TIDBITS® IS READING A FEW

MAGAZINES by Kathy Wolfe

Did you know that about 7,500 magazines are published in America? Some are very familiar titles, others not so much! Tidbits takes some time to look at the history of one of our favorite sources of information and reading material.

● Benjamin Franklin came up with the idea of publishing America’s first magazine in 1741. He put his plans in place, but just three days before his American Magazine came out in print, Andrew Bradford beat him to the punch with General Magazine. Perhaps the nation wasn’t ready for such publications, because Bradford’s magazine lasted just three issues, and Franklin ceased printing his after six issues. A few others, including Christian History in 1743, tried their hand at publishing, but it wasn’t until 1821 that the first truly successful U.S. magazine, The Saturday Evening Post, hit the stands. ● The Saturday Evening Post was a weekly publication that quickly grew to become the most widely circulated weekly magazine in America, and the first to reach the 1,000,000 copies sold mark. The Post featured articles, human interest stories, cartoons, poetry, and features by wellknown authors. It may be best remembered for its covers that featured paintings by artist Norman Rockwell. Rockwell’s first cover was in May, 1916, and over the next 50 years, he provided more than 300 paintings for the magazine’s cover. Turn the page for more!

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

Pets Aren't Suitable Last-Minute Gifts DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My uncle told me he plans to purchase two birds that he saw on sale at a flea market last weekend, and will give them as gifts to my daughters. I told him that the birds are not appropriate gifts, as my children are too young to take care of pets. However, he's insisting that this is the gift they'll get from him, and he doesn't have time to think of another gift. What can I do? -- Carmen D., Lawrence, Mass. DEAR CARMEN: Stand fast, and don't cave in to your uncle's insistence that he give the girls these birds for Christmas. You're their mother, and you've clearly determined that they're not ready for this responsibility. Of course, families being what they are, there's a good chance your uncle will show up on the doorstep with two

birds in a cage. If so, either convince him to take the birds back, or take them back to the market yourself. Or, explain the situation to the local pet shelter to see if they can find someone to adopt the birds. Hopefully, it won't come to that and your uncle will respect your wishes and find a better gift. Caring for a pet is a big responsibility, as you know, and picking one up as a last-minute gift is a terrible idea. Many shelters restrict or slow down adoptions during the holidays. Unfortunately, puppy mills and disreputable sellers do a booming business at times like these as adults look for the perfect present for kids. Pets aren't just a cute holiday surprise, they're a forever gift. The busy holiday season probably isn't the best time to find out if your family is ready to take on the responsibility of caring for a pet -- no matter what its size.

MAGAZINES (continued) ● LIFE magazine debuted in 1936 and is credited with establishing photojournalism. Publisher Henry Luce had already achieved great success with TIME, and wanted a publication that told the story in pictures. LIFE’s first cover featured a photo of Montana’s Fort Peck Dam, and the issue sold 380,000 copies. Just four months later, circulation was up over one million copies a week. LIFE was published weekly for 37 years. ● Henry Luce’s next success story was Sports Illustrated, which debuted in 1954. His advisors strongly cautioned him about launching a magazine strictly devoted to sports. Two previous magazines of the same name had already failed during the 1930s and 1940s. The first issue’s featured article was about Roger Bannister, who had broken the four-minute-mile barrier three months earlier. The cover was a photo of Milwaukee Braves third baseman Eddie Mathews. Michael Jordan holds the record for the most appearances on the cover of SI, with 50 covers. The team that’s been honored the most times is the New York Yankees, with a record 71. Over 23 million people read Sports Illustrated every week. ● The Lady’s Magazine is considered the first significant women’s magazine. First published in London in 1770, it contained essays on female virtues, fashion advice, hints for wives and mothers, medicinal recipes, and embroidery patterns. Upwards of 150,000 American women were reading Godey’s Lady’s Book when the Civil War broke out, making it the most widely circulated magazine in the country.

