by Kathy Wolfe February is Black History Month, and this week, Tidbits takes some time to recognize the achievements of some noted African-Americans in various fields. • U.S. President Gerald Ford officially declared this tribute in 1976 as part of America’s Bicentennial, prevailing upon citizens to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” But the observance traces its roots back to 1926, when African-American historian and author Carter Woodson declared the second week of February to be Negro History Week. Woodson, one of the first scholars to study black history was also the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. That particular week was chosen because the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass fell at that time. • Frederick Douglass was born a slave in Maryland around 1818. After being shuffled around from one plantation to another, he was given to a Baltimore family. Although it was illegal to teach slaves to read, the owner’s wife began teaching Douglass when he was 12. Soon he was reading newspapers and political material, molding his views on freedom and human rights.

Tidbits® of of Kootenai County, Idaho Issue #8 Feb 17th. 2014 BLACK HISTORY MONTH (continued): • Frederick Douglass began teaching other slaves to read, a practice that went unnoticed for some months. When it was discovered, he was sent to a farmer who was well-known as a “slavebreaker.” After repeated beatings, Douglass was nearly psychologically shattered, and began to plot his escape. After one failed attempt, he was finally successful at age 18, boarding a train posing as a free black sailor. Less than 24 hours later, Douglass was sheltered in a safe house of a New York abolitionist. Eleven days later he married a free black woman who had helped him escape, a union that would endure 44 years. He spent the remainder of his life speaking out on racism, editing a black newspaper, writing three autobiographies, and gaining fame worldwide as an inspirational speaker.

Campbell, an Alabama banker and former slaveholder, who were both committed to the education of blacks. Adams had no formal education, yet could read, write, and speak several languages. In 1882, the school bought a plantation, and new campus buildings were constructed. By 1900, the university sat on nearly 2,300 acres. Today it’s ranked as one of the “Best Regional Colleges in the South,” offering 35 bachelor’s degrees, 12 masters’ programs, an architecture program, two doctoral degree programs, and a school of veterinary medicine.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH (continued): • Born into slavery, George Washington Carver went on to become one of the world’s most renowned botanists and scientists. Because the soil of the south had become depleted by planting nothing but cotton for years, Carver developed methods of improving the soil through crop rotation. Alternating the cotton planting with peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes, nitrogen was restored to the soil while providing nutritious crops for farm families. Through years of research and development, Carver came up with 300 uses for peanuts, including cosmetics, plastics, gasoline, adhesives, linoleum, synthetic rubber, and nitroglycerin. He also discovered hundreds of uses for soybeans, pecans, and sweet potatoes, and developed 536 different dyes while experimenting with plant leaves, fruit, stems, and roots. The scuppernong grape alone yielded 49 of these dyes. At age 32, Carver was invited by Booker T. Washington, the president of Tuskegee Institute, to head up the school’s Agriculture Department, and Carver remained there as an educator for 47 years, all the while continuing his famous research.

• On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson stepped to the plate at Ebbets Field as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the first AfricanAmerican to play major league baseball. After being raised in poverty, he attended Pasadena Junior College, excelling in football, basketball, track, and baseball, chosen as the region’s Most Valuable Player in baseball in 1938. Dodgers’ president Branch Rickey chose Robinson to help integrate the major leagues. Robinson was Rookie of the Year in 1947, National League MVP in 1949, and World Series champ in 1955. During his decade-long career with the Dodgers, he became their highest-paid player. He closed out his career in 1957 with a .311 batting average.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH continued): • Rosa Parks, the “Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement,” made history in 1955 when she refused to surrender her seat in the 11th row of a Montgomery, Alabama bus. Parks was arrested for violating city code and for disorderly conduct, although she had not technically broken any law. Montgomery’s 50year old law stated that no passenger could be forced to give up a seat or stand on a crowded bus. Nevertheless, her 30-minute trial resulted in a guilty verdict, and Rosa was fined $14 plus court costs. Rosa’s actions spurred a 381-day boycott of the city’s buses, organized in part by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said, “…it is more honorable to walk in dignity than ride in humiliation.” Since 75% of the bus customers were black, the finances of the public bus companies plunged, but by the end of the boycott, the segregation of the buses was at an end. When Rosa Parks died in 2006, newly-appointed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke at the memorial service, declaring to mourners that she would not be standing there as Secretary of State without Rosa Parks. • Condoleezza Rice was the second woman to serve as Secretary of State, but was the first African-American female to hold the position. Prior to her work for the George Bush administration, Rice had been a professor of political science at Stanford University, and in 2010, she returned to the faculty of that institution’s graduate school of business. It’s appropriate that her name Condoleezza, comes from a music-related term, con dolcezza, which in Italian means “with sweetness,” as she spends much of her time playing the piano. At 15, her goal was to become a concert pianist, and she still plays with a chamber music group on a regular basis.

