They lived a very simple life without many frills. There seems to be none like him left?

Harry & Bess Truman

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them. When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating,

“You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me.. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.” Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.” As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food. Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, too many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale (ie. Illinois ). Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!”

We ought to have cloned him! ENTERTAINMENT

President wanted

Qualities of a good President

You have probably heard the old saying that “ anybody can Richard Matz, grow up to be president. But, not everybody is cut out to be PresiPublisher dent. It takes a special kind of person, someone tough, smart, and driven, just to run for the job. It takes still more talent and character to hold up under the pressures of life in the White House. The President must be a great motivator and smart enough to select the absolute best people for the appointed positions the President is responsible for filling. He also has to be humble enough to listen and act on the opinions of those smart people he selected. Sorry for the use of that “he” pronoun but we haven’t had a female president yet. While the history books glorify presidents who start wars that abuse their power, the truly great presidents are the ones strong enough to avoid using their power to attempt anything which is impossible. A truly great president does not intervene in other countries except for defense and does not intervene in the economy because he realizes that such actions are counterproductive. A truly great president also stays out of the peoples personal lives, except for truly defensive purposes (ie. punishing violent crimes) A great president is not one who desires to roll other people, but one who desires to rule as little as necessary. — Richard Matz, Publisher.

Wanna be a great President, gotta have a good hair One of the needed attributes you need to become president of the United States is a great head of hair. Proof positive is in the pictures below. So all you wannabe presidents, look in the mirror and check out your coif. In recent memory, especially since when you could see these guys on TV, our commanders-in-chief have been blessed with the good hair gene. In fact, you have to go all the way back to the 1950s and Dwight Eisenhower to find a bald-headed president. Even if they go significantly more grey while in office, like Presidents Obama and George W. Bush, our presidents seem to have pretty healthy heads of hair. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that many of those aspiring to the office are blessed with good hair genes, too. Look at Mitt Romney, or even John Edwards back in 2008. Edwards reportedly went all out for his hair, spending as much as $400 for a haircut. Wait until he sees the haircut he could get in prison, but that’s another story. The point is: In the age of television, appearance matters. I don’t expect we’ll elect another bald president anytime soon, which is too bad. There are undoubtedly a lot of qualified bald people out there. Anyways, all this got us wondering if there’s something magical about good hair and politicians.

Counterclockwise: Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson.

Making ‘you’ a priority is the way to happy As women we are lauded for our innate abilities to multi-task.  I can personally type an email, while on the phone and gesturing for someone to come into my office to take a seat.  Career women have achieved the Super Woman status and feel they must have it all…     Women are filling several full-time responsibilities “part-time” and the sad reality is that very often the SHE is the person SHE neglects the most.  If Mommy, Wife, Supervisor, Boss is tired; drained or exhausted everyone suffers.  It’s great to do all, know all and be all but understand that there MUST be time set aside specifically for you.  Abraham Maslow’s was a psy-

chologist that established a well-respected Hierarchy of (human) Needs which is made up of five distinct categories.  The needs are listed from 1 to 5, with 1 being the most basic.  The principle is simple…  If one’s physiological needs aren’t met, they can’t focus on their safety needs or belongingness and so forth.  The five needs are: 1. Physiological Needs: Oxygen,

Food, Water, Sex, Sleep, Warmth 2.  Safety Needs: Protection, Security, Order, Law, Limit, Stability  3.  Belongingness / Love Needs: Family, Affection, Relationships 4.  Esteem Needs: Achievement, Status, Responsibility, Reputation 5.  Self-Actualization Needs: Personal Growth, Fulfillment Understanding Maslow’s hierarchy will help you understand the importance of ensuring your needs are met.  Part of the safety brief when flying on an airplane is for parents to telling parents to put the oxygen masks on themselves BEFORE putting the mask on their children; because if the parent passes out there will be no one to take

care of the child.  Remember that when it comes to the corporation of Y.O.U. there are no compromises authorized! Sherry D. Strothers is a life coach and Lipstick Leader founder.

