WHAT A CATCH! by Patricia L. Cook

Fishing is a favorite pastime of people all over the world. It also is a great way to feed your family. You’ve probably heard the proverb: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Let’s catch some fishy Tidbits! • Valentine’s Day 2011 was a big day for a fisherman from Vicksburg, Mississippi, who caught a 327-pound (148 kg), 8-foot, 5.25-inch (2.6 m) alligator gar while fishing at Chotard Lake. The huge fish, believed to be between 50 and 70 years old, was donated to the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science to be prepared for a future display. The alligator gar is quite terrifying with two rows of sharp teeth. • That gar was big but not as big as the largest catfish ever caught. It was as big as a grizzly bear! The Mekong giant catfish, caught in the Mekong River in Thailand in 2005, was 9 feet long (2.7 m) and weighed 646 pounds (237 kg). It died as fishermen struggled for about an hour to capture it and became a tasty meal for the local villagers.

WHAT A CATCH! (continued): • How would you like to see a school bus swimming in the waters near your boat? If you painted a whale shark yellow and put in some windows, that is about what you would see. Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the world. They can grow to more than 40 feet (12 m) in length and can weigh up to 30 tons (27 metric tons)! • Whale sharks swim in warm ocean waters mostly near the equator. However, they have been occasionally spotted as far north as the Maritime Provinces of Eastern Canada. Whale sharks swims with their mouths open. Those mouths can be up to 5 feet (1.5 m) wide — large enough to fit a small car inside! (Hmmm. Remember the Bible story of Jonah being swallowed by the big fish?) The world’s biggest fish actually prefers small food, mostly plankton, sardines and other small fish. Whale sharks have more than 3,000 teeth, smaller than fingernails. • Not as big as a whale shark, but to be feared more, is the bull shark. Bull sharks are very aggressive and can be found in freshwater as well as saltwater. They have been found in the Amazon and the Mississippi Rivers. They get their name from the fact that they head-butt their prey and have tough attitudes. • A fish that appears to have a grouchy attitude is the grouper. With its lower jar protruding in a nasty under-bite, this fish is not good looking but is very tasty. This relative of the sea bass is a healthy favorite with restaurants and home cooks. • The largest grouper on record caught with a rod and reel was pulled out of the water in Destin, Florida, on December 22, 1985. It weighed a whopping 436 pounds (198 kg)! • There are 162 species of grouper, with Red, Nassau and Black, being the most common in America. They have some really odd little “friends” that help them. Cleaner fish are tiny fish that swim inside a grouper’s mouth and eat the food that is trapped between the big fish’s teeth. Who needs a dentist?! • Grouper are bottom feeders, which means they typically swim and eat at the bottom of the water. Catfish are also bottom feeders. Some are even called “mudcats.” • The 36th Annual World Catfish Festival was held in Belzoni, Humphreys County, Mississippi, on April 2 this year. This family event celebrates the catfish farming industry that started in the area in the 1960s. Since that time, U.S. catfish farming has grown tremendously. There are 466 million pounds (211,374 metric tons) processed annually. Of the 95,200 acres (38,526 ha) in the United Continued on page 5

Is Your Cat Protected? FELINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS (FeLV) – Feline leukemia virus adversely affects the cat’s body in many ways.

About 95 percent of the farm-raised catfish in the United States is raised in the Southern states of Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and Louisiana. • Farm-raised catfish are not bottom feeders like wild catfish. They are raised in ponds of fresh water that are only 4 to 6 feet deep. The catfish are fed high protein feed pellets, made from soybean meal, corn and rice that float on top of the water. No. 1 in the South for many years, the popularity of catfish has spread across the country. With its consistent white meat and mild flavor, it is now the fifth most popular fish in America.

