2 THE RIVER JULY 30, 2010
Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Then And Now:

Recreation Pier At Fowler Street
by Gerri Reaves
In November 1911, some citizens despaired that Fort Myers
.9 4 had no tourist attractions to advertise.
City Councilman Hawie E. Heitman and Capt. WF Gwynne
sought to remedy that situation with a modest proposal: They
started a movement to build Fort Myers' first public pier extend-
ing into the Caloosahatchee River at the foot of Fowler Street.
After all, at that time there were no public parks, recreation
centers or even good roads to lure visitors. It was time to recog-
nize the town's changing identity from a cow town into a grow-
ing progressive city and to market the riverfront to advantage.
Woven into Heitman's argument for a public pier was a
perennial issue: river access for all citizens, regardless of income or property owner-
Building a recreation pier from which to enjoy the Caloosahatchee River was the
least the town could do, those early pier proponents felt.
On the other hand, some opponents contested that the public amenity would create
a nuisance for nearby residents. Other citizens argued that projects such as an emer-
gency hospital outweighed the need for public amenities such as piers.
Heitman and Gwynne raised $2,250 by public subscription, and they appealed to
the city council both for both permission to build the pier and for a contribution of
The lively debate continued until February 1912, when the council donated the
$1,000 and awarded WP Henley the contract. As his contribution to the project, John
M. Dean filled in the approach to the recreation pier.

The view from the footprint of the city pier has changed drastically from that of almost a

But pledged subscriptions only trickled in, so the project was not com-
pleted until more than a year later.
The official opening for Fort Myers' first man-made tourist attraction took
place on April 11, 1913, complete with a concert by the Fort Myers Military
The historic photo indicates what a good investment the pier was, com-
plete with comfortable benches, plenty of shelter from downpours or blazing
sun, and convenient docking for a pleasure boat.
As we all now know, Fort Myers went on to develop tourist attractions
galore, and eventually, the route forged by the recreation pier developed into
the first Edison Bridge in 1930 and later the south-bound span of the second
one built in the 1980s.
The next time you approach the seawall on the Edison Bridge, remember
that you're traveling on the footprint of Fort Myers' first public pier.
Then walk a few blocks to the Southwest Florida Museum of History at
2031 Jackson Street, where you can learn more about the city's first efforts
to create public amenities.
Don't miss Tutankhamun: Wonderful Things from the Pharaoh's Tomb,
extended to August 15.
For information, call 321-7430 or go to swflmuseumofhiston).com. The
museum's hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and noon
to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Be sure to visit another valuable historical resource, the Southwest Florida
Historical Society, located at 10091 McGregor Boulevard. Call 939-4044 or
drop by on Wednesday or Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon.

On Insurance
Submitted by Diane E. Connell
Chris Heidrick, owner of Heidrick
and Company, a Sanibel-based
insurance company, was the guest
speaker at the Gateway to the Islands
Kiwanis Club's July 20 meeting.
Heidrick provided members with an
overview of insurance basics. Although
the industry is often perceived negatively
by the public, it is a necessary element of
every risk management plan. Insurance
is defined as the equitable transfer of the
risk of a loss, from one entity to another,
in exchange for payment. The transaction
involves the insured assuming a guaran-
teed and known relatively small loss in
the form of a premium to the insurer,
in exchange for the insurer's promise to
compensate (indemnify) the insured in the
case of a loss. The insurer leverage its
risk by pooling a large number of insured
together. Two-thirds of every premium
dollar is allocated to paying losses and
the remaining one-third pays the insurer's
expenses. Revenues are based on the
insurers return on investment.
Heidrick went on to describe liability
insurance as legal defense coverage. In
terms of auto insurance, Florida is tied
with Louisiana as requiring the lowest
bodily injury liability limits in the country.
That is why Heidrick recommends self-
insuring by paying a higher deductible.

e Children's Advocacy Center
of Southwest Florida (CAC) has
been chosen under the Violence

assessments, group sessions, and individ-
ual/family therapy. TRUE Girls, founded
in 2005, has provided treatment to ado-
lescent girls, ages 12 to 17, with a history
of trauma.
"This funding will increase our capaci-
ty to provide individual and family therapy

might otherwise go without treatment,
commented Jill Turner, Chief Executive
Officer of CAC. "The grant will help
improve the lives of many girls and their
families in our area.

