TIDBITS® OBSERVES

NOW, THAT’S CORNY! by Patricia L. Cook This Tidbits examines corn, the No. 1 field crop in North America. Corn is grown on every continent in the world except Antarctica. • Corn originated in present-day Mexico and is known also by the name “maize.” Botanically, corn is a member of the grass family. Cornstalks can grow from 2 to 20 feet high, with the average being about 8 feet. • The ear or cob is the female part of the plant and houses up to 1,000 seeds called kernels. Each ear is enveloped in a whorl of leaves called husks. Ears occur along the plant’s main stalk. The tassel is the male part of the plant and occurs at the top or end of a stalk. From the tassel comes pollen that fertilizes eggs in the ear that eventually produces the kernels. Wondering why they are called ears? • If you think “ears” of corn are called “ears” because they stick out like human ears, you are not alone. Many people think that, but it is wrong. The term “ear” comes from an old English measurement called an ear of grain. It is related to the Dutch word, “aar” and the German word, “aehre.” Also, the Gothic word for husk of corn is “ahs.” turn the page for more!

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR JIM COYLE Life’s Biggest Competitor

Out-running and out-distancing an opponent doesn’t mean you ran your best race. In order to be your best you must compete with yourself. Life’s real contest is in the stadium of our own mind. A winner is a loser if he loses the battle within himself. A loser is a winner if he conquers the battle within himself. Our true victory isn’t on the field, it is in the head. Victory over others may be the very thing that contributes to the winner’s demise. Here are some things to help you win the battle: •         Lose the arrogance: always look to others as better than yourself •         Lose the independence: it’s not about you it’s about the team and the cause •         Lose the critical spirit: we must build each other up not tear each other down •         Use every experience in life to mature and complete you

Bertram Sets Homecoming Day, August 25 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bertram, just off Highway 13 Past and present residents of the Bertram community are invited to a day of food, music, games and fellowship. A free picnic style lunch served from 11 to 1. Children’s games and activities are also part of the day, including a bounce house, “Papa Balloon” comedy and magic, and lawn games. Live traditional music from area musicians will be featured, plus a performance from the CR Spirits children’s dance group. Food and activities are free,with freewill donations accepted to support future Homecoming Day festivities. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for comfort. The event is a revival of annual festivals held in the town of Bertram in the early to mid 1900s. Event organizers encourage people who grew up in the area to bring photos, yearbooks and other memorabilia to share with friends and neighbors.

• About 40 percent of the world’s corn is grown in the United States. Over half of the U.S. corn grows in four states: Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska and Minnesota. The “Corn Belt” in the United States is typically defined as the above four states plus Ohio, Indiana, Missouri and Kansas. The corn-growing region has relatively level land, adequate rainfall and rich, fertile soil. • For the last two decades Iowa has produced the largest corn crop of any state. Actually Iowa produces more corn than most countries. For example, Iowa grows about three times as much as corn as Mexico, even though the corn consumption per person there is almost three times higher than in the United States. • Approximately 90 percent of the corn in the United States is grown on family farms. Irrigation is usually unnecessary, with 87 percent of the corn grown using only natural rainfall. • There are five varieties of corn: 1) field corn, which is used for livestock feed, fuel and industrial products; 2) popcorn; 3) foodgrade corn, used for numerous food products like corn bread and tortillas; 4) sweet corn, the best to eat; and 5) seed corn, grown for kernels to be used for the next year’s crop. • Most things in nature that have rows or lines tend to grow in even numbers. This comes about with cell division; one cell dividing into two and continuing evenly. Corn kernels always grow in an even number of rows. An average ear of corn has 800 kernels in 16 rows. • One of the primary uses of field corn is animal feed. Approximately 40 percent of the U. S. corn crop is used as livestock and poultry feed.

A clown calls his friend and asks, “Can you help me?” “Sure,” he replies. “What’s the problem?” “Well, I started a really hard jigsaw puzzle and I can’t even find the edge pieces.” “Look on the box,” the friend says. “There’s always a picture of what the puzzle is.” “It’s a big rooster,” the clown said. The friend says “Okay, put the corn flakes back in the box.”

