• The man has a day named after him, but who exactly was St. Patrick? Strangely enough, his name wasn’t Patrick, and he wasn’t born in Ireland, but rather in Scotland! Maewyn Succat was born in the late fourth century to a wealthy family, but at the age of 16, he was kidnapped from the family estate by a group of Irish raiders and sold into slavery. During his six years of captivity, he was a shepherd, and experienced a conversion to Christianity. According to folklore, a voice came to him urging him to escape, which he did, aboard a pirate ship. Yet the voice further counseled him to return to Ireland as a missionary to convert the Irish to Christianity. • After 15 years of study for the priesthood, during which time Succat took on the name Patricius, he began his 29-year-long mission in Ireland. Ancient legend tells of Patrick standing on a hilltop holding up his wooden staff, banishing all the snakes from Ireland. Because there were no snakes in Ireland, it’s believed this was merely symbolic of Patrick driving out the evil and pagan philosophies.

(continued): • Patrick wasn’t made a saint until the early 17th century, hundreds of years after his death in the year 461. March 17 is the anniversary of his death and is his religious feast day. • Although we think of the color green when St. Patrick is mentioned, blue was the first color to represent the hero. In 1783, The Order of St. Patrick was founded, the senior order of chivalry and fellowship of knights. The Order of the Thistle already used green for their uniforms and the Order of the Garter used dark blue, so the Order of St. Patrick used a shade of sky blue. Military uniforms were of “St. Patrick’s Blue” and during the time of King Henry VIII, and the flag of Ireland was a gold harp on a blue background. The harp remains as the country’s national emblem today. • Between 1846 and 1900, about 2,873,000 people emigrated from Ireland to America, making it the second largest nationality group of immigrants, second only to Germany. The most predominant occupation of those newcomers was that of skilled weaver.

• In 2010, about 34.7 million U.S. residents claimed ancestors from Ireland. What were the most common Irish surnames of these folks? The last names of Murphy, Kelly, and O’Sullivan are considered the top three “most Irish.” Other common Irish surnames include Walsh, O’Brien, Byrne, Ryan, O’Connor, O’Neill, and O’Reilly. • Ireland has had its influence on geographical locations in the U.S. Seven communities are named Shamrock, including locations in Texas, Oklahoma, and West Virginia. Sixteen other towns are named Dublin, sharing the name with Ireland’s capital. North Carolina is home to the community of Emerald Isle, population 3,655.

For Advertising E-mail: or Call (319) 360-3936 STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver ● It was screenwriter, playwright, novelist, director and producer Ben Hecht who made the following sage observation: “Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock.” ● Those who study such things say that the Earth spins faster on its axis in September than it does in March. ● When the TV show “Bewitched” first started filming, the star, Elizabeth Montgomery, was just a month away from giving birth to her first child, so the first five episodes were shot almost in their entirety without her. It wasn’t until the baby was a few weeks old that she was able to go on the set to film her scenes. ● If you’re a fan of the Beatles, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that during the decade of the 1960s, they had more top 10 hits and more No. 1 records than any other recording artist. ● The country’s first pay phone was installed in a bank in Hartford, Conn., in 1889. It cost 5 cents to place a call, the equivalent of $1.25 today. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

(continued): • St. Patrick’s Day often brings beer and taverns to mind, but that tradition didn’t start in Ireland. The Irish Parliament declared the day a religious holiday in 1903, meaning that all the pubs were closed. In 1970, that bill was overturned and the day became a national holiday rather than a religious observance. • The tradition of a St. Patrick’s Day parade began in America, not Ireland. New York City was home to the first parade, held on March 17, 1762. Irish soldiers serving in the British army organized the celebration to honor the Catholic feast day of Ireland’s patron saint. Today, New York’s parade is the largest in the world with more than 200,000 marchers along the Fifth Avenue route. Close to three million spectators observe the parade, which does not allow automobiles or floats. • Canada’s longest-running parade is in the city of Montreal, where it first took place in 1824.. • The three-color Irish flag – orange, green, and white – was created in 1848, and is symbolic of the country’s politics. The orange stands for the Irish Protestants, green for the Catholics, and white represents the hope that peace be reached between the two. • Have you ever heard of the trifolium dubium? That’s the name given to the shamrock by botanists. The early Celts referred to the shamrock as the seamroy, and considered this three-leafed clover a sacred plant with mystical properties. Legend has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to first-century Irish pagans. During the 17th century when the English began seizing Irish land and prohibiting the use of their native language and Catholic religion, many Irish started wearing the shamrock as a symbol of pride in their heritage.

~ Celebrating 60 years ~ An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam..... after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: “Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist.” Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class however, was up and finished in less than a minute. Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words: “What chair?”