And you dance harder. Better yet, I love making you so numb that you detach from this world altogether; alone, claustrophobic, without hope. Your private heaven in hell. What I supply is instant gratification. Something which you find as vital as water and are willing to exchange for your soul. What about suffering, you ask? Never mind that. Why think about the future now? After all, you are a highly trained fighting machine. You have willpower and brains. You’ll be the one person in all the world to get the better of me. It could happen. Naysayers just don’t understand. Anyway, that’s a question for tomorrow, not today. Trust me. Haven’t I always been there for you?

It is you who chooses me. You’re the one who buys and uses and hides and craves in an endless cycle. So many have chosen me over sanity and peace. Sadly, not everyone thinks like you. Hard as I might try, some folks just aren’t interested in my kind of heaven. Instead they’ve chosen programs and meetings and fellowships and a higher power. Luckily I have all the time in the world.

How to lose weight faster, healthier and successfully You hear all the time that to lose weight properly, you should track what you eat. Personally, as someone who has lost and maintained that loss of over 100 pounds, I will say that daily food and fitness tracking is one of the top three things that keeps me on point and directed to my goal. More than just tracking food intake, I track my sleep, mentality, fitness and water. At the end of the week I can compare and contrast a good week from a bad week using all of those factors. In a study from from Kaiser Permanente’s Center Health Research. 1,685 overweight and obese adults (men and women), whose average weight was 212 pounds, participated in a study that encouraged them to plan their eating, reduce calories, eat clean and record their daily food intake and fitness routines. After 20 weeks, the average weight loss was 13 pounds per person. But researchers discovered something else; the more participants recorded what they ate, the more weight they lost in the end. Those who did not actively food track lost an average only 9 lbs., and those who did lost an average of 18 lbs. By tracking your food, you become

more accountable to your own actions. If you know you’re going to have to record that candy bar on your food tracker, you might think twice about eating it. Tracking your food allows you to also be aware of what’s in the food you are preparing. Having the mindset that you eat healthy doesn’t always add up to your true actions. What is in your food? How is it affecting your body? Do your choices align with your goals? Your health goals success is directly

in line with your actions. This isn’t news to the millions of people who have lost weight in a healthy manner by tracking their food and fitness.

Your assignment?

Choose what works for you! Paper tracking versus utilizing an app or website. Do whichever works best for you, and most importantly that you will be honest with. Decide to commit to cleaning up your act with eating and make goals for yourself. If you aren’t ready to commit fully, start small! Make a water goal for the week (with that comes giving up sugary fat-filled coffee drinks, soda, and juice), choose

to aim to eat every 2-3 hours (starting with breakfast under 60 minutes from waking up), and try your best to fuel your body right! It is simple. It requires priorities but ultimately leads to meeting your goals.

Marines plan troop cuts Congressionally mandated budget cuts will force the Marine Corps to trim the “strategy-driven” force design it had envisioned and shift toward reduced troop strength said Maj. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., the Marine representative for the Defense Department’s Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) being prepared for release in February 2014. The end strength reduction would require a 1-to-2 dwell force ratio, assigning Marines to six months of deployment, followed by

12 at home. The cut from the current 194,000 troops would be accomplished by 2017, McKenzie said, adding that if sequestration continued, the “lowest risk band” option the Corps could handle would be 174,000. The Marines’ plan also involves cutting tanks and artillery, eliminating a three-star expeditionary force headquarters command in Camp Lejeune, N.C., and deemphasizing long-term stabilization activities such as cooperative threat-response exercises with allies.

