TIDBITS® TAKES A LOOK AT

SCHOOLS

by Rick Dandes With the hazy, crazy early days of August approaching, can school be far away? Sorry kids, but this is the time of year when your parents are already starting to think about sending you back to class, whether it’s college, elementary school or high school. So to make it a little easier on you all, Tidbits makes the grade this week with trivia about all kinds of schools. Enjoy. • Did you know that the prestigious schools of the Ivy League were mostly founded before the Revolutionary War and funded by lotteries? It’s true. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Kings College (Columbia), Dartmouth and Brown Universities were all partially funded, back in the 1700s, by private lotteries. • The oldest university _in Canada is generally thought to be the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, founded in 1785_as the Provincial Academy of Arts and Sciences.

• For those who wonder why it’s Johns Hopkins University (in Baltimore, Maryland) instead of John Hopkins, the explanation goes way back to the founder of the school. Johns Hopkins (17951873) was named after his great-grandmother, Margaret Johns Hopkins. Hopkins was a lifelong bachelor, and when he died, he left most of a huge fortune to found the University and Medical School that now have his name. turn the page for more!

SCHOOLS (continued): • During the 18th and early 19th centuries, Canadian families remained the unrivalled setting for education in that country; few children in what was then British North America received formal instruction either from tutors or in schools.

• Although Thomas Jefferson had supported the concept of free public education, elementary schooling was only available to America’s wealthy until the 1840s. That’s when reformers like Horace Mann of Massachusetts and Henry Barnard of Connecticut began to push for taxfunded schools with the belief that universal education would produce good citizens, unite society, prevent crime and end poverty.

• Until the 1930s, most Americans only completed eight years of school. High School only became popular during the Great Depression, when job-strapped communities saw benefits to keeping teenagers in class and out of the workforce where they’d only serve as low-cost competition to adults. • Founded in 1878 by Bishop Isaac Hellmuth and the Anglican Diocese of Huron, the University of Western Ontario is one of Canada’s oldest and best universities. The first students graduated in arts and medicine in 1883. • Remember James Meredith? The University of Mississippi gained national attention when it denied admission to James Meredith, an African American, who applied in 1961. He took the case to court, won, and started classes at Ole Miss in 1963. What many people don’t know is that he successfully graduated in 1964 and has been a supporter of Ole Miss ever since.

Brookings’ New Classic Hits station is your station for great rock & roll classics from the mid-60’s to the late 80’s. For Less Talk & More Rock

• 74.9 million: That’s the number of people enrolled in school throughout the United States — from nursery school to college. To put this in perspective, this amounts to more than onefourth of the U.S. population age 3 and older.

SCHOOLS (continued): • Of the approximately 7.2 million teachers in the United States, 2.9 million work at elementary and middle school levels. On average, median annual wages of kindergarten, elementary, middle, and secondary school teachers ranged from $47,100 to $51,180 in May 2008; the lowest 10 percent earned $30,970 to $34,280; the top 10 percent earned $75,190 to $80,970. The average hourly wage for other school workers? Bus drivers earn $16.56 an hour, custodians earn $14.19 an hour, and cafeteria workers earn about $11.60 an hour. • The average number of children participating each month in the United States’ national school lunch program in 2009 was 31.3 million. That’s a lot of milk. • America’s total apple production estimate in 2009 was 20.11 billion pounds, up four percent from 2007. The chances are good that the apples your children present to their teachers or enjoy for lunch were grown in Washington State, which accounts for more than half of the nation’s total production. • In fall 2009, a record of nearly 49.8 million students will attend public elementary and secondary schools in America. Of these, almost 35.0 million will be in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade and 14.8 million in grades 9 through 12. An additional 5.8 million students are expected to attend private schools this coming fall. • The per-pupil expenditure on public elementary and secondary education for the United States in 2007 was almost $10,000. New York spent the most among states or state equivalents ($15,981), followed by New Jersey ($15,691) and the District of Columbia ($14,324). Utah ($5,683) spent the least per student, on average. www.facebook.com/dakotabits

to family members, employers can make it easier for workers to manage care giving responsibilities and remain productive on the job.

The Business Concern: Long Term Care Insurance as a Benefit By Armin A. Hinkelman

At home and in the workforce, long-term care is emerging as one of the critical issues of our time, and employers have a key role to play through education. Dealing with long-term care needs can be an emotionally and financially significant life event. Almost a quarter of U.S. households Ð 22 million Ð are already involved in caring for a relative or friend who is 50 or older, according to the non-profit National Alliance for Caregiving (“A federal case for LTC.” Employee Benefit News. 01/01/03). These individuals, if currently working, may have little time available for specialized care giving, and the additional responsibility. Hidden impacts of care giving responsibilities could have an impact in the workplace also, due to emergencies and phone calls, absenteeism, adjusted schedules, increased need for time off, decreased willingness to relocate and travel, and increased stress, which often may lead to employee health-related problems and fatigue. Long-term care insurance is one of the newest employee benefits being made available to employees by businesses to attract and retain top performers, and is a valuable addition to any benefits portfolio. Benefits can be offered selectively. Employers may also determine different premium contribution levels for different groups of employees, either employee pay all, on a cost-shared basis and/or employer pay all. By extending coverage

Tax-qualified long-term care insurance occupies a special place in the tax code. When an employer pays for coverage for employees, either for a selected group or for all, the employer might be able to deduct the premium payments. This is a plan that can be customized to fit an employer’s specific criteria, and it might offer a tax deduction for the employer without creating additional taxable income for the employee. Business owners should consult a tax professional for information related to their particular situation. For more information on the potential benefits of long-term care insurance for your company and your employees, please contact Armin Hinkelman at (605) 882-3591. Armin Hinkelman, ChFC, CLU, RHU, LUTCF is a licensed long term care insurance agent with an office in Watertown, SD. He may be reached at (605) 882-3591.The tax information in this material was written to support the promotion and marketing of the contract.