● On Jan. 9, 1776, writer Thomas Paine publishes his pamphlet "Common Sense," setting forth his arguments in favor of American independence. Originally published anonymously, "Common Sense" is considered one of the most influential pamphlets in American history. ● On Jan. 8, 1916, Rembrandt Bugatti, a sculptor and younger brother of Italian auto designer and manufacturer Ettore Bugatti, commits suicide at the age of 31. Bugatti's sculpture of a dancing elephant was featured as a hood ornament on a 1920s Bugatti Royale auto. ● On Jan. 12, 1926, the two-man radio comedy series "Sam 'n' Henry" (later named "Amos 'n' Andy") debuts in Chicago. Freeman Gosden and Charles Carrell, both white, played characters who were two black men from the Deep South. Over the next 22 years, the show would become the highest-rated comedy in radio history. ● On Jan. 11, 1935, American aviator Amelia Earhart departs Wheeler Field in Honolulu on a solo flight to North America. Hawaiian commercial interests offered a $10,000 award to whoever accomplished the flight first. The next day, after traveling 2,400 miles in 18 hours, Earhart safely landed at Oakland Airport in Oakland, Calif. ● On Jan. 7, 1959, just six days after the fall of the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in Cuba, U.S. officials recognize the new provisional government of the island nation. Despite fears that Fidel Castro might have communist leanings, the U.S. government believed that it could work with the new regime. ● On Jan. 10, 1961, Dashiell Hammett, author of "The Maltese Falcon," dies. Hammett left school at age 13, eventually landing at Pinkerton's detective agency. He worked as a detective for eight years and turned his experiences into "hard-boiled" crime fiction. ● On Jan. 6, 1975, a crowd of 2,000-plus lines up outside Boston Garden to buy tickets to the rock band Led Zeppelin. Someone pried open the Garden's locked doors around midnight, and soon hundreds of beerdrinking, bottle-throwing Led Zeppelin fans had the run of the arena.

● It was noted wit Ambrose Bierce who defined an egotist as "a person more interested in himself than in me." ● If you could go back in time and sample a beer from the 1700s, you would find it to be significantly stronger than similar libations that are served today. The higher alcohol content helped the brew survive the long voyage from England to colonial India. ● Those who study such things say that roughly half of American women remove hair from their bikini area. Perhaps unsurprisingly, as women age, they become less likely to keep up the shaving or waxing, with only 19 percent of women aged 50-plus doing so. In Brazil, though, the practice is far more widespread; there, 65 percent of women in the 50-plus age group reported bikini hair removal. ● The average horse will produce 10 gallons of saliva every day. ● Historians claim that President John Quincy Adams kept a pet alligator in a White House bathroom. He reportedly was amused when unsuspecting guests had to make a trip to the loo.

● I wouldn't be surprised if you've never heard the word "pilgarlic" -- it's not a term you hear every day. Its literal meaning is "peeled garlic," but colloquially it was once used to describe a bald-headed person. ● In the U.S. in 1900, imported perfume was taxed at a higher rate than imported opium. ● If you are planning a trip to Hawaii, you might want to go to the Sea Life Park on Oahu. There you can see a rare creature: the wolphin. This cross between a killer whale and a bottle-nosed dolphin also reportedly exists in the wild, but I imagine they're a bit more difficult to find. Thought for the Day: "In any contest between power and patience, bet on patience." -- W.B. Prescott

It was renamed in 1897 and remained such until 2001 when Rosie O’Donnell became editorial director and changed the title to Rosie. Rosie lasted a little over a year. Female baby boomers may remember Betsy McCall paper dolls printed in McCall’s beginning in May, 1951. ● We started reading Better Homes and Gardens in 1922, Ladies’ Home Journal in 1883, Good Housekeeping in 1885, Redbook in 1903, Woman’s Day in 1931, followed by Family Circle in 1932. ● Adolescent girls got their very own magazine in 1944, when Seventeen hit the stands, bringing fashion, beauty, and dating tips. Early cover girls included Carol Lynley, Twiggy, Cybil Shepherd, Olga Korbut, and a 13-year-old Brooke Shields. ● The first issue of TV Guide was released in April of 1953, a comprehensive listing of the week’s television programs, TV-related news, celebrity interviews, program reviews, and crossword puzzles. Actress Lucille Ball was on the cover holding her newborn son, Desi Arnaz, Jr., whose birth had been written into the storyline of the popular sitcom I Love Lucy. ● In March of 1974, you could have purchased the inaugural issue of People magazine for 35 cents. The beautiful 29-yearold Mia Farrow was on the cover, the star of the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby. In 1985, the magazine introduced their new feature “Sexiest Man Alive,” with 29-year-old Mel Gibson capturing the first title. Since then, People has created their “World’s Most Beautiful People” and “Best & Worst Dressed” special issues.

