BREAK THE ICE (continued): • Mauna Kea is one of the few places on earth where you can go from sea level to 14,000 feet (4267 m) in about two hours. This presents a serious risk for altitude sickness as there is about 40% less oxygen at its summit. • The observatory at Mauna Kea Visitor Information Center had over 16,000 people looking through its telescopes in 2009, the International Year of Astronomy. • The highest point in Canada is Mount Logan in Yukon Province at 19,551 ft. (5,959 m). The lowest high point in Canada is on Prince Edward Island in the Bonshaw Hills. It is only 466 feet (142 m) above sea level. On this island you are hardly ever more than five miles or eight kilometers from the sea or an inlet. • The highest point in the United States is Mt. McKinley in Denali National Park, Alaska. It is 20,320 feet (6,194 m) above sea level. Denali means “high one” in the language of the native Athabascan people in Alaska. • The highest point in the lower 48 states is Mt. Whitney in California at 14,495 ft. (4418 m.). Mt. Whitney is less than 100 miles (161 km) from Death Valley, the lowest point in North America. • Many “highpointers” travel to Florida to see Britton Hill. It is the lowest high point of any state in the U.S. at 345 ft. (105 m). • What are “highpointers?” They are a club that promotes climbing the high point of all 50 U.S. states. The 2009 convention was held in High Point State Park, New Jersey. The highest point in the park is the state’s high point at 1,803 feet (550 m) above sea level. Within the park is Dryden Kuser Natural Area which is the highest elevation swamp of its kind in the world where Atlantic white cedars grow.

• When you think of Colorado, you probably think of mountains. The state has more land over 10,000 feet (3048 m) than any other state, including over 50 peaks above 14,000 feet (4267 m), called the “Fourteeners.” • Dragila Way on the Idaho State University campus is a street named after Stacy Dragila. She won the first gold medal ever for women pole vaulters at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Her gold medal height was 15.1 feet (4.6 m). She later made a vault at 15.8 feet (4.83 m) in Ostrava, Czech Republic in 2004. • The highest point along the North Carolina Railroad between Goldsboro and Charlotte, North Carolina was incorporated as High Point in 1859. The city, known as the “Furniture Capital of the World” is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2009. The Biannual High Point Market attracts buyers from all 50 states and over 100 countries. • A public park that opened in New York City in June, 2009, has a “high point” theme. High Line Park is pretty unique it’s 30 feet above street level. The High Line was an elevated freight railroad line. Originally the line was at street level and known for frequent accidents. In fact, in the late 1800s and early 1900s a group known as the “West Side Cowboys” rode horses and waved red flags warning of approaching trains. In 1934 the High Line opened to train traffic, eliminating 105 street level crossings. The trains traveled above the streets and were connected to warehouses and factories.

By Samantha Weaver Of particular interest in these troubled economic times, it was British humor columnist Katharine Elizabeth Whitehorn who made the following sage observation: “The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any.” The fish known as the electric ray can produce a current strong enough to kill an adult human. If you are the parent of a young daughter, you are probably all too familiar with the Japanese export Hello Kitty. A new item has recently been added to the Hello Kitty line, but it is decidedly not for kids: The Super Hello Kitty Jewel doll is on the market for $150,000. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the character, Sanrio (the maker of Hello Kitty), Swarovski (known for high-end crystals) and Japanese jewelry maker I.K. have created a 4-inch-tall Hello Kitty of platinum, and studded the doll with 1,939 pieces of white topaz, 403 pink sapphires, eyes of black spinel and a nose of citrine. The whole thing is topped off with a one-carat diamond on its hair ribbon. The onion is actually a member of the lily family. The next time you have a little bit of food stuck in your teeth, consider this: More Americans choke on toothpicks than on any other object. In La Paz, Bolivia, you can find one of the most unusual prisons in the world. At San Pedro Prison, inmates have to purchase their cells. Those who are well off financially can buy private cells with bathrooms, television and kitchens. Those who are less lucky must share tiny rooms. Thought for the Day… “We have in fact, two kinds of morality, side by side: one which we preach, but do not practice, and another which we practice, but seldom preach.” - Bertrand Russell (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

