IT’S TEA TIME! by Kathy Wolfe

It’s the world’s second most popular and cheapest beverage (after water), so shouldn’t you know a little more about tea? Tidbits has the goods on this drink, so listen up and learn! • Every day about three billion cups of tea are consumed around the world. In America, it can be found in 80% of households, and an estimated 127 million Americans are drinking it on any given day. Most of that tea comes from India, the world’s largest tea producer, processing about 850,000 tons each year.

• Tea as we know it is about 5,000 years old. Legend has it that a Chinese emperor discovered a good cup of tea in 2737 B.C. when some tea leaves off the tree into his pot of boiling water, producing a pleasant aroma. Tea became popular in Europe during the 1600s and was brought to North America by the colonists. Britain’s Duchess of Bedford is said to have created the traditional afternoon tea around 1840, when she needed a pick-meup to combat what she called “that sinking feeling.”

• When the British government heavily taxed the tea shipped to the American colonies, in 1773, a group of 116 men dressed as Native Americans boarded British ships and tossed 342 chests of tea overboard, about 90,000 lbs. (40,823 kg) worth. In today’s currency, that was equal to nearly a million dollars!

IT’S TEA TIME

305.675.7788 (continued):

• There are all kinds of tea – white, green, oolong, and black – but they all come from the same plant, the Carnelia Sinensis. The end product is determined by the processing of the tea leaves.

• The invention of the tea bag came about by accident. In 1904, a New York tea importer was looking for a cheaper way to send samples to customers. Thomas Sullivan had been using tin boxes, but as this proved expensive, he began wrapping the tea in small silk bags. His customers didn’t realize the bags were just packaging, and brewed their tea in them. Soon after, Sullivan was receiving orders for the new product. Today, 96% of the world brews its tea using a tea bag. • More of tea’s many medicinal and health benefits are being uncovered every day. Green tea seems to be especially healthful. It is high in the amino acid theanine, which has been shown to reduce stress and improve mental concentration. It may also increase the body’s immune system and antioxidant powers. Lab testing indicates that catechins, a type of antioxidant, inhibit the growth of cancer cells and may help reduce the breakdown of cartilage. A

• While white tea skips the steps of processing (the leaves are just steamed and dried), green, black, and oolong teas all go through a series of steps. It starts with withering, when the tea leaves are spread out and dried in a warm environment, which makes them pliable. A rolling machine is next, twisting the leaves in order to release the flavorful natural oils. Some more expensive grades of teas are rolled by hand, resulting in a higher quality. The leaves then undergo an oxidation process, when they are spread out in a cool room. At this point, the tea leaves are still green, but as they take in oxygen they gradually turn darker. The darkening can be stopped by heating. Green tea is not oxidized, oolong tea is oxidized for a short time, and the dark black tea oxidation process, which takes about three hours, is uninterrupted. The chemical reactions that take place during oxidation are what alters the leaves’ color and flavor. • While a cup of tea does contain caffeine, it doesn’t compare to the amount found in coffee. A cup of tea has about 40 mg. of caffeine compared to coffee’s 110 mg per cup. The lesser-processed green tea has even less caffeine than black leaves. But if you want a higher caffeine level in your tea, sip yerba maté, which has about the same amount as coffee. It’s made from the leaves of a South American rain forest holly tree, and contains 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, and an abundance of antioxidants. • Herbal teas, also known as tisanes, aren’t really tea at all. They come from the roots, stems, and flowers of other plants. There are numerous types of tisanes, depending on what part of the plant they come from. Mint, verbena, and lemongrass varieties are leaf tisanes, while chamomile, hibiscus, and lavender are flower tisanes. Cinnamon is a considered a bark type, while ginger, Echinacea, and chicory are root tisanes.

stomach, try sipping peppermint tea, since peppermint relaxes the muscles that give you stomach cramps. The anti-inflammatory properties of licorice root can reduce the swelling of a sore throat. It’s also well known that chamomile tea is a relaxant and is a natural sleep aid. • And it’s not just the human body that reaps the benefits of tea. It’s a great fertilizer for your roses! Watering both indoor and outdoor plants with cool leftover brewed tea gives them a boost of nutrients. You can also stir brewed tea leaves into your garden soil. • Tea experts warn not to use an aluminum teapot to prepare a tisane. Because aluminum is a reactive metal, they claim that it can react with certain plant types, and the result can actually be toxic.

