Energy and the projection of force is a vital component of the martial arts. The source of this power is breath control or more accurately, breathing in a purposeful way. Often called Ki [Japanese] or Chi [Chinese] breathing, the idea is to control the length of time necessary for one complete breath cycle. An example would be: inhale to a mental count of six, hold for two, and exhale for a mental count of eight. Because the bell shaped diaphragm flattens on the inhale and automatically returns to its original shape on the exhale, the

inhale requires more effort. This explains why we are able to control the longer exhale. In our western culture, fighters and the military use the term “combat breathing” to describe methods of breath control. In the study of Tai-Chi, Chi means energy or breath. A related discipline, Qi [Chi] Gong means energy or breath work. The methods of breath control during these exercises energize the body and focus the mind. The study of Aikido [the way of harmonious energy] likewise emphasizes breath control to enhance the application of techniques. Ai-

kido power emanates from one’s center which is connected to proper breathing. Karate practitioners use breath control techniques to magnify the power of their strikes. Board or brick breaking would be difficult without that skill. Breathing is an involuntary body function. That means that even if you held your breath until you passed out, your body would automatically resume breathing on its’ own. Because we do not give much thought to how we breathe, we may not realize the potential for generating powerful energy by developing controlled

On March 20, the Golden Goose Thrift Shop will celebrate its first anniversary at the new location at 15970 North Oracle Road in Catalina.

The manager of the Golden Goose, Stephanie Urdiales, said that the original logo for the shop was created by Ann Leonard and there were a dozen people that “hatched the Golden Goose.” The

QV Quilt exhibit event a treat for the eyes and opportunity to support community service projects By Cindy Tracy Love quilts or just love attractive textiles and artwork that are a visual feast to enjoy and to treasure the time you spend viewing them? Then definitely there is an event of interest for you in early March in the lovely little community of Queen Valley. QV is easy to find if you are driving west on U.S. 60 from Superior towards Phoenix, turn right at North Queen Valley Road and follow the main road until you see the town. Village-like in its attractive residences dotted on gently sloping hills, and its pleasant lifestyle amenities, including a lush green golf course that anchors and centers this quiet hamlet, QV on March 5 is the place to be for quilt lovers. It is also the place to be for anyone who just likes art and/or having a good time on a nice early spring Saturday. March 5 is when the 9th Annual Queen Valley Scrap Rats Quilt Show takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the HOA Queen Valley Recreation Hall on the town’s main street. Displayed will be more than 100 quilted pieces. These include heirloom, traditional, art and wearable items. The Queen Valley Scrap Rats became a Chapter of the Arizona Quilt Guild in 2003, according to Patty Friesz, QV Scrap Rats Publicity Chair. “The charter members held their first quilt show that year and had such a good response from the community that we have continued to put on a show for nine years,” she said. “We have been holding this show to educate the public about quilting, to share the quilting talents of our community and to support our adopted community service projects.” Linda McDermott is this year’s Featured Quilter at the event. There will

also be special displays of vintage quilts and quilted Christmas items and two charity groups’ quilts. The Scrap Rats have collectively designed and made a queen size “Opportunity Quilt.” The proceeds from this year’s quilt raffle will help support the Queen Valley Fire Auxiliary and other

community service projects. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.A “Quilt Boutique Shop” at the event will include hand dyed fabrics by John Read. The winner of the Opportunity Quilt will be drawn at 5 o’clock and the quilt winners of Viewer Choice Awards will also be announced at that time.

Tickets are $2 each with children under 12 admitted

free. For more information, call Patty Friesz at 480-203-

2928 or Norma Kanzig at 463-2089.

Picnics, wikiups, food, history and more in store for you By John Hernandez Eating food outdoors has been going on since man and woman first walked upon the earth. There is something special about eating with friends under an open sky, next to a lake or river, on a beach or on top of a mountain that makes us feel good. What was once a way of life for prehistoric man as he hunted and gathered food is now a luxury or special treat for us on weekends or holidays. It has even been given a special name. We call it a picnic. Webster’s Dictionary defines picnic as “a short trip for an outdoor meal.” Many of us in the Tri-Community and San Pedro Valley have

our favorite spots where we have enjoyed picnics. Places along the banks of the San Pedro River, Canyon del Oro, Tucson Wash, Copper Creek, the Gila River, and many more places in the area have been the sites of many an outdoor meal. One of our more popularly used spots is named after a food related item and has an interesting history. Peppersauce Canyon got its name from a bottle of pepper sauce. Although it is not known for sure exactly what the brand name of the pepper sauce was, there is a good chance it was a bottle of Tabasco pepper sauce made by McIlhenny Company – the same Tabasco sauce that

