TRAVEL TALK | KEN BROOKS
PLAN FOR TRAIN TRAVEL IN FUTURE Train travel is gaining ridership in North America. Why? It is comfortable, relaxing and in some cases rather inexpensive. For more than 40 years the government has operated the passenger train service in the United States. In Canada it’s VIA. There was a time in North America when rail travel carried the most passengers from point A to point B and almost everywhere in-between. Shortly after World War II rail ridership began a decline and ﬁnally in 1971 the government took over passenger train service in America. For many years AMTRAK operated a rather skeletal route system with poor schedules and even poorer equipment. More recently new KEN BROOKS equipment has been placed in service and schedules have been improved. On most long-haul routes Superliner equipment is in use. These cars consist of two levels. The upper level is for passenger seating while lower level is for baggage storage and restrooms. The Pullman (sleeper) accommodations use both levels for private rooms. These rooms vary in size from roomettes (for one person) on up to bedrooms (for two persons) and family rooms for more than two persons. All private room accommodations offer toilet and washbowl facilities, which are enclosed. In the larger rooms you have your own shower in the bathroom. The chair-cars give you roomy seats with plenty of leg room much like that found in aircraft business-class. The Superliner equipment provides a smooth ride and plenty of glass to see the wonderful scenery as it whizzes by your windows. On many longer routed trains you can enjoy three meals in the diner. Costs are just a little higher than you ﬁnd in a restaurant at home. However, you are in a special situation riding the rails at 80 MPH and enjoying a meal and accompanying service. Train travel is usually hassle-free. You don’t have to show up at the train station two or more hours before departure as you do with air travel. Just 20 minutes ahead of schedule is usually sufﬁcient to purchase tickets and board the train. AMTRAK also does not charge for bags in the over-head or baggage car. More and more airlines “little you to death” with extra charges which not only can be costly but annoying. The main rail routes in the United States operate up and down the West Coast between San Diego and Seattle, across the country between Los Angeles and Chicago, San Francisco and Chicago, Seattle and Chicago as well as service to smaller cities throughout the West and Midwest. There is also good service from Chicago south to New Orleans and all points in-between and trains to New York and New England, and south to Florida. In Canada VIA offers good schedules and equipment out of Vancouver to vari-

ous points North and East including the dazzling Canadian Rockies. Important points in the Rockies include Jasper National Park, Lake Louise and Banff. There are many other important scenic points you will discover while there. If you have the time and pocket book to travel by train from Vancouver East to Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City do so. This is a four-night passage on the famed Canadian. This train provides great service, meals and memorable scenery. You travel through the Rockies in the afternoon of the second day. The Canadian has both chair car and sleeper accommodations. It also has very ﬁne lounge cars and a diner. If you have a sleeper ticket (private room) your meals are included. The long-haul trains make several stops along the way where you can stretch your lets and get some fresh air. Probably one of the best private trains in North America is in Canada and called the Rocky Mountaineer. Many rail cars on this train have been built more recently and many travelers ﬁnd the Mountaineer newer and more luxurious. The Rocky Mountaineer is different from VIA rail in that it covers the scenery during the day then stops at night and places passengers in motels and hotels for a good nights rest, then transfers you back to the train which continues on to the next points of interest. Today, 68 percent of rail travelers are age 40 to 70. Younger people use trains for shorter hauls such as San Diego to Los Angeles or Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. Some train travelers consider train travel romantic. And, you travel from cen-
ter of city to center of city. Some airports are located “out of the high rent district” quite far from the city. Train travel is also ideal for families. The young ones can walk up and down the aisles and there are also interesting points of interest along the way. You will also ﬁnd WiFi available on most trains at your seat. Glacier National Park is one of AMTRAK’s leading destinations. You can train there from Seattle with an overnight along the way. One of these days we want to take the Starlight train from Los Angles up the West Coast to Seattle where we can spend a couple nights, then board the train for Glacier Park and spend three days there sightseeing. When I was quite young I was with the family on a train heading east out of Seattle and we went through Glacier Park and I still remember the beauty of the area. It’s much like the Canadian Rockies. There are tours you can purchase through AMTRAK that will include Glacier National Park and surrounding area. Other tours you may purchase include the West Coast Spectacular, a 10-night journey that includes Seattle, Napa Valley, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more. There are interesting train trips all over the world today. One is the Deccan Odyssey’s luxury train to the Deccan Plateau, India. You travel the state of Maharashtra including Mumbai, Goa and Kolhapus. The train has 44 air-conditioned suites for 88 passengers. Your meals are taken mostly in the diner with ﬁne wines. You can cross Australia by train using private cabins aboard and don’t forget the
Trans Siberian operating between Moscow and Shanghai, which takes a week. Here at home you can travel from the West to Chicago, change trains to New York for a few days, then head south to Miami and soak up the sun before returning home in the West. You could also spend a couple days in New Orleans visiting some of the famous restaurants while in the French Quarter. The fares vary depending on the season you wish to travel. Most vacationers use the rails during May through September. There are rail passes, hot-deals and discounts. It all depends on the age of the passenger and date of travel. Be sure to take interesting reading material in case the scenery becomes boring. In the future, there may be high-speed rail service in the United States. Right now there is talk of a line running between San Diego and San Francisco, which will run through Los Angeles. If the train travels at 250 MPH it will take a very short time between L.A. and San Francisco. I have also read that there may be a high-speed rail link between Tampa and Orlando, Fla. Some have talked about a line between Southern California and Las Vegas. I don’t know where the money will come from to build any high-speed rail line anywhere in America but, one never knows! To get important information contact your experienced travel agent or phone Amtrak at: 1-800-872-7245 or VIA Rail Canada at: 1-888-842-7245. Have a wonderful time!

