Imagine the astonishment when early travelers heading West happened upon one of the largest canyons in the world. Whoa! Put on the brakes as we explore the Grand Canyon, one of the most popular tourist sites on earth.

• Grand Canyon National Park is 277 miles (446 km) long, 5,000 feet (1524 m) deep and about 18 miles (29 km) wide. Encompassing 1,218,375 acres (493059 ha) of northern Arizona, it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and hosts around 5 million guests each year, more than any other U.S. National Park.

Reputation • 20 Years in Business • Certified/Experienced Staff • Facilities throughout the United States

• According to archaeologists, the Desert Archaic, Anasazi and Pueblo Indians were the earliest people to live in the Grand Canyon region. Others explored the region in the 1500-1800s, with probably the most significant being Major John Wesley Powell, a one-armed Civil War veteran. (He lost his arm in the battle of Shiloh.) He and his group of ten men explored the area in several expeditions from 18691872.

• Baby rattlers are born fully equipped with poisonous venom and teeth. They are born with a “pre-button” for the rattler that is shed with its skin making way for “buttons” that develop. Rattling occurs when they grow more buttons and shake them together – at the speed of about 60 or more times per second! • Approximately 47 reptile species are found in the park. Ten are common along the Colorado River in the bottom of the canyon. Have you heard of gila monsters and chuckwallas? They are the two largest lizards in the area.

• Family owned and operated for over 35 years

• The area was established as a Forest Preserve in 1893, Grand Canyon Game Preserve in 1906, a National Monument in 1908 and Grand Canyon National Park in 1919, three years after the National Park Service was created.

www.themattresscenterfl.com THE GRAND CANYON (continued): • With the Grand Canyon’s large expanse of land there is great environmental variety. The elevation ranges from 1,200 feet (366 m) near Lake Mead to 9,165 feet (2793 m) above sea level at the north rim. Scientists have identified five life zones in the park: Lower Sonoran, Upper Sonoran, Transition, Canadian and Hudsonian. The best way to think of this is that if you traveled from Mexico to Canada, you would see lots of variations in the ecosystem, but you can see the same variations within Grand Canyon National Park! So from desert plants to mountain trees – they’re all there! From the north rim to the canyon floor, the temperature can vary up to 35° F. (19.4°C) • Bears, mountain lions, weasels, bald eagles and many other animal species are found in the park. Keep in mind that Grand Canyon National Park is home to six species of rattlesnakes, including the most common Grand Canyon pink rattlesnake that blends in with the canyon terrain. If you go hiking on the many miles of trails, watch your step and listen carefully!

• The Grand Canyon Railway began as an extension of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. In 1901, the Santa Fe extended a branch to the south rim of the Grand Canyon, and hotel and restaurant developer Fred Harvey entered the scene. The Fred Harvey Company, with railroad architect Charles Whittlessey’s design expertise, built the El Tovar Hotel 20 feet (6 m) from the edge of the south rim in 1905. The beautiful, rugged building sometimes called “the most expensively constructed and appointed log house in America” is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. • When automobiles became popular in the 1920s, the Santa Fe Railway lost a lot of riders. It struggled until closing in 1968. Over the years after its closing, the park became more and more congested with vehicles. The branch line was reopened in 1991 and is operated by the Grand Canyon Railway. The nostalgic train rides are more popular than ever today. • Another architectural beauty built by the Fred Harvey Company in the Grand Canyon is the Desert View Watchtower. Architect Mary Colter designed the structure to mimic an Anasazi Indian watchtower. It was dedicated in 1933 and provides an excellent view of the canyon along East Rim Drive. • In 2008, a couple of “typo vigilantes” used whiteout and permanent markers to correct mistakes on a sign on the watchtower. Now, typos are annoying, and we should all strive to be grammatically correct at all times, but don’t we need to respect historic property? Yes, the two were banned from all national parks for a year, had to pay $3,035 for repairs and are banned from modifying any public signs. • Many structures in Grand Canyon National Park are historic and listed on the National Historic Register. A new, modern structure was added to the park in 2007. If you are afraid of heights, this is probably not for you. But, if you really want to view the canyon as eagles see it, take a walk on the Skywalk. • The Skywalk at Grand Canyon West is on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. The tribe developed the area for tourism and to expose visitors to a different area of the Grand Canyon. • The Skywalk protrudes out from the canyon wall 4,000 feet (1219 m) above the canyon floor. It is designed to hold the weight of 71 747 airplanes. Cameras aren’t allowed on the walkway, and numbered shoe covers are issued to visitors to prevent scratching and slipping.

