• The distinction of being the nation’s youngest living soldier to receive the highest military honor, the Medal of Honor, belongs to former Marine William Kyle Carpenter. The medal was awarded for his bravery during a 2010 tour in Afghanistan. Then 21 years old, Carpenter shielded a fellow Marine from a hand grenade lobbed at their location, saving the Marine’s life. Carpenter’s right arm was broken in more than 30 places, his jaw was shattered, he received shrapnel to his head, and he lost his right eye. After spending 2 ½ years in the hospital where his face was reconstructed, Carpenter was released, and enrolled in the University of South Carolina, graduating in 2017. He has also become a marathon runner. •

During World War II, Polish resistance member Witold Pilecki deliberately got himself arrested by the Nazis. His purpose was to provide intelligence from within the concentration camp Auschwitz to the Polish Army and the Western Allies. During his 2 ½ years inside the death camp, Pilecki sent information of the atrocities inside the camp, trying to convince the Allies that five million people had been exterminated. He managed to escape from Auschwitz in 1943.

HEROES (continued): • Born into slavery in Maryland, Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross) worked as a field hand and endured numerous beatings. After a daring escape, this AfricanAmerican abolitionist returned to the South 19 times to lead dozens of slaves to freedom through the network of safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. Despite the reward on her head, which swelled to $40,000, she managed to dodge bounty hunters, never losing a single person. In addition to her U.R. activities, she also operated as a Civil War scout and a spy. Because she was paid just $200 over a three-year period, Harriet supported herself by selling baked goods and homemade root beer. Following the war, she opened the Home for Indigent and Aged Negroes in New York, funded by giving speeches and selling copies of her biography. • Thomas Burnett, Mark Bingham, Todd Beamer, and Jeremy Glick all boarded United Airlines Flight 93 in Newark, New Jersey, on September 11, 2001 for different reasons. Burnett learned of the destruction of New York City’s Twin Towers via a cell phone call from his wife, and upon realizing that their own plane was controlled by terrorists, whose plan was to use the plane as a missile to destroy government buildings in Washington, D.C., the four men devised a plan to take the plane back from the hijackers. Jeremy Glick’s last words to his wife from the plane were, “We’re going to rush the hijackers.” Todd Beamer was the passenger who spoke the now-famous words, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!” Thanks to the heroic actions of the men storming the cockpit, the plane failed to reach Washington, D.C. However, the plane crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania, about 150 miles (240 km) northwest of the hijackers’ target, killing all 40 passengers and crew members.

HEROES (continued): • More than 1,200 Jews and their 7,000 descendants owe their lives to a German industrialist named Oskar Schindler. Schindler was able to protect Jews during World War II by employing them in his enamelware and ammunitions factories in Poland and the Czech Republic. He gave large bribes and gifts to Nazi officials to prevent the Jews’ execution in Nazi concentration camps, and by the end of the war, he was bankrupt, having spent his entire sizeable fortune on bribes and supplies for his workers. After failing at several business ventures, he survived on donations from the “Schindlerjuden” (Schindler’s Jews), those he had saved, from all around the world. He died penniless in 1974. • Dale Beatty set out in his Humvee for a day of patrol across northern Iraq in 2004. His life was forever changed when the vehicle hit a land mine, sending the Humvee 50 feet (15.2 m) into the air. When Beatty woke up, his legs were pinned beneath the wreckage, an injury that necessitated amputation of both legs below the knee. After a year of recovery at Washington’s Walter Reed Hospital, Beatty hoped to build a handicappedaccessible home for his wife and two sons. His fellow church members, along with a fellow Iraq vet, John Gallina, helped him build the house on donated land. In 2008, the two vets founded Purple Heart Homes, a non -profit that helps provide homes for other disabled vets. Beatty and Gallina provide free renovations for the disabled, using donated labor and materials. The basis for the organization’s helping dozens of vets is Beatty’s statement, “We wouldn’t leave someone behind on the battlefield. Why would we do it at home?” Chuck Noffsinger 2801 Grand Central Ave Vienna

