  • Easter egg food safety tips

     With Easter upon us, many of us will be coloring, decorating and hunting eggs. If you plan to eat those eggs, remember these tips to keep yourself and your loved ones from developing a food-borne illness.

    - Make sure you use only food-grade dyes for coloring. It’s safe to use commercial egg dyes, liquid food coloring or fruit-drink powders.

    - Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before and after handling raw eggs or cooked eggs.

    - Do not keep eggs out of the refrigerator for hunting or decorating longer than two hours.

    Thought for the week: The best way to get something done is to begin.

    Happy 95th birthday to Flora Belle Veirs. Spring better be making an appearance soon. I am sick and tired of snow, rain, cold wind and cool temperatures. The Kentucky Wildcats just couldn’t get it done, but it was still a great season for them.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Beulah Jackson, Martha Childress, Kenneth and Rita Gibson, Jimmy and Janis Rogers, J.T. Sutherland, Susan Hornback, Harlis and Bessie LaFollette, Whitney Green, Steve Johnson and Billy Duncan.
