Exline to dedicate memorial Monday

Howdy folks. Well I guess ready or not, winter is coming! I can honestly say that the only good part of winter is the beauty and of course a slow down for a lot of hard working farmers. It always amazes me the time and dedication that they give to a life they love.

This weeks recipe is an odd one. I ran across some cooking site that had “fake-out” recipes and thought it would be a fun challenge to make one and see if it really tasted like the real one. Much to my surprise there was no difference! I made Grape-Nuts! The store cost on name brand was high and the generic still pretty high so my goal was to make it cheaper and no weird ingredients to preserve it so here you go.

Fake-out Grape-Nuts

3 ½ c. of graham flour

1 c. brown sugar

2 c. buttermilk or sour milk

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

Directions: Sift flour, add soda and salt, sift again. Add sugar and mix thoroughly. Then add milk and stir until smooth. Grease a jelly roll pan and spread dough out. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Let it cool and grind in food processor. Store in airtight container and enjoy.

A few quick notes. The memorial dedication will be held on Monday, Nov. 11 at the cemetery and Enfys McMurry will be speaking. Then the group will head over to the community center for coffee and goodies.

The election results are in and here is how it came out. Jimmy Casteel – Mayor, Council at large – Jim Burns, Annette Sinclair, Gary Hull, Terry Hand and Maryann Hurley. Congratulations to all.

The monthly birthday party at the Exline Store was held on Nov. 6 and there was a good crowd in attendance. The one anniversary was Rick and Penny Sharp, 15 years. The rest are birthdays and are Maryann Hurley, Rosalee Exline, Barb Eddy, Heather Clarke, Jack Mcglurg, Linda Lakner,and Josie Sprouse.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about building code compliance. One Centerville resident at Monday's City Council meeting proposed the city create two new positions in the police department to only deal with minimum housing and nuisance abatement issues. The city currently has George Johnson as the only employee assigned to enforce building code compliance issues. Does Centerville need more than just Johnson to enforce code compliance issues? So, the question of the week is, "Should Centerville hire additional help to assist George Johnson enforce building code compliance issues?"

A. Yes
B. No
C. Not sure