IN THE KITCHEN
Elegant entertaining Summer entertaining is easy with simple, crowd-pleasing recipes from light bites to sweet delights that require almost no time in the kitchen. Invite over a few of your closest friends, heat up the grill and set out your favorite wines for a truly memorable outdoor dinner party. Select simple recipes that can be prepared ahead of time and quickly seared on the grill once your guests have arrived. Everyone will enjoy the food and you’ll love that you’re not trapped in the kitchen. Prep, chop and marinate everything then store it all in containers. Continue the trend of simplicity by serving food-friendly wines, such as those from Las Rocas. Las Rocas, which literally means “the rocks” because of the rocky soil where the grapes are grown, produces an incredibly vibrant Garnacha and refreshing Rosé that pair wonderfully with these dishes. Make the occasion truly special by beginning the festivities at sundown to take advantage of the cool breezes and beautiful sunset. Line the tables with a row of small candles, hang sparkling white lights from the trees and put on your favorite music. Your guests may never want to leave. For more information, visit www.lasrocaswine.com.

RIM COUNTRY PLACES CHAPTER 21: MAZATZAL CITY
If you have made a practice of exploring new places in the Rim Country, you have undoubtedly been taken by surprise to come upon some hidden pocket of beauty you never saw before. I gasped with awe the ﬁrst time I stood on the mesa overlooking the junction of Pine Creek with the East Verde River, about 11 miles west of Payson. The mountains close in from all sides to hold this well-watered place in their embrace. An alluvial plain shows telltale signs of dykes that once channeled water to irrigate the ﬁelds. Although there were no signs of current occupation, it was obvious the place had been settled at some time in the past. Not all unoccupied Rim Country places are of interest in the present day, but this one is so ﬁlled with signiﬁcant historical events it warrants our attention. It was in this ﬁeld that a bloody battle took place in 1875. A detachment of soldiers was forcing a march of Tonto Apache and Yavapai Indians from their reservation in the Verde Valley to a new location along the Gila River at San Carlos. It was February and snow blown by the wind made the air bitter cold. The native bands were suffering as they trudged on foot over the rocky trails, prodded by the soldiers. Everyone was hungry, babies were dying, old people were falling by the way and some of the people escaped to hide out in the uplands. In the midst of this tension and pain an argument arose between the tribes over who owned a deer that had been shot. Hunting as STAN BROWN they went was the best way for them to satisfy their hunger. The argument deteriorated into a riot between opposing groups as Yavapai and Apache attacked each other. The soldiers tried to stop the riot and ﬁred their riﬂes, and when quiet descended many lay dead across this open ﬁeld. Over the next three years the ﬁrst White settlers to arrive found the bones of the victims still scattered over the area. The following year, 1876, saw new activity here along Pine Creek. The presiding elders of the Mormon Church in Joseph City, Ariz., sent a contingent of men to scout the region between the Mogollon Rim and the Salt River, for a possible Mormon settlement. These men - John Bushman, Pleasant Bradford, William C. Allen and Peter Hansen - found the country almost inaccessible and still under the threat of renegade Indians. Their report for possible settlement was negative. However, the superior grazing available in the Tonto Basin was too good to pass up, so the next year another group of the “saints” came from St. George, Utah, to make a reconnaissance. It was 1877 when, at the call of Erastus Snow, six men made the trip. They were John Willis, Thomas Clark, Alfred J. Randall, Woodward Freeman, Revilo (Vi) Fuller, and Wyllys (Wid)

