ROGER DALTREY SHOWCASES HIS VOICE AND CAPTIVATING CHARISMA ‘The Who’ frontman performs tunes from his new solo album By Alison Elsner


oger Daltrey’s still got it, and then some. This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and founder of the iconic rock band The Who has announced a new solo album entitled “As Long As I Have You,” his first in 26 years, which he will showcase live on his 2018 summer show tour. Daltrey will be joined on stage at Fantasy Springs by current The Who band members Simon Townshend, Jon Button, Scott Devours, Loren Gold and Frank Simes, and it’s a sure bet that they will perform The Who hits, rarities and songs from this

new album as well as previous discs. This larger-than-life British music man has sold over 100 million records including nine U.S. and 10 U.K. top ten albums and 14 U.K. top ten singles. He’s played well over 2,000 gigs in a career spanning over 50 years including venues such as Woodstock, Monterey Pop, Desert Trip, Shea Stadium, The Super Bowl halftime show and Live Aid to name but a very few. Daltrey’s appearances in over 30 feature films include early starring roles in “Tommy,” “Lisztomania,” “The Legacy,” and “McVicar.” Through the 1980s and 1990s, he

appeared in various musicals and dramas, including “The Beggar’s Opera,” “The Comedy of Errors,” “The Little Match Girl,” “Mack the Knife” and “Buddy’s Song.” His television work includes “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “That 70’s Show,” “Rude Awakening” and many others. And, of course, true fans know that The Who tunes, marked with Daltrey’s trademark pipes, serve as the theme songs for all four shows in the “CSI” series family. Daltrey has raised tens of millions of dollars for global charity and was awarded a Commander of the British Empire for his work

with The Teenage Cancer Trust. He is in the UK Music Hall of Fame and has lifetime achievement awards from The BRIT Awards and from The Grammys. With this latest show, Daltrey demonstrates why he continues to be known as one of rock music’s most charismatic frontmen and famed for his powerful voice and energetic stage presence. Roger Daltrey takes the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 18 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino located at 84245 Indio Springs Parkway in Indio. For ticket information, visit

Napping for dollars SUNDAY, AUGUST 12

An elderly Texas man, who wishes to remain anonymous, has decided that at 90 years of age it is time to make restitution for the mistakes he made in life. The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] reports that he even sent a $50 bill and a hand-written note of apology to the town of Midvale in Utah. The note read: “I am enclosing this $50 to pay for a stop


sign I took many years ago when I was a thoughtless teenager. Stupid might be a better word for it.” Officials in Midvale believe the crime was perpetrated about 75 years ago.

Now Here’s a Tip By JoAnn Derson

• “Want to make sure that your kids stay on schedule and get the right amount of sleep? Keep the TV off in the morning. Limit TV (and computer/game) time in the hour before bedtime. This works in our family.” — R.G. in Georgia • “I have lost more than 30 pounds in the past year. Every time I go down a dress size, I give away the clothes that are too big. It gives me added incentive to maintain the weight loss.” — J.H. in Arizona • Back to school hack: Dry-erase markers work on glass. That means the bathroom mirror, your daughter’s vanity, a photo frame or any other glass surface

can be used to write notes on. Try chalk markers, too; they’re vibrant and colorful, plus opaque enough to be seen with any background, and they clean up with water. • “I help my kids save money by printing out a photo of their goal: Whether it’s a bike, someplace they want to go or tickets to a concert, having the picture helps them to visualize what they’re working toward. Often it makes the difference between spending money in the moment or using self-control to delay the gratification until they can get what they really want.” —E.S. in Washington

• Use a flowerpot of oiled sand to store your hand garden tools. The sand cleans and the oil lubricates and protects. • According to the experts at Weber grills, to get your charcoal grill clean, you should preheat on high for 10-15 minutes. The heat will burn off any food bits left on the grates from your last cooking session. Then follow up with a stainless-steel brush on the grates and bowl. Happy grilling, folks!

Brain Teaser

There are 20 people in an empty, square room. Each person has full sight of the entire room and everyone in it without turning his head or body, or moving in any way (other than the eyes). Where can you place an apple so that all but one person can see it? SEE ANSWER ON PAGE 11

Odie: Chihuahua, Adult, Male Hi, everyone! I’m Odie and I’m a male Chihuahua mix who’s about 1 1/2 to 2 years old. My coat is a short-hair mixture of white, cream, and fawn. I was brought in as a stray. It was really scary out there for me because of all the bad things that can happen to a dog. I’m so glad a kind person brought me to safety. I really like it at PRC because I have lots of friends and I’m very well taken care of. I have my own “condo” that’s air-conditioned with a soft bed for me to relax in. If you take a look at my front paws, you may think something is wrong because one of my paws turns outward. I’ve had that since I was born and it doesn’t bother nor stop me! I love running around in the backyard playing with my buddies! You should see me– sometimes I get so into playing that


