Proceeds will benefit the Tonto Natural Bridge in operations and areas not funded by the state of Arizona. Among the projects in which the Friends are involved are: a monument sign at the turn onto the road to the Tonto Natural Bridge from Highway 87; rebuilding the informational kiosks next to the trails; and in-

Driving through the Canadian Rockies For many years I have wanted to re-visit the Canadian Rockies. I had been there twice in the past, each time traveling by train from Vancouver. The train ride itself is wonderful moving through the beautiful Rockies in the luxury of the Canadian, which has today been completely renovated. You can still travel by the Canadian train today from Vancouver into the Rockies, getting off at Jasper National Park and seeing the Rockies by coach. The Rocky Mountaineer luxury train also departs Vancouver and only travels during the day. You leave the train each evening and are transported to hotels and motels for the night, then the next morning re-board the train and continue your journey doing sightseeing in the various parks during the day by motor coach. It’s a great way to see the Rockies. In Vancouver there is much to visit and see. The city is large and almost completely KEN BROOKS surrounded by water. There are parks, tall buildings and wonderful restaurants. Nearby is Victoria and it is available via a short ferry ride and you will enjoy sightseeing here. High in the mountains above Vancouver is the famous ski resort, Whistler. You can take a coach to visit here or board a very modern train to do the same. Plan to spend at least three days in Vancouver before moving on. We flew to Vancouver for an overnight stay before boarding the cruise ship Zuiderdam of Holland America Line for a sevennight cruise of Alaska’s Inside Passage. When the ship returned to Vancouver we took a taxi to the Hertz downtown office in Vancouver and rented an automobile to tour the Canadian Rockies. We felt an automobile would be best for us so that we could stop along the way to photograph and sightsee and not be on a schedule. The Canadian highways are in very good condition and better than most in the United States. The Canadian drivers are also very polite on the roads, which make it a pleasure to drive in Canada. The roads are also well marked. You really can’t get lost. So, from Vancouver we headed out of town into the very green countryside with rolling hills. We saw small farms, vineyards, rivers, lakes and villages as we moved in a northeast direction. Our destination was Kamloops. After driving for about five hours, we arrived in this city of 85,000, which is located in a green valley and hosts skiers during the winter months. A very pleasant night was spent here. We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel that had a gourmet restaurant that was a surprise. Both Norma and I enjoyed a wonderful meal before going to bed. The next morning we got an early start bound for Jasper National Park. Many tours do not include Jasper because it is not close to Lake Louise and Banff. However, it should not be missed. Some six hours of driving later we pulled into the Fairmont Jasper Lodge. The lodge is spread over many acres near a beautiful lake with some 400 rooms. We opted for one of the rooms located in the actual lodge building. The lodge faces the lake and guests can rent canoes to paddle around if they wish. You can enjoy a fine swimming pool, tennis, a horseback ride or just relax at the lakeside and drink in the amazing scenery. Inside are two restaurants, a shopping mall and just about everything you might want in a mountain lodge. The Fairmont Hotels are known the world over for their luxury and service. One of the sightseeing tours we took here was a cruise on spectacular Lake Maligne. This is one of the more scenic lakes in the world, believe me — bordered by jagged, high, rugged and snow-capped mountains. It must be seen to believe. Several films have been made here and you may recognize the area from movies. The boat trip alone was more than an hour-anda-half and is one of the high points of our Rockies travel. We also took time to wonder about the 5,000-population town of Jasper and found it to be very clean and primarily catering to tourists. We enjoyed our two-night stay at the Jasper Lodge before moving on to Lake Louise. The drive here was via the Bow River Parkway, which runs through the Bow Valley. The water in the lakes and rivers was the highest it had been in 40 years

