by Patricia L. Cook This Tidbits tackles some football stadiums where history was made. Looking only at college stadiums, let’s kick back and learn! • Three of the oldest college football stadiums in the nation are in the northeast, where the oldest institutions of higher learning in this country exist. • The University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field is considered by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) to be the oldest football stadium. Built in 1895, it originally cost $100,000. Rebuilt in 1922, it became the nation’s first two-tiered stadium. Franklin Field was the location of the nation’s first scoreboard in 1895, first football radio broadcast in 1922, and first telecast in 1939. • The horseshoe-shaped Harvard Stadium is claimed on Harvard’s website to be the nation’s oldest stadium. Built in 1903, recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the stadium was the world’s first “massive reinforced concrete structure.” • The first bowl-shaped stadium was the Yale Bowl, opened at Yale University in 1914. When it opened it was the largest stadium in the world since construction of the Roman Coliseum in 80 AD. It is one of four National Historic Landmarks on Yale’s campus.

Of Linn County

• Another California field, Stanford Stadium, made a lot of history in its 84-year life span. In spite of this, it was decided that the best thing for the school, players and fans was to replace the stadium. A new structure opened in 2006. One of the biggest complaints about the old Stanford Stadium was inadequate restroom facilities. The restrooms were enlarged but overall the new stadium was made smaller. The old stadium, built in 1921, had a seating capacity of 86,000, and held as many as 94,000. The new stadium is built for a crowd of 50,000. (Progress?) • Of the big events held at the old Stanford stadium, two standouts were: when Herbert Hoover, a Stanford grad and former football manager, accepted the Republican nomination for president in 1928; and a track meet between the U.S. and the USSR (Soviet Union) in 1962, during the “Cold War,” when political tensions were high. The attendance over two days was 153,000 to watch the friendly competition.

• Another historic stadium dating back to 1913 is Bobby Dodd Stadium at Georgia Tech’s Grant Field. It is the oldest continuouslyused on-campus college football site in the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision, formerly Division I-A). The game has been played at the downtown Atlanta site since 1905. The stadium was the site of the most lopsided game in football history. Georgia Tech defeated Cumberland College 222-0 in 1916! (Remember the 3 stooges?)

FOOTBALL STADIUMS (continued): • American football has a history dating back to the late 1800s, emerging from the European game of rugby. Player and coach at Yale University, Walter Camp, is the “Father of American Football,” recognized for instituting the early rules of the game. • “The Birthplace of Intercollegiate Football,” Rutgers University in New Jersey, held the first inter-collegiate football game in 1869. Rutgers defeated Princeton by two goals. Those players didn’t play in a stadium, but on a field on College Avenue in New Brunswick with a few fans there to see what the game was about. Today, Rutgers has a beautiful stadium that seats 52,454 fans.

Make It a Great Day

• Today, many stadiums are named after corporate sponsors who provide funds for the rights to advertise themselves. One of those is the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University. Built in 1980, it is the only domed stadium in the Northeast. Even though named for Carrier, an air conditioning company, the dome isn’t air conditioned! (Now that's chilling)

We have the ability to make it a great day every time we wake up in the morning. Our reaction to events and circumstances are in our control. Here are a few guidelines that could turn your day around as soon as you open your eyes. These are three things that we can wrap our head, heart, and arms around. •         Head: Today a will commit to learning something new. There is something for me to learn. •         Heart: Today I will commit to a passion in my heart. There is something for me to feel. •         Arms: Today I will commit to doing something that makes a difference. There is something I can do that will benefit somebody else. I will have a great day if I have something to know, something to feel, and something to do.

• The air is thinner (less oxygen) in higher elevations and breathing can be difficult in high energy contests like football. War Memorial Stadium at the University of Wyoming has the highest elevation of any Division I university at 7,770 feet . Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado is even higher with an elevation of 7750 feet. Falcon Stadium, the home field for the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, another high elevation stadium, at 6621 feet above sea level, is flying high.