By Cathy Inbody Although we still have lower inventory available, there are many homes new to the market. The amount of new listings into the market is up from this time last year. We are also seeing more sold and pending properties. These properties are showing offers very close or above list price and less days on market than previous. As we move closer to spring and better weather, we should continue to see home sales continue to grow. With home values increasing and the recent dip in mortgage interest rates, we are seeing more multiple offers on homes. Buyers are active and eagerly searching for their new home, this provides a great opportunity for sellers to get their home sold!

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta

By Dr. Holly Carling

I LOVE ACUPUNCTURE I love acupuncture. I love what it does for people. Today I had a patient reveling in how well she feels, still amazed at what acupuncture and nutrition have done for her. She said “I’m not sure you really understand the depth of this. I’ve been exhausted for 30 years and in pain from head to toe for 20+. I wake up now and can’t believe I’m not in pain. I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m alive. I’ve lived with pain and exhaustion for so long, it actually feels strange – like something is missing. You’ve given me back my life!” This is not an isolated incident. I hear similar stories day after day, year after year. It is unimaginable the joy that I feel that I am privileged to be the instrument to help people get their health back. After 35 years of practice as a nutritionist and herbalist and over 25 years as a Licensed Acupuncturist, I still smile every day at the difference I am able to make in people’s lives. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. More than likely, many people sacrificed health and limb to fully develop the art and science of acupuncture. For centuries before science was able to qualify how acupuncture works, thousands of practitioners saw the results, believed in it, and trusted in what was being developed without the need for double-blind research studies to prove its effectiveness. They saw it work again and again in practice. Here in the U.S., that isn’t good enough. Fortunately, acupuncture is being heavily researched today. It has been studied in nearly every major university in the U.S., and time after time the results come back that it works! (We could have saved them hundreds of millions of dollars if they would have simply interviewed the billions of people worldwide that have benefited!). The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have compiled a list of conditions that, under the hands of a skilled practitioner, have been helped with acupuncture. They are categorized as “upper respiratory tract, eye, mouth, digestive, neurological, musculoskeletal, reproductive and gynecological, mental and emotional disorders and sports injuries. The list was too exhaustive to list each condition in each category. These are just the ones they have been determined through their consensus statement. It does not include others that are continually shown effective in clinical practice. Scientific study is delineating more and more specifics about acupuncture. But one thing remains: Acupuncture is still around after thousands of years because it works. It has withstood “the test of time”. There is still much we don’t understand about how it works, but the fact that it does work is evident to most who try it. Dr. Holly Carling is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Naturopathy, Clinical Nutritionist and Master Herbologist with over 34 years of experience. Dr. Carling is currently accepting new patients and offers natural health care services and whole food nutritional supplements in her Coeur d’ Alene clinic. Visit Dr. Carling’s website at www.vitalhealthandfitness. com to learn more about Dr. Carling, view a list of upcoming health classes and read other informative articles.

Music to Soothe an Anxious Dog?

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My mixed collie “Skipper” gets extremely nervous during storms and when construction is going on outside -- basically during any unfamiliar noise. He cries and hides under the furniture, and I’m unable to approach him to comfort him. Is there anything I can do? -- Anxious in Boise DEAR ANXIOUS: Talk to the veterinarian first, so that he or she is aware that Skipper has an anxiety issue. Your vet can suggest a few solutions, including anti-anxiety medication and some training and behavioral techniques you can try. Many owners want to avoid medication for anxious pets, as they’re worried about the side effects. And in some cases, medication does not resolve the problem. Those are among the reasons owners are looking to alternative solutions to treating anxiety. Some swear by a homeopathic product called Bach’s Rescue Remedy, found in stores that specialize in herbal supplements (although it’s being sold more and more in pet stores). About five drops of the product are added to a dog’s water dish daily. Other owners combine homeopathic supplements with other therapies, such as playing music specifically composed to calm dogs during stressful events like thunderstorms. Or they put their dog into a Thundershirt, a wraparound garment that exerts constant, gentle pressure. No matter what therapy you choose, remember that the home environment and your own emotions can affect Skipper. Make sure his life has routine -- same feeding time, same walking times, etc. When a stressful event happens, keep yourself calm and speak in a soothing voice to Skipper.

