• Dictionary Day is October 16, the birthday of Noah Webster. Webster, a 1778 graduate of Yale, began writing America’s first dictionary at age 43, wrapping up the job of 70,000 entries at age 70. He was responsible for changing some of the old English spellings, such as “colour” to “color” and “musick” to “music.”

• The National Mole Day Foundation urges you to celebrate National Mole Day on October 23. Does that mean it’s time to be kind to those furry little fellows that wreak havoc on your lawn? Not at all! It’s a day to get excited about the mole, a basic measuring unit in chemistry, and to memorize Avogadro’s number, 6.024 x 10 to the 23rd power. That’s the formula that defines the amount of atomic mass units in a gram. It’s the amount of a substance that equals the quantity containing as many units as there are atoms in 0.012 kg of Carbon-12. It might actually be easier to be kind to the furry animal!

OCTOBER OCCASIONS (continued): • October is a big month for monuments. President Grover Cleveland dedicated the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor on an October day in 1886. The statue, officially called the Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World, had been received from France the previous June in 350 separate parts and was assembled over the next four months. In October 1941, South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore was completed after 14 years of work by sculptor Gutzon Borglum and 400 workers. Unfortunately, Borglum didn’t get to see his 60-foot (18-m) carvings completed, as he died just months before the monument was done. Construction was completed on the St. Louis Arch in October 1965, following 32 months of work. Officially known as the Gateway Arch or Gateway to the West, it is the tallest manmade monument in the United States, towering 630 feet (192 m) over the city of St. Louis. When the structure was completed, the Federal Aviation Administration issued an order that any aviators who flew under the arch would receive a hefty fine and have their pilot’s license revoked. At least 10 pilots have disobeyed the edict. Only once have fliers been permitted — during the July 4th festivities of the nation’s bicentennial in 1976. • Germany’s Oktoberfest got its start in 1810, celebrating the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria to

Alexander Levin, M.D.

Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The royal couple invited the citizens of Munich to join in their wedding festivities, and the following year, all the merriment was repeated, beginning the tradition of a 16day Oktoberfest each year. The Munich commemoration is the world’s largest fair, drawing more than five million people every autumn. • October 25 is set aside as St. Crispin’s Day as a tribute to Crispin, the patron saint of shoemakers. According to legend, Crispin, who lived in Rome during the third century, preached during the day and produced shoes at night. Tradition states that he was beheaded for teaching the gospel. • On her 63rd birthday in October of 1901, retired schoolteacher Annie Edson Taylor and her cat climbed into an oak pickle barrel padded with a mattress and plunged over Niagara Falls. She was the first person to survive the ride. The barrel, held together with seven iron hoops, also contained an anvil for maintaining balance. With the goal of financial security, Taylor aimed to capitalize on her adventure. After collecting meager earnings promoting her feat, she died penniless at age 83. Although she only received a minor concussion and a small cut on her head, she said, “If it was with my dying breath, I would caution anyone against attempting the feat. I would sooner walk up to the mouth of a cannon, knowing it was going to blow me to pieces, than make another trip over the Falls.” • In October of 1908, the Chicago Cubs defeated the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. And that’s the last time they’ve won it to date; the team has gone 102 years without a championship, the longest of any major North American professional sports team. • That famous silent film “The Sheik,” starring Rudolph Valentino, premiered in October of 1921. Unfortunately, the Italian “Latin Lover,” born Rodolpho Alfonzo Rafaelo Pierre Filibert Guglielmi di Valentina d’Antonguolla, died just 10 years later at age 31 of peritonitis. And speaking of name changes, Rudolph’s wife Natacha Rambova changed hers slightly as well; she was born Winifred Hudnut! • In 1962, before London Bridge really could fall down, the city of London made plans to replace the 1831 structure, which could no longer support its heavy traffic load. As early as 1924, the east side of the bridge’s foundation was sinking under the weight. In 1968, London sold the bridge to a U.S. oil executive for $2.4 million and thus began the process of dismantling the edifice, carefully numbering each piece to help with reassembly. In October of 1971, the bridge reopened in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and is now the state’s second-biggest tourist attraction, with only the Grand Canyon drawing more visitors. • The “Crash of ‘29” came on October 29, 1929, when the New York Stock Exchange completely collapsed after several days of panic. On “Black Tuesday,” the Dow lost 23 percent of its value, wiping out billions of dollars of wealth in one day. It was the financial ruin of banks, businesses and individuals, which, with soaring unemployment rates, ushered in the 12 years of the Great Depression.


