Page12 POST-GAZE'I-rE, APRIL 10, 2015 Ray 15arron's 11 O'CLOCK NEW5 The naked truth/ Police in Charlotte, North Carolina, declined repeated requests to arrest a local man who routinely stands naked at his front door. "Unless he's outside of his home," said a department spokesman, "he cannot be charged." British pride: After researchers found that four out of five Britons do not steep their tea long enough for its proper flavor to emerge. "The British think they know about tea," said a scientist, "but most people have no idea what they are doing." Time, for a spot of tea. Missing deadline: After a Democratic can- didate for lieutenant governor in Kentucky was arrested for having a library book that was 11 years past due. "I'm not saying it's not serious," said Johnathan Masters, "but I'm not a bad guy." Wow! Battered by security failures and scandal, Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy is asking Congress for $8 million to build a detailed replica of the White House to train agents. "Right now we train on a parking lot," Clancy told lawmakers. "We don't have the bushes, we don't have the foundations, and we don't get a realistic look at the White House." Unbelievable. An Illinois man has credited a super spicy hot sauce with saving his life. Randy Schmitz. 30, was on vacation in South Carolina when he sampled a fiery concoc- tion called Flashbang. After tasting a tiny dab of the sauce, Schmitz immediately be- gan feeling ill and started convulsing. He was rushed to a hospital, where an MRI revealed an early-stage malignant tumor that was removed through surgery a few days later. "It didn't try the sauce," said Schmitz, "that cancer tumor would've grown in my head." Speaking of cemeteries, Actors Ethel Barrymore, John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, are buried in the Calvary Cem- etery, Los Angeles, California. Actors Wallace Beery and Errol Flynn are at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California. Also resting there is actor Warner Baxter and Clara Bow. Jeff Chandler is at Hillside Memorial Park in Los Angeles. One more time! Jimmy Durante is at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Los Angeles. Jimmy once stated, "Maybe we ain't bom equal, but it's a cinch we all die equal." How touching, when eight-year-old Tristan Regini set up a hot chocolate stand in front of his Denver home last month, he was hop- ing to raise money for a'new toy. But in- spired by the lifesaving cancer treatment his friend Cade Humphreys received at the Children's Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Tristan instead decided to give back. He has now raised more than $3,000 in hot choco- late sales, donations and pledges. "If there were no Children's Hospital, there would be no Cade," Tristan said. "I thought that was so amazing," said Cade, who was declared cancer free last April. "He's one of my best friends." Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! A radio station in Albany. New York announced that it would play Christmas music all year long. "This might strike some as being a risky move," said .a spokesman for "Santa 105.7-FMZ But there's literally a clamoring for Christmas music. The astute, Barbara D'Amico reminds us that Christmas is a race to see which gives out first -- your money or your feet. The witty Christina Quinlan says what most of us want for Christmas is the day after. News from Italyl Italian police have cited two California women for carving eight-inch J and N initials into a brick wall at the Colosseum. The women, who were not named in the Italian press, but said to be 21 and 25, took a selfie with their graffiti and were promptly reported to security guards by other tourists. It's unclear whether they will be fmed, although the last tourist caught defacing Roman ruins, a Russian nabbed last November, was given a four-month sus- pended prison sentence and ordered to pay $21,000. We "didn't imagine it was something so serious," said one of the women. Centuries of tourism have left the ancient Roman arena covered with graffiti, which may lead some to believe it is OK to add more. Ugh. An I 0 0 0 American man has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates for insulting his employer on Facebook. Ryan Pate, a helicopter mechanic for Abu Dhabi-based Global Aerospace Logistics, had flown to Florida to get a back injury treated. While there, he complained on Facebook that his employers had refused to extend his leave and he mentioned "filthy" Arabs. When he returned to the United Arab Emirates after his treatment, he was arrested for slander and his passport was confiscated. He faces up to five years in prison and a $50,000 fine. Huh? For decades, health officials have warned Americans about the dangers of eat- ing foods high in cholesterol, like eggs, shrimp and lobster. But in a stunning reversal, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advi- sory Committee recently recommended no longer listing cholesterol as a "nutrient of concern," That turnaround is in keeping with mounting evidence that for most healthy adults, eating foods high in choles- terol does not significantly contribute to the amount of cholesterol found in the blood -- most of which is produced naturally by the body. Doctors warn that individuals with health problems such as diabetes or heart disease should continue to avoid high-cho- lesterol foods, but such foods' overall impact on good health may be less significant than was previously thought. "It's turned out to be more complicated than anyone could have known," says Wake Forest University biochemist Lawrence Rudel. "Eating too much a day won't harm everyone, but it will harm some people." Americans today consume nearly the same number of calories -- about 3,400 a day -- as Americans in 1910 did, but the weight of the average American has in- creased substantially due to lack of exercise. Some interesting facts. The Massachusetts School of Law of 1647 required that towns with 50 or more families establish schools or pay a fine. Several schools were opened as a result of this law. Although the schools were not the first supported by the public, the law forcing their creation was an impor- tant milestone in public education. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray file independently for the invention of the telephone. Perhaps, the surer explana- tion is that neither man invented the tele- phone, which was instead the product of Ital- ian genius Antonio Meucci. In 1891, Meucci loses his rights to the invention of the tele- phone in a Supreme Court decision. In 1897, Guglielmo Marconi, the "Father of Radio," received a patent for "The Wireless," and in 1'917, "Fireman Jim Flynn" becomes the first and only man to knock out heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey. Flynn's real name is Andrea Chiariglione, Yes, an Italian. Show biz and music stuff from our great musicologist Albert Natale. From the mouth of Totie Fields, "In the olden days, Jewish actresses like Kay Francis and Sylvia Sidney had to suffer in silence. But there's a lot more money to be made suffering in mink, like Joan Crawford, or suffering out loud like Barbra Streisand. Joan played Hollywood's biggest martyrs, arid she isn't even Jewish!" Patsy Kelly claims the most beautiful female star in filmdom is Lassie. She transcends kall boundaries; she's a totally sincere actress and at once a bitch, and man's best friendw ith gorgeous hair. According to Rock Hudson: "Why is it the wildest personal rumors accrue to the most innocuous actresses? There are the rumors that June Allyson is a nymphomaniac and that Julie Andrews is tougher than a five-star general." On this day, April 10: In 1946 Japanese women voted for the first time. In 1945 Allied troops liberated the Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald. And in 1932, Joel Grey, actor and singer was born.

Cook pasta of choice according to directions on the pack- age. After draining cooked pasta, place it in a larger serv- ing bowl. Add beans to the pasta and stir before serving in individual bowls. Serves two. NOTE: One of my favorite pasta with the beans is the small shell. However these healthy, hearty beans are delicious as well with Ditalini or elbows. I remember Mama sometimes cutting up spaghetti into one-or-two-inch portions and cooking that for serving with the beans. This is a meal frequently called "pasta e fasulIL" It seems every Italian dialect has its own pronunciation for this whole- some and frequently prepared meal during the depression years.
