A Texan was standing admiring the beauty of Niagara Falls when a New Yorker standing next to him said sarcastically, “I bet you don’t have anything like this in Texas!” “No,” said the Texan, “but we’ve got plumbers who could fix it!”

by Janet Spencer More than 168,000 cubic meters of water go over Niagara Falls every minute during peak hours. It has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with a vertical drop of more than 165 feet. Come with Tidbits as we remember daredevils and fools who have gone over the falls. OVER A BARREL • Annie Edson Taylor was the first person ever to go over Niagara in a barrel. A widowed and unemployed schoolteacher, she was 63 years old in 1901 when she pulled off the stunt on her birthday. She was strapped into a harness inside an oak wine barrel padded with cushions. A bicycle pump was used to increase the air pressure inside the barrel after she climbed in. Then she was towed into the river above the falls. After the plunge, she spent 17 minutes bobbing around before assistants were able to snag the barrel and pull her to shore. Emerging dazed but unhurt, she said, “No one ought ever do that again.” She was incoherent for several days afterwards. Alas, the fame and fortune she was hoping for eluded her – perhaps because she was neither young nor beautiful – and she spent the next 20 years working as a Niagara street vendor, selling photos of herself with her barrel for a penny. She died, destitute and unknown, 20 years later. (continued next page)

• Circus stuntman Bobby Leach went over the falls in a steel barrel in 1911, surviving with minor injuries. While on tour with his famous barrel in New Zealand in 1925, he slipped on an orange peel on a street and fell. He broke his leg, which later had to be amputated, leading to gangrene, which killed him. • On the 4th of July in 1928, Mr. Jean Lussier survived the trip not in a barrel but in a 6-foot rubber ball lined with rubber tubes and filled with oxygen. The tubes had valves that could be released, providing oxygen should he become trapped behind the falls. He was the first person to take the trip in an inflatable device instead of the more traditional wooden barrels or steel drums. After bobbing about at the bottom of the falls for an hour, he was pulled to shore and emerged unharmed in front of an audience of over 100,000. Afterwards he sold small souvenir pieces of the inner tubes for fifty cents each. When he ran out of authentic pieces, he peddled rubber purchased from a nearby tire store. • 46-year-old Greek chef George Strathakis went over in 1930 to generate publicity for his book entitled The Mysterious Veil of Humanity Through the Ages, which was a rambling incoherent treatise. His barrel was trapped behind the falls for over 14 hours before it finally broke loose. Strathakis, with only enough oxygen for several hours, suffocated. However, his pet turtle named Sonny Boy, reputed to be 105 years old and taken along for good luck, survived. • Nathan Boya made the trip in 1961 in a steel sphere covered by six layers of rubber, which he called the “Plunge-o-Sphere.” He included 13 canisters of oxygen on the advice of Jean Lussier. He emerged unhurt to find the police waiting for him. He was fined $100 – the minimum sentence for violating the Niagara Parks Act – and he had to pay court costs of $13.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle

My Heart Condition If not detected in time, heart disease will kill me physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Solomon wrote; “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Proverbs 4:3. What are my thoughts anchored in? Am I constantly comparing, resenting, and/or envious? Am I easily angered? Am I stressed out 24 and 7? Am I positive or negative in speaking to or about others? Getting my heart right is critical for survival. If the water in my well is polluted it will make me sick. If I keep drinking it will kill me. “Create a pure heart in me, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in me.” Psalm 51:10 I must get to the heart of my problem which is the problem of my heart. Here are three great words for me to coat my heart with immediately: pure, new, and loyal. www.pastoralcarecentercr.com

OVER A BARREL cont’d • Karel Soucek became the first Canadian to survive the plunge. In 1984 he went over in a cylindrical barrel with fiberglass moldings, liquid foam insulation, a two-way radio, and a snorkel for breathing. The fall took 3.2 seconds and the force of the fall snapped off his radio antennae, leaving him without communication. He was trapped in dangerous waters for 45 minutes before being pulled free. He suffered only minor injuries. He was fined $500. Six months later he was re-creating the spectacle at the Houston Astrodome in front of 45,000 spectators. His barrel was lifted to the top of the astrodome by a crane and released above a water tank only ten feet wide and ten feet deep. It hit the edge of the tank and he was killed. He was buried at the Niagara Falls cemetery. Of all the people who have gone over the falls seeking fame and fortune, he came the closest to achieving it. He would have earned a quarter million dollars through public appearance contracts in the year following the feat if he hadn’t died in Houston. • Dave Munday, a mechanic and skydiving instructor from Ontario, has dared the falls on several occasions. In 1985 a police officer witnessed him enter the water and immediately radioed the Hydro Control Dam upstream. They cut the water flow of the Niagara River and the water level dropped five feet in three minutes. The barrel got stuck in shallow water a mile above the rim of the falls. But Dave Munday was persistent. Later that year he tried again, this time launching himself scant yards above the falls, and made the trip successfully in an aluminum barrel equipped with video and radio equipment. In another attempt in 1990, his barrel got stuck on rocks at the very brink of the falls and he had to be rescued by a cable on a crane. In September of 1993 he tried again, this time in a converted diving bell. At age 56, became the first person to go over the falls twice.

