Welcome to The Rim Review. Gosh! The first month of 2012 is already gone! That’s hard to believe. Hope the New Year has been good to you and hope you enjoyed January’s editions of The Rim Review. We are starting February with a feature on the Hashknife Pony Express riders who will be thundering into town next Wednesday. We thank Carol McCauley for writing the article, which is illustrated with photos from the Hashknife’s visits over the last few years. Elsewhere in the Review you will find historian Tim Ehrhardt’s column. His

topic in this issue is on what he believes are the 10 most important events in Rim Country history over the past 100 years… though he doesn’t go back quite 100 years in his “countdown.” Since this is the first edition of the Review for February, you will also find Simone Lake’s inspirational column, Firm Foundation. Ken Brooks outlines some great sounding tours to consider in 2012 in his Travel Talk column. Recipes in this edition are all about setting up a great bash for the big game on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Humorous answers for the guilt-plagued Northeast Arizona author and speaker Jo Russell answers the question, “How Can I Put the Guilt Gene In Its Place?” in a short, humorous talk at 11 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 4, at Oasis Christian Books and Gifts, 512 S. Beeline Highway, Payson. Russell will be signing “Which Button Do You Push to Get God to Come Out? A Humorous Devotional for Women” from 10 a.m. to noon, also at Oasis. “As a longtime Christian author and teacher, I read several thousand devotionals a year. By adding laughter and a light touch, I made these fun,” Russell said. She added that nearly all Christian guides are illustrated with husband-wifekids stories. “That leaves single parents, widows and the unmarried feeling downright invisible! That’s why I used stories to span the generations, including the unmarried.” Russell raised her twin sons from diapers to adulthood as a single parent while working as a full-time educator. She used 14 humorous classroom stories in the 15week study. Debora Coty, award-winning author of “Too Blessed to Be Stressed” and “Mom NEEDS Chocolate” writes about “Which Button Do You Push to Get God to Come Out,” “I love this devo! Using LOL (laughout loud) personal experiences, author Jo Russell skillfully weaves Scripture into the craziness of real life and encourages the reader to apply Biblical principles to her own harried everyday life.” Russell has won in a number of national writing contests for her humorous stories, has had scores of magazine and newspaper articles published, and contributed to “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” “Shaping the New You” and “Heavenly Humor for the Dieter’s Soul.” Russell authors a humorous weekly blog on

Several tour operators have prepared wonderful itineraries for travel to North America as well as Europe for this spring, summer and fall. We’ll discuss a few here. Tauck Tours is one of the most respected operators in the U.S. and they have put together some highlights of various areas of the U.S. and Canada that I will mention. GRAND CANADIAN ROCKIES

Their Grand Canadian Rockies tour is especially interesting since it encompasses some of the most scenic destinations one can find in North America. On this tour you will first fly to the most beautiful city on our continent, Vancouver, B.C. Upon arrival you will be transferred to the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel to begin KEN BROOKS your adventure. Water, majestic mountains and colorful parks surround Vancouver. The next day the tour takes a ferry to Victoria Island to see the waterfront with its collection of fishing boats and yachts. Then, board a coach and be driven to the famed Butchart Gardens just outside of town. From there, it’s back to the waterfront and the Princess Hotel where you will enjoy a formal British afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel with an overnight stay. Next day it’s back to Vancouver for some sightseeing, then that night board VIA Rail Canada’s “The Canadian” train to take you to the Rocky Mountains. I have done this several times and never tire of the beauty the region offers. You will spend the night and part of the next day on the train as it winds its way northeast. Tauck Tours have reserved space for the group in one of the train’s vista dome cars so you can enjoy and photograph the amazing scenery passing by your windows. Rugged, tall mountains framing valleys with rivers running through them is only part of the pleasure. All your meals on the train are included. You will have private room accommodations with facilities to enjoy. The lounge cars on the train are yours to use. After crossing the Continental Divide into Alberta you will arrive for a two-night stay at the Park Lodge on the shores of Lac Beauvert. Now, a day in Jasper National Park is scheduled to be mostly free with tennis courts, golf, hiking and swimming and other activities that are available for your pleasure. This night, enjoy dinner at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. The Icefield Parkway is scheduled for the next day —

