KENTUCKY DERBY by Kathy Wolfe

CHILDREN’S SPECIAL

And they’re off! Every year, the first Saturday in May marks “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” the annual Kentucky Derby. Tidbits offers some fascinating facts about the “Run for the Roses,” a contest for three-year-old thoroughbred horses held every year since 1875. • Construction on the racetrack now known as Churchill Downs was begun in Louisville, Kentucky in 1874. It was the brainstorm of Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., the grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Clark leased 80 acres of land from his uncles John and Henry Churchill, and raised $32,000 for constructions costs by

selling membership subscriptions to the track for $100 each. • The first Kentucky Derby was held in May of 1875 before a crowd of 10,000 spectators. Fifteen three-year-old thoroughbreds pounded around the track and the contest was won by a chestnut named Aristides. The original race was 1.5 miles (2.41 km), compared to today’s 1.25 miles (2.01 km). Aristides accomplished the distance in just under 2:38. In 1896 it was determined that 1.5 miles was too long a distance for three-year-old horses so early in the spring, and the race length was shortened. turn the page for more!

KENTUCKY DERBY (continued): • When race fans showed up for the 1895 event, they were met by a brand-new grandstand featuring the Twin Spires. A 24-year-old draftsman designed the Spires, which have become a familiar landmark to the Derby crowd. • At a party hosted by a socialite following the 1883 Derby, all the ladies were presented with roses. Track founder Meriwether Lewis Clark was in attendance and it’s believed he conceived the idea of declaring the rose the race’s official flower from that experience. But it wasn’t until 1896 that a bouquet of pink and white roses was first presented to the winner, and it was 1932 before the garland of roses we see today was introduced. The term “Run for the Roses” was coined by a sports columnist in 1925. The blanket of roses bestowed upon the owner of the winning horse is composed of more than 500 red roses sewn onto a green satin backing. In addition, the jockey receives 60 long-stemmed roses wrapped in 10 yards of ribbon. Owners frequently have the garland of roses freeze-dried to preserve it, and some even have a flower dipped in silver in commemoration of the win. • The two-minute mark has only been broken three times in Derby history, the first time in 1973 by the famed Secretariat. Nicknamed “Big Red,” the chestnut finished the course in 1:59.40, a record that still holds today as the fastest time ever. The second horse to finish in under two minutes was just a length and a half behind Secretariat. Sham, who was Secretariat’s dark brown half-cousin, had hit his face on the starting gate and knocked out a tooth.

Concerts

Although he bled severely throughout the race, Sham came in about one-fifth of a second behind the winner. The Derby was without an under-two-minute winner until 2001 when Monarchos finished in 1:59.97.

• In 1932, an 18-year-old jockey named Eugene James rode Burgoo King to victory at both the Derby and the Preakness. Sadly, just a year later, the young athlete drowned in Lake Michigan.

• During the early 1900’s, owners of Derby-winning horses began sending their thoroughbreds to Maryland’s Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes in New York. Although it wasn’t officially called the “Triple Crown” until 1930, the first winner of all three races was in 1919, a chestnut named Sir Barton. There have only been 11 Triple Crown winners, including Secretariat, who took the prize after a 25-year drought, setting records in all three races. There were back-to-back Triple Crown winners in 1977 (Seattle Slew) and Affirmed in 1978. There hasn’t been one since.

• The 1944 Derby winner was named Pensive and the victor in 1949 was Ponder. What was unusual about these two steeds? Pensive was the sire of Ponder and both horses won the Derby with the exact same time, 2:04.20. Ponder went on to sire the 1956 Derby winner, Needles.

• On those occasions when two or more horses are in a dead heat and it’s impossible to see which crossed the line first, a “photo finish” is needed to determine the winner. The first time this was used at the Kentucky Derby was in 1947, when a photo at the finish line concluded that Jet Pilot was the winning horse. • For almost 100 years, the mint julep has been the traditional beverage of the Derby. Each year, 120,000 juleps are served on Derby Weekend at Churchill Downs, requiring more than 10,000 bottles of Early Times Kentucky Whiskey, 1,000 lbs. (454 kg) of fresh mint, and 60,000 lbs. (27,215 kg) of ice. Spectators can expect a price of $11 per glass. Along with the juleps, a thick stew called Burgoo is traditionally served, a concoction of a mixture of meats, including pork, beef, chicken, and mutton, along with vegetables and barbecue sauce.

