TIDBITS® SIZZLES AS THE HEAT IS ON! by Patricia L. Cook During the summer months in the northern hemisphere — NOW — the heat is on and many people head to beaches to enjoy the sun, sand and water. So, slather on a bit of sunscreen as you read some Tidbits about beaches! • Even land-locked areas boast beaches on their lakes and rivers, and people use those for summer fun. But the majority of beach fun happens on the coasts. The Atlantic, the Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico and, of course, Hawaii are the largest areas of coastline for North America. • States and provinces with the longest coastlines make the most of their beaches when it comes to tourism. Florida is the beach capital of the continental United States, but for those who are able to hop on an airplane for a beach, Hawaii is definitely a state to visit; after all, as a group of islands, the state is surrounded by water. • A number of beaches claim to be the “world’s longest beach.” Long Beach, Washington, has a big sign proclaiming that on its beach. However, it is only about 25 miles (40 km) long. It does have some terrific claims to fame though. It is a peninsula that sits north of where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean and is where Lewis and Clark stopped on their trek across the west in 1805. turn the page for more!

This created a puzzle. It made learning the states fun.

¥ "I love self-sticking notes to stay organized. I use them on my bathroom vanity mirror so that I can preplan my day in my head while getting ready in the morning." -- E.T. in Georgia ¥ "I purchased extra-large safety pins and used scraps of fabric to designate towels for family members. I wrote each of our names in washable ink on several 'tags,' which are then attached to our bathing towel. I can tell in an instant who has left his or her towel on the floor/bed/etc. And I am washing a lot less towels now." -- D.L. in Ohio

THE HEAT IS ON! (continued): • The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery traveled more than 4,000 miles (6,437 km) on an expedition to explore the area west of the Mississippi River. The beach area that they discovered in Washington was not a sun-filled beach. In fact, the area is known for lots of rainy days. Even so, the beach, on the southwest coast of the state, is a fun spot, with more than 60 festivals and celebrations held on the Long Beach Peninsula in 2011. It is home to the World Kite Museum and also the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. • Another West Coast community named “Long Beach” is the city of Long Beach, California, south of Los Angeles. One of its main tourist attractions is the Queen Mary, a retired ocean liner that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. • Long Beach, Mississippi, is located on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It suffered a lot of damage during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 but is still known as the “friendly city,” its moniker since incorporation in 1905. • On the Atlantic side of the country are Long Beach Island, New Jersey, known as LBI, and Long Beach, New York. Both are islands. LBI is accessible via one bridge or by boat. Long Beach, New York, is an oceanfront island at the southern end of Long Island, New York. It has a 3.5-mile (5.6 km) beach and a 2.25-mile-long boardwalk that was built in 1914 with the help of elephants!

¥ "I had a few old mouse pads that were lying around. I used embroidery floss to stitch a few together and I use them as a kneepad in the garden.

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta

Tips to Save Money on Pet-Care Costs DEAR PAW'S CORNER: It seems the cost of pet food has risen, among other things. I have to feed my cat "Barney" a special diet that includes canned food I can only get from my vet. Is there any way I can cut costs on items like this without risking Barney's health? -- May K., San Diego DEAR MAY: There are always ways to find savings in our everyday budgets as well as pet care-related costs. Talk to your veterinarian about the brand of pet food Barney has to eat -- is there a comparable product that doesn't cost so much? If you don't get a satisfactory answer, try searching for the pet food by name on the Internet. In addition to the food manufacturer's website where you may find coupons or other places where you can buy it, you may find forums where pet owners share information that could help you save money. Consumer Reports magazine recently published a series of articles on cutting pet-care costs. The report can be found in the August 2011 issue, or online at http://www.consumer-

SPONSORED BY

reports.org/cro/magazine-archive/2011/august/ money/pet-costs/overview/index.htm. Here is a brief summary of its tips: ¥ If you're buying "premium" pet food, look around for comparable products that cost less, buy in bulk at a "big box" store, or look at store brands. ¥ Concerned about veterinary costs? Shop around -- check with other vets for their service rates. ¥ The vet is no longer the only source of pet medicines: Walgreens, Giant/Eagle, Kroger and Target either have or are testing pet prescription programs. ¥ Keep up with preventive care: Schedule an annual checkup and vaccinations at the vet, and perform home health maintenance like feeding a healthy diet, brushing teeth, etc. Send your question or comment to ask@ pawscorner.com, or write to Paw's Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

