Despite the strong gusts of wind, Winter Texans enjoyed the entertainment, the trinkets, and the food, which included free tamales as the visitors came across the international bridge over the Rio Grande River. The fun began even before leaving the U.S. side, with WinSee TOURIST pg. 24 Thank you for all that you do This season is ending, and I hate to see it go. We always enjoy your time with us, and our time with you, and we sure are going to miss it while you are gone. After a couple of years with a slow down of activities and not much to attend, we were so thankful to get out this year. We wish we could have attended more events, because there was just so much to do. We were so happy to see parks reopening and letting people in this season. It was nice to see things as they should be at most places. After See THANK YOU pg. 14 This season has been a blast! Despite a knee injury at the beginning of the season, I was able to get out there a bit and enjoy some time with you. It took me a while, and I know we missed a lot at the beginning of the season, but we still had some fun once the season really started picking up in January. It was a pleasure to get out to attend events where parks were giving to their communities or had made special items for the veterans in their parks. It was also heartwarming to see events held in memory of those lost, or to help support a family who lost a loved one. Your love for those you surround yourself with is a wonderful thing and makes me feel blessed to be but a small part of it – whether I was able to attend or just include some of what you do in the Winter Texan Times. We have truly enjoyed getting to know you this year. We have been able to connect with you this year more than we have in previous years. Yes, things were a little slow last year, but you sure made up for it this year. We have enjoyed meeting activity directors, Wintertainers™, volunteers, and all of those in between. My husband and I have always had a fondness of the Winter Texan community. He saw this paper from its very first issue in 1987 and now strives to continue what his grandmother and dad built. I grew up surrounded by two Winter Texan parks. Our family befriended several of the residents each year. I remember one couple from Washington that brought us apples every year. They eventually had to stop visiting, but their children visited one year, just Thanks for coming to Texas!

Veterans Blvd • Palmview, Tx 78572 (956) 432-0300 • www.cityofpalmview.com Medical • Dining • Events & Festivals When The World Is Full Of Choices Thank You For Choosing Us! Come Back & See Us In The Fall Rick Villarreal Mayor Jose Luis Perez Mayor Pro-Tem Javier Ramirez Councilman Alexandra Flores Councilwoman Arlando Nacianceno Councilman Joel Garcia Sr. Councilman Michael Leo City Manager Little’s vision lives on through quilting group Submitted by Ruth Filz Martha Little and her husband Irv first came to Palm Gardens RV Park in Harlingen in 2008 and enjoyed the area, finally buying a place in 2010. Martha came from a long line of quilters. Her grandmother made quilts out of sugar sacks while her mother used old clothing. Martha’s youngest daughter is also learning to quilt. When she first came to Palm Gardens, Martha brought her sewing machine and material. During the first year she had other quilters from the park to her house for lessons. Once she had a few other people, they started quilting at the hall. In the spring of 2010, Martha learned she had cancer and had chemo treatments, resulting in the loss of her hair. During the chemo sessions, she met other sewers and discussed making chemo caps. Her quilt guild in Port Perry, Canada obtained a couple of patterns and made several caps. Martha lived with the cancer until her death in May 2014. During this period, she joined a cancer support group at Hearth Place in Toronto. The group provided support for the patient plus the family and is run solely on support from the public. The Port Perry Quilt Guild made several caps that were donated to Hearth Place. After Martha died, her husband Irv approached the quilters at Palm Gardens and spoke to Sherry Polk about making caps. That year, residents made over 50 caps that were later supplied to Hearth Place. Each cap was given to a cancer patient who had lost her hair during chemo. Several of the caps made by Palm Gardens were also donated to St. Jude’s for the children cancer patients. For the past seven years, every February Palm Gardens residents get together to make cancer caps that are given to Texas Oncology and Valley Cancer Associates in Harlingen and also send some back to Port Perry, Canada with Irv. Over the years, the group has also made and donated port pillows (provides cushion between the chemo port and the car’s seat belt). This year residents obtained patterns to also crochet and knit caps. Thanks to Martha’s vision and the initiative she started, and to the residents of Palm Gardens who cut and sewed caps and port pillows, who crocheted and knitted caps, and who provided monetary donations, we are happy to donate to Texas Oncology and Valley Cancer Associates in Harlingen and to Port Perry in Canada. This year’s donations were 186 tee-shirt material caps, 86 cotton material caps, 250 crochet or knit caps, and 125 port pillows.

