Pet Safety

Despite fur coats, animals need winter protection By Dr. Beth Leermakers Despite many seemingly obvious warnings to keep pets inside when temperatures drop below freezing, some people still endanger their cats and dogs by leaving them outside without adequate shelter. Here are a few precautions to keep your pets safe in colder weather: Know your pet’s limits. Pets’ tolerance to cold varies from pet to pet depending on their coat, body fat stores, health and activity level. My husky loves the cold weather and often chooses to spend time outside when it’s 20 degrees or even colder. He has a dog door so he can come inside whenever he wants to. My pit bull and short-haired foster dogs wisely race back inside after quickly taking care of business on chilly days. Even longhaired, thick-coated dogs, who tolerate the cold better than their short-haired brethren, are still at risk in cold weather. Pay attention to your pets’ cold

tolerance and adapt their routines accordingly. On very cold days you may need to shorten your dog’s walk and/or put a dry sweater or dog coat on him. Don’t let your dog off-leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm. Dogs often lose their scent in snow and ice and can easily become lost. Some pets are more vulnerable in cold weather. Short-legged pets may get cold faster because their bellies and bodies come into contact Photo courtesy of with the snow or wet, frosty ground. Puppies don’t tolerate the cold as “If it’s too cold for you, it’s probably too well as adult dogs.

outside during other seasons.” Longer-haired and thickcoated dog breeds — such as huskies — can better tolerate the cold, but no pet should be left outside for extended periods of time when it’s below freezing. Pay attention to signs of hypothermia. If your pet is whining, shivering, seems anxious, slows down or stops moving, seems weak or starts looking for warm places to burrow, bring her inside immediately. She is showing signs of hypothermia. Frostbite is harder to detect and may not show up until a few days after the damage is done. If you suspect hypothermia or frostbite, consult your vet immediately. Provide adequate shelter if your pets must stay outside. The American Veterinary Medical Association doesn’t recommend keeping pets outside for long periods of time in any weather. However, if your pets must stay outside, be sure to provide them with a solid, warm, draft-free shelter. The shelter should be large enough so your pet can move around comfortably but small enough to trap body heat. The floor of the shelter should be raised a few inches off the ground (to reduce heat loss to the ground) and covered with a thick layer of dry cedar shavings or straw. Change the bedding frequently so the shelter stays dry and warm. The door of the shelter should face away from the wind and be covered with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic. Do NOT use space heaters or heat lamps because of the risk of burns or fire. Because heated pet mats can cause burns, they should be used cautiously, if at all. Provide plenty of fresh, nonfrozen water by changing the water frequently or using a pet-safe heated water bowl. Yes, even in Dallas the water bowls can freeze solid. Avoid using metal bowls that can get stuck to tongues. Leave your pets home. Cold cars can be just as dangerous for your pets as hot cars, so don’t leave your pets alone in a car when it’s cold outside. In the winter, cars act like refrigerators that hold in the cold and cause animals to freeze to death. Pets that are thin, ill, young or old are particularly vulnerable to the cold, so you should never leave them in a cold car. Provide a warm place for your pets to sleep. Even indoors, your pets need a warm place to sleep that’s off the floor and away from drafts. A cozy pet bed and a warm blanket or pillow will keep your companion animals comfortable this winter. Bang on your hood before you start your car. Cats and small wildlife may crawl up under the hood seeking warmth from your car’s engine. When the motor is started they can be injured or killed in the fan belt. Bang loudly on your hood and give the animals a few seconds to escape before you start the engine. Remind your neighbors about the risks of cold weather to their pets. If you see animals without adequate shelter or that are otherwise being neglected or mistreated, call 311 to report the incident. Doing so may save an animal’s life. Hopefully we won’t have too many more cold spells this winter. If we do, please keep your pets warm and safe. Our Mission

