Nov. 11: From Armistice to Veterans Day Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation in 1954 to change the name to Veterans Day as a way to honor those who served in all American wars. The day honors military veterans with parades and speeches across the nation. A national ceremony takes place at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Who has served

■ 21.8 million — The number of military veterans in the United States in 2010. ■ 1.6 million — The number of female veterans in 2010. ■ 2.4 million — The number of black veterans in 2010. Additionally, 1.2 million veterans were Hispanic; 265,000 were Asian; 156,000 were American Indian or Alaska Native; 28,000 were Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander; and 17.5 million were non-Hispanic white. ■ 9 million — The number of veterans 65 and older in 2010. At the other end of the age spectrum, 1.7 million were younger than 35.

When they served

■ 7.6 million — Number of Vietnam-era veterans in 2010. Thirty-five percent of all living veterans served during this time (1964-1975). In addition, 4.8 million served during the Gulf War (representing service from Aug. 2, 1990, to present); 2.1 million in World War II (1941-1945); 2.6 million in the Korean War (1950-1953); and 5.5 million in peacetime only. ■ 49,500 — Number of living veterans in 2010 who served during the Vietnam era and both Gulf War eras and no other period. ■ 54,000 — Other living veterans in 2010 who served during three wars: World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam era. ■ 1.2 million — Living veterans in 2010 who served during two wars and no other period: 837,000 served during both Gulf War eras; 211,000 served during both the Korean War and the Vietnam era; 147,000 served during both World War II and the Korean War.

Deer processing class offered at Parma Woods By Bill Graham Missouri Department of Conservation

One reason white-tailed deer hunting is popular in Missouri is that venison is a lean, nutritious and delicious protein source. Careful processing from field to freezer can enhance deer meat for the table. The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer a course on how to process venison 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Parma Woods Shooting Range near Parkville, 15900 N.W. River Road. Instructors will explain how to process a fielddressed deer for cooking or for storage in a freezer. The class will include tool demonstrations, such as what types of knives work best for various butchering chores. Attendees will learn how to skin a deer and how to prepare various cuts of meat. The class is free but participants are urged to pre-register by Nov. 18. For more information or to register, call 891-9941. A good source of information on how to process deer meat for table or freezer is available on the MDC website, mdc.mo.gov. Some of the basics include: • Hang a deer to allow blood to drain and the body temperature to cool to 50 degrees or below. Freezing the meat immediately can add toughness. It is not necessary to hang deer for long periods, although, hanging them for up to eight days in temperatures from 30 to 40 degrees can improve tenderness and flavor. • Leave the skin on during hanging to avoid dehydration. • Remove as much fat as possibly while processing, and removed bruised or gun shot-damaged tissue. •The deer’s age, sex and diet influences venison taste and tenderness, so plan recipes accordingly.

Missouri deer hunters asked to share meat For many Missourians, the arrival of November also means the arrival of deer hunting season. But before nearly 500,000 hunters pick up their rifles later this month, Gov. Jay Nixon is encouraging them to share the rewards of a successful hunt. Nixon toured the state Nov. 1 encouraging hunters to take part in Missouri’s Share the Harvest program, in which hunters share some or all of the deer meat they capture with Missouri’s food banks. “Like almost a half a million people on the morning of Nov. 12, I’ll be out trying to make sure that we cannot only have some fun, but add to the protein stock of food banks across Missouri,” Nixon said, while speaking at MidwayUSA hunting supply company. Last year, the Share the Harvest program brought in more than 6,100 deer resulting in 350,000 pounds of venison. That was an increase over the 4,600 deer donated in 2009 and 4,200 in 2008. Also on Oct. 31, Nixon announced $1 million in additional funding for the Missouri Association of Food Banks from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. Although hunters can donate a portion of their deer, the program requests whole deer carcasses for processing. Information on donating to Share the Harvest is available at mo.gov. — Missouri News Horizon

The seniors I heard from didn’t all share the same political views ... But their beliefs about Social Security and Medicare — protections that so many American seniors rely on that have come under increasing scrutiny — were crystal clear. It’s an agreement Congress should take note of.

responsible for seniors’ health care, nearly half of all seniors were uninsured and more than one-third of seniors lived in poverty. We also talked about the importance of retirement benefits to veterans. We agreed that Congress can’t balance its budget by breaking the promises made to the men and women who’ve served. There will need to be shared sacrifice when it comes to getting spending under control, but veterans have already sacrificed for our country.

