review all



future bids


Commissioners look for
ways to even playing
field on bid procedure.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
It took less than an hour to
decide, but Columbia County
officials agreed Tuesday to
review the county bidding
process for the next four
months.
County officials decided to
look at reshaping the county's
bid process last month after
,three mowing companies
found inconsistencies in the
contract language when they
submitted proposals to pro-
vide the county with services.
During the opening min-
utes of Tuesday's workshop,
Dale Williams, county manag-
er, said the county has accept-
ed 43 sealed bids for more
than $15 million from 2002 -
2004. The number of prob-
lems, he said, has been mini-
mal, but problemsedo exist.


Commissioner Elizabeth
Porter said she didn't want to
go back and review the prob-
lems the county has had in the
past with awarding bids, but
wanted to streamline the
process because of the grow-
ing number of prospective
vendors for the county.
One of her suggestions to
eliminate problems in the bid
process was to have a pre-
ferred list of vendors that the
county would be able to
choose from.
"That, to me, takes out any
of the last-minute subjectivity
we may encounter," she said.
However, other commis-
sioners were quick to note the
suggestion didn't seem to rec-
ognize new vendors.
Commission Chairwoman
Jennifer Flinn said officials
need to be fair to new bidders
who would like to bid on coun-
ty projects.
"We need to be fair to all
bidders," she said. "Anyone

Community college

trustees discuss

pending lawsuit


Trustees debate what

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
The Lake City Community
College Board of Trustees
discussed a pending lawsuit
Tuesday that would deter-
mine what state entity would
govern the school in the
future.
Board members discussed
a "friend of the board" lawsuit
that was filed to determine if
community colleges should
be under the Florida
Department of Education or
Board of Governors. The dis-
cussion took place during the
board's monthly meeting.


Two board members at the
meeting agreed neither entity
should govern community
colleges.
Trustees Suzanne Norris
and Stevie Landon argued
that a separate board would
be best, and both said that
idea should be expressed.
"At least they .know, as a
group across the state, we
want our own board," Landon
said.
Trustee Robert Brannan
said a new board may not be
the best idea because it would
create" yet another governing
body and more bureaucracy.
"We've gone from that,"
Brannan said, holding his
hands a short distance apart,
"to that," he said, moving his

New sinkhole measures
two feet long and eight
inches across.
By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
Local health officials
reduced the boundary of a
precautionary boil-water
notice Tuesday surrounding a


large sinkhole in west
Columbia County.
Health officials reduced the.
boundary from five miles
south and southwest of the
sinkhole, off Pinemount Road
on the property of Red and
Susie Roberts, to one mile
out.
Residents who notice a
change in their water are
asked to contact the health
department at 758-1058.


The sinkhole, dubbed
Mimi's Sink, continues to
threaten the home of the
Roberts family. On Tuesday,
officials found another sink-
hole on the property, but it is
much smaller than the first.
The second hole is about
two feet long and eight inches
across, and about 18 inches
deep, said Laurie Windham,
spokeswoman for the
Columbia County Sheriff's


Office.
The new sinkhole is located
in between the two buildings
on the property, in an area not
visible from the road.
Columbia County Sheriff
Bill Gootee said the hole is
about 10 feet from the edge of
Mimi's Sink and is most likely
part of the larger sinkhole.

County looks to have sheriff's complex by April


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com


: Columbia County Sheriff's
:Office employees could be
,working in a new facility with-
-in a matter of weeks.
Last week during the
Columbia County Board of
Commissioners' meeting,
Marlin Feagle, county attor-
.ney, informed commissioners
:that the final contract work to
:acquire the sheriff's new
:administrative complex
-appeared to be only weeks
:away from being finalized and


approved.
In December, Columbia
County commissioners unani-
mously approved more than
$1 million in funding for
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee to have a new admin-
istrative complex in the for-
mer CNB National Bank
Operations office on U.S. 90
East. The building, located
five miles east of Lake City, is
currently owned by the city.
The price tag for the building
is $950,000.
In addition to the cost of
the purchase, commissioners


