Legal Bits Why Do I Need a Will? Death is a hard thing to talk about for most people. That is why people often never get around to making a will. But do you really need one? When you die, if you have assets and/ or minor children, someone has to gather up your assets, figure out what to do with them and figure out how to take care of your minor children. If you die without a valid will, the courts choose someone to assemble your assets and/or take care of your minor children with no regard to your wishes. With a written will, you have the power to direct who should be in charge of taking care of your estate, what should happen to your minor children and how your assets should be distributed. So basically, if you want to have a say in how your estate and/or minor children are handled in the event you die, you should have a will. Concerns? Call us for a complimentary assessment.

For the second consecutive year and fifth time in six years, Minneapolis residents led the nation in participation in National Night Out activities, which help build community and keep our neighborhoods safe. Minneapolis placed first in the nation for the number of National Night Out gatherings held in the city, among cities with populations greater than 300,000, according to the National Association of Town Watch, which sponsors the annual awards. Overall, this is the 11th time that Minneapolis has earned the top ranking.

National Association of Town Watch (NATW) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of various crime prevention programs including neighborhood watch groups, law enforcement agencies, state and regional crime prevention associations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals, devoted to safer communities. The nations premiere crime prevention network works with law enforcement officials and civilian leaders to keep crime watch volunteers informed, interested, involved and motivated. Since 1981, NATW continues to serve thousands of members across the nation. The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, policecommunity partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August (In Texas, the first Tuesday of October). NATW’s Executive Director, Matt Peskin, introduced National Night Out in 1984. The first National Night Out took place on Tuesday, August 7th 1984. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states. The seed had been planted

National Night Out now involves over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including, but not limited to, block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from emergency personnel, rallies and marches, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations. Peskin said, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.” National Night Out is only one night, what about the other 364 days in a year? Designate a particular problem in your registered community and work towards a solution to issues such as drugs, gangs, violence, or graffiti within an estimated 365 days between your annual National Night Out events, in effort to create a safer neighborhood.

• In 496 B.C.E. there was a terrible drought in Rome. The priests thought if they adopted a new goddess, perhaps she would help. So they started worshipping Ceres. She became the protector of crops, and the caretakers of her temple became grain dealers, since she was responsible for the growth of grain. A new Latin word was coined meaning “of Ceresâ€?: cerealis. That’s where we get our cereal. • Oatmeal has more protein than whole wheat. Samuel Johnson said oats are "a grain which is generally given to horses but in Scotland supports the people." A Scot replied, "That is why in England you have such fine horses and in Scotland we have such fine men." • Grape Nuts is one of the few cereals with no added sugar. It has nothing to do with grapes or nuts, being made out of wheat and barley. Charles Post named it Grape-Nuts because it tasted nutty and he thought its taste came from dextrose, called grape sugar at the time. • Charles Post cashed in on the success of the cereal business when he came out with a cereal he called Elijah's Manna. He tried to export it to Britain but they refused to register it, feeling giving such a religious name to a food item was sacrilegious. Post changed the name to Post Toasties. • If all the shredded wheat biscuits consumed by Americans in a single year were placed end-to-end, they would circle the globe twice. • After winning the Olympic decathlon in 1976, Bruce Jenner was signed up to sell Wheaties. On the air, Jenner claimed he had eaten Wheaties all his life. The assistant district attorney in San Francisco brought suit against General Mills, claiming consumer fraud. They felt that Jenner hadn't really eaten Wheaties all his life. Jenner challenged

the DA to ask his mother. The suit was dropped. • The Trix rabbit is always trying to sneak a bowl of Trix cereal, but the kids constantly take it away from him, saying "Trix is for kids!" During the 1976 presidential elections, General Mills worried that this might be teaching kids a bad thing: try as you might, you'll never reach your goal. So they put it to the vote. By sending in box-top ballots, kids were asked to vote on whether or not the rabbit would get his Trix. 99% voted yes. Amidst great fanfare, the rabbit got to eat a whole bowl on the next commercial. Then, like Oliver Twist, he held out his empty bowl and asked for more— only to be told he had to wait for the next election. • In 1964 both Kelloggs and Post introduced cereal that had freeze-dried fruit in it. They thought the fruit would absorb moisture from the milk and be reconstituted in the bowl. Unfortunately it took so long for the fruit to rehydrate that the cereal was hopelessly soggy by the time the fruit was edible. • Indians brought popcorn to the first Thanksgiving dinner with the Pilgrims, and the Pilgrims liked it so much they later poured milk on it and ate it like cereal. • Kellogg's makes four out of the five most popular cereals in America: Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes, Raisin Bran, and Rice Krispies. General Mills' Cheerios is the fifth. • Cheerios spend more on advertising than any other single food product. • High sugar cereals are stored at the kid's eye level whereas nutritious brands are placed at the adult eye level. Children's cereals have an average of 44% sugar but adults have 10% sugar. An ice cream bar is 20% sugar, but Sugar Smack cereal is 61% sugar. • 46% of Frosted Flakes are consumed by adults.

