Texas Flavor

Salpicon This is a delicious meat salad that can actually be served hot or cold. 3 cups sliced or shredded leftover pot roast or roast beef 1/2 cup Vinaigrette 3/4 cup chopped green chiles or pablano or Anaheim peppers 1/4 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated 2 avacados, peeled and sliced Chopped fresh cilantro, to taste 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 chopped fresh jalapeno

Round Steak Rolls 2 lbs. round steak, cut 1/4 inch thick Salt and pepper, to taste 12 slices bacon 1 cup fine breadcrumbs 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup chopped fresh parsley 2 teaspoons basil 2 teaspoons oregano 1/4 cup olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced string for roll-ups

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. Texas Cowboy Cooking by Tom Perini (he owns the Perini Steak House in Buffalo Gap) not only has wonderful recipes, but he has also included tips for selecting different cuts of meat. The recipes aren’t fancy, but very Texas and filled with pages of personal touches as well as cowboy lore and wonderful photos. This is worth buying! And you will love everything from drinks and appetizers to main entrees and desserts with simple ingredients and instructions

Mix the beef with vinaigrette and marinate overnight. Top the beef with the chopped green chiles and cheese. Then layer with the avacado slices and sprinkle on the cilantro and chopped parsley and jalapeno. Serve chilled.

Cut round steak into 4 rectangular pieces and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Layer each piece with 1/4 of the bacon, breadcrumbs, cheese parsley, basil and oregano. Starting at the wide end, roll steak and tie with string. Heat oil in a skillet and saute garlic until lightly browned. Saute steak rolls for 5 minutes per side. Before serving, remove string and cut roll-ups into 1/2 inch slices and top with your favorite tomato sauce if you wish. Serve over pasta.

To serve warm, bake at 325 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until meat is thoroughly heated. Serves 16-20. Enjoy these recipes and many more in the great cookbook your family will love the new recipes!

Serves 6.

Sounds of excited school children filled the morning air at Heritage Park in the heart of downtown San Angelo. The city’s first-ever “pocket park,” which opened last fall, showcases the Concho Valley’s ranching impact and influence. From February to early May, approximately 700 fourth graders from 50 San Angelo ISD campuses will tour the park as part of Frontier Days which also includes stops at Ft. Concho and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. Under the expert tutelage of veteran educator and Heritage Park assistant Candis Hicks, young students, in tandem with integrated curriculum, will learn about the ranching influence on the “Wild West” town … along with a little help from Hank, the Cowdog. The popular character is part of author’s John Erickson’s adventure book and Ranch Life series. Located at the corner of Twohig and Oakes Streets, the unique respite for visitors, shoppers and families tells in sight and sound the story of San Angelo’s ancestral beginnings and encourages conservation of our most precious resources – namely water. According to local businessman and philanthropist Lee Pfluger, the park “is one more important enhancement to the heart of the city.” Pfluger, along with construction coordinator David Mazur, architect Henry Schmidt and a diverse committee of local artists, historians, horticulturists and patrons worked hand-in-hand to make the unused portion of a ½ city block into a striking oasis. In the 1990’s San Angelo was part of a Regional/Urban Design Assistance Team which first recommended the site improvement project. Team leader Frank Gray was on hand at the dedication and expressed his pleasure and pride at the opening. The lot was donated by the late businessman and community advocate J. Willis Johnson who also commissioned a life-size horse and rancher which is due to be placed on the park’s east side. Artist Scott Sustek is the sculptor. Another sculpture by artist Raul Ruiz is that of Hank, the Cowdog. The beloved character never fails to delight young visitors. While Heritage Park has been a private sector effort, ownership is vested with the San Angelo Area Foundation to assure perpetual permanency. Commemorative brick pavers have been sold along with private donations and grants to finance the project and ongoing educational programs. Visitors will be able to access a quick response (QR) code linked to a web page providing information about West Texas’ heritage. Historical presentations also will be linked to Angelo State University’s West Texas Collection and Library’s current projects and have the technical capabilities to expand or be upgraded.

Heritage Park Delights, Informs Visitors About Ranching Impact on San Angelo By Dee Lackey

Personal stories of two dozen area ranching families, West Texas history and conservation will feed into the educational loop. Among the influential pioneers being honored by family members include Joe Bean, John Caldwell, Dan Glass, J. Willis Johnson Sr., Johnston Foundation, W.C. Jones Sr., Phillip Lee, Sol Mayer, Double M Ranch, Joe and Mort Mertz and Elta Teola Murphey. Also, A.D. and Jess Neal, Ferdinand Noelke, August Pfluger, Bill Schneemann Jr., Virgil Powell, Tankersley Family, Joseph Tweedy, Lloyd Vincent, Theron Weatherby, Johanna Wilhelm and Wilson Family. As the school children leave their Heritage Park tour, what made impressions on them? Why Ferdinand Noelke had so many horses shot out from under him and how Johanna Wilhelm came to be known as the Sheep Queen of Texas of course! Come see for yourself, the park awaits your visit. It is a wonderful addition to our areas of interest in San Angelo and your children will appreciate the heritage of our community.

