New postmaster

Maugansville has a new postmaster. Alan Strasburg of Beaver Creek has been with the postal service for 32 years. He was the postmaster for Big Pool and has been assigned to the Maugansville post office. Alan is married to Julie, who is the director of the Red Cross. He has two children and three grandchildren. When you get the opportunity, stop in and say hello and welcome him to the community.

Summer salads

This is the time of year I love making salads, especially if I can keep from turning the stove on during the week. If you like potato salad, do try out the recipe below:

4 pounds red potatoes, halved
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
5 hard-cooked eggs
1 tsp. celery seed
1 cup chopped dill pickles
1/2 tsp. salt
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 tsp. pepper

Place potatoes in a large pot; cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool. Cut potatoes into 3/4 inch cubes. Chop four eggs; slice remaining egg for garnish. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, chopped eggs, pickles and onion. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, celery seed, salt and pepper. Pour over potato mixture and stir gently to coat. Sprinkle with paprika; garnish with sliced egg. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. Yield: 12 to 14 servings.