• Until 2005, only the first four finishers received a share of the Derby’s purse money. The rules were then changed to award a potion to the fifth-place winner as well. • The Derby has had a number of notable firsts. It was broadcast live on the radio for the first time in 1925, with the first national television coverage occurring in 1952. The size of the purse topped the $100,000 mark for the first time in 1954. (This year, the purse will be $2,180,000, with $1,240,000 of that amount awarded to the winner.) In 1968, Dancer’s Image became the first winner to be disqualified after traces of drugs were found in its system. The Derby’s first woman jockey was Diane Crump who rode Phantom in 1970. Diane came in 15th out of 17. Jockeys were allowed to wear advertising logos on their silks for the first time in 2004. • More than 165,000 people attended the 2012 Kentucky Derby, setting an attendance record. Tickets can be had for as little as $80 for general admission or as much as $5,000.

FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD:

ROSA PARKS

Often referred to as “The Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement,” Rosa Parks was one of the most influential leaders in African-American history. Let’s learn more about this courageous woman who championed the cause for desegregation. • Born in Alabama to a carpenter father and a teacher mother, Rosa was a sickly child who was raised on her grandparents’ farm following the separation of her parents. Home-schooled until the age of 11, Rosa then attended the Industrial School for Girls in Montgomery. At age 21, she married a barber named Raymond Parks, and finished her uncompleted high school diploma. • Segregation in the South called for separate restrooms, drinking fountains, and seating areas on public transportation. The first four rows of city buses were “Whites Only,” with blacks forced to sit at the very back. If the bus was full when a white person boarded the bus, blacks were made to move, stand, or get off the bus. Blacks were also not allowed to sit across the aisle from a white person, and had to enter the bus from the back so as not to walk past a white at the front. • When Rosa landed a job at a local department store, she rode the city bus to and from work each day. On a December day in 1955, as she was headed for home, she

boarded the bus and took a seat in the 11th row, the first row of the section reserved for blacks. The bus filled up and three whites were standing. The driver demanded that four black people give up their seats. Three black men moved, but Rosa slid over to the window seat, refusing to surrender her place. • The police were called in and Rosa was arrested for violating city code and disorderly conduct. The ironic part was that she had not technically broken any law. The law in place for over 50 years stated that no passenger could be forced to give up a seat or stand on a crowded bus. Her 30minute trial declared her guilty, penalizing her with $14 in fines and court costs. • Within four days, a boycott of Montgomery’s city buses was in place, organized in part by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who declared, “…it is more honorable to walk in dignity than ride in humiliation.” More than 90% of the city’s black residents refused to ride the buses. Carpools were set up, with those who owned vehicles volunteering their services. Because 75% of bus customers were black, the finances of the public bus companies plunged. Yet it still took 381 days for agreement to be reached on the end of segregation. • Rosa later moved to Detroit, where she worked for a U.S. Congressman until age 75. In 1992, she published her autobiography. Rosa was the recipient of 20+ honorary doctorates from universities around the world. She was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a civilian. Time magazine designated her as one of the 20 most influential figures of the 20th century.