• The famous gunfight at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, in October 1881 lasted only 30 seconds, with 30 shots fired and three men killed. The Earp Brothers and Doc Holliday were up against the Clanton-McLaury gang, a group of cattle rustlers, thieves and murderers. Two McLaury brothers and Billy Clanton were killed, while Holliday and two of the Earps were wounded. The shootout didn’t really take place in the Corral, but rather in a wide alley six doors east of the Corral’s rear entrance. • The Grand Ole Opry got its start in Nashville in October of 1925 as a one-hour radio broadcast. Featured artists in those early days included The Possum Hunters, The Gully Jumpers and The Fruit Jar Drinkers.

• In 1978, at age 28, Krauthammer left his medical practice to work for the Jimmy Carter administration as a director of psychiatric research.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER If you watch the Fox News channel, you may be familiar with regular panelist Charles Krauthammer. Permanently injured as a young man, he refused to allow disability to derail his career plans. Follow along as Tidbits brings you up to date on this incredible man’s life. • By age 20, Charles Krauthammer already had an honors degree in political science and economics in hand and was furthering his education as a Commonwealth Scholar

Buying All • He began branching out into journalism, first as a u.S. Silver CoinS contributor, then later a regular writer and editor at The New Republic magazine. The 1980 presidential campaign PAying ToP brought the opportunity to serve as a speech writer for Vice President Walter Mondale during his run for the executive DollAr!!!! office. • Krauthammer’s journalism career further expanded when he began writing essays for Time magazine in 1983. He nabbed 1984’s “National Magazine Award for Essays and Criticism.” The following year, The Washington Post began featuring a weekly column by Krauthammer, which led to the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. He was responsible for coining the term “The Reagan Doctrine,” referring to the strategy implemented by the Reagan Administration to oppose the Soviet Union’s global attempts to promote communism. • Financial Times magazine has declared Krauthammer “the most influential commentator in America.” Considered an expert in the area of foreign policy, bioethics and electoral politics, Krauthammer is a panelist on the PBS weekly news program “Inside Washington” and does a nightly stint as a political commentator on Fox News. During his broadcasts, you might see him twist and turn in his wheelchair as he seeks to relieve some of the pain he experiences on a daily basis.

at Oxford. It was then on to Harvard to attend medical school. • At age 22, as a freshman in pre-med, Krauthammer broke his neck in a diving accident and was paralyzed. A hospital visit from Harvard’s associate dean of students helped direct the rest of Krauthammer’s life. Although confined to a wheelchair, he was determined to stay in class. The dean arranged for his professors to give bedside lectures, using the ceiling as a screen for the slide presentations.

• Krauthammer is president of the charitable organization The Krauthammer Foundation and also serves as chairman of Pro Musica Hebraica, an organization devoted to recovering and bringing lost or neglected Jewish music to concert halls. • At the time of his accident, Charles Krauthammer pushed himself beyond measure in order to “keep disaster from turning into ruin.” It’s apparent that he triumphs over his disability every single day.

This week, let’s see what makes all these October-born celebrities unique.

• As the Nazis were bombing Great Britain in October of 1940, Julia Lennon was giving birth to her son John in a Liverpool hospital. She gave him the middle name of Winston, in honor of Prime Minister Churchill. John Lennon’s Aunt Mimi gifted him with a guitar when he was 16, telling him, “The guitar’s all very well as a hobby, John, but you’ll never make a living out of it.” Before long, Lennon had formed his first band, The Quarrymen. Paul McCartney joined up in 1957, followed by George Harrison in 1958. By 1960, they were known as The Beatles. Lennon was returning home from a recording session for a new album when he was gunned down in December of 1980. The album was released after his death as “Milk and Honey.” • Although perhaps best known these days as the stepfather of the Kardashians, Bruce Jenner’s first notoriety came as a result of his Olympic gold medal decathlon feats. He set a world record in the event at the 1976 Montreal games, after a bronze medal in 1972. He has been involved in a variety of endeavors since that time. Even though Jenner hadn’t played basketball since high school, the year after the Olympics, the Kansas City Kings selected him in the 139th pick of the NBA draft. Jenner opted for a career in TV movies and series work, as well as game shows and “The American Sportsman.” He was a successful racecar driver during the 1980s; he plugged the Stair Climber Plus on an infomercial; and he began a career as a motivational speaker and TV sports commentator. In addition to his role on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” he owns Bruce Jenner Aviation, which sells aircraft supplies. Through it all, Jenner has lived with dyslexia and has appeared on the adult educational TV series “Learn to Read.”

