COUNTRY COUSIN

REMEMBER THEM"..

After waiting so long, Spring is finally here and the summer season will officially start this coming Memorial Day weekend. There is so much to do as the whirlwind of graduations, family reunions, picnics and other fun begins, but hope we all do take time out to attend the official Memorial Day observances and pay tribute to the veterans who gave up their lives for us.

Don't know for sure of any communities that still have a Memorial Day parade, but most do have graveside services in the cemetery, and some, including Coleman, have special programs in the school.

PARADES

Not many years ago, Crivitz had a wonderful tradition. Veterans groups, other organizations, school children and the school bands would march along the parade route, which would be lined with hundreds of observers. As the parade passed, the watchers would fall in behind it, adding to the line, until finally the entire group reached the cemetery, where there were speeches and ceremonies honoring those who had fallen in defense of our nation.

Somehow that tradition has fallen by the wayside, but do wish it could be resurrected.

DECORATION DAY

Memorial Day had its start as Decoration Day in the years following the Civil War.

It was established as a day to decorate the graves of both Union and Rebel soldiers who were buried far from home.

Anyway, there are different tales of how Decoration Day actually got started, but on May 5, 1862, General John A. Logan, leader of an organization for Northern Civil War veterans, called for a nationwide day of remembrance later that month and designated May 30 as the date to strew flowers, "or otherwise decorate the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land," he proclaimed. The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn't the anniversary of any particular battle.

Years went by, more wars were fought, and the name was changed to Memorial Day. To give a long weekend, the official observance was set for the final Monday of May. Memorial Day became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Meaning of Memorial Day for most of us has somewhat evolved over the years. Memorial Day remains dedicated to those who died fighting for the ideals of our nation, but for many of us it also serves as a catalyst to remember all our departed loved ones and decorate their graves as well. No one officially made it a day for that, but it fills a need. Maybe it should be called Remembrance Day, as it was for a time.

ON THE SOAP BOX

WHAT IS PATRIOTISM?


"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it," according to Mark Twain

George William Curtis described it differently, but perhaps the thought is the same. He said, "A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle."

That principle is what so many have been willing to die for. It is our job as beneficiaries of their sacrifices to protect the principles on which this nation is based.

We need to defend American principles on street corners, in schools, in churches, and at the ballot box. If we do not, the land will still be here, but our nation will not survive!

TOO MUCH TO DO

In addition to fishing, family gatherings, flea markets, rummage sales, graduation parties, the Middle Inlet Community Pot Luck, and the Crivitz Red White and Music festival, veterans organizations all over the county have their own special events going on.

American Legion Post 39 in Marinette is hosting a brat fry on Thursday and Friday, May 26 and 27, at Jack's Fresh Market on Cleveland Avenue in Marinette, and the Menominee American Legion is offering a Memorial Day Breakfast for $6 on Monday, May 30 from 8 to 11 a.m. The public is welcome. menu includes scrambled eggs, toast, biscuits and gravy, corn beef hash, ham, sausage, hash browns, orange juice, coffee and desserts.

Sounds like a meal where you should come early and just sit around eating for the rest of the day.

Just kidding!

MIRACLES

Memorial Day for many brings sad memories of wartime tragedies and happier recollections of tragedies averted. Sometimes miracles happened, sometimes they still do. But they aren't always recognized. Sometimes what may have been a miraculous coincidence comes disguised as something of a joke.

Friend and coworker Dave Thibodeau, who moved to his eternal reward last year, spent some very hard time fighting in Germany during World War II, then wasted away to less than 98 pounds during many, many months in a prisoner of war camp before being turned loose with other American prisoners to find their way home when the war was ending but not yet over.

He didn't talk often of his war experiences, but once in a while he did. As always, he was good at finding the humorous side of things.

Dave agreed thoroughly with the philosophy that "There are no atheists in fox holes!" However, he said he quit praying to be spared from injury when he noticed everyone around him was praying too. Obviously, with all those shells and bombs and grenades coming in, some of those prayers were not going to be answered, at least not in the positive. So he started praying, "Thy will be done," asking only that if he was a victim, he end up on the right side of the Pearly Gates.

Well, he was spared, but went on to other war time experiences. As he and his buddies were making their way across Germany after getting out of the POW camp they managed to capture a tank and were using it for transport. Their tank broke down and they took shelter for the night in a hay loft on an abandoned farm.

Thinking they were alone and fairly safe, they passed a bit of time trying to learn some German phrases. As they prepared to settle in for the night, Dave asked how to say in German, "Come out with your hands up!"