Q. Is St. Vincent de Paul North Idaho still collecting food, blankets and clothing for the homeless? A. YES! St. Vincent de Paul North Idaho is the largest homeless and low-income providing organization in North Idaho. All the donations we received this winter are greatly appreciated. However, our need for donations will not end. Our warming center has been open most of this winter due to unseasonably cold temperatures. Many nights we had up to 30 individuals needing food and warmth. Our HELP Center continues to see 100-150 visitors per day looking for shelter, food and guidance. People do not just need help in the winter. As spring approaches our need for tents and sleeping bags increase for those who do not have a home. Food is needed year around and personal hygiene products are always in demand for those living out of their vehicles or without modern conveniences. If you have items you would like to donate please bring them to the HELP Center, 201 E. Harrison Avenue, CDA, ID 83814. If you need someone to pick them up call Barb at telephone number 208-416-4716. Donating to those in need does not only help the hungry and the cold, it also helps you feel better about yourself and appreciate everything you have.

Q: What is Traditional Chinese Medicine? A: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical system with a history that traces back more than 3,000 years. TCM works to bring the body back to its natural state of balance. This balance is achieved by stimulating the energy pathways that flow throughout the body, and correspond to the organ, muscular, and nervous systems. When this balance is disturbed due to stress, medication, hereditary conditions, poor diet, environmental factors or emotional issues, there can be a result of increased inflammation, pain or illness. TCM focuses on correcting these imbalances and stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Today, TCM is gaining more mainstream use for preventative care, maintenance of health, and the treatment of certain diseases and disorders. What Modalities are Included in Chinese Medicine? • AUCPUNCTURE:the insertion of single use, sterile, thin needles into different points along the body’s pathways to access and redirect energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. • CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE: utilizes natural substances administered as a medicinal strength formula to balance the body’s energy and systems. • TUI-NA: Chinese therapeutic bodywork used to treat musculo-skeletal problems and improve the functions of energy channels, internal organs, bones and joints. • MOXIBUSTION (MOXA): an external heat therapy that utilizes a specific herb to heat and tonify the body. What type of conditions does Chinese Medicine Treat? Since acupuncture and Chinese Medicine offers individualized treatment strategies that address the underlying causes of health problems and assist the body in healing itself, it can treat a myriad of issues. Some of my specialties include: headaches and migraines, digestive problems, women’s health including infertility, neck and back pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, allergies, fatigue, stress, chronic pain, common colds and flu, sports medicine including optimizing performance, and many other conditions.

Space Heater Safety Tips By Samantha Mazzotta

Q: In my neck of the woods we don't usually have cold winters, but this one has been a doozy. My mother hauled out her ancient space heater in December. A couple weeks ago I was visiting her and noticed that some laundry had fallen out of the basket and was lying atop the heater! Fortunately it was not turned on, but I'm terrified of what could happen. Can you remind your readers to keep the area around space heaters clear at all times? -- Lacy S., Valdosta, Ga. A: You just did, and I thank you for it. Regardless of the type of portable electric heater you have, it must be set up so that there is 3 feet of clearance around it, and placed on a heat-resistant surface (bare floor, for example, not carpet). Additionally, make sure that the outlet being used can handle the amount of electricity the space heater will draw. Don't plug anything else into that outlet. Consider replacing older space heaters. While I've seen many models built as long ago as the 1950s that are very sturdy, they often do not meet current electrical standards and can use a lot more power than newer models, meaning higher electric bills. What's the best space heater to purchase? I'm not a fan of the classic open-coil model, and there are alternatives. For example, an enclosed oil heater, which looks like a radiator on wheels, circulates heated oil through each section and provides indirect heat and a greater measure of safety. There are heaters that fit inside a kitchen's kickspace, oscillating tower heaters, and heaters disguised as fireplaces or standing vases. Portable heaters range in price from about $50 to several hundred dollars, so take a look at several options both in the home-improvement store and online. Make sure any heater you consider has the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) label. Heaters with thermostat control can provide greater energy savings. And it's important to make sure you purchase a heater that can handle the size of the room where you'll use it the most. (Check the sizing chart on the heater's packaging.) HOME TIP: Plug your space heater directly into a wall outlet, not a power strip; if an extension cord is needed, choose a heavy-duty cord of 14 gauge or larger.

