that cruise to the destinations you wish to visit. Up until now, there have been amazing low fares for cruises on fine ships. Perhaps the cruise industry is about to reach the point of over-capacity for the present. We’ll see what happens this year. But, if you have been thinking of a cruise, this is probably a good time to dive in. I can’t remember another time when many fares are so low. Caribbean cruises are presently the best bargain right now. Mediterranean cruising is more pricey, but remains about the same as last year. Airfares continue to rise because of the airlines’ increasing costs. Look into Norwegian Air for lower fares to certain parts of Europe from select airports in the U.S. This is a new service that will begin soon. WARDROBE

After you have booked your cruise you begin thinking about what you want to wear on the voyage. First of all, don’t take a lot of shoes. Remember, most ships are so large today that you may be seen by various passengers only once. You no longer need to bring several suitcases. Try and keep it to one bag per family member. That makes it easier to move about before and after the cruise.

For the ladies just remember shoes take up a lot of room in your suitcase. Limit yourself to three pairs. Take a sturdy pair for active pursuits, a pair of flats or flip-flops for daytime wear and a pair of dressy shoes for dinner. Re-wear clothing to save luggage space. Pack three or four outfits for day use on your cruise (daywear, gymwear, swimwear and eveningwear). To save space bring tops or dresses that you can fancy up for dinner and then rewear in a more casual way in port the following day. Color coordinate your travel wardrobe. For example, bring two sets of travel-wear, one in black/gray/blue palette and others in shades of green and browns. Also bring along a couple of colored scarves to not only dress up these basics, but they can distract your tablemates from the fact you’ve worn the pants before. For the guys, always take a jacket. You never know when the air-conditioning will be turned too low in the public rooms. A sweater or two is a good idea also. This also will give you pockets in which to place your cruise card, phone, daily newsletter of events onboard and take the chill off windy decks. Jeans are in style aboard ships during the day.

sure to have travel size toiletries for your carry-on travel bag on the aircraft and use a regular shave kit with regular size items to use in the bathroom of your stateroom that you have packed in your checked baggage on the plane. I roll a lot of items to save space in my luggage. This includes some pants, PJs, and bathrobe to name a few. Shirts require proper folding of course, as do jackets and coats. Don’t forget dinner wear. A dark suit and/or sports jacket and slacks will suffice. You need a white dress shirt and ties. If you choose not to dress for dinner, you can dine in the buffet. Make sure your bags are properly labeled with your name, address and phone number showing. Be sure to place your passport, wallet, tickets and other important information in a section of your carry-on that you can easily access when necessary. Take advantage of package deals. Some will include your transfers, airfare and cruise fare in one neatly packaged offering. Always shop around for the best deal. Plan for splurges. Some times you run into something that is so tempting you just must have it. Be sure to read the daily program, it is placed under your door or in your mailbox outside in the passageway. It will give you a list and describe the various activities being presented each day. Bring seasick medication in case you hit rough seas. Your doctor can order this for you. Be careful of the lido deck buffet. It can easily put pounds on you if you eat too much. Try and afford a cabin with a balcony. It will increase your enjoyment of the cruise to the utmost. We sincerely want you to enjoy your next vacation wherever it is.

