• 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 in the advanced stage. 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 kept and quickly found.

• 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

A:

Don’t worry, my little gladiator, “Scandal” will be back with all-new episodes beginning Feb. 27. The show that’s been on in the meantime is an eight-part miniseries called “The Assets,” which is based on real-life events surrounding CIA counterintelligence officer Sandy Grimes (played by Jodie Whittaker). The miniseries is set in 1985 and takes a look inside the true, personal stories of the conclusion of the Cold War as told by the CIA. ***

Q:

When I went to see “Catching Fire” at the theater, they showed a preview for a movie called “Divergent,” and it looked pretty good. What can you tell me about it? -- Elizabeth F., via email

A: Like “The Hunger Games,” “Divergent”

also is based on a trilogy of young-adult books (these are authored by Veronica Roth). The other two books, “Insurgent” and “Allegiant,” round out the “Divergent” trilogy. The sci-fi adventure film, which comes to theaters March 21, is set in Chicago sometime in the near future, when people are divided into factions according to their personality. If you don’t fit into any one faction, you are known as Divergent, which is how our heroine, Beatrice Prior, is classified. She soon discovers a sinister plot brewing in her seemingly perfect society. The movie stars Shailene WoodZoë Kravitz ley, Theo James and Zoë Kravitz (and yes, she is the 25-year-old daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet). ***

Q:

It’s been only a few weeks, but I am going through some serious “Scandal” withdrawal! Please don’t tell me that it’s done for the year! I see that a new show has taken its place. -- Nicole D., via email

Q: I know that KISS has been nomi-

nated again for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Did they make it this year? It’s long overdue, in my opinion. -- Brad L., Pittsburgh

A: The makeup-wearing hard-rock quartet

did indeed make it into the Hall this go-round. Kiss, along with Nirvana, Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens will be the 29th class inducted into the Hall of Fame on April 10. The ceremony will air on HBO in May. And I think now is a good time for me to start a petition to get Def Leppard their HOF nomination. Having sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, spawning numerous hits -- as well as scores of copycats -- the boys from Sheffield sell out arenas to this day. ***

Q:

I was sad to hear that Joan Fontaine had passed away. Did she and her sister, Olivia de Havilland, ever make up? -- A Reader, via email

A:

The sisters had been feuding since 1941, when Joan won the Academy Award over sister Olivia (although sources say the animosity went all the way back to their childhood). They never did mend fences; however, Olivia issued a statement through her publicist that she was “shocked and saddened” by her sister’s death, and grateful for “the many kind expressions of sympathies.” Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Everyday CHEAPSKATE

®

by Mary Hunt

Who Else Could Use a Personal Assistant? Do you have any idea how much money you spend each month to feed your family? Even if you think you know, you may be shocked to ® learn the truth. Recently I heard from a reader in Ohio by keep Mary Hunt who decided to track of how much she spent on food for one entire month. She was all but speechless when she told me it came to more than $850. On food. Now, had she planned to spend that much as part of a carefully charted budget, that would be one thing. But this is the same person who’d told me previously that she thought that number was more like $450 “at the most.” It’s no secret that food costs are skyrocketing. Every week I am amazed, if not worried. While we can’t control the cost of food, we can control the ways that we spend our food dollars. There’s more at play than just the cost of food. There’s the time required to track sales, shop carefully and then prepare and cook our meals. I don’t know about you, but I need all the help I can get. I rely on multiple sources, but probably none as much as the online menu-planning service, eMeals. This is simply genius. Here’s how it works: Once you sign up, you pick your meal plan based on your family size, grocery store and your eating style. You can choose a plan from Paleo to Slow Cooker, Gluten Free to Classic Meals and many more. Actually, there are 14 different plans from which to choose, depending on your family’s dietary needs and preferences. Once each week your meal plan will arrive in your inbox, complete with seven simple, creative and family-friendly dinner recipes, including an entree and side dishes for each meal. Along with the meal plan, you’ll get a shopping list specifically created for your grocery store that coordinates with that store’s weekly sales. See what I mean? Genius! Years ago, I’d heard of eMeals, but that’s about all. I knew the name. It wasn’t until my niece Abby B. mentioned how eMeals had rescued her from a life of culinary angst and chaos that I took a more serious look. She’d come to think of eMeals as her personal assistant, taking all the hard work out of creating a grocery list and menu planning. It didn’t take me long to get on board with the eMeals program. There is no doubt that food has become a

major budget challenge for most American families. I don’t see relief coming any time soon. That means we have to do something drastic to stop wasting money by getting on board with menu planning, grocery shopping and cooking at home. Thousands of my readers now subscribe to eMeals, and that just makes me happy. Our friends over at eMeals have a great offer for EC readers. Head to www.everydaycheapskate.com/emeals15 to sign up and you’ll get a 20 percent discount when you use this CODE: DEBTPROOFLIVING. It’s nice to have friends!

