by Kathy Wolfe

Yes. Women can be, grandchildren can be, anyone you designate can be a casket bearer. What’s cool is it involves the family. Even though it’s very difficult emotionally for people to carry their grandpa or father to the grave it’s also something they can do that nobody else can do for them. I like to relate it to your father carried you, your mother carried you, and you have the opportunity to carry them this last time.

The well-known “Yodel-Ay-EEE-ooo” features the “EEE” sung in the head voice, with the other tones sung in the chest voice. It’s believed that yodeling got its start as a method of communication between shepherds and their stock in the Swiss Alps. The technique was made popular again in recent years with a song featured in Disney’s 1994 The Lion King called “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Also known as “Wimoweh,” it was first recorded in 1939, then again in 1961. turn the page for more!

• When you open a carton of yogurt, do you know what you’re eating? It’s a mixture of milk and cream that has been fermented with live bacteria at a warm temperature. Because your body needs to have a certain amount of “good” bacteria in the digestive tract, lactic acid-producing bacteria such as acidophilus are added to the mix. Nomadic Bedouins process camel’s milk into drinkable yogurt, and often live on nothing else for six months. Although yogurt has probably been around for about 8,000 years, the well-known Yoplait has only been in existence for 49 of those. In 1964, a group of French dairy farmers agreed to merge in order to sell their goods nationwide. They linked the names of two of the farmers, Yola and Coplait to form their new brand Yoplait. • The most important holiday of the Jewish calendar is Yom Kippur, which translates “Day of Atonement.” It’s a day set aside to repent from and atone for the sins of the past year. It occurs on the tenth day of the Jewish month of Tishri, which in 2013 will be September 14. Yom Kippur is a day of fasting, and traditions include no eating or drinking, no bathing, and no wearing of leather shoes. It is also customary to wear white on this day as a symbol of purity, representing the promise that “our sins shall be made as white as snow.” Back in 1965, Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax made the news when he decided not to pitch the first game of the World Series because that day fell on Yom Kippur. • Renowned cellist Yo Yo Ma was born in Paris to Chinese parents. He began studying the cello at age four, shortly before the family moved to New York City. As a child prodigy he began performing at age five, and at seven, performed for Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver ● You probably are aware that the names that foreign places are known by in the English language are not always the same as the names of those places in the local tongue. The capital of Russia is called Moskva in that country, and to Italians it’s not Venice, but Venezia. Not all names sound so similar, though; if you didn’t know the language, it would be nearly impossible to figure out that Ellinki Dimokratia is what Greeks call their country, and that Konungariket Sverige is Sweden to the Swedish. South Korea is known locally as Han Kook, China is Zhonghua Renmin Gonghe Guo, and Finland is Suomen Tasavalta. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra is considered one of baseball’s greatest catchers. Yogi, who played 17 years with the New York Yankees, was a 15-time All Star and was the American League MVP three times. He was later a player/ coach for the NY Mets, a coach and manager for the Mets and Yankees, and a coach for the Houston Astros. As a player, coach, and manager, Yogi appeared in 21 World Series (14 years as a player). The Yankees retired his Number 8 jersey in 1972, the same year he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Yogi was well known for his witty comments, often called “Yogi-isms,” such as, “Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.” When asked why the Yankees lost the 1960 World Series, he responded, “We made too many wrong mistakes.” A childhood friend gave Yogi his famous nickname, saying he looked like a Hindu snake charmer he had seen in a movie.







• Baby boomers will recall a favorite cartoon character created by Hanna-Barbera in 1958. Yogi Bear made his debut in the animated Huckleberry Hound Show. In 1961, Yogi was given his own show, which featured his adventures in Jellystone Park, accompanied by his faithful companion Boo-Boo. They spent their days stealing “pic-a-nic baskets” from campers and outsmarting Park Ranger Smith. Yogi was full of self-confidence as he regularly proclaimed, “I’m smarter than the average bear!” Yogi’s character was modeled after the popular Honeymooners character Ed Norton, played by popular celebrity of the time Art Carney.

