ost everyone I know relates the month of February with Valentine’s Day; but you may have forgotten that we also commemorate our U.S. Presidents during this month. I have been reading Cormac O’Brien’s book: Secret lives of the U.S. Presidents – what a hoot! As O’Brien states in the subtitle the book is truly “What your teachers never told you about the men of the White House”. O’Brien has an extensive bibliography of noted historians and researchers so I’ll accept that most of what he writes is as accurate as can be expected. Because of space limitations and word count I’ll only be able to get from Washington to Wilson in this article – but watch the “Buzz” for more in March. Bet ya’ didn’t know that our first President, George Washington, was paid (at current dollar value) the “kingly” sum of one million dollars per year. In 1789 dollars that was twenty-five thousand. Washington did not want to be a king or set up a monarchy; yet, he was certainly paid like one – our current President makes a mere four hundred thousand dollars per year. Who says there have not been governmental pay cuts? George Washington had “leopard skin” blankets for all of his horses and spent seven percent of his annual income on alcohol. Guess the water in the swamp was no better then, than now. However, Washington never served in his namesake city; rather our nation’s capital was in New York City, New York and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during his administrations. Moving on to John Adams our second President;Adams is not the beer brewer; that was his second cousin Samuel. Perhaps, most notably, John Adams was our nation’s first “one term President”. Adams lost a rematch with Thomas Jefferson. Not to be “under done” by his father, John Quincy Adams, our sixth President and the son of John Adams, was our second “one term President”. John Quincy Adams won against Andrew Jackson in what was J.Q.’s second run for President (J.Q. lost to James Monroe in a previous election) and then lost the rematch with Jackson in his third run for President. To me, one of those interesting quotes from history: John Quincy Adams, a man who ran three times (winning once) for President of the Unites States said of his four years in office:“The four most miserable years of my life were my four years in the presidency”. Go figure! Between John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams comes arguably three of the brightest Presidents of all times: Jefferson, Madison and Monroe. John F. Kennedy’s 1962 quote when Kennedy entertained a group of Nobel Prize winners in the White House, Kennedy her-

alded the event as “the most distinguished gathering of intellectual talent that ever graced the Executive Mansion – except for when Thomas Jefferson dined there alone”. That one statement says a lot about Jefferson. To me however, one of his nicknames says it all – Jefferson was called the “Philosopher of Democracy”. If Jefferson gave us the philosophy of democracy, James Madison, our fourth President, gave us the document. Madison is revered as the “Father of the Constitution”. His “Virginia Plan” was adopted as the basis for our U.S. Constitution and Madison’s intellect was instrumental in plotting our nation’s course to create a new government. Near his death Madison was overheard saying “(death is) Nothing more than a change of mind”. President number five, James Monroe ushered in the first “Era of Good Feeling” for our Nation. His “Monroe Doctrine” (mostly penned by John Quincy Adams) put European powers on notice to quit their colonization in the Western Hemisphere, as author Cormac O’Brien noted: “the United States was saying ‘Hear me roar”. On the world’s stage we’ve continued that roar for over two hundred years. Other than old “Andy” (of “in 1814, we took a little trip” fame – bet the younger generations don’t remember Johnny Horton’s big hit, the Battle of New Orleans) Jackson and the Presidents that followed, up until Abraham Lincoln, were pretty bland. Oh, sure, Martin Van Buren threw lavish parties; William Henry Harrison only lasted a little over a month on the job; Harrison’s replacement John Tyler may well be the real “father of our country” – maybe I should tell that story. Bear with me; Tyler fathered 15 children with two wives, the last of which was born when Tyler was 70 years old. When Tyler married his second wife his oldest child from his first wife was five years older than his second wife – what does that make, in terms of relationship, that child and all succeeding children in respect to the second wife – are they their own aunt/uncle? Confused, I am also. But just consider this,Tyler was born during George Washington’s administration and his last surviving child died during the Truman administration; therefore, the Tyler family spanned the administrations of 32 American Presidents. James K. Polk’s hairstyle (referred to as a “mullet”) set the trend for many 21st Century rock bands. Zachary Taylor lasted in office longer than William Henry Harrison; but, not much longer – about a year and some change. Millard Fillmore, now there’s a name everyone remembers, although undistinguished as the President, was considered the “handsomest man you’ve ever seen” – by Queen Victoria of England. Number 14, Franklin Pierce’s own party changed its campaign slogan to “Anybody But Pierce” when he ran for reelection –