this road links Jasper and Lake Louise. It is one of North America’s most scenic highways. As your coach winds its way through snow-domed peaks, you may see elk, deer, bighorn sheep or bears. The Columbia Icefields highway passes by one of the largest masses of ice outside the Arctic Circle. You will stay this night at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the heart of Banff. After breakfast, your coach will take you through the stunning scenery of the Bow River Valley. You will be photographing almost every mile this day. On day number nine, you will enjoy rafting on the Bow River and are given time to explore museums, shops and assorted culture of the area. Then, this evening join the other tour members for a farewell dinner. The last day will be spent driving from Banff to the city of Calgary for your flight home. If I were to put together a western Canada with the Rockies tour itinerary I could not have done a better job than that which Tauck Tours is offering this year. For more information, call them at 1-800-468-2825 and request a brochure. Have you ever had the yearning to see polar bears in their natural surroundings in Manitoba, Canada? Tauck Tours will take you there in October and November. Upon arrival you are given a lecture on what to expect, then board a flight north to Churchill positioned on Hudson Bay. Once there, you will check into your hotel and the next day begin exploring in an all-terrain vehicle to view the bears and other wild life. You will probably witness young bears wrestling and experience some dog sledding. You can visit an Eskimo Museum and hear fascinating accounts of their daily life. Following, you will return to Winnipeg transferring to your flight home. Polar bears are a rather rare sight anywhere and to see them in their natural surroundings is very special. EUROPE

How about a classical tour of Europe? Several tour companies offer this and your travel agent can assist your planning by giving you brochures to take home and digest. Some tours begin in Paris where you will meet your tour director and enjoy dinner the first night with the group of travelers you will be with for the next several days. Your tour director will outline what you will experience and impart tips that will help make the trip a little easier. Your first day in Paris will probably include sightseeing the Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Opera House, Cathedral Notre Dame and the River Seine. Perhaps that night will include a dinner aboard a riverboat sailing through the City of Light.

From Paris your tour might pick up several itineraries. Perhaps next go to Switzerland for all its scenic pleasures, then down into Italy for stops at Florence, Rome and Venice. Italy always amazes me with its charm, historical landmarks, beauty and many points of interest. We were in Italy three months ago and we could renew our love for Florence as well as Rome. These are but two cities among several that are worth time in visiting museums and the general daily life of Italians. Try their cuisine, as it is sometimes quite different than American Italian food. While you are in Europe, you might select a tour that also includes Monaco and Nice. They are very close together on the Riviera and worth the time you will spend there. These areas are quite up-scale and it is interesting to see how the upper class enjoy vacations. You might be inclined to choose a tour that encompasses both Portugal and Spain. They are easy to enjoy together and have many, many interesting areas to explore. You have Madrid and Barcelona as leading cities of Spain and you can also include Granada and Seville. In Portugal you can enjoy Lisbon with its many historical sights and friendly people and then go inland for more local interest. May is a good time to visit these two countries because it is before the hot weather sets in. In fact, most of Europe is rather hot and humid during the summer months so keep that in mind when planning your trip. You might wish to first fly to London and tour England before moving on to Ireland and Scotland. After seeing Great Britain, you can take the Chunnel Train to Paris and begin your European tour there.


The Baltic region is becoming very popular and perhaps the best way to enjoy this area is a cruise out of England. You would probably visit Russia, Poland, Germany and some Scandinavian countries on one of these cruises. The highlight will be St. Petersburg with all its museums, castles and canals. I strongly suggest overseas vacations to be either escorted tours or cruises. Both entities will look after you and offer suggestions as to where to visit on your own and keep you out of trouble. Popular destinations remain Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and river cruises in Europe and the United States. You could probably travel for two years without stopping and still have places you wish to visit. It’s a big, wide world and yours for the taking. Have a ball!

