As the school season approaches us once again, PCK is working to gather up supplies for the more than 150 underprivileged children right here in Payson. For this Back-to-School Drive we are looking for donations of pencils, pens, paper, crayons, calculators, backpacks and any other art and/or school supplies. If you are able to buy even just one item, it will go to a child who will appreciate it more than you know. Donation boxes are located at Walgreens, The Time-Out Thrift Store, Walmart and Safeway. You may also leave your donations at the PCK center located at 409 S. Tonto St. in Payson.

It’s almost that time of the year again — school starts July 29. Children are going to need their vaccines up to date in order to register for school. The state of Arizona will no longer be providing vaccines for any underinsured children. For those who have children that fall into this category, please contact your family doctor as soon as possible to get those school shots. The Gila County Health Department can provide some of the shots your child may need, but you must bring your child’s immunization record and your insurance card when you visit our office. Some of the vaccines are in short supply, so don’t delay. The health department is located at 107 W. Frontier, across the street from the post office, in Payson. Call (928) 474-1210 for more information.

JULY 24, 2013 • RIM REVIEW | 3



Several days before traveling out of town on vacation, I begin a list of items that I don’t want to forget. I begin with medications and toiletry needs as well as clothing and all the other things I don’t wish to forget including camera, glasses, etc. So far (knock on wood) I have not yet forgotten anything I required on a trip. Your list will vary according to your destination. Are you spending time in a tropical climate, cool climate, cold and stormy climate? Will you require a raincoat, umbrella, water repellent shoes, swimsuit, towels? Just before packing, my list is usually a stanKEN BROOKS dard page long. First, let’s discuss those areas I don’t believe I want to travel to for various reasons. I suggest staying away from Mexico, Korea, some Middle East countries, as well as West Africa. Check with the U.S. State Department on what the conditions are regarding safety in the country or countries you plan to visit. In the United States during the spring I would avoid so-called tornado alley in parts of Texas and Oklahoma and in the late summer and early fall, the Atlantic Coast in the Florida area because of hurricane season. Lookout for travel scams advertised on the Internet and cable TV. Do not give suppliers advance payment without a written contract. Be sure to use hotel and resort in-room safes for money storage, cameras and passports. If there are none, hide money under lamps and in shoes. There continue to be new airport rules pertaining to security often causing long lines at the airport check-point. You no longer have to remove your shoes if you are 75 or older. The newer rules ban almost all liquids, creams and gels from being carried aboard flights. Pack these items in your checked luggage. You can still bring baby formula, breast milk or juice if you are traveling with a child. TSA says it will be checking carry-on items more completely this summer. Here are some travel tips: Whether you are going abroad or traveling within the U.S., you’ll quickly realize that they do things differently than they do back home. If you do decide to travel to Mexico be aware that you won’t be able to speed the people up there. Most move at a different pace. The same is true in the islands. Hot weather promotes slower motion. Know what the charges will be for your checked baggage. Will a meal be served during your flight and is it complimentary? Southwest Airlines is one of the only airlines flying domestically that does not charge for checked bags. This can change any day. Southwest, however does not offer seat selection as most other carriers do. And, they do not serve any in-flight meals. Be careful not to over pack. You’ll hate carrying your bags around if they weigh too much. If there is only a slight chance you

might use a piece of clothing, leave it at home. Most cruise ships today are so large you may never be seen even twice by another passenger. Don’t be afraid to get extra miles out the clothes you bring. You might study up on the basics of the language which is in use in the country you plan to visit. Just a little bit of knowledge can help get you out of a jam. Don’t drink tap water if you are in Mexico, South America, the Middle East or any other poor country. Purchase bottled water. And, don’t use ice made from tap water in these locations. Most hotels provide bottled water in the rooms. Be sure to take sunscreen and use it when outside. You can avoid skin cancer by doing so. Be sure to apply often and cover well each time. In many locations pickpockets work the sidewalks, putting wallets and purses at risk. Often two men will work as a team. These robbers are also after your cameras and other hand-carry items. If you are planning a trip to Europe you should know that violent crime is much less of a problem there than here at home. If you are planning a trip to the Caribbean, check with the U.S. State Department regarding which islands may not

