand of this self-defense item reads, “May irritate eyes.” The same goes for the advisory on a popular nighttime sleep aid: “Warning, may cause drowsiness.” • Fishermen, try to avoid the temptation to ingest your threeprong hooked fishing lure, because, after all, it’s “harmful if swallowed.” • You probably won’t be tempted to disobey the warning found on one electronic thermometer: “Do not use orally after using rectally.” Similarly, one well-known brand of toilet brush directs, “Do not use for personal hygiene.” Don’t worry! Most folks won’t even think of it! • Do-it-yourselfers, beware! You are advised not to use a 12-inch compact disk storage rack as a ladder. Likewise, your electric drill might carry the warning found on one manufacturer’s brand, “This product not intended for use as a dental drill.” And if you haven’t read the owner’s manual for your chainsaw, you may have missed the admonition, “Do not attempt to stop the blade with your hand.” • The wrapper of a popular fruit roll-up states, “Remove plastic before eating.” You’d think it would just taste better that way! • In case you’re trying to take care of all your pets at the same time, one brand of dog shampoo has a label informing users, “The contents of this bottle should not be fed to fish.” • We’ve all been in a hurry in the morning, and perhaps that’s what prompted the warning on a popular household iron, “Never iron clothes while they are being worn.” And by all means, follow the precautions on your hair dryer, “Do not use in shower. Never use while sleeping.” • The next time you take your little one out for a ride in the stroller, you might want to read the label on the contraption that states, “Caution, remove baby before folding stroller.” • If you recall the winter days of your childhood, perhaps the words of warning on a snow sled ring true: “Beware, sled may develop high speed under certain snow conditions.” • Bicyclists and roller-bladers should be aware of the hazards associated with shin guards —“Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover.” That seems to make sense! • Not that you planned to, but the next time you’re changing the cartridge in your laser printer, “Do not eat toner.” • The warning label on a certain children’s cold medicine is designed to ensure that its 6- to 12-year-old users don’t operate any heavy machinery because this product can cause drowsiness. These youngsters should also consult a health professional before use if they’re pregnant. • Be advised when choosing your child’s superhero costume for Halloween as, “This cape does not give the wearer the ability to fly.”

Hard Time for Plaxico Burress A man we’ll call Ron Doe was convicted for a murder he did not commit when he was 34 and sentenced to hard time. Fifteen years after Doe’s conviction, his defense attorneys discovered notes from the prosecution that indicated that a chief witness in the case had made contradictory statements that helped convict him. Five years later, after a brutal court battle, Doe was released. He promptly turned around and launched a $20 million federal civil-rights lawsuit for wrongful imprisonment.

with a coarse brush and rinse clean. You also can use plain white vinegar -- straight up or diluted half and half with warm water -- or even lemon juice to tackle rust stains.

He settled for $900,000 -- an agreement that guarantees him $50,000 cash and payments that amount to a little more than $3,500 a month for the next 11 years -- compensation that amounts to $45,000 for every year he spent behind bars. Plaxico Burress is 34. On June 6, 2011, he was released from a protective custody unit of the Oneida Correctional Facility in Rome, N.Y. That’s where he had spent two years serving out a sentence for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh with his own illegal handgun in the VIP room of a Manhattan nightclub. And while he was released from the hospital just days later, a jury said his reckless endangerment of others was enough to convict, despite pleas for leniency. Despite the fact that he had once caught the deciding touchdown pass for the New York Giants in the greatest upset in Super Bowl history a year earlier. Plax was routinely jeered by inmates, but kept separate from the population save for his three showers a week, three hours of daily recreation and weekend visits. And those visits had to be truly heartbreaking. His wife was pregnant, and he had a 3-year-old son at the time of his conviction. While it may be hard to weep for a guy who collected a $1 million signing bonus weeks after being released by his former employers, you’ve got to feel for the kid. My 2-year-old kid wonders where daddy goes when he leaves the house. Wife tells him I’m a “newsman.” Works for him. What did Mrs. Burress tell her kid? I can’t speak for Ron Doe’s incarceration, but I’m guessing it wasn’t a cakewalk. I think it’s safe to say that since he was wrongfully convicted, the compensation probably won’t make up for the distress and two decades shorn off of his life. As for Plax? He was guilty as charged, and he did his time. And a little more than a month later, he received a oneyear contract from the New York Jets worth more than $3 million. That translates into $187,500 to play toss-and-catch for 16 football games this season. Hard time ... right, Plax? Mark Vasto is a veteran sportswriter and publisher of The Kansas City Luminary.

One thing you should never use to remove rust stains on concrete is bleach. It can make the problem worse.