Rodriguez deserves enshrinement By David Mullen The announcement of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum inductees is Wednesday, Jan 18, assuming any player will get voted in. We are in an era where the Baseball Writers Association of America — the judge and jury of who is selected into the Hall of Fame — have not chosen some of the best players in baseball history for inclusion because of the suspicion of performance enhancing drug (PED) use. But the exclusion of one player this year would be nothing short of sacrilegious. Former Texas Rangers catcher Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez is on the ballot for the very first time. One writer has already said he is not worthy. Former The New York Times baseball writer turned blogger Murray Chass felt none of the 34 eligible players were credible enough for enshrinement in the Hall of Fame class of 2017 and cast a blank ballot. That is not only crazy, it is irresponsible. Rodriguez was the best catcher of his time, and maybe the best catcher in baseball history. He was a 14 time All-Star, won 13 Gold Gloves and was the American League MVP in 1999. Anyone who remembers Rodriguez debut season in 1991 will recall the brash, young and likeable 19-year old with the big grin and even bigger arm. He dazzled defensively. No catcher in baseball’s playoff era — not even Johnny Bench — could throw to every base with such force and accuracy. When he first arrived, there were questions as to whether he could hit. He finished with a career .296, 311 home runs and 1,332 runs batted in. He won a World Series ring with the Florida Marlins. To question

show love, care in Dallas CITY HOUSE

Children and young adults, escaping neglect and abuse, are sheltered and saved from potential homelessness. Each week, Sally Blanton features a charity that is doing remarkable work in Dallas, a city known for philanthropy and generosity.

Q What is your mission or highest

purpose? The mission of City House is to provide emergency shelter, transitional residential living, programs and services including non-residential counseling and life skills services for at-risk children and young adults in North Texas who are in need, due to abuse, neglect or homelessness.

Q H ow are volunteers serving City House?

A More than half our direct staff is com-

prised of volunteers. They are the heartbeat of our organization. Total volunteers for 2015 were 2,400 with total volunteer hours of 59,000.

Rodriguez should smile all the way to the Hall of Fame. the validity of Rodriguez getting a plaque in Cooperstown goes back to those that whisper — or in the case of Chass yell — that Rodriguez was using PEDs. Manny Ramirez is on the ballot for the first time. One of the greatest hitters ever, he hit 555 home runs but he failed drug tests. If that is a criterion for exclusion to the Hall of Fame, so be it. But Rodriguez never failed a test, so don’t assume that he was using. But to baseball writers, a player is guilty until proven innocent. I am not defending the use of PEDs in baseball. They made players stronger and, as importantly, allowed players to bounce back more quickly from injury or fatigue. But there have always been factors that have changed the games throughout the decades. The baseball clubhouse used to be full of amphetamines — better known as “Greenies” for decades until they were banned in 2006. They kickstarted a player who may have been tired from a long road trip or day game after a night game. The mound was lowered in the 1960s to give a pitcher

an advantage over a hitter. The designated hitter was added in the American League in 1973 to give the hitter an advantage over the pitcher. Smaller parks were built, often providing a hitter a benefit by providing less foul territory or moved in fences. If Rodriguez does not get in on the first ballot, he certainly would not be alone. Fellow catcher Mike Piazza, the alltime home run hitting catcher with 427, wasn’t voted in until the fourth ballot. Houston Astros ironman Jeff Bagwell is on the ballot for the seventh time even though he was one of the most feared hitters in the National League and collected a Rookie-of-theYear award and an MVP. And leadoff man/base stealer Tim Raines, whose stats were hurt by a player lockout, had to perform in the shadow of first ballot Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson. Hopefully the remaining writers voting for the Hall of Fame will do the right thing and elect Rodriguez. He was a player at the top of his position, and that is a point that is without argument.

Q H ow many people are served each year?

A In 2015, City House provided shelter

to 170 clients, and managed more than 2,000 crisis calls from parents and at-risk youth.

QW  hat do you think is the most important thing you do for the community? In Collin County, City House operates the only children’s shelter and transitional living program for unaccompanied children and older youth. We are also the only shelter that takes large sibling groups in an effort to keep them together and hopefully bring about family reunification.


Q What are your critical needs now, besides Q W  hat are some dangers to these young

money donations? We are in need of six computers, two printers, learning software and reference books for our youth resource and outreach center.


QW  hat is your facility like?

A We have several residential facilities, and a youth resource and outreach center. Our emergency shelter, known as My Friend’s House, is for newborns to 17 years.

people on the streets? In suburbia today, when there is no longer a couch to sleep on, the kids take to the streets and become susceptible to risky behavior, including prostitution, sex trafficking (as early as ages 13 or 14), drugs and crime that will eventually escalate, often ending in incarceration. Youth homelessness is on the rise.

