A PINCH OF SALT by Kathy Wolfe

Life is tasteless without salt! In addition to providing seasoning, it’s a component of your blood, sweat and tears and is essential to the proper function of the human body. What don’t you know about this important commodity? Read along and see!

• The Bible contains the first written reference to salt, recorded in the Book of Job around 2250 B.C. Salt is mentioned in 31 other places, including the story of Lot’s wife being turned into a pillar of salt when she disobeyed the words of angels. As she and her family were fleeing the destruction of the wicked city of Sodom, she was told not to look back, but she turned to gaze at the blaze and was transformed. • There are two chief methods of producing salt — evaporation and mining. In the evaporation process, salty sea water is guided into large clay forms for natural evaporation by the sun. Sea salt is the source for about 80 mineral elements essential to proper body function, including iron, iodine, sulfur and magnesium. In underground mines, salt is found in veins and domes and is mined by large machines snaking their way through passageways. Large underground deposits can be found around the globe, including parts of Ontario, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan in Canada, and New York, Michigan, Texas, Ohio, Kansas and New Mexico in the United States. There are such large beds near Salzburg, Austria, it was aptly named “The City of Salt.” The United Kingdom is also home to extensive salt beds. • Throughout history, salt has been a valuable item of trade. Governments have frequently controlled the price of salt, maintaining a monopoly by charging special taxes. Salt taxes have supported monarchs and funded wars. During the Middle Ages, salt was so expensive, it earned the nickname “white gold.” • Salt has been used as currency for centuries. Even up to the beginning of the 20th century, one-pound bars of salt were used as money in what is now the country of Ethiopia. Early civilization advanced tremendously once salt’s ability to preserve food was discovered. No longer were people dependent on what was readily available to eat, and long-distance travel also increased as preserved provisions could be transported. Early Roman soldiers’ wages were paid in salt, or salarium argentum, a term from which we derive our English word “salary.” Romans even built roads specifically for transporting salt, such as the Via Salaria,

In ancient Greece, salt was traded for slaves, leading to the expression, “He is not worth his salt.” In early American history, President Thomas Jefferson hoped that the Lewis and Clark expedition would be able to locate a mountain of salt rumored to stand near the Missouri River, which would have been a very valuable find. American soldiers also received salt as salary during the War of 1812 because the government lacked currency to pay them. • Many cultures use salt in their religious rituals because it symbolizes “incorruptible purity.” The Shinto religion uses salt to purify an area. A handful of salt is even thrown into the center of the wrestling ring by Shintos to ward off wicked spirits before Sumo wrestlers begin their match. Buddhist custom calls for throwing salt over the shoulder upon entering a house after attending a funeral. This

• On Sept. 9, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declares the name of the new nation to be the “United States” of America. It replaced the term “United Colonies,” which had been in general use. • On Sept. 3, 1783, the American Revolution officially comes to an end when representatives of the United States, Great Britain, Spain and France sign the Treaty of Paris. The signing signified America’s status as a free nation, as Britain formally recognized the independence of its 13 former American colonies. • On Sept. 7, 1936, Charles Harden Holley is born in Lubbock, Texas. Writing and performing under the name Buddy Holly, he would have an influence on rock ‘n’ roll that would far outlast his tragically shortened career. He left behind a legacy that includes “That’ll Be The Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Not Fade Away,” It’s So Easy,” “Everyday,” “Oh Boy!” and “Maybe Baby.” • On Sept. 6, 1943, a new high-speed train traveling between New York City and Washington, D.C., derails, killing 79 people and seriously injuring 100 more. The Congressional Limited traveled at an unprecedented speed of 65 mph. • On Sept. 4, 1957, Ford Motor Company unveils the Edsel, the first new automobile brand produced by one of the Big Three car companies since 1938.

PINCH OF SALT (continued):

is to frighten off evil spirits that might be clinging to the homeowner’s back. Several European countries follow the tradition of throwing a handful of salt into a dead person’s coffin before the burial in order to keep the devil away. In some cultures, a bride pours it into her shoes for luck, and parents rub it all over newborn babies.

