of Linn County The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read

Local Weekly Readers!



by Janet Spencer The average annual consumption of turkey has increased from 8.3 pounds in 1975 to 18.5 pounds today. Come along with Tidbits as we talk turkey! TASTY TURKEY • Turkey meat is higher in protein and lower in fat and calories than many other meats, averaging 26 percent protein and 11 percent fat. It has 25 percent less fat than roast beef, and 46 percent less than pork loin. Skin accounts for six percent of the bird’s weight. The highest concentrations of fat are found in the skin and the pan drippings, which is why you should avoid both. TURKEY FACTS • The size of an average turkey breast has increased 22 percent since 1979. • A typical turkey will consume 110,000 calories in its lifetime. • It takes 3 lbs of feed to produce one pound of turkey, but it takes 7 lbs of feed to produce one pound of beef. • A typical 15-pound bird will have 70 percent white meat and 30 percent dark meat. • The first meal eaten on the moon by Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin in 1969 consisted of a foil packet full of turkey with trimmings.

Helping Hand

TURKEY QUESTIONS ANSWERED • You go to buy a turkey, and wonder how big a bird you should get. An 11 lb. turkey will yield 5 to 6 lbs. of meat. The bigger the bird, the greater the ratio of meat to bones, so the cheaper the serving. You wonder if it would be more economical to get a turkey breast, roast, or roll. Whole turkeys are cheaper per serving. Sometimes turkeys are so cheap that you wonder if you should stock up. A frozen turkey will keep for up to a year if stored at zero degrees . You wonder if you should get a self-basting bird. According to taste tests, there is no reason to choose a selfbasting bird over one that is not selfbasted. Basted birds have more salt. You wonder how long it will take to thaw. It should be thawed in the fridge for 24 hours for each 5 lbs. of weight. You debate between homemade or Stove-Top. Stuff the bird at the very last minute before cooking to cut down on bacteria, or cook it unstuffed. SMOKED TURKEY

• To celebrate the wealth of turkey farms in the area, the town of Frazee, Minnesota erected a gigantic turkey statue. Standing 22 feet tall, it was billed as the world’s largest turkey. On July 1, 1998, city workers wanted to spiff up Big Tom (as he was called) in preparation for the annual Turkey Days Festival. However, they decided to clean the fiberglass and paper maché statue with blow torches. Big Tom caught fire and burned to the ground. But civic pride kicked in and by September, another equally impressive Big Tom was installed in its place. WHITE vs DARK

• Myoglobin is the dark-colored protein that stores oxygen in muscles of some animals, just like hemoglobin stores oxygen in red blood cells. The oxygen stored by myoglobin is used for power to drive muscles, and is present in large amounts in muscles that do a lot of work, such as the legs. Muscles that do little work, such as the breast, have less myoglobin.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle “Thankfulness” The Perfect Cure for Venom Thanksgiving week is my favorite week of the year as we purpose in our hearts to be grateful. We have all been bitten throughout life with poisonous venom. The poisonous venom of a snake bite causes blood to clot and can be fatal if not removed quickly. The venom of pain and hurt in relationships can cause the same fatal clots between people if not dealt with. The perfect cure for venom is a grateful heart. If we can learn to fill our veins with gratitude there is no room for poison because we always become a better person through our trials and adversities. Forgive, Forget, and move Forward. Studies have proved that gratitude promotes psychological well-being, healthy living, and pro-social or moral behavior. Studies have also shown that there are higher levels of positive mood and lower levels of negative mood. “So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful.” Colossians 3:15

• Besides the fleshy wattle that hangs below a turkey’s chin, a male turkey also has a fleshy appendage that hangs over its beak called a snood. The snood indicates virility and stretches to twice its length during the macho strutting preceding mating. The ladies prefer a long snood. The snood also plays an important role in the rivalry between males. Males will access the length of a rival’s snood before engaging in battle. One researcher wanted to find out just how important the snood is. He constructed two turkey decoys and placed them three feet apart in a small arena. Each of the decoys stood next to a pile of birdseed. The decoys were identical except that one had a large snood and the other’s snood was small. One at a time, the researcher placed 28 young male turkeys into the yard and waited to see what would happen. Only four of the 28 turkeys took birdseed from the pile in front of the decoy with a huge snood, while 17 stole seed from the decoy with the smaller snood. Seven of the real turkeys stole birdseed from both decoys. The researcher theorized that the length of the snood may be determined by the bird’s testosterone level. WILD vs DOMESTIC

• One difference between wild and domestic turkeys is that the domestic variety is unable to fly, whereas wild birds are extremely good fliers. They need no runway for takeoff, can climb vertically, are capable of attaining speeds of 40 m.p.h. in the air, and can glide for a mile without fluttering a wing.