* Famously flamboyant country singer and songwriter Dolly Parton once entered a Dolly Parton look-alike contest -- and she lost. * If you're a sailor you're probably familiar with the hazards of being out on the water: high seas, storms, hidden reefs. You probably wouldn't count whales among the dangers, but you'd be wrong. In 2010, on a day sail out of Table Bay Harbor in South Africa, a couple on a 30-foot sailboat were whale-watching when one got too close for comfort. A 40-ton whale they had been viewing breached right next to the boat and landed on the deck, breaking off the mast and then thrashing around before sliding back into the water. The whale lost some skin and blubber, but was otherwise unharmed; the couple were lucky to still have a seaworthy craft and made it safely back to the harbor. Ê * Married women aren't likely to be surprised by the following tidbit of information: Studies show that women with husbands typically do 30 percent more housework than single women do. Ê * If you're heading to the state of Washington with mischief on your mind, you'll need to keep in mind this state law: "A motorist with criminal intentions [must] stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he [or she] is entering the town." I bet that one has been really effective in stopping crime. Ê * It's been reported that singer Sting doesn't use deodorant. In fact, after interviewing him for a concert once, the journalists nicknamed him "Stink." *** Thought for the Day: "It's far better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone." -- Marilyn Monroe (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

HEROES (continued):

• Mohandas Gandhi was renowned for his heroic methods of nonviolence in India’s fight for independence from British rule. A former lawyer, Gandhi organized India’s common population of peasants, farmers, and laborers to protest Britain’s excessive land taxes and discrimination, while advocating nonviolent civil disobedience, or “passive noncooperation,” in the quest for civil rights. His approach involved “refusing to use brute force against the oppressor” and “seeking to eliminate antagonisms between the oppressor and the oppressed.” For all of his peacemaking efforts, Gandhi was named “Man of the Year” by Time magazine in 1930. When the magazine selected its “Person of the Century” at the end of 1999, Gandhi was the runner-up to Albert Einstein. • Colonial silversmith and engraver Paul Revere is famous for his midnight ride that warned fellow colonists of the approaching British armies in 1775. Having already established an intelligence network that spied on the British military, Revere received word that the King’s troops were on their way to capture Patriot leaders and seize supplies. Revere’s system of lanterns placed in the steeple of Boston’s North Church – “one if by land, two if by sea” – signaled the militia of the landing. Although legend has it that Revere shouted, “The British are coming!” eyewitnesses say his actual words were, “The Regulars are coming out.” • Born in Macedonia in 1910, Anjeze Bonxhe Bojaxhiu devoted her life to helping the sick and poor in India. After taking her vows as a nun, Anjeze traveled to India to become a teacher. After 17 years of teaching, she stepped away from that calling after seeing the slums of Calcutta, where she established a hospice, a center for the blind, aged, and disabled, and a haven for lepers. Known as Mother Teresa, this selfless woman received the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize for her aid to what she called “the unwanted, the unloved, the uncared for.”

• It’s a little ironic that dentists first invented cotton candy, a confection whose only ingredient is sugar. A Nashville dentist named Dr. William Morrison teamed up with candy maker John Wharton in 1897 to invent a machine that melted sugar and spun it through tiny holes in a fine screen using centrifugal force to create sugar threads. After receiving their patent, the pair improved their packaging method and took the product they called fairy floss to the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, where they sold 68,000 boxes for 25 cents each. In today’s money, that’s around $6.75 a package. • Another gentleman named Thomas Patton patented a different type of cotton candy machine in 1900, one that caramelized sugar, forming the threads using a fork. A gas-fired rotating plate spun the sugar into threads. Patton marketed his candy at the Ringling Brothers Circus. • In 1921, a New Orleans dentist, Dr. Josef Lascaux, improved on the machine design as well as trademarking the name “cotton candy.” He first introduced his candy at his dental practice! • The process of making cotton candy begins with melting granular sugar into a liquid state. The sugar is funneled into an extruder, a rotating metal cylinder perforated with holes, along with a heating element. The spinning of the extruder propels the strands of melted sugar through the holes. When the sugar hits the air, it cools, and solid threads form. The threads are thinner than human hair.

Drink Up! June Is Dairy Month

--Whether it's in coffee, cereal, smoothies or dairy-based dressings, adding one more serving of milk to your family's day can help ensure they get the nutrients they need to build strong bones and teeth. Dairy farm families pride themselves on producing wholesome dairy foods that help their families grow up strong and healthy. There is no "moo-staking" the facts about dairy! June was officially declared "Dairy Month" in 1939. Originally, it was a way to distribute extra milk during the warm months of summer by grocer organizations. Dairy provides three of the four nutrients that are typically lacking in American diets: calcium, potassium and vitamin D. It's unique combination of nutrients plays key roles in preventing heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure,Êdiabetes and osteoporosis. Dairy also is important for building strong bones and teeth. When planning meals, choose milk, cheese and yogurt, all of which are excellent sources of calcium, vitamin D and potassium to help fuel your body. Cow's milk offers a superior nutrient package over alternative beverages such as soy, almond, rice or coconut. Despite rising fuel and feed costs, milk continues to be a great value at about 25 cents per 8ounce glass. Fat-free cow's milk contains 15 fewer calories per glass, 70 percent more potassium and almost twice as much protein as many calcium-fortified soy beverages. Most milkalternative drinks have only half the nutrients of real milk and cost nearly twice as much. Both organic and regular dairy foods contain the same essential nutrients that are key to a healthy and balanced diet. People who are sensitive to lactose can consume dairy foods that are lactose-reduced or lactose-free products.

