• William Kennedy was pitching for Brooklyn in 1897 when the umpire called a close decision against him. Kennedy lost his temper and hurled the baseball at the umpire, intending to smack him in the head. The ball narrowly missed the ump, who called the ball in play. A runner on base scored before the catcher could retrieve the ball. Brooklyn lost the game 2 - 1. • Joe Engel, pitching in Washington, did not do a very good job. The question was not whether his pitches would go over the plate but whether they would stay in the ballpark. Manager Clark Griffith called him to his office one day and informed him he was being sent to Minneapolis. “Who am I being traded for?” Engel asked. “No one,” replied Griffith. “It’s an even trade!” • In 1918, Otis Crandall was pitching for Los Angeles against Salt Lake City. He had a perfect no-hitter going. There were two out in the ninth inning and not a single man had reached base. Then his brother Karl came to bat for Salt Lake. He made a base hit — the only known instance where a no-hitter was broken by the pitcher’s brother.

• Bob Fothergill was a big man. He was a good hitter, but he was sensitive about his weight. As Leo Durocher got ready to pitch against him, he called out, “Stop the game!” and approached the umpire. When the ump asked what was wrong, Durocher replied, “Don’t you know the rules?” he asked, pointing at Fothergill. “BOTH those guys can’t bat at the same time!” Fothergill was so angry he couldn’t bat well and struck out. • Ty Cobb, playing for the Detroit Tigers in 1912, was suspended from play when he jumped into the stands and beat up an abusive heckler. His sympathetic teammates went on strike. So the manager advertised for new players to fill in the next day at a game in Philadelphia. This impromptu team went up against the world champion Oakland A’s. The pitcher allowed 25 hits and 7 walks in 8 innings, but did manage to get one strike-out. An infielder was hit in the mouth by a ground ball and lost two teeth. An outfielder was hit on the head by a fly ball. This pick-up team got 4 hits and made 10 errors and the final score was 24 - 2. The next day, the regular team members ended their strike, paid their fines, and went back to work, except for Cobb, who was suspended for 10 days. • Charlie Grimm was managing the losing Chicago Cubs. One day he got an excited call from his scout saying that he found a pitcher who struck out 27 men in a row. Only one man had even managed to hit a foul. He asked if he should sign the pitcher. Grimm replied, “Sign up the guy who hit the foul. We’re looking for hitters!” • In 1939, Bob Feller was the best known pitcher in the country, playing for Cleveland. On Mother’s Day, he brought his mother from her Iowa farm to Chicago so she could see him play. A Chicago White Sox batter slugged a foul ball into the stands — where it hit Feller’s mother, knocking her unconscious. • Germany Schaefer was batting against Nick Altrock. There was a man on first. Schaefer swung and missed a fast ball. Then the pitcher, pretending he was getting ready to throw to the batter, let loose with a fast ball to first base, where the runner was leading off. Continued next page • When he got the ball back, Altrock let fly another scorcher of a fastball. Schaefer got a second strike. He threw down his bat and walked back to the dugout. “Hey,” called the ump, “You’ve only got two strikes!” “No,” replied Schaefer, “It’s three strikes — I swung at that pitch he threw to first base!” • In the early 1900s, Rube Waddell was such a great pitcher that all batters feared him. One day the pitcher on the opposing team got a great idea: if he could tire Waddell out before the game, his pitching would be off. So he challenged Waddell to a pitching contest. Whichever one of them could throw the farthest would win $5. They both showed up before the game and

P I T C H I N G SHENANIGANS (continued) threw the ball as far as they could. Waddell’s throw went farthest. The opposing pitcher challenged him to throw that far again. He did. In fact, he threw the ball that far around 50 times. Convinced that Waddell’s arm would be worn out, the rival pitcher handed over the $5. That afternoon, Waddell struck out 14 batters and his team won handily. As he was walking to the clubhouse, he called out to the other pitcher, “Hey, thanks for the workout this morning. That was swell practice!” • Texas University was up against the Yankees in an exhibition game when Lou Gehrig came up to bat. There were two runners on base and it was three and two for Gehrig. The catcher signaled the pitcher, the pitcher nodded — then threw a straight ball right to home plate. Gehrig sent it clear out of the park. The catcher marched up the pitcher, ranting at him for not paying attention to the signals. “Why did you throw him such a nice pitch?” he yelled. The pitcher was not sorry. “I got to thinking: I’ll never pitch a Big League game and maybe I’ll never get to see a game at the Yankee Stadium, and I sure did want to see Gehrig bust just one!”

