• Benjamin Franklin came up with the idea of publishing America’s ďŹ rst magazine in 1741. He put his plans in place, but just three days before his American Magazine came out in print, Andrew Bradford beat him to the punch with General Magazine. Perhaps the nation wasn’t ready for such publications, because Bradford’s magazine lasted just three issues, and Franklin ceased printing his after six issues. A few others, including Christian History in 1743, tried their hand at publishing, but it wasn’t until 1821 that the ďŹ rst truly successful U.S. magazine, The Saturday Evening Post, hit the stands.

MAGAZINES (continued): may be best remembered for its covers that featured paintings by artist Norman Rockwell. Rockwell’s first cover was in May, 1916, and over the next 50 years, he provided more than 300 paintings for the magazine’s cover. • National Geographic with its familiar yellow border has been published continuously since the first issue in 1888. Its articles about geography, history, and world culture are read by 8.3 million people in 36 languages around the world every month. National Geographic published its first wildlife photographs in 1906, and its first color photo appeared in 1914. • Recently graduated from Yale in 1923, Henry Luce borrowed $86,000 from relatives to start up TIME magazine. TIME was designed with news summaries that “busy men” could read weekly in under an hour. The first issue’s cover featured retired Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Joseph G. Cannon. In July of that year, a woman was on the cover for the first time, a popularw actress of the day, Italian Eleanora Duse. Starting out with 12,000 subscribers, by 1963, after 40 years of publication, TIME had a circulation of 3,600,000 in 150 countries. Today it has the world’s largest circulation for a weekly news magazine with over 25 million readers. • In 1928, TIME began its famous “Man of the Year” issue, with Charles Lindbergh as the first person of distinction. This individual is chosen as the person who “for good or ill” has most affected the course of the year, with “ill” choices including Adolf Hitler. In 1936, the title became “Person of the Year,” when American socialite Wallis Simpson, the woman for whom King Edward VIII of England abdicated his throne, was chosen. TIME’s December 31, 1999 issued named Albert Einstein as the Person of the Century.

• LIFE magazine debuted in 1936 and is credited with establishing photojournalism. Publisher Henry Luce had already achieved great success with TIME, and wanted a publication that told the story in pictures. LIFE’s first cover featured a photo of Montana’s Fort Peck Dam, and the issue sold 380,000 copies. Just four months later, circulation was up over one million copies a week. LIFE was published weekly for 37 years. • Henry Luce’s next success story was Sports Illustrated, which debuted in 1954. His advisors strongly cautioned him about launching a magazine strictly devoted to sports. Two previous magazines of the same name had already failed during the 1930s and 1940s. The first issue’s featured article was about Roger Bannister, who had broken the four-minute-mile barrier three months earlier. The cover was a photo of Milwaukee Braves third baseman Eddie Mathews. Michael Jordan holds the record for the most appearances on the cover of SI, with 50 covers. The team that’s been honored the most times is the New York Yankees, with a record 71. Over 23 million people read Sports Illustrated every week. • The Lady’s Magazine is considered the first significant women’s magazine. First published in London in 1770, it contained essays on female virtues, fashion advice, hints for wives and mothers, medicinal recipes, and embroidery patterns. Upwards of 150,000 American women were reading Godey’s Lady’s Book when the Civil War broke out, making it the most widely circulated magazine in the country. • McCall’s was initially established as a women’s magazine called The Queen in 1873. It was renamed in 1897 and remained such until 2001 when Rosie O’Donnell became editorial director and changed the title to Rosie. Rosie lasted a little over a year. Female baby boomers may remember Betsy McCall paper dolls printed in McCall’s beginning in May, 1951.

