Culligan is proud to continue 75 years of innovation by introducing The World’s Most Efficient Water Softener! Just like that high efficiency light bulb, a Culligan High Efficiency Water Softener can save you real money compared to a non-electric softener.

This week, Tidbits cracks open the geography books to study several points across the globe that begin with the letter “T”. • Nestled on the shores of Puget Sound, with a stunning view of nearby Mount Rainier, sits Tacoma, Washington, nicknamed the “City of Destiny.” In 1792, Captain George Vancouver became the first European to see Mount Rainier, originally called Mount Tahoma, from the Native American word for “mother of waters.” Vancouver named the peak for his friend Rear Admiral Peter Rainier. In 1911, Frank Mars and his wife Ethel began making and selling a variety of butter-cream candies from their Tacoma kitchen, a venture that would eventually become the Mars Candy Company, maker of the Milky Way. Another sweet treat, almond roca, also had its beginnings in Tacoma. • Florida’s state capital Tallahassee is the 128th largest city in the United States. Its name comes from an old Muskogean Indian word translated as “old fields.” The first European explorer to arrive there was Spaniard Hernando deSoto in 1539. Tallahassee became the capital in 1824, with a log cabin as the first Capitol Building. Out of Florida’s 497 verified species of birds, 372 of them can be seen in Tallahassee. • When Taipei 101 opened in 2004, this 101-floor skyscraper grabbed the title of world’s tallest building and remained so until 2010.

The city takes its name from an Iroquois word meaning “place where trees stand in the water.” Toronto ranks high on the list of the world’s “most livable cities” based on quality of living.

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Picky people don’t always pickle peppers, but they might pick on you. In the upcoming week, wear emotional armor to protect yourself from any temporary unpleasantness. This is not the time to take a stand. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The week ahead can be rewarding if you work hard and apply yourself. Avoid tangling with authority figures by challenging their right to be in charge. Remain unruffled if someone seems to be a control freak, dictatorial or overbearing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Speak kindly. Like a hummingbird, you’re happy and satisfied when sweet nectar is on the tip of your tongue. Avoid making hard-edged pronouncements, being judgmental, or putting your foot down during the week ahead. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid taking implied criticism too personally. Here and there during the week ahead, someone could say or do something that seems unkind or harsh. Remain thrifty with your cash and generous when people make mistakes. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sit on your hands. Ambitions could rise up and swallow you whole, so it’s best not to meddle or tinker with a situation until your judgment improves. In the week ahead, maintain a low profile and get plenty of rest whenever you can. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The week ahead may bring old friends back into your immediate vicinity or put you in contact with the elderly. Adjust your attitude to meet or exceed the expectations of others. A job or assignment may be repetitive and monotonous. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use old-fashioned good manners to avoid a showdown. Your natural inclination to be a peacemaker can come in handy in a dispute. You might feel insecure about your financial status or creative abilities in the week ahead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put burgeoning business ideas on the back burner. This is a week in which hard work will be required just to keep up and get caught up. Frequent repairs and breakdowns on the home front may keep you busier than usual. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To avoid getting in trouble, you might inadvertently beat around the bush with the wrong end of the stick. In the week ahead, pay attention to meeting deadlines and paying your bills on time. Don’t procrastinate. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” Take to heart the Dalai Lama’s words in the week to come. You may face numerous opportunities to do the wrong thing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your “stuff and nonsense” meter might be going full blast this week. People may seem critical and accusatory with little reason, but it’s up to you to avoid confrontations. A petty quarrel could cause more trouble than it’s worth. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Hold off on starting any new projects or making any important commitments in the week ahead. This is a time to refine your plans and look for loopholes or pitfalls. Don’t dwell on the negatives, just fix them.