A game plan for your game-day bash Not everyone can score tickets to the big game, but anyone can throw a big game bash to watch it with friends and family. To help you avoid making rookie party planning mistakes, Kellogg has partnered with pro running back LaDainian Tomlinson of the New York Jets to help you score points at your big game bash. “I know how tough it can be to please everybody, both on the field and off,” said Tomlinson. “But with some good strategy, you can plan a great party that puts a smile on everybody’s face.” MAKE A PARTY PLAYBOOK

• Crunch the numbers: Count on guests each eating between 8 to 12 servings of appetizers over a two-hour period. Plan on two nonalcoholic drinks per guest during the first hour, and one for each hour after that. Buy about a pound of ice per guest for drinks. • Tackle the food prep early: Make as much of the food ahead of time as you can. Peel, chop and prep veggie trays a day or two in advance. Dips and desserts can be made the day before. If you’ll be making anything in a slow cooker, prep all your ingredients in advance as well, so that all you have to do when you wake up is put them in the cooker and turn it on. SACK BORING SNACKS

• Stock up on all-star ingredients: Make sure you have plenty of the things your team really likes. Crowdpleasers like Cheez-It, Town House Flipside crackers, Keebler cookies, and Rice Krispie Treats make adults and kids alike happy, and they can be used as ingredients in other dishes, too. • Run a surprise play: Try a new recipe like these Spicy Touchdown Tenders. They get a surprising, crunchy kick from Cheez-It Hot & Spicy crackers. Serve them with some Buffalo sauce and they’ll be the MVPs of your party. RECRUIT A GREAT TEAM

• Call on your special teams: If you want a great dessert, but don’t bake, ask your baking friends to work their magic for the party. Get the resident chili expert to make his best, and let your friend the decor expert set the scene. They’ll enjoy working in their zones, and you get a few things taken off your to-do list. • Let the Pee Wee League play, too: Get the kids involved with party prep. Older ones can help you make food and younger ones can set out utensils, cups and plates. You can appoint some special “Trash Referees” to patrol the party and help clean up plates and cups during the game, so there’s not a big mess to clean up afterward.

Two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are losing weight and eating healthier. But by the time the big game rolls around, many people are ready for a break — or looking for an excuse to cheat. But kickoff

Spicy Touchdown Tenders

7 Layer Fiesta Ranch Dip

does not have to be a signal to punt your healthy-eating habits. Registered dietitian Jodie Shield knows it can be a struggle to celebrate and stay healthy. She’s put together some win-win tips and healthy and delicious recipes that are sure to keep fans cheering for more: • Know your game plan. If you’re the home team (i.e. the party host), you get to call the plays. Serve entrees that are lean and festive, such as Touchdown Turkey Chili. Or prepare a thin whole wheat crust pizza using reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and lots of sliced veggies. • Offer a starting lineup of healthier appetizers. Whip some traditional game day favorites into shape. Instead of nachos, serve baked chips with salsa. Pass on the salt and butter and sprinkle a dash of Parmesan cheese over popcorn. Forget the fried chicken wings and serve baked chicken tenders seasoned with Hidden Valley Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix. • Think fresh. Skip the super subs and set up a sandwich bar with lean deli meats such as turkey breast and ham, low-fat cheese slices and prepped veggies — like sliced tomato and shredded lettuce — and low-fat toppings. • Pass on super big portions. No matter what foods are served, remember you don’t have to eat the whole thing. Grab a small plate and load half of it up with fresh veggies and baked chips. • Get in on the action. During halftime, grab your guests and head outdoors for a quick game of touch football. You can always record the commercials so you don’t miss out.

