Instructions Season Pork Skins with Salt and Pepper and place them in a 1gallon Sauce Pot with water. Bring to a boil and cover for about 30min. to render the fat and stir occasionally.

Contributed by Mandi Ratliff of Cucina Fresca If it tastes good, they will eat it. And, if it's simple and quick to make, you will cook it! Healthy food doesn't have to be boring or bland. Good food, prepared well with plenty of flavor, makes "the healthy choice, the easy choice."

*Eat colorful foods *Choose lean proteins *eat more plants *Consume with moderation *Keeping it simple.


january 2015 |

We hold to the simple theory that if it tastes good, it will be eaten. That includes healthy foods like vegetables and lean protein sources. So that’s where we’re putting our New Year’s emphasis, on some simple basics where:

“the healthy choice becomes the easy choice.” *enjoy a few nuts and seeds *drink more water *pick healthy oils

Charred Broccolini with Garlic-Caper Sauce Serves 2-3 – Easy Difficulty Total Time:15 minutes – Hands-on Time: 15 minutes It’s hard to believe so much comes from such a simple recipe, but broccolini with just a few ingredients makes for a salty, savory side with bold flavor.

1 tbsp canola, grapeseed, or peanut oil 2 garlic cloves, sliced paper thin 2 tsp salt-packed capers, rinsed 1/4 tbsp red pepper flakes 1 tbsp unsalted butter 1 1/2 lb/550 g broccolini, ends trimmed Pinch of kosher salt Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat until wisps come off the surface. Add the garlic, capers, and red pepper flakes and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Immediately add the butter and cook until melted and slightly browned.

seconds so nothing sticks, until the broccolini is charred and knife-tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove the cover and add enough water to just coat the bottom of the pan. Shake the pan around to coat the broccolini and serve immediately.

Add the broccolini and a pinch of kosher salt and toss to coat. Cover the pan and cook, shaking the pan every 30

*Healthy vegetables in 15 minutes What’s the healthy angle? Like broccoli or

Carry it Forward: This simple vegetable

broccolette, broccolini is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables have a particularly healthy composition of vitamins, fiber, and natural plant chemicals that fight disease. They sometimes carry the moniker of “super-veggies.” Regularly including cruciferous vegetables, (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, cabbage, kale, bok choy, and others), in your diet is definitely a healthy angle!

preparation works well for several other vegetables as noted in the recipe: broccoli, cauliflower, haricots verts, green beans, or asparagus. The recipe’s simple ingredients are most likely already in your pantry.

Take Two: Any leftover broccolini will be delicious the next day cold or warmed. (But, there probably won’t be any leftovers.)

january 2015 |


*Pan Roasting 101 This cooking technique is a stovetop style of preparation that is quick and easy, and works well for a number of different foods. Pan roasting utilizes medium-high to high heat for quickly cooking the foods. Like its oven roasting counterpart, it’s a dry style of cooking that uses very little oil and/or very little water.

To Pan Roast: Use a stovetop cooking pan that offers a broad cooking surface and lower sides for easy access when stirring, tossing, or turning the food. Heat the pan and one tablespoon of heattolerant oil over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers in the pan, or sizzles when a micro-drop of water is flicked into the oil. Add the food to the hot pan. In the case of quick-cooking vegetables, toss and turn to prevent sticking.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Three-Citrus Relish Serves 4 – Medium Difficulty Total Time: 30 minutes – Hands-on Time: 15 minutes The color and bright flavors in this citrus relish liven up even the drabbest of winter days.

Three Citrus Relish: 1 pink grapefruit 2 blood oranges 2 tangerines 1 shallot, halved lengthwise and sliced paper thin 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 tsp honey or agave nectar 1 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil, chives, mint, or parsley Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper Pan-Seared Salmon: 4 salmon fillets (each 6 oz/170g) 1 tbsp canola, grapeseed, or peanut oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


january 2015 |

For The Relish: Slice off the tops and bottoms of the grapefruit, blood oranges, and tangerines. Segment the fruit as follows: slice downward, top to bottom, along the curve of the fruit, removing the peel and pith (the white stuff inside the peel) in strips; repeat all around each fruit. For each citrus fruit, cut out the fruit segments with a sharp knife as follows: carefully slip the knife between the fruit membrane and the segment and gently cut until you reach the middle. Hook under the fruit to gently pop out the segment.

