EAT YOUR GREENS!

by Patricia L. Cook Just as “Popeye” from the cartoon of days gone by ate his spinach for strength, we should eat plenty of leafy green vegetables as part of our everyday diet. This Tidbits look at leafy greens that are good for you, just as your mother said! • The National Cancer Institute reports, “foods rich in vitamins A and C have been associated with the reduced risk of certain cancers.” Many leafy green vegetables are excellent sources of these two vitamins as well as vitamins K and B, calcium, iron, fiber and more. • Greens are naturally low in sodium and calories. For example: a cup of raw spinach has only 14 calories and a 1 cup serving of cooked collards has only 38 calories. All greens are fat and cholesterol free. • According to Jill Nussinow, registered dietician, culinary educator in Northern California and author of a very informative book, “The Veggie Queen,” “Greens are the No. 1 food you can eat regularly to improve your health.” • Keep these in mind when eating greens: “Green is good. Dark green is better. Organic dark leafy green is best.” If you grow your own — and they are easy to grow — you know how your vegetables have been treated. turn the page for more!

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR JIM COYLE Our Words Have a Ripple Effect As a rock creates a ripple when it is dropped in a puddle of water, our words also create a ripple when they are dropped on ears. Our words go well beyond the initial impact. It is very wise to choose our words well because we have no idea who they are going to effect. Here are some things to think about before we speak. •         Words •         Can build or destroy •         Words can encourage or discourage •         Words can heal or hurt •         Words can motivate or deflate Many times our careless words are meaningless chatter when we have nothing to contribute. Let’s be swift to hear and slow to speak.

• Nussinow, in a webMD article, ranked the nutrition of the most widely eaten greens in the United States. The top 10 are: kale, collards, turnip greens, Swiss chard, spinach, mustard greens, broccoli, red and green leaf and romaine lettuces (altogether), cabbage, and iceberg lettuce. • There are other nutritional greens not listed above that are widely available in North America. The information available for all greens is immense. We’ll look at some interesting Tidbits for both highly and less popular greens. • Even though it may sound incorrect, all greens are not green! Leafy green vegetables have much color variety, from the bluishgreen of kale to the bright “Kelly” green of spinach, to the light, somewhat white of cabbage. • There is even a black cabbage (Cavalo Nero), which is actually a very dark green that is also called Tuscan kale. It originated from the Tuscany region of Italy where it is grown in most vegetable gardens. Cavalo Nero is an essential ingredient in the very healthy signature soup of the region, ribollita. • The Tuscan region of Italy is famous for many culinary things including the cooking term, “Florentine.” This term can be interpreted as the cooking style used in Florence, Italy, but has also come to describe the cuisine that includes spinach as an ingredient. Florentine cooking also uses fresh herbs like rosemary, basil, parsley and thyme. Since Tuscany is close to the coast, Florentine cooking features seafood dishes as well as local boar, rabbit and beef from the regions’ white Chianina cattle. According to folklore, the association of spinach with Florence may have been because of Catherine de Medici, the Italian wife of King Henry II, who reigned in France from 1560-1563.

After Isaac had endured 8 days of severe diarrhea, thought to be viral, his parents took him to a local hospital. His blood counts were so critical he was rushed to the University of Iowa Pediatrics Emergency room. Once there he was diagnosed with Leukemia. The diarrhea had caused an intestinal fissure which harbored many types of bacteria. The surgeons operated 9 times in 9 days to partially remove the damaged tissue and clean out as much bacteria as possible. These surgeries also included removal of his rectum, a colostomy, and placement of an external colostomy bag to collect solid waste. During these 9 days he was also placed in the hyperbaric chamber three times. After all of his pain and suffering, they could finally start the chemotherapy. Little Isaac is back home in Cedar Rapids now, but he will have to return to Iowa City for chemo every week for some time to come. Friends of the family are trying to raise money to help Isaac, his parents, and 4 siblings. A lunch and raffle benefit has been scheduled for September 8, 2012 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Any donations of merchandise or gift certificates will bring much needed cash at the benefit. • Call Carol Horne at 396-6129 to have your merchandise donation picked up. • Certificates can be mailed to: Carol Kiesling at 3310 Southland St SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404. • A financial donation can be sent to: Isaac Woerner Benefit in care of US Bank at 129 16th Ave SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404. Please make your checks payable to: The Isaac Woerner Benefit Account. We sincerely thank you and pray that nothing like this happens to any other children

