Did You Know: Candy

June is National Candy Month.

Americans consume more than 25 pounds of candy per person per year. People in Denmark are the biggest candy consumers, eating around 36 pounds per person per year. If you look at just chocolate consumption, the Swiss are the winners, eating 22.4 pounds per person. Ronald Reagan loved jelly beans so much that he not only kept them in the Oval Office but also on Air Force One. Over 300 billion Pez candies are consumed in the U.S. each year. The biggest candy holiday is Halloween, with almost two billion dollars in sales. Leo Hirshfield named the Tootsie Roll candy after his daughter “Tootsie” who was five years old at the time. The favorite candy flavor in America is chocolate, followed by berry flavors. Milk chocolate was invented in Switzerland by a man named David Peter. He devised a way of adding milk to create the world’s first milk chocolate in 1876.

In the four weeks before Christmas, nearly two billion candy canes are sold, enough to circle the globe more than 4.5 times. Chocolate manufacturers use 40 percent of the world’s almonds and 20 percent of the world’s peanuts. The melting point of cocoa butter is just below the human body temperature--which is why it literally melts in your mouth. About 65 percent of American candy brands have been around for more than 50 years.

Did you know? Senora Louise Smart Dodd was born to William Smart, a Civil War soldier, and Ellen Victoria Cheek Dodd in 1882. Senora was the only daughter in a family of six children. When Senora was 16, her mother died in childbirth with her sixth child. Senora stepped up to help her father raise all of her siblings in Washington state. Seeing all that her own father did to keep the family together, and after hearing a church sermon about Mother’s Day, Senora decided fathers were equally deserving of the honor. She approached the Spokane Ministerial Alliance and suggested her own father’s birthday (June 5) as a day to honor fathers. Although her efforts began in the early 1900s, it wasn’t until 1972 under President Richard Nixon that a permanent observance of Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June was established. Senora got to see her dream come to fruition and witnessed four other actual Father’s Day observances. She died at the age of 96 in 1978.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.

Sharing Hometown Recipes, Cooking Tips and Coupons By Janet Tharpe

Chimichangas Bring Restaurant Flair to Your Dinner Table “If you like Mexican food, this is a must try! Teresa Malkamus

Q. Will the case ever be closed on the two-centuries-old question of who murdered Napoleon? A. In a surprising new development, scientists at the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics believe they may indeed have solved this one, says Constance Holden in “Science” magazine. Historians have long speculated about what killed the 52-year-old, who died in exile on the Isle of St. Helena in 1821. Stomach cancer, his doctor said, but analysis of some preserved hairs and accounts of symptoms raised the notion that he was poisoned with arsenic. Now, however, the Institute has ruled out homicide. New analysis used samples of Napoleon’s hairs from when he was only a year old and others cut a few days before his death, as well as hairs from his wife and son and 10 others living at the time. The hairs, placed in a nuclear reactor and bombarded with neutrons, were all found to be extremely toxic, with arsenic levels more than 100 times those found today, reported the Institute’s director. Napoleon’s arsenic load registered 8.3 parts per million as an infant and 18.9 ppm at death. At the time, arsenic was everywhere: in paints, drugs, tapestries and preserved food; so no murderer was implicated but rather a murderous environment.

About Relay For Life History of Relay For Life

In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office. He decided to personally raise money for the fight by doing something he enjoyed—running marathons.

While he circled the track those 24 hours, he thought about how others could take part. He envisioned a 24-hour team relay event that could raise more money to fight cancer. Months later he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay event known as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. In 1986, 19 teams took part in the first team relay event on the track at the colorful, historical Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000. An indescribable spirit prevailed at the track and in the tents that dotted the infield. What is Relay For Life Today? The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. What Happens at Relay For Life Events? Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and fight back. Celebrate – The Survivors Lap Relay starts with a Survivors Lap – a inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories

survivorship. The event begins with a Survivors Lap in which cancer survivors take a victory lap around the track. A candlelight ceremony is held later in the evening to honor cancer survivors and remember those who we’ve lost to this disease.