▶Canada’s 42 national parks account for about 2% of the land mass in the country. ▶About 45% of Canada’s landmass consists of permafrost. ▶A hybrid grizzly/polar bear found in NWT in 2006 was dubbed a “grolar bear.” ▶Quebec’s Ice Hotel, built each December and opened in January, sports 85 beds made of ice lined with deer furs. Bathrooms, located in a separate building, are the only part of the hotel that is heated. It takes 60 workers about six weeks to build the hotel each year, using 15,000 tons of custom-made snow along with 500,000 tons of ice. Walls are up to four feet thick. The entire structure lasts only four months and is gone by April. ▶Scottish brewmaster Alexander Keith set up shop in Halifax in 1820. He was born on October 5, and ever year on his birthday, locals commemorate his contribution to beer by lovingly scattering bottle caps and empty beer bottles on his grave. ▶The only country in the world that’s larger than Canada is Russia. In terms of size, Canada is followed by China, U.S., Brazil, Australia, and India. ▶There are 98 legal border crossings between the U.S. and Canada.

Under A Spell

A prince was put under a spell so that he could speak only one word each year. If he didn’t speak for two years, the following year he could speak two words and so on. One day, he fell in love with a beautiful lady. He refrained from speaking for two whole years so he could call her “my darling.” But then he wanted to tell her he loved her, so he waited three more years. At the end of these five years, he wanted to ask her to marry him, so he waited another four years. Finally, as the ninth year of silence ended, he led the lady to the most romantic place in the kingdom and said, “My darling, I love you! Will you marry me?” And the lady said, “Pardon?”

News from the Shelter

Make a Difference... Volunteer! Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer experience? Look no further than the Moose Jaw Humane Society! The Society truly has the best group of volunteers, dedicated and giving as they are. We have volunteers who walk dogs in all kinds of weather. We are fortunate to be located right by the Rotary Trail, a perfect place to walk dogs without worrying about traffic or slippery sidewalks. Our dogs love to get out for walks, and it is so good for them to be socialized with a variety of people. There are also dedicated cat cuddlers, volunteers who come in to spend time in the cat room, petting and cuddling the cats and playing with the kittens. This is also so important to making the cats more social and therefore more adoptable. With an incredible line-up of fundraising events coming up this year, we will need even more people to help with some very specific volunteer gigs. The Humane Society is getting ready for one of the most exciting events, our Spring into Summer raffle, which will require an army of enthusiastic volunteers willing to sell tickets at various events and venues like the mall, grocery stories and RV and Boat sales from now until the grand-prize draw in May. If you have a few hours to spare and a desire to make a difference, we would love to meet you. Our volunteer form is available online or at the Shelter. For further information or to volunteer, please contact the Shelter at 692-1517 and ask to speak to Stephenie Campbell or Dawn Cardell, Promotions and Fundraising Coordinators, or email us at donations@mjhs.ca or events@mjhs.ca .

“For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home.”

These girls have shown great patience and an understanding since they have arrived. They look at you like the child that hadn’t been invited to the party. They will need families that can provide them with comfort, happy moments and training. They need to feel proud of themselves and so they can walk much taller with life skill in their pocket. They maybe tender and shy right now, but have been slowly coming out if their shells. They are absorbing life’s lessons like a sponge. Sadly this litter has never experienced life indoors and is now learning the comforts that come from having a soft place to land and lots of love. These girls would love a family that will include them in their life inside and outside! I’m telling you though these girls are sweet enough to make your teeth hurt!

She is not really bothered by dogs or other cats. She is just looking for a warm, soft place to call her own and a family to feed and love her. Josephine also really enjoys watching a tap drip, and has been heard to say that is better than television any day.

In October, 1881, the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place in Tombstone, Arizona, between the Clanton Gang and the Earp brothers, Virgil, Morgan, and Wyatt, aided by Doc Holliday. Three outlaws were killed in the gunfight, during which about 30 shots were fired in 30 seconds. The fight didn’t really take place in the O.K. Corral, but rather six doors west of the corral’s entrance.

