Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, JULY 20, 2012 ./ Ray Barron's 11 O'CLOCK NEW5 Are you ready for this? Georgia police officer William Martinez, 31, had a fatal heart attack in 2009 while he and a male friend were hav- ing sex with a woman in a motel room. A jury has now awarded his widow $3 million because doctors should have warned Martinez, who had a heart condition, to avoid strenuous activity. "This man could have died running on a treadmill," said her lawyer. Batter up! A New Jersey woman hit by a baseball at a Little League game is suing the 11-year-old player who threw it. Spectator Elizabeth Lloyd wants catcher Matthew Migliaccio to pay her $150,000, alleging that his errant warm-up throw was "reckless." "The whole thing has almost been surreal," said the boy's father. "We keep thinking it's just going to go away." Wow! The post office in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, cut back its hours from three hours a day to just 30 min- utes. It's now open from 10:15 to 1'0:45 am. Big shots! Clark and Sharon Winslow of Belvedere, CA, spent $4.2 million to buy the house next door and demol- ished it. The home was partially obstructing their existing; $19 million home's view of San Francisco Bay. Big deal! The latest World Wealth Report found that the world's millionaires' com- bined wealth fell by 1.7 per- cent in 2011, the first decrease for high-net-worth individuals since the 2008 global economic crisis. A Swedish woman spent eight hours of a plane flight sitting next to a dead body. Lena Pettersson says the Kenya Airways flight from Amsterdam to Tanzania took off even though the passen- ger next to her was having convulsions; he died two hours into the flight. "Of course it was unpleasant," said Pettersson of having to sit next to the corpse, "but I am not a person who makes a fuss." Upon landing, Petters- son did file a complaint with Kenya Airways, which refunded her $713 about half the cost of her ticket. Holy Madonna! Madonna is worried that someone might steal her DNA, says The Daily Mirror (U.K.). Alvaro Ramos, the concert promoter over- seeing the Portuguese leg of her current tour, says Madonna, 53, has set up an unprecedented "sterilization team" whose job it is to remove all traces of her hair, skin and saliva from her dressing room after each show. "We can only enter after her sterilization team has left the room," said Ramos. "There will not be any of Madonna's DNA. I do understand it, but it is taken to extremes." Europe's newest tallest sky- scraper built at a cost of 82.35 billion was created by Renzo Piano, the acclaimed Italian architect. As the world's 59 m tallest building there is plenty to boast about. It features 44 elevators, 306 flights of stairs and 72 occupible floors. Wish to thank the notable Arthur Ray of Lynn for bringing my attention to Renzo Piano's creation. Warning! The sea level is rising three to four times faster than the world average on the East Coast of the U.S., from Cape Hatteras, NC, to Cape Cod, MA, because of melting ice sheets and the fact that warmer water expands. The rise ranges from 2.8 inches in New York City to 4.8 inches in Norfolk, Virginia. As to be expected, 77% of Utah Mormons say they are excited about Mitt Romney's candidacy. But 68% believe it will bring bad publicity about their faith. To think, some years ago we had a call from Mitt's father George Romney, con- gratulating my advertising agency for the good work we were doing in promoting The Rambler. Yes, at that time he was president of American Motors, makers of the Rambler. What? Men who drink lots of black tea may be increas- ing their risk of prostate cancer, even though tea improves their health in other ways. Researchers at the University of Glasgow in the U.K. tracked the health habits, tea consumption and medical reports of more than 6,000 men between the ages of 21 and 75 over nearly 40 years. They found that those who drank more than seven cups of black tea per day were 50 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than those who had three cups or fewer. The finding is sur- prising because previous research has suggested that drinking tea lowers the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. In fact, drinking black tea may have an over- all positive health effect that trumps its correlation with prostate cancer. Enough said. Time for a spot-of-teal Cheese is better than but- ten New research has found L. - Direc & Proyrie : : seet  3 its : ::: I 0 0 0 that eating hard cheese is far better for the arteries than creamy butter that has the equivalent number of calo- ries. So have a big piece of Parmigianino or Parmesan cheese! Eating sweets beats the blues! Cake, ice cream and other sweet fatty treats really DO make you feel happy, new research reveals. And Vita- min D3 may increase your eyesight as you grow older, say scientists. Vitamin D could be useful in helping to prevent a range of age- related health problems, from deteriorating vision to heart disease. So says researcher Dr. Glen Jeffrey of Great Britain. Yes! We do take Vitamin D! Show biz reminiscing with the stately handsome Albert Natale. We decided to reveal the "permanent addresses" of famous entertainers.

KELLY, Executive Director 68 Central Square East Boston, MA 02128 617-569-3221 Recipes #rorn the Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Roasted (Broiled) Red Bell Peppers 4 red peppers Salt 1 large garlic clove minced 4 brown paper lunch bags 3 tablespoons olive oil Wash and dry red peppers thoroughly. Place them whole on a broiling tray under the broiler. Broil until the outer skin of pepper begins to darken. Check frequently by removing from oven and turn each pepper as it blackens. It only takes a few minutes for the skin to blacken. (If left under broiler too long, the pepper will burn.) Continue broil- ing and turning in this fashion until most of the outer skin of each pepper has blackened though not necessarily the entire pepper. Remove peppers from oven. Put one or two peppers together in a paper lunch bag and close tightly. Because liquid from peppers may seep through bags, place on a cookie sheet. After cooling in paper bag for at least fifteen to thirty minutes, take one bag at a time and place on clean dish. Tear open bag and carefully peel off outer skin of each soflened pepper. Gently cut around the stem to remove stem and seeds from the pepper. Cut pepper in half and remove any remaining seeds. Slice pepper into long one-inch strips and set aside in a sepa- rate bowl. Liquid will accumulate as pepper strips rest in bowl. Save for marinade. Spread minced garlic over pepper strips in a bowl. Add olive oil and stir thoroughly. Salt to taste. Cover and plac e in refrigerator or on your counter. Before serving, to enhance flavor, marinate roasted/broiled peppers at least thirty minutes in the garlic, oil and pepper liquids. The peppers can be heated in the microwave if desired. They store well, for a few days, in the refrigerator in a clean jar or plastic container. NOTE: Because they were only available in the summer when I was young, I welcome the opportunity to prepare them often now that peppers can be purchased daily. My family enjoys them with baked chicken, steaks, or chops. 00lappy 00Flnni00ersar 9 PRINCE ST. LAUNDRY PROP: ISABEL MILLS Phone: (617) 227-0510 22 Prince Street Boston's North End Appraisals k,,_ O.
