stiLL tALking By Eileen Brown

I found myself between appointments the other day and the dry, brisk weather seemed ideal for a stroll in old downtown Oak Harbor. I was looking for lady bug paper for a project of my own, so I stopped in at Collage, The Paper Arts Store at 861 SE Pioneer Way to check their stock. Except for a low murmur from the back of the shop, the store was tidy and quiet. What had I stumbled upon? There at a long project table sat several people deep in their own thoughts, dabbing at ink pads and smoothing the colorful ink on glossy photo stock. It was a regular class for card making. The work was beautiful and designs showed the individual’s personal creativity. Leading this project was Naomi Schneider, Collage owner. Customers love her and she treats each person with kindness, serving oodles of praise for every effort. Sharrran Lamb of Oak Harbor has come in for classes several times in four months. “When the project is done, we continue the work at home,” she said. Missy Mekks-Lewis pointed to a nearby magazine called Where Women Create, featuring a Sonoma retreat with industry favorite Anna Corba. “See Naomi in the photo? She said it was wonderful,” said Mekks-Lewis. Two classes will be held Jan. 31 at 10AM and 5:30PM. A $25 fee covers instruction and materials, and you will be giving your handmade Valentines to those you love. Or do as Mekks-Lewis does and bring your loved one with you. He gets around He has come a long way, Billy Wolf, and he’s not slowing down. If you are new to the area or haven’t read about this brave Navy Senior Chief who lost a leg in a single motorcycle crash north of here in 2012, his family sends Season’s Greetings and an update to the people of Oak Harbor. His father writes that Billy and his wife went to Japan for the holidays to see her mother and enjoyed the visit immensely despite the cold and the lack of suitable access at the train stations for those with mobility problems. “Billy told me they enjoyed their time in Seattle (and Whidbey Island) last fall,” wrote his father, the senior Willie Wolf, “and what a pleasure it was to meet everyone there. He couldn’t say enough about how well he was received. I am thanking you and all who have blessed our lives.” The bank account established to pay mounting bills and modify the Wolf house for wheelchair use has been closed, but if you are so moved and would like to help defray the family’s burdensome expenses, please contact me and I will help you get your gift to Billy.

Voices of Whidbey Island Live streaming on the internet

So passionate was fan allegiance, carloads of us would head to a Howard Johnson safely inside the Wisconsin border to watch the Bears play the Packers, a game that was blacked out in our Chicago living rooms. One especially snowy weekend I was in a quandary, knowing spirits would be high and getting higher as the day wore on. In those days, no one had heard of a driver who turned down alcohol in the interest of saving lives. Designated drunk, maybe, but not driver.

Podcasts

On one trip, ice covered the roads as our white-knuckled driver let out a yell. “Look at that car fly!” I turned my head just in time to see taillights leave the road into what we hoped was a soft pile of snow. We had no time to change lanes, brake and back-track. We all felt lousy. Most people thought the car was merely headed off the road onto an exit ramp. We never asked each other what we should have done. Those were the days of high fatality numbers on the highways, and drinking was a factor in most of them. We seem to have more alcohol-related wrecks on Whidbey roadways. We should have none. Yet we walk around with our hands in our pockets, whistling in the dark, hoping someone else will come forward with a solution. Gee. Vince Lombardi, beloved head coach of the Green Bay Packers, would think we are nothing but a bunch of gutless wonders. Are we ready for some football? I mean sober, rabble-rousing, good clean fun Super Bowl football? Piling on is not an offense if it’s trays of food followed by more trays of coffee well ahead of the wrap up. I bet the ghost of Lombardi never misses a trophy presentation. Vince has been designated inspirational coach to thousands of us over the years. Now about that designated driver. Let’s cure kids cancer Nancy Nielsen of Oak Harbor has had personal experience with how cancer affects a child and their family. “I remain hopeful research will come up with a cure,” she said on the phone last week, spreading the word about a luncheon, silent and dessert auction planned for Freeland Hall March 1 at noon to benefit the Ben Towne Foundation. Ben died in Seattle at age 3 from neuroblastoma. “Jeff and Carin Towne will talk about the progress of research and clinical studies supported by such fund-raisers and conducted at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research in Seattle.” Nielsen said. This is the third year she has organized the luncheon and auctions. Up for auction will be several quilts, Sounders tickets, and good deals at restaurants, galleries and florists. Tickets cost $15 and cover the luncheon. To get yours, call Nielsen at 675-2292 or email njnielsen@comcast.net.