Star” or “Panther Across the Sky”) grew up to be a key figure in the War of 1812. He is quoted with these words of wisdom: “Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.” • Back in 1950, NBC radio was home to a popular radio quiz show known as Truth or Consequences. Looking for a creative way to celebrate the program’s tenth anniversary, the host Ralph Edwards announced that he would air the program from the first American town to rename itself after the show. Hot Springs, New Mexico jumped at the chance, and on March 31 of that year, the residents voted in favor of the switch, and the very next day, Ralph Edwards and the crew flew in for the anniversary broadcast. For the next 50 years, Edwards visited the town each May for their annual fiesta. Every April 1, Truth or Consequences, or “T or C” as the locals call it, celebrates Ralph Edwards Day. • A small Japanese fishing village named Edo founded around the year 1200 has grown to the world’s most populous metropolitan area with 8,949,447 residents. Edo was renamed Tokyo in 1868, when it became the imperial capital. Tokyo’s entire urban area has a population of 35,623,327. The city had already reached 1,000,000 people back in the 1720s. It’s not only the most populous city in the world, it’s also the most expensive, with the highest cost of living worldwide. • Texas is home to the towns of Telephone and Telegraph. Telephone, Texas was named because the only telephone in the area was in the community’s general store. About 210 people live there these days. Telegraph’s name was based on all the telegraph poles cut to build communication lines to the U.S. Army forts just east of town. Today, it’s pretty much a ghost town, population, 3. • If you like fireworks, you’ll love the city of Tondabayashi, Japan, home to the largest annual fireworks display in the world. Several displays are held every August, with the main display consisting of 120,000 shells fired in less than an hour. • The Native Americans gave Ten Sleep, Wyoming its unusual name. This Indian rest stop was 10 days’ travel, or “10 sleeps” from Fort Laramie to the southeast and Montana’s Indian Agency to the northwest. Today this little community boasts 260 residents. • Mahatma Gandhi called Thiruvananthapuram, India, that country’s “Evergreen City.” This ancient city has been a busy trade center since 1000 B.C. It is home to the temple of Vishnu, the richest temple in the world, with its monumental items and assets valued in the $15 billion range. • Edgar Rice Burroughs was 35, nearly broke, and selling pencil sharpeners when he wrote the first Tarzan book. Beginning in 1912, Burroughs published 26 novels about our favorite jungle hero. His success allowed him to purchase a 550-acre ranch north of Los Angeles, which he appropriately named Tarzana. Within in a few years, the city had grown to surround the ranch, and Burroughs sold off part of his property for new homesites. This small community, incorporated in 1917, is still known as Tarzana, California, with a population of around 35,000.

FAMOUS CANADIANS: MORLEY SAFER

It would be tough to find someone who hasn’t seen the face of Morley Safer on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Let’s trace his famous career back to his Canadian roots. • Toronto, Ontario, was home to an Austrian Jewish family, Max Safer, an upholsterer, and his wife Anna. In 1931, their son Morley was born. After Morley finished high school, he enrolled in the University of Western Ontario in London. At age 20, he landed his first job in journalism as a reporter for Woodstock, Ontario’s Sentinel-Review, and he dropped out of college. After a few other newspaper jobs, he was hired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a correspondent. • Safer was an eminent war correspondent, beginning with the 1956 Egypt-Israel conflict. He joined CBS in 1964, and moved to Vietnam, where he opened the network’s news bureau in Saigon, where he would remain for two years. It was his report on a “search and destroy” mission to the village of Cam Ne that first alerted viewers to the traumatic conditions of the Vietnam War. President Lyndon Johnson reacted negatively to Safer’s report, calling the head of CBS to complain. Johnson ordered a security check done on Safer, certain that he was a communist. LBJ was informed that Safer “wasn’t a communist, just a Canadian.” • Safer moved to London, England in 1967 as the city’s bureau chief, holding the post for three years, while still covering the world’s conflicts. In fact, in 1968, he proposed to his future wife over the phone while reporting from Nigeria, where he was reporting on that country’s civil war. • In 1970, Safer received the job offer that has taken him to this day. CBS’ newsmagazine 60 Minutes was in its third season when Safer accepted the position. He is now in his 44th season on the program. While covering the news on the