because of heavy snowfall the past winter and a large amount of rain in the spring. This added up to fastmoving waters in the rivers and high water in the lakes. While traveling the Bow River Parkway we came to the Columbia Icefields about half way to Lake Louise. These fields are actually a long series of glaciers spread over many miles. If you choose, you can take a Brewster Ice Explorer tour that travels right on the glacier. We decided not to stop but to continue on the road to Lake Louise. The scenery from Jasper going south makes it one of the most beautiful drives I have yet taken. At almost every turn we would oh and ah because of the rugged, snow- and glacier-covered mountains descending steeply to the valleys. These mountains are as rugged as the Grand Tetons, except larger and more plentiful. Also along the road we saw several black bear right at the roadside as well as large elk and goats. Lake Louise is located behind the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel. If you are not a guest at the hotel there is a public parking lot next door where you may park and walk the path that winds it’s way in front of the hotel for a good view of Lake Louise. You will find quite a few nice hotels and motels at the village, but only the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel offers views of the lake from your room at the hotel. Our room offered a perfect view of this most amazing and beautiful lake buried in the Rockies. You must have seen photographs at some time in your life of this emerald lake bordered by tall, rugged, snow-capped and glacier-rimmed mountains. To see it in person is even more amazing. Norma and I joked that the view of Lake Louise from the shore side looked so perfect that it must be a Disney set. We stayed two nights here enjoying the scenic drives around the area and a tram ride to the top of one of the mountains to view the entire area from 8,000 feet altitude. The hotel offers 10 restaurants and an assortment of public rooms. For lunch one day we sat at a large window facing the lake view with a harpist playing enjoyable music while we ate. From our hotel room window we could admire the lake setting and I frequently took photos of the different coloring and cloud formations as they changed. It really looked like a movie set. You should see it for yourself someday.

Now, it was time to head to Banff. The drive is not very far and again with very fine roads. We found the town of Banff looking somewhat like a ski town in Europe. The downtown area offers many nice shops and restaurants and on one end is located the Fairmont Banff Hotel. This is the largest building in town and rises some 10 floors. The Canadian Pacific Railroad began the construction in 1882. It has been remodeled several times since. We thought it resembled an old palace. It was easy to get lost in, even after staying two days. Again, the scenery is some of the best mountain landscape I have yet seen in my travels of the world. As in the other national parks we drove the area to get a good look at the lakes, mountains, wildlife and villages and towns. The Canadian Rockies live up to their reputation as some of the most beautiful scenery in North America and the world. Don’t miss it! After a week of driving through the mountains we headed south and east and into the prairies to Calgary, Alberta. We discovered that on this Friday it was the beginning of the Calgary Stampede. This is one of the best rodeos in North America, as you probably know. I did not realize that the Stampede lasted a total of 10 days. We took in the first day. It was much like a large state fair, with rides for the children, stock viewing and a large stadium that sat over 20,000 fans. We were lucky to get tickets for the opening ceremonies on this Friday afternoon. The opening included a large marching band, politicians and celebrities being introduced, as well as at least 80 Royal Canadian Mounted Police doing all sorts of formations on their horses. Following the ceremonies, the actual rodeo began first with bronc riding followed by calf roping. At least 80 percent of the cowboys were from the United States and were the best I have ever seen anywhere. Even at our hotel there was a lot of Stampede activity in the restaurant and bar with most wearing western gear. The next afternoon we boarded our Delta Airlines flight returning home. What a wonderful vacation! I hope you can visit Alaska and the Canadian Rockies in your lifetime.