(continued): • The Irish word lobaircin means “smallbodied fellow,” and has been modified a bit to the English word “leprechaun.” These little imps date back to the early Celtic beliefs in fairies, those tiny men and women with magical powers, who used those powers for either good or evil. Leprechauns were seen as grumpy little men, whose duties were to mend the shoes of the other fairies. We’ve all heard of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Folklore claims that the little men have great treasures stored in crocks, and use trickery to protect it from others. If a leprechaun is captured by a human, he has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for his release. In 1959, Walt Disney Studios released the film Darby O’Gill and the Little People, which gave us the image of cheerful and friendly leprechauns, but in Irish folklore, they are cantankerous and mischievous. • Indiana’s University of Notre Dame is home to the Fighting Irish, a team that played its inaugural game in November of 1887. In 1918, Knute Rockne took over as head coach and his record of the highest winning percentage (.881) in football history, either college or professional, still stands. Notre Dame has produced the second largest number of players drafted into the NFL, the greatest number of Heisman Trophy winners, and ten former Irish have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Every home game has been sold out since 1966, with the exception of one Thanksgiving Day contest against the Air Force in 1973, when the students had gone home for the holiday.

A buddy and I were golfing one afternoon and getting somewhat bored with the round; so when we came upon the water hazard with two ducks sitting quietly on the water, I bet him ten bucks he couldn’t hit a duck and five dollars he couldn’t even get one to move. Being a guy, he took the bet. He launched four tee shots toward the ducks, and even threw two by hand, and the ducks still wouldn’t budge. Only after he lost six golf balls did he realize the ducks were decoys.

The Best Thing for You Pt 1

Have you ever gripped a chain link fence so hard that the circulation to your fingers stopped causing them to turn purple? The only cure is to let go. Studies have shown many benefits if we can learn to do one thing; let go and FORGIVE. Forgiveness can’t change the past but it can change the future. Here are some results of this healthy decision. • Forgiveness is good for your heart- is associated with lower heart rate and blood pressure as well as stress relief. This can bring long-term health benefits for your heart and overall health.

Forgiveness is associated with five measures of health: physical symptoms, medications used, sleep quality, fatigue, & somatic complaints. The reduction of depressive symptoms strengthened spirituality, conflict management, and stress relief. Forgiveness releases the offending party which allows positive behaviors toward others outside of the relationship.

Forgiveness is good for your body, your relationships, & your place in the world. Next week we will look at some tools on how to forgive.

Hawkeye Publishing, L.L.C. For Advertising E-mail: or Call (319) 360-3936 FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD: The most popular child star of all time, Shirley Temple, brought a ray of sunshine to the troubled folks of the Great Depression era. How much do you know about this bright and talented individual who was a success not only on the screen but in public service as well? Follow along as see! • Born in 1928, Shirley was the daughter of a bank employee father and a homemaker mother, who enrolled her in dance school at age three. When a talent search was conducted at the school, Shirley was signed by Educational Pictures and appeared in a number of movie shorts, as well as modeling for cereal ads. The 1932 movie Red-Haired Alibi brought Shirley her first feature film role.

One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on a parrot.

He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid - the parrot was his at last! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, “I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can’t talk!” “Don’t worry.” said the Auctioneer, “He can talk. Who do

you think kept bidding against you?” Look for puzzle answers on page 8.

• The first feature film created specifically for Shirley was 1934’s Bright Eyes, which featured her famous number “On the Good Ship Lollipop.” Over 500,000 copies of the sheet music were sold following the movie’s release. At the age of six, she received a miniature Juvenile Oscar for her 1934 accomplishments, and her feet and hand prints were added to the concrete forecourt of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. • By the time she was six, Shirley had already starred in 20 movies. The Shirley Temple doll was introduced, wearing a polka-dot dress modeled after the one she wore in 1934’s Stand Up and Cheer! By 1941, sales on the doll had topped $45 million. The sizable list of her other products included a line of clothing, soap, dishes, and books. Shirley also endorsed Quaker Puffed Wheat, General Electric, and Packard, among others. At age seven, her merchandise royalties were double the income from her movies. • Shirley was the top box-office draw for a four-year period, 1935 through 1938, saved 20th Century-Fox from bankruptcy, and had her own personal bodyguard. • Following the huge success of Heidi, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, and The Little Princess, Shirley performed in her last film as a child actress in 1940 at age 12. The film was The Blue Bird and was her 44th movie. Her popularity declined as she entered adolescence, and she made just a few films as a teen and young adult. When she was 15, Shirley met an Army Air Corps sergeant named John Agar, and at age 17, she married him. Their daughter was born when Shirley was 19, but the marriage was over after four years. •

December, 1950 was the time of two momentous occasions in Shirley’s life – she announced her retirement from the film industry at age 22, and she married wealthy California businessman Charles Black. This union would endure 54 years until his death. She entered the political arena in 1969, when Richard Nixon appointed her as the U.S. Representative to the United Nations. Under Gerald Ford, Shirley served as Ambassador to Ghana and White House Chief of Protocol. Her assignment under Ronald Reagan was that of a foreign affairs officer with the State Department. During the George H.W. Bush administration, she was the Ambassador to Czechoslovakia. She became a bestselling author in 1988 with the release of her autobiography Child Star. • Shirley Jane Temple is 84 years old.