Beth,

you will find in many restaurants around the country and that you have probably had on your table at one time. The history of Tabasco sauce begins in New Orleans, Louisiana. An American soldier returning from the Mexican War gave Edmund McIlhenny, a New Orleans banker, some dried peppers that he had brought from Mexico. Edmund sampled the peppers and liked them. He saved the remaining seeds and planted them in his wife’s garden at Avery Island. In 1863 during the Civil War, McIlhenny and his wife fled New Orleans and sought refuge at Avery Island where Edmund’s wife’s family owned a salt min-

ing business. Avery Island was then invaded by the Union Army because of the salt located there. Once again the McIlhennys fled, this time to Texas. After the war, they returned to Avery Island. Their plantation had been ruined and their mansion looted. All that remained was the capsicum hot peppers in the garden. In 1868 McIlhenny produced a spicy sauce using the peppers, salt from Avery Island and vinegar. After aging the sauce in wooden barrels, he packaged the sauce in 350 used cologne bottles. He sent out the bottles of sauce as samples to grocery wholesalers around the area. From there the pepper sauce

spread throughout the United States and Europe. It is now sold worldwide. There are a few stories about how Peppersauce Canyon got its name. They all involve miners and a “lost” or stolen bottle of pepper sauce. One story says that around 1880 a prospector named Alex McKay camped in the area now known as Peppersauce Canyon. McKay reported that his bottle of pepper sauce came up missing. Another story says that Louis Depew paused for lunch while traveling along the welltraveled trail between Oracle and the Apache Mine Camp. After lunch he continued on his journey to the mine. Upon arrival, he

realized he had left the bottle in the wash. His companions at the mine joked about it and named the wash. Ben Patten a long time ranch hand in Oracle told the Oracle Historical Society the following story: “Peppersauce Canyon got its name from Andy and Henry Apple. The two miners were locating claims and had made camp for the night. A great monsoon washed through the canyon. When all was said and done, all that had been lost was their bottle of pepper sauce.” You can find out more about the history of Peppersauce and the part food has played in the history of Oracle and the San Pedro Valley when the Smithsonian Exhibition: Key Ingredients: America by Food comes to the Acadia Ranch Museum in Oracle. Key Ingredients is a collaboration between the Smithsonian and the Arizona Humanities Council. The Oracle Historical Society’s Acadia Ranch Museum was one of six sites in Arizona chosen for the exhibit. Key Ingredients explores the ways in which history, tradition and cultures have shaped how America enjoys food. “Let’s Have a Picnic!” is an exhibit on local outdoor eating food traditions during pioneer days. It covers outdoor eating from the Apache Wikiups to early Mexican homesteads to the areas first health hotels and dude ranches. Local history writer Catherine Ellis and architectural designer Chuck Sternberg are curators for the exhibit. They have designed an exhibit that will include archival photographs, recipes, letters, oral histories and artifacts. Chuck is also the current President of the Oracle Historical Society. Catherine Ellis has written Arizona history books including Oracle and the San Pedro Valley, Snowflake, Holbrook and the Petrified Forest, and The White Mountains and Apache County. This local exhibit is one of a number of fun and interesting exhibits and activities planned for Key Ingredients. Key Ingredients will be in Oracle from March 19 - May 1, 2011.

Hutchins Consort to perform Feb. 25 in Gold Canyon The Gold Canyon Arts Council will present the Hutchings Consort Violinists on Friday, Feb. 25, at 7:30 p.m. Eight scaled violins create an acoustically balanced set of instruments that stretch the violin sound across the entire range of written music. With instruments ranging from the tiny treble

violin, tuned one octave above the standard violin, to the gigantic large bass violin, tuned one octave lower than a cello, the Hutchins Consort produces an astonishing palette of sounds. The instruments of the violin octet were designed and built by famed luthier Dr. Carleen Hutchins. They

represent the first successful attempt to create this amazing feat of the musical world. Based in Southern California, the Hutchins Consort brings together a group of extraordinary virtuosi to tackle the challenge of adapting the techniques of traditional strings, as well as inventing new techniques, to master

these unique instruments. The Hutchins Consort plays music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods to the music of the modern masters including original compositions and transcriptions commissioned by the Catgut Acoustical Society for the octet of violins, and new transcriptions by members of the Consort. The Hutchins Consort displays a breadth and depth of music capability that few traditional groups match while producing a truly unique sound.