A companion provided the German words: "Comese raus mit der hans der hocht!"

Not knowing anyone, friend or foe, was anywhere near, Dave repeated the words in loud, commanding German, trying to imitate a Nazi officer.

Out came four German soldiers, hands up. Thanks to a little clowning, he had taken prisoners he didn't even know were there! He believes the Germans were hiding, waiting for the opportunity to capture or kill the Americans who outnumbered them.

So his German lesson may have saved his life. Guess God wasn't ready for him yet. Anyway, he came home, married, raised a family, and lived a long and productive life before making his appearance at those Pearly Gates.

OF FLIGHT

Thanks to the generosity of Don Kotecki of Crivitz, the Peshtigo Times has become the proud owner of a bound volume of The Chicago Evening Post with copies of most of the issues printed in 1929. Pages are brittle but very, very readable.

Didn't find any mention of Memorial Day or Decoration Day in the papers I checked, but did find a huge fascination with flight. Horse racing and baseball were also of great interest.

On May 24, 1929, the Graf Zeppelin was back in its home hangar in Germany after a failed attempt to cross the Atlantic. Before turning back, which obviously was no easy feat because it required several attempts, those aboard had dropped a wreath into the Mediterranean in memory of those who had lost their lives on the Dixmude, which apparently was another zeppelin.

A mono plane in Texas had been aloft for 116 hours, and was attempting to beat the old refueling endurance record of 138 hours.

And in Santa Monica, Calif, plans were being made by some female pilots for a 2,044-mile air race to Cleveland. Those named as entrants were Amelia Earhart, Ruth Elder, Lady Heath of London, Bebe Daniels and Marvel Crosson.

OF SUMMER BUGS

With the warm weather come hordes of summer bugs, of the winged and non-winged variety. June bugs, wasps, hornets, mosquitoes and ticks are out in force. Some of these varmints sting, and some carry diseases.

Lacking wings, ticks can't fly. They also don't leap, hop, drop from trees, or even move very fast. Instead, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, ticks at every stage of development seek their hosts with a behavior entomologists call "questing."

They climb the stems of grasses, foliage plants, and low shrubbery, and extend their forelegs - which contain sensing organs that respond to carbon dioxide, body heat and odors, vibration, and moisture - grabbing on when a suitable host brushes by. They crawl, generally upward, until they find a patch of skin to attach to, secreting anesthetics and anticoagulants, and "cementing" themselves in for a meal.

Ticks have evolved an ingenious two-way system that sends concentrated nutrients from the blood meal into the tick's gut in one direction, while returning excess fluid"along with any pathogens living in the tick's saliva"back into the host's body.

Only female mosquitoes bite; they need blood to develop their eggs. Recent research shows that mosquitoes use a combination of smell, sight, and thermal sensing to locate a suitable host. Unlike the tick, which can attach for hours or days, a mosquito zooms in for a quick nip and flies away.

A few simple strategies can help you avoid tick and mosquito bites when you go outside:

*Avoid times of day when most mosquitoes are active (early morning and dusk), and areas where ticks are most likely to abound.

*Dress to defend. Cover up with long, light-colored pants tucked into socks, long sleeves with tight cuffs, long gloves, and tall rubber boots (ticks can't climb the shiny surface). If you're really paranoid, wear a head net with netting that comes down over your shoulders if you're walking through brush or pruning shrubs, berry bushes, or fruit trees.

* For even more protection, wear garments treated with permethrin, a serious pesticide that disables or kills ticks or flying insects that land on it. You can purchase treated garments from outdoor retailers, or buy permethrin sprays to treat your own clothing. The protective effect will last through several washings, but wash permethrin-treated clothing separately from other clothes. Problem is that permethrin should not be sprayed or rubbed directly onto the skin, which makes one wonder just how safe it is to wear the treated garments without untreated under clothing/

*Bug repellents don't really repel as much as they confuse insects and ticks, so they don't recognize you as a potential host, but they do work, at least for a while. Repellents come in sprays, lotions, sticks, and wipes, and they vary widely in what biting pests they work against, the concentration of effective ingredients, and the hours of protection they provide. Check those labels carefully.

DEET is considered the current gold standard for insect and tick protection. It's been used and studied since 1946, though it has caused health concerns. For good protection against ticks, use in 15 percent to 50 percent (but no higher) concentrations.