• The name of Denton True Young might not be familiar, but surely you’ve heard his nickname, Cy. Cy Young had a 22year baseball career that started in 1890 pitching for the Cleveland Spiders. He moved on to the St. Louis Perfectos after eight seasons. Young established records that still stand today after more than 100 years, including most wins (511), career innings pitched (7,355), most career games started (815), and most completed games (749). He earned the nickname Cy after his fastball destroyed several fences. Reporters wrote that the fences looked like a cyclone had hit them, and the name stuck. The Cy Young Award, given to the leagues’ best pitchers, was established in 1956. • The Yorkshire Terrier breed of dog was developed in the 1800s in the county of Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills. The smallest Yorkie in recorded history was just 2.5 inches tall and weighed 4 ounces. Famous Yorkie owners include Paris Hilton, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Vanessa Williams. Audrey Hepburn’s Yorkie Mr. Famous appeared with her in a scene in her 1957 movie Funny Face. • The notorious Cole Younger Gang teamed up with the James Brothers in the 1870s and the eight-member band of outlaws went on a spree of train, stagecoach, and bank robberies. Their crimes came to a halt during a Minnesota bank robbery attempt in 1874. The James Brothers escaped, three other members were killed, and the three Younger brothers were captured. Cole Younger had been shot 11 times, but survived to serve 25 years in prison, after which he was paroled. During his prison time, he founded the longest-running prison newspaper in the U.S. On September 7, 1876 the JamesYounger Gang attempted to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota. On August 21, 1912, Cole Younger declared that he had become a Christian and repented of his criminal past.

When you think of correct manners, proper etiquette, and good taste, the name of Emily Post has to come to mind. Here is the history of this noted expert on appropriate behavior for any occasion. • Emily Post was born to a life of privilege in 1872, the daughter of a wealthy architect. She was educated by governesses and later attended New York City’s prestigious Miss Graham’s finishing school, where she was trained in all matters of ladylike conduct. As a young debutante, she met her future husband Edwin Main Post at an elegant ball in a posh Fifth Avenue mansion. Emily married the prominent banker when she was 20, and embarked on a lavish honeymoon tour throughout Europe. • Emily gave birth to her first son a year after her marriage, and to another in 1895. Her husband’s infidelity a few years later led to a scandal and the couple divorced in 1905. Emily requested no alimony from Edwin, as he had recently lost nearly everything in a stock market crash. Instead she turned to writing to support herself and her sons.

Time is what keeps things from happening all at once.

• Emily started out writing romantic short stories that were published in popular fiction magazines of the day, as well as articles on architecture and interior design. She moved on to novels and had published five by the year 1910. A publishing company editor urged her to write a book on etiquette, and in 1922, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home – The Blue Book of Social Usage was released and almost immediately became a best seller. In the years to come, ten editions of the book were published. •

Starting in 1931, Emily hosted a radio program, as well as producing a daily newspaper column, which was syndicated in 200 newspapers across the country. Along the way she continued to author new books, including The Personality of a House, Children Are People, Motor Manners, and The Emily Post Cook Book.

Emily’s approach to good manners was that of bringing common sense to behavior. Her root belief was that manners included “good form in speech, knowledge of proper social graces, and charm.” She especially disliked pretentious people, dirty silverware, and hostesses who served themselves first. Although she authored an advice column, she consistently avoided giving “lonely hearts” advice. She did hold fast to her advice whenever a single girl asked if it was correct to visit a man alone in his apartment – the answer was “No.”.

• In 1946, Emily founded the Emily Post Institute, an organization designed to offer expert etiquette advice to corporations, which continues to promote standards of good manners and civility around the world. Emily’s third and fourth generation descendants still write books and columns, and conduct seminars and workshops based on the principles of honesty, respect, and consideration. • In Emily’s words, manners are “a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” Look for puzzle answers on page 8.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle Holding up Each Other’s Arms

The battles we face in life are not meant to be fought alone. The enemy uses fear to immobilize us, he uses depression to hold us in bondage to self defeat and self worthlessness, and he uses exhaustion to weaken us. Exodus 17 reveals to us an intense battle and the willingness to accept the assistance and resources from others. The Israelites were encountering their first opposition while wandering in the desert. The Amalekites, a group of nomadic raiders, attacked the people of Israel. As long as Moses kept his arms up, Joshua had the edge in battle. Eventually, Moses became weary, and so Aaron and Hur responded by placing a stone underneath him to sit on while holding up his arms until the Israelites were able to finally defeat the Amalekites. Each individual mentioned had the help of others. Learn to always use the resources and help from others to win your battles.

