River Valley Pioneer Museum | Canadian, Texas

Body
Now that school is out for summer (cue Alice Cooper’s legendary song) and you probably have nowhere to go on vacation, why not come visit your local museum? We are back open full time, 9 am-12 pm and 1 pm-5 pm, Tuesdays through Fridays, and 10 am-2 pm on Saturdays. Come learn about the history of Canadian and Hemphill County in an air-conditioned space. We even have scavenger hunts available for children of all ages. Admission is FREE! Michael Longhofer’s art show titled, Eclectic II, is still on display in our gallery room. The show will remain in our gallery room until the end of August. His works are very different than any-thing else we have shown. I know you will enjoy it!

What’s Cookin’ in Canadian

Kay Brown brought by a large pot of tortilla soup with all the fixings for us to enjoy. It was wonderful, and I called the next day for the recipe. She told me the original recipe came from Linda Thrasher, and over the years, she has added ingredients to make it a family favorite. I like the fact that it was richly flavored without being too salty. The addition of tortilla strips and cheese give you just the right amount of salt.

Some Good News: Canadian-Style

ESPN released a series titled The Last Dance on April 19, documenting the Chicago Bulls and the dynasty they created during the 1990s. Unfortunately, one of the greatest basketball teams to exist was forced to break apart due to circumstances out of their control. Upper management decided to change things, and the “Dream Team” was given one final season.

What's Cookin' in Canadian

My sister and I love kale. She grew the most beautiful hydroponic greens in Hawaii, and we enjoyed it daily, lightly sautéd in olive oil and garlic. She told me about this six-ingredient kale salad that she discovered on the Epicurious website. We made it last week, and it is delicious. Unlike other dressed salads, this one holds up well in the refrigerator to enjoy the next day. —KIM B. MCKINNEY

The Class of 2020 will go down in history. Both high school and college graduates this year face a decimated economy and a pandemic. Not since the Greatest Generation survived the Great Depression and World War II has a generation crossed over into adulthood under such adverse conditions. The main characteristics of the Greatest Generation were that they persevered, they made do, and they survived. The Class of 2020 will do the same.

Hemphill History: Unique character passes thru

Unique Character Passes Thru

Canadian entertained a very unique character Friday and Saturday last week when an old-time cowboy who called himself “Idaho Bill” Pearson, spent the night in our city, on his way to Washington, D.C. He was carrying as his passenger a big cinnamon bear, weighing 650 pounds, which was, during the traveling time, chained to the rear seat of the Ford which the man was driving.