Enlisted Marine females begin infantry course By Julian E. Barnes The first group of enlisted Marine women will try their hand at completing the Infantry Training Course next week, part of the Marine Corps’s efforts to integrate women into frontline ground combat roles, according to Marine Corps officials. The Marines have sent six female officer volunteers to the Infantry Officer Course in Quantico, Va., but so far none of the officers have been able to complete the course. Six more officers

will attempt to complete that course in October. The Marines are hoping that more than a half dozen women will volunteer to try the 59-day training course for enlisted service members at the School of Infantry in Camp Geiger located near Camp Lejeune, N.C. The course is due to start Tuesday. Among the course’s various physical trials is a series of four demanding hikes beginning at 5 kilometers and increasing to 10, 15 and finally 20 kilometers.

Movie Reviews By Jeri Jacquin, Movie Maven Coming to theatres this week from director Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros. Pictures comes a ride like no other when you are dealing with GRAVITY.

This film tells the story of astronauts Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) who are in space working outside a satellite making repairs. Their routine fix becomes a bit more complicated when word comes from mission control (Ed Harris) that there has been an explosion in space that is causing a domino effect.

The debris is widespread and heading in there direction. With literally a moments warning the space junk hits the ship and everyone is sent flying. Stone is ejected and Kowalski is her only hope. It will take skill and calm for these two astronauts to find a way to survive and get back to Earth before their time and air runs out.

Final word:

Bullock as Stone is totally intense. Once again she proves why audiences love her performances. She is solid and when moments of weakness happen the character is even more beautiful to experience. This could not have been an easy role because her costar (besides Clooney) is deep space and an abundance of siEDUCATION

lence! Clooney is the mild comic relief and probably the reason I remembered to NOT hold my breath! His performance is so necessary and although not a big role as one might think – it is gracious and endearing none-the-less. Other cast include: Paul Sharma as Shariff, Amy Warren as Explorer Captain and Basher Savage as the Russian Space Station Captain.

Tubs of Popcorn:

I give GRAVITY three and a half tubs of popcorn out of five. The cinematography is genius with scenes where the camera never leaves the action.

These one shots bring the audience into the tension whether you want to or not! The story is riveting and the performances stellar. Be prepared for the feeling of being in space and a story that will carry you through till the end. Director Cuaron is a name you might recognize with HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN as well as CHILDREN OF MEN. The film GRAVITY will no doubt be on many awards list as the season approaches! In the end – don’t let go.


‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ By Jeri Jacquin, Movie Maven Opening in theatres this week is the next installment in family fun in CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2. Literally picking up where the first film left off Flint (Bill Hader) has left town to seek employment. Landing a job with his idol Chester V (Will Forte), Flint is sent to clean up the island. Upon his return he discovers that things are a little different than he thought. His machine is still operating and making food monsters like crazy tacodiles and pickles and cute little strawberries! Along with Sam (Anna Faris), Earl Devereaux (Terry Crews) and Steve (Neil Patrick Harris) they must stop the craziness and save the world one food group at a time. CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS was such a huge success among kids and their families that it

only made sense to bring a new story back to the screen. Having the opportunity to chat with both directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn turned out to be just as much fun as the film! Tell me about wanting to get involved with the film once again? Cody: I really loved working on the CLOUDY, cont’d. on Page 19

EATING BUGS By Andrew Tarantola Gizmodo.com Whaddya mean you didn’t chow down on cicada during this summer’s mass emergence? You’d be surprised how delicious those little creepycrawlies are with a bit of salt and vinegar. Besides, if you had, you’d have gotten a head start on our inevitable bug-eating future. With a rapidly growing population already nearing seven billion humans, our current methods of farming large livestock (read: cattle) are simply insufficient to feed us all. Instead, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization has begun advocating an interesting solution. In an exhaustive report published this past May, the report states, “It is widely accepted that by 2050 the world will host 9 billion people. To accommodate this number, current food production will need to almost double. We need to find new ways of growing food.”

That new way is entomophagy, the practice of raising insects as food.