For Advertising Information Call 954-667-3237 • Do you know who participated in the “First Walk” on the Skywalk? Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, after Neil Armstrong, on July 20, 1969. Aldrin walked out to meet Hualapai tribal leaders and John Herrington, the only Native American astronaut. It was a pretty significant day for the tribe and a great addition to the Grand Canyon experience. • The Grand Canyon is a magnificent place for both a family vacation and studying nature. The Colorado River and canyon walls are full of scientific evidence about the history of the area. Both evolutionists and creationists are intrigued with the area, and even though they disagree about life origins, they agree that the Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing natural features on earth.

MUSIC LEGENDS: THE EAGLES The Eagles band was formed in 1971 when four backup players for Linda Ronstadt decided to try to make it on their own.

Meisner who left the band in 1976 and 1977, respectively. Don Felder joined the group in 1974 and left with hard feelings – and a lawsuit – in 2001. Joe Walsh and Timothy Schmit joined in 1976 and 1977 respectively and are still touring with Henley and Frey. • The first album, simply titled “Eagles,” released in 1972, sold a million copies. Even though it was recorded in England, the band members were all from the U.S. and among the first to popularize the California “country rock” music style. There were three “Top 40” hits on the album: “Take It Easy,” “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling.” • Jackson Browne, another country rock singer, had been writing a song but had been unable to finish. He gave his friend, Glenn Frey, permission to work on the song. Glenn added verse two, with some of the words being, “Standin’ on the corner in Winslow, Arizona.” That song, “Take It Easy,” was the lead song on the first album and propelled the Eagles to super-stardom! • Winslow is located on famed Route 66. When Interstate 40 was built bypassing the town in the late 1970s, the town nearly disappeared. In 1994, the Standin’ on the Corner Foundation, a non-profit corporation dedicated to restoring Winslow, was formed. • The La Posada Hotel, one of the “last great railroad hotels” from the 1930s reopened in Winslow, Arizona, in 1997. (This was a former Fred Harvey Hotel that was designed by Mary Colter, the same company and architect who designed structures in Grand Canyon National Park.) Two years later Standin’ on the Corner Park opened. A 28foot by 40-foot mural by artist John Pugh depicts the line from “Take It Easy”: “It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me.” A sculpture of a cowboy by Ron Adamson stands on the corner with his guitar leaning against a lamp post. Eagles fans should mark their calendars for the 12th Annual Standin’ on the Corner Festival to be held September 24 and 25, 2010. • The Eagles recorded five other albums by 1980, including the release of “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975),” which became the best-selling album in U.S. history. To date there have been over 29 million copies sold in the U.S. and over 42 million worldwide.

THE EAGLES (continued): • The band broke up with hard feelings in 1980. Several of the band members began solo careers, but none were as successful alone as they had been as a group. • In 1994 the band reunited consisting of Frey, Henley, Walsh, Felder, Schmit and four additional musicians. At their first live performance in April 1994, Frey said, “For the record, we never broke up; we just took a 14-year vacation.” • “Long Road Out of Eden” was recorded in 2007 for the first Eagles studio album since 1979. They have been touring sporadically in the last ten years or so and just completed a tour in April and May. Let’s hope for more to come!

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have read your column for many years, but I haven’t seen anything about stomach flu. Will you write about it? Someone in my family of seven gets it every year, even in the summer. Does the flu shot protect you from it? -- H.H. ANSWER: At one time, I conducted a crusade to erase the term “stomach (or intestinal) flu” from the English language. I didn’t get very far, so I gave up on it. Real flu -influenza -- is a respiratory illness, not an intestinal illness. The flu shot provides protection only against true flu, not “stomach” flu.

