Key West, seeking to enhance its reputation as a freewheeling, fun-loving, party without consequence kind of town, seceded from the United States, declaring itself The Conch Republic.

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD: and South Tetons.

THE TETONS

There are many beautiful mountain ranges in the world but few are as recognizable as the peaks in Grand Teton National Park near Jackson, Wyoming. Let’s climb high for some Teton Tidbits! • When Grand Teton National Park was first established in 1929, it only encompassed the mountain peaks and the lakes near the base. It took years of wrangling with local ranchers, residents, sheepherders, politicians and others for the park to be enlarged. • In 1943, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt established Jackson Hole National Monument, combining acreage in the Teton National Forest and other federal properties including Jackson Lake with a generous 35,000-acre (14164-ha) donation by John D. Rockefeller Jr. • After years of arguments, on September 14, 1950, the original 1929 Grand Teton National Park and the 1943 National Monument, including Rockefeller’s donation, were combined to create the present-day boundaries. • During the years of debate, many pushed for the Teton Range of mountains and the valley of Jackson Hole, including the town of Jackson, Wyoming, to be included in Yellowstone National Park. • With the establishment of the Grand Teton National Park, 97 ranchers endorsed a petition that read: “That this region will find its highest use as a playground…The destiny of Jackson’s Hole is as a playground, typical of the west, for the education and enjoyment of the Nation, as a whole.” • Even though many refer to the area as the “Grand Tetons,” the Grand Teton is actually the most prominent peak in the Teton Range at an elevation of 13,770 feet (4198 m). The Teton Range is actually 40 miles (65 km) long and 7-9 miles (11-14.5 km) wide. The three most widely known and recognized peaks in the Tetons are the Grand, Middle

• The Tetons sit on a massive fault line where earth movement caused the mountains to rise and the valley to be lowered. An interesting thing about these mountains is that there are no foothills, which allows gorgeous photos to be taken with the mountains mirrored in lakes at the valley floor. There are actually seven morainal (created by glaciers) lakes at the base of the range with Jackson Lake being the largest. The elevation of Jackson Lake is 6,750 feet (2,057 m), with the Tetons towering above. • During the winter months in the area, snow accumulates an average of 191 inches (490 cm). Of course, this makes for excellent skiing at Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee Resorts, the local ski “hills.” • The melting snow flows into the Snake River, which starts in Yellowstone, just north of the Tetons. The Snake “snakes” its way through the park into Idaho, Oregon and Washington before it flows into the Columbia River in southern Washington and heads for the Pacific Ocean. • Mountain climbers come from all over the world to climb “The Grand” and other mountains in the Tetons. If you plan to visit, you don’t have to be a climber or a skier. There are approximately 100 miles of paved roads and nearly 200 miles of hiking trails in the park.

SHOVELS

The word shovel can be a noun or a verb. This Tidbits will explore the noun, which is defined as “an instrument for lifting or scooping loose material, such as earth, coal, etc., consisting of a curved blade or a scoop attached to a handle.” • Shovels have been around for thousands of years. The first shovels were probably the ones made from the shoulder blades of oxen. When people needed a tool, they learned to invent from what was available. • The Romans were the first to use heat to get iron to its malleable point (the point at which it could be bent and shaped). Since that time, shovel manufacturers have emerged to fill the need for shovels for gardening, road and rail building, home construction and much more. • In colonial America, many blacksmiths made the tools families needed to plant their food crops. The tools were very valuable and necessary for survival. Many blacksmiths made as many tools as they did horseshoes. • Captain John Ames was an early blacksmith who began making America’s first metal shovels in 1774. As the colonists began building the country in its early years, quality tools were needed for many endeavors that built the United States. Used for farming, railroad building, mining and road building as well as home and business construction, Ames shovels were an important invention.

drugs and rock ‘n’ roll to make headlines.

• While there are many companies that build shovels today, Ames shovels were used in most major events in the early years of the United States. In the 1870s Ames was producing 60 percent of the world’s metal shovels, approximately 5,000 shovels per day! Many Ames shovels have been used in both peace and war times by the military. • All of these events included the use of Ames shovels: the groundbreaking for the B&O Railroad in Baltimore; the building of the transcontinental railroad; the California and Australia gold rushes; the installation of the Statue of Liberty; exploration of Antarctica by Admiral Byrd; building the Hoover Dam and Mount Rushmore; and the construction of the interstate highways.