recent university study indicated that tea has more potent antioxidants than 22 fruits and vegetables that were tested. Scientists say drinking green tea might also even help prevent tooth decay! And a study in the Netherlands has shown that those who drink catechin-rich tea are 50% less likely to die of heart disease. • Tea is not just for drinking! On the outside, green tea can help with inflammation. Soothe your puffy eyes with a soaked, chilled green tea bag. The same will work for insect bites. Keep mosquitoes away by smoothing the skin with damp tea leaves. Black tea bags have been proven beneficial in removing plantar warts. It’s the acidic tannin present in tea that shrinks the wart, just by placing a cooled bag on the wart for 15 minutes three times a day. • Tisanes also have medicinal qualities. If you have an upset

Potter spent most of her time with nannies and governesses, rarely seeing her parents except at bedtime. Educated in a schoolroom in their home, Beatrix and her younger brother also didn’t have the opportunity to interact with other children. Instead, a wide variety of pets became their companions and the Potter children spent many hours a day observing and sketching the mice, frogs, lizards, snakes, rabbits, turtles, hedgehogs, and a bat that shared their schoolroom. Beatrix demonstrated a unique gift for drawing, and when she was 12, her parents hired a private art tutor to help further her abilities. • Beatrix’ first income from her work came in her 20’s when she sold six watercolor paintings of her pet rabbit to a greeting card firm, which led to a series of other illustrating jobs. About this time, she began writing illustrated letters to the children of a former governess. It was here that Peter Rabbit had his beginnings. Seven years after she had written to one young child, she asked to borrow the letters, copying the illustrations into a rough black-and-white version of a children’s book. • Beatrix sent The Tale of Peter Rabbit to six publishers, all of whom rejected it. She paid to have the book privately published, ordering 250 copies which sold immediately. The little volume caught the attention of the publishing firm of Frederick Warne, a company of three brothers who agreed to publish it if Beatrix would re-draw the pictures in color. The firm released 8,000 copies of Peter in October, 1902, and by 1903 had sold over 50,000 copies. • The youngest Warne brother, Norman, was assigned as Beatrix’ editor. It wasn’t long before a romance bloomed between the two. Her parents did not approve of the romance, and when Norman sent Beatrix a letter containing a marriage proposal, her parents forbade the union. Shortly afterward, Norman became very ill, and sadly, just one month after his proposal, he died of leukemia. • After the tragedy, Beatrix dedicated herself to her work, using her earnings to purchase farmland, where she raised sheep. A local solicitor, William Heelis, advised her on her land dealings as she continued to buy up local farms. Beatrix married Heelis when she was 47 years old, and the pair continued to purchase land, 15 farms in all. • Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated 23 books in all, including The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, The Story of Miss Moppet, and The Tale of Tom Kitten. In 1921, the first Peter Rabbit books were published in Braille. Beatrix passed away in 1943, leaving a charming legacy that will entertain children for generations to come. Many of her childhood sketches, letters, and original watercolors are displayed in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

IT’S TEE TIME! Fore! Look out as Tidbits presents a few facts about the tools necessary for a good golf game. • The ancient Romans played a game similar to golf as we know it, but the modern game of golf was developed in Scotland in the 1400s. The first written record is that of a ban of the sport by King James II in 1457, calling golf a distraction to learning archery, which was necessary for national defense. • The official rules of golf state that a golfer’s bag may contain 14 clubs. A typical player will carry a driver, two woods, seven irons, three wedges, and a putter. The putter has earned the nickname “the money club” because it is the one used to tap the ball into the hole. The first clubs were made entirely of wood, followed by wood shafts with iron heads. In the 1920s, steel-shafted clubs came into play. Shafts made of fiber-reinforced composite materials were introduced in the early 1970s. • The earliest golf balls were probably made of wood. Golf balls in the early 1800s consisted of thin leather pieces stuffed with feathers. Those that were very tightly packed flew the farthest. More than 5,000 patents have been

granted for various forms of golf balls since 1900. Those little indentations on the ball are called dimples and were first used about 100 years ago. Players discovered that damaged balls flew farther than new ones, so companies began manufacturing balls in different shapes trying to increase the distances. One ingenious fellow studied the ball’s path, and came up with the current dimpled idea.

