Halleck Bar Party What’s a Halleck Bar Party? You may not know what a Halleck Bar is? In fact, you might not even know what Halleck is? Lot’s of questions! Here’s the answers! Let’s start with the easiest one. What is Halleck?

This year’s Halleck Bar Party will be held on Friday, April 10, from 5:00 to 8:00. It will have an open bar, hors d’

oeuvres and desserts. A $20 donation is suggested and

everyone is welcome to come join the fun.

For questions about the Halleck Bar Party or any other events or exhibits at the Northeastern Nevada Museum call 775-7383418 or visit www.MuseumElko. org. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

Have you driven east out of Elko, on Interstate 80, headed for Twin Falls or Salt Lake City, about 20 miles out, there is an exit sign that says Halleck / Ruby Valley. Halleck is less than a mile from there toward the Ruby Mountains. In addition to State Route 229, which runs through it, headed for Ruby Valley, there are two train tracks, one for trains going west and the other for trains headed east. The Humboldt River also runs through it. The headquarters of a large ranch is situated in the middle of Halleck. It’s one of the coldest spots in Nevada in the winter and one of the most mosquitoinfested places in the summer. That’s about all there is to Halleck. In the early days of Nevada, even before it was Nevada, the emigrant trail ran through Halleck. It was likely a camping place for the weary travelers on the trail. The water in the river was high and fast-running in the spring, but by the time the overland travelers got there, it was usually autumn, the river had slowed to a snail’s pace, and it didn’t taste very good, but it was wet and welcome on the trail. Eventually ranchers settled in the area. 12 miles away was Fort Halleck, where several hundred army soldiers were also stationed. In 1869, the Central Pacific Railroad was built from California to Missouri and it went right through Halleck. It was a stopping place on the railroad. Between ranch hands, soldiers, and railroad workers, the little town boomed, soon there were hotels, restaurants, a general store, and of course, saloons – lots and lots of saloons. One bar had a large


clientele, so to add some class the owner ordered a nice wood bar and back-bar from a dealer in Salt Lake City, and had it shipped to Halleck on the train. There are many tall tales told about Halleck in its hey-day. Like most good things, it didn’t last forever. Soon, only the ranches remained. Eventually, most of the businesses closed, and one day, the saloon with the fancy bar also closed its doors. The building sat empty for many years. One day a couple of local ranchers realized that the building wasn’t going to last forever, and when it collapsed, the bar would not survive. Before it was too late, they lovingly restored it, and in 1967, donated it to the new Northeastern Nevada Museum in near-by Elko.

Halleck Bar Party APRIL

10 5-8PM

Open Bar, Hors d’oeuvres & Desserts Suggested Donation $20/person Northeastern Nevada Museum 1515 Idaho Street, Elko 775-738-3418 | MuseumElko.org

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

There were some stipulations that went with the donation though. The museum could keep it as long as a party was held every year to celebrate the bar and the rich western culture of Northeastern Nevada. Since Beefeater Gin was the men’s drink of choice, they also stipulated it must be served over the bar during the party. So now you know what Halleck is and what the Halleck Bar is. Are you beginning to see what this all means? The annual party became known as the Halleck Bar Party! It has become the best annual cocktail party in Elko. Friends gather to renew acquaintances and celebrate our great community. A toast, to the descendants of the bars donors’ is the highlight of the evening. Of course, the drink of choice is Beefeater Gin. If you’ve never been to a Halleck Bar Party, don’t miss your chance this year to participate in this time-honored tradition, and join others in a salute to the rich history and culture of Northeastern Nevada. This year there will be a new signature cocktail with Beefeater Gin named the General Halleck in a commemorative glass available to party goers.

Hours: 9-5 M-F, 9-3 sat financing available oac.

We love the distinctive tastes found in Indian food! From saucy dishes with vegetables and chunks of meat, to steaming hot griddle breads, we relish every bite when we're dining out. If only we could translate some of these flavors into our own kitchen . . . .

• • • What is Curry? It’s postulated that the term “curry” is the Westernized version of the Tamil word, kari, for “sauce.” As the British empire spread throughout Asia, the desire to bring home the flavors of East India accompanied them. Spices and blended powders assembled for travel home became known as “curry powders.”

Say “Curry,” and, most likely, very specific favorites come to mind. But, in fact, “curry” is a highly generic term. It’s like a Westerner saying “casserole.” We would never equate a tuna noodle casserole with a sweet bread pudding, yet they both fall into the category of “casserole.” Similarly, curries cover a lot of territory across South Asia cuisines. A curry


dish might contain meat, poultry, seafood, or be totally vegetarian. What connects curries is the notion of a spiced sauce varying from mild to hot. The complex blend of spices in curries and curry powders are highly specific to distinct regions. No less than three dozen areas of India have been identified as having unique cuisines. Curry components may even vary between families. Many curry blends have at their core, chiles, coriander, cumin, and turmeric. From there, dozens of other spice and herb choices contribute to each curry’s uniqueness.

• • • What is Masala? “Masala” is another frequent term on Indian menus, and a chickpea version is featured here. While “curry” refers to the entire dish, “masala” refers to a blend of spices.

• • • What is Garam Masala? The term “garam” means “warm,” therefore refers to a warm (or hot) spice blend. The heat may come from chiles, but also from cinnamon, cloves, peppercorns, cumin, and cardamom.

How the spices are prepared and when they are added to a dish offer another layer of taste nuance. Spices may be whole or ground, toasted or raw, wet or dry, or added early or late – each strategy releases a unique flavor layer to the final dish. Herein lies the art form of Indian cuisine. (Don’t worry, just follow the recipe instructions!). While the term “curry” roughly translates as “sauce,” curry dishes may actually be wet or dry in character. A “wet” curry maintains a more saucy, liquid character when served thanks to the cream, coconut milk, or butter, while a “dry” curry refers to preparations where the cooking sauce evaporates and the spices form a coating or crust on the meat or vegetables.