• Krauthammer underwent a year of rehab in a Harvard teaching hospital to enable him to continue his studies. Because he did not relearn the skill of handwriting for another three years, he was allowed to take his tests orally. He earned his M.D. in 1975 and began a career as chief resident in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. During his tenure there, he and a colleague discovered a mental illness related to bipolar disease, resulting in highly acclaimed medical journal writings.

Yorker, tracing his Manhattan ancestors back to 1624; two former NYC mayors are among them. Although he was listed in the Social Register at a young age, that didn’t keep him from working odd jobs such as cab driver, busboy, supermarket produce manager, wine store manager and theater usher. Many members of Chase’s family have been involved in the arts, including his book editor/writer father, concert pianist mother, opera singer grandmother, artist grandfather and painter great-uncle. As valedictorian of his high school class, he had ambitions of becoming a doctor. But his comedic nature won out, even resulting in expulsion from Haverford College for bringing a cow into a campus building. Although famous as one of “Saturday Night Live’s” original cast members, he was actually hired on the show as a writer, and became a cast member during rehearsals.

• John Mayer is not only a Grammy-winning, multi-platinum-album-selling singer, he is also a chronometrophile. That means he is an avid collector of watches, and he has a collection of timepieces worth about $20 million. He also loves to collect sneakers! Mayer began playing guitar at age 13 on an instrument his father rented. A medical emergency when he was 17 got him started as a songwriter. After being stricken with cardiac arrhythmia, Mayer spent several days in the hospital and, in his words, “That was the moment the songwriter in me was born.” He wrote his first song the night he arrived home from the hospital.

The Building Blocks of Life People build muscle and other body proteins from amino acids, which come from the proteins they eat. A varied diet of beans, lentils, grains, and vegetables contains all of the essential amino acids. It was once thought that various plant foods had to be eaten together to get their full protein value, but current research suggests this is not the case. Many nutrition authorities, including the American Dietetic Association, believe protein needs can easily be met by consuming a variety of plant protein sources over an entire day. To get the best benefit from the protein you consume, it is important to eat enough calories to meet your energy needs.

The Trouble with Too Much Protein The average American diet contains meat and dairy products. As a result, it is often too high in protein. This can lead to a number of serious health problems: • Kidney Disease: When people eat too much protein, they take in more nitrogen than they need. This places a strain on the kidneys, which must expel the extra nitrogen through urine. People with kidney disease are encouraged to eat low-protein diets. Such a diet reduces the excess levels of nitrogen and can also help prevent kidney disease. • Cancer: Although fat is the dietary substance most often singled out for increasing cancer risk, protein also plays a role. Populations who eat meat regularly are at increased risk for colon cancer, and researchers believe that the fat, protein, natural carcinogens, and absence of fiber in meat all play roles. The 1997 report of the World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research, Food, Nutrition, and the Prevention of Cancer, noted that meaty, high-protein diets were linked with some types of cancer. • Osteoporosis and Kidney Stones: Diets that are rich in animal protein cause people to excrete more calcium than normal through their kidneys and increase the risk of osteoporosis. Countries with lower-protein diets have lower rates of osteoporosis and hip fractures.

In the past, some people believed one could never get too much protein. In the early 1900s, Americans were told to eat well over 100 grams of protein a day. And as recently as the 1950s, health-conscious people were encouraged to boost their protein intake. Today, some diet books encourage high-protein intake for weight loss, although Americans tend to take in twice the amount of protein they need already. And while individuals following such a diet have sometimes had short-term success in losing weight, they are often unaware of the health risks associated with a high-protein diet. Excess protein has been linked with osteoporosis, kidney disease, calcium stones in the urinary tract, and some cancers.

