The on-again, off-again realm of Hartland statues is on again, with the announcement that the third incarnation is beginning to ship new Honus Wagner and Cy Young statues and has Roy Rogers and Johnny Unitas projects set to roll in the immediate future. Hartland vice president Ken Movold recently said: "A tremendous amount of activity has been going on behind the scenes and we have accomplished a great deal. Unfortunately, we are behind where we expected to be at this time, but we feel we're about to be on the launching pad. " The NFL recently licensed Hartland U.S.A.

Outside the classroom, 13-year-old Chelsea Robinson is a cheerleader who plays basketball and helps her father coach three soccer teams. But in class at Gateway Regional High School, the eighth grader's face regularly turns blue, and she struggles to breathe as she rushes to the nurse. Jim and Nina Robinson, her parents, implored the school board Wednesday night to test the air in the building, which they said had kept their daughter from attending all but six days of school this fall.

Baby Blue Saga Cheese. $5.99 per 12-oz. wheel. Bonnie: Blue Saga is a creamy, mild Danish cheese with pungently flavored blue veins. Like other blue cheeses, the visible dark-colored veins are from the safe-to-eat mold that's been injected during the cheese-making process. Baby Saga is just this company's Classic Blue Saga in a convenient 12-ounce round. Both Baby and Classic Saga are high-fat cheeses. Each contains about 12 grams fat in a 130-calories-per-ounce serving. But Saga is lower in fat than such desserts as an ice cream sundae or strawberry shortcake, which is why I'd serve Saga European-style, along with some fresh fruit for dessert.

Q. My wife and I have been concerned for some time about what controls this country puts on foreign imports of food products. Can they outlaw products that have been sprayed with pesticides that have been banned in California, which is where we live? If so, how do they determine this? Fresno, Calif. A. The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for the inspection of imported food and the banning of contaminated food as a result of the inspection. But, according to two studies made by the General Accounting Office, which is an investigative arm of the U.S. Congress, the FDA is not doing its job properly.

Dear Polly: The chrome faucets on my bathroom sink are getting a crusty white lime buildup, especially around the faucet handles and in hard-to-reach places. Is there an easy way to clean these areas? - P.L.E. Dear P.L.E.: Help is at hand in the humble but hard-working form of an ordinary toothbrush and an inexpensive bottle of white vinegar. If wiping with a vinegar-soaked sponge doesn't do the job (and those tiny places certainly are hard to reach!), saturate a cloth or paper towel with vinegar and lay it over the crusty places for a few minutes.

It starts in April with the tree pollens - the elm, poplar, willow, maple and ash. Others soon join the botanic orgy - the birch and mulberry. And then the hickory, oak and sycamore . . . and more. Eventually, it's the mold spores. And finally, diabolically, the grasses kick in, and the weeds. This is how the wonder of spring fever becomes the horror of hay fever. This is how a young man's fancy - or, say, the fancy of some 40 million Americans - turns to a misery so mundane that no one has thought to blunt it with a support group, or a line of sympathy cards or a telethon.

In the end, it was probably Dinky. In the parlor. With dander. The clues all pointed to him, but South Jersey medical examiner Gerald Feigin wanted to rule out other suspects first. Now, Feigin has deduced that his own mutt, Dinky Little Dog, has been slowly "killing me. " The Chihuahua-terrier mix looks innocent as he snoozes by the sofa, but Dinky's black-and-white fur has been harboring tiny doses of allergens from sloughed-off skin cells. Feigin began sleeping in a backyard tent in June to escape a mysterious illness he blamed on invisible mold mycotoxins inside his tony home in Washington Township.

In a litigious society, conventional wisdom suggests that you pass the buck as often as possible to avoid being sued. In real estate, that's referred to as "risk management. " "Risks for real estate agents and brokers can be reduced greatly if we can shift them to someone else," said Marcie Roggow, a Realtor and president of Creative Learning Concepts in Sioux Falls, Iowa. For example, she said, home inspectors "realize that we have shifted the risk to them, so we are now trying to shift the risk to someone else.