Letters to the Editor Editor, The Oak Harbor Chamber has been issued - and has accepted - a challenge from the Parker, CO Chamber of Commerce on the outcome of the upcoming Super Bowl. We will be holding a 12th man rally for all Seahawks supporters at 2:00pm, Saturday, February 1 at the Oak Harbor High School football stadium. We will be collecting items from our business community to raffle off - all funds will benefit North Whidbey Help House.

Here is the catch - the losing team’s chamber will donate whatever funds it raises to the winning team’s chamber! The losing team’s chamber executive will also be forced to wear the winning team’s championship T-shirt. Parker, CO is about 50,000 people - their chamber has 700 members. Let’s show them what team spirit really is and knock their socks off! Our businesses know how to rally around the community, so let’s show them how it’s done! If you have an item or a gift certificate you’d be willing to donate for the raffle, please contact us at (360)675-3755. I’d love to set a fundraising goal of $1,000 - so please spread the word and let’s help stock the shelves at Help House.

WICA Theatre Series - City of Angels

The late 1940s was a time when the studios still reigned over Hollywood, the mob ruled the Sunset Strip, and crooked politicians and police brass ran Los Angeles. Set in the glamorous seductive Hollywood of 1948, City of Angels is an homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures. The musical weaves together two plots: the “real” world, played in full Technicolor, tells the story of Stine, a Hollywood screenwriter struggling to bring his story to life; and the “reel” world, played in black and white, where Stine’s characters literally spring to life. It’s part mystery, part romance, and filled with sidesplitting comedy. City of Angels is an adult-themed musical comedy.

The course, taught by knowledgeable club instructors, will provide training on how to be a successful amateur radio operator and to operate a shortwave radio transmitter safely and legally. The course will prepare students to take the federal radio exam offered regularly by volunteer examiners at monthly Island County radio club meetings. “Before you can get on the air, you need to have a federal license,” class instructor Ken Sousa said. “There is no requirement to learn Morse code any longer so becoming licensed is easier now for young or old. We will instruct students in what they need to know to take the exam and successfully set up their ham radio stations.” Radio hams throughout the U.S. communicate with other operators around the world via shortwave radio and assist with emergency responses to local and national man-made and natural disasters such as the recent floods in Colorado. The federal radio license authorizing use of a radio transmitter is effective for 10 years before free renewal. The cost of the course is $30 and includes all class materials and a license study manual. Registration is required to attend the two-day course. For more information, contact Sousa at (360)675-4867or email at n7axj@w7avm.org. [Submitted by Vince Bond]

Mike Nortier, told Dudley the Navy recognizes the benefits of partnering with the city on the WTTP and would like to continue discussions to reach a viable agreement. However, fiscal limitations and governing acquisition regulations restricted the Navy’s ability to make a commitment regarding the requested funds. Under those regulations, the Navy cannot make lump sum payments for new facilities related to the city’s basic infrastructure or systems unless authorized under specific legislation. Dudley acknowledged in his letter of December 19 that “we are certainly aware that your decision-making process, like ours, is built to insure accountability and fiscal restraint.” Nortier stressed that the Navy is still interested in participating in the project and wants to have further negotiations between base officials and the city to reach a mutually beneficial solution. “Nevertheless, we do not want to compromise the city’s treatment facility’s construction schedule or place undue risk on the City of Oak Harbor and its rate payers. We recognize and truly appreciate the strong partnership we have with the City of Oak Harbor,” Nortier said. “The relationship between NAS Whidbey Island and the City of Oak Harbor is recognized as a model relationship between a military base and the surrounding community.” Dudley noted that the City “appreciates Nortier’s respect for the City’s permit requirement to open a new facility by December 2017 and for the impacts on our resident and business rate payers.” The City Council’s decision on January 21, 2014 to authorize moving forward with a design that does not include flows from the Seaplane Base was not easy, but Dudley believes it was made “with the best interest of the larger community in mind and with no fear that this decision in any way erodes the strong and historic relationship between the City of Oak Harbor and NAS Whidbey Island.” Nortier said he appreciates the collaborative relationship NAS Whidbey Island continues to enjoy with the city. NAS Whidbey Island and the City of Oak Harbor remain committed to partnering to reach mutually beneficial solutions as the Whidbey Island community prepares for future growth of both the base and local community.