be safe. It varies from month to month. If you decide to take a tour around your island, consult your hotel concierge who will suggest coach and private car companies that are reliable. If you rent a car, don’t leave expensive items while you are away from the car. They may be stolen. Your hotel or resort room may have sliding glass doors. Be sure to lock these while you are away from your room. Many travelers forget to do this while on vacation. Never take valuables to the beach. You don’t want to leave purses, wallets or jewelry unattended while you go for a swim. Whatever you do, don’t buy drugs in a foreign country. It may be easy, but be very careful. Tourists wind up in jail almost every day getting caught doing so. Bring a good book to read while relaxing or on public transportation. Make a photocopy of your passport and credit card numbers. Carry these items with you. Also, it’s a lot easier to obtain new articles if you can show authorities copies. Always carry some identification. Your wallet, bracelet or card may satisfy this need. Understand your health insurance completely. Some companies will not cover you away from the U.S. You can purchase

travel insurance before leaving home. Mark all your bags inside and out with your name, address and telephone number or a designate appointed by you. Bring two passport size photos and a photocopy of your birth certificate in case you lose your passport. Keep a wallet-sized card with you that includes emergency phone numbers and U.S. government phone numbers in the country you are visiting. Avoid protest groups. If you see an unattended package, move away and call the police. Ask permission before photographing strangers that you find interesting. Do not become the “ugly American” speaking loudly or boorish and never act as though you own the world. Never leave your hotel room unlocked. Do not joke about bombs or smuggled items. Airport authorities will not find that funny, nor will you. Many are flying to Hawaii this year to enjoy this bit of heaven. Don’t plan to travel during school holidays. Think about seeing Hawaii during the “off season” of winter. Don’t cram too much sightseeing into one vacation. Spread it around over several visits. Be sure to stick to one or two of the islands.

When a person looks at the Mogollon Rim from most locations in Payson, Milk Ranch Point is easy to recognize, jutting like a crooked finger into the foothills east of Pine. This distinctive name was not bestowed on it when the cartographer with General Crook and his chief aide John Bourke made the earliest map in 1870. His name was Webber and he placed his name on the creek that had its headwaters on the east side of what he simply labeled “the promontory.” On the west side of the promontory he named the drainage “Krausses Creek” — later to be named Pine Creek. The 1880s were eventful years in the settlement of the Rim Country. Mormon families sent to establish a community founded Mazatzal City on the East Verde River and the town of Pine on the creek they named for the magnificent forest. A number of the families based their economic welfare on raising cattle. The herds could graze in the lovely meadows just west of the village as well as browse throughout the forest. During the warm summer months it was the custom to drive the cattle up onto the Rim where the grasses were fresh and lush. Mike Anderson in his history of Pine, refers to this cattle industry and says, “A number of families participated in this commercial activity, among them the Fullers, Randalls, Lazears, Hunts and Allens.” The families all had separate brands and ran their STAN BROWN cattle together, as was customary in the 1880s before fences were introduced. At roundup time they worked together, separating the cattle by brands. The country both below and on the Mogollon Rim was riddled with canyons making the roundups difficult. Oral histories indicate that the Rial Allen family was probably the first to take advantage of the Rim for grazing cattle and dairy cows. This was accommodated by a trail leading up from their home in Pine, and they soon were selling dairy products to the residents of Pine. Other potential customers included travelers and freighters along the nearby Crook Road. The Allens grazed cattle there from early spring to autumn and the establishment of a dairy farm on the promontory was a natural development. It wasn’t long before the easily identified point on the Rim was called Milk Ranch Point. Rial Allen was a bishop in the church at Pine and the Mormon custom of assistance to the needy found a response in his wife Susan. In 1881 she established the Ward’s relief society, and milk, butter and cheese were welcome gifts in the distri-

He imagined a railroad line running from the Atlantic and Pacific transcontinental railroad going through Flagstaff, down over the Mogollon Rim, through Payson, over to the mines at Globe, and thence on to the Gulf of Mexico. It would connect the lumber, cattle and copper resources of Arizona to a worldwide seaport. It was a big enough picture to set everyone’s heart racing and minds spinning. As for Pine and the Milk Ranch Point, it meant a market for daily products among the railroad workers. In May 1883, a survey was completed from Flagstaff to the edge of the Rim, and in December of that year the order CONTINUED ON PAGE 7


