Kathio Historic District Mille Lacs The Kathio Historic District preserves habitation sites and mound groups, believed to date between 3000 BC and 1750 AD, that document Sioux Indian culture and Ojibwe-Sioux relationships. The park contains 19 identified archaeological sites, making it one of the most significant archaeological collections in Minnesota. The earliest site dates to the Archaic period and shows evidence of copper tool manufacture. Kelley Farm Elk River A historic farmstead once owned by Oliver Hudson Kelley. Kelley moved to Minnesota in 1849, the year that the Minnesota Territory was formed. Although he knew little about farming, he taught himself using agricultural journals and corresponded with other "scientificoriented" farmers. He became an expert on farming in Minnesota and learned how adverse events such as bad weather, debt, insect pests, and crop failures could devastate a farmer's fortune.

Legal Bits FIGHTING OVER CHILD CUSTODY Everyone knows that child custody disputes are often the most costly and contentious issues in divorces. Why? Because the standard for who gets custody is a subjective one. The standard for establishing custody is “the best interests of the child.” This means that a variety of factors can determine custody such as who is closer to the child, who can provide a stable living environment, the mental health of each parent, etc. So, even though Minnesota Courts grant the divorce without regard to who is at fault, parents may still try to prove that the other is a bad parent to establish custody. It is almost always best for the parents to work together and agree on reasonable custody arrangements. There are scenarios though where agreement is simply impossible. Common examples are in abusive relationships or in substance abuse situations. Moreover, it only takes one irrational parent to result in a dispute. In those cases, emotions can get the best of anyone, and you can often make matters worse for yourself. Some pitfalls are the emotional outbursts, retaliation or alienating the kids from the other parent. If you are involved in a custody dispute, the guidance and help you get from a good, experienced and level-headed lawyer can be invaluable. Questions or Concerns?

YO, DUDE! (CONTINUED) • When you open a carton of yogurt, do you know what you’re eating? It’s a mixture of milk and cream that has been fermented with live bacteria at a warm temperature. Because your body needs to have a certain amount of “good” bacteria in the digestive tract, lactic acid-producing bacteria such as acidophilus are added to the mix. Nomadic Bedouins process camel’s milk into drinkable yogurt, and often live on nothing else for six months. Although yogurt has probably been around for about 8,000 years, the well-known Yoplait has only been existence for 49 of those.

It occurs on the tenth day of the Jewish month of Tishri, which in 2013 will be September 14. Yom Kippur is a day of fasting, and traditions include no eating or drinking, no bathing, and no wearing of leather shoes. It is also customary to wear white on this day as a symbol of purity, representing the promise that “our sins shall be made as white as snow.” Back in 1965, Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax made the news when he decided not to pitch the first game of the World Series because that day fell on Yom Kippur. • Renowned cellist Yo Yo Ma was born in Paris to Chinese parents.

â–˛ “For a small splinter that is buried, try this trick before you go digging around with tweezers or a sterilized needle. Lay a piece of banana peel pulp-side down over the splinter and cover it with a bandage. Leave it on overnight if possible. It has something to do with the enzymes in the peel as it ripens, but it will help draw out the splinter. The peel needs to be nice and ripe, and it might take a couple of tries.â€? -- D.M.

THE FICTIONAL MAJOR MARTIN • In World War II, the Allied forces decided to start re-taking Europe by wresting the island of Sicily out of the hands of the Axis. British Naval Intelligence concluded that enemy forces needed to be misled into believing the Allies were planning on storming the nearby island of Sardinia. Axis troops would be massed there, leaving Sicily unprotected. The question was how to fool the Germans. Thus was born one of the more unusual plots of World War II. The plan was to find a corpse, outfit it with fake ID, plant important documents on it that divulged the "secret" plans to invade Sardinia, then put it where the Germans would find it. • Allied operatives in charge of the project secured the body of a soldier who had died of pneumonia. They made up fake ID papers which named him as Major William Martin. Two letters from Major Martin's "girlfriend" named Pam were handwritten and placed in his pocket, along with a snapshot of a woman. In the letter she talked about their upcoming wedding, and they placed a bill from a jewelry store for an engagement ring in the billfold. A bill for an overnight stay at the Naval and Military Club was included, dated the day before the Major was to meet his unfortunate "death." His pockets were filled with coins, keys, a pencil, cigarettes, matches, and theater ticket stubs. A watch was placed on one wrist. An ID tag was placed on a chain around his neck. A wallet in his back pocket contained two pictures of "Pam," a book of stamps with two missing, and some money. Then they attached a briefcase to his body with a chain of the same type bank messengers use when carrying valuables. This would prevent the briefcase from floating away from the body, as well as alerting the Germans to the importance of the corpse. Continued next page • Fake letters from high ranking officers were placed in the briefcase. The letters discussed how it could be possible to make the Germans believe the next attack would be on Sicily, leaving Sardinia unprotected. • Next they had to get the body to the Germans, by making it appear as if his plane crash-landed into the sea. They knew that a German secret agent was stationed at Huelva, Spain. So they commissioned a submarine to carry the body to the coast of Huelva and release it. The body was packed in dry ice to prevent decomposition on the submarine. Major Martin was wrapped in a life jacket before being released to be sure