on trACk with Jim Freeman

Is it just me, or have others you know felt overly absorbed with Super Bowl hype, hyperbole, and hyperactivity? Were I a sponge, I might certainly be colored smash-mouthed blue and green by the national media machine. For a few days following the 49ers squeaker, I felt like I had been run over by a Sherman Tank during Sherman’s March through Georgia. That was just from post-victory angst. Thankfully, the Seahawks forthcoming victory is almost behind us. Our Hawks shall be forever memorialized in the sport’s history books and blogs as a team of Chips turned Champs. We are in the Super Bowl to win. Our two weeks of anticipatory analysis is albeit complete. I predict, and you read it here first, even if you got the paper last, many people will feel the right team won. Others will feel the wrong team won. Most folks will not really care because they are Yankee fans anyway and are only at the Super Bowl parties for the A-Rod flavored Doritos, known on the streets of Manhattan as A-RoDoritos. I am too thin to try SteroiDoritos. If I ate that stuff, my cheeks would look like Sally Field’s while flying, while my arms would continue to resemble Montgomery Clift in a Civil War movie. Yes, the bunnies and I are staying home this weekend to watch Russell Wilson work his magic. If there is not enough magic to watch, I will be pacing on the porch, watching the bunnies argue over who gets the next onion ring, fried in a steroidfree carrot sauce.

They were back on my 12th birthday when Dad drove us from Columbus, Ohio to Crosley Field for behind home plate, sort-of if you count the real high seats above home plate, seats. I remember Dad tiring in the 7th inning of the second game when he leaned over and asked me if it was okay if we left early to beat the traffic before the two-hour, two lane drive home. “Dad! It’s the Dodgers!” That was the last time Dad ever took me to a game. The guy in front of us was probably the happiest. He never had to hear me yell “Go Jackie” again. Which reminds me, we have an auction February 8 at the Nordic Lodge in Coupeville. Lots of neat stuff. The Big Red Event, to benefit Ryan’s House for Youth. Never heard of them? www.ryanshouseforyouth.org. Added to the mix of live items is a laser-autographed football by Seahawks Super Bowl Champ QB Russell Wilson, a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s digs in Phoenix, a tour of Hemingway’s house in Key West, plus the not-for-everyone tour of The Museum of Death in Hollywood. I did a wedding reception there once. The centerpieces were embalmed. Hope to see you at the fundraiser. If you want me to bid for you, just give me the last four digits of your social and a pint of sausage gravy. Having several pseudonyms, and some discarded bid numbers, we will handle the rest. Lonely Thoughts A friend called the other day to tell me that his message would be the last voice mail message he would ever leave me.

Locally operated. Worse, two of your planets chose 2013 to recycle some old karma. With those two busily taking out the garbage, and the three sleepers not doing their routine maintenance, who has been minding the body? That is too big a job for two planets, and your health has suffered as a result. Age 78 looks great. The key planets will be awake and radiant. The garbage appears to be out. Your health should return, ending your snit. And that should put the magic back in your M&M.

Chicken Little And the Astrologer

Dear Astrologer, My December horoscope as a Libra at a website I visited read, “You’re lucky in love, travel and publishing for about four weeks.”

Dear Astrologer, My life has always gone in 7s and double 7s. In general I have lived a wonderful life. I have always been healthy and full of energy. So when I turned 77 last April I declared that this was my magical and mystical year.

Oh, don’t I wish! December came and went with no hint of the promised luck. Men still don’t know I exist. The post office and the grocery store remain the limits of my travel. As for publishing, if you print this letter, that will be my big splash as an author. That counts for something, I suppose, even if it comes a month late.