Picaridin is generally considered safer (especially for children) than DEET, and also won't damage fabrics. To protect against ticks, use the 20 percent concentration.

Look for BioUD, a relatively new product developed by research scientists at North Carolina State University, which is said to work as well or better than DEET against mosquitoes and ticks. Active ingredients are naturally occurring essential oils from wild tomato plant.

For a less aggressive defense, burn a little sage or rosemary to repel mosquitoes.

Rubbing the skin with baby oil or imitation vanilla extract is said to repel biting insects such as mosquitoes and black flies.

To eliminate the itch from insect bites, rub on meat tenderizer, lemon juice, crushed garlic or the inside of a banana peel.

Some people swallow slivered garlic to ward off summer pests. Others take garlic tablets or rub garlic juice directly on their skin. Probably keeps people away too.

Vinegar, white or cider, is another remedy for repelling insects or relieving the itch of their bites. Apply it in full strength.

Some people have luck with high doses of vitamin B1 (100 milligrams, two or three times a day), but it doesn't work for everybody.

COOKIN' TIME

Summer is for sharing, and what could be better to share than asparagus and rhubarb when they're in season?

GRILLED ASPARAGUS PACKETS

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup olive oil

1 pound fresh asparagus

salt and pepper to taste

4 squares heavy duty aluminum foil

Clean asparagus, trim off tough ends, and cut remainder into 1/2" diagonal slices. Toss with remaining ingredients, then divide equally between the foil pieces. The foil squares must be large enough to completely enclose the asparagus and allow at least double folds at all seams. Grill over moderately hot coals for about 15 minutes, depending on heat. Next time try adding mushroom slices or precooked bacon pieces. Don't use the fake bacon bits for this. To cook indoors, bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

RASPBERRY RHUBARB Jell-O SALAD

You can make this somewhat low carb by using sugar-free gelatin mix, but you do need real sugar to cook with the rhubarb. Wonderful contribution to a party or picnic table, and it travels very well in a cooler.

3 cups chopped fresh rhubarb

1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste

2 tablespoons water

1 (3 ounce) package raspberry flavored gelatin mix

1 cup cold water

1 cup chopped apple

1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced, or chopped walnuts

In saucepan over medium heat combine the rhubarb, sugar and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until rhubarb is somewhat mushy. Stir, taste, and add sugar if needed. Put one cup of the boiling hot stewed rhubarb into a heat proof dish and stir in the raspberry flavored gelatin mix until completely dissolved. Stir in 1 cup cold water, then mix in the apples and celery. Pour into a serving bowl, and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until set. Garnish with whipped topping, creamy salad dressing or mayonnaise before serving if you like.

GRAHAM CRACKER ECLAIR TORTE

This super easy recipe is perfect for shower, reunion, or pot luck, because it must be made at least 24 hours ahead and is easily portable. Serves 10 or so, depending on how you slice it.

2 boxes French vanilla instant pudding (3 1/2 ounces)

3 cups cold whole milk

1 box graham crackers (14 ounces)

1 container frozen whipped topping, defrosted, (8 ounces)

Icing:

4 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons milk

Beat pudding mix with milk until thickened. Use a rotary mixer if possible, or a wire whip and a very strong arm. Gently fold in whipped topping. Layer a 9x13" baking pan with one layer of the graham crackers. Don't break them up, just arrange them to cover the entire bottom of the pan, and break pieces to fill in holes if you need to. Spread half of the pudding mixture evenly over the crackers. Repeat by adding another layer of graham crackers and another layer of pudding, then top with a final layer of graham crackers. For the icing, sift the cocoa and confectioner's sugar until lumps are removed. Place in a small saucepan and stir in the remaining icing ingredients. Cook and stir over moderate heat until everything is dissolved and butter is melted. Pour over the final graham cracker layer and spread to the sides to cover completely. Let it cool a bit, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving. During the 24 hours the filling will soak into the graham crackers and soften them, making the whole thing easy to cut and serve, and wonderful to eat.

TAKE ALONG RHUBARB SQUARES

Talk about quick and easy!

Crust:

1 cup flour

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup butter

Filling:

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb

Combine flour and powdered sugar, then cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of a greased 11X7 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. For filling, combine the first five ingredients. Stir in rhubarb; pour over warm crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or cool, as desired. Store in refrigerator.

Thought for the week: Lord, on this Memorial Day, let those we love who now live with You know we think of them. They live on in our hearts. Their works live on in the lives they touched while they were here. Help us to be worthy of their efforts.