Greens play a major role in cancer fighting and prevention. They are an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, fiber, beta-carotene, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, lutein, folate, and chlorophyll. They boost the immune system and lower the incidence of some cancers They also support cardiovascular health, build bones, and fight birth defects. Due to their high content of lutein, they are effective in cardiovascular disease and age-related macular degeneration. Greens are part of the cruciferous vegetable family, which contains many essential vitamins and minerals to help the body fight disease. From baby field greens to kale, greens pack a powerful nutritious punch.

• Supposedly to honor her Italian roots, Queen Catherine introduced spinach to the Court of France and dubbed any dish containing spinach to be “Florentine.” Whether the story is true or not, Florentine is now synonymous with spinach in dishes such as Eggs Florentine, Oysters Florentine and more. • To make for some confusing terminology, “Florentines” refer to a sweet, baked confection that contains no spinach! These Florentines are a European sweet served as a cake, bar or cookie. Sweet Florentines are a mixture of candied fruit, toasted nuts, honey and/or sugar and topped with a layer of melted chocolate. • Moving away from sweets and back to greens, a green that has many names around the world is rapini or what is more commonly known as broccoli raab. This green is unrelated to broccoli even though broccoli is in its name. It is a close relative to turnips, and the greens look very similar to turnip greens. Other names linked to this green are rapa, rapine, raab, rappi, rappone, fall and spring raab, turnip broccoli, broccoli rape, broccoli de rabe, Italian turnip and turnip broccoli. • As more greens are available in North America, an old favorite has decreased in popularity. Iceberg lettuce was an overwhelming success for years because of its ability to remain crunchy even after days and sometimes weeks of shipping. Up until the 1930s, iceberg was known as “Crisphead” lettuce.

Since lettuce is very low in calories and has a high water content, it’s been effective when consumed as a diet food. Monday - Saturday 7-8 Lunch specials Sunday 7-6 Specialty coffee Hyperlink in Master page 319.438.6617 9 South Ave., Central City, IA Drinks & More

EAT YOUR GREENS!(continued):

• Bruce Church, from Salinas, California, the founder of Fresh Express, is given credit for popularizing iceberg lettuce. Along with three partners, he formed an ice company in the 1930s that shipped fresh heads of lettuce across the country in rail cars. “Crisphead” lettuce became more commonly known as “iceberg” when folks would meet the train cars of ice-packed lettuce with calls of “The icebergs are coming!” The name change stuck, and Americans’ love of fresh salads grew with the fresh availability. • Up until the mid-1970s, more than 95 percent of all lettuce grown in the United States was iceberg. Even though leaf lettuces have surged in popularity in the last 30-40 years, iceberg still remains a big seller. So, the next time you are eating out, check to see if a “wedge” salad is offered. It will be the familiar iceberg we grew up with. • Another popular salad that some think started with Julius Caesar is the Caesar Salad. It actually had its start in Tijuana, Mexico, with Cesare Cardini, who immigrated to the San Diego area with his brother, Alex, from Italy after World War I. The brothers opened Caesar’s Restaurant in Tijuana instead of San Diego because of alcohol prohibition in the United States. Invented in the 1920s, the Caesar Salad was mostly just a California specialty for years, with romaine lettuce being the green. The popularity of Caesar salads soared in the 1970s, and the romaine crop grew from a few California acres to 16,000 acres in the 1990s and more than 80,000 acres today.