4 | RIM REVIEW • MARCH 19, 2014



Compelling, engaging and very Oscar-worthy No movie of 2013 blasted us with such compelling and emotionally engaging images as “Twelve Years a Slave.” I can readily understand the reason that the Academy gave it the Oscar for Best Picture. It does have some flaws as a picture. The bulk of the action happens in the deep, deep South, but none of the actors speak with the slow cadences and inflections of that time and place. Further, very nearly every black character speaks with the vocabulary and sensibilities of an educated middle class person. This includes characters who are illiterate and who have never traveled further than 10 miles from their birthplace. Even lower class white people speak in the language of the upper crust. It is somewhat off putting to have slaves and their cruel overseers speak like academics at a seminar, but I do not claim this as a fatal flaw. The brutal truth of the story bulldozes through all conventional methods of evaluating movies. I have an idea that the language comes from the original 19th century book, written by a well-educated and erudite free black northerner. High quality acting embellishes any film, including this one. The acting and the outstanding cast reminded me of “Lincoln,” in that many people came to work on the film because it was of such historical importance. And because they knew that the film would be widely scrutinized, every one of the actors brought his best game. That always pleases an audience. Only in America can a Mexican born actress of Kenyan parentage win the Academy Award for best supporting actress in portraying a quintessential American character. Lupita Nyong’o did just that. The terribly thin young actress beat out other actresses whose names are household words. Hers is not the only worthy effort, but it is the only one rewarded with the tinsel trinket. In the title role British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor carries the film. We could not reasonably invent his character; he had to be a real man in 1841, caught in a genuine tragedy. Audiences might remember Ejiofor from his smaller — and less important historical — roles in “Children of Men,” “American Gangster” and “2012.” He hasn’t always been a big star, but he surely is now. All the other roles are much smaller, including the small role of child actress Quvenzhane’ Wallis. She plays the younger version of the title character’s daughter.

Or he can have his idea turned 1841 to 1853. John Ridley took that original work and turned it into words by a scriptwriter. Or a

scriptwriter might bring a potential script to the producer. The producer must one way or another secure a viable script. This costs money. It is the job of the producer to get financing to make the movie. The financiers want a fat return on their money. They want blockbusters and a huge payoff if at all possible. This helps explain why there are so very many shoddy films made every year. There are over 3,000 feature length films made in the U.S. every year. Sometimes financiers are the producers or the producers can be the financiers by using their own money. As an example, George Clooney wanted to direct a film. In order to do so, he became the pro-

ducer. He raised the money, in part, by a mortgage on his own home. The producer is like the CEO of a business. He is the boss. All responsibility rests on his shoulders. He finds a script. He hires a director who has the responsibility of actually making the film. Usually, the producer will have a big say on who is hired to be the principle actors. The various other producers, the line producers keep track of the day-by-day expenses on behalf of the producer. An executive producer might be the representative of a major motion picture production company. The executive producer is often not involved in the day-today oversight of the production.

Sam died in

Yavapai County at the age of 70 on Feb. 18, 1938, though we have not traced his movements after 1920. My attention was turned to a second family that settled on Sharp Creek, named Drew. I received a request from a consultant with the Arizona Department of Transportation. ADOT was doing an ecological impact study before the new divided highway could be constructed. There was a stone monument along the creek and beside the road, and a second monument about one-fourth of a mile downstream at the site of the Drew homestead. What could I tell them about these, and furthermore they needed to know the history of the stone bridge over the creek on the old road. Since the Drews were faithful members of the LDS church, their family provided many records to be mined for information. Frank Pierce Drew was born Oct. 6, 1855 in Sacramento, Calif., where his parents Levi and Eliza Drew had moved from New Hampshire. He grew up in California and was a farmer until a friend named Joe Woods wrote and urged Frank to come to Arizona, and join him as a cowboy on the ranch of Thomas Greer. How Frank and Joe had become friends living so far apart is not on record, but Frank accepted the challenge and moved to the Greer Ranch in Hunt, Ariz. in 1880. During his several years on the Greer Ranch a party of cowboys, including Frank Drew, was “attacked by Mexicans at St. Johns, Arizona, Hi Hatch and Jeff were wounded but they fought their way out. Joe Woods is wearing his pistol ‘Rustler Style’.” (Caption on a photo from It wasn’t long before he was courting the Greer’s daughter, Deseret Diannah Greer, nicknamed Dessie. They were married Oct. 1, 1883 at the Greer Ranch, and soon began a family. Their first child, William Frank Drew, was born at Woodruff, half way between the Greer Ranch in Hunt and Holbrook. This suggests the young couple moved out on their own and Frank hired on a ranch in this new locality. The next year they suffered the loss of a stillborn baby girl. Then in October of 1889 a boy, Cecil Levi Lacey Drew, was born there at Woodruff. Their next child was N. Baldwin Drew, the “N” probably standing for Frank’s maternal grandfather Nathan. He was born

