Page 2 Tidbits® of Flagler & E. Volusia (August 19, 2010) UNUSUAL SPORTS (continued): • Cheese rolling is a sport in England that takes place annually on Cooper’s Hill in Gloucestershire. This isn’t just any ordinary hill. Cooper’s Hill is so steep that it’s at a 70-degree angle in places. The sport involves a wheel of cheese that’s rolled down hill. The rules are simple: Run after the cheese, and try to be the one that has the cheese at the bottom of the hill. • Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian sport that was developed during the time of African slavery in Brazil. It’s actually a form of fighting and selfdefense, but is done through music, incorporating rhythm and dance. A group of people gather in a circle and take turns getting in the center to spar. In modern times, there is usually no contact, but rather near misses as the sport is more about technique and style than it is about beating up your opponent. • Underwater hockey? You betcha. Invented in 1954, underwater hockey is exactly what the name implies, but this form of hockey is non-contact. There are two teams of 10 people, but only three from each team are in play at one time. All players wear snorkels and flippers while playing the game. Another difference between underwater and regular ice hockey is that the underwater stick is one foot (30 centimeters) long as opposed to four feet (1 meter) long. • If you think underwater hockey sounds tough, you haven’t seen underwater rugby. This is a sport with two teams of six players. The object is to get a ball filled with saltwater into a goal to score. The ball must never leave the water. Each team has six players in the water and six substitutes that can switch with a player at any time. A player in this game must have extreme endurance, speed, mobility and strength. • Disc golf or Frisbee golf has been around since the 1960s but has gained a lot of popularity since then. The rules are similar to golf in that it’s played on a course, the strokes are counted, and the lowest score wins. However, instead of a ball, the players use discs. Instead of a green with sand traps, the course is usually not groomed and may be out in the woods, or at least has wooded terrain. Instead of trying to get a ball in a hole, you try to get your disc into a metal basket. • Unicycle hockey is like ice hockey or roller hockey but with unicycles instead of skates. Unlike ice hockey, there’s no physical contact with other players. Though there are unicycle hockey teams in the United States, Australia, Canada and other countries, there are only two countries that currently have national leagues: Germany and Great Britain. • Curling was originally an outdoor sport that originated in 16th century Scotland, but it is now an indoor sport. Since 1998, curling has been an Olympic sport. Two teams of four people each throw polished granite stones down an alley of ice, and then their teammates can help the stones along by sweeping them down the alley with brooms. Scoring is calculated by the way that the stones are strategically placed, and for this reason it is often called “chess on ice.” • Extreme croquet is closely related to lawn croquet, but the biggest difference between the two is that extreme croquet isn’t played in someone’s backyard. Instead it’s played in rough terrain. The rules are similar, but there are two wickets in extreme croquet as opposed to the single wicket in the backyard version of the game. • Netball is a particularly fast sport that requires a high level of skill. It was created by an American basketball coach attempting to improve basketball skills. Netball is now played predominantly by women in 25 countries throughout the world, particularly in Australia, New Zealand and England. There are seven players on each team and the aim of the game is to get the ball in the opposing goal hoop as many times as possible throughout a 60-minute match. Each team member plays a specific position and is restricted to an area on the court. • Remember playing Rock, Paper and Scissors with your buddies? If you’re good at it, there actually is a national league (USARPS), which has taken the schoolyard game to an extreme level, with official rules, tournaments and prizes up to $50,000. • Man versus horse? Yup. The annual Man Versus Horse Marathon requires stamina and agility. Taking place in the Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells, the marathon puts human contestants up against mounted horse contestants. This unusual sporting event started in 1980, after someone heard two men arguing about whether or not an individual could beat a horse in a cross country race. Soon after, the sport was born. • A popular activity for children, toe wrestling is now a competitive sport. The World Toe Wrestling Competition first started at a pub in England in 1976. Locals thought it would be a great idea to hold a competition where individuals lock toes together and force their opponent’s foot to the ground.