TIDBITS® REVS UP SOME HARLEY FACTS by Kathy Wolfe

In honor of the 73rd annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally being held August 5 through 11, Tidbits checks out the facts on Harley-Davidson, founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. • In 1901, 21-year-old William Harley wrapped up a blueprint drawing of a single-cylinder engine designed to be attached to a regular bicycle frame. Two years later, with the help of his childhood friend Arthur Davidson, their first motorcycle rolled out of their first “factory,” a 10’ x 15’ wooden shed. Arthur’s brothers joined the company shortly afterward, boosting 1903’s production to three motorcycles. Eight cycles were sold in 1905, and 50 the following year. While the first Harley was black, customers in 1905 could choose black or the “Silent Grey Fellow,” Each had hand-painted stripes and a hand-lettered “Harley-Davidson Motor Company” on the fuel tank. • Harley-Davidson expanded to a new factory measuring 28’ x 80’ in 1906, and six full-time employees were on staff. The next year, production increased to 150. Another new factory came along in 1913, boasting 297,110 sq. ft, compared to the 2,240 sq. ft. of the 1906 facility. The larger area enabled the company to produce 12,904 cycles that year. • Seventeen years after the first cycle rolled out of that wooden shed, HarleyDavidson was the largest motorcycle company in the world, with dealerships in 67 countries. Over 28,000 motorcycles were produced in 1920.

• Of all the country’s motorcycle manufacturers in business in 1929, only Indian and Harley-Davidson were able to weather the stock market crash. Production at H-D dropped from 22,350 bikes to 3,703. Sales to police forces helped them survive the economy’s collapse. • H-D profited greatly from the use of their motorcycles during war time. Over 20,000 Harleys were used during World War I, and nearly 90,000 were put into service during World War II. • In 1946, foreign motorcycles hit the American market and the competition with British and Japanese bikes was fierce. British imports had a sportier appearance and were cheaper and more reliable. Favorable tax laws governing imports made these bikes even more attractive. Although Harley-Davidson introduced the Hydra-Glide with the Panhead engine in an attempt to compete, it was heavy and not as sporty. It didn’t take long for H-D’s market share to shrink to a mere 6% of the market. By 1950, 40% of the motorcycles in the U.S. were foreign-made. • Marlon Brando was 30 years old when he rode a British Triumph in the 1954 movie The Wild One, the story of a motorcycle gang terrorizing a small town. The film’s popularity did nothing to help the sales of Harleys. In an effort to combat the appeal of British bikes, in 1957, H-D introduced the Sportster, considered “father of the superbikes.” • The 1969 cult film Easy Rider featured Peter Fonda as Captain America riding a completely transformed H-D Electra-Glide with a Panhead engine. Four bikes were customized for the

making of the film. Three were stolen before the movie was completed, and one burned. Fonda later restored the burned bike and today that chopper can be seen at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. The Harleys ridden by the main characters in the film were purchased from the Los Angeles Police Department, as Harley-Davidson refused to provide free bikes for the movie. • The 1960s ushered in the customizing trend, but H-D failed to jump on the bandwagon in time. Their earnings faded, and the company was forced to go public, selling shares for the first time in 1965. In 1969, the family relinquished control of the business they had owned for 66 years, selling out to the American Machine and Foundry Company for $21 million. AMF, famous in the bowling industry, allowed the quality to slip considerably. Sales plummeted and by 1980, there seemed little chance of recovery for the company. In 1981, 13 senior H-D executives banded together and purchased the company from AMF for $80 million and the recovery began. In 1986, two million shares of common stock were offered, returning the company to public ownership. • There have been a number of “glides” throughout Harley history. The HydraGlide was introduced in 1949, with the first hydraulic front forks. This evolved into the Duo-Glide in 1958 with the addition of rear brakes and hydraulic rear suspension. The Electra-Glide came along with its electric starter motor in 1965, and on to the Super-Glide in 1971 and the Wide-Glide in 1980. • Harley has also had a variety of “heads” over the years. First there was the Flathead, dubbed as such because

