by Sarah Bates ather’s Day is the 3rd Sunday in June every year. It is a time to celebrate dad – and what better way to celebrate than to learn some fantastic, fatherly facts? • Did you know that Grace Kelly’s father, John B. Kelly Sr., was a triple Olympic Gold Medal winner in rowing? • In 1990, both Ken Griffey Jr. and Sr. played for the Seattle Mariners. It was the first time a father and son had played together on the same team in the major league. • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was originally named Michael like his father. After a trip to Germany, Michael Sr. changed both their names to Martin after the Protestant leader. • A. A. Milne, author of Winnie-the-Pooh, based the character of Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh and friends off of his son and his stuffed animals. • The Egyptian deity Amon, represented by the ram, is the father of the moon. • Father’s Day will celebrate its 100th Anniversary in 2010. • Grammatically it should be Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day, as we are celebrating multiple mothers and fathers. However, it was initially spelled on the proposal to make it a holiday as Father’s Day and that just stuck. turn the page for more! • Research shows that over 110 million Father’s Day cards are exchanged annually. 50% of those are purchased for dads, 20% are purchased for husbands.

Caregivers Can Get Help With Medicare

I

f you care for someone who is on Medicare, there is information available online that can make your role a lot easier. The booklet Medicare Basics for Caregivers is available on the National Institutes of Health site for seniors (www.nihseniorhealth.gov). Prescription-drug coverage, continuing-care options, a link to Medline Plus and a FAQ are all there. Scroll down to M for Medicare Basics for Caregivers. Go to www.medicare.gov/publications and do a search for publication number 11034 for a 24-page document called Medicare Basics, A Guide for Families and Friends of People with Medicare. It's a .PDF file that you can print out. Also on that same search page are other helpful publications you can access. Part of the role of caregiver is being an advocate. When it comes to Medicare, the more you know about resources and benefits, the better you can help wade through the maze of decisions to be made and paperwork to fill out. Your knowledge will help, too, when it comes to finances and hospital choices. Even understanding premiums, co-pay and deductibles will go a long way in helping the person you care for. At Medline Plus, www.medlineplus.gov, put Medicare in the search box and you'll find links to all types of Medicare information, including clinical trials, prevention and screening, and financial information. At the Medicare site for caregivers (www.medicare.gov/caregivers), you'll find information of getting legal help and local support, finding doctors who take Medicare, enrolling, drug plans, nursing-home alternatives and more. Don't miss the link to information on documentation: A durable power of attorney (also called health-care proxy) can allow you to make decisions in an emergency. The more information you have at hand, the more valuable the care you give. *** Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

The Flagler County Education Foundation

23rd Annual

Senior Scholarship Ceremony The Flagler County Education Foundation sponsored the 23rd Annual Senior Scholarship Ceremony which took place on May 14th, 2009, for graduating seniors of Matanzas and Flagler Palm Coast High Schools. This ceremony has come along way since 1986 when it began. In the beginning the ceremony was the brainchild of the Flagler Palm Coast Kiwanis Club and the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce. In 1986 a little over $6,000 in scholarships were awarded. In 2006 the community thought a milestone was reached with scholarships being handed out totaling $168,000, but this year 201 scholarships were handed out totaling $372,500 awarded to Flagler County's outstanding graduates. The Senior Scholarship Ceremony Title sponsors this year were Winn Dixie and the Flagler/Palm Coast Kiwanis Club. Thanks again to those who funded a scholarship, it takes a village to raise a child. Flagler County should be proud! For more information on the Flagler County Education Foundation and their many programs supporting students and teachers, please visit www.FlaglerEdFoundation.org.

FATHERLY FACTS

Continued from pg. 1

• In Thailand, Father’s Day is celebrated on the same day as the king’s birthday. King Phumiphon was born December 5, 1927. • There isn’t a formal Father’s Day celebration in Germany but there is a holiday just for men called Männertag (Men’s Day). • Did you know there are stay at home dad in the animal kingdom? The rhea is a flightless South American bird similar to an emu in appearance. It is the male rhea who builds the nest and incubates the eggs, much like male Emporer penguins guard and incubate their eggs while the mothers hunt. • Sonora Dodd was listening to a Mother’s Day service at church when she thought there should a holiday honoring fathers. She held her own father, William Smart in particularly high esteem, as he was a widowed Civil War veteran who had raised Sonora and her five brothers himself. • Mrs. Dodd proposed the celebration to the Spokane Ministerial Alliance in her hometown of Spokane, Washington and the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane on June 19th, 1910. • In 1924, President Coolidge showed his support for making Father’s Day a national holiday. It was in 1966 that President Johnson actually proclaimed it a holiday throughout the nation. However, it wasn’t until 1972 that President Nixon made it an official U.S. holiday. • The rose is the official flower of Father’s Day. Red roses are worn if a father is still alive. White roses are worn in remembrance of a father who has passed away. • Father’s Day cards are one of the Top Five holiday cards sold each year. It is the 4th largest card-sending holiday after Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. • Father’s Day is not an official holiday in Taiwan, but it is widely celebrated on August 8th. The pronunciation of the word for the number eight in Mandarin Chinese (ba) is similar to the pronunciation of the word that means father, so father’s day in often called Baba Day in Taiwan. • Americans are expected to spend $11 billion on Father’s Day gifts this year. The average gift costs about $27.60 per person. • Neckties are the #1 gift on Father’s Day. • Other popular gifts for dad are tools. Did you know there are over 14,257 hardware stores in the U.S. alone? • There are over 64.3 million fathers in the U.S. and over 159,000 are stay-at-home dads. • Darwin’s Frog, named after and discovered by Charles Darwin, is a native frog to the forests

