Award-winning photographer Tom Brossart will be conducting a series of three photo workshops this spring. Adventures in Photography will be hands-on workshops to help those in attendance understand their digital camera and its functions, which will lead to better photos. The first workshop will be in Sedona on Feb. 10 and will focus on landscape photo techniques. The second workshop will be in March and will concentrate on wildflower photographs (the date of this workshop will be determined when the wildflowers are blooming). The final workshop will be April 6. The cost of each workshop is $100, or $80 for those who have attended previous workshops with Brossart or have taken his digital photography course at GCC. Each workshop is limited to eight participants to ensure as much one-on-one instruction as possible, so sign up soon by calling (928) 979-2393 or e-mail Brossart at MEDITATION-A-THON

All proceeds from the event will be used to feed and care for the dogs. Each meditator will find his/her sponsor(s) for the time segment she/he chooses. Anyone interested in participating or making a donation can call (928) 595-1378 for more information or to sign up.

Welcome to The Rim Review. The cover story this week is about the upcoming Arizona Centennial celebration to open a new, year-long exhibit at the Rim Country Museum. The members of the Northern Gila County Historical Society, have collected photos, artifacts and more to celebrate the state’s centennial at the museum. There is much to acknowledge over the 100 years of history of the state. The great old “chaining tree” in front of the Payson Womans Club is one of those things. According to research by the experts

with the Forest Service, the tree is at least 200 years old, so has been “witness” to the history that has transpired in the Rim Country, not only over the 100 years of statehood, but for the century that preceded it. Read about the exhibit and the “witness tree” in this week’s Rim Review. Elsewhere, there is more history to read about. Stan Brown continues his tales of the Rim Country’s Wild West days in his Back When column, relating the stories about a murder in 1892. Recipes in this edition are based on figs

SCOTTSDALE CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS Metropolitan Klezmer, 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 9. Tickets: $29, $39. Hailed as “one of the finest American klezmer bands” by Songlines Magazine, Metropolitan Klezmer performs an exhilarating range of musical treasures with astonishing agility and refreshing depth.

Gildin, who will sign copies of his award-winning book, “The Polski Affair,” and its just-completed sequel, “The Family Affair,” in the Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium at 6:30 p.m. The books tell the story of Holocaust survival, what the families knew or thought they knew and how, decades later, they learn, for the first time, those things that were better left unsaid. The Duke Ellington Orchestra, 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 11. Tickets: $39, $49. One of the most influential figures in jazz, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington created more than 2,000 pieces of music during his prolific career.

There will be an Arts-Connect Open Dance with the AZ Lindy Hop Society starting at 3:30 p.m. Learn to swing and strut your stuff at this open dance with the AZ Lindy Hop Society in the Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium. Free to the public. No-host bar. The event is presented by the Fred J. English and Sara M. English Charitable Trust, with additional support from Vi at Silverstone, a Vi and Plaza Companies Community. Promotional support provided by The Arizona Lindy Hop Society. TAO: The Way of the Drum, 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 18. Tickets: $49, $59.

American pianist Simone Dinnerstein has gained an international following thanks to the remarkable success of her top-selling recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Making her Scottsdale debut, she will perform Bach’s three chorale preludes for piano by Busoni, Kempff and Myra Hess; Partita No. 1 in B-flat Major and Partita No. 2 in C Minor; and Schubert’s Four Impromptus, Op. 90. The performance also includes the Center’s Keyboard in the Sky video display, which enables the audience to see the pianist’s hands moving across the keyboard in real time from any seat in the house. Presented by the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. Irvin Mayfield & the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 24. Tickets: $39, $49. One of the young giants in the jazz world, trumpeter and bandleader Irvin Mayfield founded the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, affectionately known as NOJO, in 2002 to carry the tradition of New Orleans jazz into the 21st century. Since then, this swinging, 16-piece band has shared The Big Easy’s rich jazz heritage with enthusiastic audiences around the country and won the 2010 Grammy Award for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble.” There will be an Arts-Connect Post-Show Talk with Irvin Mayfield and KJZZ’s Blaise Lantana. Lantana chats onstage with bandleader Irvin Mayfield of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra following the concert. Free to ticket holders.

