AUGUST 21, 2013 • RIM REVIEW | 3


VISITING THE BIG TREES Ever since I can remember I have had a special place in my heart for the very big trees. We have many here where we reside, but the really large trees are located in northern California. What we are talking about is standing under a 30-story canopy of 3,000-year-old California Coast Redwoods. We are talking about visiting the only place in the world with a truly unique and unparalleled experience so close to Arizona. To get there, you can drive yourself to San Jose or fly from Phoenix and rent a car at the San Jose Airport. Then, to visit the Big Trees get on KEN BROOKS Interstate 880 south. This soon becomes California 17 and you are on your way. It’s just a 45-minute drive from the airport exit to the Big Trees. The highway quickly enters the Santa Cruz Mountains and crosses the San Andreas Fault. The scenery is beautiful, but this is only the beginning of what you are about to see. Once you are over the mountains look for the Mt. Hermon Exit (Exit 3). From here, drive northwest 3.5 miles to Felton. Mt. Hermon Road ends at Graham Hill Road. Turn left at Graham Road and drive a half-mile to Roaring Camp (on the right). Turn in; pay the man $8 for all day parking and put the car away for awhile. Now the magic begins. Many of you who read my column know that I am a “train nut”. There are not only big trees here, but trains too. You will likely hear the steam whistle the minute you step out of the car. There’s not just one train here, there are two and you can take time to ride them both. Now you may think you are not a train enthusiast, but these trains are fun and they offer a very particular way to visit the big trees. Why? Rail travel here gives you a better and easier way to see the trees than by walking the area’s trails, which are steep and difficult. You parked at Roaring Camp, which is a magic place. It was opened in the early 1960s with the goal of preserving a piece of the 1880s – and that it has done. There is a wonderful little town with a general store and plenty of food so you can plan to eat lunch here or place it in bags to take on the train. Next, you need to pick your trains and buy thickets. You do that across the street at the 1880s rail depot. We rode the Mountain Steam Train first and then the Santa Cruz Beach train. I suggest you go to roaring to check things out before you go. A little planning sometimes helps. Each of these train rides is wonderful. The Mountain Steam Train is a sheer pleasure. The engine once hauled logging trains on the narrow gauge track and offers all the sounds and smells of the forest. The railroad owns Shay, Heisler and Climax engines. These engines are now more than 100 years old and are still going strong. They haul trains several times a day up the steep-

The first stop on the way to see the Big Trees of California is the Roaring Camp and its old-fashioned depot from where two special touring trains depart to take visitors to see towering trees that stood when Christ walked the earth and the town of Santa Cruz.

est rail grade in Western America (that’s 8 percent) without missing a beat or puff. The ride begins plain enough; you steam around the peaceful meadow that surrounds the town and the depot. Just when you begin to think this is all very nice, but a bit silly; the train makes a left turn past the original mill and slips under the redwoods. Wow! Get the camera ready. The ride up the hill is great fun. At one point you go through a real switchback, where the train actually reverses direction, this is an old lumber rail trick to aid in getting up a steep hill at 5 MPH. At the top there is a wide circle and the train stops for a leisurely 30 minutes to commune with the mountaintop. Here, we sat at one of the tables and enjoyed the lunch we brought with us. Some passengers took off on the several hiking trails. Following lunch, we re-boarded the train and off we went back down the mountain. You pass through the same territory but the scene seems different because you are seeing it from the “going down” perspective. The engine is still working to keep the train going down rails at a steady pace, not being a runaway. At the bottom is the depot. Now it was time to board the Beach Train. This is a diesel-powered train running on standard gauge track on a more level route that runs from Roaring Camp right down to the famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

