They may be hiding the most incendiary secret of all.“Contempt” by Ken StarrTwenty years after the Starr Report and the Clinton impeachment, former special prosecutor Starr finally shares his definitive account of one of the most divisive periods in American history. This book proves that the Clintons weren’t victims of a so called “vast right-wing Conspiracy.” They played fast and loose with the law and abused their powers and privileges.Libraries = InformationIf you think of vitamins as the chewable cartoon characters of childhood or overhyped by the supplement industry, you may wonder if they really matter. The answer: Yes in a big way. Humans can’t survive without the 14 vitamins — A, C, D, E, K, choline and B complex — and 15 minerals. Most people can get all the vitamins and minerals needed from a diet of vegetables, fruit, protein, dairy, healthy oils and whole grains. After age 50 the absorption of some vitamins begins a slow decline. Along with age, vitamin deficits can also be caused or exacerbated by a number of issues, including some medications, diminished appetite, forgetting to eat due to memory loss or depression, poor food choices, too much alcohol and illness. Only a lab test can find a vitamin shortage. The consequences of vitamin deficiency can be serious. For example, a vitamin D deficit can cause cognitive impairment and raise the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.Stingy Schobel SaysHere are a few more ways to save (continued from last week): a programmable thermostat can save a $100 a year, cleaning your dryer lint trap after every use can save $100 a year, an average lawn needs 1 inch of water a week — 2 inches can cost you $158 a season.Library LaughDid anyone notice that the “&”symbol looks like a dog dragging his behind across the floor?