Fred Strom Duane Yurek Winter Texan Survey DrawingWinners Robert Walrath (Not Pictured) Congratulations Thousands of stitches sewn to thank veterans Submitted by E. Louise Baker, Tropic Star Quilter Tropic Star Park hosted a very special event on Sunday, March 6. Fifty-six veterans were honored with the presentation of a patriotic quilt made by the quilting ladies of Tropic Star. This special event began three years ago. Someone shared the idea of honoring the veterans in our park with a patriotic quilt. Identifying the veterans in our park was completed by a dedicated committee. Their results were shocking. How could our quilting group produce all the quilts needed? However, work began, and word spread about the project. Soon many folks were supporting the large project. The quilters sewed, others cut the fabric, some pressed as the sewing progressed. Some quilters made the tops at their summer homes. Many contributed funds to purchase fabric and pay for the quilting. What an exciting adventure. To date, 108 quilts have been presented to the veterans residing in Tropic Star Park. The first quilts were presented to 30 veterans in 2020. It was such a wonderful feeling to honor our veterans who had given so much. They made great sacrifices so that we Americans can enjoy a peaceful nation. Their sacrifice gives all of us the freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom to protest, the right to a fair trial and the right to vote. The project began with honoring those veterans who had served in World War II. Later veterans from other conflicts were honored in the following years. The pandemic did not prevent the dedicated quilters from honoring 20 veterans at an outdoor presentation in 2021. Folks watched, cheered, and See STITCHES pg. 19

The group loaded into a 50-passenger old painted school bus with an ‘excellent guide,’ Anthony Gomez, from Rocket Ranch. The tour, starting at 8 a.m., lasted about th ee hours. The group got the chance to see the launch pad, the rocket building area, and use the Rocket Ranch viewing platform that is located right on the Rio Grande. The group was also shown a video of the past launches. Haga said he highly recommends Rocket Ranch to any other Winter Texan groups looking for the opportunity for a “real out of this world experience” tour of the Space X grounds.

They ate, drank and were entertained – or entertaining - as the much-loved onion, known as the “million-dollar baby” took center stage at the annual festival that returned after a COVID-19 pandemic halt. It was clear from the hoard of people that they were ready to get out for a beautiful day and enjoy the Texas Onion Fest, which celebrates the development of what has become a world-famous onion developed in Weslaco by Dr. Leonard Pike at the Texas A&M University Extension Service. The festival, which began in 1989, offers cooking demos, a car show, the 1015 Market, dancing horses, an onion-eating contest and more. It also offers onions, plenty of onions. Bags of onions were given away; onions were a key ingredient in many of the foods being sold – especially blooming onions. “This has been a tradition in Weslaco for a long time,” said James Cano, who was helping the Weslaco Chamber of Commerce distribute some of the free onion bags. “It has created a movement for people to come out once a year and enjoy this.” Linda and Dale Graham walked away from the Freddie Flav’z restaurant tent, each with a blooming onion that was much more than onion. It was more like a blooming onion on steroids. “It’s heavy,” Linda said. “There’s meat in there.” The couple, from Elsworth, Illinois, has been visiting the Valley for 11 years and lives in Country Sunshine RV Park in Weslaco. True onion lovers, Dale said he enjoys grilling onions while preparing liver. He’s also a big fan of onion sandwiches – just bread and sliced raw onions. “Oh no, I can’t go that far,” Linda said. “But I do like them with roast beef or on roasted sandwiches.” Frank Macias, owner of Frankie Flav’z Craft Burgers and BBQ, said he didn’t want to make just an ordinary onion blossom so, like his burgers, he came up with something unique. “It’s a brisket blossom,” he said. “It has chopped brisket, pico de gallo, queso fresco, barbeque sauce and some cilantro. What better toppings, it all blends in well.” Sindy Norris is a converted Winter Texan from Iowa who visited for four years. She said the people in the park converted her.