A Ready Precedent

No, don’t scrunch up your nose in disgust. People in 80 percent of the world’s countries—roughly two billion in all— already eat more than 1,400 different species of arthropod. Thirty years ago, Westerners thought sushi was disgusting; before that it was shrimp, and before that oysters. Not only do we love those foods now, they’re considered premium items. So why can’t we get over eating shrimp that just happen to be on land? Outside of most first-world countries, eating insects is really common, ubiquitous even. Native tribes the world over have been consuming insects for millenia. In fact, coprolite analysis (that’s fossilized feces, by the way) from American and Mexican caves has revealed that our early ancestors

routinely consumed a number of insect species—ants, beetle larvae, lice, ticks, and mites—well before we attained the technology to hunt or farm. These ancient traditions are now carried on throughout Latin America, Asia, and Africa. North America, too, if you count the 200 million pounds of lobster and 300 million pounds of crab that Americans consume annually.

Cont’d. from Page 13 land as beef—they’re a pretty excellent source of protein and fat as well. 100 grams of crickets, for instance, contains 12.9g of protein and 5.5g of unsaturated fat. The same portion of grasshoppers has 20.6g of protein and 6g of fat, while that amount of lean sirloin comes with 30.5g of protein and 5.8g of fat. Opening up your diet to bugs gives you a huge range of options, as well. Giant water beetles are a popular choice in Thailand; a single serving contains nearly 20g of protein, 8.3g of fat, and the insects reportedly emit a delicious smell as they cook. Red ants are also a popular choice, especially dry roasted; a 100g serving includes 13.9 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fat. That’s half the protein of a serving of Atlantic Salmon (25g) but it’s also less than half the amount of fat (8.13g). On the other end of the dietary scale are caterpillars. These grubs contain up to 55g of protein and 30 grgms of fat per 100 gram serving. That certainly won’t help your diet, but they taste delicious deep fried. So now that your mouth is undoubtably watering at the prospect, you’re probably wondering where to get some for yourself. But it’s not like you can just jog down to Whole Foods and buy a bag of bugs. Luckily, there are a more than a few farms around the country that are willing to deliver a wriggly mass to your door. But what if you want an arthropodbased dish designed specifically for the human palate and you can’t bring yourself to grasshopper genocide? You’ll want to peruse the selection of unique insects from Thailand Unique. The online retailer offers everything from snake whiskey to oven baked tarantula to chocolate covered silkworm pupae. The only problem is that many of the offerings are routinely out of stock. If you’re looking for a gourmet meal rather than cricket popcorn, there are several cookbooks available to help you out such as Creepy Crawly Cuisine: The Gourmet Guide to Edible Insects, Entertaining With Insects, or: The Original Guide to Insect Cookery, and Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects.

Cont’d. from Page 12 first film with Chris and really wanted to continue the story. Kris: We had a lot of ideas in the first film that we didn’t get to realize so this was our opportunity to come back into the world of Cloudy and fulfill some of those dreams. Did you feel as if you wanted the film to slide from the first right into the second storyline? Cody: We had a whole monster movie ending for the first CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS that had to be cut for time reasons. The idea of starting the movie literally sixty seconds after the first film was a really a good idea for us. Kris: We had scenes that I was yearning to finish. Did you see the reaction at Comic Con to the trailer of the film – just the trailer! Kris: It was really exciting! Cody: I had to breathe, drink a lot of water and relax. When 7,000 people were screaming as a title came across the screen that had to be amazing for you? Cody: That was actually pretty awesome. I was actually sitting in the front row dead center in Hall H and I was a little deaf from the screaming. Kris: We were in the loading dock right before that among celebrities so I think I was a little in shock in the presence of so many stars like Peter Dinklage. It was pretty cool though. Creating the monsters, because they really aren’t monsters, how did you come up with those incredible names? Cody: It was Lewis Carroll who came up with the two-word idea for names. So for us it was like watermelon and elephant is a watamelaphant. Chris and I had done some drawings of how we thought they would look and told the designers what we were looking for. Kris: They came back with 200 drawings of these creatures. There was a buffet of fun.

A tS

slipped quietly into the garage to hook the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. There was snow mixed with the rain and the wind was blowing 50 mph. I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad throughout the day. I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. There I cuddled up to my wife’s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.” She sleepily replied, “Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that mess.”