Don’t wait until the end of December to do a year-end financial review. This is a good time to begin developing new habits that will help you save money next year. Here are some ideas: Utility bills: If you had a goal this year of reducing your utility expenses by always turning off lights and lowering the thermostat, did you do it? If your savings weren’t what you expected because you didn’t always follow through, set a goal for next year. Notch the thermostat down a degree or two and turn off lights you’re not using until it becomes an easy habit. Cell phones: If you’re on a monthly plan that gives you a certain number of minutes for a set price, chances are you use up those minutes because they’re there. You can save money, however, by changing to an inexpensive phone with pre-paid minutes that you refill as needed. Your cell phone usage is likely to go down when you consider that each call is costing you a nickel or a dime per minute. The initial savings: no monthly bill. Additional savings: fewer minutes used. Grocery coupons: You have to do the work -- cut them out of the paper, plan meals around items that are covered by the coupons -- but there is serious money to be saved using grocery coupons. Investigate online coupon sites, too. (Generate a throwaway e-mail address for those sites requiring that you sign up.) Check with your local store before you present them with printed coupons. Some stores won’t take them. Pay attention to expiration dates. Rule of thumb: Don’t be tempted to buy food your family won’t eat just because it looks like a good deal. Sales flyers, ads and Internet comparison: Get in the habit of looking at the flyers and ads in the newspaper. Compare any intended purchases to what you find online. Plus, a local store with a Web site might list specials that never show up in a print ad. Think used: Check thrift shops for merchandise in good condition. You can find clothing, furniture, tools, books, children’s games, housewares and much more at very low prices. Take some steps now, and you’ll be positioned to start the New Year with better money-saving habits.

BREAK THE ICE (continued): • Some tracks for the High Line were demolished in the 1960s. The last train on the High Line in 1980 pulled three carloads of frozen turkeys. The new park has been in the works for years with property owners and “Friends of the High Line” pushing for preservation and reuse as a public space. It is now owned by the city. • Mt. Hood is a dormant volcano and Oregon’s highest peak at 11,245 feet (3,427 m). It is the only ski area in North America opened every month of the year. Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, was built as a “Works Progress Administration” project funded by the U.S. government to put people to work during the “Great Depression.” It has been privately owned since 1955. • To be at the “timberline” is to be at the point on a mountain above where trees grow, due to environmental conditions that preclude such growth. • The tallest lighthouse in America is the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The tower height is 207 feet (63 m), although 10 feet (3 m) are underground. • High Point Café in the Mt. Airy area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a true neighborhood café where the owner hopes the coffee, food, and friendliness will be the high point” of your day! (Just like reading this Tidbits!)

• On Nov. 22, 1718, Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, is killed off North Carolina’s Outer Banks during a bloody battle with the British navy. Teach was the most infamous pirate of his day, winning the popular name of Blackbeard for his long, dark beard, which he was said to light on fire during battles to intimidate his enemies. • On Nov. 17, 1869, the Suez Canal, connecting the Mediterranean and the Red seas, is inaugurated. When it opened, the Suez Canal was only 25 feet deep. Major improvements began in 1876, and today an average of 50 ships navigate the canal daily, carrying more than 300 million tons of goods a year.
• On Nov. 16, 1907, Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory collectively enter the United States as Oklahoma, the 46th state. The name “Oklahoma” is derived from the Choctaw Indian words okla, meaning “people,” and humma, meaning “red.” • On Nov. 20, 1945, in Nuremberg, Germany, 24 highranking Nazis go on trial for atrocities committed during World War II. The Nuremberg Trials were conducted by an international tribunal, and charges ranged from crimes against peace, to crimes of war, to crimes against humanity.
• On Nov. 19, 1969, Brazilian soccer great Pele scores his 1,000th professional goal in a game, against Vasco da Gama in Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium. Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento in Tres Coracos, Brazil, in 1940, Pele scored 1,282 goals in 1,363 games during his career. • On Nov. 18, 1978, People’s Temple leader Jim Jones leads hundreds of his followers in a mass murder-suicide at their agricultural commune in remote northwestern Guyana. U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan, who had traveled to Jonestown to investigate, was murdered the day before as he attempted to leave.
• On Nov. 21, 1980, more than 350 million people around the world tune in to television’s popular primetime drama “Dallas” to find out who shot J.R. Ewing, the character fans loved to hate. The episode identified Kristin Shepard, J.R.’s wife’s sister and his former mistress, as the culprit. (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.
