2 lbs. pork tenderloin
3 tbsps sugar
Cut tenderloin across grain lengthwise into pieces 6-7 inches wide. Mix remaining ingredients, pour over meat and marinate overnight, turning to coat evenly.
Line small roasting pan
with alum. foil and add 1-2 inches of water. Arrange meat on a rack
above the water. (This prevents the meat from drying out. Add more
water during cooking time, if necessary.) Roast 1-1/4 hours at 375
degrees, turning meat after 45 minutes. Slice very thin and serve hot
or cold as an hors d’oeuvre. Can also be served over rice, added to
stir-fry vegetables or to soup. Serves 8-10 as hors d’oeuvres or 4-5 as

Harry Miller dies; stunning blow to community
The South Reporter last week carried a story captioned, “Harry Miller to be home soon.” Thursday morning, before most folks had received their newspaper, the news was broadcast over radio and television that Harry had died in John Gaston Hospital at 6:45 a.m. This was a stunning blow to the millions of people who had rejoiced when it appeared as though he had won the battle for his life the previous week. Harry had been trapped in a cistern for 20 hours during sub-freezing temperatures. The story was publized nationwide. The many who had helped in the rescue were proud when they were told Harry would live. He was able to get out of bed and walk around. In fact, he’d been up walking just shortly before he died. He died of a blood clot in his heart. Services were held Tuesday at New Hope Cemetery in Laws Hill. So now, Harry Miller is “home.”