A favorite dish, this easy curry is a great place to start on our culinary exploration of Indian food – after all, everyone likes chicken! And, who couldn’t use a new way to make chicken? This recipe demonstrates the three-step sequence used for making many curries. A base of aromatics (onion, garlic, and ginger) starts the process, a gaggle of spices are blended and bloomed, and saucy ingredients (tomato and half-n-half in this version)

Ultimate Chicken Curry

complete the base. The chicken steeps in the sauce, gathers the spicy flavors, and is ready to serve in mere minutes. What a delicious meal!

Ultimate Chicken Curry

Tamatar Murghi, Serves 4 We Indians are very opinionated about everything. You mention a particular dish and chances are that someone’s mother or grandmother has the best recipe and you can’t argue with them on its validity, because they are defending the recipe of their nearest and dearest. Neither my mom, nor my grandma could or would address this bird in their strict Brahmin vegetarian kitchen, so I took it upon myself to offer you a version that I think not only delivers a succulent dish but does so with few ingredients and some key cooking techniques. I trust it will leave you in that Oliver Twist predicament of asking for more. No worries, you will not be chastised, at least not at my table. Serve curries, such as this one, with some flatbread (either homemade All-Wheat Griddle Breads, or store-bought) and steamed rice (or a rice pilaf ) to soak up all that creamy sauce vibrant with spices.

2 tablespoons canola oil 1 small onion, coarsely chopped 4 medium-size cloves garlic, coarsely chopped 4 pieces fresh ginger, coarsely chopped (each about the size and thickness of a 25-cent coin; no need to peel the skin) 2 teaspoons Raghavan’s Blend 1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes with their juices 1/2 cup half-and-half 1-1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch cubes 1 teaspoon coarse kosher or sea salt 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems


Vegetarian cooking thrives as an important

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over mediumhigh heat. Once the oil appears to shimmer, add the onion, garlic, and ginger, and stir-fry until the onion is light caramel brown around the edges, 4 to 5 minutes.

2. Sprinkle the spice blend into the skillet and stir to mix. Let the spices roast in the onion medley until the aromas dramatically change, 10 seconds. Pour in the tomatoes and stir once or twice. Lower the heat and simmer the chunky sauce, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tomato pieces soften, the excess moisture evaporates, and some of the oils in the spices start to dot the edge of the sauce, 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Pour the half-and-half into the skillet and scrape the bottom once or twice to release any bits of onion, garlic, and ginger, effectively deglazing the skillet and releasing those flavors back into the sauce. Transfer the chunky curry to a blender. Holding the lid down, puree the curry until it is slightly curdled looking but smooth, and saffron orange-hued.

4. Return the sauce to the skillet and stir in the chicken and salt. Simmer the curry, covered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the chicken, when cut with a fork or knife, is cooked through, no longer pinkish-red, and its juice run clear, 12 to 15 minutes. 5. Sprinkle the cilantro on top of the chicken curry and serve.

Spice Blend This recipe illustrates a spice blend assembled by our featured author – one of many that one might use in Indian Cooking. It includes spices that are easily found at an American grocery store. This simple 7-spice blend does an amazing job of infusing Indian flavors into any number of dishes.

component of Indian cuisine and Chana Masala is a favorite for many. Chickpeas are a proteinpacked legume that soak up the sauce’s many flavors. While this curry uses a similar three step process – aromatics, spices, then liquids – it differs in that the raw ingredients are first combined, pureed, then the sautéing and blooming of spices begins. With a little simmering, the chickpeas bathe is the many flavors and turn a few simple vegetables into something that’s quite phenomenal. We enjoyed this chana masala Indian-style with torn pieces of fresh naan to scoop up the chickpeas and their spicy gravy.

Papadum: More in the appetizer category, these thin, cracker-like wafers are made with legume flour, spiked with spices, and fried to crispness. A great way to start a meal.

Chapati: These griddle breads are sometimes known as “roti” and are formed from unleavened whole wheat flour, water and ghee. Small balls of dough are rolled to a thin thickness and cooked on the griddle in just a few minute, and with one flip. Pieces of chapatti are torn with the right hand and used, utensil-like, to scoop up curries and other Indian dishes.

Assemble your custom spice mix, then

Grind to Combine… If assembling and grinding your own spice blend is a step too far, our featured author recommends (with no judgment attached) choosing a Madras-style curry powder.

Puri: Prepared similarly to a chapatti, puri are deep-fried instead of cooked on a griddle. The breads puff in the oil, (thanks to the trapped steam inside), and form a dramatic balloon-like shaped bread. Served like chapatis, they’re incredibly enjoyable when served fresh and hot.

Naan: These flatbreads are leavened (baking powder or yeast), and resemble pita bread in some ways. The rolled dough rounds are traditionally baked in a tandoor, a high temperature clay oven, but a grill or oven baking stone can also be employed. In just a couple of minutes, the thin dough rounds cook into soft, bubbly flatbreads. Naan are traditionally brushed with ghee to keep them soft and for the wonderful added flavor.

Basmati Rice: This deliciously fragrant rice accompanies many Indian dishes. It’s a longgrain rice that cooks to a fluffy character with each grain retaining its individualness. It possesses an alluring aroma while steaming, and a nutty flavor when eaten. Graciously absorbing the flavorful sauces, each forkful of rice is a sensory delight in texture and flavor.

Sassy Chickpea Curry 1 small onion, coarsely chopped 4 pieces fresh ginger (each about the size and thickness of a 25-cent coin; no need to peel the skin) 2 large cloves garlic 2 fresh green Serrano chiles, stems discarded, coarsely chopped (do not remove the seeds) 1 tablespoon coriander seeds 2 teaspoons cumin seeds 2 tablespoons canola oil

Sassy Chickpea Curry

Chana Masala, Makes 4 cups; serves 4 A staple in north Indian restaurant menus across the world, this chickpea classic, called chana masala, raises the humble chickpeas, also referred to as garbanzo beans, to a level that commands a respectable devotion on account of the vibrancy in every morsel. Hearty, comforting, and redolent of just two fresh-bruised whole spices, the combination works with some store-bought flatbread or homemade All Wheat Griddle Breads or plain steamed white rice.

MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

1 cup canned diced tomatoes with their juices 1-1/2 teaspoons coarse kosher or sea salt 2 cans (about 15 ounces each) chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1. Place the onion, ginger, garlic, chiles, coriander, and cumin in a food processor. Using the pulsing action, mince these ingredients to create a pungent and aromatic blend. The spices will look bruised but still be fairly whole. Letting


the processor run constantly instead of using quick pulses will create an undesired watery and coarse puree.

2. Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil appears to shimmer, scrape the processor bowl’s contents into the pan and stir-fry until bits of onion, spice, and some of the overall good schmutz browns and sticks to the bottom of the pan, about 15 minutes. 3. Stir in the tomatoes with their juices and the salt, scraping the bottom of the pan to release the bits of onion and spices, effectively deglazing the pan and releasing those flavors back into the sauce.

4. Pour in 1 cup of water and add the chickpeas, giving the curry a few stirs. Once the sauce comes to a rolling boil reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and let the chickpeas simmer, stirring occasionally, until the curry sauce slightly thickens, about 15 minutes. Serve the curry warm.

Naan

While basmati rice is a totally acceptable way to enjoy any curry, we also love to serve them with some form of Indian bread – chapatis, puris, or naan. We’ve tried a lot of naan recipes in search of an adequate replication of our favorite restaurant’s naan, and this one is the best one yet! The dough is easy to mix and requires no yeast or proofing step. After it rests for thirty minutes, it’s a cinch to roll out to the right thickness.

We used a baking stone in a very hot oven to bake our naan. In just a couple of minutes, the rounds bubbled and browned to steamy perfection. A swipe of ghee added the last flavor layer. Have your curry ready and warm, and eat the naan fresh from the oven.

•••

What is Ghee?

While perhaps an unfamiliar word, ghee is merely clarified butter with a hint of nuttiness cooked in. Regular butter has three components: butterfat, milk solids, and water. The latter two ingredients may cause butter to become rancid quickly without refrigeration. Through the clarification process, the milk solids and water are removed leaving just the butterfat. The butterfat is stable at room temperature eliminating the need for refrigeration.

Makes 4 naan (each about 8 inches in diameter) Naan is northern India’s classic flatbread. The dough is effortless and requires no rising time because of the absence of yeast. Naan is usually baked on the inner walls of a high-temperature, clay-lined oven called a tandoor. Here is my grilled version, so no need for a tandoor. (see Extra Credit for an oven version). Crispy, chewy, tender, and toothsome, these are perfect for single servings.

Through the clarification process, ghee retains all of butter’s great flavors and adds another, nuttytasting flavor akin to browned butter. The result is a product that has many delicious uses outside of Indian cooking – you’ll love getting familiar with it.

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus additional for rolling out the dough

1 | Melt unsalted butter over low heat.

Ghee, for the finished naan

2 | Keep over low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the milk solids drop to the bottom and begin to brown, and any water has evaporated. 3 | Strain the melted butter through cheesecloth into a container. 4 | Allow the ghee to cool before capping to reduce any chance of water condensing on the oil.

Naan

MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon coarse kosher or sea salt, plus extra for sprinkling 1 large egg, slightly beaten Canola oil for brushing the dough

1. Thoroughly combine the flour, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. 2. Pour the beaten egg over the flour mixture and quickly stir it in. The flour will still be very dry, with a few wet spots.


3. Pour 1 cup of warm tap water into a measuring cup. Drizzle a few tablespoons of the water over the flour mixture, stirring (you can use your hand – as long as it’s clean, I think it’s the best tool) it in as you drizzle. Repeat with a few more tablespoons of water until a soft, slightly sticky – but manageable – dough ball is formed. Watch the dough carefully; you don’t want it so sticky you have to add more flour to make it workable.

4. If you used your hand to make the dough, it will be caked with floury clumps. Scrape the clumps back into the bowl. Wash and dry your hands thoroughly, then knead the dough. (You’ll get a much better feel for the dough’s consistency with dry hands.) To knead the dough, dust your hands lightly with flour. Knead the dough to form a smooth, soft ball, 1 to 2 minutes.

5. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Lightly grease a plate with oil. Shape one portion into a round resembling a hamburger bun and put it on the plate. Repeat with the remaining dough. 6. Brush the tops of the dough rounds with oil, cover them with plastic wrap or a slightly dampened cloth, and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Allowing the dough to rest softens the gluten that has formed as you knead the dough. Gluten is what gives bread its structure, and when just formed, it has a tendency to spring back into a tightness, making it difficult to roll the dough.

7. Place a pizza stone or unglazed pottery tiles on a grill rack. If you are using a gas grill, preheat it to the highest heat setting. If you are using a charcoal grill, build an intensely hot fire so the charcoal turns ash-white and red-hot. The temperature should hover between 600° and 700°F. (See Extra Credit below for conventional oven baking instructions.)

8. Tear of a large piece of aluminum foil, fold it in half, and set it aside.

9. Lightly flour a small work area near the grill and place a dough ball on it. Press it down to form a patty.

Roll the patty out to form a round roughly 3 to 5 inches [Editor’s Note: roll to 6-7-inches] in diameter, dusting it with flour as needed. Make sure the round is evenly thin, with no tears on the surface. Sprinkle a little coarse salt over the top, and gently press it into the dough. Lift the round and flip it salt side down, onto the hot pizza stone. Within seconds, the dough will start to bubble in spots. Cover the grill and cook until the dough turns crispy brown on the underside and the top acquires light brown patches, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove it from the stone, liberally brush the top with ghee, and slide it between the layers of foil to keep it warm.