program, Safer branched out into writing, and became the author of a best-selling book in 1990, Flashbacks: On Returning to Vietnam. Twenty-five years after he left Vietnam, Safer returned in 1989 to film a report for 60 Minutes and ended up writing of his recollections as a war correspondent, as well as his observations of Vietnam then and now. • Safer’s 1983 investigative report on a wrongly-convicted armed robber sentenced to life in prison highlighted new evidence that led to Lenell Geter’s release from prison. Safer spent six months doing “the work the police didn’t do,” and contradicted their “proof” of Geter’s guilt. Within days of the broadcast, Geter was released. • Safer has expressed his opinion on today’s reality TV programming: “What have reality shows got to do with reality? It is beyond unreality; there is nothing real about it. Reality TV is sleazy, it is manipulative. It is as momentary as anything in popular culture.” • Safer is a 12-time Emmy Award winner, along with a Lifetime Achievement Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and three George Foster Peabody Awards. During Safer’s tenure at 60 Minutes, the broadcast has been in the Top Ten highest-rated programs for 22 consecutive seasons. It’s the only program to finish first in three different decades.

Safety Bits

Winter Ice Safety

It appears like magic...sneaking up on you... usually in the dead of the night. Everything has been normal, then suddenly the lake down the road is covered with a shiny new coat of ice...and now you start planning that big first ice fishing expedition. What looks safe from shore can be a trap to send you plunging into ice water, which can ruin your whole day... not to mention possibly ending your life. PROCEED WITH CAUTION… “Thick and blue, tried and true...thin and crispy, way too risky!” The only way to tell how thick the ice is, of course to cut a hole in it. Start new shore and make several cuts as you go out. Remember that ice thickness is inconsistent and follows water currents as it freezes. On really cold days, you are likely to hear the ice rumbling and crackling which are actually the sounds of pressure being relieved as more ice forms beneath the ice...the ice is actually getting safer. OOPS! • Don’t PANIC if you fall through the ice • Use your legs to kick behind you to keep from being pulled under • If you cannot get to safety, CALL FOR HELP! • Slip boots off to make treading water easier IF SOMEONE ELSE FALLS IN THE ICE…”REACH, THROW, ROW GO” • REACH-use stick, branch or fishing pole • THROW-rope, PFD, anything that floats • ROW-row or push small boat, canoe • GO-call for help IS THE ICE SAFE??? • 3 inches = UNSAFE • 4 inches = 1 person (200 lbs) • 5 inches = 1 snowmobile (800 lbs) • 7 inches = group activities (1500 lbs) • 9-11 inches = light truck (2000 lbs) REMEMBER… ...ice may not be the same thickness all over. ...be extra careful on rivers and streams because the ice may look thicker than it actually is because moving water wears down the ice from beneath. ...stay away from multiple pressure cracks. A frozen pond or lake is a beautiful part of Northern Saskatchewan in winter...ENJOY IT, but enjoy it safely! Brought To You By:

STARTING THIS WEEK: “GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON”: The phrase “Red Wedding” joined television’s lexicon for all time with this round of the acclaimed HBO drama series. The power struggle among the Seven Kingdoms continues, with various forces contending to assume ultimate rule. Diana Rigg, Ciaran Hinds and Thomas Brodie-Sangster are among those joining a cast that includes Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iain Glen and Richard Madden. DVD extras: four “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentary by cast and crew; deleted and extended scenes. **** (Not rated: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray) “BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE COMPLETE EPIC SERIES”: The late-1970s show that started the franchise gets a home video re-launch, with Lorne Greene as Commander Adama, leader of a spaceship fleet transporting the last remnants of mankind. Close on their tail are the sinister Cylons, determined to destroy the humans. Lt. Starbuck was a man in this first version, played by Dirk Benedict, and Richard Hatch also stars as Adama’s son, Captain Apollo. Jane Seymour has a featured role early in the show. *** (Not rated: V) “HELLBENDERS”: The recent “Thor” movies have helped the notion of a Norseman’s visit to contemporary America be accepted, but whereas that one was pretty benevolent, the one in the case of this horror tale has no reservations about destroying New York. That calls a fraternity of offbeat clergymen into action, since they may be the only ones capable of vanquishing the villain. Stars include Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr. and Dan Fogler. DVD extras: two “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentary by writer-director J.T. Petty. ** (R: AS, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray) “NURSE JACKIE: SEASON FIVE”: Emmy winner Edie Falco continues her acclaimed performance as a medical assistant with her own related problems in this season of the Showtime series. Out of rehab, Jackie is celebrating a new lease on life when an accident suddenly makes her a patient in her own hospital ... but the situation has a silver lining, since the investigating policeman (Adam Ferrara) takes a clear interest in her. Fellow Emmy recipient Merritt Wever - who famously gave one of the shortest award acceptance speeches ever last fall - and Peter Facinelli also continue as cast regulars. *** (Not rated: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray) “TOM AND JERRY: MOUSE TROUBLE”: The literal cat-and-mouse games are in high gear again, as this collection of 30 animated short subjects features one of the most beloved cartoon teams of all time. In one of the tales, Tom is working at a hotel where Jerry is a guest ... and you just know it won’t take long for staff-and-customer relations to go south under those circumstances. *** (Not rated: V) “THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN: SEASON 5”: The final round of the adventure series that made the word “bionic” commonplace stars Lee Majors as Steve Austin, the ex-astronaut refitted with artificial limbs that make him stronger and faster after a devastating accident. Many of the episodes in this season hearken back to earlier ones, with our hero again facing Bigfoot (played by Ted Cassidy, previously Lurch on “The Addams Family”) as one example. Other guest stars include Rick Springfield, Suzanne Somers and Martin Caidin, who wrote the book (“Cyborg”) the series was based on. *** (Not rated: V) Answers on page 15

