JILL JACKSON’S HOLLYWOOD | TONY RIZZO
Anthony Hopkins to play Hitchcock HOLLYWOOD — Alfred Hitchcock was the master of suspense and the macabre, and earned his fame through classic films such as “Rear Window” (1954), “The Man Who Knew Too Much” (1956) and “Vertigo” (1958), all starring James Stewart; “North By Northwest” with Cary Grant (1959), “Psycho” with Anthony Perkins (1960) and “The Birds” with Rod Taylor (1963), to name just a few. In the recent HBO film “The Girl,” Tippi Hedren (played by Sienna Miller) reveals how Hitchcock (played by Toby Jones) attempted to blackmail her for sexual favors. Now, Fox Searchlight has pushed up the release date for its “Hitchcock” biopic, due out Nov. 23. The film, which stars Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock, premiered at the American Film Institute Festival, is sure to figure heavily in the Oscar race. Oscar-winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”) plays his wife, and Scarlett Johansson and newlywed Jessica Biel co-star. It tells the love story between Hitchcock and his wife during the filming of “Psycho.” He’d always had a penchant for beautiful blondes, as demonstrated by the females in his films: Joan Fontaine (“Rebecca”), Ingrid Bergman (“Spellbound”), Grace Kelly (“Rear Window”), Doris Day (“The Man Who Knew Too Much”), Kim Novak (“Vertigo”), Eva Marie Saint (North by Northwest”), Janet Leigh (“Psycho”), and Tippi Hedren (“The Birds” and “Marnie”). Rent any of these films, and you’ll wind up rent-
ing them all ... they’re that great! Jeremy Renner, Oscar nominated for “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town,” who took over the “Bourne” legacy from Matt Damon, has replaced Steve Carell in “Imagine.” It’s a dramedy that stars Julianne Moore and Al Pacino, who plays a 60-something Springsteen-type rocker who discovers an unopened letter written to him by John Lennon when he was 19. That inspires him to find the son he’s never met (Renner). Lucky for us, Pacino can play anyone, even Bruce Springsteen. Vince Vaughn, who normally does comedies like “Lay the Favorite” with Bruce Willis and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and the upcoming reteaming with Owen Wilson in “Internship” out June 7, will next do “Triple Time,” an actionthriller being directed by his “Couple’s Retreat” director Peter Billingsley. Remember the little boy in the perennial holiday movie “A Christmas Story”? That little boy, 12 years old then, is now 40 and the director of “Triple Time.” When you play in an iconic film like “A Christmas Story” it becomes a part of your life forever. For several years he’s been trying to exec produce a musical adaption of it. So when you watch that film again this year, know that the little boy with glasses who longs for a Red Ryder BB Gun can demand Vince Vaughn to move in “Triple Time” ... and he’ll do it!

Happy holiday entertaining Host a holiday party that’s simple and festive with a combination of pre-made and homemade delights from the celebration experts at Wilton. For starters, a cookie pan does double duty for holiday-shaped homemade Crispy Cheese Crackers. Serve these aromatic rosemary treats, made into Christmas trees, snowmen and stockings, alongside a colorful assortment of fresh vegetables and made-from-scratch fireroasted jalapeño dip. “Guests will think you spent hours baking in the kitchen when you wow them with a seasonal selection of hand-decorated gingerbreads,” says Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. Easy to assemble with all the trimmings included, there’s a ready-to-decorate gingerbread kit to fit any yuletide gathering. Complete with pre-baked gingerbread, each kit contains decorating accessories like candies and icings to personalize your own mini village, Christmas tree, gingerpop cookies and more. For another fun twist on a traditional gingerbread house, Siler recommends getting the kids involved. They’ll love the marshmallow-y Holiday House Treat made of cinnamon toasted oats cereal. Once the house is built, watch the kids decorate their yummy creation with a variety of gumdrops, licorice, icings and candies. To cater to a more sophisticated palate, Siler suggests Salted Caramel Bacon Cordial Cups. A lavish blend of vanilla pudding, crisp-cooked bacon and whipped cream is flavored with caramel ice cream topping and piped into edible, dark cocoa Candy Melt cordial cups. They’re bitesized holiday bliss. Don’t forget eggnog. This year, give your favorite prepared eggnog a chocolate kick and serve Eggnog Hot Chocolate garnished with peppermint Candy Curls.

