TIDBITS® HEADS TO THE

WORLD SERIES by Kathy Wolfe

The World Series is scheduled to begin on October 23. Tidbits takes you out to the ball game with the history of baseball’s Fall Classic, and says, “Play ball!” • Although Major League Baseball has had some sort of post-season championship series since about 1884, the World Series as we know it began in 1903 when the Pittsburgh Pirates competed against the Boston Americans. Boston took the Series in what was then a ninegame series, five games to three. • Every now and then, all the World Series games were played in one city, for example, the 1906 Series which was played by the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox. But it’s pretty rare for all the games to be played in the same ballpark. In 1921 and 1922, both New York teams, the Yankees and the Giants used the Polo Grounds as their park, where all the games were played. In 1944, the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns battled it out in one stadium, Sportsman’s Park. • The World Series ring is a familiar award given to players as a token of their victory. However, up until 1922, players received pocket Continued on Page 6

AKC, USDA at Odds Over Breeder Rules DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Is it true that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is banning professional dog breeding? — Concerned Owner in Iowa DEAR CONCERNED: Nope, it’s not true. However, the USDA has implemented some new rules that will bring Internet-based pet breeders and sellers under the regulation of the Animal Welfare Act. The rules narrow the definition of a retail pet store and expand the agency’s oversight of pet breeders. On the plus side, the new rules could make it harder for notorious “puppy mills” to exist, because breeders with four or more breeding females, and those who sell puppies “sight unseen,” now have to be licensed through the USDA. On the negative side, argues the American Kennel Club, the rules are nebulous in certain areas. For example, determining which females are truly “breeding females” can make things harder for small breeders and hobbyists. “The AKC remains extremely concerned that the rule will make it difficult for individuals to self-report, as they would not be able to know — without an APHIS inspection ... before applying for a license — whether they would be required to obtain a license.”

And new standards or facilities could make it much harder for hobbyists and small breeders to raise dogs in their homes. “It is not reasonable to expect small breeders, who keep a handful of dogs and make a choice to raise dogs in their homes, to be able to meet exacting USDA kennel engineering standards that are designed for large commercial wholesale or research kennels,” the AKC said. So, dog breeders still will be in business when the new rules take effect in November, but they may

have more work cut out for them. Cat and rabbit breeders also are affected. Send your questions or comments to ask@pawscorner.com. . © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

The tradition of hunting on Wyoming’s public lands began more than a century ago and that tradition continues to thrive today. Many of Wyoming’s residents are avid hunters who enjoy sharing the experience with family and friends. In addition, people from across the country travel to Wyoming each fall to experience the thrill of hunting Wyoming’s big game species. License applications may be submitted singly or in party groups of 2 to 6 people. The legal age for hunting big game is 12. A hunter safety card is required by law for anyone born after January 1, 1966. Out of state hunter safety cards are honored. The card must be in hunter’s possession at all times. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department Regulations are revised periodically and hunters are encouraged to check for updates on a regular basis. Future season dates may change from year to year, so plan far in advance. Visit www.wgfd.wyo.gov for more information.

Wyoming’s Top Ten Hunting Violations

visible external sex organs, head or antlers shall accompany the animal as a whole.

HUNTING IN THE WRONG AREA For example, a general license is only valid in general license areas and cannot be legally used in limited quota areas. A limited quota It is illegal to shoot from or across a public license is only valid for the road when hunting or target shooting. Two- area or areas listed and no others. track roads on public lands are not public roads.

Hunters must carry highway. their hunter education card with them.

SHOOTING FROM A PUBLIC ROAD

FAILURE TO RETAIN TAGGING EVIDENCE OF VIOLATIONS GENDER ON A These violations range from forgetting to sign BIG GAME your license in the excitement of having just ANIMAL bagged a big game animal to a “slick license” where the hunter intentionally omits all the tagging procedure with the hope of using the license again. Hunters are reminded detailed tagging instructions are printed on each big game license.

October 17th-23rd 2013

Some licenses and hunt areas require a specific gender be harvested. When there are gender restrictions, either the

FALSE OATH When a non-resident purchases resident licenses or a person purchases resident licenses without having resided in and been domiciled in the state for one full year immediately preceding the date of purchase of the license.

TRESPASSING Hunters must have permission to enter private land in Wyoming, even if the intent is to just cross the private land to reach public land. In Wyoming, private property does not have to be posted to deny access.

WANTON DESTRUCTION Shooting an animal and leaving it to waste. The most common occurrence of this is a hunter who “high grades” or abandons a big game animal wanting one with larger antlers.