• We started reading Better Homes and Gardens in 1922, Ladies’ Home Journal in 1883, Good Housekeeping in 1885, Redbook in 1903, Woman’s Day in 1931, followed by Family Circle in 1932. • Adolescent girls got their very own magazine in 1944, when Seventeen hit the stands, bringing fashion, beauty, and dating tips. Early cover girls included Carol Lynley, Twiggy, Cybil Shepherd, Olga Korbut, and a 13-year-old Brooke Shields. • The first issue of TV Guide was released in April of 1953, a comprehensive listing of the week’s television programs, TV-related news, celebrity interviews, program reviews, and crossword puzzles. Actress Lucille Ball was on the cover holding her newborn son, Desi Arnaz, Jr., whose birth had been written into the storyline of the popular sitcom I Love Lucy. • In March of 1974, you could have purchased the inaugural issue of People magazine for 35 cents. The beautiful 29-year-old Mia Farrow was on the cover, the star of the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby. In 1985, the magazine introduced their new feature “Sexiest Man Alive,” with 29-year-old Mel Gibson capturing the first title. Since then, People has created their “World’s Most Beautiful People” and “Best & Worst Dressed” special issues. About 47 million people read People every week. • Although magazines derive about half of their income from advertising (the other half from subscriptions and single copy sales), a few magazines do not accept advertising. Consumer Reports does not want to give the impression that their product evaluations are influenced in any way by an advertiser, and have no paid advertising. • The list of leading magazine advertisers includes Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal, Johnson & Johnson, Toyota, and Nestle.

ALEX TREBEK The answer is: “He has been the host of the game show Jeopardy! since 1984.” Who is Alex Trebek? Let’s take a closer look at this interesting “category”! • Alex Trebek’s father immigrated from Ukraine as a young child, settling in Ontario with his family. His marriage to a French-Canadian woman produced Alex in 1940. When Alex graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in philosophy in 1961, he used his experience from the college’s English Debating Society to land a job in broadcasting. The first step in his famous career was as a newscaster and sportscaster with the Canadian Broadcasting Company, Canada’s premier network at that time. • In 1966, Trebek made a dramatic change from the journalism realm to hosting game shows. His first gig was the Canadian game show Reach for the Top, a position he held for seven years. In 1973, Trebek crossed the border to host his first U.S. game show, NBC’s The Wizard of Odds. The Wizard was short-lived, however, and the following year, Trebek became host of High Rollers. Between High Rollers and his selection as the new host of Jeopardy! in 1984, he had added Double Dare, The $128,000 Question, and Pitfall to his resume. • After three years of hosting Jeopardy!, in 1987, Trebek added another game show to his schedule, Classic Concentration, hosting both shows simultaneously. In 1991, he made history by serving as the host to three game shows at once, when he took over as the host of To Tell the Truth. By the end of that year, Concentration and Truth had ended their series, and Trebek was back to one program. • Jeopardy! has won 30 Emmy Awards, and Alex Trebek has been awarded five Emmys for Outstanding Game Show Host. During the 2004-2005 season, contestant Ken Jennings set the record for the most consecutive games, winning 74

than $2.5 million. Speaking about Jennings’ streak, Alex said, “I spent more time with him than I did with my wife during that period.” • Trebek films Jeopardy! two days a week, arriving at the studio around 6:30 AM. Five shows are taped each day, ending about 4:30 PM. About 25 million viewers tune into the program each week. • This famous host’s life isn’t all about games! Trebek also hosts the National Geographic Bee and the Great Canadian Geography Challenge. In 1996, he was an Olympic torchbearer in Jacksonville, Florida, along the journey to Atlanta, Georgia. Trebek became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1998. You can find his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame near that of Ann-Margret and Vincent Price. Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto features Trebek’s maple leaf. • Trebek says he does a crossword puzzle every day in an attempt to stave off the dangers of Alzheimer’s Disease. Not surprisingly, he’s fluent in French, but he also speaks some German, Italian, Spanish, and Russian. He and his wife own a 700-acre thoroughbred horse farm, Creston Farms, near Templeton, California. It’s rumored that he will retire from Jeopardy! at the end of his 32nd season in 2016. Trebek offers this advice to others, “Take your job seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously.” •January 3, 2014 • 3

