TIDBITS® ANNOUNCES

A Real Choice In Soft Water

IT’S TEA TIME! by Kathy Wolfe

It’s the world’s second most popular and cheapest beverage (after water), so shouldn’t you know a little more about tea? Tidbits has the goods on this drink, so listen up and learn! • Every day about three billion cups of tea are consumed around the world. In America, it can be found in 80% of households, and an estimated 127 million Americans are drinking it on any given day. Most of that tea comes from India, the world’s largest tea producer, processing about 850,000 tons each year.

• Tea as we know it is about 5,000 years old. Legend has it that a Chinese emperor discovered a good cup of tea in 2737 B.C. when some tea leaves off the tree into his pot of boiling water, producing a pleasant aroma. Tea became popular in Europe during the 1600s and was brought to North America by the colonists. Britain’s Duchess of Bedford is said to have created the traditional afternoon tea around 1840, when she needed a pick-me-up to combat what she called “that sinking feeling.”

• When the British government heavily taxed the tea shipped to the American colonies, in 1773, a group of 116 men dressed as Native Americans boarded British ships and tossed 342 chests of tea overboard, about 90,000 lbs. (40,823 kg) worth. In today’s currency, that was equal to nearly a million dollars! Turn the page for more!

• While white tea skips the steps of processing (the leaves are just steamed and dried), green, black, and oolong teas all go through a series of steps. It starts with withering, when the tea leaves are spread out and dried in a warm environment, which makes them pliable. A rolling machine is next, twisting the leaves in order to release the flavorful natural oils. Some more expensive grades of teas are rolled by hand, resulting in a higher quality. The leaves then undergo an oxidation process, when they are spread out in a cool room. At this point, the tea leaves are still green, but as they take in oxygen they gradually turn darker. The darkening can be stopped by heating. Green tea is not oxidized, oolong tea is oxidized for a short time, and the dark black tea oxidation process, which takes about three hours, is uninterrupted. The chemical reactions that take place during oxidation are what alters the leaves’ color and flavor.

• While a cup of tea does contain caffeine, it doesn’t compare to the amount found in coffee. A cup of tea has about 40 mg. of caffeine compared to coffee’s 110 mg per cup. The lesser-processed green tea has even less caffeine than black leaves. But if you want a higher caffeine level in your tea, sip yerba maté, which has about the same amount as coffee.

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is no reason to be mean if someone thinks the ends justify the means. Group interactions and politics can be challenging in the week ahead, but a trusted partner will be there to add moral support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be steadfast and true to your goals in the week ahead. Don’t be sidetracked by small temptations. Even the most awkward situation can’t dampen your enthusiasm for those things close to the heart. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let excuses put limits on your success. You may be able to talk your way out of any box, but you must be sincere about your promises and resolutions to make it to the big leagues in the week to come. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Grab hold of a situation by the scruff of the neck. Like a mother cat with a kitten, it may be a case of mother knows best. Earn respect from others by being gentle, but firm, in the upcoming week. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Practice what you preach. If you follow your heart and remember to take your own advice, everything will work out for the best this week. Upsets at the workplace could suddenly alter your prospects. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you really love ‘em, you can’t leave ‘em. Close intimate relationships can grow closer in the week ahead. This may be an excellent day to talk over long-term plans and define joint objectives. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Learn to grin and bear it. World opinion may go against the grain in the week ahead. Focus on personal romance instead. An ill-informed consensus is still wrong - no matter how many people share it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Know your boundaries and stay within them. The week to come may show you that true love means you must do your duty. You may learn that security in relationships is more valuable than excitement. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You deserve a break today. Plans will move along like clockwork during the upcoming week if you pay extra attention to a special someone. Frankly discuss problems to nip troubles before they bud. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might not be a very good cook, but even you can manage to bake some humble pie. Situations outside your control might force you to take a back seat or to accept your limits in the week ahead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Opportunity only knocks once, so listen closely. In the week ahead be on the lookout for a chance to make some extra cash, buy something of beauty, improve your health, or make everyday tasks easier. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Romance might be on your mind in the week to come. Hold off on vows of commitment and everlasting love until at least the middle of the week. Right now, your impulsive actions might backfire.