On this train you have the choice of sitting in open or enclosed cars. If the weather is good, take the open cars for the best view down the cliff to the San Lorenzo River. After a pleasant ride, the train emerges into “down town” Santa Cruz and stops right next to the famous boardwalk and beach. You have a choice of getting off and taking a later train back or getting back on board after an hour. You could spend this hour at the beach if you want to enjoy the sand and fresh sea sir. The ride back to roaring camp and our car was also very pleasant. We lucked out with the weather. Arriving back at the station, we discovered that the best was still to come! Right next door is Henry Cowell State Park. This is a gem! It is right out of the forest scenes of the old Star Wars Trilogy. These trees were here when Christ walked the earth. Many of the larger trees are more than 3,000 years old. The real shock was that the root systems of several trees are more than 9,000 years old. There is an information center and little guide sheets that take you to several of the more spectacular trees in the park and tells about their significance. About the size of a condo apartment is the Freemont tree, large enough to live in if needed. The space inside this hollow tree is huge. During the summer there are often

evening activities. At night you can be treated to a live jazz concert drifting through the trees. We stayed the night in a nearby rustic Hilton. The next morning you may wish to breeze into the San Francisco Bay area which is only 40 miles away or slip into nearby Monterey or Carmel by taking California Highway 1 south. If you have time, spend it in the Monterey and Carmel area to enjoy the many sights available. If you decide to head south, get on Highway 101 and head south for a visit to Hearst Castle, not far from San Louis Obispo. Take at least two tours here. You’ll be amazed at the castle and the life of William Randolph Hearst, who once owned several newspapers around the country. He was un-officially “married” to a famous film actress and they threw wild parties for the film establishment in Hollywood. Special trains were often put together in Los Angeles to haul party guests up the Southern Pacific tracks for 200 miles to the castle for long weekends by the sea. Touring the castle is well worth your visit. You will be amazed at the size of the swimming pools, the guest rooms and area. The Hearst family gave the 29 acres with castle and zoo to the State of California when William Randolph died. The castle is preserved by funds from tour tickets purchased by tourists. Have fun seeing the good old USA.

An article in

The Arizona Republic on Aug. 16, 1970, with regards to Tonto Creek, stated “the upper end is crowded with campers, picnickers – plus hatchery trout.” With regards to Christopher Creek the same article says that it “generally is crowded with anglers where the stream and campground flanks paved Route 260. Yet, Al Ellis and others report great wilderness-type fishing where the stream boxes up.” Advertisements in The Arizona Republic the Wednesday prior to Labor Day weekend 1970 provide a little bit of insight into the region. There was an advertisement for Gordon Canyon Ranch (on today’s Colcord Mountain Road), which was run by the Treat family. Kohl’s Ranch had an advertisement, and then there was the Christopher Creek Lodge-Motel touting that you could “fish from your porch”. Earlier that summer a couple of other noteworthy Christopher Creek area advertisements had appeared. There was a May 10 advertisement for the Christopher Creek Store & Bar run by Blanche and Heber White. It said to “watch for opening of our new steak house.” That place eventually turned into the


Shingles rash gone, pain lingers on DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Two months ago, I broke out in a shingles rash. I had some pain, but not a whole lot. After the rash left, the pain increased, and it’s still there to this day. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might make. I need some relief from this pain. I didn’t think shingles lasted this long. Would the shingles vaccine help? — R.M. ANSWER: Shingles doesn’t last that long. What you have now is postherpetic neuralgia, nerve damage caused by the shingles virus. That’s the source of your pain. The entire story is complicated. When you were a kid, you had chickenpox. Even if you don’t remember, even if there’s no record of it, the chickenpox virus infected your body. It remains in a deep sleep inside nerve cells until later in life, when something wakens it and the virus makes its way down the nerve to the skin. There it produces the typical rash and pain of shingles. The rash is gone in about two weeks. Between 10 percent and 15 percent of those who have shingles will face one of its dreadful complications: postherpetic neuralgia, pain that lingers long after the rash is gone. Pain relievers and time are the only things that treat this shingles aftermath. Sometimes antidepressants given in low doses can ease the pain. Amitriptyline is an example of such a drug. Seizure-control medicines are another group of drugs that can control postherpetic neuralgia. Lyrica and Neurontin are two such drugs.