A tense, thought-provoking film BY ANDY MCKINNEY REVIEWER

As humans, our fear of wolves goes back a long ways, maybe all the way to our days around a campfire with nothing but pointy sticks to protect us. The fable is Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, not the Kangaroo. “The Grey” keys into this atavistic fear in the most compelling way put on film in many years. “The Grey” scares the Dickens out of us. Liam Neeson carries this film on his own broad shoulders. It is Liam, the wolves and some other guys. He has been called the thinking man’s action star and I will not quibble about that characterization. He has a powerful screen presence and commands our attention whenever he appears, which is often and long — lucky for us. The wolves are big, fierce and numerous. Kudos must go to the wolf wranglers. (Wouldn’t wolf wrangling for the movies be a great job?) Writer-director-producer Joe Carnahan must take the credit (and the blame, as we will see) for this movie, which is much more than a simple action flick. Even the title, “The Grey,” is opaque. The title might refer to the wolves, the most obvious reference. Or, given the misty atmosphere over the landscape (supposedly wild Alaska) it might be the impenetrable terrain of the Last Frontier. Or it may be that realm that exists, however briefly, between life and death. Writer Carnahan very successfully collaborates with Director Carnahan to deliver not one, but two very moving, careful and spiritual death scenes. He also causes the character played by Neeson, a widowed wolf hunter in the employ of the oil companies, to explore the ques-

tion most notably asked by Kilgore Trout in Venus on the Half Shell — i.e.: Why is man born only to suffer and die? You don’t often get this kind of theological interest in an action flick. This peek into human spirituality, I think, adds to the depth of the character and to our enjoyment or at least appreciation of the film. We give a solid two and a half saw blades for “The Grey.” Why not more saw blades for this scary and thought-provoking film? As producer, Carnahan has allowed a number of real howlers to spoil his film. The Neeson character is given a job that does not exist. Animal security is handled by the regular private security firms that are subcontractors to the oil companies. They are uniformed guards who carry shotguns to guard against… bears. Wolves are just not a problem. Also there is a bar scene early in the film in a place, an oil camp in the far Arctic, where none are allowed by local law and the preference of the oil companies. No one in his right mind would encourage roughnecks to get drunk in camp. They are hard enough to control when they are sober. Maybe I wouldn’t care about this stuff if I hadn’t spent so many years in the Arctic oil camps myself. But in a realistic movie, care is usually taken to be realistic. This film is rated R for violence and people being devoured by wild animals. It runs three minutes short of two hours. With a budget estimated at a scant $25 million it has taken in $20 million over the opening three-day weekend. As producer, Carnahan must be smiling. The film will surely do well and, my quibbles aside, it should do well. We need films that examine the totality of the human condition, it does us good.

The United States is a large country that offers many opportunities for different vacations. You can examine American history in various locations, you can experience the great outdoors with camping, swimming, fishing and hiking, and there are plenty of upscale resorts and spas as well as two coasts to enjoy. You don’t ever have to leave our shores to find excitement and pleasure. In this Travel Talk we will offer suggestions to assist in selecting a vacation for which no passport or foreign language guide is needed. This spring there is the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby. You KEN BROOKS could plan to be in Lexington, Ky. from about May 2 to May 6 to take in all the southern style events taking place around the actual horse race. To be in the middle of it all, you might see if you can get accommodations at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington. There is so much going on before the running of the race as well as a chance to see which horse might win the 2012 Triple Crown. What’s to do before the race? You could plan to visit a horse farm for starters. See how these horses are cared for… some get better care than humans. At one of the horse farms they might even throw in a barbecue. As soon as you arrive, or even before, obtain detailed information on the activities around the Derby and reserve your spot at some if possible. You may even wish to tour one of Kentucky’s whiskey distilleries and enjoy some sampling. I would advise seeing a travel agent who can obtain information for you; but check out details on the Web as well to get an idea of activities taking place and sites to see. Perhaps joining a tour group may be the best plan, with the tour company obtaining all the tickets you will need. The running of the Derby is almost a world event and many people will be present to witness the race at Churchill Downs. Tauck Tours is one company I am aware of that is running tours to the Derby. Phone 1800-468-2825. For more southern hospitality, you might consider visiting Charleston, S.C. and Savannah, Ga. Drive, fly or take the train to the Atlantic Coast. After checking into your hotel, be sure to have dinner in the historic district at 45 Bistro in Savannah’s oldest hotel, the Marshall House. You will taste Southern cuisine like never before. A trip to historic Savannah has to include visiting the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, followed by a visit to the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, chronicling the

