They appeared at candy counters for the first time around 1930 and can still be found at specialty candy shops. • You’ll have a little more trouble finding wax lips, introduced in the early 1900s, which could be chewed into a waxy, cherry-flavored gum. If you didn’t like the lips, vampire fangs and bushy black moustaches were also available.

● Those who study such things say that marriages involving so-called mail-order brides have a lower rate of divorce than marriages that come about in more traditional ways. *** Thought for the Day: “Among men, it seems, historically at any rate, that processes of co-ordination and disintegration follow each other with great regularity, and the index of the co-ordination is the measure of the disintegration which follows. There is no mob like a group of well-drilled soldiers when they have thrown off their discipline. And there is no lostness like that which comes to a man when a perfect and certain pattern has dissolved about him. There is no hater like one who has greatly loved.” -- John Steinbeck (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• In 2010, a $3.8 million restoration was completed. One hundred workers labored to renovate both the internal structure and outer appearance. Layers of fungi were removed and small cracks were repaired. More than 60,000 pieces of soapstone were replaced with stone taken from the same Swedish quarry as used for the original. The restoration also corrected the egregious vandalism that shocked and angered the public when individuals spray-painted the statue with graffiti, an act the mayor of Rio called a “crime against the nation.” • During the 2010 renovation, a dynamic lighting system was installed at the base of the monument to produce special effects. At the unveiling, green and yellow lights illumined the statue to cheer on the Brazilian national football (soccer) team competing in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

• The average adult has 32 teeth. The four front teeth on both top and bottom are the incisors (think scissors, designed for cutting). On each side of the incisors are the four sharp and pointed canine teeth. Premolars, sometimes called bicuspids, are next in line, eight in all, four up and four down. The eight molars include the wisdom teeth, which typically grow in between the ages of 17 and 21. • Those pesky cavities we try to avoid are caused by the acid produced by bacteria in the mouth. Bacteria thrive on carbohydrates, so any time you eat carbs the bacteria gets to work and starts producing the acid. It’s not just sugar that kicks the bacteria into gear — rice, potatoes, bread, fruits and vegetables can also trigger the bacteria growth. It’s not how many carbs you eat, but rather how long your teeth are exposed to them. This is why your dentist advises you to brush and floss often. • Eating a lot of carbs at one meal won’t do nearly as much damage as sipping away on sugary

The eldest is Corbin Bernsen, who is best known for playing Arnold Becker on “L.A.

Q:

A: The March release of Disney’s “John

Carter” is indeed based on Burroughs’ Barsoom book series, which were published in various magazines as a serial from 1912 to 1943. Because of their popularity, they were then published as their own book series from 1917 to 1964. The film, however, didn’t prove to be quite so popular. It was received with mixed reviews and a dismal box-office take. The film was originally planned to be a trilogy, but that plan is on hold because of the film’s poor reception by moviegoers. “John Carter” is available on DVD and Bluray, so you can see for yourself whether it deserves a sequel. ***

West Nile Virus Cases Up In 2012, CDC Says

Is it Time to Create or Update Your Estate Plan?

Nile Virus had been reported, leading to 65 deaths. Although cases have been reported in 49 states (all but Nevada), five states (Texas, Mississippi, South Dakota, Louisiana and Mississippi) account for 68 percent of the total cases. The next few weeks look particularly bleak because the highest incidence of infection occurs in late August and September. The actual number of infections is much greater than that reported, as only 20 percent of patients infected with the West Nile Virus develop symptoms. These symptoms occur three to 15 days after being bitten, and include fever, headache, generalized muscle aches, enlarged lymph nodes and occasionally a rash on the trunk of the body. About 1 percent of infected patients develop inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. Of these patients, 10 percent will die. Symptoms of brain inflammation include neck stiffness, confusion, headache, visual loss, convulsions, numbness and weakness of limbs. Those who survive often have permanent neurological problems. Sadly, there is no known treatment. West Nile Virus infections tend to be more serious in the very old, the very young and those with a compromised immune system due to illness or medications used to treat rheumatoid arthritis or cancer. While West Nile Virus is making headlines, tickborne infections, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease, are much more prevalent. Fleabites can transmit a number of serious diseases, the most common of which is cat scratch disease. And flies that have been exposed to contaminated plant or animal products can transmit infections to people, causing gastroenteritis, upper respiratory infections and urinary infections. As insect-borne infections are so common, we must do all we can to avoid insect bites. Many communities throughout the country are attempting to reduce the mosquito population by using aerial spraying helicopters. This has led to some opposition by those who believe the potential adverse effects of spraying outweigh the benefits. While the CDC does state that spraying is the least effective way to control the insect populations, the risks to the general public are small. Humans and their pets should avoid direct contact with aerial spray, which has been shown, albeit rarely, to cause asthma, cough and an occasional skin rash. More important than spraying is what we individually can do to reduce the risk of being bitten by an infected insect. When outdoors, always use an insect repellent that contains an EPA-registered active ingredient. The most common, DEET, does not kill, but repels, insects. Because DEET is directly applied to human skin, its potential toxicity has been extensively studied. Virtually no adverse effects have been reported. Some environmentally conscious individu-