Medical Alert for Seniors Medical Alert Monitoring

• A Rhode Island bartender named Steven Trotter wrapped two plastic pickle barrels in inner tubes and a tarp and went over the falls in 1985. At the age of 22, he became the youngest person ever to make the trip. He was fined over $5,000 for the stunt, but he more than made up for that with his talk show fees. On the tenth anniversary of the stunt, he returned with a woman named Lori Martin and they became the first co-ed couple to go over together. This time instead of pickle barrels, Trotter used hot water tanks welded together, covered with Kevlar, and equipped with oxygen tanks – a contraption that weighed 900 lbs. and is reputed to have cost some $19,000. The barrel became trapped in a rock crevice at the base of the waterfall. Members of the fire department and the police department were able to reach the barrel and pop the hatch, releasing the two unharmed occupants. The barrel remained lodged in place for 9 days before being removed by a crane. Trotter later returned to reclaim the barrel, but he had to pay the costs of the rescue before they handed it over. • In 1989, Peter DeBernardi and Geoffrey Petkovich, Canadian residents of Niagara Falls, were the first people to go over the falls as a team, face to face in the same ten-foot steel barrel. They had known each other only a couple of months. DeBernardi’s original partner had chickened out and Petkovich took his place. The steel-plated barrel was equipped with oxygen, twoway radio equipment, and two plexiglass windows. It was painted with the slogan, “Don’t put yourself on the edge – Drugs Kill.” The team suffered only minor injuries and refused treatment. Petkovich, who had been

drinking, emerged wearing only a necktie and cowboy boots. They were promptly arrested by the Niagara Parks Police and charged with infractions.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel ● On July 14, 1789, Parisian revolutionaries and mutinous troops storm and dismantle the Bastille, a royal fortress built in 1370 that had come to symbolize the tyranny of the Bourbon monarchs. This dramatic action signaled the beginning of the French Revolution, a decade of terror in which King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette were executed. ● On July 12, 1861, special commissioner Albert Pike completes treaties with the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes, giving the new Confederate States of America several allies in Indian Territory. Many of these tribes had been expelled from the Southern states in the 1830s and 1840s, but still chose to ally themselves with those states during the Civil War. ● On July 8, 1918, author Ernest Hemingway is severely wounded while carrying a companion to safety on the Austro-Italian front during World War I. Hemingway, working as a Red Cross ambulance driver, was decorated for his heroism.

Now that we’re fast approaching the hottest part of summer, it’s even more important to take steps to guard against becoming overheated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a special report on seniors and the heat. It has suggestions that make sense -- especially since we seniors are slower to sense changes in temperature. That means we can become overheated before we realize it. Here are some suggestions: --Drink more water than usual, and don’t wait until you’re actually thirsty before having a drink. By then you’re actually overdue for water. Call your doctor’s nurse to ask how much water you should be drinking, and make a chart to be sure you get as much as you should. --Don’t cook with the stove or oven. It makes the house hotter. --Wear light-colored, lightweight, loose clothing. --Cool down with cool showers or baths. --Avoid alcohol or drinks with lots of sugar. --Check the news for heat alerts. In some cases, cooling stations might be opened in your area, such as in schools. Or call the health department and ask if there are air-conditioned shelters near you. Libraries, movies and malls are good places to go during the heat of the day. --Keep an eye on friends and family, and ask that they do the same for you. --While fans are helpful at lower temperatures, they won’t help in extremely hot weather, and only blow the hot air around. --Watch for heat-related symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting, headaches or muscle cramps. Look for heavy sweating, clammy skin, weakness or fainting, which is heat exhaustion. Those are medical emergencies. For more information, go online to www. cdc.gov/extremeheat/seniors.html and www.cdc.gov/extremeheat/warning. html.

December 22– January 19

Diplomacy is required to settle a dispute. Don’t go in without it, Capricorn. Less is more when it comes to the décor at home. Tone it down a bit.

January 20– February 18

A trip out of town sheds new light on an old problem. You have all of the pieces of the puzzle. You just need to put them together, Aquarius.

February 19– March 20

Your record keeping is out of control, Pisces. You don’t need to keep every scrap of paper. Curb your efforts in order to focus on what’s really important.

March 21– April 19

Rise and fall, Aries. It’s inevitable, so don’t let the roller coaster ride get to you this week. Enjoy the ride, and next week will be better. A memo piques curiosity.

April 20– May 20

You’re definitely a goalsetter, and this week, you will reach several, thanks to a new addition. Enjoy the accolades, Taurus. A health issue improves.

May 21– June 21 Greener efforts at home make a big impact on your bottom line as well as on Mother Earth. Spread the word, Gemini, and keep the momentum going.