JUST JOCKEYS

Kentucky Derby week seems like the time to take a look at a few of the greatest jockeys of all time. Follow along and pick up a little knowledge about these legends. • Two jockeys share the record for the most Derby wins, Eddie Arcaro and Bill Hartack, each with five. Arcaro was the first to accomplish this feat, with his first win in 1938 at age 22, followed by victories in 1941, 1945, 1948, and 1952. Arcaro is also the record-holder for the most American classic race wins, and the only rider to win the Triple Crown twice. He triumphed in 17 Triple Crown races, including the five Derbys, and six each in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. As a small youth, rejection for a spot on the baseball team pushed him to excel in a different area. He stood just 5’2” (1.6 m) when fully grown. At the 1959 Belmont Stakes, Eddie seemed destined for his 7th win, but his horse fell and Eddie was thrown into a large puddle of water and was narrowly saved from drowning. Riding helmets had very recently been introduced to the sport and Arcaro claimed his had saved his life. His lifetime record was 4,779 wins. • Bill Hartack won his first Kentucky Derby in 1957 at age 24. He was favored to win the next year, but just two weeks before the Derby, he broke his leg and another jockey rode the horse Tim Tam, who won the race.

For Advertising Information Call 954-667-3237 Hartack was the nation’s leading jockey four different times, and was the first to attain $3 million purse winnings in a year. • Standing just 4’11” (1.5m) tall and weight 96 lbs. (43.5 kg), Willie Shoemaker was just 17 when he rode a horse in a race for the first time. Although he finished fifth in that first race, by his third race, he was in the winner’s circle. By week two, he had won seven races. He won his first Kentucky Derby in 1955 at age 23, and his second four years later. It would be six years before his next Churchill Downs victory, but Willie wasn’t finished yet. Twenty-one years later in 1986, Shoemaker won his fourth and final Derby at age 54, making him the oldest Derby winner in history. Although he had won 11 Triple Crown races over the course of four different decades – four Derbys, five Belmont Stakes, and three Preakness Stakes – he never achieved the Crown itself. He set a world record with 8,833 winning races, and accomplished the amazing feat of winning six races in one day, six different times in his career. Shoemaker retired in 1990 and tragedy struck just one year later when his vehicle plunged off a 50-foot embankment, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. He still managed to succeed as a horse trainer until 1997. • Steve Cauthen is the last jockey to win the Triple Crown, a feat achieved in 1978 astride the horse Affirmed. He was also the youngest jockey to take the title – Cauthen had been 18 less than a week when he won the Derby. At 19, he became the first jockey to win $6 million in a single season. Yet he rode in the Kentucky Derby only once! Because he had trouble meeting U.S. weight requirements, he moved to England where weight restrictions were higher, and he went on to become the British Champion Jockey three times.

Eating More Meat, Dairy, and Other Unhealthful Foods Leads to Worse Aging

Component of Animal Products Increases Risk of Heart Disease A byproduct of dietary choline, a component abundantly present in animal products, can lead to greater risk for heart attack, stroke, and death, according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers followed 4,007 participants and found that those who had the highest levels of these byproducts were 2.5 times as likely to suffer from an adverse cardiovascular event, compared with those who had the lowest levels. The authors point out that a vegetarian or high-fiber diet can reduce choline intake and modulate the risk for heart disease. Another recent study showed a similar mechanism for carnitine-rich meat products and heart disease.

Exercise Does Not Determine Children’s Body Weight Physical activity does not influence preschoolers’ weight, according to a new study from Germany. Researchers analyzed data from 92 children aged 3 to 6 years old for an average of seven consecutive days and found that exercise played no role in overweight or obesity status of children. The study found that socioeconomic status did influence weight status. The study confirms the findings of previous studies showing that, while exercise has health benefits, it has little to do with body weight, and a lack of exercise is not a factor in the epidemic of childhood obesity.

After an average 16-year follow-up, people who consumed a “Western-type” diet, including a high intake of red and processed meats, whole dairy products, and fried foods, were more likely to die prematurely and to suffer from various chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, cancer, and mental health disorders, compared with people who avoided such dietary patterns. Researchers analyzed data from 5,350 participants from the WhitehalI II study in London and scored dietary patterns using the Alternative Healthy Eating Index (AHEI) to assess disease risk. People with better AHEI scores had better overall health outcomes as they aged.