Salt also removes coffee stains from glass coffee pots. Mix 4 teaspoons of salt with a cup of crushed ice and a tablespoon of water and swirl it around in the pot. A handful of salt thrown into the flames in your fireplace helps loosen chimney soot. Are you troubled by weeds and grass growing up in your patio or sidewalk bricks and blocks? Spread salt in the cracks and sprinkle with water. You can remove the odor of fish from your hands by rubbing them with a lemon wedge dipped in salt.

• Lots of folks believe that spilling salt will bring bad luck. This superstition may have its origins in Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of The Last Supper. Close observation shows an upset salt container at the place of Judas Iscariot, Jesus’ • Only about 6 percent of the world’s salt finds betrayer.

F to dissolve the amount spilled, while superstitious Germans believe that spilling salt brings about hostility, the result of the devil disturbing peace. • Because fruits and vegetables are nearly saltfree, vegetarians are often at risk for dietary problems. The human body needs electrolytes to function, and without salt, it runs out of electrolytes. • The familiar cylindrical salt container with the metal spout was introduced by Morton in 1911. Prior to that, salt was packaged in large cumbersome bags, which, during wet weather, wouldn’t allow the pouring of salt. Morton’s slogan “When it rains, it pours” touted its moisture-proof container. In 1914, the company introduced its famous “umbrella girl” on packaging. Her appearance has been updated five times since, in 1921, 1933, 1941, 1956 and 1968. • Salt has about 14,000 different uses, including helping in household tasks. When added to one tablespoon of lemon juice, it removes rust from scissors and other household tools. Just mix into a paste and rub on the rusty area.

USE BOLTS TO ANCHOR PICTURES TO WALL Q: I have to hang some heavier pictures, and I’m a little confused by all the choices in different kinds of bolts. What options do I have? -- Frank in Tuscon A: Depending on the weight of the item you’re hanging on the wall, a variety of bolts are available -- but the most common are expansion bolts or anchors (also known as Molly bolts, for some reason), and toggle bolts. Both kinds of bolts are helpful in anchoring somewhat heavy objects to drywall when a stud can’t be located or used. Expansion bolts have an exterior plastic sheath, which is straight when inserted into a hole drilled into the wall, but expand behind the wall once placed. They’re designed for heavy objects like large framed pictures, mirrors or shelves. Toggle bolts have metal wings that unfold once inserted on the other side of the drywall, providing a sturdy backing for much heavier objects like small cabinets. To use an expansion bolt, mark the spot on the wall where you plan to hang a picture or heavy item. Drill a hole at the width specified to fit the expansion bolt. With the metal screw inserted fully into the expansion sheath, push the bolt through the hole or gently tap in with

a hammer. Turn the screw head clockwise until it’s tight -- this action expands the sheath so that it sits snug against the wall. Unscrew the metal screw from the expansion bolt sheath and mount the picture by inserting the screw through the picture’s hanger or screw hole and back into the expansion bolt. To use a toggle bolt, first drill a hole in the wall at the width specified. Unscrew the metal flange (the spring-loaded expansion unit) from the metal screw. Run the screw through the screw hole or the picture’s hanger, then screw the metal flange back onto the screw, on the opposite side of the hanger or screw hole. Pinch the flange closed with one hand and push it through the drilled hole while guiding the picture into position. Once the flange is all the way through, pull the metal screw until you can feel the flange pressing against the back side of the wall. Tighten the metal screw until it and the picture are secure. HOME TIP: Metal or wooden studs are located approximately 16 inches apart on average. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