I think I’m a Rottweiler instead of a small Chihuahua! I have a lot of spirit and I love teasing some of the larger dogs! Oh, what fun for me and for anyone watching me! I also have a lot of spunk and can be feisty; but, as soon as someone picks me up and holds me, I become Mr. Snooze, the cuddle-bug. My eyes start closing and I start making these sweet, baby sounds–and before you know it, I’m asleep in your arms. Everyone falls in love with me because of that! I love being held and I’ll give you kisses to let you know how much I like it. So, if you’re looking for a special little guy who’s full of love and spirit, I’m the one for you. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you take me home. I’m a good size to go places with and I’m a wonderful size to cuddle with. I’d love to meet you and I’m all ready to go home with you I’m neutered, upto-date with vaccinations, and microchipped. —Xoxo Your Outstanding Odie 83-496 Avenue 51, Coachella

Recipe of the Week

The Kitchen Diva By Angela Shelf Medearis



aribbean dishes exhibit the influence of a wide variety of cultures and cuisines, including British, Dutch, French, Spanish, East Indian, West African, Portuguese and Chinese. The cooking technique that made Jamaica famous is the spicy jerk marinade that’s used for both meats and vegetables. The name is derived from the way the meat is poked or “jerked” with a sharp object to create the holes where spices are inserted. Jerk cooking dates back to the Carib-Arawak Indians who inhabited Jamaica in the 17th century. After capturing an animal and thoroughly cleaning it, the carcass was “jerked,” and the resulting holes were stuffed with a variety of spices. Hot peppers and herbs were plentiful on the islands and were used as a preservative before refrigeration was available. The combination of spices also acted as a marinade and a way to tenderize tough cuts of wild game. To cook the jerked meat, the Indians dug a deep pit and lined it with stones. The pit was filled with green pimento wood, which, when burned, would smoke heavily and add to the flavor. The holes that were “jerked” into the meat also allowed heat to escape without loss of moisture. Using marinades based on hot peppers and herb combinations was created by the Indians and the West African Cormantee — who also were called Maroons, the name given to slaves who escaped

the plantations — to flavor and preserve a variety of meats. Jerk marinade is composed of four main ingredients: Scotch Bonnet peppers, whole allspice berries, scallions (also called green onions or spring onions) and thyme. For best results, the meat should marinate in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. After marinating in the jerk spices, the meat should slowly be smoked over a low fire. Using pimento (allspice), apple, mesquite or hickory wood chips provides an intense smoke that will permeate the meat and create an authentic jerk flavor. The wood chips should be soaked in water for at least 30 minutes before placing them on the coals. This slow smoking method also makes the meat moist and tender. Jerk marinades are a wonderful way to add spice and a touch of the Caribbean to your barbeque menu. This recipe for Jerk Pork uses the traditional marinade recipe; however, other spices can be incorporated to create your own flavorful variation.

JERK PORK Jerk marinades typically use Scotch Bonnet peppers, one of the hottest peppers in the world. Remember to always wear gloves when preparing fresh peppers. It’s best to remove the stems and seeds with your gloved fingers or paring knife. Removing the seeds doesn’t affect the flavor, but greatly decreases the heat. Afterward, always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and cold water, and clean any utensils or surfaces you have used. • 1/3 cup vegetable oil


Photo by Depositphotos

• 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar • 4 green onions, chopped • 2 cloves garlic, chopped • 2 to 5 Scotch Bonnet peppers, seeded and minced, to taste • 3 bay leaves • 3 peppercorns • 1 tablespoon dried ground cinnamon • 3 to 4 whole allspice berries, lightly crushed • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg • 3 pounds pork chops, about 1 inch thick 1. Combine the oil and vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in the green onions, garlic, peppers, bay leaves, peppercorns, cinnamon, allspice, pepper and nutmeg. 2. Trim any excess fat from the pork chops. Place pork chops in a re-sealable plastic bag. Pour the spice mixture over them, coating each chop well. Put the bag of pork chops in a baking pan and place

in the refrigerator to marinate for up to 24 hours, turning once or twice every four hours. 3. Allow the chops to come to room temperature before grilling. Heat the grill until the coals are somewhat white with ash; the flame should be low. Place the chops on the grill and cover with the lid. Grill for 5 to 10 minutes per side, until the chops are no longer pink in the center. Serves 4 to 6.

Senior News Line By Matilda Charles

Could Coffee Help Us Live Longer? Do coffee drinkers live longer? A new study looked at data to determine whether consuming coffee lowered the risk of premature death. This was not a small, short-term study. The data was collected for over a decade on a half-million people who’d been part of the U.K. Biobank study. It looked at all manner of health information and daily living, such as health history, smoking, drinking, exercise and coffee consumption, as well as exams and tests. Researchers then looked at all their information in terms of longevity in coffee drinkers. Here’s what they found: • Risk reduction rose depending on the amount of coffee consumed. One cup a day gave an 8 percent lower risk of early death, compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. That rose to a 16 percent lower risk for those having six or seven cups.

At eight cups or more per day, however, the rate fell to 14 percent. • It didn’t matter what kind of coffee was consumed. It could be ground coffee, instant or filtered. • It didn’t matter whether the coffee was regular or decaffeinated. Since both regular and decaf coffee had the same results, it’s not the caffeine that helps reduce the risk of death. Bottom line is that, with all the many chemicals in coffee, they just don’t know what part of coffee is helping. A word of warning: Just because a study says coffee helps reduce risk of death, it doesn’t mean we should double or triple the amount we drink. That’s an individual thing and should be discussed with your doctor. If, for example, you already are on medication for high blood pressure, even the small amount of caffeine in decaf coffee could have an impact on how effective your medication is.