I’ll use my lifeline please

One night after watching “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” a man and his wife went to bed and the man was getting very frisky. He asked his wife if she was in the mood. His wife answered, “Not tonight dear, I have a headache.” The man replied, “Is that your final answer?” She said “Yes.” “OK, then I’d like to phone a friend.” he replied.


She married and had 13 children. Her husband died. She married again and had 7 more children. Again, her husband died. But, she remarried and this time had 5 more children. Alas, she finally died. Standing before her coffin, the preacher prayed for her. He thanked the Lord for this very loving woman and said, Lord, they’re finally together. One mourner leaned over and quietly asked her friend, “Do you think he means her first, second or third husband?” The friend replied, “I think he means her legs.”

Family values

Two guys were discussing popular family trends on sex, marriage, and values. Stuart said, “I didn’t sleep with my wife before we got married, did you?” Leroy replied, “I’m not sure, what was her maiden name?”

Are you nuts?

A salesman knocks at the door of a home and it’s answered by a 12-year-old boy with a cigar in one hand and a half empty bottle of scotch in the other and a Playboy magazine under his arm.. The salesman asks the boy, “Excuse me son but is your mom or dad in?” To which the boy replies, “What mental hospital did you escape from?”

Migraine headaches

The doctor said, “Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.” Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He couldn’t concentrate long enough to answer, but decided he had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was miss-

ing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He saw a men’s clothing store and thought, “That’s what I need… a new suit.” He entered the shop and told the salesman, “I’d like a new suit.” The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, “Let’s see... size 44 long.” Joe laughed, “That’s right, how did you know?” “Been in the business 60 years!” Joe tried on the suit. It fit perfectly. As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about a new shirt?” Joe thought for a moment and then said, “Sure.” The salesman eyed Joe and said, “Let’s see, 34 sleeve and 16-1/2 neck.” Again, Joe was surprised, “That’s right, how did you know?” “Been in the business 60 years!” “How about new shoes?” Joe was on a roll and said, “Sure.” The salesman eyed Joe’s feet and said, “Let’s see ... 9-1/2 E.” Joe was astonished, “That’s right, how did you know?” Been in the business 60 years!” Joe tried on the shoes and they fit perfectly. Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, “How about some new underwear?” Joe thought for a second and said, “Sure.” The salesman stepped back, eyed Joe’s waist and said, “Let’s see... size 36.” Joe laughed. “Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn size 34 since I was 18 years old.” The salesman shook his head, “You can’t wear a size 34. A size 34 underwear would press your testicles up

against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.”

Redneck crash

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged it had covertly funded a project with the American auto makers for the past five years, whereby the auto makers were installing black box voice recorders in pick-up trucks. This was done in an effort to determine, when accidents occurred, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash. They were surprised to find in northern states, the last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of crashes were, “Oh, s---!” and in the southern states 89.3 percent of the final words were... “Hold my beer and watch this!”

Cookie Monster All O.J. Simpson wanted was a few extra cookies in his prison cell. Now he’s in the news as a punchline once again. The former Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame running back grabbed a few extra cookies after lunch the other day,according to the Daily Mail. No big

deal, who hasn’t done that before? The big problem for Simpson is he’s locked up on a 33-year sentence for his role in an armed robbery in Las Vegas, and the guards don’t take too kindly to stealing sweets from the cafeteria line. The Daily Mail said guards noticed something under Simpson’s prison

clothes as he went back to his cell. Was it some banned item? Something dangerous? Nope, a dozen oatmeal cookies. “O.J. just stood there with a goofy grin on his face as the guard kept digging inside his shirt and throwing the cookies on the floor,” a source told The National Enquirer, according to the


ARE YOU A VETERAN planning to buy or

The VA loan program is a flexible solution designed to make homeownership more affordable for you

Daily Mail. Just to pile on a bit, the Daily Mail wrote Simpson is looking “noticeably tubby,” and doctors told him to lay off fatty and sugary foods because he suffers from severe diabetes. “(W)hen the guard started pulling cookies out of O.J.’s shirt, the other inmates started laughing so hard they nearly fell over,” the source told the Daily Mail. Simpson was let off with a warning by the guards, the story said. The Daily Mail story on Simpson said the “only enjoyment he has left” is eating his favorite foods. For those who think that Simpson was involved in the slayings of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994, despite him famously being found not guilty, the story of him having his cookies taken away in prison probably won’t draw much sympathy.