POTENTATE OF TIME Matthew Bridges an 1800th century psalmist and musician has written a famous musical composition focusing on Christ and crowning Him King. Since Bridges, many additional psalmists and musicians have added other stanzas to this hymn. This spiritual anthem enfolds the glorious yet holy mystery of God and His continual interactive commitment to His covenant promise to mankind. Although we live in a different type of democracy than kings, queens and lords, we can still appreciate the symbolism of the overall centerpiece of this ballad. My favorite stanza is: Crown Him the Lord of years, The Potentate of time, SIMONE LAKE Creator of the rolling spheres, Ineffably sublime. As I mediate on the rich truth of these four lines, scripture comes forth ... The Lord of years ... reminds me of the eternal love that never fades between God and those that have heard the gospel of salvation — “the words of truth believed in Him and were sealed with the promise of the Holy Spirit guaranteed of our inheritance” — Ephesians 1:13-14 And it reminds me of God’s unending promise to those that are His in Ezekiel 36:28 — “You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.” Potentate of time ... reminds me of the omnipotent and omnipresence of the only One true God. The God that exudes all time before, now and beyond. Time does not hold God nor is He bound by any type or form of time. Creator of the rolling spheres ... completes the stanza with a reminder of the God in Genesis and the Messiah of the gospels are One and the same, confirming with full disclosure that Jesus is God. “Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was” — John 17:5 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” — John 1:1 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” — John 1:14 Ending the stanza is the proper closure. Praise! Words that are indescribable, so incapable of expression, that awe is the only righteous response is great grand praise. Praise to the high exalted One that is elevated on high, seated on His throne with great excellence. And if the words cannot flow from your tongue, do so in your heart and mind. My second favorite stanza (if not equal to the first): Crown Him the Lord of love, Behold His hands and side, Rich wounds, yet visible above,  In beauty glorified. No angel in the sky  Can fully bear that sight,  But downward bends His wond’ring eye At mysteries so bright. The Lord of love explains the purpose of His proper crowning. Evidence is the nail pierced hands and the sword piercing of His side. Those precious wounds solidify the promise God brought to the New Testament. This long extended love first starting in Genesis foretold in the prophets and fulfilled with Christ the word becoming flesh. Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified — The wounds of the hands and side are the pure evidence of the Lamb of God being a once and for all a final sacrifice for all to have the opportunity to know Him and reign with Him. The sign very much like the rainbow confirming that God does not break His promise especially when He swears by Himself.

No angel in the sky, bending his burning eye on the mysteries so bright — This line gives me great moments of pondering ... The angels above whose complete and sole purpose is to praise God takes the time to look down on earth with such intensity at the mystery of love that God has on His people. Observing the sealed faithfulness of God, brought by the obedience of Christ. Peter speaks of this in his first letter “Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” — I Peter 1:10 The end of the hymn concludes our only response as His creation. What a fitting way to conclude a song. Giving honor to Whom honor is due. Join me ... “All Hail Redeemer Hail For Thou has died for me And hailed me as thy Thy praise and glory has not failed Throughout eternity” All due honor and glory goes to Christ the Redeemer of all mankind Amen and Amen Reflection and Action: 1. Join me in crowning Jesus as King in your heart, soul and mind. 2. Meditate on these phrases seeking for greater understanding of who God is and what He has done for us through His Son Christ! 3. Ask God to give you greater humility and contriteness of heart in welcoming Him. Into your life only for you to yield and Hail him as your personal Redeemer!

AUGUST 1, 2012 • RIM REVIEW | 7



Driving south out of Payson on Highway 87 my imagination goes into overdrive. Each place we pass brings to mind stories of people and events: Ox Bow Hill, the Sam Haught and Chilson ranches, Rye Creek, Deer Creek, Mazatzal Mountains, Sunflower. So it goes all the way to Phoenix. Any other direction stimulates more images: west to Pine, Strawberry, Fossil Creek; north to the Rim, Crook Military Road, Happy Jack, Mormon Lake; east to Little Green Valley, Tonto Creek, Kohl’s Ranch, Christopher Creek, Gordon Canyon… and we haven’t yet climbed the Rim to Woods Canyon Lake, Forest Lakes, Heber, Show Low, on and on. The names carry with them fasSTAN BROWN cinating stories, and in this series of essays I plan to explore a number of Rim Country places. Of course, in our fastpaced society, places are less important than schedules and calendar dates. If a passenger in a car is focused on an iPod or texting friends, no way is he or she going to be captivated by the passing landmarks. We might take a lesson from the Native Americans who occupied the Rim Country before the “White invasion.” For them, the names of places carried much importance. Places set the boundaries of territories, marked the birthplaces of clans, and located the sacred homes of the Mountain Spirits. More than that, events that happened in those places taught vital lessons and held the moral code of the clan. In other words, places for the Apache and Yavapai were their bible. Their complex languages of special sounds and short syllables could communicate a shorthand version of an entire story that happened there. Here is an example. The name for a certain hill was “The place where the rattlesnake took revenge.” This name was associated with the story of a boy who disobeyed his parents, an event described in vivid detail by uncles to nephews or grandmothers to daughters while sitting around the campfire or while grinding corn. The story went on to include the consequences of the boy’s disobedience. The disobedient lad was struck by a rattlesnake at this place. He collapsed and died on that hill, unable to drag himself home or seek out a medicine man for help. This was the justice inflicted by the Spirits to bring the moral order back into balance. After the story was told, the hearers never forgot the lesson, Every time they passed that hill the name of it recalled the story and its lesson. Or when a parent perceived disrespect from a son or daughter, she could simply say the name of the hill, “The hillside where the rattlesnake takes revenge.” The Apache syllables are fewer than needed to say it in English. The boy or girl would then have received the warning. When we settled our couple of acres along the upper waters of the East Verde River in 1963, we built a cabin that became “home base” for our children and our grandchildren over the next 30 years. In seeking a name for the place, our hearts were fixed on a mountain we had seen in Colorado named “Oh Be Joyful.” That became the place name of our cabin and over the decades the name became steeped with the lore of family experiences. To this day the mention of “Oh Be Joyful” warms the hearts and fires the memories of our family members. Every family has traditions and lessons that are