Keys to successful pan roasting 1. Use heat-tolerant oils that possess a higher smoke point such as canola, walnut, grapeseed, sunflower, or peanut oils. Olive oil, though always at the ready in our kitchen, has a lower smoke point and may create a smoky kitchen when cooking with mediumhigh to high heat. 2. Use a quality, heavy-bottomed pan that distributes heat evenly. This includes multiply stainless steel sauté pans, cast iron skillets, and enameled cast iron vessels 3. Don’t overcrowd the pan. If the pan is overloaded, the foods will tend to steam instead of roast. Instead, make larger quantities in two batches, or in two different pans. 4. Serve pan-roasted foods immediately when done; there’s deliciousness at the “just done” point that disappears when the food cools.

Combine the shallot, oil, vinegar, honey, herbs, and salt and pepper in a non-reactive bowl and toss to evenly coat. Let set at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving. For The Fish: Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan over high heat. (The pan is heated when you place the fish in and it sizzles loudly.) Liberally season the salmon with oil, salt, and pepper. Place the fish, skin-side down, in the hot pan and decrease the heat to medium. Do not move the fillets. Cook until well browned and cooked about three-fourths of the way through, about 3 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook until medium-rare (just barely pink in the center), about 3 minutes more. Serve immediately, topped with the relish.

National Cowboy Poetry Gathering 374 5th St., Elko (775) 753-4888 january 2015 |


*healthy entrée in 30 minutes What’s the healthy angle? Nutritionists are universal in encouraging us to eat more fish, particularly “oily fish” that contain Omega-3 fatty acids, compounds that help to lower triglycerides. Besides salmon, other Omega-3 rich fish include tuna, sardines, mackerel, and trout.


january 2015 |

Carry it Forward: The simple pan-roasting technique for this salmon carries over to other fish, boneless chicken breasts, or thin pork chops. Take Two: Any leftover salmon is a great addition to the next day’s lunch salad. The bright citrus flavors in the relish make a very nice salad topping and dressing.

Cookbook Review Keys to the Kitchen: The Essentials Reference for becoming a more accomplished, Adventurous Cook, by Aida Mollenkamp. Copyright 2012. Published by Chronicle Books, San Francisco, CA. The Author notes it best, “There’s a cooking black hold out there. No matter the reason, too few of us were taught how to cook, and we eat out more than we should. As a result, cooking has become downright daunting. That’s a shame and, with this book, I aim to change that.” Ms. Mollenkamp has assembled a compendium of recipes that not only provide a repertoire of delicious dishes, but includes cooking instruction along the way so that success is attained and the “cooking at home habit” is reinforced. Each recipe is generously annotated with hints, tips, and suggestions for improvisation. The book includes sections on kitchen set-up, some fundamental how-to’s, and over 300 recipes according to ingredient categories. While a great book for a novice cook, it’s depth and delicious results will add immensely to an advanced cook’s range knowledge and recipe favorites.

Pistachio Almond Banana Freeze (recipe and photo courtesy of

Ingredients: 1 Medium Banana 1 teaspoon almond extract 2 tablespoons raw almonds 1 tablespoon baking stevia 3 tablespoons pistachios 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk maple syrup for garnishment Add all ingredients into the blender. Blend on a low speed until the banana is smooth. Don’t fully crush the pistachios and almonds. Place the blended mixture into a dish. Do some tastes test. If you need more almond extract or stevia, stir it in. Cover the dish with foil and freeze for about an hour. You don’t want to leave it in there too long or it’ll be too hard to scoop. If you do happen to leave it in there too long, you can let it defrost in the refrigerator for about twenty minutes. Using an ice scream scooper, place the ice cream on the plate and garnish with almonds, pistachios and maple syrup for extra pizzazz!