Increased calcium excretion increases risk for kidney stones. Researchers in England found that when people added about 5 ounces of fish (about 34 grams of protein) to a normal diet, the risk of forming urinary tract stones increased by as much as 250 percent. For a long time it was thought that athletes needed much more protein than other people. The truth is that athletes, even those who strength-train, need only slightly more protein, which is easily obtained in the larger servings athletes require for their higher caloric intake. Vegetarian diets are great for athletes. To consume a diet that contains enough, but not too much, protein, simply replace animal products with grains, vegetables, legumes (peas, beans, and lentils), and fruits. As long as one is eating a variety of plant foods in sufficient quantity to maintain one’s weight, the body gets plenty of protein.

by Samantha Weaver • It was 20th-century Canadian-American economist John Kenneth Galbraith who made the following sage observation: “Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.â€? • The original jack-o’-lanterns were turnips, not pumpkins. The custom began in Ireland, where residents hollowed out and carved faces into large turnips for the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain. The turnips, placed on windowsills, were believed to ward off evil spirits. In Scotland, young men would dress in white and blacken their faces in an imitation of the dead. • Peter the Great was known during his reign in the late 17th and early 18th centuries as “Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias.â€? In order to raise money, he taxed just about anything he could think of, including births, burials, chimneys and even beards. • By law, if you are planning to build in Washington, D.C., the edifice must be no taller than the Capitol building. • You probably know that physicist Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize. You might not realize, however, that the prize was for his work on the photoelectric effect of light, not for his more famous theory of relativity. • If you are like the average American woman, you will spend a grand total of 60 days of your life in the practice of removing body hair. • In 2010, the record for the world’s largest pumpkin was broken. The Atlantic giant pumpkin, grown by Chris Stevens of New Richmond, Wisc., weighed in at the Stillwater Harvest Fest at a whopping 1,810.5 pounds. *** Thought for the Day:

goodies being handed out, as they’re not healthy (and can even be poisonous) and they could ingest dangerous items like candy wrappers. - Beth in Madison, Wisc. DEAR BETH: Thank you for the reminder! Halloween is a fun holiday for kids and families, but it can be a dangerous time for your pets if precautions aren’t taken.

--Keep candy bowls and treats on a high counter or shelf where pets can’t reach. --Monitor your pets at all times as trick-or-treaters wander the neighborhood so they don’t ingest anything harmful, and to keep approaching children safe.

Keep Pets Safe This Halloween DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Last Halloween, our dog ‘Valiant’ ran into the room as my kids were tearing into their trick-or-treat candy and ate several wrappers and a couple of pieces of chocolate. We had to rush him to the emergency pet hospital in another town. Fortunately, he only had to stay overnight for observation and he passed the wrappers without incident, but the veterinary assistant said that they see incidents like this every year at Halloween.

--If you’re having a Halloween party or if your pet is very excitable, confine it to a quiet room or kennel cage with food, toys and a blanket or cushion until the festivities are over. Check in periodically. --If you see or suspect your pet has ingested chocolate, wrappers or any other dangerous item, contact the veterinarian or emergency pet clinic immediately. Send your questions or comments to:, 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

HOLLYWOOD -- “A horse is a horse, of course, of course, / And no one can talk to a horse of course / That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed,” went the theme song of the 1960s TV series “Mr. Ed.” The show, about the first talking horse, ran from 1961-66, and starred Alan Young as his owner, Wilbur, and Connie Hines as his wife, with Allan Lane providing the voice of Mr. Ed. In 2004, a film version with David Alan Basche as Wilbur and “The Jefferson’s” Sherman Hensley as the voice of Mr. Ed came and went unnoticed. Now David Friendly, best known for “Little Miss Sunshine,” and Fox 2000 are planning to produce a new Mr. Ed movie. No casting mentioned as yet, but considering that Friendly produced “Doctor Doolittle” with Eddie Murphy and “Big Momma’s House” 1, 2 and 3 with Martin Lawrence, it’s probably a safe bet that one or the other of those two comic stars will wind up playing Wilbur! *** James Cameron and 20th Century Fox have invested $18 million to turn the second-highest grossing movie of all time, “Titanic” (1997), into a 3D spectacle. Cameron estimates it will be better than most conversions: “It will be 90 percent of what would have been if it was shot in 3D.” The big question is, of course, will moviegoers