Women in History:

JACKIE MITCHELL Jackie Mitchell was born in Tennessee in 1913. Her neighbor, Dazzy Vance, was a pitcher in the minor leagues. Though Jackie was only five, Dazzy taught her basic pitching techniques, and she quickly caught on. Dazzy told her she could become a great ball player. Jackie grew up believing him. • At 16, Jackie played for a women’s team in Chattanooga. At 17, she attended a baseball school in Atlanta, where she was noticed by the owner of the Chattanooga Lookouts, a minor league team. He offered her a contract to play for the 1931 season. The newspapers ran stories about the first woman ever to play in the minor leagues. (However, in 1898, Lizzie Arlington played a single game for Reading, PA, technically making Jackie the second woman in minor league history.) • Meanwhile, the New York Yankees had finished spring training in Florida and were on their way to New York. They stopped in Chattanooga to play the Lookouts in an exhibition game. • The game began before a crowd of 4,000. Reporters, wire services, and a newsreel camera were on hand. The Lookouts’ manager sent Clyde Barfoot out to pitch the first inning. The Yankees’ lead-off batter slugged a double, and their next hitter smacked a single, allowing a run. The manager pulled Barfoot out and sent rookie southpaw Jackie to the mound. The next hitter up at bat was the legendary Babe Ruth. • Jackie’s first pitch was a ball, but the next three pitches were strikes, with Babe taking a useless swing at the first two, and the third dropping across the plate for a strike. Jackie Mitchell struck Babe Ruth out. The crowd went wild! Babe Ruth kicked the dirt, called the umpire nasty names, gave his bat a wild heave, and stomped out to the Yank’s dugout. • But there was still work to be done, for the next batter up was Lou Gehrig. She struck him out on three pitches. Jackie Mitchell had fanned the “Sultan of Swat” and the “Iron Horse” back-to-back. The crowd rose to its feet in a lengthy standing ovation. • Jackie pitched to one more batter, allowing a walk, before the manager pulled her out and sent Barfoot in. The Yankees won 14 – 4. • The news spread across the country. Fan mail poured in. One envelope had no address aside from the words “The Girl Who Struck Out Babe Ruth.” • A few days later, the baseball commissioner voided her contract, declaring that women were unfit to play

UNUSUAL BASEBALL PLAYS

• In Fenway Park, rules declare that if a batted ball hits one of the pigeons who roost in the stadium, the ball is declared dead.

• Brooklyn had the bases loaded. Hank DeBerry was on third, Dazzy Vance on second, and Chick Fewster was on first. Babe Herman came up to bat and hit a long one. DeBerry ran home and scored. Vance advanced to third and decided to stay there. Fewster ran to second and was on his way to third when he saw that Vance had stopped, so he turned around and went back to second. But Babe Herman was running full speed ahead, past first, past second, and on to third. At third he made a great slide, only to find Vance already occupying the base. Fewster stood halfway between second and third, wondering what he should do. The third baseman got the ball and began tagging everybody in sight. When the umpire recovered his senses, he called Herman and Fewster out, and Vance safe. It took half an hour for the audience to stop laughing, and it spawned a popular joke: “How’s the game going?” “Brooklyn has three men on base!” “Oh really? Which base?”