By Wesley Hallock

As it turned out, my M&M year has been a trail of health challenges. Nothing life threatening, but very life altering and definitely annoying. I do not do ‘sick’ well and have acted like the bull— sometimes quiet and sometimes raging. Will I get my M&M back soon? Testy Taurus Born April 20, 1936, at 8:26 A.M. in Brooklyn, New York Dear Testy Taurus, All beware the perturbed Taurus! When aroused, this normally docile sign transforms into a rampaging pot roast on the hoof that can be the most fearsome creature in the zodiac. Small wonder that this year finds you in a snit. Each birthday represents a new roll of the planetary dice, and your 77th was definitely a bad throw. Your annual horoscope shows the problem. It is a planetary slumber party. You have one planet asleep by default and two others in their pajamas for the year. That makes three planets out of the lineup of seven not showing up for work.

Never mind the travel. Can it be that my promised love is also running late? Wanting a Man Born September 26, 1978, at 10:33 A.M. in Grand Rapids, Michigan Dear Wanting a Man, Luck wears many faces. Care to trade luck with the woman married for years to a traveling salesman? After discovering her beloved husband had a secret home, with another wife and children, in another state? No, I thought not. Thank your lucky stars for the man you didn’t get. But that does not answer your question. Your love is not running late. The universe is far too orderly to permit tardiness. The fact is, he is not yet due. The period April 7 to 21 finds Mercury opening the door for an encounter of the sort you long for. April 12 is my pick for the day the right man appears in that door. Nothing points to his being a salesman. CHICKEN LITTLE

RONALD NEIL THOMPSON Ronald Neil Thompson, died suddenly at his home in Oak Harbor on January 8, 2014 at the age of 55. He was born in San Diego and raised in Oak Harbor. Ron was very active in Scouting, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. He was also an honor student at Oak Harbor High School. Following high school, Ron attended the U.S. Naval Academy, graduating with distinction with a Bachelor’s degree in Systems Engineering. Following commissioning as an Ensign, he entered flight school at NAS Pensacola and Kingsville. Ron received his “Wings of Gold” in April 1982 and flew under the call sign, “ABE”. His first assignment was as an Instructor Pilot in Training Squadron TEN, Pensacola, training Naval Flight Officers. In 1983, he received orders to VA-128, NAS Whidbey Island, for training as a replacement Pilot for the A-6E Intruder. He went on to serve with VA-95 and the “Green Lizards” in the Indian Ocean and two tours on the USS Enterprise, where he served as the Personnel and Tactics Officer. CDR. Thompson returned to VA-128, VA-52, did a Western Deployment onboard the USS Carl Vinson and went “around the horn” aboard the USS Kitty Hawk. With the “Knightriders” he served alternately as Operations, Maintenance and Administrative Officer. In 1992, he returned to the “Golden Intruders” as Administrative and Operations Officer. CDR. Thompson received his first assignment away from flying in 1992 with his transfer to the Naval War College in Newport, RI. Receiving his Master’s Degree in National Securities and Strategic Studies, he preceded to the USS Abraham Lincoln and deployment to the Persian Gulf. Assigned as the Air Operations Officer, he also acted as the Assistant Extended Drydocking Selected Restricted Availability (EDRSA) Officer. During EDRSA, CDR. Thompson completed a $200 million overhaul of the Lincoln, her first, and meeting all milestones, came in on time and under budget. In 1998, Ron assumed duties as Operations Officer for NAS Whidbey Island. Responsible for all airfield operations, he also maintained oversight of OLF Coupeville, the Boardman, OR target complex and Search and Rescue Coordination of the UH-3H in the North Puget Sound area. CDR Thompson was awarded Sea Service Deployment Ribbon (3), Navy Expeditionary Medal, Expert Pistol Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Kuwait Liberation Medal (Kuwait), Meritorious Service Medal (2) and the Navy Achievement Medal (2). Ron Thompson was married to the former Susie Rowand, at the First United Methodist Church, Oak Harbor on September 6, 1980. They have one daughter Hope, who graduated from Western Washington University last June. He was preceded in death by his father Norman Ronald Thompson and his stepfather Don Tighe. Following retirement from the Navy on December 31, 2000, Ron began a new career as a pilot for United Airlines. He was initially assigned as a Flight Engineer on the 727-200 in Chicago. After just four months, Ron returned to the training center to become a First Officer on the 737-300/500 and was sent to the San Francisco domicile. After September 11, 2001, Ron and 591 United Pilots were furloughed. The winter of 2001-2002 was spent as a Lift Operator at Mt. Baker. Ron was the weekday King of Chair 7, spending 80 days on the mountain. Ron followed this low paying but highly enjoyable job, returning to his first love, flying, first with Mesa Airlines, then for Avenge in Afghanistan, and finally his current job with DynCorp International in Baghdad, Iraq.