FAILURE TO WEAR FLOURESCENT ORANGE

For whatever reason, some big game hunters still refuse to wear fluorescent orange. Wyoming has a flexible hunter orange law com-

pared to many states. In Wyoming, hunters must visibly wear a fluorescent orange vest/ coat, hat or both.

FAILURE TO PURCHASE CONSERVATION STAMP In addition to the license, all hunters, except Pioneer License holders who are exercising hunting or fishing privileges under a pioneer license, must purchase a $12.50 Conservation Stamp. If the pioneer is hunting on a non-pioneer license, a conservation stamp is required.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW:

• Hunter Safety: : If you are going to hunt with us and your age requires a hunters safety course Please be aware you must carry valid proof of completing this course before going afield. You will be required to take a safety course if you were born after Jan. 1st 1966. If you are in need of this course please contact your local Department of Natural Resources(or equivalent) for available classes and locations. • Safety Orange: Big Game hunters in Wyoming must wear, in a visible manner, one or more exterior garments of hunter orange, from the waist up

Why Some Women Have Mustaches DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I watch a lot of TV news. Without naming names, there are two very attractive women reporters, dark-haired, who have prominent mustaches. I find this distracting. Is unwanted hair removal so very painful or costly that they would not have it done? We have a niece with the same problem, but I would never mention it to her. What’s going on? — D.B. ANSWER: Many women have hair growing in places usually reserved only for men — the mustache area, the chin, the chest, the upper back and the arms. It’s called hirsuitism (HER-suetizm), and it’s not uncommon. About 5 percent of women in the childbearing years have it, and more women develop it after menopause. It has to do with the balance between male and female hormones. Women make male hormones. Some make slightly more than normal, and other women might have hair follicles that are more sensitive to male hormones than they should be. In either case, hirsuitism is the result. It might be the only sign of male hormone production, or there may be other signs of hormone excess. For many, this is nothing more than a family trait. For others, it can be a sign of trouble in the adrenal gland, the thyroid gland, the pituitary gland or the ovaries. One somewhatcommon condition that produces such an imbalance is polycystic ovary syndrome. Not every woman with mustache growth needs an exhaustive investigation, but women should mention it to their doctor to see if the doctor thinks further pursuit is in order. A number of options are open to women who want the hair removed. Shaving and bleaching the hair are two cheap ones. Vaniqa cream — relatively new — can be effective. Electrolysis

and laser treatments destroy the hair follicles. Electrolysis is somewhat painful, but not so greatly painful that it’s unbearable. Women reporters can afford either procedure. Male hormone excess can be treated with a number of medicines, and that can rid women of unwanted hair. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My next-door neighbor turned yellow ... bright yellow. I had never seen that before. Her husband says she has jaundice. What exactly is that? How is it treated? — C.M. ANSWER: Jaundice indicates that the skin and the whites of the eyes have turned yellow. It’s not an illness. It comes from the French word for yellow. Jaundice indicates liver trouble. When the liver is functioning normally, it clears the blood of bilirubin, a byproduct of worn-out red blood cells. If the liver’s not up to par, bilirubin levels in the blood rise, and that turns the skin and whites of the eyes yellow.

Your neighbor’s doctor has the task of finding the cause of jaundice. Only if the cause is identified can the liver be properly treated. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Isn’t liver cirrhosis the final cause of death in alcoholics? My dad was an alcoholic, but he didn’t die of cirrhosis. Why? — L.C. ANSWER: Not every alcoholic develops cirrhosis, which is scarring of the liver. Your dad might have had a genetic endowment that protected his liver. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

WORLD SERIES (continued):

to Yonkers, New York. When Ella was six, she was joined by a new sister, Frances. Her stepfather was a ditchdigger and part-time chauffeur, while her mother worked at a laundromat. As a child, Ella worked as a runner for local gamblers, picking up bets and distributing winnings. When Ella was 15, her mother died from injuries received in a car accident, and Ella went to live with her aunt. Shortly afterward, her stepfather died from a heart attack, and Frances joined Ella and their aunt. Life was not happy for Ella, and her schoolwork suffered significantly. She was frequently truant, and before long was in trouble with the law and was sent to reform school, where she was beaten by the personnel there. Ella managed to escape, but was without money and alone in the midst of the Great Depression. Each week, Harlem’s Apollo Theater hosted an amateur talent night, and in 1934, when Ella was 17, her name was selected in the drawing to compete. She was planning a dance number, but when the preceding act featured some rather exceptional dancers, Ella made a last-minute decision to sing, one that would change her life. She crooned one of her mother’s favorites, and at the end, the audience demanded an encore. Several more talent show wins followed, and early in 1935, the prize was a weeklong gig at the Harlem Opera House. A popular bandleader, Chick Webb, heard Ella and invited her to travel with the band for $12.50 a week. Ella recorded her first song at 19, and had a number one song and million-copy seller at 21. Her version of the nursery rhyme, “A Tisket, A-Tasket” in a swing/bebop style stayed on the charts for 17 weeks. When Ella was 22, her mentor Chick Webb passed away, and the band was renamed “Ella Fitzgerald and Her Famous Band,” as she took on the bandleader duties for the next three years. She then began touring and recording with other big bands, including those of Dizzy Gillespie and Louis Armstrong. She married the bass player of Gillespie’s group, Ray Brown, and the couple adopted a son. Ella mastered the technique of “scat” singing, that vocal improvisation of nonsense syllables that mimics another instrument