great Atlantic trading era. As you drive along Savannah’s streets you will see homes that date back in our history that are well kept and the owners are proud of their history. You’ll see some 1,000 restored buildings. And, take time here to walk the sidewalks to really see the history. You can visit Fort Pulaski National Monument, where military history was forever changed during a Civil War battle. Plan to spend a night at Hilton Head Island and perhaps stay a night at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, which is right on the seafront. Be sure to take an early morning walk on Hilton Head’s beautiful beaches before heading north to Beaufort. There, you can explore the local cobblestone streets to take in this charming town. Now, on to Charleston. This is one of the more important seaports on the East Coast. Take a harbor cruise to fully experience the area with all of its history. You can even take a plantation tour to witness what you may have seen in Gone With the Wind…Tara. Today, you will see only the good things that happen on a plantation. There will be no slaves and no Civil War, but a tour here will give you an idea of what life is like today in the rural South. If you visit during the peak of summer, expect hot, humid weather. If you are an American history fan, try visiting some Civil War battlegrounds and cities where the Founding Fathers laid the groundwork for the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. Begin in Philadelphia, America’s first capital; while here, see and visit Independence Hall, site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and ride in a horse-drawn carriage back in time along cobblestone streets to see the Liberty Bell; and visit the National Constitution Center, where you can view the multimedia presentation Freedom Rising. Not far out in the countryside is Amish Life in Lancaster County. Here, you will see the beautifully cared for farms and get a feeling of how these people live. In some ways it’s like stepping back into the mid 1800s. You will find these people friendly in the small villages and enjoy seeing them travel by horse and buggy. It’s a look into the earlier times of America. Cross the Mason Dixon Line into West Virginia and Virginia to experience the South as it was during the Civil War period. The towns and villages are interesting to walk around, with many shops to interest you. If you can, make time to visit historic Williamsburg and get a sense of life in colonial times. This was the old colonial capital and heart of the economic and political hub of Britain’s largest colony in the New World. One night, dine in a colonial tavern to get an even greater sense of old times. In Williamsburg you can visit the Capitol Building, Raleigh Tavern, the Governor’s Palace, Bruton Parish Church and well cared for colonial homes and shops.

Then head to Jamestown to explore the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. You can attend an informative lecture examining the influence of the Powhatan, English and African cultures and see exhibitions of colonial history, homes and shops. Next, if you are making an extended tour of the East Coast, you will want to see Washington, D.C. You will never forget a visit here; seeing all the historical buildings, monuments and the center of our government. A few years ago, I lived just outside D.C. in Reston, Va., which was a 25-minute drive into the city. I joined the Smithsonian Institute, which included 53 museums in and about the city. Often, we would attend informative lectures and entertainment sponsored by the Institute. Even if you are driving a car, keep it parked for the day in Washington, D.C. and join a one-day tour, which will include many of the important sights you should not miss. The tour bus will do all the parking and maneuver the traffic, leaving you time to sightsee. Among the sights will be the War Memorials, the White House, the Congressional Buildings, the Supreme Court, and many more that you may have read about and seen on the news. You can also visit the theatre where Lincoln was shot and the place he was taken for his last hours. There is much traffic here so take my advice and book a day tour. You’ll be glad you did. Perhaps a tour in the Great Lakes country is of interest to you. Book a tour for this itinerary. You would fly into Traverse City, Mich. The next day, sightseeing begins with a tour of the Music House Museum, showcasing antique musical instruments and music-making machines, then journey along Lake Michigan’s west coast. You’ll drive through sand dunes and take a boat to Mackinac Island for a couple days’ visit, staying at the famed Grand Hotel. This is a deluxe resort dating back more than 100 years and claims the longest front porch in the country. Comfortable chairs and rockers line the porch, so you can view activity on the lake. There are no automobiles allowed on the island and transportation is by horseand-carriage or bicycles. During a visit here, you can tour Fort Mackinac, which once guarded the Straits of Mackinac 220 years ago. You can also tour the town on foot and snoop the interesting shops. Also available is a sail to Saginaw Bay and cruise up the Saginaw River. Once you leave here, drive over to Dearborn and explore the Henry Ford Museum with its magnificent collection of cars. You can journey home from Detroit. Soon, we will continue our American Vacations exploit talking about tours to New England as well as cruising inland waterways on the East Coast.

