NO TONERS, PLEASE DROP OFF LOCATIONS: • Horizon Community Bank • Quartzsite Library • Senior Center • General Store • Business Chamber Sponsored by Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite COWBOY CAVIER bY Helen Corbitt INGREDIENTS: 1 (11oz) can white shoepeg or yellow corn, drained & rinsed 1 (15oz) can black beans, drained & rinsed 1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes, with juice 2 ripe avocados, diced 2/3 c. red onion, chopped 1/4 c. olive oil 1/4 c. red wine vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced 3/4 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cumin 2/3 c. cilantro, chopped a few dashes of Tabasco (optional) Combine all ingredients, adding avocados last, and toss gently. Serve with chips. I normally don't use the Tabasco since the Rotel tomatoes add a little spice, but if you like extra spice...go for it! NOTE: my store was out of shoepeg corn, so I used canned yellow corn and still turned out great! If you don't have black beans, use black-eyed peas, or whatever you've got! Or if you have a plethora of fresh tomatoes from your garden, use those instead of the Rotel. It's a very versatile recipe and can be adapted to your liking.

The economy is showing signs of recovery even with the rising cost of gas. Many people who held on to their car during the recession are now looking to replace it with a more fuel effi cient one. If you are one of those people, you have to fi gure out what to do with your car. If your vehicle does not get good gas mileage, has a lot of miles, is more than 5 years old or is not in good condition, the dealership won't offer you much for it as a trade in. They won't want it because there is no demand for it. It will be diffi cult to sell it privately for the same reason. One alternative is to sell it for a couple of hundred dollars to a junk yard. A better alternative is to donate your car to charity. Cars4Charities will gladly take your old car, no matter what shape it is in. In return for your generosity, you will get a tax deduction of $500 or more. They have hundreds of charities that can be helped by your car donation.