Increased Mercury Leads to Increased Risk of Diabetes People exposed to mercury in young adulthood are more likely to develop diabetes later in life, according to a new study published by the American Diabetes Association. Researchers followed 2,875 Americans for an average of 18 years. Those who were exposed to the most mercury were 65 percent more likely to develop diabetes, compared with those who had the least mercury exposure. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the most common way Americans are exposed to mercury is through eating fish.

Husband Thrashes About During Sleep DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My 73-year-old husband has, in the past year, been jerking during his sleep. His movements are quite wild at times. He has fallen out of bed three times during his “fighting” dreams. He dreams he is in a fight at work, playing football or shooting things. Just last night, it was killing mice. He jerks with his arms and legs. I don’t attempt to wake him, as one time he was on the verge of striking me. I did yell his name three times, and he finally woke up. He has had two sleep tests and was told he has “half sleep apnea.” What does that mean?

Sometimes periodic limb movements of sleep occur with another problem, restless leg syndrome. That’s a creepycrawly sensation in the legs that comes on in the evening when sitting or in bed. The person is compelled to get up and move around to quell the feeling. A warm bath before going to bed might calm your husband’s movements. Decreasing the amount of caffeine he drinks and doing the same for all forms of tobacco could bring nocturnal peace for you and him. If the situation doesn’t clear, then Mirapex or Requip, two Parkinson’s disease medicines, can put an end to the nighttime martial arts. Do tell his doctor about this. Periodic limb movements of sleep are, at times, associated with iron deficiency. I have no idea what “half sleep apnea” means.

He takes no sleeping aids. I have never heard that such movements are a sign of sleep apnea. -- D.S. ANSWER: A good bet is that your husband has a condition called periodic limb movements of sleep. For many, such movements are bending of the big toe and ankle. For others, it’s jerking of the legs and arms. Most often the person doesn’t waken and has no recollection of what went on during the night. The bed partner and the condition of the blankets give testimony to what occurred during sleep. If the person doesn’t have daytime fatigue, then this disorder isn’t considered a sleep problem for him or her. • On May 15, 1942, gasoline rationing begins in 17 Eastern states as an attempt to help the American war effort during World War II. By the end of the year, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had ensured that mandatory gasoline rationing was in effect in all 50 states.

ANSWER: Nearly everyone has had a twitchy eyelid at some time in life. It’s not a sign of illness. It’s not something that lasts for any length of time. Fatigue, stress and caffeinated beverages all have been implicated as causes. But most people with a twitchy lid are like you; they have and do none of these things.

• On May 18, 1861, the Humboldt Times newspaper casts first lady Mary Todd Lincoln in an unflattering light when it recounts a tale of how Mrs. Lincoln had usurped her husband’s presidential duty of appointing federal offices. According to the report, Mary Todd Lincoln took it upon herself to appoint a stranger to any office he desired.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Every now and then, my eyelid twitches. I don’t think it’s due to me being tired, because it can happen when I am wide awake in the morning. And I don’t think it’s due to stress -I love my work. Furthermore, I don’t drink any caffeinated beverages. What do you think is the significance of this? -- H.R.

• On May 16, 1717, French writer Francois-Marie Arouet, better known as Voltaire, is imprisoned in the Bastille. His satirical attack on politics and religion had infuriated the government, and Voltaire was arrested. Several times in his life, Voltaire was forced to flee one step ahead of arrest.

• On May 17, 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court hands down a unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, ruling that racial segregation in public education is unconstitutional. The decision dealt with Linda Brown, a young black girl who had been denied admission to her local elementary school. • On May 19, 1967, one of the first major treaties designed to limit the spread of nuclear weapons goes into effect as the Soviet Union ratifies an agreement banning nuclear weapons from outer space. The United States, Great Britain and several dozen other nations had already signed and/or ratified the treaty. • On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul II is shot and wounded at St. Peter’s Square in Rome by Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca. Agca claimed that he had planned to go to England to kill the king, but it turned out there was only a queen and “Turks don’t shoot women.” (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

A washcloth soaked in warm water and placed on the involved, closed lid for a few minutes generally can stop the twitching. Or gentle massage of the involved, closed lid also can end it. If it continues and lasts for longer periods, then a doctor has to be consulted. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

The divine purpose for the human race is covered in the following statement: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28. The birth of a human being comes from this divine purpose, who orders the birth of each new human being on earth. Someone who is considered a blessed servant of God must assist in this true miracle. Through his profession, Dr. Faris A. Hanna is that blessed instrument, helping materialize this beautiful gift that we call Life.

