TRAVEL TALK | KEN BROOKS
REPOSITIONING CRUISES Twice each year, major cruise lines reposition some of their ships. You have lines that position ships from Caribbean service to Alaska for the summer period and then reposition them back to the Caribbean for winter service. The same is true for ships cruising the Mediterranean in the summer and then reposition to Florida for Caribbean cruising in the winter. Soon, there will be many ships leaving their summer posts for Florida. These repositioning cruises usually offer the public lower daily per diems than they do when on their usual schedules. Since fall is just around the corner, let’s discuss these repositioning cruises. Various ships depart Alaska to return to Florida via the Panama Canal, usually the end of KEN BROOKS September, stopping at ports that may include San Francisco or Los Angeles, one stop in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama City, one or two islands in the Caribbean and finally into Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. Fares for these voyages run from $995 to $2,500 for a 14- or 15-day cruise. Ships that will sail these warm waters offer lazy days at sea with plenty of time to relax, read a couple books, get re-acquainted with your spouse, enjoy the fine cuisine in the dining rooms and various restaurants the ship offers, get a little sun, perhaps take some spa treatments, do some swimming in the pool and simply take it easy. You might even elect to do some Christmas shopping in the ports where the ship stops. The ships that are scheduled to reposition from Alaska to Florida in September include: Celebrity Century, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium, Coral Princess, Crystal Symphony, Disney Wonder, Golden Princess, Island Princess, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Star, Holland America Lines Amsterdam, Oosterdam, Statendam, Volendam, Westerdam, Zaandam and Zuiderdam, Royal Caribbean Lines Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas. And, there are still more. And then in September, October and November there are ships that will reposition from Europe to the east coast of the U.S., mostly Florida and usually offer very interesting itineraries. Some examples would include the Norwegian Epic of NCL sailing a 13-night transit from Barcelona to Miami with stops in Ponta Delgada, Azores and St. Thomas to Miami. Fares begin at $746. The sailing begins Oct. 21. The Grand Princess sails Nov. 3 from London to Ft. Lauderdale with fares for the 13-night cruise priced from $1,158 per person with stops in Normandy (La Havre), Vigo, Spain, Lisbon, Portugal, Azores and Bermuda to Ft. Lauderdale. MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) Poesia repositions on a 16-night voyage from Genoa, Italy to Ft. Lauderdale departing Genoa Nov. 11 and calling at Barcelona, Spain, Casablanca, Morocco, Funchal, Portugal, Bridgetown, Barbados, Pointe-a-Petire, Guadeloupe, St.Thomas, USVI and Freeport, Grand Bahamas to Ft. Lauderdale. Fares begin at $998 per person, double occupancy. This is an Italian line with which I have cruised several times and enjoyed the Italian service. It attracts a pretty diverse set of guests: Spanish, French, German, British and American. Some companies offer tours in Europe before boarding a positioning ship to sail the Atlantic to Florida. YMT Vacations, a leading provider of affordable group travel packages, is offering two Europe/trans-Atlantic cruise-tours. You can discover historic cities and experience the sophistication of sailing the Atlantic. YMT’s 21-day “Highlights of Spain