• In 1984, Dave Klingman went to bat for the Oakland Athletics against the Minnesota Twins. Klingman hit a fly ball that penetrated the protective netting of the Metrodome ceiling 180 feet up. It never fell. Umpires called it a ground rule double. When the ball was retrieved by the groundskeeper, it was sent to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

• Herman Schaefer, playing for Washington in 1910, was on first and a teammate was on third. Schaefer stole second, hoping the catcher would try to throw him out, giving the teammate on third a chance to go for home. But the catcher didn’t make the throw. So Schaefer stole first base back. The rule book revealed no rule against stealing bases backwards. When play resumed, Schaefer stole second again. The catcher threw (too late) and the teammate on third scored. Later the rules were amended and stealing backwards became an automatic out. • Herman Schaefer once hit a homer out of the park. He slid into first, slid into second, slid into third, and slid home.

• In 1920, the Cleveland Indians were up against Brooklyn in the World Series. Bill Wambsganss was in center field for the Indians when he caught a fly for one out. The force of the running jump carried him to second base, where he tagged out the second base runner who had been heading for third. Then he got another easy out by tagging the first base runner heading for second. It was an unassisted triple play. The crowd was silent while they tried to figure out what had happened and how many outs there were. When realization set in, fans went wild. • Mike Grady, third baseman for the New York Giants, holds the distinction of making the most errors in one play. In 1895, he missed a ground ball and the batter reached first. He overthrew the ball to first, and the batter got to second. When the runner headed for third, the first base man threw to Grady, but he dropped it and the runner raced home, whereupon Grady threw the ball over the catcher’s head. Four errors on a single play. • In 1931, the Braves were losing to the Cardinals, 12-0. Rabbit Maranville called time out and gathered the team for an infield conference. They gathered in a footballtype huddle. Rabbit called the signals, someone snapped the baseball back to him, and the players went crazy tackling each other. inmates, some of whom burn to death when they are not unlocked from their cells. The prison, built to hold 1,500 people, housed 4,300 prisoners at the time of the fire.

JACKIE MITCHELL (continued):

• On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere and William Dawes set out on horseback from Boston to warn leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching on Concord on a mission to confiscate the Massachusetts militia arsenal and capture Adams and Hancock.

• On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson, age 28, becomes the first black player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, N.Y., to compete for the Dodgers. Baseball had been segregated for more than 50 years. • On April 17, 1964, the Ford Mustang is officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. That same day, the new car also debuted in Ford showrooms across America, and almost 22,000 Mustangs were immediately snapped up by buyers. Ford sold more than 400,000 Mustangs in its first year.

baseball because it was “too strenuous.” In 1952, Major League Baseball formally banned women from contracts, a ban that lasted until 1992.

• On April 19, 1876, a Wichita, Kan., commission votes not to rehire policeman Wyatt Earp after he beats up a candidate for county sheriff. Earp’s Remington pistol made an effective club: Whenever possible, he preferred to pistol-whip his opponents rather than shoot them.

• Crushed, Jackie began pitching in exhibition games. At 19, she signed with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their long hair and beards. She traveled with them until 1937, but eventually got tired of the sideshow aspects of her career, such as being asked to wear a fake beard, or playing an inning while riding a donkey.

• On April 16, 1897, Frederick Winterbotham, one of Britain’s top code breakers, is born. Winterbotham would play a decisive role in the World War II Ultra codebreaking project, enabling British intelligence to intercept top-secret messages (even from Hitler) transmitted to and between German armed forces.

• On April 20, 1971, the Pentagon releases figures confirming that “fragging” is on the rise in Vietnam, with hundreds of reported incidents. Fragging was a slang term used to describe U.S. military personnel tossing a fragmentation hand grenade (hence the term “fragging”) to kill or wound or a fellow soldier, usually a superior officer or NCO.

• On April 21, 1930, a fire at an Ohio prison kills 320

(c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

• She retired at 23, but played with local teams. She refused to come out of retirement when the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League formed in 1943. • In 1982, she was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Chattanooga Lookouts on their season opening day. She died in 1987, and was buried in Chattanooga. • Her mentor, Dazzy Vance, went on to pitch major league for Brooklyn, and was the only pitcher to lead the National League in strikeouts for seven consecutive seasons. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955 and died in 1961.

The result has been an increase in nutrition-related activities at centers such as seminars for teachers and the use of TOUCH educational resources as a prelude to food preparation, as well as discussions about food and physical activity across the curriculum.

Preschoolers and Teachers Increase Healthy Eating Habits

FLIPANY, TOUCH partnership encourage better nutrition in early learning centers Through the Transforming Our Community’s Health (TOUCH) initiative, partner organization FLIPANY— Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth—is empowering both teachers and parents at early learning centers in Broward County with the goal of helping children to develop healthy eating habits. With the view that both the home and center environment determine food choices of preschoolers, FLIPANY provides technical assistance by: • Helping centers to review foods served to children. • Educating teachers about actions that they can take, or support, to prevent excessive weight gain in preschoolers. • Suggesting how TOUCH resources can be used to deliver enjoyable, structured physical activity and healthy eating lessons to children, making links with these as positive as possible. • Encouraging links between nutrition/physical education and other areas of the curriculum as well as nutritionrelated bridging activities to mealtimes. • Helping centers that qualify, to provide opportunities for parents to learn to shop for healthy foods and cook nutritious meals on a budget. • Encouraging teachers to be healthy eating role models and to inform parents about nutrition-related activities at the center and how to reinforce healthy choices at home.

Parents have also benefitted through an increase in knowledge of nutrition. With the aide of Early Learning Coalition, Family Central and FLIPANY, the children enjoy the activities, express delight when offered healthy foods they really like and are more willing to try new foods because of a positive association. One result of the technical assistance can be seen at Tiny Town Preschool in North Lauderdale. The students tried new vegetables from their garden and teachers taught the students about the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables. After eating a carrot, one 4-year-old child commented to his teacher, “My eyes are bright, do my eyes look bright?” Jewel Porter, FLIPANY’s nutritionist, noticed kids were more likely to try these new foods after learning the health benefits of them. Gilma Segarra, director of Tiny Town Preschool commented, “After FLIPANY came to our school and taught the teachers about being role models for the students, the teachers have been bringing in healthier snacks and lunches. We are looking forward to the cooking/ nutrition class starting this month.” FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) is a local non-profit organization established in 2005 that empowers youth and adults through physical activity and nutrition programs while raising awareness and creating awareness of policy changes for healthier communities. FLIPANY has been instrumental in helping the community recognize the importance of their health, how to make healthy lifestyle choices, and the critical role nutrition and physical activity plays in the health and development of youth and families.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I recently got into a discussion about circumcision with my granddaughter, who recently gave birth to our great-granddaughter. She mentioned that if her next child were a boy, she would choose not to have him circumcised. She claims her husband made a study of the procedure and says it is mutilation, the same as is practiced on women in some countries. She states it is a religious ritual only. Is circumcision of males considered the same as mutilation of females? -- P.H.

The arguments against male circumcision are that it is unnecessary, doesn’t markedly affect the health of men or women in developed countries and can lead to serious complications, rare but possible. The actual complication rate is 0.2 percent to 0.6 percent, and most of the complications are minor. Furthermore, some feel strongly that it is a mutilating procedure. It is not on a par with female circumcision. I believe the parents of infant boys are the ones to make the decision. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What does the gallbladder do? I’m going to have mine out. How does losing it affect life? -- J.M. ANSWER: The gallbladder is 3 to 4 inches long and holds about an ounce of bile. Bile is a product of the liver. The gallbladder lies beneath and closely adherent to the liver on the right side of the abdomen.

ANSWER: The debate on male circumcision is one that generates heat on both sides. It is not the same as female circumcision. That is truly a mutilating procedure.

When people eat a fatty meal, the gallbladder contracts to shoot a stream of bile into the small intestine to aid in the digestion of fat. Without a gallbladder, bile drips into the small intestine directly from the liver. Fat digestion goes on almost as it did with a gallbladder.

Male circumcision for cultural and religious purposes is one thing, and I’m not talking about the procedure in those circumstances.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: After 18 holes of golf, the tendons on the back of my heels hurt. What should I do? -- C.K.