and streams of Argentina and Chile. The female frog lays about thirty eggs and the male guards them until they hatch. The male then takes the tadpoles and carries them in his vocal pouch as they develop. The tadpoles develop in the baggy skin of the chin, feeding off their egg yolk until they are mature. Talk about a dedicated dad! • Zeus is the Father and King of the Greek gods. He is credited with fathering Ares, Aphrodite, Orion, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Persephone and Heracles. He had consorts with mortal women as well as divine and fathered Helen of Troy by a mortal. • Father Knows Best (1954) first aired on the radio, running six years of original episodes before moving solely to television. • Pater Patriae, a Latin honorific, means “Father of his Country,” or literally “father of his fatherland.” It was used to describe many ancient Roman leaders like Caesar Augustus. Nero was offered the honor during the first year of his reign, but because of his youth (he was seventeen at the time) he turned it down although he didn’t hesitate to accept it the second time around. • The world’s current oldest father is Nanu Ram Jogi, a farmer from India. His fourth wife, Suburi, gave birth to their seventh child in 2007 when he was 90 years old. Mr. Jogi has approximately twenty-one children and twenty grandchildren. • Papa John’s Pizza is the third largest take-out/delivery pizza chain in the United States. It was founded by John Schnatter in Jeffersonville, Indiana in 1984. • What does Father Time have in common with the Grim Reaper? Both ancient, scythe wielding figures stem from the Greek god Chronos, god of time. His Roman counterpart is Saturn, the god of agriculture and this connection brought about the association with a scythe/sickle. • Father Edward Joseph Flanagan was a priest of the Roman Catholic Church. He founded the orphanage Boys Town in 1917. • Jacob Cats was a Dutch writer of poetic emblem books, which were widely popular in the 17th century. He was affectionately known by his peers as “Father Cats.” • Actress Anjelica Huston was in two films directed by her father, John Huston. They were Prizzi’s Honor (1985) and The Dead (1987). • “A father carries pictures where his money used to be.” – Anonymous. 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

Confessions of a Disorganized Parent

M

y favorite part of Family Circle magazine used to be the back section that listed clever tips on how to be organized -- ways to arrange your paperwork so that you could find important documents (permission forms, health records) or ways to shape up your kids' rooms so they could find their shoes each morning. In all the years I've read the magazine, I've only incorporated one of those suggestions -buying a basket to put at the foot of my staircase. Our basket never gets emptied; however, it's a great place to throw things. Hello. I'm an unorganized parent. I've spent years feeling strongly that there was an organized person inside of me waiting to bust out. In the past few months, I've had to admit that what I'm feeling must be nothing more than a case of indigestion. At 41, I may never be the type of person who, when taking coupons to the grocery store, first checks to see if they've expired. Or the kind of mom who knows where everything is, such as the new laces I bought yesterday for my son's tennis shoes. You know you are not a member of the Organized Parents Club and that things are out of order when: • Your kid has to pull blue jeans from the dirty clothes hamper to wear because you forgot to do laundry over the weekend. • You carry a day planner just so you will look as if you belong in the Organized Parents Club. • You have a brain lockdown when you enter a store, forgetting what you were supposed to buy (supplies for a science-fair project due tomorrow). Instead you purchase toilet paper and panty hose. Neither of which will be useful for the assignment. Therefore, a second trip to the store is necessary. • Birthday presents for your kids' friends are bought on the way to the party and wrapped in the car (if you remembered to bring tape and scissors, that is; otherwise you run back into the store to buy a birthday bag). • You could take a friend to lunch with the money you've wasted on library late charges. • An invitation with RSVP printed on it usually gets buried under paperwork and leaves you with the haunting feeling of "Remembering Something Vaguely Perhaps." • You finally remember to put something on your calendar -- a meteor shower that happens once every century -- but you learn that you marked the wrong date and that you've missed the event. "I guess if I live to be 110 I'll get to see it," your miffed kid tells you. • Burned-out light bulbs in your house are changed about once every decade. • Your kids are scared to open your closets and cabinets. Doing so will result in an avalanche and will require a search team to find your children. • You collect "How to Be Organized" books and dream of the day you will finally make the transformation. Thinking about becoming organized counts for something. Right?

Jeff Gordon Still a Wonder

CONCORD, N.C. -- Jeff Gordon, who will turn 38 in August, remains remarkably youthful. It is, however, misleading, as apparent youth often is. "I've always said, as a race-car driver, that you never stop learning ... ever," Gordon says. Gordon is one of those athletes about whom the phrase "forever young" seems appropriate. His voice remains that of a teenager, still etched in wonder even as the words coming from his mouth evoke experience and maturity. Earlier this season, Gordon won the 82nd race of his career. Only five drivers -- Richard Petty (200), David Pearson (105), Bobby Allison (84), Darrell Waltrip (84) and Cale Yarborough (83) -have won more. Only two, Petty and Dale Earnhardt, have won more than four championships. Gordon won officially for the first time in the Coca-Cola 600 on May 29, 1994, almost 15 years ago. "I was thrilled to get my first win here," he said of