NOW, THAT’S CORNY! (continued):

• Included in this 40 percent is the production of distiller’s grain, a co-product from ethanol production that is a great supplement for animal feed. • Another use of field corn is ethanol production. In 2010, 36.5 percent of the U.S. corn crop was used to produce ethanol. Ethanol is a clean alternative fuel that is blended with 70 percent of the gasoline produced in the United States and comprises about 4.6 percent of total U.S. gasoline consumption. • Lastly, field corn is used for a variety of industrial products, including bioplastics, fabrics, crayons, compostable tableware and food containers. • Popcorn has been part of American cuisine since before the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492. In fact, research indicates that likely ancestors of Native Americans enjoyed popcorn before the birth of Christ. • Nutritionally, popcorn is a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates yet low in fat and calories, making it a great betweenmeal snack. Air-popped popcorn contains 31 calories per cup, oil-popped popcorn contains 55 calories per cup, and lightly buttered popcorn contains 133 calories per cup. Three cups of popped popcorn equals one serving from the grain group. • Reports in March 2012 from a study conducted at the University of Scranton indicated that the crunchy hull of popcorn is rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that prevent damage to cells and may have disease-fighting properties. • By the way, when popcorn pops, it forms two basic shapes: snowflake and mushroom. Movie theater and ballpark popcorn are snowflake-shaped because this form looks and pops bigger. Mushroom popcorn is used more for candy because it doesn’t crumble.

NOW, THAT’S CORNY! (continued):

• Sweet corn differs from other corn varieties in that it is genetically distinct and accumulates twice the amount of sugar as field corn. The sought-after taste of sweet corn is best experienced by eating it directly off the cob. The Papoon variety of sweet corn, the first variety acquired by European settlers in North America, can be traced back to the Iroquois tribe of Native Americans in 1779. • Constantine, Michigan, proclaims itself the “Seed Corn Capital of the World.” Reportedly, 20 percent of the seed corn production in the United States occurs in greater Constantine and the surrounding counties. • Food-grade corn comes generally as either white corn or yellow corn. Yellow corn is more prevalent, but with the swelling Latino population in the United States and the fact that white corn is preferred for Latino recipes (for example, Mexican tortillas), the demand for food-grade white corn is increasing. • Corn is one of the most pervasive food ingredients in the world today. Consider this list of corn-containing foods that is significant but far from complete: baking mixes, baking powders, cornbread, corn flakes, Fritos, grits, hominy, margarine, popcorn, tortillas. Consider also the many non-food items that contain corn: aspirin, cough syrups, envelopes, gelatin capsules, powders, stamps, starched clothing, talcums, toothpaste, soaps and vitamins. Corn is actually an ingredient in more than 3,000 grocery products! • There are many corn festivals across the United States, mostly in August and September. There are even some corn festivals in Canada. Probably one of the biggest and longest-running annual festivals is the Mendota Sweet Corn Festival in Mendota, Illinois. In its 65th year, the festival serves free corn that has been cooked “with the help of a vintage steam engine.”

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It’s not known who made the following sage observation: “Arguing about whether the glass is half-full or half-empty misses the point, which is this: The bartender cheated you.”

● Do you suffer from cacodemonomania? If you believe that you are possessed by an evil spirit, you do. ● The world’s smallest mammal can be found only in Thailand and Myanmar. Weighing about as much as a dime, Kitti’s hog-nosed bat is sometimes called the bumblebee bat due to its diminutive size.

● At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. At the top of Mount Everest, though, the lower air pressure reduces the boiling point to 156 degrees.