• The United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, has a unique tradition for its games: a skydiver lands on the field at Michie Stadium holding the football to start the games. • Many college and university teams have other traditions observed in their home stadiums. Some involve songs, music, some a motto, and many involve mascots.

• Aloha Stadium, the home stadium for the University of Hawaii, is owned by the state of Hawaii, and hosts many events other than football. The Aloha Stadium Swapmeet & Marketplace, held every week on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays should be on every visitor’s itinerary. • Many people refer to the “big house” as prison or jail. However, in football “The Big House” is the largest stadium in the country, home of University of Michigan football, with a capacity of 109,901. One of the “big” stories about this stadium is that when it was under construction in 1926, an underground spring and moist, quicksandlike soil swallowed a crane! It is still there, under the stadium!

• Kinnick Stadium, named after 1939 Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick. With a capacity of 70,585, Kinnick ranks as one of the 20 largest college-owned stadiums in the nation. • Kinnick Stadium, formerly known as Iowa Stadium, is the home stadium of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes in Iowa City, Iowa. It opened as Iowa Stadium in 1929; prior to that time, Iowa played its home games at Iowa Field. Iowa Stadium was renamed Kinnick Stadium in 1972 • A $89 million renovation of Kinnick was completed in August 2006. That two-year project resulted in a long-list of projects that improved the game-day experience for everyone from the student-athletes and coaches on the playing field to the fans in the stands. Scoreboards featuring state-of-the-art audio and video, team locker rooms, increased concessions stands and restroom facilities, a new press box with indoor and outdoor club seating, and private suites, along with the creation of a main entrance • The playing surface at Kinnick was changed to Field Turf for the 2009 season. That project included installation of a new drainage system below the playing surface. • The only two players to have their numbers retired by the Hawkeye football program are Nile Kinnick #24 and Cal Jones #62. Kinnick won the University of Iowa's only Heisman Trophy in 1939, while Jones was the first AfricanAmerican to win the Outland Trophy in 1955. Neither Kinnick, or Jones saw the retirement of their numbers, having died long before, Kinnick's number 24 was retired in 1972, 30 years after his death in a training accident in the Caribbean (the same year that Iowa Stadium changed its name to Kinnick Stadium), and Jones number 62 was retired in 1985, 30 years after his death in a plane crash near Hope, British Columbia, Canada.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was Canadian American educator Laurence J. Peter who made the following sage observation: “You can always tell a real friend: When you’ve made a fool of yourself, he doesn’t feel you’ve done a permanent job.” ● In Murfreesboro, Tenn., it is illegal to keep indoor furniture outdoors. (sign country) ● Mike Edwards, one of the founding members of the British band Electric Light Orchestra, met with an untimely death decades after he left the group. In 2010, as Edwards was driving in the rural southwest of England, a farmer lost control of a 1,300-pound bale of hay. This wheel-shaped bale rolled down a hill and over a hedge, and just happened to smash into the van that Edwards was driving.

● The humble honeybee is the official insect of 17 states. ● In 2008 a company called Defense Devices, based in Jackson, Tenn., introduced a new item: a stun gun disguised as a tube of lipstick. The same company offers a ring that will shoot pepper spray. ● You might be surprised to learn that the giant bullfrogs of South Africa have sometimes been known to attack lions. ● The tuatara is a lizard that can be found in New Zealand. Its claim to fame? It has a third eye, on the top of its head. Thought for the Day: “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.” -- Alfred Hitchcock (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play." The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, "Okay, now concentrate... what is two plus two?" The player thought for a moment and then he answered, "4?" "Did you say 4?!?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he got it right. At that, all the other players on the team began screaming, "Come on coach, give him another chance!"