Cleaning Up “Rusty” Concrete Q: My concrete driveway has several bright-orange stains that look like rust. How did this happen, and how can I clean it up? -- Jane C., Winter Park, Fla. A: There are several ways that rust finds its way onto concrete to stain it: a metal tool left sitting on the driveway in the rain, rust washing off of a vehicle parked on it, and so on. The good news is that most rust stains can be cleaned off of concrete fairly easily. Home-improvement stores sell an array of cleaners that specifically address rust-stained concrete. They’re generally not too expensive; simply apply and clean according to the package instructions. However, one of the most effective cleaners that will remove many rust stains is probably in your kitchen cabinet: citric acid. It can be found in the spices section of most grocery stores, typically sold as “sour salt.” Many powdered drink mixes contain citric acid, which means, in theory, that you could take a non-staining drink mix like, say, lemonade flavored Kool-Aid, mix it with a couple quarts of water, pour onto the stain, scrub

If the driveway is extensively stained, or if repeated scrubbing doesn’t clear up the problem, contact a driveway specialist. He or she will likely recommend the driveway be resurfaced and sealed to correct the problem and prevent it from happening again anytime soon. If that’s the case, ask for a written quote before agreeing to any work.

To prevent future rust stains, keep outdoor concrete clear of metal tools, and repair areas where water leaks or drains across the concrete, particularly from metal structures like carports or gutters. Send your questions or comments to ask@thisisahammer. com, or write This Is a Hammer, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

One of the joys of raising kids is making new friends with others who also are raising kids. When my three were preschoolers, I regularly met up with neighborhood moms at the bus stop in the morning or for ballgames at the park and story time at the library. As the kids grew, so did the friendships. Six of us still make a point of getting together throughout the seasons to celebrate our birthdays. One recent gathering was particularly memorable.

“To an American eye, Italy might seem the same, with pasta and pizza wherever you go,” she began. “But for food lovers, it’s a country waiting to be discovered! Each region has its unique flavors and cooking techniques. For example, the taste of a simple ricotta cheese can vary from place to place,” she said. As she shared her passion for Italian food, she emphasized that using fresh, seasonal ingredients is key to tasty meals. That’s when she showed us how to transform eggplant into a light side dish called Pizzette di melanzane, common in the Compania region, where she is from. Like a pizza minus the

crust, these mini eggplant pizzas are tasty and versatile. Now that eggplants are plentiful in our markets, find Italy and the Compania region on a map in your home, and have fun preparing this easy and authentic Italian recipe with your kids.

3. Like constructing mini pizzas, let kids spoon the tomato puree over each round. Scatter the garlic and oregano, sprinkle salt to taste and top with mozzarella. Add Parmigiano Reggiano, if you wish. 4. Bake rounds in the oven for 25 minutes or until mozzarella has melted completely and bubbles. 5. Serve immediately as a light side dish with a summer pasta salad and other fresh vegetables. Makes 8-10 mini pizzas.

ANSWER: A lack of fluids, too little fiber and inactivity are the major causes of constipation. Laxatives used to be thought of as dangerous remedies, to be used sparingly if at all. People do not develop a “laxative habit,” and their colons are not harmed by them. Your husband has done all he can without any results. It is much unhealthier for him to strain to eliminate than it is to take a laxative. He can use whichever one he wants. MiraLAX is a reliable one. Mineral oil is not great idea. If the oil goes down the wrong way and enters the lungs, it can cause big trouble. Once the laxative has restored normal movements, your husband ought to stay on his high-fiber diet. Fiber doesn’t always end constipation, but it does keep one regular. Establishing a morning routine often works. Feeding a baby calls for a diaper change shortly thereafter. The brain sends a signal to the infant’s colon to empty. The same reflex works in adults, but we have dulled it deliberately. It can be restored by drinking a caffeinated beverage for breakfast and then taking a walk after eating. Have your husband try this homemade remedy: Mix 2 cups of bran (obtained at a health-food store) with 2 cups of applesauce and 1 cup of prune juice, sweetened or unsweetened. Refrigerate the mix. Your husband can take up to three tablespoons twice a day. He should start with a smaller dose.

Laxatives Have Gotten an Unfair Reputation

The pamphlet on constipation and laxatives provides other ways to treat this common problem. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 504W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order DEAR DR. DONOHUE: For the past two years, my (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s husband has been trying to deal with constipation. We have printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for tried everything -- lots of fruits and vegetables, prunes and delivery. fiber. He takes a spoonful of mineral oil daily. He is active and plays golf twice a week and walks 2 miles on the other *** mornings. A lifelong fear of becoming dependent on laxatives prevents him from taking any. We are at a loss about what to DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Can a person have bursitis and do. Any suggestions you make are appreciated. -- J.H. arthritis at the same time?