April 17, 1892 on the “Tonto Basin Ranch.” This means that between 1889 and 1892 the Frank Drew family had staked their homestead on Sharp Creek, neighbors to the Sharps. Their next and last child Lloyd Alton Drew, was born Nov. 8, 1896 in Mesa, suggesting they were living there as well as in the Rim Country. Frank was voting and running his brand of cattle from the Sharp Creek Ranch, and his sons reminisced that they considered the homestead on Sharp Creek to be their home during their growing up years. Dessie died July 28, 1898, and Frank married Mary Benton in Mesa in May 1899. Sadly she died a little over one year after they were married, and in 1904 Frank

co-producer however might well represent the executive producer. Actors, directors and writers are often credited with a producer designation and get a slice of the profits or at least an additional paycheck. The producers go to all this trouble because they stand to make the biggest chunk of the profits. This week’s film cost $20 million to produce. This includes

the pay for the producer, director, all the actors, the writer and all the people who are necessary to make the film. But it has taken in almost $160 million at the box office. As a rule of thumb you can think of the theater getting half the ticket price. Half of $160 is $80 minus the $20 million to make the movie leaves a profit for the producers of $60 million; distributors and production companies also get a piece of the earnings.

The deadline to sign up for the Women’s Wellness Forum is Friday, March 21. Contact the Mogollon Health Alliance, (928) 472-2588 or the PRMC Senior Circle, (928) 472-9290 for additional details. The cost is $15 per person. The program is from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday, March 29 at Payson High School.

WELLNESS FORUM Starts with laughter; then focuses on power of sleep

The lack of sleep can lead to all kinds of problems — from short tempers to brain fog to stress to actual health issues. So, to address these problems and present ways to solve them, the sponsors of the annual Women’s Wellness Forum are making sleep the focus of the event Saturday, March 29. The program is from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Payson High School. The day starts with a 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. wake-up qigong session with Penny Navis-Schmidt. A continental breakfast is served before the keynote

speaker, humorist Bobbie Staten, takes the PHS auditorium stage. Staten has always had a reputation for being a talker and for being funny. “My mother kept all my report cards and every teacher always wrote, ‘Bobbie talks too much.’ — Not if it’s what you are going to do for a living. “In high school I was voted wittiest. My daddy had a real quick wit and I think I inherited my sense of humor from him.” She realized she was a humorist when talking about a wellness clinic she helped open at a hospital where she was working. It had been her idea and she pushed it through, so she was given the job of selling it to the community. To sell it she started speaking to Rotary and Kiwanis clubs. “It was hard. You get maybe 10 to 15 minutes to talk and they’re not really paying attention since they’re CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

The annual Women’s Wellness Forum offers Rim Country women of all ages a chance to get together, visit with old friends and new, and learn about taking care of themselves.

Dr. Cynthia Booth, OB/GYN (above right), will lead sessions on The Bottom Line on Hormone Replacement Therapy at the 2014 Women’s Wellness Forum, which is from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday, March 29 at the Payson High School.

trying to have lunch and get back to work. I didn’t like being ignored. So, to get their attention I asked if any of them — and it was all men — knew what was the leading cause of death in 45-year-old men. That got their attention. Somebody said heart attack. I told them the leading cause of death in 45-year-old men is 25-year-old women.” The men in that meeting then paid attention to what Staten was saying. She said about a year within that breakthrough — realizing humor was going to save her, she was speaking so often she decided it was time to leave her medical career behind. Bill Cosby and Will Rogers are the two humorists she admires most. Staten has been a motivational speaker since 1986. She did hundreds of speaking engagements every year for many years, but has since cut back to 20 to 30 a year. Away from the podium and off stage, she likes staying at home — a farmhouse that is more than a century old — with her six dogs on a small acreage and watching television in her pajamas. When she does speak, she wants her audience to leave happy. “I want them to see the good in life and to be kind to one another,” she said. Staten said she is where she wants to be in her career. She has written a few books, but does not plan to write any more. “What I do is physical. I put my whole body into it. That sort of humor doesn’t translate well to the written word,” she explained. The program she plans to present at the WWF she calls, “Batteries Not Included.” “The theme is we have to make our own happiness, we can’t go find it somewhere,” she said. Staten is a veteran certified speaking