Our Winter Texan friends are departing for their summer homes. No doubt your friends and family missed you while you were gone. But we are going to miss you also. Please have a safe trip home and come back again next winter. We will be waiting for you. We would all be remiss if we did not take the time to say thank you for all that you do for the Rio Grande Valley. You are like a breath of fresh air when you give of your time, your talents and your love and compassion to the people of South Texas. How could we do it without you? So many of you look for ways to contribute to us. Not just with the purchases you make but with other contributions that cannot be measured. Thank you. First of all, we need to be reminded of the used and outgrown winter coats that you bring to contribute to our needy families and children. Cold winter days are rare in our Rio Grande Valley. But when they do occur many children will stay home from school for lack of warm clothing. The coats you bring help to keep those children warm and in school. Thank you. Not all families are able to pay for tutors to help their children learn to read or do their sums. A wonderful program called HOSTS is always looking for volunteers. And you answered the call. You “Helped One Student To Succeed” and that is what HOSTS stands for. What a blessing you are. Thank you. And how about the quilting bees where so many of you get together to make and donate lap quilts for those in nursing homes or in a veterans’ hospital? Or perhaps you were able to knit or crochet a small afghan to wrap around cold and weary shoulders. Your loving hands bring comfort to those who perhaps are no longer able to be out and about. Thank you. At Christmas time you bring joy to those who might not receive a gift from Santa if it were not for you. You are very, very special. Thank you. Please have a safe trip home. Until we meet again. Quilting ladies from Aladdin Villas made quilts for resdients in need in Penitas.

Harlingen Ave • Harlingen, TX 78550 Las Vegas Cafe Since 1964 Try Our Famous Enchiladas Pirate’s Landing brightened my day It was an o v e r c a s t day as I sat inside P i r a t e ’ s Land i ng , l o o k i n g over a varied menu that appeals to adults and children alike. But, hey, I was in Port Isabel, by South Padre Island, so who’s complaining? The temperature outside was about 72, the music was at a perfect volume, so people didn’t have to scream over it and, after a couple weeks of cold, windy, gloomy weather it was a nice change of pace – and that was even before I ate, which tells me it’s gonna be a good day. I ordered the seafood stuffed mushrooms, covered in Alfredo sauce and some parmesan cheese. I forgot from my last trip here not just how tasty this appetizer is, but how filling it is. I topped it off with some Pirates Landing hot sauce and was on my way to a day of deliciousness. I ordered the ranchero shrimp. It felt a little strange that they came with rice, charro beans and tortillas but, hey, we are on the U.S./Mexico border so why not? I could smell the plate before it arrived as my server walked toward my booth. When he placed it in front of me, a smile came across my face seeing how many ready-for-me only shrimp were laying around with the red ranchero sauce and onions and peppers mixed within. As a special bonus, two fresh rings of raw onion lay on top. One way to get to my heart is with onions, grilled or raw, so these two slices were an unexpected bonus. The food came out quickly and at perfect temperature. The shrimp danced their way from my mouth to my stomach like a carnival ride and the extra side of coleslaw just made it a well-rounded and terrific experience, as always, at Pirate’s Landing. It may have been overcast when I walked in, but it was a sunny day for me anyway. Pirate’s Landing is located at the foot of the causeway in Port Isabel’s Lighthouse District. They are open daily for lunch and dinner at 11 a.m. You can check out their menu online at www. PiratesLandingRestaurant.com.

Winter Texan band thanks local venues The Rio Grande Valley Gid-RDone Bluegrass Band wants to send a huge thank you to the Valley parks and venues for hosting them this year, and previous years. With the help of attendees to their events, the band was able to raise over $45,000 this season. The funds will be donated to St. Jude’s Research Hospital. “The generosity of our supporters during 2021-2022 has been absolutely wonderful,” said member Wayne Uncer. “Our most heartfelt gratitude to everyone supporting and donating to our cause.” The band is a traditional bluegrass band filled with Rio Grande Valley Winter Texans. It is a great bunch of talented musicians sharing wonderful harmonies and some of the best instrumentals you’ll hear in Texas. They have performed all over the Valley for the past six years raising money for St. Jude’s. Art Walk kicks off Irish Fest The McAllen Art Walk will kickoff the Irish Fest on Friday, April 1, at the McAllen Incubator, located at 601 N Main St; premiering the gallery exhibit for the month of April. The exhibit is a multimedia and interactive art experience created by a team of Rio Grande Valley artists in all types of mediums, from classic acrylic on canvas to textural projections, photography, and guided storytelling. The exhibit titled “This Dark Land,” explores the myth and folklore of the Celtic Isles, transporting the visitor through involved surrealism and eerie dreamscapes. Drawing from the Irish landscape and its dark mythologies, more than seven artists and a team of students will build an enchanted world that engages all the senses and inspires a sense of wonder. Make it a night out in the McAllen Arts District for Aprils Art Walk to get a first look. The event welcomes you back on April 2nd, for the South Texas Irish Festival from 12 p.m.-7 p.m. where the featured cultural experience engages all the senses. From visual and interactive art exhibits, music workshops, family games and storytelling too. A free whiskey tasting flight of three varying casks will be offered on the mezzanine of the McAllen Incubator, a prime view that will let you see the entire festival at once. With all day entertainment and traditional Irish Bread Bowl stew and Shepherd’s Pie by Chef Adrian Luna, whiskey will round off the fest experience authentically and deliciously! Raising Cane’s, as a sponsor to the Irish Fest, will also be providing a GREEN lemonade stand free to festival goers while supplies last. Be sure to follow the South Texas See IRISH FEST pg. 19

