Entertaining with SMALL BITES

It's

a

great

season

for

spending special times with friends and family. Best, we love the serendipitous gatherings that happen this time of year, nothing too fancy, just great food and conversation with others -all in a leisurely mood.

Share good times EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY! Caramelized Onion & Cheese Squares A savory, thin, biscuit-like crust forms the foundation of these savory squares. The first flavor layer is comprised of sautéed onions and thyme. Then, two types of cheese, dolloped here and there, top it off. The result is a fabulous taste sensation – perfect for nibbling while sipping your favorite wine. The crust is mixed easily and quickly patted into shape. The onion-thyme topping, sautéed to silky tenderness, lends a savory character that is subtle, yet distinct. Plan to serve the squares warm from the oven, or at room temperature shortly thereafter.

20

DECEMBER 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

DO-AHEAD: The onion-thyme topping may be sautéed ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen until ready to use. Flatten the mixture before freezing for a quick defrost later. FOR BEST RESULTS: Measure and mix the dry ingredients together ahead of time and store in a zipper bag or airtight container. This crust uses baking powder as the leavener and should be baked shortly after mixing with the liquids. ENTERTAINING TIPS: 1–If you’re the host, relax and enjoy yourself at your get-together. Your guests will reflect the mood and tone that you set for the occasion. 2–Choose a menu that will keep you with your guests and not in the kitchen. Or conversely, move the party to the kitchen and put everyone to work in preparing the eats. 3–Stock your pantry with a variety of antipasto items when a quick tray requires assembling at the last moment. We keep capers berries, pepperoncini, cornichons, and marinated artichokes on the shelf at all times.

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh thyme 1 tsp sugar Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/2 cup/70 g crumbled blue cheese 1/2 cup/70 g crumbled fresh goat cheese Preheat the oven to 425°F/220°C/gas7. To make the crust: In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the mixture. In a measuring cup, whisk together the milk, olive oil, and melted butter. Slowly pour the milk mixture into the well, stirring until just blended and the mixture comes together into a rough mass. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out into a 10-by-13-in/25-by-33-cm rectangle. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet/tray. Pierce the dough all over with a fork. To make the topping: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until softened and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste, reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and caramelized, about 20 minutes.

Spread the onion mixture evenly over the dough. Sprinkle with the cheeses, cut into squares with a pizza wheel or a sharp knife, and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes.

THREE PALMIERS Puff pastry, filled and tightly rolled into the classic palmier shape, makes quick appetizers that may be enjoyed all year long. Using the same technique for each type of palmier, vary the fillings according to your need for savory or sweet small bites. Here are three varieties:

way in which the puff pastry is formed, with a double inward roll meeting in the middle when sliced, produces a shape reminiscent of palm tree leaves, hence, the name. Our appetizer version of palmiers produces bitesized pieces with some contemporary fillings infused in the curls.

DO-AHEAD: The filling may be made and refrigerated, or frozen, ahead of time. As well, the logs of filled, rolled puff pastry may be assembled, wrapped well, and frozen until time to bake. Allow the logs to defrost for 30 minutes at room temperature before attempting to slice. Slice while the pastry is still well chilled and firm.

775-388-7222

The tiny palmiers may be baked ahead of time, and enjoyed at room temperature, or briefly warmed and crisped for 5 minutes in a moderate oven.

The Boutique

FOR BEST RESULTS: Slice the palmier rolls into ¼-inch slices and bake until just barely golden on the edges and bottom; avoid baking the pastry for too long a time. They will continue to crisp as they cool. ENTERTAINING TIPS: 1–When serving wine, offer a choice of both red and white wines to your guests. Have plenty of water options available during the occasion, too. 2– Serve wine in its appropriate glass, one that presents the wine to the palate in its most advantageous way. We can guide you through the choices and pairings. 3–Instead of spearing each hors d’oeuvre, “serve” decorative toothpicks or skewers in a small cordial glass right on the platter with the small bites that may require these little utensils.

SUN-DRIED TOMATOES AND GARLIC PALMIERS


ALMOND-CINNAMON PALMIERS


Makes filling for 2 sheets of puff pastry
 Approximately 96 mini-palmiers

Makes filling for 2 sheets of puff pastry
 Approximately 96 mini-palmiers

(1) 8.5 oz. oil packed, julienned, sun-dried tomatoes
 2 cloves garlic, sliced

1 cup roasted almonds
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

Drain the tomatoes reserving the oil, squeeze the tomatoes dry. In a food processor, process the tomatoes and garlic together until a smooth paste has been formed. Add drips of the reserved oil as needed to make a very thick paste.