approved funding and modifi-
cation costs at the facility to
make sure it meets the secu-
rity and emergency needs of
law enforcement personnel.
Feagle told commissioners
the purchase price for the
facility is the same amount
the city paid for the property,
with the addition of closing
costs.
Feagle said he has been
told by the city attorney that
the city is only trying to
recover its expenses.
Feagle described the con-
tract language for the build-


ing as an "as is" "where is"
purchase.
If the contract is approved,
officials hope to have the deal
closed by April 1.
Gootee made a $1.08 mil-
lion proposal for a new sher-
iff's administration building
in December at a county com-
mission meeting where coun-
ty officials also agreed to pur-
chase property around the
facility. The land is intended
for future expansion. The con-
tract work for that property is
also scheduled to be complet-
ed by April 1.


TONY BRITT/Lake City Reporter
The contract between officials for the county to purchase
the former CNB National Bank Operations office for the
Columbia County Sheriff's Office Administrative Complex on
U.S. 90 East is expected to be finalized within weeks.


School Board recognizes several students, teachers


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com

Several Columbia County
residents were recognized for
contributions and achieve-
ments at the Columbia County
SSchool Board meeting
Tuesday.
There was a presentation of


the American Legion Post 57"s
donation of $2,658 for the pur-
chase of 600 classroom
American flags, staff and
brackets.
Three educators who
recently received certification
from the National Board for
Professional Teaching
Standards were also recog-


nized.
Numerous teachers who
were already certified were
present at the meeting to show
their support.
The organization is rooted in
the belief that strengthening
teachers is the most important
action Columbia County can
take to improve schools and


student learning.
Raymond Macatee was rec-
ognized as the Columbia
County School System's 2005
Outstanding Business Partner
of the Year for his numerous
contributions to music excel-
lence in his Scrap to Music pro-
gram.
His most recent contribution


was $1,000 for the Columbia
County Honors Choir.
Macatee received a standing
ovation for his support.
The Columbia County
School Foundation contributed
$1,000 for the Accelerated
Reader Program at Columbia
City Elementary. However,
adults were not the only ones


who were acknowledged.
Students who earned a supe-
rior rating at the District Four
Florida Bandmasters
Association Middle and High
School Solo and Ensemble
Festival were acknowledged.
Several students in the
county will go on to attend at
the state level in April.

wonderful," said Kirkland,

play.
The play opened Feb. 18

POLICE REPORT


Three arrested
on drug charges
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office arrested
three Lake City men on drug
charges as a result of ongoing-
investigation by the multi-
jurisdictional task force.
James Maxwell Rhoden, 46,
of 2858 North U.S. 441, and
David W. Turner, 46, 190
Alpha Terrace, were arrested
after allegedly selling cocaine
to undercover deputies.
Rhoden was released on bond
and Turner was, still at
Columbia County Jail on
lMonday afternoon.
T Also arrested was Johnnie
Lee Short, 68, after a handgun
and drugs were found after
deputies with the task force
served a search warrant at
Short's home. Short was
charged with possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon,
possession of cocaine with
intent to sell and possession
- of cannabis with intent to sell.
Short was taken to the
county jail and later released
S on bond.
"Since January when I took
:office, this task force has con-
:sistently done an outstanding
job of staying on target and on


task with reducing the flow of
street drugs in and through
our community," said Sheriff
Bill Gootee, in a press release.

SR 47 motorists
receive warnings
Columbia County Sheriff's
deputies patrolling the area of
State Road 47 currently under
construction have been fre-
quently choosing to warn,
rather than ticket, motorists.
During a four-day period in
February, deputies issued 75
warnings and 20 citations.
"Usually a warning gets a
driver's attention and that's
what we would rather do. Just
help remind drivers of the
laws," Sheriff Bill Gootee
said, in a press release.
But the practice of issuing
more warnings and less cita-.
tion may change if deputies
don't notice changes in driver
behavior on S.R. 47.