News from the Shelter Be a Humane Hero The Moose Jaw Humane Society’s Annual Dog Jog is June 9th this year! The shelter’s 18th Annual Dog Jog Fundraiser is coming up; the event will be held on Sunday, June 9th. In an attempt to raise greater awareness for the shelter and its needs, the route has changed to a highly visible location; the walk will start at the south end of the Town ‘N’ Country Mall parking lot and proceed down Main Street. At the bottom of the hill, the Bad Intentions Bus will be waiting to shuttle those participants who do not wish to retrace the route back up to the parking lot. This year, the event will have a “Humane Heroes” theme, so participants (two and four-legged) are encouraged to come dressed in their favourite superhero costumes! Pledge forms (with our rules and regulations) are now available at the shelter or download one from our website (www.mjhs.ca). We strongly encourage everyone to collect pledges this year – why not get a team together and challenge your friends, family, coworkers and neighbours to support you in this fun event! Please note our minimum entry fees (in lieu of pledges) are: $25 per person, $50 per couple, and $100 per team of 4+. Prior to collecting pledges, please call the shelter for an official registration number. There’ll be food and snacks available at the conclusion of the walk, as well as prizes for most pledges (youth/ adult/team), best costumes, and more! Registration begins at 1:30 and the walk starts promptly at 2PM. (Alternate bad weather date is June 16th - same time same place.) Let’s make this year’s Dog Jog the biggest and best one ever!

L u n a a d u l t female pitbull cross Look at my g o rg e o u s face! Who can resist a face like this? Not only am I beautiful but I am a very happy little girl too. I love to play! Male dogs are okay with me, but I would prefer to be the only girl in my house. I am kind of a princess that way. I would also prefer a cat free home.

Suri - adult female pitbull/ collie cross Everyone here at the shelter loves me! I get lots of attention from people who stop by too, but for some reason no one has decided to give me my forever home. I am a cheerful girl who is sure to put a smile on your face. If you like to dance I could be your partner, I can dance around on my back two legs for quite a long time. An added bonus is this makes it easier for me to stare lovingly into your eyes.

Rocky– adult male shar pei/ terrier cross Are you looking for a young friend to keep you company and keep you fit? I have mastered my basic manners and walk well on leash. I probably run well too, but we will have to wait until all this snow melts to find out! I have lived with children and love to spend time with them. I do have a severe “allergy” to cats though.

Pumpkina d u l t female DSH I am a r e c e n t surrender to the shelter. My family’s living situation changed and they were not able to take me along to their new home. I am so lonely for a place and family to call my own. I hope someone stops in to give me a second chance very soon.

Liamadult male DSH I am a very s o c i a l , loveable boy who likes to share my living space with other cats. If you are looking for a first time cat or another cat to add to your family I would be the perfect candidate – come meet me today!

Pharoha d u l t neutered male DMH Are you looking for a cat to love that will love you back? I am definitely the guy for you. I love people so much that the photographer had a dickens of a time getting a good shot of me. As soon as I see people I start rolling over for belly rubs and purring!

• Herbal teas, also known as tisanes, aren’t really tea at all. They come from the roots, stems, and flowers of other plants. There are numerous types of tisanes, depending on what part of the plant they come from. Mint, verbena, and lemongrass varieties are leaf tisanes, while chamomile, hibiscus, and lavender are flower tisanes. Cinnamon is a considered a bark type, while ginger, Echinacea, and chicory are root tisanes.

• The invention of the tea bag came about by accident. In 1904, a New York tea importer was looking for a cheaper way to send samples to customers. Thomas Sullivan had been using tin boxes, but as this proved expensive, he began wrapping the tea in small silk bags. His customers didn’t realize the bags were just packaging, and brewed their tea in them. Soon after, Sullivan was receiving orders for the new product. Today, 96% of the world brews its tea using a tea bag.

• More of tea’s many medicinal and health benefits are being uncovered every day. Green tea seems to be especially healthful. It is high in the amino acid theanine, which has been shown to reduce stress and improve mental concentration. It may also increase the body’s immune system and antioxidant powers. Lab testing indicates that catechins, a type of antioxidant, inhibit the growth of cancer cells and may help reduce the breakdown of cartilage. A recent university study indicated that tea has more potent antioxidants than 22 fruits and vegetables that were tested. Scientists say drinking green tea might also even help prevent tooth decay! And a study in the Netherlands has shown that those who drink catechin-rich tea are 50% less likely to die of heart disease.

• Tea is not just for drinking! On the outside, green tea can help with inflammation. Soothe your puffy eyes with a soaked, chilled green tea bag. The same will work for insect bites. Keep mosquitoes away by smoothing the skin with damp tea leaves. Black tea bags have been proven beneficial in removing plantar warts. It’s the acidic tannin present in tea that shrinks the wart, just by placing a cooled bag on the wart for 15 minutes three times a day. • Tisanes also have medicinal qualities. If you have an upset stomach, try sipping peppermint tea, since peppermint relaxes the muscles that give you stomach cramps. The antiinflammatory properties of licorice root can reduce the swelling of a sore throat. It’s also well known that chamomile tea is a relaxant and is a natural sleep aid.