January 6, 2012 • 

Justin Bieber: Go for quality and not quantity in your public appearances, and stay home with your family and friends a few nights.

HOLLYWOOD -- It’s time again to make resolutions for the new year. We thought it would be great fun to nudge a few of our favorite celebrities in the right direction. Ashton Kutcher: Shave your fuzzy face and stop hiding your light under a bushel -- of hair.

• For more about the history of Ames and other shovels, visit the Stonehill Industrial History Center, located at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. Known by most as the “shovel museum,” the center has 755 shovels from Ames on display. • During the winter months, the shovels that are usually in use are not for digging but for shoveling snow. More than 100 patents for snow shovels have been awarded to inventors since 1870. One of the first patents was given to Lydia Fairweather (yes, her real name!) in 1889.

The Kardashians: Find a talent -- any talent -- to be known for other than your bums! Tom Welling: (Bet you don’t know who he is!) Use the superpowers you acquired as Superboy (the past 10 years on “Smallville”) to get people to know who the heck you are. Jennifer Lopez: Is this the year you finally learn from past mistakes? Your first husband, Ojoni Noa, was a waiter in Miami; your second husband, a backup dancer, Cris Judd (which didn’t turn out too well); and now you’re running around with 23-year-old backup dancer and choreographer Casper Smart ... not very smart considering the ugly custody battle husband No. 3 Marc Anthony is about to wage. Oprah Winfrey: Now that you own your OWN Network, figure out how to own it like you did at ABC! Lady Gaga: You are such a talented singer/songwriter, let us see more of that great talent and less of the overthe-top costumes and props.

• Snow shovels are great for clearing snow, as long as you shovel correctly. Using your legs and not straining your back are important points to remember.

Tom Hanks: You recently wrote, produced, directed and starred in “Larry Crowne” with Julia Roberts. Why not hire other professionals to help you get it right!

• In 1925, Canadian Arthur Sicard invented the snowblower. It did not replace the regular snow shovels, but it did help road and parking lot crews in their efforts to clear the way for pedestrians, cars, trucks and other means of transportation during the winter months.

Tom Cruise: Take on the impossible mission of proving once and for all you’re ALL man! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Put your kids in day care and take them out of the public eye. Miss Piggy: Dump Kermit and find yourself another frog -- or pig or whatever -- before you’re too old!

Robert Pattinson, Kristin Stewart and Taylor Lautner: Find something -- anything -- away from “The Twilight Saga” to make us cheer for you! Donald Trump: Get a new barber and hairstyle before America says, “You’re fired!” The Republican Party: Find a candidate you can actually run against President Obama. “Dancing With the Stars”: How about just one season with at least one top-notch celebrity to put the “star” back in your name! Hey, Michael Buble, what do you say? Push that plate of pasta away and return to the swooner-crooner of yesterday. Miley Cyrus: Find something besides sexy photos,

But seriously: Let’s make 2012 the year we care as much for our neighbors and friends as we do for ourselves. Send letters to Tony Rizzo’s Hollywood, 8306 Wilshire Blvd., No. 362, Beverly Hills, CA 90211. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

954-522-5566 www.cartridgeworldusa.com/store865 a decade ago, we’ve all had to sit and watch the halftime show because most of us are old and care about bands like The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. See? This is a problem. For one -- these bands typically do terrible jobs at whatever they’re supposed to be doing at a halftime show. McCartney -- who was the first postTimberlake halftime act -- seemed to be pretty game, but that’s probably because he plays a stadium every other freaking day of his life.

Madonna? Give Me a Break!

Can’t really say the same for the other acts. Roger Daltrey looked like he wanted to punch Pete Townshend for making Madonna is going to play the halftime show at the Super him sing a medley at his Super Bowl turn.