in the band. In other words, her voice performed the equivalent of an instrumental solo, with scales, arpeggios, and riffs. • During the 1950s and 1960s, Ella was a regular on television variety shows, “The Bing Crosby Show,” “The Dinah Shore Show,” “The Andy Williams Show,” and “The Ed Sullivan Show,” among several others. • Over the course of her career, Ella Fitzgerald recorded over 200 albums, which produced sales of 40 million albums, won 13 Grammy Awards, and performed at Carnegie Hall 26 times. Circulation problems related to diabetes resulted in Ella having both of her legs amputated below the knees when she was 76. Never fully recovering, she passed away at age 79 in 1996. HALLOWEEN The word “Halloween” is a contraction of “All Hallows’ Eve.” Early Christian holy days included All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows or Hallowmas, celebrated on November 1. • Americans spend over $5 billion every year celebrating Halloween, while Canadians drop about $1.5 billion. It’s the second highest grossing commercial holiday, after Christmas. In the U.S. about 600 million lbs. of candy (272 million kg) will be purchased nearly $2 billion worth, about $45 per household. • Halloween’s origins are Celtic during preChristian times. An ancient harvest festival known as Samhain marked the end of summer. The Celts believed that the spirits of the dead returned to visit the land of the living to damage crops and play tricks on the living on October 31, the first night of Samhain. The Celts wore animal skins at their bonfire festivities, and often sacrificed crops or animals to the spirits. Some donned ghost costumes, hoping to confuse the spirits or avoid being recognized by evil ones. On All Saints’ Day, early Christians dressed as saints or angels. The holy days blended together to give us our tradition of dressing up. When a large number of Irish immigrated to North America in the late 1800s, they brought their Celtic rituals with them. • America’s early celebrations were more of an autumn harvest festival with corn-popping parties, taffy pulls, and hayrides. The custom of trickor-treating evolved from Medieval England, when poor people would beg for sweet breads in exchange for praying for families’ souls, a practice called “souling.” In North America, this became trickor-treating, although this custom didn’t become popular until the 1930s. • Jack-o-lanterns were an Irish tradition, and were originally made from hollowed-out turnips. Their practice was to carve faces of the dead onto the vegetable and place a lighted candle inside to make it glow. • The first record of carving pumpkins is from 1837.

October 17th-23rd 2013

The word “pumpkin” has its origins in the Greek language, pepon, which translated “large melon.” The French modified this to pompon, and the British changed it to pumpion. American colonists adjusted it to “pumpkin.” One of America’s oldest known crops, the pumpkin originated in Mexico. It’s one of the most popular crops in the U.S., with annual production of about 1.5 billion lbs. (680 million kg). Illinois grows about 95% of the nation’s crop. Antarctica is the only continent that does not grow them. • Small varieties of pumpkins weighing 2 to 5 lbs. (.9 to 2.3 kg) include the Sugar, Winter Luxury, and Spooktacular. Intermediate types will weigh 8 to 15 lbs. (3.6 to 6.8 kg) with names such as Autumn Gold, Harvest Moon, and Funny Face. Weighing 15 to 40 lbs. (6.8 to 18.1 kg) are the Ghost Rider, Hercules, Jumpin’ Jack, and Big Tom. All are ready for harvest in about 110 days. The record for the world’s largest pumpkin belongs to a Rhode Island man named Ron Wallace, who hauled his massive 2,009-lb. (911 kg) pumpkin to the Topsfield, Massachusetts fair in September of 2012. • Halloween isn’t a fun time for everyone. Some folks suffer from Samhanophobia, an intense fear of Halloween, which can create severe panic attacks. Other phobias include the fear of witches (wiccaphobia), the fear of ghosts (phasmophobia), and the fear of cemeteries (coimetrophobia).