Home show


here to stay

T thousands of residents from
Columbia County and from
throughout the region flocked
to the Second Annual North
Florida Home Show last week-
end. It was a perfect event held in perfect
weather, as the crowds gave testimony.
The Rotary Club of Lake City-Downtown
is the primary sponsor of the event, along
with the Lake City Reporter, Mix 94.3 and
SunState Federal Credit Union. The event
was in its infant stages, but grew up nicely
this year to be one of the top draws for
those interested in home improvement
materials, goods and services.
And there's certainly a market for this
type of activity in the ever-building, ever-
growing area of Columbia County.
* The show grew this year to two build-
ings and also boasted several large out-
door vendor displays. There was a lot to
look at and a lot of information to digest.
There's no better show to be planned
and growing in this region than a home"
show. Our home market and home-
improvement market is booming. This is
the perfect event for our growing area. It
has the potential to be our signature event.
The Rotary Club of Lake City-Downtown
brought the idea to the table and made it
happen. We, were convinced last year and
became the first sponsor. Many in the
community both vendors and visitors -
showed us this year the popularity for an
event to showcase the home-improvement
desires of the region.
The North Florida Home Show is here
to stay. Hats off to the members of the
Rotary Club of Lake City-Downtown. We
can't wait to see the floorplan for next
year's bigger and better event.

Sixty years ago the post
office personnel took pride in
delivering mail containing less
than perfect addresses. There
was no such thing as postal or
'zip' codes.
It sometimes might have
taken an extra day or two, but
letters with just a name and the
city and state on the envelope
would get to the right person.
A few years ago, I sent a let-
ter to a person in care of a very
large company. I had missed
the last number in the zip code
and the letter was returned. I
was aggravated about this for
several years, thinking that
some arrogant postal worker
had decided to teach me that I

had to follow their rules, or
else.
After moving here 10 years
ago, my experience with the
Lake City Postal workers was
so good that I changed my
opinion of the U.S. Postal
Service.
However, last year I discov-
ered that friends in other states
.who had sent cards to my wife
in care of the Lake City
Extended Care Center, had the
cards returned, with no expla-
nation. They didn't know that
the street number had been
changed for the facility.
It doesn't seem to me that it
would take much effort or
intelligence to deliver to a large
facility, even with the wrong
street number.


We have friends who some-
times receive letters from
friends and relatives in
England. Some do not realize
the street number is so impor-
tant, but their letters have been
returned to England, even
after supposedly getting to the
right street in Lake City. Just
recently, a letter from the local
postmaster contained the fol-
lowing sentence: All classes of
mail addressed with the old
street address will no longer be
delivered after March 22.
This attitude makes me wish
there was someone to vote
against, or a competing compa-
ny to deliver our mail.

Other



people's




money

n this Sunday's Lake City Reporter
readers will find one of the most
intriguing issues of Parade Magazine of
the year. It's the money issue. The one
describing the state of the working-
man's economy and the workinghworman's
plight, as well.
It's time to discuss how much money peo-
ple earn in America.
It's always a fascinating read.
How the Parade staff finds this cross-sec-
tion of people so willing to confess what they
earn, I'll never know. My closest friends
don't disclose their incomes. Yet here are a
collection of people from around the country
who openly confess how much or how little
they earn, and they don't care if the world
knows millions of times over in a national
publication. And most of them smiled for
their color thumbnail photograph the maga-
zine also publishes.
The story you can read Sunday details the
yada, yada, yada about the U.S. job outlook,
inflation, the trend in company salary struc-
tures, the struggle for competitive benefits
and how very few Americans utilize their
vacation time to the fullest.
Of course, we're all in too much debt, too,
which refers to previous points that we all
work longer hours, have less money to show
for it and can't afford to take vacations. I'm
exhausted just writing about it.
What makes this a must-read are the
salary confessions, or apparent confessions,
of the more than 130 people that provided
personal financial information for the maga-
zine to publish.
Ana Hotaling, 39, earned $12,000 as a mar-
tial arts teacher in Ann Arbor, Mich.; Dawn
Heltzman, 34, a state trooper in Hamilton,
NJ., earned $100,000 last year; James Baker
is the mayor of Wilmington, Del., and he
earned $91,500.
Fascinated?
I always read the list and wonder what
type of lives these people lead, why they do
what they do and, in some cases, how they
pay rent. Some must be earning income from
more than one source.
Ronald Smith, a blackjack dealer from
Minot, N.D., earned $10,000 last year;
Zachary Rasmussen, 36, a sergeant first
class in the Army, reported earnings of
$65,500 last year. He lives in Burley, Idaho.
Steve Armstrong is an archaeologist in
Kamiah, Idaho. He dug up bones last year to
the tune of $53,000.
Two Floridians got a mention in the arti-
cle. Josef Palermo, 20, is a tax clerk in Fort
Lauderdale. He earned $22,900 last year.
Actor John Travolta, 51, of Ocala, climbed
Ladder 49 to account for a portion of his $25
million in earnings in 2004.
Other celebrities participated in Parade's
silly survey, including actress/singer
Lindsay Lohan, 18, who earned $10 million;
Lance Armstrong, 33, the legendary cyclist,
at $19 million, most of which came in spon-
sorships from Nike and the U.S. Postal
Service and none of which came from his
famed, yellow cancer awareness wristbands
that suddenly are so popular.
Angelina Jolie, 29, made the survey and
reported a cool $27 million in income last
year. Multiple Olympic gold medal swimmer
Michael Phelps, 19, of Ann Arbor, Mich.,
earned $1 million.
These are just a few of the celebrities and
normal people with normal jobs and incomes
that are included.
Who topped the list? Since the suspense is
a killer, I'll spill the beans.
SpongeBob SquarePants. Yes, the yellow
fry cook with a funny disposition and bad
teeth.
In the village of Bikini Bottom ... he lives
in a pineapple under the sea ...
The Nickelodeon cartoon icon brought
home $1.5 billion last year.
Yes, billion.
That's a lot of clams.