10. Repeat with the remaining dough rounds, stacking them on top of the previously grilled naans.

Cookbook Review

Indian cooking unfolded: a master class in Indian cooking, with 100 easy recipes using 10 ingredients or less by Raghavan Iyer. Copyright 2013. Published by Workman Publishing, New York, NY. So often, Indian cooking presentations have a complexity that, while authentic, become overwhelming and intimidating. This book solves the conundrum with its step-by-step teaching approach. Mr. Iyer has distilled the key flavors of his (and our) favorites and simplified them into something any novice cook can feel confident in approaching. He’s limited himself to just ten ingredients in his recipes – something that can easily fit the time and attention span of a busy weeknight cook. His reputation as an awardwinning instructor is evident throughout his book. He takes each topic from the beginning and methodically explains each step along with a generous amount of how-to photography. His offering includes many Indian cooking basics, appetizers, breads, soups, salads, entrees (both vegetarian and meat-based), sides, and a few “sweet endings,” Indian style. Whether accomplished or new to Indian cooking, you’ll enjoy this instructive book!

employees, who work diligently to grow the success of Downtown Elko as a shopping, dining, and event destination. Supported by member’s fees and event proceeds, the DBA has helped place garbage cans, benches, decorative banners and holiday lighting, trees and flower barrels to name a few tangible services. Summer Wine Walks and the Snowflake Festival are the highlight of DBA sponsored events. These events are typically held on the second Saturday of the Month, with the first main event of the year, the Art Walk, starting in May. Other events include the Margarita Walk, Pumpkin Cook-off and Holiday preview and the Farmer’s Market. These events help reinforce a sense of community, bring in much needed revenue to businesses and bring people together to enjoy what the Downtown has to offer. New to the list of events this year is the Cash Mob. A cash mob is a recent movement across the country that directly targets and helps small businesses. These mobs directly support local small businesses, giving them increased sales and exposure within our community.

think just a little bit deeper about money itself, and what a currency is supposed to do for society. Many people don’t realize how important supporting local businesses is to our overall economy. When you support local, the money stays in the community. That money gets circulated, supporting neighboring businesses and local non-profits, and acts as a clear economic benefit to the area. This is one of the easiest ways to energize the local economy. The Elko DBA will continue to support Downtown Elko through Shop Local campaigns, hosting a variety of events, encouraging new business development, raising consumer awareness and encouraging people to support the heart of Elko. By supporting the downtown business community, we ensure that Downtown Elko continues to grow, thrive and be our heart of Elko.

MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

I decided to search Elko for all that is Shabby Chic. Along the way I spoke to three different women with three different ideas and opinions about the Shabby Chic craze.


SHABBY CHIC Shabby chic items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas. The style is imitated in faux painting using glaze or by painting then rubbing and sanding away the top coat to show the wood or base coats, known as “distressing” the finish of the furniture. Furniture pieces that are not genuine antiques are usually selected for their resemblance to older furniture styles, and may be reproduction furniture with a distressed finish. Elaborate furniture appliques depicting flower swags and garlands, cherubs, and other motifs may be added. Fabrics tend to be cottons and linens, with linen being particularly popular, inspired by old French linens. Pure whites, as well as ecrus and worn or bleached out pastel colors are favorites. Fabric is often stained with tea to give it the look of old fabric. Bleached and faded are terms often applied to the style. Vintage floral patterns with pastel colors, cotton ticking patterns, or linen in earth tones, are all typical of shabby chic style. Antique pieces such as pie safes and jelly cupboards are popular in shabby chic décor. Besides white, the shabby chic style also includes soft neutral colors such as sky blue, rose pink and beige tones. HOW TO MODERNIZE IT | Think heavy metals or mirrored surfaces | Wood and galvanized pots and bins | Studs and grommets are easy to add to any decor that you a want to be more masculine.

CHIC UNIQUE & ANTIQUE

So my first stop is the most obvious one when looking for something old go to a vintage store. I choose Chic Unique & Antique. Located at 608 Commercial Street. Chic Unique is a new store to ELKO, they just celebrated their one year anniversary! The minute you walk in you feel like you are in a Pinterest board full of Shabby Chic items. The store is a collaboration of many different vendors under one roof. One of those vendors is Teresa Murphy. Teresa has a corner of the store stuff with everything from metal stars, old windows and doors, to cute signs and jewelry. When I asked her to describe her home decor to me she answered, “My home is the story of my life. It’s bright, cheery and warm.” She also told me that the greatest compliment she’s ever got about her home was from a friend that said, “All I want to do is get on the couch and curl up” Teresa must haves for any room in turquoise, happy, bright and red. She loves having things that have a special meaning or story behind them. I asked her how she does SHABBY CHIC “Look at things differently. Pull textures and patterns that you wouldn’t think go together and then add hues of colors and create dimensions.” For example: an old or made to look old table painted white legs with wood top. Mis match the chairs in the room and then add a cow hide or even leopard as accent. You can keep the room bright and stark white and ivory or splash some color around with yellows or grey. When shopping at Chic Unique give yourself plenty of time to search around. There is usually only one of something here and you want to be the first to find it!

REAL DEALS

Our quest continues on to a REAL hot spot in Elko! Real Deals will be celebrating their 3 year anniversary in April. When I stopped in I had a chance to speak with Stacy Fuchs the owner. When I asked her to clue me in on what’s happening in home decor she told me, “There are two types of people that come here. The stark white traditional theme decor with accents of wood and metals. Or the pop of color person who wants the unexpected and fun space.” Both of these people can have a SHABBY CHIC space! Real Deals is the perfect place to find you inspiration. Stacy tells me that home decor is very Pinterest driven right now. Many people come in after seeing something on Pinterest. They first ask her if she has it now or can she order it! What I love about Real Deals is they create “Pinterest Boards” all around the store. They gather and group things together so you don’t have to. Often times you will find a group of items together that you love but would have never put together yourself. I asked Stacy what are a couple of must haves for right now and what can we look forward too in the months to come. Happening right now: Metal signs and especially letter & Wood 3 dimension letters Signs are huge right now and not going away anytime soon. The most popular signs will have a quote or saying that we remember from childhood. Examples: “ Rise and Shine” or “You are my Sunshine” any feeling of nostalgia is very popular. Almost like your memories or feelings are becoming your decor. What’s to come and what has been over done: Chevron is OUT(boohoo it was one of my favorites), Antlers (darn, another favorite) is out, This I LOVE - Chalk board paint is out BUT butchers paper is IN. Zebra is OUT. And the cows came home. COWHIDE chairs are a must have. Dark wood is done. Bring on the light and almost white wood. Now what’s IN: Houndstooth patterns and not just in black and white, Galvanized metals, Lighted letters and signs,Navy will be in and dark yellows and dark salmon hues.

