TRAVEL TALK | KEN BROOKS

HOLIDAY TRAVEL SUGGESTIONS Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s can be different for many of us. Some enjoy the pleasures of seeing old friends and relatives and even visiting some of them. Others would rather just stay home and drink-in the joys of the season in their own homes and towns and cities. Today, we will try and give you a few ideas if you want to consider leaving the homestead and branching out to other destinations. Las Vegas, Nev. is one of the most outstanding locations in December. More than three million people flock there to celebrate the holidays. There is even a Santa Claus road race, exclusively for Santa impersonators! There is ice-skating at Lake Las Vegas with its floating ice rink. Every year, Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall KEN BROOKS creates a winter wonderland spectacular. There will be over a half-million Christmas lights, a futuristic Christmas laser show and dreaming of a white Christmas. Christmas on the Strip is perhaps the most celebrated at the Bellagio Hotel as the fountains are already must-see and will dance only to Christmas music. And, the 49-ft. Christmas tree will feature a breathtaking display of decorations with a 5-ft. star on top. In fact, every resort and casino along the Strip will be trying to top one-another with Christmas decorations and events. You can take in the Winter Lights Festival at Springs Preserve, where an eight-acre garden will be lit. Don’t forget to take in one of the spectacular shows while you are there. If you and the extended family plan to get together with travel plans, you might do well to check out the Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim. You and the grandkids can race through the desert, soar over California, journey under the sea with Ariel or play with Woody and Buzz. Be sure to check out the World of Color nighttime spectacular and countdown to fun with the Pixar Play Parade. The family might enjoy dining at the Hollywood Golden Age eatery. For reservations at the Disneyland Hotel, phone 1-714-778-6600. And, don’t forget that Disney now has four beautiful cruise ships in the water operating in various parts of the world. These ships offer attractions for the young ones as well as adults. We took the grandkids on a Disney Cruise last October that took us to the Western Caribbean area. It was seven days in length and every day was filled with activities from morning to night. We all came together as a family during the dinner hour in the dining rooms. There are separate lounges and pool for adults. The cabins are rather large for a cruise ship and feature separated bathrooms. People can use the sink and toilet in one area while others are using the shower and bathtub in another room. If you can,

book a cabin with an outside balcony. Disney Cruises offer a one-week cruise Dec. 21 out of Galveston, Texas that docks in Cozumel, Mexico and Grand Cayman on the Disney Wonder. You can book a two- or three-day cruise on the Disney Dream out of Port Canaveral, Fla. for a Dec. 27 cruise to the Bahamas. Your travel agent can check availabilities and fares for you, or you can find them on the Web. While in Florida, why not rent a car and travel the short distance over to Orlando and visit some of the parks there. You’ll find Disney World with all of its parks as well as Universal Orlando and several other interesting parks. One of the most Christmassy places in America is Branson, Mo. Branson is nestled in the Ozark Mountains. It was once a dying lumber town but, is now the country’s live entertainment capital. It is home to scores of theaters and resort hotels that appeal to tourists year-round. Christmas time is very special here with its Branson Area Festival of Lights. The city expects about a million and a half holiday visitors this year to see the many offerings in each theatre, plus the Annual Adoration Parade which is a really big, old-fashioned Christmas parade with many of the theatre stars seen on floats. You can see real cowboys at the Branson Great American Wild West Show. There will be Christmas décor all over the city during the holiday season. Some of the music theatres will feature music of the season which can be enjoyed by all family members. The Branson Tourism Center can be reached at 1-800-785-1610. Branson Vacation Planning is available at: 1-866417-2726.

We have to mention New York City to visit this time of year. There you will see hundreds of stores in the Christmas mode along with features in Central Park, Radio City Music Hall, and the ice-skating at Rockefeller Center where you can rent skates. The shopping sales will be on, so take an extra suitcase to carry the new purchases home. In Santa Cruz, Calif. with a seaside on the Pacific will be decked out along the main avenue and boardwalk and there will be glittering displays for the holidays. Santa will visit this city by automobile. San Antonio, Texas will shine during the holiday season along the San Antonio River Walk, where 122,000 lights form a twinkling canopy over a riverside path. There will be a one-hour parade along the walk with over 185 schools and churches offering Christmas music and events. The National Christmas Center is the only Christmas museum in the entire world. It opened in 1998 and now overflows with hundreds of thousands of Christmas items, some more than 200 years old. This collection can be found in Paradise, Penn. Another place to shop is in Minneapolis, Minn. with the famous Mall of America. If you have relatives living in the area, perhaps they will put you up for a few nights while you and they do some serious shopping. I have seen many malls and so have you, but the Mall of America beats them all. Some of you will perhaps wish to stay in some of the very fine resorts and hotels in sunny Mexico. The beaches there are wonderful as are the resorts. All will be rather expensive over the holidays but, so is everywhere else. And, of course, we will suggest a Caribbean cruise out of Florida. The cruise in the end is your best travel value as we

