Crayon control

Remove crayon from walls by spraying the spot with lubricating oil and wiping it away with a paper towel. Finish by wiping with a drop of undiluted dishwashing liquid and a soft cloth.

Radio hazard

Research from Israel's ben-Gurion University of the Negev suggests that drivers listening to fast-tempo music run more red lights, change lanes more frequently and have more collisions. Cars are the most popular place to listen to music.

Today in regional history:

DEC. 12, 1932

Until January, when the Augusta National golf course formally will be opened, members of that club will probably devote their effort toward breaking the non-tournament marks established last week.

The crackling 69, shot Saturday by Bobby Jones before his return to Atlanta, certainly is safe from the assaults of the National golfers. But another record... that of Jay Monroe, who scored a 79, probably will be assaulted by course players.

It was the lowest mark shot by a member other than Jones since the course opened last week.

Some tips from health officials on preventing West Nile virus:

  • Throw away or bring indoors anything that can collect water where mosquitoes can breed, such as old tires, toys and buckets.
  • Keep fish in ponds and water gardens. They will eat mosquito eggs.
  • Maintain pools and hot tubs with proper chemicals and filtration. Remove trapped water on covers.
