• Beginning in 1942, Frees found that his talents were in demand in the world of radio. He played a wide variety of parts in audio dramas, often playing the role of several characters due to his unique ability to change his voice in a full range from bass to falsetto. He has also performed as a one-man show. In one radio series, he played not only every part in the drama, but also served as the voice-over narrator.

• Probably his most famous role, and the one for which he is still remembered, was as the iconic voice of Poppin’ Fresh, the Pillsbury Doughboy. More than 50 actors auditioned to do the voice for this cute little character, including Paul Winchell, who did the voice for Tigger from “Winnie the Pooh.” But Paul Frees won the role, and his high-pitched and chatchy giggle is now famous. The commercial first aired in 1965, and since then the Poppin’ Fresh Doughboy has appeared in over 600 of their national ads.

• He was involved for more than four decades in making over 250 films, innumerable cartoons, and numerous TV appearances.

The presiding judge, however, was his car at the same time and happened to be listening in to the broadcast. The judge didn’t find it a bit funny, and she quickly faced felony charges of first-degree perjury. • In Cochocton, Ohio, a judge gave two young offenders an option in punishment for throwing beer on ladies: 30 days in jail or an afternoon walking through busy downtown sidewalks scantily dressed as women in suggestive attire. They reluctantly chose the latter.

• Shane Stant went before an Oregon judge to have his record expunged after a felony conviction for his part in the 1994 Olympic skating scandal that sidelined Nancy Kerrigan and put Tonya Harding in jail. He complained that the felony record was keeping him out of the Navy Seals.

* It was 20th-century British actor George Sewell who made the following sage observation: “Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt.”

Everyday CHEAPSKATE

* When someone mentions the band ZZ Top, you probably think of a group of musicians with long beards. They don’t all have beards, though; the drummer is clean-shaven as a matter of safety (imagine being in the middle of a drum solo and getting a stick caught in a long beard -- ouch!). Interestingly, the unbearded drummer’s name is Frank Beard.

* Unless you were around on April 17, 1964, you may not be aware of the hullabaloo caused by the introduction of the Ford Mustang. In Seattle, a truck driver was so distracted by a display of new Mustangs that he crashed his cement truck through the window of the dealership. In Chicago, so many people were trying to crowd into the cars in a showroom that the dealer had to lock all the vehicle doors. A dealer in New Jersey had only one Mustang, so he auctioned it off. The winner of the auction insisted on sleeping in his new car that night, just to make sure nobody else got it before his check cleared.

Since then, two trainers have labeled him a hopeless case. I am very patient with him. I take him for 30-minute walks or runs every day. He is great off-leash and knows all the basic commands -- stay, OK, sit, down, here, leave it, back up, your bed, off. He also plays well with other dogs and adores humans. “The problem started with food aggression. He began growling if we walked by him or looked at him while he was eating. I have broken him of this habit. Scooter now will wait for my command to eat and will back up if I ask him to, although he still gets tense. “At this point, his mood swings are the biggest problem. My boyfriend and I know the signs -- ears back, refusal to make eye contact, head down -- and leave him alone. If he growls at us, we grab the fur on the back of his neck and hold him until he lies down with one of us directly on top of him. He shakes and growls for about 10 minutes and then submits into a good mood again. He has responded well to our training. “The one thing we cannot break him of is how he is around other people. He has bitten my mom, my boyfriend’s mom, two friends and my boyfriend. All of these attacks were in times of stress: Twice he was turned over on his back and someone reached down to pet him; once was when he was barking at another dog and someone touched his rear; once was when my friends

SENIOR NEWS LINE by Matilda Charles © King Features Synd., Inc.

Don’t be Seduced by Romance Scams Romance can be lovely ... except when it isn’t. Disaster can be part of the package if the new “perfect match” is a scammer. There are far too many ways for thieves to con seniors. Online Dating Sites -- You can’t really know who’s on the other end of the ads you view, but there are some warning signs that a potential date might not be honest. He or she might profess love all too quickly, or send photos that don’t look real. You might be encouraged to delete your online profile and instead exchange direct email. Maybe you’ll be told you can’t meet yet because the other person is out of the country, and there are excuses about why you can’t talk on the phone. But here is what it all builds up to. Eventually there will be an “emergency” that arises with the other person and you’ll be asked to help them out of some terrible crisis by sending money. And soon, more money. Drug Mules -- Many seniors have been conned into sneaking drugs into other countries. A new love will ask a senior to travel overseas, even making the arrangements. Unfortunately, those arrangements include taking along an

Financial Assets -- Co-mingling of assets or accounts is another red flag. Don’t do it, especially if you intend to leave money to your heirs. The more assets you have, the more you’re atrisk of having your money stolen. Be very careful about how much financial information you reveal about yourself, even if you feel you can probably trust the person.

