Superior residents uddkted to regular communication fixes from Windstream had withdrawal problems Sunday when much of the phone company's syMonl in southeast Nebraska was out of service for many hours. The experience reminds! me of a story Jim Logback, editor of The Hill City Tin published in the Graham Crackers column he shares with co-editor Bob lloyd. Jim didn't vouch for the validity of the story and noither will I. However, I found it entertaining and holm you will as well, "In ancient Israel, it came topm that a trader by the name of Abraham Corn did take unto hintselfa healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy. And Dot Corn was a comely woman, large ofbremt broad of shoulder and long of leg. indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com. And she said unto Abralmm,her husband, 'Why dost thou travel so far from town to town to sell thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent'/' And Abraham did look at Ila as thdngh she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, 'How dear?' And DOt replied, 'I will place drums in the towns and drums in between to send meml saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The The weekend brought a number of activities that potentially can bother this editor's allergies including a road trip during harvest season to deliver this week's Leader section to participating news- papers. This was followed on Saturday laying new floor covering in a basement room. "" The hiying wasn't the problem. The problem came earlier when it was necessary to clean a portion of the warehouse where the vifiyr was cut to shape • . I finished up the weekend hiking through a pasture to check radishes and'turnips growing in a field that earlier this year had raised a wheat crop. After that, Rim and I dug our sweet potatoes. Though planted about 30 days later than planned, the sweet potato harvest was a good one. And turnips we sampled were delicious. Given another week to two they will be ready for harvest. Any of those activities potentially could have stimulated my fall allergies. " . yes, on Monday I was frequently sneezing. Thus I was interested when the fqllowing story arrived in the news room from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. • (The article was written by Michael Huckabee, professor and director of the University of Nebraska Medical Center's physician assistant program.)

One Year Ago The United States Postal Ser- Country Roads By Gloria Schlaefii Fall harvest is in full swing and if all goes well today, this farms soybean fields will all be harvested before this newspaper is mailed. A neighborhood friend has been helping by running the com- bine, while my husband plants wheat. Running errands, helping move trucks and equipment and preparing lunches has kept me busy. Flat tires have plagued this year's fall harvest. Nearly every morning, as the equipment and trucks are checked and prepared for the day's work, it is noted at least one tire needs attention. Today, dual tires on one truck were both fiat. Flats moan"down time" as the trucks have to be taken to the several miles to the nearest tire repair shop to have the tires repaired or replaced. They were once common but now only a few service stations provide tire repair service. We are certainly thankful for those offering this service. While visiting with other farmers, we learned they too have had tire troubles this fall. One farmer walks the country roads picking up nails, while he waits for the truck to be filled.with grain. In one afternoon he picked up enough nail, wire and screws to fill a large coffee can. He told of the nails being all sizes and included some square head nails used in the 1800s. Another farmer told of picking up a bunch of roofing nails all gathered in one area of a dirt road. He suspected a can of nails may have fallen from a pickup truck atthat location. Another farmer said when the old fences were pulled out to put in newer ones, the nails fell into the road ditches and eventually the nails found their way onto the roads. Without rain for several days and with the strong winds that have blown over the past week or two, more nails are exposed in the country roads. The nails in the roads, cause havoc not only for the harvest trucks but also for the service pickups, automobiles and equipment rubber-tired equipment. Damage caused by a "penny" nail may cost hundreds of dollars to repair. some little known facts about the universal experience of sneezing. • Why sneeze? Expelling contaminants that enter our bodies through tile nose is the original goal of a sneeze, but this reflex often gets confused. The trigeminal nerve, which provides sensation to our face• and innervates our jaw muscles, is wired to pick up any irritation inside the nose, such as pepper, pollen, dust or molds. That makes sense, but then there's other sneezes. Nearly one in four people sneeze when looking directly at a bright light (the photic sneeze). Some people sneeze after sex, some after plucking an eyebrow,'others when experiencing a full stomach. The science behind those sneezes continues to beinvestigated, but answers are elusive.. What's in a sneeze? It's been estimated that 40,000 particles are expelled in the typical sneeze, but who's counting? It's more important what those particles are. In a now classic study from the late 1940s, researchers asked 48 individuals who were known o, arriers of group A streptococci (the bug that causes "strept throat") tv come sneeze in their laboratory. Devices were set out to catch the expelled bacteria. Eighty percent discharged large and heavy drop- lets coikainlng bacteria which fell rapidly 1.5 feet from the sneezer. owever, one participant (our warrior sneezer) had bacteria col- lected 9.5 feet away, • Can't stop. While many people may have a series of several sneezes in arow, there are rare cases of intractable sneezing. These people,rs6metimes children, sneeze incessantly for weeks to months and the inedical literature documents more than 50 cases. Each one stems from a psychological condition and treatment success has beer[achieved with biofeedback and relaxation exercises. For the rest of us, making the trigeminal nerve focus on something other than the sneeze may help stop it. That means such techniques as sffetching the nose, pinching the skin below the nose or between the e#ebrows, or clenching the teeth to tighten the jaw muscles may work. / C09ering the sneeze. Let s first address the dangers of the plug-your-nose technique. Pinching the nose closed only increases the internal pressure of the sneeze, and reports of popped blood vsseis in the eyes, brain and chest are reported. So keep the nose open. Yet, getting the spray covered can be a trick. Many experts recommend we should sneeze into our elbows, which may reduce th spread better than the cover-your-mouth rule. The goal is to capture the sneezed contents, and a well-placed hanky will work sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS).' Abraham thought long  decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent. To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dotdevised a system that only she and the drummer's knew. It was know as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to trans- mit ideas and pictures m Hebeew to the People (I-rITP). And the youn men did take to Dot Corn's trading as cloth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were Called' Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS. And lo, the land was overjoyed as the new riches and the deafening sound of droms that no one noticed the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought offevery drum maker in the land. Indeed, he did insist on drums to be made that would work only Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticka. And DOt did say, 'Oh, Abeaham, what we have started is being taken over by others.' And Abraham loved over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known. He said, 'We need a name that reflects what we are.' And Dot replied, 'Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Op- erators.' 'YAHOO' said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they name. it yAHOO Dot Com. :, Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GHIK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside. It soon became know as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (CKXK)LE)." And that is how interact all began according to a readers of the Hill City Times who submitted the story to that newspaper's editor. I better quit this column for this week and get on to more serious topics. A Different Slant By Chuck Mittan It seems like the pair of bridge projects slowing down my daily commutes to and from Red Cloud have been going on a long time. Probably because they have been going on a long time. I've been relatively quiet and pleasant about it, and have only mentioned it once I think in this column, and that was only to offer the origins of the word "shoofly." One of the projects has caused little trouble for motorists, because they built a shoofly completely around it, then removed the old bridge and replaced it with a triple concrete box culvert (I know all the right words because Of my years of covering county road department activities). .................. The second bridge, a quarter mile or so west of the first, is I think merely having the deck removed and replaced with new concrete. For that one, they closed one lane at a time and installed temporary stoplights at each end. The westbound lane was done first; the eastbound lane is now in progress. Tuesday morning, as I approached the red light and stopped, I could see the "open" lane of the bridge was clogged by one of those giant, slow-moving machines that does something with asphalt (I don't know what they're called, because county road departments don't use them). I couldn't see anything behind it, because it or something else was belching smoke, so when the light turned green I proceeded to the bridge and waited for it to move. It appeared as though the workers were trying to move enough orange barrels to get the beast onto the closed side of the bridge. When that finally occurred, I saw there were several vehicles behind it waiting to cross; like those of us heading east, they had apparently waited for their green light and proceeded on to the bridge. It was disappointing that no one there saw this dilemma coming and saw to it that at least one side stayed put, but there we were, three vehicles heading in each direction facing each other in the I same lane on the bridge, orange barrels on one side, concrete barricade on the other. As I sat in my little truck, pondering which side would give way first, a man covered in tar approached and motioned for me to back up. I looked over my shoulder to make sure the people behind me were also backing up, but in hindsight, I should have just backed into the vehicle behind me, and use "the tar-covered man made me do it" as my defense. As i backed up slowly, many things went through my mind. What happens if both sides refuse to yield, resulting in a stalemate? I was comforted by the fact that we wouldn't have gone hungry or thirsty, because behind me was a Pepsi truck and behind that was a potato chip truck. We wouldn't have eaten healthy, but we wouldn't have starved• Also, how did they decide which side to force to back up 100 yards, then take to the shoulder and allow the others to pass? I wanted to suggest to the tar-covered man that he take a quick survey to ascertain which motorists would be latest getting to work, but from his actions and what I was able to hear through my closed window, it didn't seem to me like he and I spoke the same language. That is not racist, it is merely a statement of fact. It is well-known that on the subject of immigration reform, on a scale of Charlie Janssen to Joe Biden, I'm much closer to Joe Biden. By the way, if Charlie Janssen moves into the governor's mansion when Heineman leaves, I'il be mo,¢ing tO southern California a few years ahead of schedule. The tar-covered man is no more to blame for not speaking my language than I for not speaking his. Goodness.knows I had every opportunity to learn Spanish in the many fine public schools I attended, but I chose not to. I also failed to learn algebra, geometry, biology and how to bake a cake. Come to think of it, it' s probably a good thing I can string words together in a fairly pleasing manner, otherwise I would probably be, well, a tar-covered man in an orange vest arbitrarily deciding who will get to work on time. I look forward to both projects being completed, though I will miss the curves the shoofly provides on an otherwise straight and boring commute• I especially look forward to removal of the stoplights, with their idiotic cycle of 22 seconds of green followed by four and a half minutes of red. And after witnessing first hand how the department of roads removed the stoplights in Superior, I can only assume when the project i s done, they'll push them into the creek and drive away. ? : '" :Church Of The N00izarene 740 E..Seventh : Office Phone 402-879-4391 Pastor '.