Sweet and savory Valentine bites Whether you’re hosting a festive Valentine’s Day party, or entertaining just for two, these recipes give you some sweet and savory choices that will set the mood for romance. Scrumptious bites start with simple, flavorful ingredients — golden Calimyrna and dark purple Mission figs from California and Jarlsberg cheese. Sweet, mouthwatering figs are not only packed with great taste, they’re full of fiber and essential nutrients, making them as good for you as they are good to eat. The versatile taste and texture of Jarlsberg cheese is ideal for these appetizers. Jarlsberg’s mild, nutty-sweet flavor and buttery creaminess makes it a perfect partner to figs and, along with its excellent melting properties, adaptable to many sweet or savory dishes. You can combine both ingredients in one easy sureto-please appetizer: Make a slit in a fig and stuff with a piece of Jarlsberg. Wrap with partially-cooked bacon (it should be a bit limp) and heat at 400 degrees just until bacon is crispy and cheese begins to melt. Get more sweet and savory recipes at and

The Wild West in the Rim Country CHAPTER 12: THE DARK SIDE OF TONTO BASIN The good times of rodeos, dances and neighborly visits were interrupted for the residents of Tonto Basin in the spring of 1892 when a young mother was murdered by her husband, and her baby son was left parentless. The story has often been told, but with so many versions one has to carefully sift them to discern how events really unfolded. It begins with two families who emigrated from Missouri to Arizona’s Tonto Basin in the late 1880s. It is not known if they had known each other before coming west, but their lives were destined to become intertwined. John and Adis Narron brought their family to stake a claim near Grapevine, close to the junction of Tonto Creek and the Salt River. Their four children registered in the Catalpa School, Alice, 17, Annie, 16, William, 10, and Lillian, 9.i STAN BROWN John Shelby See and his wife, Louisa, brought their family and claimed their squatter’s rights on Spring Creek in the Sierra Ancha.ii With them were their four children, Lizzie, 16, Fannie, 13, Becca (Rebecca), 11, and Beulah, 7. They also had three older children, a daughter who had died and her child, named Julian Journigan, was taken into the See family as their own. He was age 6.iii There also was a son named Bob and another son, John Morgan See, who carried his father’s first name. John, the son, soon had a reputation for being wild, and after shooting up a community dance he bragged about his disrespect for the law. For that incident he paid a fine and served time in jail. It was at one of those dances that John met Annie Narron. John and Annie began courting, and her parents tried to discourage the relationship because of John’s reputation. Nevertheless, Annie ignored the warnings and the two were wed early in 1891.iv John was 22 and Annie was about 19.v In October or November of that year they had a son whom they named Charlie. John was a very abusive husband, so Annie left him and took her baby, fleeing to her sister Alice’s ranch near Grapevine. Alice had married W. F. Gann soon after finishing at the local school and they had staked their own claim near Alice’s parents. Now Annie See sought refuge at the Ganns’. It happened that about this same time a Wells Fargo stage was robbed, and two bars of silver bullion worth $1,500 were One of the silver bars had been recovered and Gila County Sheriff Henry “Rim Rock” Thompson was scouting for the bandit who had the other. He was convinced the culprit was John M. See and sought out See’s wife Annie. She denied knowing anything about the robbery, but the sheriff urged her to return to her husband to try and find out if he had the silver. Shortly after the sheriff left, Annie went to the corral to milk the range cows. In those days ranchers did not have domestic milk cows, but got their milk from the range cows. The best report of what happened next is gleaned from the obituary for Annie Narron See that appeared in The Arizona Republic Saturday, May 21, 1892. “Globe — The horrible murder committed on Salt River Wednesday evening has created great excitement here. All the men on the river have joined the pursuit and if captured, the murderer See will prob-

