by Patricia L. Cook Eggs are a big seller all year long as one of the most popular breakfast foods, an essential ingredient for baking and more. But at Easter, they are at the top of the grocery list, the star of the show! • Eggs are rich in nutrients, containing almost every vitamin and mineral needed by humans. The protein of eggs is the standard by which other protein sources are compared. Large eggs contain approximately 6 grams of protein and 4.5 grams of fat, with about half of the fat being the healthier mono-unsaturated variety. Eggs only contain about 70 calories each.

303 8th Ave S.E.

• While once vilified as being unhealthy and the cause of heart attacks because of their high cholesterol, the egg’s reputation has recently been redeemed. More doctors and nutritionists are backing away from the idea that eggs should be avoided. Eggs have so many good health benefits that studies now say most people are fine eating an egg a day. • To be sure, medical professionals are not recommending a three-egg omelet with sausage or bacon every day. If cholesterol is a concern, egg whites are fine since the yolk contains all of the cholesterol in an egg. The American Heart Association amended its egg-eating guidelines recently to say there is, “no longer a specific recommendation on the number of egg yolks a person may consume in a week.” turn the page for more!

CRACKS SOME EGGS (continued): • Not only does the yolk contain cholesterol, it also contains the vitamins and minerals that make it a nutritional powerhouse. Egg yolks are one of the few foods with naturally occurring vitamin D. Hard-boiled eggs, like those decorated, hidden and hunted at Easter, provide about 17 grams of protein. Egg whites are an excellent source of low-fat protein. • Eggs are also a good source of choline, which has been shown to help preserve memory, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, which may help prevent vision loss. Nutritionists say that eggs can help with weight management, eye health, muscle strength, brain functions and are valuable for healthy pregnancies. • Easter eggs and the Easter bunny are considered symbols of new life and rebirth. Ancient cultures like the Persians, Hindus and Egyptians believed the world started as a large egg. • The new life symbolism was probably the association that made way for the Easter Bunny. Rabbits, like eggs, have always been associated with birth and fertility.

• The legend of the Easter Bunny had its start in Germany. The story goes that a poor woman living in Germany decorated eggs to hide and be hunted as entertainment for her children. As soon as the eggs were found by the children, a large bunny rabbit was seen hopping away! Many stories have been written about the bunny ever since, and children in many places around the world look forward to egg hunts and egg and bunny-shaped candies around Easter. • Many egg hunts now use plastic eggs, often filled with candy or toys. Real eggs, if they are used for hunts, need to be handled carefully.

Comfort Care Inc. Proudly Presents

• The Egg Safety Center recommends that, “Hardcooked eggs should be refrigerated within two hours of cooking and used within one week.” Another food authority, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), says Easter eggs are safe to eat after a hunt if you follow some basic guidelines: “Use food-safe coloring to dye the eggs and refrigerate them within two hours of boiling them.” • Since most Easter egg hunts take more than two hours from hiding to finding to eating, it is usually best to use the plastic variety. • Other information from the USDA says that boiling an egg removes a naturally occurring protective coating on egg shells that then leaves the shells vulnerable to bacteria. If any eggs are cracked, they are very susceptible to bacteria as well and should be discarded.

RAGEGRAFIX PROUDLY PRESENTS

• The President and First Lady host the White House Easter Egg Roll every year on the Monday after Easter. The Easter Egg Roll activities were started in the mid-1800s and were originally held at the U.S. Capitol grounds. After years of wear and tear to the lawn, Congress passed a law in 1876 forbidding the Capitol grounds from being used as a children’s playground.

Spring Air & Hotel Pacckages Ulltimate Esscapes Traavel

• In 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes heard of the law, he issued an official order that any children who showed up at the Capitol grounds for an egg roll should be sent to the White House. Since that time, successive Presidents have continued the tradition, with the event held on the south lawn of the White House. It has only been cancelled a few times because of bad weather and during World Wars I and II. During the war years, egg rollers still congregated, some at the Washington Monument, the National Zoo and even at the Capitol grounds. (Remember, that was forbidden by law!)

art, where eggs are decorated using beeswax in a wax resist method, is a practice that has been around for thousands of years in Ukraine. Over 10,000 pysanky are displayed in the egg-shaped Pysanka Museum that opened in September 2000 in Kolomyia, Ukraine. • Canada, specifically Vegreville, Alberta, is home to the world’s largest pysanka. The area has many Ukrainian immigrants, and the pysanka was chosen as a symbol to honor the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in their centennial year of 1975. • While the Vegreville pysanka is the world’s largest inedible Easter egg, there have been a number of large edible chocolate eggs in recent years. Vying for recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR), impressive chocolate eggs usually make their debuts at shopping centers. A 14,197-pound, 12-ounce chocolate Easter egg was on display at a shopping center in Sao Jose, Santa Cararina, Brazil on April 3, 2010. • Last year, that one was beaten out for the title by an even larger egg displayed at a shopping center in Cortenuova, Italy. According to GWR, it weighed an impressive 15,873 pounds. Now that is a lot of chocolate! Politicians sure know how to write stupid and frivolous laws. Good thing for the ability to repeal laws. Here is one law that troubled some folks in Portland Oregon. It's against the law for a wedding ceremony to be performed at a skating rink. (Repealed in 1989)

FAMOUS LANDMARKS:

NIAGARA FALLS

Niagara Falls is actually three waterfalls that occur on the Niagara River shared by Canada and the United States. • Niagara Falls is a tremendous tourist attraction for both the United States and Canada. Both countries have cities named after the falls, in New York and Ontario. • Of the three waterfalls, Horseshoe Falls is the largest on the Canadian side. The other two are American Falls and the much smaller Bridal Veil Falls. • While these waterfalls are not the largest in the world, they are among the world’s most impressive and most visited. The water that flows over the falls comes from the Great Lakes, which contain approximately 20 percent of the world’s fresh water. The Niagara River is actually a connecting channel between Lakes Erie and Ontario. After going over Niagara Falls, the water eventually makes its way to the Atlantic Ocean. • Both Canada and the United States use the powerful waterfalls for power generation, drinking water, fishing, agriculture and tourism. • The flow of water over Niagara Falls is greatly affected by the amount of precipitation going into the Great Lakes. This was noticed many years ago, so in 1910, the International Joint Commission (USA and Canada) began regulating the water levels. • Later, the “1950 Niagara Treaty” was signed by the two governments. This treaty concerns the diversion of water from the Niagara River to be used for power generation by both countries. The treaty also addressed the importance of the flow of water over the falls for tourism. • The treaty states that the flow over Niagara Falls must not be less than 100,000 cubic feet per second during daylight hours of tourist season, April 1 through October 31. The hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. from April to September 15 and then adjusted to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. from September 16 to October 31. The flow must not be less than 50,000 cubic feet per second at all other times. • The treaty also specifies that excess water may be diverted for power generation. The Sir Adam Beck Station in Ontario and New York State Power Authority use the falls to provide electricity to more than a million people. • Niagara Falls has hosted its share of daredevils through the years. The first trip over the falls was staged by three hotel owners in 1827. Highly publicized, the event attracted approximately 10,000 people to see an old condemned schooner named Michigan go over the falls with a load of “ferocious” animals. The animals actually were a buffalo, two raccoons, two small bears, a dog and a goose. The two bears, loose on the deck of the boat, jumped overboard and swam to Goat Island before the boat went over the abyss. The goose was the only survivor of the plunge. • Two years later, the first human to survive going over the falls took his plunge. Sam Patch actually did it twice, 10 days apart, diving headfirst off of two diving boards he erected on Goat Island. The second dive was actually higher than the first. • One of the most famous daredevils to cross the falls did it 10 times from 1858 to 1860. “The Great Blondin” was a Frenchman who crossed Niagara Falls walking on tightropes.

We all know that most of what we eat is probably bad for us if it tastes good. We also know that one of the biggest things you have to watch out for when you are dieting is excess calories. Your calorie intake for the day is what is going to translate to either a weight gain or weight loss. When it comes right down to it, a diet is that simple. Sure some foods may offer you more health benefits than others and can aide in determining the type of weight you lose (fat as opposed to muscle) during the diet but as long as you are taking in less calories than you are burning you will see the number on the scale going down. This is why these low calorie shakes work! They replace an entire meal which also can save you money.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw who made the following sage observation: “A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” ● We’re all familiar with the act of CPR -- we often see a film or television character come to the rescue and save a life using the technique. And on TV, according to a recent study, CPR is shown as being successful 75 percent of the time. The reality is not quite so rosy, though. A study conducted in 2010 found that when CPR is used in real life, only about 8 percent of the patients were still alive after one month. Of those who did survive that long, 97 percent couldn’t live a normal life. ● Do you suffer from astraphobia? If so, I hope you don’t live in Florida. Those who are afraid of lightning would be terrified in the Sunshine State, especially in Tampa, known as the lightning capital of the world. ● Researchers in the United Kingdom have invented a robot that eats slugs and is powered by the gas from the decaying creatures. They have dubbed their creation the SlugBot. ● For six generations, many members of the Fugate family of the Appalachian region of Kentucky have suffered from a rare blood disorder called methemoglobinemia. The disorder seems to have no adverse health effects, but it’s not at all difficult to diagnose it at a glance: Sufferers have blue skin. Not just a slight tinge, either; various family members have been described as “blue as Lake Louise,” “the bluest woman I ever saw” and “almost purple.” *** Thought for the Day: “A stockbroker urged me to buy a stock that would triple its value every year. I told him, ‘At my age, I don’t even buy green bananas.”’ -- Claude Pepper (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• French: Chefs know what it means to “french” a food item. It’s a verb that means to cut into thin strips, like, well, french fries. (And yes, that’s how the finger-friendly potato dish took its name.) Green beans are another item commonly prepared in this manner. • Maltese: These tiny spaniels are easy to identify thanks to their long, silky coats. The American Kennel Club groups them with other “Toy Dogs” like Pugs and Yorkshire Terriers. Feline aficionados also use the term Maltese to describe cats that have a similarly silky, grayblue coat.

• Colombian: This term means different things to different people, depending on how you get your “jones.” Narcotics dealers may refer to their products as Colombian, although the actual source is often unknown. Luckily, the majority of us prefer a bit of legal Colombian, as in the coffee grown in the South American nation. The prevalence of coffee shops throughout America is proof enough of usthis just week’s can’t get along Arethat youmany enjoying issue of in the morning without a hot cup of Colombian. Tidbits?

MORNING GLORY

Morning glories are plants that usually occur as vines and typically produce funnel-shaped flowers that open in the morning hours. • Morning glories belong to the plant family Convolvulaceae, derived from the Latin word convolvere that means “to wind.” The morning glory family contains over 1,000 species.

Production

• Members of the morning glory family range from showy flowers such as cultivated species in the genus Ipomoea to troublesome weeds such as field bindweed. The common sweet potato is a member of the morning glory family.

Heavy Production

• Sweet potatoes are believed to have originated from an area somewhere between the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and the mouth of the Orinoco River in Venezuela.