Today’s regulation golf ball has 336 dimples. • An official golf ball should not weigh more than 1.62 oz., and must be at least 1.68 inches in diameter. • There are about 32,000 golf courses worldwide, with close to 20,000 of those in the United States. The country

of Singapore has one course every 10 square miles, giving it the record for the highest per population density. England has one course every 27 square miles, and Scotland every 56. Yet some of the most populated areas of the world have no golf at all, for example, the Ukraine, whose population exceeds 47 million with nary a course in sight! • During a 1971 tournament in England, a 26-year-old golf pro named John Hudson achieved two consecutive holes-in-one at the 11th and 12th holes. Don’t expect to tie his record – the chances of repeating this are one in 67 million. • If you’d like to golf on the world’s longest course, you’ll have to travel to Australia. Some of the tees are 50 miles (80.5 km) apart on the 850-mile-long (1368 km) Nullarbor Links course that spans two Australian states. Don’t be surprised if you encounter the occasional wild camel or wombat. Be sure to notch out enough time for your game – somewhere between three and four days! The cost seems reasonable, however at $46.

Summer Energy Savings Q: Can CFL light bulbs really save money? I’m not convinced. But my electric bill is high enough that I need all the help I can get. -- Carey T., Boone, N.C. A: Depending on the wattage they offset (of old-fashioned light bulbs), compact fluorescent light bulbs can save you some money. Of course, that savings builds up over time -- months and years. They’re best used as part of an overall energy savings plan for your home. You don’t have to outfit your house with a complete solar panel array, wind turbines or other top-line (and top-dollar) gadgets to start cutting your energy bills. Savings can start as easily as turning off unnecessary lights and unplugging electrical or electronic items that don’t see much use: for example, a clock radio in the guest room. Set your summertime thermostat no lower than 68 degrees F. If you have a programmable thermostat, have it shift to a slightly higher temperature, say, 74 F, when no one is at home. And here’s a thermostat fact that not everyone knows: It’s better to simply set the temperature higher, rather than turn off the air conditioner, during the hottest months. When you get home and want to lower the temperature to a more comfortable level, the air conditioner has much less work to do and will cool the house much more quickly. Another enemy of energy efficiency is dust. Keep the air-conditioning vent covers free of dust, and vacuum the registers monthly. Likewise, change the air conditioner’s filter screen once a month during the cooling season. And,

because dust can gunk up a refrigerator’s cooling coils and reduce its efficiency -- as well as its lifespan -- clean the coils and vacuum under and behind the fridge every couple of months throughout the year. Weatherstripping around window and door frames, usually a fall-season chore, can reduce the amount of cool air escaping the house. If you really want to tackle the problem, get a home-energy audit -- offered at low or no cost by many utilities -- to locate the areas of greatest air leakage. HOME TIP: My husband likes to watch TV until he falls asleep, but then the TV is on all night, running up the electric bill. I solved the problem by programming the television to turn off at a scheduled time -- a feature found on the menu screen. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer. com. My new e-book, “101 Best Home Tips,” is available to download on Amazon Kindle! Pick it up it today for just 99 cents.

Consumers Endangered by Five Worst Fast-Food Secret Menu Items New Report Finds Secret Menus’ Lack of Nutrition Information a Public Health Threat WASHINGTON—Secret menus at McDonald’s, Chipotle, and other restaurants are the latest dangerous fast-food tactic used to deceive customers. Restaurants, in an attempt to sidestep the federal health care bill requiring calorie labels, are putting meals with the most fat, meat, and cheese on these hidden, unregulated menus, leaving customers playing Russian roulette with their health, according to a new report from the Physicians Committee. Some secret menu items are created by fast-food companies and posted on their websites, such as those at Panera and In-N-Out Burger. Others are created by customers and unofficially circulated via word of mouth, such as the Monster Mac at McDonald’s. Either way, calorie counts for these items do not have to be posted in restaurants because they are technically off-menu. “The Monster Mac at McDonald’s or Burger King’s Suicide Burger should not get a get-out-of-jail-free card,” says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee. “Nutrition information protects consumers and helps them make educated choices. It would be a lot harder for a conscious consumer to purchase a Monster Mac if a whopping 1,390 calories was listed alongside it. Restaurants using this secret menu loophole are deceptive and deadly.” Based on the ingredients described in recently revealed fast-food secret menu items, dietitians collected data from restaurant websites and other sources to conduct a nutritional analysis. The report highlights McDonald’s Monster Mac as the worst offender with 1,390 calories, 2,920 milligrams of sodium, and 92 grams of fat in the eight-burger sandwich. Multiply the staggering fat, cholesterol, and sodium of a single Big Mac by about eight to approximate McDonald’s secret Monster Mac. A study published last year in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology found that damage to arteries occurs almost immediately after one junk-food meal. Study participants consumed just one meal with 15 grams of saturated fat. Chipotle’s Quesarito has nearly double that amount from its cheese and sour cream. Dairy products are the No. 1 source of saturated fat in the US diet, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. “Customers might think that a name like a Suicide Burger is a joke—most consumers would not think that Burger King was actually trying to kill them. Fast-food restaurants found serving unregulated secret menu items like these

