One problem: I currently envision a row of hollyhocks right where my husband was planning to install a bed of asparagus. What’s a couple to do? Anyone who’s been in a long-term relationship knows the answer to this one—compromise. Many of this issue’s stories involve skillful people using their wits to achieve a successful outcome.

Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig played first base for the New York Yankees from 1923 to ’39. On May 2, 1939, after playing in 2,130 consecutive games, he took himself out of the lineup because of muscle weakness caused by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). What else do you know about the legend? 1 In which two years was Gehrig named the American League’s most valuable player? 2 Gehrig was the first American League player to do what in a single game? 3 In what year did Gehrig win baseball’s Triple Crown with a .363 average, 49 homers and 165 RBIs? 4 This nickname honored Gehrig’s strength, endurance, and ability to play through pain. 5 Gehrig’s accomplishments were often overshadowed by what two fellow Yankees who batted before him? 6 When Gehrig retired in 1939, what was…