often say but, check it out on the Web or with a travel agent. Some of you have wanted to visit or revisit the Hawaiian Islands and perhaps the holidays may be the best time for you to do Hawaii. The Four main islands offer so much to see and do. My favorites are Maui and Kauai. Where you stay is also important. Don’t select some poor-rated property thinking you won’t stay long in and around your hotel. I have found personally that the better the resort or hotel, the better we enjoy our trip. Hawaii offers balmy weather and southing breezes. It’s a little pricey this time of year, but everything is. If this is to be your destination, book your air and hotel as soon as possible. Seats and rooms fill fast this time of year. Remember, Phoenix and Tucson offer fine resorts and this is not so far to travel. A few fly over to London and Paris to enjoy the holidays. Both cities offer much to do and see. Be sure to bring warm clothing and a rain coat and umbrella. Also, take an extra suitcase to fill with shopping items. Remember, British Airways has several non-stop flights each week from Phoenix to London round-trip. A few people are discovering interesting destinations in Central America. Again, a travel agent can assist you with these areas or investigate on the Web. Many of the people in Costa Rica speak some English, which is always a help in getting around. We are planning a two-week cruise the first part of December, but will return home a couple days before Christmas where we plan to spend time with our good friends and relatives. Good luck in planning your holidays.

Cave Creek council race decided by deck of cards • It was noted wit Oscar Wilde who made the following sage observation: “Every saint has a past and every sinner a future.” • It seems that having blond hair was popular in ancient Rome, too. Those not naturally blessed with golden hair, though, had to go through a bit of an ordeal to change their natural color. The treatment of choice was pigeon droppings. Messy, perhaps, but effective. • Those who study such things say that dung beetles use the Milky Way as a navigational aid. • In June 2009, the town of Cave Creek, Ariz., was faced with an electoral tie in the race for a city council seat: Each candidate received exactly 660 votes. According to the state constitution, such ties can be broken by a game of chance. After some discussion, the candidates agreed that they would each pull a card at random out of a deck, and the one with the highest card would be declared the winner of the election.

Thomas McGuire drew the six of hearts, then waited while his opponent, Adam Trenk, took his turn. Trenk pulled the king of hearts, securing his city council victory. • You may be surprised to learn that clams can live to be 200 years old. • If you’re of a morbid inclination and have some time to kill in Chicago, head to that city’s Graceland Cemetery. Find the monument known as “Eternal Silence” — a tall figure in robes — and look into the statue’s eyes. It’s said that if you do that, you’ll have a vision of your own death. *** Thought for the Day: “I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.

We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas. Like so many, I find this tragic event fascinating. One thing that sticks with me is what Barry Goldwater wrote in his 1988 biography, “Goldwater.” At the time of Kennedy’s assassination, Goldwater was emerging as the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination in 1964. It was a nomination that he would go on to win before being crushed in the 1964 election by Lyndon B. Johnson. Would it have been such a blow-out though if Goldwater had faced Kennedy? He certainly didn’t think so. “Many people say today — and said then — that Kennedy would have defeated me. I’m not so sure. Time magazine and some of the polls clearly indicated he was slipping in national support. Kennedy himself admitted that. It was a major reason he went to Dallas in November

1963.” And what kind of campaign did Goldwater think it would have been against Kennedy? Well, much different than today’s campaigns. “Kennedy and I informally agreed — it seems a pipe dream in looking at some of today’s negative campaigning — that we would ride the same plane or train to several stops and debate face to face on the same platform.” When Kennedy was assassinated, it changed all of that. At least in hindsight, Goldwater indicated that it was a race he could not win. “I also was convinced that the American people were not ready for three presidents in little more than a year. They were not likely to support Johnson-Kennedy opponents. That would be the Democratic ticket in 1964, no matter who Johnson chose as Vice President.” For all of the ponderings on what would have happened had Kennedy not been assassinated, this is one that often gets overlooked. Personally, I doubt that Goldwater’s vision of his campaign against Kennedy would have played that way. But if it had, it probably would have been a legendary campaign.