Andrew Johnson, sometimes call “King Andy” or “Sir Veto” because of his penchant for directing government, with or without Congressional approval (sounds a little like national government today with all of the “Executive Orders”). Johnson was never “elected” President; rather, he became President upon the death of Abraham Lincoln. Also, Johnson is the first President to be “impeached” by the U.S. House of Representatives and tried by the U.S. Senate. Saved by a margin of one vote Johnson would have been convicted and removed from office. His “crime”; Johnson violated a Federal Law (Tenure of Office Act) when he fired his Secretary of War who had been approved by the Senate. Johnson was a tailor by trade, had no formal education and was taught to read and write by his wife. Yet, he was elected to Congress, became President and later became the only former President to serve in the U.S. Senate. Johnson was followed by Ulysses S. Grant the famous or, based upon your persuasion, infamous Union Civil War General. An interesting fact: Grant became the first President elected and completed two full terms since Andrew Jackson – 10 administrations prior. Grant’s “presidency has become something of a conundrum for historians who can’t seem to decide whether it was a flawed success or an abject failure”. Somewhere in the middle is probably the correct placement. Although fraught with civil service corruption during his administration; Grant’s commitment to empowering freed blacks and making peace with the Plains Indians makes him stand out as a courageous national leader. Most historians also give him high marks in foreign affairs because he patched up relations with

sounds like a modern-day Democrat thing. Now let me be nice about James Buchanan so as not to offend my friends in Pennsylvania. According to Cormac O’Brien, Buchanan will be mostly remembered “for doing nothing while the nation unraveled”. That brings us, if you’re counting, to number 16 – Abraham Lincoln; however, before I write about “Honest Abe” let me digress and tell a little about Andrew Jackson. Rumored to have been in nearly 100 duels, and lived to tell about them, Jackson “would throw down” over almost anything that he believed besmirched his honor. Heroic military leader, outspoken states’ righter, womanizer, drunkard, rowdy bar-room fighter; Jackson excelled at each endeavor. Yet he will be revered as one of the greatest of our Presidents - until we remove his picture from the twentyDr. Kyle D. McCrea and Dr. Victoria Vo dollar bill (LOL). So now back to U.S. President Number 16, Abraham (nmn) Lincoln – “nmn” means “no middle name”. There have been 44 men who served as President of the United States; one, Grover Cleveland served twice, in non-successive terms as the 22nd and later the 24th President. Of those 44, 25 had middle names and 19, like Lincoln did not. Harry Truman’s middle name was simply the initial S with no period. Aside from no middle name, much like Washington there is so much to write about “The Great Emancipator”. Born into poverty in Kentucky, having only a single year of formal education, strong as the proverbial “ox”, insatiable reader, and successful Home for Dentistry lawyer; until 1858 aYour virtual unknown politician; Lincoln stands at or near the top of the class as a U.S. President.

Presidents’ Day continued Great Britain after the Civil War. The 19th President was Rutherford B. Hayes, another “one termer”, Republican and most noted because he lost the popular vote to Samuel Tilden. Yet, a Congressional Committee of 15 appointed to “sort out the election mess” (hanging chad anyone, or election fraud) split on party lines, eight Republicans for Hayes and seven Democrats for Tilden making Hayes President. A teetotaler and religious zealot, Hayes banned alcohol from the White House and spent every night singing religious hymns. Not much else to say about his administration so on to James A. Garfield. Garfield was a Republican, and holds the distinction of serving one of the least amounts of time as an elected President. Sadly, Garfield was shot and died less than a year after being elected. While we’ll never know; some historians believe that Garfield may well have been one of the best equipped (based upon experience and education) men to hold the office of President of the United States. Other interesting facts: Garfield was the first “left-handed” President and the last born in a log cabin. Chester A. Arthur, although he has a great last name (LOL), was not elected; rather became President upon the death of James Garfield. He did not run for election after his term of service. A quintessential machine politician, Arthur’s was generally known as dapper, congenial, sweet-talking and a schmoozer. After four Republican Presidents and 16 years of Republican rule along comes the first Democrat President since Andrew Johnson – Grover Cleveland. Cleveland’s two administrations, nonconsecutive, solve the discrepancy of one less President than administrations. Between Cleveland’s two terms is another Republican Benjamin Harrison. Harrison was a President who also did not win the popular vote; but was elected by the Electoral College. Many historians consider his one term “a dud”. There is a lot to write about Cleveland’s terms in office but I want to relate one fact that should establish a credo for all elected officials. During his campaign for President, it was factually reported that Cleveland, a bachelor at the time, had fathered a child. When asked how to “spin” this fact in hopes of not losing the election, Cleveland was quoted as saying: “Tell them the truth”. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all candidates followed that creed today? Many historians have agreed that there are three basic