But now, it’s like, nooooo ... gotta see the legendary Prince sing “Purple Rain” and burn the Stouffer’s lasagna because ... I don’t know, because it’s Prince and we’re supposed to watch him because the NFL deemed it to be so. But it used to really deem a lot of other stuff suitable for the viewing audience. Did you know that Carol Channing performed not one, but two Super Bowl halftimes? That’s two more than Lady Gaga, two more than Madonna until this year. See, it used to be marching bands. That was until corporate sponsors said, wait a minute! There’s a minute not being sponsored by a corporation! Let’s fix that! This started in the mid-’80s, when those happening fellas George Burns and Mickey Rooney hit the stage a year before Bob Costas introduced “Elvis Presto” to the world (in 3-D, no less). But nobody ever watched that stuff. We wouldn’t have even seen Janet Jackson’s nipple if the FDA or FCC or ESPN -pick your acronym -- hadn’t told us about it over and over again.

Don’t Let Foreclosure Stop You from Reclaiming Your American Dream! We all know the obvious consequences of facing foreclosure. Losing your home, facing a deficiency judgment for the difference between the value of your home and the amount of your mortgage, and dealing with damaged credit are a few; but unfortunately there is so much more associated with this process than just your finances. Emotionally, losing a home can be extremely difficult. Often times, people build up a veritable carousel of dreams in their mind composed of all the good things they expect to happen in their home as they grow older. Feeling hopeless as you seemingly watch those hopes and dreams slowly slip away only adds to the emotional loss. Couple the financial and emotional loss with the newly released scientific research that reveals a rise in stress related physical ailments discussed in a recent New York

Times article titled “Foreclosures are Killing Us,” and it’s easy to see that foreclosure is not something to be taken lightly. So what do you do? There have been several stories in the news about so called loan modification experts who will either do nothing but take your money in exchange for a slew of ‘too good to be true’ promises, or who will, possibly in good faith but still unwisely so, submit your private financial information to a bank numerous times hoping the bank will respond to a plea for help. The overwhelming failure of the federal government’s modification program only serves to highlight the fact that an approach which relies solely on corresponding with banks to ask for a modification is unfortunately rarely feasible. Moreover, divulging your financial history is not only irrelevant to any legal issue at hand but it is also typically not in your best interest to do so. The larger concern is the servicers’ repeated requests for financial information under the guise of a loan modification might instead just be a fishing expedition to see if you have any assets which would be recoverable in a deficiency.

However, there is hope. Thanks to a handful of highly trained, extremely hard-working and dedicated litigation lawyers, homeowners can fight back and with very fair fee structures, they can do so for far less than you might think. These lawyers are seizing upon the opportunity left behind as a by-product of the banks’ rush to profit both when these mortgages were formed and now as they are falling apart. Through the application of leverage resulting from numerous legitimate legal and ethical defenses, while simultaneously educating the lender how they would be far better off in a workout than they will be post foreclosure; with one of these highly trained professionals, you have a chance to substantially alter your circumstances. It can be a new day in court for homeowners armed with the right representation but take your time before jumping in with just any lawyer.

They almost always lead to a full recovery of function. Now the window has been opened wider, to 4 1/2 hours. That doesn’t detract from the important message that the earlier the treatment, the better the result.

Stroke: Quick Action Saves Brain Cells DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Six years ago, my father died of a stroke. My mother tried to rouse him from bed, but he responded with confusion and was unable to speak. She called for an ambulance. He was in the hospital only four hours before he died. The doctor said he would have lived if he had gotten treatment sooner. My mother has felt guilty about this ever since. She lives with us now. I don’t want to miss a stroke if she has one. How do you recognize one, and what should be done right away in an emergency? -- T.B. ANSWER: Nearly 900,000 strokes occur yearly in the United States, and of those victims, 200,000 die. Many of the survivors are left with great disabilities. Strokes come in two types: One is an ischemic (is-KEY-mick) stroke, and the other is a hemorrhagic stroke. “Ischemic” means “deprived of blood.” It’s the more common kind of stroke, accounting for 80 percent of all strokes. The flow of blood to part of the brain is blocked by a clot in an artery. It’s the brain’s equivalent of a heart attack. The other 20 percent comes from bleeding in the brain, a hemorrhagic stroke. Signs of either kind of stroke include slurred speech, sudden confusion, numbness of the face, arm or leg, trouble seeing, dizziness and severe headache. Many advocate testing the person to decide if a stroke has occurred. Asking the affected person to stick out his or her tongue and seeing if it deviates to the side is one of those tests. Don’t waste time doing tests. Immediately call 911. I’m limiting what I say about treatment to strokes resulting from the obstruction of blood flow. Brain cells begin to die within minutes. However, there’s a three-hour window during which clot-dissolving medicines can be given.