One person can make a difference. Nowhere is that more evident than with the story of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, which began in Tacoma, Washington, as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer.

In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for more than 83 miles. Throughout the night, friends paid $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. He raised $27,000 to fight cancer. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course.

A Community Event

we’ve achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are ensuring that more lives are saved each year – like those of each individual on the track. We also recognize and celebrate caregivers at Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer. At Relay, people understand the frustrations and joys of being a caregiver, since the effects of cancer reach far beyond just the person diagnosed. Remember – The Luminaria Ceremony After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. As people take time to remember, those who have walked alongside others battling cancer can grieve and find healing. This is a time that truly highlights the importance of defeating this disease. Fight Back – The Fight Back Ceremony Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something as simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected officials about cancer. By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and fight back against a disease that takes too much. Celebrate, remember, and fight back are themes that link all Relays events together, but you can learn more about national event standards and recommendations and more about how to structure your Relay’s planning committee using a suggested three-tier approach by connecting to the documents below. Philosophy – Why We Relay The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost

to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. It’s a life-changing experience. At Relay, every person in the community has a chance to celebrate, remember, and fight back. And every person who participates joins others around the globe as part of this worldwide movement to end cancer. Everyone's reason to Relay is as unique as their own personal story. At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, and support from others who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease. You have a chance to meet people in the community who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer in our lifetime. You can thank all the people who have done so much to support you through your personal cancer experience. And you can gather together with friends, family, and colleagues to laugh, cry, and create lasting memories. No matter why you take part in Relay, however, one thing is clear: with every step you take, you are helping the American Cancer Society save lives. With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer – we’re fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Each person who shares the Relay experience can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten the lives of our loved ones or claim another year of anyone’s life. A Presence in Communities Relay For Life is conducted not simply to raise funds, but to involve new communities, give the Society a local presence, and provide communities the opportunity to own the mission. Because Relay provides grassroots access to the population, it is a critical means of achieving the Society’s 2015 goals. A Celebration of Cancer Survivorship Relay is a moving celebration of cancer

Relay For Life is a community event. Event sites should be selected based on how communities identify themselves. A town or small city may see itself as one community. Larger cities are usually made up of several different communities and neighborhoods. If people identify themselves as being part of a given community, the community qualifies as a Relay site. For example, Relays are even happening on college and corporate campuses, on military bases, and in cyberspace. A Community-Owned / Volunteer-Driven Activity As a community event, Relay fulfills a need for belonging that we all have. It also creates a sense of community by bringing people together in a moving and fun atmosphere, with sufficient time for cultivating relationships. The event is volunteer-driven, with Society staff coaching the volunteers. There is a true partnership between volunteers and staff. A Means of Unifying Communities Cancer is indiscriminate and knows no boundaries. As voluntary organizations in the United States must serve an increasingly diverse population and customer base, the way in which the American Cancer Society does business will need to shift. Our ability to communicate appropriately and utilize partners in our efforts will facilitate our growth in reaching diverse communities and ultimately in reaching the 2015 goals of the Society. Inclusion is imperative. Relay Around the Globe The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an international movement to end cancer. Since 1996, the Society has partnered with multiple cancer organizations in countries outside the United States to license and support Relay For Life programs. Through Relay, these organizations bring together passionate volunteers, promote their mission-based activities, and mobilize community members to take action in the fight against cancer. Relay has proven especially important to countries at the beginning stages of educating both the public and health care communities about this deadly and often preventable disease. International Relay For Life events are now held in communities spanning 18 countries outside of the United States.

Name That Item

Celebrating a Stepfather on Father’s Day


SWIM CHAMP Have you ever seen an old Tarzan film? If so, then you might have heard of the name Johnny Weissmuller. The actor played the role of Tarzan in 12 films and was known for his Tarzan yell. Before that, Weissmuller was one of the best swimmers in the world. Weissmuller was born on June 2, 1904, in Austria-Hungary, and moved to America as a young boy. When he was nine, Weissmuller got polio and took up swimming to recover from it. He became a great swimmer, and in 1921, he won the U.S. National Championship title in two events. Weissmuller competed in the Paris Games in 1924 and the Amsterdam Games in 1928 and won five gold medals and a bronze medal in water polo. He won 52 U.S. National Championship titles and set 67 world records in all before retiring from the sport to focus on other things.