the body would float. The plan kicked into action. • A Spanish fisherman found the body. Military officers were summoned. A Naval officer took the briefcase and all personal documents. A doctor, finding fluid in the lungs (due to pneumonia) announced that the death had been due to drowning. The body was turned over to British diplomats, and they arranged a military funeral. "Pam" sent flowers for the grave. The British asked that Major Martin's briefcase be returned, and eventually it was. But examination showed that all the "secret" documents had been removed and then replaced. • German officials forwarded copies of the documents all the way up to Hitler. German troops went to reinforce Sardinia. Submarines moved out of Sicilian waters. • On July 10, 1943, the Allies invaded Sicily incurring only slight losses. Even after the invasion started, the Germans were convinced it was not a legitimate attack but merely a diversionary tactic. Allies liberated Sicily in only 39 days and used it as a springboard for the invasion of Italy. Major Martin served his country well.


EMILY POST When you think of correct manners, proper etiquette, and good taste, the name of Emily Post has to come to mind. Here is the history of this noted expert on appropriate behavior for any occasion. • Emily Post was born to a life of privilege in 1872, the daughter of a wealthy architect. She was educated by governesses and later attended New York City’s prestigious Miss Graham’s finishing school, where she was trained in all matters of ladylike conduct. As a young debutante, she met her future husband Edwin Main Post at an elegant ball in a posh Fifth Avenue mansion. Emily married the prominent banker when she was 20, and embarked on a lavish honeymoon tour throughout Europe. • Emily gave birth to her first son a year after her marriage, and to another in 1895. Her husband’s infidelity a few years later led to a scandal and the couple divorced in 1905. Emily requested no alimony from Edwin, as he had recently lost nearly everything in a stock market crash. Instead she turned to writing to support herself and her sons. • Emily started out writing romantic short stories that were published in popular fiction magazines of the day, as well as articles on architecture and interior design. She moved on to novels and had published five by the

year 1910. A publishing company editor urged her to write a book on etiquette, and in 1922, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home – The Blue Book of Social Usage was released and almost immediately became a best seller. In the years to come, ten editions of the book were published. • Starting in 1931, Emily hosted a radio program, as well as producing a daily newspaper column, which was syndicated in 200 newspapers across the country. Along the way she continued to author new books, including The Personality of a House, Children Are People, Motor Manners, and The Emily Post Cook Book. • Emily’s approach to good manners was that of bringing common sense to behavior. Her root belief was that manners included “good form in speech, knowledge of proper social graces, and charm.” She especially disliked pretentious people, dirty silverware, and hostesses who served themselves first. Although she authored an

advice column, she consistently avoided giving “lonely hearts” advice. She did hold fast to her advice whenever a single girl asked if it was correct to visit a man alone in his apartment – the answer was “No.”. • In 1946, Emily founded the Emily Post Institute, an organization designed to offer expert etiquette advice to corporations, which continues to promote standards of good manners and civility around the world. Emily’s third and fourth generation descendants still write books and columns, and conduct seminars and workshops based on the principles of honesty, respect, and consideration. • In Emily’s words, manners are “a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” • “A gentleman does not boast about his junk.” – Emily Post

MARINE CORPS EXERCISE REGIMEN FOR PEOPLE OVER 60 Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room on each side. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides. Hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then eventually, try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.) After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