Add the egg, avocado, and yogurt to a mixing bowl and mix on high until combined. Mix in the vanilla and Stevia. Add the water to the cocoa powder and mix. The consistency should be like icing. If it’s too thick, add water by the tbsp. Mix the chocolate into the yogurt, eggs, and avocados. Mix well. Add the flour to the

mixing bowl and combine. Adding the agave is 100% optional. You could also use honey. Grease a 5x10 baking dish and add batter to it. Spread the batter out evenly. Sprinkle the dark chocolate chips on top. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Use the toothpick method to check if they are done, they should be nice and firm. Let them cool for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator before cutting into them. You will want to keep these in the refrigerator. The cold air gives the brownies a fudgy texture and brings out the chocolate flavors! Cut the pan into 48 mini bites or 12 large brownies!

Khoury's Wine of the Month

Whiskey Chicks Ok…ok…so here’s a good one “A worldwide for their award winning wines woman walks into a bar and orders a and vodkas! Bulleit Bourbon -neat.” Now if you were paying attention, our Wait…what? Is that really how it goes? Women don’t order bourbon. They don’t summon the barkeep for a Rye on the rocks and they surely don’t ask to see the scotch list…right? WRONG! Today thirty-seven percent of the Whisky consumers in the United States are women. That number is on a steady increase due in part to the resurgence of classic craft spirits and bartenders with the “know how” to serve them. Social media has acted as a catalyst for women with similar “spirited” interests and helped to create clubs and chat rooms to review and rate the various styles and taste profiles of whisk(e)ys, bourbons and scotches. And it’s not just American women partaking in the trend. In 2012 Bourbon/Whiskey exports in the United States exceeded $1 billion dollars. The May 16th, 2012 issue of Master of Malt Whisky Blog reports that women make up over fifty-percent of the Whisky market in France and Russia and in emerging markets in Latin America and East Asia. Impressive for countries known

Chick walked into the bar and ordered a Bourbon. She didn’t say anything about whisk(e)y. And what’s with that (e) always in parenthesis? The truth is Bourbon, Scotch and Whisky are all one in the same, they are a fermented grain. They differ from each other due to the types of grains, distillation processes, and climate and water sources. The differences that we recognize are more so based on the area’s that they are created and distilled in. Scotch is a form of whiskey made completely in Scotland. Irish Whiskey in Ireland, Bourbon and Whiskey with an “e” are usually American and Canadians prefer to drop the “e”. So how does one begin her graceful transition into the world of the whiskey drinker you ask? Let’s go back to that barkeep. Next time you find yourself face to face with the beautiful bottles adorning that majestic back bar, with nothing short of confidence ask “so which one of those delicious bourbons do you want me to fall in love with tonight?” There is a pretty good chance that you won’t be led astray! january 2015 |

The Loggerhead Shrike Contributed by Lois Ports for Bristlecone Audubon

A songbird that acts like a bird of prey! The loggerhead shrike (Lanius ludovicianus) often sits on low, open perches such as fence posts waiting patiently for its prey. Insects, birds, lizards and small mammals are all part of the shrike’s diet. Small prey such as beetles can be eaten right away. The Loggerhead shrike can kill and carry an animal as large as itself. Small prey is carried in its beak while larger prey is carried in its feet. Lacking the talons of a true raptor this bird has to find a different approach for eating its larger prey. The bird impales these on thorns, sharp branches and often barb wire. This allows the bird to eat its prey without the need to hold on with its much too small claws. Leftover food is often left hanging and eaten later. The nick-name for this bird is the butcher bird.