3. The weekly “Brain Breaker”

By Matthew By Matthew Margolis Margolis

Holiday Hounds It’s no Xbox, but the idea has been around a lot longer and still makes the short list of the most popular Christmas gift ideas: The puppy. The great thing about the gift of a pup is that it works both ways. After all, there is no better gift for a dog than a loving home. The downside of Christmas pups is that the idea is not always fleshed out. Bringing a dog into the family means big change. And the big changes come instantly. They don’t wait until the chaos of the holidays dies down. They don’t wait until the weather warms. Created by Tom Underwood

If you find yourself the lucky recipient of a holiday hound, congratulations! You’re in the first days of what could be one of the most wonderful relationships of your life. As my Christmas gift to you and your dog, I’d like to share a few “secrets” that will get you off to a good start.

(Wuzzles answers on page 16)

I recently visited a family that just got a 9-week-old puppy. The two little girls are thrilled; their mother, not so much. The pup has gnawed through wires, chewed up furniture and urinated everywhere, and Mom wasn’t handling it well. She found the word “no” pushing its way through her lips constantly, to no avail.

(Mega Maze Solution on page 12)

The problem wasn’t with the dog. It was with the owners. There were a few key things they simply did not know. First, they didn’t know their puppy’s personality. This is important information as it is the very foundation of your relationship. Your dog’s personality determines how you handle him, how you talk to him, how you train him, how you correct him, as well as what not to do.

A few years ago, my daughter Riley and I wrote a book, which emphasized that in order to live longer and better, you need to embrace life to the fullest. Here are the 10 steps of more, not less, that you must consider to ensure a happy, healthy and very long life. MORE PASSION. Unless you are passionate about every task you undertake, success will elude you. You can retire from your job but not from life. Without a plan and tasks that give you passion, retirement will be dull, somnolent, sedentary and short. To succeed, retire with a plan. Those forced to retire or those with no outside interests will feel imprisoned in their homes and bored. MORE PEACE. Stress is the single most important factor leading to disease. Stress raises blood pressure, leads to poor eating habits, less exercise and a greater risk of heart attack, stroke and cancer.

SOCIAL SECURITY by Tom Margenau

Social Security Update for 2014 It has been my custom for most of the past 16 years to write a year-end column that summarizes the Social Security changes and updates scheduled to take place the following year. Almost all Social Security beneficiaries are familiar with the most popular and publicized upcoming change: The increase in monthly benefit checks for 2014 due to the automated cost-of-living adjustment. In fact, Social Security recipients have probably already received a notice from the Social Security Administration telling them of the expected increase. All Social Security checks are going up 1.5 percent in 2014. The COLA is based on something called the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers. This is the official measuring stick SSA has used to determine COLAs for the past 40 years. If you want to learn more about this measure, check out the website of the folks who maintain it: the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You’ll find them at www.bls.gov. I always dread mentioning COLAs in this column because every single time I do, I am flooded with emails from readers complaining that the increase is not enough. (Curiously, not once in 16 years has anyone ever written to me to say that their COLA increase was too high!) Yet here’s the rub: Many economists and social planners believe Social Security COLAs are too generous. (I’ve explained why in past columns, but don’t have the space to get into that argument today.) That’s why most discussions of long-range reforms for Social Security include proposals to reduce cost BEL AIR GREENS of living increases. 6ththe pg. average monthly Due to these increases, Nov. 21st, 2010 retirement check will be $1,294 in 2014, a $19 increase from the 2013 level.

There are millions of Social Security H beneficiaries who get much more than that, primarily because they work well past age 66. Another measuring stick called the national wage index is used to set increases to other provisions of the law that impact Social Security beneficiaries and taxpayers. Specifically, this includes increases in the amount of wages or self-employment

I don’t think it will be eliminated. But it will increase rather sharply. Most people need 40 Social Security work credits (sometimes called quarters of coverage) to be eligible for monthly benefit checks from the system. In 2013, people who were working earned one credit for each $1,160 in Social Security taxable income. But no one earns more than four credits per year. In other words, once you made $4,640, your Social Security record has been credited with the maximum four credits or quarters of coverage. Next year, the one credit limit goes up to $1,200, meaning you will have to earn $4,800 in 2014 before you get the maximum four credits assigned to your Social Security account. People under age 66 who get Social Security retirement or survivor’s benefits but who are still working are subject to limits in the amount of money they can earn and still receive all their Social Security checks. That limit was $15,120 this year and will be $15,480 in 2014.