CELEBRITY EXTRA | CINDY ELAVSKY

‘Party of Five’ alum starring in Lifetime movie next Q: A few months back, you ran an interview about Scott Wolf, and it got me to wondering what his fellow “Party of Five” alum Lacey Chabert is up to now. — Janet L., Minneapolis A: Lacey, who played the second youngest of the Salinger children on the hit ’90s nighttime drama, stars in the Lifetime Movie Network original movie “Non-Stop,” which premieres Friday, Nov. 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Lacey plays an executive assistant on a nighttime flight to Zurich who strikes up a romantic encounter with a handsome stranger seated next to her. When she later wakes from a nap, she finds that her bag with her ID, cellphone and laptop are missing — as is the mysterious stranger. Lacey told me she was delighted to play a different character

from what her fans are used to seeing: “My character is at a point in her life when she’s gone through a very devastating breakup. She’s really searching for clarity and just trying to find an anchor in her life again. And there is also this mysterious side about her job, and throughout the story, you start to find out what that is. “I really could empathize with her. I’ve certainly had times in my life where I felt a little lost — I could relate to that part of the character. But there was a lot about her that I hadn’t seen in characters I’ve played before. I like that she’s in a situation where things are completely out of control, and she’s starting to feel like she’s going completely insane. At the same time, she has to be the sanest character in the

film because she’s driving the story. It was definitely a challenge.” *** Q: Will “The Client List” return for another season, especially now that Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant? — Nina L., via email A: Lifetime has officially canceled the racy nighttime drama after two seasons. Word has it that Jennifer and the execs were at a standoff over how to handle her real-life pregnancy within the show’s story line. *** Q: I recently caught the encore airing of History’s “The Bible” miniseries, and it made me wonder if there will be more new episodes of the series. — Jackie W., via email A: NBC recently acquired the rights for the sequel to “The

Bible,” called “A.D.: Beyond the Bible,” currently in development. There also is a two-hour theatrical version of the miniseries in the works focusing on the life of Jesus through his Resurrection. The film, called “Son of God,” premieres Feb. 29, 2014. *** Q: Is Drew Barrymore expecting again? Didn’t she just have a baby? — DeeDee P. in Georgia A: Drew did indeed give birth to daughter Olive in September 2012, stating at the time that she wanted another baby, and soon. She got her wish, as Drew is now pregnant with baby No. 2, and is due late spring/early summer 2014. *** Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475;

The Payson Rimstones’ Annual Gem and Mineral Show takes place this weekend at the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino Event Center.

ROCK STARS No one leaves empty-handed from gem and mineral show The Payson Rimstones’ Annual Gem and Mineral Show promises to educate and entertain. Better yet, guests will probably go home with something. “Even people that don’t usually go to something like this end up with something in their hands,” said show organizer and Rimstones club member Margaret Jones. For two days, Saturday, Nov. 16 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Sunday, Nov. 17 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) in the Mazatzal Casino’s old bingo hall, vendors will have rocks, minerals and fossils to show off and sell. For a nominal entrance fee of $2 (kids

under 12 are free), guests can wander about and learn, touch and feel all types of rough and finished rocks. Vendors will also have jewelry and other goods. “It’s a great place to get Christmas gifts,” said Jones. But the Rimstones mostly hold the show to educate and support Rim Country students who plan on furthering their education in science or mathematics. “All proceeds from the entrance fee to the silent auction go towards scholarships and materials for area libraries,” said Jones. Each year, she said, the Rimstones grant scholarships, according to education interest and need, from $500 to $3,000 to graduating seniors planning on studying sciences or math. She said the club also purchases books and magazines for the elementary schools, Payson and Pine libraries. During the year, the club goes into third-grade classrooms to show and teach the difference between rocks.

“We come to third-grade classes and we give a demonstration about the different types of rocks, so the children can see metamorphic vs. sedimentary rocks,” said Jones, “Then we give them an egg carton with 10 different types of rocks to start their rock collection.” In keeping with the educational mission of the club, they will have an educational corner at the show. “We will have a college professor, who comes from GCC (Gila Community College); she gives expertise on different types of rocks,” said Jones. Mostly, the show is a lot of fun for the adults as well as the children. Jones said she enjoys watching the adults’ reaction at the spin-the-wheelget-a-rock table. “Adults like it too because it’s a spinning wheel,” she said. At another table, the Rimstones will show how some rocks become fluorescent to phosphorescent under certain light. CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

“You put them under a particular wave length light, it has to do with their electron make up,” she said. The kids, though, seem to like the sandstone painting the best. “We get pieces of sandstone from Snowflake — the gentleman donates it for kids to paint on,” Jones said. “One year, we had a couple of children that came and did not want to stop painting on sandstone. Some of the children are very artistic — and they get to take it home with them.” Jones got excited about the Gold Prospectors of America from Show Low. She said they usually set up in the middle of the room, have a gold nugget that they auction off, and teach people about to

go out to prospect. “They will set up kind of in the middle of everything and have a lot of demonstrating,” said Jones. “They show how an actual person who would go out to prospect — such as how to pan. The kids get a kick out of that.” Jones said the rocks and minerals people will see and touch are good quality. The Casino offers free drinks, said Jones, soda, coffee and tea. Around the corner from the event, The Grill always has something good to eat. People often return year after year, she said. “It’s a good, community event,” said Jones. For more information on the show or scholarships, please contact Margaret Jones at margieaberry@gmail.com.