HEALTH IN AGING The American Geriatrics Society Foundation has created a new website just for seniors: Health in Aging. Everything on the site has been written by experts in senior health. That’s good to know, because half of us over the age of 65 have at least three chronic medical conditions. Here are a few highlights: --The A-to-Z glossary gives easy-tounderstand information on a whole alphabet of health conditions. --You’ll find information about problems that come with aging, news on the latest information about aging and a link on finding a geriatrics health care professional. --One of the most important sections is on preventing drug interactions. Drugs work differently on seniors, and it’s not always possible to know exactly how an individual will respond to a drug, because most clinical trials are done on healthy, young adults. We seniors have a different metabolism, less muscle mass, and age-related variables that can change the rate of absorption. Often, we have multiple medical conditions that can change how a drug will work, especially in combination. --When it comes to exploring the different types of living arrangements open to us when we need help with daily living, the site outlines assisted living, home care, nursing homes and community-based help, such as adult day care. --Guidelines for making our wishes known are written in easy-tounderstand language with all the legal terms explained for advance directives (living wills, durable power of attorney for health care and Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment), endof-life care, guardianship and informed consent. Health in Aging ( is worth exploring and saving for future reference. Reminder: Have you had your flu shot yet? Ask your doctor if you should have one, and the pneumonia shot as well.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

● On Oct. 13, 1775, the Continental Congress authorizes construction and administration of the first American naval force. Esek Hopkins was appointed the first commander-in-chief of the Continental Navy. His first fleet consisted of seven ships: two 24-gun frigates, two 14-gun brigs and three schooners. ● On Oct. 12, 1786, a lovesick Thomas Jefferson composes the first of many romantic letters to a married woman named Maria Cosway. In 1789, his letters grew less frequent. She continued to write to him and vented her frustration at his growing aloofness. After her husband died, Cosway moved to a village in Italy to open a convent school for girls. ● On Oct. 11, 1793, the death toll from a yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia hits 100. By the time it ended, 5,000 people were dead. A vaccine prevents yellow fever in much of the world, though 20,000 people still die every year from the disease. ● On Oct. 14, 1944, German Gen. Erwin Rommel, nicknamed “the Desert Fox,” is given the option of facing a public trial for treason, as a co-conspirator in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, or taking cyanide. He chose the latter. The German government gave Rommel a state funeral. His death was attributed to war wounds. ● On Oct. 8, 1956, New York Yankees right-hander Don Larsen pitches the first no-hitter in the history of the World Series. Even better, it was a perfect game -- that is, there were no runs, no hits and no errors, and no batter reached first base. ● On Oct. 10, 1985, the hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro reaches a dramatic climax when U.S. Navy F-14 fighters intercept an Egyptian airliner attempting to fly the Palestinian hijackers to freedom. On Oct. 7, four heavily armed terrorists had hijacked the Achille Lauro and 320 crewmembers and 80 passengers. ● On Oct. 9, 1992, a 28-pound bowlingball-sized meteorite lands on an orange 1980 Chevy Malibu in Peekskill, N.Y. Scientists have determined that it came from the inner edge of the main asteroid belt in space, between Jupiter and Mars. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