professional (CSP) and humorist. Her motivational speaking techniques are funny and encouraging. She uses a weave of down-home, North Carolina humor and communicates her message to let go of stress, and choose what you allow “in your circle” of influence. She believes we each can choose to live our life with a smile and a purpose, or drag through each day like it was day one of a 30-year sentence. Staten believes each individual is responsible for bringing joy, happiness and success into their home lives and their work environment. “There isn’t much you can’t do once you figure out what it is that you want,” said Staten. She also believes that life really isn’t all that hard and she enjoys helping others “figure things out” — whether it is how to increase morale, boost profits, reduce turnover or prepare for change. She works with individuals and organizations to redirect momentum to get the job done. Staten’s background prior to speaking was in nursing. She holds both a bachelor’s of nursing and a master’s of public health degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From her life experiences, she said she has learned that many people are in pain, both physically and emotionally. This pain is based on fear of change, of loss of security, trouble with relationships, parenting, health and work. She believes that laughter lets out little “Puffs of Pain.” Her message reflects a universal theme as old as time, yet fresh and relevant for today’s hectic lifestyle. When you have your health, family, and priorities balanced, life just seems to fall into place. For the few times when it doesn’t — laugh! Learn to use laughter to let out little puffs of pain. Staten’s topics are a result of her personal battle with life, health and finding

happiness. For years she felt unfulfilled, working in positions that didn’t especially match her talents or natural tendencies. She was unhappy and it showed. She talks of turning life around; having the courage to take responsibility for finding one’s own happiness. Once a chronic dieter and an ex-twopack-a-day smoker, she understands how hard it is to make lifestyle changes. However, firsthand knowledge provides her with a special insight that helps audiences find the courage to take the plunge. Her health philosophy is based on each individual’s responsibility for self-care, guided by — but not controlled by — health care professionals. BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Following Staten’s program, participants will go into breakout sessions throughout the morning, then break for