PAYSON RIMSTONES ROCK CLUB For anyone interested in attending the Rimstones Rock Club, it meets the second Wednesday of every month in the Payson Public Library. Each meeting has a speaker on different topics from meteorites to fossils and minerals. The club does a field trip once a month. The most recent trip looked for fossils on the Rim with other rock clubs in Arizona.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A project benefits from your organizational skills that get it up and running. Your success leaves a highly favorable impression. Don’t be surprised if you get some positive feedback soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Spend time on practical matters through the end of the week. Then begin shifting your focus to more-artistic pursuits. Resist being overly self-critical. Just allow yourself to feel free to create. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Restarting those creative projects you had set aside for a while will help provide a much-needed soothing balance to your hectic life. Besides, it will be like meeting old friends again. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans could make it tough to keep a commitment. But stay with it. You’ll get an A-plus for making the effort to do what’s right and not taking the easy way out by running off. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Lion’s enthusiasm for a workplace policy review is admirable. But be sure you know who is really behind the resistance to change before pointing your finger at the wrong person. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You can expect to have to do a lot of work through midweek. Devote the rest of the week to checking your holiday plans in case some need to be adjusted to accommodate changes. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Try to avoid signing on the dotted line in the early part of the week. You need time to study issues that weren’t fully explored. Later in the week might be more favorable for decision-making. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A new development could snarl travel schedules or other holiday-linked projects. Some flexibility might be called for to deal with the problems before they get too far out of hand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Relatives seek your advice on a matter you’d rather not be involved in. If so, use that sage Sagittarian tact to decline the “offer,” so that no one’s feelings are needlessly hurt. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A shift in planning direction might help you speed up your progress toward achieving that long-planned goal. Trusted colleagues are ready to offer some valuable support. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) An unexpected demand for settlement of an old loan could create some pre-holiday anxiety. But you might not really owe it. Check your records thoroughly before remitting payment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It’s a good time to get into the social swim and enjoy some well-earned fun and games with those closest to you before you have to resume more serious activities next week. BORN THIS WEEK: Your ability to sense the needs of others makes you a wise counselor for those seeking help with their problems. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH

Early detection of colon cancer has greatly reduced deaths BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: The thought of colon cancer makes me cringe. My father died of it. Colonoscopy wasn’t done in those days. I’m interested in learning all the ways to diagnose colon cancer in its early stages. Can you give me the rundown? — N.C. ANSWER: Colon cancer makes everyone cringe. It’s the third most common cancer in men, being surpassed only by prostate and lung cancer. It’s the third most common cancer in women, with breast and lung cancer coming in first and second place. Colonoscopy, the inspection of the colon with a telescope-like device, has greatly reduced deaths from colon cancer. Not only does this exam give doctors a comprehensive view of the colon, but it allows them to biopsy suspicious areas and suspicious polyps. Almost all colon cancers start out as polyps. A polyp looks a bit like a small plant breaking through the soil. A simple test for colon cancer is examining a stool specimen for occult (hidden) blood. Even early cancers can cause minor bleeding. Another stool test is FIT, fecal immunochemical test, a way of detecting hidden blood by a different method. Both of these tests are done yearly. A test that detects altered DNA — cancerous changes in colon cells — is a third test done on feces. It is constantly being fine-tuned. Double-contrast barium enema was the chief test for colon cancer detection until colonoscopy was widely adopted. It’s still a useful test. Barium is introduced into the colon through the rectum, and then the barium is drained. What’s left is a thin coat of barium on the colon wall. Next, air is passed into the colon. The result is a clear picture of the colon lining and a clear picture of any incipient cancer. CT (computed tomography) colonography, also called virtual colonoscopy because the procedure produces pictures similar to what’s seen by the naked eye in a colonoscopy, is a scan after air is pumped into the colon. If you’re deciding which test is most appropriate for you, depend on your doctor’s judgment. The pamphlet on colon cancer treats this subject in detail. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 505W, 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: In order to play college sports, my son was required to have a physical, which included an EKG. According to my son, everything was fine, and the examining doctor put no limitations on what he could do. According to the EKG report, a copy of which was sent to us, he has sinus bradycardia. Does this have any bearing on his playing college-level sports? — E.F. ANSWER: Sinus bradycardia is a slow heartbeat, one less than 60 beats (some say 50) a minute. If the doctor found nothing else wrong and if your son has no symptoms, sinus bradycardia isn’t a health concern. Athletes, almost as a rule, have a slow heartbeat. Their conditioning has made their hearts more-efficient pumps. They eject more blood with each heartbeat, so they need fewer beats.