TURKEY HISTORY • Turkeys originated in Central and North America. Archeologists have found turkey fossils over 10 million years old. They’re the only breed of poultry native to the Western Hemisphere. There are two species of wild turkey: the Yucatan turkey inhabits Central America, and the North American turkey lives in the U.S.

• No one is sure where the word “turkey” came from. Some claim that when Columbus saw them, he thought they were related to the peacock. Because he thought he was in India, and because the word for peacock in India is “tuka,” he named them thusly. Others say that it got its name because it was imported through the country of Turkey. Still others swear it was because the bird’s head resembles the helmet of Turkish soldiers. Some think it’s because the call of the bird sounds like “turk-turk-turk.”

Over a million birds per year are raised there. • One of the heaviest turkeys ever raised weighed 86 pounds dressed out, which is about the size of a large German shepherd dog. It won the annual Heaviest Turkey competition in London in 1989.

• On the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, dodo birds lived under the calvaria tree. The tree’s seeds were unable to sprout until they had been ground down by the dodo’s digestive tract. The dodo had no natural enemies and therefore had developed no defenses. When man came accompanied by rats, dogs, and guns, the dodo died off, and it looked like the calvaria tree was soon to follow. At one point there were only 13 of the trees left in the world, some of them more than 300 years old. Then a professor from Wisconsin fed the seeds to turkeys, whose gizzards did the job that the dodo used to do. Just in the nick of time, the calvaria tree was saved from the dodo’s fate.

November 26th 2013

December 22– January 19

Pace yourself, Capricorn. The holiday season is just getting underway. Give too much of yourself now, and you won’t have any to give later.

January 20– February 18

True to form, you’re on top of your game, at home and at work. There is nothing you cannot do this week, Aquarius. A web of deceit begins to unravel.

February 19– March 20

Shape up, or ship out, Pisces. There are many others waiting in the wings, so if your heart is not in it, move aside. Hope blooms at home.

March 21– April 19

Duty calls, Aries. Heed it and give it your all. You will reap more rewards than you know. A task at home must be divided and conquered.

April 20– May 20

Party invites arrive by the handful. Choose the best and leave the rest, Taurus. Financial objectives are met, and you have some to spare.

May 21– June 21 The gift list grows. You better get shopping, Gemini. Start someplace you’ve never been. Décor needs require some thinking out-side of the box.

June 22– July 22

Nothing is etched in stone, Cancer. If you need to make some changes, then do so. Your friends will understand. A financial endeavor pans out.

July 23– August 22 Dreams grow, but resources stay in short supply. No need to worry, Leo. Things will eventually equal out. A deadline is extended just in time.

August 23– September 22 A problem festers. Leave it be, Virgo. It is not your problem to fix. A major renovation at home tests patience but ends well. Invites arrive by the handful.

September 23– October 22

The secret is out, and you are free to speak about the matter. Be open but tactful, Libra. Opportunity rarely knocks more than once. Don’t miss out.

October 23– November 21

You’re not much of a risk-taker, but an offer this week is too good to pass up. Go for it, Scorpio. It’s yours for the taking. A party date is near.

November 22– December 21

Fancy that, Sagittarius. Someone is in dire need, and you come to their rescue. Be careful that you don’t make a habit of it. A card bears good news.

• Annie Jump Cannon was born in 1863 to Elizabeth Jump and Wilson Lee Cannon. Growing up in Delaware, her mother taught her the names of all the constellations in the sky, imbuing her with a lifelong interest in astronomy. Annie excelled in school and was particularly adept at mathematics. • In 1880 she enrolled in Wellesley College in Massachusetts, one of the top schools for women in a day and age when women rarely attended college. Here, a bout with scarlet fever left her nearly deaf, a handicap that barely slowed her pace. • After graduating with a degree in physics in 1884, she returned home to Delaware, where she grew bored. When her mother died in 1894, she knew it was time for a change. She wrote to her former professor at Wellesley to see if there was a job opening at the school. The professor hired her to be an assistant, and the job allowed Annie to take graduate courses at the college. • A new course in astronomy caught her attention, as did a class in spectroscopy, where she learned the science behind the dispersion of light. She was also fanatically interested in photography. Later she enrolled at Radcliffe Women’s College at Harvard in order to gain access to the Harvard College Observatory. There she caught the attention of noted astronomy Edward Pickering. • Pickering hired Annie to be his assistant at the observatory. His project was to map, define, and catalog every possible star in the sky. He paid Annie and a bevy of other astronomically inclined women a wage of 25 cents per hour for their labor, at a time when the secretaries at the college were earning up to a dollar per hour. Soon the work got bogged down because the system used to classify stars was bulky, difficult, and complex.

• Annie went to work on the problem, and soon devised a simpler system of star classification based on stellar temperatures. The system, called the Harvard Classification Scheme, was so successful that it was adopted by the International Astronomical Union in 1922 as the official system for stellar classification. It is still being used today.