THE HEAT IS ON! (continued): • Do you know which state has the longest coastline in the continental United States? It is not Florida or California as you may guess, but Michigan. Michigan’s shoreline is 3,288 miles (5,292 km) long, including 1,056 miles (1,699 km) of island coasts. • Do you know which country has the longest shoreline in the world? Canada. Canada also has an area named “Long Beach.” The Long Beach “unit” of beaches consists of Radar Beach, Long Beach, Combers Beach and Wickaninnish Beach, which run from north to south for 15.5 miles (25 km) and comprise the most popular portion of Pacific Rim National Park. This is the only national park on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, the westernmost province of Canada. It has long, sandy beaches, rocky shoreline, a rainforest and more. • Tofino, at the northern end of this Long Beach, boasts the highest annual mean temperature in Canada, 42 to 44 degrees F (6-7 degrees C), which is also the same as the water temperature. Wetsuits are needed for surfing, but despite the chilly water, the waves draw northwest surfers year round. • A truly long beach that always makes the “world’s longest” beaches lists is Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. The area is on the southeastern coast of Bangladesh and stretches for 75 miles (120 km). The country is vastly overpopulated and impoverished, with most people living in the cities. The beach is never crowded, and the humid, tropical area is shark-free! • In the lands “down under,” Australia and New Zealand both have beaches named “90 Mile Beach,” (145 km) even though neither is exactly that long!

¥ On Aug. 1, 1966, Charles Whitman takes a stockpile of guns and ammunition to the observatory platform atop a 300-foot tower at the University of Texas and proceeds to shoot 46 people, killing 14 and wounding 31. ¥ On Aug. 2, 1939, Wes Craven, the man responsible for terrorizing millions of moviegoers with his “Nightmare on Elm Street” series, is born in Cleveland. Craven began his directing career with 1972’s “The Last House on the Left,” a violent teen horror film. ¥ On Aug. 3, 1958, the U.S. nuclear submarine Nautilus accomplishes the first undersea voyage to the geographic North Pole. USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear submarine, dived at Point Barrow, Alaska, and traveled nearly 1,000 miles under the Arctic ice cap to reach the top of the world. ¥ On Aug. 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden are found hacked to death in their Fall River, Mass., home. Daughter Lizzie, later immortalized in a famous rhyme, was arrested and charged with the double homicide. Taken with her Christian persona, the all-male jury acquitted her. Today, the house where the Borden murders occurred is a bed and breakfast. ¥ On Aug. 5, 1914, the world's first electric traffic signal is put into place on the corner of Euclid Avenue and East 105th Street in Cleveland. It consisted of four pairs of red and green lights that served as stop-go indicators, each mounted on a corner post. ¥ On Aug. 6, 1928, Andy Warhol, one of the most influential artists of the latter part of the 20th century, is born in Pennsylvania. He took literally the advice of an art teacher who said he should paint the things he liked. He liked ordinary things, such as comic strips, canned soup and soft drinks, and so he painted them. ¥ On Aug. 7, 1947, Kon-Tiki, a balsa wood raft captained by Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl, completes a 4,300-mile, 101-day journey from Peru to Raroia in the Tuamotu Archipelago, near Tahiti. Heyerdahl wanted to prove his theory that prehistoric South Americans could have colonized the Polynesian islands by drifting on ocean currents. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Ninety Mile Beach Marine Park in Australia, located along Victoria’s southeast coast, is a long, thin beach that actually stretches for 94.5 miles (152 km). This park is known for having the highest diversity of species of any place in the world. Scientists found 860 different species living in the sand within 12 square yards (10 m2), and 187 species in 1.2 square yards (1 m2). • Apparently, in spite of others claiming the distinction, Praia do Cassino in southern Brazil, near the Uruguay border, is actually the longest beach in the world. It is 149 miles (240 km) long. • Cancun, Mexico, is known for its white sand beaches and the fact that the sand stays cool. The sand is composed of microscopic plankton fossils instead of silica, like most light-colored sand. • Opposite of Cancun’s white sand shores are the black sand beaches found in Hawaii, Alaska, Iceland and Black Sand Beach on the Lost Coast of California. Cooled lava from past volcanic eruptions formed the sand on these beaches, hence, the black color. Like asphalt, it absorbs the sun’s heat so you’ll need to wear shoes! • Wherever beaches are found, the tourists they draw are often a key part of keeping the adjacent towns and cities alive. Summer business sustains the economy year round for many beach areas. • In the state of Florida, beaches may be the most important stream of tourism and revenue. A lot of work is required to keep its beaches in good shape. Hurricanes are a major factor affecting beaches in Florida, as is erosion. In an average year, the state spends about $30 to $40 million for beach maintenance. The state collects approximately $3 to $4 billion from sales taxes paid by tourists, so they get a great return on their investment.