RIM REVIEW • JULY 24, 2013


Losing a battle of wits with a fishy nitwit Man, I’m flying. Well, I’m not flying, exactly — but my little caddis fly dry pattern is whipping back and forth overhead with the insectish verisimilitude of Superman in 3-D. I’m like, golden, dude, standing on the wet crossing of the East Verde with enough fly line unfurling overhead to make two first downs. I kid you not: I’m that good. Rainbows rise on every hand, each setting off little ripples of hope. Some hungry monster trout noses the water off to my right — daring me. I let loose my long line. The imitation insect alights on the water just above my target. It floats sluggishly downstream — perfectly placed. Float. Float. Float. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Recover. Recoil. Backcast. Let loose. Repeat. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. I stifle a riffle of stress. Now, normally, I’d be perfectly happy just to have so much fly line in the air all at once, working a stretch of water that definitely has fish in it on a work day. But I made a big mistake a couple of days ago. I stopped to chat with Dennis Pirch, our outdoor columnist. We quickly agreed to link arms in a crusade to promote the East Verde River as a trout stream. Arizona Game and Fish and the Payson Chapter of Trout Unlimited have already developed a plan to improve the trout habitat there. The timing’s perfect, since the Town of Payson has lots of heavy equipment up there to build the Blue Ridge pipeline, and an unused $250,000 in the budget for stream habitat enhancement. But I digress. I was going to explain how the seemingly benign Dennis Pirch complicated my effort to reach a higher state of consciousness with a fly line mantra. See, I made the mistake of bragging to Dennis about my last East Verde outing. He’s the outdoor icon I have ever aspired to become. He’s done things like water ski behind a sturgeon the length of Roosevelt Lake, train wolf cubs as bird dogs and teach grizzly bears how to break a double arm bar wrestling hold. So he’s a little intimidating for an outdoors duffer like me. But I don’t have that many wham-bam trout days, so I’d be jiggered if I wasn’t going to brag a little. Fortunately, I had the foresight not to reveal my tally: Which totaled three. He congratulated me enthusiastically — seemingly sincere. He’s like that: Gratingly generous in spirit. He said he loves fishing the East Verde. Said a friend of his worked the creek last week. Said he caught and released more than 30 trout. Thirty. THIRTY. As in three dozen. Thirty. So here I am again, casting my fly upon the waters. I’ve never in my life had 30 nibbles, never mind, three dozen trout in hand. So, I’m like, feeling pressure. Doesn’t help that I know I’m up against a bunch of

clueless hatchery rainbows — and still not catching anything. Turns out, hatchery rainbows are the aimless and stunted offspring of some pretty awesome wild trout. Rainbow trout emerged as their own species in the ebb and flow of a sequence of Ice Ages some 40,000 years ago, as the advance and retreat of the ice sheets and glaciers created and then isolated a great network lakes and rivers. The beautiful rainbows wound up in a series of streams along the Pacific Coast of North America. They’re genetically almost identical to steelheads, which start off as little trout in headwater streams and lakes before migrating out into the great blue ocean. There, they live for 11 years and grow to 55 pounds. They eventually return to the rivers of their birth like salmon, swimming upstream to spawn. By contrast, the largest rainbow caught in Arizona came out of Willow Beach in the Colorado River — a 32inch-long beast that tipped the scales at 22 pounds, 5.5 ounces. Now endangered, mostly as a result of all our dam building, steelhead trout still haunt the oceans and swim to a handful of headwaters to continue the ancient cycle. One recent study by researchers from Oregon State University discovered that ocean-going steelheads continue to mix their genes (delicate phrase, that) with wild rainbows, which never venture out to sea. In fact, the study found that 40 percent of the genes in the struggling steelhead population came from the still-wild rainbows. Interestingly, the hatchery rainbows apparently mingle genetically very little with the steelheads or their wild rainbow cousins. The study suggests wild rainbows and ocean steelheads are really a single species, with a mysteriously diverse lifestyle. That strikes me as very interesting — although not particularly helpful with my developing spiritual crisis.

I cast again. The fly floats down through a whole crater field of ripples left by rising trout. No bite. No nibble. No heart-stopping swirl below the surface. I frown. At this moment, a giant trout — maybe a steelhead — launches himself from the stream, traveling in a graceful arch over my fly, before landing on the far side with a thunderous splash. In fact, the wave sinks my fly, like a fleet of garbage barges in a tsunami. That’s it. I don’t have to take this. I’m gonna get my camera. Just do me one favor: Don’t tell Dennis.