Berg, Wahlberg make ‘Patriots Day’ potential big hit By Chic DiCiccio There are two directions that a movie like “Patriots Day” could go. The Boston Marathon terror attack happened not even four full years ago and it could be seen as exploitation in the manner of Oliver Stone’s misfire “World Trade Center.” Or, like the well-thought out “United 93,” it can choose to be a powerful reminder that even though there are people who seek nothing but causing pain and suffering, they can be beaten by the sheer will of the human spirit. Not only does director Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” avoid exploitation, it showcases and encapsulates how goodwilled Americans of all shapes, sizes and colors overcame one of the worst events to occur in United States history. The attack itself is almost a backdrop, and “Patriots Day” makes the real story about the heroic men and women that proved Americans can and will join together to defeat evil. Mark Wahlberg portrays Boston Police Department Sergeant Tommy Saunders, a composite character who, in the most farfetched plot development, manages to be involved with every important event of the “Patriots Day” 133-minute runtime. An alluded to suspension for Saunders forces him to play traffic cop for a day during the Marathon and he’s stationed at the finish line. The bombing scene is graphic, but it doesn’t revel in blood. It’s near impossible to

treat an actual event in which people died with this much respect while also displaying the brutality of it, yet Berg pulls it off. There are several shots of bloodied humans, but each moment is treated just as someone seeing these brutal things occur would see them: a brief look followed by a turn away in horror. Locations and times are displayed in text on the screen throughout the film and it shows the speed in which Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), FBI agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon) and Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick (Michael Beach) reacted to the attack. The precision and timeliness in which an investigation and manhunt began amid death and destruction is awe-inspiring and furthers how the worst things can bring out the best in people. Of course, the manhunt was centered on Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Themo Melikidze and Alex Wolff). These two are shown going about their day with calmness and ease with Tamerlan’s Muslim convert wife, Katherine Russell (Melissa Benoist), ably standing by and caring for their child. In fact, these two are so relaxed after carrying out their act of terror, that Tamerlan sends Dzhokhar out for milk, which is captured and shown via real security camera footage. The most inspired choice that Berg makes is editing in the aforementioned security footage of the Tsarnaev’s during

Mark Wahlberg stars in "Patriots Day." and after the attack. It is eerily haunting and creates realism, but it also allows the movie to show the real heroism of Dun Meng (Jimmy O. Yang), a carjacking victim of the brothers whose bravery leads to authorities pinpointing their location. There is a boatload of tragedy, mostly centered around MIT police officer Sean Collier (Jake Picking) and newlyweds Patrick Downes and Jessica Kensky (Christopher O’Shea and Rachel Broshanan). Their stories are tragic and leaving them from the story would have been a disservice to all involved. In perhaps the best scene of “Patriots Day,” a mysterious, never named interrogator (Khandi Alexander) shows up to “talk” with Katherine Russell. This intense moment serves as an indictment of radical Muslims as Russell stonewalls and contradicts her own faith, while the interrogator proves how pathetic her husband truly was. If there is a

partisan, finger pointing moment in the movie, this is it. “Patriots Day” builds up to a massive, incredibly staged firefight in Watertown, which features Police Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons). Not only does Simmons put in the finest performance of the entire movie, his fearless moment of true life bravery is pulse pounding to watch. Pugliese’s action is a metaphor for how the entire Boston area handled the attack and could elicit cheers from audience members. Peter Berg, along with “Lone Survivor” and “Deepwater Horizon,” has pulled off a real-life trifecta of sorts. “Patriots Day” is a movie in which Wahlberg’s character mentions people coming together when things are at their worst several times and it could inspire many to do just that. This could be a sleeper box office hit and the coda featuring interviews with real life survivors of the attack is as uplifting as a movie can get.

Health & wealth in one – how to make money while working out The end of the year is a perennial period of self-reflection, and I enjoy partaking in setting a few New Year’s resolutions. Unfortunately, I’ve (more than once) enthusiastically started a year with shiny optimism only to find myself falling short a few weeks later. I know I’m not alone, and I’m encouraged by people who challenge themselves time and time again. Resolutions related to finances and health, two important components of everyone’s life, are especially common. Here are a few ways that you could tie physical activities to achieving your financial goals. Hopefully being able to tackle both resolutions at once can help keep you motivated for the entire year. Compete with yourself, or others. If you’re up for a little friendly competition, consider creating or joining a challenge and putting money on the line. There’s an online app that you can use to place a wager