Capsaicin cream, available without a prescription, applied to the area of pain, might soothe it. Qutenza is a patch impregnated with a high concentration of capsaicin. It’s the latest treatment of the aftermath pain of shingles. A health care professional has to apply the patch to the skin. It’s left in place for an hour and then removed. It is expensive; make sure your insurance covers it. Often, doctors have to resort to a combination of treatments to control postherpetic neuralgia. The shingles vaccine won’t help you now. If given before an outbreak, it prevents shingles in 50 percent of recipients and has a 66 percent record of heading off postherpetic neuralgia. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I suffer from premature auricular contractions. I have seen a couple of doctors about it, but none seems to consider them worth discussing. I was told I didn’t need to do anything. I wasn’t given any medicines. Does this deserve more attention? — L.C. ANSWER: Premature auricular contractions are also called premature atrial contractions. The atria are the upper two heart chambers. These are extra beats sandwiched between two normal beats. If they aren’t numerous and if they are not causing any symptoms, they can be safely ignored. They are not an indication of serious heart problems, and they don’t indicate future troubles. © 2013 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Landmark. There was also an advertisement in that same issue for the Creekside Trailer Park run by Olive Ashby. Down the road from Christopher Creek was Camp Tontozona, where Frank Kush’s Sun Devils were preparing for their season. The Devils had been coming to Tontozona since 1960 and in 1970 the Sun Devils arrived at Tontozona on August 30 and were slated to return to Tempe on Tuesday September 8. It was a typical Tontozona year for Kush’s Devils, filled with grueling, threea-day practices. An article in The Arizona Republic on Aug. 31, 1970 provided a snapshot of how the 1970 camp was going to be. “‘We expect to have a tough camp,’ said Kush, who’s never been known to run an easy one. ‘We have pretty much a veteran ballclub, and my patience is just liable to be a little bit shorter with

this bunch.’” That is what the region was like as the remnants of Tropical Storm Norma hit Arizona. The results would be devastating with roads and bridges washed out and many lives lost. The scenic waterways of the region with their lush vegetation and fishing holes were also impacted. There are just a handful of really historic weather events to have occurred in Rim Country and this was probably the biggest. MORE TO HEAR

On Monday, Sept. 2 at 10:30 a.m. at the Landmark in Christopher Creek many stories will be told from a variety of people who experienced the flood in different capacities. It’ll be a great opportunity to step back in time. For more information, including if you have a story to tell yourself, you can contact Don Farmer at (480) 200-8687.

Linda Kreimeyer (foreground) and Stephanie Jenkins led the Payson Community Garden food preservation program on freezing and canning held Aug. 14 and Aug. 20 at the First Church of the Nazarene. Freezing is probably the easiest method of preserving food and new equipment has made steam canning easier. Patty Cotney (below) discusses drying food, which is probably the oldest form of preservation. She says it is fun and easy and especially beneficial for couples and singles.

PRESERVATION PRESENTATION Harvest your garden’s bounty now, enjoy later Rim Country gardens are going great guns these days, so most gardeners are harvesting hand over fist. To help make the harvest last longer, organizers of the Payson Community Garden presented two programs on preserving foods. The first was Wednesday, Aug. 14 and a second was held Tuesday, Aug. 20 at the Church of the Nazarene on Tyler Parkway. Led by members of the LDS Relief Society Ladies, the program featured information on freezing, canning, dehydrating and pressure canning. Linda Kreimeyer discussed freezing. It is a quick way to preserve food at its peak condition and probably the easiest method. Freshly picked vegetables, properly frozen can last up to a year.

“Freezing is great way to preserve the natural flavor of foods,” Kreimeyer said. The equipment needed isn’t anything special: a vegetable slicer/mandolin or sharp knife, a pan for boiling water with a colander insert and tight-fitting lid and heavy-duty plastic bags or containers in which to freeze the food. Kreimeyer had Ziploc bags and opaque plastic containers on display. Members of the class have used the seal-and-freeze machines, which help extract the air from their packages of food. The most critical step in making sure vegetables keep their freshness when frozen is to blanch them. Blanching is scalding vegetables in boiling water for a short time and then quickly cool (using an ice bath is recommended) before placing in containers. The blanching process stops the enzyme action that can cause loss of flavor, color and texture. Each vegetable has its own blanching time; most require less than 5 minutes. The exceptions: Globe artichoke hearts (7); corn on the cob – small ears, (7), medium ears, (9), and large ears (11); and

especially large onions, which must be blanched until the center is heated (up to 7 minutes). A few vegetables must be actually cooked instead of blanched before freezing: beets, winter squash and sweet potatoes. Before beginning the process to preserve your produce with blanching and freezing, make sure you wash it well. Kreimeyer recommended adding a halfcup of vinegar to a sink filled with water and let them soak for about five minutes. METHOD FOR BLANCHING AND FREEZING

• Bring water in pan to a rolling boil • Slice vegetables about 3/8-inch thick (green beans don’t have to be sliced) • Place 2 to 3 cups of sliced vegetables in colander • Place colander with vegetables into boiling water • Place lid on pan and keep vegetables immersed with a rolling boil for 2 to 3 minutes (as recommended) • Remove colander and vegetables (open the lid away from you to avoid steam) CONTINUE ON PAGE 7

AUGUST 21, 2013 • RIM REVIEW | 7

Preservation keeps garden giving FROM PAGE 6

• Cool vegetables rapidly by immersing into cold water, add ice to keep water temperature low and change cold water frequently (cooling the vegetables takes about the same time that is used to blanch them) • With vegetables still in the colander, allow them to drain for a few minutes • Place in freezer bags or heavy plastic containers with tight fitting lids. For additional guidance go online to – this is the National Center for Home Food Preservation at the University of Georgia. Information can also be obtained from the local office of the University of Arizona Extension Service at (928) 474-4160, leave a message and someone will get back to you. OTHER TIPS

• If it takes more than 45 seconds for the water to return to a rolling boil after you have put the vegetables in, you have too many vegetables in the pan • Leafy greens, such as kale and collards, don’t need to be blanched, just wash, pat dry and freeze WATER/STEAM CANNING

Preserving food through canning in a water bath can be a tedious process. The big drawback is the time it takes for the water to get back up to the proper, high temperature to seal the canning jars once they have been submerged. It takes anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes for the water to get hot enough and, so, if you are trying to do large batches you can expect to spend all day working in hot, humid conditions. Stephanie Jenkins, who presented the program on traditional canning, recommends using a steam canner. It cuts preheating time by up to 50 percent. “Steam canning has been around for the last 25 years. It is so much easier and faster than the old water bath your grandma uses. No more waiting for water to boil and no more waste of water. Steam canning uses only three pints of water compared to the two the three gallons used in a water bath.” With steam canning you can preserve all fruits, jellies, jams, pickles, tomatoes, salsas and all recipes using tomatoes. However, it cannot be used for canning vegetables and meats, pressure canning is the method recommended for these foods. The unit she had on display costs $50. It has a shallow bottom; an insert on which to place the jars and lift them out; a tall, tightfitting lid with a gauge on top indicating when the water is hot enough to seal cans at the altitude in Rim Country. Jenkins explained that the first step in canning is to prepare your jars. Used jars and screw tops can be used, but the sealing top, with its rubber ring, must always be new. Check the jars to make there are no chips or cracks and the screw tops have no dents. Wash the jars and screw tops and heat the sealing lids as you prepare to use them. Put the food in the jar and fill with boiling water to about a half-an-inch of the top and add a teaspoon of special canning salt. Use a non-metal blade and run it around between the food and the inside of the jar to get

rid of the air bubbles. “This is one of the most important things to do. If your canning has air bubbles in it the quality of the food will be destroyed,” Jenkins said. Once the air bubbles have been cleared, use a lid lifter and take the sealing lids out of the hot water and place them on the canning jars and screw the tops on and place in the steamer. Put the lid on the steamer and when the gauge pointer reaches the “right elevation” marker (and steam starts coming out of the unit’s vent holes) start timing. “One of the best sounds in the world is that ‘ping’ you hear when your jars have sealed,” Jenkins said. When the canning process is complete, use a jar lifter, which comes with canning kits, take the jars out and set them aside to cool. DRYING TO PRESERVE FOOD

Food preservation by drying is one of the oldest methods of keeping food for extended periods of time. The program on drying (dehydration) was presented by Ruth Newton and Patty Cotney. There are two types of dehydrators on the market — a round unit that requires the user to rotate the drying trays to keep the temperature even; and a square unit that circulates the heated air automatically. Cotney cautioned that food dryers with only heating units and no blowers are not appropriate for dehydrating food. A round unit requires the initial rotation of trays about four or five hours into the process and then every hour thereafter. The round units start around $50, while the square units run from about $250 to $430, if you want a timer included. It is recommended the vegetables be washed, blanched and cut into uniform sizes prior to drying. The uniform size makes it easier to target the processing time. Newton recommended a food cutter by Progressive, which with a firm push of the bladed lid on the food in the container unit results in extremely uniform sliced, chunks and dices. “Food drying is fun and practical, especially for couples and singles,” Cotney said. Once the food is properly dried and stored in tightly sealed jars it can keep for years. To rehydrate it, cover the bottom of a saucepan with about a half-inch of the dried food and then cover it with about an inch of water and allow it to reabsorb the moisture the dehydration process removed. It isn’t necessary to have special equipment for drying food, some people have let the heat in attics turn grapes into raisins, or dried food under the back windows of their cars and on special framed screens covered with cheesecloth and sealed against bugs and rodents outside. To help keep dried food the longest, make sure the containers are stored in a dark, dry place. To keep canned food it is best to store it in a dark place where the temperature doesn’t exceed 70 degrees.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little “wool-gathering” for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful; too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted won’t be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesn’t seem all that certain about his or her intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get all the facts about that investment “opportunity” before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could prove to be costly. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. BORN THIS WEEK: You’re sought out for the wonderful advice you’re able to offer to others. And sometimes you even take it yourself. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Zucchini, everywhere Zucchini loves the Rim Country. People say it grows almost like a weed once you give it a little bit of attention. I guess I have attention deficit disorder in that regard — my one ambitious attempt to grow zucchini years ago out in Mesa del was a miserable failure. Fortunately souls with much more successful green thumbs also have generous hearts. So, usually just a hint that I’d like to try to make some zucchini bread results in a bounty of gifts. If your personal bounty of zucchini is getting on your nerves, take a tip from the wonderful ladies who presented the food preservation program for the Payson Community Garden the last couple of weeks. Wash that zucchini, cut off the ends and shred it, blanch it for 30 seconds, give it an ice water bath for another 30 seconds and package it up in heavy-duty plastic bags or containers for your freezer. Then come the cool days of autumn and the chill of winter mornings you will have it on hand to make a variety of delicious zucchini breads. These are some recipes the LDS Relief Society Ladies provided at their food preservation classes.

ZUCCHINI BREAD 2 cups grated zucchini 3 eggs 1 cup of oil 1 cup of brown sugar 1 cup white sugar 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup nuts, chopped 3 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon cloves 1 teaspoon nutmeg Combine sugars, eggs and oil. Add spices, baking soda and baking powder, flour and zucchini. Mix well. Add nuts. Fill loaf pan(s) to within no more than a half-inch from the top. Bake for an hour at 350 degrees.

BLUEBERRY ZUCCHINI BREAD Mix well in a large bowl 3 eggs 3 teaspoons vanilla 1 cup of oil 2-1/4 cups sugar Fold in 2 cups shredded zucchini 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 3 cups flour 1 teaspoons baking powder 1 tablespoon cinnamon Gently fold in 1 pint fresh blueberries Transfer to greased and floured loaf pans. Bake 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool 20 minutes in pans, then turn out onto wire racks to complete cooling.
