Now, these two are good cooks
N. ...»0
member
of my
family be-
lieves that
I was one
of the
judges for
a Down
H ome
Country
Chie of
Cook-Off.
The
reason _ is
that I col-
[Seiie 1
recipes (I got more last Thursday) and
cook very little. My best friend in the
kitchen is the Microwave. But I know
what tastes good and the Chefs at Sum-
mit Place of Kings Mountain and
Morningside of Gastonia (two Five Star
senior living facilities) know how to
treat your taste buds. Just ask Herald
Publisher Wendy Isbell and Advertising
Director Rick Hord who also were
guests at the cook-off.
The “battle of the culinary arts” was
between Chef Tyrone Corbitt of Sum-
mit Place of Kings Mountain and Chef
Sherri Marana of Morningside of Gas-
tonia. I voted for both to win but when
the votes were tallied the top score went
to Marana with Corbitt runner up. The
win was by a mere eight votes.
The other judges were Allen Lang-
Lib Stewart
Managing Editor
ley, chairman of the board of Cleveland
“Chamber; Ted Turner, regional director
of 5 Star for the two Carolinas facili-
ties; Gaston County Sheriff Alan
Cloninger, who has lost an amazing 90
pounds and turned away banana pud-
ding; and Dr. Allen Clark, the medical
director of the new Senior Life Care
which opens in Gastonia in November.
Ray Goforth was master of cere-
monies, Jeff Whittington was a one-
man bluegrass band for the event held
at Morningside, The Boot Scooters en-
tertained with line dancing, and it was a
fun competition. The judges were the
last to sample the great food as the au-
dience watched us take a bite or more
from every dish and rank them 1-5 and
comment on appearance, quality, etc.
The Chefs ranked high on presentation
as well as taste.
Born in Northern Ireland, Chef
Morana moved to the US in 1988 and
her first experience in a professional
kitchen came at age 14. She served us
~ Cowboy Caviar, (a one-dish meal of a
variety of country vegetables) Baby
Back BBQ Ribs with corn on the cob’
muffin, potato salad and banana pud-
ding for dessert.
Tyrone Corbitt also developed a pas-
sion for good food at a young age. His
menu was Granny’s Fresh Garden
Bites, country buttermilk fried chicken
with macaroni and cheese, green beans
with cherry tomatoes, and homemade
sweet potato pie. ain
Playground refurbishing

Daryl Dixon, Mayor Rick Murphrey, Rick Ford, Mike Gaffney and David Smith, left to right,
look over the’ refurbishing on the children’s plaground Monday. Dixon, Construction Supervi-
sor for the City, has been working with his crew to pressure wash all of the elements at the
park, replace cracked and damaged wood and then seal and add mulch, all environmentally
safe for the children. The playground was built in 2001 in one week with the help of over
2,000 volunteers. The playground will remain closed to the public until renovations are fin-
ished, with the expected completion on August 2.
Chef Sherri Marana, first place winner,
and Chef Tyrone Corbitt, runner-up.
Both good cooks, they work with
special diets and dietary needs, to the
benefit of the residents at the two facil-
ities they serve.
Since I was raised in the country, I
was really sold on the fried chicken,
green beans with tomatoes, sweet po-
tato pie, and potato salad. Since the
theme was country with a bluegrass
twist, Marana’s Cowboy Caviar was a
big hit and her homemade barbecue
sauce for the entrée was exceptional.
Corn on the Cob Muffin was a treat as
well as banana pudding.
Everything on the menu was a culi-
nary delight. Some of the prize-winning
recipes I will share with readers of The
Herald.
Auditions set
for “Red Velvet
. Cake War”
Kings Mountain Little
Theatre Inc. will conduct au-
ditions for “The Red Velvet
Cake War,” on Monday,
Aug. 5, and Tuesday, Aug. 6,
at 7 p.m. at Joy Performance
Center, 202 S. Railroad Av-
enue. ;
Veteran KMLT Director
' Jim Champion will direct the
comedy with roles available
for four men and eight
women.
In this riotously funny
Southern-fried comedy, the
three Verdeen cousins —
Gaynelle, Peaches and
Jimmy Wyvette — could not
have picked a worse time to
throw their family reunion.
Their outrageous antics have
delighted local gossips in the
small town of Sweetgum
(just down the road from
Fayro) and the eyes of Texas
are upon them, as their self-
righteous Aunt LaMerle is
quick to point out.
Hospice Cleveland County recognized
as a We Honor Veterans program partner
Having “accidentally”
crashed her minivan through
the bedroom wall of her hus-
band’s’ girlfriend’s dou-
blewide, Gaynelle is one
“Hospice Cleveland County is pleased to
have recently partnered with the We Honor
Veterans program,” said Patti Ellis McMurry,
Vice President of Access. “Veterans may
have expetiences from their military service ’
that present unique needs at the end of life
and we want to be prepared to provide ex-
cellent care to these men and women who
have sacrificed so much for our country.
Only 33% of veterans are enrolled in the VA
to receive their entitled benefits and we want
to educate and assist veterans and families in
obtaining these benefits. i
Also, VA medical facilities care for only
4% of veterans at the end of life; 96% die in
the community. Twenty-six million veterans
are alive today; 25% of all deaths in the U.S.
are veterans; and more than 1,800 veterans
die each day. This is a large segment of the
population who needs our care and needs our
understanding of their unique needs.”
To help provide care and support that re-
flect the important contributions made by
these men and women, Hospice Cleveland
County has become a national partner of We
Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign de-
veloped by the National Hospice and Pallia-
tive Care Organization (NHPCO) in
collaboration with the Department of Veteran
Affairs (VA).
As a We Honor Veterans partner, Hospice
Cleveland County will implement ongoing
veteran-centered education for their staff and
volunteers to help improve the care they pro-
vide to the veterans they proudly serve. The
nation is seeing many of the men and women
who served in World War II and the Korean
War pass away — and the number of deaths
of Vietnam veterans is beginning to rise.
The We Honor Veterans campaign pro-
vides tiered recognition to organizations that
demonstrate a systematic commitment to im-
proving care for veterans. “Partners” can as-
sess their ability to serve veterans and, using
resources provided as part of the campaign,
integrate best practices for providing end-of-
life care to veterans into their organization.