Hollywood insiders always claim movies about Hollywood don’t do well at the box office, but Oscarwinning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, who won for “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004), is writing, producing and directing the musical project “Frank or Francis,” which has Steve Carell as Frank and Jack Black as Francis, and Nicolas Cage and Oscar-winner Kevin Kline in, not one but two, supporting roles. If you never caught Kline in “In and Out,” rent it. It’s a laugh-riot classic! *** As reported earlier, Kiefer Sutherland will return to series TV at his “24” network, Fox. Fox has ordered 13 episodes of “Touch,” in which Kiefer plays a widowed, single father of an 11-year-old mute/autistic son who communicates, not with words, but with numbers, and has a genius for connecting seemingly unrelated events. Adding star power to the mix is Danny Glover, as a professor and expert on children possessing special gifts relating to numbers. Fox should have shown its confidence in Kiefer Sutherland’s drawing power by ordering not 13, but “24” episodes!

During the day, take frequent breaks to lie down with your legs propped up higher than your heart. When you sit, rest your legs on the seat of a chair put in front of you. Walk as much as you can during the day. The contracting leg muscles push fluid back into circulation.

Foot Swelling a Sign of Heart Problems? DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a problem with my feet swelling. They get so big that they hurt when I walk. My doctor is puzzled. He thinks maybe it’s due to my heart pills, but he can’t change them -- my heart doctor has to. I have had two heart attacks, bypass surgery and a defibrillator put in my chest. When I’m in bed, the swelling goes down to almost normal. When I am up, it returns, even if I am sitting. I’d appreciate any suggestions. -- E.L. ANSWER: I believe I’m safe in saying your problem is chronic congestive heart failure. Your heart is pumping so weakly that blood circulates sluggishly. When you’re up or when you’re sitting, gravity pulls fluid out of your leg’s vessels, and it is the cause of your swelling. In the horizontal position in bed, gravity doesn’t have this effect, and the fluid stays in blood vessels. The swelling is called edema (e-DEE-muh).

Limit the salt you eat; salt makes the body retain fluid. Read food labels. Most of our salt intake comes from the foods we eat, not from adding salt at the table or in cooking. But don’t do either. Your total daily salt intake should be less than 5,700 mg, preferably 3,800 mg. If salt is on the label as “sodium,” your total daily intake should be 2,300 mg or less. A better goal is 1,500 mg. Tell your heart doctor about your swelling. He might make changes in your medicines either by increasing the dose or switching to other medicines that make the heart pump with more force. There are other causes of edema, but this is the one that seems to fit you best.

I don’t have stones. I have something called a liver hemangioma. My doctor says I don’t need any treatment. I never heard of this and wonder what your thoughts are. -- P.K. ANSWER: A hemangioma is a small, ball-shaped mass of blood vessels. If 100 people had a liver scan, seven would be found to have a hemangioma. Women develop them more often than men do. They do not become cancers. They’re rarely a source of constant pain, unless they grow quite large and press on adjacent tissue. They don’t cause attacks of pain. Have you found out what causes your pain? *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

DONOHUE: Several bouts of stomach pain brought me to the doctor. The pain is located in my upper right side. The doctor was certain I was having gallbladder attacks due to stones. She sent me for an ultrasound test of my gallbladder.

Don’t Let Foreclosure Stop You from Reclaiming Your American Dream! We all know the obvious consequences of facing foreclosure. Losing your home, facing a deficiency judgment for the difference between the value of your home and the amount of your mortgage, and dealing with damaged credit are a few; but unfortunately there is so much more associated with this process than just your finances. Emotionally, losing a home can be extremely difficult. Often times, people build up a veritable carousel of dreams in their mind composed of all the good things they expect to happen in their home as they grow older. Feeling hopeless as you seemingly watch those hopes and dreams slowly slip away only adds to the emotional loss. Couple the financial and emotional loss with the newly released scientific research that reveals a rise in stress related physical ailments discussed in a recent New York Times article titled “Foreclosures are Killing Us,” and it’s easy to see that foreclosure is not something to be taken lightly. So what do you do? There have been several stories in the news about so called loan modification experts who will either do nothing but take your money in exchange for a slew of ‘too good to be true’ promises, or who will, possibly in good faith but still unwisely so, submit your private financial information to a bank numerous times hoping the bank will respond to a plea for help. The overwhelming failure of the federal government’s modification program only serves to highlight the fact that an approach which relies solely on corresponding with banks to ask for a modification is unfortunately rarely feasible. Moreover, divulging your financial history is not only irrelevant to any legal issue at hand but it is also typically not in your best interest to do so. The larger concern is the servicers’ repeated requests for financial information under the guise of a loan modification might instead just be a fishing expedition to see if you have any assets which would be recoverable in a deficiency. However, there is hope. Thanks to a handful of highly

