• The typical full breakfast in the United States and Canada is based on the “full English breakfast,” although in many households a big breakfast is now more likely to be reserved for weekends and holidays. When more people lived on farms and rose early for a day of chores requiring manual labor, a large breakfast was common. Now, it’s more common to start the day with just cereal or toast along with milk, juice and/orPROOF coffee. ADVERTISING

• Created by the collision of the North American and the Juan de Fuca tectonic plates, the Ring of Fire stretches more than 25,000 miles in a horseshoe shape encircling the Pacific Ocean. It contains 452 known volcanoes and over 75% of all the volcanoes in the world, both active and dormant. About 90% of the world’s earthquakes, of which 81% are the world’s most severe, occur along the Ring of Fire. Mount St. Helens is the most active volcano in the Cascade Range portion, with an eruption occuring about once every century.

MOUNT ST. HELENS

By Samantha Weaver

● It was 17th-century French author Francois de la Rochefoucauld who made the following sage observation: “It is more often from pride than from ignorance that we are so obstinately opposed to current opinions; we find the first places taken, and we do not want to be the last.” ● You probably know that Robert E. Lee was a general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and that he ultimately surrendered the war to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at the courthouse at Appomattox, Va. You might not know, though, that Lee had a pet hen that traveled with him everywhere. It’s said that the chicken laid an egg under Lee’s cot every morning.

● It’s a timeless truth that many kids go through an awkward, gawky period during adolescence. In the 16th century, a boy experiencing this phase was known as a hobbledehoy. ● On the morning of a traditional Vietnamese wedding, the bride’s mother visits the groom’s family and presents them with a special plant, representing respect, and chalk that is pink, the color of happiness. ● The 1935 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Carl von Ossietsky, a German writer who spoke out about Nazism in general and Adolf Hitler in particular. Hitler was so offended by the actions of the Nobel Committee in honoring his critic that he issued a decree forbidding any Germans to accept a Nobel Prize in the future. *** Thought for the Day: “History is a vast early warning system.” -- Norman Cousins (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

A forestry worker inspects aftermath devastation.

• In 1982, the 110,000-acre site was declared a National Volcanic Monument (NVM) by Congress, with the full support of President Reagan. Today the NVM offers a place for research, recreation and education. The grounds on the NVM were left intact, just as they were after the eruption, allowing nature to repair and replenish the topography with new vegetation and the repopulation of wildlife. • Today, 32 years after the eruptions of 1980, the once-barren ground has been transformed into a mosaic of plant communities including fireweed, pearly everlasting, penstemon and lupine. Animals are returning as well, including birds (killdeer, red-winged blackbirds, redtailed hawks and osprey) and mammals, including elk and coyote.

A:

Presently, Anthony is filming “Hitchcock,” a movie about “Psycho,” “Rear Window” and “Birds” director Alfred Hitchcock. Unless you want to wait until 2013 for the movie, Google “Anthony Hopkins Hitchcock” to see the eerily true-to-life transformation of the enigmatic actor to the horror auteur through the magic of makeup and prosthetics. The film also stars Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Beal, and definitely on my must-see list for 2013. ***

Everyday CHEAPSKATE

®

by Freddy Groves

Help for Jobless Vets The VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 has created a new benefit for unemployed veterans, and it gears up in July. The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) is for unemployed veterans ages 35 to 60 who: --Don’t have a dishonorable discharge, --Aren’t eligible for other education benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs, --Don’t get compensation for not being employable, --Aren’t in a federal or state job-training program. The goal is to get veterans enrolled in VAapproved programs at community colleges or tech schools, aiming toward a degree or certification in a high-demand occupation (from the Department of Labor-approved list). The DoL will provide job assistance upon completion of the program. Veterans who qualify will get up to 12 months of assistance at a full-time rate, which is now $1,473 a month. The money will go directly to them, not the school, and they’ll need to pay for their own tuition and books. If you’re interested, don’t delay. The program will be limited to 45,000 veterans between July and October, and then 54,000 veterans between October and March 2013. You need to apply through the DoL and VA, beginning May 15, 2012. When you apply, you’ll need to know: your bank routing number (so they can deposit the cash), name and address of the school, the name of the program and the high-demand occupation it leads to. There are 210 high-demand job categories under broad headings such as: Protective Service Occupations, Food Preparation and Serving Related Occupations, Construction and Extraction Occupations, Transportation and Material Moving Occupations. To narrow down the list and see the specific occupations under those headings, go online to benefits.va.gov/vow/education.htm and scroll down to click on High Demand Jobs. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail.com. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Tidbits of Coachella Valley