Optimists Award College Scholarship
The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club awarded a college scholarship to recently
graduated high school senior Lauren Davis of Fort Myers. Lauren was selected

Snapper Kicking
Off At The Passes
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
he week
strong south-
east winds most
days and even a
.m., tropical storm. This
weather pattern
- kept most anglers
in port and there
were very few
boats out. Even with the rough condi-
tions the big mid-morning high tides
all week were just too much for me to
resist. The days I did manage to make
it out and brave the rough conditions I
found some of the best redfishing action
I have been on in weeks.
Staying close to home to avoid the
rough conditions of the open sound, I
found good redfish action on just about
every mangrove shoreline and oyster
bar I fished. The last two hours of the
incoming tide were on fire with 10-plus
redfish days. Mangrove keys around the

powerlines on both sides of the
sound all held hungry reds. The
?sn ood tin awi hh ng
gork ndp k ng cast e
to the bushes caught redfish up
to 31 inches.
Now is the time to start fish-
ing the passes for mangrove
snapper. Captive and Boca
Grande passes are usually the
best bet for easy limits of man-
grove snapper. With the rough
conditions I did not make it up
to the passes but have heard
good reports from a few anglers
who did.
With all our fish inning
behind about a month this
year because of the cold win-
ter, mangrove snapper fishing
should really be starting to kick
off. These fish will hold in the
passes for the next few months
and make for easy action on the
biggest snappers of the year.
Look for the bigger schools
to hold on the ledges, drop-offs
and heavier stmeture in the
passes. Drift fishing works best;
just mark where you catch fish
on the GPS and drift it again

Pee Anesno im iha vriz refs

- and again. Live baits including small pin-
fish, big shrimp or live shiners work best.
Use enough lead to make it to the bot-
tom; this will depend on how fast the tide
is moving and could be anything from a
single splitshot to a 3/4-oz. egg sinker.
Rig with light 15# or 20# fluorocarbon
leader and a 1/0 light wire circle hook
for more bites. These fish can be really
- leader-shy so the lighter the better.

Shark action remains hot with black-
tips thick all over the sound. Deeper
water from six to 10 feet has held the
largest numbers of these fast-running, fun
to catch fish. Live pinfish and threadfins
floated a few feet under a bobber mean
non-stop action. Watching a pack of
sharks, often five or six at a time, come
up around the baits before moving in for
the kill is just cool to see.
The blacktips are averaging around
three feet and on light tackle are a blast.
Use circle hooks if you want to keep
them hooked up. Look for the schools of
threadfins in the middle sound to hold lots
of sharks. When I have been waiting for
the tide to be right to go fishing for red-
fish or snook, this has been a sure bet.

Katie Kalhorn of Rockville, Maryland and Mariela Hutchins of White Bear
Lake, Minnesota have a few things in common. They recently visited Sanibel'
ove collecting shells, entered The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Store's col-
oring contest, and won first place in their respective age divisions.
In July, Mariela's family made their first trip to Sanibel. As a child, Mariela's dad
spent time on Sanibel every summer so it's not surprising that Sanibel made it to the
top of the list as he and his family explored potential vacation destinations.
Mariela is nine years old and in the fall she will be entering the 4th grade at OH
Anderson Elementary in Natomedi, Minnesota. "I like coming to Sanibel because of
the manatee, the beaches and collecting shells," said Katie. "I found a lot of shells this
year like fighting conch and lightning whelk but my very favorite is the alphabet cone.
Other than finding shells, my favorite activity was taking a boat trip to Cayo Costa,,
she added. "I'm lucky because my aunt has a house on Captiva so we can stay with
erKatie Kalhorn, her two brothers and her parents made their third trek to Sanibel in
July, staying for two weeks. As a child her dad visited Sanibel every summer.
Katie attends St. Elizabeth Elementary School. "When we visit Sanibel I like to go
shopping, walk on the beach, and collect shells. My favorite shell is the crown conch. I
found lots of them this year. I like to decorate my room with shells," Katie said. While
visiting Sanibel this year Katie attended the shell museum's Cartoon Camp led by car-
toTist Dave Horton. "I had so much fun drawing shells and other sea creatures," she
Katie's Mom, Kay, shares her daughter's sentiment about their vacation destina-
tion. "Most of all I come to Sanibel to relax. Katie and I enjoy shopping and collecting
shells. My husband and the boys are more into fishing.
In recognition of their winning art work, Katie and Mariela will receive mermaid
books donated by the museum store.#