PESTO PALMIERS
 Makes filling for 2 sheets of puff pastry
 Approximately 96 mini-palmiers

1/2 cup, packed, basil leaves, washed, patted dry
1/2 cup, packed, parsley leaves, washed, patted dry
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons olive oil Mix all ingredients, except the olive oil, in a food processor and process until finely ground. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and continue to process. Add additional oil if needed to make a very thick paste.

Directions Mix all ingredients in a food processor and process until finely ground.

To Make the Palmiers:
Follow the process for any of the three fillings. 1. Using prepared frozen puff pastry, defrost in the refrigerator until pliable, yet still chilled.

6. Place the rolls on a baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.

2. On a lightly floured surface, unfold one sheet of puff pastry and roll out to a 9” x 14” rectangle.

7. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the roll, crosswise, in 1/4-inch slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. If necessary, chill slices on the baking sheet.

3. Apply filling of your choice all over the rectangle in a thin, even layer. 4. Beginning long edge, roll the puff pastry in a tight roll to the rectangle’s midpoint. Repeat on the opposite long edge. 5. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry.

8. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or just until the edge begin to turn a golden brown. 9.  Cool the palmiers on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. DO-AHEAD: Make the fillings ahead of time, roll the puff pastry logs and freeze until ready to bake and serve.

For BEST RESULTS: Basil is a very tender herb that readily oxidizes and browns. Use half basil and half Italian flat-leaf parsley to achieve and keep a bright green color in the finished pastry. Use only a very thick pesto paste, (minimal olive oil), for filling these little palmiers. A pesto that is too thin will encourage the pastry roll to unfurl and lose its tightly rolled shape during baking.

Here’s a holiday food that’s also healthy! We found it suggestive of some of our favorite French bean preparations, so it was an immediate favorite for us. White cannellini beans are mashed with aromatic onions and garlic, then finessed with three different fresh herbs and a spritz of fresh lemon juice. We served the spread, as suggested, as a topping on freshly toasted bruschetta – a hearty and satisfying small bite. This fantastic spread is good to serve on its own with grilled bread, or

Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened and lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, parsley, chives, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are heated through and the flavors have blended, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. When the bean mixture is cool enough to handle, transfer to a food processor. Add the crème fraîche and lemon juice and process until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, if necessary. Process again if needed just to combine.

COOKBOOK REVIEW Wine Bites, Simple Morsels that Pair Perfectly with Wine By Barbara Scott-Goodman. Published by Chronicle Books, San Francisco, CA. Copyright 2011. This cookbook became an immediate favorite as we perused its pages and devoured its table of contents. It projected a casual type of entertaining that we enjoy not only this time of year, but all year long. We easily imagined ourselves sitting in front of the fireplace during this time of year nibbling on the book’s recommendations, or grazing the savory bites on the summer patio at twilight. The book’s emphasis is on easy preparation with plenty of full flavors. The nine chapters cover salty snacks, dips and spreads, cheeses, pizzas and tarts, bruschetta and sandwiches, fried bites, seafood, meat and, of course, some small sweet treats.

Traditional Charm With Contemporary Shine When the Smith family relocated to Elko from Charleston, SC, they were ready to open an exciting chapter in their lives. Building the home of their dreams was the final piece of the puzzle. “We wanted everything new and fresh,” said Andrew Smith. The home’s exterior has plenty of classic features: stucco and stone accents, stately shutters. Inside, the Smiths wanted a balance between traditional and modern elements, with the home’s Southern charm offset by clean and simple lines to create an open, yet family-friendly environment.

By combining an open floor plan with warm hardwood flooring and complementary wall color choices, the Smith’s home has a flow and rhythm that’s perfect for family living and entertaining. The finishing touches from the French doors to the black, white, and metallic accents - complete the Smith’s vision of a comfortable home with contemporary shine. “The process was a true team effort between us and our builder, Braemar Construction,” Smith continued. “They created a pleasing flow throughout the home.”

