food safety county fairFair season in Kansas also means food season, and a Kansas State University food scientist encourages common sense to keep the party safe.

For those attending the fair, “the most important food safety step is to wash your hands before eating or handling food,” said Karen Blakeslee, who is also coordinator of K-State’s Rapid Response Center for food science.

“Several foodborne outbreaks have occurred at fairs because of handling animals and not washing your hands. Many fairs offer extra hand washing stations and hand sanitizer stations to make it easier to clean your hands.”

If you plan on selling food at the fair, Blakeslee said a license may be required depending the number of times a year you are selling the food. Information is available in the publication, Food Handling Guidelines for Exempt Food Vendors.

“Food vendors at fairs bring a wide variety of food options,” Blakeslee said. “But, they also need to follow safe food handling guidelines and local regulations to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.”

Some key steps for vendors include frequent handwashing, wearing plastic gloves or using tongs when handling ready-to-eat food, keeping hot food above 135 degrees Fahrenheit and cold food foods below 41 F, and taking steps to reduce cross contamination by keeping raw foods award from ready-to-eat foods.

“They should also have a three compartment sink station to wash and sanitize equipment,” Blakeslee said.

This year, more than 200 golf balls were purchased to raise money for the annual event Command Performance at the Mid-America Air Museum. The golf ball drop occurred on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 3 p.m. but fun could be found on the museum's grounds from 11 a.m. and throughout the day until 5 p.m.

Two Dorothys were present to greet guests. A surprise visit from Gerald French, who wrote “Liberal Lady I-IV: Reflections of a Military Pilot,” and his wife was a highlight. A group from Adolescent Support Services gave a free car/bike wash and the Parks and Recreation concession wagon was on hand to supply hot dogs, hamburgers and other treats.

Winners of the golf ball drop include:

First Place: Mike Andrade, $1,000

Second Place: Jean Mains, two plane tickets to Denver

Third Place: David Cousins, ice chest

Fourth Place: Stanley Cordova, $25 gift certificate to Ruffino's restaurant

Fifth Place: Ed Fuller, movie tickets and popcorn

  • Leader & Times

Liberal spent one day in second place before knocking off El Dorado 12-5 to reclaim a half-game lead in the Jayhawk North.

The Bee Jays gave up a two-and-a-half game lead after dropping three straight to Dodge City over the weekend while El Dorado completed a four-game sweep of Hays.

The Bee Jays had given up leads in back-to-back games to Dodge City while the bullpen struggled, but Thomas Garland took the mound in the sixth inning to relieve Brad Vassar and pitched four shutout innings and did not allow a base runner to help the Bee Jays earn a 12-5 win.

Liberal trailed 2-1 in the third inning but scored five times to take a 6-2 lead.

Chase Chambers walked with one out, and error allowed Brady Cox to reach. Nick Brooks followed with an RBI double that scored Chambers, and Nick Chapman hit a sacrifice to score Cox. Jared Huber hit a two-out RBI double to score Brooks, and another El Dorado error allowed Easton Johnson to reach and Cox to score, and Gavin Wehby followed with an RBI double that scored Johnson for the five-run inning.

El Dorado chipped a run off the Liberal lead in the fourth and tow more in the fifth to cut the lead to 6-5.

Garland relieved Vassar in the sixth and shut down the Broncos, and Liberal added three more in the sixth to extend the lead to 9-5.

Two Bronco errors started the inning and allowed Wehby and Madison Foster to reach base.

EL Dorado's relief pitching struggled, and back-to-back walks forced Wehby home, and a pick-off attempt at third ended up in left field and Foster scored on the play.

Cox hit an RBI single to give the Bee Jays a 9-5 advantage, and Garland followed with another one-two-three inning in the seventh and eighth.

Liberal put the game out of reach in the eighth with three more runs, starting with a lead-off double by Brent Williams.

Chambers singled, and Cox followed with a two-RBI double.

Chapman hit a sacrifice grounder that scored Cox, and the Bee Jays had a 12-5 lead.

Garland strung together three more consecutive outs in the ninth to preserve the win and push the Bee Jays back to the top of the Jayhawk North by a half game.

El Dorado will now be looking to return to the top of the standings in the second of a four-game series at 7 p.m. tonight at Brent Gould Field. The winner of tonight's contest will be in first place, at least until Wednesday when the two teams face off again, and the last regular season game between the two teams will take place Thursday.
