NO NEED TO RUN TO THE BIG CITY Drive Less Than A Half Hour Come To Winchester: Valley Pike . Northern Shenandoah Valley's Largest Auto Group Your Satisfaction Is Our Reputation And Our Future! The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is a 26.2-mile road race run in late October through Ar- lington, Virginia, and Washing- ton, D.C. It has been run every year since 1976, and as of 2006, is the nation's 4th-largest race by entrants. The race is also known as "The People's Mara- thon" because it is the largest race that offers neither prize money nor appearance fees to draw elite runners. The 33rd MCM occurred on Sunday, October 26, 2008 with Andrew Dumm winning the men's title and Cate Fenster winning the women's title. Both were first-time marathoners. This year, there were 30,000 registered to race and 18,261 finishers. Local finishers in- cluded Matt and Laura Knott of Harpers Ferry (left), Rhonda Davis of the Eastern Shore of MD and her sister Sheila Evers of Charles Town. Matt's time was 5:05 and Laura's was 4:37. Barbara Hooper 615 S. Seminary Street 725-7742 What was I thinking last week when I forgot to tell you when the "Holiday Entertain- ing Valley Style" event would take place, a real booboo. The date is this Sunday, November 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Holi- day Inn Express. The event is to support the Friends of Hap- py Retreat. Cost is $15 in ad- vance and $20 at the door. Call Friends of Happy Retreat for tickets. The following article from Hospice was hard for me to present, but I do believe we all should do this. Are You Over the Age of 18? If the answer is yes, you should complete an Advance Directive. The following work- shop will assure that your end- of-life issues are honored and relieve your family of having to make difficult decisions. It will be held at from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Board of Education office. Register with the Jefferson County Schools Adult Educa- tion Program at 728-9237. Instruction on Golf When my nephew, Bill Hunt- er, was 15 years old, he was playing some pretty fair golf. (His father, Jim Hunter, was club champion for mnnv years for the club in Harrisonburg, Va.). However, when he wrote a paper called "Instruction on Golf," which when we read, we had to snicker at his lofty ideas knowing that even the best of us have a bad day or so in our golfing days. Billy just hadn't gotten there, yet. Here is his paper, written many years ago. "Golf is one of the finest games available, if you don't get mad easily and are well-off financially. ' the first thing to remember in golf is to grip the club firm- ly with both hands. It is best to grasp the end with the handle and point, the head away from you. "A small ball, with dents on the cover, is then placed on a wooden peg called a golf tee. Af- ter placing it on the tee again, a stance is taken to steady the golfer (some golfers need steadying). "A good point to concentrate on is to keep the head down (especially if there are women golfers near). The head of the club is then drawn back and released with substantial en- ergy. When the ball is struck it will travel two hundred yards (if you are a pro, lucky or if the course is straight down hill). Otherwise, the shot could go anywhere. "The object of the game is to get the little ball in the hole (not the one with the sand in it). This is done usually with a right-angled club called a put- ter. The putter is used on a smooth portion of grass called a green (and on the caddy who sneezes). "After eighteen holes have been played, it is often neces- sary to have a nineteenth hole in the clubhouse. This is done with various shots, too. Some- times it is necessary to pur- chase new clubs to replace the ones lost in the woods, wrapped around a tree, at the bottom of the lake or sold at an angry mo- ment. "At any rate, golf is one of the most relaxing games in which a person may participate." Recipe Corner It was nice to hear that you readers missed having a recipe in this column last week. Here is one from Jane Stone, who says it is delicious. Potato Shrimp Chowder 2 cans, 10 3/4 oz. cream of potato soup; 1 can, lloz. mexi- corn, drained; 1 package, 10 oz. frozen broccoli florets, thawed and cut in bite-size pieces; 1 1/2 cups milk; 8 oz. frozen cooked small shrimp, thawed; 1/4 tea- spoon dried minced onion. In medium pot, combine soup, mexmorn, broccoli, milk and onion over medium-high heat, bring to boil, stirring fre- quently. Reduce heat to medi- um-low; simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir m shrimp, simmer until heat- ed through, about 2 minutes. Serve with garlic bread. Birthdays & Anniversaries Happy birthday to: June Ad- ams, Darrin Hardy, Donald Miller, Betty W.