(Dee Lackey is a semi-retired journalist and long-time San Angeloan. She has enjoyed careers at West Texas Rehabilitation Center, Angelo State University and the San Angelo Standard-Times.

CURA Brazil is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established for the sole purpose of working with the disadvantaged in and around the small city of Itu, São Paulo, Brazil. This year we celebrate our 11th year of service. Our name, CURA, stands for Cuidado(care), Respeito(respect) and Amor(love). We strive to ensure that this is exemplified in everything we do. CURA Brazil began as a Christian medical outreach. We have provided care in the areas of: Gynecology, Dentistry, Ophthalmology, General Medicine, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Cardiology, Counseling, Lab testing, Ultrasound, EKG and general screening for diabetes and hypertension. Since our first efforts in 2009 we have grown considerably. This past year we partnered with Por Um Sorriso, a Brazilian nonprofit specializing in dental care. Through their efforts we have been able to double the number of people we serve. Their work is phenomenal. No dental problem is beyond them. When a client sits down in one of their chairs they do not leave until their mouth has been restored, up to and including implants. We look forward to working with them again this year. We have expanded our eye care with several Brazilian ophthalmologists joining our team. They perform complete eye exams for more accurate eyeglass prescriptions. We have been richly blessed with donated glasses through the years, but this year is special. Horizon Pharmaceuticals adopted us and held an eye glasses drive internationally, sending us 3 large boxes of glasses. A San Angelo ophthalmologist has kindly allowed us access to a lensometer that will enable us to accurately script the glasses for our patients. For the second year, we are partnering with Restoring Vision for our reading glasses needs, allowing us to fit more than 500 people with glasses during our one-week campaign. Health is influenced by so many factors, not the least of which is our living conditions. For the third year, we are reaching into the community to improve the daily lives of those we serve: installing proper flooring where there is only dirt, putting a roof over someone’s head, adding a kitchen where this is none, improving bathroom facilities, or installing a door or window where there is only a hole in the wall. We provide some of these services year-round, courtesy of our Brazilian coordinator, Bruno Ishikawa. As we look towards our campaign in July, we ask for volunteers willing to serve in any capacity. We are currently looking for Ultrasonographers, Optometrists, and anyone with construction skills. We are a non-denominational organization, requiring only that you adhere to our principles of Care, Respect and Love. If you are unable to serve with us this year, would you consider helping with a tax-deductible donation?

Babysitting rules Baby-sitting is a great way to earn money, help neighbors and gain some job experience. But it’s also a big responsibility to be in charge of someone else’s children in an unfamiliar home and it can be a bit scary. Here are some guidelines to help you be a first rate baby-sitter. Parents will also find this helpful when looking for or interviewing a prospective baby-sitter. Getting the Job Done * Baby-sit only for people you know or who have been referred by a friend. * When someone asks you to baby-sit, find out what time the parents expect to be back and tell them how much you charge and whether you have a curfew. Discuss how you’ll get there and back safely. * Leave the name, address, phone number of where you’ll be sitting along with what time you should be home with your parents or roommate. On the Job * Before the parents leave, have them write down the name, address and phone number of where they will be. You should also have phone numbers for the local police, fire control center, a neighbor or relative and the family doctor. * Be sure you know the locations of all phones in the home in case you need one quickly. If there is an alarm system, learn how to use it. * Know how to work the window and door locks in the house. Use them! Make sure the outside light is on. * Ask about smoke alarms and fire extinguishes. * Ask about the children’s bed times, favorite toys and stories, and what they eat. Check on food allergies or medication. Find out what you are allowed to eat and drink. * Be sure to clean up after the children and yourself. Wash dishes, cups and utensils that you use and put all toys back in the proper receptacles. * Get permission and instructions on using the TV, stereo and other appliances. * Don’t stay on the phone - your time should be focused on the children. * A friend should not come over to keep you company .