by Samantha Weaver • It was writer and cartoonist James Thurber who made the following sage observation: “Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.” • You might not be familiar with the National Chicken Council, but it’s making predictions about you nonetheless. If you ate wings while watching the Super Bowl, you contributed to the 1.25 billion wings that the council’s 2014 Wing Report projected to be consumed during that event. • Those who study such things say that if you happen to find lint in your belly button, it’s more likely to be blue than any other color. • The name of the state of Alabama comes from the Choctaw word “albah,” which means “plant-cutters.” • Accident or not? At an evening event in 1989, a bottle of wine once owned by Thomas Jefferson was up for sale. The asking price? $500,000. It seems nobody was willing to pony up the cash, and at the end of the night there was no sale. At that point, a waiter (inadvertently?) dropped the bottle, destroying the unprofitable item. The bottle was insured, however, and the merchant did end up with $250,000. • The White House was not designed by an American. It was Irish architect James Hoban who won the competition to create the architectural plans for the home of the political leader of the United States. • Before he became president, George H.W. Bush was, for a time, the youngest aviator in the history of the U.S. Navy, getting his wings just three days before he turned 19.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Some unsettling facts about a past situation could come to light. And while you’d love to deal with it immediately, it’s best to get more information to support your case. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A straightforward approach to a baffling situation is best. Don’t allow yourself to be drawn into an already messy mass of tangles and lies. Deal with it and move on. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t be discouraged or deterred by a colleague’s negative opinion about your ideas. It could actually prove to be helpful when you get around to finalizing your plan. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Ignore that sudden attack of “modesty,” and step up to claim the credit you’ve so rightly earned. Remember: A lot of people are proud of you and want to share in your achievement. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A financial “deal” that seems to be just right for you Leos and Leonas could be grounded more in gossamer than substance. Get an expert’s advice to help you check it out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Don’t ignore that suddenly cool or even rude attitude from someone close to you. Asking for an explanation could reveal a misunderstanding you were completely unaware of. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Unless you have sound knowledge, and not just an opinion, it’s best not to step into a family dispute involving a legal matter, regardless of whom you support. Leave that to the lawyers. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An awkward situation presents the usually socially savvy Scorpian with a problem. But a courteous and considerate approach soon helps clear the air and ease communication. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A calmer, less-tense atmosphere prevails through much of the week, allowing you to restore your energy levels before tackling a new challenge coming up by week’s end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your approach to helping with a friend or family member’s problem could boomerang unless you take time to explain your method and how and why it (usually!) works. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Someone who gave you a lot of grief might ask for a chance for the two of you to make a fresh start. You need to weigh the sincerity of the request carefully before giving your answer. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Too much fantasizing about an upcoming decision could affect your judgment. Better to make your choices based on what you know now rather than on what you might learn later.


You have a way of seeing the best in people and helping them live up to their potential. (c) 2014 King Features Syndicate

by: Susan Ashley MD I am frequently asked what anti-aging vitamins are best. There are many products on the market now that make promises to slow the aging process and increase energy. Some work, many do not. But there is one simple nutrient that is widely available and inexpensive. Niacinamide. Niacinamide is not the same as niacin. You can’t convert niacin into niacinamide. What are the benefits? Every cell in the body is effected by how well you make energy. Niacinamide directly affects your body’s ability to produce energy and is critical for energy and for metabolism of fat and glucose. Your body is constantly using it, and so must be continually replaced. It also helps to prevent the breakdown of our DNA that occurs as we age. A study in mice found that niacinamide extends the lifespan by preventing apoptosis (cell death). Another study showed that niacinamide given to diabetics reduced their blood sugar levels to normal. The dose was 500mg/day for one month, then 250mg/day. This was a small study but very promising. Niacinamide helps you to fall asleep, especially if you have a lot on your mind. It does so by activating the benzodiazepine receptorsin the brain to induce a feeling of calmness and sleepiness. Take it 30 minutes before bedtime. An interesting note on niacinamide is that it can also help to prevent a hangover. A hangover esults from the toxic effects of acetaldehyde, whic is a by-product of alcohol. Stop the acetaldehyde, stop the hangover. Niacinamide can educe the formation of acetaldehyde by up to 50%. Take before and after drinking. I recommend you take between 1500 - 2000mg before bed every night.

Dear Auntie M.,

I don’t know if there is a right answer to my question, but I just need to ask. Is there a correct way that your toilet paper should unroll? My boyfriend says it should roll under or against the wall. I am adamant that it should roll over, or away from the wall. I hope you can shed some light on our quandary and set us straight. (Hopefully he is wrong!) Sorry, but I hate finding the T.P. rolling under. It truly irritates me and I just need some facts to back up my preference and set him straight. Thanks,Interested in Idaho Falls Dear Interested, Believe it or not the issue of the correct orientation of toilet paper is a subject of university study (habits), debates and internet forums. So far the jury is out on an indisputably ‘correct’ orientation, however you may find this interesting. To mark the 100th anniversary of Thomas Crapper’s death, a major toilet paper manufacturer launched a “Great Debate” advertising campaign, inviting American consumers to vote their preference at their website. During the 82nd Academy Awards the results were announced: 72% had voted over. Another interesting survey of 1,000 Americans found that “overs” are more likely than “unders” to notice a roll’s direction (74%), to be annoyed when the direction is incorrect (24%), and to have flipped the direction at a friend’s home (27%). Some households have dual TP holders so each can be ‘right.’ Bottom line, it’s all personal preference. Hope this helps and lightens the way to negotiation. Must say, at least he puts a new roll on the holder! Hang in there, and pick your battles wisely. Please send your questions or commentsPlease send your questions or comments to DearAuntieMmm@ I shall be frank and honest with my response and provide resources where appropriate.