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

Heat and the Elderly DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My mother is 92 and lives by herself. She's quite independent and does well. A neighbor takes her grocery shopping, and we take her to other places she has to go. She is extremely set in her ways. I offered to have her home air-conditioned. She won't hear of it. She says she's used a fan all her life, and she likes to keep the windows open. I worry about someone her age tolerating heat, and it gets very hot here. Can you provide some arguments that would change her mind? -- D.A. ANSWER: Your offer to air-condition your mother's home is a kind gesture and has lots of merit. I'm not about to challenge your mother. She has successfully lived a long life, and I could learn from her. People in the past lived comfortably without air conditioning. Your mother does have to be on guard for dehydration and heat sickness. During hot summers, everyone has to stay well hydrated. Older people's sense of thirst is not as reliable an indicator of fluid needs as is younger people's thirst sense. She should sip water all day long, or she can choose any beverage she likes, including tea. Cooled drinks help keep the body cooled. Evaporation is the chief means the body has for staying cool. Not only is an older person's thirst sensation blunted, but so is the ability to sweat. Evaporation of sweat cools the body. I don't mean visible sweat; the sweating I mean is imperceptible but constant. Her fan helps evaporate that imperceptible sweat. However, with a reduced capacity to sweat, older people are at greater risk of suffering from a heat injury. Increased body heat increases the body's need for oxygen, and that stresses the heart.

On very hot days, how about inviting your mother over to your house until the hot spell breaks? *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a problem that I am reluctant to talk to the doctor about. It's a rectal itch. I have tried many preparations, but they haven't worked. What would you suggest? -- L.F. ANSWER: I'll mention a few self-remedies, but if the itch doesn't leave promptly, see a doctor. Too many conditions are responsible for such an itch, and each one has a different treatment. Psoriasis, pinworms, eczema and Bowen's disease are a few of the conditions causing a rectal itch. The doctor isn't going to faint when you mention this problem. It's a very common complaint. Make a couple of diet changes. Stop taking anything that has caffeine. The same goes for citrus fruits, tomatoes and chocolate. If these are the culprits, two weeks away from them should break the itch. Use moist cotton balls in place of toilet paper. Or you can use commercial products like Tucks. Take an antihistamine before going to bed. Itching usually worsens at night. Those are enough home remedies. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What is Proteus mirabilis, and how does it affect a person? And how is it treated? -- P.P. ANSWER: Proteus mirabilis is the name of a bacterium, a germ. It's often implicated in urinary tract infections, but it can cause infections elsewhere, too. Antibiotics eliminate it. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2011 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