In search of your live Christmas tree. With Christmas just weeks away, many families will be heading outdoors in search of a live Christmas tree having that perfect size, to decorate for the holiday season. The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is the perfect place to cut a live tree and enjoy a family outing in the backcountry of Elko County. Permits and cutting instructions can be obtained from the Forest Service office in Elko at 2035 Last Chance Road (738-5171) and the Wells office at 140 Pacific Ave (752-3357) from Monday - Friday. Permits can be bought for pinyon pine, juniper and sub-alpine fir. Each species has its unique and wonderful characteristics. From big and wide pinyon to tall and skinny sub-alpine firs, there is a tree for every home. As with any winter activity, be prepared for the weather and road conditions when you head out for your adventure, and don’t forget the camera to capture your trip.

26TH ANNUAL ELKO

Christmas Bird Count Prior to the turn of the century, people engaged in a holiday tradition known as the Christmas "Side Hunt": They would choose sides and go afield with their guns; whoever brought in the biggest pile of feathered (and furred) quarry won. Conservation was in its beginning stages around the turn of the 20th century, and many observers and scientists were becoming concerned about declining bird populations. Beginning on Christmas Day 1900, ornithologist Frank Chapman, an early officer in the then budding Audubon Society, proposed a new holiday tradition-a "Christmas Bird Census"-that would count birds in the holidays rather than hunt them. So began the Christmas Bird Count. Thanks to the inspiration of Frank M. Chapman and the enthusiasm of twenty-seven dedicated birders, twenty-five Christmas Bird Counts were held that day. The locations ranged from Toronto, Ontario to Pacific Grove, California with most counts in or near the population centers of northeastern North America. Those original 27 Christmas Bird Counters tallied around 90 species on all the counts combined. Now volunteers participate in counts in all 50 states, in all Canadian provinces, several Central and South American countries, and several Pacific and Caribbean islands. Each December, birders interesting in participating in the CBC can sign up and join in through the Audubon website. From December 14 through January 5 each year tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas brave snow, wind, or rain, and take part in the effort. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this long-running wildlife census to assess

40

DECEMBER 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

the health of bird populations - and to help guide conservation action. The data collected by observers over the past century allow researchers, conservation biologists, and other interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. When combined with other surveys such as the Breeding Bird Survey, it provides a picture of how the continent's bird populations have changed in time and space over the past hundred years. There is a specific methodology to the CBC, and all participants must make arrangements to participate in advance with the circle compiler within an established circle, but anyone can participate. Each count takes place in an established 15-mile wide diameter circle, and is organized by a count compiler. Count volunteers follow specified routes through a designated 15-mile (24-km) diameter circle, counting every bird they see or hear all day. The Elko Count Circle includes portions of Elko, Spring Creek, and South Fork. It's not just a species tally--all birds are counted all day, giving an indication of the total number of birds in the circle that day. If you are a beginning birder, you will be able to join a group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. If your home is within the boundaries of a CBC circle, then you can stay at home and report the birds that visit your feeder on count day as long as you have made prior arrangement with the count compiler.


Come join the members of Bristlecone Audubon as they hold their official 26th Elko Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 19, 2015. Everyone is welcome and all levels of experience can participate, new birders will be partnered with experienced members. Observers meet at 7:00 a.m. at one to two locations, one in Elko and one in Spring Creek. Groups will go out on assigned routes which take an average of 4 to 6 hours to complete. At 4:30 p.m. all count information is turned in at the annual pot luck dinner where the data is compiled and preliminary results can be announced. For more information contact: Lois K. Ports at 775-738-4270 or ports@frontiernet.net

Tag Heur Carrera Connected If you thought $1000 for an Apple Watch was a bit too steep you may have a hard time justifying $1500 for the Tag Heur Connected even though it is a Tag.

The Tag Heur Connected continues the Tag tradition with amazing engineering and craftsmanship as it is built with titanium, sapphire crystal and touch screen technology.

