What I Never Told You: A Daughter Traces The Wartime Imprisonment Of Her Father

Gladys Prochaska A daughter traces the wartime imprisonment of her father,

Airman John Roland Kyler, a ball turret gunner. The death of her WW II veteran father at 81 in 2004 revealed in

his lifetime diary the details of his imprisonment after his B17 was shot down in Belgium. His wife Sally, my high school friend, went with Candy Kyler Brown, his daughter, to Belgium and met friends of the shot down airman who rescued them. The rest of the crew were in three different German prison camps. Ball turret gunner Kyler was one of the imprisoned. The wife Sally and daughter Candy met friends of the airmen in Belgium and throughout Germany. — June 2012 Ancestral home trip

Claire and Del Ziegler.

Claire Beaudet Ziegler Recently my husband Del and I spent a

month driving through France. We rented a car in Paris and drove south, visiting many castles on the way. In southern France, our hotel room overlooked the never- conquered Roman fortress Carcassonne. Then we went west to the Bordeaux wine country to visit several wineries. One of the primary reasons for the

visit was a trip to the small coastal port of LaRochelle, an hour north of Bordeaux. In the 1650’s, my Beaudet ancestor left on a diffi cult sea trip for the unknown New World in Quebec, Canada. Little of the port and city has changed over the centuries.

An hour east of the port, we visited the

small town with an ancient active church where my ancestor was baptized in the 1600’s. A sign on the property honored him. The visit to the beaches and cemeteries of Normandy was solemn, especially when standing on the beach and remembering. This was offset by the delightful and

beautiful small port city of Honfl eur and Giverny, Monet’s home with its spectacular gardens. The bridge from the painting “Water Lilies” was still there. Back in exciting Paris, we spent a few

days enjoying the food, visiting the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and other sites. Great trip. 

I’ve heard of a few deals on cruising

during the summer months, but I’m a little concerned about hurricane season. Do you have any strategies that you can suggest to help reduce weather risks? “Hurricane Tracker,” Sun Lakes, AZ Dear Hurricane Tracker, From May to late December, prices for

Caribbean getaways drop, and the bargains get so tempting one almost forgets the “H” word. We do have a few protective strategies that we can suggest. Offi cially, the hurricane season stretches

from June 1 to November 30, and within that time frame August to October are peak months. Granted, the chance of a major tropical

spot of paradise is

storm beating up your particular small. But even if a

hurricane doesn’t catch you right in its path, it disrupts weather patterns for miles around. Nobody wants to spend vacation time staring at the sky and wondering when the rain will

protective strategies you can follow: Choose


Also, Trinidad and Tobago are below the hurricane belt. Choose Low-Risk Months: June, July

and November Choose a Mobile Resort. Cruise ships

are a practical way to visit the Caribbean during the risky season, as they can simply re-route if a storm threatens. Choose

a Resort with Hurricane

Weather Guarantees. A number of major resort chains offer hurricane protection, for example: Super Clubs (which has the Breezes brand), Club Med, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Wyndham Resorts. Consider Buying Weather Insurance.

We also suggest purchasing travel insurance, which comes in many varieties (such as trip cancellation or trip interruption), and some policies may also offer protection against weather, though this is a less common feature of insurance coverage. If you have a travel question or problem

stop. We’ve listed several Spots. Although

there’s not really a totally safe zone, the southern ABC islands, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean near Venezuela, are considered the best bets.

Marjorie Wright It is easy to save money and help your plants grow

better while conserving water. The simplest way is to cease over-watering your plants. In home gardens, more plants die from over-watering than from under- watering. Unfortunately, the early signs of stress that plants exhibit are similar for both situations. Periodic deep watering is better

for established plants than

frequent shallow watering. For more information regarding both saving water and watering your plants, consult the Maricopa County Cooperative Extension Offi ce at