Some Facts About

Cancer and Asbestos

Published medical studies
have linked asbestos exposure to:
Mesothelioma Lung Cancer
Stomach Cancer Throat Cancer
Colon Cancer Esopliageal Cancer
Laryngeal Cancer Bladder Cancer
Cancer due to asbeLtos exposure does not
happen immediately. It may take up to
forty years for cancer to develop. Smoking
cigarettes may only have accelerated these
exposure hazards.

If you or any railroad employee you know
have been diagnosed witd- cancer,
compensation may be available.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 2005


SCENARIO
Continued from page 1A

Most were missionaries
returning from southern
Mexico. Ten passengers sud-
denly became violently ill.
County paramedics arrived
at the scene dressed in white
coveralls, blue rubber gloves
and filter masks. Emergency
personnel found the bus full
of sick and uncooperative
people.
"She needs some help, she
doesn't look well at all," one
man cried out.
"Please help me," a woman
called out between groans of
pain.
Luckily, Tuesday's sce-
nario was not real. It was a
drill intended to help train the
county's law enforcement and
emergency responders on
how to deal with the threat of
a dangerous disease or poten-
tial terrorist attack with bio-


logical weapons.
The training exercise was
overseen and organized by
the North Florida Domestic
Security Task Force and
Florida State University's
Center for Disaster Risk
Policy. American Red Cross
volunteers served as actors to
play out the scenario of the
"Beleaguered Bus."
EMS personnel had to
quickly help calm the anxious
passengers. The nature of the
mock disease was initially
unknown to the paramedic.
The emergency plan was
based on the scenario that
some passengers contracted
anthrax in Mexico either
through skin contact or by
inhalation while shearing
sheep during a village festi-
val.
"We are here to help you,"
paramedic Jennifer Boutwell
said over the bus' intercom
system. "Nobody is getting
off the bus until we deter-


mine who is sick."
While trying to figure out
what illness they were deal-
ing with, paramedics tried to
keep unruly passengers on
the bus and figure out how to
transport them to medical
care.
But making their job hard-
er were people moaning, call-
ing out for help and some
with visible lesions trying to
make a quick exit. Eventually,
sheriff's deputies also
Showed up to offer assistance
and contain the area.
Soon, however, with little
space in their ambulance,
Boutwell and fellow para-
medic Susan Hatcher decided
to take the entire bus full of
people to the Lake City
Medical Center where a,
decontamination unit was set
up and waiting for their
arrival. Shands at Lake Shore
Hospital and the Veterans
Affairs Medical Center also
provided emergency workers


