May 8 - 14, 2014 • It was noted British lexicographer Samuel Johnson by Samantha Weaver who made the following sage observation: “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” • If an American black bear is pregnant when it goes into hibernation, she could give birth without ever awakening. While she is still in her torpor, her body will draw on reserves of fat to produce milk to nurse her young. However, if something that could be dangerous to her young comes within 50 feet of the den, the mother bear’s heart rate will spike and she will wake to defend the cubs. • If you’re holding your nose, you can’t hum. Try it. • If you happen to be fortunate enough to spot numerous bears together in the wild (or unfortunate enough, depending on the circumstances), thanks to this column you’ll be able to call the group by its correct collective noun: It’s a sloth or sleuth of bears. • On a chemical level, there’s not too much difference between blood and seawater. • If you’ve ever looked closely at a zipper, you may have noticed the letters YKK on the tab. The letters stand for

Not only that, other parrotlets then learn to associate that exact series of peeps with that particular bird, and actually use the sounds to get its attention. ••• Thought for the Day: “I have often regretted my speech, never my silence.” -Xenocrates  © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

History

The first 50 years of the NIRA At a meeting on November 6th, 1948, in Alpine, Texas, twelve schools came together to discuss the creation of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Decided at that meeting was the need for a constitution, which was then established at a second meeting held in February 1949. Hank Finger, then Sul Ross State Universities Rodeo Club President and chairman of the constitutional committee, worked with that committee on developing eligibility guidelines, scholastic standards, and rodeo structure. The committee created a format for intercollegiate rodeo that would remain consistent throughout the country and provide national recognition for their constituents. At the first NIRA National Convention on April 14-15, 1949, in Denver, Colorado, final approval of the conStart

stitution was granted, fees were accepted, and rules and regulations were finalized. Three regions were formed; Southern, Northwest, and Rocky Mountain. Pro-tem president Charles Rankin was elected NIRA president. There were thirteen member schools at this time, representing Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, and Texas. August 1949 marked the official, legal birth of NIRA when they filed for non-profit status. The first College National Finals Rodeo was held the same year in San Francisco, California. The first NIRA All Around Champion crowned that year was Harley May of Sul Ross State University. Entering into the 60s, the Sikes family led college rodeo into consistent membership growth and the television boom. The 1962 College National Finals Rodeo appeared on ABC’s Wide World of Sports. NBC aired the 1965 finals, and ABC, again aired the event in 1967. Rodeo at this time was experiencing a huge growth in several areContinued on the next page

nas, professional and college, the television airtime was a welcomed partner in the growth. Member schools totaled 97 in 1966. Over the years, NIRA’s history has read like a Who’s Who in the sport of rodeo. Roy Cooper, Chris LeDoux, Ty Murray, Tuff Hedeman, Dan Mortensen, and many more, are all champions in college rodeo, as well as professional rodeo. They have added to the success of college rodeo, and created some of it’s rich western history. Preserving Western heritage through collegiate rodeo”, has been a theme repeated over the course of fifty years. Today these efforts are being made through over 100 college rodeos a year, over 3,500 student members annually and 137 member schools and universities. College rodeo has yet to its peak. What will the next fifty years offer?

Page 7

Do’s and Don’ts

Most of us have some strong negative feelings about “do’s and don’ts” just like we dislike other people telling what we must and must not do. but sometimes knowing where the pitfalls are ahead of time keeps us from falling into a hole we can’t get out of. And sometimes knowing what others did that did or did not work for their wedding helps us make our wedding even more special. As an officiant some of my recommendations are: 1. Do make your wedding a joint venture between bride and groom. Some grooms just want to know what to wear and where and when to show up. Some brides want to call all the shots and make all the decisions. Make your decisions together - you will be doing

this for the rest of your lives and this is a good place to start. 2. Do get everything that can get done in advance done as far in advance as you can. You don’t want to discover the day before your wedding that you have forgotten to get your marriage license or that your dress isn’t ready. 3. Do let your ceremony reflect who you are as individuals and who you are as a couple. This

can be done with the music, readings, vows and other personal stories and selections you make. 4. Do take into consideration “family tensions” or “sore spots” when you plan your seating. If parents have divorced and remarried and have tension in each other’s presence, be sensitive about how they are seated at both the ceremony and the reception or dinner. This will prevent unnecessary stress and perhaps tears.