JANUARY EVENTS There are lots of things to celebrate during the month of January! Let’s take a look at a few things taking place this month. • January is National Polka Music Month. It commemorates a genre of dance music that had its origins in the mid-1800s in Bohemia, which is now part of today’s Czech Republic. The word “polka” has its origins in the Czech language word pulka, meaning “half-step,” denoting the quick shift from one foot to the other. The polka was introduced into ballrooms in Prague in 1835 and by 1840, it had spread to Paris. A variety of instruments are played in traditional polka music, depending on the culture, including the clarinet, trumpet, accordion, banjo, and the tuba, whose “oom-pah” notes are often associated with the polka. The state of Wisconsin has designated the polka its official state dance, and “The Beer Barrel Polka” is played during the seventh inning stretch at the Milwaukee Brewers games and at half-time during the Milwaukee Bucks games. • This is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, a time to learn more about one of the leading causes of blindness. Unfortunately, the damage to vision can occur so gradually, you may not notice any loss of vision until the disease is already advanced. Abnormally high pressure within the eye is usually the cause of the damage, with symptoms ranging from blurred vision and halos around lights to eye pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Early detection is the key to protecting your vision, with pressure tests recommended every one to two years after the age of 40. • Not surprisingly, January is Get Organized Month, just in time for your New Year’s resolutions. Professional organizers say the first step is to organize your clutter into two piles, one for saving and the other for throwing out. It’s best to clean out your belongings before you think about organizing – don’t waste your time organizing stuff you don’t really need! The key to staying organized, experts say, is keeping things where they belong. Every object should have a consistent place where it is normally kept. • It’s National Oatmeal Month, the perfect time to adjust your diet to include a healthy dose of oats. Oats contain a type of fiber known as beta-glucan that has been proven to lower cholesterol by up to 23%. People who eat oats have less coronary heart disease, and their risk of Type 2 diabetes is substantially lowered. You can also lower your risk for colon cancer! Beta-glucan also contributes to a healthier immune system, enhancing the ability of the body’s immune cells to eliminate bacteria. And if that’s not enough, oats also help decrease asthma symptoms.

619 N. 21 Avenue Hollywood, Fl. 33020 • January is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month. Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. One out of every seven people entering the hospital will use blood. A single pint can be split into platelets, plasma, and red blood cells, and has the capability to save three lives. There are two types of donations – an “allogeneic,” or “homologous” donation occurs when a donor gives blood to a bank, blood given to an unknown recipient, while a “directed” donation is specifically marked for a certain individual, perhaps a family member or friend. Less than 10% of the U.S. population donates blood regularly.

Q: Like the rest of the world, I was so shocked to hear that Paul Walker had died in a car crash. I saw his last movie, "Hours," the other day, and he was so good in it. I know he was working on the next "Fast and Furious" movie when he died. Any chance they'll still release it? -- Jimmy T., Oceanside, Calif. A: Production on "Fast and Furious 7" was shut down after Paul's death, with 60 percent of the movie having been shot. It wasn't clear what they would do. Would they cancel the movie? Use CGI for some of his remaining scenes? Cut him out all together? Then just before Christmas, Universal released this official statement about "FF7," along with a release date: "Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of 'Fast and Furious 7,' which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 10, 2015." So, Paul will be in the movie, and you can bet millions of people can't wait to see him in his final role.

*** Q: Can you tell me if or when "The Americans" will return for another season? -- Ginnie F., via email A: FX recently announced that the spy drama -- which centers on the Cold War era of the 1980s -- starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys will return for 13 episodes come February. (As of this writing, I don't have an exact date.)

Stubby served overseas for 18 months and saw action in 17 battles. On more than one occasion he sniffed out surprise attacks, saving his regiment. He was known for locating wounded soldiers on the field, and he even once caught a German spy. He was the most decorated dog of the Great War, and he was promoted to sergeant for his combat service -- the only dog to be so honored. After the war, Sgt.

If Vivien Leigh had made only two films, "Gone with the Wind" and "Streetcar Named Desire," she still would have managed to achieve film immortality. Her first love was the stage, but it was her luminous intensity in motion pictures that helped establish her lasting reputation. When Vivien Leigh walked into a room, her aura triggered a magnetism that drew people in and left them spellbound. Kendra Bean's biography of Leigh is the first to have utilized the Laurence Olivier Archives that features an invaluable collection of personal letters and documents ranging from interview transcripts to film contracts and even medical records. Because of this access, Bean's book is the first to examine in such intimate detail the fascinating, troubled and often misunderstood life of Leigh. Vivien Mary Hartley was born in 1913 in India, the daughter of a British military officer. When the Hartley family returned to England in 1931, Vivien was enrolled at the Royal Academy Dramatic Arts in London. She married a barrister, Herbert Leigh Holman, a year later. The marriage didn't last, but Vivien used his