The booklet on strokes tells their signs and their treatments. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 902W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow two weeks for delivery.

• To make a nice ice pack, enclose several ice cubes in a sealable plastic baggie, then wrap in a bandana. You can tie the ends together to keep the cover from slipping. When you want to refreeze, put the baggie in the freezer, and hang the bandana to dry. It will dry very quickly and can be reused soon.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is very nearsighted and has to wear thick glasses. I’m not. I don’t wear glasses at age 50. We have four children. What are their chances of having to wear glasses? -- E.P.

• Want to get the most bang for your buck at the takeaway salad bar? Load up on bacon, walnuts, cheese, meats and dried fruits; go light on green beans, cucumbers, hard-boiled eggs, celery, radishes and chickpeas, which are marked up 200 percent to 300 percent.

ANSWER: Nearsightedness (myopia) indicates that the eyes can see things that are near. Nearsighted eyes don’t see distant objects clearly. It’s a common eye condition, and genetic involvement in it is high. If one parent is nearsighted, the children have a 24 percent chance of also being nearsighted. If both parents are nearsighted, the children’s risk increases to 48 percent. If neither parent is affected, the children have an 8 percent chance of developing nearsightedness. Factors other than genes have to be at work. (Don’t believe these percentages with unquestioning acceptance. I don’t.) Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

• “When you clean out your fish tank, recycle the used water by pouring it on your house or garden plants. I don’t know what it is in the water, but it makes shrubs and flowers grow like crazy.” -- Patti in Orlando • “The all-time best remedy for a runny nose or sore throat doesn’t cost hardly a thing: It’s plain old salt water. Mix a half-teaspoon into a cup of hot water and gargle two to three times a day. If the taste is off-putting, try swishing a bit of mouthwash in your mouth just before you gargle with the salt water. This works really well, and even my doctor thinks it’s a great idea.” -- F.L. in Michigan • Use salt to clean out your garbage disposal. Kosher salt has larger grains that work very well. Dump a half-cup in the disposal, run the cold water and hit the switch. The grains scour the inside, leaving a bettersmelling drain. • “Here’s a great after-workout drink that I just found out about: chocolate milk. The trainer at my gym prefers it over the fancy and costly ‘post-workout’ drinks at the gym’s smoothie bar.” -- I.E. in Oregon Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Cook the rice in 2 cups salted water for 20 minutes, or until done. Set aside.

Basic Polenta Makes 4 servings

Polenta is a delicious whole-grain food that pairs well with many different flavors, although typically associated with northern Italian cuisine. Polenta comes in fine, medium, or coarsely ground. Any type of polenta can be used in this recipe but the cooking times will vary. 4 cups water or vegetable broth 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste 1 cup polenta or yellow cornmeal 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons chopped roasted garlic (see note) (optional) 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme, sage, or rosemary (optional) Heat water or vegetable broth and salt in a 4-quart or larger saucepan. When it boils, add polenta slowly while whisking continuously. Continue to whisk for a couple of minutes to prevent clumping and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer at a low temperature for about 40 minutes. Be sure to stir every 5 to 10 minutes. Use caution when removing the lid, as hot polenta can erupt from the pot. If the polenta gets too thick, simply add more water or broth (preferably water or broth that has been heated so it does not slow the cooking process). The polenta is done when it tastes smooth and the grains are tender. Towards the end of cooking, whisk in nutritional yeast, garlic, if using, and herbs, if using. Adjust salt if needed. Serve soft-style or spread in a 9”×13” baking dish or sheet pan and allow the polenta to cool. Cooled polenta can be sliced, brushed with a little olive oil, and then baked in the oven or placed under a broiler until crispy. Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Basic Polenta will keep for up to 4 days. When reheating soft-style polenta, add vegetable broth or water and use a whisk. Note: To roast garlic, place about 8 cloves whole garlic in a small baking dish. Coat with 2 teaspoons olive oil, add a little water or vegetable broth, and sprinkle with a little salt. Cover and roast for about 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F. Garlic should be soft and golden brown.