Strength Training OK for Young Children
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I would like to give my 10-year-old grandson some conditioning advice. He loves basketball. It has occurred to me that upper-body strength is helpful in shooting long shots and in positioning for rebounds. In high school, I had a well-developed lower body but a poorly developed upper body. This handicapped me when shooting long shots. I have added pushups to my daily exercises, and this has helped me in shooting three-pointers. My questions are: When is a good time for a boy to start building muscle? Are there any exercises you would recommend for upper-body strength building for a 10-year-old? -- J.M. ANSWER: The sports community, until recently, frowned on strength training (weightlifting, muscle building, resistance exercise) for children who had not reached puberty. They thought that children, before the male hormone surge that takes place at puberty, would not benefit from it. It’s been shown that they do, and that children as young as 7 show improvement in strength. The sports community also feared that weightlifting posed a health threat to young children whose bones are not completely calcified. Young bones have growth plates, sections of bone that have yet to become real bone. Growth plates permit bone elongation. These areas are areas of weakness. A well-supervised, well-designed weightlifting program doesn’t injure growth plates. In fact, such a program protects children from common sports injuries. All this applies to girls as well as boys. Your grandson can do the same exercises you do -- with less weight. Your pushups are a good example. Body weight is the weight being hoisted. Chin-ups are another strength-building exercise in which body weight is the stimulus for muscle growth. He also can lift barbells and dumbbells. He should start with a weight that he can lift 12 consecutive times without straining. When he can perform two sets of 15 consecutive lifts, you can increase the weight by one to 3 pounds and go back to the 12 lifts. Barbell and dumbbell curls and bench presses are good upper-body strengthbuilding exercises. A visit to the local library will pay off with books that show the details of many strength-building exercises. The booklet on fitness outlines aerobic exercise (not strength-building exercise) in detail. To order a copy, write: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1301W, 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 four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: A TV doctor claimed it is better to eat a big meal at lunchtime. If you eat a big meal at dinnertime, you go to bed without burning it off. I thought weight depended on total daily calorie intake versus total daily calorie burning, without regard for the time of the day. Am I wrong? -- B.B. ANSWER: I’m with you. This advice is similar to the advice not to eat anything after 6 p.m. because those late-in-the-day calories aren’t burned when you sleep. Calorie-burning is a round-the-clock business, and calories eaten at 10 p.m. can be burned the next day at 10 a.m. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

• Go Green Tip: Is that article of clothing you just picked up off the floor of your kid’s room genuinely dirty, or just barely worn? Install several hooks for items that can be worn again before washing. If you can’t get them to put tried-on clothes away, train your kids to lay them on the bed or over a chair, as opposed to on the floor. They are more likely to be mistaken for dirty and be washed, wasting water and electricity, as well as shortening the life of the clothes. • “This holiday season, I’d like to sit back and enjoy the company of my family and friends, so I am baking a batch of cookies each week and doubling one casserole or soup recipe each week. This way, I should have my holiday baking done and several cook-free nights to enjoy with others instead of bustling around the kitchen and missing everything. Someone put on a pot of coffee!” -- M.E. in Alabama • It’s this time of year that we are encouraged to look around us and think of the needs of others. Many families are planning holiday meals. Are there families in your neighborhood that are struggling? Perhaps someone at the senior center who doesn’t have family to gather with this Thanksgiving? Reach out to others, and do what you can to help. • “Save your toilet-paper rolls and make fire starters for just pennies: Just take a roll, stuff it with dried twigs, crumpled paper, dryer lint, grass, etc. Shred a candle and melt the wax to drizzle over the edges to keep the stuffing inside. Pack several together in a cute mini tote, and they even make great gifts. You can use them indoors or out.” -- I.L. in Pennsylvania • If you need to cover a plate and have run out of plastic wrap, check your bathroom. You can use a shower cap as a food-plate cover in a pinch. Just make sure it is clean, preferably unused. Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Argentina is the second largest country in South America, after Brazil, and eighth largest in the world. The Spanish claimed this country in 1516. Ancestry of 95% of the population is European. • The central street in Buenos Aires, the capital city, is Avenida 9 de Julio, which is the date of independence from Spain, July 9, 1816. Often referred to as “the widest street in the world,” it has ten lanes in each direction, with three medians. • Buenos Aires is called “Paris of South America” because of European flavor manifested by its people and architecture. • Dog walking is a busy occupation in Buenos Aires. It is not unusual to see ten or more dogs with one walker. Generally, the dogs are well-behaved but there is no requirement for dog walkers to clean after their dogs. Instead city workers clean the sidewalks each night. Watch your step! • The subway, called the “Subte” (short for subterraneo in Spanish and subterranean in English) in Buenos Aires was the first subway in both the southern hemisphere and Latin America. Opened in 1913, it is undergoing a major expansion. • Valdes Peninsula is a World Heritage Site that is home to enormous seal, elephant seal, and sea lion colonies. Many orca whales are in the surrounding waters. • South of Valdes Peninsula is a smaller peninsula, Punta Tombo, home to the largest colony of Magellanic penguins in the world…at least for part of the year. They are there from September until mid-March. This is the breeding ground for about 200,000 pairs – yes, about 400,000! • The Argentine Pampas is approximately 295,000 square miles (760,000 sq. km). Pampas is a Quechua Indian word that means “flat surface.” The Pampas stretches from the Andes Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean with a downward slope from 1,640 feet (500 m) to 66 feet (20m) above sea level at Buenos Aires. The area is mostly grasslands with few trees. Huge estancias (ranches) are home to gauchos (South American cowboys) and huge cattle herds. The region is also known for crops (including grapes) and wineries. • Argentina is in the southern hemisphere, so seasons are reversed from North America. Their winter is our summer. • Beef consumption per person in Argentina is about 154 pounds (70 k) per year, as of 2007 - the highest consumption in the world. Churrascarias, restaurants that serve the flavorful beef, lamb and more are numerous. • At the southern tip of Argentina, in a region separated by the Strait of Magellan, is Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, located on an island of Tierra del Fuego • The U.S. has the White House… in Argentina, it’s the Pink House! The Pink House is the presidential palace. It was painted its pink hue in the late 1800s for President Sarmiento who wanted to blend Federalist red and Unitarist white encouraging reconciliation of the country’s political parties. • Does this make you thirsty for more? A very popular drink in Argentina is yerba mate. It is a tea-like drink made from leaves of the Ilex Paraguariensis tree.

Publication as retaliation
While the First Amendment will always be there and writers have always tried their best to keep sports away from the gossip on the back pages of their tabloids and broadsheets, the wall started to break in the ‘60s when New York reporters started reporting on Yankee brawls at the Copacabana and in the late ‘70s when they started reporting on cocktail straws and marshmallow salesmen. Sold papers though, didn’t it? The leading sports weblog on the Internet, Deadspin, gets its hits, too - it’s probably the leading independent sports blog on the Web. A trip to Deadspin will offer viewers a fair share of rumor mongering, salacious gossip and a lot of irreverent, sarcastic takes on sports reporting that can supplement a fan’s intake of statistics, standings and (hopefully) actual games watched.
Deadspin has, of course, drawn a lot of fire from the traditional media, especially as of late. Deadspin’s “go for the garter” style of reporting and its easily apparent jealousy of “old media” types getting legitimate credentials into actual press boxes really seem to chap their hides. Still, it’s always kind of fun seeing the old guard -guys like Bob Costas (I’m sure Dick Enberg hasn’t a clue as to who they are) get annoyed with them. They can, on good weeks, come off like the bad kids in the back of the classroom but have really nice parents. A few weeks ago, The NY Times, ESPN and TIME magazine -- not exactly what you’d call lightweights in the media world -- took a Deadspin correspondent to task for threatening to “unload the in-box of all the sordid rumors we’ve received over the years about various ESPN employees.” The blogger was unhappy that he wasn’t getting any answers from ESPN’s brass about alleged sexual harassment or misconduct at the company. Spreading rumors, for most any other “old media” bastion, would be considered “libel.” What Mr. Internet was upset about was that he wasn’t getting there first. As Time, ESPN and the NY Times -- all of them credentialed -- pointed out, “tough (crap).” Anyway, offering publication as retaliation is no way to get a scoop -- at least not more than one. Did Deadspin’s correspondents think they were the first to find out a “Mr. Face” for a sports network had sex with his co-worker? Were they mad for not beating CNN with a “posted 6 minutes ago via web” post? I suppose all this soap-opera stuff matters to many, but not to me. I’d just rather watch the game. Pass me the beer and the chips and ask me if I care who Tony Romo is sleeping with. (I don’t.) Throw the ball! But that’s just my Sporting View. (I knew anyway.)