It is most essential for the turtle to
have a defense for their inner organs.
Turtles can lose major shards from their
carapace and still recover as long as they
are protected in key areas.
CROW staff put a flexible splint
known as Vet-Light on the cooter's shell
to keep all the pieces joined together.
Ideally they would like to clean the
wounds on a regular basis, but they will
need to leave the area alone, for the most
part, so they do not disturb the healing
process of the fractures.

The shell of
the turtle is
adequate pro-
tection in the wild,
but it was not made
to resist automo-
biles. Turtles who
have been struck
by cars continue to
be among the most
frequent patients
seen at CROW, and the wildlife hospital
urges the public to be cautious drivers
and watch out for these reptiles as they
cross the road.
On July 20 Karla Kaufman rescued a
peninsula cooter (a water turtle) hit by a
car in East Fort Myers in the early eve-
ning. She noticed the animal on Route
80, and turned around to get her.
The turtle seemed so badly injured that
she didn't think she would live, but she
kept the turtle overnight. "My husband
and I are big animal lovers," she said.
The next day she dropped off the
cooter at Miracle Mile.
The cooter came into CROW with sig-
nificant trauma. "There was a triangular
piece of shell over her left hip that was
so unstable, as was a piece over her tail,"
said CROW Veterinarian Dr.
Amber McNamara. "She had
a bad wound over her right
rear leg, and there was a lot
of blood on her chin and
CROW staff gave her
several kinds of pain medica-
tion and let her rest quietly.
During the first 72 hours
they cleaned out all the
debris from her wounds
and worked on putting back
together the jigsaw puzzle of
her shell.
"There's a window of
time when you can get
the pieces to fit and knit
together," said Dr. Amber.
"A lot depends on where the
fractures are.

Family Combined Service
To Sanibel With Four Generations
In The U.S. Military
by Mike Gillespie, Vice President, committee of the Islands
Last week we report-
ed on the extraordi-
nary military service
record of Col. Edwin
Reed and his wife Jean.
Reed was a Marine
fighter pilot who served
in WWII, Korea, and
Vietnam. He also later
became the helicopter
pilot of Marine One
for President John F.
Jean was a Navy flight
nurse who met Ed in
Japan in 1951 during the
Korean War. Soon after
they got married in Hawaii
and fell in love with it.
But for their years after
the service, they picked -.
Sanibel over Hawaii and
raised their family here. 4
We also told you last
week how Ed Reed had Ed and Jean Reed on Sanibel, 1992
been part of the 1974
effort to incorporate
Sanibel and how he had
joined the Committee of
the Islands and became its
chairman in the organiza-
tion's second year, 1976.
What we have discov-
ered since then is that this
family's roots in semice to '
their country go back four
I learned this as I was
speaking to Nori Ann '
Reed about last week's '
story. Nori Ann, who lives
today on Sanibel, is the
daughter of Ed and Jean
Reed, and is one of the
long line of Reeds and
Hays who have served
their country in the active
military. Her mother, 1985: Ed, Navy Pilot son Rob, and future Navy Pilot grand-
age 86, also resides on son Matt
Sanibel. Her father Ed
passed away in 1994, from complications related to the effects of Agent Orange that
he had been exposed to in Vietnam.
Nori Ann is a retired Navy captain whose career included service as Commander of
Logistics Forces, Naval Central Command, from 2003 to 2005. Among other respon-
sibilities in this command, she oversaw the Navy's efforts to supply American forces
with fuel, food, mail, personnel, bombs and ammunition during the war in Iraq.
Service Began In WWI
I met with Nori Ann again this week to learn more about her family. She told me
that the Reed family's military service began with her mother's father, Lorin Hay, who
served in the Navy from 1914 to 1918. He was a "coaler," who fed the coal-fired
boilers that powered the USS Leviathan. Subsequent generations, Nori Ann told us,
followed her grandfather's service in the family tradition.
Nori Ann's mother, Jean, joined the Navy in 1944 and served to 1953. She had
eventually qualified as a Navy flight nurse and would tend to sick and wounded troops,
often on board the very planes that were being used to pick them up.
Jean's brothers also served in the Navy. Lorin became a pilot in the Pacific during
WWII and his younger brother, James, was a submarine Captain in the 1970's.
Edwin Reed had joined the Marines in 1942 and served until 1973. During his
time in WWII, he qualified to fly virtually every plane in the Marine inventor, and flew
combat missions in the Pacific. He also flew transports and fighter planes in Korea and
helicopters in Vietnam, for everything from transport to medevac missions to attack
helicopters. He piloted presidential Marine One helicopter from 1961-1963.

