PIRATES (continued):

• Pirates pierced their ears, not to look suave, but because it was believed that piercing the ears with such precious metals as silver and gold improved one’s eyesight. Even relatively respectable seafaring men indulged in the practice. • “Davy Jones’ Locker” is a real nautical term that dates back to the 1700s and refers to the bottom of the ocean and a graveyard for drowned sailors. • As early as 1611, there are written accounts describing a person who brings bad luck to a ship as a “Jonah.” If a man was marked as a Jonah, he was doomed to be thrown overboard. If the trouble persisted, the pirates might suspect they’d thrown the wrong man overboard and would sometimes toss the original accuser into the sea to appease the ghost of the innocent man.

3rd Quarter 2010 preferred knives to knitting needles. Two 39 most famous female pirates are of Week history’s

• Every pirate ship had its Code of Conduct specified by the pirate captain. While stealing was the pirate’s job, stealing amongst shipmates was severely punished. Some boats had a “zero tolerance” policy for internal theft that left you dead or marooned if caught. • No one has actually ever found a real pirate’s buried treasure map. Never too far from death, most pirates tried to enjoy their money quickly. At any rate, there aren’t any maps around today, unless some are still cleverly hidden. • Throughout history some women have preferred knives to knitting needles. Two of history’s most famous female pirates are Anne Bonny, born in Ireland, and Mary Read, born in England. Not wanting to live the subservient life expected of women during her day, Bonny won over the respect of her pirate crewmembers with her murderous and capable ways. She eventually became best friends with Wine and Appetizers her fellow fierce, female pirate, Read.

Not wanting to live the Page 2 subservient life expected of women during her day, Bonny won over the respect of her pirate crewmembers with her murderous and capable ways. She eventually became best friends with (continued): her fellowPIRATES fierce, female pirate, Read. As members of Captain “Calico” Jack Rackham’s crew, Bonny and Read disguised themselves as men and earned reputations as tough, fearless fighters. When Rackham and his crew were captured and sentenced to hang, Bonny, the captain’s girlfriend, reportedly told him: “Had you fought like a man, you need not have been hanged like a dog.” The exact origin of Jolly Roger, the generic term for a pirate flag, is unknown. It may come from “Old Roger,” an English term for the devil, or from a corrupted version of the French “Jolie Rouge,” meaning “pretty red.” Pirate ships didn’t fly Jolly Rogers at all times; instead, they’d often fly fake flags until their victims or enemies came into view. Pirate ships flew Jolly Roger flags featuring motifs intended to intimidate, including skulls, crossbones, swords, skeletons, bleeding hearts and hourglasses, meant to symbolize that time was running out. Port Royal, Jamaica, once known as the “wickedest city on earth” and as a wealthy haven for pirates, was devastated by an earthquake on June 7, 1692. Much of the thriving, densely populated community was destroyed. Port Royal was rebuilt and served as a British naval station in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, it is a small fishing town and tourist destination. “Treasure Island” by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson was first published serially in a children’s magazine between 1881 and 1882, under the title “The Sea-Cook.” It was published as a book in 1883. One of the main characters, the pirate Long John Silver, is nicknamed the Sea Cook. Silver, who is missing one leg, was reportedly inspired by a writer-editor friend of Stevenson’s who had lost a leg to disease.

(continued): PIRATES • The “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride opened at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, in 1967. It was reportedly the last attraction that Walt Disney (1901-1966) had a hand in planning before he died. • The Caribbean Sea gets its name from the Caribs, one of the main Native American Indian groups in the region when Spanish explorers arrived in the 15th century. The Caribs were known as fierce fighters and practitioners of cannibalism. Although largely eliminated by the Europeans in the 17th century, some Caribs survive today in Guatemala and Dominica. • The pirate Blackbeard cultivated an intimidating image and put cannon fuses under his hat to scare people. Blackbeard died in a battle with British navy lieutenant Robert Maynard off the North Carolina coast in 1718. • In pirate language, “shiver me timbers” was used to express strong feelings or surprise. • The term buccaneer is derived from “boucanier” and “boucan,” a French term for the smoking process used by hunters on the island of Hispaniola to prepare meat. Driven out by the Spanish, these buccaneers joined others who had an axe to grind with the Spaniards and attacked their ships. By the 17th century, the term was used generically to refer to pirates and privateers throughout the West Indies. • Welsh buccaneer Sir Henry Morgan served as the inspiration for novelist John Steinbeck’s first novel, “Cup of Gold.” When it was originally published in 1929, the book attracted little attention. Ten years later, Steinbeck published “The Grapes of Wrath,” which won the Pulitzer Prize.

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.

turb 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.

September 16 - September 22, 2010

fore 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.

Respect Others Respect the Environment Get permission beKeep the site where you fish as clean and undisturbed as possible.

CASTLES

When you think of something large, strong and majestic, you might be thinking about a castle. This type of fortress was built in multiple places and in multiple styles throughout history.

3rd Quarter 2010 Week 39 Sept 19- 25 Page 7

• Castles were built to withstand attack from enemies. Castle builders added many defensive features to make their castles difficult to attack. Many castles were built on high ground with clear views of the surrounding land. • Castles with curtain walls with flanking towers were difficult to capture. These towers allowed well-protected defenders to fire at attackers along the line of the castle walls, concentrating fire on particular points of heavy attack. A good early example of a castle with flanking towers is Framlingham in Suffolk, England. Along the curtain wall, at intervals, are 13 square or rectangular towers. • At the top of the castle walls were battlements, a protective, tooth-shaped parapet with a wall walk behind it for the soldiers to stand on. The defenders could fire missiles through gaps. The raised sections between are called merlons, which helped to shelter the defenders during an enemy attack. • Castles in the round: It was harder for attackers to make round towers collapse. Unlike square towers, they had no corners, which collapsed if holes were dug underneath the foundations. • European castles had their origins dating back to around AD 900 and played a great role in the then military system of feudalism. • The great age of castles began almost 1,000 years ago and lasted for nearly 500 years. The first proper castles built in England were built after the Norman Conquest in 1066. They were introduced by William the Conqueror, when he invaded England from his homeland in France.

Writing a Solid Resume If you've revamped your resume for job hunting, chances are you've tinkered with it so much that you can no longer see it clearly. Here are some thoughts and ideas to consider before you send it out. In many cases, you'll have only about eight seconds to grab someone's attention. There are two formats to consider in writing a resume: chronological versus functional. In one, you describe your past jobs starting with the most recent and then work backward. In the other, you organize your skills. Which one you use is up to you and can depend on the type of position you're seeking. In some cases a combination will work best. Depending on the jobs you're

applying for, you might need multiple resumes. In some, you might want to leave off that you have a Ph.D. and speak multiple languages. In others those qualifications could be important. Many resume services advise starting with a statement of your objective: What kind of job are you looking for? If there are certain keywords for your industry, use those. It might be a machine that scans your resume. If you're just beginning to do your resume and you're at a loss about where to start, look at samples online. Even if you're able to hire someone to do the work, having an idea in advance about the finished product might well reduce your cost of having the resume prepared. If you've been out of work and don't know how to account for that period of time, don't fudge the truth. Ideally you'll have some volunteer experiences to list. If you're currently working

and feel that your job is secure, great! But take the time to write down the things you've accomplished in your current job, as well as the ones you've had before. If the worst should happen and you're handed a pink slip, having that information already written down will be a big help when you'll likely be worrying about multiple issues. For in-depth information on writing your resume, go to www.resume-help.org. Also see www.jobsearch.about.com. Above all, edit, check and reread, even if a professional does the work for you. Don't let a resume go out with a single misspelled word or wrong date. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