Ron is survived by his wife Susie, daughter Hope, brothers Don and Will, sisters Susan Gonzales and Laura Wilkie, his mother Joyce Tighe, and numerous nieces and nephews. Ron was a lifelong member of the Naval academy and the Tailhook Association

A memorial service was held Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 11am at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church, 1253 NW 2nd Ave. Oak Harbor, WA 98277.  Remembrances can be made to the Pastor’s Emergency Fund at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church.

In lieu of flowers, Ron would be honored if you would make a donation to the Naval Academy, www.usna.com, or the Tail Hook Scholarship Fund, www.tailhook.net, or the Tailhook Association, 9696 Businesspark Ave, San Diego, CA 92131.

HUNSKOR Claude Howard Hunskor, 86, of Oak Harbor, WA, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on January 10, 2014.  He was born June 16, 1927 in Oak Harbor, WA to Carl and Hilda Hunskor.  He graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 1945.  Upon graduation he enlisted in the US Navy and served during WWII.  Following his brief time in the Navy, Claude entered Pacific Lutheran University where he played on the men’s basketball team and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Education.  Claude moved to Ketchikan, Alaska in 1955 where he taught high school math.  Claude was named head basketball coach of the Ketchikan High School Kings in 1957.  He led his team to 5 state championships earning the nickname “the silver fox of Tongas Narrows” and became one of the winningest high school basketball coaches in Alaska state history.  It was at Ketchikan High School where he met a young English teacher named Nancy Jo Swank.  Claude and Nancy married in 1965 and their son Mark Hayden was born three years later.  The family moved back home to Oak Harbor in 1970 where Claude built a home on his beloved Strawberry Point right next door to his parents.  Claude had a strong love of the sea and while in Ketchikan, realized his dream of owning his own fishing boat.  In 1963, the gillnetter, “Lori Maureen”, was built in Prince Rupert, Canada.  Claude went on to fish for salmon in SE Alaska for the next 30 years.  He was joined on the Lori Maureen every summer by his son, Mark, where they picked countless thousands of salmon out of their net off Foggy Point. Claude lost his wife, Nancy, to cancer in 1989 and retired from fishing in 1993.  In his retirement he enjoyed digging for clams, crabbing, and walking the beach in front of his house.  He also enjoyed daily visits with his siblings, Marion and Helen, who lived just up the hill.  Claude traveled to a variety of places in his life but the most memorable for him was a three week trip to Norway in 1999 with his son, Mark, to experience their family heritage.  Claude took great pride in his family and was overjoyed at the arrival of his first grandchild, Hayden Walter in 2001.  His granddaughter, Rose Nancy, was born shortly after and they were the apple of his eye.  Through it all, the primary influence and guiding light in Claude’s life was his relationship with Christ.  He was a charter member of Oak Harbor Lutheran Church and found great comfort in his faith and devotion to God. Claude will be remembered for his love of lutefisk, his competitive spirit, his old fishing stories, and his unceasing generosity.  He was preceded in death by his brother Hans, father Carl, mother Hilda, and brother Marion.  He is survived by his son Mark, daughter-in-law Angele, grandchildren Hayden and Rose, and sister Helen Brandt. 

REV. RICHARD H. PORRITT, SR. Richard Harley “Dick” Porritt, Sr., age 92, was called home to his Lord and Savior on January 17, 2014 at Swedish Hospital Rehab Center, Seattle, following a brief illness. He was born March 28, 1921 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island to George and Marion Porritt. Richard completed his secondary education in Providence, Rhode Island and went on to complete his A.B.

He participated in several Pacific Island invasions. He was released from active duty in 1946, but remained in the Reserves until his resignation in 1954. Richard was married to the love of his life, Jean Catherine Wadsten on September 23, 1944 at Treasure Island Naval Station, San Francisco. In 1946, Richard worked as an accountant for Gilbert Associates in Reading, PA and from 1947 to 1950, served as an auditor for the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in New York City.

Ten years later, he accepted a call to St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Torrington, Connecticut. In 1985, 22 years later, Richard retired from the ministry and he and Jean moved permanently to Oak Harbor. Richard enjoyed playing the piano and organ, foreign languages, camping and bowling.