Pet Personals

It seems that this year, the Holiday seasons have snuck up on us more quickly than usual. Just in case you were wondering, Christmas is only 4 Fridays away…You’re welcome! With the changing of the leaves and the glorious scent of wood smoke in the air, ingredient staples start appearing in our kitchens. Pumpkin, turkey and prime cuts of beef, potatoes and yams, garlic/leeks/onions, bread dough and stuffing…! I could go on, but time to back on track. While these comfort foods and overload of tryptophan are FANTASTIC for us humans, let’s not forget about those snoopy noses and begging faces under the table. We all love the intense excitement in our fur-babies when they get table scraps, but several of our holiday favorites are NOT favorites of their gastrointestinal systems. So, in order to keep this season easy on your schedule…your pocketbook…and your carpets, let’s just establish the “NO” on human foods that your pet does not need this winter. Pancreatitis (some of us may know this word very well…) is the diagnosis that is often established after we have taken radiographs and ran bloodwork on your vomiting/diarrhea dog. The pancreas is responsible for releasing digestive enzymes into the GI tract, where they are activated in the small intestine. Pancreatitis is the inflammation of the pancreas, most often caused by the intake of a fatty meal (that turkey leg, those mashed potatoes, Gram’s green bean casserole…). With this inflammation, digestive enzymes in the pancreas are activated too early, and essentially start to digest the pancreas itself. This acutely painful, and can be very serious in cases where the animal goes into shock, or the pancreas starts to hemorrhage. Clinical signs are vomiting and diarrhea, lethargy, fever, tender abdomen, and a universal “praying position”, where you may notice them trying to relax with their hind end in the air, and head and front legs low on the floor. The treatment is usually 2-5 days in the hospital on IV fluids and antibiotics, while your pet is fasted, the only way to get the pancreas to “shut off” so that it stops releasing enzymes and starts to heal. Depending on the severity of the pancreatitis diagnosed by your veterinarian, there may or may not be life time effects on the pancreas itself. But maybe your pet doesn’t like cooked and prepared meals. Maybe they are more of the paleo lifestyle, and like their meals fresh, right off the kitchen floor. Raisins, garlic/onions/leeks/shallots, avocado, grapes, chocolate (ESPECIALLY dark and un-sweetened baking chocolate), raw bread dough, alcohol, mushrooms, and ANY sort of

sugar, especially xylitol, are extremely dangerous to your pet, and can have immediate and serious repercussions on them that could result in a very costly, long-term hospital stay/ treatment. Cooked bones from the ham, the turkey bones left after dinner, or the skeleton of that T-bone steak, are not safe for your pet to chew on (chicken bones aren’t the only bad guys here!). After the heating process associated with cooking meat, we have broken down the proteins, and relative integrity of that bone, making it very soft, and easy to shard and break apart. Those shards don’t come out easily, or…they don’t come out at all. And I can promise you that Santa did NOT promise your best friend an exploratory surgery for Christmas. Now, I realize, that after reading this, you are sure that your little buddy is going to hate your guts and think you are the worst mom…EVER. But trust me on this. Steam some fresh veggies, give them a bit of mashed pumpkin or yam, some warmed high quality canned dog food SATURATED in dog gravy from Petco, and 1-2 frozen banana cubes for dessert… they won’t even care to notice what your family is enjoying for dinner! Stand firm, say “NO!” to table scraps, and have a very safe and happy holiday season!


Elko's very own native born and raised, Bobby Jack Davis always had the love as a child for drumming. Thru out the past Davis has sat in with many bands that where formed in his hometown. Bobby came from a long line of entertainers thru his mothers side that were featured on the Lawrence Welk show and a big part of the Bakersfield sound. However his true make up is Rock and Roll, growing up in the era of Beatles to the Monkees. Here today Davis frequents the famous Boyce and Hart from past to present. Boyce and Hart partnership made a breakthrough with a song recorded by Chubby Checker, "Lazy Elise Molly', in 1964. They went on to write hits for Jay and the Americans 'Come a Little Bit Closer', Paul Revere and the Raiders 'I'm Not Your Steppin Stone', and The Leaves 'Words'. The latter two songs provided the Monkees with B-sides in 1967. The duo also wrote the theme song to the daytime soap Days of Our Lives. Davis values all advice that he can get from the late Tommy Boyce's wife here today. Recently Bobby Davis decided to create a band instead of joining others, and the Beach Party Surfers USA was born. Beginning encouragement was from his friend who was born and raised in Southern California, Don Smith aka