Immediately open the bag and pour the popcorn into a large serving bowl. Spray the popcorn with three sprays from the olive oil mister, toss with salad dressing and seasoning mix and then toss with the Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

“No need to pass on fabulous dips to maintain your diet,” said Shield. “Thanks to the protein and fiber in chickpeas, hummus is light, yet heart-healthy enough to satisfy hungry sports fans. Try this easy recipe for happy game day guests.”

HOLD THAT LINE HUMMUS DIP Preparation time: 10 minutes; makes: 8 (1/4 cup) servings 2 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) chickpeas, rinsed and drained 4 garlic cloves 1/3 cup lemon juice 1 package Hidden Valley Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix 4 tablespoons cold water 1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste) Dash of paprika for garnish In a food processor, puree the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, salad dressing and seasoning mix and water until very smooth, about 3 minutes. Add tahini paste and process an additional 2 minutes. Spread hummus into a shallow serving bowl. Sprinkle top with paprika.


The best way to tackle those creamy, high-calorie dips is to make smart substitutions. Here are a few options to help you get started: Instead of guacamole, use salsa Instead of pesto, use chopped tomatoes and basil Instead of sour cream, use plain fat-free yogurt Instead of cheese, use reduced-fat cheese Instead of cream, use fat-free evaporated milk For more recipes and tips, visit Source: Hidden Valley



Ten occurrences that had an impact With the Arizona Centennial less than a month away, there seem to be a lot of lists out there, some of which are extremely interesting. So, I thought I’d give it a shot, with 10 occurrences in the past 100 years that have had a major impact of this area. ZANE GREY COMES TO THE AREA

When Zane Grey decided to visit the area in 1918 to hunt and learn about the Pleasant Valley War, locals could not have had any idea of the impact that he would have on the region. He wrote numerous stories from his place underneath the Rim, which led to many movies of these stories being filmed here. Even after his death in 1939, he continued to have an impact as his cabin under the Rim was TIM EHRHARDT restored, leading to the term “Zane Grey Country” to describe the area. Many folks have come here after reading his stories and Grey’s legacy lives on at his rebuilt cabin in Payson’s Green Valley Park. CAMP GERONIMO ESTABLISHED

In my opinion, this might be one of the more underrated events in the region. They didn’t have to set up camp here in the 1920s, but when they did, they started a tradition that continues to this day. Did Zane Grey have an impact on that decision? Perhaps. It got people in the habit of coming up here to camp, a tradition that continues to this day. Remember, kids with fond memories of their childhood tend to want to return to those places and I think Camp Geronimo helped the stage for future growth in the region. THE COMPLETION OF THE BEELINE HIGHWAY

It took nearly six years for the paving of the Beeline Highway to be finished in 1958, but it was worth the wait for the area. It set the region up for future growth, making it far easier to get from the Phoenix area to Rim Country. This area had been left out of major transportation lines, as its long held hopes for a railroad connection never materialized. The Beeline was a game-changer. FOUR LANES FROM PAYSON TO PHOENIX

When I was growing up I remember many highway delays. Sure, it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it was before the Beeline was paved, but it still wasn’t good. If you didn’t get out of Mesa by 3 p.m. on a summer Friday afternoon, you’d be stuck in traffic. Coming home on Sundays weren’t much better, with tie-ups in the areas where it went from four lanes down to two lanes. This further shortened the time between Phoenix and Payson, making the area that much more attractive to people. THE OX BOW INN

Built in the 1930s, the Ox Bow still stands today as a testament to Payson’s wilder times. It played host to numerous bands and even a brawl or two, situated in the heart of old Payson on Main Street. Clearly this is a place that has had a major impact. PAYSON IS INCORPORATED

It may be hard to believe, but Payson wasn’t incorporated as a town until 1973. Ted Pettet was Payson’s first mayor as the region pushed forward. THE 1990 DUDE FIRE