Windmill Manor Proudly Presents Senior News Line by Matilda Charles

Volunteer at Your Local Schools A gentleman in Iowa has gone back to school, although not in the traditional sense. He’s found his way to the local elementary school, where he volunteers doing a variety of tasks -- not just a few hours a week, but every day. He’s 74 years old. Some days he spends time one-on-one with children who need help with math. Other times he helps those struggling with reading. During his “spare” time he reorganized the school’s library. His school feels lucky to have him. All across the country there are schools in trouble. They’re victims of budget cuts that take away valuable resources, perhaps the resources that the kids need most. Instead of a reading specialist in each school, maybe that specialist is spread out over five schools, and too many kids are falling through the cracks. The federal infusion of “turnaround” dollars for the past three years is about to end. Less money will mean even fewer resources. It can be a vicious cycle. But it’s one that we can break -- by volunteering at our schools. Here are some things you can do: --Help struggling students with math and reading at all grade levels. --Answer phones in the front office. --Help with building maintenance on an ongoing basis. --Teach art classes. --Assist with field trips. --Give presentations on a topic you know a lot about. --Organize bake sales. --Catalog, repair and shelve books in the library. --Give music lessons. --Chair an afternoon special-interest club. We have the time; we have the experience. Who better than seniors to lend a helping hand at our local schools? To get started, call the school principal, the head of the PTA or the district offices. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible. Write to her in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

June 6 has been proclaimed Naitonal Yo-Yo-Day in commemoration of the birthday of yo-yo king Donald Duncan. Follow along and discover some facts you may not have known about this favorite toy. • The official description of a yo-yo is “an axle connected to two disks, with a length of twine looped around the axle.” The first historical evidence of a yo-yo was found in Greece from the year 500 B.C., a vase featuring a painting of a boy playing with the toy. A 1789 painting of France’s King Louis XVII, which hangs in the Louvre, shows the young monarch with a yo-yo as well. Two Ohio men received the first U.S. patent on the item in 1866. • In 1928, Pedro Flores launched the Yo-Yo Manufacturing Company in Santa Barbara, California. Within a year, he had opened two more factories, employing a total of 600 workers, and producing 300,000 yo-yo’s every day. By the end of another year, Donald Duncan had purchased all of Flores’ assets and had the name “yo-yo” registered as a trademark, meaning only he could use that name for the toy. • Duncan moved the entire operation to Luck, Wisconsin in 1946, and the community became known as the “Yo-Yo Capital of the World,” cranking out 3,600 yo-yo’s per hour. For 14 years, maple wooden yo-yo’s were manufactured, using 1,000,000 board feet every year. Plastic yo-yo’s came along in 1960. • Competitors of Duncan didn’t like that he had the exclusive rights to the word “yo-yo” and fought for the rights to use it. Unfortunately for the Duncan company, in 1965, after a long and expensive court battle, a Federal Court of Appeals ruled that the trademark for the word itself was not valid. Duncan lost its rights, and profits diminished to the point that the company had to declare bankruptcy three years later. They were bought out by Flambeau and surrendered the company and even the famous name of Duncan. • Well-known yo-yo tricks include “sleeping,” which keeps a yo-yo spinning at the end of its uncoiled string. Looping keeps the body of the yo-yo in constant motion without sleeping, while “walking the dog” involves throwing a strong sleeper, then gently allowing the yo-yo to touch the floor, where it rolls forward like a dog on a leash. • Enthusiasts can see the world’s largest yoyo at the National Yo-Yo Museum in Chico, California. It measures 50 inches high and weighs 256 lbs. . The museum also houses yoyo’s dating back to the 1920s. Chico is home to the National Yo-Yo Contest each October. • The yo-yo was first taken into space in April of 1985 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery when NASA introduced their Toys in Space project. •

America’s National Toy Hall of Fame was established in 1998. Located in Rochester, New York, it pays tribute to those toys and games that have maintained their popularity over many years. In order to be considered for the honor, a toy must be “widely recognized, respected, and remembered,” foster learning and creativity, be more than a passing fad, as well as show innovation. The yo-yo was inducted into the Hall at its inception, along with the kite, rocking horse, jigsaw puzzle, Checkers, and doll houses, among many others.