IT’S VAL- DAY

COPYING

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but this week Tidbits is switching the focus to other words that begin with Val-. • According to ancient Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic hall where the souls of heroes slain in battle are received. The Valkyries are the maidens of the god Odin who choose which soldiers will die and then escort them to the afterlife. According to legend, the helmeted Valkyries descend from the heavens in bolts of lightning wearing waist-length armor carrying brightly-shining spears. In 1870, composer Richard Wagner wrote his well-known opera “The Valkyries,” containing the famous piece “Ride of the Valkyries,” in which the mythological creatures greet each other and sing their battle-cry. Fans of the animated Elmer Fudd might know that he frequently sings, “Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit” to this tune as he stalks Bugs Bunny. • The adventures of another mythical Norse figure are chronicled each week in the Sunday newspaper’s comics section. Artist Hal Foster introduced Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur in 1937, and the story has continued for more than 3,900 strips. Prince Valiant is a Nordic prince from the Norwegian west coast who, in sixth-century England, journeyed to Camelot, where he became friends with Sir Gawain, Sir Tristram, and Merlin. King Arthur respected Valiant enough

DIRECT MAILING

to dub him a Knight of the Round Table. The Prince owns a magical singing sword named Flamberge, crafted by the creator of Arthur’s powerful Excalibur. Valiant met his lady love Aleta, Queen of the Misty Isles on a Mediterranean island. He married her in a 1946 comic, and they had children in 1947, 1951, 1962, and 1982, and a grandchild in 1987. The tale was made into a movie by 20th-Century Fox in 1954, starring Robert Wagner as Valiant. • Northeastern Italy is home to a wine-producing region that is the source for one of the most famous red wines in the world, Valpolicella. Only Chianti ranks higher in total Italian wine production. Three varietals of grapes give this dry table wine its light fragrant flavor and aroma, the Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. • Many people who suffer from insomnia opt to use an herbal supplement taken from the root of the valerian plant. Since ancient times, this medicinal herb has been used as a remedy for sleep disorders. Even Hippocrates was aware of its sedative properties. Some followers of alternative medicine also swear by valerian’s abilities to treat nervous tension, excitability, stress, intestinal cramps, and as a muscle relaxant. • There are two major varieties of oranges, navels and Valencias. So what’s the difference? Navels are available from November through May, while Valencias are in season from February through

52 INCH POSTER & BANNER PRINTING October. Navels are the ones with the button formation on the end and are seedless. Valencias are thin-skinned with seeds, and have a very high juice content. • Most folks know that the valedictorian is the student with the highest rank in a graduating class. But how many know that a valetudinarian is a person with a weak or sickly constitution, who is always concerned about becoming a chronic invalid? Another valword, valediction, refers to the act of bidding farewell.