Tour and Cruise” departs Oct. 14 and is priced from $1,699 per person. The package includes a six-night tour of Spain and the 13-night trans-Atlantic cruise aboard NCL’s Norwegian Epic. Guests will enjoy the art, history, culture and cuisine of Madrid, Toledo, Segovia and Barcelona. The ship will also call at Ponta Delgada, Azores and St. Thomas while on the cruise back to Miami. Another YMT tour with the trans-Atlantic cruise departs Sept. 23 and is priced from $1,799 per-person. The 22-day package includes a six-night tour of Holland, Germany and Denmark. Cities highlighted are Amsterdam, Bremen, Hamburg and Copenhagen plus the 14-night trans-Atlantic cruise aboard NCL’s Norwegian Sun with calls in Lisbon and Madeira. For more information, or to request a brochure, call YMT Vacations at 800-922-9000 or go online to www.ymtvacations.com. On another note, the Disney Wonder sails from Vancouver to San Francisco and Los Angeles departing Sept. 10. You will have three days at sea and have time to explore every inch of the ship. Onboard entertainment includes performances of “Toy Story – The Musical” and other original productions, Disney movies, interactive games in Studio Sea, wine-tastings and cooking demos for adults, character meet-n-greets for kids and Disney’s famous deck parties. In San Francisco, excursions include tours of the city aboard a fire engine and visits to the Walt Disney Museum, as well as daytrips to the Muir Woods redwood forest, wine country in Sonoma and the seaside towns of Monterey and Carmel. Disney does make sure its ships are fun for adults too, with 18-plus onboard venues that include Italian restaurant Palo, the Route 66 nightclub district and the Quiet Cove pool. We are taking the grandkids, ages 10 and 12, on a
Disney cruise early this October, sailing to the Caribbean for a week. The kids don’t know it yet. We’ll tell them in early September so they can plan their activities and shore excursions. Another positioning cruise departs Quebec City sailing to Tampa, Fla., departing on a 16-night itinerary Oct. 26. The Norwegian Dream stops at Portland, Boston, New York, Norfolk, Baltimore, Charleston, Miami, Key West to Tampa. This is a most interesting itinerary with stops at historic ports as well as the Big Apple and so much more. While sailing in the northland, be prepared for cool weather and some rain. Pack a parka and/or warm coat. The fares are low. Contact NCL on the Web or give them a call. Many people I know tell me they want to pass through the Panama Canal some day. Well, the Norwegian Jewel (NCL) sails from Los Angeles Sept. 27 on a 15-night cruise calling at Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, Puerto Chiapas, Puerto Quetzal, Puntarenas and Cartagena to Miami. The passage through the Panama Canal will be the most interesting of all. On sea days you have Karaoke, Nintendo Wii, cooking and dancing classes and can play bingo and ping pong as well as get a good tan. This will give you an introduction to Central America among other things. There are many other positioning cruises available this fall. All you have to do is contact an experienced travel agent who can give you good ideas, recommend cruise lines and ships and supply you with brochures and other information. Also, consider the purchase of travel insurance in case you have to cancel before your departure. This can save you a lot of money. Have a wonderful cruise vacation this fall. It’s usually a good time to travel with mild temperatures and less crowding.

Just as towns had previously competed for railroad lines, now they maneuvered for better roads which they felt would lead to more business opportunities. This clip from the Sept. 3, 1915 Winslow Mail with an excerpt from a Phoenix Chamber of Commerce bulletin shows some of the early angling that was going on. “Winslow is anxious to have a road built from that point to the Roosevelt dam. The road would go through Payson and it is said would be open the year around. The northern people believe that TIM EHRHARDT the co-operation of the Forest Service can be secured, as much of the line of proposed road is within the forest reserves. A party from Phoenix will make the trip to look into the possibilities of this route.” During the 1920s and 1930s, roadway construction in Arizona moved forward. The Harvey G. Bush Highway (a segment of what would eventually be Highway 87) was built with funds from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation in the early 1930s. Throughout Arizona, new roads and new highways were built and brought into the Arizona State Highway system. According to Ira A. Murphy in a Payson Centennial publication in 1984, this is what led to the establishment of a chamber of commerce here. “In 1938 plans were drawn for a north-south highway for Arizona and which called for a road that would parallel the Verde River. This route had been accepted by the state highway commission and had strong support from Flagstaff and Phoenix. “However, Alf Randall, owner of stage and mail service to Globe and Cottonwood, thought the proposed highway should be farther east and should include Payson in its service area. Harry Goodfellow, owner of Goodfellow’s Natural Bridge (now Tonto), L.E. Boardman, W.O. Haley, W.D. Boardman, Grady Harrison, James Deming, and other Payson support decided to press for a change in the routing of the planned north-south highway. Alf, a native of Pine, contacted the few leaders in Pine and got support for his proposal. Several meetings were held to promote the Randall plan. Meetings in Pine, Payson and Gisela were arranged. In order to provide a perma-

nent body to foster the new highway, the group decided a chamber of commerce would be most beneﬁcial.” According to Murphy the chamber was originally called the Northern Gila County Chamber of Commerce before changing its name to the Payson Chamber of Commerce in 1945. He credits this group for ultimately getting the highway built that is known today as Highway 87, or the Beeline Highway. On January 8, 1952 he reports that the constitution of the Payson Chamber of Commerce was drawn and it was incorporated on April 17, 1953. Murphy’s story seems to check out. There was a clearly a Northern Gila County Chamber of Commerce in existence in 1939 — a May 25, 1939 Arizona Republic ad for the Payson area references this group. Advertisement mentions of a chamber of commerce in the area seem to disappear during the war

