Page 2 Wednesday, September 26, 2012 The Adams County Record Hai0000 What I learned from politicians Dear Editor, It has been an instructive week for me. Mr. Romney has explained to me that, as I make less then $250,000 a year, I am in the middle class. Mr. Ronmey has also said that since I support Barack Obama, I am a victim who takes no responsibility for my livelihood. I am a bit confused; I thought I worked over 40 years until I retired. Mr. Romney has also informed me, I pay no taxes! This point is really an eye opener for me, I ing about paying State and Federal taxes, but maybe my memory is failing. Rick Santorum has informed me that I am a smart person because I am not on the side of con- servatives. Thank you Mr. Santorum for the compli- ment, but again I am con- fused. I know some darn smart people who sup- port conservatives. Mr. Santorum, are conserva- tives smart or dumb? In 2009, according to Internal Revenue Service studies, those Americans seem to remember bitch- with adjusted gross income of more then $77 million paid no U.S. income tax, while 19,551 U.S. house- holds with income above $200,000 owed no U.S. or foreign income tax. I won- der how much income tax Mitt Romney paid in 2009. I will search out my tax returns and we can com- pare them. Maybe he did pay taxes, and I did not, and I will have to apolo- gize to him. Of course since Mitt Romney is almost a billionaire he should not have to pay any taxes. Comd;/ Dear Editor, One of the many benefits of living in our small, rural community is that when we need to call our local government offices, we get to talk to real, live people. Now it appears the upgrade Say it ain't so to the phone system at the county courthouse will deprive us of that simple pleasure. Really? In a coun- ty of fewer than 4000 peo- ple, we'll have to press i for the clerk, press 2 for the assessor, etc.? C'mon, man. We're not in Newark. Can't we have modern telecom- munications speed and old- fashioned human contact? a)/ r,,, Y_.;am Va/ly THE ADAMS COUNTY RECORD USPS: 005-120 Copyright 2012 The Adams Cotmty Record is published weekly at 108 Illinois Ave., " Council, Idaho 83612-000R by Adams County Record Publishing Co LLC., Lyle Sail, Publisher.

Advertising Receivable Sales & Design Vicki Berks Laura Perkins Editor's Notebook Send in your favorite venison recipe A couple weeks ago my editorial musing was about my recipes for venison (both deer and elk), but I heard that some people (especially women) -didn't finish reading it because it started off like a hunting article. At the end of the piece I asked folks to send in their favorite venison- hater recipes, but I haven't i received any yet. Bow hunting season is about over, and rifle seasons will start soon for deer and elk, so many people are going to have freezers full of venison. And it would be an appropriate time to feature a few good recipes - especially ones that appeal to those who aren't venison lovers. How about a favorite marinade - either off the shelf or homemade? Please send recipes to PO Box R, Council, ID 83612 or record@ctcweb. net. Here's a venison chili recipe to get" things started. This recipe for chili will serve 4 people easily: I1 '1 ' Chili ' ' Venison ' I I I INGREDIENTS I I I I ' 1 lb. ground venison 1 8 oz. glass of water I I 1 tsp. olive oil 2 beef bouillon cubes ! I I ! 2 cans of dark red kidney beans i tsp. salt i ! 1 can of black beans 1 tsp, pepper i ! 1 can of diced tomatoes 1 tbs. chili powder (more or less) ! ! 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce i tbs. cumin ! I 1 diced bell pepper tsp. garlic powder ! ! i diced small onion tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) I I I I I ! In a large boiler, sautd the venison, bell pepper, onions and the olive oil. ! I You'll probably need the olive oil because venison is extremely low in fat and ! I will stick to the pan if you're not careful. When the venison is browned and I I the pepper and onions are softened, add the kidney beans, black beans, bouil- ! I I ion cubes, water and the tomato sauce. Wait until the last minute to add the II I tomatoes so that the tomatoes don't cook to pieces. Add the salt, pepper, chili I I powder, cumin, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Let the chili simmer on ! I low for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally so that it doesn't stick. Add the !.: I tomatoes about 10 minutes before serving. Adjust the chili powder, cumin, salt, I I I ! pepper and garlic powder to your taste. You can add more water if you want ! i soupier venison chili. If you add more water, you may need to add another i ! bouillon cube to maintain a rich flavor. You can garnish your bowl of this ! I hearty venison chili with a dollop of sour cream, some shredded cheese or ! I even some jalapeno peppers. !