In an Emergency * If you suspect a fire, get the children and yourself out. Go to a neighbor’s and call the fire department. Then call your employer. * Stay calm. Children probably won’t panic if you don’t. * Consider earning your babysitting certification from the American Red Cross or another reputable organization. Special Tips for Daytime Baby-Sitters * If you have children out in the back yard, make sure the front door is locked...and vice-versa. * If you take the children for a walk or to the park, lock all the doors and windows before you leave. Be sure to take the keys and some change with you. * Never take the children to a deserted park or out alone after dark. Be wary of friendly strangers. * If anything seems unusual when you return to the home -- like a broken window, a screen ripped, a door ajar -- don’t go in. Go to a neighbor’s home or public phone and call the police. You can dial an 911 from any cell phone - even if it is locked. When the Job is Done * Tell your employer if anything unusual happened -- a strange phone call, noises, a stranger coming to the door. * Call your own parents or roommate to let them know if your employer is going to be late coming home. * Be sure you are escorted home if you didn’t drive there. If your employer cannot walk or drive you home, or if he or she seems intoxicated, ask someone from your family or a trusted friend to come for you. * If your employers are unreliable -- always late, often intoxicated, etc. -- Don’t sit for them anymore! Be creative and have fun making some extra money!!!

Diabetes and Your Heart By David Delaplane MD, Internal Medicine

A

s we welcome spring, now is an ideal time to focus on shedding extra pounds and commit to good eating habits and regular exercise to improve health. Maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce your risk of diabetes, which in turn will help your heart health. It is important to recognize that saying “diabetes runs in my family” or resigning yourself to a disease because of family genetics, ignores long-documented evidence of how your lifestyle impacts the development of diabetes. While genetics play a role, the development of abdominal obesity from eating habits and lack of exercise also “runs in families” and/or cultural practices, but you have control over these habits. The Center for Disease Control estimates more than 30 million Americans (9.4%) have diabetes and 84 million (34%) have prediabetes. Twenty-three million prediabetics are age 65 or older. Evidence suggests that many of these people will develop diabetes within the next five years. Sadly, the early disease process is quite insidious, and most people are without symptoms for some time. One study estimates at the time of diagnosis the average person has had blood sugar issues for seven years, and more than half have suffered some degree of organ damage. Like smoking and blood pressure,

diabetes is strongly associated with kidney disease, vascular disease of your limbs, and blindness. It is the leading cause of all of these issues, including the need for dialysis and limb amputation. The impact of high blood sugars and obesity also can lead to an earlier onset of heart disease—as early as age 30—and more severe forms of heart disease. Just having diabetes elevates your risk factors for heart attack to equal those of someone who already suffered a heart attack. In general people with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke, as well as up to six times greater risk of death from these events. Interventions like stents and heart bypass surgery are less effective at prolonging life with the disease, as

diabetes affects the very small blood vessels that penetrate the heart muscle as well as increasing blood clotting risk. The American Heart Association has concluded that as many as 75 percent of people with diabetes will ultimately die as a direct result of heart or vascular disease. Further, the higher your blood sugars and the longer you have the disease, the more the risk increases. Fortunately, you can make lifestyle changes to delay or prevent this disease. You should explore your options. Your physician can help educate you about the role of diet and carbohydrate intake, as well as help you design an exercise program to work on improving your lean body mass.

Children’s Bedtime Prayers Dear Father whom I cannot see, Smile down from Heaven on little me. May Angels through the darkness spread, their Holy Wings about my bed. And keep me safe because I am, the Heavenly Shepherd's little lamb. Lord, I have passed another day And come to thank Thee for Thy care. Forgive my faults in work or play And listen to my evening prayer. Thy favor gives me daily bread And friends, who all my wants supply: And safely now I rest my head, Preserved and guarded by Thine eye. Lord, send me sleep that I may live; The wrongs I've done this day forgive. Bless every deed and thought and word I've rightly done, or said, or heard. Bless relatives and friends always; Teach all the world to watch and pray. My thanks for all my blessings take And hear my prayer for Jesus' sake

God our father I come to say thank you for your love today thank you for my family and all the love you give to me guard me in the dark of night and in the morning send you light Angel of God, my Guardian dear, To whom God's love commits me here; Ever this day, be at my side To light and guard To rule and guide. God in heaven hear my prayer, keep me in thy loving care. Be my guide in all I do, Bless all those who love me too. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. See me safely through the night, And wake me with the morning light.

Texas Inmate Family Association is a statewide 501(c)(3) organi-

zation with a local chapter in San Angelo. This organization was established for families with incarcerated loved ones. It is to “strengthen families through support, education and advocacy.” We are trying to add to our membership and assist local families with information to assist in all of the above. It is extremely difficult for single parents who are required to raise children and also provide emotional and financial support to their loved ones. There are many parents struggling with the thought of the children they raised in a good home with strong values who made a bad decision and are paying the price. We try to offer support to ALL families regardless of the situation. Please plan on joining us!
