Pat's Chat Pat Ridpath. Burns ville 472-5102 or 888-294-5401 CIVIL WAR SCENES: Frank Strader is in a black suit and TRICIA STRADER, as Confederate spy Belle planter's hat. Tricia Strader is to his right, in the white dress. Boyd, slips a note to a Confederate officer. Columnist Plays a Part in Civil War Film Hi, hope all are doing better there. Coming to you again from Kansas City, MO, where I am helping my daughter as she recovers from inju- ries received in a car wreck on June 12. I received this e-mail from Tricia Strader, whose parents are Burnsville High School alumni. Tricia and her family are active in reenactment ac- tivities. She is now West Virginia Commissioner of the Clan Campbell Society. If you have a Scottish back- ground (don't most of us in Central West Virginia have this?) perhaps you can become a member of this Society. Here is what she writes: Dad (Frank Strader) and I were on set again Thursday, July 2. for Civil War movie filming. Historical Enter- tainment is.producing what they hope will be a ten-part series for TV about the advance and retreat ofLee's Army of Northern Virginia from Gettysburg, and personal stories of the war from diaries, etc. I played Belle Boyd in Hagerstown, MD, during the advance of Lee's army toward Gettysburg; I passed a Confederate Major a note. A local woman in Hagerstown, Lutie Keaihofer, kept a diary and mentioned meeting notables like Lee and seeing Belle Boyd. Dad played a local citizen on the street. Iwas a lady in black mourning clothes during scenes shot of the re- treat back through Hagerstown, after the battle of Gettysburg in July, 1863. We shot it on Prospect Street m Hagerstown. Other locales were used for battle scenes. It may be on TV by 2010. May event each year. I could use some volunteers to help spread the word. by attending events and help- ing out at the Campbell tent. There are many surnames that fall under the Clan of Campbell. For example, we have the MacTavish ('Son of Thomas' in Gaelic) sept, descended from a Tho- Campbell. I'm connected through my grandfather Cecil Kuhl's mother, Barbara Loudon, because of the name Loudon. In the 1300s. a Sir Duncan Campbell married Susanna. heiress of Loudoun, and'the branch became the Earls of Loudoun. For more in for- matron. folks can log onto Thanks!" In an e-mail I received, I learned that family and friends of John "Guppy" Gibson are very concerned about the progress of his healing from the surgeries he has had. He is not supposed to talk at all until he goes back to the doctor on August 6. That would be very difficult. There are other problems, too. Please keep him in your prayers. I had to change my plans tbout when to return home. Robin still does not have full use of her arms and finds it hard to perform the activities of daily living. As it stands now. I will return on August 25. John is coopera- tive with this and doing quite well tending for himself. He is a sweet- heart, for sure. I got an interesting magazine or pamphlet from a restaurant Robin i, is- ited with friends this week (she can "'eat" with her right hand. which is in a removeable brace that lets her use her fingers, though she cannot bend In other news, I've been named the _ the broken wristL Eden Alley has west Virginia Commissi0ne'of'ttte ..... ma'tSS;'+Vegetartata choices on their Clan Campbell Society of North America, a heritage organization for anyone with Scottish Campbell lin- eage. That means I'm calling all Campbells, or those of the Campbell Clan through "septs," or family con- nection, to join the Society and help support their Scottish heritage by at- tending Highland Games events any- where they can, such as Clarksburg's menu. The pamphlet is put out by PETA, People for the Ethical Treat- ment of Animals. Itlistedmany people who are vegetarians because of their love for animals. A quote from Sir Paul McCartney says, "I am a veg- etarian, because I realize that even little chickens suffer pain and tear. experience a range of feelings and emotions, and are as intelligent as mammals, including dogs, cats. and even some primates." Others say they are healthier, thinner (that never helped reel. and feel better as vegetarians. Hard Rock Cafe. Denny's (where any burger is available with Boca Burgers rather than meat), Chili's. Johnny Rockets. Red Robin; and Burger King "all boast briskly selling veggie burgers on their menus." Taco Bell also has bean burritos, and their Crunch Wrap Supremes can be changed to add pota- toes and guacamole and no meat. They listed several free recipes that include no meat or dairy. Their website ts wwv, Walmart says they are getting rid of all of the vegetarian products from their shelves, as well as their soy cheeses, etc. I think they are making a big mistake. Here is an easy dairy-free dessert: Chocolate Mousse 1 1/4 lbs. silken tofu; 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted. Puree tofu in a blender until smooth. Add the melted chocolate and blend thoroughly. Pour into 6 individual dessert bowls and chill. Optional: Dust with powdered sugar or top with a strawberry or other ber- ries. Now isn't that simple! One of the criticisms I received from my last recipe.was about substituting Sptenda for the sugar. Robin is.dia- betic is why I did that. although I believe that just the bananas would havemade the bars sweet enough. Also. I would prefer a more natural sweet- ener. too. such as maple syrup, un- sweetened applesauce or jmce. or any of the um-efined,'natural sweeteners. 1; do believe thavmany of our society's health problems stem from the refin- ing of our foods and the chemical addi- tives m so many foods, not to mention toxins found in non-organic foods. We all have to do the best we can with what is available to us and with what knowl- edge we have. Maranatha- signs increasingly show the truth of that word! Jesus IS com- ing! MT.
