TIDBITS® SAYS HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO

SEPTEMBER BABIES

by Kathy Wolfe It’s birthday time for those born in September! Here are a few tidbits about these autumn babies, both past and present. • Ed Sullivan was 62 years old when the Beatles made their first live appearance in America on his TV variety show in 1964. Every Sunday night since 1948, this former boxer had promised “a really big show” to his viewers, frequently prefacing his introductions with, “And now, right here on our stage…” The Beatles’ performance made that week’s show the most-watched program in TV history to date. Sullivan’s program remained on the air until 1971.

• Prince Harry, the younger son of Charles and Diana born in September 1984, isn’t really Harry at all, but rather Henry Charles Albert David. The 27-year-old pilot in training is third in line to the British throne. • “You might be a redneck” if you’re familiar with the work of September baby Jeff Foxworthy. This Blue Collar Comedy Team member also hosts the quiz show “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” Foxworthy didn’t start out as a comedian, but rather as a mainframe computer maintenance technician at IBM, a company where his father was an executive. It was his IBM co-workers who convinced him to enter a comedy talent show in 1984. turn the page for more!

www.Tidbitscv.com SEPTEMBER BABIES (continued): • Two great football coaches shared the same birthday, September 11, although 11 years apart. Paul “Bear” Bryant, longtime coach of the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide, led his charges to six national championships during his 25 years at the post. Tom Landry guided his Dallas Cowboys to two Super Bowl victories and five NFC titles during his 29 seasons with the team. He holds the NFL record for the most consecutive winning seasons with 20, from 1966 to 1985. • Tommy Lee Jones, of “The Fugitive” and “Men in Black” fame, is an honors graduate of Harvard with a degree in English. While at Harvard, he was the football team’s offensive tackle during their undefeated 1968 season and was named to the first-team All-Ivy League roster. His college roommate also went on to great things. That person was Al Gore, later to become vice president under President Bill Clinton. In his free time, Jones is a San Antonio Spurs fan. Of Cherokee ancestry, he also is fluent in Spanish. • Country singer Patsy Cline accomplished much in her short five-and-a-half year career. Born Virginia Patterson Hensley, she was a Grand Ole Opry star at age 26 and the No. 1 female artist at 29. Her recording of “I Fall to Pieces” was Song of the Year for 1962. She initially disliked what has become her signature song, “Crazy,” written by fellow country artist Willie Nelson. Cline was nearly killed in a head-on collision in 1961 and cheated death for just one more year. At age 30, she was killed in a plane crash in a Tennessee forest. “Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits” was released four years after her death and has sold 10 million copies worldwide. She’s number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.”

SEPTEMBER BABIES (continued): • In 1965, Lesley Hornby was regularly in the camera’s eye, one of the world’s first famous teenage models. Weighing in at only 91 pounds (41 kg) on a 5-foot, 6-inch (1.68 m) frame, her ultra-thin body earned her the name of “Twiggy.” She achieved her wide-eyed look with three layers of false eyelashes. • More than 11,000 teachers applied to the NASA Teacher in Space project for a chance to become the first civilian educator in space. New Hampshire social studies teacher Christa McAuliffe was chosen to be a part of the January 1986 flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger and was scheduled to teach two lessons to her classes from space. Just 73 seconds into the flight, the craft exploded, the result of a failure of rubber O-rings. • Even if you’ve never heard the name Edgar Rice Burroughs, you’ve undoubtedly seen his creation. Beginning in 1912, Burroughs published 26 novels about jungle hero Tarzan of the Apes. He began writing the stories the previous year after struggling to make ends meet on his salary as a pencil sharpener salesman. Within a few years, he had purchased a large ranch north of Los Angeles and appropriately named it Tarzana. The community that grew up around the ranch goes by that name today. Even though it was Tarzan that brought the fame, Burroughs penned nearly 70 novels throughout his career. • September-born New York Yankee Roger Maris gained fame when he broke Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record in 1961. The Babe had hit 60 homers in 1927, and Maris belted out his 61st in 1961, a new record that endured until 1998. Over the course of his 12 years in the Majors, Maris played for four teams and batted in seven World Series.

He actually got his start playing the trumpet, recording “Trumpet Sorrento” in 1954 at age 15. His 1959 tune “Venus” firmly cemented him as a singing star, spending five weeks in the No. 1 spot on the charts. He joined up with Annette Funicello in the 1960s for a series of beach movies, such as “Beach Party” and “Beach Blanket Bingo.” Avalon remains married to a former beauty pageant winner he wed 48 years ago, and the couple has eight children. • Generations of children have benefited from the wisdom of Stan Berenstain and his wife Jan, who together penned more than 300 Berenstain Bears books. The series of children’s stories address a variety of difficulties faced by parents, including teaching children about strangers, tantrums in public places, visiting the dentist and homework hassles. Stan got his start drawing cartoons for magazines and progressed into children’s literature after the birth of his son Leo. • We know Alison Sweeney as the lovely host of television’s “The Biggest Loser,” a position she’s held since 2007. But her longest-running role is that of Samantha Brady on the daytime drama “Days of our Lives,” a role she has had since the age of 16, one that has earned her four Soap Opera Digest awards. Her first gig was in a Kodak ad at the age of five. She’s married to a California highway patrol officer who once had a guest spot on “Days.”

