It's the same remedy discovered by skiers after a vigorous day on the slopes to avoid "charlie horses." Remembering 'Do-it- Yourself' Car Maintenance by Richard Marks Gambrills, MD It was time to change the spark plugs and battery in my car -- some- thing I had done many times in my youth. I soon found cars have changed. My spark plugs were hidden under a maze of wires, hoses and whatevers. Replacing them required removing cross braces and numerous obstruc- tions, which I soon discovered re- quired special tools which I did not have. Once. this would have also been time to replace the points (a switch that was opened and closed by a rotor to fire the individual spark plugs), but this once-frequent mainte- nance job had been eliminated by eliminating mechanical points -- a big advantage of today's cars. Changing or cleaning of spark plugs used to be necessary every few thou- sand miles. Spark plug cleaning ma- chines were available for one to clean the plugs -- haven't seen one in years! Now, platinum spark plugs can last 100,000 miles. To replace the battery was a job once easily accomplished with noth- ing more than a pair of pliers and a few minutes' time. Looking at my current car, I noticed that getting ac- cess now required the removal of even more motor compartment parts. Get- ting the battery out, and the new one in the tight space, would be a difficult feat. Thank goodness, I did not need to replace my fan belt. It obviously would no longer be the simple task of the past. At least I can still change my motor oil and filter, but with some difficulty. All of this brings back memories of doing maintenance on my car using only a socket wrench, screwdriver. pliers, common sernse, and visual observation. Do the cars of today need to be so complex and tightly packed? Technology of yesteryear often re- quired that a unit be made of indi- vidual assembled parts bolted together and, thus, subject to disassembly for individual internal parts replacements. At that time, inexpensive parts kits were readily available for common repairs, such as brake cylinders and ;Shoes, fueI pumps and Wat6rlSumps. I "ecall my father replacing his piston rings using a piston ring kit. It was a time when many people, including myself, did most of their own repairs. Now one must have computers, spe- cial tools, car maintenance manuals. and specialized training to do what once might have been a "driveway repair." Common sense, observation, and simple tools are no longer ad- equate. Comparing the cars of my youth with my current car, I find that the power trains are defacto the same; both have essentially the same con- ceptual combustion engines. Maybe cars have gotten more complex be- cause of the many modern "add-ons," such as air conditioning, computer- ized controls, and numerous electronic gadgets, most of which must find room under the hood. Gone are the days of home car maintenance. Now one must seek out a car repair shop for what once might have been a"do-it-yourself'job. Gone are most of the consumer parts kits. Repairs or maintenance once done at home requires professionals and can cost hundreds of dollars (which I have learned from experience). I wonder what repairing future hy- brid and other special-fuel cars will involve? Their complexity will prob- ably make the maintenance of today's car seem simple and inexpensive. ..

Phil Tips For West Virginians To Prevent Home Burglaries Everyone looks forward to this time, of year. including burglars. With, many people away, visiting friends. or just out of the house shopping, there are many good prospects for break-ins. Experts agree that it is a very vulnerable time for homeowners. "People are busy and distracted." said Ray Palermo. director of public rela- tions for Response Insurance. "As they race out the door, they are not thinking about what they leave be- hind." He offered a few precautions to help prevent homeowners from fall- ing victim to thieves during this time of year. Examine the exterior of your house. Make sure all locked doors and win- dows have a tight fit when closed. Check to see if there is any "wiggle room" that could give a thief enough space to jimmy it open. Walk around your whole property to ensure there is nothing that can be used to climb to upper floors. Look in your windows to make sure blinds are positioned to screen the interior view. but not closed completely. You may want to move any computers and TVs away from prying eyes. Never leave an "emer- gency key" hidden outside your house. Always leave your home in a se- cure state, regardless of the amount of time you expect to be away. A burglar watching your house is capable of taking what he wants in a few care- fully planned moments. When you are away from the house. particularly for an extended period. be sure to make it look lived-in. Put timers on a few lights at varied times; put a timer on a radio set to a talk- radio station; install a dusk/dawn out- side light or motion detector; ask a neighbor to pick up your mail and any circulars that might pile up on your doorstep; and stop delivery of news- Berlin Road Weston, WV wv 1-800-427-4155 304-269-5155 MeN. - FRI. 9 - 5 SAT.

[n many instances, installing a home alarm system will give you protec- tion. a sense of calm and even a dis- count on your homeowner's insur- ance. Inventory your major possessions. An easy way is to place valuables out on tables and videotape your house. room-to-room of all furniture, paint- ings and other possessions. Place the list. any photos/video you took. and perhaps the valuables themselves, in a safe. separate location. Tell a trusted neighbor on your block that you will be away. Activity or noise that might otherwise seem nor- mal to them would be alarming if they knew you are away from home. Be sure your homeowner's insur- ance coverage reflects any improve- ments or purchases that have increased the value of your home or its contents since you got your homeowner's policy. The only thing worse than losing your possessions is not being sufficiently covered to recoup your losses. Additional information on this and other car and homeowner topics is available at the Response Insurance Safety Information Center website. www. response, com/safe. Boating Safety Education Course The WV Division of Natural Re- sources will hold a Boating Safety Education Course at the Calhoun/ Gilmer Career Center on February 19 and 20. 2009. from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Students must be at least ten years of age to be certified. The course is open to the public and is free of charge. The 2000 West Virginia Legisla- ture passed a mandatory boating edu- cation law that became effective Janu- ary I. 2001. The law requires that any person born after December 31.1986 must successfully complete a boating education course and receive a certi- fication card to operate a motorboat on the waters of the state. Personal watercraft and electric powered boats are classified as motorboats therefore the Boating Education certification will also be required to operate these vessels. Class size is limited so pre-registra- tion is required. If you would like to register or need additional informa- tion. please contact the WV DNR District VI office at 304-420-4550 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m The secret of dealing success- fully with a child is not to be its parent. --Mell Lazarus ..=...- . ..... _...