• And it’s not just the human body that reaps the benefits of tea. It’s a great fertilizer for your roses! Watering both indoor and outdoor plants with cool leftover brewed tea gives them a boost of nutrients. You can also stir brewed tea leaves into your garden soil. • Tea experts warn not to use an aluminum teapot to prepare a tisane. Because aluminum is a reactive metal, they claim that it can react with certain plant types, and the result can actually be toxic.

Who hasn’t read the delightful Tale of Peter Rabbit and the many other stories of whimsical animals written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter? Let’s take a look at the life of this admired woman whose work is even more popular than it was during her lifetime. • Born in 1866 to a wealthy London family, Helen Beatrix Potter spent most of her time with nannies and governesses, rarely seeing her parents except at bedtime. Educated in a schoolroom in their home, Beatrix and her younger brother also didn’t have the opportunity to interact with other children. Instead, a wide variety of pets became their companions and the Potter children spent many hours a day observing and sketching the mice, frogs, lizards, snakes, rabbits, turtles, hedgehogs, and a bat that shared their schoolroom. Beatrix demonstrated a unique gift for drawing, and when she was 12, her parents hired a private art tutor to help further her abilities. • Beatrix’ first income from her work came in her 20’s when she sold six watercolor paintings of her pet rabbit to a greeting card firm, which led to a series of other illustrating jobs. About this time, she began writing illustrated letters to the children of a former governess. It was here that Peter Rabbit had his beginnings. Seven years after she had written to one young child, she asked to borrow the letters, copying the illustrations into a rough black-and-white version of a children’s book.

• Beatrix sent The Tale of Peter Rabbit to six publishers, all of whom rejected it. She paid to have the book privately published, ordering 250 copies which sold immediately. The little volume caught the attention of the publishing firm of Frederick Warne, a company of three brothers who agreed to publish it if Beatrix would re-draw the pictures in color. The firm released 8,000 copies of Peter in October, 1902, and by 1903 had sold over 50,000 copies. Cont’d on pg 10

“DARK SKIES”: There’s little in this family-plagued-by-otherworldly-forces tale that you haven’t seen before, but good acting by reliable stars goes a long way in selling the premise again. Keri Russell - who’s had a resurgence this year, thanks also to her FX series “The Americans” - and Josh Hamilton (“J. Edgar”) play spouses and parents who come to believe their house also contains unwelcome visitors. The always-welcome J.K. Simmons (“The Closer”) plays an authority on the paranormal who tries to help the couple. DVD extras: audio commentary by writer-director Scott Stewart, producer Jason Blum, executive producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and editor Peter Gvozdas; deleted and alternate scenes. ***

“LONGMIRE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: In the week when the modern Western series - based on Craig Johnson novels - begins its second A&E Network round, this set of freshman episodes introduces Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, a tight-lipped, troubled Wyoming sheriff. He has very close competition as he bids to keep his job while continuing his mission to solve crimes, which occur quite regularly in his jurisdiction. Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”), Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville”) and Lou Diamond Phillips also star. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; deleted scenes; photo gallery. *** “RED WIDOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: Recently aired on ABC, the melodrama about a sudden widow (Radha Mitchell, “Pitch Black”) forced into her slain husband’s mob life comes to DVD. She determines that continuing his activities is the only way she can ensure the safety of the rest of her family, though that turns out to be no guarantee, as she repeatedly finds out. Goran Visnjic (“ER”), Rade Serbedzija, Jaime Ray Newman and Lee Tergesen (“Oz”) also star. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** “LORE”: A recipient of several international awards, this drama features a notable performance by young Saskia Rosendahl as the title character, one of several children of a Nazi couple taken prisoner at the end of World War II. The siblings set out for their grandmother’s house, and en route, Lore comes to realize the meaning of what has happened to her family and her country. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; two “making-of ” documentaries; deleted scenes; alternate ending; panel discussion. ***