OVERCOMING THE ODDS: HEATHER WHITESTONE McCALLUM When Heather Whitestone did not react to her mother dropping pans on the kitchen floor at 18 months of age, her mother knew there was a problem. A case of haemophilus influenza as a toddler and the antibiotics used to save her life left Whitestone with a profound hearing loss. • Whitestone’s mom encouraged her to learn to speak and read lips and discouraged sign language. She did learn sign language later. • At age 5, Whitestone started taking ballet lessons. Her mother hoped this would improve her rhythm for speech, which it did, and it also was a huge boost to her self-esteem through the years. Ballet was her talent when she competed in the Miss America pageant. • Born in Dothan, Alabama, in 1973, Whitestone looked to another deaf Alabaman, Helen Keller, as her role model. Keller’s determination became determination for Whitestone as well. She worked hard to learn in school, attending Central School for the Deaf in St. Louis, Missouri, for a few years when she had fallen behind in regular school. She passed six reading levels in three years, catching up with her peers. Whitestone graduated from a public high school in Birmingham, Alabama, with a 3.6 grade point average. • She won her first beauty pageant in the Miss America system as a student at Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama. From there, she followed up as first runner up to Miss Alabama in 1992. • In 1994, Whitestone won the Miss Alabama contest and went to the Miss America Pageant to represent her state for the 1995 contest. She danced a ballet to “Via Dolorosa” for her talent.

Tidbits of Kingman

By Samantha Weaver

¥ It was 20th-century novelist, literary critic and academic C.S. Lewis, best-known for his series "The Chronicles of Narnia," who made the following sage observation: "We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive." ¥ A year on the planet Neptune lasts about 165 of our Earth years. ¥ For reasons that aren't clear, lawmakers in the town of Devon, Conn., once saw fit to outlaw walking backward after sunset. ¥ You don't often associate museums with beverages, but it seems that they're fairly popular throughout the world. For instance, museums dedicated to coffee and/or tea can be found in London, Moscow, Paris, Sao Paolo, Zurich and Kyoto, as well as in China, South Korea, Colombia and Angola. Germany has three of them. Coffee and tea must be quite popular in the Netherlands; museums dedicated to the beverages can be found in five different cities there. ¥ Are you an ailurophile? If you're over-fond of cats, you are. ¥ You probably know that Bill Gates lives in a palatial house near Seattle, but you might not realize quite how big it is. The sprawling home is a whopping 66,000 square feet; the property taxes alone are approximately $1 million per year. It's not unusual to have heated floors, but the Gates' estate has heated driveways. Beats shoveling snow, I suppose. ¥ Need another reason to buy food that's grown locally? Studies show that 60 percent of what we spend on food is eaten up by transportation costs. *** Thought for the Day: "What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do." -- John Ruskin (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Rate Info 928-897-2218 or 928-279-0288 HEATHER WHITESTONE (continued): • Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford were the hosts of the Miss America Pageant when Whitestone won her title. When Regis announced the first runner up, Miss Virginia, Whitestone couldn’t hear the announcement. She didn’t know she had won until Miss Virginia turned to her and pointed as she hugged her. • With her win, Whitestone became the first person with a disability to win the title of Miss America. Another interesting Tidbit about the 1995 pageant: The telecast lasted for three hours, the longest in pageant history. The organization highlighted its 75-year history during the program. • During her reign, Whitestone showcased her program called S.T.A.R.S., which stands for “Success Through Action and Realization of your DreamS.” The five points of the S.T.A.R.S. program are: positive attitude, belief in a dream, willingness to work hard, facing obstacles, and building a strong support team. • Showing such great determination to reach her goals and overcome obstacles, Whitestone is a great role model for people of all ages and abilities. She worked hours to learn to dance and speak. She didn’t let her lack of hearing discourage her from reaching her dreams. • Whitestone has written four books since touring the country as Miss America. They are: “Listening with My Heart” (1997), “Believing the Promise” (1999), “Let God Surprise You” (2003) and “Heavenly Crowns” (2004). • Whitestone is married and has three sons. She is a motivational speaker affiliated with the Washington Speaker’s Bureau. Some of the topics she speaks on are: achievement, Christian faith & inspiration, courage and overcoming obstacles and challenges.

