July fishing tournament in full swing

PALO VERDE - The July Rod and Gun Club Fishing tournament is well on its way and fishermen need to sign up before the month is over in order to take advantage of this month's tournament. You can sign up at Wheelies store. The fee is $10.

If you catch the largest fish for the month you could walk away with a big prize. The largest fish for last month was a 30-pound catfish. Each month the tournament starts over so sign up now.

The spotlight shines on a number of people this week.

Despite the hot weather, six dedicated Rod and Gun Club members arise before daybreak on the first Saturday of each month to travel to the Rod and Gun Club and begin to cook breakfast for anyone who shows up.

They are Bill Coram, Mike Grady and John Gibson who do the actual planning and cooking and Denise and Joe from Cibola, and Winnie Barrett who do the business work and clean up work after everyone leaves.

This effort takes most of the week as there is buying of the food and planning that everything goes off well.

There is no pay for these hard workers, only their devotion to the town and to try to spark an interest in the Rod and Gun Club.

Those that come to try out the breakfast return week after week. What started out just a few attending the breakfast, now close to 40 attend.

One of the big reasons is the quality of the food, which consists of ham, bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, plenty of hot coffee and the biggest hot cakes one can imagine.

An unusual party was held at the home of Jennifer Harris last week. She hosted a pizza party at her river home for 15 under-privileged children. After a full morning swim in the river, the children came in for a pizza dinner complete with homemade cole slaw salad with chopped chicken.

The children loved the pizza, however they went back for two or three helpings of the unusual cole slaw recipe.

Harris has shared this recipe with our readers.

One large bag of chopped slaw at any store. Put this slaw mixture in a large bowl. Add finely chopped bell pepper, onion, garlic, walnuts that you think is needed. Then add four cups of diced cooked chicken, one package of oriental noodles, crushed, and add the dressing of one half cup of oil, four tablespoons vinegar, half of one lime.

Pour this mixture over the slaw mixture and stir well. Cover and let refrigerate for at least two hours.

You can make as little or as much needed, following the directions to your taste.

Gold mine owners have only about six weeks to complete their assessments and to get their paperwork in to the Bureau of Land Management. If you do not do this on time you could lose your claims.

Although gold has lost some of its value lately, it is still up to $120 per ounce.

Several small mine owners south of town say they have done well on the weekend with their panning of the crushed ore. Its very hard work, and the desert regions this time of year can be dangerous and very hot.

Ageless Reflections has reported that their usual Christmas in July event will not be held this season but rather they have chosen to go to Laughlin, Nev. for a night of fun.

The group says their recent blood transfusion program was a success. Every pint of blood donated will save the lives of three people.

The group is also holding their line dancing weekly and also their exercise programs. Everyone is welcome to attend.Many from Palo Verde go daily to the community center in Blythe each day and enjoy all the programs the Ageless Reflection group holds.

Another warning about snakes this time of year. The snakes, like us, are looking for cool places to lie in wait. Fishermen must use great care when fishing along the grassy slopes.
