RANDALL17 (Randall, SHNS; Column) -- If being a mama is the hardest job I've ever known, being a nana is by far the easiest. But both are equally rewarding. 650.



PROFILE-DULAINE (Sheridan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) -- High Profile. Dance instructor Pierre Dulaine does more than teach people to coordinate their steps and move to the music. He teaches tolerance, respect and kindness toward others. A Q&A. 900.


TELEVISIONQA-TV17 (Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) -- Readers ask about "The Killing," a "Closer" spinoff, "Deadwood" and more. 800.


VIDEO-FILM17 (LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle) -- Video Patrol. If you want to see the Charlie Chaplin classic "The Gold Rush," a newly released package is the best opportunity since 1925. The release contains a restored original version, plus a 1942 revision. 550.

GAMEON-VID17 (Campbell, SHNS; Game On column) -- Looking at "NCAA Football 13" and "Spec Ops: The Line." 550. With photos: SH12G124GAMEON, SH12G125GAMEON.


COMICS17 (Smith, SHNS; Captain Comics column) -- Is Batman, well, batty? That's the central issue in a new book by Robin S. Rosenberg, a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist, author, lecturer and certified hypnotist. "What's the Matter with Batman? An Unauthorized Look Under the Mask of the Caped Crusader" applies professional criteria to the questions that have always swirled around the sanity of a man whose response to tragedy has been to dress up like a flying rodent. 1,100. With photos: SH12G119COMICS, SH12G120COMICS.



COLDCHICKENSALAD (Keeler, Tampa Bay Times) -- My go-to hot-weather meal starts with a cold rotisserie chicken. From that humble beginning, I can make a dozen salads to soothe the savage beasts. Give 'em a try. 1,600. With photos: SH12G088COLDCHICKENSALAD, SH12G089COLDCHICKENSALAD, SH12G090COLDCHICKENSALAD.

RANCHDRESSING (Hastings, Winston-Salem Journal) -- Ranch dressing is at the top of a lot of folks' favorite list - on salads, and as a French-fry topping. And if you like store-bought ranch, you're going to love homemade ranch. The good news is that it's easy to make it fresh at home. 750.

SUMMERCOOKBOOKS (Folkman, Tampa Bay Times) -- Corn, lobster and guac, oh my! Three new cookbooks offer summertime fare. 1,100.

TIME2SAVE17 (Kasey Trenum, Time2saveworkshops.com; column) -- Saving on back-to-school items. 450. With photo: SH12G129TIME2SAVE. (Editors: This is also listed on the News-Biz sked. It is moving category l.)

ASKFOOD17 (Food Network Kitchens -- Column) -- Lightening up pasta salad. 300. With logo: ASKFOODLOGO.

FOODTIPS17 (Food Network Kitchens -- Column) -- How to slice an avocado. 150. With logo: FOODLOGO.


DEARTRIPADVISOR (Carlin, TripAdvisor.com) -- Learn to build and maintain a fire when asking for a fireplace in your inn room ... No loose lithium batteries allowed in checked luggage. 400.