The obvious fact: Scooter is an aggressive dog who requires professional training. His unpredictable nature makes him a danger to others. Where the facts don’t add up: Scooter doesn’t adore humans, at least not consistently. He is mistrustful of their intentions; he is fearful; he is overly territorial. Indeed, he will bite the hand that feeds him. Setting up a senior to be scammed Further, Scooter has not responded well doesn’t happen overnight. Often the scheme can to their training.

Don’t Be a Victim of Pension Poaching

There is a law currently making its way through Congress called the Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act. Its purpose is to add another tool to the arsenal to prevent frauds against veterans. Those convicted could be fined, imprisoned for five years, or both. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) is behind this bill, focusing on what they call pension poaching, specifically, criminals who purport to help veterans get their benefits faster and who charge a fee for services. They prowl Department of Veterans Affairs • Business Card, BW, 6x Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer indiclinics, assisted-living centers, hospitals and senior • Dec. everythem other week ANSWER: People with long memories vidual letters, but30, will2018: incorporate in the column whenhousing, claiming they know all the ropes and can ever possible.

Does Medicare Cover Vision Services? DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: I will be enrolling in Medicare in a few months, and would like to know how Medicare covers vision services? I currently have vision insurance through my employer but will lose it when I retire. -- Looking Ahead Dear Looking: Many people approaching 65 are unclear on what Medicare does and doesn’t cover when it comes to vision services. The good news is that original Medicare covers most medical issues like cataract surgery, treatment of eye diseases and medical emergencies. But unfortunately, routine care like eye exams and eyeglasses are the beneficiary’s responsibility. Here’s a breakdown of what's covered, and what's not:

Page 13

Week of March 10, 2019

discount retailers like Costco or Sam's Club Optical, which is recommended by Consumer Reports as the best discount stores for good eyewear and low prices – it requires a $60 annual membership fee for both Vision Center and storewide shopping purchases. Walmart Vision Centers also offer fair prices with no membership.

Eye surgeries: Medicare will cover most eye surgeries that help repair the eye function, including cataract surgery to remove cataracts and insert standard intraocular lenses to replace your own. Medicare will not, however, pick up the extra cost if you choose a specialized lens that restores full range of vision, thereby reducing your need for glasses after cataract surgery. The extra cost for a specialized lens can run up to $2,500 per eye.

Or consider buying your glasses online. Online retailers like WarbyParker.com, ZenniOptical.com, and EyeBuyDirect.com all get top marks from the Better Business Bureau and offer huge savings. To purchase glasses online you’ll need a prescription.

Eye surgeries that are usually not covered by Medicare include refractive (LASIK) surgery and cosmetic eye surgery that are not considered medically necessary.

Capodimonte Teapot Is Stylish Q:

I have enclosed a photo of a porcelain teapot that was given to me. It stands about 7 inches tall and is decorated with a classical scene of people in relief. There is a building and trees in the background. The spout appears to be a duck, and the lid is pink, topped with a yellow flower with a green leaf. It is in excellent condition. Marked on the bottom in gold is a five-point crown above the letter “N” and the words “Capodimonte -- Italy.” Anything you can tell me about my teapot will be greatly appreciated.

Capodimonte mark has been widely copied.

A:

You have a Capodimonte-style porcelain teapot. The original mark of a crown over the letter “N” represents the city, Naples, Italy, and was first used in the late 1700s. It has been copied and used by a plethora of factories from the late 1800s to the present. Your Capodimonte-style teapot was made in the early 1900s and would probably be worth $125 to $225. *** This mark is on a set of porcelain dishes that my husband and I inherited from his maternal great-grandmother. It is a service for 12 and includes all the ser ving pieces. Each dish is decorated with a band of petite pastel flowers, and the background is white. If our math is correct, the set was made around the turn of the last centur y. Should we insure the set or simply enjoy and pass it down through the generations?