“Loggerhead” refers to the unusually large size of this bird’s head when compared to the rest of its body. Loggerhead shrikes have a gray stocky body with a large blocky head. Their bill is thick and has a small hook on its end. The gray head contrasts with the wide, black mask, black bill and white throat. The wings and tail are black with white patches on the wings and some white on the outer tail feathers. Their body can range from 8 to 9 inches in length with a wing-span of up to 12 inches. The female loggerhead shrike is smaller and often has faint markings on the breast, slightly browner upperparts, and a less extensive face mask. The juvenile resembles the adult, but is a paler brownish-gray, with fine barring above and below, a browner face mask, a buffy bar on the wing and a pale base to the lower beak The Loggerhead Shrike is found in the Great Basin year around. Where it is a resident they usually live in pairs on

permanent territories. Some pairs will spend the entire year on one territory. This shrike usually builds its nest in a thorny tree or shrub such as a large sagebrush. The female does the majority of the building using sticks, grass and bark strips. The bulky cup like nest is lined with plant fibers, moss, grass and animal hair. Sometimes even paper or cloth have been used. The female incubates from 1 to 9 eggs for about 15 to 17 days. During this time she is fed by the male. Both adults feed the chicks which leave the nest at around 16 to 21 days old. The young shrikes become independent after three to four weeks but have been known to stay with the adults for up to three months.

Bristlecone Audubon will have its next meeting on January 16, 2015 6:30 p.m. at Great Basin College EIT Building Room 208. There will be a presentation on Birds and Climate Change. For more information contact Lois Ports at

21st AnnuAl FundrAising BAnquet Over twenty years ago, the concept of giving something back to mule deer was a dream of Emmett Burroughs. As Emmett traveled around the country, hunting and filming mule deer, he realized that many of us take this awesome species for granted. Think about what the world was like in 1988. Mule deer had been extremely abundant; right up until the winters of 1983-84. Across the West, the record snowfall lingered long into spring and early summer. Many mule deer and black-tailed deer perished; mostly starving for lack of food covered by snow and from cold temperatures. A few years later, Emmett observed that mule deer populations had not rebounded from this die-off. Many factors contributed to mule deer not coming back; loss of habitat, predators, poaching, highways crossing through the middle of transitional ranges, and subdivisions being built on winter ranges. State wildlife agencies were busy

trying to grow more elk and dealing with endangered species issues. On top of that, funding to state wildlife agencies was in decline. Mule deer management, which had been a staple of most fish and wildlife agencies, was taken for granted. It was as if mule deer, which were at one time ‘the’ premier big game species, were no longer worthy of prominence. Emmett gathered together a few of his close friends and acquaintances and asked them to think back at how much they had taken mule deer for granted. He challenged them with the famous words, “We must give something back to mule deer and black-tailed deer.” In July 1988, the Mule Deer Foundation was incorporated and now is your chance to give back!

Tom's journey includes Spanish and Portuguese cuisine, visits to a bull farm and a sherry winery, encounters with Jewish, Christian and Islamic history, and a visit to the Pablo Picasso birthplace and museum in Malaga. Andalusia is the largest region of Spain, stretching south from the sunny cities of Cordoba and Seville all the way to the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Andalusia embodies the classic image of Spain to the fullest, from flamenco dancing and bullfighting to the flamboyant nightlife and ancient architecture. Andalusia also boasts many delicious foods, offering travelers a chance to stimulate their palettes while exploring the region with Tom Harper. Andalusia was occupied by the Moors from North Africa for several hundred years from the eighth century. The Catholic monarchs would eventually reconquer the Iberian Peninsula, but the Arab influence in Andalusia left a distinct mark on the culture and cuisine. The Moors brought exotic spices and unique ingredients that are still evident in Andalusian dishes. Tapas originated in Andalusia and remain one of the region's most popular foods. Tapas are essentially just little pieces of bread topped with a combination of ingredients like olives, cheese, seafood, vegetables and meat. Locals generally dine on tapas while out for a night of drinks. Most bars and restaurants in Andalusia sell tapas. Seafood, often within Paella, is also common in Andalusia. Serrano ham is another regional gastronomic element. The Andalusian highlands have low humidity and cold winters ideal for curing this typical Spanish meat. Tourists will see shanks of serrano ham dangling from the rafters in most taverns and restaurants throughout Andalusia. The ham is cured and then sliced wafer-thin. It can be eaten as is or combined with tapas, cheese or melon. Olives are prevalent in the region and are used in many dishes. The Andalusian city of Seville is famous for its manzanilla olives. This greenish-brown olive grows abundantly in the region's fertile soil and warm climate. Locals enjoy these olives with tapas or in salads and numerous other dishes. Another well-known and commonly eaten food of Andalusia is Gazpacho. Gazpacho is a cold tomato soup with bread crumbs, garlic, olive oil, raw cucumbers and peppers. The people