on how often you’ll work out. At the end of the week, you have to pay your preselected amount for each workout you miss. But if you complete your workouts for the week, you collect a portion of the amount paid out by everyone else. Some people make an arrangement with a friend where you each agree to work out X times a week and to pay the other person $5 or $10 for each workout missed. Or, you could opt to make a donation to a charity of your friend’s choice rather than pay each other. The goal is to provide accountability, and the financial aspect can add a sense of urgency and be a great motivational tool. Connect an activity tracker to rewards programs. Several services give you points each time you work out and let you redeem the points for cash, gift cards or other prizes. The real trick is to use multiple programs and maximize your rewards from every workout. Some employers also provide bonus points

to employees that use these programs or have similar rewards programs of their own. Make working out your work. If you’re looking to make a serious lifestyle change, and potentially some serious money, consider becoming a personal trainer or fitness instructor. While the certification process can be expensive and time-consuming, afterward you’ll be able to charge clients for classes or one-on-one training. Or, you could try to find flexible and active work that suits your interests and experience. Gardener, referee or dog walker could be good fits to supplement your income. Keep exercise-related expenses down. It can be tempting to buy new workout equipment or sign up for a gym when you’re excited about a New Year’s resolution. However, there are many ways to get fit without expensive equipment or a large gym. For example, you can find videos of free instructor-led workouts or yoga

Your Stars this Week by Stella Wilder

The coming week will present many situations that pull individuals of all types in at least two very different directions at once. It may seem to some as if a war of sorts is being waged within — desires will conflict with needs, and the heart and head will wage battle for dominance in situations that are volatile, emotional and of great importance in both the personal and professional spheres. Tough decisions will wait to be made as the week comes to a close, and how one thinks through all of his or her options will make the difference between a satisfactory outcome or one that wreaks emotional havoc — though no option is likely to be completely painless. Indeed, many will be choosing the lesser of two very clear evils, so it may help to remember that support is available. Where love is concerned, those who are willing to be firm and uncompromising stand the best chance of seeing things work out to their liking. Indeed, whoever unpacks his or her heart with the right words at the right time — and to the right person — can quite possibly have his or her heart's desire as the week comes to a close. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) You needn't overthink a key issue. The moment you decide on your course of action, get moving — and don't be made to wait. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) – You

can demonstrate unusual creativity when it comes to routine endeavors, especially in and around the home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) Someone who figured prominently in key affairs early last year is likely to resurface and demand that you take action. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) – Someone is knocking at the door — figuratively, at least. You'll want to see who's there, and what he or she wants, before opening it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) What you admit to a loved one early in the week may be discovered by another party who desires to do you harm with the knowledge. Use caution! (March 6-March 20) – You'll be sought out for your expertise in a certain area, but events toward week's end may still baffle you and others. ARIES (March 21-April 4) Your attempts to rekindle a longdistance relationship will teach you something about what's possible — and what you really want. (April 5-April 19) – You're relying on the care of someone who is ultimately ill-equipped to care for anyone. It's time to look elsewhere for guidance. TAURUS (April 20-May 5) A friend will get in touch and make a request that may catch

you by surprise. Even so, it's not something you're unwilling to do. (May 6-May 20) – You and a friend are onto something, but now may not be the time to reveal your plans. Be patient, and wait for a clear sign. GEMINI (May 21-June 6) You and a partner have some details to sort out before you can set a new plan in motion. Something yet unsaid matters a great deal. (June 7-June 20) – You are missing someone who, in the past, seemed to make things difficult for you. Now, he or she seems essential to your well-being. CANCER (June 21-July 7) Your search for that "perfect something" is drawing to a close, and you're nearer to your heart's desire than you've ever been. (July 8-July 22) – The time has come for you to commit to an idea you've been toying with for some time. A loved one gives you his or her full backing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) You are more than qualified for a certain job or responsibility, but the powers that be are likely to look elsewhere. You must find out why! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) – You've been receiving a great deal of attention of late, but none of it for the reason you think. You'll get some unexpected news.