Norovirus infections usually spare infants. Older people have the worst symptoms, and they are the ones who can die from an infection, but death is rare. This is the illness that sweeps through cruise ships and can infect an entire nursing home. It’s also common in military settings and sports teams. The virus is passed in contaminated food and water, and it can live for long times on inanimate objects -- another possible source of transmission. No medicines kill the norovirus. Replacing fluid lost through diarrhea is the most important aspect of treatment. A homemade replacement solution is a mixture of half a teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and four tablespoons of sugar in a quart (about one liter) of water. Commercial fluid replacements also are available, and drinks like Gatorade are suitable for infections that are not prostrating. Bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol) controls diarrhea. Immunity to norovirus is not long-lasting, so second infections occur. Many bacterial illnesses, like Salmonella, also lead to diarrhea, but that’s a subject for another day. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: How can I get rid of bags under my eyes? -- B.L. ANSWER: In younger years, people don’t have bags under their eyes because a strong meshwork of tissue holds fat in place. With age, that meshwork loses strength, and fat pushes its way outward in the area under the eyes. That bulging fat is bags. I wish I had a simple answer for you. The only way to get rid of those bags is surgical removal. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Since I was 12, I have played tennis. I still do, four times a week, and I am 77. I have had to cut the time I play tennis in half because I’m getting short of breath. What kind of lung exercises can I do? -- R.K. ANSWER: Forget lung exercises. See your doctor, and you should do that as soon as you can. Becoming breathless doing things you used to do without any trouble can be a sign of many serious illnesses.

Four viruses are the usual culprits of stomach flu, and, for adults, the one that leads the pack is norovirus. Vomiting, diarrhea, fever and often headache are the main symptoms. It comes on suddenly, about one or two days after the virus enters the body. The sickness lasts only one to three days. A slight increase in number of cases occurs in the winter, but it comes in all seasons.

FITTING GREEN INTO YOUR SPACE South Florida homes do not always accommodate recycling well. If you live in a condominium, apartment, or an older bungalow style home a smaller footprint probably reminds you more of the size of your kitchen than your environmental footprint. So how do you manage a good recycling program when you have trouble fitting two people in your kitchen? There are several options I have found that work effectively without taking up much or any additional space. For a recycling bin you can use a baker’s rack with bins to separate your recyclables. If you live in an apartment, a small home, or a condominium many models have three to four bins and a hard top, that offers an additional work space in a small kitchen, or a spot to place your toaster oven. You can also use a cart with baskets, often used to store fruits, to the same effect. If you are really limited in space, or don’t want to take up additional space in your kitchen, consider replacing a standard sized garbage can with milk crates or stackable wooden boxes. You can place garbage in the top bin, and then divide the lower bins for cans, plastics and paper. It will take a bit more effort to place things in the proper bins, but nobody ever said that going green would be simple.

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I’m not afraid of dogs, but I worry about getting bitten sometimes. My older brother told me that only mean dogs will bite, but I’m not sure about that. How can I tell when a dog is about to bite? -- Kerry in South Dakota DEAR KERRY: Unfortunately, it’s not true that only “mean” dogs bite. Any dog can bite, even a gentle one, if it is in pain, startled or protecting something like its puppies or a toy. So, your instinct is right on: Don’t be afraid of dogs, but use caution and respect when interacting with them. The U.S. Postal Service has some tips to follow to minimize the risk of being bitten: • Don’t run past a dog. The dog’s natural instinct is to chase and catch prey. • If a dog threatens you, don’t scream. Avoid eye contact. Try to remain motionless until the dog leaves, then back away slowly until the dog is out of sight. • Don’t approach a strange dog, especially one that’s tethered or confined. • While letter carriers are discouraged from petting animals, people who choose to pet dogs should always let a dog see and sniff them before petting the animal. • If you believe a dog is about to attack you, try to place something between yourself and the dog, such as a backpack or a bicycle.