PETITE LA VIE

So now you have an awesome start to your new bright beautiful room. But, something is still missing. You can’t find it anywhere and you can’t make it yourself. It’s time for CUSTOM! I know what you think when you here the word “custom”. You think “expensive”. Give me the chance to prove you wrong. I would like to introduce Michelle Strozzi owner of Petite La Vie. I came across Petite La Vie on facebook. She had a adorable sign that I couldn’t live with out and was perfect for that blank space on the wall. I was ready to give her my arm or leg but then she told me the price! I was shocked. She makes one of kind custom signs for the same price that you would pay at a huge box store! I had to sit down with Michelle and include her in my quest for a new SHABBY CHIC room. Michelle started out making decor for her own home to save money. She quickly found out that she could also make money. Her first projects were made from pallets and old fence boards and given to family members. Then, quickly she was being asked if she could make a sign that someone saw on Pinterest. When you call Michelle or message her on Facebook she will askWhat are your favorite colors, What size, What do you want the font to look like. She will then send you pics as your project progress. She does everything herself from start to finish. A project can take a week to 10 days to finish (weather permitting). Some of her favorite projects have been signs made from scrap wood! The scrap wood signs are selling so fast she has to cut wood to have a scrap wood pile!

I HOPE YOU FEEL INSPIRED AND NOW WANT TO CREATE A NEW STYLE FOR YOUR SPACE. I ALSO HOPE THAT THIS IS A GUIDE TO HELP YOU SHOP LOCAL AND SEE THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO LEAVE TOWN TO FIND SOMETHING ORIGINAL AND PERFECT FOR

When I asked her what was popular now she said: Scrap wood stars both with and without writing. Signs for boys rooms ex: “Little boys are super heroes in disguise” or nursery rhyme signs. Any sign about “Love” and being “Together” Also I asked about colors, She replied “I’m often asked for any grey background and lettering done in Turquoise or yellow”. She also told me that not every sign is the same and that’s how she likes it. You can show her a picture and she will make it how ever you want it but will always ask how can we make it more your style.

YOUR HOME. EVEN IF SHABBY CHIC IS NOT A LOOK THAT YOU WANT THE STORES AND LADIES THAT I LISTED CAN HELP YOU CREATE YOUR OWN STYLE FOR YOUR HOME.

American Robins CONTRIBUTED BY LOIS PORTS, BRISTLECONE AUDUBON CHAPTER

When was the last time you saw a Robin? Some people see the return of robins as a harbinger of spring. The majority of robins do move around but not necessarily to the south. They migrate more in response to food than to temperature and changing amount of daylight. They sometimes never leave their breeding grounds. They primarily switch their behaviors in response to food. In the spring and summer the birds forage on the ground for soil invertebrates such as worms and for insects. In the fall as these food become unavailable they switch to a diet of mainly fruit. Their patterns of movement (migration) are poorly understood. Their numbers in particular areas vary from year to year. As the winter temperatures get colder the robins need more food. Robins will move here and there looking for the fruit they need to survive. If all the robins stayed in their breeding areas there would not be enough food available. The majority of our winter robins are coming from areas further north such as the northern Rockies including southern areas of Canada.

For information about Bristlecone Audubon contact ports@frontiernet.net Our monthly meeting will be held on March 20, 2015 at Great Basin College in the EIT building room 208 at 6:30 p.m. The topic is Leave it to Beavers and how beavers can restore riparian habitat by providing a larger source of water for wildlife and ranchers. Everyone is welcome to attend.

These winter birds tend to be in mixed flocks with other species such as Cedar Waxwings. You might see a large group in your neighborhood foraging on the crab apples, juniper berries and other fruits. They literally will strip the trees bare of all fruit, then they will move into the next neighborhood that has fruit. It has been noted that many of the visiting winter robins tend to have a much brighter red breast and seem bigger than our breeding birds. There are seven subspecies of Robins and our winter visitors are likely a different subspecies. As the ground begins to thaw in the spring the robins will once again go in search of earthworms and insects. They will then head back to their breeding territories. The majority of the birds will wait until they are back on their breeding territory before the males start singing. The reason songs work well for defending territories is that male robins become stressed when they hear other robins sing. Instead of fighting they sing, people could learn from the birds.

So if you hear a robin singing be glad, for spring is here!

Denim is never, ever, ever going to be out style.

However the cut, style, color and condition of the denim is what comes and goes. I’ve noticed that worn out and holes in denim is trending now just as much as 30 years ago. So what do you do? Wait until you wear out the jeans yourself, or buy jeans made to look old and worn out? Well I don’t want to do either one of those! WHAT YOU WILL NEED- One or more pairs of jeans. I choose a skinny to make shorter and a boot cut to make slimmer and shorter. - Sand paper block - Cheese grater - Scissors - Tweezers - Marker WARNING: Please be careful with the cheese grater! I cut my pinkie which resulted in blood on my white jeans! No worries it came out.

ALLERGIES

Your body inappropriately perceives the allergen as a threat. Chiropractic care doesn’t treat allergies. So, why do so many people with allergies mention that they see improvement by receiving care in our practice? IT’S NOT THE POLLEN There are many signs of an allergic reaction. Itchy eyes. Runny nose. Sneezing. Skin rash. More serious reactions can include constricted air passageways, vomiting and even death. All this from a handful of peanuts, an encounter with a cat or microscopic grains of pollen in the air! If everyone reacted to these common substances, we could fix the blame squarely on the nut, dander, shellfish or pollen. But not everyone reacts. What is it?