Yet the partner of the person who wrote this letter, someone who has been together as part of a couple for almost 40 years, someone who has raised two wonderful kids, can’t claim a nickel of his partner’s Social Security benefits. Where is the justice in that?

Email: valley Page 11

And like any widow, you will have the option of taking reduced benefits on one record and later switching to full benefits on another record. For example, you could get about 75 percent of your retirement benefit at age 62 and at age 66, switch to 100 percent of your divorced widow’s benefit. And assuming husband number two dies before you do, you could then switch to benefits on his record IF they pay a higher rate than whatever TUES., JULY 31you are getting at the time.

As grandparents on the sidelines we don’t want to meddle, but we can see that he is not being taught any sort of work ethic or the value of earning his own pay. He is not in touch with the real world. Is it too late to rattle his cage and give him an adult wake-up call?

jerk comments, we might immediately laugh and simply say: “Oh, gosh. Now wasn’t that a dumb thing to say?” This can sometimes get you out of the awkward spot, but usually it’s already too late. Another way we can embarrass ourselves is to be so intent on waiting for the chance to speak that we are oblivious to what is being said by others. When you do drop your precious jewel on everyone you might find yourself standing there in awkward silence with the others just staring at you. True masters of good conversation know that the secret to wholesome dialogue is not about how eloquently and intelligently you speak, but how carefully you listen! Practicing silence and becoming a good listener not only courteously gives the other your full attention, but it also gives you time to process and think more carefully before you open your mouth. If the topic is totally foreign to you or over your head, you might want to just keep the other person talking by simply saying, “That’s interesting, tell me more,” or “That’s a good question. I never thought about that.” It is never wise to try contributing anything just to be talking. It’s far better in this case to either admit your ignorance on the subject, or just simply keep your mouth shut. Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have stated this better when he said, “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt.”Some Make this sage advice your motto! things are just * * *

On Oct. 10, Diesel’s body was found in the water. Conspiracy theories began to fly almost immediately. Many people believed (and still believe) that Diesel was murdered. ● On Sept. 25, 1957, under escort from 1,000 paratroopers in the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division, nine black students enter all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Ark.

Q:

I have enclosed the mark on the bottom of a porcelain plate that my great-grandfather gave my great-grandmother around 1920. The plate is decorated with pastel flowers and green leaves against a white background. It is 12 inches in diameter, has handles and gold trim. It is in mint condition. It was passed along to me from my mother. I would never part with it, but I would like to

nounced retirement during the middle of a tournament didn’t seem too out of place for the man. Though not an outsized personality or multi Grand Slam winner like McEnroe or Connors, he still managed to get into the club. In another decade or so, ask yourself who was a dominant male American tennis player at the turn of the century. You’re not going to say “Mardi Fish,” or anyone else for that matter. He’s only 30 years old. I bet he comes back, and if he doesn’t, something tells me he’ll find a different line of work. For those of us in the post-game business, he’ll be sorely missed. Rarely has an athlete been more forthcoming at a press conference. Hey Andy, you just lost at Indian Wells to an inferior player and said your confidence was shot ... can you elaborate? “It comes from playing like s**t. Why would I feel confident right now? If that was the case, I don’t think we’d be sitting here having this funerallike press conference. It’s just weird because, I used to hit for a half-hour and then go eat Cheetos the rest of the day ... come out and drill forehands. Now I’m really trying to make it happen, being professional, really going for it ... and I miss my Cheetos.” We’re gonna miss you too, Andy Roddick.