of Andalusia often serve this refreshing dish in the spring and summer as a lunch starter before the main entree. The north-African roots in Andalusian gastronomy are also evident in the region's kebabs. Cities like Cordoba, Seville and Granada were once Moorish bastions, and numerous kebab shops can be found easily. There are two kinds of kebab. The doner kebab consists of pita bread, vegetables, spices and lamb fresh off the spit. There are also traditional shish kebabs made from lamb and chicken. Andalusian Shish kebabs are simply skewered chunks of meat that have been grilled with a dash of olive oil and spice. Included in your “no gimmick” price are 11 excursions, 4 UNESCO sites, 6 cultural exchanges, 10 night in outside staterooms, 2 nights in Granada and 1 night in Malaga. Twenty nine meals with complimentary free-flow beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee, tea and spirits will include regional Andalusian specialties, a Welcome Gala Dinner and a Flamenco Dinner Show. “One of the added bonuses for our travelers as they participate on their free excursions is the state-of-the-art audio head-sets. No more straining to hear the guide. In fact, I like to wander around taking photos while I listen to the information on the headset”, relates Sweetwater. Unlike many tours where every excursion, drinks and tips for all the cruise personnel are added to your bill at the end of the trip, with Tom Harper River Journeys, all port charges and gratuities are also included. When you purchase your airfare from Tom Harper, your airport transfers, taxes, fees and fuel charges are also in the price. Complimentary wi-fi on board the MS La Belle de Calix also eliminates those global fees. Sweetwater also reminds travelers that “This is the most all-inclusive company that I have worked with and since the “extras” can double the cost of the trip, I find this rewarding.” Of the four UNESCO sites that the travelers will visit, the Alhambra in Granada will be the highlight for many. Sweetwater and Just Travel will host a familiarization night for anyone interested in the trip at their office in Lucianos at 351 Silver Street. For more information or to make your deposit, call Sweetwater 775-738-5770, 9343770 or Just Travel 775-738-9847 or email sarahsweet@ Sweetwater will also be offering a pretrip class for those who are traveling with her on packing tips and information about the art, architecture and cultural aspects of the trip.

! s ie r o m e M e h t r fo s k Than Yes the rumors are true; What 2 Wear will be closing the doors this month. My staff and I will miss all of our loyal customers and meeting new friends along the way. We have treasured our time together and being a part of the Downtown Elko family. Over the past 7 years (where did the time go) we have made so many great memories and have been a part of some fantastic events. The first week we opened we were flooded with love and support. We received a garden full of flowers and many notes of encouragement. The people of Elko really let us know they were happy we were here. We could feel the love and support. One of our favorite stories to tell is the first week we were open we had the honor of dressing three generations in one family. This let us know that great fashions and quality products know no age. We have so many more memories from surprise birthday parties, to helping ladies dress their new bodies after weight loss or new babies and gently pushing peoples comfort zone to show them they could put a little trend and sass in their wardrobes and have some fun doing it! Then there were the Wine Walks and other store events; We are a group that loves to have fun, whether we are dressing up as martini girls from the 60’s or making sugar cookies that look like a bikinis for wine walks. If it is not going to be fun why do it? All of our in store events had great turn outs and were so much fun. People had a chance to relax and catch up with friends and if they found a few things to add to their closet even better. I think that people that came into What 2 Wear could tell we were not here to sell them something but to help them find what they needed or wanted. Many times if we did not have something to fit their needs we would send them in the directions we thought they might find it. All of that is part of small town charm. You were our neighbors, family and friends. Our goal was for you to leave a little happier than when you came in. We are going to cherish our memories from the last seven years and hold them close. We humbly say Thank you for all the support you have shown us. We loved how our customers made us part of their lives and they became a part of ours. Small towns are great and Elko is one of the best. In closing I would like to say; I know you have a choice where to shop and spend your money. With our hectic schedules of work, kids, family obligations and everyday life, convenience in shopping has become a priority.

As a cosmetologist in the beauty industry, people are constantly asking me "what beauty products are the best?" Which is exactly why I decided to make the leap and start carrying what I believe to be the * skin cancer foundation seal of recommendation * pharmaceutical grade minerals

best makeup line out there called Jane Iredale. When doing my research to find the best line to bring into this small town of Elko, what impressed me the most about this line is

* amazing coverage you can even wear swimming * wide range of products to fit anyone * foundations are multifunctional * no fillers which require minimal touch ups * certified cruelty free * perfect for someone with sensitive skin * truly the skin care makeup

I love how much pride Jane Iredale takes in her product to not only provide amazing products for her customers, but to make sure her partners that are promoting her product are very educated and on top of new trends and products coming into the beauty industry. They also take a lot of pride in what goes into their product. They will only put ingredients that are good for your face and body. Since our skin is the largest organ and what we put on it is aborted into our body, Jane makes sure that nothing in her product is harmful. You would be surprised how many 'harmful ingredients' are in a lot of makeup products.

If you would like to learn more about this amazing makeup line, call me to come in for a free consultation and we can discuss makeup products best fit your needs.

Our Good Neighbor for January is …


C ontributed by S habonya D utton of S tate F arm , written by K elsie C reamer

It is people like you that make the decision to stay positive, do the right thing, and lead by example. It isn’t always easy and sometimes it consumes your day, but community members like you who push on and choose to follow your heart are true role models. Our objective with the Nominate a Good Neighbor campaign was to give recognition where it was deserved. To remind people that although it may feel like everything around us is negative, the small positives outweigh it and everyday people like you choose to brighten the lives of other community members. Along with interviewing and writing our good neighbor article it has taught our office that no small deed goes unnoticed or unappreciated. The little gestures we do every day do matter. From community members constantly volunteering to local teachers, we have heard stories that made us cry, stories that empowered us, stories that made us want to help make a change, and stories that gave us hope. With a New Year finally here we can’t wait to continue this series.


january 2015 |

We have achieved what we set out to with the Nominate a Good Neighbor campaign and are proud to carry on. As a community we have proven that when we come together we can make anything happen. "What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone? How else can we put ourselves in harmonious relation with the great verities and consolations of the infinite and the eternal? And I avow my faith that we are marching towards better days. Humanity will not be cast down. We are going on swinging bravely forward along the grand high road and already behind the distant mountains is the promise of the sun."-Winston Churchill We wish you well this New Year and can’t wait to share our upcoming Good Neighbors. Remember you can email nominees to kelsie.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your resolutions and make 2014 an incredible year: Be honest. Choosing a resolution that is sentimental to you will help inspire you to keep going. Be realistic. Starting with smaller goals will make it more likely that you’ll succeed. Be specific. Setting an exact goal let’s you know when you’ve crossed the finish line! Be supported. Talk to your family, a friend, or me about your goals for encouragement along the way. We’re here to inspire you and support you in your journey. So, cheers to the new year and the new you! You can do it.