Dairy farming is a family tradition, one that has been a way of life for many generations. Ninety-eight percent of dairy farms are family owned and operated. Dairy farmers are dedicated and take pride in caring for their cows by working closely with veterinarians to keep them healthy and comfortable. Dairy cows receive regular checkups, vaccinations and prompt medical treatment. Dairy farmers work hard to provide your family with the same safe and wholesome dairy foodsÊthey give to their children. People sometimes decrease milk products in their diet because they think it's fattening. Low-fat and fat-free milk products are the best choice for the fat- and calorie-conscious. An 8-ounce glass of whole milk has 150 calories and 8 grams of fat (4.5 grams saturated). If you choose an 8-ounce glass of fat-free milk, you'll consume 85 calories and less than 1 gram of fat. The weight conscious may want to think twice before decreasing dairy products in their diet. The National Dairy Council reported that a study showed that women who consumed the most calcium and ate at least three servings of dairy foods per day were less likely to be obese than those who had low dairy intake. There have been similar results in other studies with children and women of all ages. If you just drink milk at each meal, it isn't hard to get your three cups of milk every day. If milk isn't your favorite, add cheese to casseroles or your favorite sandwich, choose yogurt as a snack, create your own favorite smoothie or try this "dairy-licious" recipe for buttermilk blue-cheese dressing. Use it on everything as a dip, dressing or as a topping for my chicken pita pizza. Drink and eat more dairy -- your teeth and bones will thank you.

COTTON CANDY (continued): • We might call this confection cotton candy, but other countries use different terms. In New Zealand, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom it’s called candy floss. Australians still use the original term fairy floss, while the South Africans call it tooth floods. The French refer to it as Papa’s beard, while the Greeks use “old ladies’ hair” to describe the sweet treat. In the Netherlands, cotton candy is known as “sugar spider.” In China, candy makers blend peanuts and coconut into the sugar and call it “dragon’s beard candy.” The Himalayan nation of Bhutan spices it up a bit by adding chili pepper to the mix. • Even though the sole ingredient of cotton candy is sugar, there is a lot more sugar in a 12-oz. can of soda pop than in a cone of cotton candy. There is really more air in cotton candy than there is sugar. • Gold Medal Products debuted a more reliable machine in 1949. They went on to formulate the two most popular flavored colors – blue raspberry, which they call “Boo Blue,” and pink vanilla, trademarked as “Silly Nilly.” Cotton candy machines were greatly improved upon during the 1970s, and a modern machine today now has a rotating bowl that spins 3,450 times a minute. • The world’s largest cotton candy manufacturer is Tootsie Roll of Canada, Ltd., a company that bags a fruit-flavored variety they call Fluffy Stuff . • The idea of spun sugar has actually been around since the 1600s, when chefs decorated cakes and pastries with melted sugar whipped into strands with a fork.

Keeping Small Pets Safe From Coyotes ---

DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Yesterday we had a very scary incident in our backyard. I let our Llasa Apso, "Cherie," run free, knowing that she wouldn't wander into the woods as long as I was on the back porch, watching her. I was reading the newspaper when Cherie started barking. Looking up, I saw two coyotes at the edge of the woods, slowly approaching her. I ran toward them, waving my arms and yelling like a crazy person. The coyotes took one look at me and disappeared into the woods. I picked up Cherie and brought her inside. She wasn't hurt, but the situation could have quickly turned tragic if I hadn't looked up in time. For now, I'm keeping her indoors and only letting her out on a leash to relieve herself. Is there anything else I can do? -- Bob in Leominster, Massachusetts DEAR BOB: Keeping Cherie on a leash for the short term is a good idea, and I'm very glad you were supervising her backyard exploration. Contact the local animal control agency to report the coyotes' behavior. Long term, you may want to put up fencing -- at least 6 feet high and 1 foot below ground -- to deter the coyotes, as well as motion-activated lights. Make sure to keep trash securely covered and, if possible, indoors. Don't feed pets outside, because coyotes may investigate the food smell. Clear brush from your property and keep hedges trimmed. On the plus side, you may never see more than two full-grown coyotes in your area -- they are very territorial. If they become problematic, though, your municipality may need to step in and remove or eliminate the coyotes. Send your questions, comments and tips to (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.
