Uvalde Idol contestants compete tomorrow

 
 
 
 
The following was submitted by John Juhasz, English teacher at Uvalde High School.
 
 
After hearing the 2014 Uvalde Idol contestants, many of the more than 1,500 people who heard them sing in two major events commented on how astonished they were at the level of singing talent we have in this town. Trying to copy an enormously successful television series as American Idol was quite a difficult task, but the watching was easy.
 
This year's event will be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow, Dec. 4, and admission is at the door only.
 
During a time of year when people become increasingly busy preparing for the Christmas season, Uvalde Idol offers a relaxing and fun evening in the plush atmosphere of the Uvalde High School Auditorium for only $5. The cost has not changed, but the show is now hosted by the senior class.

Diaz places second at Spinach Festival

 
 
 
 
Dora Diaz’s spinach chicken tamales recently earned her a second-place trophy in a spinach cook-off.
 
The Nov. 15 contest was one of many activities that took place during the 34th-annual Spinach Festival in Crystal City.
 
First-place winner was the team of Jessie and Diana Guerrero of Crystal City. They prepared spinach enchiladas.
 
Diaz said she developed her chicken tamale recipe five years ago and recently began incorporating spinach into the recipe.
 
Her recipe calls for one whole chicken, one pound of fresh raw spinach, five red chili pods, two teaspoons of cumin seeds, half a head of fresh garlic, one and a half teaspoons of salt, white or yellow masa, cleaned and soaked corn husks, a blender and a tamalera pot.