The answer is: “He has been the host of the game show Jeopardy! since 1984.” Who is Alex Trebek? Let’s take a closer look at this interesting “category”! ● Alex Trebek’s father immigrated from Ukraine as a young child, settling in Ontario with his family. His marriage to a FrenchCanadian woman produced Alex in 1940. When Alex graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in philosophy in 1961, he used his experience from the college’s English Debating Society to land a job in broadcasting. The first step in his famous career was as a newscaster and sportscaster with the Canadian Broadcasting Company, Canada’s premier network at that time. ● In 1966, Trebek made a dramatic change from the journalism realm to hosting game shows. His first gig was the Canadian game show Reach for the Top, a position he held for seven years. In 1973, Trebek crossed the border to host his first U.S. game show, NBC’s The Wizard of Odds. The Wizard was short-lived, however, and the following year, Trebek became host of High Rollers. Between High Rollers and his selection as the new host of Jeopardy! in 1984, he had added Double Dare, The $128,000 Question, and Pitfall to his resume. ● After three years of hosting Jeopardy!, in 1987, Trebek added another game show to his schedule, Classic Concentration, hosting both shows simultaneously. In 1991, he made history by serving as the host to three game shows at once, when he took over as the host of To Tell the Truth. By the end of that year, Concentration and Truth had ended their series, and Trebek was back to one program. ● Jeopardy! has won 30 Emmy Awards, and Alex Trebek has been awarded five Emmys for Outstanding Game Show Host. During the 20042005 season, contestant Ken Jennings set the record for the most consecutive games, winning 74 games in a row, with earnings of more than $2.5 million. Speaking about Jennings’ streak, Alex said, “I spent more time with him than I did with my wife during that period.” ● Trebek films Jeopardy! two days a week, arriving at the studio around 6:30 AM. Five shows are taped each day, ending about 4:30 PM. About 25 million viewers tune into the program each week.

1. Is the book of Benaiah in the Old or New Testament or neither? 2. 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Galatians 2:20 are among the Bible's verses to focus on what in a new year? Blessings, Moving forward, Grace, Church attendance 3. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego went unscathed after being put into whose fiery furnace? Satan's, Nebuchadnezzar's, Haman's, Laban's 4. Which book ends, "Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen"? 1 John, Jude, Mark, Amos 5. What "people of" had a fly god named Baal-zebub? Ethiopia, Pergamos, Ekron, Gibeah 6. From Psalms 60:8, who is my washpot? Balaam, Moab, Aaron, Micah

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 ALEX TREBEK (continued) ● This famous host’s life isn’t all about games! Trebek also hosts the National Geographic Bee and the Great Canadian Geography Challenge. In 1996, he was an Olympic torchbearer in Jacksonville, Florida, along the journey to Atlanta, Georgia. Trebek became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1998. You can find his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame near that of Ann-Margret and Vincent Price. Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto features Trebek’s maple leaf. ● Trebek says he does a crossword puzzle every day in an attempt to stave off the dangers of Alzheimer’s Disease. Not surprisingly, he’s fluent in French, but he also speaks some German, Italian, Spanish, and Russian. He and his wife own a 700-acre thoroughbred horse farm, Creston Farms, near Templeton, California. It’s rumored that he will retire from Jeopardy! at the end of his 32nd season in 2016. Trebek offers this advice to others, “Take your job seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously.”

JANUARY EVENTS There are lots of things to celebrate during the month of January! Let’s take a look at a few things taking place this month. ● January is National Polka Music Month. It commemorates a genre of dance music that had its origins in the mid-1800s in Bohemia, which is now part of today’s Czech Republic. The word “polka” has its origins in the Czech language word pulka, meaning “half-step,” denoting the quick shift from one foot to the other. The polka was introduced into ballrooms in Prague in 1835 and by 1840, it had spread to Paris. A variety of instruments are played in traditional polka music, depending on the culture, including the clarinet, trumpet, accordion, banjo, and the tuba, whose “oom-pah” notes are often associated with the polka. The state of Wisconsin has designated the polka its official state dance, and “The Beer Barrel Polka” is played during the seventh inning stretch at the Milwaukee Brewers games and at half-time during the Milwaukee Bucks games.