to help with decontamination.
"It was good," Boutwell
said of the exercise, noting
the actors were less coopera-
tive than most real-life
patients. "We just don't have a
whole bus load of patients
ever."
Jack Pittman, director for
Public Health Preparedness
for the task force, said
Columbia is the 11th of 13
counties in the North Florida
region that has went through
the drill.
Each time the scenario is a
little different with various
diseases from SARS to
anthrax, Pittman said.
As the exercise played out,
evaluators from the task force
watched, offering guidance
and taking notes.
Pittman said the county's
emergency response is not
graded numerically, rather
the task force gives feedback
based on its observations,
looking at what they did well


and 'what needs improve-
ment.
At the Lake City Medical
Center -a decontamination
area featured a series of sta-
tions to spray and scrub the
passengers.
Some passengers walked,
while others were taken
through in wheelchairs or on
a stretcher by emergency
personnel in full protective
gear.
Sheriff deputies set up a
perimeter around the area,
which made the exercise look
every bit like a real public
health disaster.
However, Boutwell said
one mock patient was able to
escape from the bus, but
added "we got her back."
Harvey Campbell, public
information officer for county
emergency management,
said the exercise is useful as
"the intent is obviously to try
to test under as much of a
real life scenario as you can


without putting people at risk
of having a drill and running
ambulances at full speed."
Though the task force will
send a report of the county's
evaluation to the state and
county in the coming months,
during a debriefing following
Tuesday, Campbell said "I
think all in all the feeling was
that it went well."
"The purpose of this drill is
to prepare you for this type of
situation," Campbell said.
"That's why we do this."
One thing the task force
thought could be improved
upon, however, was the loca-
tion of the decontamination
unit, which was set up direct-
ly behind the medical center.
But from initial reaction
Tuesday, Campbell said the
task force primarily gave
"high marks" to the para-
medics, law enforcement and
the decontamination unit,
which featured teamwork
from all three local hospitals.

Green working on staff, spring training prep


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

With the 2005 football schedule
nearing completion, Columbia High
head coach Danny Green can turn his
attention to putting a staff into place
and getting ready for spring practice.
The first day of spring practice is
May '2, and Green plans to have his
staff completed by the end of next
week.
"I have interviewed 16 coaches so
far, but I ha-ve not offered anybody a
job," Green said. "I will use this week
and the first of next week getting that'
finished. I have interviewed the last
three weekends, and there has been a
lot of interest. I am very appreciative


of that.
"I have got to mesh it together as
best I can and get who I feel like will
do the best job for us."
After the adminis-
tration duties were -
done on his hiring,
Green sat down with
the players.
"I met with all .2
returning players on
Feb. 4," Green said. .
"I did not meet with Green
anybody who was
not on varsity or JV last year. There
were 98 players returning, and we had
84 on day one.
"I went over what we expected out
of them."


Green plans to meet with new play-
ers interested in football on Monday.
For spring practice, all ninth-, 10th-
and 11th-graders will practice on varsi-
ty and the incoming eighth-graders
will practice together as the JV.
"We will readjust after spring,"
Green said. "We won't have any after-
noon workouts until the week before
spring practice because so many kids
are involved in other activities."
Green expects spring practice to fin-
ish on May 17-18, but with graduation
on May 19 at Columbia and May 20 at
Fort White High he has been unable
to get a spring jamboree or classic.
'We have nothing set up in the
spring," Green said. "We are trying to
pick up something on Saturday the