ably be lynched. “Great indignation was felt when the news was brought to Globe of a terrible murder which was committed on Salt River. John M. See shot and killed his wife at the residence of her brother-in-law, Mr. Gann. See, who is a worthless scoundrel, has not lived happily with his wife and some time ago, exasperated by his cruelty she left him and at the time of her death was living with her sister, Mrs. Gann. See hung around the house all day trying to have her go back to live with him but she refused. “About 6 o’clock she went to the corral to milk and while she was thus engaged See came up behind and shot her twice. The first bullet entered over the heart and the second entered at the pit of the stomach…” Apparently she had not decided to follow the sheriff’s suggestion to spy on her husband, and according Julian Journigan, when Annie refused See’s plea that she return to him, he stormed into the house, took a pistol, and returned to shoot her. He fled the scene on the run, shouting to the Ganns and Narrons, who had observed the atrocity, “I have got all of this I want and I’m going home to die.” His cryptic remark caused speculation later. Did he mean he was going back to his ranch in See Canyon, or was he going to flee to Missouri from where the family had migrated? A massive manhunt was launched and a reward of $150 offered for his capture, a very large sum in that time. John M. See was never apprehended, and his parents made a home for little Charlie, raising him along with Julian Journigan and their other children. Although there was seven years difference in their ages, the cousins Julian and Charlie became close friends, fellow prospectors, and honored citizens in Payson and the Tonto Basin. Now for the rest of the story, as reported by Journigan. After the murder, John raced to his parents’ ranch on Spring Creek and confessed, “I’ve just killed Annie and I’m going to Mexico.” His mother insisted that his older brother Robert go with him. Robert did just that, and left his wife Caroline and their four-year-old son Jack to accompany his brother on the flight to Mexico. Of interest is this: in the Cline School record for 1904, Robert and Caroline are responsible for an 18-year-old girl named Candelana Hidalgo. It suggests he brought a 12-year-old girl back with him when he returned from escorting John to Mexico. John M. See remained in Mexico for the rest of his life and changed his name to Juan Moreno. He married an aristocratic lady and raised a family, perhaps financing it all with the bar of silver bullion that was never recovered from the 1892 robbery. It was a couple of decades later when Charlie See received a letter from a Mexican girl named Rosie, who was attending college in the States. She claimed to be Charlie’s half-sister. She was writing for their father who wanted to see his oldest son, and was asking him to come to Mexico for a visit. The visit was made, and Julian Journigan accompanied his cousin Charlie. They found that John See had become a prosperous landowner and rancher in Mexico, and had several children in his second family. The meeting was strained; John’s Mexican children would not warm up to Charlie, and the eldest stalked out of the room. The two Americans returned to Payson. Charlie sought out his mother’s grave, located on what Marguerite Noble said had become “the Martin place.”vii This would place the grave in See Canyon.

However, Jess Hayes claimed Annie had been buried about 100 yards from where she died, which would place the grave on the old Gann ranch near Grapevine. In any case, Charlie built a concrete curb around the grave and placed a headstone, which read, “Mother Annie See 1869-1892.” Reports from some who knew the location of the grave indicate the marker went missing sometime in 1967, between Feb. 22 and March 1. SOURCES: Public Records – The Great Register, Gila County School records; Sheriff’s Inquest report after the murder; “Sheriff Thompson’s Day: Turbulence In the Arizona Territory” by Jess G. Hayes; oral reports from Ira Murphy (Note Murphy’s hearsay account of the See tragedy is very unreliable, as indicated by obvious errors in facts and names. Some of his information is worth adding to the account); oral report from Marguerite Noble from an article in Tonto Trails; the eye witness account of Julian Journigan (her cousin) given to Marguerite Noble; Arizona Republic Newspaper. May 21, 1892. i The Great Register for Gila County, 1886; School records. Alice Narron finished school in 1887. ii Marguerite Noble said she knew of two See ranches, the other one in See Canyon, named for the family. The obituary for Annie Narron in the Arizona Republic of May 21, 1892 makes it clear that when John Morgan See and his bride were married, John was abusive and Annie fled to her sister’s at Grapevine. John M. See had already staked his claim near Christopher Creek in what became known as See Canyon. That is where he took his bride to set up their home. iii Much of the story comes from Julian Journigan’s reminiscence, as told to his cousin Marguerite Noble and passed on from her. iv The date of their marriage is confusing, because Gila County marriage records indicate they were married October 1, 1886. This means they were married within months or a year of their family’s arrival. This would also raise the question whether they knew each other and courted back in Missouri. v Birthdates are deduced from census and school records, and thus may vary by a year, depending on when the registration was taken. vi In today’s market this would amount to $34,500 of purchasing power. vii The 1900 Cline School record lists the See daughter Beulah with a last name of Martin, but the next year, 1901, her name is again given as See.