But the good news: “Next time you are at Chipotle, order a black bean fajita salad sans cheese and sour cream and you can still enjoy a side of guacamole without maxing out on the daily recommended intake of sodium and saturated fat,” Levin adds.

Suspend the License of Heart Attack Grill, Doctors Implore Las Vegas Department of Planning Director Urged to Suspend Restaurant’s License After Unofficial Spokesman Dies of Heart Attack WASHINGTON—The Heart Attack Grill should lose its license after the recent death of the restaurant’s unofficial spokesman, says the nonprofit Physicians Committee. John Alleman suffered a heart attack while waiting at a bus stop in front of the restaurant, which he came to every day. He was taken off life support a few days later. “These death-inducing foods and practices, which they have proved to be, are not a joke, as the owner would like us to believe,” writes Physicians Committee director of nutrition education Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., in a letter to Las Vegas Department of Planning director Flinn Fagg. “Please suspend the license of this dangerous business’s efforts to capitalize on obesity, clogged arteries, and now serial casualties.” The medically themed restaurant boasts “Flatliner Fries” cooked in lard, waitresses dressed as nurses, and a fake ambulance parked outside. Last year, a real ambulance was called to the establishment when a patron collapsed while eating a “Triple Bypass Burger.” In 2011, the diner’s official spokesperson Blair Rivers died at age 29. Because he weighed 575 pounds, he got to eat for free at the restaurant under its promotion offering free food to anyone over 350 pounds. The average American now eats more than 200 pounds of meat and more than 30 pounds of cheese a year. Meatheavy diets are strongly linked with obesity and heart disease. Two-thirds of the population is either overweight or obese. More than 80 million Americans have one or more forms of cardiovascular disease. Extensive research finds that vegetarian and vegan diets can help prevent and even reverse heart disease and other chronic diseases. Vegetarian men weigh less and have less cardiovascular disease risk, compared with nonvegetarians, according to a 2011 study in Nutrition and Metabolism. The Physicians Committee is urging the Las Vegas Department of Planning to work with the Heart Attack Grill to revamp its menu and name focusing on healthful vegan diner food prior to any further business activity. Levin writes, “‘May I suggest such items as the ‘Better for You Burger’ or ‘Feeling Fit Baked Fries,’ all served with a clean conscience at the Longevity Grill?’” For an interview with Ms. Levin, please contact Jeanne McVey at: jeannem@pcrm.org.

Plant-Based Diets Offer Greater Heart Protection than Mediterranean Diets—without Toxic, Fatty Fish New Mediterranean Diet Study Promotes High-Fat, Toxic Diet; Does Not Shield Heart Disease Risk WASHINGTON—Plant-based diets offer greater cardiovascular protection than the Mediterranean diet, without toxic fish and saturated fat, says the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (The Physicians Committee). New findings on the Mediterranean diet published in the New England Journal of Medicine overlook the risks of high-fat diets. “Those looking to make a real sea change in their heart health should lower the fat by eliminating fish and other animal products,” says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., PCRM’s director of nutrition education. “Loading up on fruits, vegetables, and beans—all sources of plant-based omega3—goes a long way toward cutting heart disease risk, without the fat or the toxins of fish.” Only 15-20 percent of the fat in fish is omega-3, and fish oil has no effect on heart-related death, heart attack, or stroke, according to a review of 20 studies in JAMA last year. Fish also contains substantial amounts of saturated fat, and high fish consumption is linked to weight problems. Another recent study showed that vegetarian diets provide even greater cardiovascular protection than the Mediterranean diet. Vegetarians were 32 percent less likely to be hospitalized or die from heart disease, compared with those who ate fish and other meat products. The vegetarians were also slimmer and had lower total cholesterol and blood pressure. National Institutes of Health-funded clinical research by the Physicians Committee shows that low-fat, plantbased diets are ideal for treating heart disease and type 2 diabetes—even more effectively than typical oral medications—and promoting weight loss. “For a healthy heart, focus on lowering fat intake and eating fiber-rich vegetables, legumes, and fruits,” advises Levin. Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit health organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research,and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research.