Located northeast of Payson under the Rim, this

fire began on June 25, 1990 and would end up burning over 25,000 acres and costing six firefighters their lives. It burned Zane Grey’s cabin under the Mogollon Rim and much of some of his favorite hunting grounds. The death of the firefighters led to safer techniques and much study; study which has probably since saved additional lives. SWITZERLAND IN ARIZONA

This Barney Swartwood creation was an anchor of mountain themed developments, in particular Payson North. This hotel, which originally had a restaurant, was a unique piece sitting on Highway 87. It still goes on today, though now it is a Best Western and the exterior has been modified. Nearby though still sit the Swiss Village shops and the subdivisions are home to Payson residents and their unique street names like William Tell, Sherwood, and Luzern. Swartwood was not just a developer, but also

donated the land where the town hall was built. His son Craig served as one of Payson’s mayors and on its town council THE RIM LAKES

This region did not always have lakes on top of the Rim. Today’s Rim Lakes were not developed until the late 1950s and early 1960s. Their presence has had a lasting impact on the region, drawing anglers from all over. THE PASSING OF THE TORCH

Throughout time people pass on, leaving it to future generations to carry the torch. One must reflect upon and respect the old families who first settled this region prior to statehood. Over the past 100 years many changes have occurred, yet these folks carry on the legacies of parents and grandparents in shaping this region.

The Hashknife Pony Express riders will arrive at the Payson post office at approximately 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8. Upon arrival the riders will be available to sign autographs.

PONY EXPRESS The riders are coming! The riders are coming!

Neither rain nor sleet nor dark of night (nor traffic, highway construction or weekenders) shall stay these riders, and their mounts, from their appointed rounds. This year however, is a very special year for this ride. The Hashknife Pony Express ride has been cho-

sen by the State of Arizona as one of the official events to celebrate Arizona’s centennial. The first leg of the 200-mile trip over the Mogollon Rim will start at the Holbrook post office. Each year the Hashknife Pony Express riders receive the oath of office from the Holbrook postmaster authorizing them to carry the U.S. mail by Pony Express. The familiar cry of “Hashknife!” will be heard in the chilled morning of Wednesday, Feb. 8. Members of the Hashknife Pony Express will then mount up for the 54th annual ride of the Hashknife Pony Express. Not all riders will start from Holbrook. Many of the riders will proceed to predetermined stations along the route to wait for a rider to approach to transfer the mailbags. Each rider carries the mailbags for approximately one to two miles at a full gallop. When he connects with the next rider in the relay the receiving rider spurs his mount to take the bags from the hand-off rider without breaking stride. The annual posse route takes the riders from the

Holbrook post office onto Dry Lake Road to Heber and over the Rim for an overnight in Payson. In addition to those who ride the trail and carry the mail, there are numerous support people. The safety of the riders and their mounts is key to the success of this ride. For more than 50 years the Hashknife Pony Express has carried the U.S. mail from Holbrook to Payson to Scottsdale (with outriders going to Pine and Strawberry) under the oldest continuous and official contract with the United States Postal Service. The Hashknife Posse was organized in 1955 as a search and rescue team for the Navajo County Sheriff. In 1957 the posse borrowed the style of the country’s original Pony Express and 27 posse riders carried an invitation to then-governor Paul Fannin to attend the posse’s annual Hashknife Stampede in Holbrook.