June 22– July 22

Workspaces start to look tired and old. Spruce them up, and watch the creativity grow, Cancer. A romantic gesture is reciprocated tenfold.

July 23– August 22 Lucky Leo. The tide turns in your favor, and you experience much success at home and at work. A relative poses an intriguing question.

August 23– September 22 Been there, done that, Virgo. Time to break out of the box! A fitness goal is reached. A dietary goal, on the other hand, could use some work.

September 23– October 22

Cheer up, Libra. Some things are just not meant to be. An invitation takes you by surprise—go! You’ll have more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

October 23– November 21

Money woes come to an end with a little budget crunching and some extra cash. Clear your schedule for a mini getaway, Scorpio. An email pushes the envelope.

November 22– December 21

Shoot, Sagittarius. You’re a generous soul for sure, but you don’t have to help everyone who crosses your path. Learn to say no, especially to a friend who keeps asking.

• At that point, going over Niagara Falls in a barrel had not yet been done. However, plenty of people had crossed the waterfall on tightropes or swum the rapids below the falls. A barrel maker named Carlisle Graham rocketed to fame by building his own barrel in which he successfully negotiated the rapids below the falls. The stunt resulted in so much publicity that he repeated the feat four more times. He nearly died on his fifth trip on July 14, 1901, when the barrel got caught in the whirlpool downstream from the falls. By the time he made it to shore, he was half dead from suffocation. • By now, negotiating the rapids in a barrel had become passé, and Carlisle needed something better to regain the spotlight. His opportunity arose when Maud Willard approached him, saying she wanted to be the first woman to float the rapids of Niagara using one of Carlisle’s barrels. Carlisle decided that to get his share of the publicity, he would seal Maud in the barrel, and after it had negotiated the rapids, he would jump in the river and swim alongside it all the way to Lewiston, several miles downstream.

• They chose the date September 7, 1901 for two reasons. First, the Pan-American Exposition being held nearby in Buffalo, New York, was bringing record numbers of tourists to Niagara. Second, President William McKinley was scheduled to visit the Expo on that day, guaranteeing record crowds. Carlisle arranged for movie cameras to film the entire stunt. • When September 7th arrived, things started to go wrong. First, Leon Czolgosz assassinated President McKinley that day, which drew attention away from Maud and Carlisle’s stunt. Second, Maud decided her pet dog, a fox terrier, would ride along with her in the barrel. Little did she realize that this would turn out to be a fatal mistake. • Still, things proceeded as planned. Maud crawled into the barrel. With her dog in her lap, the barrel was sealed, except for a single hole through which she could get fresh air. A boat towed it into the river. A film crew was positioned to capture the event on film. • But then the barrel got caught in the grip of the giant whirlpool. Carlisle waited for the whirlpool to release the barrel from its grip so that he could join it in the water and proceed downstream to Lewiston as planned. When an hour went by with the barrel still floating helplessly, and with dusk quickly approaching, Carlisle decided to go ahead with his swim without Maud and her barrel. The film crew followed him downriver. • Hours later, Carlisle triumphantly climbed out of the Niagara River at Lewiston. When he returned to the whirlpool to check on Maud’s progress, he was dismayed to find the barrel still trapped in the current. It was 9:30pm by the time the barrel came close enough to shore to be hauled out of the water. By then, Maud and her little dog had been in the water for more than five hours. • When the lid was removed, Maud’s dog jumped out unhurt. However, Maud Willard was not so lucky. All efforts to revive her were in vain. The barrel had only one air hole. It was believed that her pet dog stuck his nose out the hole, depriving her of oxygen and contributing to her death by suffocation. Maud’s mother died of the shock a few days later, and they were buried side by side.

• Maud Willard was born in Canton, Ohio around 1875. She became a dance hall actress but longed for more. Money was tight and she wanted to buy a home for her aging mother. She decided she needed a big dose of fame to put her on the path to riches. There was only one way to do that: Niagara Falls.

Summer Compost Heap STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● You might think of Uncle Sam as a fictional character, but he’s actually based in fact. The original Uncle Sam was one Samuel Wilson, born in Massachusetts in 1766. When he was 14 years old, he joined the army to fight in the American Revolution. Once the war was over, he moved to Troy, N.Y., started working in the meat-packing industry, and became known locally as “Uncle Sam” due to his jovial manner and ethical business practices. During the War of 1812, Sam won a contract to provide meat to troops stationed nearby. To keep track of which crates of meat were destined for the troops, he stamped “U.S.” on them, even though that abbreviation for United States was not yet in common use. When his packing plant was inspected in October of 1812, a government inspector asked a nearby worker what “U.S.” stood for. Unsure of the abbreviation himself, the worker replied that it must stand for the name of the owner, Uncle Sam. Though the answer was in error, it took hold, and soldiers soon began calling military rations “bounty of Uncle Sam.” ● It was French Enlightenment writer Voltaire who made the following sage observation: “Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.” (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