ALL ABOUT CAMELS Most of us know that camels are reffered to as “ships of the desert,” but what else do you know about this unusual creature? Follow along and learn some new facts! • One hump or two? A one-hump camel is of Arabian descent and is known as the dromedary. The two-humped Asian variety is called the Bactrian. Although subjected to East Asia’s blistering summers of over 100ºF (38ºC), they are also able to endure winter temperatures of -20ºF (-29ºC). • Although you might think the camel is a homely animal, its name comes from the Arabic word meaning “beauty.” • A camel is an ungulate, in other words, a mammal with hooves. Each foot has two toes and a pad, and the pads spread as it walks, enabling it to maneuver on soft sand without sinking. The camel’s body is specially designed to protect itself from sand — It has three eyelids to protect the eyes from blowing sand and can also close its nostrils as a defense. Like the cow, camels are ruminants, meaning they have a multi-chambered stomach. • The camel’s legs are very thin, yet they are able to support not only the 1,500 pounds (680 kg) of the camel’s body weight, but heavy cargo weighing up to another 1,000 pounds (454 kg). • If you think the camel’s hump is a reserve of water to help him through the hot desert, you’re mistaken! The hump, rising about 30 inches (75 cm) out of the body, is actually fat, up to 80 pounds (36 kg) worth, that the animal can metabolize for energy and water as needed. As the camel travels great distances without sustenance, it uses up its hump’s stores, and it arrives at its destination with a flabby hump or no hump at all! A camel is able to tolerate a 40 percent loss in body mass. • When the camel is ready to replenish its water supply, it can drink 30 gallons (135 l) in just 13 minutes! A camel has the ability to carefully preserve its body’s hydration by increasing its own body temperature, thus preventing sweating and subsequent water loss. Nostrils also trap water vapor and return it to the body’s fluids. In addition, the green plants the camel ingests contain moisture that further contributes to its hydration. It’s not unusual for a camel to endure several weeks or to travel up to 100 miles (161 km) without water.

• Although the camel might appear clumsy or ungainly, it can actually run up to 40 miles per hour (64 km/hr) in a short burst and sustain longer distances at 25 miles per hour (40 km/ hr). • Many of the deserts’ nomadic tribes count on camel milk as one of their staple foods. The milk is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins and is lower in fat and cholesterol than cow’s milk. Bedouins frequently process it into a nutritious drinkable yogurt, and some of these roaming tribes live on nothing but camel milk for six months. • The female carries her young between 12 and 14 months. The season and the availability of food both affect the length of gestation. The average camel lives 40 to 50 years. F

FAMOUS LANDMARKS:

THE ALAMO By Samantha Weaver

• It’s still not known who made the following sage observation: “To succeed in politics, it is sometimes necessary to rise above your principles.” • It was beloved American poet Robert Frost who made the following sage observation: “A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.” • In 1938, Time magazine featured Adolph Hitler on the cover as its Man of the Year. • You might be surprised at some of the amazing feats that can be accomplished with the aid of modern medicine. In 2008, two women in India gave birth at the age of 70. With the aid of egg donation and postmenopausal in vitro fertilization, Rajo Devi Lohan gave birth to her only child, a girl. Charan Singh Panwar and his wife, Omkari Panwar, already had two daughters and five grandchildren, but they wanted a son. Using the same procedure, Omkari had twins, a boy and a girl.