• Annie’s career in astronomy spanned more than forty years. She received a doctorate of astronomy, became the curator of the Harvard Observatory, and was appointed as an official Harvard astronomer. Harvard officials also named her Curator of Astronomical Photographs. She was the first woman ever to receive an honorary degree from Oxford, and the first woman ever elected an officer of the American Astronomical Society. In addition, she received the prestigious Henry Draper Medal from the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors available to any astronomy. Only one other woman has ever won it.

Valid driver’s license,

• The only time her deafness got in the way of her career was when she was nominated for membership in the National Academy of Sciences, but not elected, after a noted biologist made an issue of her deafness. • Over the course of nearly half a century, she classified and cataloged around a quarter of a million stars, causing Time magazine to label her “Census Taker of the Sky.” She also discovered about 300 new stars. In 1923 she was voted one of the twelve greatest living American women by the League of Women Voters. • She died in 1941, having lived long enough to see women win a grudging place in the world of science. In her honor the American Association of University Women presents the Annie J. Cannon Award each year to a woman beginning her astronomical career.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel ● On Nov. 30, 1886, the Folies Bergere in Paris introduces an elaborate revue featuring women in sensational costumes. The highly popular “Place aux Jeunes” established the Folies as the premier nightspot in Paris. The Folies followed the Parisian taste for striptease and quickly gained a reputation for its spectacular nude shows. ● On Dec. 1, 1913, Henry Ford installs the first moving assembly line for the mass production of an entire automobile. His innovation reduced the time it took to build a car from more than 12 hours to 2 1/2 hours. ● On Nov. 28, 1925, the “Grand Ole Opry,” one of the longest-lived and most popular showcases for country music, begins broadcasting live from Nashville, Tenn. The showcase was originally named the “Barn Dance.” ) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Winter Workouts at Home

I recently purchased a small, inexpensive manual treadmill. Unlike the electric ones, this one doesn’t need to be within cord distance of a wall plug, and it’s not so heavy that I can’t move it. It goes at the speed I set with my own legs. And it didn’t cost the many hundreds of dollars that an electric treadmill does. If you’re in good health (and your doctor approves), with only a few pieces of equipment, you can get in mild workouts this winter without having to go to the gym when it’s cold or wet outside. Consider acquiring a few of these: --Hand weights: Start small, unless you’ve already been working out at the gym on a regular basis. A 3-pound or 5-pound weight might be all you need to get started. --”For seniors” workout videos: If you’re not sure about a treadmill, look for a workout video that emphasizes walking in place. --If you have room, think about a sitdown pedaler like a recumbent bicycle instead of a treadmill. They even make these with only the pedal part, which you use while sitting in a chair. Some of them can even be used for your arms, with the peddler put on a chair in front of you. --Squeeze balls for hand and finger strength. --Wrist or ankle weights. (Hint: get the kind with the removable weights so you can adjust for your own comfort.) Shop first at Goodwill or the Salvation Army, or local ads in your area. Next look in the big-box stores to fill in what you can’t find elsewhere. Search online for “seniors home-workout equipment” for ideas, but try to buy in person locally.

THIS IS A HAMMER By Samantha Mazzotta

DIY Furnace Maintenance Q: Can I do some furnace maintenance myself? I don’t want to pay for a contractor to come every year just to tell me the furnace is fine. -- Clive T., Minneapolis

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● 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. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

A: While it’s important to have a heating professional check your system at the start of fall or winter, you can handle some maintenance tasks in between that will keep your system in good shape and reduce the number of more expensive repairs you may need later. First, make sure the air filter is changed monthly during heating season. To improve air intake further, vacuum away dust from the outer cabinet door. Vacuum the air registers in the house to remove dust and make sure nothing is blocking them, like furniture or dropped items. Within the unit, clean the blower or fan inside by turning off the heating system completely. Access the fan compartment and clean either the blower or fan blades (depending on your system) with a bottle brush. Using a vacuum with a hose attachment makes picking up the dust bunnies easier. Beyond the heating unit, visually inspect the air ducts and make sure they’re in good shape, not damaged or loose. If a duct is loose where two of them meet, reattach snugly using sheet metal screws. Seal the seam with aluminized tape, pressing out air bubbles, so that air flows smoothly through the duct without leaking.

• The first voyage by the Clermont was met by the public with suspicion. Many referred to the boat as “Fulton’s Folly” due to its unusually long length and the smoke and fire associated with the vessel’s newfangled steam engine. Many thought it would blow up or sink on its first voyage; they were wrong! In fact, because Fulton wisely paid attention to passenger comfort, the Clermont became a very profitable vessel for transporting passengers to destinations on the Hudson River.

HOME TIP: To add warmth and humidity to your home in winter, leave water in the tub after a bath until it has completely cooled, then drain.