years, but a Dec. 23, 1946 Arizona Republic article references the Payson Chamber of Commerce. His story seems correct, and from 1938 forward, it probably is. But a mention in the June 18, 1920 Coconino Sun changes things a little bit. “Payson has organized a chamber of commerce.” Another article later that summer in the Coconino Sun also references the Payson Chamber of Commerce. What happened between 1920 and 1938 is unknown at present time. A Payson advertisement in the July 7, 1935 Arizona Republic makes no mention of a chamber, while listing businesses such as Boardman Bros., Log Cabin Inn and Payson Garage. This earlier mention doesn’t invalidate what Murphy wrote, but simply provides an opening for further research. It’s logical to say that today’s chamber of commerce was founded in 1938, but it is plausible that it could be even older than that.

Tickets are still being sold for the Strawberry Patchers Opportunity Quilt and will be available at the Aug. 11 Friends of the Strawberry Patchers Fourth Annual Quilt Auction. The event will be in the cultural hall of the Pine Community Center. Also taking place the weekend of Aug. 11-12 in Pine is Mountain Daze. Tickets for the quilt have been sold at numerous events, such as one earlier this year where Strawberry Patchers treasurer Maureen Pastika and president Elaine Putnam manned the sales table.
ries at numerous locations throughout Rim Country, selling tickets for the Aug. 11 benefit and raffle tickets for a 2012 Polaris UTV. The proceeds from these efforts will benefit the Rim Country Educational Foundation and will be used for pre-development costs for the new campus. For more information or to make a donation, visit Rim Country Change for Change on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/RimCountryChangeFor Change. Through a public-private partnership that includes CABR, the Town of Payson hopes to establish a new, fully accredited, high-tech university with a limited number of degree programs that would benefit local families by offering a lower cost option for obtaining four-year college degrees. It would also provide a much-needed economic boost to the town and surrounding communities by attracting an influx of college instructors and students from beyond our community that would require housing, food, clothing, fuel, personal services, and entertainment. Detailed information about the university project is available at www.universityinpayson.com. Progress to date includes obtaining land for the Phase I North Campus, which is bordered by Highway 260 on the south and Tyler Parkway on the east. A key next step is to obtain a 290-acre parcel of land for the planned Phase II South Campus that is located on the south side of Highway 260 and currently administered by the U.S. Forest Service. Through the Rim Country Change for Change initiative, CABR is helping to raise funds for the development costs of the new campuses.
A 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 4x4 utility vehicle (UTV) will be raffled as part of the Central Arizona Board of Realtors’ Rim Country Change for Change fund-raiser Saturday, Aug. 11 at the Oxbow Saloon, 607 W.

Tickets for the benefit and the raffle are available at the CABR office, the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Oxbow Saloon and the Butcher Hook Restaurant in Tonto Basin. Tickets for the fund-raiser bash are $25 per person. Raffle tickets for the UTV are $100 each, with only 250 tickets available for sale. The raffle for the Polaris Ranger UTV will be held within seven days of the sale of the last ticket. Donations are tax deductible and benefit the Rim Country Educational Foundation.