• Some really strange nicknames are given to another fish that is a favorite on dinner tables. “Whales,” Soakers” and “Barn Doors” are monikers for large halibut. • Halibut the size of one caught in 2003 in the Bering Sea, west of Anchorage, Alaska, definitely deserve any of those nicknames. The giant was 8 feet, 2 inches (2.4 m) long and weighed an estimated 533 pounds (242 kg). Five people struggled to pull it in! • Halibut has firm, flaky snow-white meat. The fillets are called “fletches.” One halibut has four fletches. The real delicacies coming from halibut though are the “cheeks.” They, obviously, come from the head. • Halibut are from a group of mostly saltwater, bottom-dwelling fish called flatfish. When these fish hatch, their eyes are normally on each side of the head. After they grow a bit, one eye moves closer to the other, and the mouth twists until the eyes and mouth are on top. The underside of a flatfish is white, but the top may be brightly colored. Many flatfish can change colors to match their surroundings, making for good camouflage. Some other flatfish are sole, turbot and the odd-looking flounder. • We’ve saved what has become one of the bestselling catches for last in this Tidbits. Salmon has been growing in popularity, with many health reports sending it to the top of the charts for human consumption. It is considered one of the healthiest fish to eat: high in omega-3 essential fatty acids and protein and low in calories and saturated fat. • Salmon is not only good for your heart and overall health, studies have also shown that it is great for your skin. Dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone has written several books explaining how a diet consisting of high amounts of salmon can lead to wrinkle-free skin. • Hopefully you have “caught” the message in this Tidbits: Fish are fun to catch and great for eating!

Scott McQueen Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors, however green is considered the classical tourmaline color, or should I say shades of green. Some are very light green, and others are so dark that the green color can only be seen when held against a bright light. The blue-green to dark green tourmalines are the most popular but also the most rare, perhaps because they are worn by both men and women. Don’t let the variety of names for tourmalines confuse you. A bottle-green tourmaline my be referred to as a “Brazilian tourmaline” but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the stone came from Brazil…it could have come from Africa. Tourmalines that are a lighter green are often referred to as “African Tourmalines” but it doesn’t necessarily mean they came from Africa…they might have come from Brazil. Totally confused? Me too. Let’s make it simple: If the origin of your tourmaline is important – ask a trustworthy gemologist. You’ll love a green tourmaline ring or necklace because the colors are harmonious with the environment and transmit a stunning vivacity. 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.

PHOTO: Nancy McKeon Q: I saw Nancy McKeon a while back on Disney ChanRyan Harris nelÕs ÒSonny With a President & Founder ChanceÓ playing Demi LovatoÕs mom, and I wondered what else she has been doing lately. -Sally T., via e-mail A: Nancy currently co-stars in the Hallmark Channel original movie ÒLove Begins,Ó which airs Sunday, Sept. 18. Nancy plays Millie, a local restaurant owner and the heart and soul of the town of AndersonÕs Corner. Nancy told me a main reason she took the role: her daughters. ÒThere are projects IÕve done that are just too grown-up for them to see. This was a chance for them to make fun of me in funny costumes and funny shoes and funny hair. They had a great time. Plus, I love the stories Hallmark tells, and this group of people were pretty terrific to work with.Ó *** Q: I love classic Westerns, especially ÒThe Rifleman.Ó Can you tell me if series stars Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford are still living, and if so, what they are doing? -- Rhonda H., Bountiful, Utah A: Chuck Connors passed away in 1992 at the age of 71 of pneumonia stemming from lung cancer. His 40-year career spanned sports (basketball and baseball), film and TV; however, he was best known as Lucas McCain of ÒThe Rifleman.Ó Johnny Crawford, 65, slowly stepped away from acting and headed toward music. He leads the Johnny Crawford Orchestra. See what heÕs been up to, and if heÕs coming to your area, at *** Q: As a history buff, I was excited to read in your column that the History Channel is making a miniseries about the Hatfields and McCoys, starring Kevin Costner as Anse Hatfield. Who will play Randall McCoy? -- Darnell R., via e-mail A: I, too, am eager for this miniseries, which is slated to air next year. I’m happy to report that Bill Paxton -- of ÒBig Love,Ó ÒApollo 13Ó and ÒTwisterÓ fame -- is set to play Randall McCoy, the famed arch nemesis of ÒDevilÓ Anse Hatfield. *** Q: I’m excited that my favorite show, Ò90210,Ó is coming back to the CW soon. Can you give me any teasers for this season? -- Heidi R., Washington, D.C. A: Ò90210Ó returns for its fourth season on Tuesday, Sept. 13. I spoke with Michael Steger, who plays Navid Shirazi, and he gave me the scoop (but not enough to get him in trouble). ÒNavidÕs going to be working with Dixon, but DixonÕs no longer working FOR Navid. Max and Naomi and the whole pregnancy bomb at the finale, they address that in the first episode. Also, NavidÕs family flies to Switzerland to be with his father, but his sister doesnÕt get on the plane. Navid does see Adrianna again, and itÕs a very awkward situation, but they do talk in the first two episodes. Also, weÕre doing a lot more location stuff. IÕm excited because thereÕs a lot more action going on.Ó Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475; or email her at