Stay Warm this Winter with these Energy- Saving Investments Contributed by Jesse James, Broker/Owner RE/MAX Gold

Do you need any new appliances, or are you planning to do some remodeling? Consider




suggestions before you purchase. Choose ENERGY STAR appliances and electronics. When buying new appliances, choose ENERGY STAR-certified models. For example, a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator uses about 20 percent less energy than a standard new refrigerator, and 46 percent less than one made in 1980. A new Energy StarÂŽ clothes washer uses nearly 50 percent less energy than a standard washer. Install a programmable thermostat. If you have a heat pump, select a model designed for heat pumps. Setback thermostats can save up to 15 percent on energy costs. Increase ceiling insulation. If your ceiling is uninsulated or scantily insulated, consider increasing your insulation to up to R-38 to reduce heating costs by 5 to 25 percent. Seal ducts. Leaking ductwork accounts for more than 25 to 30 percent of heating costs in an average California home. Consider hiring a contractor to test the tightness of your ducts and repair leaks and restrictions in your duct. Many utility companies have programs to assist you. High-efficiency windows. If you are planning to replace your windows, choosing ENERGY STAR windows can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 15 percent.

Cheers! Here's to a new year and to a NEW YOU!!! The holidays are behind you or are they sitting on your behind? EEEKK! Every year I get a crazy "resolution" in my head. "I will only eat baby spinach for the rest or my life"! Or, "from this day forward I will never eat sugar again. I stick to it for a couple of weeks and BOOM! I fall off that healthy wagon and never get back on. Now I feel like a failure so I eat sugar and ALOT of it. Its time for a change. Why not this year start out a little easier and set yourself up to succeed not fail.

Here are 3 VERY SIMPLE additions to your diet and everyday life.

Fill your tub with as hot as you can take it water. You want to sweat out your stressful, over whelming, hectic week. Now lay all the way back. Submerging as much of your body as you can. Close your eyes and think of nothing for 20 minutes.

*Please remember to stand up slowly and allow yourself to cool down in the shower.

So now that you have taken the time to put some good in your body and sweat the bad out any exercise or weight loss program you start will be that much more successful. We wish you healthy and hydrated 2015.

Cowboys at the Museum Our Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

If you are like most people, you love cowboys and stories about cowboys and pictures of cowboys. You can get your fill when Elko celebrates the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in January. Every year, in the middle of the winter, cowboys from all over the world get together to talk to each other about all sorts of things. Some of their stories are a little glamorized and romantic, but most of them tell it like it is, and many of them are put into verse or visual form, as in western art.

The best collection of cowboy art in the state is at the Northeastern Nevada Museum. In addition to the museum’s permanent collection of western art, featuring legendry artists of the past, there will be two exhibits of contemporary western photographers.

John Langmore John Langmore, from Texas, is a second-generation photographer of cowboys and ranch scenes. The photos for his current exhibit at the Northeastern

Nevada Museum, entitled Open Range: Big-Outfit Cowboys, have been taken on 12 of the country’s largest ranches. Each of these ranches plays host to the big-outfit cowboy, intent on living a traditional way of life in a modern world. John spent many of his younger years working on ranches, but then gave it up to pursue a career as an attorney. He eventually discovered a love of photography and with the combination of his early ranching experience and his photography experience, the show, Open Range was born. The photographs in his exhibit are taken on

The Museum of Modern Art in New York City recently bought one of Adam Jahiel’s photographs to add to their prestigious art collection. That same photo will be one of those on display at the Northeastern Nevada Museum during Cowboy Poetry.

Will James One of the most famous western artist and author of the past century is Will James. The museum is fortunate to have 54 pieces of his original art and a

signed first-edition of each of his 24 books. These were all donated by Don Frazier of Phoenix, Arizona and are in the permanent western art collection of the museum.

Edward Borein

John Langmore and Adam Jahiel will both be on hand to visit with attendees at the Art of the West Reception, which will be held on Friday, January 30, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the museum. There will be a no-host bar, hors d’oeuvres, and western music. Call 738-3418 for more information.

Edward Borein was a contemporary of Will James and is equally well known for his western art. The museum has 10 valuable pieces of his art, donated by the late Jack Rice, who lived in Elko County for many years.

The Great Basin Gear Show The Great Basin Gear Show, sponsored by J.M. Capriola’s and the Elko Convention and Visitors Authority, is also a part of the celebration at the museum. It features western gear – saddles, bits, spurs, braided rawhide, and many other articles, made by well-known western artisans.