better off in a workout than they will be post foreclosure; with one of these highly trained professionals, you have a chance to substantially alter your circumstances. It can be a new day in court for homeowners armed with the right representation but take your time before jumping in with just any lawyer. Foreclosure defense and all its inter-related topics is part of a burgeoning new area of law. In addition to exploring all possible legal defenses and counterclaims that can be used in protecting your home, there are also several alternative actions a well-trained attorney can help you with in order to possibly eliminate your liability to the bank and/or prevent them from obtaining a deficiency against you. Be sure you ask for a lawyer’s credentials before signing up, see if they offer a free consultation and during that consultation ask questions to make sure they are well versed in real estate law, bankruptcy, civil procedure and all of the various state and federal consumer protection statutes. With the forthright, aggressive and well-informed approach from a true legal professional, you have a greater chance of saving your home, getting your finances in order, and getting back on track to reclaiming your piece of the American dream!

 Half cup dry short-grain brown rice 
 Half cup dry lentils 
 Half teaspoon salt 
 2 cups water 
 1 medium celery stalk, finely chopped 
 1 small carrot, finely chopped 
 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard 
 1 teaspoon garlic powder 
 Vegetable oil spray In a medium saucepan, combine onion, rice, lentils, salt, and water. Bring to a slow simmer, then cover and cook for about 50 minutes, or until rice and lentils are tender and all the water has been absorbed. Add carrot, celery, mustard, and garlic powder to the hot lentil mixture. Stir to mix, and then chill completely (you can make the patties while the mixture is still warm, but forming is much easier once it is chilled). Form mixture into 3-inch patties.

A: Taylor Kitsch played Tim Riggins, the troubled, womanizing former fullback/ running back of the Dillon Panthers who turned himself in to police for running a chop shop with his brother, Billy. Since “FNL” ended, Taylor, 30, has been super busy. He stars in a handful of movies coming out soon and/or in production, including playing the title character in “John Carter”; Alex Hopper in “Battleship,” a feature-film adaption of the popular kids’ board game; and “Savages,” a crime drama directed by Oliver Stone. *** Q: I was really getting into “The Playboy Club” when it was suddenly dropped from the TV schedule. Is it on hiatus, or has it been canceled? -- George F., Harrisburg, Pa. A: It would seem that NBC’s much-ballyhooed crime drama couldn’t hold an audience’s attention as well as the Playboy Bunnies themselves could back in the time this show was set (1961).

If you’re keeping score, NBC’s “Free Agents,” starring Hank Azaria, was canceled soon after “Playboy.” As of this writing, “Charlie’s Angels” has been panned by most critics and its ratings have not been up to par, making it a good bet to be the next show on the chopping block. *** Q: Can you tell me if two of my favorite comedies, IFC’s “Portlandia” and “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” with be back for new seasons? Please say yes! -Jennifer G., via e-mail A: Yes, both show will be back for their respective second season on IFC this January.

At one bank, if you deal with a teller even once, there’s a fee for the month.

Navigating the Maze of New Bank Fees Hurt by the loss of funds from new laws reining in fees, banks have looked for loopholes. Now they’re rushing to cash in on different ways to extract dollars from the wallets of consumers. The variety of new restrictions can make it difficult to determine what fees you’ll likely incur.

At the same time, with other banks there will be a fee to access your account online. The only way to avoid it is to sign up for direct deposit of

Long gone are the rewards for using your debit card for purchases, and a monthly fee has taken its place. At one bank, you can still receive points only if you have automatic deposits directly to savings. Another bank will start charging a monthly fee of $5 if a debit card is used. Still another bank will let you use your debit card for free if you keep $20,000 in your account. At another bank, checking accounts that used to be free will now be charged a fee, even for a basic stripped-down account. To have the fee waived, you’re required to make deposits of more than $500 a month and keep a high average daily balance. At one bank that minimum deposit is $6,000. With some banks, the minimum monthly balance can be the combined total of checking and savings. At another bank, you’ll pay a $20 monthly fee if you don’t keep a balance of $15,000.