themes to Manifest Destiny; e.g., the special virtues of the American people and their institutions; America's mission to redeem and remake the world in the image of America; and a divine destiny under God's direction to accomplish this wonderful task. I never attributed these themes to “Wobbly Willie” (a popular nickname for William McKinley). However, O’Brien notes a direct quote from McKinley who said: “We need Hawaii just as much and a good deal more than we did California; it is Manifest Destiny.” Wow, I wonder if McKinley foresaw the Golden State’s current financial troubles which I’m sure make Hawaii a better deal even today. On a serious note, obviously President McKinley didn’t foresee the anarchist Leon Czolgosz who shot the recently re-elected President at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, NY. McKinley died 8 days after the shooting, his death making Theodore Roosevelt the President. Teddy (a name he really didn’t like) Roosevelt made the grade to get on top at Mount Rushmore, was a naturalist, militarist, pugilist and about any other “ist” you can name. He walked softly and carried a big stick; but sometimes his stick got stuck in the mud and muck. TR wanted to remove “in God we trust” from U.S. coinage and tried to revise our spelling to make it simpler. In response to Roosevelt’s spelling simplification overtures the Louisville Courier-Journal wrote: “Nuthing escapes Mr. Rucevelt. No subject is tu hi fr him to takl, nor tu lo for him to notis.” General “Bull Moose” gave up on the idea. Theodore Roosevelt’s hand-picked successor was William Howard, “Big Bill” Taft; and boy oh boy was he big. Until he remodeled, his advisors sometimes had to pull him out of the White House’s bath tubs – talk about getting the naked truth. Taft and Roosevelt had a falling out over policy and four years after being elected, as Roosevelt’s man for all seasons, Big Bill Taft found himself in a three-way race for the Presidency. True to form for the Republicans of the time (and maybe history repeats itself today with the split in the Republican Party – ultra right wing vs. moderate Republicans),TR formed a new party - the Bull Moose Party – split the Republicans and gave the White House to Democrat Woodrow Wilson. This, as I have noted, is a historical piece about U.S. Presidents and I’ve covered some “stuff” from Washington to Wilson. However, word count and space has run out so I’ll close this article here and promise to cover from Wilson to Trump in the March edition of the Bayou Buzz – good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise.

Wyatt Horak 4 Years Old

Parents: Kevin & Kelli Horak Grandparents: Pat Horak & Corrine Schumann

Daniel 3Ornelas: to 4 Years Me and my mom were best friends. She was really sweet, she was a wonderful cook. We loved to spend time in the kitchen together. Before she passed, the one thing was to learn all her cooking $500 methods. She OFF said, Invisalign for Moms! ‘I can’t be there to cook it for you, but I want to make sure you know how to cook it.’ That was awesome for her to teach me.

www.lonestarbraces.com

n nn Kamrin Sosa — George Junior High eighth-grader: She teaches me to have confidence and be comfortable with who I am. She influences by teaching me things about life and showing me how to handle situations. — Situations with my friends, with boys, with my sister a lot. One of my favorite memories of her is when we were running late for school one day. We have tile floors and she had on heels. She slid across the floor and she hit her head on the wall.

Offer expires Jan 31, 2019.

n nn Fort Bend County Commissioner Vincent Morales: Mom is 81, not as active anymore, but Mom was always very outgoing, loving to all her family, always willing to do whatever it took to make my brother and I happy. She always put family first. Whether it was when my grandmother got up in age, when there was a need to take care of the grandkids, she always put family first.

Jesse Mata: My mom [Olivia Mata] would always say, ‘It doesn’t matter how poor we are, that doesn’t mean you cannot be clean.’ She always made sure that when we went out to school, church, any outing, we were clean. She would make sure our hair was combed. you know in the farm, you’re dirty. But she would always tell us, ‘There’s no excuse to not be clean.’ She would also say, ‘always respect the elders. Whether you’re black, brown, white.’ In those days, that’s all that lived here. We grew up as a close-knit family. It was always her thing, be clean and respect your elders.