middle name professionally. After several minor roles, she was cast in a play, "Mark of Virtue," in 1935, and it was during its run that Vivien met Laurence Oliver. The chemistry between them was especially evident in their first film together, "Fire Over England" in 1937. Oliver was at work in Hollywood on "Wuthering Heights." It was during this period that Vivien came to the attention of David Selznick, who cast her in the role that made her an international star, Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone with the Wind." Leigh's manic depression and ill health marred her career and even ended her marriage to Oliver in 1961. Bean documents the highs and lows of Leigh's life and career with clarity and sensitivity. The incredible images -- many published for the first time, -- add just the right touch. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Fiber is a nutrient that helps regulate your digestive system, and increasing your intake could help alleviate constipation and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Fiber also helps keep your cholesterol levels healthy by preventing cholesterol from being absorbed into your bloodstream, which reduces your risk of developing heart disease. Additionally, high-ďŹ ber foods keep you feeling full, since they are digested slowly -- which is important for weight control. Black-eyed peas make a good addition to soups, stews and salads and also are a healthy side dish. They are available dried, frozen and canned. Dried black-eyed peas are usually the best bargain; however, using rinsed and drained canned peas or frozen and thawed blackeyed peas in a recipe also are a good deal. Dip into these recipes for Texas Black-Eye Pea "Caviar" and Cheesy Black-Eye Peas. It's a great way to start off your New Year!

TEXAS BLACK-EYE PEA "CAVIAR" If you're looking for a delicious and healthy dip for couch-potato snacking or as a treat for your guests during the next big game, serve up some black-eyed peas. Blackeyed peas are actually a bean. They get their names from their characteristic appearance. They are white legumes with a small black dot resembling an eye. Black-eyed peas are included in the "Meat and Beans" section of the Food Guide Pyramid, created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The bean can be used as an alterative protein source to meat. In fact, many vegetarians use legumes like black-eyed peas to substitute for meat when planning meals. One serving of black-eyed peas is equal to one-half cup and contains 70 calories. They are a low-calorie option when served without additional condiments. The majority of calories come from carbohydrate sources (16 grams). Each serving also contains three grams of protein. The beans do not contain any fat or cholesterol. Black-eyed peas are especially rich sources of potassium, zinc and iron. One of the main health beneďŹ ts of black-eyed peas is their high ďŹ ber content. One-half cup of dry black-eyed peas that are cooked have 5.6 grams of ďŹ ber, while a 1/2 cup of canned black-eyed peas contains 4 grams. These amounts will vary among brands. •January 3, 2014 • 7

EXERCISE OFFERS SOME SURPRISING BENEFITS Just in time for New Year's resolutions come multiple studies about the surprising beneďŹ ts of exercise. One recent study even concludes that in some cases, exercise is more effective than prescription drugs. In a U.K. study reported in the British Journal of Medicine, researches scoured the results of hundreds of controlled trials to compare the beneďŹ ts of exercise versus drugs. This was no small review: They considered the information on more than 300,000 patients. Surprisingly, in diabetes and coronary heart disease, drugs and exercise produced the same results. Patients who'd had a stroke and were in rehab actually fared better on exercise than on drugs. In a combination of a dozen other studies, researchers veri-

ďŹ ed that physical exercise lowers blood pressure. SpeciďŹ cally, four hours of exercise per week correlated to nearly a 20 percent lower incidence of high blood pressure. Exercising one to three hours per week lowered that level to 11 percent. Being physically active on the job, however, did not lower high blood pressure, leading one researcher to comment that health guidelines don't distinguish between work and leisure activities, but they should. In yet another study, researchers determined that those who have dementia will think more clearly as a result of exercise. If a dementia patient lives at home, caregivers were encouraged to ďŹ nd exercise programs in the community. Dementia patients in care facilities also should be offered exercise pro-

• On Jan. 17, 1865, Union Gen. William T. Sherman's army is delayed in Savannah, Ga., by 10 days of rain as it waits to begin marching into the Carolinas. Just as Sherman and his army had destroyed nearly everything in its path in Georgia, Sherman planned to subject the Carolinas to the same brutal treatment.