JILL JACKSON’S HOLLYWOOD | TONY RIZZO
Former New Kid has accomplished a lot HOLLYWOOD — Mark Wahlberg has left “Marky Mark” in the dust, and nobody remembers that he started as a “New Kids on the Block” dropout and a rap singer. He ﬁrst hit the big screen in l994 in “Renaissance Man” with Danny DeVito, followed by “The Basketball Diaries” with Leonardo DiCaprio. Ten years and 12 ﬁlms later, he executive-produced the hit HBO series “Entourage,” which ran for seven years. Then he produced and starred in “We Own the Night” (2007) with Robert Duvall, Eva Mendes and Joaquin Phoenix. In 2008, he exec-produced the HBO drama series “In Treatment” with Gabriel Byrne, and then “Boardwalk Empire,” which received 18 Emmy nominations in 2010, winning eight awards (it received 12 nods this year). Wahlberg also exec-produced the HBO series “How to Make It in America,” and was one of the producers and stars of “The Fighter,” which received seven Academy Award nods, winning two: Best Supporting Actress and Actor, for Melissa Leo and Christian Bale. He also produced and starred in “Contraband,” which cost $25 million to $40 million to make and earned $95 million. He only acted in “Ted,” which cost less than $65 million to produce, but his star power has driven it close to $250 million already. Wahlberg is one of the producers and stars of “Broken City,” with Oscar winners Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as Kyle Chandler, set for January release. He is currently an actor-only in the $20 million black-and-white ﬁlm “Pain & Gain”
with Dwayne Johnson, Ed Harris and Tony Shalhoub. For director Michael Bay of “The Transformer” franchise, this is his ﬁrst low-budget, non-epic IMAX/3D ﬁlm in some time. Who could imagine that the same Marky Mark who stood 50 feet high on a billboard in Times Square, in his underwear, could accomplish all this? *** Another boy-band alumnus making it big in movies is Justin Timberlake from ‘N Sync. Hollywood took notice of him in “The Social Network,” and now he’s starring in three upcoming ﬁlms. First is “Trouble with the Curve,” starring and produced by Clint Eastwood, with his partner Robert Lorenze (who is directing), along with Amy Adams, Matthew Lillard and John Goodman, set for Sept. 28 release. Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, John Goodman and F. Murray Abraham co-star with Timberlake in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” No release date yet. Timberlake currently is shooting “Runner, Runner” with Ben Afﬂeck and Gemma Atherton (“Quantum of Solace,” “Prince of Persia,” “The Clash of the Titans” remake and the upcoming “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” with Jeremy Renner). Afﬂeck plays a businessman caught up in offshore online gaming. So if you’re looking to break into the movies ... try joining a boy band!

STRANGE BUT TRUE
Housebroken armadillos? BY SAMANTHA WEAVER KING FEATURES
• Those who study such things say that armadillos can be housebroken. • The longest war in history lasted 335 years and resulted in exactly zero casualties. In 1651, the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly off Great Britain declared war upon each other, but nothing ever came of the conﬂict and it was soon forgotten. Finally, in 1986, the two combatants agreed to a peace treaty. • Do you suffer from cacodemonomania? If you believe that you are possessed by an evil spirit, you do. • The world’s smallest mammal can be found only in Thailand and Myanmar. Weighing about as much as a dime, Kitti’s hog-nosed bat is sometimes called the bumblebee bat due to its diminutive size. • You might be surprised to learn that an eagle can kill a young deer and ﬂy away with it. • The Beatles was not the ﬁrst band in which John Lennon played. Those previous groups obviously didn’t work out, though; in fact, at one point Lennon broke a washboard over a bandmate’s head during a dispute. After the Beatles’ success, though, Lennon apologized in style: He bought the poor guy a supermarket. • At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. At the top of Mount Everest, though, the lower air pressure reduces the boiling point to 156 degrees. • If you recycle one glass jar, you’ll save enough energy to power a TV for three hours.