for 15 percent of strokes. The more-common kind of stroke is an ischemic (is-KEYmick) stroke, one that results from a blockage of blood flow through an artery serving the brain. It’s similar to what happens in a heart attack when a heart artery is plugged up. Your dad had this kind of stroke. The CT scan your dad had is one way of differentiating a hemorrhagic stroke from an ischemic one.

Rapid Stroke Treatment Saves Brain Cells DEAR DR. DONOHUE: While having dinner with my father, he suddenly had a blank look and stopped eating. He couldn’t speak clearly. My brothers and I got him onto a couch, and he stayed there for about 15 minutes. Finally, someone suggested he might be having a stroke, and we called 911.

Signs of both kinds of stroke are a sudden inability to speak, an inability to understand the spoken word, loss of sensations from parts of the body, weakness of a leg or arm and vision changes. Deprived of blood, brain cells and tissues die fairly quickly. As in your father’s case, clot-dissolving drugs can establish circulation to the brain area deprived of blood. If such treatment is given within three to four hours from the onset of symptoms, people can make a complete or nearcomplete recovery of function.

In the emergency room, the doctor had a CT scan done and then gave him a clot-busting drug. It worked unbelievably. He regained his speech and could move. Is this common? I thought strokes came from bleeding in the brain. What’s going on? -- T.M.

The booklet on strokes provides information on this common and often tragic malady. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 902W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. 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.

ANSWER: Strokes come in two varieties. The lesscommon kind is bleeding from a broken brain artery, often one that has an innate weakness in its wall. That’s an aneurysm. It has an explosive onset and produces a “worst headache ever.” This is a hemorrhagic stroke, accounting

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My son is 33. During his last visit, he happened to mention that he had floaters in his eyes, and they drove him crazy. He didn’t go into detail about this, but I would like to know about floaters and their implications. I never had them. -- L.H.

ANSWER: Floaters are dark, small spots that dart across a person’s field of vision when the person moves his eyes. They’re deposits of debris in the vitreous, a gellike substance that fills the entire back two-thirds of the eye. Nearsighted people are prone to developing them. I bet your son is nearsighted. There is no treatment for floaters. People learn to deal with them. A sudden onset of a large number of floaters indicates that the retina is tearing away from its attachment to the back of the eye. Detachment of the vitreous can do the same. If such an event takes place, an immediate examination by an ophthalmologist is mandatory. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Hilty, former “30 Rock” star Cheyenne Jackson and “Phantom of the Opera” film star Patrick Wilson as Prince Charming. Sondheim is adding new songs to the score for the film. One more part Depp wants to make his own is Carl Kolchak in “The Night Stalker.” The original TV series, with Darren McGavin, was on ABC in the l974/75 season. It was one of my favorite shows, and I was lucky enough to be asked to act on it by Darren McGavin, who also was

HOLLYWOOD -- The on again/off again romance between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is on again ... for the moment. Johnny has been quoted as saying he wants to marry her ONE day, while she counters that she won’t take any NONSENSE from him. The bottom line is she wants him to stop the partying and whiskey drinking to prove he’s ready to settle down. The $250 million “The Lone Ranger” film with Depp in the role of Tonto finally opens July 3. Don’t know when he’ll have time for romance with all the projects on his plate. First, he wants to produce a documentary on Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, his “Pirates of the Caribbean” co-star. Depp is currently shooting “Transcendence,” with Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara and Cillian Murphy, for April 2014 release. Then he’ll star in the fifth Caribbean flick, “On Stranger Tides,” being helmed by “Chicago” director, Rob Marshall. Add to the mix a remake of the William Powell/Myrna Loy film series “The Thin Man.” In addition, Depp wants to produce and star as comicbook character Rex Mundi and has bought the rights to another comic book, “The Vault.” In September, he’s due to shoot the film version of the multiple Tony Awardwinning musical “Into the Woods” in London, under Rob Marshall’s direction. His co-stars are Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, “Smash’s” Marilyn Monroe, Megan