lunch and a chance to check out all the information and material provided by vendors. The sessions include: • The Path to Headache Freedom with Dr. Kristi Gill, DO; • Toxic Sleep with Yvette Thorson, Deborah Rose-Ellis and Heidi Kueny; • Use Your Computer Safely with Ray Baxter; • Release Your Power of Movement with Richard Staudt, MOT, OTR/L; • The Bottom Line on Hormone Replacement Therapy with Dr. Cynthia Booth, OB/GYN; • Live Healthy with Diabetes with John Hancock, RN; • Relieve Stress to Improve Health and Happiness with Shiranda Deerwoman; • What Beauty Sleep Does for You, Dr. Alan Michels, MD; • Gluten-Free in Your Kitchen with Christine and BJ Bollier of Vita-Mart; and • Sleep Apnea and Cardiac Issues with Dr. Salvatore Gillette, DO. The $15 registration is due by March 21 at the Mogollon Health Alliance, (928) 4742588. Forms for the program are also at the Payson Regional Medical Center Senior Circle, 215 N. Beeline Highway, Payson, (928) 472-9290. Participants select three breakout sessions assigning the numbers 1 and 2 to their preferred programs and 3 to their chosen alternative. Those interested may provide a “scholarship” of $15 in addition to their own registration fee so that their neighbors who might not be able to afford the program can attend. The Healthy Woman program of the Payson Regional Medical Center and Mogollon Health Alliance sponsor the annual Women’s Wellness Forum. Numerous other supporters contribute to the event as well.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes isn’t easy for you. But if you do it, you’ll gain a better perspective of what you need to do to achieve your goals. Be open to new ideas. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) There are still some problems you might have to deal with before moving on to your next project. It’s a good idea to accept help from those who share your objectives. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It’s time to recognize the difference between those who are truly concerned for you and those who plan to use your good nature to their advantage. New ideas become increasingly attractive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Depending on a promise made becoming a promise kept could be more than a mite unwise at this time. It’s best to proceed on your own rather than wait for aid that might never arrive. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A recently revitalized relationship might not be quite what the Big Cat expected. But give yourself more time to deal with the changes. A little flexibility can go a long way. Good luck. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A major change could prompt more adjustments. Some of them might be difficult to deal with at first. But hang in there, and before you know it, you’ll be coasting to your next goal. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your sense of justice prompts you to speak out against an unfair situation, even if you seem to be the only one who feels that way. But you soon learn that many others agree with you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creating a fuss is not usually your style. But that doesn’t mean you should tolerate an ill-mannered attitude. Speak up for yourself, and you’ll earn the respect of others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might have a few loose ends to tie up before you can stamp your project as complete. But once that’s done, you might want to celebrate with someone special in your life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Disappointment darkens the Goat’s mood. But close friends rally to pull you through with words of encouragement. Use their confidence in you to rebuild your own self-esteem. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) An upcoming decision might be more difficult with inaccurate information. Best to recheck the data you have at hand right now to be sure it won’t mislead you later. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) An offer you previously turned down might no longer be available. But if you do some checking around, you could find something else that would suit you just fine. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in helping those who cannot help themselves. Although it embarrasses you, the fact is, people like you and tell you so. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Head and ear noise drives people crazy BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. ©2014 NORTH AMERICA SYND.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have tinnitus. It sounds like roaring in my head. I take gabapentin for it. Do you know of anything else for it? — E.A. ANSWER: You have an affliction that would drive me crazy — tinnitus, a constant noise in one or both ears or the head that people describe in a variety of ways as ringing, whistling, buzzing, hissing or roaring. An estimate of the number of Americans suffering from tinnitus (TIN-uh-tiss or tuh-NITE-iss) is somewhere between 16 million and 60 million. Tinnitus mostly happens to older people whose hearing is diminishing. Why tinnitus arises in them is explained by the fact that head noises are generated constantly. Outside noise entering the ears obliterates these internal noises. When deafness approaches, the volume of external noises greatly lessens, and the internal noises then become prominent and nerveracking. If your hearing is growing dimmer, a hearing aid will help you hear more clearly and will dampen your tinnitus. Other causes of tinnitus are as banal as a wax impaction in the eardrum, something easily taken care of by the family doctor. Drugs like aspirin and the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (Aleve, Advil, Motrin) can bring on tinnitus if they are constantly used. If a cause cannot be determined, then other approaches have to be taken. A bedside radio tuned to a station that plays the kind of music you like can reduce the volume of tinnitus. Nighttime is the worst time for it. Tinnitus maskers, devices worn like a hearing aid, emit a constant sound that dulls tinnitus. Do get in touch with the American Tinnitus Association. It will provide you with a wealth of information on tinnitus and its treatments. You can reach the association online at If you don’t have a computer, surely a friend, neighbor or relative does and can hook you up with the association. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please discuss liver cysts. Two CT scans, taken years apart, revealed two liver cysts. I was told not to be concerned. Should I be? — B.S. ANSWER: Since scans have become so routinely a part of medical practice, liver cysts are seen quite frequently. Most liver cysts neither cause pain nor upset liver function. No one is sure why they form. Unless they are large or are causing symptoms, they can be left alone. Trouble-making liver cysts do exist. Some parasite infections cause them. Those cysts almost always produce symptoms that call for treatment. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I recently read several articles about the use of food-grade hydrogen peroxide. I am interested in using it for prostate and urinary tract problems. Are there real benefits from it? — J.C. ANSWER: Concentrations of 1.5 percent hydrogen peroxide are used by some as a mouthwash and at 1.5 percent to 3 percent as a wound cleaner. The same doses are used to remove wax from the ear canal. I can’t find any confirmation of the benefit of using food-grade hydrogen peroxide for prostate or urinary tract problems. I would not encourage you to use it. Food grade is a very high concentration. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.