three people. Of course the long, smooth, ﬂat stones called metates were occasionally found, half buried in the ground. These were used to grind and smooth beads, as well as to grind corn and seeds. One of the less obvious signs of encampment is the roasting pit, used to bake the precious mescal. The Elders pointed out that one of the ﬁrst signs that such a pit is near could be found in surrounding juniper and oak trees. Several very old stumps, up to seven feet in height, had been stripped of their branches for wood over the years to ﬁre up the roasting pit. Upon closer observation we could plainly see the slight mound identifying the pit itself. A cluster of rock debris, cracked and blackened, covered the mound. A small rodent hole dug into the mound revealed diggings of pure ash from not far under the surface. Down in the wash a small stream trickled from the spring. Water collected in several natural tanks where the people developed sand ﬁlters to collect more puriﬁed water. Along the drainage, on either side where bedrock was exposed, there are numerous metates worn into the rock. There
also is a rock overhang, the perfect place for an Apache family to live close to the water and the grinding stones. Just west of the campground, along the road that runs from the Payson Golf Course up Burch Mesa to the airport, there is rugged cliff and in this outcropping of rock there are many crevices that became burial sites for the old generation of Apaches. The Elders pointed out that a favorite place to consign the dead was a crevice or an overhang in a massive outcropping of rock. Placing rocks over the opening sealed in the body. I recalled a 1970 oral history from the Rim Country Museum archive, in which Pearl Hilligas Morrison told about her girlhood explorations with friend Julia Randall. “We kids used to love to play up there, and we found a skeleton in a rock there on Burch Mesa. He had all his beads. He had been there a long time, but we wouldn’t touch anything.” After covering the pre-reservation camping area, we went across the drainage to where the postreservation people had camped. Here we found evidence from the
more recent Apache usage of this place. We could see various caches of used cans, weathered leather, string and metal strips hanging from the trees. The camp living areas were removed from a roasting pit to avoid excess heat and smoke. We crossed back over the depression with its trickling stream, and I heard laughter ringing out from the Apache women in our group. Momentarily I was whisked back to another time when Apaches were free to laugh and the land echoed with their happiness. That was before the second half of the 19th century when they dared not make noise lest they be detected by the cavalry troops who were always hunting Indians. The laughter now underlined a different era, and hopefully a time when Apache ways and places will be respected. We walked gently on this land that has been hallowed by so many before us. To come in contact with the artifacts they left behind gives us to sense a kinship with these human beings, with whom we have so much in common. NEXT: Chediski, A Farm Not A Fire

Doug Bland is a teacher, writer, environmentalist and pastor at the Tempe Community Christian Church, a.k.a. "the Storytelling Church". He has received awards for producing multi-cultural, interfaith storytelling concerts. He has initiated a worship experience called "Anam Cara: a story-based journey in search of holy ground", wherein storytellers from a variety of spiritual traditions and ethnic backgrounds come together to tell the sacred stories they hold closest to their hearts.
Tellabration A time for terrific tall tales and some Arizona history Once again fans of old-fashioned story telling will flock to Pine Community Center the Saturday before Thanksgiving for Tellabration. Tellabration is a worldwide benefit evening of storytelling. Its originator J. G. Pinkerton envisioned this international event as a means of building community support for storytelling. In 1988 the event was launched by the Connecticut Storytelling Center in six locations across the state. A great success,
Tellabration extended to several other states the following year, and then, in 1990, expanded nationwide under the umbrella of the National Storytelling Network. In 1995, for the first time, there was a Tellabration in Japan. By 1997, there were Tellabration events on every continent but Antarctica. The event in Pine includes a meet and greet and dinner with the guest storytellers, followed by an evening of lively Arizona tales commemorating the state centennial. The seating for the dinner is limited and costs $25 per person. It starts at 5 p.m., with dinner served at 5:30 p.m. in the community center dining room, featuring a menu of pork tenderloin, Ger-
man potato salad, Caesar salad, a side vegetable, roll and sorbet. To make a dinner reservation, call (928) 476-6427. The evening of storytelling is at 7 p.m. in the Pine Community Center Cultural Hall and will showcase the talents of Don Doyle, Doug Bland, Victor McCraw, Liz Warren, Dee Strickland, Dustin Loehr and Dorothy Anderson. Admission to the storytelling event alone is $5 per person. Proceeds will benefit the Pine Strawberry School. ABOUT THE STORYTELLERS Don Doyle
Don Doyle is once again the host for the evening. He is a retired as a professor of theatre from Arizona State University