Surfer Don and his 1965 Fender guitar and amp. Bobby has taken on his son Shane Alan Davis to play guitar along with Dan Beeler, singer and keyboards and long time friend Kevin Duffield on bass. "The band has been very successful from the start, with many visits from thru out the world hitting the web site", quoted Davis. Beach Party Surfers band is recognized by the way they play big hits from the past that are well received by many, plus the songs that they have written. "We have great response when we sneak them in on our song line up", Kevin quotes. The band has agreed to spending time this winter to write more songs to add. "We have reached beyond our hometown and now it's time to create further" quoted Shane. The band has been able to collect a captive audience in Japan which has brought them support from Blue Star Guitar Company, Gotemba Shizuoka Japan. "You know you are spinning in the right direction when the international music scene has reached out to you" Dan quotes. Right now the band is underway negotiations kicking off 2016 by teaming up with California Surf Bands to play Los Angeles and Orange County area.

Angels to Accompany

- 11TH ANNUAL ELKO -

Regional Interfaith Christmas Crèche Exhibit Exhibit “When the time for this Savior’s advent was at hand, an angel was sent to announce to Mary that she was to be the mother of the Son of God. Then a host of angels was commissioned to sing on the night the baby Jesus was born. Shortly thereafter an angel would announce to Joseph that the newborn baby was in danger and that this little family must flee to Egypt for safety. When it was safe to return, an angel conveyed that information to the family and the three returned to the land of their heritage. “From the beginning down through the dispensations, God has used angels as His emissaries in conveying love and concern for His children.” (The Ministry of Angels, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.) Angels, will be the feature of this year’s Elko Regional Interfaith Christmas Crèche Exhibit, along with hundreds of nativities of every shape and size, from the world over. Last year, for the 10th Anniversary, the exhibit asked for handmade nativities. The response was incredible, handmade nativities and commercial nativities numbered more than 1,100 — the largest local response to date. Recognizing the important role of angels in the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ, and the tender feelings many have for angels in their own lives today, the Crèche Committee desires this year to fill the exhibit with a “multitude of heavenly host” and hopes angels will receive the same enthusiastic response as did the handmade nativities. Angelic music will also be heard during the exhibit. New groups have been added to the music line-up this year. Spring Creek Elementary School Honor Choir and the Great Basin College Choir join the

schedule of favorite groups such as the Mountain View Elementary School Choir, Spring Creek High School High Expectations Choir, Elko High School Choraliers, The Miner Chordsmen, and the Elko Handbells. Following tradition, the exhibit will culminate with the annual community Messiah Sing-Along, now in its 22nd year, and sponsored by the Elko Religious Leaders Association. The Messiah is followed by a devotional broadcast from Salt Lake City, which includes the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Since the first year of the exhibit, children have been asked to draw a picture of the Nativity, which has usually been the traditional Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus in a stable. This year children have been asked to draw a specific scene from the story that include angels, such as the angel appearing to Mary, or to the shepherds. To the see nativity as envisioned by children is always fun and insightful. Once again, the exhibit is pleased to be partnering with Joshua Tree Shelter to collect gifts for the homeless. Gifts of boots, hats, gloves, thermal underwear, socks, flashlights, tarps, hand warmers, and sleeping bags can be brought anytime during the exhibit. The exhibit opens Thursday, December 3, at 3001 N. Fifth Street, inside the Elko West Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and continues through Sunday December 6. The exhibit is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, and free to attend. The musical performances begin at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

SUPPLEMENTS What’s Really in Your Supplements?

Look closely at the supplements you’re taking to ensure that you’re getting the nutrition you need.

Earlier this year, a New York Times article explained how the New York State Attorney General in the U.S. accused major retailers of fraudulently labeling several of their supplements. Some of these supplements include ginseng, gingko biloba, St. John’s wort, valerian root and more.

It was also found that some of these stores weren’t including all of the additives to their supplements on the ingredient list! Such a practice is concerning, especially with many people taking supplements to be sure they are getting all they need from their diets. More than half of U.S. adults take supplements, and nearly a third of the population in the UK and Australia do so. Our bodies and diets change

over time, and often it may be necessary to take in supplement form what we can’t get from food, but need to work at their highest level.

Navigating the Confusing Shelves The world of supplements can seem confusing at first. The shelves at retail shops carrying nutritional products are overloaded with everything from vitamin A to zinc. Just taking a look at the supplement section feels overwhelming! Each product has different formulations, with different doses and percentages on the label.