Ed and Jean with future Navy men Matt, Bryan, and Greg Reed
Robert Reed, Nori
Ann's brother, gradu-
ated from the US Naval
Academy and served in
the Navy from 1971 to
1981. He flew the carrier-
based, S-3 anti-submarine
aircraft, and now flies
747s as a commercial
pilot for Delta.
Nori Ann, who was the
next in line chronologi-
cally, sewed in the Navy
from 1978 to 2008. .
She was commissioned '
as an Ensign at Officer
Candidate School in .
Newport, RI, and was
sworn in by her father. .
She went on to attain the

Navy Flight Nurse Jean Reed (right) with wounded troops during Korean War, on Midway
Island, 1951
rank of captain and served as the captain of three different ships. As she puts it, "I
was in the family business.
Heading Home From Afghanistan
Matthew Reed, Robert's son (and Nori Ann's nephew), followed his father at
Annapolis and has served in the Navy from 2003 to the present. As this article went
to press, he was on board a US aircraft carrier taking him back to the states from
a deployment to Afghanistan, where he flew combat missions in an F/A-18 fighter
bomber/attack aircraft.
Robert's other two sons are also in the family business. Byan is an NROTC
midshipman at the University of San Diego, and Greg is a midshipman at the US
Merchant Marine Academy in King's Point, New York.
We asked Nori Ann about her father's involvement in the Sanibel community,
after they moved here in 1972. As reported last week, he had joined the Committee
of the Islands to help preserve the gains that had been achieved in 1974, when the
island won the status of an independently governed city within Lee County. Colonel
Reed had close contact in those days with the Lee County commissioners, since he
had become manager of the county airport, Page Field, which was the primary airport
sewing the Fort Myers area. He was concerned about the way the county was plan-
ning major developments on Sanibel as a source of greater and greater county tax
Speaking Out For Sanibel
Nori Ann told us it was a measure of her father's love for the island that he rose
above the military traditions of a lifetime to speak out against these plans. In the mili-
tay, she said, you learn not to speak of your political feelings or the decisions and
actions of the civilian government. Despite this, her father felt so strongly about the
threat of overdevelopment to the island he had come to love that he became active
with the Committee of the Islands in efforts to protect Sanibel against such threats.
In 1942, Edwin Reed and his high school basketball teammates had gone as a
group to the local recruiting station to enlist in the Marines. Nori Ann tells us they
were all west Texas farm boys who had the attitude of "whatever needs doin', they'll
do it."
That attitude seems to have sumived through four generations of the Reed family.
And it showed up again here on Sanibel, when Ed Reed joined the effort to help
protect this island's unique and natural characteristics.
We think he would be pleased with the results.

Helpless in her hospital bed, Salander
is stalked, but sumives to face a trial that
throbs with courtroom drama. Also on
the loose is a genetic freak of monstrous
physique who can feel no pain even
when his feet are nailed to the floor with

The author writes from the heart, not
from a formula... Larsson clearly loved
his brave misfit Lisbeth. And so will you,
according to USA Today.
Unfortunately, Larsson died suddenly
in 2004 Just after delivering the manu-
scripts for his trilogy to the publisher. He
had received death threats, but all the
sources I have read attribute his death to
a heart attack.
Larsson does have the last word about
his books from the voice of his hero,
Blomkvist, who explains after Salander's
trial, "...when it comes down to it, this
story is not primarily about spies and
secret government agencies; it's about
violence against women, and the men
who enable it."

Skin Cancer Claims The Life Of Kaye
Cowher, A Gifted Athlete And Wife
Of Former Pittsburgh Steelers Coach
by Ed Frank
Here in the sun-blessed, searing heat of Southwest
Florida, we have never combined a medical issue with
a sports issue. But the tragic death from skin cancer
last weekend of Kaye Cowher, the wife of former Pittsburgh
Steelers coach Bill Cowher, certainly drives home the danger
of exposure to the sun.
Kaye Cowher was just 54 when she succumbed to her battle
with melanoma. She was a talented athlete in her own right who
worked to protect her family from the limelight of professional
Mrs. Cowher and her identical twin, Faye, both played bas-
ketball for North Carolina State in the 1970s where their teams went 21-3 and 29-5,
winning the inaugural Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball title in 1978
ranking No. 9 nationally. They were among the first women to play college basketball
on a scholarship in the early days of Title IX.
It was there she met her future husband who played football.
Tall at 5-foot-11, she and her sister joined the Women's Professional Basketball
League where they played one season with the New York Stars and two with the New
Jersey Gems.
The athletic prowess of the Cowhers obviously was passed on to their three daugh-
ters, Meagan, Lauren and Lindsay, who also played high school basketball.
While Kaye was intensely private about her own life and that of her family, she
worked fervently for numerous charitable and civic causes in the Pittsburgh area and
in her home state of North Carolina where the family relocated when Bill retired from
She was particularly devoted to Family Resources, Inc., a nonprofit child abuse-
prevention agency based in Pittsburgh.
When the Cowhers retired to North Carolina in 2007, their parting gift to Family
Resources will be long remembered a new all-purpose basketball court and football
In Kaye's lengthy obituary in the Pitsburgh Post-Gazette, it was pointed out that
she championed her own identity as a pioneering female athlete and an advocate for
women's sports while raising three daughters who were gifted athletes themselves.
Her tragic death from skin cancer a deadly form of cancer that doesn't always
receive the wide attention as other types of cancer should serve as a wakeup call to
sun worshipers who ignore the perils of the sun.
Nowhere is that threat greater than here in the blazing Florida sun.
Former Miracle Matt Garza Tosses Tampa Bay's First No-Hitter
Right-hander Matt Garza, who started the 2006 baseball season here with the Fort
Myers Miracle and advanced all the way to the Major Leagues in that one year, hurled
the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay's history last Monday, a 4-0 victory over Detroit.
Garza compiled a 14-4, 1.99 ERA Minor League record in 2006 when he jumped
from Fort Myers to New Britain and then to Triple A Rochester before being called up
by the Minnesota Twins late in the season.
He was traded by the Twins later that year to Tampa Bay for a trio of players that
included outfielder Delmon Young.
Garza faced only 28 batters in Monday's gem, a single walk.
Seventeen-Year-Old Rookie Infielder Who Signed Record Contract Is
Now rPlaynng Here for Gulf Coas i no, a gifted infielder from the Dominican
Republic, who received a record $3.1 signing bonus, the most ever paid by the
Minnesota Twins to a non-drafted rookie.
Sano participated in extended Spring Training and was recently assigned to the
rookie level Gulf Coast Twins who play here at the Lee County Sports Complex.
Originally signed as a shortstop, Sano was shifted to third base and was hitting
.288 in his first 14 games with the Gulf Coast Twins. His on base percentage was
.333, slugging percentage .500 and had eight RBIs with two home runs.
Miracle Drop Three of Four to Brevard County Last Weekend
Despite losing three of four games to the Brevard County Manatees last weekend,
the Fort Myers Miracle began this week just two games out of first place in the Florida
State League South Division.
After winning the series first game, the Miracle lost the next three to drop to 14-15
for the second half of the season.
The Miracle will be home this weekend at Hammond Stadium facing the Tampa
Yankees in a four-game series starting Saturday at 7:05 p.m. The first pitch Sunday is
1:05 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday games have a 7:05 p.m. start.
Tampa was 18-10 when the week began, just one game out of first place in the
FSL North.#

Are Municipal
Bonds Right
FOf YO ?
by Jennifer Basey

Tax seasonofficially
ended on
April 15. Yet you
can explore tax-
smart investment
opportunities all
year round. And
when you're look-
ing at the fixed-
income side of your portfolio, you
may want to consider two possibilities:
municipal bonds and Build America
You've probably heard of municipal
bonds, but you may not be familiar with
how they work. You can find two key
types of municipal bonds: general obliga-
tion bonds finance the daily operations of
a municipality or school district, while rev-
enue bonds finance hospitals, utilities, air-
ports, affordable housing and other public
works. So when you purchase a "muni,"
you are helping support a community.
Of course, your investment will bring
you some tangible benefits, too. First,
you'll receive regular interest payments.
Furthermore, these payments typically

are exempt from federal income taxes -
and possibly state and local income taxes,
too. If you're in an upper income bracket,
you may find munis to be especially valu-
able. (Keep in mind, though, that some
private activity bonds," which are typi-
cally used to finance airports, housing or
stadiums that can benefit private entities,
may be subject to the alternative mini-
mum tax, or AMT.)
Build America Bonds (BABs) share
some similarities with tax-free municipal
bonds, although BABs are taxable invest-
ments. BABs provide capital to munici-
palities so that they can build or improve
infrastructure, including schools, roads,
public buildings and so on. The U.S.
Treasury pays state or local government
issuers a subsidy equal to 35 percent of
the interest they pay investors for buying
the bonds.
BABs have proven quite popular
among institutional investors, such as
pension funds, that typically don't benefit
from tax-free municipal bonds. But are
they right for you?
It all depends on your individual situa-
tion. If you owned a BAB, your interest
payments would be federally taxable, but
you might get some state tax breaks if
you live in the state where the bond is
Many BABs have long-term maturities,
which may not be a problem if you're
buying the bond for its steady interest
payments and plan to hold it for its entire
life. But if you think you might want

to sell your bond before it matures, be
aware that longer-term bonds, by their
vey nature, are subject to greater interest
rate risk than shorter-term bonds that
is, longer-term bond prices will be more
affected by interest rate movements.
Furthermore, you'll have to consider
credit risk the possibility that the issuer
of your bond will default or be unable to
make payments. Remember, the munici-
pality issuing the bond, not the federal
government, backs a BAB. Although past
performance is not a guarantee of future
results, municipal bonds' historical default
rates have been low.
Ultimately, you'll need to consult with
your tax advisor before purchasing either
a municipal bond or a BAB. Like all
investments, they can provide benefits,
but you need to be absolutely sure of
what you're getting.

Rasmussen College announces
the launch of an Associate's
Degree in Professional Nursing
program through the School of Nursing
at its campus in Fort Myers, which will
soon celebrate its two-year anniver-
sary. Approved by the Florida Board
of Nursing, the degree program fills a
market need for board-approved regis-
tered nurse (RN) programs, as students
nationwide are experiencing long wait-
ing lists for program admission and the
national demand for nursing profession-
als grows.
According to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, registered nurses constitute
the largest group of health care workers
in the United States, and employment
in the field is expected to increase by
22 percent through 2018, resulting in
more than 500,000 new jobs. A Nursing
Management Aging Workforce Survey by
the Bernard Hodes Group indicates that
thousands of nurses are expected to retire
soon, further increasing the need for edu-
cational options that deliver programs for
students interested in becoming profes-
sional nurses.
"An improving economy and industry
that continues to change due to health
care reform will soon create an upsurge
in demand for professional nurses. This
trend is particularly evident in Florida,"
Rasmussen College Regional Dean of

my new family has had some difficul-

On Aug. 2, 1990, Iraqi forces invade
Kuwait, Iraq's tiny, oil-rich neighbor. Kuwaitis
defense forces were rapidly ovenwhelmed,
and those that were not destroyed retreated to
Saudi Arabia. On Aug. 9, Operation Desert
Shield, the American defense of Saudi Arabia,
began as U.S. forces raced to the Persian Gulf

