The Adams County Record Indian Valley & Mesa News Doris Baker attended the funeral services for Jimmy Nixon in MidVale. While there she was able to visit with many friends and have a special and heartfelt visit with Jimmy's mother. Over the weekend, granddaughter Kim Zolman, and her husband Eddie, came to visit from Riggins. They brought horses down to pasture, which makes Doris quite glad, as she will be able to see the family more often then usual as they come to tend their stock. On Monday, she welcomed a visit from son, Mark Briscoe of Council. Mark came to visit, but did quite a bit to help in weeding the garden and spreading out some black plastic to keep the weeds at bay. Tuesday, Larry Boehm and Bev Galloway headed to Boise for a hearing aide appointment for Larry. On the way home they stopped in Ontario for a physical therapy appointment for Bey. Wednesday, Bev kept a dentist appointment in Cambridge, and then stayed for lunch at the Senior Center, enjoying visits with many good friends. Thursday and Friday it was back to yard work and playing catch up for missing two days. Over the weekend, Bev's daughter, Janice Derouin, came from Boise to continue the project of staining her mom's house. They enjoyed hours of working together and visiting. Monday, Larry started to have family arrive from Californi and South Dakota who will be staying with him at his home for a few days this week. Jim and Lavonne Conner made a trip to Boise on Friday for an appointment at the VA for Jim. On the way home, they enjoyed a nice lunch at Chuck- a-rama. For most of the week, they enjoyed their garden and resting up from their company of the week previous. Wanna Belle Coriell kept busy all week long, but at weeks end realized that it was the watering the yard and garden, caring for animals and digging in the Thursday, July 5, 2012 Hard Green Brea,,l dirt that consumed all her time. She enjoyed having a visit from son, Dean, and granddaughter, Beth of Tooele, Utah over the weekend. Jill Doughton has been busy in the shop cooking up her delicious caramel corn to prepare for the 4th of July. She received an invitation to set up a vendor booth in Midvale during the festivities, so she and Jack are looking forward to a fun holiday. Jackie Dowdy put her cooking skills to use once again as she headed over to Marthetta Blakeley's to assist with the Inner City Slicker's program that was held over the weekend. Jackie was quite impressed with the program, the children and staff and really could feel the positive attitude and impact the program had on all. Jim and Patty Shaw enjoyed going fishing twice this week at the Mill Pond in Council. Patty caught her limit both times, making the time spent twice as fun. They are preparing for good friends to come to visit at the end of next week. Mary and Jenny Rininger are gearing up for Wednesday when Jenny will make her first official appearance for the Cambridge Royalty, appearing in the Midvale parade on the 4th. Mary and Jenny are both recuperating from back trouble, but hopefully are completely mended as they start this month. I still haven't heard that Mary has been doing cartwheels in downtown Indian Valley, but I'm waiting! Brian and Cyndi Bauer enjoyed having Cassie Bane and her baby, Reighley, of Missouri come and stay with them for a few days. Cassie alSO spent time with her sister in Payette while visiting. Daughter, Jessica, is off on an exciting adventure in Norway this past week. The parents of Anja, the foreign exchange student that the Bauer's housed last year, gifted Jessica with a-ticket. So while Jessica is off on an adventure of By Lynn a lifetime, Morn and Dad are home dog sitting and living vicariously through Jessica's emails. Celestino and Robin Juice have spent the past week doing nothing but swathing and baling their hay. Robin is looking forward to the 4th, when she is going to get to have grandma time solo with Iker and Arelly in McCall. non and Janet Meyer enjoyed having Janet's mother, Libby Squires, and sister Leigh Ann, come up from Boise to visit them this weekend. They enjoyed going around to more yard sales and spending lots of time visiting. The joke in the family this week was Leigh Ann had some Miracle Grow that had grown hard and clumpy. Libby used logic to fix the problem and placed a piece of bread in the container, like you would with hardened brown sugar. Leigh Ann was a bit shocked when she opened the container and found the hardened green bread, but admits that it did help out a bit Page 7 Leatherman -- 739-5756 and the mixture isn't going to waste now. Called in to the editor: The latest on Larry Boehm is that he was doing some woodwork and the saw decided to do some work on Larry's hand. When the stitches heal, hopefully he will be good as new. Joan Lakey and daughter, Julie - Harvey, practiced tandem missteps very recently. Joan was performing the treacherous task of loading her dishwasher and broke her ankle. As Don was driving her to the hospital, they stopped at Julie's. Julie decided to go along to comfort Mom. Stepping down from the ladder she was on at the time, she slipped and broke her elbow. Dons drive to the hospital suddenly became twice as productive. Both ladies had surgery, and we haven't heard how they are doing yet. We send our sympathies, and wish all concerned a speedy recovery. Garden -Corner I hope all of you had a wonderful Independence Day celebration of our freedom. This is a won- derful country we live in, especially Idaho, and more especially our little corner of Idaho. Support your local growers. The cherries are ripe at Brooke Orchards! I picked up 30 pounds of Kiona cherries last week, and I understand that the Bings are now ripe as well, picked or u-pick Oh! How I love cherries! Their taste is so sweet; their season is so short.

Sorry, you are not on my Christmas list, but here is the recipe: Select dark, shiny, ripe, flawless sweet cherries. Careful to leave the stem intact, wipe each cher- ry down with brandy. (I poured brandy into a shot glass and dipped them, then wiped them off.) Make sugar syrup in the following proportions: 1 cup water to 3 cups sugar. Heat until it begins to thicken. Allow the syrup to cool while you loosely pack the cherries into jars. (The recipe called for them to be stem-up, but by the time I got the jars full the stems were going every which way.) Combine 1 cup of syrup with 1 and cup of good brandy, and add 1/2 tsp real vanilla extract. Pour over the cherries to within inch of the top and cap the jar. You don't have to use canning jars, as you are not going to water- bath or pressure-can them. Any decorative jar will do. I used pint jars, and got eight pints from roughly 3 pounds of cherries. It took most of a large bottle of brandy. I made a double batch of sugar syrup but I had a lot left over, so one batch would probably have been enough. Since I've never done this before I can't guarantee the results, but I sure hope they turn out. They are just lovely in the jars. At Christmas time, carefully remove the cherries and retain the brandy syrup. Holding it by the stem, dip each cherry into melted choc- olate, set on wax paper until hardened (I'm sure Weiser Classic Candy can help you select the correct chocolate for this). Pour the brandy syrup over ice cream. Mmmmm. I have at least half a dozen artichokes on my two-year-old plant. WOOHO0! I jumped the gun a bit, picked and ate one that could have grown a little larger, but it was tight, nearly bug-free and very tasty; entirely up to the task of delivering may- onnaise to the mouth. I got a call from Harold Potter of Weiser, arid I'm so glad he called again. This was the man who called awhile back out of concern that I mis- took poison hemlock for wild carrot, but that time I failed to take down his name, and for some reason I thought he said he was from Council. I just can- not rely on my memory at all! Anyway, Harold said that my soil is probably "black clay;' and in order to grow blueberries I must acidify the soil. He told me to get some Espoma Soil Acidifier at Home Depot, which I did over the weekend. I am going out to apply it right now, so goodbye.