carried by stories and passed on from generation to generation. In addition to the isolated act of reading or writing a book, we have oral histories that live in those stories. My grandfather used to heap several teaspoons of sugar into his coffee, and when it was suggested that might not be healthy his reply was, “If one’s good, two’s better.” That saying brings back visions of my grandfather, and all the lessons that he used to teach — most of them more worthy than “two’s better.” We lived at my grandparents’ house during the Depression when my dad was out of work, and they had a Swedish maid who used to say, “You’ve got to take the bitter with the better.” It’s a bit of wisdom that stayed with us as a family saying, but every time I hear it I can almost smell the delicious odors of my grandmother’s kitchen. So perhaps we are not that far from the culture of the Apaches after all, where our history is carried in

stories and when they are repeated they bring the past into the present. The storyteller gives speech to the mysterious presence of the ancestors, the experiences they had, and the lessons they learned. It is also true, that over the years of telling these stories, fact is not as important as truth. Truth is measured by the moral lesson embodied in the story. So it is with the places of the Rim Country. You who live here or visit here or vacation here are immersed in the echoes of voices and events associated with about every place in sight. However, only those who know the story of a given place will hear those voices or understand those events. In this series articles I hope to add to the reader’s enjoyment by learning where a place got its name and what events happened there. My plan is to go alphabetically, so next time we will visit THE APACHE TRAIL.

ROMP A dash through Sedona thunderstorms reveals the dark side of vortexes STORY AND PHOTOS BY

ALEXIS BECHMAN A clap of thunder and a flash of light sent two-dozen frightened people scurrying down Cathedral Rock. A monsoonal cell had formed overhead, interrupting a peaceful, meditative hike on one of the area’s most popular picture spots. My initial, delighted awe turned quickly to terror as the lightning ripped through the sound barrier almost directly overhead. Everyone dashed down the sandstone slope, bobbing and weaving like football players trying to find an open path through the opposing players. Like Bell Rock, Submarine Rock and every other “rock” in Sedona, we had no clear path. Years of hiking boots have pitted the ground with faded trails here and there. Some lead into a creek, while others ledge out. After a few wrong turns into the yucca and bushes, everyone reached the crowded parking lot. I could have done a victory touchdown dance. Never has the force of Mother Nature been so clear. With dozens of meandering trails, lazy rivers and breathtaking red sandstone monoliths, Sedona usually offers a tranquil retreat, perfect for hobnobbing with family and friends, buying a few crystals and eating unremarkable Mexican food. Its views and vibes attract a variety of folks, from poky tourists and New Age hippies to outdoors enthusiasts. Honestly, I fall somewhere in the middle of all those groups. While I scoff at New Age shops and their “aura” photography, I couldn’t take my eyes off a woman demonstrating how crystal pendulums can answer any of life’s questions. The pendulum, she explained, is a way to get in touch with your inner self, where all the answers already lurk. I bought one, but my brother almost immediately broke it. Go figure. Some say part of Sedona’s mystique is its vortexes, spiraling spiritual energy areas, where one’s inner self can lasso up with the energy of the universe. This force is said to have a calming effect, but sometimes this energy has a way of overtaking you. As we raced down the slopes of Cathedral Rock, everyone

