HERBS AND SPICES

by Kathy Wolfe What’s in your cupboard? This week, Tidbits takes a look at the culinary and medicinal uses of the herbs and spices found in nearly everyone’s home. • The Egyptians were studying the use of herbs as far back as 3500 B.C., using them for medicine and in their religious rituals. Today, about 7,000 compounds used in medicine originate from plants. About 200 million pounds of herbs and spices are consumed in the U.S. annually. The most common are black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic, paprika, chili powder, oregano, celery seed, and parsley. • There’s a difference between herbs and spices. Generally, herbs are the leaves of a plant, while spices are taken from the roots, bark, or seeds. This means rosemary, thyme, and mint are herbs, and cinnamon, paprika, coriander, and nutmeg are spices. • Botanically, peppermint is known as Mentha piperita. It not only freshens your breath, it’s been shown that inhaling peppermint oil can relieve motion sickness and an upset stomach. Some clinical trials indicate its effectiveness in relief of irritable bowel syndrome and tension headaches. Peppermint oil can even repel annoying bugs! turn the page for more!

• Nutmeg is harvested from the seeds of the fruit of the large evergreen nutmeg tree, native to the West Indies. This tree grows to a height of about 60 feet, and yields both nutmeg and mace. The seeds are grated to produce nutmeg, while mace comes from the lacy threads that surround the seed. Nutmeg may spice up your desserts, but its medicinal uses are many. Ancient Chinese medicine called for using its oil for digestive ailments, relieving inflammation, and reducing joint pain. Nutmeg is a good source of Vitamin C, many B-complex vitamins, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, and zinc. Some claim it promotes a restful night’s sleep when steamed and inhaled. Nutmeg contains the same essential oil as cloves, eugenol, that can be used for toothache relief. • Sweet aromatic cloves are used in baking and flavoring meats such as ham and lamb, as well as serving as an anesthetic for a toothache. Eugenol oil can also reduce blood sugar in diabetics and help relieve indigestion. Naturopaths claim that rubbing a mixture of oil of cloves and mustard into aching joints and muscles will reduce pain. Some people say that drinking water in which a few cloves have been boiled will help relieve a cough. • Cinnamon, one of the oldest known spices, comes from the bark of a cinnamon tree, bark that must be processed immediately after harvesting, while it is still wet. Cinnamon was a gift fit for a king in ancient times, and in Rome, a pound of the spice was worth ten months’ wages. It’s been shown to help with indigestion and upset stomach. Diabetics will be happy to know that cinnamon seems to contribute to reduced blood glucose levels and increased insulin production. Some studies indicate that it promotes lower cholesterol and relief of arthritis pain. New Veterans Free Food Pantry 9- noon Tuesday & Thursday 319-862-2010 50 2nd Ave Bridge Coliseum

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR. JIM COYLE Let it Grow

This is a great time of year if you like watching finals of sporting events. Whether it is the Triple Crown, NBA, NHL, MBA, NFL, and other sporting venues, there is always those who don’t win. The recent Belmont Stakes race captured the hearts of many as we wanted so badly to see a Triple Crown winner. Here is the most important lesson in life; “All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should.” 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 Everything we go through in this life is to mature us and complete us for a greater work. 2 The brother of Jesus captured some very encouraging words for all of us. “ Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” James 1:2-4 Let it grow!!!!

• Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice and has been used in trade for more than 4,000 years. It comes from the dried threads of the saffron crocus plant, which grows to a height of 8 to 12 inches and bears only four flowers. One pound of dry saffron requires 50,000 to 75,000 flowers, with 40 hours of labor needed to pick 150,000 flowers. Retail prices for saffron can spike as high as $5,000 per pound. Some medical studies suggest that this spice has antioxidant and cancersuppressing properties and might also be helpful in treating depression. In the kitchen, it’s used in Indian and Pakistani sweet dishes and Italian risotto. It’s also used in religious rituals in India.

• Vanilla is second most expensive spice after saffron. It’s no wonder vanilla is an expensive commodity when you consider the labor required to process it. It comes from the pod of the only fruit-bearing orchid plant, with a waiting period of three years after being planted before the first flowers appear. The flower opens only one day a year, and each one is handpollinated in order to produce a pod. Those pods remain on the vine for another nine months and when harvested, have no flavor or fragrance. Those qualities develop during the extensive curing process, when the pods are treated with hot water before being placed in the sun for months. During this time, they shrink to about one-fifth of their original size. It’s another month or two of “resting” before the pods develop their distinctive aroma and taste. • Vanilla takes its name from the Spanish word Vaina, which translates “little pod.” Vanilla extract is made by finely chopping the beans and dripping alcohol on the pieces.