CHARGERS Dwight Freeney sets REPORT example on and off the gridiron By Art Garcia In a sport where each year you are employed you have to fend off competitors vying for your job, you often find veterans unwilling to mentor fellow players (see Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers). However, there are veterans out there who, despite entering the twilight of their career, are secure enough in their ability that they have no problem offering their wisdom to a teammate playing the same position. For seven-time Pro Bowler Dwight Freeney, passing his knowledge of the game onto other player has never been a problem. Freeney recently sat down with MP reporter Art Garcia Jr. to answer

a few questions about this 2013 season. AG: It’s been 12 years for you playing in the NFL, does it feel that long? DF: It doesn’t, it really doesn’t. Sometimes the body might feel like it, but mentally it really doesn’t. Time flies when you’re having fun doing what you’re doing – it’s all like yesterday to me in my mind when I was a rookie coming into the league where I was just trying to establish myself to be whoever I wanted to be. AG: As a rookie, what was the best

advice someone gave you about the league whether it be another player, a family member or a mentor? DF: Oh, just to know that every time you went out on the field that’s part of your resume. Whether you are on this team or you are released by another team, it’s what you put out there on the field because it will always be there, it gets archived. It’s going to be part of your resume, so therefore you need to go out there and show the world when you’re on camera who you want to be; how you want to be looked at and how you want to be perceived. AG: I would think that holds true especially now because of social media with all of the cameras, microphones, cell phones and twitter accounts that can be seen globally? DF: Exactly because now there is more coverage (of athletes) than ever. But for me, it was just while I’m on that field I want to represent myself in a certain way – especially for kids (to show them) this is how you play the game. AG: After playing 11 years with the Colts, what is your thought on this Chargers team that brought you in as a free agent? DF: I’m really excited… you have a lot of talent on this team; a lot of young energy; a new coaching staff (mixed) with an older coaching staff.

here and we have some young, new talent here so it’s a great little combo and done right, we could be really dangerous. AG: This defense has Eric Weddle and a lot of young talent in guys like Donald Butler, Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes. With the accolades attached to your name, do automatically assume a leadership role or do you leave that to the veterans like Weddle and Jarret Johnson who are already here? DF: Well I think it comes with the territory. I think the longer you’ve been in the game, the longer you’ve been here… it’s not an accident. It happened because you have probably done things the right way and you gain all this knowledge not to just keep to yourself, it’s to share and to pass on and that’s what has kind of happened over the years with me. Talking with older guys over the years who have retired like Richard Dent and Bruce Smith, I’ll see them around and they’ll give me a little sprinkle of knowledge and I’ll share it with a guy here. It’s just that you have all this knowledge for what? When you’re done what are you going to do? So you just pass it on. AG: Heading into last season the

consensus of both the pundits and fans was that the Colts would have a down year trying to rebuild after losing Peyton Manning, yet you guys went 11-5 and earned a trip to the playoffs. Do you see any similarities between that team and this Chargers team who many feel is a rebuilding team as well? DF: Yeah I think there is because we seem to be flying under the radar and there aren’t a lot of high expectations for this team and that’s okay. It’s not for anyone outside this locker room… they can count, judge or write any article or whatever, but it will have no effect on what is actually going to happen. I think the more we understand that the better we’ll be as a team. It’s all about the 53-man roster and guys making a decision to go out there and play the best we possibly can together – and the results of that will be the results of that. As far as outside the locker room, it shouldn’t have any effect on what happens this season.