800-928-9304 SIT...AND ROCK A WHILE Large furniture for advertising, comfortable rocking chairs for relaxation, the need for comfort and the desire for style…we all enjoy our furniture. • The High Point, North Carolina Chamber of Commerce built a super chest of drawers for publicity in the 1920s. The furniture piece was actually a 20-foot (6.1 m) building that was the Chamber’s information center. The building was renovated in 1996 and became a 38-foot (11.6 m) tall Goddard-Townsend chest, including two gigantic socks dangling from a drawer symbolizing the area’s hosiery industry. • The largest furniture store in the world is also in High Point. Furnitureland South has more than 1,000,000 sq. ft. of showroom space. Furthermore, the store has the world’s largest highboy chest of drawers, an eye-catcher at 80 feet (24.4 m) tall. • Although Benjamin Franklin is credited with inventing the rocking chair, this claim is unconfirmed and questioned by some furniture historians. Regardless, rocking chairs have been around since the late 1700s. • Windsor Rocking chairs were named after their place of origin, Windsor Castle, in England. Bentwood Rockers were so-named because of their design – bent wood spindles. Boston Rockers were a type of Windsor made with a rolled seat around 1830. • Other rocking chair designs have their fans as well. With all of these styles, the origin goes back to the peaceful, calming to-and-fro movement of rocking horses and baby cradles. • Gangster Al Capone, had a business card claiming that he was an antique furniture dealer? It was a “front” that he used while carrying out criminal gang activity. • W.C. Page and Arthur E. Presnell were friends during World War I who talked of building chairs after the war. They opened the P&P Chair Company in August, 1926 and worked together for 22 years. Although Page eventually purchased Presnell’s shares, the company name remained the same. • In 1953 a routine purchase by Dr. Janet Travell from New York provided an unexpected boost to the P&P Chair Co. The doctor purchased what she called a “Carolina Rocker” for her office. The name caught on and was liked by P&P and subsequently trademarked and stamped on their rocking chairs. • A young U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, John Kennedy, experienced back pain from a war injury. He visited Dr. Travell’s office and sat in her Carolina Rocker. The oak chair’s woven seat and back were very comfortable for Kennedy so the doctor suggested he purchase one. She believed the rocker kept the muscles of the lower back moving, contracting and relaxing, thereby relieving tension. And… as they say, the rest is history! • When Kennedy became President of the United States in 1961, Dr. Travell became White House physician and the President’s rocking chair was moved from his Senate office to the Oval Office. He eventually acquired at least fourteen of the Carolina Rockers…and they became known as “Kennedy Rockers.” His original rocker from the Oval Office is on display at the JFK Library & Museum in Boston. • P&P Chair Company was purchased by Troutman Chair Company in December, 2008. They continue to build “Kennedy Rockers.”
Yet Another Reason to Use Computers
I recently wrote about how to get help with the computer, and mentioned some of the benefits, one of which is e-mail and chatting with family and friends. Now there’s a study out that gives another benefit: Computer use by seniors helps to keep depression at bay.
The Phoenix Center in Washington, D.C., recently issued a policy paper that claims that Internet use by seniors reduces depression by 20 percent. It says computers help seniors stay in contact with “sources of social support when face-to-face interaction becomes more difficult.” Not to be picky, but being a senior isn’t the only reason one might have difficulty having face-to-face interaction. Anyone who lives in a cold climate where the snow will be up to the windowsills by January could have a problem getting out. Those without a car who live in areas without good mass transit could have a problem, too. Still, one has to appreciate the effort. They’re trying to help us -- I think. Here’s how it works, according to the study:
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 aims to spend more than $7.2 billion toward making the Internet more available to everyone. The Phoenix study revealed that only 42 percent of seniors age 65 and older use the Internet. It computed the annual overall cost of depression -- $100 billion per year -- and concluded that there is a dollar benefit to bringing seniors onboard with broadband Internet service. So we appear to be a good place to spend some of that reinvestment money. If you’d like to read the study, go to the Phoenix Center’s Web site (www.phoenix-center.org) and click on “Internet Use and Depression Among the Elderly.” Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.