lifelong health Dr. David Lipschitz

Dental Care Essential to Maintaining Health At every age, a trip to the dentist is important. Having all your teeth pulled and wearing dentures and plates is no fun and most importantly, readily preventable. Thanks to improved dental care, fluoride in water, and more healthful lifestyles, dental cavities are less common and many more Americans are able to keep their natural teeth throughout their lives. Sadly, 108 million Americans do not have dental insurance, and those covered by public programs rarely get the care they need. Federal law requires that every person eligible for Medicaid receive adequate dental care. Because of a shortage of funds, states deliver dental care to fewer than half of the children who are eligible for Medicaid, and statistics for public health programs for adults are even worse. In Minnesota (the state with the best record), 56 percent of children on Medicaid receive no dental care. It is not surprising that the Pew Research Center reported a 16 percent increase in emergency room visits for dental problems between 2006 and 2009. In Florida in 2010, there were 115,000 visits to the ER for dental problems at a cost of $88 million. And dental care given in the ER usually is inadequate. A dentist does not see patients and treatment is limited to antibiotics and pain medication. Failure to pay attention to your teeth and not understanding the importance of flossing and brushing appropriately sets the stage for lifelong tooth problems. Poor dental hygiene leads to the proliferation of bacteria and the production of acids that eat away at tooth enamel, leading to cavities. Simultaneously, a clear, sticky substance called plaque forms that is not only harmful to teeth but also leads to irritation and infection of the gum and severe periodontal disease. Cavities can be huge abscesses where severe pain can occur, and because of gum disease, teeth get loose and are easily lost. Needless to say, bad breath is a common feature. And with advancing aging, increasing tooth decay leads to dental abscesses, loss of teeth, the need for dentures, and eventually, difficulties with

YOUR

SOCIAL SECURITY by Tom Margeneau

Bureaucracy Inaction Q:

I want to apply for Social Security benefits on my ex-husband’s record. I called Social Security to ask how to do this. The lady on the phone told me they can’t even talk to me until I have original copies of the marriage certificate and divorce papers. I have the divorce papers but don’t have the marriage records. When I called the office of the county where we were married, the people there said they can’t send the original, only a copy. I told them that Social Security wants the original. The county employee told me, “That’s not my problem!” I’m worried I never will be able to get Social Security benefits. What am I supposed to do?

A:

Don’t you just love the bureaucracy? It almost makes me embarrassed to think I was once a government employee. I said “almost” because I know -- or at least I sure hope -- that there are way more helpful government employees than the two lazy bumpkins you ran into. The first thing you can do is relax. You will be able to get the marriage documents you need, and you will be able to file for Social Security benefits on your ex-husband’s record. Just reverse the order. The second thing you need to do is go back to your local Social Security office and file a claim for benefits. You do NOT need the documents in question to start the process. The Social Security representative you talked to the first time should have offered you the opportunity to apply for divorced wife’s benefits, and then she should have said, “And now let’s help you get the marriage certificate.” And then she should have given you the address, phone number and/or website for the bureau of vital statistics in the county where you were married. The third thing you need to do is go back to the county office and get a “certified copy” of your original marriage record. That’s what the Social Security Administration needs. A “certified copy” is essentially a photocopy or facsimile of the original document, usually with a raised seal signed by some official from the office that maintains the records. * * *

Q:

In one of your recent columns, you explained that a woman usually cannot file for reduced benefits on her own Social Security record and expect to switch to full spousal benefits on her husband’s record at age 66. But what if she becomes a widow? Here is my situa-

tion. I just recently started taking my Social Security at age 62. I’m getting $1,200 per month. My husband, who is five years older than I am, started taking his Social Security at age 66. He is getting $2,300 per month. When he dies, will I be able to switch to widow’s benefits on his record?

A:

Yes, you will. In the column you referred to, I was so intent on pointing out that if you take reduced benefits on one Social Security record, you generally must file simultaneously for benefits on any other account you might be due benefits. But I should have made it clearer that if one of the spouses dies, the rules change. As a general rule, the only deciding factor that determines how much you get on your husband’s record after he dies is how old you are when you become a widow. Assuming you are 66 or older when that happens, you will start getting whatever he was getting. Or, to be more precise, you will continue to get your own Social Security check, and it will be supplemented with widow’s benefits so that your total monthly payment equals his Social Security amount. * * *

GET OUT OF DEBT NOW!

Q:

In the past several weeks in your columns, you have made many references to a woman’s getting benefits on their husband’s Social Security account -- whether it be a young woman getting monthly checks from her retired husband’s record because she is caring for his minor children or an older woman getting widow’s benefits. But you never talk about a man’s getting any benefits from his wife’s Social Security. This just doesn’t seem fair. What about guys like me? Why can’t we get Social Security from our wives?

