• Earl Tupper founded his company in 1938, promoting his new line of polyethylene containers with airtight seals named, appropriately, Tupperware. The items were initially sold in department stores, but in the early 1950s, the marketing strategy was changed to the familiar Tupperware “party.” Tupper didn’t just make bowls and cups; he also had a contract to make gas mask parts during World War II. He sold his plastics company in 1958 for $16 million.

• We all take our polio vaccinations for granted, but they weren’t administered for the first time until 1954, in the city of Pittsburgh, where Dr. Jonas Salk had been conducting his experiments. A 1952 polio epidemic that killed 3,300 and paralyzed thousands inspired Dr. Salk to develop a vaccine. turn the page for more!

CONVENIENCES (continued): • Chester Carlson spent a good part of his life perfecting the copy machine, receiving a patent in 1937. However, the world didn’t share his vision of one-touch copying, and 20 companies, including IBM, rejected his presentation before it was finally marketed for the first time in 1959 under the name “Xerox 914.” By 1968, Fortune magazine ranked Carlson among the richest people in America. • The 1950s brought all kinds of innovations to the modern home. Velcro, power steering, pocket transistor radios and Legos all hit the scene during this decade. The world’s first credit card, the Diners Club card, was introduced in 1950. Issued in New York City, it offered credit at 27 restaurants. The American Express card came along eight years later. • When your eyes begin to age, you’ll be thankful for one of Benjamin Franklin’s innovations. Our founding father invented bifocal eyeglasses at the age of 79. • Travelers have had the convenience of pulling into a Holiday Inn along the road since the chain opened its first hotel in 1952 in Memphis, Tennessee. • Masking tape was developed by the 3M Company, a sandpaper-making firm, in 1925. One of the company’s young engineers, Richard Drew, was testing sandpaper at an automobile plant and noticed that painters were having difficulty painting the newly popular two-tone cars. Drew went back to 3M and immediately began work on a product to solve the painters’ dilemma. Waterproof transparent “Scotch” tape came along five years later, also the creation of Richard Drew. A 3M co-worker of Drew’s invented the tape dispenser with a built-in cutter blade in 1932. • Thanks to a Chicago inventor, Whitcomb Judson, you can zip up your pants! While experimenting in 1891 with a gadget that would make it easier to button and unbutton shoes, dubbed the “Clasp Locker and Unlocker for Shoes,” Judson came up with the zipper.

And how about another item you’d think has been around forever, the ballpoint pen? It came out the same year as that fax machine. Nine years later, Bic introduced their now-famous brand of ballpoint pen.

Dr. James Olson - The Meow Doc

Special Senior Cats – Making a Difference One on One

(Part 3 of 4: Vinnie; Billie; Roxie and Columbine) Senior cats are special companions for senior owners. Roxie was a cat that had the luck to be under the care of a loving group of shelter workers at Happy Cats Haven in Colorado Springs. Roxie had become expendable in her current family with a new baby on the way, four dogs terrorizing her and now a major medical problem – hyperthyroidism. The director, Melissa Shandley, contacted Dr. Jim Olson about the possibility of having Roxie treated for hyperthyroidism. Cat Specialist has an unwritten policy of trying to help special needs cats. Roxie was treated for hyperthyroidism with radio-iodine and has been doing extremely well.

With Roxie’s health concerns taken care of, finding her a new home was a top priority. Happy Cat Haven shelter and Cat Specialist set about finding a great home for Roxie. The staff at Cat Specialist created picture signs for around the hospital and a list of clients were called that had shown interest in adopting a new cat. We were unable to find people who would adopt her in our area but Happy Cat Haven shelter found a perfect match in Colorado Springs. A follow-up picture of Roxie showed her sitting on a grand piano. Roxie has found a new home and people to train!