My neighbor says you cannot have bursitis and arthritis at the same time. -- S.L. ANSWER: Your neighbor is wrong. A bursa is a little sac outside of the joint. It lies between a tendon and a bone. It prevents irritation when the tendon rubs against the bone. Bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa. Arthritis is something that happens within the joint. Your trauma damaged the cartilages within the joint, and they have become frayed and slightly inflamed. There is no law that says you can’t have both bursitis and arthritis at the same time. ***

A Little Personal Space, Please DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I read a recent column of yours where an owner said her cat tended to scratch and nip at her without warning. You said that the cat might have some socialization problems due to being a shelter pet, or might be experiencing some stress. Could I add that cats that are perfectly “normal” and loving also will scratch or nip if they are surprised or feel otherwise threatened. It’s natural. -- Cat Fan in Chicago DEAR CAT FAN: You’re right; many cats will turn and scratch or nip when surprised. Others will bat or scratch at strangers or even family members who reach out to them. Why? Well, like humans, cats have varying levels of “personal space,” so to speak. And because they’re fiercely independent, many have specific likes and dislikes -- opinions that can vary from family member to family member.

It’s important to approach a cat, or any animal, with respect. Never sneak up behind or grab at a cat, and don’t yell or make loud noises. Approach from an angle where it can see you clearly, and speak in a calm, reassuring voice. Hold out your hand for inspection, and let the cat come to you. It’s possible to figure out the most important signals just from this move. If it sniffs at your hand, rubs its whiskers against it and backs away, the cat’s not interested in being picked up or petted at the moment. If it approaches you after rubbing its whiskers against your hand, you’re welcome to pet it. If it allows you to gently pick it up and doesn’t struggle, great. If it jumps into your lap, you belong to it (just kidding -- sort of!). Send your question or comment to ask@pawscorner. com, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. For more pet care-related advice and information, visit www.

HOLLYWOOD -- Went to Zsa Zsa Gabor and Prince Frederick Anhalt’s 25th anniversary party in their Bel-Air home. Phyllis Diller, 94, and “Batman’s” Cat Woman, Julie Newmar, 78, were the first to arrive. Robert Blake sat at the piano, and sang and danced. Quincy Jones, producer of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Mad TV,” as well as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video and album, sat with me poolside. He’s such a nice man, and he didn’t refuse any of the 50 people who wanted photos taken with him. Zsa Zsa only received in her bedroom, though none of the above saw her. However, Judge Charles Rubin, who sentenced her to community service 22 years ago for slapping a cop, was shown into her boudoir ... go figure!


Tab Hunter, 80, did “Battle Cry” (1955), “Damn Yankees” (1958) and “Grease 2” (1982). His tell-all book, “Tab Hunter: Confidential,” is being made as a documentary. He lives on his horse ranch in Santa Barbara with his partner of many years. Chad Everett, 75, did “Medical Center,” “Airplane 2” (1982) and the series “Undercovers” last year. He’s in the new web series “No Clean Break.” Connie Stevens did “Hawaiian Eye,” “Grease 2” (1982) and “Back to the Beach” (1987). She wed actor James Stacy (1963-’67) and Eddie Fisher (1967-’69) and has two daughters with Fisher, Joely and Tricia Leigh. Connie still does her club act and has several successful businesses, including the beauty product “Forever Young.” Ann-Margret, 70, did “Bye, Bye Birdie” and “Viva Las Vegas” with Elvis. Sixteen films later she was Oscarnominated for “Carnal Knowledge” with Jack Nicholson and won praise for The Who’s “Tommy.” She was in the film “Lucky” with Colin Hanks out last month. She wed Roger Smith in ‘67 and won her first Emmy last year for “Law & Order: SVU.” Her “Bye, Bye Birdie” co-star Bobby Rydell is 69 and still tours with Frankie Avalon and Fabian. Shelley Fabares, 67, of “The Donna Reed Show,” had a No. 1 hit record with “Johnny Angel” (1962) and starred on the sitcom “Coach.” She wed “M*A*S*H’s” Mike Farrell in 1972 and had a successful liver transplant in 2000. In 2006, Shelley voiced an animated straight-to-video film, but has made her health her main priority. Richard Beymer did “The Diary of Anne Frank” (1959) and the films “High Time” with Bing Crosby and Fabian and “West Side Story” with Natalie Wood in the 1960s, plus the 1990s’ series “Twin Peaks.” Richard lives in Fairfield, Iowa, where he writes, paints, takes photos and makes movies. Bette Davis once said, “You must let your public see you once a year so you grow old together.” These teen heartthrobs probably would prefer to have you remember them the way they were!

by Samantha Weaver • It was revered American comedian Bill Cosby who made the following sage observation: ‘Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home.’ • Here’s a disturbing statistic for parents: If your child is like the average American youth, between the ages of 5 and 15 he or she will see approximately 13,500 people killed on television. • Most languages change dramatically over time. If we in modern America were to try to read “Beowulf” (which was written in Old English), for instance, only those who have spent time studying the language would be able to make out more than a word or two here and there. If you’re from Iceland, however, this isn’t the case; the written language there has remained virtually unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Modern Icelanders have no trouble reading sagas that were written in the 10th century. • Relative to body size, humans -- unsurprisingly -have larger brains than any other animal. Of non-human animals, it’s the bottlenose dolphin that has the largest brain.

