108 Wednesday, June 18, 2014 Bulletm, Kecord, Progresstve, Reporter LETTERS, from page 7B  ,:wer up, sadly they can h,ry their mistakes in this rgedy, only the families ', n resurrect the evidence. Then we have the Arnbassador killings in Benghazi and the video that ,wer was shown; but we have lour dead men. No one ;mswered the phone in the f'resident's office or the Secretary of State's office at : a.m. in the morning. Where were they? Someday a Secret Service agent will step fbrward from the President's detail and another from Hi llary Cliuton's security team to tell a very interesting story about the h: I tie of Benghazi. Cover up? Does the Portola Fire Department have enough certified fi refighters aud engineers to cover 24/7? Assemble a mandated oral roll call and have all their certifications independently verified. Will the Council and new City Manager (the fridge) keep buying the Chief's story? I suggest several practice 3 a.m. fire drills to determine which and how many, qualified volunteers arrive to save the city and Gold Mountain residents. Excuses will not save lives or property. Following last week's fire near the river, you can't ignore their poor commitment. Trent Saxton Lake Davis Continued from last week ... "Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Martin NiemSller (1892-1984). The message is that the culture that allows (sometimes even encourages) one minority group to be marginalized, harassed and discriminated against has the potential for anyone to be mistreated. Gene Nielsen Crescent Mills Insurance companies to blame You do understand that health insurers don't provid e healthcare - right? Their only function is to collect your premiums and pay providers. They make money by charging huge premiums and denying us health benefits. The fundamental goals of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) were to prevent the inhumane and barbaric practices of health insurers (like denying health coverage, capping payouts and rescission) and to provide governmental assistance to those in need of financial assistance to purchase insurance. Health insurers are enjoying the profits from all the new enrollees, however their greed is still intact and the insurers are purposefully sabotaging the ACA and Americans. People complain that their doctor is not in their plan - that's the insurer doing that, not the ACA. And it doesn't stop there. A few months ago, I went on the Anthem site to find a doctor. Anthem had zero health providers in Plumas County so I had to go to Truckee. After complaining. Anthem put our county providers in the provider" list. Then I need some lab work. I called Anthem to find a provider and they said the closest lab is in Fresno! Begrudgingly, Anthem permitted the lab in Truckee to temporarily perform the lab. Remember, to insurers it's all about profit and not your health. America has lost all honor and dignity. Everyone is out to screw you out of your last dollar. From federal government to Plumas County, politicians are diverting wealth to the very top and they could care less about Americans. It's all about stuffing their pockets with your money. Finally, when people come and give lectures on the horrors of ACA, just remember it's all about money. You will know this when the host asks you for a monthly contribution and the speaker puts out his hat for donations. Mark Mihevc Graeagle Immigration solution President Pinocchio, the Wing Nut of the West Wing, by his magnificent deal with the Taliban to swap one of our would-be Taliban members for five hardened Taliban "generals" has opened new doors of opportunity for America. Never mind that his narrative about why it was so urgent to rescue Sgt. Bergdahl changed about twelve times in the last week, Allah be praised! Now we have a chance to rescue someone who truly has served with "honor and distinction" (are you listening, Susan Rice), Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, held in appalling conditions in Mexico. Dear Leader, offer a swap of 10,000 illegal immigrants for the return of our Marine. If that is not nearly enough, the ante is in the millions for one American. Do this and your legacy is secure!

Claudia Barnes, Pat Ramelli and Kathy Knight discussed the history of jerky and then taught the students how to make it. "Many learned the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon and how to measure liquids in a cup," Ramelli observed. Students marinated the meat and then hung the pieces with curtain hooks on a rack to dry. They then enjoyed samples of jerky already made. The CattleWomen gave the presentation four times each morning and afternoon for three days. "A total of 24 times," Ramelli said. "We know the recipe by heart." The word "jerky" comes from the Native American Quechua term ch'arki (meaning dried meat). Meat (bison, deer, elk) was boned CattleWomen jerky 314 cup soy sauce I Tbsp. brown sugar 112 tsp. pepper I12 tsp. minced garlic I12 tsp. fresh grated ginger I tsp salt 1 lb. beef strips Mix the first six ingredients and add the beef. Marinate for 6 to 8 hours. More time yields more flavor; overnight is suggested. The meat can be dried in a dehydrator at 140 degrees for 8 hours or more; or in a 175-degree oven with the door open until desired dryness is achieved. Another option is to dry it outdoors as the pioneers did, covered with a cloth. Experiment with flavors, texture, etc. Enjoy. and when something was killed the travelers could eat only so much and defatted, then cut into slices fresh meat so the rest was made and rubbed With salt, which would  . intjerkytcprve e for later. draw the moisture from the meat, Today jerky j aery popular thus preserving it. North American pioneers would dry meat by hanging it outside of their covered wagons and letting it dry in the sun for two to three days. Another method was to smoke the strips over a slow fire, which would complete the process in half a day. These game animals are large snack, providing good nutrition, while being lightweight and fulfilling for riding the range all day. This is the third year for the CattleWomen to teach jerky making during Pioneer Days. "It is always a very popular station and rewarding for the CattleWomen participating," Ramelli said. I SEE NO WAVING FLAG I see no waving flag in selfishness; No anthem stirs my blood in "mine alone," I feel no pride in seeing spitefulness; And master races never will condone. The flag waves over me as well as you; In shops; on farms; in urban tenements; On ships; in all our states, both red and blue; In hearts with empathetic sentiments. My fervent anthem treats us all as one No matter what our drummer's pace might be And praises all that live beneath the sun And joins as one our whole society. My flag proclaims a solid state as it proceeds; I sing of those unknown and those who do great deeds.