Fuller. They came to the place that had been settled by Davy Gowan, later called Gisela, and marked it as a good spot for a settlement. Then they followed Rye Creek to the northwest, and crossing a low divide they came upon the open meadows that would be occupied later by the Doll Baby Ranch. Just beyond, along the East Verde River in what today is designated as the Mazatzal Wilderness, they came to the mouth of Pine Creek. The area was lush with grass and plentiful water. Also, it was far to the west of the Apache reservations and the occasional threat of marauding Indians. They found a prospector named Jim Samuels claiming squatter’s rights in the area, so the Mormon representatives bought his claim for $75 and divided the land among the six of them. Samuels told them the adjacent mountains were named the Mazatzals and the pioneers called their prospective settlement Mazatzal City.  They then returned home and gave a very positive report to the church authorities. The following year settlement began. In March of 1878 John Willis returned with his family and a herd of cattle. He was followed closely by the families of Woodward Freeman and Rial Allen. That summer Vi Fuller brought his family, ﬁrst to Pine and then he moved down Pine Creek to the growing new settlement. Wid Fuller’s wife had died during the interim, and so he and his brother did not return at this time. By the end of the year the others had been joined by the families of Alfred J. Randall, Cecil Allen, and Marion Allen. The village quickly became a close-knit community. The Federal Census of 1880 recorded a population of 38 in Mazatzal City. They included the names of Rial Allen, his brother John Allen, C. Fuller, Revilo Fuller, John Hough, and W. N. Nelson. At that time or immediately after the census taker had left, other brothers of Rial Allen joined the com-
munity: Cecil, Alexander, and Francis Marion. The families organized the East Verde Branch of the Mormon Church, with Revilo Fuller as presiding elder. It seems that the settlement was destined to be short lived. While no reports of quarterly stake meetings were received by the church authorities from the Pine Ward before May 27, 1882, the east Verde Branch at Mazatzal City never did make a report.  There were disadvantages to the location. The secluded place along these two rivers was extremely hot in summer. It was terribly isolated and other squatters upstream were claiming water rights to Pine Creek. In addition, it turned out that Mazatzal City was on a traditional, major trail of the Apache Indians. So in the spring of 1879 the Mormon settlers had begun to migrate north to the settlement of Pine. Some bands of Apaches were living in the mountains - escaped from the long march and others who broke off the reservation and roamed the uplands. Occasionally they made raids, sending fear through the settlements. Whenever word came from Fort McDowell and Fort Apache that renegade Apaches were on the loose, settlers hurried to makeshift forts or boarded up in their log cabins. Then in July of 1882 a band of 100 Apaches left a bloody trail of burned ranch buildings, stolen cattle, and dead settlers along the trail from Fort Apache and San Carlos to the East Verde River. Climbing up to the top of the Rim they made a stand at East Clear Creek against several battalions of U. S. Cavalry. The result was the Battle of Big Dry Wash, which ended Apache resistance. This event was something of the last straw for most of the Mazatzal City families, and many of them abandoned their well-watered ﬁelds to join the others at Pine.  However, the settlement apparently was not completely abandoned. Historian James H.
McClintock wrote in 1921, “The author, in September 1889, found a very prosperous little Mormon settlement on the east Verde, raising alfalfa, fruit and livestock. It was called Mazatzal City and lay within a few miles of the Natural Bridge, which is on the lower reaches of Pine Creek before the stream joins the East Verde.” When you hike down the East Verde, past the Doll Baby Ranch, into the Wilderness Area and explore the site of Mazatzal City at the mouth of Pine Creek, be careful of the open, rock lined cistern. Also scout out the places where old ranch houses stood with beds of iris that still bloom. Maybe you can guess the “occupants” to several unmarked graves in the area.  The source of information about the Mormon settlement of Mazatzal City and Gisela originated in an interview Ranger Fred W. Croxen had with Vi Fuller in the early 1920s. His description was thereafter repeated, almost verbatim, by Dr. & Mrs. Robert Anderson in A Brief History of Pine and Strawberry, by Jerrell G. Johnson in his booklet about Davy Gowan, The Arizona Scotsman, and by Ralph E. Fuller in a history for the Pine Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Mike Anderson’s thesis, early Settlement Of Pine Arizona, and James H.