The cat's-eye chrysoberyl reminds many of the eye of a panther with its distinct band of light that crosses its face from top to bottom or side to side. This mysterious looking gemstone is a cousin of the color-changing alexandrite. Chrysoberyl colors range from a honey brown to an apple green with the rich gold colors deemed the most valuable. The principal value factor is the strength and sharpness of the eye. Fine cat’s-eye chrysoberyl often shows a “milk and honey” effect. When a bright light is directed at the side of the stone, one side of the eye will be milky white while the other will glow a honey gold. If you rotate the stone, the colors switch. Perhaps the changing aspect of this stone is why men love cat’s-eye chrysoberyl in their jewelry. And then there’s the myth that a cat’s eye can point fortune in the direction of the one wearing it – just another reason to own this enigmatic gemstone. If you want to find a cat’s-eye for yourself you’ll have to travel to Sri Lanka, Brazil or China and while you’re hunting, don’t confuse the real chrysoberyl cat’s eye with quartz cat’s eyes. Or just drop in to Pinetree Jewelers and we’ll help you find the perfect cat’s eye for you. Scott McQueen is the owner of Pinetree Jewelers, Parker’s oldest jewelry store established in 1976. It is located at 11028 S. Pikes Peak Drive in Parker. For more information on gemstones or jewelry of any kind call 303.841.2666

THIS IS A HAMMER By Samantha Mazzotta Cleaning a Rusty Grill Q: I left my propane grill out on the back deck over the winter. We didn’t get much snow or rain, and actually used it from time to time, so I didn’t cover it. Now I notice some rust on the underside of the grill.

A: You can buy a cleaner that removes rust stains at your local hardware or home-improvement store, or if the rust is mostly surface-based, try wiping the area first with a damp cloth. If not all the rust is removed, try scrubbing the area with a steel-wire brush or steel wool. If the interior of the grill or the grates are rusty or caked with old charcoal and burnt-on food, use the same cleaning methods to scrub them off. Then, clean the interior well (for readers who use charcoal grills, remove the old ashes and charcoal and then clean). Once clean, you’ll want to seal the rust-damaged areas. On the outside of your grill, a high-temperature paint will keep air and moisture away from the metal and won’t flake away quickly. The interior should be cleaned between each grilling session and closed to prevent rain from entering. Grill racks should be washed after cleaning and each use, and a thin coat of cooking oil sprayed or rubbed on them so they stay rustfree between uses. If you’re not going to use the grill for a long time, say several weeks, regardless of the season it should be cleaned, covered with a grill cover and moved out of direct rain and sunlight. Some owners coat the exterior of the grill with a thin coat of cooking oil if they plan to store it for some time. HOME TIP: Got a tough cleanup of grill racks? Make a foamy vinegar-baking soda paste and apply to the racks, let them sit for a few minutes, then scrub away burnt-on food and grease.

The motion picture camera and projector, incandescent light bulbs and the phonograph are well-known Edison inventions, with lesser-known innovations being the stock ticker, dictating machine and electric pen. • What would your life be like without computers? Although many would claim the honor of inventing the world’s first computer, a 1973 American court decision officially awarded this achievement to Dr. John V. Atanasoff, a physics professor at Iowa State University. Although Dr. Atanasoff had devised his digital computer with a memory drum back in 1939, he was not credited as the “father of American computing” until after years of patent litigation. President George Bush conferred the National Medal of Science and Technology to him in 1990. • The next time you strike a match, consider the fact that this little convenience has been around since 1816, when a Frenchman developed a friction match with a phosphorus tip, providing a simple means of access to fire. • Do you run faster in your Nikes?

• Listerine wasn’t named after its inventor, Dr. Joseph Lawrence, but rather after the acclaimed British surgeon, Dr. Joseph Lister, a pioneer in establishing sanitary operating room procedures. When Lawrence originated the formula in 1879 in his St. Louis laboratory, he intended the concoction to be used strictly in the medical profession as a surgical antiseptic. It wasn’t offered to the public until 1914 when it was marketed as the first over-the-counter mouthwash. • What would sports fans do without instant replays? There was no such thing until 1963, when this was introduced in that year’s Army vs. Navy football game. Fans became so confused, TV stations were flooded with telephone calls. • Housewives across the country were thrilled when the Hurley Machine Company of Chicago launched The Thor, the first electric-powered washing machine, in 1908. It was a drum-like machine with a galvanized tub and electric motor. Due to the efforts of Lillian Gilbreth, we have shelves and butter and egg trays inside refrigerator doors, an electric food mixer, an improved electric can opener and a trash can with a foot pedal lid opener. The mother of 12 children, this industrial engineer was immortalized in the book “Cheaper by the Dozen.”

you may need to broaden your search. Here are a few ideas to consider:

Build a bond ladder. Long-term bonds, by their nature, are more subject to interest rate risk than shorter-term vehicles. In other words, interest rates are more likely to rise during the life span of a longer-term bond — and when rates go up, the prices of existing bonds will fall. To help lower this risk, you may want to build a “ladder” of bonds of varying maturities. Then, if market interest rates are low, you’ll still have your long-term bonds earning higher rates, but if rates rise, you can take advantage of them by reinvesting the proceeds of your maturing short-term bonds. But remember to work with your financial advisor to evaluate whether a bond ladder and the securities held within it are consistent with your Weight Management. investment objectives, risk tolerance and financial circumstances.