A: Pool-ups.


Many items can be found in and around a swimming pool. Each of the following is one such item. Fill in the blanks to name the item.

A: The butter-fly!

* Create a collage of images featuring you and your stepfather. Present it to him on Father’s Day and explain how he has helped shape the person you’ve become. * There are cards made specifically for stepfathers. If one doesn’t express the right sentiments, create a handwritten card that offers the right words. * Children who have not had the coziest relationship with their stepfather should attempt to use this Father’s Day as an opportunity to revisit that relationship and spend time together. It could mark a meaningful turning point for both people in the relationship. * If your biological father and stepfather are friendly to one another, think about going out with both of them at the same time. Plan a special outing to a sporting event or something they both find appealing. * Stepfathers sometimes have to play second fiddle and may not find it easy to blend into an existing family. On Father’s Day, your stepfather should be able to call the shots and have his needs and interests met. A father is a father to children whether he shares their genes or not. Father’s Day is often a time to celebrate all the unsung heroes in a child’s life.

Answers: 1) Sunglasses, 2) Rafts, 3) Towels, 4) Toys, 5) Sunscreen, 6) Goggles, 7) Beach Ball

This June, plans to celebrate Father’s Day may include celebrating a number of notable men in people’s lives. Those men can include stepfathers, many of whom step in after a divorce or the death of a parent and play a strong role in their stepchild’s life. One million American children experience divorce every year. Roughly 65 percent of marriages today don’t go beyond 15 years of marriage. Of the marriages that end in divorce, statistics indicate that women often gain custody of the children and remarry within 5 years. A stepdad may become a part of a child’s life and blended families are often the norm. Whether a man is the biological parent or a stepdad, he is often an important figure in a child’s life. Come Father’s Day, children may want to show their appreciation to the dad in their lives whether or not they share the same DNA or last name. Here are some things to keep in mind. * If both your biological dad and a stepfather are living and in your life, you will have to set aside time for both of them. Perhaps the morning can be devoted to one and the evening to another. Or maybe spend time with your stepfather on the Saturday prior to Father’s Day and spend time with Dad on Sunday.

Celebrate dad with humorous and sincere Father’s Day quotations As we honor the fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, and uncles in our lives, here are some inspirational and funny words to live by. “To be a successful father, there’s one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years.” -- Ernest Hemingway “Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected.” -- Red Buttons “By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” -- Charles Wadsworth “I’m so ugly, my father carries around a picture of the kid who came with his wallet.” -- Rodney Dangerfield “Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.” -- Proverb “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when Igot to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.” -- Mark Twain. “A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.” -- Enid Bagnold “One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” -- George Herbert “If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.” -- Bill Cosby “A father carries pictures where his money used to be.” -- Author unknown

Memorable events on June 19

This year people around the world will celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday, June 19. In addition to marking a special day for dads, June 19 also marked many other events that took place around the world. * 1862: The United States Congress abolishes slavery in all U.S. territories. However, it wasn’t until President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1963 that all four million slaves across the U.S. were freed. * 1897: The first running of the Belmont States takes place. The Belmont States is a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) horse race, open to three-year-old thoroughbreds that is held at Belmont Park in Elmont, NY. It marks the final leg of the Triple Crown, a series of three prestigious horse races. * 1934: The Federal Communications Commission is created. The FCC is charged with regulating all non-federal government use of the radio spectrum (including radio and television broadcasting) and all interstate telecommunications (wire, satellite and cable) as well as all international communications that originate or terminate in

the United States. * 1967: Famed fighter Muhammad Ali is convicted for refusing entry into the U.S. Army. * 1977: Bishop John Neumann becomes the first male saint from the United States. Though Neumann was born in Bohemia, which is now the Czech Republic, he eventually became an American citizen. The proposal for canonization began on December 20, 1976. A total of four proven miracles attributed to a saint must be completed before someone is declared a saint. Three miracles that were very profound were attributed to Neumann, so Pope Paul VI said there was no need to find a fourth miracle to declare Neumann a saint. * 1987: “Ben & Jerry” unveils its newest ice cream flavor, “Cherry Garcia,” with the support of Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia. * 2002: Hamid Karzai is sworn in as president of Afghanistan. Considered well educated, westernized and stylish, Karzai was often welcomed by foreign governments and made many Western friends.