Carter gets combine OK


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com

Jerome Carter was ripping
off power sprints on the
Columbia High practice field
and lifting weights with the
Tigers on Monday and
Tuesday.
Carter was visiting family in
Lake City, one week after
showing his wares at the NFL
Combine in Indianapolis.
Carter is pointing toward the
NFL Draft on April 23-24.
Before he could get on the
combine field, Carter was
sent to the medical lab.
"The first day I went and
got a lot of X-rays," Carter
said. "I had X-rays on my fin-
ger, my foot and my shoulders
and knees."
At Florida State, Carter had
surgery on a broken, finger;
and suffered a small breaking.
his foot. He also had arthrdo
scopic surgery on his knees.
"All my surgery were
scopes, not any big cuts,"
Carter said. "Everything went
good.. I got cleared through
the physical. Basically, every-
thing looked good to them."
Carter, who weighed ,in a
220 pounds, was impressive on
the athletic side, too. His 40-
yard dashes ranged from 4.44
to 4.49, though he was elec-
tronically tied at 4.5. His posi-
tion drills included back-pedal-
ing and other agility tests.
Carter said his one disap-
pointment was the vertical
leap, which he had to perform
after running. He has hit 38-5
in the past, but only did 35-5 at
the combine.
"That's the one thing I will
do over," Carter said.
Florida State is holding a
"pro day" on Tuesday, and
Carter will attempt to increase
his vertical jump. He will con-
tinue training in Tallahassee
until draft day.


Tim P n ;6, .11- 5 '.,C r, r ,F (..:'.i -
Former Columbia High star Jerome Carter is preparing for 'pro day' at Florida State next
Tuesday. Carter was in Lake City to ,visit his family.


The 2005 combine was well-
attended.
"Without question, this was
the best combine we've ever
had," former Cowboys per-,
sonnel director Gil Brandt,
who oversees the annual test-
-ing process, told Ira Kaufman
of the Tampa Tribune. "We


had a greater percentage of
'players run, and that includes
guys who are certain first-
round picks."
Carter confirmed the
assessment.
'"There were 332 players,"
Carter said. "Pretty much
everybody was there some

Carter likely joined that
big-time list.
"A lot of teams asked me
about flying in, but it is too
early to say right now," Carter
said.


21st, when we could jump into a
jamboree.
"Depending on what's happening
with the middle schools, we could
work up a big scrimmage date with all
the teams."
With his long-term recommitment
to CHS football, Green said there were
two things he was working toward.
"My primary goal is to have an in-
house visit with every player and par-
ent on the varsity level," he said. "I
hope to complete that before the fall.
"I also want to get our numbers
back up. I have a goal of 150 players in
the program. We have been close
before and I feel like with our equip-
ment and facilities we can handle 150
players."

Grand

Rapids CC

By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

Lake City Community
College found the formula
for what had been ailing it
much of the season: The
Timberwolves got clutch
hits with runners on base
and pounded out 18 total hits
in a 14-5 win over the Grand
Rapids Community College
split squad on Tuesday.
"Anytime that we swing
the bats
well, we
win," Lake
City coach
Tom Clark
said. "And
the thing -.. -
that was ,
good -to-' R:seI
day, we did
not leave a guy on base."
Columbia High alum
Steve Rassel led the hit
parade by going 3-6 with
four RBIs, a run scored and
two stolen bases.
"I felt good," Rassel said.
"I felt nice and relaxed and
comfortable being out there
to play. I'm just enjoying
being out there every
minute."
Another player who
seemed comfortable was
Travis Jones,, who moved
back into his leadoff spot the
last three games and deliv-
ered a 3-5 display with a dou-
ble and three runs scored.
"I just didn't feel like we
had enough speed up there,
although Matt (Dallas) was
getting on base OK," Clark
said. "I thought TJ was
swinging the bat well today
and hopefully that will get
him going."

Get a jump on strawberry season


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter
In many parts of the United
States people are still digging
out from the latest winter
blast. But here in Florida, we
are the lucky ones ... straw-
berries are in season. Just a
few miles to the east and
south, in places like Plant
City, Ruskin and Lake Butler,
strawberries are reaching
their peak. The usual harvest
period for strawberries is
from February to the middle
of May, with March being the
heart of the season.
In Plant City, the 70th
Annual Strawberry Festival is
under way, running from
March 3-13. A celebration of
the city's most important
crop, the festival features
name entertainers, as well as
a host of community activities
related to the strawberry.
Plant City. became the
'Winter Strawberry Capital of
the World" over a decade ago
when the railroad to Tampa
was built by Henry Plant,
which made it possible for
easy distribution of some of
the sweetest, most luscious
strawberries grown in
Florida. Today, according to
the Florida Strawberry
Growers Association,
Hillsborough County pro-
duces about 15 percent of the
nation's strawberries and vir-
tually all the winter grown
berries.
As if the exquisite experi-
ence of biting into a ripe, red,
juicy strawberry wasn't rea-
son enough to enjoy this pop-
ular fruit, consider that straw-
berries are naturally fat-, sodi-
um-, and cholesterol-free.
High in Vitamin C one serv-
ing provides 66 percent of the
USDA's recommended daily
intake potassium, folate,
which helps the body metabo-
lize protein, and allagic acid,
which cancer researchers
.claim reduces the risk of can-
cer. One cup of strawberries
contains only 55 calories,
making it a perfect treat to
satisfy that sweet tooth.