STRANGE BUT TRUE

● Every year, about $500 million is spent on beads for Mardi Gras.

● Are you acersecomic? If your hair has never been cut, you are. ● Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was not himself a slave owner. He reportedly did not believe in the institution of slavery.

● The ancient Egyptians were known to use crocodile dung as a contraceptive.

Hiring a Caregiver Through an Agency When you hire a caregiver for a family member or parent, how do you know who or what you’re getting? If you hire someone through an agency, you would expect that it’s done all the background checks. But can you trust the agencies? AARP posted on its website the results of a study done by Dr. Lee Lindquist of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Lindquist discovered that only half of placement agencies do any background screening or testing of caregivers. Only one-third do any drug testing or check out qualifications. And only one-third send supervisors out to check on caregivers. Scary, isn’t it? Lindquist developed a list of 10 questions to ask agencies if you’re considering using them to hire a caregiver: 1. How do they recruit caregivers and what are their requirements? 2. What kind of screenings do they do? What level of background check? Any drug testing? 3. Is there any training, such as certification in CPR? 4. How are the caregivers insured? Are they bonded? 5. What skills do the caregivers have? Are they skilled in transfers, dressing and bathing? 6. How does the agency assess these skills? Do they reply only on the applicant’s word? 7. What is their policy if caregivers can’t do what is stated in the contract? 8. If you’re unhappy with the care, will the agency provide a substitute? 9. Is there a supervisor who will evaluate the quality of the care? How often? 10. Is the supervision via phone or home visits? Your best bets: Look for a caregiver through your church or support group. Ask others for recommendations. Contact seniors service agencies for recommendations.

THE FRENCH QUARTER

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

● On Aug. 9, 1936, at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, black American track star Jesse Owens wins his fourth gold medal of the Games in the 4-by-100-meter relay. His relay team set a new world record of 39.8 seconds, which stood for 20 years. ● On Aug. 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, drops the world’s first atom bomb over the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Some 80,000 people are killed as a result of the blast, and another 35,000 are injured. At least 60,000 more would be dead by the end of the year from the effects of the radioactive fallout. ● On Aug. 7, 1959, the U.S. unmanned spacecraft Explorer 6 is launched into an orbit around the Earth. The spacecraft featured a scanner that transmitted a crude picture of the Earth’s surface from a distance of 17,000 miles. The photo, received in Hawaii, took nearly 40 minutes to transmit. ● On Aug. 8, 1974, President Richard Nixon announces his intention to become the first president in American history to resign. With impeachment proceedings under way against him for his involvement in the Watergate affair, Nixon finally bowed to pressure from the public and Congress to leave the White House. ● On Aug. 10, 1981, Pete Rose of the Philadelphia Phillies gets the 3,631st hit of his baseball career, breaking Stan Musial’s record for most hits by a National Leaguer. It was only Rose’s 2,886th game; it had taken Musial 3,026 games to set the mark. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