Spicy Mustard Chicken Kebabs

Jalapeño Peach Shrimp Skewers

Master Mediterranean grilling Abundant plates of fresh vegetables, delicate fish from the nearby sea and splashes of olive oil are all hallmarks of traditional meals found in the Mediterranean. The Mediterranean diet has been embraced for thousands of years by those living along the Mediterranean Sea, and is now followed around the world as consumers discover its delicious flavor components and researchers uncover its countless health benefits, including helping to prevent heart attacks and strokes according to a study conducted by The New England Journal of Medicine. It’s easy to embrace this healthy lifestyle during grilling season by giving your grill a Mediterranean diet makeover with the Pompeian family of oils and vinegars. You can enjoy the benefits of the diet without leaving home by making simple changes, such as swapping butter and vegetable oil for grapeseed oil or OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend, and making homemade dressings and vinaigrettes by combining oils and vinegars in place of bottled versions. Grapeseed oil, which has one of the highest smoke points of all oils and is a rich source of Vitamin E, has a light taste that will not disrupt the flavors of food while cooking. This versatile, all natural oil is great to line your grill or pan with before cooking to prevent food from sticking. OlivExtra Mediterranean Blend, a healthy combination of canola, extra virgin and grapeseed oils, is the perfect all-purpose oil that represents key components of the Mediterranean diet and provides essential Omega-3 and Omega-6, monounsaturated fat and Vitamin E.

SPICY MUSTARD CHICKEN KEBABS Servings: 4 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard 2 tablespoons Pompeian OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon Pompeian White Wine Vinegar 1 pound raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch chunks To make sauce, place 3 tablespoons mustard in medium bowl. Add oil and garlic powder, and whisk until uniform. Cover and refrigerate. To make marinade, in small bowl, combine vinegar with remaining 2 tablespoons mustard. Stir until uniform. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken and marinade in large sealable plastic bag. Remove as much air as possible and seal. Gently knead marinade into chicken through bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak four in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. Alternately thread marinated chicken and onion chunks onto skewers. Bring grill to medium-high heat. Brush both sides of kebabs with sauce. Grill kebabs for 5 minutes with grill cover down. Flip kebabs and grill for 6 to 8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy.

Hungry Grilled Romaine Salad

JALAPEÑO PEACH SHRIMP SKEWERS Servings: 4 2 cups canned peach slices packed in juice, drained and blotted dry 2 tablespoons Pompeian Grapeseed Oil 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeño pepper 1 teaspoon Pompeian White Wine Vinegar 1 teaspoon brown sugar (not packed) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon salt 12 ounces (about 20) raw large shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined If using wooden skewers, soak four in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. To make sauce, place 1/4 of the peach slices in small food processor or blender. Add the rest of the ingredients except shrimp and remaining peach slices and puree until smooth. Transfer half of the sauce to small bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve (for dipping). Bring grill to medium-high heat. Evenly thread shrimp and remaining peach slices onto skewers. Brush both sides with some of remaining sauce. Grill until shrimp are cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side, brushing with remaining sauce as they cook. Serve with refrigerated sauce for dipping.

HUNGRY GRILLED ROMAINE SALAD Servings: 2 1 tablespoon Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 large heart romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise 2 dashes each salt and black pepper 1/4 cup diced tomato 1/4 cup diced red onion 1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil 2 tablespoons Pompeian Balsamic Vinegar Bring grill to high heat. Drizzle and brush 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil onto cut sides of each romaine half. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay romaine halves on grill, cut sides down. Grill until slightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes. Plate romaine halves, cut sides up. Top with tomato, onion, cheese and basil. In small bowl, whisk vinegar with remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Drizzle atop salad and enjoy. Source: Pompeian and Family Features

went out to begin construction. To the east of Milk Ranch Point, workers began blasting a tunnel into the side of the Rim in a side canyon from the upper East Verde River. The isolated location meant workers had to live on the spot, and they built stone houses near the springs that formed the East Verde. It was about a nine-mile trip along the Crook Road for dairy ranchers to deliver products to these workers. At the same time the rail bed was being cleared and the rails laid from Flagstaff, south through the forest. The Riordans, a lumbering family in Flagstaff, contracted with the Mineral Belt Railroad, as it was called, to furnish the ties and timbers. Two hundred men were working on the project, and there was a great demand for the Mormons’ dairy products. These had to be transported to the advancing site, but each month brought it closer to the farms. Slowly the rail line crept toward the edge of the Rim until by the spring of 1887 it had advanced 35 miles south of Flagstaff. The trains were running and carried some of the milk and cheese back to stores in the city. A passenger and freight station was established 10 miles south of Mormon Lake and the train carried loggers and passengers in addition to material for building to rail line. A saloon in Flagstaff was even named The