The benefits of male circumcision include a reduction in urinary-tract infection in infancy. It is said to reduce the transmission and acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases. It has been shown convincingly to decrease the transmission of the HIV virus, the virus that causes AIDS;

ANSWER: The likely cause is inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the tendon of the calf muscle. It attaches to the heel. Don’t play golf for two weeks. Take Aleve if there’s no reason for you not to use it. Put warm compresses on it for

15 minutes three times a day. Try heel inserts, obtainable in every drugstore. When you start playing again, ice the tendon for 10 to 15 minutes after you’re through playing. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

HOLLYWOOD -- Ryan Gosling is taking time off from acting to direct “How to Catch a Monster,” which he also wrote. Ryan cast his “The Place Beyond the Pines” costar Eva Mendes as the female lead in the film ... and his personal life! The film also stars Bradley Cooper and Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn, last in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Mendelsohn joins Christina Hendricks and the current “Dr. Who,” Matt Smith, in Gosling’s “Monster” movie. In addition, Ryan has “Only God Forgives,” with Kristin Scott Thomas, ready for release. *** Ecstatic to hear that “Hot in Cleveland” castmates Betty White and Georgia Engel will have a reunion with Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” It will be the first time they’ve all worked together since 1977. The threesome will play members of White and Engel’s old bowling team, GLOB (the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling). The special episode will be filmed in April. *** Sean Hayes’ best credit of late is as producer of “Hot in

It’s My Mother or the Dog DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My mom keeps complaining that she wants to visit me at my new apartment, but that my dog, “Frankie,” sheds too much and causes her allergies to flare up. Frankie is one of those “no-shed” breeds of poodle, so I don’t know why she thinks he’s the culprit. How can I solve this? I’m not getting rid of Frankie just so she can visit. -- Abigail C., New York DEAR ABIGAIL: Perhaps there’s a happy medium the two of you can reach. First, understand that even dogs whose coats don’t shed much hair are not really “allergenfree.” Dander, which grows close to the dog’s skin, can still be shed and can cause allergies to flare up.

doesn’t discuss his sexuality because it could keep him from being considered for a variety of roles. Hayes, who won an Emmy for “playing gay” on “Will and Grace,”

Madonna presented it to him dressed as a Boy Scout, admitting, “I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join. I can build a fire, know how to pitch a tent, have a very good sense of direction, but most importantly, I know how to scout for boys!” She also admitted that she got the uniform by saying it was for her son. Anderson accepted, saying, “I’ve had so many blessings in my life, and being gay is certainly the greatest blessing.” Are you listening, Sean? What is it they say? “If it quacks like a duck ...”! *** BITS & PIECES: When “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” passed the $200 million mark, producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick announced they’re planning a sequel. ... Speaking of sequels, Halle Berry will join Sir Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, James McAvoy and this year’s best actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” ...

Other environmental issues in the apartment can contribute to your mother’s allergies. In winter, dust can build up, and mold spores and pollen can enter even the cleanest apartments through heating air ducts.

so much thought into your decision to bring Sky to an offleash park. It’s important to be considerate of how your dog will behave in social situations. The question now is, how exactly will she behave?

Reduce the amount of allergens by dusting and vacuuming frequently. Wash and dry area rugs before your mom’s visit. During days with high pollen counts, keep the windows shut and run the air conditioner or heater instead. Be sure to change or clean the unit’s filter, if you have access to it, to reduce the amount of allergens coming through the system.

My guess is that Sky has not spent a lot of time with other dogs. She’s old enough now to start socializing, but first make sure she has had all needed vaccinations.

If she still insists that the dog is the culprit, consider boarding Frankie for the day or two that your mother is visiting, or having a friend keep him during that time. You shouldn’t have to give up your pet just so your mother can drop in occasionally, but you probably can come to a compromise that will enable her to visit.

Start small -- schedule a play date with a friend or neighbor’s dog, and gradually build the number of dogs she’s around. Supervise her the entire time to make sure she gets along well with other dogs. If it isn’t possible to do a limited play date, look into weekly group training sessions with a professional trainer. These will reinforce basic obedience skills with Sky with the added benefit of socializing, in a controlled environment, with other dogs.

