A tragic account from 101 years ago

Writer's Note: This story combines fact and fiction. There really was a train accident on July 31, 1909, two miles northwest of Coeur d'Alene, and the motorman of train No. 20 really was James Delaney. Sixteen people were killed — 12 on site and four died later at the hospital — and more than 100 others were injured. Those are facts, but the dialogue and other named characters are fiction.

Here's where Obama is failing us

In response to a recent letter from Gary Edwards, the concerns of our citizens can be addressed without sarcastic patronizing. Our President and Congress may not be traitorous, but a majority of Americans believe many actions are illegal, immoral, unethical and/or unconstitutional and that the President represents the U.S. as militarily weak, showing a lack of respect for key allies (Great Britain, Israel). Challenging the actions of our elected officials is a right and responsibility.

PRAIRIE: Lamenting a lost treasure

As a young man seeking adventure and distant places, I arrived in this area 60 years ago.

Great expectations

Awakening Remarks

I hit a major milestone the other night; I went to my 10-year high school reunion. High school was a great time for me. I loved who I was, the people I was with and the things I got to do. The memories are great, but that experience comes with the baggage of expectation. Expectations are far too often the molds in which we try to shove life. In order to make life fit the molds we fashion, we cut out the truly beautiful, unique and sovereign experiences that give life its meaning. In order not to ruin the adventure that comes with the spontaneity that life hands me, and to not set myself up for certain disappointment, I make a conscious effort not to bring expectations to my life experiences.

Is there a doctor in the house?

The Linotype

Many "professionals" in the Inland Empire are hanging shingles listing questionable credentials. My own credentials: I hold a Ph.D. (doctor of philosophy) in English from Northern Illinois University, a fully accredited university. I took lots of coursework, passed difficult examinations, learned to read two languages (actually four, but only two for the doctorate) and wrote a 315 page dissertation which I defended in front of a flock of graduate faculty and students. I was supervised by a professor whose doctorate was from Columbia, a director of graduate studies (Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania), the Dean of Arts and Sciences (Ph.D., University of Chicago), a graduate school dean, and many others. My dissertation was "published" by University Microfilms and every once in a while someone pays to read and maybe even quote it. Obtaining the doctorate was a long, demanding and expensive process; I began college in 1960 and finished in 1971. Even yet, my doctorate did not impress a number of my colleagues who studied at much more prestigious institutions. But it did get me into the career I wanted, college teaching, and even today, along with a buck and a half, will get me a cup of coffee.

Into the belly of the beast

On Thursday, other members of the media and myself were given the rare opportunity to fly aboard a KC-135R Stratotanker in Spokane tasked with the mission to refuel the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds en route to Fairchild Air Force Base. As we strapped into the nylon mesh seating, crew members moved about the cramped fuselage with a sense of purpose and calm composure prior to the precise operation about to be undertaken. With close communication between the pilot, co-pilot, and boom operator, over the deafening roar of the jet's engines, the KC-135R's crew delivered the necessary fuel to allow the red, white and blue adorned F-16s to carry on to their final destination. The Thunderbirds, executing the aerial refueling maneuvers with grace and efficiency, were filled up in a matter of minutes flying at 30,000 feet over Washington and proceeded to perform reconnaissance exercises in the area. The Thunderbirds, along with numerous other planes will be in action on Saturday and Sunday's Skyfest 2010 at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane. After a rocky, turbulent approach to the runway, the KC-135R finally came to a halt on the hot tarmac. Pilot Maj. Craig Gural bid farewell to the 20 photographers, videographers and reporters aboard the plane and began to debrief with his three-man crew. Another successful mission in the books.

The hero of this story is Christopher John Francis Boone, a fifteen-year-old boy who has all the world's countries and capitols memorized, knows every prime number up to 7,057 and can understand the feelings and thoughts of animals but not of others people. Christopher has autism, a mental disability that makes it very hard and sometimes impossible to learn certain things like manners or how to talk or certain academic skills. In his search for the killer, he accidentally stumbles upon a family issue that was hidden from him with lies.

Spot the block - teaching children to read labels

We all know that eating with your children provides great opportunities to discuss and model healthy eating behaviors. But so can grocery shopping. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has developed a program called "Spot the Block" that encourages parents to help their children establish good eating habits by reading the Nutrition Facts Label. It's a good idea to start teaching children about making healthy choices when they're young. The Spot the Block program targets "tweens", children ages 9-13. The Cartoon Network is a co- sponsor of Spot the Block and has some of its favorite characters offering tips, quizzes, and animated spots at an interactive website created just for tweens (http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/promos/201004_fda/htmlsite/index.html).

Address the root of the pain for lasting relief

We as humans are notorious for working through and around pain, to ensure our daily lives are not affected. However, when a body part is injured, avoiding stress on that area will often result in complications in other parts of the body. For example, it is not uncommon for people experiencing hip pain to develop a limp or a change in walking pattern. Such compensations may offer some relief to the injured area, but oftentimes result in sore or injured muscles in the knee and back areas.

One of the most confusing and at times confounding trends in the wine industry the last several years is the foundering of Syrah sales. Syrah is the principal red grape from the Rhone Valley in France as well as the Chateauneuf du Pape A.O.C. Chateauneuf du Pape translates to "New Castle of the Pope" from when the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church moved the Papacy to Avignon near Lyon, in the Rhone Valley. In addition, the grape does great in nearby Washington state and many parts of California, and when customers try it they will almost always buy a bottle. However, when it just comes to folks walking into the shop, no one seems to care.

Nursing home care paid by Medicaid

Approximately 50 percent of nursing home residents have their costs paid by Medicaid. As noted in my previous article, Medicaid is a program designed to provide medical care for the poor. It is therefore a "means tested" benefit, unlike Medicare which is an entitlement program based upon age. However, it is obvious that 50 percent of Americans cannot be considered poor. How, then, does Medicaid end up paying for the nursing home costs of roughly one half of Americans requiring nursing home care? The simple answer is that middle class Americans become eligible for Medicaid by spending or giving away their assets until they are able to meet the poverty level criteria for Medicaid. The history of how this "spend down" process has evolved is not so simple, and neither are the present rules which govern Medicaid eligibility.

Creamy, smooth, rich and exotic - the silky green flesh of the avocado is the stuff sweet summer dreams are made of, and it's almost as versatile as it is delicious.

They're native to tropical regions between Mexico and South America, but the seeds of this unusual fruit's popularity have sprouted worldwide - to Indonesia, Vietnam, India, the Philippines and Australia. The good news for those of us who love to buy our bounty as locally as possible is that the avocado is also a well-established crop here in the U.S., having thrived in California since its introduction in the 19th century.

Gavin Young, in the June 25 edition of The Press, wrote to object to Creationism being taught in our schools. His well-reasoned arguments were against the inclusion of religious teaching in public schools and the well-worn "separation of church and state" issues. In the reality of today's increasingly secular public school system his viewpoints will prevail no matter what many of us wish were the case.

We observed him watching the public from the edge of his retaining wall for nearly an hour. He was apparently caring for his roses. We all watched in amazement as he nearly fell off his retaining wall watching the swimmers and public folks enjoy Sanders Beach. He appeared to be concerned that someone might touch his property which has a metal guard railing to keep those darn citizens out. We would suggest that he attach a rope or cable to his waist and then to an anchor of some sort.

Gone fishing... for omega-3s

Need a new excuse to go fishing? How about this -it's part of your fitness plan to get more physical activity and Omega-3's. Idaho freshwater fish are not only a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals, but the good kind of fat as well. Omega-3 fatty acids are derived from fish and fish oils - consisting of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), plus eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Most of the interest in Omega-3's has been due to their effects on lowering blood cholesterol, but there are other equally important benefits of DHA for the brain, including memory, intelligence and even eye sight.

The garden bounty

Food for Thought

While sitting on a lichen-covered rock bench in my vegetable garden I notice a large orange-breasted robin tugging at a worm. The bird releases the worm, cocks her head sideways and leaps into my strawberry patch. The war is on. "Oh no you don't," I scold the bird as I grab my garden hose. The robin takes flight with a strawberry in its mouth as the stream of water from the hose hits the berry bed. Watering, weeding and mulching earn me the right to eat my garden's bounty. The robin has not earned this reward and I will not give in to her thievery.

Misfits through the millennia have stood up in the name of democracy and human rights to such self styled tyrannical leaders in history as George William Frederick, Napoleon Bonaparte, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Emperor Hirohito, and Adolph Hitler.  Misfits have stepped forward when most continued to quake in their boots or actively supported tyranny because of new gained wealth and power.  Most of America’s finest misfits looked oppression in the face and said enough is enough with little or no thought of the consequences that faced them.