OLD TIME CANDY (from page page 3) • Back in the late 1800s, an Ohio physician Dr. Edward E. Beeman marketed a gum of pepsin powder and chicle, designed to aid digestion. Legendary test pilot Chuck Yeager made Beemans gum famous by chewing a stick before every flight for good luck. In fact, the antacid qualities of pepsin made the gum popular with pilots for reducing stomach agitation in flight. • Clove gum was first manufactured in 1914 by Thomas Adams. Legend has it that the gum grew in popularity during Prohibition because its strong smell masked the odor of illegal alcohol on the breath. • The Beech Nut Company launched Fruit Stripe gum in the 1960s with a zebra as its product icon, packaged in zebra-striped wrappers. It was the only gum with stripes, which were added on after the gum was made. The down side of Fruit Stripe was that it quickly lost its flavor. It has now been re-introduced, and the complaint is the same -- It’s pretty much flavorless after only about five minutes of chewing. • Chicago’s Williamson Candy Store produced and sold chocolate in the 1920s. One of their young customers named Henry frequently hung around the establishment flirting with the girls that made candy. He became so much of a fixture around the store that before long, employees were asking him to run errands and do little odd jobs. Soon the words, “Oh, Henry, could you do this?” and “Oh, Henry, will you bring me that?” became a very familiar sound. When they developed a new chocolate covered confection to sell made with peanuts, fudge and carmel, it was decided unanimously to name the new creation “Oh Henry!” ■

Sand shots made simple Playing a shot from the sand can be anything but a day at the beach, but it doesn’t have to be a bad experience if you work on a few basic steps. The first thing to look for in the bunker is the firmness of the sand, and your footprints are the first clue. Shallow prints mean firm sand and a lively ball; deep prints mean soft sand and a cushioned hit needing more power. In order to control the distance the ball flies from the sand you must be aware of two things: Length of the swing: Tour players have what I call a “designated swing area in the sand. For me, my hands are chest-high both in the backswing and the follow-through. You need to find a comfortable range of motion for the club to swing on every sand shot. Speed of the swing: Establish PROOF aADVERTISING consistent swing speed regardFinalless Changes DUE:shot.

Digging too deep or too thin produces disastrous results. Once you have established these elements, you can plug in a variety of clubs to control the distance the ball flies from the sand. Short shots need a lob or a sand wedge; for longer shots go with a pitching or approach wedge. Work on these techinques to find what works best for you and you’ll end up making those difficult sand shots a “day at the beach”.

“No, Doc, you don’t understand. lt’s my clubs that need the help, not me. My driver’s developed a stubborn slice fixation, and l think my putter has a serious inferiority complex.”

PHOBIAS (continued): • Some phobias relate to what’s up above, such as the sun (heliophobia), the clouds (nephophobia), the moon (selenophobia), and the stars (siderophobia). Some folks are just afraid of looking up – they are called anablephobes. • Not all phobias seem that abnormal or uncommon. Lots of people might have a fear of death, known as necrophobia. But those with an extreme form might be terrified of being buried alive. A nosocomephobe has a fear of hospitals, a verminophobe is afraid of germs, and a hydrophobe has an irrational fear of water. • Individuals suffering from extreme agoraphobia rarely leave their homes, due to their fear of public or open spaces and the inescapable situations that may occur there. Only home is safe. • Some phobias can be a learned behavior that comes from listening to others describe a traumatic event. An individual in one’s life can trigger a phobia, such as peladophobia, the fear of bald people. Those with nosto-phobia, a fear of returning home, may be able to contribute their panic to a specific incident. • People who are afraid of looking into mirrors have cataptrophobia, while those with cyberphobia have a fear of working with computers. A person with an anxiety about memories is a mnemophobe. • Don’t confuse levophobia, the fear of objects to a person’s left, with dextrophobia, the fear of objects to the right. • Although some of us fear the possibility of cancer, an extreme carcinophobe will convince himself he has cancer because he touched someone who has it.