Studies indicate that capsaicin Escalators don’t break down… they just turn into stairs has anti-carcinogenic and anti-diabetic properties. Cayenne has been successful in treating arthritis, sore muscles, and digestive ailments, as well as improving blood circulation. • We usually think of oregano as a herb to flavor our tomato sauces and Italian dishes. That is the Mediterranean species of oregano, which is a member of the mint family. It grows in Greece, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco, and has a strong, robust flavor. However, there is another completely different variety, Mexican oregano, a relative of lemon verbena, which has more of a citrusy licorice taste. The USDA tells us that one tablespoon of fresh oregano has just as much antioxidant properties as an apple. • If you’re cooking Mexican food, coriander, cumin, and cilantro are essential. Coriander actually comes from the seeds of the cilantro plant. While fresh cilantro will offer a bolder flavor, coriander adds more of a subtle taste.

FAMOUS CANADIANS:

PETER JENNINGS

• Peter Jennings was one of the most trusted and respected news anchors in the history of television news. As the son of a noted Canadian Broadcasting Company journalist, Peter got his start in broadcasting at age 9, hosting his own radio program, “Peter’s People,” on a Toronto station. • Although a gifted broadcaster, Jennings was not a gifted student. He admitted that his failure to pass 10th grade was due to “pure boredom.” In an interview he remarked, “I loved girls, I loved comic books. I was pretty lazy.” He dropped out at age 17, and although he tried to attend Carleton University a few years later, in his words, he “lasted about 10 minutes.” • Jennings was anxious to follow his father into broadcasting, but took a job as a bank teller at the Royal Bank of Canada. He got a break in his early 20s when he landed a job hosting a Canadian music program called “Club Thirteen,” followed by a teen dance show similar to “American Bandstand” called “Saturday Date.” • At age 24, Jennings was given the co-anchor position of a Canadian late-night national news broadcast, ironically, in competition with his father’s network. At 25, he was the first Canadian journalist to arrive in Dallas after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. After two years as anchor, he moved to the States for a position with ABC News. The following year, he was the anchor opposite the time slots of news greats, CBS’s Walter Cronkite and NBC’s David Brinkley. • Jennings took on a new challenge two years later when he shifted to a job as a foreign correspondent. He set up ABC’s news bureau in Beirut, the first TV news bureau in the Middle East, where he remained for 7 years. After similar positions in Rome and London, he came back to the U.S. to co-anchor World News Tonight, where we saw his face for the next 27 years. At one time, 14 million people watched Jennings every night. His awards included 16 Emmys and two George Foster Peabody awards. • Jennings was present at nearly every historic event during his tenure, including not only the building of the Berlin Wall in the 1960s, but also its fall in 1989. He was one of the first journalists to report from Vietnam, and was on hand at the 1972 Munich Olympics when terrorists attacked Israeli athletes. We heard about the space shuttle Challenger disaster and the Gulf War from Jennings. During the September 11th attacks in 2001, Jennings was at his anchor desk for 17 straight hours. After the tragedy, claiming a “deeper sense of connection to the United States,” he began studying for the citizenship test, and in 2003, he obtained dual citizenship, U.S. and Canadian. • In April, 2005, Jennings announced to viewers that he had lung cancer and would immediately begin chemotherapy. Just four months later, he succumbed to the disease. • Jennings was devoted to his family and was well-known as a loyal friend who enjoyed entertaining and listening to jazz with friends at his home in the Hamptons. He offered these words of wisdom: “Always have a sense of humor about life – you’ll need it – but always be courteous to boot.”

