FALL CONTENT

HEALTH WATCH: Stepping up your foot care - Weekly health rail, with items on caring for your feet, the media's effect on disease outbreaks, eating at restaurants and more.

CAROL SPONAGLE: Obama, Oprah, AAA all say, 'Pay attention while driving' -- Everyone from the president on down is trying to get people to pay more attention to the road while driving, and less attention to phones, other passengers and the family pet.

PETER COSTA: On touchdowns and pork chops -- Halftimes are long enough to stage a Roman bacchanalia. You can roast a pig and drink a cask of port and the analysts will still be talking about that failed third-down conversion in the red zone.

CANDACE KREBS: 'Field-to-fork experience' shines light on wheat in D.C. -- “It’s not every day you get to stand in a wheat field in the middle of The (National) Mall in Washington, D.C.,” the Brandon, Colo., farmer said by cell phone as he arrived in Washington.

SHOESTRING LIVING: Taming the spending on your pets - We’re big proponents of being a two-dog family. We feel it contributes to good quality of life for us and our canine pals. But increasing our numbers will undoubtedly have an impact on our pet-related expenses, which prompted me to do a little research on just how and where animal lovers can save. By Molly Logan Anderson.

JEFF VRABEL: You're probably covered in bedbugs right now - Well, that settles it - I have bedbugs. Bedbugs in the bed, bedbugs in the pillows, bedbugs on the couch, bedbugs in the car, bedbugs in the other car, bedbugs in the amphibious assault vehicle, bedbugs in the panic room, bedbugs in the haunted nursery, bedbugs in the room that the clowns dress in. In short, the entire place is thoroughly infested with bedbugs.

JIM HILLIBISH: No longing for the days when rats were meals - You’ll love your mother’s cooking after you've had the Army's.


Entertainment

POP CULTURE: In this issue -?magazine becomes network - Do you ever feel guilty when you like a movie that’s adapted from a book, but you’ve never read the book? I got a similar feeling the other day when I was watching National?Geographic channel. I don’t think I’ve ever read an entire article from the magazine, but I watch the channel frequently. By Dennis Volkert.

GREG ZYLA: The 1981 to 1983 Chrysler Imperial – Cars We Remember: Although long since removed from its marketing efforts, Chrysler’s high-class Imperials were once competitors for American luxury-car dominance, competing with Cadillac and Lincoln for consumer approval.

ON COMPUTERS: You’re Net surfing and hit a brick wall — now what? - Everybody eventually suffers an Internet slow down. Jim Hillibish tells us what we can do to fix it.