2. Don’t be shy about speaking up for yourselves. This is your wedding. Just because Aunt somebody-or-other had her bridesmaids in dresses that looked like those in My Big Fat Greek Wedding doesn’t mean you have to do the same. Or because Uncle I-think-I-cansing-but-can’t wants to sing doesn’t mean you have to let him. Tell them how much you love them and thank each of them for their wonderful offer with a gentle statement that you’ve already chosen the dresses and planned the music (or whatever). 3. Don’t Procrastinate. This is another way to say what was said in #2 Do above. If you want a disaster the day before and the day of the wedding, just put things off. The more organized you are and the better you have delegated those “last minute” things, the more you will be able to participate in and enjoy wedding day. 5. Do delegate, delegate, delegate. Let other’s help so when the week of the wedding arrives you have time to enjoy your guests and not arrive at your own wedding too tired to enjoy it. Now how about the don’ts? 1. Don’t think you have to spend more money on a wedding than it would cost you for a college education or a new house. Some of the most beautiful and meaningful ceremonies are in someone’s back yard. It isn’t about how much money you spend but about the love between you. Think about how you can avoid going into your marriage on the edge of bankruptcy.

4. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about having everything perfect. Beautiful? Yes. Perfect is harder. Remember that this is a joyful celebration of love rather than an exercise in perfection. Most of us are not “practically perfect in every way” like Mary Poppins and we make mistakes. The mistake is generally the thing that gives you the fondest memories. I officiated a near perfect wedding and I was aware

that everything had gone right. At about that point, a bridesmaid fainted. She was quickly back on her feet and the ceremony proceeded, again, perfectly. There was no way this could be anticipated and prevented. They will talk about it with fond memories for years to come. 5. Don’t drink alcoholic beverages prior to the ceremony. There are enough challenges without having a best man or even the groom (or the maid of honor or even the bride) drunk at the ceremony. Yes, nerves are jangled and tension is high. But you don’t want the officiant to say, when it’s time for vows, “Please slur after me . . .”

Does 90-Year-Old Still Need Ob-Gyn?

DEAR DR. ROACH: Two years ago, at age 90, my gynecologist told me that I did not need to see him anymore because of my age. When I mentioned this to my daughter, she became outraged, and said that I need to continue my mammograms and visits to the doctor. What is your opinion? -- I.W. ANSWER: This is actually three questions in one, and none of t h e m i s e a s y. H o w long do you “need” to continue Pap smears and mammograms, and do you need to keep seeing your gynecologist? The Pap smear question actually is the easiest, since there is very good evidence that a woman who has had normal Pap smears regularly until age 65 is very unlikely to get cervical cancer. This does not apply to anyone with a history of cancer. continued oN next page...


May 8 - 14, 2014 When to stop mammograms is controversial. I feel that they can continue in healthy women indefinitely, but especially in the presence of some other serious disease, a woman over 75 could choose to stop. I still recommend a regular visit with the gynecologist. Even if a mammogram or Pap smear isn’t being done, the gynecologist can discuss other concerns and do an exam. Questions about breast cancer and its treatment are found in the booklet on that subject. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Roach -- No. 1101W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. ••• DEAR DR. ROACH: Our 48-year-old son has been

Tidbits of Casper - For Advertising call 307-473-8661 • 161 South Fenway, Casper, WY diagnosed with pityriasis rubra pilaris. He is miserable with the burning, red rash and the loss of skin cells. He now has extremely swollen ankles and feet. We know this is extremely rare. Can you lend any insight into treatment of symptoms? -- C.D. ANSWER: Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a rare inflammatory skin disease of unknown cause. Generalized redness, sometimes with islands of unaffected skin, is common. Scaly plaques and raised red bumps also occur. There are several treatments that have been effective for some people, but nothing is effective for everybody. Vitamin A derivatives are the usual first treatment, but more-powerful medicines often are needed. As is so often the case for rare diseases, finding the most experienced local expert (in this case, a dermatologist) can lead to better treatment for your son. I found a support group at www.prp-support.org. ••• DEAR DR. ROACH: Americans are infatuated with grilling, barbecuing and charring meat -- all forms of high-temperature cooking. Isn’t charred food carcinogenic, leading to stomach and colon cancers? -- S.B. ANSWER: Yes, charred meat is carcinogenic, at least according to the preponderance of the data. In fact, increased red meat of any kind probably increases overall cancer risk, but high-temperature cooking creates several kinds of toxic chemicals and increases colon cancer risk specifically.

Puzzles Answer

Page 11

There is some evidence that leaner cuts of red meat aren’t as dangerous, and also that marinating, especially in wine, reduces the production of the dangerous chemicals. I recommend limiting consumption of high-temperaturecooked red meats. ••• Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

RV Style By Tresa Erickson

boomers in particular. If you are considering joining them this year, here are some tips.