If neither option is available, slowly introduce Sky to the dog park. Pick a time when few dogs are in the park. (You’ll need to scout the park on your own beforehand.) Keep her on the leash for the first few visits, especially when she’s meeting new dogs.

Going Off-Leash

Be a good park patron, too. Talk with the other dog owners while you’re there -- they can offer helpful advice. Pick up after Sky. Make sure Sky will respond to you and your commands both on and off leash.

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My puppy, “Sky,” is approaching a year old, and she is still a bit rambunctious. I’d like to take her to a nearby off-leash dog park, but I’m worried about how she will act around other dogs and people. -- John P., Portland, Maine DEAR JOHN: First, I want to commend you for putting

by Samantha Weaver • It was pioneering British director of suspense films Alfred Hitchcock who made the following sage observation: “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.” • If you’re an arachnophobe, you probably don’t want to know that a tarantula can live for up to two years without eating a single thing. • If you’re like the average American man with a job, you spend 8 minutes per day cooking. If you’re like the average American woman who works, you spend 50 minutes a day preparing meals. • There are four times more astrologers than astronomers in the United States. • You may not think it significant that in 1921, Earle Dickson’s wife had a tendency to injure herself while working in the kitchen. He kept bandaging her wounds with gauze and adhesive tape, but the bandages always seemed to be slipping off. Finally, in exasperation, he put a small piece of gauze in the center of a piece of adhesive tape, which worked beautifully. None of this would have made any difference to us today, except that Dickson was an employee of Johnson & Johnson. He took some samples of his invention into work, where the owner, James Johnson, loved the idea. The Band-Aid went into production shortly thereafter. • In the 1979 gubernatorial election in Louisiana, a man named Luther Knox was fed up with the candidates on the ballot. In order to give like-minded Louisianans an option, he ran for the office himself -- after legally changing his name to “None of the Above.” • You might be surprised to learn that rock star Elvis Presley’s idol was General Douglas MacArthur. *** Thought for the Day: “The hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes.” -- Albert Einstein (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Q: One of my favorite character actors is Michael O’Neill. I especially enjoyed him as Special Agent Butterfield in “The West Wing,” and as distraught widower Gary Clark in “Grey’s Anatomy.” What is he up to now? -- Patrick G. in Connecticut A: Michael co-stars in the new Sundance Channel original drama called “Rectify,” a six-episode series that begins April 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. He plays Sen. Roland Foulkes, who rose to great political heights on the heels of what turns out to be the wrongful prosecution and imprisonment of Daniel Holden for rape and murder, for which he is exonerated after serving 19 years on death row. When I spoke with Michael recently, he told me about his new role: “On the one hand, it’s so delicious to play a guy who’s Machiavellian, and you want to make him more evil, more manipulative. You just want to go down that rabbit hole. “But I don’t think that’s true (to his character). I think he feels like he’s been a public servant. He answers to the people. He felt the pulse of the town and what they

A: The USA Network decided to cancel the lawyer series after two seasons. Series star Sarah Shahi has since costarred on “Chicago Fire” and had a guest appearance in February (which could turn into a recurring role) on “Person of Interest.” Michael Trucco recently completed an explosive recurring role on “Revenge,” and was cast to star alongside former “Battlestar Gallactica” co-star Tricia Helfer in her new ABC pilot, “Killer Women.”

U., via e-mail A: HBO recently announced the “very difficult decision” of deciding to cancel the struggling comedy series after two seasons. “Enlightened,” which was created by Laura and co-star Mike White, was critically acclaimed but struggled with ratings. Even a Laura’s Golden Globe win for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, as well as co-stars like Luke Wilson and Diane Ladd, couldn’t save the show.

A: I am happy to report that TBS has renewed “Cougar Town” for a 13-episode fifth season. The new season -which will continue to star Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins and Brian Van Holt -- is expected to launch in 2014.

Let’s get started by making a 3-D potted cactus in three easy steps. Use the same steps to make other objects.