The most historically and culturally significant piece of land in New Orleans is the French Quarter. The famous area was mostly spared in the ravaging destruction and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. • When French Canadian naval officer Jean Baptiste Bienville founded New Orleans in 1718, engineers developed a formal city plan for Nouvelle Orleans, the area that is now known as the French Quarter. The city grew out of the original borders to become an important American port city. As people arrived from all over the world, a distinct culture rich in music, food and tradition began to develop. • The “Quarter” is also known as Vieux Carré, which means “Old Square” in French. The area is located in downtown New Orleans, on some of the highest ground in the city on a crescent of the Mississippi River. Besides the river, the borders are roughly Canal Street, Rampart Street and Esplanade Avenue. The area today still occupies the same 6-by-13block area that was laid out in 1722. One of the best-preserved historical neighborhoods in America, the Quarter actually feels like a foreign country. The lasting influence of the French and Spanish settlers and planners is still present. • The architecture of the Quarter is a mix of mostly French and Spanish styles. The Spanish rule of New Orleans was short, from 1762 to 1800, but during that time there were two fires that virtually destroyed the French Quarter. In 1788, 850 structures were lost, and then another 200 were lost in 1794. A lot of what had been French architecture was replaced with Spanish-style wrought iron balconies and central courtyards. • The city was under French rule first, then Spanish and back to French before being sold to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase agreement in 1803. The Cabildo, built in 1799, is where the Louisiana Purchase signing took place and is now the main building of the Louisiana State Museum historical complex. • Over 35,000 buildings in New Orleans, many in the French Quarter, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Cabildo is sometimes called the second most important building in America, after Independence Hall in Philadelphia. • The Cabildo, St. Louis Cathedral and the Presbytere (also part of the museum complex) all surround Jackson Square. Originally called “Place d’Armes,” the Square is named after Andrew Jackson, a hero of the Battle of New Orleans. The Square is one of the most visited areas in the Quarter, where local artists paint, draw and display their works. St. Louis Cathedral is the oldest continuously active cathedral in the United States. • Another old establishment of the Quarter is the French Market, the oldest farmer’s market in the United States. Dating back to 1791, it also includes a flea market. The French Market is “three centuries of history, six blocks of shopping, open seven days a week!” • Any New Orleans visit should include the Original Cafe Du Monde Coffee Stand, established in 1862. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it closes only on Christmas Day and whenever a hurricane passes through. The coffee with chicory, served black or “au lait” (poured half and half with hot milk), and beignets, square French doughnuts, are definitely worth the wait. Yes, there is just about always a crowd!

August 7th 2012

December 22– January 19

June 22– July 22 Hasty decisions could lead to serious headache later, so leave no stone unturned in your search for a solution. Romance heats up with a small gesture, Cancer.

January 20– February 18 All hopes are pinned on you, and you will not disappoint, Aquarius. A little detective work uncovers the key to a recurring dilemma. Wahoo!

July 23– August 22

How much can you cram onto one plate, Capricorn? You may be a master at multitasking, but that doesn’t mean everyone else is. Slow down.

February 19– March 20 You become privy to information you would rather not have. Guard it with your life, Pisces. One slip could land you in a world of trouble. A message is delivered.

Alert, Leo. What appears to be the case may be something else entirely. You have two choices: Find out what is going on or leave the situation be. Choose carefully.

August 23– September 22 Questions mount, but they are not for you to answer, Virgo. Keep a low profile as usual, and all will be revealed in good time. Adventure calls.

March 21– April 19 Support gathers for a cause. Don’t miss out, Aries. You have much to offer. A loss in income is made up with the sacrifice of a luxury you don’t really care for.

September 23– October 22 A truce is reached, and you have that special someone to thank. Rumors begin to fly at the office; don’t get sucked in, Libra. A memo resolves the matter.

April 20– May 20 Miss a little, miss a lot, Taurus. Make plans now to savor every moment of an upcoming visit. A cherished memento could use some work.

October 23– November 21 Yes, a decision must be made, Scorpio, but it’s not your call. Stand back and let someone else take a stab at it. Flowers provide cheer to an old friend.

May 21– June 21 An artistic endeavor finally gets off the ground. A leak at work puts everyone on edge. Work to ease the tension, Gemini, before it gets out of hand.

November 22– December 21 A financial risk delivers, and you have the cash you need to make a goal reality, Sagittarius. A young friend is spiraling out of control. Rein them in before it’s too late.