• On Jan. 16, 1919, the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, prohibiting the "manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes," is ratified and becomes law. In 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution repealed prohibition. • On Jan. 15, 1936, Edsel Ford, son of auto pioneer Henry Ford, forms a philanthropic organization called the Ford Foundation with a donation of $25,000. The foundation was established in part as a legal way for the Ford family to avoid inheritance taxes. • On Jan. 14, 1954, Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe marries New York Yankees slugger Joe DiMaggio. The marriage barely got past the honeymoon, and they were divorced 274 days later. In her filing, Monroe accused her husband of "mental cruelty." • On Jan. 13, 1962, comedian Ernie Kovacs, who hosted his own television shows during the 1950s, dies after crashing his Chevrolet Corvair into a telephone pole in Los Angeles while driving in a rainstorm. The Corvair was later made infamous by Ralph Nader's groundbreaking 1965 book, "Unsafe at Any Speed." • On Jan. 18, 1985, for the first time since joining the World Court in 1946, the United States walks out of a case, this one concerning U.S. paramilitary activities against the Nicaraguan government. The Court decided against the United States; it charged that the U.S. violated international law with its actions against the Sandinistas. • On Jan. 19, 1977, President Gerald Ford pardons "Tokyo Rose," a Japanese-American woman named Iva Toguri. Toguri and other women had broadcast sentimental American music and phony announcements in a vain attempt to destroy the morale of Allied soldiers during World War II.

I once saw Mae sitting in her limo at a gas station off Sunset Boulevard. She said she wanted her fans to see her so they could grow old together. She passed away in 1980 at 87, but her one-liners live on: "When women go wrong, men go right after them"; "A man in the house is worth two in the street"; and "If I make it hard for you will you hold it against me? And hurry!"

*** Jerry Weintraub, who produced the Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra" for HBO, will next do the same for Mae West. Director William Friedkin, who won an Oscar for "The French Connection" and a Golden Globe for "The Exorcist," will have Bette Midler as Mae West. Harvey Fierstein who wrote "Torch Song Trilogy," "La Cage Aux Folles" and "Kinky Boots," based his screenplay on Mae's book "Goodness Has Nothing to Do With It."

In 1969, critics said Barbra Streisand did Mae West when she played Dolly Levi in "Hello Dolly." The following year brought "Dinah East," in which Jeremy Stockwell played a 1950s movie queen who was actually a man. In 1982, Ann Gillian played Mae West in a TV biopic bearing her name.

*** NBC must be having deja vu replacing Jay Leno as host of "The Tonight Show" again. Jimmy Fallon, who replaced Conan O'Brien on "Late Night" five years ago when NBC fired Leno, only to bring him back, debuts Feb. 17. Jay is mum, but rumors persist he's being wooed by other networks like CNN, which is making NBC lose sleep again!

In 1970, at 77, Mae personally interviewed men to play opposite her in "Myra Breckinridge." One of those men was an unknown, out-of-work actor named Tom Selleck. In 1978, at 85, Mae starred in "Sextette" opposite the soon-to-be James Bond, Timothy Dalton. Because she had trouble hearing, she wore a hearing aid that fed her lines. A news helicopter interfered with her reception, causing her to give the traffic report instead of her lines.

He'll be Jack Ryan in the $80 million "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," being directed by Kenneth Branagh. Pine has big shoes to fill. Alec Baldwin played Jack Ryan in 1990's "The Hunt for the Red October" (gross $200 million); in 1992 and 1994, Harrison Ford did "Patriot Games" (gross $178 million) and "A Clear and Present Danger" (gross $300 million); and in 2002, Ben Afflick played Ryan in "The Sum of All Fears" (gross $194 million).

DEAR PAW'S CORNER: We adopted a beautiful dog about a month ago. "Chase" is a great young dog, about a year old by the shelter's estimate. But over the past week he seems to be forgetting his house training. He urinates in different corners of the house at least three times a day, even though we take him out morning and evening at the same time. He seems kind of mopey, too. How can we correct this? -- Chandra in Baltimore DEAR CHANDRA: You should contact Chase's veterinarian right away. A sudden change in behavior or elimination patterns often signals that a dog is ill, rather than forgetting his training.