1948 Woody

By Charlie Crowell In their day, wooden bodied station wagons were work horses. Considered unattractive and strictly utilitarian, they were produced in low numbers. Then after a half century of production, they were gone, discontinued, largely because they were so difficult to manufacture and maintain. Yet today, they can sell for more than a house and are considered classic beauties. Sometime in the late 19th century, a forgotten mechanic fastened a primitive engine to a horse drawn wagon creating the first horseless wagon. The details have been lost to history but from that humble beginning, a style of automobile was born, one that still exercises influence upon us over 100 years later. Just into the 20th century, furniture makers began making “woodies” as a sideline to their businesses. They would purchase an automobile without a body, and build a body from wood. These custom vehicles were often set up like small buses and were commonly used by resorts to transport guest to and from railroad depots. They weren’t called woodies back then. Rather, they were known as “depot hacks.” In the horse-drawn days, a “hack” was a wagon. Some woodies went upscale and became favorites of the wealthy. Sometimes referred to as estate cars, they would gain popularity with “county gentlemen” who owned large rural estates. Eventually auto manufacturers began producing their own versions. Ford introduced the first production woodie in 1929. Throughout the 30’s most other manufacturers joined in, usually with very limited success, Some lesser known car makers only produced a prototype or two. The largest car company at the time, Chevrolet, waited until 1939 before they introduced their first woodie.

Cont’d. from Page 22 the Los Angeles Lakers in part due to dissatisfaction with what he perceived to be Mike D’Antoni’s fast-paced offense, even though the stats suggested that he got the ball in the low post as much as could reasonably be expected. If the Rockets go with something akin to the same system they utilized in the 2012-13 season, it’s possible that Howard will actually find more reason to be upset with his new squad. In fact, D’Antoni has even predicted that Howard will dislike it. For now, it appears as if the Rockets are not going to appease Howard at any cost. In an interview with Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, head coach Kevin McHale says that he does not anticipate his team playing a significantly slower tempo this season.

Entry Price: $26,295 Price as Tested: $28,295 excitement in 2008 complete with an optional R/T model and a modern 5.7 Hemi V8. (I’m not counting those 19781983 foreign car Mitsubishi Galant Challengers in between). For those who didn’t grow up in the 1960s and 1970s, “392” is the nomenclature for the legendary 392 cubic inch Hemi engine that powered many gas and fuel dragster drivers into drag racing immortality. Back then, competition on the street came from Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, AMC Javelin/AMX, Plymouth Barracuda and Pontiac Firebird/Trans-Am. Today, it’s just Mustang, Challenger and Camaro that have survived and or reintroduced. Our Challenger’s base came in at just $26,295, but the aforementioned final tally, thanks to the year-end discounts, brings SXT into a “doable buy” for both “baby boomers” and “Generation X” enthusiasts. Options on our tester include a $300 Park Sense rear park assist, $195 Sirius XM Satellite with a year sub and a $450 Boston Acoustics sound group upgrade. Delivery is $995. As for transferring power, a fivespeed “Auto Stick” automatic comes standard and is the only transmission available. Down the road, look for Dodge to perhaps move to at least a six-speed since Chrysler is already producing 8-speed automatics in the Charger and 300 line. Our tester’s 18 city and 27 highway EPA numbers will surely increase, but for now and through 2014, it’s still the five-speed automatic. (A six speed manual is available with Hemi engines, but the automatic delivers better MPG). Outwardly, Challenger’s long hood and short rear deck keep the retro shape intact. All Challengers are reardrive and may not be best suited for snow storms. However, nowadays snow tires with spikes offer acceptable traction. Underneath, a fully independent suspension and four wheel ABS discs help keep Challenger pointed the right way. We like Dodge Challenger very much. If you buy a leftover, you’ll save big over the 2014 prices for basically the same vehicle. Still, regardless of V8 or V6 for power, Dodge Challenger is one of the best looking retro cars out there.