producing the show. My character, Leon Van Heusen, was a TV repairman by day and a seeker of UFO’s by night. Somehow Leon contacted an extraterrestrial and was lured into the woods, where he was blown to death by gale winds and had his bone marrow sucked out. When we filmed on the back lot of Universal Studios, my three lines for the scene were drowned out by a waterfall nearby. Luckily, they’d also taped my lines, to be played a second time on a tape recorder Kolchak later found. So McGavin did a voice-over about Leon as they showed the scene. Twenty minutes later, when he found my lifeless body, the audience heard my three lines. For many years, friends kidded me about how I died and then my mouth died 20 minutes later ... that’s showbiz!

• “For a small splinter that is buried, try this trick before you go digging around with tweezers or a sterilized needle. Lay a piece of banana peel pulp-side down over the splinter and cover it with a bandage. Leave it on overnight if possible. It has something to do with the enzymes in the peel as it ripens, but it will help draw out the splinter. The peel needs to be nice and ripe, and it might take a couple of tries.” -- D.M. • Need a substitution for buttermilk? Use an equal amount of plain, unflavored yogurt, or for each cup, add a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk.

• On June 2, 1924, with Congress’ passage of the Indian Citizenship Act, the government of the United States confers citizenship on all Native Americans born within the territorial limits of the country. Before the Civil War, citizenship often was limited to Native Americans of onehalf or less Indian blood.

• On May 30, 1431, in Normandy, Joan of Arc, the peasant girl who became the savior of France, is burned at the stake for heresy. Her most serious crime, according to the tribunal, was her rejection of church authority in favor of direct inspiration from God. She was 19 years old. • On May 31, 1889, the South Fork Dam in Johnstown, Pa., collapses, causing a flood that kills more than 2,200 people. It was the largest earthen dam (made of dirt and rock, rather than steel and concrete) in the United States. Reportedly, a baby survived on the floor of a house as it floated 75 miles from Johnstown. • On May 29, 1914, heavy fog on the St. Lawrence River in Canada causes a collision of boats -- the Empress of Ireland and the Storstad -- that kills 1,073 people. Caused by a horrible series of blunders, it was one of the worst maritime disasters in history.

•On May 27, 1937, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge opens to the public after five years of construction. On opening day -- “Pedestrian Day” -- some 200,000 walkers crossed the bridge, which spans the Golden Gate Strait at the entrance to San Francisco Bay and connects San Francisco and Marin County. • On May 28, 1957, National League owners vote unanimously to allow the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers to move to San Francisco and Los Angeles, respectively, at the mid-season owner’s meeting in Chicago. • On June 1, 1980, CNN (Cable News Network), the world’s first 24-hour television news network, makes its debut. Today, CNN is seen in more than 89 million American households and more than 160 million homes internationally. In its first years of operation, CNN lost money and was ridiculed as the Chicken Noodle Network. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

• “On chore days, I write each chore or step of a chore on a sticky note and attach them to the kitchen counter. Then we all get together and decide who will do what. We end up with our stack of sticky notes and can complete the chores in an organized fashion.” -- R.E. in Alabama • Keep a lint roller by the sewing machine to quickly swipe up those tiny bits of thread. It’ll keep your sewing area from getting messy. • Sharpen scissors by cutting through a piece of aluminum foil that has been folded over several times. It really does work! • Parents of twins (or other multiples): It makes a big difference when you join a multiples club or keep in touch with an organization for that purpose.

Summer Childcare

--Local churches: Call all of them and ask what type of programs they have, and if any of their members watch children over the summer. You could find the perfect situation with an at-home parent who’ll take on extra children for a small fee. (Beware any local requirements for daycare status and licensing when there are more than six children.)

childhood major. Not all students go home for the summer. Even a mature high-school student might be perfect.

While summer camps for kids often are filled early, not all of them are. If you can find one, it’s likely to be expensive.