yearned for just a little less connectivity. Cathedral Rock, according to Web sites, is an area with a magnetic, feminine energy that should encourage relaxation. Anyone ever stuck outside in a thunderstorm can recall the way the air takes on an electrical charge and clips with each pop of thunder — anything but relaxing. Traumatic as almost being electrocuted is, it surely leaves you grateful. I have stood on vortexes before and did not feel much of anything, except for the jostling of other tourists seeking a good vibration. Fortunately, despite my near-death experience on Cathedral Rock, I’d already enjoyed lots of those good vibrations earlier just a few miles away on what sounds like a more lowly place — Submarine Rock. It happened at sunset in a most unplanned way. After driving several hours from Payson to Sedona, my mother suggested a quick hike. One of those free travel magazines in the room suggested a place known as “Broken Arrow,” only a few miles up the road. Now, Jeep Tours are a popular activity in Sedona. They give an up-close view of the surroundings, come with a guide and involve little risk, but deliver great thrills as you amble over slick rocks and rutted roads. You find Jeep tour companies around town, especially on Main Street, where pink, green and yellow lifted Jeeps and Hummers cruise around. Unbeknownst to us, Broken Arrow is one of the more popular touring spots. We wound through an affluent neighborhood to find the Jeep trail beyond a wooden Forest Service sign warning the upcoming road was rough and not passenger vehicle worthy. A large, man-made bump made the point clear: if you can’t get over this bump, turn around now. I studied our red Jeep. While not the most hopped-up fourwheeler, it had newer tires and in the half-dozen years my mother had owned it, it had never been off road (a crime, I know). As the first of many pink Jeeps zoomed around us,

The dark skies over the red rocks of Sedona brought out the beauty of a century plant at Submarine Rock.

making the bump in the road look like more like a hiccup, my mother questioned my resolve to go further. While she loves owning a Jeep, my mother is terribly afraid to actually go where they go in the commercials. After seeing how easy the pink Jeeps made it look, I urged her onward.

AUGUST 1, 2012 • RIM REVIEW | 9

Pink Jeeps take visitors on tours to explore the red rocks of Sedona.


While we cleared the bump easily, a steep, slick, red rock shelf prompted my mother to quickly pull into the nearest “oh crap” pull-out. Another round of pink Jeeps cruised past, driving up the section with one quick rev, then pausing at the top of hill, almost mocking us, so passengers could take pictures. After such a display, I knew we had to prove our little red Jeep could do it too. Too afraid to ride, my mother stood several safe feet back as I powered the Jeep up the slope, filled suddenly with a sense of confidence (however false). Safely around what had at first appeared impossible, my mother climbed back in and tentatively asked if I wanted to go further. Of course I did. We had ground to catch up. While we never did find that caravan of pink Jeeps, my mother and I cruised over some of the most rockingly fun road. If you could rate four-wheeling in

movie terms, I would say this was PG13. The touring Jeeps have left a welletched path, with lots of turnarounds if you get scared. Our evening crescendo was hiking up Submarine Rock, a rock submerged in manzanita trees. Up a quick path, the submarine emerges. Indentations along the side of the rock appear like portholes and the rock even narrows at the top like a turret. I have stood atop many hills in Sedona, but this one topped them all. Maybe it was how the setting sun turned the sky a rosy pink, the lack of houses or the surrounding cathedral of cliffs. No postcard or guidebook can capture the vibe such a moment elicits. In one weekend, I found, Sedona had showed both its peaceful and powerful energy. Maybe those vortex gurus are onto something. Either way, I better go buy another pendulum.