Are You Prepared to Lose Your Job? The National Foundation for Credit Counseling recently issued a newsletter with steps to take to prepare for possible job loss. Here are some ideas: • Don’t be caught off guard. Pay attention at work to any rumors of layoffs or closings. • Do your best work. Come in early and stay late. Say yes to special projects. • Polish your resume, especially if you’ve been on the same job for a long time. Spend the money to have a professional update it to highlight your most marketable skills. • Find out now what your company will offer for job retraining, placement help and severance packages. • Learn about government benefits and stay current on changes to those. • Take care of medical and dental issues now, while you have medical coverage. Learn about COBRA, and consider whether you can sign up on your spouse’s coverage. • Know how much you spend per month, make a budget and pinpoint areas where you can decrease spending. Cut down now and put the money away in savings. It’s suggested that you also add 10 percent of your current income to savings. • Pull your credit report now and have any errors fixed. If you apply for a job where a credit report is likely to be checked, a report that’s error-free is better than one that contains errors about old debt. • Pay down your debts while you have the income to do so. If you lose your job and fall behind on any payments, it will be much harder to climb out of that hole later when you’re re-employed. Deal with the debt now and you’ll only have to worry about everyday expenses. There’s one thing not on the list from NFCC, and it’s this: Stock up on a reasonable amount of nonperishable foods and other household items now. Canned fruit, vegetables and meat, as well as box dinners such as macaroni and cheese will come in handy if you lose your income. You’ll be able to conserve every dollar you have if you don’t have to continually shop and spend. Add in personal-care items like soap, deodorant, toothpaste and laundry detergent. If you’re interviewing for jobs, you’ll need to look your best: clean and wellfed. For more help, go to, scroll down and click Consumer Tools.

Tidbits® of Flagler & E. Volusia (August 19, 2010) Page 3 MUSIC LEGEND: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN On September 23, 1949, Bruce Springsteen was born, of course, “in the USA.” With his gruff but powerful vocals, the energetic singer has secured his spot on America’s list of rock superstars. • Springsteen was born in Long Branch, New Jersey, and attended Freehold Borough High School. His father, Douglas Frederick Springsteen, was, amongst other things, a bus driver. • The first song a young Springsteen learned play on the guitar was allegedly the Beatles’ “Twist and Shout.” • In the late 1960s, Springsteen performed briefly in a power rock trio known as Earth, playing in clubs in New Jersey. • Also around that time, Springsteen acquired the nickname “The Boss.” While playing club gigs with a local band, one of his tasks was to collect the band’s nightly pay and distribute it amongst the members. But Springsteen has never liked the nickname, due to his dislike of bosses. • Springsteen’s E Street Band has roots in reality. The actual E Street runs northeast through the New Jersey shore town of Belmar. According to Springsteen lore, the band took its name from the street because original keyboard player David Sancious’ mother lived there and allowed the band to rehearse in her house. • The Boss meets the King? After a 1976 concert in Memphis, Springsteen went to Graceland at three in the morning, jumped the wall and ran to the front door. Security grabbed him before he could make it to the door and sent him packing. Knocking wouldn’t have done much good, anyway. Elvis was in Lake Tahoe at the time. • In May 1977, Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt went to an Elvis Presley concert in Philadelphia. A few days later Springsteen wrote “Fire,” and allegedly sent a demo of the song to Presley that summer, hoping he might cover it. Whether the tape got sent or not, Presley died that August, and Springsteen wound up giving “Fire” to Robert Gordon. Gordon’s version of the song was covered by the Pointer Sisters who made it a hit in 1979. • One of his most famous songs, “Thunder Road,” was inspired by the 1958 Robert Mitchum movie of the same name. • Springsteen has been listened to all over the world, and even in space. During a December 1999 flight of the space shuttle Discovery, his song “Rendezvous” was played as the crew’s wake-up call. It was the third day of the mission, and the crew was scheduled to rendezvous with the Hubble Space Telescope. • Springsteen inspires some pretty extreme acts of fandom. Recently, “No Retreat, No Surrender,” a “worst-to-first countdown of every album cut in Springsteen history” came out. In all, the creators of the list ranked and wrote about (sometimes at length) 200 songs. They ranked “Real Man” from the album “Human Touch” last and “Born to Run” first. • Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Bono of U2 gave the induction speech. When U2 was inducted in 2005, Springsteen gave their induction speech, returning the favor. • To date, Springsteen has sold more than 65 million albums (including CDs) in the United States and 120 million worldwide.