Joyce Anne Parmley Joyce Anne Parmley passed away at her son’s home in Snohomish on January 18, 2014. She was born Clara Roberta Mataresi on January 24, 1926 to Italian immigrants Mario and Ida Mataresi. Upon her mother’s death in 1929, she and her sisters were placed in an orphanage and her newborn brother was adopted immediately. April 16, 1936, Joyce was adopted by Anne Bateman of Medford, Oregon, and her name was changed to Joyce Anne Bateman. She was raised in Medford and was a member of the Methodist Church. Joyce attended Taylor University in Indiana and Willamette University in Oregon studying music. There was a ninth grade class prediction for Joyce, that she would be a “Blues singer at the Coconut Grove”. Music was always a very important part of Joyce’s life. October 19, 1947 she married Lewis Newell Parmley in Hernando, Mississippi. As a Navy wife she began the challenge of having and raising children all over the world. Her son Terry was born in Tennessee, daughter Cindy in Virginia, son David in Morocco, son Robert in Tennessee and son John in Okinawa. After stays in Oak Harbor and Texas she returned in 1963 to Oak Harbor. In 1969 she and her husband divorced and Joyce chose to make Oak Harbor her home. The Seaplane Base Chapel was her first church in Oak Harbor. She began attending the First United Methodist Church during a time the congregation met in the Oak Harbor Movie Theatre. (While the church was being rebuilt after a fire destroyed the existing church.) After becoming a member of the First United Methodist Church in 1972 she spent the next 38 years being an active member of the choir and numerous other church ministries. She had a special love for singing. She retired in 1993 after working 22 years in various civil service departments of the Defense Logistics Agency at NAS Whidbey. Joyce was preceded in death by her brother John Barkus, formerly of Marion County, Oregon and her daughter Cindy Parmley, formerly of Dallas, Oregon. She is survived by her sisters Helen Frace of Portland, Oregon and Beatrice Tucci of Portland, Oregon, her sons Terry Parmley of Everett, WA, Dave Parmley of Seattle, WA, Robert & Brenda Parmley of Anacortes, WA and John and Joanne Parmley (daughter of Margaret & Gene Loper of Oak Harbor) of Snohomish, WA. Joyce also has ten grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Joyce stayed active throughout her retirement; traveling to the Oregon Coast and making trips to England and the Holy Land, and working with and for her church family. Though her last years were spent fighting Parkinson’s at her son John’s home in Snohomish, her heart was always in Oak Harbor. Memorial services for Joyce Parmley will be held at the First United Methodist Church, Oak Harbor on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 1:00pm with Pastor Dave Johnson officiating. Friends and family are encouraged to share memories and condolences utilizing the Book of Memories hosted by Wallin Funeral Home at www.wallinfuneralhome.com.

Some remarks from readers are beyond reproach, but many are on approach, even at the OLF Field.

I hit *82 on the phone before I called him back so I could disengage my identity.

“I get confused. Reading Freeman is confusing enough, but two weeks ago, I started my Whidbey Weekly experience reading Eileen, as I always do, but I ended up with an astrologer who raised chickens. At least it made more sense than Freeman.”

Sort of a reverse Edward Snowden, with an Edward Muskie twist. After leaving him a voice mail message, I was going to text him as well. However, the numbers on my senior citizen endorsed Jittberbug cell phone are so large there is no room for the letters. I can only type 7734 so many times. Funny Bunny Farm The other day I was watching my four wild bunnies eat their breakfast, wondering when ketchup was first invented. I wanted to bring that bit of trivia up when I next saw Minnie Dexter in the Maple Ridge dining room. Minnie monitors the ketchup use at Maple Ridge, as part of a homeland security, undercover operation for the Bonaventure chain. I can say this in my column because it is unlikely anyone from the government can read print this small. When Minnie first starting using ketchup, the labels on the bottles were printed right side up. People back in Minnie’s day banged the bottom of the ketchup bottle to get the ketchup to come out at the top. Nowadays, ketchup comes upside down, with an upside down label and an upside down cap. Then the ketchup people expect us to hit the top of the bottle, so the ketchup will come out the bottom.