Pony Express FROM PAGE 8

That first ride was in March and took 26 hours of straight riding. It was from this ride that the idea of an annual Pony Express ride was born. In 1959 Holbrook postmaster Ernest Hulet helped the posse acquire an official contract with the U.S. Postal Service. This was the birth of the Hashknife Pony Express and it has since become an endearing part of the history of Arizona from Holbrook to Payson to Scottsdale. The athletic ability of these riders and their mounts is a testament to the stamina of the Hashknife as well as the original Pony Express riders team. The riders will arrive at the Payson post office at approximately 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8. There will be entertainment provided by DJ Craig starting at 4 p.m. Upon arrival the riders will be available to sign autographs on posters and bandanas as well as picture taking. Parents, bring the kids out to this event because the Hashknife Pony Express riders will be giving out free Hashknife Centennial bandanas to all children 12 and under. It’s not too late to purchase your official Hashknife mailer to send letters to friends and family anywhere in the world. Hashknife Centennial posters, mailers and bandanas are available for purchase at the post office. Posters and Centennial souvenir coins are available at Bob’s Western Wear at 605 S. Beeline Highway, (928) 474-9586. Hashknife is a non-profit and all proceeds from sales, donations and sponsorships are tax deductible and go toward the mounted search and rescue effort.

Sciatica: Big nerve can be big problem DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 78-year-old woman, and five months ago I came down with sciatica in my left leg underneath the buttock. It’s very painful. I’d like to know if there is something that can be done. — S.M. ANSWER: The sciatic (sigh-ATTIC) nerve is the body’s longest and largest nerve. It springs from nerve rootlets that emerge from the spinal cord in the lower back. Those rootlets intertwine to form this big nerve. It travels from the back, through the buttocks and down the leg to the foot. Anything that presses on or irritates the nerve in its long course gives rise to sciatica (sighATTIC-uh), painful inflammation of the nerve. A bulging back disk can press on the nerve. Arthritic spurs on the spine are another source of irritation. A collapse of a backbone from osteoporosis is another trigger for pain, and the pain can be in the lower back, the buttocks or down the leg to the foot. Have you tried Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain relief? Aleve, Advil, Motrin and the many other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs dull pain and quiet inflammation. Icing the painful back area for 10 to 15 minutes three times a day is another way to numb pain. If ice doesn’t work, turn to heat — hot compresses or a heating pad. Stretching the back might take pressure off the nerve. Sit on a firm chair with feet on the floor and knees shoulder-width apart. Turn slightly to the left. Then, with your right arm dangling down between the knees and left arm dangling down on the outside of the left knee, bend down to the floor as far as you can and hold that position for five seconds. Straighten up and reverse the process by turning to your right and arranging your arms with the right arm outside the right knee and the left arm between the knees. If this exercise hurts, stop. If it doesn’t, perform five bends each, to the right and then to the left. Do the exercise three times a day. Five months is a long time to put up with back pain. I’m not sure if self-treatment will do much for you. You need a doctor’s intervention, along with physical therapy. The booklet on back pain delves more deeply into its causes and treatments. To order a copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 303W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Some time ago, you answered a letter from an 80-year-old lady who asked if

she still needed to have mammograms. I say an unqualified yes. Two years ago, at the age of 82 1/2, my mammogram detected cancer. Surgery was followed by radiation. Two years later, I am feeling fine and doing well. — A.S. ANSWER: Experts argue about the value of mammograms late in life. Stories like yours make me side with those who promote having mammograms as long as a woman is in reasonable health. If a woman has an estimate of living at least four more years, mammograms are a good idea. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I haven’t seen an article about vaginal yeast infections. The doctor gave me an oral antiyeast medicine for it and a cream to apply. In addition, he gave me something to stop the itching. It seemed worse after the treatment, so the doctor gave me five more days of the oral medicine. What would you suggest if it comes back again? Could it be something I am eating or taking? — N.F. ANSWER: Candida is the name of the yeast responsible for vaginal infections. Itching is a prominent sign. The vaginal lining also often is irritated and painful. Intercourse can be uncomfortable. White patches adhere to the vaginal lining, and there may be a white discharge. Close to 75 percent of all women will experience at least one Candida infection during their life. It has nothing to do with what you eat or take. Somewhere between 20 percent and 50 percent of women harbor this yeast in their vagina but don’t have any symptoms of it. If these women are put on an antibiotic for an unrelated infection, the vaginal bacteria that keep the population of Candida at small numbers die off. Without those good bacteria, the Candida yeasts reproduce at a rapid rate and lead to symptoms. You were put on a standard treatment for Candida. Those treatments are antiyeast medicines that come as ointments, creams or vaginal suppositories. There are many of them. The oral antiyeast fluconazole (Diflucan) is another approved treatment. Recurrence of this infection is common and hard to abolish. If it happens, longer treatment with vaginal antiyeast medicines coupled with a weekly dose of oral Diflucan for six months is a reasonable action. If that fails, referral to a center that has the capability to check Candida’s sensitivity to antiyeast medication can end the problem. Unproven but popular ways of attacking this infection include eating yogurt with live lactobacillus in it to repopulate the vagina’s normal bacterial population. Another unproven approach is to treat the male