HOLLYWOOD -- Get ready for “the end of the world as we know it.” Following the $120 million Tom Cruise/ Morgan Freeman epic “Oblivion” are five more films. They start June 7 with Will and Jaden Smith’s $130 million “After Earth,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan, followed by James Franco/Seth Rogan’s science-fiction comedy “This Is the Earth” on June 12. Next, we’ll finally see the long-awaited $200 million Brad Pitt vehicle “World War Z” on June 21, the same date as “Pacific Rim” debuts featuring “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam. Aug. 9 brings Matt Damon and Jody Foster in the $120 million “Elysium.” All are “low budget” compared with the most expensive film ever made: “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” which cost $300 million, but grossed nearly a billion dollars. David Spade (“Rules of Engagement”/”Just Shoot Me”) has a You Tube video lampooning celebrities doing reverse-mortgage commercials. For five minutes he lists his credits, but never gets around to reverse mortgages. While it’s very funny, it’s really not a laughing matter. Some of these reverse mortgage companies have recruited trustworthy celebrities such as Robert Wagner (“Hart to Hart”), Henry “The Fonz” Winkler (“Happy Days), Fred Thompson (“Law & Order”), Pat Boone (1950s pop singer), Barbara Eden (“I Dream of Jeannie”) and Wayne Rogers of “M.A.S.H.”

Hathaway makes $10 million a picture, but as usual, the men make more. Mark Wahlberg makes $27 million a pop, Johnny Depp and Will Smith get $30 million a picture; Ben Stiller gets $33 million; Brad Pitt earns $35.5 million; Adam Sandler and Dwayne Johnson pull in $36 million each; while Leonardo DiCaprio’s $37 million pales by comparison to Tom Cruise’s $75 million a film. That’s one neighborhood I’d love to cruise through anytime! (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

20445 Biscayne Blvd suite H6 aventura, Florida 33180 This inspiring new book documents their sometimes turbulent but always loving relationship. It is a combination of personal diary entries, photographs and correspondence, but what makes “Carrie and Me” so exceptional is its unflinchingly honest account of the sometimes bumpy journey they shared.

• Want a refreshing, low-cal beverage that’s seriously inexpensive and feels lavish? Fill a pretty glass pitcher with ice water and add some sliced cucumber. It looks straight out of the spa, and it’s pretty tasty, too. • “We packed away all of our winter items, as it’s finally starting to feel like springtime, but one thing we didn’t pack away is the small packets of hand or foot warmers. These are packs that, when exposed to air, heat up and provide moderate heat for several hours. The ones we bought have adhesive on one side, and we can slap them on our baby’s bottle to warm it when we’re out and about. They really work.” -- R.G. in New York ¥ No time in the morning to wash and blow-dry your hair? Use a refreshing mist and just do the sides. Keep some dry shampoo around. Use it and give your hair a quick blast with the dryer.

• “Did you know that there’s as much or more sugar in those delicious frozen coffee drinks as there is in a soda or Carrie was only 3 years old when “The Carol Burnett Show” a milkshake? I didn’t realize it, and since I have switched to sugar-free, and only sometimes, I have noticed the difference. Pay attention to what’s in your beverage!” -C.C. in Ohio • Ready to hit the beach or lakeside? Make your own sneaky, secure money keeper by cleaning out an empty bottle of sunscreen. Choose one that has a wide mouth if you can. If not, try to make an even cut at the top of the label. Then just slide the bottle open, put your valuables in and secure with tape.

premiered in 1967. Despite the demands for Carol’s time, she made certain she provided all of the necessary norms to properly raise Carrie and her two sisters. But when the show wrapped in 1978, there were signs of trouble.

