Herald February. 5 1998 Page 3 p ted for "HMS Pinafore' Despite icy roads and cold winds on January 24, a good group turned out to audition for the Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus spring musical, HMS Pinafore, by Gilbert and Sullivan. "Every year new tal- ent appears, familiar talent returns and decisions are tough," according to producer, Marilyn Ries. Musical director Gary Dahl and director Ward Turner selected acast of 35. Those chosen for leading roles include, Jeff Stiverson, Okanogan, for the part of Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord oftheAdmiralty. Stiverson, a veteran actor of OVOC performed in many Gilbert and Sullivans in- cluding the lead role of Bunthorne in Patience in 1989. Stiverson .will be remembered for a stunning per- formance of King Pelinore in Camelot. Stiverson played another great character as Nicely-Nicely Johnson in Guys and Dolls, and Jeff Douglas in Brigadoon among his many roles. Joel Yelland, Omak was selected to portray Captain Corcoran, com- manding officer of the HMS Pin- afore. Yelland sings with the Okanogan Valley Chorus and pre- miered with OVOC in Fiddler on the Roof, playing the role of Avrahm the bookseller. His son Jaime, who recently played an orphan in Oliver, joined him in that cast. The role of Ralph (pronounced Rate) Rackstraw, able seaman, was awarded to Bob McElderry, Omak, SENIOR NEWS Menu - February 5 thru February 12 Members and friends if your birth- day is on or near the day of serving (lunch) you get to be first in line.

Heartfelt Desserts Rise to the Occasion It is perhaps the last food that would come to mind as a vital part of a perfect Valentine's Day meal. "Bread?" people say and shake their heads. Second only to champagne, they state that chocolate is the key element on the most roman- tic day of the year. "Chocolate is food for the gods!" they shriek, perplexed that anyone could think otherwise. It is indeed. According to Patricia Lousada, author of "Ultimate Chocolate" (DK Publishing), the botanical name for the tree on which the cocoa bean is grown, theobroma cacao, literally means "food for the gods." It was used in the tribal ritu- als of Aztec society and as a popular bitter beverage among Spanish con- quistadors. Evolving slowly in Europe, its sweetness and consis- tency became increasingly refined and eventually emerged in the mid- dle of the 19th century as the choco- late we know today. Lousada say s that the famed lover, CasanOva, considered the seductive qualities of chocolate to surpass those of champagne, and that Madame do Pompadour advised its use as an aphrodisiac. How can !bread possibly compete with that? Referred to as the staff of life, the brick in the food chain and a necessity for the basic sustenance of man, bread is made from grains sprung from seeds and serves as an appropri- ate symbol for life itself; a founclation on which other things are built (Need we mention the sandwich?). In terms of love, as Ursula K. Le Guin famously said,"Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone; it had to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new." Both love and bread are essen- tially, in other words, living things. So, as this Valentine's Day approaches  or any other day you choose to celebrate the love between you and you; mate  whip ql? some Chocolate Bread Pudding, a rec]l'thiit concedes not only those fleeting, ethe- real moments of passion, but the enduring reality of love. Tuesday, Feb. 10 - Cube steak, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, bread, pudding. Thursday, Feb. 12 - Sweet & sour meatballs, mixed vegetables, beets, rice, bread, gingerbread/ topping.

S/R Howard Mehaffey completes basic S/R Howard Mehaffey, son of Howard L. Mehaffey of 601 Indian Canyon Road, Brewster, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois. During the eight-week program, Mehaffey completed a variety of train- ing which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval cus- toms, first aid, fire fghting, water safetyand survival, and shiand aircraft safety. An emphasis is also placed on physical fitness. Mehaffey and other recruits also received instruction on the Navy's core values- -honor, courage and commitment- -and how to apply them in their military performance and personal conduci. Mehaffey joins 55,000 men and women who will enter the Navy this year from all over the country. , Men and women train together :from their first day in the Navy just as they do aboard ships and at shore commands around the world. To re- inforce the team concept, Mehaffey and other recruits also were trained in preventing sexual harassment and ensuring equal opportunity. Even as the naval service gets smaller over the next few years, highly motivated young peoplelike Mehaffey are still finding an opp6rtunity to improve their knowledge and edu- cation as they become part of the most highly technical naval force in history. This year alone the Navy will have more than 57,000 job open- ings and opportunities which include guaranteed training. He is a 1996 graduate of Brewster High School of Brewster.