NOW HERE’S A TIP | JOANN DERSON
TAME EXTRA BUBBLES
• If your washer oversuds because you accidentally added too much detergent, just add a half-cup of white vinegar to the wash water. It will dampen the extra bubbles. Then make sure to put the load through an additional rinse to eliminate soap residue in your clothes. • Lunchbox tip: Assemble your sandwich the night before (without veggies). Wrap in waxed paper and freeze. Add veggies and a condiment packet in a separate bag. Your sandwich will thaw by lunchtime and will stay cold! • “Plant banana skins in your garden, just below the surface. They rot quickly and provide nutrients for growing plants.” — A.R. in Ohio • “My girls get a little crazy with back-toschool clothes shopping — they want everything! Before we go, we pull out all the clothes they have and assess their needs. We keep a count of shirts, skirts, shorts and pants so we don’t overbuy and have too many. They also make outﬁts out of what they have, so we can see if anything needs to be bought for that purpose. And undergarments and socks are replenished ﬁrst, so they get included in the budget!” — S.S. in South Carolina • “Always keep two needles threaded, one with black and one with white. When you have a rip, a button comes off or a hem comes out of your clothes, and you are in a hurry, you can use one of these for a quick repair.” — J.R. in Virginia • “This is a great tip for the new school year. It’s hard to keep track of names of
classmates anyway, but trying to remember who’s who from last year or the year before can be impossible. When class pictures come out, I make a photocopy and write the names of the children on the copy, right next to the child in the photo. I keep the photocopy handy throughout the school year and then ﬁle it away later with the actual photo. Our family has been doing this for almost 10 years, and it makes for great recall when looking back.” — Y.O. in Utah • When patching cracks in plaster walls, if the crack is large or it’s a small hole, stuff it with wadded-up newspaper or steel wool in order to ﬁll the gap. Apply the plaster over the top. • Recipe substitution: For each cup of brown sugar needed, use 1 cup of white sugar and 2 tablespoons of molasses. • Add these to the list of items to eliminate the odor of cooking cabbage: a heel of bread, a whole walnut or a pinch of baking soda. • To travel with pleated skirts, use this packing trick: Turn the skirt inside out and straighten all the pleats. Then tape the bottom so that all the pleats are held together. Next, feed the skirt into a leg of pantyhose with the foot cut off. You’ll end up with a nice tube, which you can tuck into the sides of your luggage. Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As eager as you are to take on that new challenge, it would be best to temper that spurt of “Ram”-bunctious energy until you have more facts to back up your decision to move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by week’s end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether it’s on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might think you’re not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’ve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But now’s a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by week’s end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace you’ve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues you’re suddenly facing, and you’ll be ahead of the game. Don’t be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and you’ll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH
How to prevent heat injuries BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: This will be my first year as an assistant football coach at the highschool level. The head coach has given me the task of preparing for heat-related injuries. It stays hot here way into October. I’d appreciate any tips you can give me. — G.O. ANSWER: The best prevention for heat injuries is calling off practice on hot, humid days. What exactly is a hot, humid day? If your school has a wet-bulb globe thermometer, on days when it registers 82 or higher, either call off practice or limit the work done. This reading incorporates heat and humidity. It takes two weeks for the body to acclimatize to heat. In the first few days, drills should not be demanding. Once acclimatized, the body sweats earlier and the sodium content of sweat lessens. Encourage players to stay hydrated. They should drink 16 to 20 ounces of water or a sports drink two hours before and again half an hour before practice. Players should continue to drink 8 ounces every 20 minutes. Sports drinks provide sodium. Heat cramps are the first sign of trouble. Muscles of the arms, legs or abdomen cramp. Cramping players should be taken out of practice, sit in a cool, shaded place and drink sodium-containing fluids. Heat fainting is a more serious sign of heat trouble. Such a player should be taken to an airconditioned room, hydrated and carefully watched. This player ought not to practice the following day. Heat exhaustion is the next and is a quite serious sign of heat injury. The player sweats heavily, might be nauseated, breathes rapidly and has a fast pulse and low blood pressure. He’s apt to be confused. The player is dehydrated and sodiumdepleted. He must be quickly taken to an air-conditioned room, have his clothes removed and his legs elevated. Cold fluids containing sodium are essential. If he’s not responding to this treatment shortly, he ought to be taken to a hospital emergency department. Heatstroke is the most serious heat injury. All the signs mentioned above are present, but the skin can be dry. The player is groggy or unresponsive. He needs to be taken to an emergency room by ambulance. Clothes are removed. During transport, ice-water-soaked towels are placed under his arms, in his groin and around his neck. Immersion in an ice-water bath will be accomplished at the hospital. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What can you tell me about hypothyroidism? Does taking iodine help? I hear that taking thyroid hormone is a lifetime commitment. — C.N. ANSWER: Hypothyroidism is a thyroid gland that’s putting out way too little thyroid hormone. All body processes slow. People become weak and are exhausted. They’re cold when others are pleasantly warm. They gain weight without overeating. Their skin dries. The face becomes puffy. The heart beats slowly. Worldwide, iodine deficiency is the main cause of a sluggish thyroid gland. It is not in North America. Here, the main cause is an attack on the gland by the immune system. The appropriate treatment is supplying the hormone in pill form. It usually is a lifelong treatment, but it’s not an onerous one. It’s taking only one pill a day.