A:

Actually, Social Security law is very fair. Dependent fathers, husbands and widowers can get Social Security benefits just as dependent mothers, wives and widows do. The reason you don’t see such benefits often is society hasn’t been fair. Everyone knows the story. Men traditionally have made more money than women. Also, women tend to spend more years out of the paid labor force staying home to care for children. Because Social Security benefits are tied directly to the amount of a person’s earnings and to the number of years a

None of us are exempt from aging, and all of us react to it in different ways, depending upon our attitude toward life in general. In fact, the attitude we choose basically determines how we react to every event and situation we face. Men usually have a harder time adjusting to the leisure time they suddenly find themselves facing after retirement. Many find it difficult to adjust to a daily routine of nothing to do, especially after all the years they spent on a regimented work schedule. Add to that the fact that men often define their personal value and worth through their job. When that is taken away, some begin to feel useless and, like your husband, can become depressed. The solution for improving his attitude is to get him out of the house and involved in as many activities as possible -- and as soon as possible. Even

the early 1900s, they ranked as the third largest dinnerware manufacturer in the United States. Inexpensive foreign imports and high labor costs resulted in the demise of the company. Your water pitcher would probably fetch $35 to $50 in an antiques shop.

Whimsical Figures Are Flights of Fancy Q:

This is a photo of a small figurine that my mother had for about 70 years. It stands around 4 inches tall, has little blue wings on its back, and is in excellent condition. It has a matte finish and is marked on the back with the number “M 6540.” Anything you can tell me about my figurine will be appreciated.

A:

You have a Kewpie figurine. Kewpies were the creation of American illustrator and author, Rose O’Neill. They first appeared as whimsical illustrations in the magazine, Ladies Home Journal, in 1909. They were small, chubby elf-like figures with tiny blue wings. It is thought O’Neill’s baby brother and classical cupids from ancient mythology were her inspirations. Early bisque figurines were made in Germany and not all were marked with the name of the manufacturer. As popularity and demand grew, Kewpie dolls and many related objects were produced. Collectors are most interested in those that have a maker’s mark and are in unusual poses. They have been reproduced by several companies, including Lefton and Ardalt. Many are still being made today. Your circa 1940 Kewpie would probably be worth $125 to $150.

Kewpies were the creation of illustrator, Rose O’Neill.

Q:

I have enclosed the mark on the bottom of a water pitcher that I have. The pitcher is decorated with blueberries, apples and pears, has a lid, and is in perfect condition. It belonged to my grandmother, and I would like to know more about its histor y.

A:

The mark on your pitcher was used by the Edwin M. Knowles China Co. They made semivitreous dinnerware and utility ware in West Virginia, from 1900 to 1963. Your pitcher is part of their utility-ware line that included cake plates, bowls, batter pitchers, shakers, pie servers, and water pitchers. In

12 principles. At practices, instead of berating or embarrassing a player, he used the mistake as a jumping off point for improvement. Lesson No. 4: Emotion Is Your Enemy Wooden won 10 NCAA championships in 12 seasons at UCLA and stood courtside with an almost regal air. Edison was said to have temper tantrums resembling “small riots.” Lesson No. 5: It Takes 10 Hands to Make a Basket. Teamwork. The value of working together ... a team working in unison will beat a larger or equalsized force that has no concept of shared responsibilities. Edison notoriously took credit for everything and refused requests for even the smallest living wage. The final seven lessons speak for themselves. No. 6: Little Things Make Big Things Happen No. 7: Make Each Day Your Masterpiece No. 8: The Carrot Is Mightier Than a Stick No. 9: Make Greatness Attainable By All No. 10: Seek Significant Change No. 11: Don’t Look At the Scoreboard No. 12: Adversity Is Your Asset Today, we use very little of Edison’s actual technology. iPods have replaced the phonograph, and the incandescent lightbulb has been phased out. There was a time when that would have been unthinkable. Wooden, a titan in his own right, left a principled legacy that has proven unsinkable.

• Another country with a popular pancake offering is Sweden. Pannkakor is a thin, flat cake, fried on both sides, similar to a crepe. It is usually served with a fruit topping.

• The Austrian “kipferl” or “kipfel” was brought to Paris by Austrian August Zang when he opened a Viennese bakery in 1838 or 1839. French bakers loved the pastry and started imitating Zang’s “kipferl.” Their pastries became the “croissant,” which is French for crescent. • Many places enjoy the croissant now, including Portugal and Spain. Stuffed croissants and plenty of coffee are very popular at breakfast time. Another quick Spanish specialty is Pan a la Tomate, which is simple but delicious. It consists of bread rubbed with garlic and tomato and then topped with olive oil and salt.

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.