By Samantha Weaver

• It was British mathematician, historian and philosopher Bertrand Russell who made the following sage observation: "If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years." • Do you know why camels are artiodactyls, while humans aren't? It's because dromedaries have an even number of toes (two) on each foot, while we have an odd number. • According to a poll conducted in the United Kingdom, 80 percent of male college freshmen and sophomores in that country have never done a load of laundry in their lives. • At weddings here in the United States, it is common for the bride to toss her bouquet to determine who will be the next to be married. At weddings in Finland the custom is a bit different, though the outcome is the same: There, the bride traditionally wears a golden crown, and at the reception she is blindfolded and spun around. Then all the single girls in attendance dance around her while the bride, still blindfolded, tries to place the crown on one of them. It's believed that the lucky girl who ends up wearing the crown will be the next to wed. • It takes about 2.5 pounds of grapes to make a single bottle of wine. • Ever wonder where the phrase "cool as a cucumber" came from? It's actually an established fact that the interior of a cucumber can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the ambient air temperature surrounding it.

MUSIC LEGEND: BOB DYLAN Born Robert Allen Zimmerman, Bob Dylan is perhaps the best known and best loved of all American singer-songwriters.

3rd Quarter 2010 Week 31 July 25 - 31 Page 5

• Robert Allen Zimmerman’s birth date is thought to be May 24, 1941. But a passport issued to Robert Dylan in 1974 says his birth date is May 11, 1941. So which is it Bob? • Dylan was scheduled to appear on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on May 12, 1963. He was going to sing “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues.” But during the dress rehearsal, he was told that “John Birch” was deemed too controversial by network censors, and program producer Bob Precht, whose idea it was to invite Dylan on the show, asked him to sing another song. Dylan declined and did not appear. • In August 1969, Dylan made his first paid public performance since July 26, 1966, when he broke his neck in the crash of his Triumph 500 motorcycle. Backed by the Band, he performed in front of 200,000 people at England’s Isle of Wight festival. He was paid $75,000 for a 70-minute performance. • In 1967, while recuperating from his motorcycle accident, Dylan signed with MGM Records, home of the Righteous Brothers, the Lovin’ Spoonful, Connie Francis and the late Hank Williams. MGM withdrew the contract, and Dylan signed with Columbia. • Dylan won his first Grammy in 1980 for best rock vocal performance for the religiousoriented “Gotta Serve Somebody.”

Electric Bridge Table

Q: I have an electric bridge table manufactured by the Hammond organ company sometime during the 1930s. I have tried researching it but haven’t been able to find out much. Can you help me? -- Sherry, Albuquerque, N.M. A: The Model 4H Electric Bridge Table was introduced by the Hammond Clock Company in 1932. Concealed within the table is a mechanism that automatically deals four 13-card bridge hands, all without the need to shuffle the deck. Since the device was marketed during the early years of the Great Depression and was expensive, they are extremely rare. I spoke to several experts, and they seem to agree that your table is probably worth “several thousand dollars.” To find out exactly how much, the time has come to hire a good appraiser. When hiring an appraiser, don’t hesitate to ask for references and his or her field of expertise. An appraiser who is an expert on pottery might not be all that helpful when it comes to bridge tables. ••• Q: I have a Pepsi figurine that was made in Germany. How can I establish how much it might be worth? -- Minnie, Fairport, N.Y.

Mark Martin Knows the Challenge

In 2009, Mark Martin enjoyed a glorious comeback, finishing second in the Sprint Cup standings and winning five races. And that was at age 50. Now Martin is 51, and results haven't been as encouraging this season for the Batesville, Ark., native. At the moment, Martin has to worry about making the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which is limited to the top 12 in the point standings at the end of the 26 races that comprise the regular season. The championship is then determined over the final 10. Martin knows he faces a challenge to make the Chase, and he knows pressure will increase and tempers will flare as the next seven races wind down. "As we go forward, the kind of racing that we had at the end of (recent races) will not be every three weeks in the future," he said. "It will be every week, everywhere. Right now it's every third week or so. "That's what equal cars, double-file restarts and all that stuff brings you to, which is going to be fun to watch." Though Martin has only competed once in the Nationwide Series this year, he is its alltime leader with 48 victories, though Kyle Busch is closing in and now has 37 victories, including seven this year.

"Records are going to fall, and I'm going to stand there and watch them," said Martin. "Just as Jack Ingram (31 wins) stood and watched his fall, it's not going stand the test of time, but that's OK, too. That still doesn't lessen what I did, what I managed to do." Martin's 40 Cup victories rank him 16th all-time, trailing Bill Elliott by four. Racing isn't just competitive. To Martin's way of thinking, it's rougher and more aggressive than ever. "It's getting worse mostly because of the nature of our racing and the growth of the sport," he said. "You wouldn't be able to keep a job if you raced 20 years ago, if you drove for somebody and you wrecked as many cars as you wreck today. You wouldn't keep a job. "The teams could not justify it. They didn't have the manpower. They didn't have the money. They couldn't repair these cars and get them back out there. You wouldn't last. But it's a different day and age now. It is just different, and there's a lot of pressure on these guys." ••• Monte Dutton has covered motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette since 1993.
