'WHISTLE PIG' SANDWICH SPREAD

 

Refer to the recipe for 'Fried Groundhog' in THE WAYNEDALE NEWS – February 6, 2002 edition - (page S3). Instead of rolling cooked meat in flour and frying, continue boiling groundhog pieces until the meat falls off the bones. Separate bones from the meat and discard the bones. Grind the meat pieces in a food processor or meat grinder. Substitute the groundhog meat for the meat in your favorite ham salad sandwich spread recipe. Some of the ingredients I use...

Dear Cousin,

 

It was a mild March day, drizzly with intermittent showers, when we journeyed down to Morehead, Kentucky, to see grandson Benjamin wed his Kentucky bride. It is always a bittersweet moment when we see the grandchildren reach adult status and take their place in society as married men and women. It is hard to comprehend how they could have grown up so fast. It seems only yesterday that they were tumbling in the floor like puppies. During the long drive to Morehead, my...

A Museum in the Making

 

Recently I acquired an old friend... In my history with computers I've owned them about as often as cars. I often see an old movie and my dad will spot an old car. He'll name the year and model of that car just as if he drove it. Which in some cases he has.

It means they are respected in the community of Indians and non-Indians. They do things in a good way. They lead out all the dances. They are beacons of the Creator's love and light.

MARCH

by Paul Moore

 

March is when our Spring begins,
The crocus blooms, the rain descends.
But don't put on your summer thins,
For March is not when Winter ends.

 

MY FRIEND OLD BILL

by Leroy Partin

 

I once had a friend, a very good friend;
His given name was Bill.
Lived way back in Kentucky,
On top of a big old hill.

 

Bill never did much of anything;
Drank a little moonshine now and then.
Never knew where he was going;
Hardly knew where he had been.

 

Bill never trusted anyone,...
