Grind your own grain

Grind your own grain

Most of us have been buying commercially milled flour for as long as we can remember. It's just not something we think about much these days. I'd venture a guess that most school kids have only a foggy idea where the powdery white stuff in the pantry originated (before the supermarket). The real shame of buying flour from the store is that freshly milled flour is rich with flavor and nutrients that get stripped away during large-scale processing. It all started during the Industrial Revolution, when mass food storage and shipping became the rage. To this day, commercial milling removes the "germ" of the grain, which contains healthy and flavorful fatty acids, in order to extend the shelf life of flour. Soon after whole grains are milled, those wondrous oils start to spoil, whereas degerminated flour can technically last for years without going rancid. The secret that many of our grandmothers understood, however, is that storage isn't a concern when you make flour at home, and the payoffs from grinding your own grain are plenty.

MINNICK: Guilty of spinning truth

The perils of taking single comments out of context came to the forefront recently when the White House/Dept. of Agriculture fired Shirley Sherrod for a comment played on a website, only to retract after they bothered to watch a few more minutes of the speech and realized her intent was opposite of the initial accusation. Another outrageous example of misusing a comment in a disingenuous manner can be seen in the new TV commercial by Walt Minnick about his congressional opponent Raul Labrador.

MUSLIMS: When knowledge is bliss

Ignorance is defined as, "Not knowing or illiterate."

Jesus would agree with much of what Mr. Connacher said and Jesus would have disagreed with the crusades. Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said, love your neighbor and hate your enemy, but I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you might be sons of your Father in heaven."

Nice touch with the hyperbole of "knee-deep Muslim blood." One might notice that he had nothing but praise for the tender mercies of the "religion of peace." In typical mea culpa fashion Connacher begins his guilt trip with the Crusades; if he were this interested in history, he might have gone back a little further and wondered what Muslim armies were doing in Austria and Spain. You probably couldn't find any group of people in the world who haven't some time in their history done very bad things - for whatever cause.

Sylvia Ragsdale, 65

Ragsdale, Sylvia, 65, of Spokane, left this life on Sept. 10, 2010, in Coeur d'Alene, to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ. Sylvia was born Jan. 10, 1945, in Buckley, Wash., to Goldie (Peterson) DeChand and Edlore DeChand. She was the seventh of their eight children and is survived by her younger sister Marla Langley. Sylvia put her trust in the Lord and led an active Christian life. She was a loving wife, mother, a patient grandmother and a caring friend. The memory of Sylvia is accentuated by the many hearts she touched through her generosity and kindness. She shared her smile and her time freely with family, friends, and acquaintances alike. Even when she was battling her own illness, her concern was for others. She ministered to those caring for her in her last days because she took her relationship with Jesus Christ seriously, even to the very end. It was His name that was on her lips as she neared her transition from this world to the next. Her body was failing, but her faith in Him grew stronger. We are all blessed to have known such a woman, may we continue her legacy of faithfulness in our own lives. Sylvia was a faithful wife to James Ragsdale of Spokane for 46 years. She is survived by her three children, son Jeff (Kim) Ragsdale, of Sioux Falls, S.D., daughter Kim (Eric) Mehringer of Coeur d'Alene, and son Greg (Tami) Ragsdale of New Baltimore, MI. Her nine surviving grandchildren are Keith (Heather) Heckman, Brittany Heckman, Hayley Mehringer, Kahryn Ragsdale, Slater Heckman, Kaylynn Ragsdale, Chloe Mehringer, and Grace and Lara Ragsdale. She was also the proud great-grandmother to newborn Ezekiel (son of Brittany and William). A celebration of Sylvia's life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, at ONE* Spokane, 15601 E. 24th, Spokane Valley. Donations in her memory may be made to Hospice of North Idaho, 9493 N. Government Way, Hayden, 83835. Please sign Sylvia's online guestbook at www.hennesseyfuneralhomes.com. Arrangements have been entrusted to: Hennessey Valley Funeral Home, 1315 N. Pines Road, Spokane Valley, WA, 99206.

What can be done for itchy ears?

Ask your audiologist…

The ear canal is a warm moist environment perfect for growing fungus or infections. If your ears itch it is most likely due to dry skin or otitis externa. Otitis externa is an infection of the outer ear canal usually caused from swimming (same as swimmers ear). A drop of alcohol after swimming will help dry out the ear. If you are not a swimmer and have dry ears there is nothing wrong with putting a little lotion on a cotton swab or your fingertip and applying it to the outer ear (do not push anything down into the ear canal). If the itch is deep within the ear canal I recommend using audiologist's choice anti itch cream or just regular hydrocortisone cream. You can purchase this cream from most hearing professionals for about $10 a tube and it will last a long time.

We've all heard the wisdom: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. And if I could place a fishing pole into the capable hands of each and every one of you, you know I would. But the plain and simple truth is that many of you lack a babbling brook and, sadly, there are no rubber waders in your near future. You depend on local markets and fish shops to supply you with the fish you eat. And that can be a wonderful opportunity - or a no-man's land of misinformation.

Preserving your assets while qualifying for Medicaid

On Elder Care

As I noted in a previous column, approximately 50 percent of seniors have their nursing home care paid for by Medicaid. Unlike Medicare (which only pays for up to 100 days of nursing home care), Medicaid is not an entitlement program, and recipients are disqualified unless they can demonstrate income below a certain level and ownership of assets below a certain amount. However, the rules that apply to Medicaid assistance enable seniors to retain significant assets through careful planning. As an example, let us take the hypothetical case of John Smith.

CANDIDATES: Question their views, opinions

As the November election grows nearer, let's take a look at our choices for Representative for the 1st U.S. Congressional District. Many voters do not really know the difference between Walt Minnick and Raul Labrador. Did you know that Walt Minnick voted against the ‘Stupak' amendment which was against using federal taxpayer's money to fund abortion and now your federal tax dollars do just that? As for the ‘immigration ‘ issue, even though Raul Labrador is an immigration lawyer, he is against amnesty for illegal aliens while Walt Minnick is for it. I do agree with Jan Conner, My Turn - Tuesday Sept 7, that as voters we all have the right to question any candidate on their views and positions.

TIME WARNER: Not the only game in town

My husband and I were surprised to find our Time Warner bill had jumped from $135.19 in August to $155.61 in September. We have broadband, phone service and digital cable (no premium channels). After a little research, I discovered we could save $44.23 per month by switching to VoIP.com for our phone and Direct TV for cable (that's $530 a year, includes free voicemail and more TV channels). I called Time Warner and told them I would be canceling everything but broadband. The agent asked if I would reconsider and put me on hold. After waiting no less than 10 minutes for the agent to talk to her superviser, they offered to reduce my bill by $20 a month. Not good enough, so I cancelled. I would switch broadband carriers gladly if there were another option, but hopefully Time Warner will get the message that when it comes to phone and television services, they are not the only game in town and need to be more competitive.

The Democrats have had control of Congress for four years and the presidency for two allowing us to see what happens when progressivism is allowed to control public policy. With empty promises of keeping the unemployment rate under 8.5 percent they passed an $860 billion pork-laden stimulus bill that has so far stimulated nothing except anxiety about how future generations will pay for it all. With bribes and brute force they passed an unwanted health care bill that 56 percent of Americans want repealed (Rasmussen Aug. 23). Through TARP and bailouts the federal government has infiltrated the banking and auto industries. Next year's deficit is projected to be at a staggering $1.2 trillion and the human mind has a difficult time trying to wrap itself around the total debt our country now has.
