For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certainBecause today s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic. Teddy Bear s Picnic by John Walter Bratton, lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy, 1932 I always thought that every day was a day for a Teddy Bear picnic Correct me if I m wrong Yeah, the bears are still in the woods, minus the fancy toilet pa-per, as are the coyotes, deer, elk, foxes, bunnies and all the other wild woodland creatures who live among the trees and bushes of Mother Nature You and I, on the other hand, will not be in the woods today Not if we have any sense That will remain the case until the southern monsoon brings enough moisture to make the woods safe for human habitation You have no doubt heard that the Carson Forest is closed because of the fire danger due to extremely dry conditions What that means, in a nutshell as they say, is that the forest is off-limits to foot traffic, motorized traffic, horse traffic, bi-cycle traffic, extraterrestrial traffic from above and So, stay out of the forest There are excellent reasons the Forest Service folk don t want you in the woods at this time The A#1 reason is for the safe-ty of you and your family, as well as people you don t know and will most likely never meet That includes me who lives in this tiny town surrounded by the forest and the wildland firefighters who risk their lives for people like you and I As for #2, it costs beaucoup bucks to put out a fire should one flare up. That cost will be passed on to whoever started the fire. If you decide that you are spe-cial and the restriction doesn t ap-ply to you, a trip into the forest can result in arrest, sizable fines and maybe a stint in the hoosgow Jail, jailhouse, pokey, poky, slammer, clink, cooler, con col-lege, calaboose, the pen, the farm, lockup, stockade, the Joint, the Bighouse, Club Fed, Caponeville, Gotti Town, greybar hotel and any others I left out Is that special enough for you? To quote the Forest Service: Violations of the closure order carry a mandatory appearance in federal court and are punishable as a Class B misdemeanor by a fine of not more than $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for organizations and/or by impris-onment for not more than six months I personally want to thank the people of the Carson who kept the forest open as long as they did, sensitive to the needs of the local population, and I personally want to thank those same people of the Carson who made the decision to close it Closing the forest is not a sim-ple, easy decision Tons of factors go into the process and such an ac-tion is never taken without great care and considerable thought We must preserve our forest for future generations to enjoy River City Adventures, 212 W.

Has there ever been two such like them since? How grateful we can be for those two fearless leaders On this July Fourth, two-thou-sand-and-eighteen, let us remem-ber our history and those who have given so much Let us never forget the kind of men and women who have carried this country on their shoulders The leaders and those in the trenches Democracy can become a fragile thing if we, each one of us, do not treat it with the respect and care it deserves PS: George M Cohan s family were Jewish immigrants PPS: FDR once said, We are all immigrants in this land His ancestry was Dutch Till Next Time FARM, RANCH & RECREATIONAL REAL ESTATEBEAU MCDOWELLQualifying Broker, New Mexico1371 East Main StreetRed River, New MexicoCELL: in the Red River area since 2005 Th e Re d Ri v eR Mi n eRJu l y 5, 20185TY S THAI SALAD This recipe comes from Trisha Yearwood s TV program I hope you ll try it it really is very good For some reason I think it s great with fried chicken!INGReDIeNTS: 1 head Napa cabbage, shredded 1 head red cabbage, shredded 1 large cucumber, seeded and julienned 1 bag (10 oz) shelled edamame, cooked 2 carrots, peeled and coarsely grated 2 green onions, thinly slicedDReSSING: 2 cups olive oil 1 cups finely chopped cilantro 1 cup sugar 2 cloves garlic, finely minced Juice of 2 limes tsp salt tsp pepper 1 avocado, peeled and finely slicedDIReCTIONS: In a large bowl toss the Napa and red cabbage Add cucumber, edamame, carrots and green onions Toss well FOR THe DReSSING: Put oil, cilantro, sugar, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper into a blender and blend until smooth To serve you can either pile the salad on a plate or in an indi-vidual bowl and pour some dressing over the top or you can pour dressing over the entire bowl of salad greens and toss well Top each serving with avocado slices Any questions?

It was the first thing in the pa-rade, of course Great big one, carried by two of the kids from the ROTC at the high school The bands followed, along with the mounted patrol, the ski patrol in their summer-weight jackets, the float with the princesses on it, and the local kids leading dogs and cats some rather reluctantly on leashes For some of us, the Fourth of July parade is a chance to see just how much the local kids have grown over the past year For oth-ers, it s a chance to see something that is really ours This is our valley This is our town This is our parade These are our people These are the people who make our little valley unique in the whole world This is a chance for us all to get together and celebrate us, you know? But all that comes later What comes first on this day above all others is the American flag. Oh, it s a great big one Where they found this one, I don t know, but it takes two high school boys to carry it It really doesn t matter what size it is, because it s what it means to us that counts To Herb over there, there are memories of his terrible days in Korea, I m sure, and the wounds that sent him home early To Doc, maybe it s the way the G I Bill let him go back to college and ful-fill his life s dream of taking care of sick people To Annette, over across the street there, there is a look in her eyes that tells us that flag meant she could protest whatever the complaint-du-jour was during her college days She knows there are few places in the world this toler-ant of unpopular opinions And then there s Dewey down on the corner He s got his hand over his heart as the flag goes by. Maybe he s thinking of a coun-try that will allow him to start a business with a borrowed pickup and a shovel and supply our flow-er beds with fertilizer He sure wasn t able to make anything else work for him And today this accident-prone pal of ours has branched out into fishing worms and compost But these are just speculations, because what the flag means to each of us is personal We don t have to tell anyone We never have to explain We even have the freedom not to be here looking as the flag goes by. It s an American thing A very private American moment -------- Windy Wilson fans can listen to his philosophies on Home Coun-try with Slim Randles on your lo-cal country music station. home countryBOOK salEat the Library FIll a BaG - $5Bo o k s, au d i o sTh e Re d Ri v eR Mi n eR8Ju l y 5, 20187:30 AM - 8 PMOPeN DAILY8 AM - 9 PM 416 W.