INAPPROPRIATE THREAT Your nervous system is the master system that orchestrates your immune system, glandular system, respiratory system and every other system that reacts inappropriately to an allergen. Normally, these systems help you respond and adapt to the world around you. But suffering from uncontrollable sneezing around a house cat is probably an inappropriate reaction. If your nervous system isn’t working right, you don’t work right. So, rather than direct our attention to the countless potential allergens, we locate and reduce the disturbances we find to your nervous system.

Pretend that this bucket represents your capacity to adapt to the physical, emotional and chemical stresses of life. Every stressful encounter your body faces, fills up your bucket. If your bucket is already full and you encounter pollen, foods or other chemicals, your bucket overflows. When that happens, people say they’re having an allergic reaction. But what they’re really saying is, “I’ve lost my ability to adapt. My margin is used up.” CHIROPRACTIC: NERVOUS SYSTEM So, we don’t treat allergies. We look for ways to restore your ability to adapt to allergens by locating and reducing disturbances to your nervous system. Simple, really.

A FULL BUCKET How full is your adaptation bucket? Each of us was born with the capacity to withstand or adapt to stress. If we’re unable to deal with things we eat, breathe or come into contact with it may be because our margin to adapt is used up.

WE’D LOVE TO DISCUSS YOUR SPECIFIC ALLERGY ISSUE AND HOW CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP.

Each March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages Americans to return to the basics of healthful eating through National Nutrition Month®. This year’s theme, “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” encourages consumers to adopt a healthy lifestyle that is focused on consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices and incorporating daily exercise to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health. Healthy snacking can be part of a healthy diet. In fact, healthy snacks provide an energy boost for the mid-afternoon lull, prevent overeating at meals, and provide opportunities to eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Snacking helps keep metabolism moving, blood sugar more stable, and aids in weight management goals as eating several small meals and snacks per day can lead to weight loss.

Incorporating 150-180 minutes of moderate

BELOW ARE TIPS FOR HEALTHY SNACKING: » 

Plan your snacks. If you plan ahead for snacking and prepare healthy snacks at home before leaving the house you will be less likely to opt for the vending machines or convenience stores. This will take the edge off hunger and prevent overeating at the next meal. Snack ideas include fresh fruit, air-popped popcorn, whole-wheat crackers, dried fruit and nut mixes, almonds and fat-free yogurt.

» 

Make snack calories count. Use snack time as an opportunity to fill the gaps in your daily diet. Snack on foods that are nutrient dense including; fruits, vegetables, whole grains & low-fat dairy – foods that often lack in our diet.

» 

Go easy on the empty calories. Snacks that are high in calories, sugars, and added fats provide “empty calories” and minimal nutritional value. Examples include candy, chips, sodas, etc.

» 

Listen to your hunger cues. Snack only when you are hungry, not because you are bored, stressed, or angry. Many times we will regret what we eat if we are snacking out of emotion. Exercise, like going for a walk, can be a great alternate to eating out of emotion.

» 

Snack on sensible portions. As with planning ahead for what type of snack to bring, how much you pack is important too. Use single serve packets, small containers, or snack bags and measure out portion sizes. Do not eat directly from the package!

» 

Quench your thirst. Many times we think we are hungry but are actually thirsty. Try drinking water, low-fat or fat-free milk, or calorie free drinks instead. Try adding lemon, cucumber, or berries to your water and enjoy as a fruit infuser. Flavored drinks can be high in sugar, so make sure to check the label.

to vigorous intensity exercise each week as been connecting with better outcomes for weight management, diabetes control, and better overall health. Come visit the NNRH Booth at the Ruby Radio Health and Fitness Fair on March 14, 2015 to learn more about healthy eating.

homemade remedies

A home remedy that works! Combinations of

• cough syrup •

honey, lemon, and tea are age old remedies for soothing a cough or sore throat. Turns out there’s actually some science behind them; these old remedies can really work! What luck that they taste good, too--way better than those drug store cough syrups. Studies have shown that honey can calm a cough as well as, or even better than, overthe- counter cough medicines. Honey has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and can fight bacteria. Combine it with the nutrients in lemons & other citrus, herbs, and spices, and you’ve got a natural, delicious way to treat cold and flu symptoms. Blends of honey and citrus can be swallowed straight from a spoon or stirred into hot water or tea. The steam and warmth of hot tea and water are also soothing to sore throats and can relieve stuffiness. With this ever changing and crazy weather your body may be running on low. You don’t need to run to the pharmacy to help keep the grid at bay.

INGREDIENTS • Honey -- I used regular pure, unfiltered honey and buckwheat honey • Citrus -- lemons, limes, oranges, and clementines • Herbs -- fresh rosemary & mint • Spices -- ginger (fresh or dried/ ground), whole cloves, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom

Slice the citrus into rounds. Quarter the rounds of larger citrus like oranges, and half the rounds of limes, lemons, and clementines. Add half of the lemon slices, then half of the ginger, then half of the honey; give it a stir with a chopstick, table knife, or other long thin object. Move the lemon slices around to make sure the honey runs between them. Repeat with the remaining lemon, ginger, and honey; stir and top off with more honey, if needed, to fill the jar. This can be done in any size jar. I used half-pint. The jars should be approx. 3/4 full with citrus. This allows room for at least 1/2 cup of honey per jar. Hint for assembling prettier jars: place some of the lemon slices vertically down the sides of the jar so that full slices are visible from the outside. From thick to thin syrup. Within 3-4 hours the syrup is ready to use. The honey draws the juices out of the citrus, so give it a stir to combine the honey and juice. The result is that the thick honey transforms into a thin syrup consistency. If you prefer a thicker consistency, increase the ratio of honey to citrus in your jars.


