    The Capital Christmas Tree came from Arizona this year!

    It is tradition that one child from the tree’s state light the Capitol Christmas Tree with the Speaker of the House.  Students who submitted ornaments for the outside tree were invited to submit a drawing form along with their ornament.  The Capitol Christmas Tree 2009 student winner is Kaitlyn Ferencik from Surprise, Arizona.  A seventh grade student at Canyon Ridge School, Kaitlyn traveled to Washington, D.C. with her parents Erika and Troy Ferencik and her teacher Natalie Moore.


    Twelve Days of Christmas Carole

    There is one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me. What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won't come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?  I found out.

    From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning

    plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.

    • -The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.

    • -Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.

    • -Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.

    • -The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.

    • -The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.

    • -The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.

    • -Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit--Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.

    • -The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.

    • -Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.

    • -The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.

    • -The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

    • -The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.

    So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol...so pass it on if you wish. Merry (Twelve Days of) Christmas Everyone


    Volunteer Citizen Scientist needed to watch Hummingbirds


    Arizona State Parks, Audubon Arizona and the Hummingbird Monitoring Network are launching an effort to collect scientific information about hummingbird species in Arizona. The project is funded by a grant provided by TogetherGreen.org, an Audubon conservation initiative made possible by funding and assistance from Toyota.

    The project includes regional biodiversity studies and investigation about the distribution and migration of hummingbirds. (see hummonnet.org.) The diversity and abundance of hummingbirds in the SW United States, southern Canada, and northern Mexico will provide land managers with information that will help protect natural habitats.
    Sonoita Creek State Natural Area has been monitoring birds since January and Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park will be a feeder-watch opportunity for new volunteers this fall.  The Verde River Greenway Natural Area, has also been designated by Audubon as an "Important Bird Area" and will be the next Park looking for citizen scientists. These Parks will all offer high profile hummingbird conservation education events to engage the public in this volunteer research opportunity.

    Learn more about becoming a citizen scientist and a  hummingbird feeder-watch volunteer.

Fighting with Colonel Theodore Roosevelt in Cuba, the Arizona column of the Rough Riders proved the loyalty of the western territories and enhanced both Arizona’s image and chance for statehood. Please take this opportunity to meet Rough Rider re-enactors and learn the story of this unique conflict.

     Lunch Bunch is a free program about Arizona history and/or current events. Bring your lunch and enjoy coffee and cookies provided by the Museum Guild. Free admission and parking for Museum guests in Wesley Bolin Plaza at 17th Avenue and Washington. Entrance is on Washington.

    Local Job Growth in Booming In-Home Senior Care Industry
    (March 9, 2010)
    – With the national unemployment rate remaining stubbornly high at 9.7 percent and more and more news of companies going under, where on earth can you find a job in this town? Look no farther than your aging parents and relatives, who are creating one of the biggest economic booms this country has ever seen. In the coming years, two out of ten people in the U.S. will be age 65 or older and there just aren’t enough people to take care of them. That’s why care giving for the elderly is an exploding sector of the growing local and national senior care industry. This year alone, the in-home care industry is expected to grow by 12.5 percent, adding more than 100,000 new jobs, many of them right in our area.

    “Senior care is a thriving industry with no sign of a slow down in sight,” says Peter Ross, CEO of Senior Helpers, the nation’s fastest growing provider of in-home senior care with offices locally and nationally. “We employ more than 6,000 caregivers nationally and we are hiring at most of our 283 locations.  In-home care is recession-resistant, rewarding work that provides peace of mind for families who just can’t be with their senior loved ones all of the time.”


    • A recent study by the National Caregivers Association (NCA) shows that over the next 25 years as the Baby Boomers continue to age, the proportion of people needing care will increase while the number of adult children able to take care of them will decrease. Bottom line: There will be fewer American adults able to take care of aging parents! 

    • More than 43 million people in the U.S. – 19 percent of adults – provide care for an elderly family member or friend.

    • The NCA reports the typical caregiver is a middle-aged daughter caring for an elderly parent or grandparent while juggling a family and a job simultaneously. Nearly 100 percent report emotional strain, most report financial strain and 68 percent miss work because of care giving responsibilities.

     “The burden usually falls on one of the adult children who already juggles a family, a job and all the responsibilities that go with their own life,” says Ross. “More and more seniors want to stay in their own homes and professional caregivers can make this possible by taking the burden off of adult children.” 

    REWARDING WORK FOR AMERICANS – AN ECONOMIC BRIGHT SPOT   Nichole  Henry was out of work when she got the job as a Senior Helpers’ caregiver. She is studying to become a registered nurse (RN) and works helping elderly clients prepare meals, take their medication on time and simply listen when they want to talk. “I wanted a rewarding job and I’ve found my calling,” says Henry. “There is no job greater than helping others who can’t do for themselves. I listen to their concerns with an open heart and it makes all the difference in the world!”

    About Senior Helpers:   Senior Helpers connects professional caregivers with seniors who wish to live at home as opposed to a nursing or assisted living facility. The company has 283 franchises in 39 states and one in Canada offering a wide range of personal and companion care services to assist seniors living independently with a strong focus on quality of life for the client and peace of mind for their families. Senior Helpers strives to be the leading companion and personal care provider that offers dependable, consistent and affordable home care.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel offers a year-round whale watching package
    Sometimes called the Whale Capital of the West, scientists believe that Dana Point may possibly serve as a reference “landmark” for whales and is a famous gathering area, attracting not only marine mammals but marine biologists and whale lovers from around the world.  In celebration of the California Gray and Blue whale’s annual journey, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel offers a year-round whale watching package.  

    A Whale of a Package starts at $500 for garden/pool view accommodations. The package includes overnight accommodations, a 2-hour whale watching excursion with Dana Wharf Sportfishing, including an on-board snack and beverage, and American breakfast for two in the ocean front Restaurant 162’.

     From January through April, California Gray Whales leave the cold Arctic Seas and follow the coastline to the warm, calm waters of Southern California and Baja. This migration brings much of the pod past Dana Point, where the whales can be easily seen and photographed.  Blue whales, the largest mammal ever to roam the earth, migrate to tropical waters to mate and give birth to their calves from May through November.  The Blue whale migration also takes these amazing creatures past Dana Point. 

     The Gray Whale are essentially black, but have a grayish appearance caused by the accumulation of marine parasites on their skin.  They measure 30 to 45 feet as adults and weigh about a ton a foot.  Gray Whales do not have a dorsal fin like other whales; instead they have a series of "knuckles" along the after portion of the back.  The whales travel up to 12,000 miles every year from their feeding grounds in the cold arctic waters where to the warm, shallow lagoons of Baja California where they mate and bear their young.  Twice hunted to near extinction, the Gray whale population has rebounded in the last 50 years to an estimated population of nearly 30,000 animals.

     Blue whales are an overall blue-gray color and are long and streamlined. Their dorsal fins are extremely small, and their pectoral flippers are long and thin. Blue whales are rorqual whales, a family of baleen whales with pleated throat grooves that expand when the animal takes in water while feeding. Blue whales can be up to 100 feet long, weigh as much as 150 tons and have been found in every ocean of the world. They swim individually or in small groups, and they are commonly seen traveling in pairs. Approximately 2,000 blue whales live off the California Coast and migrate to Mexico, and Costa Rica.  The historic population of Blue whales, prior to commercial hunting, has been estimated at 200,000. Today there are anywhere from 5,000 to 12,000 blue whales in the world.  The Blue whale is listed as endangered.   

    Dana Wharf Sportfishing is dedicated to helping visitors enjoy the unique wonders of Dana Point Harbor and the Orange County coastline. The warm waters off of Dana Point flourish with sea life including whales, dolphin, harbor seals, and California sea lion. The thriving coastal waters provide bountiful fishing of sand bass, calico bass, halibut, bonito, yellowtail, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore, and dorado.

     Consistently ranked among the best resorts in the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego and sits on a 150-foot bluff with panoramic white-water views of the Pacific Ocean and two-miles of sandy beach.  For more information or reservations call 800-241-3333, the hotel directly at 949-240-2000, a travel professional or visit The Ritz-Carlton Web site at www.ritzcarlton.com.



    March 19, 2010: When the sun sets on Saturday, March 20th, a special kind of night will fall across the Earth. It's an equal night.

    Or as an astronomer would say, "it's an equinox." It's the date when the sun crosses the celestial equator heading north. Spring begins in one hemisphere, autumn in the other. The day and night are of approximately equal length.

    To celebrate the occasion, Nature is providing a sky show.

    see captionIt begins as soon as the sky grows dark. The Moon materializes first, a fat crescent hanging about a third of the way up the western sky. Wait until the twilight blue fades completely black and you will see that the Moon is not alone. The Pleiades are there as well.

    The Moon and the Pleiades are having a close encounter of rare beauty. There's so little space between the two, the edge of the Moon will actually cover some of cluster's lesser stars. According to David Dunham of the International Occultation Timing Association, this is the best Moon-Pleiades meeting over the United States until the year 2023.

    Right: A similar Moon-Pleiades conjunction photographed by Marek Nikodem of Szubin, Poland, in July 2009.

    The Pleiades are a cluster of young stars some 440 light years from Earth. They formed from a collapsing cloud of interstellar gas about 100 million years ago. By the standards of astronomy, that's really young. The Earth under your feet is almost 50 times older. Dinosaurs were roaming our planet long before the Pleiades popped into being.


    Only about seven of the Pleiades are visible to the unaided eye. The "Seven Sisters" are Sterope, Merope, Electra, Maia, Taygete, Celaeno and Alcyone, named after daughters of the mythological Greek god Atlas. Together, they form the shape of a little dipper, which is why the Pleiades are often mistaken for the Little Dipper, an asterism of Ursa Minor.

    Binoculars are highly recommended for this event.

    First, scan the Moon. You'll see craters, mountains and lava seas. Note that you can see the entire Moon, not just the brightly-lit crescent. The Moon's dark terrain is illumined by a ghostly glow called "Earthshine." It is the light of our own blue planet shining down on the Moon.

    Next, scan the sky around the Moon. The Pleiades come into sharp focus---and they are more than seven. Dozens of faint "sisters" can be seen through even modest optics.

    This night doesn't sound equal. It sounds much better than that.

    Experience the equinox!

     TOMS Shoes Announces Its 3rd Annual One Day Without Shoes
    With every pair purchased, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One.

     New York, NY (March 4, 2010) - In an effort to bring attention to the impact a simple pair of shoes can have in a child’s life, TOMS Shoes announces its third annual One Day Without Shoes campaign that asks everyone worldwide to go barefoot on April 8th.   Barefoot events around the world from Venice to Little Rock, Dubai to London have already been planned, with more in the works. 

     On April 8th communities and individuals will be spreading awareness about the importance of shoes in parts of the world where children’s feet are exposed to debilitating diseases.  So many of the world’s children in developing countries grow up without shoes, having to walk miles to get food and water, medical help, and attend school (which often require shoes as uniform). A leading cause of disease in these areas is soil-based parasites.  Story Continues

    Film:  Rembrandt’s J’accuse  April 18, 1pm  In this essayistic documentary, director Peter Greenaway fiercely criticizes today's visual illiteracy through a forensic examination of Rembrandt's The Night Watch. He leads us through 17th century Amsterdam to provide the masterwork's background, context and the motives of all 34 painted characters who have conspired to kill for their combined self-advantage. He paints a world that is democratic in principle but is almost entirely ruled by 12 families whose outward signs of charity and compassion hid a very different reality.  "Rembrandt's J’accuse is an enthralling docudrama with juicy conspiracy theories and forensic investigations worthy of top-tier TV crime drama."

    Film:  You Don’t Know Jack  April 25, 1pmThis film tells the fascinating story of pioneering American entertainer Jack Soo, an Oakland native who became the first Asian American to be cast in the lead role in a regular television series (Valentine's Day) and later starred in the popular comedy show Barney Miller. Featuring rare footage and interviews with Soo's costars and friends, including actors George Takei, Nancy Kwan and Max Gail, comedians Steve Landesberg and Gary Austin, and producer Hal Kanter, You Don't Know Jack traces his early beginnings as a nightclub singer and comedian, to his breakthrough role in Rogers and Hammerstein's Broadway play and film version of The Flower Drum Song. It also explores why Soo, a former internee born Goro Suzuki, was forced to change his name in order to perform post-World War II Midwestern clubs. You Don't Know Jack reveals how Soo's work laid the groundwork for a new generation of Asian American actors and comedians. Director Jeff Adachi attends the screening. Presented by No Festival Required Sponsored by Sechler C.P.A. P.C. and ASU’s Asian Pacific American Studies Program  Films are free on a first-come, first-seated basis unless otherwise noted.