We wanted to share one of the more complimentary responses, so I was able to quote the above without his permission. Font for You Speaking of font size, let me know if you would like me to write less each week. My output sometimes causes the size of the letters to diminish, so that all available sarcasm can be included. In addition, being I am the only south-end columnist, I am paid by the word. The more words, the smaller the type. The smaller the type, the bigger the paycheck. One week, I made enough money to drive up to Oak Harbor to take the office staff to Dollar Tree for lunch. Nothing like a round of baby kosher dills from India to get a party started. I am just kidding. We did not have lunch at Dollar Tree. We went to the old Kow Korner parking lot on Midway, and imagined double cheeseburger Wednesdays. Smell the grease. See the bolo ties. Tip your cowboy hat.

No wonder Minnie is busy.

Dear Astrologer, Once a month, regular as clock work throughout my adult life, I hit a few days I call my wild spot. I never know what is going to happen on those days. I might feel bubbly and euphoric. I might cry over nothing at all. Crazy things might happen to set if off, like I run into a friend I haven’t seen in ten years and forget to come home until the wee hours. I blamed this craziness on hormones and thought when I reached menopause it would stop. Guess what, that milestone is a year behind me and I’m still hitting the wild spot. Any ideas about what causes this? Born to be Wild Born August 8, 1961, at 1:20 P.M. in Eureka, California Dear Born to be Wild, Every decade produces a few like you. The sun traces a predictable path across the sky. The moon traces a separate path. Where the two paths meet is a speed bump. There is where we reap the consequences of past actions. Some call it karma. It is also your wild spot. Every 29 days the moon in its endless circuit of the sky hits your wild spot. You know the result. From out of the blue comes something unexpected. Today’s parking ticket? It’s from your former life as a bad boy Aborigine. Your boomerang comes back to hit you in the head. Everybody’s birth chart has a wild spot. What distinguishes you from the hair in a bun librarian? The two planets double parked on your wild spot, Uranus and Sun. Sun as the lord of your rising sign Leo tells how you take life’s highway. With Uranus, it says the fast lane isn’t fast enough. You make your own lane on the dirt. Moon once a month decides when you do it. Wild.

Dear Astrologer, With my unemployment checks about to run out and my savings dwindling, I’m looking back and wondering where I went wrong. For years I did

Thank you Kow Korner. Quote of the Month Harry Balzer, Chief Industry Analyst for NPD Group, a team of statisticians who monitor eating trends, said in an interview with Nanci Hellmich of USA Today last week that “my personal observation is the Super Bowl is the grand end of the eating season in America, which begins on Halloween.” Go Hawks! Eat on!

my best in following the principles of the book, Think and Grow Rich. I grew poor, instead. Later I adopted a wealth program based on the movie, “The Secret,” but did no better. Mediocrity or worse seems to be my lot in life. Can you tell me why? Is there way to change it? Slow Rat Born December 24, 1972, at 3:37 A.M. in Kingman, Arizona Dear Slow Rat, The reasons for a poor showing in the rat race are not what people think. They are not even what most astrologers think. The planets live by the Arnold Schwarzenegger formula for success: 1) Move to America 2) Work your butt off 3) Marry a Kennedy. Said another way, your zip code is all important, and after that, WHAT you know is less important to success than WHO you know. To become an actor your zip had better be Hollywood, 90028, not Graz, Austria, and your friends should be agents, directors and producers. The zodiac has its own zip codes, and your planets, Slow Rat, own the wrong houses and get their mail in all the wrong places for the kind of success you want. There is also the planetary equivalent of marrying a Kennedy, and your planets are not well mated. Yours is not a wealth producing astrology chart. The planets are a map of the subconscious, and the subconscious can be changed. Napoleon Hill addressed such changes in Think and Grow Rich, but in that regard the book is vastly out of date. I recommend Dr. Bruce Lipton and his book, The Biology of Belief. It’s the intellectual equivalent of moving to America.

Nine out of ten people can’t answer the question, “Are your sleepless nights sleepless because the sky is falling, or because Saturn is doing the Watusi with your Moon, again?” Don’t be one of them. Send your questions, along with your date, TIME and place of birth (as listed on your birth certificate) to Wesley at planetbiz4u2@ gmail.com. It’s fun and it’s free. You’ll also sleep better.