COVER STORY | TERESA MCQUERREY
Rodeo stars of the future The long tradition of rodeo in the Rim Country continued this past weekend with hundreds of young rodeo athletes. The Arizona High School Rodeo Association State Finals took place at the Payson Event Center. Looking west at the stoplight by the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino there were horse trailers, pickups and recreational vehicles as far as the eye could see and clouds of dust rising from the event center arena. Rodeo. The state’s best young rodeo athletes opened their 2012-2013 season in Payson in September and concluded it with their state finals June 12-15. The purpose of the Arizona High School Rodeo Association is to promote high school rodeo on a statewide scale and work toward bringing statewide recognition to the sport of rodeo. It strives to promote professional conduct and good sportsmanship at various rodeo events. Members compete in bareback and saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, goat tying, tie-down and
breakaway calf roping, barrel racing, pole bending, cutting and team roping. The cowboy or cowgirl and the animals used in the rodeo compete against themselves and the clock, as much as they compete against each other. Another aspect of the Arizona High School Rodeo Association state finals is a shooting event. The 22 long rifle shooting event was at the Tonto Rim Sporting Association Jim Jones Shooting Range June 12 and the trap shooting event was at Bird Busters of Payson Trap and Skeet Club located in Rye. The finals included a queen contest; jackpot calf roping and breakaway for cash prizes; and the all-important points competition. The young people also enjoyed a “Cowboy Prom” at the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino Event Center as well as a closing dinner and awards presentation. Contestants representing Rim Country included Bryce Stodghill and Chelsie Stodghill, both of Pine, Monty James and Quinton Wells, both of Payson.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Before you adventurous Arians charge right into those new projects, take a little time to learn where you’ll be going so you can avoid getting lost before you get there. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your time is devoted to career demands through much of the week. But Venus, who rules your sign, might be planning how (and with whom) you’ll spend your weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t be put off by the surprising turn in the way your project is developing. You’ve invested enough time in it to know how to make all the necessary adjustments. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The work week goes smoothly for the most part. But a weekend visit to a place in your past could hold surprises for your future, especially where romance is involved. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A sudden attack of shyness for the usually loquacious Lion could be a sign that deep down you’re not sure enough about what (or whom) you had planned to talk up in public. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Deal with that job-related problem on-site — that is, at the workplace. Avoid taking it home, where it can spoil those important personal plans you’ve made. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It’s a good time to let those favorable comments about your business dealings be known to those in a position to be helpful. Don’t hide your light; let it shine. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Avoid added pressure to finish a project on deadline by steering clear of distractions. To put it somewhat poetically: Time for fun — when your tasks are done. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be uneasy about an offer from a longtime colleague. But before you reject it, study it. You might be surprised at what it actually contains. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Deal firmly with a difficult family matter. It’s your strength they need right now. You can show your emotions when the situation begins to ease up. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A recent dispute with some co-workers might not have been completely resolved. But other colleagues will be only too happy to offer support of your actions. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Let go of that Piscean pride long enough to allow someone to help you with a surprising development. That could make it easier for you to adjust to the change. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to open up to possibilities is why people like you are often among our most popular political leaders. © 2013 King Features Syndicate

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH
Treating animal bites BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. 2013 NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you tell me the best way to treat pet bites? I have three young children, and we live in a neighborhood where every family except us has at least one pet. Most are dogs. I don’t want to overreact to a tiny scratch, but I need to know what to do with a more serious bite. — A.M. ANSWER: I’m limiting my remarks to cat and dog bites. Wild-animal bites require more involved treatment and are best taken care of in a hospital setting. A domesticated animal that has bitten a child or adult should be observed for 10 days to see if it exhibits signs of rabies. The threat of rabies is small, but maximal precautions have to be taken because rabies is such a deadly illness. Unprovoked bites from an animal raise the suspicion of rabies. Less-serious bites, the ones that can be treated at home, are copiously irrigated with sterile saltwater. Not many homes have sterile saltwater, so the bite should be washed with soap and water and then irrigated with tap water. After the irrigation, apply a disinfectant like Betadine (povidone iodine). Inspect the wound daily for any signs of infection — skin redness or pus. If you see those signs, take the child to a doctor. If the child’s immunizations are up to date, all is well. If they are not, he or she needs a tetanus booster. If the child has had no tetanus immunizations, the series should begin right away. Wounds that are large, that bleed, that are quite deep or are in a place, like the face, where they might be deforming should be taken care of by a professional. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I’m in my 60s and never had a major illness. I take no medicines. In the past three months, I have been wakened from sleep with a dull pain in the center of my chest. My husband told me to take Mylanta. I did, and got instant relief. What do you think of this pain? — V.P. ANSWER: Pain that wakens a person from sleep must be taken seriously and ought to be reported to the family doctor. However, the response you got from taking Mylanta (an antacid) makes me think of GERD — gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as heartburn. Stomach acid and digestive juices spurt into the esophagus, a structure not equipped to deal with them like the stomach can. If this nighttime pain of yours keeps coming back, put 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed to keep stomach juices in the stomach when you lie down. My first statement about nighttime pain has to be observed. You need to see the family doctor to be certain this is heartburn and not one of the many other serious possibilities. The booklet on coronary artery disease, another cause of chest pain, details its signs and symptoms. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 101W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. 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. 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 328536475. © 2013 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved
