Exhibition Mario Belvedere’s “The Maasai Series” of works are on exhibit through Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Payson Healing Arts Center, 616 N. Beeline Hwy. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Belvedere is a native of Sicily and a resident of Rim Country since 2005. He is both a painter and a sculptor and a former instructor at Gila Community College in Payson.


The Payson Public Library’s Cookin’ for Health program with Peggy Martin continues with two programs in September. September 7 the topic is “what’s fishy about fish” and will include information on how to make intelligent choices of fish at a supermarket - what kind it is, what it eats, where it was caught, and whether it was farmed or wild. For those concerned with environmental issues, other choices involve how the fish was caught and raised and whether its stocks are sustainable. To accompany the grilled fresh tuna, provided by Chef Gary Bedsworth, participants will prepare a Citrusy Soy Sauce glaze that brings out a delightful blend and balance of flavors between the two. Next Hotel Russel Ersine Watercress Salad will be prepared. This recipe was Alabama Chef James Boyce’s homage to one served at a historic Huntsville hotel. It’s an unusually zesty vinaigrette which partners well with spicy watercress. The salad is topped with toasted quinoa, a polite mild delicate grain that enhances and provides a yin/yang experience, while providing rich protein and fiber galore. Quinoa is often referred to as the “Supergrain of the Future”. Kiwi Crunchy Romaine salad also partners well with grilled tuna and provides high fiber content, which means it is an excellent enhancer for a clean digestive tract. The bright green kiwi fruit slices with little black seeds, boasts “more vitamin C than a small orange”, along with potassium, fiber, and lusty tropical colorful appeal. The New Zealand crop is available now through next month. September 21 participants will learn about healthy choices for breakfast and brunch in “The Natural Nine” which introduces a variety of whole grains and is the first of four parts Martin plans to present. The recipes will include quick breads; 9-grain muffins; granola; and easy, fresh fruit cobblers. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Stop by the circulation desk at the Payson Public Library to register.

about the same. Again, your travel agent can assist you with suggestions and bookings. These three cruise lines are ranked as premium with perhaps Celebrity being a tad better. Not long ago I was thinking about what travel was like in earlier times. I recalled my flight from Rome to New York on PanAm’s President Special flown on Boeing 377’s, which were marketed as Boeing Stratocruisers. They were 4-engine prop planes and the President Special operated out of Rome only once per week. It sat and slept only 44 very first class passengers. The cabin consisted of two by two first class plush seats. There was so much leg room that a cabin attendant could serve the window seat passenger from directly in front of them, There was no leaning over from the aisle to serve this seat drinks and meals. There were also berths available arranged much like the Pullmans on older trains. The lower seats would make into a full twin size bed and the upper berth was let down from the ceiling. A cloth curtain covered both upper and lower just as the old Pullman berths had. There was a very large belt that stretched over the tummy as you lie in bed that was loosely fastened. A small ladder was hooked on to the upper birth as needed so the passenger in the upper could enter and depart. You only had to ring for the ladder. On a lower deck was a 12-passenger bar/lounge, which also featured an attendant to serve you drinks and munchies.

I also enjoyed a berth a couple times on the same type of aircraft flying between San Francisco and Honolulu. Then, it took some 9 to 10 hours between the two points. I was a teenager then and traveled with my parents. Later, airlines began coach class service, which was much different. I also remember flying long distances on the earlier 747’s on PanAm World Airways. The entire upper deck was devoted to being a bar/lounge for first class passengers. At some meal services the lounge was re-configured to seat passengers for an all the trimmings menu and drinks. There was often an on-board chef for first class passengers using the planes for over water flights to Europe, South America and the Orient. This was really first class. When the 707 and DC-8 jets came into service fine food was served from a cart moving down the aisle to serve passengers multi-course meals. This service is still available in first and business class today on most carriers. Some DC-10s and L-10ll three engine aircraft offered bar/lounges for both classes of service in the earlier days. These same areas finally became filled with cramped coach seats. Flying today is much different than it once was. Today, you feel like cattle in coach class and not too much better in business class. It used to be fun before security lines and all the regulations. I enjoy thinking back on better flight travel days.

Incidentally, Bhutan also is the only nation in the world in which the well-being of the citizens is so important that the government measures the country’s Gross National Happiness. • If you’re like 98 percent of Americans, you think you’re a better driver than everyone else on the road. • The next time you make a family trip to Yellowstone National Park, keep in mind that as you walk through the seemingly peaceful scenery and view the iconic geysers, you’re actually walking on top of a supervolcano.

The couple, of course, has to work together to clean up the mess.

• Did you ever wonder why pirates often had pierced ears? It seems that the belief at the time was that wearing an earring improved eyesight. • You might be surprised to learn that there is a world record for the tallest recorded hairdo. Even more surprising is the fact that the recordholder’s beehive measured a whopping 6 feet, 6 inches tall. • Food trucks are rapidly gaining popularity all over the country, both at fairs and at standalone food-truck bazaars. You might be surprised to learn that the origin of the food truck goes all the way back to 1872. At that time, in Providence, R.I., all the restaurants closed at 8 every night, leaving factory workers who got off late without a place to eat. At the time, a man named Walter Scott (obviously not Sir Walter Scott) was working as a pushcart peddler, selling odds and ends out of a glorified wheelbarrow. Like a true American entrepreneur, Scott saw a need and moved to fill it. He put a small stove in a horse-drawn wagon and began roaming the streets late at night, selling sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs and coffee. His success spurred imitators, and soon the city was teeming with the “after-hours lunchwagons.” © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

This little garden spot in a narrow canyon, rocky and steep, seems almost too real to be true when seen from the canyon wall on the way down. The bridge is not visible, however. The five acres of corn seen to the south are growing on top of the natural bridge.” The bridge also had a very special fruit tree; one which made national news in 1931. According to a United Press article that appeared across the country, including in the April 17, 1931 Berkeley Daily Gazette, it was an apricot tree that had been planted 52 years earlier (1879). Charles E. Resser of the National Museum in Washington is quoted as follows in the article. “Its trunk is now more than three feet in diameter, with a spread of branches exceeding 100 feet and this summer the tree

bore approximately 100 bushels of fruit.” Throughout the region were orchards of apple trees. Another one of note was where the Geronimo Estates subdivision is now. William Craig and Paul Vogel would patent the land surround Webber Creek. The May 3, 1900 Arizona Silver Belt references Vogel’s place. “Paul Vogel came in Tuesday last after supplies. Mr. Vogel has the finest fruit farm in this section of Arizona. It is located on Webber creek and contains some 1800 trees.” August Pieper also grew fruit trees in Payson, as this April 2, 1891 Arizona Republican article mentions. “He has the finest ranch in the Payson country and is turning his attention to fruit culture, having set out upwards of 1500 trees this season, which makes his orchard the largest in Gila county.” Harvesting fruit was and still is a common part of fall life in this region with orchards of various size dotting the region.

He would do something miraculous, and then declare Himself as the holy Messiah by declaring the truth through an “I Am” statement. Jesus knew that even though He gave them physical food to help curb their natural hunger, He knew that spiritual food was the utmost need that will last for eternity. However, they where only concerned with the natural food needs and not their spiritual school needs. Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes [in me] has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” [1]

true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. “As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” John 6:53-58 ARE YOU HUNGRY?

Self Evaluation What are you hungry for? Physically food, spiritual food, both? Will you ask God for a deeper hunger for Him above and beyond all else? Will you seek to eat his blood and flesh by practically reading the Bible daily? Prayer: Dear God give me spiritual food, bread from heaven, namely your blood and flesh that I might feed upon You and have ever lasting life for eternity. © Copyright 2013 Simone Lake.

After Jesus declared that He is the great “I AM” He challenges those who heard Him to prove it through accountability by a change of behavior. “So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is

Harold Rush, at right, superintendent of the photography department at the 2013 Northern Gila County Fair, points out the winning qualities of one of the many entries submitted at last year’s fair. The photography division is one of the most popular among the many exhibitions at the fair - both among entrants and fairgoers.

59 years of fun Northern Gila County Fair Friday-Sunday Sept. 6th-8th Celebrating its 59th anniversary the Northern Gila County Fair is this weekend at the Payson Event Center. Exhibits open at 9 a.m., Friday, Sept. 6 and can be enjoyed until 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 8. Demonstrations will be presented every hour. Demonstrations will be held on the north side of the event center at the west end of the exhibits tents. There will be a variety of livestock shows and more offered throughout the course of the fair. Entertainment includes a carnival and the always-popular Demolition Derby, which will be held Saturday night, Sept. 7 instead of Sunday afternoon as in the

past. This year there is an admission of $1 per person to the fair and $12 per person for the Demolition Derby. FRIDAY EVENTS — PAYSON EVENT CENTER ARENA

Young, above, and old, below left, alike, are fascinated by the astounding variety of entries and talent on display at the Northern Gila County Fair. Come see for yourself when the 59th Annual Northern Gila County Fair takes place at the Payson Event Center from Friday, Sept. 6 through Sunday, Sept. 8.

Love is strange - or so goes the song lyric. But there is no doubt it’s true when you see youngsters, like Katelynn Wilbanks, at right, so dedicated to their livestock projects for 4H and FFA that they sometimes bed down with their entries over the course of the Northern Gila County Fair.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor new romances for unpaired Ewes and Rams. Already-paired Arian twosomes experience renewed harmony in their relationships. Money matters also take a bright turn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Use that strong Bovine determination to help you keep the faith with your convictions while you move through a period of uncertainty. Things begin to ease by the week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to your intuition. It could be alerting you to be more careful about accepting a “statement of fact” simply on trust. Don’t be shy about asking for more proof. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Concern for the well-being of someone in need is admirable. But don’t forget to take care of yourself as well. Ask a family member, close friend or colleague to help you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s OK to focus on the demands of your career. But try to avoid misunderstandings by also reaching out to family and friends. Your sharp intuitive sense kicks in by midweek. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Keep a rein on that green-eyed monster. Jealousy is counterproductive. Instead of resenting a colleague’s good points, concentrate on developing your own abilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Spending time on a creative project during this high-energy week can pay off both in emotional satisfaction and in impressing someone who is glad to see this side of you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Now is a good time to start planning that trip you’ve put off because of the demands on your time. Be sure to choose a destination that is new and exciting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That upbeat mood in the first part of the week makes you eager to take on new ventures. A more serious note sets in later to help you assess an upcoming decision. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A high energy level gives the Goat the get-up-and-go to finish outstanding tasks before deadline, leaving time for well-earned fun and games with friends and family. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Dealing with disappointment is never easy. But the wise Aquarian will use it as a vital lesson and be the better for it. A close friend has something important to say. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Best bet is not to get involved in an argument between colleagues until you know more about who started it and why. And even then, appearances could be deceiving. Be alert. BORN THIS WEEK: You have creative gifts that inspire those who get to see this sometimes-hidden side of you. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

All heartburn meds have side effects BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. 2013 NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Is it true that those of us who have to take Prilosec every day are in danger of getting a bone fracture? Should we consider stopping it? — Anon. ANSWER: We need to give readers a clue to what we’re talking about. The subject is GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, something most call “heartburn.” It’s the eruption of stomach acid and digestive juices into the esophagus, a place not built to withstand those powerful fluids. Proton-pump inhibitors are the most effective suppressants of acid production. There are eight: Prilosec (omeprazole), Nexium (esomeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), Protonix (pantoprazole) and Aciphex (rabeprazole). These medicines have made life livable for people who don’t respond to other strategies or medicines for heartburn control. All effective medicines have side effects. A side effect of proton-pump inhibitors is weakening of the hip bone with possible fracture of it. It’s not a common occurrence. When it happens, it happens to those who have taken high doses of these medicines for five to seven years. As a preventive step, take a protonpump inhibitor at the lowest dose that controls symptoms and for the shortest time possible. You can resume taking it if and when heartburn returns. You also can try acid suppressants that don’t have this side effect: Tums, Rolaids and Maalox. Don’t eat foods that cause you to have heartburn. Frequent offenders are excessive amounts of caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint, fatty foods, citrus fruits and tomatoes. Or try a different family of acid suppressants. Zantac (ranitidine), Pepcid (famotidine) and Tagamet (cimetidine) are examples. I wouldn’t use the unapproved treatment mentioned in the letter you sent. It appears that its distributor is playing on exaggerated fear. The booklet on heartburn explains this illness and its treatment in detail. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 501W, 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 90-year-old senior in good health. I belong to an HMO. During my annual physical, I told the doctor I had some hemorrhoids. He insisted I get a colonoscopy. My family is ready to kill him for recommending this for someone 90 years old. I have refused the colonoscopy and received a letter stating that I would be responsible for any bills if I ever have a problem. Should I have this procedure? — H.L. ANSWER: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, a committee of recognized authorities, says people can stop having colonoscopies at age 75 if previous colonoscopies have been normal. It also says that people older than 85 should not be routinely advised to have a colonoscopy, because the danger of colon perforation during the exam is greater than their risk of dying from cancer. However, if older people have a life expectancy of 10 years and want to be screened, their wishes should be honored. Ask your doctor about other ways of detecting colon cancer. The fecal immunochemical test for blood is an example. Your stance is not unreasonable.