Individuals with arthritis are often stuck between a rock and a hard place. Doctors want people to exercise to keep up the range of motion in affected joints. However, even some limited movements can cause pain and suffering to those with arthritis. Furthermore, individuals with arthritis may shy away from the activities they once enjoyed because the pain is simply too overwhelming. Instead of simply sitting on the couch watching television, there are a number of different things arthritis sufferers can do to pass the time and reconnect with past hobbies and interests. It might just take a little re-outfitting of the tools that are needed to participate. Gardening Gardening is a popular pastime for people of all ages. But the repetitive motions of digging and tilling as well as gripping a multitude of tools can take the joy out of the hobby. People with arthritis can make some changes. Raised garden beds or container gardening eliminates the stooping and bending associated with traditional gardening. With containers, individuals can place the containers on a counter or table and do all the work at a comfortable height.

Hobbies for arthritis sufferers

Container gardening is a hobby arthritis sufferers can enjoy. Choosing low-maintenance plants is another option. Plants that don’t require as much pruning or repotting are good for those with arthritis. Also, look for tools with larger grips and handles to be easier on arthritic hands.

Crafting Many people with arthritis find the fine-detail work they grew accustomed to is not very comfortable with arthritis. Instead, there are many other crafts that can be practical. Ceramics are one craft where the activity can also be the exercise. Using a pottery wheel or hand-molding doughs and other modeling media

can be a way to stretch and work the hands and fingers. Using paintbrushes equipped with wider grips can make painting possible. Mural painting is another option. Again, those with arthritis can choose tools with wide handles to make grasping easier. Large designs on walls or canvases will be easier to handle than smaller pieces. Cooking Cooking and baking is an art form that can be enjoyed by anyone. Furthermore, with ergonomic spoons, ladles and other kitchen tools, it has never been more convenient or less labor-intensive to be an accomplished home chef. Baking and pastry creation is one area where people can show off creative skills. For those who love to bake but have trouble kneading and working dough, food processors, bread machines and kitchen stand mixers can take the work out of those processes. Cooking is not only a rewarding hobby but also an activity that can benefit the household. Having arthritis doesn’t mean a person has to give up on the activities he or she enjoys. It merely involves a few tweaks that can still make these hobbies enjoyable.

By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.

Q. From a Montana reader: “This has intrigued me for years: If you could fire a bullet perfectly straight up and have it fall straight down, would it come to a complete stop before beginning its descent, or simply switch directions?” A. This intrigued Aristotle as well, who wondered about thrown stones long before bullets, says Yale physicist Steven Girvin. The up-velocity decreases steadily, passes through zero, then becomes negative as the stone starts to fall. Zero for how long? An instant, or of “infinitesimal” duration, meaning “smaller than any finite number you can think of.” If you say 0.00001 second, an instant is smaller; say 0.00000000000001 second and it’s smaller still. It will always be smaller than any number named, as you calculus initiates know. In other words, “the length of time the velocity remains zero is itself zero,” i.e., no longer than the bullet spends at any other speed. Remarkably, this moment of zero velocity is so “un-special” that someone watching all this happen from an elevator going upward at a constant velocity would see a different stopping moment than you would, though the duration of the two moments would both be the same - the thinnest possible slice of time, or no time at all.

$5.50 Per Week When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money. – Susan Heller One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. – Henry Miller Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving. – Lao Tzu Wandering reestablishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe. – Anatole France

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. – Seneca What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do—especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. – William Least Heat Moon To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change. – Charles Horton Cooley Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness. – Ray Bradbury


We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. – Hilaire Belloc Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. – Benjamin Disraeli
