It is the most easily accessible point between mountains where you can “pass” through. The pass is considered the highest point or summit at which you traverse the area. Passes have always been very important finds for pioneers moving across the country, as well as road and rail builders. The definition of a mountain pass is actually: “The location in a range of mountains of a geological formation that is lower than the surrounding peaks.” • Other terms used in North America for a pass are saddle, notch and gap. Pass and saddle are most commonly used in the West, while the East Coast tends to use the terms notch and gap. • Semo La, a pass in central Tibet, at 18,258 feet (5,565 m), is considered to be the highest pass accessible by vehicles. It is a high, isolated place in the Chang Tang region of Tibet. Also in Tibet is the highest mountain pass accessible by train. The Tanggula Pass in the mountains of the same name has a rail station at 16,640 feet (5,072 m). By the way, “La” in Tibetan means pass.

PASTA PARTICULARS

Since pasta is one of the world’s favorite foods, it’s worth a look into some of its history, ingredients and statistics. • If you’ve eaten pasta this week, you’re part of the 77 percent of Americans who eat it at least once a week. One-third of the population dines on pasta at least three times a week. If you’re an average American, you’ll eat about 20 pounds of the stuff this year. But if you’re a resident of Italy, that figure is 60 pounds! • Not surprisingly, the word “pasta” has its origin in the Italian language, and translates “paste,” meaning a combination of flour and water. High-quality pasta comes from semolina flour, which comes from durum wheat. Using softer flour will result in mushy pasta. North Dakota is the top American producer of durum wheat, 73 percent of the U.S. total. That’s enough to dish up about 13.7 billion servings of spaghetti! One bushel of wheat yields about 42 pounds of pasta. Almost two million tons of pasta is produced in the United States every year. • Not all pasta is produced from wheat flour. Some varieties are made from rice, barley, corn and beans. • Explorer Marco Polo dined on pasta in China in the courts of Kubla Khan during the 13th century. It’s believed that the Chinese were eating pasta as early as 3000 B.C. • Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing pasta to America. During his tenure as U.S. Ambassador to France, he tasted a pasta dish while visiting Naples, Italy, and enjoyed it so much, he had crates of pasta and a pastamaking machine shipped to America in 1789.

“Cool” Candles Add Warm Glow

Let’s make fire with ice! Impossible, you say? Well, it just depends on how you look at it. Follow my easy process for creating these super “cool” candles that add a warm glow to any evening. To make several medium-size candles, you’ll need: --1-pound box of paraffin wax (available in the canning section at most markets) --1 saucepan and a tin can, such as a coffee can --Candle coloring (optional) --Ice cubes crushed into medium-size chunks. Your kids may fill a gallon plastic bag about threequarters full with ice. Secure the top. Let them use

a hammer to break the ice into small chunks. --Empty and clean pint- or quart-size cardboard milk cartons with the tops cut off --A white or colored taper candle for each ice candle, 1 inch shorter than the cut carton. Trim the candle from the bottom, if necessary. An adult should fill the bottom of the saucepan with a few inches of water and place the tin can in the center. Put a chunk of paraffin inside the can along with extra candle stubs you might have around the house. Add coloring if you wish. Stir occasionally as the wax melts, keeping a constant eye on it since it is flammable. For a wick, your school-age child can place a taper candle in the middle of a milk carton and pack the ice around it. When the wax is melted, an adult should use a potholder to lift the can out of the saucepan and pour the melted wax directly into the milk carton over the ice and around the taper candle. As the wax melts the ice, you’ll hear cracking and popping! Once the wax is hard, drain off the water a time or two. Peel the carton away from the candle and enjoy the surprise of your work of art! The ice will have formed interesting pockets, like a chunk of Swiss cheese. To use, set it on a plate and surround it with marbles. When you light the candle, give your preschooler the job of saying “Ta-da!” as you stand around proudly watching the creation flicker on a winter’s night. Note: An adult should always be present when burning candles. ••• Donna Erickson’s award-winning series “Donna’s Day” is airing on public television nationwide.

RIDE GUIDE Jimmie Johnson Still Chomping at the Bit Tony Stewart won his third championship in 2011, and no one has ever been more spectacular down the stretch. He won five of the final 10 races, the most ever since the Chase was implemented in 2004, and yet still won only by tie-breaker over Carl Edwards, who had the same number (2,403) of points. Edwards has finished second or third three times now and has the best average finish, 4.9, of any driver in Chase history. So who is the favorite for 2012? It's obvious, even After his streak of Sprint Cup championships was broken this year by Tony Stewart, Hendrick though it's neither Stewart nor Edwards.

It wasn't a championship season, but it wasn't bad, at least not by any standards other than those established by Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports crew chief, Chad Knaus. "Highly motivated" was the way Johnson referred to himself at the Sprint Cup Awards Ceremonies in Las Vegas. "Motivation comes easy for all of us," he said. "I know that question is asked a lot, but we just want to race, and if we're going to spend all the time to do all this, we want to be racing for the championship." Johnson won five straight championships. Only Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt have ever won more than five total. Can Johnson win eight and break the record? "I want to believe in it," he said. "How long I can race into my career? I think there is a chance, I don't know how COUPON realistic that chance is, but I want to believe in it and think that I can."

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

Shoveling Snow Is Hard on Heart DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is 73. I am sure he's going to die this winter. He insists on shoveling our snow, and we have lots of it. He says it's good for him; it gives him exercise. This from a man whose other exercise consists of popping open a beer can. He comes in after he's cleared the walk, puffing and exhausted. Please talk some sense into him. -- M.L. ANSWER: After every snowstorm, city emergency rooms fill with older men who have had a heart attack after cleaning their snow-covered walks. Snow shoveling is strenuous exercise. It burns 420 calories an hour. The heart rate of a shoveler rises to 170 beats a minute, and the systolic blood pressure (the first number of a reading) exceeds 200. Of course, the demand depends on the depth and weight of the snow. Older hearts cannot support such stress. In addition to the work of shoveling, cold weather adds more demands on the heart. Unless a man your husband's age has had medical clearance for such exhausting exercise, he is tempting fate. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: A friend has a case of constant hiccups. Can you suggest any possible cures? -- P.W. ANSWER: Hiccups come from involuntary contractions of the diaphragm, the horizontal muscle sheet that lies between the chest and the abdomen. It is the principal breathing muscle. Sometimes persistent contractions can be traced to gallbladder problems, diseases of the pancreas, reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus (heartburn) or an abscess on the abdominal side of the diaphragm. However, most of the time, no cause is found. For temporary hiccups, gulping food and simultaneously swallowing air sometimes

brings them on. So can carbonated beverages. Through the years readers have provided me with hundreds of home remedies for dealing with hiccups, and I welcome new additions. Swallowing a teaspoon of sugar irritates the throat, which sets in motion a reflex that can end hiccups. Breathing into a paper bag raises the blood carbon-dioxide level, which, in turn, raises blood acidity, and that triggers a release of calcium. Calcium can spark nerve signals to stop hiccups. Putting angostura bitters on the back of the tongue is another sometimes-successful trick. Hiccups that last longer than 48 hours aren't likely to respond to home remedies. Medicines have to be turned to. Chlorpromazine, omeprazole, metoclopramide and baclofen are often successfully used. In cases that are resistant to medicine treatment and that are disrupting a person's life, doctors can interrupt, in a number of ways, the transmission of nerve signals conducted to the diaphragm by the phrenic nerve. •••