Halloween can be a spooky good time for children and adults alike, but the cost of costumes can be downright scary. When I was a child, my brother and I dressed as a pirate and a gypsy, respectively, for several years, as they were costumes that could be put together using things you might find around the house. This week’s focus is on inexpensive or FREE Halloween costumes. Happy Halloween! • Most anyone can come up with a ghost costume (basically, a white sheet with eyes cut out and cut off at the bottom so itÕs not too long). How about dressing up that ghost with costume jewelry and makeup, or a mustache/beard drawn on, with a tie and carrying a briefcase labeled ÒScare CorporationÓ? Use hats or other dress-up accessories to make Dr. Ghost or Officer Ghost. The possibilities are endless. • A basic scarecrow needs only a flannel shirt, a pair of jeans and socks, a floppy hat and some straw. Stuff wadded-up plastic bags into shirt or pants to fill, then use rubber bands to secure straw at the cuffs. Paint on a funny face. (Thanks to J.R. in Illinois.) • Be an over-the-top tourist: A loud Hawaiian-style shirt paired with a pair of shorts, perhaps socks with sandals?

Carry a camera on a strap around your neck. Use a small carry-on bag as your treat bag, or decorate a paper sack by gluing on squares cut from a map. • Be Static Cling! Use safety pins to pin a variety of small items to your outfit -- think socks, scarves, even a pair of undies if you dare! Tease hair until itÕs standing straight up, and use hairspray to keep it that way. • If you have a box, you can cut arm and leg holes in it and draw a grid on all sides. Fill in the squares with different colors to make a RubikÕs Cube. (Thanks to F.S. in North Carolina.) Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

A Plumber’s Snake? What’s That? Q: One thing my uncle recommended when I moved into my recently purchased house is something called a plumber’s snake. Just what is that? I presume it’s for getting into pipes or something. -- Tammy in Des Moines, Iowa A: You’re right, Tammy, it does have something to do with getting into pipes. Specifically, a plumber’s snake -- more professionally known as a hand auger -- is a handheld tool used for clearing clogs in drain lines. It consists of a flexible tube with a spring coil on one end, attached to a hand crank at the other end. The tube is inserted into the affected drain until the clog is reached; then the hand crank is turned so that the clogging material gets caught in the spring coil and is pulled out along with the tubing. The beauty of the hand auger -- there’s also a larger version called a closet auger or toilet auger, specifically for toilets

TIDBITS - Please Support Our Advertisers -- is that it can clear many types of clogs without using chemicals to break up the material or using a drill that could break through the pipe. ®

Using the hand auger takes a little bit of practice. It’s not hard to use, but you’re fishing blind through the drainpipe, and figuring out the difference between a bend in the pipe and the actual clog can take a few tries. So, for example, let’s say you’re clearing a clog in a sink drain. You’ve either removed the trap (the U-bend pipe under the sink) or, if the trap has this, unscrewed the bolt at the bottom of the trap and let the water drain into a bucket. But the clog doesn’t clear (meaning it’s a little further back in the drain line). With the trap removed or the drain bolt unscrewed: --Loosen the auger lock (the bolt sticking up at the feeder end of the auger) and feed the cable into the drain line. --When you meet resistance, find out if you’re simply at a bend in the pipe. Feed out a few inches more cable so you have some extra sticking out of the pipe. Tighten down the auger lock. Slowly turn the auger handle clockwise, pushing slightly. If it’s a bend in the line, the resistance will stop and you can continue feeding cable. --If the resistance doesn’t let up, you may have located a clog. Turn the handle a few more times to try and snag

October 21, 2011 • 13 the clog material. Then, loosen the auger lock. Continue turning the handle clockwise to reel in the cable. --If you meet solid resistance and then the cable slowly feeds in, with continuous resistance, you likely have a soap clog. Slowly continue to bore through the soap clog until resistance lessens. Then, retrieve the cable by loosening the auger lock and turning the handle clockwise. Once you’ve taken care of the clog, reconnect the trap. Run hot water through the pipe, which will flush out loose debris or help break up that soap clog.

HOME TIP: Keep drains healthy with this nontoxic solution: combine 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup salt and 1/4 cup cream of tartar. Pour 1/4 cup of this mixture into each drain in the house, and follow with 2 cups boiling water. Repeat weekly.
