Lancaster County. Harnish’s 1941 obituary in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says he was survived by several brothers and sisters, including Henry Harnish, Quarryville; and Marie Harnish, Blytheville, Arkansas.Amish ‘ants’Generally, we think of the Amish as hard workers but relatively low key in an age when many Americans spend much of their time frenetically texting, tweeting and trivia-hunting on hand-held computers.Katie Beiler suggests otherwise in a letter in the May issue of The Diary, an Old Order Amish publication of Amish correspondence produced in Kirkwood.“Someone asked the editor why I did not have a letter in April Diary,” writes Beiler. “He said that I have the Amish disease: busy. I would say the Amish disease is runitis, always running here, there and anywhere, like a bunch of ants.”She continues: “There is something like being too busy. Take time to smell the roses, and spend time with your children while they are young.”Beiler then discusses Chet Beiler (apparently no relation) and state Sen. Lloyd Smucker, the two Republicans who opposed each other for a state Senate seat in April’s primary election. Smucker won.The two candidates have Amish roots and are second cousins. The campaign turned severely negative. This is how Katie Beiler dealt with that:“Some say they were raised Amish, but that is one generation away. Their parents were raised Amish, but left the church long before the boys grew up. They sure don’t act Amish, running each other down in the public news. But how much better are some of the rest of us, picking on those we consider less than we are?”Beiler includes a bit of practical advice for those who discover that humidity has turned their brown sugar into a rock.“Do you have brown sugar that got hard?” she asks. “Put it in a tight container, add a piece of bread, and it gets soft. Of course you wind up with a piece of hard bread, but no problem, that can be soaked in hot milk soup.”So now you know how to soften up your brown sugar before you sprinkle it on your green tomatoes.Jack Brubaker, a retired LNP staff writer, writes “The Scribbler” column twice a week.