Tickets are available at the door at $25 for adults and $5 for students through high school. Purchase advance adult tickets for this and future Canyon Sounds concerts at the Council’s Ticket and Information Office located at Canyon Rose Storage, 6405 S. Kings Ranch Road, Gold Canyon, or at the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce office on the Apache Trail and receive a $5 discount.

Globe to host annual Historic Home and Building Tour March 5 and 6 The 27th annual Historic Home and Building Tour is planned March 5-6, 2011 in Globe. The event is sponsored by the GlobeMiami Regional Chamber of Commerce. The tour features stops at several territorial-day homes and historic buildings in Globe, along with visits to the antique show and the Smithsonian museum exhibit “Key Ingredients.” There are several changes in this year’s event, starting with a March date rather than the usual February date. Also, this year’s tour will leave from the old

jail in downtown Globe as there is an event scheduled at the train depot the same weekend. One of the highlights of this year’s tour will be the newly-renovated Chrysocolla Inn, formerly known as the Oakwood Manor. Four years ago, the building was featured when renovation had first begun.

homes on Railroad Court, and a housing area built for railroad employees in early-day Globe. The huge trees alone will tell visitors they are in an established neighborhood, and the homes will be a delight to visitors. The Odd Fellows Hall in downtown Globe will be part of the tour. This magnificent building is one of the earliest fraternal halls in the state and gives visitors a great feel for how fraternal organizations fit into the social fabric of early day Arizona. These are just a few of the buildings planned for this year’s tour. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under. Courtesy of the many volunteers who staff this tour, visitors will be driven to each stop, where they are invited to hear from hosts and hostesses about the history

of that particular stop. The Gila County Historical Society will have its annual antique show both days at the Copper Rim School. The museum will be open as well for the Smithsonian Institute “Key Ingredients” exhibit. The Copper Country Quilters Guild

will have guild members on hand to show the special quilts on display at their annual Pieces of friendship show at the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts; and while you’re there, try and visualize how lovely the opportunity quilt will look in your home…then buy a

ticket! The Globe - Miami Chamber of Commerce sponsors the annual Home Tour. For more information, call 928-425-4495 or tollfree 800-804-5623. More information is available at the chamber website, www. globemiamichamber.com.

If you haven’t been to Oracle Historical Society’s Acadia Ranch Museum lately, be ready to enjoy its refreshed new look when you visit the Smithsonian’s “Key Ingredients” exhibit from March 19 through May 1. The exhibit is sponsored by the Arizona Humanities Council.

With the intensive efforts of Chuck Sternberg, architectural preservationist and designer, Kevin Armbrust, and many other Oracle volunteers, the society has undertaken major renovations that go way beyond simple paint, fix, and polish. Chuck, who also serves as president of OHS, is

tireless in his enthusiasm and energy for creating the perfect setting for museum treasurers. Most recently, the kitchen and adjoining dining area have been completely restored and the porch trim repaired and repainted to match the original historic forest green. These upgrades followed the 2009 renovation of the great room along with refinish and refurbishment of the original fir-wood floor. Generally unseen, but enormously important as well, the collections storage facility has been updated so that the ongoing work of reorganizing archives and collections can continue. Museum visitors can view the lively traveling Smithsonian exhibit and local companion exhibits free of charge. The grand opening festival with homemade tamales and other family recipes, as well as many of the community events scheduled in conjunction with the exhibit, are also free. But free isn’t cheap. Although the museum continues to pursue grants to assist its efforts, it costs money to write grants, oversee projects, and to cover operating and administrative expenses. “As an after-effect of the Smithsonian exhibit, we would love to see a boost in community financial support especially in terms of new or renewed OHS memberships,” Chuck said, “but also generous donations for growth and outreach.”

Clay Bread-Oven Workshop set for Triangle L Ranch in Oracle A rare workshop opportunity, “How to Make a Backyard Clay Oven,” is among the community events scheduled while the Smithsonian traveling exhibit “Key Ingredients: America by Food” is on display at Oracle Historical Society. The hands-on workshop is set for Sunday, April 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Triangle L Ranch in Oracle. Sharon Holnback will teach the techniques she learned at an intensive class in Oregon with Kiko Denzer, whose classic book Build Your Own Earth Oven is now in its third printing.