of the shape of the cylinder head cover. Introduced in 1929, it was a 45-cubic-inch side-valve engine. The Knucklehead, the first V-Twin model, debuted in 1936 with its cylinder covers shaped like clenched fists. It featured two fuel tanks with the instrument panel positioned between them. It was produced until 1947. Along came the Panhead in 1948 with aluminum cylinder covers resembling upside-down saucepans. Panheads were around until 1965. The next year brought the Shovelhead, whose cylinder covers looked like the back of a shovel. Compare the Shovelhead’s engine size of 74 cubic inches with that 1903 model’s 25 cubic inches! The year 1984 brought in the Blockhead, an 80-cubic-inch engine. • The 1932 Harley-Davidson could be purchased for around $300. If you’re looking to buy a 2013 Electra-Glide CVO Ultra-Classic 100th Anniversary Edition, better set aside about $38,000. A new Sportster will set you back around $11,000. • For seven days every August, Main Street in Sturgis, South Dakota, population 6,700, is packed with thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts who gather to race and tour. The first rally was held in 1938, drawing nine racers and 200 spectators. The two-day rally offered $500 in prize money. Two years later, 150 racers participated in front of 5,000 onlookers. Close to 450,000 are expected for this year’s rally. • Harley-Davidson expects to ship about 260,000 motorcycles to dealerships during 2013.

By day It's all Around us two I was so overwhelmed with energy I couldn’t get warm. I ended up with my winter coat on and by the time I got home I had to take a hot bath and go to bed. This time of year it 's easy to find yourself surrounded by people. It can and should be a wonderful thing - as long as you know how to protect yourself. It’s very possible to have your energy pulled from you, but more often we get too much from others and can become overwhelmed. Think of all the times when you’ve been at a party or festival, at a parade or party, or just out shopping; suddenly you felt the need to leave. It was just too much and you needed to go. What’s happening during those times is that you are absorbing energy from others. It usually happens gradually. You could be out shopping for an afternoon, just wandering around the stores and passing by people. With each person you pass, if they are not protecting themselves, you will absorb a

● On an average day in the United States, there will be 10 reported UFO sightings.

● It was President Abraham Lincoln who made the following sage observation: “The man who is incapable of making a mistake is incapable of anything.”

● If you’re like the hypothetical average person, your mouth will create 10,000 gallons of saliva over the course of your lifetime.

● Arizonans take note: Hunting camels is illegal in your state.

● Unless you were around on April 17, 1964, you may not be aware of the hullabaloo caused by the introduction of the Mustang. In Seattle, a truck driver was so distracted by a display of new Mustangs that he crashed his cement truck through the window of the dealership. In Chicago, so many people were trying to crowd into the cars in a showroom that the dealer had to lock all the vehicle doors. A dealer in New Jersey had only one Mustang, so he auctioned it off. The winner of the auction insisted on sleeping in his new car that night, just to make sure nobody else got it before his check cleared.

● If you’re a centenarian, you might want to consider moving to New Mexico. In that state, there is a law declaring that everyone 100 and older is tax-exempt.

● The drug Ivermectin is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic, used mainly to treat infestations of worms. The people who have been helped by this medication might be surprised to learn that the drug was developed through research spurred by a fungus found growing on the golf shoe of a botanist.

● Gross fact of the day: Half of the bacteria in the human mouth haven’t even been identified yet by science.

● In 1977, Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Company, made the following regrettable statement: “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.”

Come along with Tidbits as we consider the marvel of engineering called the human foot! • With 26 bones, 114 ligaments and 20 muscles, a foot is an amazing invention. A quarter of the bones in the human body are located in the feet. (Add in the bones in the hand, and that accounts for fully half of our bones.) Feet need to be structural marvels. • Consider that the average adult travels around 1,000 miles a year on foot, taking about 10,000 steps per day. A typical 70-year-old human will have walked a distance equivalent to going around the circumference of the earth four times. The feet strike the ground 17,000 times in a 20 mile marathon run, but even a mile of gentle walking subjects the feet to about 80 tons of weight. Feet must be sturdy. • Although 98% of us are born with healthy feet, 80 out of 100 Americans develop foot problems during their lifetime. At any given moment, about 30 million Americans suffer from foot problems, ranging from corns and ingrown nails to club feet and fallen arches. • Four times as many women as men deal with foot problems, mostly due to high heels. Podiatrists trace 95% of the 500 known foot ailments to ill-designed shoes or improper foot care.