Imagine hitting the open road by day and camping out under the stars by night, all within the comforts of home. That‘s traveling RV style, and for some, there‘s just no other way to go. With over 15,000 campgrounds in the United States, RV trips have become the way to travel for many, the baby

Plan your route While seasoned travelers might choose to go wherever the road takes them, beginners should have some idea of where they are going to ensure a pleasant trip. Get out the road maps and travel guides. Check out the Internet listings and tourism boards. Find out where everyone wants to go and the best way to get there by RV. Don‘t forget about setting up camp for the night. Know where the best campgrounds are, pack the right road maps and make sure you have a GPS device. Select the right RV If you already own an RV, then you can skip this tip. If you don‘t, read on. Whether you‘re buying or selling, you will need an RV that can accommodate your needs. Think about the number of people you plan to take on the trip and future trips if you are answers on page 9

buying, and select an RV that can accommodate them. There is nothing worse than being squished into a small RV on a super long road trip. Be aware that the larger RV you get, the more you will have to pay for it and the fuel to run it. You might want to also keep in mind that not every campground can accommodate a rather large RV. Renting also eliminates the dilemma of what to do with the dress after the wedding. You simply return it to the store. You don’t have to worry about finding a place to store your dress or coming up with the funds to have it preserved. No, you won’t be able to take it out of your closet and look at it lovingly from time to time, but that’s what wedding photos are for. When you feel like reminiscing, you can get out your wedding photo book and finger through the pages. You won’t be able to pass on your wedding dress either, but come on, how many daughters, nieces and granddaughters want to wear an outof-style wedding dress? Do you? Pack for all scenarios RVs do break down, so make sure you have a roadside emergency kit complete with a fully charged cell phone and the number of a roadside service provider. Have a first aid kit as well and apparel for the weather. That‘s right. You‘ll want to check the forecast for your destination and make sure everyone brings the right apparel for the weather as well as the activities planned. You‘ll also want to make sure you have everything needed to break camp, along with personal items like CDs, DVDs and books.

Shelters Aren’t Only Place to Volunteer DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I want to volunteer somehow to help pets in my area, but can’t really find any opportunities. I called the local shelter, and they said they aren’t accepting volunteers right now. Why not? I thought shelters were desperate for help. Where else can I look? -- Tanya J., via email DEAR TANYA: While some shelters accept any help that is offered, many have implemented more controlled volunteer programs. This allows them to have a better handle on which volunteers are available at certain times, who has more experience working with animals and who has less, and so on. A better question to ask your local shelter is whether it has any volunteer programs available,

now or in the near future, or any other opportunities to help. If not, you can ask if it is affiliated with a larger organization, such as the ASPCA, and find a contact there who has information about volunteer

opportunities. Many shelters offer fundraising events that are more fun and less work. If you’re not able to give money to the cause, you could offer to help at these events. Or, you can participate in charity walks -- either by yourself or by rounding up a group of friends -- and raise money that way. Check your local newspaper for event listings and news from the local shelter. Many newspapers have an online component, and could have a lot more information on their website in a section reserved for the local shelters. Visit the veterinarian and look for a bulletin board in the waiting room. If there is one, there likely are notices posted about events and volunteer opportunities. Or you can talk to the vet or an assistant during your pet’s checkup about your interest in volunteering somewhere, somehow.

Put Closet Doors Back on Track

Q: My apartment has closet doors that fold open on sliding tracks. Over the past month, the doors have started sticking and one is completely off the track and just swinging open. Is this hard to fix? Our maintenance guys aren’t so reliable. -- Mindy H., Atlanta A: If the slider attachment at the top of the door isn’t damaged, you should be able to easily put the bifold door back on its track.

Reach up to the top of the detached door -- or climb onto a sturdy stepladder or footstool so you can reach -- and feel along the top near the front edge of the door. You should feel a round disc, or wheel, sticking up. Place your finger on top of the wheel and push down. If it’s spring-loaded, the disc will depress down and then spring back up. Check the bottom of the door as well. If the door opens along a top and bottom track, a similar wheel, or a simple metal pin called a pivot, will be located in the same position near the front of the door. It may or may not have a spring. If both wheels are in good shape, great. If either one is broken or missing, contact apartment maintenance to have them repair the door. O r, i f t h e y d o n ’ t respond, contact management and ask

if they can either speed up the repair, or if you can do the repair yourself and have them take the difference off the bill (you’ll need to give them a receipt for parts and labor). Let’s start from the premise that both wheels are all right. It’s a pretty easy fix, made easier if a friend helps steady the door. If one of the wheels isn’t spring-loaded, carefully ease that rigid wheel into the corresponding track. Then reach up (or down) to the spring-loaded disc, depress it with one finger, and guide that part of the door back into its corresponding track, sliding your finger out of the way until the disc pops up into the track. Move the door back and forth a couple times to test it. What if the door doesn’t seem be straight? That can cause the wheels to stick in or jump out of the tracks. You can adjust the door in a number of ways: The Family Handyman website (www. familyhandyman.com) has a step-by-step description of how to do it.

HOME TIP: To smooth a sliding door’s path, put a thin coat of wax or silicone spray on the wheels. Send your questions or home tips to ask@ thisisahammer.com. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