Participants will work under a ranch ramada, laying fire bricks for the oven’s floor, then mixing the “mud” (wet sand and clay from a nearby wash) with their bare feet. The group will build a full-size dome-shaped oven measuring about four feet deep with 4-5 inch thick walls. Sharon will provide information on burning wood in the oven, removing the embers, and placing various foods inside to bake/cook in the retained heat that’s released from the dense clay walls. Participants will leave with practical know-how to build their own backyard clay oven and use it for baking

breads in the artisan style, baking pizza, cooking meats, and drying foods. The workshop is limited to 12 people; a $10 materials fee will be charged. Reservations must be made in advance at 520-896-2123. The earth bread oven, also called a horno in Spanishspeaking parts of the world, dates back at least 10,000 years to the Middle East. Sometimes built with adobe bricks, or cob, or other natural materials, it is considered the cheapest, most local, most efficient and durable oven possible.

How do you teach a college hiking class? Teaching a college-level hiking class isn’t as easy as it sounds. I mean, this is an official Health and Physical Education (HPE) class and being on the advanced level of post high school you don’t just go out and teach people how to walk without tripping over their own feet. Or each other. Or anything else. No, it involves a lot more academic stuff. Like tests. When I first started a couple of years ago, I was told it is a pre-test/post-test; that is, you give it at the beginning of the semester, then again at the end as a final exam and compare the scores to see how much the students improved. Well, we talked about it and my department head agreed:

there are a few things I want the students to know before we take to the trails, especialZache Talk ly in the b e g i n - by Bob Zache ning class for any inexperienced hikers. So I use the test as a learning tool. And everybody aces it the first time around because it is essential they know some of the things. Then we continue to discuss some of them during the course of the semester. I have two classes which meet alternate Saturday morn-

KIDS COME FIRST

ings: beginning and advanced hiking, or as I call them in the course descriptions I’m writing for next semester, Urban Hiking and Mountain Hiking. One consists of relatively short and easy hikes in and around town, four or five miles. The Mountain Hiking involves more difficult, longer hikes on mountain trails. Quite a few people are signed up for both classes so they can hike every Saturday morning. So what do you put in a test on hiking? Here’s a sample: 1. If you come upon a snake in the trail, it is best to: A. Find a long stick and carefully move it from the trail and continue. B. Scream a warning to others and run in the opposite direction. C. Find a big rock and kill it. D. Carefully make your way around it and continue on your hike.

2. As the human body becomes more conditioned: A. The sweat glands enlarge and increase in number so you sweat more. B. You become acclimated and sweat less. C. Your muscles become firmer and eventually you will experience no pain at all. D. Your lungs absorb oxygen more efficiently and you breathe better under stress. 3. A Trip Control Plan (TCP) is: A. A detailed description of your hike, including departure and return times and route description, filed with the proper authorities. B. A brief description of where you’ll be and when you expect to return. C. Letting someone know you’ll be hiking in the Pinals somewhere. D. Trip Control Plans are not necessary most of the time. 4.

Hiking means: A. Walking only on established trails on public land within the National Forest. B. Avoiding rough, rocky ledges where a fall could occur. C. Exploring new trails, even if you’ve never hiked them before and you haven’t filed a Trip Control Plan. D. Pushing yourself to hike longer, tougher trails just to see what’s there. 5. If you are hiking downhill on a narrow mountain trail and encounter hikers coming up, you should: A. Comment on the weather or trail conditions and during the conversation, observe them to assess their physical condition. B. Admire the neat walking stick they’re carrying. C. Step aside and let the uphill hikers have the rightof-way. D. Keep walking and mind your own business. 6. If you become lost in the mountains, the proper procedure is to A. Hike downhill because eventually you will come to water. B. Fire three shots in the air to signal for help. C. Gather firewood and prepare to spend the night. D. Hike to the nearest high point so you can see more landmarks. 7. On a mountain hike, when coming upon fresh bear sign, you should: A. Walk quietly and carefully so as not to excite any bears that may be nearby.

B. Scream a warning and run in the opposite direction. C. Find a big stick to defend yourself with. D. Keep walking and make plenty of noise to scare the bear away. 8. Hiking with one or more companions is a good idea because: A. There’s safety in numbers. B. It’s more fun with company. C. Somebody can help carry your bags if you stop to go shopping. D. At least one person’s cell phone is bound to be working. OK, that’s eight questions; each of the classes has 20 questions on the test so this is just a sampling, but you get the idea. And I’m re-writing them in a different format to conform to school requirements. As a teaching tool, the tests provide an opportunity to discuss situations a hiker might encounter -- before we get out on the trail – or sidewalk. The answers? Some of them depend on the situation so there might be more than one right answer, but in general: 1.-D. 2.–A & D. 3.–B. 4.D. 5.-C. 6.-C (maybe). 7.-D. 8.-A&B. OK. Ready to start hiking? Phone Gila Community College at 928-425-8481 to register. The hiking part is easy. It’s these tests that are hard.