Cat’s Aim Is Off the Mark

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: We adopted a 2-year-old spayed female cat. “Trudy” has a problem when she pees in her litter box. She tends to spray over the top of the box. Someone suggested a covered cat box, so I found two at garage sales. She still pees to the back, and the pee drips down the back of the box where it clips on. Why is she doing this? I use litter she likes. Is this just a habit, or should I take her to the vet and get checked out? We really don’t want to take her back just because of this. She is so sweet. Is there anything else we can do? -- Linda D., via e-mail DEAR LINDA: It’s always worth a trip to the veterinarian just to rule out any health problems. If Trudy checks out OK, there may not be much else to do after that. I’ve seen cats before that sprayed over the top of their litter boxes. In one case it was a dominant male in a three-cat household that clearly wanted everyone to know this was his box. He refused to use a covered box and would pee outside of the one that was installed, so his owner put the old box back and built a splashguard -- cardboard wrapped with foil -- that drained back into the litter box. That cat loved spraying on the splashguard all the more because of the sound of water hitting the tinfoil. Trudy does not appear to have this problem. She’s not refusing her litter box, which is very good. Don’t take her back because of this minor issue. If the veterinarian doesn’t find anything wrong, continue to rinse the litter box top after every cleaning, and perhaps rig a splash-guard system that prevents the urine from collecting in the rim.

Answers 1. Five Dimensions, The Hoochie Coochie Men, Soul Agents, Shotgun Express, The Jeff Beck Group and Faces. Stewart went solo in late 1969 with his first album, “An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down,” released in the U.S. as “The Rod Stewart Album.” 2. Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band.” The album was the band’s first under its shortened name, “Grand Funk.” 3. Marvin Gaye, in 1971. The song topped the R&B charts and hit No. 2 on the pop charts. 4. Frankie Avalon. He started performing at the age of 12. 5. Lou Christie, in 1965. Of all of Christie’s singles, it’s the only one that hit No. 1. 6. Her first album, “Horses,” in 1975. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Conservative author and commentator William F. Buckley Jr., a graduate of Yale University, once made the following controversial remark: “I’d rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.” • The first auctions in recorded history were held in 450 B.C. in Babylon. Sadly, and perhaps unsurprisingly, the items up for sale were humans. • The Goodyear company, known today for its automobile tires, was originally founded to produce rubber clothing and, oddly, musical instruments. • Ellen Axson Wilson is reported to have exchanged approximately 1,400 love letters with her husband, President Woodrow Wilson, during their marriage. • You might be surprised to learn that in 1952, the CIA conducted a study of UFO sightings, and concluded that the objects were a threat to national security. The report stated, “the reports of [sightings] convince us that there is something going on that must have immediate attention.” • If you’re family is like one-third of families across the country, you have a Scrabble game in your home. • It’s been reported that the world’s oldest piece of chewing gum is more than 9,000 years old. After that long, though, I wonder how they could tell what its original use was. • Experienced boot makers reportedly can get three pairs of the footwear out of a single ostrich hide.

• With school back in session soon (if it’s not already), you can save resources and money by reusing sandwich bags. It seems like such a small thing, but if you’re using the baggie for a sandwich, then just wrap the sandwich in a paper towel (which you can then use as a napkin) or a piece of waxed paper before you stick it in the bag. You can use the same sandwich bag all week long. • “Smashed bugs come right off of your windshield if you sprinkle baking soda on a damp rag and rub them out with the rag.” -- G.T. in Arkansas

• Want to keep your refrigerator operating efficiently? Try these two small tricks: First, clean the gaskets on the door, and replace them if they’re loose. If you close a dollar bill in the door and can pull it out easily, you need to replace the gaskets. Then, stock empty space with jars or pitchers of water. Cold water is refreshing and it helps keep the air in your fridge cold. • “To get rid of static cling on a skirt and slip, just pin a small safety pin to the inside of the hem.

• “Back-to-school clothes shopping can be draining when you have a preteen. I got tired of being the bad guy for saying ‘no’ to high-priced items, so I put my son in charge of his shopping budget. We went together, and after we took care of the essentials (undergarments, socks, etc.), he was allowed to spend the rest in a fashion of his own choosing. He quickly saw that one or two high-dollar outfits would eat up his whole budget. He splurged on one thing he loved and spent the rest much more rationally -- without any ugly looks or hard feelings!” -- R.G. in North Carolina Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