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver ÂĽ It was revered American comedian Bill Cosby who made the following sage observation: Ă’Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home.Ă“ ÂĽ HereĂ•s a disturbing statistic for parents: If your child is like the average American youth, between the ages of 5 and 15 he or she will see approximately 13,500 people killed on television. ÂĽ Most languages change dramatically over time. If we in modern America were to try to read “Beowulfâ€? (which was written in Old English), for instance, only those who have spent time studying the language would be able to make out more than a word or two here and there. If youĂ•re from Iceland, however, this isnĂ•t the case; the written language there has remained virtually unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Modern Icelanders have no trouble reading sagas that were written in the 10th century. ÂĽ Relative to body size, humans -- unsurprisingly -have larger brains than any other animal. Of non-human animals, itĂ•s the bottlenose dolphin that has the largest brain. ÂĽ When Great BritainĂ•s current Queen Elizabeth -then Princess Elizabeth -- wed Prince Philip, their wedding cake weighed a whopping 500 pounds. ĂŠ ÂĽ As legend has it, in 1288, when Dusseldorf, Germany, was granted its city charter, children all over the city began turning cartwheels for joy. The cartwheel has been an enduring part of the culture there ever since, and in 1937 the city even inaugurated an annual international cartwheel championship. ÂĽ Those who study such things claim that when youĂ•re playing Monopoly, youĂ•re likely to land on Illinois Avenue and the B&O Railroad more than on any other squares. *** Thought for the Day: Ă’I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I donĂ•t.Ă“ -- W. Somerset Maugham (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

For that to happen, you’ll need to take these steps: Know your investment objectives. Whether you work in an office, a manufacturing plant or any other venue, your goal is to produce a clearly identifiable result. And the same should be true for the way that you invest. In other words, you should know exactly why you own every single one of your investments — because only then will you have a clear, unified strategy for achieving your desired outcomes. Keep investing. As a diligent worker, you show up to work every day because you know that this type of consistency is necessary for success. A similar principle applies to your investing “career.” By investing steadily, year in and year out, you have a much better chance of reaching your objectives than if you were to take periodic breaks. Of course, when the financial markets are volatile, it can be tempting to take a “timeout,” but this stop-and-start approach can lead to missed opportunities. For example, if you jump out of the market when it’s down, you might miss out on the early stages of the next rally. Build a productive portfolio. Generally speaking, the most industrious workers are also the most productive ones. And just as productivity is an asset in the working world, it’s important in the investment world, too. Strive to own a mix of investments in a balanced portfolio, based on your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals. Develop your investment skills. To truly be a good worker, you need a set of skills, such as initiative, the ability to make decisions and the willingness to work on a team. However, throughout the course of your career, you may also need to add new technical proficiencies so that you can stay on top of developments in your field and maintain your productivity. As an investor, you also need some “core competencies,” such as patience, discipline and the ability to prioritize goals. But you also need to stay current on financial products, the economy, the markets and changes in tax- and investment-related laws. To help expand your knowledge base and receive timely guidance, you may want to work with a financial professional. Labor Day comes just once a year. But by keeping your investments working hard 365 days a year, you can keep making progress toward the lifestyle you’ve envisioned.