The Rim Country Museum and Zane Grey Cabin will hold a special tour of the museums Tuesday, Feb. 14 for the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Arizona Centennial exhibit at Rim Country Museum Arizona will celebrate 100 years of statehood on Feb. 14, 2012. Activities are being held in numerous cities and towns throughout the year to honor this event. The Rim Country Museum here in Payson will feature a Centennial Exhibit titled: Arizona’s Story — A Rim Country View. ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

The exhibit features a section about Arizona’s Territorial Years from 1863 to early 1912 and will feature Rim Country personalities who contributed to Arizona’s growth toward statehood. • Duett Ellison, of Ellison Creek and later Pleasant Valley, was Arizona’s first First Lady. In 1904 she married George W. P. Hunt, who became the first governor of Arizona. • Also featured is the contribution of Samuel Ache Haught II, owner of the H-Bar Ranch in Rye who served in the 23rd Territorial Legislature. The largest section of the exhibit shares significant events from the first 100 years of statehood. The theme “A Rim Country View” provides a local focus on people and events in this area. The photos may evoke nostalgia in long-time Payson residents, while visitors may find the 100 years of progress in Rim Country quite amazing. There will also be a glimpse of what the future

may hold. The work on the C.C. Cragin pipeline is scheduled to begin in the spring, and progress on the anticipated four-year college campus continues as of this writing. Yet, there may be some other changes to Rim Country on the horizon. Although the Rim Country Museum and Zane Grey Cabin are normally closed on Tuesdays, a special tour of the museums will be held Tuesday, Feb. 14 for the Daughters of the American Revolution and other invited guests following the flag-raising ceremony. The Centennial Exhibit will open for public viewing on Wednesday, Feb. 15. FLAG CEREMONY

The entrance of New Mexico to the Union on Jan. 6, 1912 and Arizona on Feb. 14, 1912 resulted in a new design for the U.S. flag. The number of stars changed from 46 to 48. Updates to the U.S. flag become legal on the 4th of July following the date of admission for the state. Therefore the 48-star flag

was not officially adopted when Arizona became a state in February of 1912, but was first flown in July of that year. To celebrate Arizona’s Centennial, a flag-raising ceremony with an honor guard in attendance will be held at 1 p.m., Feb. 14 to raise the 48-star United States flag and Arizona state flag on the museum flagpole. These flags will be flown throughout the Centennial Year and the exhibit will remain on display as well.

The Emory Oak outside the Payson Womans Club building has been accepted as an official Centennial Witness Tree.

Emory Oak declared a ‘Witness Tree’ As part of the Arizona Centennial, the Arizona Community Tree Council, Inc. sponsored the “Witness Tree Program” to recognize trees that have stood within the boundaries of Arizona for over 100 years. Lita Nicholson of the Rim Country Museum nominated the Emory Oak in front of the Womans Club building on Main Street as a Witness Tree candidate. Extensive documentation was needed to support the nomination. Jim Mercer and Jeff Leonard from Tonto National Forest Ranger Station measured the tree’s height (53 feet) and crown spread (average 66 feet) and estimated that it could easily be 200 years old. Historical accounts and personal testimonials also supported the nomination. In early January, notification was received that the Emory Oak had been accepted as an official Centennial Witness Tree. This tree has long been known as the “Chaining Tree” in Payson. There was no jail in Payson until 1935 and local history sources report that the oak tree in front of the Womans Club served as the “jail tree” in the early years. Those who ran afoul of the law and were arrested would be chained to this tree while they awaited an officer from the county jail in Globe to transport them for incarceration. Old-timers report that, while a few truly needed to be incarcerated, many were just good ol’ boys who needed a place to calm down their exuberance from too much “likker.”