www.tidbitskingman.com HOT SALSA Salsa is the Spanish word for hot sauce. Whether you like it hot, medium or mild, it is a taste that has grown in popularity in North America in the last 20 years. • The mixing of tomatoes, onions, hot peppers and other ingredients for salsa has been happening since at least as far back as the 1500s in Central and South America among the Aztecs and other cultures. • A Spanish priest and missionary, Alonso de Molina, is credited with calling the hot sauce mix “salsa” in 1571. • The first bottled hot sauce appeared in the United States in Massachusetts in 1807. In 1868, Edmund McIlhenny started bottling his hot sauce, Tabasco, on Avery Island, west of New Orleans. Tabasco hot sauce surged in popularity and continues to be a huge seller. Other hot sauces soon emerged, and many have been around for 100-plus years like Tabasco. • Charles Erath of New Orleans manufactured a salsa product in 1916 called “Extract of Louisiana Pepper” Red Hot Creole Sauce. It, like Tabasco, was a hot sauce but not a dippable salsa. • In 1917, La Victoria Foods in Los Angeles started making Salsa Brava, a true salsa. It wasn’t until 1941 that Henry Tanklage formed the La Victoria Sales Company to market the first salsa hot sauces in the United States. • David and Margaret Pace, founders of Pace Foods in San Antonio, Texas, created Pace Picante Sauce in 1947. The chunky tomatobased hot salsa quickly grabbed followers and gained market share and shelf space at grocery stores.

BICYCLES (continued): In the 1890s, the first “modern” bicycles appeared: chain-driven vehicles with similarly-sized tires. These were safer than the high-wheel models (and were even called “safety bicycles” as a result), but proved a step backwards in comfort. While the long spokes of high-wheel bikes absorbed bumps and ruts, the smaller wheels on these new bikes, particularly when coupled with the hard-rubber tires of the era, made for jarring, unpleasant rides. More than a million bicycles were sold in the United States by the time 1895 rolled around, but one last improvement would propel the bicycle into the must-own category: the pneumatic tire. Under the guidance of the Pope Manufacturing Company (which made bicycles), the Hartford Rubber Works produced America’s first pneumatic tires in 1895. Providing a much softer ride, they soon became a standard feature on all bicycle models. Dozens of smaller-scale improvements boosted the speed, comfort, longevity and performance of bicycles during the 20th century. As women began to find them as necessary as men, two varieties of bicycle were made. Men’s bikes were built with an extra stabilizer bar across the top of the bike. Women’s bikes omitted the bar, providing for easier mounting and dismounting of the vehicle when wearing skirts. The 1970s saw the development of two bicycle extremes. First came bicycles that took you nowhere. Otherwise known as exercise bikes, these training aids first hit the home market at the beginning of the decade. Then, as time went on and the energy crisis sent fuel prices skyrocketing, mopeds appeared. These bicycle/motorcycle hybrids, most popular with city-centered business workers, could either be pedaled like a regular bike or powered using a small, low-powered gasoline engine.

HOT SALSA (continued): • David Pace actually came from a syrup-making family in Louisiana and started the company as a syrup and condiment business. Then he decided that the real “syrup of the Southwest” is Mexican salsa. Pace said it was the 1970s hippies who boosted his sales: “No question but this health stuff made the whole category explode!” Pace Picante Sauce has become an iconic tomato product like Campbell’s Tomato Soup. Campbell’s actually bought Pace Foods from the family in San Antonio in 1994 for $1.1 billion. • How about a little hot trivia? Pace Foods uses more than 25 million pounds (11,339,809 kg) of fresh jalapeños every year! They are hand picked across the southern United States and Mexico. • Pace is not alone in the salsa field of retail sales. There are many brands and many flavors that fill grocery store shelves. There are also many Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants, as well as top chefs and gourmet restaurants, that now offer their own style of salsa all over the world. • Salsa, while not considered “health food” per se, is definitely healthy. Whether homemade or store bought, it is low in calories, sugar, fat and sodium, and the chunks of garden ingredients even provide fiber. The main ingredients in many salsas — tomatoes, peppers and cilantro — contain vitamins A and C, and tomatoes also have potassium. • The percentage of American households buying salsa, increased from 16 percent to 36 percent between 1988 and 1992. Salsa passed ketchup as the No. 1 condiment in America in 2000. Salsa sales have not shown any sign of slowing in 2011. It seems that our north of the border tastebuds sure love the tastes that have come from our neighbors to the south!