Recommended Reading “Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story” by Carol Burnett (Simon & Schuster, $24.99) Reviewed by Larry Cox

Most people are aware of the amazing Carol Burnett and her extraordinary career. What many might not know is that Carol’s daughter, Carrie, also was an incredible woman. Carrie was an actress, writer, musician and director whose zest for life was infectious. Unfortunately, that life was cut short by lung cancer. She died at age 38.

For example, when Carrie’s grades dropped, Carol hoped it was just her daughter going through an awkward juniorhigh stage. But she soon learned that Carrie had discovered drugs -- a major concern since Carol’s parents had died of alcoholism. After several failed efforts at rehab, Carrie emerged victorious and once again took control of her life. Carrie entered Pepperdine University, where she pursued acting, music and writing. She eventually found a cabin in Gunnison, Colo., where she continued her work, including several collaborations with her mother. In fact, it was in Colorado where she began work on “Sunrise in Memphis,” a story about a girl’s road trip through the South and a cowboy she meets along the way. It’s also when her health began to decline. Burnett writes: “I can honestly say that just about everyone who knew Carrie loved her. Maybe that’s because she loved them right back.” Those few words sum up the relationship she had with her daughter, and is a fitting tribute. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

THREE FLORIDA PUBLIC ART PROGRAMS TO HOST SLOW ART DAY EVENTS FLORIDA, US- For the first time ever, three Florida based public art programs will host Slow Art Day events on April 27th. Slow Art Day is a worldwide event in which people look at a few selected works of art slowly and then get together to discuss what they have seen. More than 261 Slow Art Day events will take place worldwide, many of them at Florida art museums, galleries and public art venues. The Florida public art programs hosting Slow Art Day events include Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs, St. Lucie County Art in Public Places and Broward County Public Art & Design. All three are members of the Florida Association of Public Art Professionals (FAPAP). Florida is renowned for its beaches and theme parks, so many people will be amazed to learn that there are over 70 public art programs in the state; from Key West to Tallahassee. Public art can be found in Florida parks, on city

streets, college campuses, libraries, government buildings, airports and even cruise ship terminals throughout the state. Public art may take the form of exciting landmark sculptures, artist designed parks, whimsical water features, fascinating light displays or special public art events and displays. FAPAP was established in 1998 to facilitate discussion about public art issues and support the profession in Florida. Members include public art program administrators, project managers, artists and interested individuals. The group publishes a monthly newsletter and hosts an annual conference to facilitate professional development and to recognize the best Florida public art projects. FAPAP members were introduced to Slow Art Day by Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Administrator, Leslie Fordham. When exploring the Slow Art Day website, Fordham noticed that there was a gap - most Slow Art Day venues were museums and galleries. Fordham decided to host a Slow Art Day event in Fort Lauderdale where participants will look at public art slowly, and encouraged fellow FAPAP members to do the same. “We want people to get to know the public art in Florida,” said FAPAP President and Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Director, Terry Olson when explaining why he

In St. Lucie County, Slow Food is joining with the Art in Public Places (AIPP) program to tour up to five pieces funded by the County’s public art ordinance. Some of the aartists who created the public art will be on site to talk about their work and slow food will be available for sale along the way. There will be both a walking and U-drive portion to the St. Lucie event followed by discussion at a cafe in Fort Pierce. Phil Terry, founder of Slow Art Day says “when people look at art slowly, they make discoveries.” It’s easy to take part in Slow Art Day, just visit the website and locate an event, sign up and then meet at the public art venue. No special knowledge of art is needed and there is no cost to participate in a public art Slow Art Day event!

By Samantha Mazzotta

Wood Deck Stain vs. Water Seal Q: The house I just bought has a wooden deck in the back that has turned gray over the years. It’s otherwise structurally sound. My question is, should I seal the deck against further water damage, or just stain it to the color I want and not worry about sealing it? -- Judy H., Waycross, Ga. A: It’s really up to you. Just staining the deck will give you the color you want, although in high-traffic areas the stain could wear away quickly. Many deck companies recommend using a combination stain/sealer product, which is basically a sealer with pigment added. The advantage of this, they say, is the sealer provides additional protection against water and weather damage, while the stain helps reduce fading from UV rays.