From the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 179 south 3.5 miles to BackO’Beyond Road, head east. Go .6 miles to the trailhead-parking turnout on the left. The trail is 1.5 miles long if you take it from the parking lot to the saddle. Basket cairns lead the way across a wash and up a gradual slope. At a quarter-mile, the trail emerges on a broad ledge. The trail ascends a steep slope, a few notched toeholds here and there. The trail gets steeper and crosses several ledges before leveling off at a wide saddle. The path continues on around the base and can be followed for some way. BROKEN ARROW

Broken Arrow is a popular area for hikers, mountain bikers and four-wheelers. Just a couple miles past Bell Rock, turn right on Morgan Road and head past Broken Arrow Estates. If you are going to hike or bike, park in the dirt parking lot off to the left. The trail goes across the Jeep road and after 200 feet,

heads south to the foot of Battlement Mesa. The trail winds its way through the forest before ending 1.5 miles later at Chicken Point. On the way back, a half-mile from Chicken Point, a short jaunt leads to Submarine Rock. Returning by the same path, the hike is about 3.5 miles. For four-wheelers, head over the large, man-made bump at the start of the dirt road and continue on to Chicken Point. The road veers away from the hiking trail, but is roughly the same distance. The drive should take two to four hours round trip and is accessible to most high-clearance vehicles with fourwheel drive.




Mangos and kid-friendly meals Is your family tired of eating the same thing for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Not sure if trying a new recipe fits into your busy schedule? It’s easier than you think to break out of the usual routine, especially when you have these quick, kid-friendly recipes that bring a taste of the tropics to your meals. Mangos make the difference in these recipes — adding a splash of color and vibrant flavor to a savory breakfast burrito, hot panini or a tasty salmon and veggie dinner. And adding mango to the menu provides plenty of good nutrition. Mangos are an excellent source of vitamins C and A. Vitamin C promotes healthy immune function, while vitamin A is important for vision and bone growth. For more quick and easy recipes for your busy weeknights, visit

BUYING MANGOS When choosing a mango, don’t rely on color alone. Instead, gently squeeze the mango. A ripe mango will be firm with just a little give, like a ripe peach or avocado. If your mango isn’t ripe, keep it out on the counter; it will continue to ripen at room temperature, becoming sweeter and softer over several days. Once ripe, move it to the refrigerator, where whole, ripe mangos will keep for up to five days. CHICKEN AND MANGO PANINI Serves 4 1/2 loaf Italian bread, (8, 1/2-inch slices) 8 slices deli-sliced mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup whole basil leaves 1/2 red onion, sliced thin 1 large mango, peeled, pitted and sliced thin 2 cooked chicken breasts (about 1 pound total), sliced thin Layer half of the cheese on 4 slices of bread; divide basil, red onion, mango, chicken and remaining cheese among bread slices. Top with second slice of bread. Heat grill pan, panini press or large non-stick skillet over mediumhigh heat; spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place 2 sandwiches in pan (close lid or weigh down sandwiches in skillet with heavy pot). Cook sandwiches until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

MAKING PANINI WITHOUT A PRESS Don’t have a panini press? No worries — you just need a non-stick pan and one of these everyday items: • Cast iron skillet • Teakettle weighted down with water • Brick wrapped in aluminum foil • Pot, weighted down with canned goods All you need to do is: • Preheat the non-stick pan. • Spray the bottom skillet with non-stick cooking spray.

Chicken and Mango Panini

• Add sandwich. • Spray bottom of weighted object with non-stick cooking spray, place on top of sandwich.

MANGO, SAUSAGE AND POTATO BREAKFAST BURRITOS Serves 4 9 ounces (about 5) small red potatoes, washed and diced 2 teaspoons olive oil 8 ounces spicy sausage, casings removed 1 large mango, peeled, pitted and diced 6 tablespoons shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro 4 small whole-wheat tortillas In medium microwave-safe bowl, toss diced potatoes with oil and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain potatoes, set aside. In medium non-stick skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink and internal temperature reaches 170 degrees, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan with slotted spoon; drain and cool on paper towellined plate. Heat same skillet over medium heat and add potatoes. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer hot potatoes to large bowl and mix with cooked sausage, mango, cheese, and cilantro. Divide sausage and potato mixture among tortillas.