KUDZU

Kudzu is oftened referred to as “the plant that ate the South.” Introduced to the United States at the first World’s Fair held in this country in 1876, its status has changed through the years from a prized plant for erosion control to an obnoxious weed. • The Philadelphia Centennial Exposition was held to celebrate the United States’ first 100 years. Countries from all over the world were invited to build exhibits and participate in the celebration. • The Japanese government constructed a garden filled with beautiful plants from their country. Among those plants, the large leaves and sweet-smelling blooms of kudzu caught the eyes of American gardeners. Kudzu was promoted as an ornamental plant to be used for erosion control and as a forage crop for livestock and horses. • For many years, Southern farmers were encouraged to plant kudzu to prevent erosion. ● Monday $5 burger basketsConservation 11-8 President Roosevelt’s Civilian ● Tuesday $6.99 tacos Corps planted it during the11-8 Great Depression Margaritas 11-8 were put to of the$4.00 1930s.well Hundreds of men ● Thursday, $5 Dozen Wings 4-9 farmers pm work planting kudzu. In the 1940s, Sunday All kudzu. Day Happy Hour! were ● paid to plant Allearly Games In High TVS • By●the 1950s, kudzuDefinition was growing out of control in many areas. The plant, without the natural insect enemies it has in Asia, can grow up to a foot per day and about 60 feet per growing season. In 1953, kudzu was declared a pest weed and removed from the list of permissible cover crops. • In 1972, the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) started searching for a way to control kudzu. The plant covers trees, shrubs, power poles, buildings, abandoned cars and anything in its path. It blocks sunlight, smothers plants and, due to its weight, even breaks branches and uproots trees! • Recently, a possible solution for controlling kudzu emerged from an insect problem reported by a Georgia gardener. Discovered was a little dark green insect later determined to be an Asian bug known as the bean plataspid. Interestingly, the bug is attracted to white cars, and biologists think a likely entry into the United States was via imported white cars, most likely from Japan. • Preliminary tests from the University of Georgia show that with the bean plataspid feeding on kudzu foliage, growth was reduced in test plots by about a third, compared to kudzu plots with no bugs. Unfortunately, the bugs also feed on soybeans, a valuable crop in the Southeastern United States. Botanically speaking, kudzu and soybeans are both legumes (bean family), and the fear is that the bug will feed on another important legume crop — peanuts. • Kudzu vines can grow up to 4 inches in diameter and extend from 32-100 feet. The massive tap roots can be 7 inches in diameter and over 6 feet in length, weighing as much as 400 pounds. Up to 30 vines can grow from one root crown. • According to the USDA, kudzu covers about 7 million acres in the South. Kudzu has been found from Florida west to Texas, north to Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana and Maine, and in the west in Washington and Oregon. In 2009, kudzu was first discovered in Canada near Leamington, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Erie. • Southerners have a love-hate relationship with kudzu. Consequently, there are kudzu festivals, kudzu queens and even kudzu jelly. While most buy the jelly as a novelty, some say it has a pleasant grape-like taste.

A: While I’m not an expert in dealing with homeowners’ associations, my first thought would be that you should review the most recent copy of your HOA’s rules. You’ll want to find out what rule or rules the association is referring to, and if rain barrels are specifically mentioned. You’ll also want to find out what your rights are as a member of the HOA, how you can appeal the notice, how long you have to comply and whether you can get that deadline extended. Several years ago, a friend of mine renting in a townhouse community related a story to me. The condo association only allowed owners to be members, not renters. And it had set up, early in the community’s history, rules that only owners could access the community amenities like the pool and clubhouse. The trouble was, more than 80 percent of the residents were renters -- meaning very few actual residents could use those amenities. My friend took action, attending association meetings every month and speaking each month, until she convinced the association to vote on whether to allow renters to use the amenities. The vote passed easily. I’m relating the above story as an example of what can be accomplished through persistence when it comes to these associations. Talk directly to the HOA, and talk with members of your community about the rain-barrel issue. What’s really bothering the association about your rain barrels? Is it an aesthetic issue? Is it worried about mosquitoes hatching in the rain barrels? There are solutions to the problem -- such as moving the rain barrels out of sight of the street, camouflaging them behind shrubbery and covering the barrels to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. Get out the word, too, about the environmental benefits of using rainwater, as well as the cost savings from doing so. Chances are many homeowners will agree with you -- but not if they don’t know about the issue. HOME TIP: HOAs can be either a headache or a boon to homeowners. Be aware of your HOA’s rules and bylaws, and be a participant in the association to advocate effectively for changes or improvements to your community.