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright who made the following sage observation: “Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions.” ● According to statisticians, about 200 people a year die while watching -- not playing -- football. ● Collective nouns are fascinating, especially when one kind of animal has multiple ones that can be used. Take ducks, for instance: A group of them can be called a flock, a badelynge, a brace, a plump, a sord or a waddling. If you see them on water you can call them a bunch, a paddling or a raft; and a group of ducks flying together is known variously as a skein, a string or a team. ● Noted industrialist John D. Rockefeller was the son of a notorious con man, William Avery Rockefeller. ● It takes about one minute for blood to make a complete circuit of your body. ● The 1950s TV show “The Adventures of Superman” starred George Reeves, and for the rest of his short life he was best known for that title role. After his untimely death at the age of 45, he was buried in the same suit he wore as Clark Kent on the show. ● Those who study such things say that more babies are born after the new moon and the full moon than at any other time of the month. Interestingly, more girls are born after the new moon, and more boys after the full moon. ● For one week in April of 1964, the top five songs on the Billboard chart were all by The Beatles. That also was the year that the band had a whopping 31 songs on the charts. c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Q: I have an enclosed front porch that has a moisture and mildew problem. Even on days that are just humid, not rainy, the porch smells musty and mildewy. There also is a carpet across the porch floor that stays damp. If I take up the carpet, will that cure the problem? -- Doreen in Cleveland A: Carpets retain moisture, so it could be a major contributor to the mildew smell, even if it’s an “indoor/outdoor” type carpet that dries quickly. But another important question is why so much moisture is getting into the enclosed porch area, and why it isn’t drying out quickly enough to prevent mildew. Unseen damage and deterioration are usually the biggest culprits in moisture problems anywhere within a home. You need to look from top to bottom for possible trouble spots. If the porch has an overhanging roof, look for damaged shingles or whether the overhang has pulled slightly away from the walls. Check windows for cracks and the frames for damaged or warping. Look for water stains below window frames and at any potential entry points, such as doors, roof eaves and wall corners. Outside, check the gutter system. Make sure rain gutters are in good repair and note where downspouts are placed and how far from the house they extend. Downspouts that drain next to the foundation can cause all sorts of moisture problems. Extending them is an inexpensive solution. Now it’s time to look underneath that carpet. Wear a filter mask to protect yourself from mold spores, and carefully pull back a corner of the carpet. Underneath, you may find plastic sheeting, an inexpensive moisture prevention method for front porches. The sheeting keeps water from damaging the porch floor, and weather-resistant carpet provides traction. It’s not an optimal solution, but the alternative involves replacing the flooring and improving the underlayment, and that can be expensive. Lift up that plastic sheeting as well, drawing both carpet and plastic back a foot or so, and check the floorboards. If they appear to be in good condition, that’s a good start. You also need to check underneath the porch to see what the flooring looks like from there. This may be tricky, depending on how your house is built. If the porch extends separately from the foundation, you (or a contractor) can likely shimmy into or shine a flashlight into the crawlspace to check the underside of the floorboards and the joists, and look and smell for mold. If the foundation extends under the porch, access the crawlspace or basement and check under the porch for potential water entry spots. Once you’ve located potential moisture trouble spots, work with a contractor to resolve these problems. Be sure to get estimates from more than one contractor before agreeing to any work. The faster you address the problem, the less expensive it may be to fix Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

NOW HERE’S A TIP By JoAnn Derson

● Going to the beach for your vacation? Here’s a handy hint to take great care of your swimsuit. (They get more expensive all the time!) Pack at least two suits and bring a box of baking soda. Soak suit for 15 minutes in a baking soda and water solution, then lay flat on a towel. Roll the towel up and wring lightly. Unroll and hang to dry. Rotate suits. -- JoAnn

● “This should be a life tip: Feel comfortable in your party clothes. You will be more confident and be a better conversationalist than if you are uncomfortable in very high heels or a tootight dress. Let your inner light shine! It took me 60 years of uncomfortable clothes for this grandma to figure it out.” -- F.L. in Oregon ● Use your Christmas light timers to set different lights to go on or off at certain times of the day while you are away on vacation. You can even use a timer on a radio, so it comes on sometimes too. The variation will make people think you are home. ● “If you read lots of online reviews before cementing your travel plans, make sure you read them with a critical eye. Some read like an advertisement -- for or against. Try to see if you can get recommendations from your friends and family too. Most of all, enjoy your time.” -- N.F. in Maryland ● Always keep a couple bottles of water and a roll of duct tape in your trunk. You never know when you will need these items, and they seem to be pretty handy when traveling.

● Fill a 2-liter soda bottle with water, then plunge the top into a potted plant for selfwatering while you are on vacation. Use smaller bottles for smaller pots.