Gladstone equine enthusiast helps lay to rest racing legend Racehorse Noor moved to Kentucky grave By Kathy Crawford Gladstone resident Kathleen Kimber took a journey to Kentucky recently to say a final goodbye to an old friend and meet some new ones. Kimber traveled to Old Friends, a thoroughbred retirement and rescue facility, to lay to rest one of her favorite racehorses of all time: Noor. “I’ve always loved horse racing,” Kimber said. She met Charlotte Farmer in a circle of online friends dedicated to thoroughbreds and racing. Farmer was raising funds to locate and reinter the remains of Noor at Old Friends in Georgetown, Ky. Kimber volunteered to help, so Farmer invited her to go along for the burial. Noor, born in Ireland in 1945, came from a good bloodline, Kimber said. When you looked at the thoroughbred, there was no denying that Nasrullah sired Noor, she said. The Aga Khan III owned Nasrullah, who was grand-sire of Secretariat.

And Noor kept good company. Charles Howard, owner of Seabiscuit, bought Noor in 1949. Although Noor did some racing in 1949, he began breaking records in 1950. But something bigger happened that year. “In 1950 the Korean War broke out,” Kimber said. This is probably the biggest reason Noor, a hall-of-famer, did not get the press he would have in other circumstances, she said. Kimber said Noor beat the famous Citation in four out of five races, and that is when she took notice. She said she has a video recording of Noor beating Citation and Assault, both Triple Crown winners, during the Hollywood Gold Cup. “That was the biggest win, I think,” Kimber said. Noor was one of only two horses ever to defeat two Triple Crown winners and was named the 1950 U.S. Champion Male Handicap Horse of

The “hall of fame” cemetery at Old Friends Equine, a facility for retired thoroughbred horses, includes the grave of Noor. Charlotte Farmer said the racehorse had been named for the Kohinoor diamond. Kohinoor means “mountain of light.” the Year, according to Farmer. Noor went to Charles Howard’s ranch after this race, and in 1951 he moved around to a few ranches to stand at stud. Noor died in 1974 at the age of 29 and was buried infield at one ranch’s half-mile training track, according to Farmer. Kimber said Noor was the first hall-of-famer buried in his entirety at Old Friends rather than an exhibition. She said Old Friends is a special

previously home to the historic Claybrook House until a 2002 fire destroyed the house. As a result of the incident, the county received $175,000 in insurance money. The funding has gone toward building a shelter and restrooms at the site. The shelter was dedicated in 2008, and the county rents it for $75 per event. Restroom facilities include men’s and women’s bathrooms and are open year round. The site also includes a parking lot with two handicap-accessible spots next to the restroom facility and near the shelter. An interpretive sign provides the history of Claybrook. Of the original insurance money, $85,000 remains. In 2002, county commissioners committed to putting all of the insurance money back into the property, creating a recreational destination for county residents and visi-

tors. However, the commission members have changed since that time, and nothing aside from the former commission’s word binds the present commission to the original plan for the funding. The Clay County Park Board unanimously recommended the playground expenditure to the commission. Porter and Mason did

not indicate what they would like the funding to go toward instead of the play equipment. County parks leaders are evaluating the next step. “We would like to have something available to the people of Clay County at the site that would enhance what we already have there,” said Beth Beckett, Clay County historic sites director.

The steel mailboxes will be bolted into concrete outside the county buildings in Liberty and Kansas City North. McEvoy plans to collect the payments in the boxes early the morning of Jan. 1. Commissioners had safety and vandalism concerns about the boxes, and McEvoy detailed security and anti-vandalism features of the boxes. Commissioners also questioned what would happen if a taxpayer were to say he or she had put the payment in the box but the county had no record of