COURf
A not-so-common dessert Fired beer batter-coated strawberries with apricot sauce is shown. Strawberries can make for a quick snack or a unique
dessert idea.


A fruit that does not ripen
after it is picked, look for firm,
blemish-free fruit. Do not
rinse; cover loosely or store in
perforated bags and refriger-
ate in a cold produce com-
partment for the longest shelf
life. And while it is hard to
keep these sweet treats in the
house, make sure that you.
buy extra to freeze for use in
those months when fresh
fruit is, not readily available.
The easiest way to freeze
strawberries, unsweetened, is
to spread them on a tray,
freeze, and then store in plas-
tic storage bags.
Besides enjoying them
right out of the refrigerator,
the strawberry has a leading
role in many popular recipes.
A rite of summer, homemade
ice cream, is only improved
by the addition of strawber-
ries. Ice cream makers are
very affordable, and many do
not. require the use of rock
salt. For an icy treat that will


please your family, try

Strawberry Ice Cream
(Makes 1-1/2 quart in elec-
tric ice cream maker)
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
Dash of salt
1/2 cup half and half
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups strawberries lightly
chopped in a blender
Combine milk, sugar and
salt. Whip with a wire whisk
until sugar is dissolved. Stir
in half and half, whipping
cream and vanilla. Add to ice
cream maker and freeze as
directed in manufacturer's
directions. When ice cream is
semi-hard, add crushed
strawberries and continue
freezing until desired consis-
tency is reached.


For a low-fat version of a
classic dessert, try this recipe
for

Strawberry Fool
From: The Great Good
Food Cookbook by Julee
Rosso
1 quart fresh strawberries,
cleaned and pitted
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
2 cups nonfat plain yogurt
4 tablespoons honey
2 te-a'.poons vanilla extract
I vanilla bean, split, seeds
removed
1/2 cup strawberry pre-
serves
In blender, puree. the straw-
berries and cottage cheese.
Place the yogurt in a medium
bowl add fold in the strawber-
ry mixture. Add the honey,
vanilla extract and vanilla
seeds. Mix gently but thor-
oughly. Chill. When ready to


serve, place equal amounts of
the yogurt mixture into eight
dishes and swirl a teaspoon of
strawberry preserves into
each.
And for those who believe
anything deep-fried is better,
how about Fried Beer Batter-
Coated Strawberries with
. Apricot SauceRecipe By:
Cook's Magazine April 1990

Apricot Sauce

1/4 cup apricot jam
1/2 tablespoon dark rum

Fried Beer Batter-Coated
Strawberries

2 quarts pure olive oil for
frying
2/3 cup white flour
2/3 cup beer
1 1/2 tablespoons granulat-


ed sugar
16 large strawberries
2 tablespoons powdered
sugar
For the sauce, bring apri-
cot jam, rum, and 1/4 cup
water to boil in a small non-
reactive saucepan. Simmer to
blend flavors, about 4 min-
utes, cover and keep sauce
warm.
For the strawberries, heat
oil in a Dutch oven or electric
deep fryer to 365 degrees F
Mix'flour, beer, and sugar in
a small bowl.
Dip each strawberry, in
this batter just before placing
it'in the hot oil. Working in
batches to avoid overcrowd-
ing, fry strawberries until
golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
Drain strawberries on paper
towels.
To Serve: Dust strawber-
ries with confectioners' sugar
and serve immediately with
Apricot Sauce.