Alcohol Pros and Cons There aren’t many topics in research that have as conflicting results as the consumption of alcohol. Is it good for us? Bad? When it comes to bone density in senior women, the jury is no longer out. New research shows that moderate alcohol intake prevents rapid “turnover” of bone. Turnover is the ebb and flow of bone growth -- except that in osteoporosis there is more overall loss of bone than gain. One or two drinks a day a few times a week appear to have a significant result in stopping that turnover. In one of the tests done by researchers, bone density was checked in women who were moderate drinkers. The women were told to stop any drinking for two weeks, at which time bone density was checked again. What researchers found was more bone turnover -- or loss -after two short weeks. When the women resumed moderate drinking, within one day the bone turnover rate went back to normal. Their conclusion is that alcohol protects bone growth like estrogen, which is missing in post-menopausal women. However, alcohol consumption has its drawbacks, depending on the research. In a nearly 30-year study, alcohol consumption of 3 to 6 drinks per week was linked with a small increase in the risk of breast cancer. The more alcohol consumed, the higher the risk. In another study, light alcohol consumption was associated with a decrease in cancer risk, but moderate and heavy consumption showed an increase in risk. Still another study concluded that moderate alcohol consumption lowered the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Which study to believe? If you’re not sure, ask your doctor if drinking alcohol a few times a week could benefit your health -- or not.

GATEWAY ARCH

MOMENTS IN TIME

The History Channel ● On Aug. 24, 79, after centuries of dormancy, Mount Vesuvius erupts in southern Italy, burying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. In the 18th century, the cities were rediscovered and excavated, providing an unprecedented archaeological record of the everyday life of an ancient civilization. ● On Aug. 25, 1835, the first in a series of six articles announcing the supposed discovery of life on the moon appears in the New York Sun newspaper. The hoax articles offered vivid description: enormous amethyst crystals and lush vegetation, as well as animals such as unicorns, two-legged beavers and furry, winged humanoids resembling bats. ● On Aug. 23, 1902, pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer, who changed the way Americans prepare food by advocating the use of standardized measurements in recipes, opens Miss Farmer’s School of Cookery in Boston. ● On Aug. 20, 1920, the owners of four Ohio League teams -- the Akron Pros, Canton Bulldogs, Cleveland Indians and Dayton Triangles -- meet to form a new professional football league. Football star Jim Thorpe was nominated as president of the new league. ● On Aug. 21, 1959, President Dwight Eisenhower signs a proclamation admitting Hawaii into the Union as the 50th state. The president also issued an order for an American flag featuring 50 stars arranged in staggered rows. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

As part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri, the Gateway Arch is the tallest national monument in the United States. At 630 feet, the arch is twice the height of the Statue of Liberty. • The base width is also 630 feet. The foundations for the arch were sunk 60 feet into the ground. It is built to withstand earthquakes and to sway up to 18 inches in 150 mph winds. • Opened in 1965, the striking stainless steel structure offers spectacular views from the observation room at the top. Eero Saarinen, an architect from Detroit who had emmigrated from Finland with his family at the age of 12, won the competition for the honor to design the monument to westward movement. Thomas Jefferson’s vision to spread freedom and democracy from “sea to shining sea” was the inspiration for Saarinen’s design. • The city of St. Louis was quite significant in the westward movement, considered the “Gateway to the West.” The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial is a memorial to Jefferson’s role in expanding the country to the west. The park consists of the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Westward Expansion and St. Louis’ Old Courthouse. • Construction of the Arch occurred from February 12, 1963, until the last section was put in place on October 28, 1965. The cost was $13 million. • More stainless steel was used to build the Arch than for any other project in history: Nine hundred tons. The Gateway Arch weighs 17,246 tons. • One of the most fascinating things about the Gateway Arch is the ride to the top. The two one-of-a-kind trams that go up each leg to take visitors to the observation room are amazing. Dick Bowser, a highly intelligent man with no college degree, conceived the idea for the trams in two short weeks. • Bowser’s design had to meet the criteria to transport 3,500 people in an eight-hour day or up to 11,000 people in a 14-hour day. The conveyance system could not distort the exterior of the Arch. • Bowser’s tram system consists of eight capsules linked in tandem for each leg of the Arch. Each capsule seats five people and rotates approximately 155 degrees during the trip to the top. Each tram completes the trip to the top of the Arch and back in 9-10 minutes, including time for loading and unloading. As the capsules go up and down, the weight of the passengers helps to keep the capsules upright. When the trams are running near capacity, 400-450 passengers per hour experience the unique ride to the top of the Arch. • At the top of the Arch, the 16 windows on each side are small at 7 inches x 27 inches, hinged and locked. The room is small as well but accommodates 100-160 people. The views are breathtaking, with the Mississippi River and the state of Illinois to the east and the city of St. Louis and state of Missouri to the west. • The grounds surrounding the Gateway Arch and the rest of the park were carefully designed with the buildings. Renowned landscape architect Dan Kiley worked with Dick Bowser from the beginning to make the park a reality.

