Homework IV of Bright Hill
The little house shook. Everybody stopped short even the trucks and earthmover.
Riff Yardly drove his blue slowly through the crowd, stopped and climbed out. He held up a paper. “Judge Martin Kline signed a court order this morning.” He said. “Nothing can be done to this house until Judge Kline has a hearing about it. The town officials will meet after the New Year holiday. There are enough votes so Bright Hill will be named as a historic house.”
Jacob Samuels looked at the sad little house with its now broken windows and falling stones. “Now I have to buy it back.” He said. “But I do not have enough money.”
“We have some saved.” said Riff as he looked toward Shantao. Then Mrs. Son stepped forward, “We have some extra too, Mr. Samuels. You will take and my husband can help with the work. All over the little hill, people began to speak up, offering money and willing hands to work, even one of the workmen.
Church bells far off played joy to the world. Riff stepped to his open car. “The people of friends make a wonderful drink call champagne.” He smiled. “I was saving this for New Year eve, but December 29th is close enough.” Riff raised some bottles and passed them into the crowd.
The church bells far away played should all the friendship before god. Then Riff turned to Jacob Samuels, help a bottle high and said in a loud voice. “Here’s to Jacob Samuels and all the people in the Bright Hill community. You are the spirit of a real America.”
And the voices of Yardly family and Son family and Cuma family and the voices of all the people who came to Bright Hill from all around the world rose up to meet the bells with happy shouts and bright song.

This is the VOA Special English Development Report.
Today we have the second of the two reports, explaining how to prepare fish by drying or smoking them for the future use. We talked last week about the first steps of cleaning and salting freshly caught fish. Internet users who miss that report can find it in the voaspecialenglish.com.

To dry fish, you will need either a drying table or a place to hang them. If a table is used, it should have a top made of wire screen or thin pieces of wood with space between each piece. Lay the clean wet salt fish on top of the table. Do not let them touch each other. Make sure that air can reach the fish from all sides, including the top and bottom. Build a small smoky fire under the drying table for the first day to keep the flies away. After that, you can keep the flies away by covering the fish with a thin cloth. Do not let the cloth touch the fish. Fish taste better if they are out of bright sunlight when they are being dried. For best results, put the drying table under a tree. Turn the fish over every other day. Small fish will dry in about three days if the air is dry. Large fish will take a week or ten days to dry. After the fish have dried, place them in the basket. Cover them with big paper or large leaves. Then put the basket in the cold dry place not on the ground.

To smoke the fish, you must first remove as much of the salt water as possible. The smoking can be done in the large round metal container. Remove the top of the drum and cut a small opening on the one side at the bottom. Cover the top with strong wire screen. This is where you put the fish. Build a small fire in the drum by reaching in through the opening at the bottom.

Wood from fruit trees makes good fuel for your fire. Such wood will give the smoked fish good color and taste.
Hard woods such as hickory, oak and ash also burn well. It is important to keep the fire small so that it does not burn the fish. You want a lot of smoke but very little flame. One way to get a lot of smoke is to use green wood, not dried wood. You should smoke the fish for five days or longer if you plan to keep them for a long time. After you finish smoking the fish, remove them and let them cool. And then wrap them in clean paper. Put the fish in baskets and keep them in the cool dry place off the ground. Dry fish must be completely dry until they are eaten.

And that’s the VOA Special English Development Report.