POSITIONS WANTED I will work for Free, I am a long time valley business owner, Law Enforcement Officer, Gunsmith & Machinist. I have owned about 100 vehicles in my life and have worked on most of them and yet I still do not understand or know automobile electricity and electronics. I desire to work for free in a shop that can teach me what I never learned. I will clean, sweep, wrench, wash windows, whatever you would like as long as I learn a little as we go along. This can be as many hours a day per week you desire. I can buy my own insurance and uniform if required. I have no desire to open a shop or compete as I am 70 years old and do not need your headaches. I just want to learn the things I do not know! Thank you. Payson Resident, Larry/480-650-7056

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relationships continue to thrive, but watch for any telltale signs of potential problems. Take needed action now to set things straight before they become troublesome later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your powers of persuasion, backed up, of course, by your considerable expertise, help you establish your case even to the most dubious decision-makers in your workplace. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might still be a bit reluctant to face up to some less-thanpleasant realities. But the sooner you accept the facts, the sooner you can set about making some needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Expect to make adjustments, even when things seem locked up and ready to go. But cheer up: At least one change could lead to something you’ve been hoping for. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The success of a recent project should do a lot to boost your self-confidence. You might want to start now to check out ways to make that long-deferred bigger and bolder move. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up on the pressure you might be putting on the new person in your life. It takes time for a budding relationship to blossom. Show more patience and understanding. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You have lots of inner strength in reserve. Use some of it to resist intimidation from those who might try to impose on your good nature for their own reasons. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The good news is that your on-the-job status is improving. The one cautionary note, however, involves a personal situation you might have been ignoring for too long. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Congratulations. Once again, your sharp Sagittarian “horse sense” helps you work through a complicated situation that would leave most people confused. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Plan on indulging yourself in some well-earned good times through much of the week. Then be prepared to face some thought-provoking issues by the 18th. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Positive factors continue to dominate following a recent change in both your professional and personal lives. Expect to make contact with someone from your past. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Workplace stability allows you to continue making progress on your projects. But don’t ignore your personal life. Spend more quality time with those special folks. BORN THIS WEEK You have the gift for making people feel special. Maybe because you know how special you are. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

DASH to lower blood pressure BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You’ve written about the DASH diet in the past. The directions for it are quite general. Can you provide an itemized list of what is good and what is bad to eat? It makes things simpler for me. — F.L. ANSWER: The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) doesn’t involve a detailed listing of good and bad foods. It’s a general approach that identifies the food groups that are best for lowering blood pressure. You get to pick foods from those groups that appeal to you. That’s one of the beauties of the diet: It permits many choices. Grains are one of the major groups in the diet. Grains include products made from wheat, barley, rye, oats and other such cereal grains, even grains that aren’t familiar to our diet. Every day, people should eat seven to eight servings of grain foods. A serving is a slice of bread, 1 ounce of cereal, or half a cup of cooked rice (brown), pasta or cereal. The next group is three to four servings of fruit, with a serving being equal to a medium-size fruit, a quarter-cup of dried fruit or 6 ounces of fruit juice. People also should eat four or five servings of vegetables a day, with a serving being 1 cup leafy vegetables, half a cup cooked vegetables or 6 ounces of vegetable juice. Two to three low-fat dairy products are allowed, with 8 ounces of skim milk, 1 cup low-fat yogurt or 1 1/2 ounces of low-fat cheese constituting a serving. Two meat servings a day are permitted, with 3 ounces being a serving of cooked meat, poultry or fish. Fats and oils are the final group. Two or three servings meet the requirement, with 1 teaspoon of margarine, 2 tablespoons of low-fat mayonnaise or 2 tablespoons of light salad dressing each being a serving. In addition, 1 1/2 ounces of nuts are allowed four times a week. In addition, you must keep sodium down to 1,500 mg a day. Sodium is listed on all nutrition labels. The booklet on high blood pressure speaks of the many other issues involved in controlling this widespread disorder. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 104W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Six months ago my husband, 78, had an artificial hip installed — if that’s the right word. The operation was a complete success, and he was up and walking shortly after the surgery. However, since he’s been home, he does nothing but sit. He says he’s afraid he’ll wear out the new hip. I thought that the operation was done to make people more active. Isn’t that so? — O.P. ANSWER: It is so. Mobility and freedom from pain are the reasons why artificial hips have gained such high regard. Your husband isn’t going to wear out the hip. The new joint lasts up to 25 or more years. He can do anything that his doctor has not specifically said not to do. 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.