Speaking of that warmness, you do so much for the communities you live in – whether it is for your park, a special person in your park, or an organization in your city – you really do a lot while you are here. The work and care you put forth is so appreciated by all of those that receive your blessings. Many made quilts this year, some made bears, others had fundraising events or collected food items for organizations. Some held special events to honor those that have passed, others held fundraisers to support a lost loved one. Your dedication, your caring hearts, and your love for others is truly overwhelming and a great thing to see. We wish to extend a special thank you to all the Winter Texans that perform community service while you are here in the Valley. These organizations struggle a bit when you leave, and your generosity and caring spirit are greatly appreciated. I know they are always happy to see you return – as we are too. Some of your efforts will be seen in this issue, as they have in many other issues this year. We have been blessed to be able to attend some of these events and that you share these events with us as well. It is uplifting to see your zest for life and all the fun times we have had together this year. We have been able to attend dances, performances, and other events where we have enjoyed meeting you. We have been so blessed by sharing time with you at events and just talking to you. We feel we are in the right place and have been blessed by your words, your encouragement, and your actions. We also feel blessed to have great entertainment that visits the Valley each year to provide outstanding shows and music to the parks and other events.

COME SEE US Are You Experiencing: We Have A Genuine Commitment To Your Health “I put onions on just about everything,” she said. “I don’t know about an onion sandwich, but maybe with the 1015. It’s the no cry onion. You can chop it, chop it, chop it, and never shed a tear. It has been my favorite onion even before I came down here.” People stopped at merchant booths, where vendors sold candles, clothing, jewelry and knick knacks, a plethora of accessories and many other items. One booth used a liquid substance to create “piercings” and several Winter Texans lined up to see how they looked with a temporary nose piercing. The liquid hardens and then is easily washed off. All of this celebration in homage to an onion. Ironically, it was enough to make a personified 1015 onion cry. ONION From pg. 10 gement. Without them, we would be sittin’ t w i d d l i n g our thumbs with nothing much to do. We are truly thankful for all that you do and bring to the Valley. You folks are good people.

Have a wonderful summer with your family and friends. Until we meet again… Santa (Tripp Wright) passing out gifts to kids in the community.

Good Friday, March 27, 1964, 5:36 p.m. Southern Alaska is struck by the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in North America— the second most powerful in world history. At 9.2 on the Richter scale, its violent shaking causes deaths and major damage inAnchorage, Valdez, and other towns. But the tsunamis that it generates produce even more death and destruction—and not just in Alaska, but also as far away as California. They even do damage in Hawaii and Japan. Southern Alaska is an area that George Plafker knows quite well from his many summer hiking expeditions there. But flying above it, two days after the earthquake, assessing the aftermath as a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, he is shocked by what he sees. It is not only the structural damage, but the changes to the landscape itself, that draw his attention. After many observations, both from the air and on the ground, Mr. Plafker shifts his career focus to the study of earthquakes. Years later, his work leads to the confirmation of the theory of plate tectonics, the idea that the earth’s crust consists of different sections, or plates, all moving in slow motion in relation to one another. This explains many geographic features of the earth, as well as earthquakes, and is a major scientific advance. Written by Henry Fountain, and first published in 2017, The Great Quake is a tale of the fury of nature, the story of how an earthquake upended the lives of individuals and communi t ies—and of how it left an indelible mark on science itself. Some copies of the book available for check out to those who sign up for the book discussion, or you can stop by the Reference Desk, or call at 956-580-8754, and the library will try to obtain a copy for you via Interlibrary Loan.