● On June 19, 1917, during World War I, Britain’s King George V orders the British royal family to dispense with the use of German titles and surnames due to strong anti-German feeling within Britain. He changed the surname of his own family from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, to Windsor. ● On June 21, 1947, after an interim of seven years during World War II, the first post-war Mille Miglia (“Thousand Miles”) auto race is held in Brescia, Italy with 155 starters. The race on public roads had been delayed two years as Italy’s infrastructure had to be rebuilt. ● On June 16, 1961, President John F. Kennedy agrees to send 900 U.S. troops to train and supervise Vietnamese troops in combat. The number of U.S. personnel rose to 3,200 by the end of 1962 and 16,000 by the time of President Kennedy’s assassination in November 1963. ● On June 18, 1983, the space shuttle Challenger is launched on its second mission. Aboard the shuttle was Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman to travel into space. During the sixday mission, Ride, an astrophysicist from Stanford University, operated the shuttle’s robot arm, which she had helped design.

Senior News Line by Matilda Charles

New Gadgets Designed With Seniors in Mind Finally, manufacturers and retailers are paying attention to seniors! More and more of them are creating gadgets that will help us with small tasks every day. Here are a few I found online: ● Is it getting harder to put the key in your front door lock because the key is just too small to hold? AgingCare. com has a gizmo that makes using keys so much easier. The Easy Key Turner is a plastic key holder that more than doubles the size of the end of the key. ● The same thought has gone into the Lamp Switch Turner, available on the site above. Instead of a small round switch, this little device is in the shape of a bigger triangle, much easier to grip when you want to turn on a lamp. ● Wish your cane didn’t look so blah, so like everyone else’s? Cane Expressions has a beautiful variety of removable, decorative cane covers. Choose from shimmery or beaded fabrics. Coordinate outfits with denim, red hearts, camo, purple, polka dots, zebra or any number of other prints and colors. Go online to www.caneexpressions.com to see its selection, or call 310-387-4909. All are made in the USA. ● If the letters on your caller ID are getting smaller all the time, consider a talking caller ID. No more squinting at tiny letters. The machine will announce the number that’s calling. Consider this option the next time you shop for a phone. ● If you’re still driving, look for a steering-wheel knob. It clamps on the steering wheel and gives a larger surface to hold. To find more gadgets, go online and search for “seniors daily living aids.” Look for doorknob levers, jar and bottle openers, Neo Bird writing pens (easy to grip) and talking watches.

VOTE FOR ME! NOT THE OTHER GUY

Did you know that he did not vote 54% of the time. In fact he was not even around most of the time as he was in court arguing about big oil deals. He manage to get oil contracts that will make those oil rich countries more powerful then they already are. And did you know that when he did vote, he was in favor of taxing your first born child with big oil credits that will cost this country for the next million years. He also manage to get with his own initiatives the right to have pipelines go right under day-care centers and casinos. That other guy is against casinos. Vote for me as that is where all my backing is from. I will get casinos into every business, every home. In fact I have already created a bill that would allow for interstate gambling so that you can have slot machines in the trunk of your car. Just think about the tailgating fun you can have at Kinnick stadium!

VOTE FOR ME! NOT THE OTHER GUY

Circulation Verification Council (CVC) conducted a recent 2014 Political Survey. Here are results from their findings. 63% of respondents were female. 94.3% of respondents were registered to vote. 74% of respondents said they would prefer to receive voter information by free community papers rather then TV, Radio, Direct Mail and the least favorable was to be email. 42.1% said they were Independent 25.7% said they were Democrat 32.2% said they were Republican 68.5% of the respondents said their highest priority now is to cut spending and balance the budget. 95.3% of the respondents said that they vote in all local, county, state and national elections. 4% of respondents said that they trust the existing elected officials very much. It was a close split with: 35.9% saying that they somewhat trust them. 34.3% said that they somewhat distrust them. This is why it is more important to promote your own values than to run negative campaigns against the other politicians. If your in favor of a positive message, get into

Did you know that the other guy has served more time in San Quentin than any other living person has. In fact they named the prison cemetery after him as that is where most of his previous work has been sent to. He does not even have any political experience as I have been writing laws since I was first elected sixty two years ago. The only thing he is good at is to nod at his campaign strategist as to what gets done. Your best hope in life is that your name was not mentioned prior to his nod. He continues to run his campaign in favor or more casinos, why I’m in favor of them too. In fact I just ran another initiative through the chambers last week to increase taxing of casinos. He’s also in favor of unlimited gun rights. He actually has his lobbyists pushing for the right to carry concealed weapons in diapers as he wants all US citizens with a social security number to automatically be allowed to carry and conceal. He is not even an attorney, how can he ever claim to be able to decipher all the pork filler in the bills we write. He claims that with all his past legal problems, he knows the laws like the back of his hand. I challenge him to provide us with his tax return to prove that he is even a tax payer. We all know that I am since all my claimed earnings come from the Government since law school.