While puppies need to urinate more often due to their smaller bladders, Chase is nearing full growth and should not need to go out so often. Since he is peeing in the house, he may not be able to control his bladder, indicating something is wrong. Chase could be suffering from a urinary tract infection, or something else, but only the vet can determine exactly what the problem is and prescribe the right medicine. Take him in soon to get checked so he can start feeling better, and your carpet can get a break.

ple, if your teen is celebrating a birthday this week, bunch them in a tiny arrangement with an added fresh rose in the center and tuck it in her shinedup baby cup. Set the eye-catching mini bouquet on a tray for a memorable breakfast in bed surprise.

Re-Use Holiday Decor "Leftovers"

When I moved to Minnesota umpteen years ago, it only took one long sub-zero winter to understand why people leave their white holiday mini lights sparkling along eaves and portals; they brighten the landscape and our spirits during the dark, cold months that follow. So, the lights stay up.

What if an infection isn't the cause? The vet will check for other possible issues. If Chase is physically healthy, then begin looking for other reasons why he may be eliminating in the house. Does he suffer from anxiety? (Many shelter dogs do.) Is he alone in the house for long periods of time? Has anything changed in the household, like a new family member ... or someone leaving? Pets react to the rhythms of your home, sometimes much more strongly than we do.

stubs from holiday candleholders. Add a few old crayons with paper peeled off to the collection, too, if you wish. An adult should melt the wax inside a can set in a pan of water, which is heated until the wax melts. Remove wicks. Let your child place muffin papers in muffin tins. Pour wax 1/2-inch deep into the cups. Set new 3-inch wicks (available at craft stores) in the wax in each cup so wick hangs out the side. Set a medium-size pinecone in each cup. Let wax harden. To use, place a firestarter under kindling in fireplace and light wick. The burning pinecone will make the kindling ignite quickly. *** Donna Erickson's award-winning series "Donna's Day" is airing on public television nationwide.

phritis (PIE-uh-low-neff-RIGHT-iss). Bladder infections make a person uncomfortable, require frequent urination and might induce a slight rise in body temperature.

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS DIFFER DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My mother was discharged from the hospital this past week. She was admitted for a urinary tract infection. She has had many urinary tract infections in the past, and they were all treated as an outpatient. Why was hospitalization needed this time? -- J.J. ANSWER: The term "urinary tract" covers a considerable amount of ground. The kidneys, the ureters (the tubes that carry urine to the bladder), the urinary bladder and the tube that drains it -- the urethra -- are the four parts of the urinary tract. Your mother's past urinary tract infections most likely were bladder infections. The official name for those infections is cystitis. People usually are treated for cystitis as outpatients. Kidney infections, on the other hand, are much more serious, much more difficult to treat and carry with them the possibility of permanent damage. These infections most often are treated with intravenous antibiotics in

Weight Determines Kidney Function Heavier people have worse kidney health, compared with people of normal weight, according to a new study published by the National Kidney Foundation. Researchers followed 2,839 young adults with normal kidney function and found that overweight individuals were more likely to have reduced kidney function over the 10 years of follow-up. At the start of the study, participants who fell into higher weight categories also had more diabetes and higher cholesterol, blood pressure, and c-reactive protein (a measure of inflammation and a predictor of kidney disease) levels.

With a kidney infection, people take to their bed, have a high temperature, often develop shaking chills, and suffer flank pain. This is the kind of urinary tract infection you mother recently had. The booklet on urinary tract infections provides the details of these illnesses, which are more common in women than men. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1204W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Just below my armpit I have a small, red bump. It's not tender, even if I push on it. I know it's been there for many years, but I can't tell you how many, maybe forever. What could it be? -- D.A. ANSWER: This is a guess, only a guess. Because of the location, the lack of symptoms and the long time it's been there, I'd say it's an extra nipple. About 1 percent of the population has one or more extra nipples. Since it's been there for so long and since it hasn't caused any trouble, you don't have

Human Brain Cells Animal tests are not well-suited for evaluating potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease, according to a study published in Stem Cell Reports. The problem seems to be that mouse brain cells are much more responsive to the effects of drugs, compared with human brain cells, leading to an overestimation of drugs' value and disappointment when drugs are tested in patients. Much of the research dedicated to developing drugs for Alzheimer’s disease has focused drugs that block the production of the amyloid proteins that form plaques in the brain. Despite promising results in animal models of Alzheimer’s dis-

ease, the medications that have made it to clinical trials have so far failed. In this study, researchers used brain cells derived from stem cells taken from Alzheimer’s disease patients. In these cells, therapeutically relevant doses of medications failed to affect plaque-causing amyloid levels. According to the authors, “…It appears to be conceivable that data mouse models have led to an overestimation of [medication] efficacy in human neurons, a hypothesis that is supported by the clinical failure of this class of compounds."

*** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I love sweets. I also have diabetes. Can I use honey as a natural sweetener? -- L.V. ANSWER: Sugar is a natural product, too. You have to use honey as you would sugar. One teaspoon of sugar has 16 calories, and one teaspoon of honey, 21. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I take flaxseed each morning with my breakfast. It works wonders for me after having constipation for many years. My question is, Will the residue of flaxseed settle in my colon and cause a greater chance of diverticulitis or some other type of stomach disorder? -- P.N. ANSWER: Flaxseed keeps you from constipation. That reduces the risk of diverticulitis greatly. It isn't linked to any digestive tract disorder. Stick with it. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

(future inductee) John Smoltz. The Warren Spahn of our generation.

FRANK THOMAS No batter struck more fear into opposing pitcher's or fan's heart like the fabled "Big Hurt" did ... the baseball equivalent of Michael Jordan for much of the '80s.

THE CLASS OF 2014 Every year, need it or not, the Baseball Writers Association votes for a maximum of 10 players who retired at least five years ago for admission to the Baseball Hall of Fame. If 75 percent of the writers vote for a player, he's in. If a player cannot muster 5 percent of the vote or fails to win acceptance in 15 years, it's either over for him or he's in the hands of the Veterans Committee ... you know, where a bunch of guys sit around folding tables playing cards, smoking Pall Malls with mesh-backed baseball caps with the names of battleships on them. From there, it gets considerably more complicating and annoying. The criteria for election, aside from the math, is interpreted to be: 1) statistically dominant for the better part of a decade; 2) a "good" guy; or 3) someone who contributed to the game in a significant manner. I tend to eschew long-winded, statistical arguments. Instead, I just go from the common-sense angle. This is my non-official ballot for the year 2014, in order of preference.

GREG MADDUX I never saw Walter Johnson or Cy Young pitch, but I did get to see a post-prime Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan hum that rock, and I can say to you, despite his unremarkable post-season performances, Maddux was the best pitcher I ever covered. Poise, preparation, control and competitiveness turned him into what should be a unanimous first-ballot ride to the Hall of Fame.

TOM GLAVINE A pure athlete who was made better thanks to the camaraderie he shared with battery-mates Maddux and

TIM RAINES "The Rock" had his taste of scandal, but when it came to "tools" on the field, Raines had them all, and he put up the numbers. If Rickey Henderson was a top-line Cadillac, Raines was at least a killer, tricked-out Buick Riviera or Grand National.

CRAIG BIGGIO One of the greatest second basemen of all-time and the greatest Italian second baseman since Tony Lazerri.

MIKE PIAZZA Madone! You have to harken back to Berra, Dickey and Bench to find a better offensive catcher.

EDGAR MARTINEZ The greatest DH of all time. The end of story is an induction to Cooperstown.

JACK MORRIS DON MATTINGLY LEE SMITH Housekeeping. All three were dominant for the greater part of a decade and were classic sportsmen. All three will someday be enshrined ... here's hoping the writers do the right thing before the Veteran's Committee has to clean up. And apologies to:

FRED MCGRIFF JEFF BAGWELL CURT SCHILLING ... who in any other year would merit inclusion on my ballot. Mark Vasto is a veteran sportswriter who lives in Kansas City. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