NO DOGMA; just God! 10431 Park Glenn Way - Parker Matthew 8:1-2 (NLT) Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. 2 Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” Right here is where millions of Christians find themselves today in regards to healing. They believe that God can heal their body, they believe He has the power and the ability to heal them. But just like this leper here, they are not convinced that it is His will to heal them. Do you see the difference? God, I know you can but is it your will for me? Well fortunately, you only need one verse further to have that question answered for your life. How did Jesus respond to this question? Matthew 8:3 (NLT)Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. There you have it, Jesus said I am willing. Well if he was willing then, he must be willing now because the Bible tells us that God does not change. It also tells us that God is not a respecter of persons. What that means if he healed the leper, he will heal you, if not he has changed and we know that cannot be! “I am willing”, he said. “Be healed!” This is exciting news for everyone who has ever asked the question, is it God’s will for me to be healed, for me to be whole. It is God’s will for His children to be healed. Jesus said, if you have seen me, you have seen the Father, He also said, I only do those things which I see my Father doing. In other words, ever thing that Jesus said, everything that Jesus did, was and is the revealed will of God, for all men, for all ages! And that includes healing for your body. For several weeks now I have been teaching a series in our church on this particular subject and we have seen several people healed simply as they have heard the Word preached and faith rose up in their hearts and they received their healing. Are you in need of healing? Have you gotten a bad report from the doctor’s that says they can’t help you? Do you know someone, a friend, a family member who needs healing in their body? Then let me invite you to come to our next service, Sunday Feb. 20th at 10:30. We will have a very special guest, healing evangelist Glen Brown, of Glen Brown Miracle Ministries. He has been called by God to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit bringing miracles, signs, and wonders, to a lost and dying world and to proclaim the love of God in people’s lives. Come and experience the power and the manifestation of God’s presence as we worship and proclaim His Name. Well but Pastor Chris, what if I bring someone and they don’t get healed? What if you bring them and they do get healed!

¥ On Sept. 12, 1940, a collection of 600 prehistoric cave paintings and 1,500 engravings are discovered in a grotto near Montignac, France. The 5,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings consisted mostly of animal representations. The Lascaux grotto’s main cavern is 66 feet wide and 16 feet high.

¥ On Sept. 14, 1964, writer John Steinbeck is presented the U.S. Medal of Freedom. Steinbeck had already received numerous honors and awards for his writing, including the 1962 Nobel Prize, and the 1939 Pulitzer Prize for “The Grapes of Wrath.” He also wrote “Tortilla Flat,” “East of Eden” and the novella “Of Mice and Men.” ¥ On Sept. 18, 1987, cesium-137 is removed from an abandoned cancer-therapy machine in Brazil. Junkyard workers, fascinated by the glowing blue stone inside and completely unaware of its dangers, distributed pieces to friends, relatives and neighbors. Hundreds of people were eventually poisoned by radiation from the substance, and 40 contaminated homes had to be demolished.

303-841-2410 FREE DELIVERY A young boy who had just gotten his driving permit asked his father if he could use the family car. The father said he could use the car if he studied his Bible diligently -- and got his hair cut. For a week the boy studied his Bible, but didn't get his hair cut. "I'm glad to see you studying your Bible," the father said, "but why didn't you get your hair cut?" "Well, Dad," the boy replied, "Samson had long hair. Moses had long hair. Noah had long hair. And even Jesus had long hair." "Indeed they did," the father answered, "and I'm glad you want to use them as your role models . . . . because they walked everywhere they went." If we meet and you forget me(Don Dixon), you have lost nothing; But if you meet JESUS CHRIST and forget Him, You have lost everything.