A cool place to go on a hot day is underground. One of the “coolest,” (as in really amazing!) is Carlsbad Caverns National Park in Carlsbad, New Mexico. The temperature underground at Carlsbad Caverns is 56°F all the time. • Jim White is given credit for being the first “explorer” of the caverns in 1898. He was a cowboy who began to explore the caves as a teenager. He descended 60 feet into the caverns using a handmade wire ladder. He tried to convince locals that the area was special for more than a decade. • Jim was the guide for numerous people to see the caverns, including Robert Holley from the General Land Office, who surveyed and mapped the area and Ray V. Davis, who photographed the Scenic Rooms and Big Room. Davis’ photos appeared in the New York Times in 1923 and stimulated much interest in the underground wonders. On October 25, 1923, Carlsbad Cave National Monument was established. Congress designated it as a national park in 1930. • Jim White is unofficially remembered as “Mr. Carlsbad Caverns” for his exploration, guide services and promotion of the caverns for the public to enjoy. • Beneath the canyons, rocky slopes, and land of many cacti, grasses, shrubs and occasional trees, of the southern New Mexico landscape, there are more than 117 known caves that are part of Carlsbad Caverns. The caves were formed by the work of sulfuric acid, not water, dissolving much of the limestone rock of the area. • For the first couple of years, a guano (originally used for hauling bat dung) bucket was used for entrance into the Caverns. • In 1925, a staircase from the natural entrance to the Bat Cave was installed with funds donated from the Carlsbad, New Mexico Chamber of Commerce. It was only a matter of time before many tourists wanted to descend into the caverns to explore. • There are many “rooms” inside the caverns with different formations abounding. Scientists call them “speleothems.” The carrot-like formations hanging down from the ceiling are called stalactites. Stalagmites are the forms that come from the bottom, reaching up. There are also wondrous formations called columns, popcorn, soda straws, draperies and helictites. • From mid-April to mid-October there are thousands of bats that call Carlsbad Caverns home and rangers give “bat flight” talks each evening. It is estimated that approximately 400,000 Brazilian, more commonly called Mexican, bats “hang” around the caves and fly out each evening to eat tons of bugs. In spite all you have heard and seen in movies and books, bats do not attack people. When the bats re-enter in the mornings, they can be seen diving from all directions at speeds that reach 25 miles per hour or more! • While the Big Room is a “must see” for anyone visiting Carlsbad, and has elevator access, there are many guided tours that are accessible to healthy individuals. The Natural Entrance is great for people who can handle the 750 feet deep descent on a steep, narrow switchback tail. • The discoveries in Carlsbad Caverns National Park continue as cave scientists, called speleologists, study, expand and share their knowledge with curious nonscientists who enjoy learning more about what lies beneath the earth.

From the leather head harnesses of the late 19th century to today’s modern football helmets, safety has been the key to the design and improvements that have occurred. • The earliest football helmets had almost no padding. They were made of leather and did little to soften blows to the head. • An Annapolis, Maryland shoemaker was credited with the creation of the first helmet, made for Admiral Joseph Mason Reeves. Admiral Reeves had been advised by a Navy doctor that it would be “instant insanity” and he would be risking death if he endured another kick to his head. • Reeves wore that first helmet in 1893 in an Army versus Navy football game. Helmets did not actually become mandatory until 1939 for college games and in 1943 for the National Football League (NFL). • The man who received the most credit, in the 1890s, for the invention of the football helmet was George Barclay, a halfback for Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. ● Monday $5 burger baskets 11-8 Barclay was very concerned about developing ● Tuesday $6.99 tacos 11-8 “cauliflower ears.” “An acquired $4.00 well Margaritas 11-8 deformity of the ●outer ear,” cauliflower ear, also known Thursday, $5 Dozen Wings 4-9 pm as boxer’s ear or wrestler’s ear, is caused by ● Sunday All Day Happy Hour! blunt trauma to the ear. The blood supply ● All Games In High Definition TVS to the outer ear is disrupted and the skin shrivels and folds, causing a cauliflower-like appearance. Nicknamed “The Rose” for his concern about his looks, Barclay didn’t want to harm his appearance. • Barclay found a local harness maker who designed a leather helmet. Known as a “head harness,” these helmets were fitted specifically for an individual player, with three thick leather straps. • By 1915 big changes were happening with helmets. They were becoming more spherical and included padding, straps and earpieces to better protect the head. • In 1917, Bob Zuppke, football coach at the University of Illinois, contributed to football helmet design by adding space between the inside of the leather helmet and the player’s head. He added more leather that helped absorb the impact of hits. • Vern McMillan followed Zuppke by updating helmets with a rubber-covered wire face mask which helped to reduce the number of broken teeth and noses. Face masks are continually updated to provide protection for the players. One design used Lucite. Those didn’t work out well, as they became brittle and would shatter when players were hit! • A significant recognition of the importance of football helmets didn’t happen because of safety. Fred Gehrke, a player for the Los Angeles Rams, started something when he painted the first logo on a helmet in 1947. Gehrke was an art major and after getting approval from his coach, Bob Snyder, and then team owner, Dan Reeves, he got the “go-ahead” to spend his summer painting. • In the summer of 1948, Gehrke painted 75 leather helmets blue and then, freehand renderings of ram’s horns in gold. He did the job for $1 per helmet, which covered the cost of the paint. For two years he carried blue and gold paint to the games and touched up the helmets after each game. • The Riddell sporting good company started baking Gehrke’s design into plastic helmets in 1949 and then shortly thereafter more teams wanted logos on their helmets. • It wasn’t until the 1950s that plastic helmets with padding were introduced. Plastic helmets created different problems when players started lowering their heads and using them as projectiles on the opposing players! New rules and changes continued to protect players – and changes are continually made in today’s leagues as well.