HUMANE SOCIETY OF BROWARD COUNTY TO INTRODUCE Surrender by Appointment in 2014 Call our Animal Admissions Department 954-266-6873 Since 1944 the Humane Society of Broward County has taken in dogs, cats, rabbits, Guinea pigs and more. Whether the family is moving, someone developed allergies or they simply cannot financially afford the pet any longer, these families did not abandon their pets in a park to fend for themselves. Instead they brought them to the Humane Society so they could hopeful-

ly find another home. As our community has grown, so has the number of animals surrendered to the facility. After careful evaluation and consideration on the basis of a national trend, the HSBC will be starting surrender by appointment on January 15, 2014. Other large shelters across the country such as Animal Humane Society (Minneapolis) and the Houston SPCA have been doing this for several years and it has proven to be successful in their communities. There are several reasons why we have chosen to follow this trend. The first is transparency on eligibility for adoption of the animal. The second is to be able to provide alternative solutions to keeping the pet in the home like providing behavior training, limited vet care and nutrition for these animals. We will also be able to help the pet owner identify resources from within their own circle of friends and family that may provide the opportunity for them to re-home the pet on their own. Lastly, this will give us the opportunity to provide a Humane organization to surrender their pet. According to Christopher Agostino, President and CEO, “by accepting animals by appointment this will allow our staff to get a better understanding of why the pet is being given up and share with the owner other options that may be available. The appointment will also include an exam and evaluation of the pet, which should take 30-45 minutes, and the results will be shared with the owner prior to the end of the appointment so the owner can make the best decision for their pet.” The information gathered during this appointment will allow better placement of the pet into a new home. Details such as diet, medical history, activity level, and more will be obtained. By moving to surrender by appointment we will be able to control how and when animals come into the shelter and we hope to be able to assist more families so they are able to keep their pets. Animal shelter environments can be extremely stressful for pets and if we know when and why a pet is being surrendered, we can be better prepared for when the animal arrives to make the transition easier.

Robar Salon welcomes Paul, formerly of Hallandale Beach - Offering same pricing! really need first (most of them on the perimeter of the store), then shop the aisles for other things. I have stayed on budget for two months, when before I had been going over budget a lot!" -- E.O. in Oregon

• Before you use your grater to grate cheese, give it a quick shot of nonstick spray. It will keep the cheese from gunking up in the grate. If you need softened butter for a recipe, you can grate it frozen, and it will soften up very quickly, but not melt like in a microwave. • "Eliminate the odor of peanut butter after you wash the jar by rinsing it with white vinegar. I use peanut butter jars for storing things in my shop because they are a good size and the twistoff top is very secure. One time, the jar smelled like peanut butter, and I guess a mouse decided he'd like to get a taste. I found the gnawed-on jar on my outside workbench. Luckily, there wasn't anything in it." -- T.E. in Georgia • "I have found a new way to grocery shop and stay on budget. I use my calculator as I am going through, and add up as I go.

• "When heater season is in full effect -like now -- I keep a spray bottle of water, to which I add 2 tablespoons of liquid fabric softener. I spritz the house from time to time, and it will add humidity as well as a pleasant scent, but it also keeps my carpets from making my kids little zappers (from static buildup when dragging their feet!)." -- M.A. in Ohio

A friend of mine has slowly added an array of power tools and a table saw to his basement workshop, with more equipment planned as his wallet allows.

Q: I’ve been getting more and more interested in learning woodworking — basic stuff, like how to build shelves and small useful items around the house. Where’s a good place to start? What tools should I be looking for? — Jared H., Seattle

Building shelves, cabinets and other household items yourself can save quite a lot in labor costs, money you can put toward better-quality materials or other home improvements. And it’s a skill that I think is fading as progress marches on.

A: For those with no experience, I’d recommend looking for a woodworking class offered in your area. These are typically offered at adult learning centers, community colleges, even churches. Woodworking or woodcraft stores also offer introductory classes. You’ll probably pay about the same tuition for any

My friend the woodworker has been at it only a year or so, but he’s already driving his wife nuts by adding custom shelving to every open nook in their home. Some of it — like the shelves under the basement stairs — are quite basic, pine shelving, but in the living areas of the house he’s using

hardwoods to match the original oak, maple and cherry. He most recently built a swinging, latchable gate for the top of the stairway, a beautiful and more secure protective measure than a plastic baby gate. So, I encourage you to go for it. The classes may sound expensive, but you will gain tremendous amounts of woodworking knowledge, and they’ll pay for themselves in one or two shelf building sessions. You’ll also reduce a learning curve that can sometimes be frustrating, as you’ll get tips from the instructors that few books elaborate on. Remember, when in doubt as to whether you can safely or effectively complete a project, consult a professional contractor.