GARLIC

In keeping with our theme of spices, Tidbits now zeroes in on the culinary and medicinal benefits of garlic. • Garlic, or Allium sativum, is a member of the onion genus, along with shallots, leeks, and chives. A full-grown garlic plant is about 24 inches (60 cm) tall and yields between 8 and 20 bulbs. It’s one of the oldest cultivated food plants, and its use dates back over 7,000 years. Pictures of garlic have been found on ancient Egyptian tombs and the Greek physician Hippocrates promoted its therapeutic benefits for respiratory and digestion problems, low energy, and eliminating parasites. Olympic athletes in ancient Greece were fed garlic, probably to enhance their performance. • The list of the health benefits of garlic goes on and on. Research has shown the cardiovascular benefits of garlic, as well as a reduction in cholesterol levels. It seems to help regulate blood sugar levels and prevent complications of diabetes. It has antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, and was used as an antiseptic to prevent gangrene during World Wars I and II. In a study conducted by China’s Center for Disease Control, people who ate raw garlic twice a week had a 44% lower risk of developing lung cancer. Some naturopaths advocate its use for the prevention of prostate, breast, stomach, and colon cancers. • Of course, the downside of ingesting large quantities of garlic is halitosis – bad breath! – as well as sweat that has a pungent smell. This is cause by Allyl Methyl Sulfide, a sulfur-containing gas that is released when you eat garlic.

• Helsinki, Finland is home to Kynsilaukka, a restaurant that caters to garlic lovers. Even its name translates to “clove leek.” They serve all things garlic, including beer, ice cream, and cheesecake. In the U.S., San Francisco boasts “The Stinking Rose,” a restaurant where every menu item features garlic. No wonder their marketing slogan is “Follow your nose to the Stinking Rose.” • Garlic isn’t just for seasoning and medicinal benefits. Even the sticky juice found within the bulb cloves is useful as an adhesive in mending glass and porcelain. • If you don’t have fresh garlic for your recipes, garlic powder can be used, although it does have a different taste. If you do substitute the powder for the fresh, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder is the equivalent of one clove of fresh garlic. • Much of the U.S.’s garlic supply is produced in and around Gilroy, California, which has been dubbed “Garlic Capital of the world.” A single farm in the area produces nearly 25 million pounds (11,340,000 kg) annually. Every July, this community of 50,000 hosts the Gilroy Garlic Festival, a celebration that has raised almost $9 million for assorted local charities since its founding in 1979. • Although Gilroy calls itself the garlic capital, it’s nowhere near the world’s top producer. Over 77% of the world’s garlic is grown in China, about 23 billion pounds (10.4 billion kg) worth. India is a distant second with 4.1%, followed by South Korea at 2%. The U.S. produces just 1.6% of the world’s garlic, with some grown in every state except Alaska.

In fact, he’s a jovial guy who prides himself on running a family-friendly restaurant. Cranky Hank’s is actually named for Hazen’s dad, a former Marine who liked yelling — and pizza. The restaurant’s slogan, “Stop your Belly Achin’,” is exactly the sort of thing the elder Hazen would say, he says, and the grumpylooking man on Cranky Hank’s signs is a caricature of the real-life Hank, who died in 1992. The restaurant, in the lower level of the Lindale Mall, is clean and bright, with an open kitchen so customers can watch pizza makers — including Hazen — toss dough and pull pies out of a large, vintage pizza oven. He even had the ceiling raised so he could toss the dough.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, pizza-makers offer dough-throwing lessons to their younger patrons. There is also kids-only karaoke on Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. The pizza is “Quad Cities style,” meaning it’s the style of pizza you’ll find at Harris Pizza, Frank’s Pizzeria, Sluggers Pizza and other local spots in the Quad Cities area, says Hazen, who grew up in East Moline. It’s a little sweeter crust, a little spicier sauce and it’s also cut in strips, not wedges. The dough and sauce are both made in-house. Staff members also shred their own cheese and make their own sausage.

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.