Join your kids in creating art in 3-D with this easy and fun activity using household basics: corrugated cardboard from an empty box, scissors, paint and markers. That’s it. Watch your kids enjoy hours of fun with this clever construction technique. Once they get the hang of assembling the two interlocking pieces they’ve designed themselves, they’ll discover that a three-dimensional mobile will look just right hanging over their homework desk. It’s so much fun, preschoolers will want you to join in and help them make

2. Trace the original potted cactus onto another piece of cardboard and cut out the second shape. Color or paint both sides of each cutout, making them look as similar as possible. 3. Mark the center point on the top of each cutout. On one piece, cut a slit starting at the top of the cactus and going down to that mark. On the other, cut a slit from the bottom of the flowerpot going up. The slits should be as wide as the thickness of the cardboard. over the long haul you will almost certainly pay more in premiums than you receive for any claims. So, keep your premium payments as low as possible.

Chief Investment Officer Roger Paschke of the Hearst Corp. lists some often underutilized or overlooked ways that many of us can use immediately to generate extra cash and build more financial security. 1. Don’t maintain bank accounts that have monthly service charges, transaction fees or require minimum balances. Plenty of commercial banks, savings banks, credit unions or online banks offer accounts with no fees or minimum balances. 2. Review your home and auto insurance policies and consider increasing your deductible to the highest amount you think you can afford if you had an insurance-covered loss. High deductibles will reduce your monthly or annual insurance payments. Also, combine your home and auto coverage with one company, which will result in additional savings. Insurance is useful when you have a loss, but

4. If you have outstanding balances with multiple credit cards, combine the balances under one card with the most favorable rates and terms. Then pay off the debt with the highest interest rate first. Beyond that, pay off all of your credit-card balances as fast as possible. It’s the worst and most expensive kind of debt you can have.

If you’ve owned your home for more than five years, it’s probably worth a lot less now than what you paid for it, which means you may be paying too much in property taxes. 7. If you’re getting a salary raise this year, commit to depositing half of it into your savings, paying down debt or building a college fund for your children. Since you didn’t have that money last year, it’s added income this year, and you should be able to commit some of it to your longer-term financial goals.

my sandwich. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The GPS says youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there,â&#x20AC;? said the order taker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can assure you, I am here,â&#x20AC;? I replied in the assured manner of someone who existed and had just ordered a sandwich. I further explained I lived less than a quarter mile away, on the main thoroughfare and was the sole house on top of the hill ... impossible to miss.

Off the Radar I was watching the NCAA tournament, and I wanted a sandwich. I had no cold cuts, nor did I have any bread in the house. Well ... actually, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not entirely true. We had the bread my wife makes our kid eat thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made out of bird seed and sticks and some sort of tofurkey nonsense in the fridge, but I would rather eat glass than that stuff. So I picked up the phone to order a sandwich from the local sandwich shop that advertises very fast delivery. But since we got rid of the land line and went â&#x20AC;&#x153;cellphone only,â&#x20AC;? that can sometimes be problematic. You see, my cellphone has a battery with the lifespan of a mayfly and never works. So, after charging it in a wall outlet for a few minutes, it woke up, and 15 minutes later, after it helpfully â&#x20AC;&#x153;synchedâ&#x20AC;? and downloaded the 70 inane text messages sent from friends at sports bars (who were no doubt enjoying sandwiches), I was finally able to make the call and order

He was still befuddled. I still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t showing up on his GPS, even after ordering pickles and chips. After suggesting he take out his crayon and write the directions down, he went to work spitting in my sandwich, and I went back to the games.

Witchita State played The Salvation Army of Broward County is sponsoring the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of street ball, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss and the players were getting Commerce Membership Breakfast tattoos during TV timeouts, it seemed. Minnesota lost, and responded by firing Tubby Smith. Tubby Smith, the guy who had a .610 winning percentage and took them to the tournament seemingly every year. The powers that be, they said, wanted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fresh pair of eyesâ&#x20AC;? for the program. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nuttier than the bread my kid eats. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see where Tubby goes next. The delivery driver calls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Om ... youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not on my GPS,â&#x20AC;? he said.