and is now a free-lance director of theatre and opera as well as a nationally recognized professional storyteller. Doyle appears as a featured teller and workshop leader at storytelling festivals, educational institutions, and as a consultant on storytelling for corporations in the U.S. and abroad. He has received several prestigious honors since his early retirement from ASU: the Medallion of Merit Award from the National Society of Arts and Letters for a lifetime contribution in theatre to the State of Arizona; the Campton Bell Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Alliance for Theatre and Education (artists and educators serving young people); and after serving three CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your work on a recent job assignment is impressive and is sure to be noticed. Meanwhile, expect to receive news about an upcoming holiday event you won’t want to miss. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Saving the world one person at a time is what you were born to do. So accept it when people ask you for help, especially during the holiday season. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Now that you’ve resolved all doubts about an important decision, you can surprise a lot of people by defending your stand with your strong and well-reasoned arguments. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The holiday mood stirs your need to nurture everyone from the family cat to great-grandma. But don’t overdo it, especially with teens, who like to feel grown up. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Enjoy basking in the warm love of family and close friends. But don’t fall into a prolonged catnap yet. There’s still much to do before you can put up your paws and relax. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid pushing others to work as hard as you do on a common project. Instead, encourage them to do their best, and they might well reward you with a pleasant surprise. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Like the sensible Libra you are, you no doubt started your holiday shopping already. But be careful to keep within your budget. Shop around for the best buys. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Love and friendship remain strong in your aspect over the next several days. This is a good time to develop new relationships and strengthen old ones. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A beloved family member has news that will brighten your holidays. Also expect to hear from friends who had long since moved out of your life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family and friends are in for a surprise when you accept the need to make a change without being talked into it. (Bet it surprised you, too — didn’t it?) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Restoring an old friendship might not be as easy as you hoped. You might want to explore the reasons for your former buddy’s reluctance to cooperate. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your party-going activities pick up as the holiday season takes off. Enjoy your plunge into the social swim as you make new friends and renew old friendships. BORN THIS WEEK: You are caring and considerate — two wonderful attributes that endear you to people of all ages. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH
Trigger finger not a cowboy disorder BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. 2012 NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Three or four months ago, the ring finger on my right hand started making popping noises when I bent it. Now it’s still doing that, and it catches in a bent position from time to time. I work as a carpenter, and I can’t afford to take time off. What do you think this is? — R.B. ANSWER: My guess is trigger finger. The tendons that bend the fingers travel from the forearm into the palm and then onto each finger and the thumb. On their way to the fingers, a sheath of tough tissue encircles them. Repetitive movements of the fingers irritate the protective tendon sheaths, and they swell. The swelling squeezes the tendon, and the popping noise you hear is the tendon freeing itself from its swollen sheath. That snapping noise sounds like the noise heard when cocking a gun’s trigger. As time goes by, the finger might become locked for some time in the bent position. You don’t want to hear this, but rest is essential to permit the tendon to move smoothly. If you must work, padded gloves afford some protection for the finger. Gripping a tool like a hammer is particularly hard on the tendon and its sheath. Tools with a larger-than-normal handle are less of a problem. The best protection is wearing a metal splint so that the finger can’t move. Your doctor can give you a cortisone injection into the problem area, and that often reduces the swelling quickly. You must rest your finger after the injection for at least three days. If two injections fail to free the finger, then you need to consult an orthopedic surgeon for an opinion on surgical release of the tendon. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: This past summer, I got the shock of my life at a family get-together. My cousin, whom I hadn’t seen in 10 years, has bulging eyes. Her mother — my aunt — told me it was due to a thyroid problem. I’d never heard of a thyroid problem affecting the eyes. Does it? — G.D. ANSWER: It can. An overactive thyroid gland can lead to deposits of material in the eye sockets, which causes the eyes to protrude. There are treatments for this complication of hyperthyroidism. I’m sure this cousin is under the care of a thyroid specialist and an ophthalmologist. The booklet on thyroid disorders explains the many conditions arising from a malfunctioning gland. To order a copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 401W, 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: Can hair grow on the lips if a person shaves very close to the upper and lower lips? Some informed individuals say no. — L.G. ANSWER: Never in my life have I seen hair on people’s lips. Lips have no hair follicles. You even could shave the lips if you felt so inclined (but please don’t try this), and hair would not grow on them. If you have evidence to the contrary, let me know. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
