B8 SUNDAY, MAY 18, 1997 LIFE THE SAUNA JOURNAL HOUSEHOLD HINTS HELOISE King Features Arthritis pain leads to changes in kitchen Dear Heloise: When arthritis made it painful to lift my coffee carafe full of water, I simply moved the coffeemaker near enough to the sink to be able to use the spray base to fill the water reservoir. It doesn't hurt my hand and there are no irksome spills. I sincerely enjoy your helpful hints. — Charlene Southwick, Phoenix Dear Charlene: Adapting is a real strength, no matter the age or circumstance. Your hint is a good, shining example. — Heloise Dear Heloise: When my children may need a medication at night, I premeasure it the night before and put it in a labeled bottle, like a bottle of the same medicine from a previous refill. That prevents my making a dangerous error in the middle of the night. It is also a good way for a baby sitter to give medication. One dose in a labeled bottle. It can make a big difference in a medical emergency situation. — Janet Hogan, Huntsville, Ala. Dear Heloise: Instead of buying brown paper wrap for mailing packages, I use a large paper grocery bag. (They do want us to recycle!) Cut it on the same edges that they glue, open it up, turn it with the printing on the inside and wrap away! The outside of your package will be clean for writing the address. — Diane Sullivan, Spokane, Wash. Send tips to Heloise, PO Box 795000, San Antonio TX 78279-5000 or fax it to 210-HELOISE.

This happened to me about $ a year ago. Numerous tests could not find any reason for me having blood in the urine. I remember that I overexerted myself doing aerobics, and that night, my back hurt. — M.M. Dear M.M.: Hematuria — blood in the urine — happens to as v many as one in five athletes who overexert. Nevertheless, when urine is bloody, everyone becomes unglued. And rightly so, for there are many serious conditions that can cause blood in the urine, including cancer, infections and stones. You had what I like to call DR. PAUL DONOHUE North America Syndicate "sports hematuria." The duration of exercise is a major factor in causing it. I can give you many explanations for why it happens, but let's keep it simple: The jostling movements of exercise break small, fragile blood vessels in the bladder and kidney. With two days of rest, the urine clears. No more blood is seen. An athlete participating in any sport is wise to consult a doctor when blood is seen in the urine. That is especially true if the athlete is older than 40, when urinary tract tumors peak. In most cases, nothing serious is found. All the same, self-diagnosis for a such an alarming sign is treading on thin ice. Dear Dr. Donohue: Every year I get tennis elbow. I can bank on it as much as I can that crabgrass will sprout in my lawn. What can I do to prevent it? — N.A. Dear N.A.: To prevent tennis elbow, strengthen forearm muscles. Get a lightweight dumbbell, 3 pounds maximum. While seated, rest your forearms on your thighs. Hold onto the dumbbell with your hand, knuckles up. Your hands should be hanging freely, not supported by your thighs. Bend your wrist slowly up and down eight times in a row. Then reverse your grip, holding the dumbbell with your knuckles down. Go for another eight bends of the wrist. As you gain strength, increase the dumbbell weight. There are many more preventive steps you should take. They are best left to a tennis pro, who can teach you proper stroke technique. Here are a few: • Use a comfortable grip. • Try to hit the ball well in front ofyou. • Don't bend your elbow when you hit a backhand shot. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a novice runner — at age 73! I like it, but my feet are somewhat sore af- ter I run. Which is the better shoe for me — a soft, well-padded one, or one with a firmer sole? — J.J. Dear J. J.: Intuition might point you in the direction of the well- padded, softer shoe. But intuition would be wrong in this case. Dr. Steven Robbins of Montreal General Hospital points out that you are able to keep your balance better when you wear shoes with thinner, harder soles. And such shoes might be easier on your feet. With shoes that have very soft soles, your feet don't pick up signals indicating change in the running surface. Falls are more common with such shoes. Get shoes with relatively thin, hard-rubber soles. Leather lace-up shoes with hard, skid-resistant soles also would be good. Dr. Donohue is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Write: P.O. Box 5539, Riverton, NJ 08077-5539.

That figure represents, for the first time in almost a decade, an increase in the number of drunk- driving fatalities compared to the preceding year. While deaths from drunk-driving are up, fund raising for Mothers Against Drunk Driving is down, as is media coverage given to the drunk-driving issue. Efforts to lower the legal blood alcohol concentration from .10 percent to .08 percent continue to founder in many states, thanks to vigorous lobbying by the liquor and hospitality industries. "You've heard so much about drunk-driving that there is a perception that it's a problem fixed or almost fixed," said Katherine Prescott, national president of MADD. But the problem is not fixed. In fact, 41 percent of all traffic fatalities involve alcohol.