Creamy Scrambled Eggs for a Crowd Short-order cooks seem to have a way of turning out delicious, creamy eggs cooked to everyone's liking. It's not difficult, but it does require good technique. Here's how: Cook the eggs slowly, gently pushing them into the center of the skillet as they cook, which makes soft, creamy curds.

Online at www.lovemytidbits.com JANUARY EVENTS (continued) ● This is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, a time to learn more about one of the leading causes of blindness. Unfortunately, the damage to vision can occur so gradually, you may not notice any loss of vision until the disease is already advanced. Abnormally high pressure within the eye is usually the cause of the damage, with symptoms ranging from blurred vision and halos around lights to eye pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Early detection is the key to protecting your vision, with pressure tests recommended every one to two years after the age of 40. ● Not surprisingly, January is Get Organized Month, just in time for your New Year’s resolutions. Professional organizers say the first step is to organize your clutter into two piles, one for saving and the other for throwing out. It’s best to clean out your belongings before you think about organizing – don’t waste your time organizing stuff you don’t really need! The key to staying organized, experts say, is keeping things where they belong. Every object should have a consistent place where it is normally kept. ● It’s National Oatmeal Month, the perfect time to adjust your diet to include a healthy dose of oats. Oats contain a type of fiber known as betaglucan that has been proven to lower cholesterol by up to 23%. People who eat oats have less coronary heart disease, and their risk of Type 2 diabetes is substantially lowered. You can also lower your risk for colon cancer! Beta-glucan also contributes to a healthier immune system, enhancing the ability of the body’s immune cells to eliminate bacteria. And if that’s not enough, oats also help decrease asthma symptoms.

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

With the New Year coming soon, we have an opportunity to make some resolutions for changes in 2014. Even if we don't typically make resolutions, there are some that are worthwhile to consider. Here are a few: --Is your paperwork in order? If you have an ongoing claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs, keep everything in a file, newest on top. Do you have a list of your personal information, including date of birth, list of places and dates you served (include names of personnel you remember from then to jog your memory later, if necessary), DD-214 or equivalent, marriage certificate, children's birth certificates and lifeinsurance policy? If anything should happen to you, make it easier for your survivors: Have copies (print out online) of Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes, Claim for One Sum Payment Government Life Insurance, Claim for Monthly Payments National Service Life Insurance and Application for Standard Government Headstone or Marker. Gather all this information and keep it all in one place. --If you're not a member of a veterans service group, like American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars, join up. If you are a member, step forward and participate. Consider projects that would help other veterans and propose them to the group. Be an example: Set up regular dates to volunteer at the closest VA medical center. --Make a health goal and take small steps toward it on a regular basis. --If you have a mental-health concern but haven't sought treatment, stop trying to deal with it by yourself. Whether you have depression, possible PTSD or suicidal thoughts, there is help. There's no stigma attached to looking for a fix. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what others think or say. Your first responsibility is to yourself and being the best you can be.

Can Outdoor Furniture Outlast Winter? Q: My brother purchased new outdoor furniture for his deck this summer, some nice cedar chairs and end tables. But I'm astounded that he hasn't yet taken in or covered his new furniture yet. Even though we haven't had snow yet, the temperature change alone must be taking its toll. Should I warn him about leaving his expensive furniture outside in winter? -- Carey in Chicopee, Mass. A: I think warning him is a bit strong, particularly in this case. Cedar furniture designed for outdoor use can be

very resilient in most weather, something the dealer may have told your brother when he purchased the set. You can bring it up as part of a conversation about the furniture by asking if it's all-weather, and letting your brother tell you all about it. Considering how much quality cedar furniture costs, he's likely pretty proud of his purchase. Cedar outdoor furniture is desirable to many people. It's a durable wood, doesn't easily warp or rot, and resists insects. Unfinished cedar furniture starts out as a natural reddish color, which over time fades to gray as wind and weather season the wood. Owners who prefer the warmer reddish color can apply a wood sealer, or enhance the color using a wood stain. Paint or finishing oils aren't typically used with cedar furniture, since they can trap moisture, encouraging rot. Your brother can clean his furniture a few times a year with soap and water, and should avoid using a pressure