partner. It hasn’t been shown that such an approach works, but some experts resort to it. Vaginal infections are discussed at length in the booklet on that topic. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 1203W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What can you tell me about hypothyroidism? Does taking iodine help? I hear that taking thyroid hormone is a lifetime commitment. — C.N. ANSWER: Hypothyroidism is a thyroid gland that’s putting out way too little thyroid hormone. All body processes slow. People become weak and are exhausted. They’re cold when others are pleasantly warm. They gain weight without overeating. Their skin dries. The face becomes puffy. The heart beats slowly. Worldwide, iodine deficiency is the main cause of a sluggish thyroid gland. It is not in North America. Here, the main cause is an attack on the gland by the immune system. The appropriate treatment is supplying the hormone in pill form. It usually is a lifelong treatment, but it’s not an onerous one. It’s taking only one pill a day. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is very nearsighted and has to wear thick glasses. I’m not. I don’t wear glasses at age 50. We have four children. What are their chances of having to wear glasses? — E.P. ANSWER: Nearsightedness (myopia) indicates that the eyes can see things that are near. Nearsighted eyes don’t see distant objects clearly. It’s a common eye condition, and genetic involvement in it is high. If one parent is nearsighted, the children have a 24 percent chance of also being nearsighted. If both parents are nearsighted, the children’s risk increases to 48 percent. If neither parent is affected, the children have an 8 percent chance of developing nearsightedness. Factors other than genes have to be at work. (Don’t believe these percentages with unquestioning acceptance. I don’t.) Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

BEATING HEART What determines and verifies that a person is alive? The heart. The most important organ in our body! This hardworking organ works 24 hours, 7 days a week till the day we die. The human heart beats and pumps blood throughout the entire body as well as delivering oxygen to the brain and all the other organs in our bodies. How thankful we are that it never takes a vacation! If the heart does have probSIMONE LAKE lems, diseases, poison, etc., one might consider getting a heart transplant. A heart transplant consists of removing the heart from a suitable deceased donor and giving this “new” heart to a recipient in desperate need. The recipient must undergo all kinds of tests and evaluations to make sure they are mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and physically able to make good use of a new heart. The purpose of the rigid testing is to ensure that the new heart is the perfect match and the transplant a success. Jeremiah, one of the Old Testament authors, was very concerned about heartbeats too. He was known for being heartbroken with a heartbreaking message. But instead of the physical heartbeat of earthy life, his focus was the spiritual heartbeat of eternal life. This prophet’s daily job was to declare the words of God to people that were stubborn and rebellious. His greatest plea was to revive spiritual hearts that stopped beating and instead, encourage others to have a “change of heart” and join God in His holy heartbeat. Instead of doing things on their own and ending up in utter destruction to instead bow the knee to Almighty God. In chapter 24 of Jeremiah, God says “I will give them a heart to know that I am the LORD, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.” This tells of the great need the people had of a new heart, new attitude and new behavior. This also tells of the great need of God’s love because of His willingness to give us a new heart. His promise of this very thing declares loud volumes of God’s love for His people. John, the author in the New Testament, states that: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” So we know that God loves us, but the root of the problem is not whether