Some Helpful Tips The most important tip we can offer is to try to get enough nutrients from foods first rather than relying on supplements. As sometimes that is not always possible, here are some basic tips to help you navigate the complicated world of supplements: • The reputation of the brand manufacturer, their suppliers, and their record of quality are helpful, but most important is what is actually in the supplement.

• Buy drugs at drug shops and health foods at health food shops. • Check for companies that are GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) certified. • Do your research. To benefit optimally from a supplement, there’s a specific dosage for a specific person, at specific frequencies and durations. • Read the labels carefully. Choose a supplement based on your research and not just what the label says. • Looking for a particular nutrient? Add the following phrases to your Google search: “most bio available” or “most absorbable form.” • Seek out a natural health care practitioner that can make the best recommendations for you. There’s a lot out there and when it comes to giving your body all that it needs to reach optimal health, give us a call to see how we might be able to help!

C O N T R I B U T E D B Y S H A B O N YA D U T T O N O F S TAT E FA R M , W R I T T E N B Y K E L S I E C R E A M E R

“I nominate Amanda Dailey-Reynolds. She is the most caring person I know. She would help anyone in need at any time, even if it means her having to struggle for a little while. Amanda is a person who you can go to in a time of need and not feel judged or embarrassed. I have seen Amanda hand out money to people in need. Give a home to a person in a tough spot. She is the most kind hearted person I know.” Everyone knows at least one person who seems to have this natural way of making you feel at home and safe, that person for many is Amanda. She is the person that in the midst of disaster will stop all that she is dealing with just to be your shoulder to cry on. The person you know you can turn to even though you haven’t spoken in months. She puts everyone else before herself. She’s more than just a mother, a friend, a co-worker, a role model…she is a fighter. She is strong, stronger than most will ever have to be in their lifetime. When it comes to describing how amazing she truly is words like devoted, compassionate, resilient, all seem to fall short. How do you begin to describe someone who’s touched the lives of so many? Whose capacity to love is boundless? Whose ability to put others needs before her very own make you yourself strive to be a better person? It’s seems impossible… Often with small towns everybody knows everybody. In this particular case I feel privileged to say I know Amanda and her family very well. My siblings and I grew up with her kids, my family

became a part of her family and when I think of my Childhood there are thousands of memories that flood my mind involving them…some that will forever make me laugh and others that bring me to the brink of tears. I couldn’t have imagined our lives without Amanda’s influence and when I say her love is boundless please understand there is much more power behind the words than I could convey because that love was felt, that love was experienced first hand. “I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them and we help them in return. Well, I don't know if I believe that's true but I know I'm who I am today because I knew you...like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes a sun, like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood. Who can say if I've been changed for the better? But because I knew you I have been changed for good.” Lyrics from the song “Good” Written by Stephen Schwartz for his musical Wicked We undervalue the strength of a kind smile or a listening ear. Amanda has turned many lives around, more so than she probably will ever know. You are the most giving spirit and those around you consider themselves lucky to be a part of your life. People are better for knowing you and for being able to experience the love your family gives. Your heart is pure and your intentions good. We could use more Amanda’s in the world.

THANK YOU FOR BEING A WONDERFUL ROLE MODEL AND A fantastic

Noah’s Ark Preschool and Childcare Center

The preschoolers at Noah’s Ark Preschool and Childcare Center have been enjoying the winter weather we have had lately. The snow has brought many opportunities for the children of the preschool to learn in a variety of ways from science, math, and art to social studies, music and life skills.

learning during the preschool years a child then enters school with confidence in his ability to take on new learning challenges. Noah’s Ark strives to prepare them to be successful in the public school system. At Noah’s Ark the development of a spiritual life is very important. The children learn about faith, patience, obedience, thankfulness, and honesty. Prayer at meal times and learning favorite bible stories can be everyday fun in addition to the Wee Learn curriculum which is implemented in all preschool classes.

Well into its 33rd year, Noah’s Ark is still upholding to their principle goal of “sailing toward creative learning and loving care with Christian guidance.” Noah’s Ark is a state licensed preschool teaching, loving, and caring for infants as young as six weeks to Noah’s Ark currently has space for your school-age in early elementary. child where they will be in a loving and safe Noah’s Ark’s emphasis is not on teaching atmosphere in a small ratio environment specific academic skills but on allowing where they have room to blossom.