Sometimes called paddleboats, sternwheelers, showboats, steamboats or riverboats, large boats propelled by steam engines revolutionized river travel years ago. The few still around today either operate as excursion boats or casinos moored at river banks. • Many people incorrectly credit Robert Fulton with inventing the steamboat. Even though Fulton made great contributions to steamboat travel, John Fitch is the steamboat’s true inventor. • Following the invention of the steam engine by James Watt in 1769, many industrialists and entrepreneurs saw the engine’s potential and sought to adapt it to a variety of applications. One application envisioned by John Fitch was propelling large boats across a water surface. On August 22, 1787, Fitch successfully ran his 45-foot steampowered vessel on the Delaware River. Among those witnessing this event were members of the Constitutional Convention. ● Monday $5 burger baskets 11-8 • Fitch’s contribution to steamboat ● Tuesday $6.99 tacos 11-8 technology from 1785 to 1796 included $4.00 well Margaritas 11-8 the ●design, construction and operation Thursday, $5 Dozen Wings 4-9 pm of four ●steamboats, including the one first Sunday All Day Happy Hour! successfully run on the Delaware River, ● All Games In High Definition TVS plus the first U.S. patent for a steamboat in 1791. • Although Fitch built a steamboat that successfully carried passengers and freight between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Burlington, New Jersey, he never proved his vessels to be economically viable. That proof belonged to Robert Fulton. • As a young adult, Robert Fulton initially was an artist and later became a designer and builder of things facilitating water travel, including canals, canal boats and locks to raise water levels in canals. In 1801, he built the first successful submarine, the Nautilus, which could descend to a depth of 25 feet. • In 1802, at the urging of Robert Livingston, U.S. minister to France, Fulton turned his attention to steamboats. After two steamboat trials in France, one a failure and one a success, Fulton returned to America in 1806 and proceeded to build his famed steamboat the Clermont that successfully plied the Hudson River in New York. The Clermont’s first significant trip was from New York to Albany, a distance of approximately 150 miles. The Clermont left New York on August 17, 1807, and completed the voyage in 30 hours, including an overnight stop. • The first voyage by the Clermont was met by the public with suspicion. Many referred to the boat as “Fulton’s Folly” due to its unusually long length and the smoke and fire associated with the vessel’s newfangled steam engine. Many thought it would blow up or sink on its first voyage; they were wrong! In fact, because Fulton wisely paid attention to passenger comfort, the Clermont became a very profitable vessel for transporting passengers to destinations on the Hudson River. Fulton subsequently formed and led a company offering services on six major rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. • Following Fulton’s success, steamboats became a prime transporter of passengers and goods across the country. For example, in the steamboat port of New Orleans, 20 steamboat arrivals in 1814 increased to a whopping 1,200 arrivals by 1834. • The steamboat era in the United States continued until the 1870s, when railroads started supplanting the steamboat as the preferred transporter of passengers and goods.