Join the Great Backyard Bird Count Watch for Snowy Owls and early migrants on the move Warmer temperatures and lack of snow in parts of North America are setting the stage for what could be a most intriguing 15th annual Great Backyard Bird Count, coming up Feb. 17-20, 2012. Bird watchers across the U.S. and Canada are getting ready to tally millions of birds in the annual count coordinated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Audubon, and Canadian partner Bird Studies Canada. In past counts, participants were most likely to report American Robins in areas without snow. Will more robins be seen farther north this year? Will some birds, such as Eastern Phoebes, begin their migrations earlier? And where will the “Harry Potter” owl turn up next? Snowy Owls have dazzled spectators as these Arctic birds have ventured south in unusual numbers this winter — an unpredictable occurrence that experts believe is related more to the availability of food than to weather. “This count is so much fun because anyone can take part — we all learn and watch birds together — whether you are an expert, novice, or feeder watcher,” said Gary Langham, Audubon’s chief scientist. “I like to invite new birders to join me and share the experience. Get involved, invite your friends, and see how your favorite spot stacks up.” Participants count birds at any location they wish for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and then enter their tallies at Anyone can participate in the free event, and no registration is required. Last year, participants submitted more than 92,000 checklists with more than 11 million bird observations. These data capture a picture of how bird populations are changing across the continent year after year — a feat that would be impossible without the help of tens of thousands of participants. “This is a very detailed snapshot of continental bird

Record crowds expected at two expos geared toward sportsmen BY MAX FOSTER ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

Outdoor enthusiasts from around the Rim Country, whether they are hunters, anglers, hikers, campers or mountain bikers, are gearing up for two upcoming expos designed to tickle the fancy of all who attend. The events include the International Sportsmen’s Expo to be held Feb. 23 to 26 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale and the Arizona Game and Fish Outdoor Expo set for March 31 and April 1 at the Ben Avery Shooting Range in Phoenix. Both offer an opportunity to experience first-hand the great Arizona outdoors. The International Sportsmen’s Expo has drawn fishing and hunting outfitters from around the state and will have on display the newest in fishing tackle and hunting gear, boats, motors, marine accessories, mountain home furnishings, ATVs, trucks, outdoor apparel and optics. More than 300 companies are expected to exhibit. Also the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Arizona Deer Association, Eastmans’ Trophy Deer and Boy Scouts of America will have information booths and displays set up throughout the entire show. The RMEF is hosting an Ultimate Rifle Raffle at the event. There will also be hands-on activities, including a giant casting pond, Arizona Game and Fish Department Youth Fair, a hunting dog competition and 3D Pop-Up

archery contest. Hank Shaw, author of Hunt, Gather, Cook will be on hand for hints and autographs, as will Lt. John Nores Jr., co-star of National Geographic TV’s “Wild Justice.” Tickets are $15 per adult; children under 15 and active military members will be admitted free of charge. Parking is free with admission. Attendees who don’t find what they want in the stadium, need only walk across the street to the giant Cabela’s store to find even more outdoor offerings. Those not interested in hunting, fishing or camping, might want to purchase a ticket simply to slip into the home of the Arizona Cardinals and check out the spot where Super Bowl LXII and WrestleMania XXVI were held. The 63,400-seat stadium, with its retractable roof and playing field, is unlike any stadium in North America. The Arizona Game and Fish Expo is an annual event designed to give the public chances to learn about wildlife-related and outdoor recreation activities including fishing, hunting, archery, shooting sports, camping, boating and off-highway vehicle recreation. More than 150 exhibitors are expected to be on hand to supplement the myriad of hands-on activities. Last year, the two-day expo drew a record 37,500 visitors and Game and Fish officials say the crowds could be even larger this year.

FEBRUARY 8, 2012 • RIM REVIEW | 11



DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am going buggy — literally. My 5-year-old kindergartner has head lice. I discovered them because he started scratching his head. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about this. I can’t imagine where he picked them up. Is the entire family destined to come down with them? I have four other children, two dogs and a husband. Help. — B.C. ANSWER: Head lice cause mothers more consternation than just about any other illness. For the record, head lice don’t transmit any illnesses. They do cause itching and scratching. They’re not a reflection of your cleanliness. Most likely your child picked them up at school from head-to-head contact or from sharing caps, brushes or combs. The head louse is only 3 mm (0.12 inches) long. They’re difficult to see. The female louse lays her eggs at the base of the hair and glues them to the hair. The eggs are called nits. They hatch in about eight days. Nits found within a quarter of an inch from the scalp indicate active infection. If they are farther away, the infection is not likely to be active. Treatments for head lice are many and usually quite effective. Advisory bodies promote permethrin (Nix) as the treatment of choice. It calls for reapplication in one week to 10 days. Malathion lotion (Ovide) is another reliable cure. Benzyl alcohol (Ulesfia Lotion 5 percent) is another good treatment that is applied to dry hair and then rinsed off. Natroba (spinosad) Topical Solution was approved recently as a head lice treatment. Both these latter two medicines need a prescription. You have many choices. Some of these treatments include combing the wet hair with a finetoothed comb to get rid of nits.