sequences online or try an app that creates and leads you through workouts. If you want to take up an activity that requires facilities, look for inexpensive options at local community centers. Raise money for a charity with every step. You may not have a strong desire to earn money but are still looking for a little extra motivation to work out. Similar to the programs that reward you with points, there are apps like Charity Miles that you can use to raise money for your favorite charities while exercising. You could also sign up for a charity walk, run or ride and know that when you cross the finish line you’ll be helping a good cause. Bottom line: By keeping costs down and looking for ways to make money while staying active you can make your budget (and body) more flexible. This approach could help you stay motivated for longer, and you can use the extra money to pursue your other goals for the year. Copyright 2016 United Feature Syndicate, Inc. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) A long period of uncertainty is drawing to a close. A loved one gives you permission to close out the week in a way that suits you to a T!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) It's not unusual to find yourself navigating unfamiliar terrain, but this week that unfamiliarity may do something unusual to you. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) – The questions you ask will lead to discoveries that you've long anticipated, but certain details leave much to be desired. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) You may have to settle for an arrangement that is neither to your liking nor completely undesirable. You'll have to adjust. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) – You and a friend may finally come to an agreement about something that has long been a bone of contention between you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) Now that all is said and done, you'll be able to look back and determine just what you could have done better — and when. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) – You can do a great deal to avoid an unpleasant outcome, but take care not to rewrite the past in some intangible way!

Photo by Kevin Marple That’s what Sunday Supper at Stampede The Honey Fried Chicken at Stampede. 66 is all about. The menu is a Texas sampler in a setting that is an homage to the state. Native Texan chef Stephan Pyles offers a recorded by Bob Wills, George Strait and full immersion experience with live cowboy Asleep at the Wheel. ‘The Stampede’ is still music, an interior that swaggers with longgoing strong today and is currently run by horns and Stetsons while a Texas drawl pracJody Nix, Hoyle’s son, who is a country westtically whispers in your ear. ern star in his own right.

Candy cont'd from page 2 wasted space and the floor plan lends itself to any demographic. It’s great for raising small children or for college kids returning home for the holidays.” The house is reminiscent of what you’d see in Santa Barbara or Palm Beach, capturing that indoor/outdoor California lifestyle. Despite our odd freeze and a couple of intensely hot summer months, this is a style well-suited for Dallas, as we do love to let the party flow from inside to out. This house is built for entertaining, with the main living areas wrapping around the gorgeous pool and patio. The living room has an impressive timbered ceiling, and twin carved limestone fireplaces anchor each end of the room. You can step out onto both front and rear loggias from this room through massive glass doors that allow light to flood the home. “There is so much light that when I show the house I never need to turn on the lights,” Carroll said. Everything you’d expect of a gourmet kitchen is at your fingertips, from the built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and six-burner Wolf range, two dual sinks and double turbo ovens. It’s all here, and of course, opens into the family room with yet another fireplace and a spectacular view of the

backyard. A separate ground-floor wing houses the master suite with his-and-hers bathrooms (check out the shower view) and there is another fireplace and another magnificent timbered ceiling. You can take the stairs or zip up to the third floor via the elevator to another living area and five more bedroom suites or down to the lower level; remember, this is where the wine is, very important in our book. There’s also a full-sized bar and a dramatic home theatre bathed

in red and gold. No worries, you can work off the wine and popcorn in the home’s gym. As if the interior is not enough, remember, the house sits on over an acre of land and Harold Leidner is responsible for the fabulous landscaping. It’s truly resort-like with expansive patios, an infinity pool, water fountains, a spa and an outdoor kitchen. Even the trees over the creek have had lighting added. “You still have that intimate feeling of home despite the fact that it’s a massive estate, Carroll said.

home’s first impression should be elegant and well done, especially if it’s a space where shoes and backpacks land. Do your best to keep it classy as the first room you see every day. On the other hand, if the mudroom is located near a back entrance or where it’s not seen, you could make it more industrial and rugged. I’ve found that a rustic, wooden look is popular for hidden mudrooms. The wood is more durable and looks better the more time passes and the more damage it takes. Mudroom essentials include shallow bench seating, cubbies (and more cubbies), hooks at all levels along the walls and hard flooring — no carpet. You want surfaces, paint and other design factors that will be suitable for easy cleanup. If you have small children, it’s smart to put hooks for them at their height, and notice I said hooks — not necessarily hangers in closets. Kids are more likely to hang something up on a hook than open a closet door to hang up their coat on a hanger. Even then, the closet would be messy, and coats would be falling off broken, tangled hangers. The most important thing is to consider every family member’s needs. Be sure that each person has their own space within the room, to keep things organized and separate. Don’t be shy: apply your family’s personality to the room as well as making it the utmost functional it can be.