Q: I keep a very nice lawn in the front and back of my house, along with a small kitchen garden and several flowers and shrubs. To water it -- especially in this dry, hot summer -- I try to use “gray” water as well as water collected in rain barrels placed under my downspouts. Recently I received a notice from my homeowners’ association that the rain barrels are against the rules and will have to be removed. How can I convince them that these are not just environmentally friendly, but also the reason I’m able to keep my yard green and growing as required by the HOA rules? -Red-Taped in Roswell, Ga.

● To travel with pleated skirts, use this packing trick: Turn the skirt inside out and straighten all the pleats. Then tape the bottom so that all the pleats are held together. Next, feed the skirt into a leg of pantyhose with the foot cut off. You’ll end up with a nice tube, which you can tuck into the sides of your luggage.

● “When traveling for more than a few days, put your plants in the bathtub with a little bit of water. They’ll soak it up, and you won’t have to have someone come over and water your plants. This will only work for a week or less, though.” -- J.M. in Louisiana ●“I keep grocery lists on my computer. When I am going shopping, I print out the list and fold the paper in half. Then I slip my coupons into the fold. Keeps them handy when I’m shopping.” -- A Reader in Maryland Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

The Cedar Rapids Community Concert Association’s 2012-2013 season has something for everyone, at a price we all can afford. This year, the CRCCA presents its 82nd season with matinee and evening performances at the Concert Hall at College Community, Prairie High School. The Clarinet Swing Kings kick off the season October 13. Dave Bennett, America’s young star of swing clarinet, and his seven piece band salutes all the great clarinet players of the past – Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Pete Fountain, Woody Herman and Jimmy Dorsey – playing their biggest hits. On November 10, the Hornheads combine virtuosic improvisation with sizzling ensemble work to create a truly unique music experience. Their artistry, versatility, musicality, and precision delights audiences, covering American masters from Duke Ellington and Miles Davis to Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Stevie Wonder, and completing their repertoire with dynamic Hornheads’ originals. The Home Free Vocal Band performs January 27, 2013. A perfect fusion of comedy and four-part harmony, Home Free brings the acoustic beauty of “a cappella” singing combined with one astounding vocal percussionist, Home Free has been amazing audiences everywhere since 2000. Don’t miss their new, animated and electrifying experience that is leaving audiences breathless. The season continues March 16, 2013, with the Abrams Brothers. One-half Bob Dylan and one-half Arlo Guthrie, these three young performers capture the down to earth essence of folk legends while injecting their own personality and bluegrass-gospel twist. Their virtuoso playing and effortless harmonies draw on a long family tradition of bluegrass and folk music. Arlo Guthrie says the Abrams Brothers are “way too young to be playing that good.” CRCCA closes the season June 11, 2013, with Jeri Sager. A veteran of Broadway and numerous national tours, Jeri is best known for her portrayal of “Grizabella” in “CATS,” Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award winning musical. Jeri’s golden voice and infectiously joyful stage presence delights audiences of all ages, and her poignant renditions of your favorite songs make you cheer for more. Cedar Rapids’ best family entertainment value for 82 years, the CRCCA offers quality entertainment at a cost everyone can afford. Get five live concerts for one low price - just $40 for single ticket general seating, $55 for single ticket reserved section, or $80 general section seating for the whole family. As a bonus, CRCCA members can also attend five additional live concerts presented by the Waterloo/ Cedar Falls Metro Community Concert Association at the Gallagher-Bluedorn. That’s 10 live concerts for only $40! Join now and save $5! Memberships are just $35, $50, and $70 before August 20.