Stir the sealer (don’t shake it -- bubbles will form in it) or stain and apply a thin coat to a couple of boards at a time using a long-handled paint roller. Don’t overapply -- the finish will not dry correctly and will feel tacky for days, at least. If the finish puddles up, use another roller or a broom to spread out the puddles. To stain or seal corners, use a paintbrush. If you feel a second coat is needed, apply it in the same way, very thinly. Let the finish dry for at least 24 hours. A note about cleanup: Any rags or cloths used to clean up spills or excess should not be piled up together. The evaporating finish can ignite and cause a fire. Wash rags by hand -- if you applied a water-based finish, use soapy water; if you applied an oil-based finish, use mineral spirits or paint thinner, then rinse -- and hang them outdoors to dry, spaced well apart.

HOME TIP: Every few months, check to make sure your deck is still sealed by pouring a small amount of water on the wood. If it beads up, the deck is fine.

Sealers should last at least a year, with some lasting up to three years. You have a choice of either water-based or oil-based sealer; many professionals recommend oil-based products, which last longer.

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.

Since you’ve just purchased the house and might not know when the deck was last maintained, consider having a professional deck contractor inspect it. Find out if there are any hidden issues, whether the deck needs maintenance prior to staining or sealing it. The deck will likely need to be cleaned and may need to be sanded and pressurewashed prior to sealing or staining.

(c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Once you’ve inspected and cleaned the deck, you can apply a stain or sealer (or both). If you decide to stain, pick a few sample colors that are a few shades darker or lighter than the shade you want. This is because different types or different conditions of deck wood can cause the color of the stain to appear different from the swatch color. Test each sample in an inconspicuous place and pick the best color for your wood. Apply the stain or sealer on a dry day when the temperature

-- three times as many under as the over 65 group.

Saving Money at Cost of Health Just because the doctor prescribes a medication, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean we take it. A recent study by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that many of us avoid purchasing or taking the drugs that are prescribed for us in an attempt to save money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder: In one year alone, we spend more than $45 billion in out-of-pocket drug costs. The results of the CDC study were broken down into two age groups: those 18-64 and those 65 and older. Here are some of its findings: --Younger adults were twice as likely as seniors to skip needed medications to save money. --Some 23 percent of uninsured adults between 18 and 64 skipped taking their medications to reduce costs, compared with about 14 percent of those with Medicaid and 9 percent with private insurance. --About 13 percent of patients ages 18-64 did not take medication as prescribed, including missing doses, taking less medicine and delaying filling a prescription. --20 percent asked their doctor for a lower-cost medication -- equally split between those over and under age 65. However, for seniors over age 65, those on Medicareonly were the largest group in both asking for a cheaper prescription and not taking the medication as prescribed. --2 percent bought prescription drugs from another country -- equally split between those over and under 65. --6 percent of patients ages 18-64 used alternative therapies

Skipping doses of medication can have serious results, depending what the illness is. Antibiotics for infection need to be taken for the full course of treatment, or the infection can come back even stronger. Many drugs are dosed by patient weight or level of the drug in the blood steam. Overall, not taking prescribed medication results in increased emergencyroom visits, poor health status, increased hospitalization and cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks, to the tune of $290 billion per year. As an alternative to skipping medications, request a cheaper alternative, such as a generic. Ask for help with diet and exercise to increase levels of health. If you have insurance, inquire about a prescription rider to your policy to cover drugs.

Research pharmaceutical companies that give free or reduced medications to those who qualify as lowincome. Contact Partnership for Prescription Assistance (www.pparx.org, or call 1-888477-2669) to see if you qualify. Check FamilyWize drug discounts at familywize.org. Read the site carefully. There is a good chance your pharmacy will give you a discount, with average savings of 35 percent.