• honey spice throat drops • INGREDIENTS: 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup butter 3-5 drops doTERRA *OnGuard Essential Oil

Put all the ingredients except OnGuard Essential Oil in a heavy pan and cook slowly over medium heat until it reaches the “hard crack stage.” Resist the urge to turn the heat up higher to speed up the process. It will burn unless you keep it on medium and check it often. Once you can drizzle a spoonful of the syrup into a cup of cold water and have it turn to brittle threads–take it off the heat immediately. Wait about 30 seconds to a minute and then add the OnGuard Essential Oil. Stir. Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of the candy into the middle until cool enough to handle. Working quickly pull and fold into strips and cut into mickle size pieces.

Shabonya Dutton’s Good Neighbor for March

Billie Jean Crawford B I L L I E WA S N O M I N AT E D B Y L A U R E N R O O VA A R T

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

“Billie is the director at hospice and has the kindest heart of anyone I know. She is a friend to everyone and is always there to give love and support. She is a magical woman!” Hospice is a non-profit organization that caters to the needs of families with dying loved ones and is all volunteer based. Billie is the director at hospice and her job is to meet with families, talk, give them emotional support and prepare them for what may follow. Billie arranges respite care from the volunteer to help care for dying people. She is in charge of volunteers, and organizing events such as their annual Souper bowl that helps raise money for their many costs. Billie started as a volunteer for hospice 17 years ago. When I called Lauren to let her know I was going to be interviewing Billie she said that I would immediately fall in love with Billie…she was right. There are very few people that you first meet and feel completely at ease around, Billie is one of those people. Within minutes of the interview I couldn’t help but feel utterly comfortable. Billie has this natural aura about her and you just get pulled in and feel safe. Four years ago Billie started “Grief Group” which she humbly says she could not do without hospice or volunteers. Grief Group focuses on kids and young adults ranging from 3-19. The groups are broken up into three clusters, ages 3-6 for the younger kids, 7-12 for pre-teens, and 13-19 for the Teenagers. Grief group focuses on creating an open friendly healing environment for children that have lost loved ones. It allows participants to share their experiences, how

they are healing and to share freely of their struggles. Billie has taken Grief Group into the local High schools and helps make the group easily accessible to teens in need of support and has also made grief group readily available for adults to meet and heal. Grief group is free to all that would like to attend. When Billie was young she lost her father and recalls how difficult it was and stated that the experience itself helps drive and fuel her passion. If you haven’t dealt with losing someone very close to you put yourself in one of the many family’s shoes, you are getting ready to say good bye to your loved one and on top of all of that stress you need to call other family members to let them know it’s time, you’re consoling everyone, trying to coordinate a million other things with care providers and trying to figure out how you are going to move forward yourself and although you don’t already want to start thinking about it…you have a funeral to plan. Sadly more often than not, family members are not notified in time that their loved one is approaching their last moments and do not get to receive the closure they so desperately need by saying their final good bye. ALL of these things are thoughts and obstacles a family deals with. These things are why Hospice exists and why the organization is so imperative. Billie expressed to me the true importance of Hospice and the vital roles it plays in the lives of families preparing and dealing with the loss of a loved one. They step in and assess what the family’s needs are initially and move forward working closely with home health and throughout counsel family members


and guide them. When families reach out to hospice, hospice coordinates everything to make the process easier although saying good bye is never easy.

“Our community has been very good to hospice.”

To put into perspective just how dedicated Billie is, she is on call 24/7 so any time a family is approaching a point where their loved one is ready to pass; Billie is there to help them along what she refers to as a “sacred time” Which it truly is. It is those last moments you cherish forever, that final moment where you say good bye and I love you an infinite amount of times.

are beautiful inside and out. Thank you for all that

“I get more from families than I give. I couldn’t do it without God; I am doing what I am meant to.” What Billie does is no easy task. She helps put the pieces back together and “acts as a spiritual guide”. She is completely selfless, and chooses daily to put others before herself. Billie is a huge advocate of Young Life and is very involved in the community and gives back as much as possible.

Billie you are the epitome of a Good Neighbor, you you do, the world could use more people like you.

Hospices annual Souper bowl is April 17th; all contributions go directly to hospice. SO what better way to give back?! It’s a wonderful event perfect for families or companies looking for a way for team members to bond. You can call (775) 778-0612 to buy tickets or a table you can also stop by their office at 1250 Lamoille Highway Suite 413.

If you are looking for ways to contribute to the community volunteers are always needed at hospice!

Calvary Baptist Church Turn! Turn! Turn! 50 years ago the American folk rock band The Byrds sang gold with this international song which holds the distinction as the No. 1 hit with the oldest lyrics taken almost verbatim from the Bible, Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3:1-8. The song was originally written as a plea for world peace during the Viet Nam war. During these past 50 years, wars have continued and you can turn to any newspaper, turn on any news channel or turn on your computer and you will be saddened by the evilness and crime that is so prevalent and rampant, not only in the generic term ‘the world’, but more personally in our local communities. At the same time, 50 years ago, a small band of believers gathered to establish Calvary Baptist Church in Elko. In the ensuing 50 years, those original 18 members have grown to a membership of 300+ believers who worship together, pray together, and fellowship together. It is our mission that Calvary Baptist Church is a welcoming place where those who are hurting can turn for comfort; those who are seeking can turn for answers; and those who have joy can in turn share their joy and happiness with others.

Please join Calvary Baptist Church at the corner of 5th & Walnut Streets on March 14 & 15, 2015 as we celebrate 50 years and turn towards the next 50 years!

On March 14th and 15th, Calvary Baptist Church will be celebrating 50 years in the Elko Community. The celebration will include a dinner on Saturday, March 14th at 5:30 pm followed by a program focusing on the history of our church. Sunday morning, March 15th at 10:00 am, we will have one worship service. We welcome the community to join us as our honored guests as we celebrate the past 50 years and the next 50 years! Child care will be provided for both events. We are so pleased to have Dr. Don Ledbetter and his wife Lois, who were the first shepherds of our church, join us and be one of our guest speakers. Under Pastor Ledbetter, the original church was built in 1966 and then in 1974 the expansion of the education building was built. After serving for 17 years, the Ledbetters were called to minister in Reno. John and Barbara Randolph were called in 1983 and they, too, served for 17 years. In 2001, Chris Cupples served as Senior Pastor for five years, along with his wife Amy. For the past 6 1/2 years, Dr. Sam Crouch and his wife Jan have been actively serving Calvary Baptist Church, providing leadership and love, not only to the flock of believers, but to the Elko community as well.