Shower Head a Leaky Mess

A: Check the shower head attachment points for any visible damage first. A visibly cracked hose or plastic attachment piece often means the entire unit needs to be replaced. However, if you can’t see any damage, you may be able to fix this with just the twist of an adjustable wrench. To avoid damaging or scratching the connector nut -- which attaches the shower unit to the inlet pipe (sometimes called a goose-neck pipe) -- wrap a soft rag around the nut. Use an adjustable wrench that can fit comfortably around the connector nut, and gently turn the nut clockwise just slightly -- one-quarter turn at most. Unwrap the rag from around the connector nut and turn on the shower to see if the leak has diminished or stopped. If it needs more adjustment, replace the rag and gently turn the connector nut another quarter-turn. Keep in mind that turning the connector too tight may make the leak worse; that’s one reason to make such small incremental adjustments. Another reason is to avoid damaging the connector nut or the seal. If you notice cracks or other damage to the shower unit, in most cases you’ll need to replace the entire unit (except for some more expensive shower heads, which often offer replacement parts from the manufacturer). To replace the unit, head to the home-improvement store and pick out a shower head of your choice, along with some Teflon tape. Back home, turn off the water feed to the shower. If you can’t find the nearest shutoff valve, turn off water to the house. Unscrew the old shower sprayer unit from the inlet pipe, using your pliers and turning counterclockwise to loosen and remove it. Clean away any old sealant, tape or gunky buildup from the threads of the inlet pipe. Unwrap the new shower unit and take a look at the connection and accompanying hardware. Connectors that come with a rubber washer generally need to be tightly screwed on using your pliers; connectors that don’t generally just need to be hand-tightened. Now, take your new Teflon tape. Wrap it carefully around the threads of the inlet pipe, creating a single layer around the threads from the end of the pipe to just below the end of the threads. (The tape will push upward when you screw on the new shower head, so leave a bit of space.) Press the tape into the threads with your fingers. Carefully line up the connector of the new shower unit with the pipe and screw on, turning clockwise. Use your hand to tighten the connection; if you need to tighten more, protect the finish of the connector by wrapping a rag around it and tighten in small increments using pliers. Turn on water to the shower to test the connection, adjusting slightly if needed until the connection no longer leaks. HOME TIP: Don’t have a set of pliers that fit your pipes? Look for channel locking pliers, which can open to a range of widths to fit varying widths of pipe.

NOW HERE’S A TIP By JoAnn Derson

● Lunchbox tip: Assemble your sandwich the night before (without veggies). Wrap in waxed paper and freeze. Add veggies and a condiment packet in a separate bag. Your sandwich will thaw by lunchtime and will stay cold! ● “Plant banana skins in your garden, just below the surface. They rot quickly and provide nutrients for growing plants.” -A.R. in Ohio

725 North Center Point Rd., Hiawatha, IA 319-365-6901

● “My girls get a little crazy with backto-school clothes shopping -- they want everything! Before we go, we pull out all the clothes they have and assess their needs. We keep a count of shirts, skirts, shorts and pants so we don’t overbuy and have too many. They also make outfits out of what they have, so we can see if anything needs to be bought for that purpose. And undergarments and socks are replenished first, so they get included in the budget!” -- S.S. in South Carolina ● “Always keep two needles threaded, one with black and one with white. When you have a rip, a button comes off or a hem comes out of your clothes, and you are in a hurry, you can use one of these for a quick repair.” -- J.R. in Virginia ● “This is a great tip for the upcoming school year. It’s hard to keep track of names of classmates anyway, but trying to remember who’s who from last year or the year before can be impossible. When class pictures come out, I make a photocopy and write the names of the children on the copy, right next to the child in the photo. I keep the photocopy handy throughout the school year and then file it away later with the actual photo. Our family has been doing this for almost 10 years, and it makes for great recall when looking back.” -- Y.O. in Utah Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

For Life Most animals have more than one mate throughout their life. The bald eagle is one of the few exceptions. They generally mate for life. Courting begins for bald eagles in early April. During this time, pairs of eagles may be seen flying high into the air, diving down and locking talons. Once they find a mate, bald eagles stay with that mate until they die, unless that mate cannot bear young. Then they might look for a mate that can. After all, having eaglets is an important part of an eagle’s life.