You do not have to treat other family members if they show no signs of infection. Pets are safe; human head lice don’t like them. The only household cleaning necessary is vacuuming chairs and carpets where your 5-yearold has been. Clothes he has worn in the past two days need to be washed in hot water and dried with maximum heat. Lice that are off the head live for only two days. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Some time ago, you wrote about a shrunken leg that was shaped like some kind of bottle. It has the word “teeth” in it. I have a dropped foot. My doctor doesn’t know what I am talking about but would like to see the article. Will you repeat it? — I.D. ANSWER: The “teeth” in what I wrote referred to Dr. Tooth, an English doctor whose name is part of a nerve illness called Charcot (SHAR-coe)Marie-Tooth disease. In spite of the fact that the name draws a look of puzzlement from most people, it’s the most commonly inherited nerve-muscle disorder. The illness usually shows itself in teen years, but it can take many years before it’s diagnosed. The lower leg muscles become quite thin, so the leg looks like an upside-down champagne bottle. It makes walking difficult. People stumble. Often, they cannot lift the foot fully off the ground — a dropped foot. A number of different varieties of this illness exist. I’ve described the most common one. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.


Actress was 54 when she played Glinda the Good Witch BY SAMANTHA WEAVER KING FEATURES 2012

• If you’re a fan of the original “Wizard of Oz” movie, you might be surprised to learn that the actress who played Glinda the Good Witch, Billie Burke, was 54 years old when the film was shot. • The award for the most needless war in history could very well go to Paraguay, whose president, Francisco Solano Lopez, believed himself to be an excellent tactician. He was a great admirer of Napoleon Bonaparte and wished to emulate the French emperor, but he had no wars to fight. To remedy the situation, in 1864 Lopez declared war on all three of his neighboring countries, Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil. His tactical abilities seem to have been of little use, however; it is estimated that 90 percent of Paraguay’s male population was killed during the

course of the war. • During this time of election madness, “misology” could be a useful word to know. It means “hatred of reason.” • French novelist Marcel Proust’s magnum opus, “Remembrance of Things Past,” has been hailed as a literary masterpiece, but not everyone was a fan at first read. As Proust was trying, unsuccessfully, to find a publisher for his seven-volume work, one publisher said, “I may be dense, but I fail to see why a chap needs 30 pages to describe how he tosses and turns in bed before falling asleep.” The author finally published the first volume with his own money; after the book was hailed as a masterpiece by critics, the same publishers who had rejected Proust competed for the opportunity to print the other six volumes of his work.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ideas are finally reaching those who can appreciate them. But don’t expect any immediate reactions. That will come later. Meanwhile, a personal matter needs your attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your energy levels are rising, and you’re feeling restless and eager to get into some activity, whether it’s for profit or just for fun. In either case, the aspects are highly favorable, so go for it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship seems to be winding down from passionate to passive. It’s up to you to decide what the next step will be. But don’t wait too long to take the initiative. Delay could create more problems. (June 21 to July 22) CANCER A decision looms. But be very sure that this is what you really want before you sign or say anything. Once you act, there’ll be little or no wiggle room for any adjustments. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Money matters improve, but you still need to be cautious with your spending. Also, set aside that Leonine pride for a bit and apologize for contributing to that misunderstanding. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A tempting financial situation could make the usually unflappable Virgo rush in before checking things out. Be alert to possible hidden problems. Get the facts before you act. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It’s nice to know that you’re finally getting due credit for your efforts. You also should know that new opportunities will follow. A family member brings important news. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Any uncertainty that begins to cloud an impending decision could signal a need to re-examine your reasons for wanting to take on this commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You benefit from taking time out of your currently hectic schedule to do more contemplation or meditation. This will help reenergize you, both in body and soul. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Nursing hurt feelings can zap the energies of even the usually self-confident Sea Goat. Best advice: Move forward. Success is the best balm for a painful ego. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A display of temperament surprises you, as well as those around you. It could be all that pressure you’re under. Consider letting someone help you see it through. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Some things don’t seem to be working out as you’d hoped. Don’t fret. Instead, take some time out to reassess your plans and see where changes could be made. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy traveling and meeting people. You are especially good with children and would make an excellent teacher. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