Cyberbullying can take the form of spreading rumors or gossip, posting or sending pictures without consent, assuming someone else’s identity, or using threatening or offensive language. Instead of having to face only one kid, cyberbullying can involve an entire group of kids tormenting another. Kids can get a break from traditional bullying just by going home, but cyberbullying can take place anytime, anywhere. Victims often feel there is no reprieve. Signs a child is being cyberbullied include: • • • • •

Avoids using technology (HUGE red flag) Appears nervous when a text message or email arrives Clears the computer screen or deletes texts whenever you enter the room Withdraws from family and friends Loss of appetite, trouble sleeping, crying or sullenness

Victims of cyberbullying often keep it a secret because they fear their online privileges will be revoked or they’ll be reprimanded. The best way to stop cyberbullying is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Teach your kids to delete suspicious messages without opening them, and to delete cruel or hurtful messages as well. Teach them how to block unwanted contact. And remind them that YOU are their safe haven, no matter what. To learn more, visit www.cyberbulling.us or www. wiredsafety.com.

Mountain Canyon Developement “Excavating is our specialty”

¥ On May 10, 1869, the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads meet up in Promontory, Utah, making transcontinental railroad travel possible for the first time in U.S. history. Journeys that had taken months by wagon train or weeks by boat now took only days. ¥ On May 7, 1915, the British ocean liner Lusitania is torpedoed without warning by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland, with 1,198 people drowned. It was later revealed that the Lusitania was carrying about 173 tons of war munitions for Britain, which the Germans cited as justification for the attack. ¥ On May 12, 1925, a Philadelphia radio station broadcasts the first all-star radio program featuring film actors and actresses. Sound films had not yet debuted, and the broadcast marked the first time that most listeners had heard the voices of film stars like Lillian Gish and Marion Davies. ¥ On May 8, 1933, the first police radio system, connecting headquarters to patrol cars and patrol cars to one another, is installed in Eastchester Township, N.Y. The system consisted of one transmitter of 20 watts for the headquarters and two transmitters of 4.5 volts each for the two patrol cars. ¥ On May 13, 1956, Gene Autry’s musical variety show, “Gene Autry’s Melody Ranch,” airs its final broadcast, after 16 years. The show featured 10- to 15-minute skits about cowboys and rustlers, along with musical numbers by Autry, “America’s singing cowboy.” ¥ On May 9, 1960, the Food and Drug Administration approves the world’s first commercially produced birth-control bill. Development of “the pill” was commissioned by birth-control pioneer Margaret Sanger and funded by heiress Katherine McCormick. ¥ On May 11, 1981, reggae legend Bob Marley dies of cancer in Miami Beach, Fla. Marley, born in Jamaica in 1945, formed his band, the Wailers, in 1963. In the early 1970s, the band’s records began to catch on outside Jamaica, assisted by Eric Clapton’s cover of “I Shot the Sheriff.” (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

It’s All About Service & Horsepower, Pal! Murphy goes to Church Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday, and the priest almost fell down when he saw him. He'd never been to church in his life. After Mass, the priest caught up with him and said, "Murphy, I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What made ya come?" Murphy said, "I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced me hat and I really, really love that hat. I know that McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday . I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass & figured he would leave it in the back of church. So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn's hat." The priest said, "Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn't steal McGlynn's hat. What changed your mind?" Murphy replied, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments I decided that I didn't need to steal McGlynn's hat after all." With a tear in his eye the priest gave Murphy a big smile and said;"After I talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' ya decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in hell, eh ?" Murphy slowly shook his head. "No, Father, after ya talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery ' I remembered where I left me hat.

She asked, ‘What’s on TV?’ I said, ‘Dust.’ And then the fight started... ***************************************** Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day. I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife’s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.” My loving wife of 10 years replied, “Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?” And that’s how the fight started... ***************************************** My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