OVERCOMING THE ODDS: 3rd Quarter 2011 CHRIS WADDELL Week 36

Chris Waddell’s story is one of a young man Sept. 4 dealt - Sept. who was a 10 tragedy yet chose to turn it into triumph. This week, Tidbits looks into the Pageremarkable 4 life of this athlete who overcame astounding difficulties to reach victory. • In 1988, Chris Waddell was a promising young ski racer as a freshman at Vermont’s Middlebury College. With the goal of going All-American, he planned to spend his Christmas break training on the slopes. On the first day of his vacation, he experienced a devastating crash, one that broke his back and paralyzed him from the waist down. • As Waddell lay recuperating in the hospital, he made up his mind to continue skiing in some shape or form. Within two months of the accident, he was back again at Middlebury, enrolled in Spring Semester classes. Ten months after that, he was back on the hill, learning to mono-ski in a specially-built ski frame. • Waddell remained on the Middlebury ski team as he worked to perfect his abilities, and as a senior at the college, served as captain of the team. Two years after his first attempt at monoskiing, he was named to the U.S. Disabled Ski Team. He first competed at the Paralympic Winter Games in 1992, winning two silver medals. In Lillehammer’s 1994 Paralympics, he collected all four golds. He continued his participation in these events up through 2002, garnering 12 total medals, becoming the most decorated skier in Paralympic history. In addition, he has nine World Champion medals. Along the way, as a way of helping other disabled athletes, he founded a camp for upand-coming mono-skiers.

• Mike Post has made his living composing music for several television programs. If you’ve ever watched “The Rockford Files,” “Hill Street Blues,” “L.A. Law,” “Law and Order,” “Magnum P.I.” or “NYPD Blue,” you’ve heard this September baby’s work.

• Waddell has been honored by Skiing magazine as one of “The 25 Greatest Skiers in North America.” He has had modeling assignments for department stores and catalogs and had a role in the daytime drama “Loving.” People magazine has included him on their list of “The Fifty Most Beautiful People in the World.” • Waddell has also created a non-profit foundation called One Revolution (referring to one rotation of a wheelchair’s wheel), with the goal of bringing “hope and inspiration to the disabled community.” He maintains he wouldn’t change a thing about his life, saying, “I don’t think what happens to you is nearly as significant as what you do with what happens to you.”

• As if all of Waddell’s triumphs in ski racing weren’t sufficient, he branched out into 3rd Quarter 2011 and nabbed the World wheelchair racing Championship Week 36 in 1998 and a Paralympic gold medal. His greatest conquest, however, Sept. 4 - Sept. 10 occurred in 2009, when the 42-year-old Page 5 paraplegic climbed to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, using the power of his own arms. He ascended the 19,340-foot-high (5,895-m) mountain in six and half days, wheeling himself up in a specially designed four-wheeled mountain bike, a 50-pound (22.7-kg), 27-geared cycle that can scale foot-high boulders. The final 4,000 feet (1,219 m) were a vertical climb, during which he was secured to a winch and pedaled up a fixed rope. Waddell estimated that it took 528,000 revolutions of the cycle’s wheels to reach the summit. Speaking of his monumental feat, his words were, “My goal was to change the lives of the 600 million people in the world with physical disabilities. That day I felt like I rode on their power.”

In this day of frequent lawsuits, manufacturers are making sure they have all their bases covered. In their attempt to shield consumers from injury, they list some rather bizarre safety precautions. This week, we bring you some actual warnings found on a variety of products. • Boxes of Christmas lights were distributed with the counsel, “For indoor or outdoor use only.” The question is, what other kind of use is there? • Even though it seems to be the purpose of pepper spray, the warning on one brand of this self-defense item reads, “May irritate eyes.” The same goes for the advisory on a popular nighttime sleep aid: “Warning, may cause drowsiness.” • Fishermen, try to avoid the temptation to ingest your three-prong hooked fishing lure, because, after all, it’s “harmful if swallowed.” • You probably won’t be tempted to disobey the warning found on one electronic thermometer: “Do not use orally after using rectally.” Similarly, one well-known brand of toilet brush directs, “Do not use for personal hygiene.” Don’t worry! Most folks won’t even think of it! • Do-it-yourselfers, beware! You are advised not to use a 12-inch compact disk storage rack as a ladder. Likewise, your electric drill might carry the warning found on one manufacturer’s brand, “This product not intended for use as a dental drill.” And if you haven’t read the owner’s manual for your chainsaw, you may have missed the admonition, “Do not attempt to stop the blade with your hand.” • The wrapper of a popular fruit roll-up states, “Remove plastic before eating.” You’d think it would just taste better that way!

• Bicyclists and roller-bladers should be aware of the hazards associated with shin guards —“Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover.” That seems to make sense! • Not that you planned to, but the next time you’re changing the cartridge in your laser printer, “Do not eat toner.” • The warning label on a certain children’s cold medicine is designed to ensure that its 6- to 12-year-old users don’t operate any heavy machinery because this product can cause drowsiness. These youngsters should also consult a health professional before use if they’re pregnant.

• Be advised when choosing your child’s superhero costume for Halloween as, “This cape does not give the wearer the ability to fly.”