Farewell and thank you for your support over the last 12 years. We are saddened that Silver Star Salvage is no longer going to be able to serve the citizens of Moose Jaw in keeping our landfill free of waste metal. We thank the City of Moose Jaw Landfill staff for all of their hard work and dedication over the past 12 years. They helped us give birth to, and to grow the Landfill Recycle Program. It is a well functioning program we created, with significant local impact. In 2001 Silver Star Salvage approached the City of Moose Jaw Engineering Department and City Council with a proposal to recycle all the metal that was going to the landfill. It took a year of consultation with the city to put an agreement in place. Everyone ultimately agreed that it was a good idea to recycle metal that was being buried. It took a lot of hard work, dedication, and marketing to educate people to recycle metal, that doesn’t biodegrade. Since 2002 Silver Star Salvage has recovered several tons of scrap metal from the landfill that would have been buried. It was a win – win situation saving the landfill and its life expectance along with giving back to our community. As a dedicated local business, started and grown right here in our community, Silver Star Salvage donated proceeds from the Landfill Recycling Program back into community programs and charities on a monthly basis. This was over and above our contract to pay funds directly to the City of Moose Jaw in order to carry out the program. May 7, 2013 Silver Star Salvage received notification that we will NO LONGER be recycling your metal out of the landfill. A large company from Ontario has been awarded the contract until 2016. The company has no office in Moose Jaw, and does not seem to be directly taxable by the City, but was able to obtain a business license for $350/year to do business in our city. We recognize that this Ontario Company is just doing business. It followed all of the rules in submitting it’s tender. They overbid Silver Star Salvage by $10/ ton. The City will be able to collect an extra $1300 per year by contracting out to this transient business. We have placed two calls to the Mayors office, with NO REPLY!! We had hoped that the City would support local business in the way that we local businesses and citizens support Moose Jaw. Without all of us, who pays for infrastructure, road repair, the new hospital, Mosaic Place, the field house? How much does $350/ per year from a transient business help fund the needs of our city. And how much can we rely upon transient businesses employing people, making donations and support local charities and programs? Should you wish to support us in this, and express your opinion on this matter to the City of Moose Jaw, call 306-694-4400 or email from the City website www.moosejaw.ca we would be grateful. Cal, Mel and the staff at

BEATRIX POTTER (continued from pg 7): • The youngest Warne brother, Norman, was assigned as Beatrix’ editor. It wasn’t long before a romance bloomed between the two. Her parents did not approve of the romance, and when Norman sent Beatrix a letter containing a marriage proposal, her parents forbade the union. Shortly afterward, Norman became very ill, and sadly, just one month after his proposal, he died of leukemia.

Moose Jaw, Sk

• After the tragedy, Beatrix dedicated herself to her work, using her earnings to purchase farmland, where she raised sheep. A local solicitor, William Heelis, advised her on her land dealings as she continued to buy up local farms. Beatrix married Heelis when she was 47 years old, and the pair continued to purchase land, 15 farms in all. Answers on page 14

• Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated 23 books in all, including The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, The Story of Miss Moppet, and The Tale of Tom Kitten. In 1921, the first Peter Rabbit books were published in Braille. Beatrix passed away in 1943, leaving a charming legacy that will entertain children for generations to come. Many of her childhood sketches, letters, and original watercolors are displayed in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

IT’S TEE TIME! Fore! Look out as Tidbits presents a few facts about the tools necessary for a good golf game. • The ancient Romans played a game similar to golf as we know it, but the modern game of golf was developed in Scotland in the 1400s. The first written record is that of a ban of the sport by King James II in 1457, calling golf a distraction to learning archery, which was necessary for national defense. • The official rules of golf state that a golfer’s bag may contain 14 clubs. A typical player will carry a driver, two woods, seven irons, three wedges, and a putter. The putter has earned the nickname “the money club” because it is the one used to tap the ball into the hole. The first clubs were made entirely of wood, followed by wood shafts with iron heads. In the 1920s, steelshafted clubs came into play. Shafts made of fiberreinforced composite materials were introduced in the early 1970s.

• The earliest golf balls were probably made of wood. Golf balls in the early 1800s consisted of thin leather pieces stuffed with feathers. Those that were very tightly packed flew the farthest. More than 5,000 patents have been granted for various forms of golf balls since 1900. Those little indentations on the ball are called dimples and were first used about 100 years ago. Players discovered that damaged balls flew farther than new ones, so companies began manufacturing balls in different shapes trying to increase the distances. One ingenious fellow studied the ball’s path, and came up with the current dimpled idea. Today’s regulation golf ball has 336 dimples. • An official golf ball should not weigh more than 1.62 oz., and must be at least 1.68 inches in diameter. • There are about 32,000 golf courses worldwide, with close to 20,000 of those in the United States. The country of Singapore has one course every 10 square miles, giving it the record for the highest

per population density. England has one course every 27 square miles, and Scotland every 56. Yet some of the most populated areas of the world have no golf at all, for example, the Ukraine, whose population exceeds 47 million with nary a course in sight! • During a 1971 tournament in England, a 26-yearold golf pro named John Hudson achieved two consecutive holes-in-one at the 11th and 12th holes. Don’t expect to tie his record – the chances of repeating this are one in 67 million. • If you’d like to golf on the world’s longest course, you’ll have to travel to Australia. Some of the tees are 50 miles (80.5 km) apart on the 850-milelong (1368 km) Nullarbor Links course that spans two Australian states. Don’t be surprised if you encounter the occasional wild camel or wombat. Be sure to notch out enough time for your game – somewhere between three and four days! The cost seems reasonable, however at $46.