• When Great Britain’s current Queen Elizabeth -- then Princess Elizabeth -- wed Prince Philip, their wedding cake weighed a whopping 500 pounds. • As legend has it, in 1288, when Dusseldorf, Germany, was granted its city charter, children all over the city began turning cartwheels for joy. The cartwheel has been an enduring part of the culture there ever since, and in 1937 the city even inaugurated an annual international cartwheel championship. • Those who study such things claim that when you’re playing Monopoly, you’re likely to land on Illinois Avenue and the B&O Railroad more than on any other squares. ***

• On Sept. 16, 1620, the Mayflower sails from Plymouth, England, bound for the New World with 102 passengers. The ship was headed for Virginia, but stormy weather and navigational errors forced the Mayflower off course. On Nov. 21, the “Pilgrims” arrived in Massachusetts. • On Sept. 15, 1916, during the Battle of the Somme, the British launch a major offensive against the Germans, employing tanks for the first time. Although slow, the tanks showed promise and hundreds more were ordered. • On Sept. 17, 1923, a fire threatens the University of California at Berkeley, kills two people and causes $10 million in damages. Homeowners fought the flames with garden hoses and buckets, and students from the University of California pitched in, as the fire came right to the campus gates. • On Sept. 13, 1936, 17-year-old Cleveland Indians pitching ace “Rapid” Robert Feller strikes out 17 batters in a game, setting a new American League record.

• On Sept. 12, 1940, a collection of 600 prehistoric cave paintings and 1,500 engravings are discovered in a grotto near Montignac, France. The 5,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings consisted mostly of animal representations. The Lascaux grotto’s main cavern is 66 feet wide and 16 feet high. • On Sept. 14, 1964, writer John Steinbeck is presented the U.S. Medal of Freedom. Steinbeck had already received numerous honors and awards for his writing, including the 1962 Nobel Prize, and the 1939 Pulitzer Prize for “The Grapes of Wrath.” He also wrote “Tortilla Flat,” “East of Eden” and the novella “Of Mice and Men.” • On Sept. 18, 1987, cesium-137 is removed from an abandoned cancer-therapy machine in Brazil. Junkyard workers, fascinated by the glowing blue stone inside and completely unaware of its dangers, distributed pieces to friends, relatives and neighbors. Hundreds of people were eventually poisoned by radiation from the substance, and 40 contaminated homes had to be demolished. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

cut down on freezing time. Pouring the ice-cream mixture into a shallow container with lots of surface area (which has been wrapped tightly in a plastic bag and placed in the freezer for hours) is another way to get it to freeze rapidly. The only downside of this homemade mixture (if you want to call it that) is that this ice cream needs to be eaten within a week after it’s made for best quality.


Old-Fashioned Ice Cream With a Modern Twist Making ice cream at home is an old-fashioned way to have a cool summer treat. You can make ice cream at home without a machine by using a few simple techniques.

Freezing the custard-based ice-cream recipe below (or anything that goes from a liquid to a solid form) means the formation of hard ice crystals. A machine churns the ice-cream mixture constantly, breaking up the crystals. If you’re not using a machine, you can break up the ice crystals by using a spatula, whisk or hand-held mixer to create a smooth, creamy dessert. The trick to avoiding ice crystals is to use a large amount of sugar. Sugar lowers the freezing point of the ice-cream mixture so that large crystals are unable to form. Always use cooked or pasteurized eggs or an egg substitute in your ice cream to avoid any foodborne illness (food poisoning). If using a recipe with eggs, the base should be heated to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit and then cooled. This temperature will kill any salmonella, if present. Another tip to making smooth, creamy ice cream is to make sure everything you use is cold. After you make the ice-cream mixture, cover it and allow to chill overnight in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to freeze the mixture, place it into a metal container that has been wrapped tightly in a plastic bag and placed in the freezer for several hours. This will

is freezing near the edges. Stir vigorously (by hand with a spatula or whisk, or with the electric mixer or stick blender). It will likely take 3 to 4 hours to be frozen and ready to serve. The ice cream will be good for one week. *** Angela Shelf Medearis is an award-winning children’s author, a culinary historian and the author of six cookbooks. She’s known as The Kitchen Diva!