How to Stay Active with Winter Walking Expert tips for staying warm and motivated as temperatures drop

W

ith winter fast approaching, it might seem tempting to ditch your daily walk. But when it comes to getting fit, chilly temperatures might actually be a good thing. That’s because your overall metabolic rate increases in cold weather thanks to something called thermogenesis, the calorie-burning process by which the body generates heat. Add physical activity into the mix, and the benefits might be boosted even further: One 2017 study published in the American Journal of Human Biology found that a group of 53 hikers burned more calories in cold weather than warm, leading to weight loss for both men and women. If you’re looking for a low-impact way to stay active (and perhaps even shed some pounds) in the months to come, here’s what experts suggest to weatherproof your winter walking routine.

Perfect your winter wardrobe There’s a phrase in Scandinavia, where physical activity is winter is highly encouraged: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” Dressing for the cold means layering, says Portland, Oregon-based walking coach Judy Heller, founder of the group

Bayou Buzz • February 2021

Wonders of Walking. Layers keep you warm by creating pockets of air that trap body heat. Heller recommends starting with a moisture-wicking material against your skin (popular options include polyester, merino wool or silk), then adding a second synthetic layer on top. Last goes an outer layer of fleece or another insulating material, and, as needed, a waterproof jacket. Don’t neglect your extremities, either: Hats and gloves are important for staying warm, as are moisture-wicking socks. Avoid cotton socks and clothing, Heller says, since cotton will trap moisture from sweat or snow and leave you feeling wet and chilly. In freezing temperatures, Heller recommends wearing a scarf over your nose and mouth to warm the air you’re breathing. (If you already wear a face mask on your walks as a coronavirus-related precaution, it should serve the same purpose as a scarf.) Besides fitting properly and supporting your feet, the right shoes should also provide insulation and traction in ice or snow. Products like traction chains worn over the soles of walking shoes can add grip, and local running and sporting goods stores may be able to provide you with personalized recommendations based on your gait.

Start slow and stay safe “A lot of [getting active] is figuring out where you are and starting your exercise program at an appropriate level,” says sports medicine specialist Theodore Shybut, M.D., an associate professor of orthopedic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. Cold weather puts added strain on the heart and lungs, which means outdoor walking in the winter may not be suitable for everyone. Talk to your doctor before beginning a new walking routine, particularly if you have a preexisting condition or have recently recovered from an event like a heart attack or surgery. Shybut also notes that people should gradually increase the length of their walks. Consider building up to 30 minutes of brisk walking at a time, five days a week — a benchmark endorsed by organizations like the American Heart Association (you can also split that 30-minute goal into smaller chunks throughout the day, Heller says). Other safety tips include going outside when visibility is good (Heller recommends wearing reflective strips on your clothes and shoes if you’ll be walking in the dark), checking the weather forecast before you head outside, and sticking to familiar paths and trails. On particularly icy or inclement days, Shybut says the smartest choice may be to skip an outdoor walk altogether. Slippery sidewalks pose a fall risk for people of all ages, but older adults are even more vulnerable to falls and their complications, including fractures.

Lastly, don’t forget to stay hydrated. “When it’s cool out people don’t have the same thirst urge or pay as much attention to it,” Shybut says, so make a point to drink adequate fluids before a walk, particularly if it’s going to be a longer one.

Stick to a winter routine Attire and safety precautions aside, staying motivated can be the hardest part of getting outside in cold weather. How to overcome the motivation gap? Accountability, Heller says, can be key to helping you stick with it until winter walking becomes habitual. Penciling in walks with friends or a formal walking group can help, provided you take coronavirusrelated precautions such as wearing a mask. Talking to a friend on the phone while you walk is another strategy — and something Heller herself does every Sunday when she connects with her training partner, who lives an hour and a half away. Just don’t forget to use earbuds to keep your hands free while you talk. Another option is simply keeping your mind and senses engaged in observing the scenery around you, making your walk a more mindful activity. And don’t forget, Heller says, that starting a new activity is an investment in your future fitness, even if the results take time. In other words? Starting a winter walking routine today means you could be a pro by spring. https://www.aarp.org/health/healthy-living/info-2020/ winter-walking.html