Lawn Care Safety Q: I was working in my yard and noticed my neighbor’s landscaper using a weed trimmer without any protection from flying debris. Gas-powered professional weed trimmers can be quite powerful and sure enough, almost as soon as I saw him, he struck an area that contained a bit of gravel. A stone flew up and hit him in the eye, resulting in a trip to the hospital and several days out of work. Please remind your readers to wear safety equipment when using power tools and lawncare equipment. -- Josh G., Indianapolis A: That’s a good point, and one well worth paying attention to. Often, we’re in a hurry to just finish up with the yard work. Or, it’s too hot or too aggravating to put on safety gear like impact-resistant goggles and sturdy gloves. But spending a couple extra dollars to purchase the right equipment and safety gear, and taking a few extra seconds to put it on, can prevent injuries and even save your life. In fact, there are a number of preventive measures to take before starting yard work. The folks at Topical Biomedics (which, handily, sells a pain relief and healing cream for those post-yard work sore muscles) offer a few additional tips: --Before doing any heavy yard work, warm up for at least 10 minutes with some lighter tasks. --Cover any exposed skin with sunscreen to prevent sunburn. --Sturdy gloves will protect your hands from blisters, scratches, insect bites, poison ivy, the heat from gas-powered, handheld lawn-care tools, and flying debris. --Sturdy boots with slip-resistant soles are critical safety gear when working around any power tool. --Eye protection -- goggles specifically made to resist high-impact strikes -- will protect you from flying debris, accidental chemical spills, and many eye irritants and allergens. --Face protection: a dust or filter mask should be worn when spreading fertilizer or spraying yard chemicals, and can be a big help to those with seasonal allergies while doing yard work. --Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to protect skin from scratches caused by low-hanging tree branches and other plants. --Wear noise-reducing earmuffs, a hard hat and a steel mesh face visor when using a chainsaw. HOME TIP: Always give your lawn a quick walk through before mowing, and remove debris like fallen limbs, toys and rocks that could damage your equipment or injure you.

● Use self-stick notes to organize your errands. Use a note for each location, with instructions or shopping lists on each. Then put the notes in order: e.g., drop kids off at Grandma’s, shoe store, hardware store, grocery store, home, etc. You will be less likely to forget a stop, and you can make the best use of your time and gas! ● Two tips for sewing on buttons: First, for pants buttons, use unwaxed dental floss. It’s incredibly strong and can take a lot of abuse. Second, slip a pin between the button and the fabric before sewing on. When you’re finished, remove the pin. The button now has some room behind it, and it will last longer. ● “This is a tip for us singletons. I love whipped topping on my hot chocolate, but it doesn’t always last in my fridge. I buy a tub of it, and spoon mug-size dollops on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. When the sheet is full, I freeze them. They can be peeled off easily and slipped in a container or plastic bag. When I make my hot chocolate, I plop in one straight from the freezer. It takes only minutes to soften and melt. And it’s delicious!” -F.D. in Michigan ● “If you cut the entire top and one of the top corners off a cereal box, then tape the bottom closed, it’s almost the same as the magazine holders they sell in stores. I covered mine with fancy paper. I keep it in my kitchen for cooking magazines.” -R.R. in Indiana ● Gifts that school-age kids can make: Bookmarks! Cut strips of cardstock into bookmark lengths. Have your child decorate one side and write a nice message on the other. Laminate if possible. A great gift from your child.