--Flex Time: Inquire at work about flex time. Taking off even one afternoon each week can make a difference. Can

you telecommute some of the days? Work a condensed week, with more hours on the days you go to work, giving you a day off? Can your spouse do the same? --Service Programs: Check whether your area has a Summer of Service program for “tweens,” children who are too old for a sitter and not old enough to be left alone. They’ll spend the summer under supervision doing a variety of volunteer tasks in the community. Aim for variety week by week. Perhaps grandparents will come visit (and child sit) for two weeks. Alternate between YMCA programs, church programs, recreation department day camps, your vacation days and a hired college student. If you interview prospective sitters, check their credentials. Passing a safety course should be minimum. Sitter courses are even better. In the case of high-school students still at home, contact the parents and verify what their own vacation plans might be.

Some owners just want their pets covered for serious illnesses; others want routine checkups and vaccinations covered, as well.

Pet Insurance for Real? DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I read an online interview that you did with a veterinarian who advocated that all pet owners buy pet insurance. Why are you recommending pet-insurance companies? Aren’t they just a scam? -- Patty in Mobile, Ala. DEAR PATTY: For better or worse, pet insurance is for real. It’s a fast-growing industry, too. Why? Because pet owners are opting for more complex, expensive treatments for their dogs, cats and other pets. In addition, veterinary costs are rising, just as costs for human medical treatment have risen in the past two decades. Vaccinations alone can cost more than $100 per year in some areas. Pet insurance gives owners who are committed to caring for their pets additional options in paying for their care.

To figure out if pet insurance is right for you, talk to pet owners who have insurance. Ask about their experience with their insurance company, the type of insurance they purchased and what they think of the quality of coverage. You also can also search online. For example, DugDug. com, a comparison-shopping website focused on pet owners, launched a new tool in April that compares different insurance companies, plans and rates. Hunt around, find the best plan and rate for you and your pet, and be sure to read the fine print before signing up for pet insurance. Send your questions or comments to ask@pawscorner. com.

in September, the cable network aimed toward younger male TV viewers will begin airing all-new episodes of everyone’s favorite real-life cops-androbbers show. For those who’ve been following the story, the move isn’t a surprise, as Fox ordered fewer episodes this season, and often took to pre-empting the show in favor of a sporting event. This move should be good for “Cops,” since it’s right up Spike’s alley and would most likely be given precedence over other types of programming.

A: The Syfy series based on the Stephen King novella will return for a 13-episode fourth season, which should begin airing late summer or early fall. *** Readers: A few weeks back, I reported about the resurrection of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.” We now have a premiere date for season five: The 13-episode season premieres June 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, with stars Brooke Elliott, Kate Levering, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst and April Bowlby returning. Former “90210” co-star Justin Deeley joins the ensemble cast, and John Ratzenberger and Jamie Ray Newman will be returning for guest appearances. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475; or e-mail her at letters@cindyelavsky.com. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Q: Will “White Collar” be back for a fifth season? -- Nina W., via e-mail A: It certainly will; in fact, filming on the series began May 10. I recently spoke with series star Tiffani Thiessen, who was busy in the interim promoting clean, green living with Glad by hosting a One Bag party in April for Earth Month (go to glad.com/onebag to see how you can help cut down on waste, and to see pictures from Tiffani’s party). Tiffani is excited about the coming season and getting to work with the cast again, telling me: “It’s definitely one of the nicest groups of people I’ve worked with in a really, really long time. It’s great that the show’s been doing well, and we’ve been doing this for a while now. We’re going into our fifth season. It’s very exciting.” When I asked if the cast and crew are green like her, she told me: “They’re actually very good about that. We don’t have any plastic water bottles around the set. Our very first season we got metal water bottles with the “White Collar” logo on them, and all of the crew members, all of the cast members use that. It’s the simple things like that that are great. With crews on TV shows and movies, the amount of stuff that gets wasted is crazy, so little things like that go a long way.” Q: First “America’s Most Wanted” was canceled, and now I hear “Cops” is following suit. Please say it ain’t so! -Jeremy S., Washington, Ohio A: It ain’t so, Jeremy, but there has been a change of venue. “Cops,” which has been a fixture on Fox’s Saturday nights for 25 years, is moving to the Spike network.

Q: I liked the series “Haven.” Do you know if it’s coming back? -- David V., via e-mail