• The first time a toilet was ever seen on television was in the pilot episode of “Leave It to Beaver,” in 1957. • The most common name in the world is Muhammed. • If you live in the South, home of huge roaches, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that a cockroach can live for a week without a head. When the headless insect does finally die, it’s from starvation, not from the loss of its head. • Those who study such things say that there are 45,000 chickens for every person on the planet. Thought for the Day: “The reason that adulation is not displeasing is that, though untrue, it shows one to be of consequence enough, in one way or other, to induce people to lie.” -- Lord Byron (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Most everyone is familiar with the phrase “Remember the Alamo!” but how much do you really remember about this famous landmark? Read along, and you might just learn some new details about this San Antonio, Texas, site. • Franciscan monks and Spanish settlers began construction on the Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1724. It served as home to Catholic missionaries and their American Indian converts until 1793. The Spanish government then closed the mission and distributed the remaining lands and buildings to the Indian residents. • In the early 1800s, the mission became home to a Spanish cavalry unit. It was this group who gave the structure the name Alamo, the Spanish word for “cottonwood,” in honor of their hometown in Mexico, Alamo de Parras. The military remained occupants of the Alamo up until the time of the Texas Revolution. • As western expansion continued, more and more people were migrating to Texas, and in 1821, Stephen Austin led a group of 300 U.S. families to the area. As the population increased, the Texans sought independence from Mexico. In late 1835, a group of Texans overtook the Alamo, wresting control from the Mexican troops, putting Colonel William Travis and Colonel Jim Bowie in command of the fort. Reinforcements arrived in early 1836 to help with the defense, including American frontiersman and former Tennessee congressman Davy Crockett. About 200 volunteers were in place to defend the Alamo. • On February 23, 1836, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna marched his Mexican force of soldiers numbering in the thousands to the outskirts of San Antonio and laid siege to the Alamo in an attempt to retake Texas. Although caught off guard while they slept, the Texans refused to give up their fight for independence and were determined to defend the fort, despite their small numbers. The Texan commander sent urgent pleas for reinforcements and supplies, but response was minimal. • Several skirmishes took place over the next 12 days but with few casualties. On the 13th day, the Mexican army broke through a breach in the courtyard’s outer wall. Santa Anna’s orders were to take no prisoners, and all but two of the defenders were killed. But the Texans had fought valiantly, with the Mexican forces suffering casualties estimated anywhere between 600 and 1,600. This final battle lasted about 90 minutes. • For the next three months, the Alamo was in the control of the Mexican army. In April of that year, 800 Texans led by Sam Houston defeated Santa Anna’s 1,500-man force near the site of present-day Houston. “Remember the Alamo!” was their battle cry as they attacked. • Over the course of its long history, the Alamo has served as a mission, military quarters, housing for American Indians, a hospital, army supply depot, jail, commercial store, Masonic lodge, movie set and historic tourist attraction. The 4.2-acre site in the heart of downtown San Antonio receives more than 2.5 million visitors each year. • “…I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor and that of his country.” – Colonel William Barret Travis.

HOLLYWOOD -- In l960, Marlon Brando was scouting locations for “Mutiny on the Bounty.” He fell in love with Tetiaroa, a 27-square-mile atoll, 33 miles north of Tahiti, with 1,445 acres of sand and 4.5 acres of lagoon, 100 feet deep. Brando bought the island for $300,000 and dreamed of making it part environmental laboratory and part resort. After his death in 2004, executors for his estate paved the way for a Tahitian developer to create a world-class sustainable resort. In 2013, Brando’s greatest dream will become a reality when “The Brando Resort” finally opens. Drawing power from solar energy, deep ocean-water cooling and coconut-oil biofuel, it can sustain 35 villas with 100 percent renewable energy, and is set back from the beach, in accordance with Brando’s wishes. That’s one place you’ll never see “A Streetcar Named Desire”! A fan wrote to ask: “What’s become of “Gossip Girl’s” Chace Crawford’s movie career? In May, he appeared in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” with Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Dennis Quaid and Chris Rock. The film took in $74 million; unfortunately, it cost $40 million just

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Rosanna Arquette. The film took in a paltry $105,960 in the U.S. because of unfavorable reviews. Two other projects, one with Katie Holmes, and the other, “The House Gun,” about a South African man accused of killing his housemate, with Pierce Brosnan as his father, seem to be lost in limbo. And he dodged a bullet when he dropped out of the “Footloose” remake ... maybe Chace should fire whoever is picking his movies!

Due to the major studios running scared, playing revolving door for the best release dates, we can’t believe how many films have been pushed back to next year. “The Great Gatsby,” directed by “Moulin Rouge’s” Baz Luhrmann, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan was scheduled for an August release, but now will not open until sometime next year. “The Man of Steel” with British actor Henry Cavill as Superman, along with Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, won’t open until June 2013. The George Clooney/Sandra Bullock flick “Gravity” has been delayed until sometime in 2013. Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone and Sean Penn won’t be seen in “Gangster Squad” until January. Sylvester Stallone’s “Bullet to

emy Renner’s “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” and Channing Tatum’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” also have been pushed to next year. By the time these films come out, we may have read so much about them we’ll think we’ve already seen them! (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