A: You are correct in that your crock was probably used for pickling, since the “10” indicates it is a 10-gallon vessel. The Western Pottery Manufacturing Company was located in Denver and produced stoneware crocks in various sizes. One as large as the one you have is difficult to find in good shape. I suspect it would retail for at least $100, probably more. Q: I bought a small music box shaped like a piano at a garage sale for $5. I have five granddaughters who will draw for this item, and since I want to be fair and even, I need to know its value. -- Vivian, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: I have seen similar music boxes sell in regional shops in the $10 to $50 range, depending on market, condition and age.

Grow a Pizza Garden When most people think about planting a garden in the spring, they think about the fresh vegetables they will be eating all summer. While vegetables are packed with good nutrients, a garden provides many other benefits as well. This year, make planting and tending a garden a family affair, and everyone will harvest the benefits. “Digging in the dirt is just plain fun for little children. Why not give them some seeds to put in that dirt to see what they can produce?” said Tammy Roberts, nutrition and health education specialist with the University of Missouri Extension. “If a child has grown and harvested their own food, they are much more likely to eat it. Also, learning to use small garden tools can be good for the development of gross- and fine motor skills for children.” When we think about planning and caring for the garden, we usually are thinking about the healthful benefits of the food. Make no mistake; while you are paying attention to the chore at hand, your body is benefitting from a good workout as well.

Quality You Can Trust like a delicious, fresh salad on a piece of flatbread. It’s also the perfect recipe to get your children into the kitchen to help prepare their own meals and to eat more vegetables!

GARDEN FRESH PIZZA This fresh, easy pizza is the perfect way to bring your children into the kitchen. Older children can slice the softer vegetables using a disposable serrated plastic knife. Younger children can pick the herbs and tear them. Spreading the cheese and placing the vegetables on the pizza crust can be a fun, family affair. Best of all, your pizza is edible art!

“Did you know you are actually doing some strength-training exercises while you work in the garden? Next time you are carrying a watering bucket or large flowerpot, just think about how that can help your muscles,” said Roberts. Maintaining muscle mass is an important part of assuring good flexibility and balance. And when you are bonetired from getting up and down, know that the slow movement of getting from a sitting to a standing position is good for maintaining your muscles and bones. Gardening also is very good for the mind. Children can learn many science lessons in the garden from the benefits of some bugs to how compost is made and helps the garden grow. Adults exercise their brain power in many ways, such as researching new plants they want to grow, finding the best method to manage pests and learning how to irrigate the garden. Gardening is good for the mind in another way -- it can boost your mood. You can go to the garden in a rotten mood, but it’s pretty hard to leave the same way, especially if you are carrying your first ripe red tomato! Gardening also is the perfect way to introduce children to healthy eating habits that they will continue for the rest of their lives. Once your beautiful herbs and vegetables are ready to eat, try preparing my simple recipe for Garden Fresh Pizza. It’s

1 container (6.5 oz) 50 percent-less-fat garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese 1/2 cup sliced, fresh mushrooms 1/2 cup finely diced, seeded cucumber 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, optional ? 1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Lightly mist a 12-inch pizza pan or cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the pizza crust on the pan. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes to crisp the pizza crust. 2. Using a food processor or blender, puree 1/2 cup each of the spinach, the tomatoes, carrots, 1/4 cup of the green onions, and the basil, oregano, salt and pepper to make a chunky sauce. 3. Spread the cheese over the pizza crust and the vegetable sauce over the cheese. Place the remaining spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms and cucumber on the pizza. Sprinkle with remaining the carrots and green onions. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Cut pizza into 4 wedges to serve.

1 package (12-inch) prebaked, thin Italian pizza crust, like Boboli Non-stick cooking oil spray 1 cup chopped fresh spinach 1 large tomato, chopped (about 1 cup) 3/4 cup shredded carrots 1/2 cup green onions, roots removed, white and green parts, chopped 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper
