THE PONCHATOULA TIMES, JANUARY 26, 2012, PAGE 4 Poetry Magazine celebrates 100 years CHICAGO Poetry magazine, published by the Poetry Founda- tion, celebrates its centennial in 2012. First published in Chicago in October 1912 by founding editor Harriet Monroe, Poetry is the oldest monthly devoted to verse in the English-speaking world. As the magazine turns 100. it holds fast to the principles that guided it from the beginning: to discover new voices, present new work by internationally recognized poets, and enliven discussion about and reader- ship for contemporary poetry. "Only a handful of literary magazines are still publishing after 100 years; a poetry maga- zine that reaches that milestone is a rarity indeed." said Poetry Foundation president John Barr. "Poetry remains, as T.S. Eliot wrote in 1954, 'an Ameri- can Institution."' Poetry established its repu- tation early and published the first important poems of T. S. Eliot. Ezra Pound. Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens. H.D.. William Carlos Williams. Carl Sandburg, and other now-clas- sic authors. In recent years, more than a third of the poems published in each issue are submitted by writers who have never before appeared in Poet- ry' s pages. "The magazine today is a tes- tament to those who have come before," said Poetry magazine editor Christian Wiman. "Put together Harriet Monroe an intrepid woman who wanted a magazine equal to the art and architecture she saw every- where around her in turn-of- the-century Chicago; 90 years of persistence and poverty; a dozen editors feeding and herd- ing poets like feral cats: and a $200 million windfall in 2002 from the reclusive Ruth Lilly, and you get a magazine unlike any other." (More on the history of the magazine is available as a part of an electronic press kit available at www.poetryfounda- tion.org/100years) No one would be more as- tonished by Poetry's centennial than Monroe herself, whose "little magazine" often teetered on the brink of bankruptcy; in- deed. at the time of her death during the Great Depression, she was deeply skeptical about the magazine's survivM. But the magazine did more than endurein recent years Poetry has enjoyed record circulation and won prestigious awards, in- cluding two National Magazine Awards in 2011. Gator FROM PAGE 1 man asked. The wife replied 'That was for the piece of pa- per with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pock- et'. The man then said 'When I was at the races last week Jen- ny was the name of the horse I bet on'. The wife apologized and went on with the housework. Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bash- es him on the head with an even bigger frying pan, knock- ing him unconscious. Upon re- gaining consciousness the man asked why she had hit again. Wife replied. 'Your horse phoned' Look for a major street re- surfacing in the Spring, and the construction on the west side of a new Dollar General store. Did you know that between Census years, Ponchatoula's population increased 26 %?

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster. 2. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold! 3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking. 4. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking. 5. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream; then beat them. 6. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic. 7. Heat leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove; set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the food channel and it really works. 8. Put cooked egg yolks in a Ziploc bag. Seal; mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy; squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done - easy clean up. 9. To warm bread, biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were re- frigerated, place them in a microwave next to a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster. 10. Start putting torn newspaper in your plants; work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants, overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers. 11. Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily. 12. To get something ou of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacu- um. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings. 13. Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... ta da? ... static is gone 14. Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring, cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient (peanut butter, honey, etc.) and watch how easily it comes right out. 15. Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth? 16. If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola? It unseals easily. 17. Use your hair co/ditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it m your hair. 18. To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2 with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the glass and gone for- ever? 9:PUt small piles of corrml where you see ants. "They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed? 20. INFO ABOUT CLOTHES DRYERS The heating unit went out on my dryer? The gentleman that fixes things around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes.) He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh material. I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like. Well...the hot water just sat on top of the mesh? It didn't go through it at all? He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh- that's what burns out the heating unit. You can't SEE the film, but it's there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft and static free. You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box ... well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen. This is also what causes dryer units to poten- tially burn your house down with it? He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush at least every six months. He said that increases the life of the dryer at least twice as long? How about that??? Learn something new everyday? I certainly didnt know dryer sheets would do that. So, I thought I'd share? Note: [ went to my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water ran through a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the mesh screen. I washed it with warm soapy water and a nylon brush and I had it done in 30 seconds. Then when I rinsed it ... the water ran right thru the screen? There wasn't any pud- dling at all? That repairman knew what he was talking about?
