FAMILY TIME: How to help kids adjust to sleep schedule changes - Weekly family rail, with tips on how to help kids adjust to sleep schedule changes, Halloween movies and more. By GHNS.
* Localization tip: Any of the first three items can be localized – ask a local family counselor to provide a tip of the week, ask movie-going parents to give reviews of movies or ask youngsters to send in book reviews.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Getting the freshest seasonal produce - Weekly Food for Thought with tips on getting fresh seasonal produce, an easy recipe for chicken tacos and a review of new cookbook "Modernist Cuisine at Home." By GHNS.
TREASURES: James Earle Fraser-inspired horse sculpture - Dear Helaine and Joe: This bronze horse is signed on the saddle, "J. E. Fraser." I believe this is for James Earle Fraser. The horse is 43 inches tall, 70 inches long and 25 inches wide and weighs 365 pounds. It is in good condition except for missing tie straps on each side of the saddle. Could you tell me the value and where I might be able to sell it? By Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson, Scripps Howard
HOBBIES: Make a haunted terrarium for Halloween - When I was little, I loved making terrariums. Any type of small world that I could create made me so happy. Terrariums are easy to customize -- from the jar to the plants to the little figurines you can add to tell a story. Why not get your children involved, or invite friends over to make your Halloween themed terrariums together? By Dena Fishbein, Scripps Howard
BUTTONED UP: Decorate for Halloween for less than $15 - The average American plans to spend well over $70 this year on Halloween decorations, candy and costumes. Can you see us recoiling in horror from there? By Sarah Welch and Alicia Rockmore, Scripps Howard
YARDSMART: Symmetrical cactus sets off modern design - The orderly nature of modern design appeals to our need for simplicity in a progressively complex world. The simple lines of both modern architecture and interiors offers respite from strip commercial, traffic and media where color and image change faster than ever. By Maureen Gilmer, Scripps Howard.
UNIQUE HOUSE: Couple's house mixes Scandinavian-Japanese styles - The back of Kathy Wallace and Sarah Pradt's house in St. Paul, Minn., gets a lot of light. But for the first 14 years they lived there, they didn't see much of it. That's because the spaces on the back of the house weren't very inviting: an old sloping porch that attracted wasps, a tiny den/guest room and a small, outdated kitchen. By Kim Palmer, Scripps Howard.
GARY BROWN: Not adding up? Must be another New Math - This is going to be distressing to grade school pupils of the 1960s, but apparently there is another New Math. By Gary Brown, Canton, Ohio.

PETER CHIANCA: What did Ella Fitzgerald do to deserve Rod Stewart? - I was surprised this week when I got an email from none other than Rod Stewart to let me know about his impending Christmas album, “Merry Christmas, Baby.” (I use the word “impending” because “upcoming” somehow didn’t seem sufficiently apocalyptic.) The album apparently includes a "new collaboration with Ella Fitzgerald,” a statement so fundamentally wrong that I’m fairly sure I heard the heavens crack open and rain a torrent of bitter tears for all eternity. By Peter Chianca, North of Boston.

AMY GEHRT: Boy Scouts’ ‘perversion files’ reveal alarming abuse details - A new child sex-abuse scandal has surfaced, putting the reputation of yet another storied institution on the line. By Amy Gehrt, Pekin, Ill.
JARED OLAR: ‘A dreamer born is a hero bred’ - Was he brave or crazy? A hero or a thrill-seeker irresistibly attracted to dangerous stunts? Maybe all of the above. I’m talking about Felix Baumgartner of Austria, nicknamed “Fearless Felix,” who made history last week as the first man to break the sound barrier without the aid of a jet plane or rocket, or any means of propulsion at all. By Jared Olar, Pekin, Ill.

SILVIO CALABI: Previewing BMW’s new 328i Touring - Driving in the UK can be a treat for us Yanks, even on the wrong side of the road and despite the treacle-like congestion near any British city. When the traffic opens up, things improve dramatically. The speed limit on the motorways is 70 mph, and it’s about to be raised to 80! As well, drivers generally maintain good lane discipline — “undertaking,” passing on the inside, is still illegal, so they actually move over for faster vehicles. Wouldn’t it be swell if we didn’t have to shove macho pickup trucks and oblivious minivans out of our passing lanes? Then we could make even better use of cars like this, BMW’s super-smooth new 328i Touring with the M Sport package. By Silvio Calabi, GHNS.
