• While attending Dartmouth College from 1921 to 1925, Theodor Suise Geisel became editorin-chief of the Jack-O-Lantern, Dartmouth’s humor magazine. He got into a bit of trouble when he and his friends were caught throwing a drinking party, which was against prohibition laws and school policy. He was banned from all extracurricular activities, including the magazine, so he began signing his work with the pen name “Seuss.” He got the idea for his first published book, “And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” while on a ship. He began putting words to the cadence of the boat’s engines. The phrase he kept repeating was, “And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street,” which became the foundation of a tale about a young boy who imagines a parade that grows more and more outrageous. • While on a boat trip up the River Thames in London, Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was accompanied by three young daughters of his friend Henry Liddell. He entertained the girls with a story about a bored little girl named Alice A who goes looking for(continued): an adventure. STORY IS BORN • The girls loved the story and one of them, Alice Liddell, asked Dodgson to write it down for her. For Christmas in 1864 he gave Alice a handwritten copy of the manuscript entitled “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground,” dedicating it as “a Christmas gift to a dear child in memory of a summer’s day.” The book was published in 1865. • In 1990, while on a crowded train from Manchester to London, the idea for Harry Potter suddenly “fell into her head,” says author Joanne Kathleen Rowling. Rowling sent her manuscript “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” to several prospective agents in 1995. After eight rejections by publishers, an offer came in but with one suggestion — that she change her pen name to a more gender-neutral name to address the fear that males in the targeted age group wouldn’t be interested in reading a novel written by a woman. She agreed and decided to use J. K. Rowling instead. • No one author is known to have written the story of Cinderella. Many versions of the folk tale have been shared for thousands of years throughout the world. The oldest recorded Cinderella story dates back to first century B.C. in ancient Greece. The tale is of a “rosycheeked” girl, who lived in the Greek colony of Naucratis in ancient Egypt. No matter how the story is told, the main character is always a young woman living in unfortunate circumstances that are suddenly changed to remarkable fortune. The theme remains constant — overcoming unjust oppression to find triumph and reward.

• There are children who will fight willingly and do so for varied reasons. They may fight to avenge the death of parents and families or like adults, they too may see themselves fighting for social justice or religious beliefs. Whole generations of children have grown up surrounded by violence as an everyday occurrence. This becomes their way of life. • To attempt to end the exploitation of children as solders, the United Nations, in partnership with Unicef, the Special Representative on Violence Against Children and the office for the High Commission of Human Rights, launched a campaign called Zero Under 18, which seeks to end the recruitment and use of child solders. • The organization’s goal is to achieve universal ratification of the Optional Protocol by the year 2012. This Optional Protocol is to enforce among all nations that no child under the age of 18 can participate in hostilities; no child can be forced to serve the national military or irregular armies; and that former child solders will be assisted by governments in finding a new existence after a life of violence, distress and alienation. • Universal ratification means that the world has succeeded in standing together by publicly declaring the end of this inhumane occurrence.

Respect Is The Name Of The Game By Tresa Erickson

Upon mention of the word “etiquette,” dining might be the first subject to come to mind. You might envision a group of people using a wide range of utensils as they converse over a seven-course meal, or a mother reminding her young son not to eat with his mouth full. Essentially a set of rules governing behavior, etiquette applies to a

number of areas, including fishing. Whether you fish a little or a lot, there are certain rules you should follow. Here’s a refresher course on fishing etiquette, just in case you have forgotten.

Respect the Environment Keep the site where you fish as clean and undisturbed as possible. Stay on trails and take out everything you bring in, including trash and chemicals. Don’t litter or dump waste into the water. Pick up any other trash you find and dispose of it properly. The goal is to leave

the site as clean or cleaner than you found it. Do your best to achieve this, and should you see others damaging the environment, don’t be afraid to report it to authorities.

Respect Wildlife Take care not to disturb wildlife and handle fish carefully. Use eco-friendly products and practices. Try barbless hooks and molded nets to make the release of fish easier and safer. Consider using artificial lures in place of live bait. If that isn’t possible, choose native species over exotic species. Exotic bait could survive, reproduce and wreak havoc on the ecosystem. Handle fish with a damp paper towel to keep the protective layer on their gills intact, keep only what you need and release the rest properly. Respect the Law Find out what regulations are in place and follow them to the letter. Obtain a license if required. Don’t drink, especially if fishing from a boat. Use only the tackle permitted and keep only the fish allowed. Do not fudge on the rules. You could harm the environment. Should you see any illegal activity, report it immediately to authorities.

Respect Others Get permission before fishing on private lands and be courteous of everyone you come into contact with. Give anglers their space. Don’t butt in on their territory. If you are fishing from a boat, watch your speed, wake and wash. Be quiet around the water. Turn off your cell phone and radio and keep conversation to a minimum. You don’t want to spook the fish.

Be aware of the consequences of your actions and do your best to be an ethical angler. Encourage others to do the same and make the pastime better for everyone.
