He was a banker and considered it his favorite writing instrument. It is the "Thrift Time" model in brown. What is it worth? -- Stan, Kent, Washington A: The first fountain pen was invented in 1830, but they were not really manufactured commercially until the 1880s, when a suitable metal for the tips was perfected. The first successful commercial fountain pen producers were Waterman (1884) and Parker (1888). Parker entered the market with a fountain pen named "Lucky Curve." Vintage fountain pens are collectible, and some have become quite pricey. I found your pen referenced in "Collecting Pens" by Edward Kiersh and published by House of Collectibles. According to Kiersh, your Parker Thrift Time was produced in 1932 and is worth about $150. The Pen Collectors of America can be contacted at www.pencollectorsofamerica. com. manufactured during the early 1950s by Stephens Products, a company based in Middletown, Connecticut. I found several of these projectors on eBay, most priced in the $75-$100 range. One featured the hand-cranked projector in its original box with 14 film strips, including ones featuring Hopalong Cassidy, Chip On Dale and Pluto. It had a requested opening bid of $69. As this column was being written, no bids had been submitted. Q: I have my dad's pocketwatch. It was made by Elgin. My problem is I would like to have it cleaned and don't know how to go about this. -- Norton, Decatur, Illinois A The Elgin National Watch Company was founded in 1864 in Elgin, Illinois, and produced more jeweled watches than any other company during its more than 90-year history. The company made many low-end watches, all the way up to its famous high-quality railroad grade. The railroad watches are especially collectible. Although you didn't specify the model or grade of your watch, it is best to have it professionally cleaned by a jeweler.

Egot&m & the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity. -- Frank Leahy Not surprisingly given the current political climate, the respective Vice Presidential candidates differ on most of the issues, including their policies on the environment and energy. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton's VP choice Tim Kaine has opposed big oil companies since his career as Virginia State Senator. He first endorsed a "25% renewables by 2025" goal pollution limits. Of course, a Republican dominated Congress passed the bill anyway, although President Obama quickly vetoed it to maintain stricter limits on carbon pollution. Across the aisle, Donald Trump's VP selection, Mike Pence, lacks any sort of environmental agenda in his political career. The LCV gives him a lifetime score of only The two Vice Presidential candidates (Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence) couM hardly be father apart on their respective stances on conservation, environment, energy and what to do about climate change. Credit: Joel Rivlin, Gage Skidmore back in 2007, and has continued his staunch support ever since. He has been a champion of diversifying America's energy portfolio. "We're not going to drill our way out of the long-term energy crisis facing this nation and the world.., we can't keep relying oil," said Kaine back in 2008. He reinforced this position again in his 2012 Senate race by arguing against tax subsidies for major oil companies. As far as environmental protection, he has not shown much of a track record in support or against. In May of 2013, he did vote affirmatively on a four percent, meaning he is no friend of the environment. Pence, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2001-2013 when he assumed the Indiana governorship, voted against a "Cash for Clunkers" recycling program in 2009 and also voted no on a bill improving public transportation in 2008. Meanwhile, he voted affirmatively for deauthorizing critical habitat zones and approving forest thinning projects in 2005 and 2003, respectively. As for energy policy, Pence supported the "25% renewable energy..." goal in 2007 like his warming," Pence stated in 2009. His record of the environment since then reflects his continued skepticism toward environmental protection efforts. For environmentalists, Kaine is the obvious choice over Pence, which is no surprise given the Presidential candidates who selected each of them as running mates. While Hillary Clinton may have focused more attention on other political issues over her career, she has continuously supported environmental protection and the transition away from fossil fuels, while Donald Trump has fought environmental restrictions on his ability to operate his real estate empire and recently told reporters he would consider reneging on U.S. commitments to reduce greenhouse gases made at the recent Paris climate summit.

Answers on page 14 'Ihis native witdflower displays spikes of brilliant red during summer and sometimes into fall. It loves the sun, and does well in moist soil in ditches and near stream banks, swamps, ponds or lakes. Most insects struggle to access the long necks of the trumpet-shaped blossoms, so cardinal flowers depend on hummingbirds for fertilization. Its roots were once used in traditional medicines; however, the plant is toxic if eaten in large quantities. Overpicking has reduced its numbers in the wild somewhat; it can be propagated by bending a stem down into the mud and fastening it with a rock or sticks, or can be grown by seed. -- Brenda Weaver Source: wildflowerorg, gardeningknowhow.com ~'~ 2016 by King Features Syndicate, the.