The Reluctant Psychic

If you feel it’s time to have a psychic reading, but you don’t really have the time or want to make the drive to see your psychic, consider having a phone reading. Phone readings are no more difficult to do than an in-person reading. Your psychic will open up the same way he or she does if you’re sitting across from them and the information will come in the same way. Most psychics don’t need to be in the same room with you or need to touch you. They just have to open up and be the channel for information to flow from your guide to you, or in the case of a Medium, from your loved ones who have crossed over. I’ve had people who were very surprised that I could do a reading on someone in another state, and they almost couldn’t believe that I could read someone in a different country. The paranormal world doesn’t have the same boundaries that we do. Space and distance are no barrier to information getting through. Before you begin your reading, be sure to make a list of items to ask about. It’s also important to relax. If you are tense or nervous it could make it difficult to have a good experience. When we are tense or nervous we automatically put up protective walls. It’s how we keep ourselves from getting hurt U if ! fmvdubou! tzdijd emotionally. Just like in real life though, with a wall, you have to find a way to get in, even if you have to go over it, and that can take some time for the person attempting to read you. Take time before-hand to ♦ Psychic settle your mind and physical body so that you are open to the psychic “reading”. ♦ Medium Psychics have a reputation of “fishing” for information. If you experience this, what could be happening is that the psychic is ♦ Healer attempting to get through your wall by asking you general questions ♦ Classes about yourself. When we begin to talk about ourselves we tend to relax. If you are relaxed before your reading, everything should move along easily. Thank you for your interest and attention. If you’d like to have 763-576-5134 a reading, please contact me. Till next time, stay in touch with yourself, with your life, and with those loved ones who have moved on. ROBINALLEN.NET

“The nice thing about being a celebrity is that if you bore people they think it’s their fault.� -- Henry Kissinger

� You probably knew that cats were revered in ancient Egypt, but did you know that when a domestic cat died, the family went into mourning? Yep. People would shave their eyebrows to demonstrate their grief over the passing of their beloved pet. ****************** Thoughts for the Day: “Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so.� -- Bertrand Russell

â—? President Franklin Delano Roosevelt added both a swimming pool and a movie theater to the White House.

â—? When Hernan Cortes reached the New World in the 1600s, he found the Aztecs drinking hot chocolate at their banquets.

� You probably are aware that the names that foreign places are known by in the English language are not always the same as the names of those places in the local tongue. The capital of Russia is called Moskva in that country, and to Italians it’s not Venice, but Venezia. Not all names sound so similar, though; if you didn’t know the language, it would be nearly impossible to figure out that Ellinki Dimokratia is what Greeks call their country, and that Konungariket Sverige is Sweden to the Swedish. South Korea is known locally as Han Kook, China is Zhonghua Renmin Gonghe Guo, and Finland is Suomen Tasavalta.

â—? According to some Native American tribes, all you have to do to make a wish come true is to catch a butterfly, whisper your wish to it and set it free.

� It was Albert Einstein who made the following sage observation: “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.�

â—? Those who study such things say that an ordinary human being can live four weeks without food, four days without water and four minutes without air.

â—? A recent national survey of adult children with living parents found that a whopping 70 percent of respondents are against the idea of a parent moving in with them. If it became necessary for one parent to move in, though, two-thirds would choose Mom over Dad.

� If you’re planning to visit the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you might want to trek up to Mount Waialeale. If you do, though, be sure to take an umbrella, as that mountain holds the distinction of receiving more rainfall than any other place on Earth, with an average of about 40 feet -- yes, feet -- of rain annually.

This week, Tidbits is not only saying “Hey!â€? – we’re examining all sorts of words that begin with the letters yo-, everything from Yogi Bear to yodeling! • You’ve probably never heard the term vitellus, but it’s the proper name given to an egg yolk! The yolk, which contains all of the egg’s fat and cholesterol, accounts for about one-third of the liquid weight of an egg and contains approximately 60 calories. The egg yolk might have a bad reputation for its cholesterol content, but don’t overlook the 18 amino acids, vitamins A, D, E, and K, and minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium that are all essential for various body processes. • Can you yodel? If you’re able to make quick fluctuations between your normal chest singing voice and a falsetto, you can! The well-known “Yodel-Ay-EEE-oooâ€? features the “EEEâ€? sung in the head voice, with the other tones sung in the chest voice. It’s believed that yodeling got its start as a method of communication between shepherds and their stock in the Swiss Alps. The technique was made popular again in recent years with a song featured in Disney’s 1994 The Lion King called “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.â€? Also known as “Wimoweh,â€? it was first recorded in 1939, then again in 1961.