YOUR AD HERE washer or harsh solvents. If he's concerned about temperature extremes or ice and snow building up on the furniture, he can cover it or store it during the winter. Otherwise, don't worry about warning him about his outdoor furniture care choices. It's his property, after all, and he can leave the cedar furniture out if he wishes. HOME TIP: Clean mildew from unfinished wood furniture using a very mild bleach and water solution; rinse well, and make sure the wood dries completely. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. My e-book, "101 Best Home Tips," is available to download on Kindle! Pick it up it today for just 99 cents

It's one thing to read about the scams that are aimed at seniors -- and quite another to know someone who has been a victim. A good friend of mine recently learned that his very elderly mother had been giving money to scammers for a period of time. Needless to say, the whole family is in shock. How it began, no one is certain, but somehow scammers contacted his mother with enough of a sob story that she gave them money. Soon they called back, and yes, she gave them more. Then the scammers apparently gave out her name and phone number, and very soon this elderly woman was being called day and night -and giving money to multiple scammers. I imagine that she became fearful because of all the constant phone calls, and at some point she stopped answering the phone. Unable to reach her, one of her children called the police who went by on a welfare check. While the police were there, some of the scammers called. That's when the whole story came out. By the time they were cut off, scammers had taken nearly $200,000 from this senior. The family will never get the money back and the scammers likely will never be found. It's far too easy to become a victim of scammers who want your money. All you have to do is say "yes" one time. If you give them money just once, hoping they'll go away, the opposite will happen, and you'll be called more frequently and the pressure to give more will increase. Your name will be given to others who will do the same. If you've been pulled in by scammers, call the police now. Don't wait.

Preserve Your Family History! New book shows you how! “Hey Ron, here’s a copy of your family genealogy,” a close friend and distant relative said to me as he handed me a copy of a professionally prepared 200+ page book of our family tree. I thanked him for the surprise gift and promised to cherish it. It took a while but eventually I located my family branches. Once found, I closed the book and never looked at it again. Then it hit me, a genealogy is a wonderful thing to have but it lacks personality. It has boxes, lines, names, and dates, but has no character, soul, or vitality. I thought, “I sure would like to hear the story of the two brothers who came here from England in the1700s to start my family in the New World.” I wondered, “Why did one move to Chicago and the other to Missouri?” None of those answers were available in that book – just names, dates and places. Alas, I could do nothing about those relatives for whom nothing is written nor anything remembered. But I could do something about those who were still living. So here’s what I did: I created a system to take what is called an oral history of my own mom and dad. I spent hours researching and developed a unique question and answer format, then I recorded each of their life’s story on both audio and video tape. My next step was to put that system in a book so others could do the same. The origial 1988 version of the book titled “Your Family Heritage, a Guide to Preserving Family History,” sold for $19.95 and helped thousands of people across the land. I also lectured on the subject for several years at the Colorado Historical Society. Now this updated, expanded, and newly formated version of the book is available on Amazon.com for only $3.99 Everyone can now have the tools to preserve their family history - including YOU! Think about your family tree. Wouldn’t it be exciting if you could experience the personalities, hear the voices and enjoy the life stories of the people on

your family tree? Just imagine what you would do if someone handed you a video recording of your grandmother telling how her family lost everything during the Dust Bowl and what they did to survive and later prosper. Today you can take a few easy-to-follow steps to preserve the memories, insights, opinions, wisdom, faces and voices of those of your family members still living. How to Record Your Family History is designed to help you do just that. With this book you will learn how to capture with audio or video recordings the colorful personality of each living member of your family. Also, this book will help you document photographs and family heirlooms so your descendants will know the answer to the questions so oft heard when sorting through old photographs, “Who is that?”, “When was this photo taken,” and “That’s Grandma, but I wonder where the picture was taken?” Don’t delay! It’s likely in many cases you postponed too long these steps and have lost the faces and voices you wish you could see and hear again. You still have time to capture the stories of your aging relatives. And as long as YOU can hear and speak, YOUR stories too can be preserved for generations to come. Hesitate no longer. For more information about How to Record Your Family History please visit our comprehensive website: RecordYourFamilyHistory.com. Peruse the table of contents, find more information about the book, and find a link to Amazon.com where you can purchase the book and download it to your PC, tablet, SmartPhone or Kindle for only $3.99. Now you can trim YOUR family tree with the oral record and pictorial images that make the written genealogy come to life. Ron Ross, Author Loveland, CO