God loves us, but rather do we love Him? Do we love Him enough to follow after Him? Do we love Him enough to do what He says? Do we love Him NOT to hurt and grieve His heart? God the great physician knows that we are unable to give ourselves a heart transplant, so in His incredible grace and mercy, does it for us, guaranteeing a high success rate. Questions 1) Would you acknowledge that you need a heart transplant? 2) Would you make a decision to seek after God’s heart? 3) Would you allow the Lord to turn your heart towards His, beating in unison with His? If you replied yes to any of the above questions, I invite you to say this prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I admit that my heart needs to be transformed, that I need a new heart and you are the only one that can give me a new one. Please come and transform me to have a heart that beats in unison with yours. I seek to do the things that are pleasing to you and not me. Help me to surrender my life to you and serve you all of my days. Amen UPCOMING EVENTS

You’re less likely to get sun dried with tomatoes BY SAMANTHA WEAVER KING FEATURES 2012

• In 2008, a study was conducted in the United Kingdom to determine what, if any, effect the consumption of tomatoes had on the human body’s reaction to sun exposure. The university students enrolled in the study who consumed the equivalent of about five tomatoes per day were 33 percent less likely to get sunburned than those who ate no tomatoes. • Despite all the cartoons you’ve seen throughout your life, rabbits generally prefer greens to carrots, and mice would rather eat grains and fruit than cheese. • The area that is now the state of California had a population of about 700 in 1854. In 2010, the population had increased to 37,253,956. In the span of just over one and a half centuries, the population increased a whopping 53,000 times. • Rice paper is not made from rice.

It’s made from the pith of the rice paper plant. • You may be surprised to learn that, according to the National Sleep Foundation, 33 percent of all preschoolers have a TV in their room, and 20 percent of infants and toddlers have one. • If you’re a schoolteacher in Arkansas, you should be aware of an arcane law there: If you bob your hair, you’ll be ineligible for a pay raise. • The town of Adamant, Vermont, was once named Sodom. The townspeople voted to change the name in 1905. • The first portable computer was made available to the public in 1975. In this instance, however, “portable” was used as a relative term; the IBM 5100 weighed 55 pounds. • Only 5 percent of American men report that they feel satisfied with their looks. With women, it’s only 1 percent.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You don’t like rejection. But instead of trying to “ram” your ideas through to an unreceptive audience, stand back and wait for a more favorable environment later this month. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Job commitments call for the tidy Taurean to charge into those problem-plagued projects and get them into shape. Then go ahead and enjoy the fun and friendships of your expanding social life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The pressures of the workplace are beginning to ease. While you still need to stay connected to your ongoing commitments, you’ll be able to take more time to relax with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel that you need to prove how much you can do. But be careful not to take on more than you can handle, or you risk being bogged down. An Aries has a message for you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Financially it could be a little tight for a while. So resist the urge to splurge on things you don’t really need. There will be time enough to indulge yourself when the money squeeze eases later this month. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You demand trust from others. But someone is creating a situation that could put your own trustworthiness in question. Be sure to keep all lines of communication open. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A problem delays the recognition that you hoped to receive for your hard work. But all will soon be resolved. Remember to make patience your watchword this week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Those wonderful ideas could expand your workplace prospects and ultimately lead you on a new career path. Your personal life also opens up new vistas. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) So much seems to be swirling around you these days that you might find it hard to focus on priorities. Best advice: Take things one at a time, and you’ll get through them all. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Work out situations with what you have, and avoid the temptation to create complications where they don’t exist. This applies both at home and in the workplace. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Keep your keen senses open to possible changes in personal and/or professional situations. Knowing what might lie ahead gives you an edge on how to handle it. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Personal pressures at work could create a problem with your performance. Best advice: Focus on the job ahead of you. If necessary, you can deal with the other issue later. BORN THIS WEEK: Like your fellow Aquarian Abraham Lincoln, you have a way of handling the most difficult situations with grace and conviction. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
