Home Improvement hazards??  If you’ve been putting off repairing a peeling windowsill, or you’re thinking of knocking out a wall, listen up: Check how old your house is. You may need to take steps to protect your kids from dangerous lead.  The risk of lead-based paint from older homes is back in the news, as the government considers tightening the definition of lead poisoning and young children. Lower levels than previously thought may harm their developing brains.  EPA lead information: http://www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/leadinfo.htm#hazard

(South Russell, Ohio) “Wally the Walmart horse” is looking for a new home. That’s the nickname given to a 9-year-old standardbred horse that was left at a northeast Ohio Walmart store by an Amish teenager more than two months ago. By standers say that the teen apparently unhooked the horse from a buggy, tied it to a rail at the Walmart in Middlefield and never came back for it.  He says store employees noticed the horse the next day and tended to it until police took it to a caregiver.  He says the humane society now has control of the horse and expects it to be available for adoption soon.   http://apnews.myway.com/article/20120107/D9S4B3601.html