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 that many of us just can’t get along in the morning without a hot cup of Colombian. • Chinese: The generic term “chinese” now represents types of food that are very different from the meals that are (or ever were) served in China. That said, the same argument could be made about what we consider “American” food. Hamburgers? Ice cream?

Fine Print

Sometimes brochures and cards that come in the mail look like something real and legitimate. I received a card that at first glance appeared to have come from Social Security. It invited me to send back the card (postage paid) to receive a free brochure entitled “New Social Security Changes and Benefits.” It was only when I looked at the very bottom at the fine print (and yes, I had to use a magnifying glass because it was so tiny) that I learned the sender was not affiliated with the government: It was a sales pitch! When I traced down the person named on the card, it turned out he’s selling investments. I found the same card on a marketing site on the Internet. Marketing companies sell the cards as a direct-mail piece, part of a lead-generation program for salespeople. Somehow they got my name and address, and hoped I’d fill out even more information on the card (date of birth, home phone number and email address) and mail it back to them. With that information, they could start calling me to push whatever they’re selling. I found a similar website, one that deals with promotional mailers, with this banner streaming across the top: “Social Security Leads are HOT ... mailers pulling 5 percent-plus.” That means that one in every 20 people who receive the mailing piece will respond. The lesson in all this is to hesitate before you fill out something you get in the mail, even if it appears to be legitimate. Get out your magnifying glass and look carefully. You might find a line or two of the truth at the bottom. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

This week there’s no shortage of short things! Take a look at a number of items containing the word “short.” • Randy Newman’s 1977 Billboard top hit “Short People” described his subject, “They got little baby legs that stand so low, you got to pick ‘em up just to say hello.” Who is classified as a short person? The term “short stature” refers to any person substantially under the average height for a person of the same age and gender. Pediatricians use a measurement called standard deviation that compares the height of different children. A child’s height must be more than two SD’s below average height in order to have short stature, and 95% percent of comparable children are taller. • Do you know the difference between IRS forms 1040A and 1040EZ? Form 1040A is the “short form” while 1040EZ is the “easy” form, the simplest way to file taxes. Both are limited to taxpayers with less than $100,000 in taxable income who take the standard deduction. However, the easy form is only for those with no dependents. • A short sale on the stock exchange means that the seller does not actually own the shares he/ she is selling and has to borrow them before being able to deliver. When the share price falls, the short seller buys them and returns them to the lender, resulting in a gain on the deal. • If someone calls you short, he/she might be referring to your height, but could be telling you that your demeanor is abrupt, discourteous, or unfriendly. A short presentation doesn’t always refer to its duration. It might mean it was succinct and concise. • Look at all the idioms in the English language that contain the word “short.” You can make short work of something by finishing it quickly. You might run short (not have enough), fall short (fail to measure up to a certain standard), or cut short (interrupt someone). If you’ve submitted your resume for a job, you might be on the short list, one that contains those narrowed down from the full pool of applicants. Hopefully, on that resume, you didn’t sell yourself short, that is, didn’t give yourself full credit where it was deserved. You certainly wouldn’t want to get the short end of the stick, which might mean unfair treatment or not getting what you are worthy of. • If you want to retain information in your shortterm memory, it will be necessary for you to repeat it out loud or mentally rehash it from time to time. By doing so, the data re-enters the memory’s storage, enabling it to be preserved for a longer period. • What in the world is hydrogenated vegetable oil? Just a fancy name for shortening! Hydrogenation involves adding extra hydrogen atoms to vegetable fats, which turns them into solids. Shortening is 100% fat, compared to the 80% fat content of butter and margarine. Procter & Gamble introduced Crisco, an abbreviation of “crystallized cottonseed oil” in June of 1911. • It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Making shortbread, that is. The traditional recipe calls for one part sugar, two parts butter, and three parts flour. This little treat originated in Scotland during medieval times, when the word “short” was used to describe all things crisp and crumbly. Shortcake is not the same as shortbread. It uses vegetable fat rather than butter and adds some leavening agent such as baking powder, resulting in a different texture.

A proud father brought home a swing set he had just purchased for his children and immediately began to assemble it while all the neighborhood children anxiously waited to play on it. After several hours of reading the assembly instructions and trying to fit bolt A into slot B, etc., he gave up and called upon an old handyman working in a neighboring yard. The old-timer came over, tossed the directions away, and had the set completely assembled in a short period of time. “It’s beyond me,” the father said, “how you managed to get it all put together without even reading the directions.” To tell the truth,” replied the old-timer, “I can’t read, and when you can’t read, you’ve got to think.”