Q: My son has purchased older baseball cards for more than 30 years and has quite a collection. We need a reliable price guide so that we have a better idea of current values. Can you help us? -- Mark, Santa Fe, N.M. A: There are several excellent price guides available, but my personal pick is the "Standard Catalog of Vintage Baseball Cards" edited by Tom Bartsch, and published by Krause Books. This guide covers sets printed between 1863 and 1980 including even minorleague players. There are descriptions introducing the various sets, full, updated checklists and values for three condition grades. Best of all, it is easy to use, and the prices seem to reflect the current marketplace. It is $29.99 and well worth it. Q: While cleaning out my mom's storage area, I found a shoebox full of older valentines, mostly from the 1930s and '40s. Is there someone I can contact about them? -- Jane, Hope, N.J. A: Nancy Rosen is president of the National Valentine Collectors Association, P.O. Box 647, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417; nancyrosen@aol.com; and info@ valentinecollectors.com. There are several excellent price guides that also might be helpful: "One Hundred Years of Valentines" by Katherine Kreider, and "Valentines -- A Collector's Guide 1700-1950" by Barbara Johnson. Both are available at amazon.com. Q: I have a Lone Ranger comic book, Vol. 1, No. 139, issued in May 1961 by Dell. Is there any value to it? -- Ted, Casper, Wyo. A: According to the "Comic Book Checklist & Price Guide" by Maggie Thompson, Brent Frankenhoff and Peter Bickford (Krause Books), your comic book could be worth as much $45. I say "could" because condition is extremely important when determining the value of comics. If your comic shows any wear, it would be worth a fraction of that amount. Q: I have a piece of campaign sheet music, "A March to Eisenhower," a souvenir of the 1953 inauguration. Do you have any idea of how much it is worth? -- Laura, Pasco, Wash. A: I contacted several sheet-music collectors, who seem to agree that your "A March to Eisenhower" is worth in the $20-$30 range, depending, of course, on condition.

Antibiotic Treatment Helps Some With COPD

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: On the local news, they were talking to a doctor about using an antibiotic for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD. The name of the drug is azithromycin. What do you know about this, and what is your opinion? -- D.L. ANSWER: COPD encompasses two lung diseases, emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema is destruction of the millions of tiny air sacs in the lungs. Through those structures oxygen passes into the blood, and carbon dioxide passes out of it. Severe shortness of breath on slight physical activity is the hallmark of emphysema. Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the airways, the bronchi. Along with inflammation, the airways fill with thick mucus. A constant cough is the main sign of chronic bronchitis. Both conditions usually exist together. Azithromycin, the antibiotic you mentioned, has been suggested as a daily treatment at a reduced dose for those with COPD who have many flare-ups of their illness. A flare-up makes breathing exceedingly difficult and sometimes requires hospitalization to control. Flare-ups add to the destruction of normal lung tissue. Viruses are often the cause. However, the inflamed and mucus-filled airways also are hosts to many bacteria, whose numbers rise during a flare-up. They make a contribution to symptoms and lung destruction.

Just past hershberger’s Country store Studies have shown that a daily administration of a rather small dose of azithromycin, 250 milligrams, decreases flare-ups of COPD. Other studies suggest that a three-day-a-week dose of azithromycin is equally effective. If you have frequent episodes where your COPD worsens, then talk to your doctor about the advisability of you going on this program. The medicine can be taken for a full year and longer. It's an exciting breakthrough for those whose spells of COPD worsen. The booklet on COPD explains this common malady in detail. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue -- No. 601W, 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.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My daughter is 58 years old. For the past 10 years, she has heard her heart pulsating. It's a loud and disturbing noise that she hears from time to time. She has had an MRI and other heart-related tests. The results are normal. What is your opinion? -- E.G. ANSWER: Pulsatile tinnitus is ear noise, usually heard in one ear, that's synchronous with the heartbeat. The noise can arise in the carotid arteries in the neck, arteries in the vicinity of the ear, malformed vessels in the head and neck or disturbed blood flow through veins of the head and neck. Impacted earwax is another cause. Your daughter has had many tests that should have uncovered blood vessel problems. I'm at a loss to suggest a cause of her tinnitus. If her hearing is not as acute as it was, that might be the problem. Has she seen an ear, nose and throat doctor? If not, she should. An ENT doctor would pick up on that. She might be able to tolerate tinnitus at night if she turns a bedside radio to soothing music.