It was British mathematician, historian
and philosopher Bertrand Russell who made
the following sage observation: "If there were
in the world today any large munber of people
who desired their own happiness more than
they desired the unhappiness of others, we
could have paradise in a few years."
Do you know why camels are artiodac-
tyls, while humans aren't? It's because drom-
edaries have an even munber of toes (two) on
each foot, while we have an odd munber
According to a poll conducted in the
United Kingdom, 80 percent of male college
freshmen and sophomores in that country have
never done a load of laundry in their lives.
At weddings here in the United States, it
is conunon for the bride to toss her bouquet to
detennine who will be the next to be married.
At weddings in Finland the custom is a bit dif-
ferent, though the outcome is the same: There,
the bride traditionally wears a golden crown,
and at the reception she is blindfolded and
spun around. Then all the single girls in atten-
dance dance around her while the bride, still
blindfolded, tries to place the crown on one of
them. It's believed that the lucky girl who ends
up wearing the crown will be the next to wed.
It takes about 2.5 pounds of grapes to
make a single bottle of wine.
Ever wonder \\here the phrase "cool as a
cucumber" came from? It's actually an estab-
lished fact that the interior of a cucumber can
be up to 20 degrees cooler than the ambient air
temperature surrounding it.

ger, more complex and more violent. It takes
a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to
move in the opposite direction." -- Albert

everyone will be able to benefit.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Confronting someone \\ho is making a lot of
mistakes could be the kindest thing you can do
both for that person and for anyone who could
be adversely affected by the errors.
BORN THIS WEEK: You absolutely
glow when you see beautiful things, and
everyone around you is wanted by your light.

On Aug. 3, 1861, the last entry of the
serialized novel "Great Expectations" is
published. The book had been serialized in
Dickens' literary circular, All the Year Round.
The novel tells the story of young Pip, a poor
orphan \+ho comes to believe he will inherit a

one of America's most famous redheads
and beloved comic actresses, is bomnear
Jamestown, N.Y Ball starred with husband
Ricky Ricardo in television's "I Love Lucy"
from 1951 to 1957.
On Aug. 4, 1936, American Jesse Owens
wins gold in the long jump at the Sununer
Olympics in Berlin. It was the second of four
gold medals Owens won in Berlin, as he
finely dispelled Gennan leader AdolfHitler's
notion of the superiority of an Aryan "master
On Aug. 5, 1957, Philadelphia-based
"American Bandstand" goes national as the
show is beamed to 67 ABC affiliates across
the nation. The show included the famous seg-
ment in which teenage studio guests rated the
newest records on a scale from 25 to 98 and
offered such criticisms as "It's got a good beat
and you can dance to it."
On Aug. 7, 1964, the United States
Congress ovenwhelming approves the Gulf of
Tonkin Resolution, giving President Lyndon
Johnson nearly unlimited powers to oppose
"conununist aggression" in Southeast Asia.
The Johnson administration went on to use the
resolution as a pretext to begin heavy bombing
of North Vietnam in early 1965 and to intro-
duce U.S. combat troops in March 1965.
On Aug. 8, 1974, in an evening televised
address, President Richard Nixon announces
his intention to become the first president in
American history to resign. Impeachment pro-
ceedings were under way for his involvement
in the Watergate affair.

Y Stars
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Don't
gnash those pearly whites because you might
have to delay your plans. This could give the
Lucky Lamb a better perspective of what's
been done, and what still needs doing.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Scoring
fmancial bull's-eyes is easy for the focused
Bovine who knows the ins and outs of the
marketplace. But even with your success
record, caution is still the watchword.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Watch that
tendency to over-romanticize a situation that
should be given closer scrutiny. Better to be
suspicious now and ask for an explanation, or
face a sad surprise later.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Bruised
self-confidence can make things difficult
unless you accept the fact that you have what
it takes. Ignore the critics and concentrate on
believing in yourself. Good luck.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
Congratulations on what you've accomplished.
But this is no time to curl up for some serious
catnapping. Your rivals are probably already
working on plans to overtake your lead.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Your adventurous side wants to play a more
dominant role this week, and you might want
to oblige. Try to arrange for some getaway
time with that special person.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Taking logical approaches to pesky workplace
issues can help resolve even long-standing
problems. A shift in policy might catch you by
surprise. Be alert to signs of change.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Your kindness and compassion are exactly
what are needed in dealing with an awkward
situation in the early part of the week. Share
the weekend fun with family and friends.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Keeping your focus straight
and true is a good way of getting your points
across. Save any variations for a later time.
The musical arts are important this weekend.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Reject advice to cut corners in reaching
your goal. Better to take a little more time to
do the job as you promised. You'll gain new
respect for your honesty and integrity.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Don't allow a troublesome situation to grow
so big that it will be increasingly difficult to