Mineral Belt, and people on both ends of the project had stars in their eyes. Milk Ranch Point had made its mark on the maps, a place now recognized above and below the Mogollon Rim. Then on Oct. 15, 1886, work on the rail line came to a sudden halt. Col. Eddy’s funding had run out, backers withheld their further support and payrolls could not be met. In December 1887, the Riordan family bought the railroad at a tax auction for $40,440. They would not extend the line further, but would use it to supply their lumber mill. This outlet for the dairy families had lasted but a little over three years. The collapse of the railroad was an economic setback for them, but they did not cry over spilt milk. Pine was thriving, as was nearby Payson, and the demand for dairy products was only growing. Milk Ranch Point would continue for some decades to warrant its name. SOURCES

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A longtime situation starts to move into a new phase. The question for the uncertain Lamb right now is whether to move with it. Facts emerge by midmonth to help you decide. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A talent for organizing your priorities allows the Divine Bovine to enjoy a busy social life and not miss a beat in meeting all workplace and/or family commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) What began as a dubious undertaking has now become one of your favorite projects. Your enthusiasm for it rallies support from other doubters-turned-believers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Accept the help of friends to get you through an unexpectedly difficult situation. There’ll be time enough later to investigate how all this could have happened so fast. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Change is a major factor for the Big Cat through midmonth. Be prepared to deal with it on a number of levels, including travel plans and workplace situations. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might not like all the changes that have begun to take place around you. But try to find something positive in at least some of them that you can put to good use. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A family member’s unsettling experience could create more problems if it’s not handled with care and love. And who’s the best one to offer all that? You, of course. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) It might not be the right time for you to start a new venture. But it’s a good time to start gathering facts and figures so you’ll be set when the GO! sign lights up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) The sagacious Sagittarius should have no trouble deciding between those who can and those who cannot be trusted to carry out a workplace commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Surprise, surprise. It looks as if that one person you once thought you could never hope to win over to your side suddenly just might choose to join you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might have to set aside your pride for now and accept a change that isn’t to your advantage. Cheer up. There’ll be time later to turn this around in your favor. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your creative self emerges as dominant through midmonth. This should help you restart that writing or arts project you’ve left on the shelf for far too long. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of encouraging others by example to come out from the shadows and enjoy life to the fullest. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

RIM REVIEW • JULY 24, 2013


Diabetic diet can be daunting BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. 2013 NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What should I eat with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol? All the advice I get tells me what I cannot eat — no potatoes, no bread, no crackers, no cereal, no fruit. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I don’t know what to eat. — C.L. ANSWER: The diet for type 1 and type 2 diabetes is not as restrictive as it once was. You can eat all the foods you mentioned. Sugar also can be eaten, something that was strictly prohibited in the past. You have to use it in moderation, and it’s best to save sugar calories for other carbohydrates by using artificial sweeteners.Weight reduction, if applicable to you, is the best way for you to control blood sugar. A 5 percent to 10 percent weight loss is a sure way to keep blood sugar where it should be. For high blood pressure, limit salt. You ought not to eat more than 1,500 mg a day of sodium. Read the sodium content of foods on their nutrition labels. For cholesterol control, cut back on fatty meats and whole-fat dairy products. You can use low-fat dairy. Carbohydrates are an issue with diabetes. Carbohydrates are sugars and starches. They should constitute 50 percent to 55 percent of your total daily calories. Fruits (yes, you can eat them), vegetables, cereals, breads, crackers, pastas and similar foods are carbohydrates. You have to get a book that lists the calorie content of foods and their protein, fat and carbohydrate makeup. These guides are in all bookstores, and they’re cheap. Breakfast shouldn’t be a problem. You can drink orange juice if you like it, have cereal, have toast and drink coffee or whatever. You need a coach in the form of a dietitian. The dietitian can help you navigate through the difficulties of understanding a diabetic diet. Your doctor or the local hospital can put you in touch with one. You also need to contact the American Diabetes Association, whose Web site is Or call 1-800-342-2383. The association will provide you with tons of information on diet and on diabetes in general.The booklet on diabetes presents this illness and its treatments in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 402W, 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. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 59-year-old man. About five years ago, I had my spleen removed due to a traumatic injury. I was vaccinated with the pneumococcus vaccine. I was told that it would last a lifetime. Does that apply to a person without a spleen? — J.K. ANSWER: The spleen is an integral part of the immune system. People who don’t have one are more susceptible to infections and, in particular, to pneumococcal infections. The pneumococcus (NEW-moeKOK-us) causes pneumonia and potentially lethal blood infections. People without a spleen need a second dose of the vaccine five years after the first dose. The pneumococcal vaccine is popularly called the pneumonia vaccine. 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.