IGNITING CREATIVITY:

WE DO IT WITH MUSIC! Why is music important for young children? If more formal instruction doesn’t fit their learning style what is better? We’re not teaching children to play instruments when they’re this young so how do we help them enjoy music? And, why music? Is music more advantageous to young children than other disciplines? Music Together LLC and much research claims all children are musical. Is this true or is music ability an inborn special trait that some have but not all? How do very young children learn? Is it true that if a child studies music he’ll find math easier, too? What if children don’t become musical? Is it really much

of a loss? There’s so much else to do, not just music. Music education starts with very young children… as young as possible. Children before birth, still in the womb, are able to hear. Right after birth babies already recognize familiar voices of caregivers/ mothers/fathers they heard while in the womb, and anecdotal accounts of new babies report their response to music which was played while they were still in the womb.

Walking, language, and music are basic life skills. We expect our children to walk and speak our native language, and we should expect them to also become musical. Music, the ability to keep a beat, sing in tune, and take part in the music of our culture, is just as much a life skill as walking and talking. I haven’t yet run across parents able to tell me how they taught their children to walk or talk because we don’t teach our children; they learn by themselves by doing what they see and hear. America is a culture built around language so

SUSHI

children easily mimic what they hear and become fluent in language pretty early. If all children are musical why are so many adults in our culture unable to carry a tune and/or keep a rhythm? What happened? Many adults were not exposed as very young children to an environment rich in music so those areas in the brain set aside to be stimulated by music were used for some other purpose. Those neurons ready for music were pruned away and lost. We expose our children to music with a variety of tonalities and rhythms. When they see and hear parents/caregivers singing and dancing at home they see that adults love music so they copy that. The brains of very little children are programmed to respond during this “window” of development from birth to about age eight to store those patterns. Those pattern networks become thicker with consistent use and children become musically competent: that is, they can carry a tune and keep a rhythm.

Children listen and watch and, like small scientists, experiment with what they see and hear, what’s in their environment. They attempt, fall many times before they finally walk, but continue to get up, and soon walk on their own. In America today, though, few families sing and dance at home. Many adults would be hardpressed to sing one American folk song completely through. Many Americans don’t sing and many of us never dance around the kitchen just because we feel like it. Our children, consequently, grow up with few music role models. A young woman from South Africa in my Music Together class years ago commented that when she opened her front door in the morning in her country she heard singing as the locals headed out to work. Daily life in that country and

many others blends with music. We in America hear music in elevators and stores that we mostly ignore. What can we do at home to take advantage of that sensitive window for learning in the brains of our young ones? Our job as caregivers/parents is to expose our children to many experiences, provide diverse materials with which they can experiment, so I suggest as you listen to your favorite music sing along and encourage your children to sing. It’s important your chose music you love, not necessarily simple “children’s music.” Pick from any music you like. If you’re listening to music that bores you children will intuit your boredom and awkwardness. Haul out pots, pans,


and wooden sticks and get down on the kitchen floor to play, or make up silly movements and dance. Very young children (under the age of 8) love to be silly. When children sense you love music because they see you singing, they will love it, too. You do NOT have to carry a tune or keep rhythm correctly. Children do not care; your attitude is what is important. That’s what they’ll learn from you, the fun you have with it and with them.

I teach Music Together classes for children 5 years and under and a Caregiver/Parent, and Spring semester begins Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10:15 am April 7 and 8 and finish after ten classes in early June.

CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH WITH

j

FIBER ARTS

j

“WHEN FAMILIES APPEAR, SO DOES THE NEEDLE”

Pioneer women knitted socks, mittens and shawls. On the California Trail, quilts were carefully stored in trunks, or wrapped around emigrants during cold, spring nights. The California Trail Interpretive Center is recognizing Women’s History Month in March with programs focused on the fiber arts. The Trail Center is also presenting a temporary exhibit, “Plain and Fancy: Art of the Needle,” curated by Ellen Sue Blakey, of Thermopolis, Wyo., the California Trail Interpretive Center and the Ruby Mountain Fiber Folk. Needles, first made of bone, have been used for thousands of years to make clothing and blankets.

74

MARCH 2015 | EVERYTHINGELKO.COM

“If there is a symbol for women throughout the centuries of prerecorded history and recorded history, it is the needle,” said Blakey, director of the Wyoming Fiber Trails Project. “When families appear, so does the needle.” The fiber arts have changed since the days of your grandmother. Today, the quality and diversity of plant and animal fibers is unlimited. Silk, cotton, linen, wool, bamboo, buffalo hair, and other fibers are carded and spun into yarn. “Nevada fiber artists are creating beautiful, practical items, further bonding families and communities to the natural world,” said Park Ranger Alex Rose.


THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE: MARCH 7, 11:00 A.M. Needle Felting: Spring Flowers Learn how to needle felt, and create your own colorful, felted spring flower. Deb McFarlane will provide an introduction to needle felting. All materials provided. MARCH 7, 2:00 P.M. Art of the Needle: Embroidery Embroidery is complex, intricate and beautiful. Fiber artists will be on hand to show different types of embroidery, including crewel, cross stitch, needle point, black work, white work, Ukrainian embroidery, Belgian lace, Japanese Sashiko embroidery and more. Artists will also provide embroidery demonstrations. MARCH 8, 2:00 P.M. For the kids: Bear Tracks on My Bed What do bear tracks, turkey tracks and log cabins have in common? They are represented on quilts. Learn about pioneers by the patterns they left behind. Join Ranger Rose and create your own paper quilt block that represents life on the Trail.
